I am very satisfied with the training I received from Danielle. I needed help with walking my large breed dog, and she taught me how to walk her in a confident and effective manner. She taught me how to use a type of leash called a Gentle Leader. I had to work with my dog (still working) every day using the leash, beginning at a few minutes, and then progressing to a longer amount of time. Merribelle is coming along well. Danielle is very personable and positive. She makes you feel comfortable and treats you and your dog with respect. She has confidence in your ability to be successful, and does not treat you like you did something wrong. She teaches you the methods you need. I highly recommend her to anyone needing help with their dog. She is also professional. She comes to an appointment on time and stays the duration.
He is a good trainer.My dog listened to him and most of the time took the command. I have a lot of training for myself and he gave me great info to do that. I am very happy with Nate.
Best dog trainers and dog training company I have ever seen! I highly recommend them!
If I could give Zach 10 stars I would!! I have used Zach's services for years. He has trained my dog to walk with a loose leash, the word commands of down, stay, sit, halt, leave it etc.. I also have him walk my dog several times a week for extra exercise, and it has worked out great!! My dog loves him and can not wait for him to come. Zach is kind, gentle and very personable and I have never had any doubt letting him take my dog or being in my home. Will continue using Zach for a very long time!!!
With 3 shepherds we are no easy household to take care of. Maile has been so incredible not only our dogs but our home as well. She is very professional and caring, I always try her first when my wife and I leave town. Maile has been way better than the other sitters I have hired and I am not exaggerating when I say way.
My wife and I highly recommend Mutts & Manners for anyone who needs any type of training for their dog. Our Labrador/Boxer mix, Molly, was very out-of-control with jumping on people, getting over excited with visitors, grabbing items off counters, and a plethora of other issues. Nicole of Mutts & Manners met with us at our home to discuss our problem and assessed the situation after watching Molly "in action". Nicole then created a training program to specifically address Molly's bad behaviors. Through weekly sessions at our home, Nicole, was able to train both Molly and my family on how to control her excited behaviors. Thanks to Nicole's program and expert advice, we now have the knowledge and confidence to help Molly to continue her positive progression. Nicole was a God send and we greatly appreciate all that she has provided us to allow Molly to be a great addition to our family. Mark & Anita Callahan Spencerport, New York
Tori was wonderful! We had 2 one hour private lessons to help my black lab Jack adjust to Snoopy our newly adopted beagle. By the end of the second hour, Jack had accepted Snoopy without the aggression that he had first shown. Snoopy is only 17 lbs and I was afraid the Jack, being 75 lbs, would hurt him. Tori knows exactly what she is doing and is confident in her abilities. I highly recommend Tori to anyone who may be looking to help train their dogs.
We were referred to Ingrid, by another dog trainer, a mutual friend of ours. Before we started working with the trainer who referred us, our dog, Storm, was incredibly shy and fearful. Being the giant dog that he is, that was a serious problem. Since working with Ingrid, Storm has made incredible steps towards becoming more confident and outgoing. While he still doesn't much care for strangers, he is now quite friendly towards family, and it is all thanks to Ingrid. She works flawlessly with Storm, sympathetically guiding his feelings (of which he has many) towards a more optimistic and friendly outlook on life, and family members. She is very friendly towards both people and animals, and very unassuming: not demanding anything that the either one is not ready to do. Her results are excellent.
Lisa has been our petsitter for years. She is great! Our dogs love her and we feel at ease knowing our beloved dogs are well taken care of when we are away. We recommend maceydoo pet care services. Marianne T
Kristine watched our dog for a week. She sent daily texts with photos of Eddie - just a great touch to let us know all was well with our dog and our house! Thanks Kristine!
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 🐾 👍👏 😎
I cannot say enough positive things about Pat. I highly recommend him and his program(s). My dog Judge (a former shelter dog) came home from three days at Regional K-9 with Pat a changed dog! He not only learned great leash techniques but basic obedience and communication as well. The best part, however, is that Pat treated him like his own dog. He has also maintained constant contact since we left and has continued to give us tips and pointers. Pat and Regional K-9 are totally worth the expense; having a well-trained dog is priceless.
Carrie recently spent a week with our two dogs, at our home. She was so easy to work with! Carrie came out to meet the girls in advance, was thorough in preparing us for her stay and made us feel completely at ease about her upcoming visit. She was responsive when I had questions, and sent me daily pics and updates when we were away. We are so happy with Carrie we would ABSOLUTELY recommend her to anyone who needs a loving pet sitter. We will definitely be asking Carrie to stay with us again in the future! Thank you, Carrie!!!
After my dog died I contacted Wendy for advice in adopting a "second-hand" dog. After a lengthy consultation I invited Wendy to participate in the selection process at a near-by shelter. Her knowledge and insights were incredibally helpful. I have had my new dog for over two years. We are a great match. Thanks, Wendy!
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.
Jeannette Potter is perfect for dog caring/walking, etc. She treats each dog like he, or she, is her own. She's directly responsible for me adopting my Husky/Shepherd, Nymeria, who gets along so well with her dog, Blue. You can't go wrong with choosing Jeannette to care for your pride & joy!
Becky has been quick to respond to calls for updates She is great about updating you regarding how your pet is doing She follows owner's wishes about house rules / consistent training methods Home and crate kennel are kept clean - she obviously cleans up after playtime / feedings etc... She had great suggestions for emergency planning in case she had to get pet to a vet or animal hospital right away She is observant and makes suggestions obviously with the pets best interest at heart It is very apparent that she adores animals as seen during the time she interacted with pet during visit(s) She is conscientious about the safety of your home - assuring home is locked and secure before leaving She is friendly and cooperative Becky has only been dog walking for me starting this week so it's quite a new experience yet, but so far I could not grade her any less than outstanding
Chris Velez is the most competent, knowledgeable, and reliable dog trainer there is! I have seen him work with a variety of breeds all of different personalities and behaviorial issues. He amazes me each time in his ability to quickly assess the dog's problem and correct it. He consistently gets a dog obeying him within minutes as he seems to have a magical connection with all canine. Not only that, but his demeanor and disposition with the human owners is equally excellent as he can easily teach them what needs to be done in order to maintain the correction. His attitude is outstanding...always with the motivation of helping others...not making money.
Holly is a certified dog trainer. She has personally trained my chi-pom in basic commands of sit and stay as well as leash walking. She is very down to earth and personable. I would highly recommend her for these services.
