Really cared about being sure we were confident in working with our dog. Great trainers!!
Jennifer is a great trainer; great with the dog and great helping my kids learn how to train dog.
After one session with Kerry, I was amazed how much more control I have had with my dogs. I have two Great Danes, and they can be a little unruly sometimes, to say the least. Recently, one of them has had a couple aggression issues towards other dogs when we go for walks, to the park, etc. Kerry gave me the tools to manage her nervous aggression towards other dogs she perceived as threats. With showing my dogs that I am a leader and making myself more aware of my body language, I am able to put them at ease that I am the one in control whenever we leave the house. Half the battle is making sure you and your dogs are calm and you're the one leading them, and patience is key. Kerry also showed me how to handle my dog when she does get into an aggressive area and how to handle her so she doesn't get hurt, and I don't get hurt. I have done other training techniques with my dogs and other trainers that were not getting the results that I have seen Kerry get within minutes of walking into our house! I would highly recommend Kerry for owners who are really interested in understanding their dogs and understanding their roles in their dogs lives.
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
Robin's a great trainer and dog lover, rescues and pet sits. There are many qualifications I could list but I will say from knowing Robin as I do she always gives 110%.
Cindy is simply the best. My Pitbull is a completely different dog after her wonderful training. We both look forward to our sessions and my puppy loves to show off his good behavior and new tricks!
Barb's training was excellent and very easy for new dog trainers/owners. She makes every exercise fun, easy to understand (so you can practice at home, of course), relevant to every day life for you and your dog, and even has days where she will give you tips for nutrition, nail clippings, and pictures! She covered the basics: sit, down, stay, come, etc, as well as more advanced tricks, like "leave it" "watch me" and showed us how her dog learned to skateboard! I was beyond pleased with her training and services. She always kept me in the loop for potential opportunities for my dog's growth and happiness via Facebook articles and other links, texts or phone calls! Barb is great, and her services are even better! I highly recommend her!
I have been using Jeff as my main trainer for over a year. My dog is off the charts nice and smart. We owe it to him! He is unbelievably nice and uses only positive training methods. My dog understands and responds to over 150 commands.(prob. more) Her name is Lilly and she is a 13 month old West Highland Terrier. He is well worth every penny and then some. Lilly literally follows every command we give her. She is also a certified service dog and TDI therapy dog. She visits nursing a home at least once a month.
Jennifer watched and trained my dog and did an excellent job with her I would highly recommend her, she is excellent with dogs.
Dave is an amazing dog trainer! My dog learned a new set of skills, I learned how to understand my dog, and it was all because of Dave's kind and patient demeanor!
Tina was great and worked the dog and us hard. we all learned a lot .
Not only is Gayle extremely knowledgeable but she 'trains' the owners as well as the dog! Her technique is to make sure the owner understands the simplicity of the dogs mind with relatable analogies. She trained our unruly, untrained 1 yr old rescue to 'sit' within minutes and we have an entirely new approach to training thanks to her and it's working! We highly recommend Gayle for any dog training situation.
My cat Sammy had some snarls around his tail that needed attention. Deborah was the person I worked with. She was incredibly sweet and we had a good chat about the dogs that were being boarded there while waiting for Sam's groomer. She also ended up being the one to groom Sammy, due to unforeseen circumstances. She did a brilliant job and my cat looks great!
Really nice will go beyond what her job is pickedup Samson so he can be exposed to new place I don't drive to to many places so jean offered I am so thankful to have her to help me with my dog he is not aggressive but really reactive to anything new
Christy has been invaluable in helping me with my dog training- from puppy obedience to Canine Good Citizen and to issues which have arisen in learning and competing on agility courses. She advocates a very kind and effective approach to training.
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.
Awesome dog trainer and pet sitter. Highly recommend!!
Kelly does a great job with our dog, Maria. Maria doesn't get along with just anyone but loves Kelly!
Marie-Josee is a very accessible and knowledgable dog trainer. I've been working with her for about 4 years. She provides practical instruction. She manages expectations about what you and your dog will be able to do and acknowledges when milestones have been reached. Working with Marie-Josee, I've been able to get my challenging pup to do things I'd never thought he'd be able to do, like playing nice with other dogs. Thanks, Marie-Josee!
I know that I have something deep inside me that understands animals. Since I was little, very little, I was just always good with animals. By the time I was 6 my entire family was convinced I would be a veterinarian and began using me to train new or misbehaving pets. I would be driven to treat the ailing ones, administer medications that no one else could seem to get fido or kitty to choke down, or bandaged changed changed from surgeries or scuffles from back alley brawls... By the time I was 8, I became the member to sit with ALL our family's pets when it was "that time" to say goodbye at the vet. I know that sounds horrible... to have an 8 year old sitting with dogs/cats being put to sleep, but even at 8 years old I WANTED to be there for them! It was important for me to have it be a calm experience for them, without my hysterical family members... lol Anyway- my point being, I'm not JUST a dog trainer, if that is what you are looking for. I was born to understand your animal. That simple.

I have military experience with training dogs. I was a K-9 handler and trainer. I can reteach and fix aggression problems with your dog(s). I also teach obedience, house training and general behavior problems with puppies and adults. I will also teach the owner the correct ways on handling their dogs.
