Lee is very energetic and patient both with the Dogs and with us people!! She is very thorough and observes our dogs behaviours while training and tailors the training to our specific needs.
When I first spoke with Kristen and I told her all my concerns, I thought she would tuck tail and run. But she did not. Prior to placing my listing on Thumbtack, I had spoken with quite a few trainers and the feeling I received from them was not about loving the dog so much as the money. It seems the ones that cost the most cared the least. I had enrolled Sophie in training at Petsmart and that turned out to be a waste of time, money and effort. Petsmart training. My conversation with Kristen was a bit lengthy and I could tell that she has a genuine love for dogs. I was still a bit nervous after all we were strangers. The Pre-Kristen Era: Sophie is an 8 month old Lab Mix. She is full of energy and walking her was a nightmare. The pulling, the walking from side to side and jumping. Of course bolting through the door and running through house like a wild banshee. She ignored my calls to come and our walks were strictly potty walks; not to mention the money I spent on puppy pads. I kept potty pads in every room of the house. Handling her was becoming more difficult with each passing day. I knew I had to do something, so I decided to give Kristen a try. I was a little nervous, I didnt know much about her other than what I learned from our conversations and read on the site. She picked up Sophie on September 4th and she would be gone for two weeks. She sent me pictures and progress reports. When Sophie returned on September 19th, I was blown away. In just two weeks, Kristen transformed Sophie into a well behaved young lady. She taught her to walk up the stairs gracefully. She sits at all doors and waits before entering or exiting, she is not all over the place when we walk. I stop, she sits. She lays on her spot oblivious to what is going on around her and most of all she has not had an accident in the house since she has been back. It is amazing what Kristen did in just two weeks. I suspect if she stayed with her longer, who knows, Sophie could possibly prepare gourmet meals or at least help with the laundry. We met at a location of my choice and we went through every command until I was comfortable with handling her. She did not bring Sophie back and leave me on my own with no guidance. She sent me a list of command words and instructed me how to use them. She contacted me to ask me how it was going and to address any problem areas. I am so glad I chose her. The only regret I have about the entire process; I did not do it sooner. She is the best because she loves what she does and loves dogs. Seriously, if you are experiencing behavior problems with your puppy or dog, contact Kristen and in just two short weeks, you will be amazed at the results.
Got my dog started on walking and avoiding some distractions. I was very pleased. Explained every part of the training and why.
A few months ago I started looking for a dog walker due to a change in my work schedule. I did a lot of research and came to the conclusion that group walk/hikes wasn't for my dog because he is a senior with joint issues. So I wanted someone who would do solo dog walks. I looked into some apps but didn't like the idea of different people coming to my house everyday. I wanted one person who I could trust (I am giving them the key to my home after all). I started interviewing people because I really wanted someone I felt comfortable with. After a few weeks of searching I found Matt. We first communicated via email and he was very prompt and professional. He came to my house to meet me and my dog Zeppelin and I immediately felt at ease with him and so did Zepp. He told me his style of dog training and I decided right there and then that he'd be the man for the job. Over the months, as my schedule fluctuates, Matt has been very accommodating. Because Zeppelin is an old crotchety old man, Matt knows when he needs to modify the walks. For example, if it's a real hot day or if Zeppelin is sick or achy. At the end of each day Matt sends me a little report on Zeppelin. (Which I love!) He sometimes sends me pictures, too. If you're looking for someone who you could trust who is reliable, thoughtful, and wonderful with animals- Matt is your guy!
Sarah is absolutely amazing! Where do I begin? As soon as you start speaking with Sarah you can immediately tell how much her profession means to her. It is clear that she is in it for the dogs and it’s obvious that she is doing exactly what she was meant to do. She will take the time to explain to you the reasons behind doing things which helps to give you a better understanding of the training and your dog. If you are looking for a dog trainer, I highly recommend Sarah!
Bobbye had my dog performing right a way and showed myself and dog walker the same. She is pleasure to work with and explains why we do and don't do certain things. Training humans is harder than dogs.
Have required services from The Bark Resort many times. Grooming, Boarding, and Training purposes. The first time we contacted them we were in desperate need of help for our very large Labrador. He was very aggressive towards other dogs and had issues with meeting new people. Thanks to Tammy and The Bark Resort we can now introduce him to other dogs with few worries that he will hurt them. This was 3 years ago and since then we have brought other dogs of ours for training as well as boarding and grooming many times.
She was very patient with my pup. He is extremely overly excited Great Dane. Just in one training session, she has been able to get him to listen to a few commands. I am looking for for future train patients with her.
Typically I don't post feedback for services like this. However, after the incredible training Lindsay provided for my 2yr old Aussie, Sebastian, I felt compelled to write something. I heard really great things about Loose Leash through a friend of mine and figured I would give them shot since prices were better than dog training facilities I researched around town and Lindsay was CPDT certified. I brought in my dog because I was having trouble with him getting too excited and jumping on people coming to my house, and he wouldn't come when called. Within minutes of working with Lindsay, she had my dog sitting next to me instead of jumping all over the place. Not long after that she had him coming from across the yard when called. I was amazed at how quickly Lindsay got my dog to respond! After a few more training sessions, Sebastian was a completely different dog! I highly recommend Loose Leash.
Terry, the dog trainer, has been a great dog trainer. I have tried out many in and around the area where I live, and have never had any success. This time I am seeing successes that I never thought possible. My dog is making great strides. Yes, she has a long way to go, and so do I, but with Terry's help, I believe we are achieving that goal well. Terry is very professional, yet very down to earth, and will talk to you about what he wants you to do. He models everything for you, then he gives you the leash and lets you do the work with your dog. He offers good information and helps you to correct the areas in which you might be doing something wrong. He also seems to do so until he sees you are getting it right. He explains well, and he doesn't just say ok, now you do it. He observes closely and helps you. His work quality is tip top, and he is very responsive to the dog's needs as well as any needs the owner has in working with the dog. He knows what he is doing, and he knows how to teach people . Terry is rarely ever late, but if for some reason, he is going to be a few minutes late, he always calls me to let me know this. Value can mean one of two things to me. I always think of it in a monetary way first, and as far as the money that I have spent and am spending, I believe these lessons are a great price for the money. I think they are worth every penny I have put out for them. I think about not only being worth the money for the lessons, but when I think about it, this man drives all over the place, and the price is worth it for the 35 - 40 mi drive he makes to come help and teach me to teach my dog. I realize too, that he has expenses, and he has to pay for gasoline, so the monetary price I pay is definitely worth it. I really cannot express what kind of value Terry and the lessons exhibit on a teaching and content level. I think this is the most valuable thing I have learned in a long time. I cannot measure the value that the lessons have for my dog and me. I believe she feels like she has more structure, and I am feeling positive and excited , because I am learning to be her leader instead of the other way around. I am also feeling more respected by her. I am so happy that I found Always Faithful Dog Training and that I have Terry to help me and show me how to handle my dog !
