I cannot say enough good things about Slyvia and her dog training skills!!! One visit with our unruly pup and I see a difference. She really understands dogs and how to stop any naughty habits. I would highly recommend her!
I have arranged a training session with Martha Norwalk. She is willing to travel and I am willing to pay her travel time because she is "the best" there is. She helped my husband and me with a rescue dog that serious issues about 14 years ago. It was our first rescue experience. There was no history available. Martha was wonderful and helped us understand the little fellow had neurological problems, probably related to severe abuse and the kindest thing we could do was to put him to sleep. That was not easy to hear, but she was right.The vet we consulted was in complete agreement with everything Marthashe had told us. He was not a happy little dog and never would be. She also discussed adoption of rescue dogs, where to look, questions to ask, choosing the right dog for our lifestyle and much more. She also offered free telephone consults when we did adopted another dog, because it was part of her training plan for follow-up questions and/or problems. We lived in Seattle at that time and have since relocated to Olympia, WA. We were thrilled to find her name on your list of recommended trainers and even more thrilled that she would travel from Monroe to Olympia. We never would have found her again if it hadn't been for thumbtack Thank you ! Rebecca
I love her energy, her positive approach and her professionalism. I love that she is able to tailor the training to my dog and my'son specific goals and needs.
Had an evaluation/training with my new dog I adopted from pet rescue. Nico had some possession issues with food dish and toys that we worked on. The trainer gave me good instructions on trust building and training specifics that would work with my dog. Also got additional tips that have helped in other aspects.
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!
We are so happy that we found Wendy to help us with our 100 pound mastiff mix. Before we started training, our dog pulled us everywhere, was nervous around other dogs and people, and we were afraid to take her anywhere off leash because she never came when called. After completing our training, we have a completely new dog! I can't believe that she will heel beside me off leash even with other people and dogs around us! I'm so happy that we can finally trust our dog and give her the freedom she deserves. Thanks, Wendy! You're the best!
My dog Kira and I have been training at the Zoom Room for over a year now. It has been great. When we first started Kira would bark at people that stopped in and had to train by herself because she was scared to be around other dogs. We started with private Agility 1 and then took a Calm Down class where she learned to train with other dogs. We do both Group and private agility. Private agility gives her confidence to be in the Group agility. Throughout the training Cheryl has been so great. Kira absolutely loves her. She really is knows what works and is a very positive trainer. Kira and I love training at Zoom Room!!!!!!!!!!
The trainer is clear with instructions and patient. She is clearly knowledgeable and has a love for dogs as well as training.
Thomas is an awesome dog trainer. I know that dog training isn't really 100% about the dog , it about teaching humans what dogs can do with enough attention and care. He is very direct and clear with his objectives for each class. He also has a lot of experience and wisdom that he loves to share with his students. His constructive criticism is so awesome. He doesn't just tell you not it do something but how to do it differently and better for your dog to understand. His knowledge of the dog is amazing. I was feeding my dog really cheep food and she was constantly sick and acting out. He showed me what dog food to get and WHY. He always backs up everything he says with facts, statistics and his personal life experiences. Outside of class we met up at the dog park a few times, so I could show him what I can do with my dog.
Karen did amazing work during the two weeks she had my dog for a board/train. My dog is a completely different dog while still being the super sweet dog that she was before.
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.
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!
Nikki is awesome! I have 2 dogs, one is older and the other is just under two years old. Neither is out of control or major nuisance, but there was room for improvement. The younger one is leery of people and a bit skittish. At our first meeting the young walked up to Nikki and allowed herself to be pet and she was at ease. We are just about a month into training and all is going well. The dogs have responded well to the training and I've seen significant improvement.
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!
I flew my dog out to these guys and they even made arrangements to pick him up from the airport! They treated me and my dog like their own family. Can’t get any better service than that.
Absolutely the best service and care for our home! Leah not only does a beautiful job, but is also a wonderful person. I cannot recommend her enough, we won't use anybody else!! Also our dogs adore her!
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 train little pups into mellow, mild-mannered mutts and teach pet owners to understand where their dog/puppy is coming from.
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.
I train dogs. I was in 4-H for 4 years training and showing dogs. I will work on obedience trying with your dog.
I am able to train dogs to standard behaviors. I have had experience with many dogs and love working with all breeds. I love working with young dogs and puppies especially. I am willing to travel to you when possible.
