So far it has been a great experience and look forward to learning more to train our dog.
My little dog is very fearful.-frightened of strangers. Not the K9 trainer! My dog was analyzed and I was told exactly what could be done to help her. And how it would be done
Carol was very helpful in my dog's training experience. She was calm, informative and knowledgeable. Will be using again!!
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!
There are many people who call themselves dog trainers but there are very few who can actually produce results and are in fact the best in the business Don't waste your time with anyone else but Benito Olsen & Patriot Dog Training. I guarantee you will not regret using Patriot Dog Training as your dog trainer and you will get outstanding. Don't settle for less or mess with the rest when you can have the best. Benito Olson & Patriot Dog Training are as good as it gets. Cannot recommend highly enough!!!!
Kris is awesome! I would highly recommend him to anyone. I got my dog, Apollo, almost a year ago at the age of a year and a half. He was the easiest dog at the beginning, did everything I asked. A few months ago, Apollo, started to challenge me on everything, going on walks became impossible because he was so hyper. Then he became aggressive or at least I thought he was. When we'd walk, he'd try to attack any walker, biker, or runner that came near me. He started to growl and act like he was going to attack anyone that would come into my house. It got to the point, I was about to take him back to the pet shelter I got him at. I was terrified he'd bite someone and then he'd be put down. I was pretty against professional dog training, as I've heard horror stories from friends of spending a large sum of money with no results. After a very close encounter of Apollo almost biting a girl renting a room in my house for the weekend, I gave in and thats when I met Kris. Kris came to my house for a free two hour evaluation with Apollo, in which he got to know Apollo, I told him about the struggles, and then we went on a walk. Kris showed me several training techniques even during the elevation. He cares far more about helping your dog and you build a stronger relationship, in which both parties are happier, than just getting his money for the training. Kris is very passionate about what he does, which helps create a fun, exciting, training environment. I have never felt stupid for not knowing how to handle my own dog, or for asking questions, even if I had to ask the same one several times. Kris doesn't just take your dog and train him, he involves you, the owner, a great deal. This helps me a lot, because I didn’t know anything about how to train a dog before this. Kris will give me pointers, or explain why Apollo is acting a certain way when I do something. I feel very lucky that I have a dog trainer who is not only patient with Apollo, but so amazing at training me on how to train my dog. Kris is truly amazing at what he does, and seeing his connection with animals is extraordinary. I’m telling you, if you want to see immediate improvements hire Kris. I highly recommend not waiting to contact him, with his results his services will be in high demand soon. Thank you Kris, I can’t tell you how much it means to me that Apollo is such an obedient, loving dog now, our relationship/connection is so strong, it’s incredible.
I higherd Daniel to train my dog. He came to my home and explained his background. He asked me to fill out a contract and wanted full payment upfront. Fortunately I only gave him half down. He was supposed to come to my home today between 5 and 5:30. It is now 6:40 and he has not responded to any of my calls or text. I wanted to hold off on sending this review but in trying to contact a Thumbtack representative about this company to see if they even exist I was prompted to fill out this review.
Upon the first meeting with Hilary, I felt that she had a really great attitude and willingness to do whatever it took to make my dog feel comfortable. Super Big Plus...She was able to start right away, which took a lot of stress off of my mind. She's also very easy to work with for any adjustments to the daily/weekly walking schedule. I have a lot of gratitude for her choice to work with animals and it gives me peace of mind, that she knows her stuff.
We have a 9 month old French Mastiff who is a big big dog and we couldn’t even walk him because he was just tugging and impossible to manage. After his two weeks with Bill and Megan he was walking off leash and obeying several important commands. It’s like we have the dog we always dreamed of owning. Now we will have our French Bulldog go in and be transformed as well. Can’t wait to continue working with our dogs so we can all have the best relationship. Thank you Bulletproof!
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.
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.
Derek is extremely professional and is great with animals. He has been walking my dog for several weeks now and I couldn't be happier with the level of service provided. I have recommended Bones and Leashes Pet Service to friends in the area.
Cheryl took very good care of my dog and cat over the weekend. She was easy to contact and to set up dates to meet my animals. She even sent me a picture to let me know they were ok. I will use her in the furture to take care of my animals.
I am willing to take care of anyone's dog anytime. I love dogs. I have one of my own that is 6 months old. I believe that dogs are part of the family and should be treated as such.
I am an experienced house sitter, dog sitter, cleaner, landscaper, and general contractor. I am prompt and thorough, and I take pride in my work. I am a people person and work well with direct instruction. Getting the job done exactly to the customer's satisfaction is of the utmost importance to me.
I am a senior looking for ways to save up for college. I do babysitting, dog walking and house-sitting, you name it! I have a car, so I am able to travel to you. Thanks for stopping by; have a great day!
I love & care about these pet and animals. That's what I have done since I was young. It's what I love doing, taking and caring for these animals that need the love and action. I'm a big animal lover, it's what I love.
I'll walk the animals in naturalistic places, like the disc golf course, Eisenhower trails, and common neighborhoods. I love to give treats and even dance or sit for them. Positive praise gets you farther than barking commands. I'm very squishy and huggable, and I let my dog and other animals sit on my lap for some special petting attention. If they need a bath, I can facilitate it. Also, I have plenty of squishy places for them to sit and rest and a backyard for them to bark and run around.
