Sal was extremely helpful with getting me and my fiance started with some basic obedience training for our 9 month old pitbull mix rescue. He also helped me to understand what she is thinking and what she needs. A lot of people have a mindset that all dogs that are pitbull or a mix of them are aggressive nasty dogs. Not true. But I do recognize fears of others and wanted to tackle having her on the road to understanding basic commands such as no jumping up on people which can be scary for them. I feel it was the best decision to have our dog Summer start off with a private training session first because I wanted minimal distractions of a class. I would encourage that. It will take a lot of work and discipline on our end, but we know Summer will benefit from it. Thank you Sal for your help.

Our trainer , Caitlin was so impressive with her knowledge on dog psychology, she made us feel so comfortable, always being encouraging , positive and patient. We never felt judged in the least , she was so cool and down to earth, exactly what we needed , I would highly recommend them to anyone hesitating getting a trainer for fear of feeling judged, I'm so happy we made the commitment, it made a world of difference with basic obedience in our puppy and 6 yr old beagle loved it as well!

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.

The 3 day introductory dog training course designed by Andrew utilizing positive reinforcement training is a must for all first time dog owners. The earlier you call him the better because he will give you all sorts of info to deal with routine issues. Strongly recommend. Also he is always available should issues arise down the road...THANKS

My husband and I have always adopted older dogs, and with that, comes a lot of behavioral problems. Two of our dogs were especially aggressive toward children as well as other dogs! Within 15 minutes of his visit with us, Dr. J had those children walking our dog down the street with a loose leash. His training technique, that he utilized at the Seeing Eye, is very unique and extremely effective. His care for the well-being of "hopeless" dogs is very obvious. Remember that if you find yourself with an aggressive dog, you are that dog's last chance! He will be euthanized! Dr J's teachings gave our dogs and us back our sanity, well being and happiness! There is hope and it's called CNI!

Sean has been helping us with our Olde English Bulldog named Wilson. We adopted Wilson through a rescue group and he needed help with leash walking, obedience training and separation anxiety. Sean has been a fantastic trainer and resource for my husband and I. We are brand new dog owners and Sean is always available to help us with all of our questions and concerns. He is always emailing/texting us to check in and see Wilson's progress. Wilson has drastically changed since we first got him. His change was pretty much instant after his first meeting with Sean. Wilson still needs a bit of help, but Sean is with us every step of the way. His knowledge and experience and with dogs is unbelievable. Sean shows so much love for Wilson as if it were his own dog. I would highly recommend Sean for anyone that needs help with their pet.

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.

Margaret helped us with our 17 month old German Shepard, Bane. We wanted to focus on some key behaviors while incorporating general obedience. Over the past 7 weeks, we have experienced a great deal working with Margaret. She provided exceptional training for Bane and us as owners. We were so pleased with the progress we were seeing, we signed on for an additional 6 weeks of training. We will be sad when we no longer need her training. Margaret is incredibly knowledgeable about her dogs' behaviors and breeds and is 100% dedicated to her dogs!

We tried two other dog trainers before we came across Chelsea, and after speaking with her on the phone I immediately knew something was different about her, in the best possible way. She talked with us about focusing on what was causing our little guy to act out in the ways he had been, what we could and couldn't reasonably expect (this one was huge, and took a bit of vital human training on our part) and took the time to start us out with a strong foundation using techniques that worked—and that we were comfortable with—to create a lasting change in our rescue dog. You can tell Chelsea loves what she does and that she positively adores dogs and their people, too. Her approach is so affective because she treats dog psychology the same way the best specialists approach human psychology: by addressing the source of the behavior that causes the symptoms, and taking each dog's personality into account. At the same time, her methods seem to work magnificently across the board. She is brilliant, her methods are affective, she is highly professional but also extremely friendly and approachable. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to treat problematic behaviors in their beloved rescue dogs, but in any dog, really—it just takes a special person to have the knowledge and patience to work with a dog who has trauma they can never communicate with words.

Absolutely amazing. I learned more and got better results with my dog in 3 hours than I did in a 5 week obedience training class. Sadly, I can't afford the board and train but if I could, I would do it in a heartbeat. This man is so incredibly knowledgeable and it's evident that he really cares about dogs. Worth every cent!

Laura was able to pinpoint the main issues and provided specific strategies to help break bad habits and could create a more balanced dog. Our dog is a work in progress, but he's doing much better since we are being more consistent with him.

We worked with The Canine Company for one session of dog training. While they are great for obedience training they were not suited for our needs. We were specifically looking for someone who could help us acclimate our new dog to our cats that have been in our family for two years.

I cannot recommend Adam from Casper Dog Training enough! He took his time to tailor his training to our needs with our dog, making sure we understood what he was doing the entire time. His patience, understanding, and professionalism made him amazing to work with without feeling overwhelmed or pressured. We will definitely continue dog training with Adam, he was a very calming presence and made sure to answer all of our questions and concerns before he finished. He was very thorough and left us with great tips to make sure we knew exactly how to continue to work with our dog.

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.

I adopted a one year old lab –pit mix a month ago. Soon after I brought him home-I realized that he is not really house broken and loves to chew on everything. I did some research on dog trainers in my area and man- they are pricey. Came across Anastasia’s profile -prices seemed fair plus looked like she was offering more than just an obedience training for the same price. I am so happy we hired her. Sammy learned how settle and get in into his crate with no fuss in a matter of few minutes on a first session, we also established a few house rules and thanks to her recommendation for food – Sammy’s coat improved and poop too. Thank you Anastasia!
