It's going well. The techniques Denise is teaching me and my puppy are working.
I highly recommend Kathy at Wilram Kennels for both dog training and boarding. She has the expertise to change a sloppy sit into a precise one, to mold a loose turn into a sharp one, to change a haphazard heel pattern into meticulous team work. Her experience and knowledge allows her to motivate the dogs to enjoy their work while they learn it correctly. The dogs come away from her sessions with confidence, and a keen desire to please. Her skill and proficiency allow her to train dogs of all levels, from the timid to the intense and powerful, from the beginning to the highest levels of training. Kathy is very capable with a high work ethic.
Robert has been helping train our German Shepherd Nuschka, since she was only 4 months old. At first we started with visits every fortnight to do basic training skills with her, which she picked up very fast. In between visits Robert gave us "homework" - training instructions to keep going with Nuschka until our next visit. We altered training with behavioral corrections, which within 5 minutes of Roberts training, Nuschka had already picked up and learnt what needed to be done. For eg. She started jumping our front fence and wandering the street early in the morning. After just 5 minutes of Roberts Training, Nuschka has not even considered jumping that fence again. Robert is amazing at what he does, he calls regularly to check up on how training is going and offers advice over the phone. He was very quick to offer guidance after a serious dog attack on Nuschka, which resulted in us having a better balanced dog after something so traumatic. Without Robert, I know our dog would never of had the opportunity to learn the things she has. Only today we started working on her search and rescue skills and will soon get into some protection work, which is a lot of fun for us, and Nuschka. The thing I absolutely love about Roberts training, is that he comes to your house, your own environment and he trains us, the humans, rather then just the dog. This gives us the skill set and confidence to continue to train future dogs to come, with the knowledge Robert has provided us with. Nuschka is now 8 months old, and we will continue to have training from Robert as there is always something new that can be taught! I happily refer Robert daily on our trips to the dog park when others comment on how amazing it is to have a dog listen to commands and act upon them. Robert is the real deal when it comes to training your dog and affordable!
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 am happy to recommend Darcy at Pawsitive Difference Dog Training. I picked out a two year old border collie last Christmas from the Humane Society, and he was definitely a wild crazy man! Totally over the top. Over this past year, I got him settled down on almost everything, but I was having trouble with him reacting to other dogs. It was down right embarrassing and limited where I could go with him. For trying to fix that one habit, I've been through four other trainers. I can now walk up to other dogs and have him be friendly 90% of the time. Darcy just corrected a couple of things I was doing and guaranteed results! Super happy!
Great experience. My dog is learning so much, as am I.
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 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 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 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!
