About

Butch really helped my pitbull, Olive overcome a lot of her car and social anxiety. We have a much older pit (7 years) and thought it might not work. But the tricks he and Stan gave us really have worked and she is much better than before. She used to just shake and drool every time we took a car ride, but now she lays down and barely pants/drools. They do some really good work and I recommend them to anyone who wants a well trained dog.

I initially chose Zoom Room to enroll my 8 week old puppy into puppy preschool for socialization and basic obedience. This was the best decision! Heather is great and my puppy just passed his AKC S.T.A.R. puppy test! He will now be moving on to puppy obedience and we will definitely keep coming back here! There is outstanding agility equipment here and my puppy loves learning the agility course mixed in with his obedience training! A great way to keep them engaged and learning and also super fun for the owners too! I highly recommend coming to Zoom Room for your dog/puppy training needs! We will keep coming!

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 dog’s 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 Auggie’s 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 Auggie’s 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.

Tammy is very good with animals. She gave us a lot of useful information to help us in working with our dogs. The sessions worked more with the owners than dogs. Just keep in mind it will be up to the owner to do the training not the All About Dogs staff. We were wanting someone to work with our dogs and train them and for us to reinforce what they were taught. In 2 sessions this was not an obtainable goal. We are happy with our start but have a long way to go.

Sarah has a wonderful, patient, demeanor which is great for dog training and people training. She has a talent in determining how to have owner and dog connect as a team. I am in the second course with Sarah and am seeing wonderful progress between my dog and I and I look forward to many more courses ahead. Whether you have a pet, a show dog, a performance dog, etc...these classes contribute to make your dog a better companion. Thanks Sarah!

About

Wendy Palmer is a very patient and consistent dog trainer. She uses her knowledge of dog ( especially JR ) behavior to tailor the training to each dog. She knows that dogs are not all the same. Different methods work for different dogs. She also trains the owner which is a good thing because most owners are being trained by their dog. Hence, lots of problems. I would trust Wendy's methods for any breed it dog.

About

As a former Veterinary Technician, I thought I knew and truly understood the basics of obedience training. Then I met Steve 7 years ago and realized I was clueless to true canine behavior. In the 7 years we have known each other, I have seen him train dogs even ACS's or HS's would assume were a lost cause. He has trained my dog, Seth, in both obedience and protection (Bullmastiff). Seth is one of the most obedient and wonderful dogs I have ever known. The one thing I did know about protection/"guard dog training" prior to meeting Steve was that no one seemed to know what they were doing, many times ruining a dog's core personality and creating unpredictable and dangerous animals. In addition to the many dogs I have seen him work with, he also trained my daughter's wolf hybrid, Kyla. Kyla has all the psychological attributes of a wolf but not all the physical characteristics of a pure wolf (even though she looks very similar to a Timber wolf). She has both Timber and Tundra wolf in her as well as some Akita. So basically the opposite of what you want: An animal I was convinced had crack stashed somewhere in the backyard...LOL After Steve worked with her (along with my daughter and I), Kyla is actually a well-behaved indoor dog (notice I didn't say "normal"). She is not destructive indoors, can be taken on walks, is completely housebroken and totally understands what is asked of her. Kyla has more energy than my daughter and I combined, but she is good at socialization, is protective yet not dangerous, fun to play with and we love her very much. Did I mention she just turned only two years old? Yep, toddler years for her. :) Thank you Steve, for helping my daughter and I in actually being able to share our home with a wolf...an animal my daughter has wanted for a long time and I have grown to love and cherish as well. For everyone who has taken the time to read the reviews on here, they are very accurate in regards to Mr. Johnson's abilities as a behaviorist, trainer and human coach. The relationship and understanding he can teach you and your canine companion to have together is truly priceless.

About

Changing dog behaviors, naturally... We offer intensive in-home one-on-one classes. Natural Canine Rehabilitation uses your dog's natural instincts to change bad behavior. Nature designed the best training method for dogs; we just have to use the same natural techniques in a practical way to fit our home environments. Dogs that aren't behaving the way the humans around them like are actually trying to tell the humans something. We help you understand your dog. We have to understand that body position does make a well-behaved dog. To have a dog that listens to you, a dog you can trust in any situation, your dog has to trust you. It has nothing to do with body positions, such as sit, stay or down; it is in the mind. Dogs are thinking, reasoning animals; they just don't speak English. We have taken that natural instinct, and we come to your home and teach you how to communicate with your dog in a calm leadership role. Dogs naturally respond to calm leadership, and when you learn how to become the calm pack leader, you will be amazed at how fast your dog will transform. A dog that has been pulling you on the leash can walk calmly in just minutes. He just need to understand what you have been wanting. Combined, our team of specialists has rehabilitated more than 20,000 dogs with behavioral issues ranging from pulling on a leash and marking territory in the home to full-blown severe aggression. I will work with any dog because they deserve the opportunity to be understood.

