  • Positive Dog Training In Your Home

    (15 reviews)

    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.

  • Dog Training Services

    Is your dog misbehaving? Does it feel like your dog is leading your walks? Does he keep peeing on your floors at home? Does your dog seem violent and doesn't let people get close to you? Does your dog seem like it doesn't get along with other dogs at all? I'm sure the answer is simple. Give me some time with your dog, and I can tell you if your dog is really a trouble case or if you're doing something to make your dog this way. I'm a self-taught trainer who tries to understand dogs on a more personal level, so I can help them become a better pet for you, but I can also help you become a better owner for them. As Ceasar Millan said, "I rehabilitate dogs; I train humans."

  • Dog Training

    I am an Animal Behavior College certified dog trainer. I use force and compulsion free training, as it is scientifically proven to work better for both animals and kids. I have trained detection dogs (search and rescue to cancer), rehabbed countless rescues and also teach basic and advanced obedience, CGC test prep, behavior modification, as well as working with fear/aggression issues. I work with the owners to develop a program that is realistic for them so that we can improve their relationship with their dog. I follow up meetings with e-mails that recap it and provide videos and links to further their understanding of our discussion. I am quite aware that I am not the perfect dog trainer for everyone nor for every dog and, as I want us all to succeed, I am more than happy to suggest other trainers/options if needed. I am also able to work within a smaller budget than many private trainers; so please don't put off getting help, as dogs and problems do tend to grow! I am happy to provide both a resume and references as well as discuss any other concerns/needs you may have; so feel free to get in touch. I am also happy to provide a group class, should you have friends/space to do so, or we can brave the outdoors! Sliding scale/payment plans and options can be discussed in certain cases.

  • Dog Training

    I provide force-free, relationship-based training and behavior modification using the latest science-based methods to help you and your dog succeed. Individual plans are developed, keeping in mind your goals, needs and the reality of your schedule and wallet! Each visit is followed up with an e-mail, which will recap the meeting, outline the "homework" and include videos to illustrate, as needed. Clients can feel free to write, text or call with any questions. We work as a team to build on our understanding of our dogs and ourselves. After becoming a certified dog trainer through Animal Behavior College (2009), I have continued my studies by attending lectures, classes, voracious reading and research, volunteering with rescues and Penn Vet Working Dog Center and offering sliding scale training. I respect that animals learn at different rates and are individuals with their own needs, so I build trust with the dog and proceed at its pace. This way, we set them up to succeed in choosing the desired behavior. Children and animals learn better when encouraged and rewarded, which is a much nicer way to approach them than with force and intimidation. So we work to build a relationship with your dog based on patience, love, tolerance and trust. I think both in and out of the proverbial box and use a variety of tools to support your dog as s/he learns. Using play, BAT (functional rewards), LAT, operant conditioning, functional analysis, Amichien, massage, calming music and much more, your dog discovers appropriate behavior in a fun, rewarding and considerate environment.

  • Dog Sitting & Training

    I have a love for dogs that never goes away. Every puppy is welcome. Since childhood, I could teach dogs any trick and control behavior problems. My boyfriend calls me 'Ace Ventura'; my family calls me Dr. Doolittle. I am very caring, understanding, loving and very patient. I only accept dogs and puppies that don't attack other animals because I have a terrier, Mini, and 2 cats, Kitty and Boots. I also care for the safety of all my furry clients.

Brother of the Wolf LLC

(2 reviews)

My clients range from middle-aged housewives suffering from empty nest syndrome to poverty-stricken animal lovers. Most just need to understand how to gently coax their dogs to act in a socially acceptable manner.

Brother of the Wolf, LLC offers the kindest, gentlest methods on training dogs. Owner Dawn Watson has over 35 years of training experience, and she uses her ability to understand coyotes, wolves and foxes in working with domestic dogs.

My greatest challenge was in making a career of this knowledge and not just giving advice away without charging for it! I still give most of my classes away, charging little or no money for the service.

Dawn is part of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants.

If you love your dog and are craving to learn methods on handling them so they act in a socially acceptable manner, get in touch with Dawn Watson.

    Deb from Doggies in the Ruff had my exuberant adult Lab and Shorkie puppy eating out of her hand within minutes of meeting them. In addition to Deb's dog walking service, I've also taken advantage of her separate dog training service and have seen improvements in my Shorkie puppy already. Her rates are very reasonable and the peace of mind I have knowing I can rely on someone as experienced as her is priceless.

    Ruff Recruits

    We are extremely pleased that we selected Emma. She is a wonderful person and absolutely knows what to do. Our puppy was born to a street dog in Puerto Rico and when we adopted her, she did not have the best habits. Emma has taught us what to do, how to do it and when to do it. Our Sabrina is learning quickly and we employ what Emma has taught us and it never fails. She is flexible with scheduling and is always on time. You cannot do better than hiring Emma! Sabrina sits on command, heels when walking and sits at every street intersection. There is more to be done but thus far, it has been a rewarding and very useful training period.

