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.
Martha spent the time to really understand our situation and dogs. Also her availability for questions after the lessons. I would highly recommend her services. Not only help in the training of our dogs, but information on nutrition as well. We feel with her help our dogs are on the way to being well trained,happy, and healthy.
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.
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.
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.
i am very good with dogs, i love animals, i not in experienced in dog 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.
We LOVE April, she has been a huge blessing with my Husbands Service Dog I'm Training, Charlie, we were introduced to April in November 2014 when Charlie our Labradoodle was just 12 weeks old. We have gone through basic obedience, sit, lay,stay etc and have been moving up the ladder to leash walking and now beginning off leash walking. She has a connection with animals that amazes me.
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!
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.
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!
Daphne was great working with my dog Murray and I on training. She is very patient and kind. She taught me to look for the cues Murray was giving when he was getting overwhelmed. Because of Daphne's training methods, Murray is now much more confident and able to walk well on a leash. Not only did Daphne teach Murray how to be confident, she taught me how to be a confident dog-owner. Thank you Daphne!
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!
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.
My work stands out from others because in the end you will have a happy well mannered dog. Your dog will be taught to respond to you not just me. If needed, I offer my phone for any problems that may arise after training.
I train dogs. I was in 4-H for 4 years training and showing dogs. I will work on obedience trying with your dog.
We are positive method training service but with multiple types of trainers
I train little pups into mellow, mild-mannered mutts and teach pet owners to understand where their dog/puppy is coming from.
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 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.
