Rona was truly a great trainer. I needed a trainer for my rescue dog who is shy and easily scared. I've had dogs before and were able to train them, but this one I had no idea what to do. I needed a way to let my dog know that she can trust me. Without me saying this, Rona taught me and my boyfriend a way to gain our puppy's trust and to build our relationship. It's been a couple of days now and the trick totally works! Even when we go out now our dog would look at us instead of panning left and right. What I truly appreciate from Rona's training is that she taught us just enough for us to get started on the dog training. I wasn't overwhelmed with information and the tricks she taught us were useful ones for this stage of the dog's training. I think dog trainers need to realize that as much as they are training the dogs, their main task is to train the humans on how to train their own dogs, and that's exactly what Rona did. Thank you Rona, Lucy is doing a lot better (still problems here and there but getting better)!
I am happy to write the first review for Ms. Reese. Our experience with her was superb. We have used many dog-sitters before and they have never been as happy and relaxed when we came home as this time. Our dogs, also, are a bit finicky with new people. They absolutely loved Carrie. We have already requested her service for another trip, and will continue to do so in the future.
Dog trainer seemed very professional got past what I thought he could not get past my dog is very large and has a very mean bark but that did not stop the dog trainer for going in and handling him very gentle of course but affirmative loved it what would make it better is more consecutive sessions I know the days closer together
I have an 11 month pup that I was quite frankly having a hard time getting under control. She's my first dog out of college and I quickly realized that I was in over my head. After searching the internet, I decided to give Kevin with Aloha Canine a call. From my initial phone call to my drop off- Kevin was ready to answer any question and walk me through the game plan with my pup. He outlined a training program that was easy to follow and individually tailored to my dog's needs. She spent 3 weeks with Aloha Canine and I can honestly say she is a changed dog. She is much calmer and responds quickly to my commands. I am absolutely thrilled. I know that training a dog is a daily habit, but I am sure that with the foundation that Aloha Canine has now provided we will be A-OK! I look forward to working with my pup and mastering all of her new commands together. And I'm sure that if I have any questions in the future- Kevin will be there to help. Thank you so much Aloha Canine!!
My boyfriend and I adopted a 6 week old pit bull named Huck in November 2013 the very first night we brought him home to feed him, I leaned down to pet him and he immediately starting growling. We tried to work with him ourselves but his food aggression started escalating as he got older and he also started being very aggressive towards us and family before he was 4 mo. Old. Our vet at the time told us that he needed to be neutered ASAP. So after we did that, we expected him to be more calm and less aggressive. Nothing really changed except he became more aggressive to the point where he would never let us give him a bath, clip his nails, being at the vet, pet him while he was eating or had any kind of bones to chew on, putting a collar on him, getting close to him and trying to touch his face. He would lash out at us if we did any of those things. It broke my heart more than anyone could understand because I was always so loving and affectionate towards my other dogs and the fact that I couldn't even love on my dog just ate me up. I became very scared of him and anytime he growled at me which was daily, I just left him alone. Me and my boyfriend have taken him to a few dog trainers in the past but we were turned away because they said he was too agressive and he should probably be put down. We even were recommended to go see a (Dog Phychiatrist) so he could be put on meds forever to help him be obedient. When I found out how much that was, it was insanely amount of money that we just couldn't afford. I was actually starting to consider to have him euthanized because so many people have told us that he is just to dangerous. I felt so alone and I just didn't want to be scared of my own dog anymore. My final attempt to get him help was actually on thumbtack. I listed my needs for a dog trainer and explained how agressive he was and expected to get no reply back from anyone because of his behavior. But then within 5 minutes of me posting my request, Christie said that she could help us. My boyfriend and I were kind of skeptical about it at first cause we didn't think she fully understood his condition and that maybe she just turn us away like all the others. But she explained to me that dealing with agressive breeds was actually her specialty which made me feel a lot better. On His very first day there of training he acted up pretty bad and Christie told that Huck needed to stay there for a while so she could work one on one with him without us being around. It was the hardest decision I ever had to make at that point but we decided to leave him there. It was very hard on us but we would have rather had to say goodbye for a little than have to say goodbye to him forever. Christie made us feel better by sending us emails and pictures almost daily about Huck's progress. We were finally able to bring him home 3 months later and we could not be more pleased with his behavior right now. I can finally say that we are able to put Huck's collar on him, clip his nails, and my most favorite part of all, he finally let's us love all over him and get close and touch his face. We know that he still has a long way to go, but he has made so much progress and we are so thankful from the bottom of our hearts for Christie. She is absolutely amazing with all of the dogs. You can really tell that she is genuine and really cares about what she does. We are learning so much from her and Ms.Jessica. That is why we drive 3 hours to see her for Class every Saturday morning from Houston.
My dog has made a lot of progress in just two visits so far. Corey is professional and very knowledgeable about dog training. I like that he comes to my house and works with both of us on setting boundaries around the house and with the cat. I highly recommend using this trainer.
We have been super pleased with Tiffany and her reliability. She is so easy to work with and helpful in a pinch with her "can-do" attitude. She is a genuine animal lover, and our dogs are always happy to see her. She's very responsive, and we've been so glad to have found her for home care instead of kennels!
I'm very please with Sit Means Sit Dog Training in Belton, TX. The communication was excellent and I noticed results within one week of training with my dog Leo. The training is easy to learn and the group classes help my dog learn at a faster pace with the distraction of other dogs. I found that in targeting my dog's intelligence we have a stronger connection and we can both help each other. Robin has been amazing also, as have the other trainers! Thank you Sit Means Sit!
I cannot say enough nice things about Doug. He takes amazing care of my dog, Penny and always sends updates on how she is doing. He is always accommodating to my hectic schedule and gives me the most important thing when I'm away...peace of mind. I know that not only is my home safe, but Penny is happy and well loved. Often when I return from trips, I find a thoughtful note and lovely plant or yummy soup waiting for me from Doug and Kitty. And the amazing part about all of this is the extremely reasonable pricing! If you choose to hire Doug, you will never look for another pet sitter again, I guarantee it,
They worked with us on what our specific needs were. They gave us feedback and tools to make our training with our dog more successful.
I hire Cindy to take care of my animals when I am out of town. Not one time have I ever worried about my horses or dogs. I know they are in the best hands ever.
Wonderful to work with listening to my requests. Also, the pup came back even better behaved!
Wonderful personalized care for our dog. We especially liked his overnight accommodations, including his own plush chair!
Michelle was fantastic! She came to my home to work with me and my puppy, Bennet. We worked on all kinds of things from obedience to loose leash walking to greeting other people and dogs. Bennet has been making such progress, I don't know what we would do without Michelle's help!
Becki took really good care of my kitties and dog. I liked that she has several years as a vet tech which put my mind at ease. I could tell from our initial meeting that she loves animals and animals love her!
My dog responded well to the trainer and her dog even though he is very shy.
Very Precise and clear instructions. Helpful. Will continue.
I work with the dog owner and his/her dog to learn basic commands like sit, stay, come, down, heal, off, place, etc.
