Our dogs are definitely a member of our family. Dee came in and treated them exactly as we needed. While we were on vacation, she cared for them, stayed and played with them - even setting up a kiddie pool out back for them on the hot days. She kept us informed, as we asked, as to how they were doing while we were away. She sent pictures, which kept us from worrying too much about them. And the dogs loved her!! We will definitely hire Denise the next time we go away.

About

As a behaviorist, I work with numerous dogs with behavioral issues ranging from urinating in the house all the way up to full-blown aggression. I have testified in many court cases as an expert witness and have travelled the country rehabilitating dogs and teaching their owners how to change what they were doing in order to change the dogs' behavior. I teach others my techniques so that they can help other people to save more dogs. I train service dog sfor special needs children and for veterans FREE of charge. I was even a guest lecturer in an animal behavior class at a Japanese university in Tokyo! It is remarkably simple to have the dog you dreamed of. Unfortunately, most people give up and either change their lives around their dogs' behavior or even give the dog away! How does it fix the dog to give it away or dump it into a shelter? It doesn't, but that's why there are more than 4 MILLION dogs euthanized each year in shelters around the country...because all the "trainers" couldn't help those dogs so people gave up on the dogs, and on themselves, often feeling guilty for years...all because they didn't know how to help their dogs. I will teach you how to get your life back and have your dog fit into YOUR life instead of your changing YOUR life and trying to live YOUR life around your dog's behavior. I can help you! I must admit that the best part of my job is about 15 minutes after arriving into a chaotic house, jumping and barking dogs, out of control household, and hopelessness. At that time, everyone says, "I can't believe it...my dog NEVER lies down this quickly" or "did you give my dog a pill?" or the best one, "Can you give me a lifesize cardboard cutout of you so my dog thinks you are still here?" If someone takes your dog and trains it but returns the dog to you without changing YOU and what the humans are doing, then the dog will revert back to his old behaviors, right? Of course! That's why I teach the HUMANS what to do, since the dog already gets it! That's what I love most...that and all the friends I have garnered through the years, most of whom began as clients!

About

In order to change a dog's behavior, one must get to the route of why they are doing what they do. This is where my training methods differ from "typical" training being offered by others. I teach my clients to understand their dog's body language and energy. I also teach how dogs interpret our body language and energy. Once everybody's on the same page (canine and humans,) the behavioral issues literally disappear. I get to hang out with dogs all day...what's not to like?? I am also passionate about prevention - that is, preventing a dog from ending up at a shelter in the first place. Watching a dog's behavior change before my eyes is so very rewarding. I know that when the training is done, the dog and their humans will have a new understanding and respect for each other. No dog I have worked with has ever ended up in a shelter!

About

I will help you start out right with a new puppy or rescue dog. You will learn how to set boundaries and teach manners to your dog. Your dog can learn basic obedience skills, as well as how to better focus and pay attention to you. I can also help with behavior problems, including aggression, destructive behavior, constant barking, or just generally not listening to you. If you have multiple dogs that don't always get along, I can help with that, or if you have a well-behaved dog that is just bored and you want it to learn nifty tricks, I can set you up to wow your family and friends. I only use positive training methods, and I guide you at developing a more harmonious relationship with your dog.

About

Welcome to Professional Dog Training Services, where training is tailored to meet each dog's needs individually. Bryan Hendricks is a certified master trainer/behaviorist, world level IPO competitor and Schutzhund USA certified national level helper capable of handling the most common acts of disobedience to the most extreme behavioral issues. At Professional Dog Training Services, training is molded around your dog's temperament as an individual, as there is no systematic way in which all dogs can be trained. Systematic training is one of the reasons you'll hear people say "My dog failed obedience class", this is because that trainer's system of training didn't work for their dog and lacked the knowledge to use alternative means. A dog that fails obedience is only a reflection of a failed trainer, and that simply isn't possible at Professional Dog Training Services. There is a 100% success rate. In-home training is available for Montgomery, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Philadelphia counties. We are now also serving New Jersey, including Camden, Gloucester, Burlington, Salem, and Atlantic counties. All training is backed by a written lifetime guarantee and a full list of referrals is available upon request. (see video testimonials) Please feel free to call after browsing through my website. I'd be happy to set up an evaluation or share more information about my services
