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)
Our 5 month old is training to be a service dog. Although training feels slow we do understand it all takes time. We are excited about our pup's progress and her future as a service dog. Denise knows a lot about her craft. She's taught us many things already and I know all our hard work/dedication will pay off in the end. We are both disabled and Denise has been great in accepting payments when many other trainers were not flexible. For that one aspect alone it was a plus for us in being able to afford training for our pup trained.
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!
Very knowledgeable, patient, Firm, Fair, and Fun! He has helped me with my 11yo Rott and with my 1 yo Rott- different stages of life but knew just how to modify to get results. Even gave his cell number for any issues that may arise in training a puppy!
Clare Owings has been working with my 18 year old son and his 8 year old Labrador/boxer, with obedience training. On the first visit, I could tell immediately, she had the perfect personality and patience to help make this a pleasant experience. I found her ad in the local paper, and contacted her, without any prior references. Clare was available the next day, and arrived several minutes early for the first lesson (And each one since). She charges a reasonable fee , considering she provides more than just dog training. She has a genuine interest in my son and his future. They talk extensively about anything and everything...high school, college, life. Clare comes to the house for lessons and has also met at a nearby park.....wherever is convenient for my son. I highly recommend Clare Owings! We are fortunate (in many ways) to have found her!
Maxine has truly been a life saver for me!!! We have been working with her over a month now and the results in our new puppy is amazing!! If you have problems with your pup she definitely has the answers!! You will not be disappointed with her training!! She has been very patient in teaching me the steps to success with my puppy . She has been available whenever I have an issue that needs working on and I am confident that I will have the best pup around with her continued support!!! My experience has been a great one with her!! Thanks Maxine!!
I had Rose take care of my dog Rocco for one week. Rose kept me informed on a daily basis and was an outstanding pet sitter for my dog. She took pictures and videos with her and Rocco playing. I felt very comfortable and I knew Rose could get the job done at 110%. I would definitely recommend Rose for any type of pet sitting.
Attended group training sessions for my 3 month old chocolate Lab 'George' and 2 of his brothers, 'Harley' and 'Gibbs'. Through all of the trainings sessions Paul was able to calmly and efficiently control the 'chaos' of 3 rambunctious puppies and actually teach them (and their humans) many useful things. Having Paul as a teacher/instructor for the dogs was like having a trusted family friend sharing the wisdom he acquired over years of working with many dogs and their owners. Paul is an excellent teacher and is intelligent, friendly, and very 'approachable'. Pawsitive Paul's Dog Training is absolutely outstanding!
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.
in one lesson they took a dog I was seriously questioning keeping and turned it into a dream dog in process and showed me how much wonderful potential he has.
My dog responded very well to techniques at Spring Canine Academy
