We acquired a rescue lab and had no idea what this boy knew... We hired Balanced Pooches dog training and could not be more impressed with the service John provided. Our boy Tucker is a totally different dog today then he was the day we got him.... We have all learned so much, and We are all works in progress. John was truly interested in working with all of us so we were all on the same page as far as training and building a great relationship to make a balanced home. I don't think words could explain how much this man cares to make every relationship between you and your pet a wonderful one. Hiring John was the best decision we made, and we highly recommend him.
I am a certified, professional dog trainer by the CCPDT. I believe that an integral part of dog training is patience. For this reason, I named my company and my high-strung, crazy, highly driven, never-napping, and always-moving border collie, Patience. Without her always testing my patience, for sure, I never would have become a dog trainer, not one who has a lot of experience with incorrigible behaviors. I specialize in the following: - In-home private obedience training for canines of all ages - Positive reinforcement dog training - Basic obedience: puppy, beginner, intermediate, and advanced - Behavior issues: fear, aggression, potty training, marking, pulling, resource guarding, jumping, barking, biting, chewing, nipping, separation anxiety, indoor and outdoor destruction, and lots more - Clicker-training method - Therapy dog training and testing I'm a Canine Good Citizen evaluator and has a certification in intermediate and advanced classes. I'm also a Therapy Dogs International evaluator. I'm a certified professional dog trainer (CCPDT) since 2008 and a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers since 2007. For 8 years, I was a K9 handler for the Rhode Island Urban Search and Rescue Team. I am well versed in search and rescue techniques (both urban and wilderness), which include direction and control, agility, air scenting, and obedience. This training has helped me to learn various canine jobs/sports and training methods. I love to bring my varied experiences as a K9 handler and trainer to help create fun and new ways to train and interact with your dog.
Kendra is the best there is as far as trainers go. I kid her all the time that she is the "female dog whisperer". She was a phenomenal trainer for my Cooper, bringing him from basic puppy training right through his Canine Good Citizen certification - no small feat for a rescue pup with LOTS of anxiety issues. If not for her, I am 100% certain that he never would have passed the test. I recommend Kendra and Alpha Dog all the time because I feel that confident with her skills. With her at the helm, I'd trust anyone under the Alpha Dog umbrella.
Kathy is an avid dog lover that has plenty of patience to work with many types of dogs. I have used her to help with dog training and to pet/house sit and she was great! Kathy is also resourceful in connecting and working with other trainers for help or suggestions in dealing with certain situations that may come crop up while training a dog. This provides a wealth of options and education for both the dog and their owners.
Katie is amazing. I am one of those dog owners who treats their dog like a member of the family. It used to make me sick to my stomach with worry if I had to leave town for a few nights and leave Gizmo with someone. I do not worry anymore. When Gizmo is with Katie I know he is being cared for in the same way. If I need Katie to take Gizmo for a walk, I don't worry. Katie is reliable and professional and she always has a cookie for Gizmo. I have been spoiled by the service provided by Katie and the Wagging Leash. I highly recommend.
