Sal is a warm hearted, gentle soul with a soothing voice & calming demeanor. He has a high level of expertise in training dogs. My wife & I are incredibly happy with his handling & training of our miniature poodle "Lucky". Sal was able to control our very rambunctious dog & calmed him very easily. Sal has a very natural ability to handle dogs. We are more than pleased with both him & his ability to train "Lucky". We highly recommend Sal & can truly say that you get way more than your money's worth with hiring him. He is a true professional & it's quite obvious that he enjoys his craft. You will be very happy with his level of expertise, training methods & overall effectiveness. Thank you Sal for being our "dog whisperer".
We took 5 lessons with Jay for our 4 month old female labradoodle. Since my dog will be about 50 – 60lbs when she is an adult and we have a child at home, a well-behaved dog is very important to us. We searched up online to look for a good reputation dog trainer and came up Jay. My husband spent almost an hour to talk with Jay over the phone. He was very impressed on his knowledge of the dog training techniques so we made an appointment for the 1st lesson in our house. During the 1st lesson, he tried to understand the personality of the dog and identify the issues that the dog has. He is an experienced dog trainer and they built up a bonding really quickly. Over the next 4 lessons, he taught my dog the commands of sit, down, stay, paw, take it/leave it, and drop it in tug war. What we need to do is to reinforcement these commands every day. He also taught us some basic knowledge of how to take care of the dog, how to walk the dog properly and how to train the dog to fit in our schedule. He told us lots of tips how to build up the bonding with the dog so that we can handle the dog easier in our daily life. This is a MUST if you have a dog.
Real professionals and well educated in training your dog! I would recommend to anyone.
Delightful and easy going. Arrived on time and my dog, and I immediately liked her!
Joan is a kind and loving person, and brings these qualities to her superb dog training. She helped Sidney Cha-Cha, our miniature poodle pup, with anxiety and incessant barking. We are grateful for her assistance, and our dogs will miss her presence in our home. Highly recommended!
I will review when the dog training is complete but my first impression was positive, in fact A+. On time to first visit to my home, friendly immediately to my dog and professional in greeting my husband and me and in how she outlined her strategies to get my Lab to jump into the tailgate area of my small SUV.
Wonderful experience with Suzanne who has worked beautifully with our 10 month old dog and was able to give us lots of practical advice to train the dog. Suzannne was also very good with the children, helping them understand their role in the dog's training.
Words can't describe how much Ariana means to us. After rescuing a 72lb AmStaff with behavioral issues, we asked Ariana to help guide us through training our sweet, strong boy. Ariana's tireless patience, humor and knowledge made training our dog a fun, bonding experience instead of a stressful one. Her commitment to ensuring our collective success and a healthy, happy dog was evident in every hour she spent with us. Work with Ariana- she is a joy who also knows her dog training stuff!
Andrew was a pleasure to work with. He provided the necessary tools and tips for training our dog. Within a few sessions our dog 'mastered' the commands. Key to success which Andrew stresses is working with your dog on a continued basis. Training is done with all family members. I'm truly grateful for your services Andrew. Looking forward to working with you again. Much Thanks!
Anna is such a great trainer, mentor & friend. She is patient and always excited to share her endless knowledge in dog training. Not only did our husky, Kodiak, learn a great deal, but she focused a lot of her training on us. Though our training sessions are over, Anna is always so kind and available when we need to tweak some of Kodiak's mishaps. I would highly recommend BesoMomma anytime!!
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.
Extremely professional and knowledgable. We saw immediate results and will be working with this trainer long term. Highly recommend!
Alice is the real deal! During our first meeting, we discussed all the members of the household (pets & humans), from diets, behavior, issues, schedules, to activities, grooming, and much more. We were able to resolve basic commands and for the first time, we were able to master the walk with both pets, all during the first visit. Needless to say, I booked more sessions. I can't wait to see the improvements we will make as a pack over the next few weeks! Thank you, Alice & RufF lOve dOg traiNIng :) From Dylan, Omie and their newly trained (very happy) humans. xoxo
Very nice and seems like she knows a lot about dog training!
The best way for me to describe my experience with Bruce Stone and Interdyne International K-9 would be to say that I feel like I hit the dog training lottery. I was recommended by a friend, but for anyone out there that really wants to see how well behaved their dog has the capacity to be, he IS the answer. He is a phenomenal teacher, extremely knowledgeable and absolutely a true professional in every respect. His always prepared, straightforward, and confident approach immediately gives you the feeling that you and your dog are both in extremely competent hands. It was some of the best money I've ever spent.
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.
Andrea and her husband John go above and beyond to take care of our dog, a shy rescue who needed help to open up. Great value for our money. Our pup is tired out from having so much fun with her doggy friends during her walks and greets us calmly when we get home. She's also now better about welcoming strangers to pet her. Highly recommend!
Jolean was excellent - she really knows her stuff. She takes a straight forward, practice approach to puppy training. We look forward to continuing to use her to train our Newf.
I cannot recommend Adam from Casper Dog Training enough! He took his time to tailor his training to our needs with our dog, making sure we understood what he was doing the entire time. His patience, understanding, and professionalism made him amazing to work with without feeling overwhelmed or pressured. We will definitely continue dog training with Adam, he was a very calming presence and made sure to answer all of our questions and concerns before he finished. He was very thorough and left us with great tips to make sure we knew exactly how to continue to work with our dog.
Truly fantastic and unique dog training experience. Chelsea had so much patience and genuine interest as I spoke with her (endlessly, on multiple occasions) about all of my concerns about my 11-year old adopted Shiba mix who grew up as a street dog in China. Gingko has not been an easy dog for me to deal with, but Chelsea has helped me not only manage but understand her barking and snapping behaviors. She's not just interested in obedience - she wants to help create a symbiotic relationship between you and your dog, so that each of you are happy and safe. I always imagined training to be just lots of clicker-treat-clicker-treat stuff (doesn't work with Gingko, who thinks treats are a trap). But Chelsea's full of clever, practical, and easy solutions that prevent unwanted behaviors from happening in the first place. Can't recommend her highly enough.
I adopted a one year old lab –pit mix a month ago. Soon after I brought him home-I realized that he is not really house broken and loves to chew on everything. I did some research on dog trainers in my area and man- they are pricey. Came across Anastasia’s profile -prices seemed fair plus looked like she was offering more than just an obedience training for the same price. I am so happy we hired her. Sammy learned how settle and get in into his crate with no fuss in a matter of few minutes on a first session, we also established a few house rules and thanks to her recommendation for food – Sammy’s coat improved and poop too. Thank you Anastasia!
