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.
I was in a long search for a dog trainer that had ample experience with German Shepherds, as everywhere I looked, it was more of a cookie cutter/group training class where I could not get the results or experience for training this breed that I was looking for. I finally came across Butch through a reference from the DFWGSR, and after having several phone conversations with him, I made a decision that I was going to take my 7 month old German Shepherd with him for a 2 week board and train. His knowledge on GSD's and other working breeds is impressive and the results are great. He does a great job in getting your dog to where you can take over and continue the work at home with much less effort. I can honestly say that this is the best dog trainer that I have come across. The results you get speak for his years of experience and love for dogs. I definitely recommend Butch and his team if you want impressive results, service and the type of experience you get after training dogs for all type of service work for over 30 years.
Maury did an excellent job with our dog. There are so many dog trainers out there we were not sure who to go with, but after only 1 week of training, we can see a huge difference. Maury loves the dogs he trains, and always wants a chance to see pictures of our dog. His 2 follow appointments are so helpful as well.
Finding a dog trainer is difficult. Finding Lynette who has actually trained CAIRN Terriers is a bonus! We start working together next week.
Nancy has been such a life saver for my husband and I! She has only been working with our puppy, Remi for a month now, and I can already see such a huge difference in her behavior, manners, and obedience. The part I love most is that she meets at your home. Meeting at our house enables us to use her methods and trainings in the area our dog is the most, at home! I have been able to watch the way she trains and directs my dog and mimic that, and it has changed so much for the better! The counter surfing has decreased drastically, her basic obedience skills are close to perfect, and we are still working towards other behavior goals such as jumping. Nancy is so sweet and caring to us and our dog. She gives out her personal number to you in case of emergency, any needs, or questions you might have. I would highly recommend her to any friends I have looking for someone to help with your dogs behaviors! Thanks Nancy!
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!
Wanda was very helpful with explaining training to us with our dog. Great information.
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!
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.
Tena is very professional and knowledgeable about training dogs. She has a very pleasing personality and I really like her. I would recommend her to help you with your dog training needs.
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 dogs 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 Auggies 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 Auggies 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.
Liz was great with us! She taught my husband and me how to use clicker training with our dogs. She arrived promptly and was professional and courteous. She explained what she did as she was doing it and helped us understand how to continue with them.
Amber was the perfect trainer for our dog Patterson and we would eagerly recommend her to our friends.
Michelle was a delight! She took such good care of my dog and my house. All went perfectly! I definitely recommend her...
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
Karen has been our go-to pet sitter for years! Our boys, two Australian shepherds, love her and we know that when she is here, we have nothing to worry about. We love that we can leave our dogs at home where they are most comfortable and not worry about leaving them in a kennel away from everyone and everything they know. Karen truly loves animals and has a soft spot for our doggies - it's clear by the way they act when she comes over! Recently, one of our dogs got out and was lost. Karen was so upset by this news that she personally went out looking for him. In the end, she is the one who found him and rushed him to the vet after he was hit by a car. He is doing great now and we are so thankful to have someone like her who cares so deeply for our fur babies.
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.
We have two terriers, ages 4 and 5. We adopted both animals well into their adulthood, and neither had any training. We put up with the accidents in the house, the nipping, and the complete lack of obedience for far too long because we wanted our new additions to settle in before we started correcting their behavior. Well, that is where Damon came in. He assured us that our dogs could behave AND go to the bathroom outside. That they were not the worlds worst (although cutest) dogs, but actually good dogs! What? My dogs can be trained? I was a little skeptical. Initially, we signed up for a private session. We love our dogs, but surely he would change his mind when he met them. Our dogs interacted with Damon wonderfully. They are a little much at times, and he knew exactly how to handle them to get them to calm down or play. We worked on some potty training techniques and talked about the format of his training class. Sure enough, we enrolled our dogs into a six week beginner course and they really responded. They enjoyed going to the park once a week, interacting with other dogs and humans, and best of all, working for food! Never in a million years did I think my dog would "sit" on command. Now they sit, wait, lay down, touch, and leave it! AND THEY POTTY OUTSIDE. I know these things may seem extremely basic to some people, but I honestly didn't think my dogs could be trained - not even to sit. I know some of you out there have dogs like mine. I do want to say, Damon only provides the tools. If you do not reinforce the expected behavior at home then your dogs will not respond. Our dogs were ready to work every Saturday morning, but not so much when we got home. Once we started enforcing those expected behaviors we got much better results. Be prepared to put in just as much work as your pup. I highly recommend Damon! Can't wait to enroll our dogs in more advanced training!
I came to Copilot Academy with our 5 month old Aussie/Blue Heeler mix named Roxy. She was CRAZY to the point that she barked at everything that moved, living or non-living. I couldn’t even go on a walk with her which frustrated me immensely. I booked private lessons with Natalie and after 6 month my dog was completely transformed. I love how well behaved Roxy is now whether it is on leash and off leash. I also appreciate that Copilot Academy’s trainers are honest, non-judgemental and supportive in every possible way. It was money well spent!
