Sylvia is well worth her fee! I spent hundreds on puppy training and the classes were great for socializing my pup, but apparently, I'm the one that needed more one-on-one training. Sylvia gave me the confidence I needed to have expectations of my 9 mo. pit bull. Since the one hour spent with Sylvia, our training is exceeding my expectations, and I'm thrilled with our progress. I would highly recommend Sylvia. Beware however: Sylvia's "bedside manner" is strict and certainly not enabling! That's the only reason for 4 stars instead of 5. That said, however, I will definitely call her again when/if I need her. She is very experienced and knowledgeable.
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!!
Cindy was on time, and very friendly. She also was very flexible with times and days that worked best for us as a family. She not only provided training for the dogs, but also provided knowledge to us about how the mind of a dog works, and how to receive the best relationship with your dog as possible. She provided many different environments for our dog to encounter situations, and continually made sure we felt comfortable in the training. I would recommend Cindy with One-On-One Dog Training to anyone who would like an extremely friendly, flexible, and outstanding trainer for you and dog!
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.
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!
In my personal opinion Harmony at Home was an absolute pleasure to work with. Aside of their numerous certifications, Harmony at Home presented positive energy, very gentle humane (and also humorous) training methods, and detailed thorough instructions/guidelines. At the end of my pups first training session I saw immediate results! Almost a %100 turnaround! I will recommend Harmony at Home to anyone in need of a dog trainer!!! Thank You Harmony at Home!
Our experience with Latony's Dog Training so far has been exceptional! Very responsive, very professional and very compassionate toward dogs. During our initial meeting they focused on learning exactly what we are looking for in training our dog and are helping us to created a long-term plan. We can't wait to get started on this process!
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.
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.
My dog and I took a Therapy Dog training course from Helen, and it was wonderful -- we passed our evaluations and have been enjoying our visits with lots of great people! I appreciate how Helen can customize instructions for the individual needs of each person and his/her unique dog. We had a truly great class experience!
Jacqui was asked to jump into a very difficult situation and she was absolutely marvelous. I watched Jacqui train four dogs for a commercial shoot, in which, she had very little time to prepare and time was of the essence. It was a complete success! Jacqui has a confident demeanor and knows how to work with animals proficiently. With over 6 years of experience, I can't think of a better trainer for our commercial shoot. Jacqui is kind and respectful and was the lynchpin in ensuring the success of our shoot and ultimately our commercial spot. We could not have done it without her. If you need your dog trained, call her right now! You will not be disappointed. Thank you, Jacqui for all of your help! I will be calling you again, when my director tells me that our talent is a bunch of pooches. You rock!
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.
Carol at Northwest Dog Retreat is truly exceptional. I adopted a small dog from an animal shelter and was extremely overwhelmed in the beginning when I first began to discover some of his behavioral issues. As a first time dog owner, I was unsure how to deal with his fears and also my own. I knew I was not equipped to train a dog with fears and aggressions on my own and I was thankful to have been able to find Carol at Northwest Dog Retreat. Carol really took the time to listen to me and my concerns, and with her knowledge, help and guidance, Bruno has totally turned around and is more outgoing and expressive than ever. She is caring, intuitive and truly has a special way with animals. She has given me tools, tips and support through out the process and I am so grateful to have met her! Not only does she help with behavioral training in her own home and well as public arenas, she has boarding and the retreat location is beautiful! Plenty of space for dogs to run and play and enjoy. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Her true passion sets her apart from the others. Thank you Carol!
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!
Christy was wonderful and helped me with puppy training, my anxieties, and has helped us to learn to read our puppy's needs and what behaviors to expect at this age.
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 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.
I have worked with other dog trainers but Jeff goes so much further than most. He gave our border terrier the chance she needed and all our lives are so much the better for it.
The Dog Spot provides dog daycare, boarding and training to the families of Everett, Lynnwood and Snohomish county. Both owners are certified trainers and all our services are designed to provide positive interactions between dogs and humans alike. Whether your dog comes for daycare, a training class or a cozy weekend stay, they will be treated as one of the family!
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.
