I am generally not the kind of guy who writes reviews, but Mike has a rare gift for training dog. Jethro, my 1 year old German Shepherd needed to learn the basic commands. We have had Jethro back from training for several months and he stays and heels as he is supposed to. Call Mike if you want your dog trained well.
She takes her time training my dog! I enjoy it!
Mike and family at barks 5th Avenue have changed our life with our german shepard. She was wild and we thought we were going to have to give her away. There training gave our dog fina....another chance to be truly a house dog with manners. I can't thank them enough they are truly professional dog trainer. I would recommend them to everyone....my friend also had his dog trained there with the same results. Once again if you need a referral to call me that is not a problem
Lee is very energetic and patient both with the Dogs and with us people!! She is very thorough and observes our dogs behaviours while training and tailors the training to our specific needs.
I work with a rescue dog that has had a bite case filed against him and was given Amy's name as one that can work with this type of behavior. She came out yesterday to see him and the other dogs in my home - training all of them together. She quickly identified the one dog as Fearful/Aggressive and Protective/Aggressive and then showed me how the behavior manifests, how to bring it out, how to address it. It was a fantastic session working with my group as a pack but still addressing each dog's needs. She will come back in a few weeks and see how well I have done continuing the work and working on a few more items. This was incredibly valuable and I look forward to gaining continued insight while working with Amy.
Ty is excellent with dog training. Zeus just loved her from the minute she walked in the door and she taught us so much in just the first lesson that he is already well on the way to heeling perfectly and is so much calmer when we take him outside. She is so patient and understanding of dogs, it's like she speaks their language. We couldn't have asked for a better trainer. We would very highly recommend K9 to everybody who wants the best in dog training.
I had a doberman, Rose, that was a challenge to walk. She did not go out for walks. I found Come and Train It K9 and now Rose and I go for walks! John and Courtney really understood Rose and gave us the tools we needed to be successful. The team is extremely professional and genuinely wanted to make sure we were successful. I learned about my own shortcomings when it came to my with and toward Rose. I very much recommend Come and Train It K9 to anyone who has a dog with challenges. Rose can go out for walks now.....life is much better for her! Thank you John and team!
Misty & Wayne did their first session with my dog Bailey on last Saturday and the results have been good. I am very surpised and pleased at the amount of change in my puppy already after just one lesson. She is more controlled and the tips that they left me with really work. We have been working daily since they left and the progress is very clear. We had went to a treat-based puppy training class at a local kennel that taught her commands that she only responded to with treats and totally ignored if treats weren't invoked. After one session, she is responding without treats. I'm impressed! Can't wait to get a few additional classes under my belt.
Myself, my family and our pets have been customers of Tri-County K9 Academy for over 12 years. Whether our dogs are just starting obedience training, are working out for a dog trial, if we have a pet we have a behavior issue we need help with, or if I need assistance with my Service Dog, both Darryl and Tammy have been patient, excellent instructors and their daughters are great helpers. The environment at Tri-County K9 is set up to be safe, educational and rewarding for both animals and humans. They have watched over several of our dogs when we have had to leave town on short notice and we have always come home to happy, clean dogs that you can just tell had a well rounded fun time. Tri-County K9 Academy is an excellent experience for all whether you are training with your own dog, having your dog trained, adopting one of the many dogs rescued and rehabbed at Tri-County, needing boarding, or becoming a better dog owner. Tri-County K9 Academy should be your first stop for all your K9 needs.
Pilla has done an incredible job with our Aussie, Nox. She uses only positive training and she is very knowledgeable! It was more about teaching us than our dog and being able to understand exactly what he needs. She always explains things in an easy way to understand and she's very encouraging. Highly recommend her for all your dog training needs! She's awesome!
She is awesome with my dog Champ so far. I've only been a couple times, but she loves my dog and my dog loves her just as much. I'm very excited to see how it all turns out and I have much hope. I'll post an updated review once we've gone through more training and I can see a drastic improvement. Already in the past week he's improved
Took my Cavalier King Charles spaniel at 5 months old to Vivian for puppy training and continued with 3 additional 6 week classes. Vivian was great in training me on how to work with my dog and also in getting us prepared for being certified as a therapy pet. Very pleased with the results.
