We were impressed with Tony from day one. I feel that his commitment to us began the day we originally spoke. Which was over two months ago when we contacted him to assist us with puppy training our Bernese Mountain Dog. We are overjoyed with not only the results we have with Tony's guidance but the relationship we have built with Brody. Having a happy, well trained puppy that is going to eventually weigh over 100 pounds was our goal and we have Achieved that goal. It is very comforting knowing that Tony is only a phone call away if we have any questions. Thank you Tony for doing what you love, it certainly shows through your work Brian and Tammy (and Brody)
An extremely competent and intelligent trainer. Ive wworke alongside many trainers in my 20 yrs of training and Denise is one ive had the pleasure of building a solid professional relationship with. Highly recommend!!! Jc Hansen Komplete K9
Steve first came to help up in December when we adopted our second rescue German Shepherd. We were totally overwhelmed by Denny, a young, energetic but completely unsocialized year-old puppy. Steve has taught us to teach our dog how to be a member of our family & our pack. Our house is calm now, our dogs happy and manageable. We are progressing in training to the point that I'm considering starting search & rescue training with Denny. In all candor, Steve has been a God-send to us. His ability to "read" a dog & help us understand what we are seeing has been invaluable. You can set a clock by his punctuality; each lesson lasts as long as you need it to for your questions to be answered. We are SO grateful to have found him - I can't think of anyone I'd recommend more highly.
So far, I am beyond impressed with Virginia’s dog training skills. If our dog not improve it will be entirely on us for not doing our homework. Even after the consultation we saw an improvement: it was as though she’d sat down with our dog and had a conversation about what we wanted from him and he said “ Oh, I wish I had known! You never told me before. “ Highly recommend Gray House Dog training!
We noticed a huge improvement in Apollo's behavior have only 1 session! Clare is wonderful, patient and very knowledgeable about training and Aussie behavior! Apollo loves when she comes to work with him! Cannot say enough good things. I highly recommend Clare Owings and K9 College.
We've had two sessions with Maxine (an initial 3 hour visit and an hour long follow up visit) and couldn't be happier. We took in a 3 year old lab/beagle mix named Hamish about two months ago and needed some help with basic obedience training and also some specific problems: nuisance barking, pulling on the leash, and some occasional guarding behavior. After just one session, we were able to communicate much more effectively with Hamish and his problem behaviors lessened. And the extra guidance we got at our follow up session today has already proven extremely useful. Hamish used to bark and bark at passersby and not heed any of our efforts to quiet him. Now he barks less frequently and when he does we're able to get his attention and he stops. His recall has also improved dramatically. Overall, he's also much calmer - it's obvious he feels more comfortable now that he understands our respective roles and what's expected of him. We feel fully supported by Maxine and highly recommend her services.
Sarah is a great trainer of dogs through training their humans. Do the homework assignments she gives you with your dog/s, it totally works.
Paul is a great Dog training, not only is he knowledgeable but also his enthusiasm about what he does. I am a first time puppy owner and we often think that its the dog that has the issue. But Paul teaches us that its all about being able to communicate with your dog because all they do is want to make you proud. I took Pauls training class and after 4 weeks I seem to have a new dog. No the dog was the same he just though me to be patient and help me to relay what I wanted my dog to do. The environment is very welcome not to mention how clean it is. I would advise anyone who thinks they have an issue with their dog to visit Pawsitive Paul's Dog Training. You and your dog will leave with a smile on your face.
Mr. Anthony arrived 15 mins early and immediately got to work with my dog. He was extremely professional and well knowledgeable about dogs. He was able to walk my family and I through the entire process of training ourselves and training our dog. I loved his energy and warm spirit. With all that he taught us on how to train our dog I know we’re looking towards a brighter future for our family. Our baby Dice is already getting the hang of the training. He’s so excited to learn. Thank you Anthony for all of your help and knowledge I will DEFINITELY be passing your Information off to other pet lovers.
After our first session with our Mastiff Mac...we received the tools we needed to make him a better pet. We saw and felt a noticeable improvement in his behavior. We have a lot more work to do but feel Gary will help us all the way!
Prompt Totally experienced.
Total professional. Results were seen first day on our 2 dogs. But, make sure you will do a bit of training yourself from what he shows you since the pups will forget in time.
My dog responded very well to techniques at Spring Canine Academy
