I hired Jay because I had two puppies and didn't know how I was going to train them together. Jay gave me lots of helpful tips & helped me to train them. They now know commands such as sit, down, stay & come. Jay answered all of my questions & concerns. My puppies were very excited everytime Jay came to the door & couldn't wait for him to give them treats for a job well done. He made training the puppies fun for my kids too & got them involved. I can truly tell Jay loves what he does.
Sal was wonderful from the minute he arrived. He was patient and dedicated to training our puppy. He made training exciting and informative. We Thank him so much for his help and advice. He really does have such a passion for his profession.
Mary Jean has totally transformed our dog. We started training during his puppy stage and continued into part of his adolescence, so Mary Jean was able to curb some behaviors very early on. Her positive attitude, accessibility, and willingness to help have made her a joy to work with. Plus, our dog absolutely adores her. Mary Jean trains both the dog and the owner. Her advice about how to reinforce skills on our own was clear and easy to keep up with. Our time with Mary Jean is over for now, but she instilled key skills that will stay with us and with our dog for a very long time. We highly recommend The Canine Cure!
Words can't describe how much Ariana means to us. After rescuing a 72lb AmStaff with behavioral issues, we asked Ariana to help guide us through training our sweet, strong boy. Ariana's tireless patience, humor and knowledge made training our dog a fun, bonding experience instead of a stressful one. Her commitment to ensuring our collective success and a healthy, happy dog was evident in every hour she spent with us. Work with Ariana- she is a joy who also knows her dog training stuff!
Being a first time puppy owner Suzanne taught me many great techniques while working with our puppy. She also gave me great feedback and advice on training our puppy. She showed me that with patience and constant practice our puppy's behavior will get better. Thank you for your knowledge.
Joan is a kind and loving person, and brings these qualities to her superb dog training. She helped Sidney Cha-Cha, our miniature poodle pup, with anxiety and incessant barking. We are grateful for her assistance, and our dogs will miss her presence in our home. Highly recommended!
Niamh met all of our expectations. Her expertise in puppy training helped us understand the behavior of our little puppy and helped us enjoy our little companion. Her interest in us enjoying "Oliver" went beyond her initial visit, as Neeve followed it up with calls and advise on the progress being made. Niamh is an asset to Thumbtack !
Jenn, the owner , I so impressive. I needed advice on care and training of my puppy. Her suggestions were practical, realistic and they are working. Jenn is professional, bright and fun to work with.
Jessica has been instrumental in helping us transition to our new life as dog owners! She is super competent/ experienced with dogs, training and dog behavior/ psychology. She is also super reliable, trustworthy and kind. I couldn’t recommend her more.
We hired Alice the dog trainer when we introduced a new Doberman into our pack. My Rottie was not so happy about him and she helped us deal with the new puppy training as well as the older dog's unwillingness to cooperate. She was fantastic and I would recommend her to any family dealing with training issues. Lynne
I have what I call a wild child less than a year old rescue, Murphy. With Nancys guidance and patience with both me and Murphy in only three visits I have seen wonderful growth and improvement in him. She has great understanding of dogs, and his breed in particular, and guides me in the best way to manage his intelligence and his high energy. It is my hope to have a wonderful dog and friend whom I can enjoy and who will enjoy me. With Nancys help, we are definitely moving in that direction. Without hesitation, I would recommend Nancy Pindilli to anyone who is seeking help in training their dog.
Sean did a great job training our dog. She came back a totally different and better puppy. And he treated her like one of her one. Highly recommended!
I began working with Rick about a month ago to assist with my 18-month old pitbull, Petunia. Petunia had become aggressive to strangers (e.g., lunging, barking aggressively) when out in public and in the home and I was very much beside myself with how to address the behaviors. We had attempted obedience training at the pet store which did not correct the problem and she continued to worsen. People were afraid of my little pitty and I was developing a sense of hopelessness and resignation where I no longer even wanted to take her for walks and just figured we would have to live a limited lifestyle with her. As a last ditch effort to address Petunia's aggression, I had a consultation with Rick. He took an hour to meet with us to evaluate her. Petunia aggressively barked and lunged the whole time at Rick, but he thought she could be helped and we signed on for the ride. What a journey it has been. In less than a month, I have a restored sense of hope that Petunia can reach her full potential as a wonderful pet. With several training sessions and several trips to stay with Rick, Petunia is now heeling, is much more under control, is not barking aggressively or lunging on walks, and appears more calm and mellow overall. Rick has also taken much time to continuously meet and/or consult with me and my boyfriend on how to maintain the progress by teaching us how to handle Petunia on our own. We are still in the midst of Petunia's training, but I can see a complete 180 in her and am forever grateful that we made the decision to work with Rick. I highly recommend him without hesitation.
Bruce has been very patient and informative. He has helped me decide whether a service dog was right for me by providing the crucial information that I couldn't find online. The guidance has been extremely reassuring. I look forward to the process of finding and training a dog with Bruce.
We are so happy to have met Debbie! She is an absolute pleasure. She helped me and my fiancee learn how to be the best owners to our new puppy Bodie. She truly cares for each animal she works with and wants the best for both owner and dog. Being a pretty anxious person, Debbie was so patient and helpful. She never left without us fully understanding what is expected and always made sure we could do it on our own. She is a fabulous trainer and person. She even gave us great tips for healthy homemade treats for our dog. I would recommend her 1000 times over to anyone who is looking for help with their dog, new or old.
Roxanne at My Doggie Do Right was wonderful! I sent my 4 month old puppy to her with some aggression and nipping issues as well as a handful of other concerns I had. When I took my puppy home he was so well behaved and the issues I noticed were gone. He is just a regular puppy with puppy behaviors. I was very concerned about sending him to her for 2 weeks and spoke with Roxanne about it. She was very understanding and compassionate. She would send texts, pictures and videos and I always felt comforted. Once I picked up my puppy she still made herself available for questions I had, She truly is a top notch trainer.
We have been working with Gus for the last month. Our new puppy adores him. He comes twice a day to play with her/bathroom breaks. We hope to utilize his training abilities in the near future. Highly recommend Gus!
Great experience! We got some great tips on training our puppies. Also got post visit text to see how we were getting on with the training.
What life-savers!! I had hurt my ankle and was unable to take my very large, rambunctious puppy for his walk. So I turned to thumbtack and I couldn't be more thankful for Your Dog's Best Friend! Not only were they able to accommodate a last minute/same day request, but they tired my fur baby out!! Very sweet people who absolutely love what they do! Thank you so much!!
Gave basic and off leash obedience training to my 130 pound long-haired German Shepherd. Perfect training for a dog that listens better to more intensive training techniques. 10 years later, he still responds to recall, heel, and left or right commands.
Our puppy loved him, we loved him, very professional and reliable. Great response for last minute notice. Very caring for dogs and have a lot of patience
