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.
Highly recommend,very fflexible.dog trainers with lots of experience
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.
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!
A great dog trainer. We saw progress instantly. Very easy going and friendly. On time and very polite. Gave us very good tips to work on and I liked how he has a balanced approach towards dog training.
Weve always considered our dogs as part of our family and we didnt want that to change when we had kids. But when we adopted two rescue puppies, that dream quickly faded. Even for dog people, puppies are not easy to train when you are busy raising three young children. Finding Hilton changed everything. It was hard to make the decision to let our beloved puppies stay with Hilton for one month, but when they came back they were more a part of the family than they had ever been before. Now we take them with us to the park, to run errands, to school pick up, even just while were playing in the front yard or bringing in the groceries. They no longer need to be in kennels when we are away. They are friendly and well behaved around company, including our kids friends of varying ages. Investing in quality training with Hilton was the best gift we could have given our family.
Brian was very good with our dog. He's much better walking on a leash and listens to us better than when he left. The only downside to training our dog this way is that it's a remote location so we have far more distractions in our neighborhood than out on the ranch. But Brian did some socialization training and left us with good tips and instructions for continuing to help our dog learn that he needs to be calm when approaches other dogs. Our dog was sad to see Brian leave.
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.
Excellent dog training and pet setting for aggressive dog. Had him interacting with other dogs in 1 session!!!
Yolanda has been our pet sitter for over 3 years. She has taken care of our old, sick dog as well as our puppies and they all get very special attention. She takes them on long walks, and makes sure each one is safe and happy before she leaves. She hand fed our sick dog and took him to the vet on several occasions when we couldn't. She always leaves great notes about her visits and texts us updates when we're out of town. She has an unbelievable connection with all animals (she cares for our birds, too). I would totally trust her and recommend her for any personal errands or projects. We have used pet sitters for over 20 years and she is by far the best!
Lauren is a great example of getting what you pay for. If you want someone with real technical knowledge and a real genuine concern for the animal, then hire Lauren. If you want some half baked person that decided to be a dog trainer because they have a dog or because "dogs have always liked them" and just need someone to walk your dog so you can sit on the couch and eat chips then move on. If you want progress and harmony with your pet and really want to understand them then hire Lauren. I have had a black mouth cur/ boxer mix that is my child. He is a rescue and I've had him for at least 10 years now and I have had serious challenges to deal with him and struggled because I wasn't armed with the knowledge or understanding of this dog and she has completely changed his temperament. It's like he's a new animal. She's a dog whisperer. Complete trust is all I can say. She is the best around. Literally. I challenge you to find anyone in the metroplex that has the experience she has. She is worth every penny!!!
After interviewing several trainers, Koda and I attended a private lesson with Steve. Besides being knowledgeable about dogs and their behaviors, Steve had Koda acting better than he ever had with me just after 10 minutes. By the end of the lesson it was obvious that the issue was mostly me. Me pulling on the leash. Me not giving Koda the right direction. Me letting Koda get away with stuff. Not once did Steve make me feel stupid. He answered all of my questions and I know he had to be tired of telling me the same things over and over. After a couple of lessons and attending the weekly classes, our class attended a city festival and Koda was amazing! Before Steve's help I would have had my hands full just on the walking part with me being pulled behind him like his personal kite. He also would have jumped on everyone when saying hello. Koda walked on a leash beside me past a live band, with rides making noise and kids screaming and he did not freak out or misbehave. We actually made the front page of the local newspaper and got tons of complements on how well behaved Koda was. While we still have a long way to go in our journey on making Koda the best dog he can be, Steve will be the only trainer we will use.
Beth has trained 2 dogs for me and both times I was completely satisfied with the results. After she trained my dogs she trained me and the rest is history. I would highly recommend Beth as a great dog trainer. Bobby Gerber
We are absolutely thrilled with the results we've experienced with our puppy after Traci's 2 week "Puppy Headstart" program. It's incredible the amount out puppy was able to learn, retain and apply in her daily life. She is such a joy and a wonderful member of the family!
Sarah Roberts, SATS certified in Perception Modification and Bridge and Target Training, with an MS in education and years of experience as a special ed teacher, is one of the most talented, effective teachers/trainers I know. She is also a pleasure to deal with. She is able to train demanding and difficult animals, for a wide range of applications, and she is an outstanding teacher of owners as well. I have mentored Sarah in her SATS certifications and I am proud to have her as a trainer.
Kandace was our dog trainer for our Great Dane puppy about 3 months ago. She did a fantastic job with training Bella. Bella now listens perfectly and walks with me with out a leash. I would highly recommend her
It’s been almost a month since I adopted Kip from a local rescue. I remember seeing Kip for the first time at the adoption event and I immediately knew he was my dog. Kip had been so neglected for a long time that he did not know how to interact with other dogs let alone know how to walk on a leash properly. He kept lunging towards every one and every dog on our walks. After a short while, he started to develop an aggression towards other dogs in the park. I didn’t know how to help him, so I reached out to the rescue and they recommended that I call Darlene at Artemis Dog Training. Kip was enrolled into the program the same day I called. While Kip was going through rehabilitation, I was learning and studying the videos Darlene sent me to watch, so I can be a better leader for him. We still train and practice commands every day. Darlene also takes the time to check-in on us to make sure we’re still doing well. I can’t imagine what Kip would have been like without Artemis Dog Training. Darlene helped transform Kip into a better dog and I can’t thank her enough. If you have a dog with behavioral issues, call Darlene at Artemis Dog Training. She will be the last trainer you’ll ever need.
My experience with Cosmic Canine has been wonderful. Maya and Megan are very knowledgable dog trainers from manners to competition. I have brought my Giant Schnauzers to Maya for advice in our obedience training. My dogs and I began going so well with Maya's support, expertise and insight. I am looking forward to Cosmic Canines classes and for needed coaching for my dog and I.

Dogs don't come with instructions! It is up to us as responsible pet parents to let them know what is acceptable behavior and what isn't. I continue to keep up with the latest and greatest training techniques and have learned how to specialize. I have my own Therapy Group and we visit the different facilities once a month which is most rewarding and a huge community service! Upon request, I also do diabetic alert dog training.