    Kat's K9 Cadets Dog Training and Pet Services

    (6 reviews)

    Kat's K9 Cadets offers a variety of services, including professional one-on-one dog training lessons. We have been working with animals since 1991. When we train your dog, we pride ourselves in making training a fun experience. I offer 2 weeks of training. No two dogs are the same, so each training session is tailored to your individual pet's needs. I come to your house where the problems are and evaluate the situation. I like to get to know you and your dog on a personal level. I make a lifetime commitment to you and your canine's life. I know how important your dog is to you and your family and that is why having a dog in your life should provide you with great joy and companionship, not extra burden or an endless source of frustration as is so often the case. These are what I personally consider to be crucial, and always strive for when training dogs: - To raise a well-respected canine citizen. I want happy, involved, outgoing dogs who are valued and trusted members of the community. - To build a genuinely strong owner-dog relationship based on trust, cooperation and well-defined roles. - To have confidence in and control of my dogs in any situation, including around kids and other animals. - To work with my dog's natural drives and instincts, not against them. Absolutely no cruelty or harsh "old school" dog training techniques. I certainly don't believe you have to "break a dog's spirit" in the training. Pet sitting: We will also pet sit cats, ferrets, birds... any animal you have, we will take care of them. If you're like us, your pets have become family members. When you can't be home for them, whether because of work, vacation or other obligations, you want them taken care of with the same love and attention you give them. That's exactly what we give them because we love pets! We offer a multitude of services for a variety of pets. We can also handle various home services, which by making it appear that your house is occupied, can be a crime deterrent. Choose the schedule and services you want and we'll do the rest. Our pet services include: - Feeding/watering - Walks - Playtime - Love and affection - Caring for sick or elderly pets - Brushing - Shampooing - Nail clipping - Administration of medicine - Litter box cleaning - Transportation to vet or groomer Home services include: - Watering plants - Bringing in newspapers/mail - Turning on/alternating lights - Opening/closing blinds - Carrying trash in/out - Security checks of all doors and windows - Monitoring condition of the home - Ensuring fence perimeter is secure - Cleaning up pet waste in the yard as it occurs. We will clean yard of old accumulated pet waste. - 1 visit per day (30-minute visits) -- $20.00 - 2 visits per day (30-minute visits) -- $30.00 - 3 visits per day (30-minute visits) -- $40.00 - Extended visits (15 minutes) -- $10.00 No charge for administering medications. Dog walking: Walks, playtime, companionship or just a good time. I come to your home and give your dog(s) a break anytime you need it. Does this sound like you? - Working long hours - First-time dog owner - Business traveler - Health limitations Does this sound like your dog? - Bundle of energy - Needs socialization - Destructive behavior - Overweight and out of shape - Separation anxiety issues We provide dog walking service 7 days a week. - 15 to 20 minutes -- $20.00 - 30 to 40 minutes -- $25.00 - 40 to 60 minutes -- $30.00 Dog training: We must understand our dogs psycholgy to get to the root of their behavior. We offer two weeks of training for a lifetime of happiness. We teach your dog to: sit, stay, down, wait and leave it, walk on a loose leash and come. We work on puppy training, as well as do problem solving: barking, jumping, digging, chewing, house training, separation anxiety, aggression, Socialization and more. These classes are for young dogs or older dogs with little or no training. Each class will be tailored to you and your individual pet's needs. No previous training is necessary at all. We come to you so you don't have to stress your dog out. Dog training groundwork: In the world of dog training, simple things can make or break a dog. Dogs are just like humans, they feel pain and sadness, and they know when they are being punished and praised. In my opinion, to have a great relationship between the human and the dog there have to be some ground level rules. These rules make up the groundwork for all my own techniques of dog training. These are not listed in any order of importance, as they are all equally important to the bond of dog and the owner: Never hit or cause any pain to a dog. Always end a training session on a positive note. Be consistent with the dog as this makes the dog respect you as a leader. Contact us today to set up your appointment. First consultation is free!

    Off Leash K9 Training Philadelphia - Joe Goch

    (1 reviews)

    I've been working with Joe at Offleash for a couple of months now with my Jack Russell Terrier, Snickers. Snickers is a rescue and he came to us with "issues." Mainly, he attacks us when we try to leave. Well, after just one lesson with Joe I saw an improvement in his behavior. And subsequent lessons have further improved him. He's not perfect yet, but that's where consistency on my and my family's part will come in. The techniques work! Joe is patient, knowledgeable, considerate and accommodating. I had begun to lose hope that Snickers would ever be a "good dog." Now I know he will with the techniques learned from Joe! I highly recommend Offleash K9 Training!

We are teaching your dog to do so in a kind, consistent way. Your animal will associate good behavior with good "things" happening.

  • Dog Training

    Bark Busters

    I come to your home and do the training there; dogs learn better in their own environment. I use voice tones and body language to teach you to communicate with your dog in a way he already knows. Dogs don't have the ability to change the way they think, but people can change and learn how your dog thinks, and that leads to better understanding of each other!
