Really cared about being sure we were confident in working with our dog. Great trainers!!
We had our first meeting with Jennifer today. I'll admit I was skeptical of her "no prong collar & only positive reinforcement" methods. She was right and got better results in less time than I've gotten with more traditional methods. She's very flexible in scheduling and in tailoring the session to fit my dog. She also recommended some different equipment I wouldn't have thought to use. We still have a lot of work to do but I think I've found the right trainer for my 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%.
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'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.
I am a first time dog owner and the classes were fun, informative and easy to understand for both me and my puppy. You will learn how to train your dog and get lots of practice and feedback in the class. The written materials were helpful.
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!
Was the stranger for the session and Tina was very careful and explained everything to the dog owners prior to tasks. Owners looked very comfortable working with her as well as the dogs
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!!
Excited to take my puppy to his first training classes tomorrow.
Michelle and Lee are dedicated trainers. They are dedicated to the dogs as well as their owners. I took my dog to them several years ago, paid a one time up front fee, and continue to take my well trained and behave dog to them today- with no added charge. All my friends can't believe how well my dog behaves, and always ask to see the new tricks he has been taught. I refer all my dog friends to them.
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!

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.