Got my dog started on walking and avoiding some distractions. I was very pleased. Explained every part of the training and why.
Mike was amazing with our dog. Would definitely recommend him to anyone having obedience issues...after 1 session our dog is like new...
Sarah is absolutely amazing! Where do I begin? As soon as you start speaking with Sarah you can immediately tell how much her profession means to her. It is clear that she is in it for the dogs and it’s obvious that she is doing exactly what she was meant to do. She will take the time to explain to you the reasons behind doing things which helps to give you a better understanding of the training and your dog. If you are looking for a dog trainer, I highly recommend Sarah!
Terry, the dog trainer, has been a great dog trainer. I have tried out many in and around the area where I live, and have never had any success. This time I am seeing successes that I never thought possible. My dog is making great strides. Yes, she has a long way to go, and so do I, but with Terry's help, I believe we are achieving that goal well. Terry is very professional, yet very down to earth, and will talk to you about what he wants you to do. He models everything for you, then he gives you the leash and lets you do the work with your dog. He offers good information and helps you to correct the areas in which you might be doing something wrong. He also seems to do so until he sees you are getting it right. He explains well, and he doesn't just say ok, now you do it. He observes closely and helps you. His work quality is tip top, and he is very responsive to the dog's needs as well as any needs the owner has in working with the dog. He knows what he is doing, and he knows how to teach people . Terry is rarely ever late, but if for some reason, he is going to be a few minutes late, he always calls me to let me know this. Value can mean one of two things to me. I always think of it in a monetary way first, and as far as the money that I have spent and am spending, I believe these lessons are a great price for the money. I think they are worth every penny I have put out for them. I think about not only being worth the money for the lessons, but when I think about it, this man drives all over the place, and the price is worth it for the 35 - 40 mi drive he makes to come help and teach me to teach my dog. I realize too, that he has expenses, and he has to pay for gasoline, so the monetary price I pay is definitely worth it. I really cannot express what kind of value Terry and the lessons exhibit on a teaching and content level. I think this is the most valuable thing I have learned in a long time. I cannot measure the value that the lessons have for my dog and me. I believe she feels like she has more structure, and I am feeling positive and excited , because I am learning to be her leader instead of the other way around. I am also feeling more respected by her. I am so happy that I found Always Faithful Dog Training and that I have Terry to help me and show me how to handle my dog !
For the first time a house cleaner was early and not late, didn’t try to change the time nor date at the last minute and worked hard, doing a good job. What a treat to find a reliable assistant! She can pet sit and do dog training as well. I’ll be utilizing these services, too. A good person as well it seems. I’d give her a 10. Carol C
Chelsea & Ty are professional dog trainers and lovers of all breeds. I wanted training provided in my own home in the circumstances and day-to-day situations encountered by my dog. Pugs can be stubborn to say the least and Modern K9s proved their integrity, quality, and ingenuity. They were eager to respond to questions or concerns at any time. I also sent my pug for a "refresher" when I had an extended trip. I think he came back home and thought home was a little boring. My dog was always eager to work with the trainers and they taught the two of us very well. I don't hesitate to recommend their service.
Kenneth at Sit Down Sit often watches my puppy for me! I’m very cautious leaving him with people as he can be a pretty sensitive dog but I know that I can always leave him in complete confidence with Kenneth. Kenneth is attentive so I know that my boy will not be getting into anything and they have a blast playing together! Additionally, kenneth is a wonderful dog trainer so I know that I don’t have to worry about my puppy slacking in his training while he is with Kenneth and Sit Down Sit.
Typically I don't post feedback for services like this. However, after the incredible training Lindsay provided for my 2yr old Aussie, Sebastian, I felt compelled to write something. I heard really great things about Loose Leash through a friend of mine and figured I would give them shot since prices were better than dog training facilities I researched around town and Lindsay was CPDT certified. I brought in my dog because I was having trouble with him getting too excited and jumping on people coming to my house, and he wouldn't come when called. Within minutes of working with Lindsay, she had my dog sitting next to me instead of jumping all over the place. Not long after that she had him coming from across the yard when called. I was amazed at how quickly Lindsay got my dog to respond! After a few more training sessions, Sebastian was a completely different dog! I highly recommend Loose Leash.
