Sylvia is a true dog whisperer and she has saved our family many times. The first time I was almost in tears because my puppies were fighting all the time and I was afraid I might have to re-home one of them. She calmly told me that all I needed to do was learn how to be the pack leader. She was right! Once the dogs knew my husband and I were in charge, they no longer fought each other for dominance. The next time was when my husband was away in the army and I became too sick to take care of my dogs. My dogs are my babies and I'm so grateful that Sylvia was there to watch over them. She took care of them as if they were her own until I got better and my husband came home. They were so happy and healthy and vibrant when we picked them up. Sylvia has also taught me how to do service dog training with my dog, Ike. Sylvia loves all creatures, human or animal, and has a big heart. She especially reaches out to help veterans and the disabled. There is no one else I would trust more with my family, you can trust her with yours.
We called Martha because our dogs are dog aggressive. Martha worked with both of our dogs with instant results, teaching us how to walk them without pulling on the leash and to ignore the distraction of other barking or aggressive dogs. Everything was tape recorded for us to replay, should we forget. Our Akita has had a "dangerous dog" declaration and she helped us by giving us the name of an animal lawyer, and a reputable person who can give us an evaluation of our dog.
Ada was prompt in responding to my initial request for dog trainers near my home and after discussing what needs to be accomplished explained what she believed would be necessary and how much it would cost giving me the opportunity to talk it over with my daughter (the dog's real owner) who will get back with me tomorrow about the degree of commitment to help pay for the service. Ada kindly accepted the delay and pleasantly offered the suggestion that if it didn't work out just now she would be happy to help whenever we were ready. So, I already know we are going to hire her because she is so flexible and considerate regarding our circumstances and needs.
Cindy Wilson is an excellent dog trainer. She even trained my dog to ring the bill to let me know when he wants to go out. I still call her till this day when I have dog training questions. Even though she's now in another state. I highly recommend her services.
Anne is fantastic! If you are looking for any kind of behavior issues such as obsessive barking, anxiety, dog aggression and the like, she is the best trainer to go for and at a great price! My rescued pitbull is aggressive towards other dogs and Anne started by observing his behavior on a walk around my house. She carefully listened to my stories about when dog fights would happen. My pitbull gave no sign of attack until after latching on. Later, Anne asked any family members to bring their dog to see how mine would react if properly introduced. It is always moment to moment training, meaning: Anne will instruct me to walk by the other dog or let my dog see another and when he is calm, he can proceed to the next step. ONLY after we have achieved a level a calmness and proper body language will the dogs go closer to one another. And it is always at YOUR comfort level. If you think your dog will react, you can take precautions or if your dog is in the same room as another, Anne does not push for a greeting if it doesn't seem to be happening. I would highly recommend for anyone.
Wendy is the best dog trainer by far in this area. Totally legit and amazing what she can do for your dog. I guarantee you won't be disappointed and you will be seriously amazed at the results. Worth every penny!!!
In the past 15 years we have used several dog trainers and Thomas is by far the most knowledgable in terms of understanding dog psychology. He takes a training approach much like the parenting approach that I take with my children. The dogs are able to understand what you want from them without the need to be domineering or requiring any type of negative reinforcement. He has been able to answer and address all of my questions/issues and explain a solution in a very concise and pragmatic way!
The trainer is clear with instructions and patient. She is clearly knowledgeable and has a love for dogs as well as training.
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 have been working with April for a little over a month to train our rescue dog Milo. April is easy to work with and our dog responds positively to her. I like how she has goals for us to work on, but also addresses any issues we have with Milo during the week. I also appreciate that she comes to our house, so we can work on issues specific to our environment. I highly recommend April if you are looking for a dog (or people) trainer.
OMG- GREAT! Cheryl was the third trainer for my dog. 1st trainer: Said my dog was aggressive and would not work with him until put in 3 weeks of work. 2nd trainer: said my dog was reactive, was willing to work with me, however was on travel for 6 weeks. Cheryl: day one (eval) was growled at by my dog- but was super duper patience and was able to PET him by the end of the session! We started with 4 personal sessions for me and my dog (to keep everyone safe and be smart). Two session in - I was able to move to classes! We are have passed obedience level 1 and are now on to obedience 2 and agility and still WOW! I have an awesome dog that I am proud of. Also, I am a better paw-rent for the training i have received. I shopped around for trainer-- learn from me and go with the Zoom Room!!
Alex is the dog whisperer! He was able to make changes and teach me what to do all in the first visit! There is something special that he is able to accomplish and the puppies take to immediately! I highly recommend you to give Alex a call for all your puppy needs!
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!
Isis walks our two Saint Bernards twice a week for us. She is always there, communicates if there will be a change in time or a change in dates. She is accommodating when we have changes. My dogs LOVE Isis and view her as a treat to their week. Isis also helps us be better doggie parents with training tips. One of our Saints is aggressive to smaller dogs and some people and Isis always has her under control and she is behaving better when we walk her. I can not say enough good things about her, we have used her services for over a year now and will continue to do so till our dogs pass away.
Karen has been amazing with our little dog bee. We never had a dog we had to take to the groomers and when we got Bee we were baffled by the prices and the horrible hair cuts we were getting!!! So glad Karen came to the rescue, she understands we do not live close and she works well with our schedule! We will not go anywhere else ❤️
It was obvious from the first visit that Daphne knew what she was doing and is also very much a dog person. We saw immediate results in our dogs behavior, and they seemed to enjoy the training sessions as well. After 4 visits, we feel confidant that the training and education provided will allow us to easily continue the work to achieve the full results we want. Daphne was also very pleasant to work with, and provided a great deal of additional material for our education as well.
We have a 4 year old German Shepherd Dog, Lila, that is a perpetual puppy--extremely high energy and playful. We were having a lot of issues while out walking or hiking with her because of constant pulling and leash reactivity around other dogs. We found Julie and were immediately impressed with her resume of handling large dogs (Malamutes) and training them through positive reinforcement. Julie has been full of valuable tips and strategies that have focused on positive reinforcement, repetition, and the gradual increase of distractions when training. After several sessions and lots of practice in the neighborhood, we are really starting to see results. Taking Lila out for a stroll is now much more pleasant and manageable. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Julie and would absolutely recommend her!
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 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.
Phenomenal trainer! Great at helping animals with behavioral problems or if you just want to teach your dog to sit and stay he can do that too. He has been able to make aggressive animals adoptable and trained many animals for television roles.
I am a certified dog trainer. I am a graduate of the animal behavioral college. I have had my own business since 2007.
