So far it is going great. Katie seems to know what needs to be done to help Tugger become a less fearful dog, which is the root of all his issues. She suggested her two-week boarding and training program, since we are in the process of moving, which is very upsetting to Tugger. He is in a safe environment with other dogs and caring trainers. When we pick him up, Katie will provide us with suggestions to continue on the right path to a peaceful dog.
Erika is my go-to person for dog training and dog sitting! I have two rescue dogs, both adopted at the age of two with no training. Needless to say I needed help badly! Now my pups sit and wait to go in and out of doors, and they will do most anything for a treat. It's also nice to be able to go out of town and not have to worry about my fur babies! She's the only one I trust with them (and also to stay at my home with them), and she sends me plenty of updates while I'm gone.
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!
Bridgette Ashmore, owner of REACHK9, is an exceptional dog trainer. It was important that I begin the dog training very quickly. I reviewed 3 companies, spoke with 2, and invited Bridgette to visit. I was definately impressed. She is professional, extremely knowledgeable, patient, friendly, and supportive. She provides demonstrations, practice sessions, printed material, videos, dog supplies and food. She arrived at my home promptly on Tuesday and Friday and trained us for 4 hours. Her business is open 24/7 and responded to my phone calls, texts, and emails with suggestions and support. Bridgette Ashmore, REACHK9, is a wonderful choice. I have signed up as her client and look forward to our next session. I definitely see improvement in our dog. Bernadette Ervin
Joey was absolutely fantastic with our 1 year old Boxer. By the time she came back home from her four week stay at Animal Motel, she could actually stay in one place! We're very impressed with the change in her, all thanks to Joey.
I hired Lisa to care for two Great Danes and a Boxer for the weekend so all of our family could vacation together. She was awesome in keeping the dogs on their schedule with feeding and letting out. She sent me texts each day to let me know how they were doing. It was such a relief to entrust our pets to a reliable, capable and caring pet care provider.
TNT Dog training is the best of the best! She is such a hard worker and dedicated to the dogs that she works with! I recommend her over anybody around!
I have 3 GSD, 2 of which were only days away from going to a rescue, or worse. We were at our wits end with them. That is until we found OLK9, I did all my home work (tried to find something bad) found no issues with OLK9. Got the money together and off the first one went to see joey he kept in constant contact with us while he had out first of 3 babies. The day we got karma back I knew we had made the right decision and had no problem bringing the next 2 for him change, joey and OLK9 are not dog trainers they are dog savers. If more people would make an investment into their dogs as quickly as we do our cars there would be a lot less animals in the shelter. Joey transformed all 3 of our dogs, I have had to call for advice here and there. Almost all the time it has been my mistake not the dogs. Not only do we still have all 3 of our dogs but one of the dogs that was on her way out, made such a turn around that we decided to breed her (never would have done that in her past). It's impossible to give joey and his staff enough stars, so I guess 5 will have to do.
We have loved working with Ann to train our Toller. She gives great advice and uses wonderful techniques that really do work. With her help, we have a very well-trained dog.
Janet is a miracle worker. She has helped me (in my home) for 18 months with a pit bull (rescue) that was globally terrified. This was a dog that didn't leave the dressing room for a year. She was able to accomplish things with the dog that I wouldn't have thought possible. (Ex. Getting the dog to walk calmly into the house instead of crashing into the door in her frenzy to get in). Helping me teach my dog to relieve herself outside. She also was able to train dog #2 (who I got to help with the pit bull), to go in a crate - which she had never before used - in just a few minutes. I would give her the highest possible rating....beyond excellent. She is truly outstanding. She is soooo knowledgeable - about why dogs do what they do, what it means, and how to handle it. Yes - she went way above and beyond. Ex: spending 45 minutes on the phone with me one night when I was trying to decide whether or not to keep the dog. Enlisting the help of a vet behavior specialist in Texas in determining what meds would help (which one, dosage, etc.) She was always on time, and her work was of the highest quality. Not a thing went wrong. She could not possibly do better.
Gail is an amazing dog trainer and person! She was always patient, answered all of my questions and taught me the foundations for dog ownership. Because of her training, my dogs are well behaved and loved in my community. She is truly one of the best and I am so glad to have had the experience of allowing her to help train my dogs.
She really knows how to train a dog. She is very polite and calm with them. I've seen a few of her trained dogs and they are extremely well trained.
Love Kelly! She's a great dog walker. Will definitely use her again. Gus loved her and she got my very shy Bailey to go on a walk! She left me daily notes and was very good to my dogs!
I have enjoyed the help Erin has given me and "Oliver". My little guy is quite the hand full and Erin has been very helpful with advice on how to handle him. She is great at communication. We scheduled classes and she was on time and very professional. He just loves her! Oliver is still quite young but I have seen a great difference in his attention and behavior. Thank you Erin!
I hired Nicholas Salzberg to care for my 6yr old Boxer, 3yr old domestic short hair cat, and 3 sugargliders. Nick is dependable and always the first person I call when I need to travel. The animals love him and it's clear that hes is an animal lover. He's especially great with dogs.
