Ms. Flint was very patient working with my fear aggressive dog. She also had many helpful tips about stimulating his mind with nosework to help calm him.
I have a high energy young Golden Doodle. I had taken my puppy to a six week training program and did not get the results I wanted. I was frustrated as I did not know how to handle my dog. She is not aggressive just happy to see everyone. Paula teaches using positive reinforcement. This was important to me as some trainers do not. Paula personalized our training sessions around my dog's personality. She takes the time to find out what you, the owner, would like to get from this experience. These were not "one size fits all sessions." Paula is a life saver. I highly recommend her to anyone. In fact my daughter has now used Paula to train her Doodle too! Great results!
Scooby Doos House of Play came into our home to help with our aggressive dog. Dee Dee took control of our situation and eased my nervousness immediately. She taught us basic behaviors as well as helped us use an electronic collar to modify our German Sheppards behavior successfully. She was great with our dog...as well as with us!:)
I had a great experience working with Matt! not only is he personable and easy to work with, but he is an excellent dog trainer. We were able to transform a gigantic stray shepard puppy from a total maniac into a calm, obedient buddy in 2 sessions. This is a very practical and effective method of training. If you're on the fence just go for it. You AND you dog will be much happier.
Paw & Order Dog Training has been a huge help with my dog. When I came to them I had already been to two different trainers with no luck. My dog is dog & people reactive so he was quite a challenge. Jamie is always a call/text away. Even 2.5 years after starting training, we still attend monthly pack walks to brush up on our skills. They also board Brody for me when I travel as a typical kennel is not an option for him. We are able to do things together that I never thought would be possible for him! I cannot recommend them enough.
My dog trainer arrived at my home and took her time to become acquainted with my puppy. She was very thorough in telling me how our lessons would be and a future lesson was scheduled without a problem. She also listened to my concerns and gave valuable input.
Fetch Pet Sitting looked after my Bulldog and 2 Kitty Cats while we took a 14 day vacation over the Christmas and New Year Holiday Season. I typically take my dog to a kennel however he is getting up there in years I and would have worried while away. Fetch set up an initial meeting in my home where the 2 sitters came and met my animals and got all the information they needed to take good care of my animals. I provided them with a key each, and on the day of my departure received a text message letting me know they would be there later on that day and to have a great vacation. During my vacation, I received a text from home giving me a quick update on the status. Which allowed me to really relax. Upon my return I found the animals content and happy. The house was left very tidy, the mail had been taken care of, and most of all my pets were all in great shape. In fact - I think they were a little disappointed when we walked through the door rather than the pet sitters - they were completely spoiled while I was away. I fully intend on using Fetch Pet Sitting again and would highly recommend this service to anyone who has pets. They were professional and very thorough, and they obviously have a deep affection for animals as demonstrated by how my pets were upon arrival home. I had the service come to my house 3 times a day - since I was gone for so long. I think the service was good value for money - I would have paid as much to Kennel my Dogs and pay a neighbors kid to look after my cats. Peace of mind - Priceless.
My wife and I signed our Weimeraner up for the two week crate and train package and l can say with 100% certainty that it was the best money we've ever spent. Prior to the training my wife simply couldn't handle our dog. He is too big and too strong for her to control (not to mention that it's pretty embarrassing to be pulled around constantly by your dog). We met with the trainers (Buck and Sue) and knew immediately we had found the right place. We dropped our pup off, went on our honeymoon, and picked up a completely different dog. Like night and day. He went from pulling like a sled dog on leash to walking right next to us without one. He listens, obeys, and is overall a pleasure to be around. When we picked him up Buck and Sue took all the time we needed to show us how to properly use his commands and taught us the dos and donts that will insure proper behavior. Now I take him to the trail all the time with no leash in sight and let him do his own thing knowing that at any moment for any reason I can call him right back to my side with no problem whatsoever. We went from embarrassed to gushing with pride as we constantly are receiving praise for how well behaved and trained our dog is. Buck and Sue are the nicest and most genuine people you could ever hope to have molding your dog (they cried when we picked him up just like we did when we dropped him off). They sent us tons of pictures and videos of the training process while we were gone so we could see his progress and never feel like he was too far away. If you want to have the best behaved dog in your neighborhood or are having trouble with at home training then you don't have to look any further than Offleash K9. My friends are all looking to have their pups trained there and any dog we have in the future will absolutely be spending some time with the BEST TRAINERS IN PITTSBURGH. You're the Best Luke, Shelle, and Ruxin
Brooke watched our dog Cortez and we have nothing but the highest regard for her service and professional demeanor! She sent photo updates, the prices were very fair, and our pup was super happy when we picked him up. She was professional and super friendly throughout the whole process; we've been skeptical of allowing people to watch our baby but without a doubt we will be calling City Walks again in the future when we need our dog to be taken care of.
The trainers who are part Dogworks training, Inc are the real deal. My dog Sage and I took part in their Fiesty Fido class this past summer and I could not have been more pleased. They taught me so much about reading my dog, dog reactivity, and positive training methods. Sage is doing much better on walks and I have these experts to thank. If you have a leash reactive dog then I would highly recommend this class.
Jack and Swade can't wait for your next visit (although it may be Ruby that really makes their tails wag) Can't wait for my dogs to learn all the tricks that Ruby has mastered. See ya soon !
Stephinie has been walking my dog, Arthur, every weekday for the past year and also boards him at her home when I'm out of town. I have a very hyper dog and Stephinie goes above and beyond to make sure he gets plenty of exercise. She runs/ hikes/ and plays fetch with him- he always comes back exhausted. She's also a dog trainer so she works on commands with him as well. Stephanie always comes on time and is super reliable.
Kelly is fantastic! She is very professional, and knows her business very well. She was immediately able to identify my dog's issues, and provided a plan for us to work with that was easy to follow. We still have 1 more session with Kelly, but so far, we have seen great results. Using her plan, we are already seeing substantial improvement in our dog's problem behaviors. I would recommend Kelly to anyone having behavior issues (especially aggression) with their canine friend.
Melissa is an amazing trainer! She has been helping me train my dog, Boone, in nose work and without her help we wouldn't have made any progress as her hands on lessons made night and day difference. I can see a huge difference in my dogs confidence and in his ability to follow commands. Definitely would recommend V Force training for anyone looking to have fun and excel with creating a better bond with their dog!
This trainer has a very confident manner and my dog reacted well to him. I am learning a lot about dog behavior and how to read my dog's body language. He has given me great information and tips covering many different areas of my dog's reactions. I would recommend him highly to anyone serious about doing the work to strengthen their bond with their furry friend. Enjoyable too
Me and my finaces dog was not trained at all when we adopted her at 7 months. Michelle completely transformed our peanut. She not only helped peanut but helped us gain a wonderful bond with her. Thanks so much again!!
