Nico is absolutely incredible. My dog has come so far and truly enjoys his training. I used to pull my hair out over my dogs behavior, but since Nico came along my dog is patient, focused, and always eager to learn something new. I will definitely be continuing to advanced training with Nico.
Janice has an excellent knowledge of dogs and their behavior. My barkers were quickly calmed by her gentle manner, and the most anxious pups were eating out of her hand and doing tricks at her request within the one visit. Changing the behavior of the humans in the household will take a bit longer, but we expect, with consistency of our new system, to be able to improve the behavior of the pack.
We are first time puppy parents and our fur baby is a handful to say the least. When searching for a trainer, Deb immediate won we over by asking to talk via the phone. She breaks it down so we can understand his behavior from a dog's mindset. She is very invested in our mental health and our puppy's overall well being. Highly recommend!
So glad we hired Anna. She helped us to understand that our dog was anxious, and not aggressive, and gave us invaluable advice on how to work with him and work to break unwanted behaviors. The time she spent with us was informative and enlightening. While we have always tried to be responsible and attentive pet parents, Anna helped us identify areas where we were subconsciously giving our dog the wrong cues, as well as being inconsistent in our day to day expectations of him. Her follow up after the appointment has been thorough and much appreciated. She emailed us the same evening with a run down of all the points we discussed, followed up multiple times in the days following to see how things were going, and offered encouragement and advice. All around a wonderful experience and though it is still early after our appointment, we can already see improvements in our dog's behavior. I look forward to watching not only our pup, but us as parents, grow and learn.
Steve was so excellent. He came out on extremely short notice and spent hours with me and my dog, going over not just what to do to train her but why each training tool/technique was important for my dog's safety and wellbeing, as well as the whole family and neighborhood. I would never have realized how many behaviors I was exhibiting that were giving my dog the wrong message, and thanks to Steve we are well on our way to a happier and calmer doggie life! I feel confident that I know how to handle my dog's behavior, and better yet I know how to behave around her to make sure she knows she is safe and cared for. I am so grateful.
Marion is very knowledge in her skills. She is always very responsive to me and we make our schedules work. You can tell she loves her job and does great work with my dog.
Within one visit there was a significant positive change in my dog's behavior. I know there is still work to do, however, this small change has made a big difference in our lives. I look forward to learning more how to train my dog.
We have used Margaret to help acclimate our new rescue pup into our home with our six year old Shih Tzu who is the Queen. From the first visit she offered practical tips on managing the pups behavior. There are four adults living in our house and she was keenly aware of how that might impact the consistency of what we did with our new puppy. Each week she would visit with all four of us and made us feel more comfortable with what we were doing and we could see the progress. It was more like Margaret was at the house visiting and in more of a conversation provided us excellent guidance and feedback and answered all our questions. It never felt that we were at a lesson. She has regular as well as four-legged people skills. We would enthusiastically recommend her!
Jordan Is AMAZING!! We had our little boy "Spirit" groomed 4 days ago and he is like a BRAND NEW KITTY NOW!! So, of course, Spirit looks great. And, In fact, we have never seen him look better...ever. Jordan took care of EVERYTHING that one could possibly want done with grooming a cat. Therefore, her expertise in the area of grooming, is quite-evidently-obvious!! HOWEVER, there is more than that, that goes along with "Jordan's Touch"...much, much, more. Jordan has a way with animals, that is very, special. She has a gift. After being groomed by Jordan, our little Spirit has a brand new confidence about himself and his surroundings; He is vastly more energetic; And, he clearly has an overall better sense of well-being and happiness with life....all after being groomed by Jordan. My wife and I really can't get over it. We are incredibly happy with our entire experience!!! We both, HIGHLY RECOMMEND JORDAN for any and all of your " Little Baby's" grooming needs. Thank You for Reading, Have a Wonderful Day, Danny and Sharon Holbrook and Family-
Only had one session so far and we are highly impressed! We learned about our puppy and saw improvements during the first hour. We are excited to continue with our "homework" and look forward to our next session with her.
