If I could I would leave 15 stars! Janice is an awesome person, excellent at what she does and we could tell that within the first 2 minutes of speaking with her over the phone. We rescued a Pointer and we were told a few things by the foster that gave us the impression that our dog Candace was a very happy go lucky dog that loved to run, used to other dogs and was healthy. Well when we got her she was a very fearful (non aggressive) timid and submissive dog, scared of kids and very shy of other dogs. After a few behavioral issues we contacted Janice for the free phone consultation and she instantly reassured us that Candace's behavioral issues were normal and that she could help us. Janice even took our phone call for advice the day BEFORE our scheduled appointment after Candace ripped up her bed in her crate. I'm very happy to say that after a couple days of doing the techniques that Janice showed us, Candace is doing better, her confidence is getting stronger, and OUR confidence as new dog parents is a lot stronger. She really knows what she's doing and teaches the reason behind dog behavior, and shows you how to change your own behavior in order to change your dogs perception of you, and his/her own behavior. One of the best parts about her services is that she's very down to earth and has a lifetime guarantee, so calling/texting her is always a pleasure even with her very busy schedule. Janice came over and spent about 6 hours with us, we never felt rushed and it was like having a friend over the house. I feel so lucky to have been refered to her by another satisfied customer, and even luckier that I cancelled on the hourly rate trainer I was going to hire. Janice is a behaviorist and not a trainer and will explain to you why a behaviorist is more effective at changing a dog's behavior vs a trainer that will teach your dog how to "sit and stay". The money you "pay" her doesn't even go to her, it goes to her non profit that helps shelter dogs and kids. Oh yeah and PLEASE ignore that one negative review. - JP & Andrea

I had an incredible experience and would highly recommend this Canine Coach to anyone who is looking to learn the ins and outs of training your puppy/dog, or how to help strengthen the bond between your pet and yourself. I will definitely be coming back once it is time to teach my puppy how to leash train and he's finished his last round of vaccinations, and I'm more than satisfied with the empathy I felt from my Canine Coach and his understanding of the overall relationship I wanted to develop with my pup! I have nothing but praise! Just look how happy my puppy was after his first session! =] He wen't straight for his toy and not straight for my couch!

Working with Ethan, Kate and the rest of the MixyPaws team was truly a pleasure. Ethan came over to our apartment for a free consultation and got to know our pup. He asked what our goals were in training our dog and recommended a program accordingly; even though it wasn't the program with the most training sessions. The MixyPaws team continually checked in on our progress and offered almost immediate feedback via email when we replied. We eventually hired MixyPaws to walk our dog during the day and Melissa left long and detailed notes outlining how the walks went. Our dog was petrified to walk in the NYC streets when we first got him but after 2 months he's as comfortable as ever, This is a highly professional, organized and authentic service. The MixyPaws team is fully vested in your dog and you always know your dog is in great hands. Highly reccomended.

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!

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. She arrived early, she started training at arrival and stayed the entire time. She gave the dog treats, I will recommend her, she was very professional and very passionate about her job.

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.

I had worked with several Dog Trainers in NYC before I met Pete, and after working with him I will never use another. I had a bottle fed Pitbull, who had severe aggression issues, and it was coming to a point where I was becoming hopeless. That was until I met Peter Caine. Through his strict obedience training, repetition, and constant vigilance Harley became a different dog. I only recommend Peter Caine to anyone that has a dog in the NYC area. His Board & Train will work wonders. Pete makes training fun, and keeps it simple. He genuinely cares about his clients, and will always make you laugh. For anyone that has a dog, whether it is a puppy, or an older dog with issues Peter Caine is the man for the job. Thanks for everything Pete!

Still have 5 more lessons to go and I know she will give me the skills to train my dog accordingly. She is a "problemsolver". Thank you Laura.

Jennifer has been amazing with our dog Meghan, a very friendly puppy but very energetic and not always such a good listener. Thanks to the positive reinforcement, Meghan is a lot more relaxed during her walks and she has made amazing progress with her impulse control. Jennifer's follow up treatment plan after the dog training session was very thorough and has helped us a lot and given us a lot of guidance. I definitely recommend Hudson Barks to everyone!

About

Tom is great! He has so much knowledge and experience with dog training. We are first time dog owners and Tom has helped us every step of the way. We could not have imagined this process going as smooth and easy as it has. We are convinced that Tom has played a huge role. His continued advice and suggestions are always welcomed and implemented at our home. Our 9month old puppy is so well behaved! Many people who meet him cannot believe how good he is and we attribute this training to Tom. We've learned to respects the dog's needs for boundaries and structure. Tom taught us to think like a dog and not like a human, allowing us to better communicate with our dog. Tom has become a member of our family as well. We highly recommend using him for any of your dog training needs.

About

I'm a member and don't know what I would do without these guys. My Vizsla is the happiest pup in the whole world- three days a week our dog gets picked up by the FFC van and goes to "school". We pay less for doggie daycare here than we did to have a dog walker come to the house. The staff/owners go out to their way to please and they also have the best hours- 7 days a week, and open late! When I am not using their pickup/drop-off service, I would drop our pooch off. It's so easy to commute since the dog park is located at the LIRR and they offer free parking! I can't say enough about Fido Fitness. They really care and offer lots of programs and educational classes for your best friend. They also carry Life's Abundance, the best dog food around! And they have the best prices on their dog food. I save $ buying it at FFC then if I were to buy it at the Vet. If you are thinking about daycare or boarding... or just looking for a place to socialize your dog at their dog park... GO GO GO! We got a great community of people and dogs alike that would love to meet you!
