We hired Tatiana to work with our young dog, Maggie. Maggie was a stray that we brought into our home. She, Maggie, had some issues and definitely needed some training. Tatiana was very knowledgeable about what Maggie needed. She worked with Maggie with patience, love, and firmness when needed. She also trained us in how we should work with Maggie. She also took us on a field trip to show us how to socialize Maggie which she definitely needed. She was very patient with Maggie and our other dog that wanted attention from her, also. We are so thankful for all the help and advice she gave us. Maggie has improved so much. Trudy Kinney
Kevin, the owner of Austins, obviously loves training big dogs. And my goldendoodle responds really well to him and his technique. Kevin has been easy to work with and goes out of his way to accommodate my schedule, which has been quite a blessing! He also tries to answer any questions along the way and instruct me clearly so that I can continue what he's doing. One on one training with Kevin has been really what we needed. I would, without hesitation, highly recommend Austins GS/ Kevin for training any large breed dog.
I took my Standard Poodle to SMPR for Miriam to work with her on basic training & some behavior issues. With in three months I could see a huge differences not only in her behavior she had learned some basic skills. My poodle was a big challenge because of her inattentive behavior, very timid around strangers & very scared of loud noises. Miriam, took on this very difficult challenge and worked with my dog not only @ SMPR also in the obedience ring. My dog earned five titles.I am totally satisfied I have a great companion dog that I am pleased to take anywhere I go. The quality of work was extraordinary!!
My dog was a stubborn older chow/lab mix. Yes you can teach an old dog new tricks. Jessica has proven this by the training she has provided in such a short time. She has made a new dog of him, which I never thought possible.
We brought Cera in as first time dog owners in need of help training our dog - as well as ourselves. She was a complete natural with our dog, and her calm, professional manner also helped calm our nerves. She was a steady, knowledgeable presence that got us through the first few months of owning a dog.
Karin was great to work with. She got as much information on the home environment and the puppy as she could before the first meeting so she would be a step ahead in recommendations. She was very observant and supportive of the already established relationship between myself and my puppy. I learned many things I had no clue about or even thought to ask. She has tremendous experience and patience. I was very pleased with the initial meeting and know that if I have further questions or training needs, they will be met in the same positive manner.
High Hopes Dog Training provides an excellent opportunity for training your dog. I own a rather nervous 2 year old Golden Retriever and without Hope's instructions, I'm not sure where we would be. She definitely has a special gift when it comes to dogs. Charlie now walks comfortably on a leash, recognizes many cues for commands and is a much calmer dog. I highly recommend this service for anyone who wants assistance in training their dog. I continue to keep in touch with Hope and have recommended her to neighbors and friends.
I am so thankful for Emily! My Caesar loved working with her! Not only did she train Caesar (my male shepherd), but she also helped give me to tools to keep working with him after the training was over! I have now have been working with my puppy (since we don't live near Emily anymore) and I have the tools I need to give her some basic obedience! I'm so thankful for sweet, welbehaved dogs, and it is all because of Emily!
Couldn't ask for any better! I needed extended care and decided to have training added while I was away, thought it would be something to keep my pup busy so he didn't miss me so much, the care was exceptional and the training results were better than I could have ever asked for, and I am willing to say he didn't miss me much! I think he had a better time with them then he does with me, I will surely use them again even if it is just to give him a vacation! They kept in touch with me with lots of pictures and were always available to talk, his health is amazing, manners impeccable and I am a very happy customer. Thanks again for all you do! Will highly recommend to anyone I know looking for dog care.
Jess is an amazing trainer. She is so patient with all of her clients (dogs and humans alike). She is willing to help in any way possible to ensure my peace of mind while working with my dog. She has revolutionized my relationship with my dog as well. I am so pleased with how my dog responds to me because of the foundation Jess started.
Robin trained us along with our dog. Easy to work with, so helpful. Lots of encouragement. WONDERFUL!!!
Sarah was extremely prompt and professional. She was very concerned in doing what was right for my horse and was patient in her learning.Sarah has a natural nack to be with animals and has a way of getting the correct reaction for the action .Sarah is disciplined and kind and produces a positive outcome with the animal she is working with.
Cam was fantastic with all of our animals. She critter-sat for a week this summer and honestly I swear they're all better behaved now than when we left on vacation! I'm almost jealous of how well she got along with our two jack russells, barncats, and three horses. Her rates were very compete as well. We'll be giving her all our pet training and sitting business from now on. So glad we connected with her.
