Martha is a very intuitive, miracle worker!! I adopted a 1-year old rescue a year ago, so sweet and what seemed a perfect fit. After a couple of weeks, she woke up and was a holy terror - a nightmare to walk, lunging, barking and disturbing the neighbors. I did some private lessons, and enrolled in a highly regarded school specializing in positive dog training. I had a "reactive" dog and everything seemed to set her off. The teachers were very nice, but after hundreds of dollars and several sessions of Growly Dog, and BAT Clinic, there was only the very slightest improvement. I still had to plan my walks, avoiding all of the triggers...which was pretty much everything. The whole business was exhausting. Finally, I called Martha :>) She spent hours with us, explaining what was going on with my sweet girl, what we were doing right and what wasn't working...and then we took to the street. She spoke with my neighbor explaining my dogs behavior and let him know it was all going to be a thing of the past. She visited the other dogs on the street, the kids, a bicyclist, crows, squirrels...my dog shook like a leaf, but eventually calmed down. I saw my dog transform right in front of my eyes, becoming happy and relaxed and walking pretty. Two days later, I am reaping the benefits of Martha's visit. Still a work in process, but I have enjoyed our walks, and I feel free to walk where I choose. We were able to quietly walk near a small dog tonight that has always been on the receiving end of my dogs bark. We were both happy. Thank you Martha!!
All aspects of our Dog Training experience were Excellent! We will be working with Jen for the next few months.
Cindy Wilson did a fabulous job with assisting me with training my dog,Hershey . She was well prepared with handouts to support and supplement her instruction. I highly recommend Cindy as a dog trainer! She loves dogs and strives to assist her clients to be successful with their pets.
Wendy was awesome to work with and Junior (our dog) learned a lot We would definitely recommend Wendy to anyone that needs some training for their pup.
I've known Ana for several years. She helped me so much with my dog and did my dog's service training. You will not find a more capable trainer for either animals or humans. I recently watched her break up what was going to be a dog fight while talking to a client on the telephone without hesitation and while maintaining her conversation with the client. We are still laughing about that.
We just had our consultation with Shawna about our dog's aggression issues. She had some great insight on what is causing the issues, and gave us some things to work on at home until our next session. After meeting with her, my husband and I are confident that she can help correct this behavior. I highly recommend Shawna to anyone looking for a calm, straight forward, and practical approach to dog training.
We love Zoom Room! The staff are amazing, especially Olivia at the front desk! The owner Cheryl is truly a gifted dog trainer and an all-around awesome person. Zoom Room offers numerous classes and you will find no trainer more dedicated to you and your pup than Cheryl; she has taught me so much about being a good handler and my dog Xedo loves her. Xedo has excelled at Agility under her awesome direction and insight. Even now, while he is recovering from ACL surgery, Cheryl has been so awesome, checking on him and offering ideas and encouragement. Cheryl is going to help us build strength in his knee, by utilizing one of her class specialties, “Puplates”! Best of all Zoom Room is a community gathering place where like-minded, fun loving dog owners and their awesome pups can meet up; whether it’s for "Agility League Night" (a friendly competition for pups and their peeps!) or celebrating while playing games and enjoying lite fare. Xedo even had his 6th birthday party at Zoom Room! Boy was that fun!! We have so many favorite events at Zoom Room it's hard to name them all! Cheryl is so awesome at putting together parties to celebrate every new season, including holiday photos shoots for pups and their owners. There is no better training studio around! If you are looking for a great community to connect with while learning tons about training your dog and having lots of fun while doing it, look no further! Zoom Room is perfect!
Alex was professional, on time and flexible with our schedule. He provided us with good feedback and course corrections in a nonjudgmental approach. He was easy to work with and provided us confidence moving forward with a new puppy.
I am 110% satisfied with Vivians care of my pets while I was on vacation! She was courteous, punctual, reliable, obviously knowledgeable and just a real sweetheart! My pups and I liked her immediately! She even got my "shy" dog to actually leave the yard and go for a walk! I haven't been able to get her to willingly do that! Thank you, Vivian! She sent me periodic status updates and pictures! When I got home she took time to "educate" me on some techniques for continuing the training she had done with my shy dog and she will be coming back for further training sessions! I am grateful I found Vivian and will highly recommend her to friends and family! Thank you Vivian from me and Autumn, and Summer, and Dinah!
Cassie has cared for our golden retriever both as a puppy and as an adult dog when we were away. Not only does she take excellent care of her but I feel so much better leaving her with someone with a clinical background in veterinary medicine so if anything were to happen she would know exactly how to handle it. I highly recommend Cassie and her services to other pet owners.
I highly recommend the Pawsitive Packleader whether you are getting a puppy, having issues with an older dog, or need guidance for whatever stage your dog is in. They are incredibly committed and are in your corner when you are their client. Prescott helped train my dog when he was a puppy, and he and Richard keep coming up with new training and exercise ideas as he moves into adulthood. They also referred me to an nutritionist (Patti) who was helpful as I looked towards an overwhelming amount of dietary choices for my dog.
Julie's knowledge and expertise were evident from the clear instructions she provided to me and the way she interacted with my Husky-Mal mix, Koda. Koda would go crazy whenever she encountered other dogs when we took our walks, so I sought Julie's help in finding ways to deal with those situations, as well as ways to help introduce her to known friendly dogs. She brought her dogs (Malamutes) to assess Koda's reactivity and we worked on exercises to divert her attention and to gradually approach and greet her dog in a more controlled manner. She also showed me how to prevent Koda from jumping up when greeting people and tips on training her to greet people politely. I've been practicing what I learned with Koda and her behavior has definitely improved. I'd recommend Julie/Learning 4 Life Dog Training to anyone looking for training and practical advice using positive reinforcement.

I offer easy, basic obedience for your beloved pooch. It's fun and gratifying to have your best friend obey. Also, obedience makes for a trustworthy pet. I love dogs, and have trained my own. I can do it for you, too. My basic obedience will also free up your time. You will come home to a pet that is well behaved and personable. I'm excited to help your dog become the fun, loving and enjoyable companion that you desire.
We are positive method training service but with multiple types of trainers
You can think of training as learning life lessons. Pet dogs have the capacity to become a loving, even tempered, and well-mannered member of the family. All it takes is hard work dedicated to teaching dogs according to how they learn individually. My understanding of dog communication and cognition allows me to accommodate various levels of intelligence and energy in order to structure a lesson plan for individual dog needs. Training should motivate confidence and problem solving which can be built upon to gain consistency in proper behavior, end unwanted behaviors and strengthen the bond of your family.
I am nineteen and I used to work with search and rescue. I have trained my Shepherd to do air scent and I am very patient. Making dogs happy is my main goal.
I train little pups into mellow, mild-mannered mutts and teach pet owners to understand where their dog/puppy is coming from.
I train dogs. I was in 4-H for 4 years training and showing dogs. I will work on obedience trying with your dog.
