Tony has been instrumental in assisting/teaching/guiding my girlfriend and I with two rescue pups that we brought up from the South. From the start, he walked right into our house and knew exactly what our dog would do and what it would take to get him to the next level. He is very patient, but is also very honest when he needs to make you aware that you are doing something wrong with your dog that is not helping with a behavior...this is all because he cares and is passionate about what he does. We recently got one of our pups back from a board and train and we can't express how happy we are with the progress and results that Tony achieved with Him (Dempsey). Our other pup is currently with him now and we are anxious to continue with the process in reinforcing everything Tony has taught our pup and us....so that when Mia is ready to come home we are ready to go! It was not as easy decision allowing our pups to go away on the board and train, but the trust we have with Tony allowed us to make the decision much easier. Also, we knew that it was the right thing to do not only for the pups to have a great life, but to make our lives with them that much better...admitting you need help is not a bad thing, it's the right thing to do if you take on the responsibility of owning a dog and need assistance. We would highly recommend anyone that is in need of dog training to contact Tony to see if his services match up with your needs. R&J Lancaster, PA
Dave Cochran of Show Me YOUR Dog Training helped our foster dog Hailey work on her poor socialization skills with other dogs. Hailey had a few sessions at Dave's site with his dogs, and has been a pleasure to work with since. The other fosters in the rescue have all been commenting on how much better her behaviour has been at adoption events, which is so important in finding a home for her. Dave makes sure to tailor his approach for each of his clients to maximize the value the client receives for time and resources spent. I will definitely be recommending Show Me YOUR Dog Training to anyone looking for help with their dog!
After one session there was great positive changes with Peanut! Would recommend Elaine to anyone looking for training with their dog!!
Steve did a great job in not only training my dog but training me to understand the reasoning behind everything. He made sure I knew why we did something and how to correct my dog's actions if necessary. Steve was very informative and helpful and made it known he's only a phone call away if I need assistance on something or have a quick question.
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!
It is very difficult leaving my dog and cat when going away, but knowing that Pam is taking care of them relieves me of any anxiety I might have. She is reliable, trustworthy and is a true lover of animals. I know they are in excellent hands and recommend highly Pam for any of your pet needs.
Clare Owings has been working with my 18 year old son and his 8 year old Labrador/boxer, with obedience training. On the first visit, I could tell immediately, she had the perfect personality and patience to help make this a pleasant experience. I found her ad in the local paper, and contacted her, without any prior references. Clare was available the next day, and arrived several minutes early for the first lesson (And each one since). She charges a reasonable fee , considering she provides more than just dog training. She has a genuine interest in my son and his future. They talk extensively about anything and everything...high school, college, life. Clare comes to the house for lessons and has also met at a nearby park.....wherever is convenient for my son. I highly recommend Clare Owings! We are fortunate (in many ways) to have found her!
Heather is very competent. My very large dog was an obnoxious jumper and had to be locked up every time anyone came into the house. She almost knocked some of my friends to the floor with her jumping!! Now I am able to control her and she no longer jumps up on people. Finally I have a dog with good manners! Heather stressed how important it was for me to be motivated to participate in the training of my dog, so I did my homework faithfully in between sessions, and was incredibly consistent, which really paid off. Heather is an excellent trainer and if you're really ready to work along with her you'll have a well mannered and happy dog.
Experienced dog trainer helping me with my puppy. Smooth experience! Never realized how smart a 12 week old puppy could be. So worth the obedience skills. My puppy is crate trained. Walks nicely on a leash and does basic obedience and beyond!! So worth it!
Sarah is awesome. She is very knowledgeable and passionate about dogs and their training. She is patient and explained what we needed to do and why. We can't thank her enough for turning our out of control Lab in to a fantastic family pet.
Matt trained me and my 6 month old German Shepard. He is a wonderful trainer. Very patient and knowledgable. He explained and demonstrated each step during our 8 sessions with him, very focused. He made me and my dog a great successful team. I am comfortable to take Lacey anywhere. Would recommend Matt for any dog training. You can not get a better trainer that Matt.
Awesome trainer there was another trainer there that dog came running over not sure what dog was going to do but she prevented a confrontation whereas other trainer did nothing and actually used ecollar in inappropriate way shocking dog when going back to their trainer
She and her husband are the best groomers. My Great Dane looks a smells great! So personable and a great price! You have to get your dogs groomed there.
We hired Jacques and his team of pet companions for a 10 day vacation we went on and had him stay at our place.We also use them to do some regular dog daily walks. They are easy to work with and so compassionate about caring for our pets. We will only use them for all our pet care needs going forward
Jass has been walking and dog-sitting our two pups for the past eight months and we couldn't be happier! Jass is great with our dogs and just generally an awesome person. We can't recommend her enough for all your pet needs!
My dog responded very well to techniques at Spring Canine Academy
I love all animals. I'm currently applying for a position in local animal hospitals! I've had been dog sitting and dog walking for the past two years for family, friends and friends' friends!
I walk dogs, and I take care of them during those walks. I have great love for dogs. I have walked many dogs in the past five years.
My experience as a technician is an asset to my training and behavior services. I use positive methods of training/behavior modification because I feel that is the only way to achieve lasting results. My goal is to make the lives of the client and the dog better, together.
We are reliable , trustworthy, reputable, animal loving company. Travel with ease knowing your fur babies are in kind loving professional hands. While your away your pets will play!!
I feed, train, bath, walk and pamper dogs all over. I would like to start a rescue one for dogs that are in need of a home.
