Sylvia is great! She clearly has a broad base of knowledge and experience with dogs and their handlers. She is great at explaining dog behavior clearly, and in a straightforward way. I loved being around her, and enjoyed the training session. I've already recommended her to two of my friends who need pup training. She clearly cares a tremendous amount about dogs and their people.
Very knowledgeable trainer . Gave us lots of advices on nutrition, understanding on the behavior of our dog. Our dog who is aggressive to most of our guests at home was so different after Martha came. He was calm and learnt to be respectful to her instantly. Amazing!
Excellent trainer who can answer any questions regarding an animals behavior. Highly professional.
Anne is great, and we are seeing constant improvement in our dog's behavior using Anne's recommendations. Super simple and it works!
Already seeing improvement after one session. She caught a lot of little issues we hadn’t thought were issues as we just dismissed them as puppy behavior or a phase
Laura brought a much needed personal touch to the training of our dog. Behavior modification - Coco no longer has that wild and crazy uncontrolled energy she had before training. Children are no longer afraid to pet her and my 9yr old is no longer her chew toy😆. She comes when you call, respond quickly when chastised and walking her is a joy!!
Have only met once in our home. Patty sent us a written report of her assessment of our pup, with the desired goals. We will continue meeting with her, with her directing our 'behavior' to come to those desired goals.
I have loved my experience at Zoom Room! The prices are reasonable and positive training is working very well for me and my pup. Cheryl is extremely knowledgeable and intuitive about my dog's behavior and has been patient with me as I learn how to use the clicker. Also, she was understanding when I had a problem with my payment card, which I feel is an example of her non-judgmental and easy-going attitude. I will definitely continue my training at Zoom Room!
We have a 100 pound 5 year old German Shepard that was aggressive to other dogs while on leash. They helped us understand his behavior on leash. They are still helping me be more consistent and watch and understand the cues my dog is giving me. I appreciate their patience and true passion for helping did owners help their dogs.
Thomas has provided great training and support for my puppy and myself as we grow together. We started training when my puppy was just 3 months old and plan to continue for several more months. The positive yet practical approach has been so effective and Thomas' vast knowledge and understanding of my dog's behaviors has been such great encouragement for both of us! I have recommended him to just about every pet-parent I have met!
My experience has been a very good one. I had been having trouble with my dog biting me when we went for walks. That problem seems to be solved. Shawna's understanding of animals has helped to translate some of the dog speak for me. In other she has been able to explain the dog's actions for me and to tell me how to deal with her, I am very grateful for her help.
We have a little Shih Tzu named Oliver. Oliver is a year old and was out of control. He would not listen, sit, or stay. I found Alex and life has been so much better with Oliver!! He sits when told and stays for a little bit. We are still working on it! :) Alex is patient and kind. You can see right away that he loves animals and most importantly, animals love him back! Oliver took to Alex immediately. Alex has a very gently and patient approach. He gets results as after only 2 sessions Oliver was sitting, staying, and listening much better. I highly recommend Alex and I will be continuing our sessions with him and Oliver.
Melinda is incredible! I think our pets are hoping we will travel again soon so that they can hang out with her! She is very diligent, detailed, and absolutely loves animals. She really treated our older cat and dog like they were her own. I cannot recommend her highly enough and it gave us great piece of mind that our pets and home would be well cared for while we were gone.
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.
Asya is amazing worker! She really takes care of my animals with love and big responsibility. Thanks a lot!
Janet was a pleasure to work with! She came to our home to help us manage our dogs fear/phobia that was progressively getting worse. She had great ideas that we would have never thought of and helped us practice and refine some training techniques. She even helped us with our other dog and issues we hadn't planned on dealing with in that session. She answered all our questions and made sure we felt good about everything before she left. Highly recommend working with Janet who clearly loves animals and is good at what she does.
I truly love Christy’s skill and common sense in her training and techniques. Her simple training solution to my pups behavior with potty training, jumping, biting, and bolting out the front door have diminished with her easy daily training solutions and commands in just weeks. My dogs really enjoy her fun training games and her kind patients and loving nature. Christy works with you and your schedule and comes to your home to assist in the training process. Her prices are reasonable and affordable too! I highly recommended Christy for anyone with dog behavior or training needs.
Whit is truly a dog whisperer, but really she's talented with all animals! She considers them her "patients", and has the best of the best bed side manners. We still call on her for any questions and concerns we have with our pets, and can't wait for her to house sit for us again :) Thanks Whit for all you do.
