Denise helped us with our 12 week old miniature schnauzer. She gave us some great ideas for establishing leadership and training concepts to work on with him. We've already noticed a big difference in our relationship with him.
I took private dog obedience lessons from Kathy. I found her to be very knowledgeable about the subject. She was very helpful to me and my dog. She is an excellent problem solver. My only reason for not training with her at this time is distance. I hope to train with her again.
Robert helped us in a few short non-expensive sessions by giving us a glimpse of his limitless knowledge about our dog. With his help we were able to work with our dog to help him overcome his separation anxiety and obedience issues. Robert also helped us to enjoy walks instead of having to pull our dog away from distractions all the time.
Really great information for myself and my family regarding dealing with our newly adopted dog. Training him will be a process but she has instilled in us a confidence that he (and we) will succeed! We are excited to continue our training/learning with Jessica!
I contacted Darcy, after hearing about her from a friend, to see if my dog was too old to start learning; she is 8. Darcy said no dog is too old or too young. We signed up for basic obedience. Darcy and her husband Rick are wonderful people. The were always early to class, stayed late, answered any questions, provided different items to try (ex: leashes, collars, training treats for the dogs, etc). Darcy is very professional, years of experience, sweet, makes class fun for both dog and person, she believes in positive reinforcement only, never negative. I love her classes! After we passed obedience, she had a party for the people and the dogs. I then signed up for Reactive no more. With the colder months coming on....she is very flexible with classes, when and where we meet, etc. I would highly recommend Darcy to anyone with a dog!!! :)
Chaun is the most incredible trainer. From the very beginning she calmed our worries about our dog's behaviors that were troubling us by teaching us the reasons for her behavior. Her approach to training is to educate you about the reason dogs think and act the way they do, and then following that with a logical and simple method to work with the dog's mind instead of against it. Our Gracie responded to her immediately and we were shocked to see instant changes that we never thought possible. Where would we be without our Chaun?! Every session we learn something new, and her knowledge and contagious positive attitude keeps us looking forward to every moment we have with her.
Jean and her partner Nancy have been more than helpful with our pet issues. They are prompt and professional. They are very knowledgable and effective in their training of us and our dogs. I have recommended them to others in my community.
I love ValorK9. Best trainer I have found in Spokane. Truly a joy to work with, great with dogs and exceptional at training me (the owner) to properly work with them! We have done canine good citizen, obedience, herding, rally and her board and train program when the pup was younger. They also offer boarding to clients. Great facility run by great people.
I hired Nick to find a dog as a diabetic alert dog. He interviewed many breeders and came home with the puppy he thought would have the perfect temperament for the task. Amazing. This man could see in a puppy what could be a life saving animal. With some training and a little "boot camp" my Cooper has turned out to be more then an alert dog but the most precious gift in my life. I refer people to Nick as easy as breathing. He is gifted beyond belief. Debra Brocato, Portland, OR
I love the fact that we have an indoor option for bad weather and outdoor big grassy area in good weather. The instructors are very knowledgeable about obedience as well as behaviors, and they always have tips that help out a ton with our training and home life. We had a 5 week course with about 8 dogs in our class. There were 2 instructors that helped out everyone in class. I learned so much and had lots of fun and loved the socialization for my puppy. I would highly recommend this class to anyone that needs to train their dog.
Tao Service Dogs, Charlie Bales Trainer is currently training my Service Dog Jack. Jack is a Standard Poodle who came to me earlier this year. Charlie has been training Jack 5 days a week since March 2013. Combined with classes outside of Charlie's training (but at her direction), Jack has grown into a confident dog well on his way to performing tasks I need help with. Tao Service Dogs training starts at the basic learning levels and progresses through public access and task based skills. Tao Service Dogs uses positive reward training, which helps my partner gain confidence and skills, knowledge and experience. I highly recommend Tao Service Dogs for anyone looking for positive reward, respectful and effective training for their Service Partners!
