Excellent. Great listening skills, very perceptive with a great knowledge about canine behavior — in particular— rescue dogs. She gave some sound advice on acclamating a new rescue dog with our dog Trixie that has been with us for 8 years (she is 10). Her helpful techniques and insights have been paying off.

We were looking for a trainer for our 7 month old puppy for behavior training. We had one visit so far and were very happy with the information we learned. I would recommend coexisting canine training..

Jay is an excellent trainer that will make your dog behave better and understand who is the boss. My 12 year old twin girls had a lot of fun working with him and our 4 month old Golden Retriver. Jay gives you written documentation of what you worked on for reference. The documents are excellent to refer to when needed. Best of all the in house training of your dog in their own environment makes a big difference. It is individual gaining, not a group session like the pet stores. I would definitely recommend Ruff Adjustments. Larry and Cathy Meyrowitz

I have the trainers with other dogs come in three times a week for two months and didn’t come close to getting the results that I got with Jay after five visits. He was prompt courteous and very patient with not only the dog but with me as well. I have a two-year-old daughter who Jay was absolutely fantastic with and integrated her into the training with the dog. If you care about you dog and want the best training possible cal Jay

Jay is a professional that has a passion for developing relationship with the pet owner and the animal. My 5 month old female Maltese loves Jay and enjoyed her private dog training sessions that involved basic obedience commands from sit, down, stay, leave it , come and etc. Thanks Jay for your help and support. The 5 week training has been a SUCCESS.

She was very patient with my dog, my dog gravitated to her very quickly, she showed me different techniques to use with my dog to help my dog with his aggressiveness.

Joan was good, she came to our home during a snow storm and arrived extra early to training our 3 month old Shih Tzu. Joan is friendly, very knowledgeable about nutrition and training for dogs. She brought lots of treats and toys for our puppy to play with and she spent time getting to know him. By the end of session puppy was sitting on command.

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 !

Neeve did an excellent job with my dog. We began to see a change in his demeanor almost immediately. She was extremely positive and worked with me to come up with a realistic plan for my dog. We discussed followup visits and training. She worked around my schedule. I highly recommend Neeve and her dog training skills.

Our new rescue pup Roxie needed basic obedience training and we discovered Suzanne Rodda while searching the internet for local dog trainers. Suzanne knows her stuff ! We have worked with her over the last month and a half and the difference in Roxie is obvious. Suzanne's approach is to not only train your dog, but to train YOU to work with your dog as well. It's a win win combination. We had a few challenges facing us along the way BUT Suzanne's flexibility and commitment to us made working with her easy and a pleasure. She has our recommendation as an excellent trainer.

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!

Hailey R.

Ariana was absolutely amazing!!! She trained our dog to become a service dog and had incredible success. She spent whatever time was needed, never once looking at her watch or paying attention to when the hour was up. She genuinely cares about her work and the animals she works with. We will continue to work with Ariana even now, after the main training is complete. No recommendation will do Ariana justice, she genuinely is incredible!

Sarah watched my dogs for 10 days about a month ago. I have two dogs and work from home so they have beyond extreme separation anxiety, so I was very tentative to travel, but had to leave the country so taking my dogs with me was not an option. A close friend of mine recommended her to me and I tried it. I am so beyond grateful for Sarah and her services. She brought my dogs everywhere with her, fortunately she has a job allowing her to bring them to work with her, she brought them to local dog parks and even brought them to a dog bakery to pick out their own snacks and then stopped at PetSmart to let them pick out some new toys, much more than I would ever expect any petsitter to do. She kept me updated sending me at least two texts with pictures of my babies and responded to all my messages. My female dog, Madison, takes a while to warm up to people and can be snippy, Sarah had no issues at all with her and Madison trusted her within minutes of Sarah watching her. I returned home to a wonderful picture collage of my dogs "Vacation with Sarah" and them happily asleep in their beds snuggled with their new toys, I have Sarah routinely come take them on trips now as they love to leave the house and adventure with her, they always come home super happy and then sadly walk around for at least an hour after she leaves. I couldn't have found a better pet sitter if I had duplicated myself! She truly is amazing

I have only used Sarah once so far but will not hesitate to again. I moved into a new City and immediately needed to be out of town and have someone lined up to take care of my dog. It could not have been more chaotic with the move, a Holiday, and the last minute request and Sarah was incredibly accommodating for the whole experience. When I arrived home my dog was happy and clearly well taken care of. I will absolutely be calling her again in the future.

Fantastic from start to finish! She responded immediately to my request and we scheduled a mutually agreeable time. She had car troubles so it was a little later than originally scheduled but she kept in contact with me so I always knew what was happening. When she arrived to groom my Yorkie she was ready, friendly, professional, and listened to what I wanted instead of telling what she would do (I've had groomers who have done that!). My dog was comfortable the whole time and he looks fantastic!! I will definitely use her for our next grooming!

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.

