Incredibly knowledgeable, immediately effective, we started noticing results in our dog's behavior the next day, and after only 1 lesson. Very down to earth and great rapport with dogs (and people)! Thanks Lauren, we'll be scheduling more lessons soon.
Butch did a great job with our dog Harley she was a very aggressive dog before and had some behavior issues that needed to be corrected and butch did a great job helping her I would recommend this place to anyone!
After the first session, there was a huge improvement in my dogs behavior, and the instructions were easy to follow and continue after the instructor left the house.
Everything about Lynette is amazing. She treats my dogs like her own and has done amazing things with their behavior. I'm so happy I found her.
Nancy was very informative and started the training immediately while explaining the concepts and methodology of Bark Busters. During the first visit, Nancy took us through and practiced with us the techniques needed to train our dog effectively. We have seen an immediate change in our dog’s behavior. We are looking forward to our future training sessions.
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!
made our Irish wolfhound a manageable and more enjoyable companion and gave us clear guidance on how to continue improving the dog;s behavior, as well as the offer of future assistance.
Wanda was wonderful with my 2 year old previously neglected foster dog and was able to teach me some very simple techniques to start training him. After one session there was already a marked difference in his behavior. I am no longer as stressed on the what or how to train him. She is prepared with treats and how to start. And she emailed me further instructions on how to work with him until our next session. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Before her help, he was too antsy to pay attention, and I had no way to reach him. Now he makes eye contact and enjoys our training sessions.
She was able to answer all questions about my puppy with ideas on how to correct unwanted behaviors. All training is positive.
Pamela did amazing with our dog. She was very good at explaining our dogs behavior and how to correct it. We were able to conquer basic commands and break his jumping habit. She was a pleasure to work with and very flexible with our schedule.
He is excellent trainer he correct a lot of behavior to my Akita dog and Brian did a fantastic job with hachi overall from obiedence till all the bad behavior that my dog used to do , I will defenetly suggest him to all my friends and family .
My dog Bruno is a young rowdy pup, very smart but also very strong willed. After attempting to watch You Tube videos and train him myself, it seemed like I was getting nowhere. I was at my wits end and discouraged. I needed serious help! I brought my Bruno to Canine perceptions after reading good reviews elsewhere and needing help with his behaviors. He went through the 6 week off leash program and graduated yesterday. 1st, I'm very happy to have him home for Christmas but the change is so noticeable! I knew he would be super excited to be home and expected bad behaviors once he left. Only one day, but the change is extreme. The Staff of Canine perceptions returned my baby not only well cared for, but well mannered! The training they gave me put everything into perspective and gave me the understanding I needed to continue Bruno's training. I could not begin to explain how grateful I am to them.
Amber is very personable and seems to love animals. Her dog was really trained well and got along with ours right away. I will know more once we get our BG back when she is done. I was very impressed with her place. There weren't a bunch of kennels all over and it was spotlessly clean. I think we made the right choice...
Elizabeth is such a blessing; I cannot say enough great things about her. I recently adopted a puppy, as a first time dog owner, and made the BEST decision to work with her every step of the way. She helped me since before I even adopted my puppy - she helped me find the best puppy for me and prepare my house to bring her home. After our first obedience training session, the puppy had already learned (among other things) how to sit!!! She is helping me socialize the puppy with my cats who have never been around dogs, and has taught me so much about understanding my cats behavior and body language that I had no idea about. Elizabeth is always available to answer any questions I have and is always willing to help. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone!!
Laura is amazing, she took care of our animals while we were on vacation and was just great! They were all very comfortable with her and loved her in no time, she sent us pictures at every visit which made us worry so much less while away. I'd recommend her to anyone!
I Highly recommend Shiloh she is Knowledgeable and relates well with all Animals. She is the Animal Whisperer
Arlene Ruiz was very pet friendly. My 3 cats were attentive to her right away on their first meeting. Everything was well taken care of.
Wonderful care for our 6 animal zoo while we traveled for the holidays! Daily updates via text. Highly recommended, and we will utilize again in the future.
Karen has been taking care of my three cats and one dog for years. She is better than outstanding - lets my cats out to play in the backyard where they can't escape and then returns to let them back in. She brushes them, feeds them, takes care of the litter box. My sweet dog is a special needs dog; Karen loves Cali and takes extra special care of her. Karen is my neighbor and often just comes over and takes Cali for a walk or just checks on the animals even when I am in town. Does Karen go above and beyond? Absolutely! Karen couldn't do better as she is already the best!
