I highly recommend Andrea as a professional dog trainer. Not only was she extremely knowledgeable and an excellent teacher, she was readily available and very flexible with her schedule. Her instructions were very clear and beneficial. In addition, I appreciated that her price was reasonable and she made all of her suggestions in one visit. She could have easily and justifiably stretched the training out for multiple private visits. She addressed all issues in one visit but was willing to come back, if necessary.
Paula made a site visit to my apartment and met with my Dog and me. She quickly identified the problem I was having with my Shiba, and drew up a plan on steps we can try to fix the fear aggression that my dog displayed. Paula asked quite a few questions which were right on queue with all the concerns I had with my dog. I look forward to seeing the results in my dog in the following weeks to come. My main goal is to have a people friendly dog, and I would like to be able to bring my dog to dog parks so she can interact with other people and dogs.
I am very pleased with Ali and her crew. She updated me daily on my dog and cat, with pictures. I will definately use her services again. Thank you Ali!
Gail knows what she is doing, she is the best dog trainer in the USA. She is realistic, fair, reasonable, and completely honest. Throw away your clickers, throw away your e-collars, and find someone who can COMMUNICATE with your dog fairly, with clarity, and get the job done! Training method is totally transferrable, you don't have to take home a dog that only listens to the trainer! Take home a dog that listens to and RESPECTS YOU! Have an off-leash, trustworthy companion. Gail is the only person in the world who can do what she does- Cesar Millan, move aside!
Carolina is hands down great at what she does, she has an excellent facility and very effective methods. She puts in extra time and effort for dogs that require extra attention (our dog for example) at no extra cost. In my honest opinion I am more then pleased of how far our pet has grown and I consider Carolina a true professional at her trade! I strongly recommend Carolina if you are serious about having your dog trained.
The dog trainer is amazing!! I didn't think Aria could be trained at all but she came in and taught her all the basics. Now Aria is a much calmer and obedient dog, she is great to have around now. Thank you
Before training with Brenda at Doggie Zen, my high energy lab/terrier mix Phoebe was an out of control, destructive, ill mannered puppy. She was sweet and lovable, but it had no clue how to "civilize" her and make her a good dog citizen. After our first training session with Brenda at Doggie Zen, I saw immediate changes. After several more sessions, she is a different dog. As a trainer, Brenda is competent, calm , patient, and knowledgeable. She had my dog's rapt attention the first time she walked into my home. She has earned my dogs love and respect, and mine too. In reality, I think I am the one who has learned the most because Doggie Zen trains the dog and the owner. The training has met and far exceeded my expectations. I can highly recommend Brenda and Doggie Zen.
We were very impressed with Dana, the dog trainer. She is very personable and you can tell she really loves the dogs! She already had our dog listening to her commands at the Consultation visit! I would highly recommend her.
The best dog trainer in Virginia Beach! Whatever your dog's needs are Lesa can deliver.She's professional and extremely talented. You won't be disappointed!
Andrea is an outstanding dog trainer and pet sitter. She has been helping me with my pets for years now. My dog Chaos is pit-lab mix and she is very hyper. Andrea has calmed her down significantly over the past year. Chaos loves Andrea and is excited to spend time with her and learn what she is teaching. I dont know what I would do without her.
Working with Renee was the most informative and thorough dog training experience I've had. She asks questions about EVERY aspect of the dog's routine upfront so that she has a full understanding of the dog's background. She will also put you through "human training" so you understand how the dog learns commands and tasks. My hyperactive German Shepherd used to run incessantly in circles and I had a difficult time getting his attention and she successful navigated these issues - when another trainer was hopeless and thought he needed to see a behavioral therapist! She is professional, prompt, and expects you to work with your dog outside of sessions so that the training sticks rapidly! THANK YOU!
My Frenchie Kenzie just went through training with Brandi and I had the best experience and so did my dog! Brandi is very good at what she does and she really is a great "go to" person for help. I haven't had a dog since my teens and she really provided lots of information. Kenzie enjoyed all her classes and really enjoyed Brandi. Brandi really takes the time to work with you and your dog. I felt that she really cares about animals and has a great love for what she does! I will be taking more classes in the future! My dog Kenzie had so much fun going it was a treat for her to go to class!
Within one meeting our dog was coming to me and sitting on my feet on command. My initial thought was these collars 'shocked" your dog as a punishment. Actually, it's more of a tap on the shoulder to get their attention back on you. Many times I thought the trainer possessed a magic want. Wonderful to have a well trained dog!
I loved working with einsteink9. Chelsea is professional and she knows her stuff. We have a Standard Poodle and didn't know they were so high powered. Our fault we didn't research. So we needed a professional trainer. Chelsea not only trained our dog but she trained us. I recommend einsteink9 100%
Ron took our puppy Dakota for a 2 week boot camp. Just when I thought Santa's gift of a dog would have to go back, he came home a completely different, better dog! Not only does Ron work with the dog, but he teaches the family how to be better pet owners. He worked great with my daughter, which was very needed to get control over this dog. Dakota is mostly behaved now, and when he isn't, we know from our lessons at Canine Class, that we need to focus more- not Dakota. I've recommended Ron to many others. Fantastic dog trainer!
Stephanie was fantastic with my dog Adi. She clearly knew what she was doing and she was more than happy to answer all of my questions. Training a dog is more than the pet it is so much about the owner and how they behave and she helped me to understand that. I would recommend her to everyone I know with a dog.
Nikki is a wonderful trainer. She is very thorough in her training. I like that she explains the pack mentality before she begins her training and gives a background of her relationships with her dogs she has had and currently has. She make me understand what it is like to be the " leader" of your dog and thathat discipline is not bad for my dog. She always uses a pleasant and calm demeanor when training even in correction and using that on my dog has worked wonders. She always explains the commands for them and the reasons why they are the commands. I havery had dogs before and very little knowledge of their behaviors and what to look for and I can now proudly walk my dog knowing that he loves me and I completely happy that I am the one that leads him. I am able to take him everywhere with me without any doubt on his behavior towards people or other animals and that he is happy. Thank you Nikki!!
I take my dog Barkley to Jordan for schutzhund and scent detection training. He has done wonders with Barkley and keeps his mind active the whole time we are there! He knows exactly how to keep him focused and stimulated and I always come back with a worn out dog. His prices are unbeatable compared to what other trainers charge for this kind of work. Jordan has a lot of experience and really knows what he's doing. I definitely recommend him to anyone that has a working dog or a dog that needs some training!

I train all types of dogs, but mostly, I train people too. It's not all about the dog's behavior. It is also the people's behavior. I communicate the way dogs think and the way they want to live. The people can explain the behaviors that they need help on breaking, and I help solve the problem. As long as the client is willing to be consistent with their pets, everyone will be happy.

Don't blame them, train them. I offer dog training with a gentle touch. I like to teach the dog how to think and watch the dog process a given command and have the dog not be afraid to try the command for fear of being wrong. Using positive methods enables the dog to want to learn. Owners love my training because it is really quite easy, and they are able to see their dog's arability to learn fast. My special skills I have are many years studying and understanding dog behavior, and the best skill of all is I can share my skills with you, the dog's owner, in a way you have not seen before.
