I have a two-year-old Australian Shepherd, Scout, who has a ton of energy and a nearly equal amount of anxiety, a recipe for disaster in terms of training by myself. Enter Nathan. I’ve had two private lessons with Nathan and then a 10-day board and train. When I dropped Scout off, she was difficult to walk with just a leash and collar and somewhat manageable with a gentle leader or training harness. As Nathan pointed out, she had trouble with self-control and was easily distractible. Nathan spent a great deal of time explaining his methods and views on dog training, he listened to my concerns, and spent time assessing where Scout was. He didn’t promise a perfectly trained dog in 10 days or set unrealistic goals for his board and train program. Instead, he explained the importance of his focus on self-control and how that would set the stage for success in her continued training at home and with him. At the end of the board and train program I couldn’t be happier with her progress. She’s learned the place command, settles into with complete ease, she knows to wait at a door before walking out, and is all around much calmer at home and away from home. On our first walk after training, my 8-year-old son was able to walk her with just a collar and minimal pulling, which to me is the truest measure of success of Nathan’s training. I look forward to continuing to work with Nathan and would highly recommend him to anyone considering group or personal training or the board and train program.

Loved loved loved Tonia Maier & her private dog training lessons. She is a very caring, dedicated & professional dog trainer & lover of all animals. Her understanding of dogs & her training techniques are superb. She gives you all the necessary training tools and skills needed for success, in being able to work with your dog on a daily bases, in redirecting any bad behaviors and learning new lifetime skills needed for your dog/s to come, stay, sit & leave it. She also teaches you important socialization tools needed in training your dog. She gives you a copy of written weekly follow-up training materials to keep on hand for continued training that has to be done by the dog owner on a consistent day to day bases for complete success. She has taught me that good dog behaviors are the sole responsibility of the owner. A dog is only as good as the owner trains it & allows it to be. Dogs are, and always will be our very best friends! I love them all. Thank you Tonia for your help, skills and patience. You are very talented, loving, kind and simply the BEST dog training professional I have met. KUDOS Tania - me and Milo are pawsatively very thankful and happy with our continued & dedicated daily training techniques you have taught us. Ciao 🐾 👍👏 😎

Not often will you find anyone who is a professional animal trainer willing to sit on your floor and engage with both the owners and the dog! Ingrid did just that, and now I think that Max would gladly live with her! :) She is kind and gentle and responsive and oh so encouraging We recommend Ingrid without reservation!

I considered a fancy dog hotel, for my recently rescued pet, but my dog really loved meeting Connie. I decided to bring Nyx for the week we were in Jamaica. Connie took her under her wing, knowing my dog had issues with neglect and abandonment from a previous life, Connie cared for her accordingly, as if she were family. I will always bring my dog Nyx to "Auntie" Connie now, whether it's a 3 day train trek downstate to visit family or a 2 week cruise, I know Connie will treat her like I do, like a family member. I highly recommend Connie, she is a wonderful petsitter!

I had a feisty little chihuahua full of energy and behavioral problems. Darlene from Scooters School came to my home to work with my animals together to train my dog and help me work out the issues we were having. The dogs loved her and we now have well trained animals. Darlene provides an exceptional service at a great price! I'd recommend her to anyone.

I have a 5 month old golden doodle with zero obedience training or manners! We sent Luna to Regional K-9 for 10 days and it was a complete transformation! She stopped play biting, listens to her commands, and is much more pleasant to be around! Pat was great! He sent us pictures of Luna and spent time with us when we picked her up to teach us how to continue her training at home. He responded to our questions immediately. Luna really took to him and followed his every word. It was amazing. I would 100% recommend Regional K-9 to anyone looking for a holistic, professional pup training program!

About

Working on the most important issues from the start of your relationship w/ your dog will increase the likelihood of becoming 'lifetime friends and companions. I have worked with multiple breeds of dogs, titled them in obedience in america and canada. I have a depth of knowledge from years of private lessons and running obedience classes. Sometimes in the home is the best place to start and other times it is seeing the dog and partner/family in neutral territory. Consultation by email is free as is an initial phone consult.

My work is different for other people's work who do the same thing as me. I grew up with 3 dog's and have loved each one very much until they passed from old age. I now currently take care of one dog who I absolutely love. Her name is Stella Dora. She was abandoned and abused and her owner and I have been working with Stella and getting her used to people again. It was a success! I take her on car rides to the beaches and parks and sometimes even when i'm not working I take her. Some animal caretakers just let the dog out to go to the bathroom and feed them and then leave. I, on the other hand, am very active with dogs.

About

What makes me stand out from others is that I am a new trainer with new techniques to help teach your dog to be the best he/she could be for you. What makes me stand out in pet sitting is that I love and care for my customers' pets as if they were my own pets and care for their homes as if they were my own. I may be new to both of these industries, but my love and compassion for both of them is as strong as can be.
