Dog training type
We rescued a 12 month old Aussie/Collie mix who is extremely smart but at the time, only knew how to sit when asked, was terrible on a leash, had zero ability to stay and jumped all over us every time we entered the home. After several sessions with Steve, we are happy to share that she now walks well on a leash, doesn't jump when we walk in the door (next step is training her for visitors), and stays when asked among many other new 'tricks'. Steve was very knowledeable and trained us how to train our dog. There's still plenty of room for additional training but Steve set us up in the right direction. I would highly recommend his services for dogs of any age!Jun 1, 2018Verified
My husband and I are so happy that we have discovered Steve Broadwell from Diamonds In The Woof to help us with our dog, Winston. Steve has been a life-saver and we are so pleased working with him. He is professional, highly knowledgeable, and has not only helped our dog, but has helped us, too. Our dog is a handful and we're still a work in progress, but Winston has really come a long way, all thanks to Steve. We not only feel as though we have hired the best dog-trainer in the area (we have!), but we have also made a friend who truly loves and cares about our dog.May 26, 2018Verified
Steve's been great with our big baby Zeta. Zeta is a LARGE dog who gets over excited and lunges at other dogs while on a leash. Steve has helped train zeta (and us) to greet guests more calmly, walk better on a leash and come when called. We continue to work with Zeta on these skills but we wouldn't be where we are today without Steve. He has been an amazing trainer! I highly recommend him!Nov 20, 2017Verified
Steve is very professional and was amazing with my hyper crazy rescue dog. I'm happy to say with Steve's expert help my dog is doing amazing! I would highly recommend Steve to anyone looking to train their dog. He is very compassionate and supportive!Apr 9, 2017Verified
We have a dog that was really poorly behaved and he has trained up beyond expectations. Training is very kind and hands on. Highly recommendedJun 6, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes. My training fee is very competitive and displayed on every quote. Other services quoted at free meet and greet or after phone consultation. I guarantee a professional and safe experience for you and your pet.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I offer a free Meet and Greet and outline a lesson plan based on the owner's description of any behavior (s) to be modified. After each private lesson owner and doggie will have homework. I email a review of the lesson to the owner.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a certified dog trainer and a graduate of the Animal Behavior College. I utilize Positive Reinforcement of an Alternate Behavior. I am also certified in pet First Aid and CPR.
