We were impressed with Tony from day one. I feel that his commitment to us began the day we originally spoke. Which was over two months ago when we contacted him to assist us with puppy training our Bernese Mountain Dog. We are overjoyed with not only the results we have with Tony's guidance but the relationship we have built with Brody. Having a happy, well trained puppy that is going to eventually weigh over 100 pounds was our goal and we have Achieved that goal. It is very comforting knowing that Tony is only a phone call away if we have any questions. Thank you Tony for doing what you love, it certainly shows through your work Brian and Tammy (and Brody)
So far, I am beyond impressed with Virginia’s dog training skills. If our dog not improve it will be entirely on us for not doing our homework. Even after the consultation we saw an improvement: it was as though she’d sat down with our dog and had a conversation about what we wanted from him and he said “ Oh, I wish I had known! You never told me before. “ Highly recommend Gray House Dog training!
We hired Megan to do training in our home and every appointment she has been right on time. Our dog has responded wonderfully so far and while we still have work to do, I am very happy with the progress. Megan trains us as much as she does the dog so we understand why our dog is acting out.
Rose has been providing dog-walking service for my 2 dogs while we are at work during the week. She has been very dependable and reliable, and goes above and beyond when spending time with our dogs. She always sends photos, gives updates, provides fresh water, cleans up messes, and will practice training with them as well. She is truly outstanding and we feel so lucky to know we can trust she is caring for our dogs as she would her own. We are looking forward to a long relationship with her!
Marsha helped us with our 2 dogs we adopted from Mostly Mutts. They have completed Beginner and Intermediate dog training, and she's come to our house to help us with issues around our fence and with our neighbors. She's high energy, dogs just love her! Our dogs walk much better on a leash now and we get lots of compliments on how well they behave out around town and in our yard. We've learned so much from her. Well worth the time and effort to have well behaved dogs! We plan on continuing to advanced and getting our Austin approved so I can take him into work with me as a therapy dog. Best thing we could have done for our mutts! I wouldn't take my dogs anywhere else!
Lynn was very patient with my full of energy dog Zoie. And now after training my dog calms down and does not act out as much. Thanks Lynn!!
After our first session with our Mastiff Mac...we received the tools we needed to make him a better pet. We saw and felt a noticeable improvement in his behavior. We have a lot more work to do but feel Gary will help us all the way!
My dog responded very well to techniques at Spring Canine Academy
Ariel worked with my Chiweenie to get him to take snacks nicely. Sha did a great job with him and she taught me what to do with him also!
I am a dog lover. I was an experienced K9 handler in my past job, and I love to train dogs. I'm happy to work with the dogs.
My name is Jazzmyn Maughan. I am recently married and graduated from college. I am currently working at Conestoga Animal Hospital. I have always loved nature and all of God's creatures. I have lived with pets all my life: cats, dogs, fish, the occasional frog, hamsters, and even a snake at one point. I never owned any farm animals but always loved to visit friends who owned horses, pigs or goats. Although I do love all of God's creatures, dogs have always been my main passion. I have always enjoyed going on hikes or playing catch in the backyard. The canine has always been a big part of who I am and how I see the world. As I grew up and began searching for a career, I always knew I wanted to do something with animals, dogs specifically -- if at all possible. I also knew I loved helping people. Dog training or animal training in general seemed to me to be the perfect fit. Now practically, this didn't seem entirely likely, but it was my BHAG as my dad always called it: my Big Haunkin Audacious Goal. I went to school for biology with a specification in animal behavior. This BHAG of mine still seemed way out of reach until my new one-year-old puppy called for more specific research and attention, leading me to dog training in London's YouTube channel. Everything changed. I had a new inspiration. Somewhere to start, my journey now had a path. I started doing more research on how to train dogs, and my new one-year-old puppy is helping me learn what works and what doesn't. I bought books to help me better understand how the canine brain worked and how they interacted socially and with their surroundings. I look forward to moving forward in putting together the two things in life I've always wanted to do: helping others and helping animals. Prancing Paws specializes in dogs, however I am always up for a challenge in working with other animals as well.
I help dogs and owners bridge the communication problem. Keep in mind that dogs speak their own language, and in every case, it is not the same language the human owner speaks.
Every dog gets individualized training for their specific personality. I build a solid level of communication to ensure that my clients will live a happier and easier life with their dogs.
