Miss Susie was very knowledgeable and genuinely caring about both the puppy and the family. She offered a variety of hands on techniques that we are able to use from the very start. I would highly recommend her services and we will use her again as a resource for dog training.
We have only had 2 sessions but Carolyn has given us good tips to get started with our dog's training. She is very professional, prompt and calming with our dog and us.
We met with Tim Mader this evening for assessment and training of our dog Charlie. Both my wife and I were impressed with Tim's knowledge and his ability to "diagnose" the problem and give us advice and direction on the proper way to handle and/or correct our dog when he adversely reacts to situations. Charlie was termed a "difficult to adopt" dog that we adopted from the Humane Society. We do not have knowledge of Charlie's past, but as Tim worked with him he was able to explain to us why he thinks Charlie sometimes reacts to situations and why he (Charlie) is acting the way he does with strangers. He then demonstrated to us what we need to do to correct him. Tim is very personable, friendly, easy to talk to, and his directions were easily understood. Both my wife and I are very appreciative of his advice. We highly recommend Tim to anyone who has a "problem" dog and needs direction.
I would highly recommend using this service if you would like help training your dog. The trainer is awesome and made the experience fun for both our puppy and us. We learned so much and feel like it was just what we needed to get us off to a good start.
Here is a little history, we adopted a tree walker coonhound from a shelter in Tennessee and brought him home to Wisconsin. The first month was ok as we all got adjusted to each other. There were counter surfing, mouthing and dominance issues from the beginning. We knew we had a stubborn ALPHA, ALPHA male but we were working through it. The dog and I had an altercation over a rawhide where he became very aggressive and tried to bite me. From that day forward he would try to attack me unsolicited any time he saw me or heard my voice. It got so bad I would have to lock myself in a room so my wife could let him out. I am 6',1" tall and 220 lbs, this is the first time in my life with all the dogs I've owned that I was afraid of a dog. We talked to many behaviorist's whom all said we should just rehome the dog and had no answers for us. I was determined not to give up and make things work because I knew that this was a good dog deep down inside. That is when I was recommend to Shelly at "Hair of the dog that bit ya". I got a great feeling from her right away on the phone and was intrigued by her explanation of how she handles her training of dogs (it was a much different approach from what I was hearing from everyone else). This is a large breed hunting dog who is aggressive and she knew exactly how to handle it. She came out the very next morning to a situation where everyone in the house was uneasy and afraid of this dog who now was in total control of the situation. Long story short after two hours Shelly had broken the dog had him taking commands from both my wife and myself. We felt like we had our lives back and believe it or not the dog seemed happier that he now knew the pecking order. This was truly a Christmas miracle for my entire family. The picture attached is from the same day where that morning my dog wanted to kill me and what he was like by the afternoon! I cannot thank Shelly enough and I am so excited for our new life together with Bohannon. Todd & Shelly Bloom
As a first time dog owner I have learned that the process to a well behaved dog is the training of both the dog AND the owners. Our rescue one year old Birder Collie/Australian Shepard mix was pretty well behaved indoors and in our yard but had a very aggressive issue when meeting new digs and people. He could not be trusted to not bite either. After one session with Lynn and homework he was 100% better. After the second session I have little fear of having a problem. Buddy still needs some work however the change has been dramatic. Lynn comes to your home with written plans and homework assignments. Hire Lynn, you will not be disappointed. Jeff Wadsworth
I would highly recommend Julie to any of my friends (and have) that want to train their dogs. I like that she comes to your house. She was very helpful in giving me a different approach to training that is more my style of training. I have started using the techniques she has shown me in the past few days and my dog has shown improvements.
My 3 dogs look and smell great after getting groomed here. One of my dogs is part Schnauzer and we always get him a schnauzer cut, which isn't easy to do, I've been told. She did outstanding. I also have a yorkie who was dealing with an injury and she was able to work with him. After a bad experience at PetCo and having visited multiple dog grooming facilities, I am beyond pleased and satisfied with my experience at Deja Vu's K-9 Corner. I will be going back to get my dogs groomed here.
I was having issues with my boy Brunswick. I had taken him to a different dog training program. It just wasn't enough for my stubborn boy. I needed an extensive in-resident program. Leslie was able to get him in immediately. She thoroughly explained what she was going to do to help me and Brunswick. I thought if he learned only half of what she said I would be happy. He was a bit overweight. He slimmed down and looks great. Leslie made some recommendations to his diet and he loves it. It also saves me some money. The program was not just for him. It was also for me. I am becoming a better dog handler. I am more confident in what I can do with Brunswick. When I have questions, Leslie responds quickly. I am so glad I found The Educated Canine. I wish I had known about her a year ago.
Even though I didn't eventually need a walker, I was impressed with the prompt, polite, and accommodating responses from your employee. If I should need dog walking services in the future, I surely will contact you.
Brittany helped us with basic dog training but also tips to reduce reactivity. She's very personable and fun to work with. Our dog especially looked forward to our training sessions together
I care for pets' feedings and walking. I can also provide help with your shopping needs if you are starting out new or changing careers. I also have pets at home. I have three cats and one recently adopted dog.
I would love to help assist fellow dog owners to bridge that gap between master and pack member at an affordable price. To own and care for a dog is already expensive enough, so paying for a professional trainer is often discouraging and can lead to many outcomes including negative behavior in both dog and human, neglect, abandonment, stress in both dog and human etc. My goal is to eliminate anything blocking the natural connection between you and your canine companion.
