Despite the last review, which I view as a case of poor owners. The fact rings true that there is no bad dog just bad owners. Even if you watch "Caesar Milan" he says the same thing repeatedly and his techniques are also the same if not similar to Elaine's. Regardless, we adopted a Pitt Bull from the local SPCA on January 30,2016 she was very good with my husband and I but aggressive with ANYONE else and with other dogs as well. We knew we had a problem when we could not have people come inside of the house and even when people walked into the vets office she would get aggressive. I researched and talked to many dog trainers and to my shock a few of them said my Dallas was pretty much a lost cause and just an affressive dog. After Elaine's first visit with us we learned the tools we needed to have a happy balanced dog which to make a dog balanced and a happy dog does not require what we need and want to be happy as most think, as I thought before. Elaine knew exactly what Dallas needed and how to work with us to be able to help her. After her first visit was over we had a new dog instantly! The main concerns were covered in only 1.5hrs, this amazed us! We did use the gentle leader and we still use it every time we go on walks, she doesn't like it but she responds much better with it on and we both get an enjoyable walk. Now, 3 lessons in we are confident that we can take her places and know how to handle situations if they occur because with our dog it's all time and repetition at this point. We had a great experience with Elaine and would recommend her to anyone. She knows what she's doing and just go in knowing it's the owners who give their dogs these behaviors not the dogs. Trust me I found out I was making her worse by trying to baby her, I changed my behavior and energy and she changed pretty instantly. Personally I trust the care of my dog in Elaine's hands and you should too, she really does know her stuff and keep in mind being a dog owner does not make us experts so let's leave it to the actual expert!
If you are looking for an exceptional dog trainer than Sal is your guy! He was so kind, very patient and helped guide our dog as well as my family with real positive steps toward learning basic commands and understanding our dogs needs as well Sal loves dogs and his knowledge of all dogs was Phenomenal! I am looking forward to hiring him again! You will not be disappointed with this gentle giant! Sal 's fee is extremely affordable and is the best money I have ever spent. In addition our puppy Rocco loved him .
Fantastic well worth the money she was gentle and loving to my dog. She took her time and did a wonderful job
Deb just left the house after a wonderful 2 hour session. I have always had dogs but never ever thought about using a dog trainer. Well I must say that Deb brought so much to the training of our Lab that it was invaluable. She is so knowledgeable, professional and very personable making the session a fun' experience for all of us. We highly, highly recommend Deb to anyone looking for a dog trainer!
We had a fantastic experience with Niko. Our dog was a little shy on the first meeting, but loved him every other time he came over. Niko trained us well to train our dog, which is the best way, as you need to keep reinforcing the training. I highly recommend him for anyone willing to put a little work into training their dog.
Looking for a dog trainer is so hard cause everyone has different ways of training dogs and you never know which is the right way. We have worked with other trainer in the past an by far this is the best trainer. She really understood what our issues were with our dog, spent time getting to know our dog and evaluating him without trying to correct him right away. Very patient and is always available to follow up with via phone, text or email. I would definitely recommend Amazing Paws to all dog owners!!!
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.
My two dogs attended Adult Manners I class with Marion O'Neil. Marion did give us many tips on how to help our dogs follow direction. They have both made strides in their behavior. We are pleased that we attended Molasses Creek Dog Training.
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.
Heather accomplished more in 3 sessions than previous dog trainers who spent much, much more time, but were less knowledgeable about how to effectively handle my dog's behavioral problems. She went directly to the problem behavior and after each session had produced lasting results. Everyone says my dog is like a whole different dog while maintaining his great enthusiasm for being alive. Positive training and rewards all the way. I would highly recommend her services. She doesn't just talk, she delivers.
Steve is a very knowledgeable dog trainer. His method of dog training is so easy to learn and has proven excellent results raising my puppy. Highly recommend him for any dog behavior problems!
Pilar has done a fantastic job training our pup on a leash! I have counted on her to take care of my baby daily for the past 8 years. She did great working with her, as huskies are an intelligent yet stubborn and mischievous breed.
Christine and Lynn were great. We had our dog walked and also boarded with them and they both gave him much attention and care.
Athena is a wonderful caring trainer who has a passion for rescuing dogs and helping them find their forever homes. She has worked with all range of dog types, breeds including aggressive dogs. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants a caring dog training professional!
First Class Wags is a first class company! The owner, Robin, is on the ball with replying to requests for service. She and her staff are very accommodating, and very professional. My dogs look forward to their dogwalker spending time with them, and they are a lot happier. Neighbors have remarked how happy my dogs are when they are out with their dogwalker. And, if the dog is happy, the mom is happy!
We hired Mark to train our female Rescue 5 year old Rotty/lab mix. This rescue was very snappy, nipped a neighbor & didn’t walk, but ran on leach. We’re still at the beginning of training but so far Mark has trained us to walk slowly, directing our dog and we already can touch & love up our girl. I made a connection with my dog that I didn’t have before Mark. She trusts me more & is looking at me for guidance. We were ready to give her back to the pound because no non-kills would take her with her anxiety. Thank you Mark for giving our rescue a stable home! Xoxoxo!!!!!! 💜🤗💜🤗🤗🤗
It is with great pleasure that we write a note recommending New Beginnings Dog Training ! We are absolutely delighted with the experience Raffie, our 7 month old Standard Poodle had with Kristy at her home...she did a wonderful job with him. Don't hesitate to call her if you want your dog trained properly ..... showing caring and kindness while getting wonderful results....she's terrific and we highly endorse her work. Raffie had all kinds of experiences while he was living with her to board and train over a two week period; she's the best ! Tom and Sandi....Reading, Pa.
I didn't actually work with Rebecca but she was will to come to my house to see how my dog was acting. I really appreciate that. I went with someone who was closer. Otherwise I would have used her.
My dog came home looking like a show dog. Arlene did a wonderful job and it will make brushing him a joy. I'm so glad I found her.
Beth from Canine Einstein is absolutely amazing! She came to my house last night and worked with my new adopted rescue beagle, Charlotte. She is 2 years old and hasn't had any type of training before. She's not housebroken, she begs for food during all mealtimes, she jumps on tables (something I've never seen any dog do before!) and is pretty much into everything. We needed some serious help!! Beth is very knowledgeable, extremely patient and very soft spoken too. By the end of the night she had Charlotte sitting and staying (which is something she's Never done). Her normal things were to jump on you, stand on all 4 legs, stand on 2 legs while leaning against you, or to lay down and sleep but never sit!! Now Charlotte is becoming a completely different dog thanks to Beth. It's like night and day and I'm so relieved. Today Charlotte and I worked on all of the things that we learned last night and she's been doing fantastic. Beth is a truly gifted woman!
We have 2 dogs, one of whom is very difficult to work with. I didn’t think the dog would let someone unknown ever come into the house. Jacques has been great. He responded immediately and came to meet the dogs the next day. It was clear he had the experience he had the experience we needed. He is just wonderful. Just one week out and all is going so well. 5 stars to Jacques.