I came to Sean, with my beautiful, sweet, goofy yet incredibly scary 5-year old pit mix that I had recently rescued. He had never been trained before or truly cared for and came to me with a rap sheet and the behavior to prove it. He is a big dog. He did not trust anyone or anything, was a nervous wreck and had human aggression that put me so on edge we couldn't really function as a unit, nor could I trust anyone else around him. He needed help or else he wouldn't last with me or with anyone else and I knew this was his last chance. I was overwhelmed with uncertainty and fear and exasperated by the trainers and advice that I was coming across. Needless to say, by the time we got to Sean, I didn't have much faith left at that point. I was so hesitant to send my dog to a board and train and I just did not know what to expect at all. And let's be honest - the price is scary for little people like me who really don't have that kind of money to throw around. I bought my English Bulldog from a breeder for that price and trained him at Petsmart, lol! It did not work but he's been mostly easy his whole life. I was so uneducated on proper dog training. I was scared, lost, we needed help and I was determined not to give up on this dog. I put everything I had into trusting Sean with him and I can absolutely say that it paid off for the both of us. He came back a different dog with confidence, attentiveness and a calmness that I never could have achieved on my own. He is a work in progress and always will be, but the foundation that Sean established for us is exactly what I was hoping for. It's only been a few days since he came home but I already feel such a difference in his behavior and our relationship. Sean was able to develop a trust that did not exist before. He trusts me now and respects me and has become so chill, it's just amazing. Sean is a very knowledgeable and realistic trainer that will instill the skills and confidence in you and your dog in a very straight forward and easygoing way. He's unlike any other trainer I've ever worked with before and is the only one whose methods and advice I know will stick with me forever. He teaches in a way that is easy to understand and what he practices just makes sense in the real world. He sends informative and useful reading material and posts videos online throughout the training to keep you engaged and educated. It is extremely helpful and good for visual learners like myself. I am so glad that I took the leap and if you're reading this and my story sounds familiar, then you should too. We couldn't thank you more Sean.

Our experience with City Wolves NYC and owner Sean has been outstanding. Sean’s knowledge of training and behavior modification as well as commitment and concern for the dogs is second to none. He is truly passionate about his work and most importantly it doesn’t stop after the training sessions or residency. We adopted a 6-month-old pit mix and after about 4 months he was developing a bunch of bad habits including aggression towards certain dogs, issues with skateboards and scooters and anxiety with small spaces; not to mention his “defiant” behavior at home. We had several “positive reinforcement (treat) trainers” which was not working and things were getting worse by the week. I happened upon Sean training a dog in my neighborhood and it couldn't have come at a better time. The 4-week residency program at City Wolves was a game changer for Otis and us and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a well socialized and behaved pooch. He came back a much more confident dog knowing basic commands (place is my favorite) and has all but eliminated the behavioral and socialization issues. Just as important (maybe more), Sean conducts several one on one workshops with the owners making sure you obtain the necessary skills and knowledge to maintain and advance your dog’s level of training. Sean continues to be an invaluable resource for everything from continued training, behavior adjustments to diet questions and recommendations. Otis has never been better and we are now proud owners of one of the most well behaved dogs in the neighborhood. Highly Recommended City Wolves NYC!

The best way for me to describe my experience with Bruce Stone and Interdyne International K-9 would be to say that I feel like I hit the dog training lottery. I was recommended by a friend, but for anyone out there that really wants to see how well behaved their dog has the capacity to be, he IS the answer. He is a phenomenal teacher, extremely knowledgeable and absolutely a true professional in every respect. His always prepared, straightforward, and confident approach immediately gives you the feeling that you and your dog are both in extremely competent hands. It was some of the best money I've ever spent.

I reached out to Josh for help because my dog would lash out at other dogs when we went for walks, hikes, etc. I was very pleased with his work! He arrived on time, earlier than expected, to really make sure I got the most out of my session. The quality of his work is very professional and you could tell he truly cares about helping you and your dog! He is very knowledgeable in numerous different behavioral issues, which was impressive. He taught me how to take control of my dog and now my dog is doing much better socially. Josh also responded to my emails in a timely mannner when I would have quick questions. I would highly recommend this service!!

I can't say enough good things about Dedicated Dog Training. Since our very first phone conversation, James, has been helpful, knowledgeable, and understanding; even going above and beyond to offer some extremely helpful tips on surviving my first few days with my German Shepherd rescue. Before working with Dedicated Dog Training, my dog had no obedience training. He didn't know sit or stay, he was wild and he basically pulled me down the block on his leash. Now, after several weeks of training, he listens to all the commands, his energy is focused on being obedient and he walks on his leash like a perfect gentleman. We've even started to work on off leash commands! Working with James has given me the tools to be a good dog owner. He gives you the knowledge, the foundation and the confidence to train your dog the right way. Not to mention, he is always available to answer any and all questions or concerns you may have. Dedicated Dog has done wonders for me and my dog. I would absolutely recommend them to everyone!

We got the great pleasure of working with James to train our 9 month old pitbull puppy. When he started working with us, Arya was not following commands well and we didn't exactly know what to do to manage her. He introduced us to the e collar which definitely helped to train her to become more obedient. While it is still a work in progress, and more consistency needs to be done on our part, we have noticed Arya following our commands better. Thank you to James at dedicated dog training for his professionalism, patience and timely responses to all of my crazy emails!!
