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
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!
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!
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.
Joan's approach to behavioral training is very integrated taking into account the dog's environment, diet, and activity level. It's so nice to have a trainer that can make additional recommendations beyond the standard behavioral instructions to include changes in dietary and health needs to improve the training process. We asked Joan for help with our Dachshund/Poodle cross after repeated accidents in the apartment. Within two sessions we were communicating with our puppy to understand when she needs to go out, when she just wants to play, etc. Joan has been a huge help, she's punctual and extraordinarily good with the dogs and brings a tremendous value to the process beyond just learning how to "sit." As with any dog trainer it's important to know that as the owner you're being trained as well requiring a good dose of humility. Joan handles this without condescension and always remains positive. I recommend her for training and general dog care consulting!
Andrew came to work initially with my 2 dogs,doing training at the house and s local park. He spent time asking questions so as to truly understand what I hoped to get out of the sessions. When an unforeseen problem arose concerning the interaction between one of my dogs and my sisters new puppy,even though he was on holiday in America he researched the problem consultanting other trainers and vets before skyping me for an hour to help talk through management techniques. Defiantly goes the extra mile would highly recommend him.
Dr. J has a very different approach to dog training. It works because the dog understands completely what is expected. We accomplished in two sessions what I could not with any of my dogs over the years. The crazy barking is a thing of the past and only appropriate bark is heard. I can walk my 7 month old Maltese and 11 year old Yorkie without a leash. Anyone who has a pet should consider having Dr. J visit. You will not only have well behaved pets, but in my opinion, a better relationship.
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.
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.
Honestly don't know what I would have done without his training; he's help shape my dog into a model citizen!
Kristen is amazing. We were looking for a trainer who could help us with both training and therapy with a 3 year old samoyed who had suffered a carpal (wrist) injury. Kristen's experience as a breeder and trainer of working dogs combined with her experience as a vet tech made her the perfect choice and we're lucky we found her. Kristen primarily works with Australian Shepherds, breeding training and showing, but she is great with all breeds. Do you know she has shown dogs at Westminster? Our Samoyed Lulu had an accident a year ago and her carpal joint had become inflamed. Lulu's stomach doesn't tolerate NSAIDS, and Lulu was in pain and picking up some bad habits. Kristen took over and got everything on the right track right away. First, Kristen helped us find a course of treatment that helped relieve Lulu's worst symptoms without harming her stomach, stabilizing her for the next step. Then Kristen designed a course of training to simultaneously strengthen Lulu's muscles and joints. (Not just her wrist) to better support her weight, while also training Lulu for obedience. Kristen even managed conversations with a local vet to get the right combination of meds for Lulu including gabapenton. Kristen went far beyond what we expected. I can't think of a better resource for training, working with physical challenges , coordinating treatment and doing it all seamlessly. For any job, from basic puppy training to working dog training to complex cases like ours, you won't find anyone even close to Kristen. Thanks Kristen!
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.
Training in walking the dog and preventing from just moping on guests. He did a terrific job! Very patient and explained everything
Our 4-month old Jack Russell puppy Chilli is very attached to us, so when we need to be out of town we do not want to just leave her at any pet hotel. We're so glad to have found Strut Your Pup - Jorge and his family provide us with the most ideal dog boarding service we were looking for. Jorge is very professional, knowledgeable about pets, reliable and friendly to both his clients and their animals. He always takes great care of Chilli, gives her all the personal attention she needs and also gives us a lot of reassurance by kindly sending us updates regularly on how Chilli is doing. Also, at Jorge's, Chilli gets to socialize with one or two other dogs under supervision, unlike in other commercial daycare where she might interact with random dogs every time, and close supervision is also not always guaranteed. We have full confidence in Jorge and his team, and would highly recommend their dog walking and dogsitting services to all dog lovers who care about their dogs. Thank you Jorge!
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.
My ten months old puppy needed some serious training that was beyond me. Sue came to the rescue - just in time, I might add. Lacey, a Flat Coated Retriever/Border Collie mix loved to jump on people and herd/nip me when outside in the yard. She was a quick study and mastered Sue's commands very quickly. A year later she still listens to those commands and now I have no problems when people visit my house or when I am working outside. Thank you, Sue!
Adam is a really nice guy who clearly loves dogs and enjoys working with them. He's a down to earth guy. The man knows what hes doing, he mde a friend in our German Pinscher "Noble" in short order. Addm is extremely knowledgeable and patient in his the training field. Looking forward to continue working / training Nible with him. I would very highly recommend him nd his services for any dog training needs.
I cannot give enough accolades to Dorice. When I was having problems training my puppy wheaten terrier, a few people, including our Vet recommended Dorice. She came to our home and worked with my husband and I and the puppy, of course, for a few hours and by the end of the session we saw amazing positive results. Dorice is the most energetic, upbeat person I know and look forward to our next sessions with her.
Anastasia has been a lifesaver for my family and me. She provides walks, cuddles, food and water mid-day. Our dog had a medical issue that needed attention and she provided EXCELLENT advice and care. She is responsive to all texts and emails. She goes above and beyond. I highly recommend Anastasia if you care about the health and well-being of your pets.
Barrie trained our dog, whom we adopted from a local shelter. She also trained us to be knowledgeable owners. To start the process, she got to know and worked with our dog through a three-day boot camp session, which included a briefing and guidance for us afterward. She then worked with each family member, our dog walker, and our babysitters who interact with our dog, in the comfort of our home. Barrrie now includes our dog in group hikes with other dogs three times a week. She is always available for trouble shooting and ad hoc help. She shows so much compassion for our family, including our new dog. Without her, we could not have responsibly kept our rescued pet because he needed a lot of support for living with a family. He had likely been wandering the streets in another part of the country previously and really needed a loving home. Our original family dog died last year, so we are very happy that we, especially our children, can once again enjoy a beloved family pet.
