Tom and Kathy are not only professional, knowledgable, and friendly, they are also very, very brave. After a free in home consultation, my mom purchased the very reasonably priced obedience training lasting six weeks. She has 4 Great Danes ranging from 115-150 pounds and they can be a little intimidating but Tom and Kathy came to her house and jumped right in. Tom was great at explaining the commands and behavior that is expected and how to correct bad behavior/habits; this applies to the dogs as well as my mom and me. Tom was also flexible in scheduling the training sessions and available by phone when we had questions or concerns in between sessions. He also tailored the training to each of the dogs' personalities and used different techniques or equipment based on their responses. For example, the Martingale collar worked better for one dog, a harness for another dog, and a haltie for another. My mom and I are both very happy with the changes we see in the dogs behavior and will definitely recommend Abby Lane to friends and family. Big thanks to Tom, Kathy, and little Simba!
Jennifer understands the psychology of animal behavior. She took time to be sure I understood the techniques to motivate my dogs to do what I needed. My dogs loved her !
Kerry did an amazing job teaching me and my family techniques to control my dog's behavior. She was friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable about dog training. I highly recommend her to anyone having trouble with their dog.
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 came to our home in Canton to help us with some behavior issues with our rescue Pitty, Diva. She had fear issues with other dogs she encountered on our walks and fear issues with people and animals coming on our property. Robin spent about 4 hours educating us on dog behavior and giving us tools to work with Diva to gain her trust so she would not be so fearful. We have been working with Diva the last few days and have seen great improvement. We had a house guest come stay with us and Diva settled in nicely after her initial meeting with our guest. One of the "aha" moments for me is that if I'm relaxed and not fearful, that will help Diva become relaxed and trusting. We are so happy that we found Robin, and look forward to Divas continued success with Robin's guidance and support.
Angie has taught me how to handle my dog, and in return, my dog is a much better behaved pet. She really listened to my concerns and made a plan to work on each one of them. I highly recommend Angels in the Infield! Professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable about training dogs (and their people).
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!
We got our beagle "Ray" from the shelter. We were having behavior issues and he was afraid of the crate. Barb came to our house and taught us how to train him and make his crate a safe place. We also took her "puppy" class. He now will sit, wait, lay down and kennel up. He is wonderful out in public and loves to go to my son's baseball games. Thank you Barb for helping us so we can enjoy our dog.
His approach with my dog and his methods are in line with how we interact with our dog. He is firm but kind and very knowledgeable
Jennifer is very dedicated , always putting forth her best efforts to work with your animal to improve proper disciplinary needs for you along with your Dog. We would highly recommend Jennifer.
Dave is an amazing trainer! He has been working with my dog for 8 weeks, and I am seeing significant improvements in my dog's behavior. This was also a wonderful bonding experience for my dog and I!
The instructor explained her techniques very clearly. She also helped me to enjoy the training process because it's clear of what a passion she has for her job but most especially the animals!
Paula loves animals.... and it shows in everything she does, from caring for them to feeding them!
Sharon was very helpful training my 10 month old puppy. She took the time to explain the exercises we needed to work on over the course of our training. He was a little out of control with destructive behavior and jumping on everyone who came in. With the help of Sharon I now have a better behaved dog!
Kelly does a great job with our dog, Maria. Maria doesn't get along with just anyone but loves Kelly!
Drew, was awesome to work with. My dogs love him. He came prepared to every session with new ideas, solutions, and suggestions. He is very thorough and has a unique understanding about dogs. We are still working with him and will continue for all of our behavioral needs.
I've worked with vets in caring for dogs/cats such as giving shots, checking to make she he or she is healthy. I've also worked at a pet store hands-on with small animals. Even snakes! My experience is a wide range. I enjoy being with animals.
I am not allowed to have animals (landlord doesn't allow pets), but I am an animal lover. I give them walks, feedings, playtime, and bathing. Thank you for your interest. Please do not hesitate to contact me for more details.
I think I can do over and above. I am willing to do just about everything that has to do with your pet.
I attended Medina County Career Center for animal care. Since graduation/certification, I am looking for employment. I have three yorkies and a cat, so you can see that I love animals. I also have taken cared of horses, other farm animals, etc. when my neighbors are in Florida during the winter months. I enjoy doing what I do. I am energetic, capable, well-trained, dependable and punctual. I also sometimes do house-sitting in conjunction with animal care.