No exaggeration -- Emma Keeler is the BEST dog walker I've ever had. But she's much more than just a dog walker -- thanks to Emma's training and behavior expertise, my dog and I can communicate more effectively, and our relationship is now practically stress free. Emma is kind and friendly, and truly invested in the well-being of ALL her clients -- both four- and two-legged :) I'm so glad (and VERY thankful) I found her!
Training my dog with DeNovo Canine was a wonderful experience. Kayla makes everything so easy and simple, even for first time owners like us, and now my dog listens to every command. We get compliments everywhere we go about our dogs behavior and could not be more thrilled with our results!
Ryan is an excellent trainer. During the training sessions Ryan was extremely informative. He is very well educated in dog behavior and how to correct problems. Also Ryan sets rules for you and your pet to follow for a lifetime. My dog is very well behaved with people in and out of the home thanks to Ryan's expertise.
Great experience working with Mr. B! Patient with both my dog and myself, collaborative and professional. Highly recommend!
I couldn't be happier with the services Bridget provided. When it comes to knowing how to communicate with a dog, Bridget is phenomenal. We contacted Bridget after she sent us an offer to help us with our dog Kody through Thumbtack. We had recently adopted Kody (7 month old Male Siberian Husky) as a playmate for Dakota (6 month old Husky). We later found out he had been chained up outside for most of his short life. He had no kind of guidance or training. He turned out to be a handful, he would run for the door whenever it opened, he would counter surf for anything on it, he snatched a plate of chicken right out of my hand, he would dominate his playmate Dakota, he would take toys from all 3 of our other dogs and he would nip at your hand & back talk you whenever you try to correct him or try to get him to stop doing something. Bridgetâs offer was a set price for 3 to 4 hours of her time to help teach us how to communicate with our dogs & help us teach them to be a better dog. When I spoke to Bridget about helping, my main concern was Kody & a little with Dakota (with the way they played). When Bridget came to our house she seen some issues with our other 2 dogs Nakita (12 Yr. old Husky) & Fiona (4 Yr. old Min. pinscher). She helped us with all 4 dogs and stayed for 6 hours. In my opinion, she went above and beyond what we expected. I would say 60-80% of the training was for us. Showing us how to handle the different situations and get the dogs to respond the way we wanted them too. Bridget is very knowledgeable when it comes to a dogâs behavior. She spent time on each issue we were having and made sure we understood why we were doing the different things we needed to do to correct the dogs behavior. Within 5-10 minutes of putting food on the floor, Bridget had Kody lying on the floor while she walked over and talked to us and Kody never bothered with the food. We only had Kody for 2 weeks when Bridget came to help us. In those 2 weeks we almost found Kody a new home because he was just too much to handle. Thanks to Bridget, we kept Kody and he is doing SO much better. He is not obsessed with food anymore, He only got on the counter 1 time (took an empty plastic bowl), he does great on walks (which he loves to do). He is by far a much better dog then he was a few weeks ago. Bridget is exceptional in the way she communicates with the dogs. She has a way about her that the dogs just respond to. She is a down to earth person that is just great to work with. She makes you feel comfortable while teaching you and your dogs, which makes it much easier to learn. She was a blessing to our family and she could be one for yours too. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Bridget for any help you may need with your pet. Thank You Bridget Bruce, Julie, Nakita, Fiona, Kody, Dakota
Loren is an absolute find! Having used dog sitters before I was never so comfortable leaving my pack in her care. She provided me with updates and videos every day and was so wonderful to my dogs! You can completely feel the love she has for animals and the care that she takes to make you comfortable while away is second to none! Awesome job! David
I have known Lynette for over 20 years, and have never met or known anyone as kind and loving. She treats every animal with great love and tenderness. After watching her with her dogs-I finally decided 10 years ago to get my own dog, one of the best decisions ever!!!! If you are fortunate enough to have her take care of your baby(I mean pet), count yourself as one of the lucky ones.
My dog responded very well to techniques at Spring Canine Academy
