The best money I ever spent was on Abby Lane Dog Training! When we got Ginger from the pound, she lacked confidence, was fearful, and impossible to walk on a leash. After just six sessions with Tom, our Ginger is now a dream to take on a walk. She has also learned good behaviors around the house by learning proper boundaries and commands. She is happier, and my husband and I are delighted! Tom even went to the dog park with us to work on Ginger's socialization with other dogs. If you want a dog trainer that uses a gentle approach-no fear and no shock treatment, thenTom is your guy. He is punctual, professional, and willing to take the extra time to solve a problem and really get to know the dog. By the time our classes were over, Tom was a member of the family and Ginger was so sad to see him go! I can't imagine a more enjoyable experience. Abby Lane has my unqualified endorsement and I'm looking forward to continuing lessons for Ginger. She is becoming the perfect dog, thanks to Tom!
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.
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%.
Angela has been wonderful to work with! My stubborn dog is becoming more obedient with every class we attend. Wonderful one on one training with excellent instructions would recommend to anybody looking for a dog trainer!
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.
Barb went way above and beyond what my husband and I could have expected. We had a 2 year old cairn terrier that was bred for show, not temperament. From the moment we got her, we had trouble with resource guarding. We took her to two other dog trainers and spent numerous hours and a lot of money trying to rehabilitate her. It was to the point where we were going to give her back to the breeder who would probably have left her in a kennel. Barb worked with us and then took the dog and rehabilitated her which we would never have believed could be done. Barb found her a new home where she is thriving with her new family. We are so thankful that she was there when we felt like we had no where else to turn.
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.
Rachel was a god send for my fiance and I. We had taken our deaf great dane to a training class recommended by our vet, which we soon after realized that this trainers style was NOT for us. A good friend of ours gave us Rachel's info and within a week or so she was in our living room dog whispering our 3 month old pup. Her training style and effectiveness made us excited about training our dog. She has the perfect foundation of the ideal dog trainer. She also continues to be a great help and makes herself available whenever an issue comes along. Would definitely recommend!
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 has a love and passion for animals. Great to learn from for owner and dog. Would recommend her to anyone!
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.
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!!
She's the best dog trainer I know!! You can tell she has a true passion for her work and she loves all her clients. I would definitely take my dogs to her anytime!!
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!
Kelly does a great job with our dog, Maria. Maria doesn't get along with just anyone but loves Kelly!