About

Dogs can't tell us in English what they are thinking, just as we can't speak dog to tell them what we want. Once we understand how dogs communicate with each other, essentially understanding dog language, we can quickly ascertain what your dog is feeling or thinking. Understanding a dog's behavior and language is an ever-growing process, but there are key elements that can give us a basic understanding and a starting place. Waggin' Tails Training works with all sizes and any breeds and train all range of behaviors. Don't wait till you have a problem; all dogs would benefit from training just as children benefit from guidance. We would love the opportunity to put our knowledge and love of dogs to work for you. Waggin' Tails offers a wide range of services, including: - In My Home Board & Train - Group classes - Private lessons - Home school at your home while you are away - Dog selection consults How far you take you dog's training is greatly up to you. Let us know what you want, and we will find the option that will fit your budget and lifestyle. Waggin' Tails Training - Making Tails Wag and Their People Smile

Bill was great! We met with Bill for a 6-week period, at our home and at a Park. We rescued a dog who was aggressive to other dogs, but otherwise "sweet as pie." Bill helped us get to know Zack and learn how to communicate with him to get the best response from him. We completed the basic class, but we all agreed that we would meet again for advanced training when the weather was cooler. We look forward to working with Bill again soon. We highly recommend Bill to anyone who is looking for an excellent dog trainer.

About

Dallas K-9 Academy is the best and the most effective dog training available. Your dog is trained in your home (or place of business) with you and your family. Our effective techniques, developed through more than 10 years of experience, will help you teach your dog to understand how he should behave in normal, day-to-day situations that occur in your particular environment. Your pet benefits most from training when he can stay at home, in his family environment, where he is loved and cared for best, and where he receives the most individual attention. Because the home is where you spend most of your time with your dog, behavior here is critical for how well your dog will complement your household overall. We train your dog to mind you and all of your family members. Whether it is inside of your home, front or backyard, or when you need to leave your pet unattended, you are assured that your dog will behave. One of the key aspects to our training success is your involvement and participation. Because we teach you how your dog is being trained, you will understand why your dog responds best to certain commands and expectations. We listen and understand your needs and desires, so we can not only help you teach your dog to mind, but you will learn to better communicate with your dog in all circumstances. As a result, you will know how to get your dog to do the things you want him to do willingly and joyfully and with a minimal amount of effort on your part. We are committed to you having a satisfying and rewarding experience with your dog that will last his entire lifetime. Another option we offer is off-site training. Although we prefer to train your dog in your home or place of business with your participation, we understand that this is not always an option for certain owners. In such circumstances, we will keep your dog and train him, and you can be assured that your pet is receiving the best of care. We nurture your dog in our home and treat him as if he is our family pet. We do our best to train him in much the same way we would at your home. Your dog is never stuck off in some remote kennel (as with some training services) because this would not enable your dog to learn how to appropriately interact in a family setting. To be successful, your dog must be trained in an environment similar to yours. At the completion of training, we deliver your dog to your home and work diligently with all the family members to assure you that he will continue his newly learned behaviors.

About

I've been training dogs for about 9 years due to becoming involved with rescue work, fostering and adopting. With the greatest joy Im happy to say one of my specialties is match making people dogs and other pets together ! Im very proud to say any dog I've ever adopted out to a family has never been returned to rescue ! The reason for this is simply I care. I take the time and do extensive research on breed, the best breeders for pure breed lovers, energy level, training ,the needs of both the family and their very own dream dog to make love last forever ! I have also helped dogs stay in their homes with the positive training I do with many praise and thanks from family and Im sure the dog lol ! It's been one of my greatest pleasures to see you and your dog to become happy, confident and secure in your relationship! My philosophy is owning a dog should be one of the greatest experiences we will ever have, unfortunately too often that beautiful dream becomes a nightmare. Be sure if you don't hire someone like me to find that great dog for you that you do your research, and that your main priority is for your dog to become an ambassador for his breed ! I started pet sitting in my home about 2 years ago, and love it ! We treat every dog like a member of our own family. We take long walks, have dinner, snuggle and watch TV together. It is a great joy knowing your dog is happy, safe, and tired when he goes back home. We take pictures of your dog and send them to you while he/she stays with us of all the activities he is enjoying ! At Dream Dogs we know that seeing is believing ! Don't worry if he misses us, would you rather him run for his life to leave us? We enjoy all the dogs who come and stay. We will grant almost all special request with extra fees.
