Rona was easy to work with, friendly, and knowledgeable. Her approach to dog training and their behavior makes so much sense, and we have a clear path moving forward on how to help our Boston Terrier.
I highly recommend Kenny! He is very personable and professional. Communication was outstanding. Our dog’s behavior has vastly improved after 5 sessions, and we now have the tools to continue working with him after our final session. Thanks, Kenny!
Taylor is a professional in every way. She came prepared for the problem and offered and demonstrated techniques that worked immediately. It was really an eye opener. Her confidence with and in the dogs made a world of difference in their behavior. We were having problems with our dogs exhibiting aggressive behavior towards other dogs. By the end of the session, we had both dogs inside the dog park, showing no aggression. She followed up with a written synopsis of the problem and steps to take for behavior change. I would highly recommend Taylor. She has a complete grasp of dogs and their behavior, and is not afraid to " think outside the box" to problem solve. She is a pleasure to work with, and dogs respond very positively to her!
Carol Anne is a life saver! I had an accident and will not be able to walk my large active collie for several months. Carol Anne has not only done a magnificent job of bonding with and exercising my dog, she is also continuing my dog's behavioral training. I cannot recommend Waggin' Tails more highly! Thank you, Carol Anne
I've had the pleasure of working with Christie both recently and over the last several years. She is an excellent trainer! She has saved many shelter dogs that would have otherwise had a very unhappy ending. She is professional, punctual, very knowledgeable about dog behavior, and her training program has wonderful results. I look forward to working with her for years to come! I would highly recommend her services if are looking for a trainer in general or if your dog has aggression issues.
I have known Amanda for years!!! She used to train along side military working dogs and has helped me with behavioral issues. Amanda has great patience and love for dogs. She has trained my boxer and was very gentle and kind with a no none type of approach. My boxer LOVED Amanda!!!!
Very pleased with Amy's methods. Helped us to understand our dogs behavior based on her breed's prey instinct & how repetition is key. She lent us a special collar to work with our dog between training sessions. Very positive experience for us & our dog.
Kris did about a week and a half long board & train for my two [rescue] mini-poodles - both from very different backgrounds with totally different levels of training, motivation & even allergies. Take full advantage of his 2 hour consultation because Kris gets results FAST. I was sold after the first hour and had no idea how much progress could be made in such short time. When we returned from our trip abroad (during which Kris was happy to provide updates), Kris spent 2 hours in our home/at the park demonstrating what the dogs had learned and how to continue re-enforcing & building on these behaviors. Additionally, he provided a write up of how his training system works to ensure we fully understood how to stay on track with the dogs. He provides constructive criticism for the owners' interactions as well - which is super helpful since it's easy to accidently re-enforce the wrong behavior. We had one dog that incessantly barked - doesn't anymore. And one who was miserable on a leash - she's perfect now. I am excited to continue our work with Kris and see how far our poodles can get!
Kevin is a fantastic trainer -- for dogs AND their people! He has been so patient with our foster dog and has helped us all adjust to our changing environment. Kevin was even available last-minute to help us when our foster dog and family cat were not getting along. He helped us not only assess the situation but also keep both animals happy and safe. I truly believe that it is Kevin's guidance and the support from our Dog Rescue that carried us through the initial days as first-time fosters. Kevin helped make the experience a very rewarding one, and in turn helped us open up our home to a dog in need. Thank you Kevin for your patience, honesty and dedication. Two paws up!
Such an amazing experience! The dog we dropped off and the dog we took home are completely different in terms of behavior. We dropped off a dog that drug us everywhere on the leash, barked and lunged at everything, and overall was just an embarrassment to be in public With. We brought home a dog that doesn't pull on the leash and is very receptive to commands and correction. I'm so excited to see how much more she improves as we work with her more!
Marlene is so great! What I liked most was her experience and knowledge. She isn't just some trainer who went through a seminar and now thinks they are a dog trainer. I wasn't sure I even needed help thinking I could do it myself no problem. But after meeting with her I realized just how little I know about training and my dog's behavior. I realized this was an investment for the next 10-12 years that I would be spending with my pooch and am so grateful for the wealth of knowledge she provided. Marlene loves dogs and helping people and it shows.
I'm working with Kelly to train a service dog for myself. She has been absolutely wonderful every step of the way (she even went with me to meet my SD prospect). Kelly's approach to training is customized to each individual dog/handler pair. At our first training session she assessed our dog/handler relationship as well as my dog's personality to determine the best training methods for us. Kelly is wonderful about making sure you understand the reasoning behind the methods used, and she is quick to make adjustments based on your dog's response or lack there of to each method. Even after the first session, I saw a huge improvement with my dog after applying Kelly's suggestions. In addition to being an amazing dog trainer, she is an all around joy to work with. I highly recommend hiring Kelly as your trainer. You won't regret it!
I adopted a dog that was totally out of control. I took 5 training lessons from Tori at Riverdog Academy and it was life changing. She taught me how to train my dog and she helped me understand how to “talk”to my dog. Now my beautiful pup is a wonderful, well behaved, energetic, member of our household. I have recommended her to all of my dog owning friends. Brenda
Ian's professional and competent assessment of our dog's (Hank) behavior was outstanding. He implemented a plan to modify Hank's behavior, which has transformed Hank into a remarkable member of our family!
Julie is amazing and has helped our family tremendously! We have boarded our dachshund with her for over 7 years. We adopted a boxer puppy that she fostered 5 years ago. She has trained both dogs. Julie has a knack for explaining dog behavior so the layperson can understand it and be the most effective in curbing poor habits and behaviors. She has also pet/house sat our 2 cats. We feel so lucky to be able to leave town and know our fur babies are in the best of care! When our son was born, Julie helped us transition the pets to their new family member. They are all best friends now! Our dogs are ecstatic when we turn the corner to Aunti Julie's for drop off.
Daniel has been great with our dogs. He’s given us a great foundation to create better behaved dogs that has been very successful. Our friends and family have commented on the changes they’ve seen in our dogs already. Daniel doesn’t treat the behavior but instead shows us how to change the behavior from the source of the problem. He’s very patient and kind and I would recommend him to anyone looking for help with their dogs.
She did a great job my dog was having some behavioral issues and potty issues and she was able to train a six month old chihuahua she now knows how ring her bell at night to let me know she has to go... She was also able to potty train my roommates jack Russell which I thought was impossible
Ginny is amazing! The best Trainer ever she is great with people too. Her knowledge and experience make her a truly gifted person. I have watched her train various breeds for different areas example service dogs. Ginny, is fun, loves dogs and can teach any behavior .
