I have done 2 of the 3 sessions I purchased. It's been a good experience and I've received a lot of useful tips to help me with my puppy.
Bill has done such an amazing job with Aubrey! Before having him as my dog trainer, I thought that training my puppy was impossible. Aubrey was very disobedient, never listened when I called, aggressive with other dogs, and destroyed just about anything. I was running out of options, and considered giving my puppy away. K9 training was my last resort, and my best investment! Just a few days at Off Leash K9 training, and Aubrey transformed into new dog! He contacted me frequently about Aubrey's progress and was always happy to answer any questions I had. I highly recommend him to anyone with dog issues!
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.
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 have been attending Kevin's dog training classes - both his 6 week basic manners & intermediate class, and his regular Wednesday Back to Basics classes. My dog Rouge has gone from being a skittish dog who while in public wouldn't mind at all to being an example for others to a certain degree. Kevin is very detailed in his training & helps the class to be fun & enjoyable!
We have a 5 year old pit bull that has been a stubborn, dog aggressive, and high anxiety dog since he was very young. He has a lot of energy but because of his behavior I was unable to take him on walks. Kelly, from Knine training showed me the proper way to use his pinch collar which stopped his pulling on walks all together. He responded extremely well to the corrections I was giving him with the pinch collar. Kelly has personalized the training by listening to our dogs existing problems and showing my husband and I the proper way to correct him. Kelly is always very patient and gives us great feedback which is always effective. Our dog has improved by leaps and bounds in just a matter of weeks with the help from Kelly. We appreciate everything she has done so far to help our dog and we look forward to continuing our training with her.
Elisha is the best! Very professional and knowledgeable. She has been very helpful teaching me techniques to build my dogs confidence. It's a slow process, but we are well on our way. Our ultimate goal is to get her to use the doggie door, and I am sure that in time, that will happen.
We have used Proper Paws for daily walking and 24-hour home pet sitting for two dogs, a Rhodesian Ridgeback and a Border Terrier. They are punctual, very professional, reasonably priced and know how to treat your pet like family. We have used their service for over 5 years. We highly recommend them! Christine P.
Millie has been a life saver! She comes to my home twice a week to walk my puppy. She doesn't just walk her around the block, she takes her for long walks. She also assists with any training I am currently working on with my puppy: sit, stay, down, pulling on leash, even potty training. She leaves extensive notes after each walk to let me know what they worked on each time. She is very sweet and I am so thankful to have found her. I highly recommend her services.
My husband and I have been very happy to have found Janet Echavarry from A Better Dog Training, Inc. We had adopted a rescue dog back in March. The we decided to have him trained as well. Our dog Pistol Pete has been so great since we went through the training. He gets so excited every time Ms. Jan comes over to the house and now since the training is complete, knowing that we can contact her anytime, if we ever need anything or have any questions or concerns. She is wonderful and so helpful. We also take Pistol Pete over to spend time boarding with Ms. Jan for a few days to a week when we are out of town. We are very happy knowing he is being taken care of when we can't be home with him. She has the most clean environment for your pets and they all have a great space to run around and meet new friends. Every dog we saw there were so happy and comfortable in their own kennel. That made me happy knowing when we leave our dog there, he is kept comfortable, happy and spoiled in his air conditioned area and it was always clean!!! And it does not smell like a kennel in there and that really made me happy! If you are thinking about getting your pet trained, you could not pick a better person, or company to do this. We did our homework before choosing her. We contacted several other places in our area but was not happy with any of them and then Ms. Jan was recommended to us by our Vet's office. She came highly recommended and we are so glad we have her taking care of our dog. She is like family to us now and couldn't be happier with the professionalism and services she provides to her clients. So if you are in need of a wonderful, caring and loving person to take care of your pets or need them trained, you really need to check out Janet Echavarry from A Better Dog Training, Inc. You will be very satisfied that you did.
Rosie volunteered her time as a foster mom for Alamo Rescue Friends, a non-profit dog rescue group in San Antonio. She provided wonderful canine care. Rosie is committed to the best interests and well-being of the dogs in her care. She is responsible, attentive, and a pleasure to work with.
Glenda was very professional and responded to emails promptly. She asked questions to make sure she understood fully what I was needing help with and offered solid advice and a training plan to accomplish those goals. She was never late and provided great quality work. The issues I had with my dogs were resolved with Glenda's help. She uses only modern training methods of positive reinforcement rather than rely on shock collars, prong collars, or other punishments so I felt very comfortable with her around my dogs. This is unlike most trainers who want quick results through old methods of training at the cost of your relationship with your dogs.The cost of her training was very reasonable and the service she provided well exceeded the cost. She is a great trainer with tons of experience. She is patient and knows the best way to help you (or will direct you to someone who can if she cannot which is a huge indicator of the level of care she has for her job... she isn't just going to take every case just for the money, she really wants to help you out, even if its with someone else). She's incredible and you won't regret working with her.
My training methods are gentle, allowing the animal I work with to choose the to shape themselves to the behaviors I am offering to them in my program.

I offer a variety of services, from helping to choose a dog from the shelter to simple and more advanced training. I also offer advice and guidance for those who are just having a few 'issues'. It is far better to ask advice from trainers like us than to give your dog up to the shelter. Most problems can be fixed and often quite quickly. Only using positive reinforcement and never punishment on your dog, I train YOU to train your dog. Its better for the dog to be taught by someone he knows and loves than from a stranger. I stick with you throughout the process and you are able to contact me between sessions. Seeing the best results is my goal for you and your dog.
I am self employed. I can help you train your dog if he/she is a good candidate to become a service dog for PTSD or has physical disabilities. I also provide basic obedience training for dogs.
I am a pet lover; however, I specialize in dog walking, training, sitting, bathing, and some grooming. I am gifted in helping shelter dogs overcome the social and mental effects from their journey. I only use positive reinforcement training. I also like to organize and clean, either light or deep. I also realize that everyone has certain specifications or certain methods they prefer to be used; I'm superb at following instructions and committing them to memory for future visits. I can do laundry also; plus, I'm great with ironing.
We provide different types of dog training. Classes include obedience, trick training, Canine Good Citizen preparedness and our new class, "Junior Trainers", for school-aged children.
I have been working with owners and dogs to build a lasting relationship through training. Dogs who are trained make lifetime pets and friends.
I specialize in behavior modification -- from something so small as puppy basics, agility, neat little tricks like praying (much more fun ones) to aggression out! I'm the one here to help, and we will have fun doing and watching your beloved. Become exactly what you have imagined, and I meet new challenges.
