John seems to know what he is doing about training a puppy.
We took both our dogs to training. They both are doing much better and are much easier to manage. It has really made our house calmer and the dogs continue to progress and behave much better. We would highly recommend the two week program.
I've been using Danielle's dog walking service since I moved here last July. Knowing Danielle (or her Mom) are visiting with my dog, Kloe, while I'm at work gives me great peace of mind. When I get into a pinch and can't get home from work right away, Danielle is just a "text" message away, and she's always been able to go back to the house to bring Kloe out for another break. Danielle is a natural animal lover - it's clearly her passion, which makes her the kind of person that I want watching my little Kloe. I would highly recommend Danielle and Music City Pet Sitting.
We would be more than happy to help train and work with bulldogs that can be stubborn at times, when at a young age. Having worked with this majestic and awesome breed for twelve years, we can help assist frustrated owners. Whether it be potty training, or walking on a harness, we can make a difference in your new addition of a bulldog, making true family harmony happen.
Nikki's understanding of animal behavior is unimaginable, and her ability to teach people how to have a more enjoyable relationship with their dog is far beyond comprehension. My wife and I had Nikki come out to our home and teach us how to work with our German Shepherd puppy, Veda. Nikki's lessons are straight to the point, and the results are evident immediately. She is a huge proponent of not "over commanding" your dog. To hear it from Nikki, she'd tell you that you shouldn't have to constantly tell your dog what to do (or what NOT to do)...your dog should know what is expected and just do it without a command. To alot of people that sounds daunting, if not laughable, as a training method. You can laugh or shrug off that line of thinking if you want, but we're here to tell you that it works! Dog dragging you down the street on your "walk"? Nikki will fix it! Dog jumping at the door to greet visitors? Nikki will fix it! Ever feel like you're not the one in charge? Nikki will fix it! Quit reading the Leerburg site wondering about prong collars. Quit wasting your hard earned money at Petsmart and Petco on their clicker classes where you make the funny noises to distract the dog from what it's focusing on. Call Nikki. Tell her what's going on with your pet. Setup an appointment, and start enjoying your relationship with your pet (and other humans in the house) again. Her abilities with animals and their owners will change the dynamic in your house in a very short period of time. It does cost a little bit more than those other training classes...but the results are far better in our opinion.
Lee Ann, is an incredible person. I have used her while on vacation and for general daily walking of my dog. She's honest, trustworthy, and extremely dependable. She has a real connection with my dog, you can see it when they greet each other. I have owned dogs for 20 years and I've never found somebody more reliable,fair and committed then Lee Ann and I so appreciate her professionalism.
I have the patience that other dog trainers simply do not have. You tell me what you'd like done, I'll find out what your pup's incentive is, and your best friend will be just that.
I work at a job that has crazy hours and thanks to Tiffany Exum I am able to get things done and feel like I have been home the whole time. She pretty much takes care of my household. Cleans laundry mail kids the whole thing. If I have a load of laundry ready to go in, it's a great feeling when it's already folded when you get home. One time I was gone overnight and the dog got loose and was hit by a car. My kids called Tiffany Exum to try to help him and she did, came over with her doggy first aid kit and he his fine to this day thanks to Tiffany Exum. Not only is the dog ok but we are all better off as we are able to spend more family quality time. She foresees things and is quick to jump at the task at hand
I am a dog trainer based in Fairview, TN. My passion for all animals has driven me to become a dog trainer. I am dedicated to turning any dog into our best friend.
Angie has nearly nipped some serious behavior in the bud. I doubt we would have had that success in a group class. Excellent teacher for my wife and me. Highly recommend her!
From the first home visit "meet and greet" to establish a baseline, through the personalized (hour plus every time) training sessions, and continuous follow up advice, we received high-quality, professional, and - most important - effective means to get ourselves and our dog better aligned. Make no mistake: "Thank Dog! Training" is not a quick-fix, single session solution. It absolutely requires considerable commitment and consistency of everyone in the immediate home of the dog. And that is not easy. But we and our dog are far healthier frames of mind and expectations now.
I have been taking care of pets for many years and take great pride in my job. I am also Pet First Aid Certified (updated 2014).
I love dogs and have owned several dog most of my life. I am responsible and reliable. Your pets will be in good hands while you are away. Enjoy your trip with piece of mind.
Tatiana is wonderful! She truly has a passion for animals and has taken care of and loved on our fur babies many times. She's great with our two giant dogs (70 and 60 lbs) and our cat. My husband and I love that she has so much experience at the vet and we can always count on her professional knowledge of what's going on if we are noticing any certain symptoms our animals are experiencing. I would highly recommend her. She's responsible, understands animal behavior, and most importantly our animals love her!
My passion as a dog trainer is teaching people to properly train their dogs to be a welcome part of the family. Behavioral problems are one of the main reasons dogs are surrendered to shelters. Proper training can save these types of dogs. Everyone likes a well-trained dog. It's the only way to have a dog and truly enjoy them. I became a dog enthusiast because I was given an adult dog that had many behavioral problems. I worked with several trainers to make her a wonderful companion that I could truly enjoy. My show experience includes obedience and agility. My golden retriever Kula has received the following titles from AKC and United Kennel Club (UKC): Companion Dog (CD), Rally Excellent (RE), United Companion Dog(UCD) and Canine Good Citizen (CGC).
