Tom was fabulous to work with and did an amazing job training my dog!! So happy I went with him! The first time Tom was with my dog she wouldn't even walk! She is now a great dog from an obedience standpoint and loves going on walks with my family! Couldn't be happier and highly recommend him as a dog trainer!

We have a puppy that we were struggling with potty training and excessive barking. In fact, for the several months that we had him, I somehow managed to train him to go inside the house - rather than outside. It was stressful on everyone. Poor dog couldn't understand what I wanted, humans were frustrated. We had to go out of town and decided to use that time to send him to a dog trainer for help. Jennifer had him for a little over 2 weeks, training him in her home. When he came back he was about 75% of the way trained to potty outside. We still have accidents, but it was an immense improvement and got us on the right track. Jennifer also worked with his barking. She was able to get him to the point where if she said 'quiet' he would stop barking immediately. That being said, he doesn't always do that for us... but it is better than before and a work in progress. Basically, she took a dog that we loved, but were beginning to think that we'd made a huge mistake in getting and helped us realize his potential. We still have work to do - but Jennifer has been very helpful in answering questions and giving advice.

Very good trainer. My dog / puppy was biting she showed me why was needed to stop this behavior. It did work. Very personable and makes you feel comfortable. Good price also. Well worth your money. This is my baby that she has helped

My husband and I got our Border Collie (Isis) when he was 8 weeks old. We started training classes with Cindy soon after. Isis is almost 10 years old now.over those nine plus years we went through basic, Intermediate, clicker, canine good citizen, agility, o-gility...pretty much everything Cindy offers. The classes are fun and informative, a great bonding experience for you and your dog. Once we ran out of classes we just kept going back. Cindy is an excellent teacher and trainer. You will learn just as much as your dog if not more. Isis loves going to "school" as we call it. Just saying the word "school" to him makes his ears perk up then he dashes to the back door ready to go. Cindy makes dog training (school) something to look forward to every week. Thanks Cindy.

Having had dogs before, I had a basic understanding of the time and effort that goes into training a dog. It has been many years since our last dog and this time, training a puppy also meant training children to the same routine that we want the dog to learn and grow with. Working with Jeff has been a pleasure. He has provided me with good reminders as to how I need to approach our puppy. He has also provided me with my one-on-one training, so that I know how to instruct my wife and kids in their approach to our puppy. Having a dog in the house allows for great companionship as well as security. Having a dog that respects your authority and responds to your commands allows you to have a smooth interaction and a peaceful home!

Barb is amazing! I had a senior dog that required a lot of medication and specific care. I do not have family in this area to help me with my dog. There were days were I worked long hours or I had to leave town. I would call Barb and she was always willing to help. My dog had an intestinal disease and kidney failure. She took ten different medications a day and at specific times. Barb ALWAYS made sure my dog was taken care of. I knew if my dog needed anything Barb would handle it. Barb was the only person I trusted with her. I don't know what I would do without Barb! She is passionate about her job and is very trusting.

Sissie is a wonderful person and excellent dog trainer. She's helping me get over some fears I have with multiple puppies and teaching me how to be the alfa along with training my puppies.

Excellent experience. Gina did a great job walking us through potty training our dogs. She really knows her stuff and the dogs relate well to her. Gina also does a great job with children. She has a former teaching background. As a result, she can really get the dog training points across to the children as well as the owners. Would highly recommend a few sessions with Gina.

I have a golden retriever that was pulling me down the street and beagle who was aggressive. We trained at Lorenzo's with marcus and he was amazing. He helped us gain control over our rambunctious dogs. He even got my beagle to stop being afraid of every. Since then we haven't had any more accidents in the house and walking down the street is actually fun now. I would recommend marcus to anyone who wants a dog you can take anywhere and not have any worries.

Called when they were on their way. Removed a lot of dog waste from the home! So thankful for them so I do not have to do it. My elderly mother uses them as well since she isn't physically able to do it! Would definitely recommend!

About

I have four dogs of my own, three dachshunds and one English bulldogs which all require a lot of attention and responsibility. I love pets and am responsible. I am not taking summer classes and would love to pick up something extra to do with my time, especially something I would enjoy like being around pets.
