I've used two different trainers before for my dog and had little to no improvement. I decided to try Traveling Dog Trainer based on her reviews and her reply to my ad. Lauren did a great job on our first lesson. She showed me a few areas where I'm lacking and how to make my dog more confident in me as a leader. She didn't try to sell me on more lessons, which I liked that she wasn't pushy about it. She suggested that I keep practicing what we went over and of I feel the need for more training after, to give her a call. I highly recommend her.
I was in a long search for a dog trainer that had ample experience with German Shepherds, as everywhere I looked, it was more of a cookie cutter/group training class where I could not get the results or experience for training this breed that I was looking for. I finally came across Butch through a reference from the DFWGSR, and after having several phone conversations with him, I made a decision that I was going to take my 7 month old German Shepherd with him for a 2 week board and train. His knowledge on GSD's and other working breeds is impressive and the results are great. He does a great job in getting your dog to where you can take over and continue the work at home with much less effort. I can honestly say that this is the best dog trainer that I have come across. The results you get speak for his years of experience and love for dogs. I definitely recommend Butch and his team if you want impressive results, service and the type of experience you get after training dogs for all type of service work for over 30 years.
Maury did an excellent job with our dog. There are so many dog trainers out there we were not sure who to go with, but after only 1 week of training, we can see a huge difference. Maury loves the dogs he trains, and always wants a chance to see pictures of our dog. His 2 follow appointments are so helpful as well.
Finding a dog trainer is difficult. Finding Lynette who has actually trained CAIRN Terriers is a bonus! We start working together next week.
Debi is such a nice person let alone a great dog trainer! She is highly skilled and very knowledgeable! Thanks again!
Stephanie is a wonderful dog trainer! She helps me train my 4 month old puppy. She is very knowledgeable of dog behavior in general, and breed specific behavior, too. She teaches only positive reinforcement training techniques and is very sweet with my pup. Lola loves her, too!
Our dog training was very good and we learned a lot our self.
Over the last year, I have been fortunate to have Hilton Butler from K-9 Bootcamp train my puppy so he could become a therapy dog. From the first encounter with the Butler family I knew my dog would be in good hands. They understood the purpose of his training and knew what he would have to learn in order to become a therapy dog for kids with special needs. I was greatly relieved to know that my dog would be staying in their house with their children. This meant a lot to me since my dog spent 6 weeks being trained. To know that he would not be neglected in a kennel on a large property was a huge relief. Auggie was immediately welcomed by all family members and was treated like one of their own pets. He was in loving hands from the moment he walked in the door. I felt that Hilton was able to apply various protocols to meet my dogs needs due to his extensive background with K-9 training in the military, police, and service dog environments. Hilton demonstrates a firm hand while training, but uses positive reinforcement as well, which was needed for my dog. He ensures that you know the protocols to carry over in the home environment after training is complete. If there was any question regarding Auggies behaviors at home, Hilton was available by email, phone, and even conducted follow up sessions at my house. K-9 Boot Camp is a professional and loving dog training facility. They excel in providing individual treatment to meet your specific training goals. Customer service and compassion for their work shines through. Hilton, took time on a Sunday in November to drive all the way to Auggies therapy test for moral support. Auggie passed with flying colors and now comes to work everyday as a certified therapy dog. He is happy in his new role making sure all kids have a smile on their face while receiving therapy! We could not have done it with out Hilton.
Wanda is very kind and has helped us work with our crazy Bulldog Bella. Wanda takes a gentle approach and the dog loves her. She even met us at a park with her dog to give our dog socialization and play time. We have another dog but Bella enjoys attacking him. Most important is to practice the tools Wanda has taught us.
I would recommend Zoom Room to anyone. Heather is a great trainer and is so encouraging, especially if you have a "hard to handle" dog. The training is a lot of fun and good exercise, as well. Lisa W.
Tammy was wonderful! She took the time to train us all and gave such great advice and suggestions that we can put in to practice. She is very knowledgeable and patient and I would definitely recommend her for any dog training needs.
After shopping around looking at different dog trainers, I'm SO happy I went with Pamela! Over the course of the few weeks, she taught me so much about how my body language and tone of voice communicate different things to my dog and how to use that to teach him obedience and manners. Not only did my dog master the commands, I learned how to be in control and take leadership of walks and day to day life. Pamela offered great advice and insight when I needed it and I would highly recommend her to anyone! Thank you!
Tena is very professional and knowledgeable about training dogs. She has a very pleasing personality and I really like her. I would recommend her to help you with your dog training needs.
I appreciate Brian's approach to dog training. He establishes a relationship with the dog to create a desire within the dog to want to please him. I also believe that takes time. Every other trainer I talked to only wanted the dog for two weeks, which in my opinion is not enough time to really teach a dog obedience. I have been visiting Brian and Harry once a week and I'm very pleased with Harry's progress. I'm also learning how to reinforce the training once Harry comes back home. Brian has been a pleasure to work with and a very competent trainer.
The team at Canine Perceptions exhibit a great caring attitude toward the animals they train. They were more concerned about getting Daisy trained properly than they were with trying to get her through the program in as little time as possible or have her back on a set schedule. This is the third dog we have had trained by a professional trainer and of the 3 trainers we have used Canine Perceptions is by far at the top of the list.
Absolutely a delight to work with. This is my first time to have a dog and Arlene is helping me alleviate my fears. Knowledge is power. And all the informative tools, techniques and skills she is sharing with me helps me embrace and celebrate the joys of having Noelle( my sweet labradoodle)!!!
Mallory has taken care of my dog for over a year now whenever needed. She also spent some time training my dog. Mallory is very dependable and reliable, and great with my dog.
I had a crazy dog! Food aggression/ horrible on leash/ always jumped on people and greeted them with a pee puddle. I contacted Chris - and through our free consultation he assured me this is not something I have to just live with and that he could help us learn how to communicate with the dog so the dog knew who was I. Charge and we could get control. Sure enough he did. It took a few visits - more cause of us being slow learning not the dog or Chris. Chris worked magic and now we have a wonderful obedient fur baby. Thanks Chris !
We are blown away with the progress of our rescued Border Collie puppy. The trainers at TDS Canine Solutions took our fear agressive 6-month old to a well behaved puppy in just 5 weeks. We could not be more impressed with their style and results. Loving traing that not only taught our puppy how to behave, but professional expertise that taught us how to raise this sweet boy. We are forever grateful. By the way, we've had more than 10 dogs in the past, but simply couldn't figure out how to deal with with fear agression. This team knows their stuff!
