We have a male white westie with a loving and smart character. Our only main concern he also was insecure, he would bite, and he had a dominate personality. What a combination for a little precious dog. We tried to work with him but soon found out we needed expert help. We called Precious Treasures Dog Training. I spoke to Travis and explained our problem with Mac. He was very supportive and confident he could help us. He offered two plans for Mac. He could stay for 30 days or have hourly training at your home. We chose the 30 days because of the biting. Wow! what a difference it has made in our life and Mac's. Our trainer, Travis and his pack are great! What a difference! I can never express in words the new actions in our little westie. We have a daily routine of walking, comands, and just playing ball. Travis is just a phone call away if or when we may him. He will always be there for us. Wow!
After a near catastrophic event involving my dog Feilong and an ignorant kid Catherine took him in and rehabilitated him. She trained him to be more trusting and less aggressive and my only regret is that she didn't get a chance to work with him longer! I know that without her help and guidance I never would've been able to get him to trust any stranger again. She helped me and gave me advice on how to continue training and guiding him to be a better dog around strangers!
We used Brian VanDePutte at Liberty Canine Ranch in August 2016 for modifying negative behavior in our dog. Our experience was very good. We had adopted a border collie cross from a shelter who had a couple of issues: 1) not coming when called, and 2) chasing cows (we live on a ranch-not good!). After 1½ years of my husband and I exhausting every idea we had to correct him, I ran across Brian's ad. I was certain that I would hear a long discourse on why my dog needed a full course of obedience training to be helped, but to the contrary, Brian said he could focus on just what needs correcting. After 1 week at LCR and a few months of following Brian's lessons for us at home, my Skeeter is a different dog...like a dream come true for me. Brian's techniques are very effective; he is a “natural” with dogs. I really think he knows how they think. He is flexible and will try to customize the dog training program to fit your needs, always very professional yet personable. We recommend LCR to owners who have dog training needs on any level - great or small. Longhorn M Cattle Company
Kaci is amazing with dogs. She has been training dogs and teaching people how to properly handle their dogs for quite some time. Don't let her youthfulness fool you! She knows her stuff! Kaci has always had patience to make sure my young daughter understood what she was teaching her about her dog. My daughter even won an award for handling thanks to Kaci and her expertise! She shows compassion for all animals and is driven to continue to be the exceptional trainer that she already is.
I dropped my Dalmation ( Chief ) off at 14 weeks with Wheatland Dog Center for a 20 day training program. The owner Kayla kept me updated on his progress along the way, sending videos and pictures to show how well he was doing. When I picked Chief up, Kayla gave a demonstration of how she trained Chief and showed me how to work with him. It has been almost a month since I got my pup back and he is still doing great. I've had to contact Wheatland Dog Center a few times for helpful pointers along the way, Kayla was great with explaining ways I could resolve the issues that I had. I will definitely be sending any dogs I get to Wheatland Dog Center in future.
Dustin has given me reports every time I have asked about preacher, my 3 y/o male black lab. He is very honest about what he is doing well and also what he is struggling with and then he can explain what he will do to correct the problem and get preacher to push though to the next level. Very pleased
Best trainers I have ever worked with. Vast knowledge and experience. My dog was facing euthanasia due to behavior problems, and is now a happy, well rounded, member of our household. Thank you so much for saving Rolo!
My dog and I learned so much in our obedience class! Caren is a wonderful instructor and makes learning fun. Rachel is a fantastic groomer who does the BEST nails with her dremmel. Everyone is friendly and professional. I recommend them all the time.
Lynne has helped us for two plus years with our dogs and is dependable, honest, caring, knowledgable and is now part of our family. Our dogs wait at the door for Lynne to arrive on their days to walk with her! She cares for them when we leave on vacation and is excellent!!
Dexter S. began training me in September 2015. I decided to get a trainer after hitting a huge plateau in my work out regime. Dexter and his training program was able to let me see results that I had never seen in my own workout routine or past. Dexter works me out and also educates me. He listens to what I wanted to do and creates programs to target my main focus as well as other body parts that support my goals. Dexter also keeps me current on diet tips and foods that fuel my overall goals. Dexter is not afraid to push and challenge me, and I definitely have seen improvement in my body and endurance. Overall, it has been an excellent experience!
