Janice is a true professional. She is willing to go the distance & make herself or one of her staff available at all times. Her love for animals is apparent in all she does. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for help with their pet.

Canine Coach is wonderful. His knowledge about my dog just from the way I described him over the phone was extremely impressive, to say the least. It got even better when he arrived at my house! He taught me things about my dog I would have never known regarding his behavior and just about dogs in general. He sat down with my roommate and I and addressed all of our concerns, responding with both recommendations and pure knowledge. In addition, his way with my dog was unbelievable. My dog is an adult shelter dog who has displayed aggresive behavior in the short time I have had him and has already improved after my session with Canine Coach (it has not even been a full 24 hours since our session!). He taught me how to properly handle my dog with certainty and confidence and how to approach situations that a dog with a rough past would find threatening. I HIGHLY recommend using Canine Coach for any and all of dog related training and/or behavioral issues!

Ethan was amazing with my aggressive dog Leo. He worked with him until he was comfortable and the two became best friends, and Leo got to the point of being able to go on group walks! Just incredible.

Peter did an amazing job with my dog, a 3 year old Akita. the breed is known for being extremely stubborn and dominant. I have used several trainers in the last, and Peter was the only one able to produce actual results. and she likes him a lot as well. I highly recommend peter's services .

Ms Waddell gave my dog Heidi her first class. She was informative on her lesson given and clarity of her style to teach dogs is easy. She is passionate towards her profession. 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.

My life was turning into an episode of Pomeranian Gone Wild and I needed help! Jennifer was terrific; very warm and patient. She devised a simple training plan for my unruly puppy that I feel confident will make us a happier family. I am also pleased with her thoroughness in following up post visit. I would absolutely recommend Jennifer Herrera to other pet parents.

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!

About

Positive reinforcement techniques are applied in WoofGang's training methodology. Reward-based training is a non-aversive and effective way of learning for dogs. It facilitates the acquiring of new behavior without causing anxiety or fear. Behavior specialist and trainer Laura Garber, CPDT-KA, strongly believes in strengthening the bond between companion animal and human. For this reason, she views training as an exercise in building relationship, instead of obedience. Such an approach promises better symbiosis and understanding within our family packs.
