I would strongly recommend Blue Bridge Dog Training. My husband and I have an 8 year old miniature schnauzer, Emmy Lou, who had never received any formal training. Generally, she was a sweet dog but definitely had some obedience problems. For example, should would always jump up on people, dig at their feet, and get overly excited when guests came over. One time my friend and her baby came over and Emmy Lou barked so loudly repeatedly that I couldn't even hear my friend talk. Emmy Lou also jumped up when my friend picked up her baby. I was so mortified by my dog's behavior, I knew I had to get professional help. I found Jeff's information online and we met. Instantly I knew he would be a good match to help us with our dog. We met for 6 private lessons. He helped us train her to obey commands such as sit, down, stay, place, etc. In between sessions, my husband and I worked diligently to train her at home. We practiced every single day. It takes a lot of work and dedication to make a difference. Jeff also helped by getting Emmy to stop pulling on her leash during walks and instead walk beside us. Learning these basic commands helps us immensely in our every day lives. It means we can have company over and our dog will lie down on her bed instead of jumping up at guests, barking at babies, or begging for food. It means we can go for walks in public and she won't pull on the leash. It made owning a dog so much more pleasant and enjoyable overall. We had our own baby this past winter, and having the confidence that the dog would obey and not be too excited around the baby was a big relief. If we didn't do the training, I am certain we would've been so frustrated and upset by the dog's actions. But now we are happily coexisting and things are much more peaceful and playful. Having this training ensures a much healthier, happier existence for everyone in our family!
I never write reviews that Silvana was so amazing I felt like I needed to tell you. I have an aggressive and barking Cocker Spaniel. We’ve tried everything! We’ve taken him to obedience classes and had trainers come to our home but it was more like we were being taught tricks rather than getting to the bottom of the problem. Silvana produced changes immediately… I mean IMMEDIATELY! We can’t believe this is the same dog! If you are having behavioral issues with your dog, save yourself a lot of unnecessary time and money and give this lady a call! You won’t regret it! Thanks Silvana!!
Arin takes care of our golden retriever whenever we travel. She has experience as a dog trainer and has worked with a midtown vet. We are confident that our baby is well cared for and loved. We never worry when we are away. She professional, respectful and has a kind heart for all animals. would highly recommend her
Overall pretty great, it obviously comes down to whether you practice with you dog or not
Kimberly was my 3rd trainer for our dog and her ways were very helpful. We've had 4 other dogs and we were able to train them, but this dog is a bit problematic. He has many issues and Kimberly helped to make him a loved part of our family. He would not do well at a kennel and we have also used Kimberly's boarding services. Anyone hiring a dog trainer should talk with that trainer at length and make sure that you understand their style. Kimberly will not train your dog, but train you to train your dog- which is a much better way. She did bring her infant son to some of our lessons, but he was not a distraction and I really didn't care.
Completely re-trained my Lab to stop behavior like jumping on everyone and basically not listening. Nikki even taught him a few tricks. But now he can stay in one spot until a command to come.
We don't nickle and dime our clients, and we work with all breeds, all ages, and all sizes. Period. We may not be the cheapest trainers in town, but we are the most effective and back up all programs with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
We have taken both of our dogs to Daisy. She is wonderful and very knowledgeable. She will show you how to work with your dog and then work with you to master the skills. If you have questions, she is available to answer them for you. She not only cares for your dog but cares for both you and your dog.
We called Best in Breed Dog Training the week after we rescued Nellie when she was 13 weeks old. Found under a car, she was scared, hungry and really wanting to be loved. Calling Chris was the best decision we ever made after taking Nellie in to our home because he taught us the proper way to raise and train a dog. With Best in Breed we were taught simple and effective training tools that helped Nellie become part of our pack. I really think EVERY dog owner should train with Best in Breed!
Rachael is an excellent master trainer! She did a fantastic job with our dog Rooster! We have already scheduled our newest pup to get trained by her too! Great job!
Crystal is very professional and knowledgeable. My dog’s behavior has improved so much with just two training sessions so far.
I groom cats and dogs. I have 5 years of all-breed experience. I studied under a certified national master groomer and can hand strip. I do house-call grooming which means if you provide a place for me to set up, I will come to your house. Most of my clients have neighbors and friends come over to one house and I groom 6-8 dogs in a day.
