Carolyn was able to quickly identify that our dog was anxious, not aggressive and gave easy to follow techniques to help improve his overall behavior. In two short weeks, we've noticed a huge improvement in his behavior and he actually loves our nightly training sessions!
I hired Kim to help me train my young puppy whom I'd already somewhat spoiled. I was looking for help with puppy biting and jumping, setting rules and making him understand them and sticking to obedience training, which I find sorta boring. Kim was working the second she stepped through my door, showing me how to deal with the jumping and explaining my dog's body signals to me. She was funny and interesting to work with, not only told me what to do but WHY it works and went a step beyond what I'd gotten from trainers in dog class as far as connecting the pieces for me. She demoed every trick and technique she was showing me and made me feel like I can easily incorporate her tips into our daily life. I am very excited that I now have a more interesting approach to training my pup. I was a bit overwhelmed by all the information at the end of our time together and I think Kim could tell because she summed up what things I will need to work on with him. She gave me a clear plan of when I'd hear from her next so we could discuss challenges and progress and gave me options for working for her in the future if I chose to. I am definitely going to work with Kim again to see if I can improve the relationship between my dog and my boyfriend's dog and teach my pup how to nicely walk on a loose leash.
I have owned my dog for just over a year and over all is a good dog, however, she is a barker and is "aggressive" with other dogs and people who walk by. She was hard to walk on a leash due to her pulling and constant barking at other dogs, rabbits, leaves or anything moving for that matter. I have tried other training methods including classes, pinch collars, and books. ... nothing worked. Within 5 mins of Tim being here, not only was I confident but so was my dog. After our session I am seeing a calm and controlled dog and I am comfortable with my dog. Thank you Tim so much for your help. You are truly amazing and a real life dog whisperer. I look forward to working with you again.
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.
I love the dog that I got from Von der Stadtrand German Shepherds, grew up to be a very nice dog. I am amazed at how my dog loves to play with other dogs. It does not matter what size they are, she never overpowers them at all. If I decide on getting another German Shepherd I will definitely get it from Von der Stadtrand!
Rick is a great trainer he helped our dog abby to once again enjoy the dog park. She had a bad experience last year and became very aggressive with other dogs. Thanks to Rick she has started to trust again and I can take her to the park which she loves. Rick has become abby's best friend she could not wait to see him after the first session and every session after that. Rick is a great trainer and you can tell he loves his work and he loves and knows dogs. Great job Rick I
Sit Means Sit has been a really fun experience for Bentley and me. Jason has a superb way of getting your pooch to do anything without saying a word. The puppy training went great. Jason taught us how to curb the Bentley biting and terror time. We just received our training collar and we're already confident that this type of dog training is the right way to go.
Before we met Anna, my wife and I were ready to surrender our dog Zoey to the Washington County Humane Society. Zoey destroyed many things in our home to include bedsheets, comforters, sofa cushions, draperies, shoes, shirts, a recliner, four leashes and three pet harnesses, and that's not the complete list. Zoey was unable to walk with anything other then a 15' cable. She exhibited intense stress, fear, and anxiety. It was so bad that she would pull, tug, and bite on my carhartt jacket. ( thanks for making such a durable jacket carhartt! Lol). It was literally a tug a war every time we tried to take her out for exercise. Anna, discovered, and taught us so many valuable things about Zoey's condition that we were able to come up with a plan of how to work with in Zoey's comfort levels and now Zoey walks with a leash not a cable! She walks right next to my leg with plenty of slack in the leash, she does not exhibit any signs of anxiety anymore. I believe It is realistic to say Anna saved Zoey, not only from going back to the humane society but due to Anna's experience, education, and knowledge with dog psychology, dog behavior, and her understanding of the breeds; how they act and react in social situations, all this gave Zoey a better more calm and fulfilling life. I call Anna the "Saint of Dogs", and I think she has earned this title in the way she genuinely cares for and about animals and how they interact and coexist with humans. I strongly recommend Anna to everyone in need of dog obedience training and behavior modification training for their four legged friends. Sincerely, James & Aly Krieser
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.
Jennifer is a fantastic dog trainer! Very clear and concise during classes, and definitely has a great connection with all canines! My Fezzik is learning SO much so quickly! :)
Have not experienced Carols expertise on dog training yet, but thumbtack app wants me to rate anyways. Carol has gone out of her way to contact me for a phone converstion and has been very patient w my unavailabilty. As for thumbtacts rating i would say 3 stars which a 5 star waiting for the app to allow u to schedule these appointments threw the app making all the phone calls a unnessacary step. Hope to see u soon ped pet dog training !
Sarah worked with me and my 4 year old Yellow Lab on greeting at the door, leash pulling and not jumping on people. To be honest I didn't think much could be done at his age and because no matter what I tried couldn't get him to improve. Sarah was amazing and helped tremendously. She is very calm and patient and was able to give me very simple training tools to use to work with my Lab. And it worked! She clearly loves animals and they really respond well to her. Sarah was always on time, met with me and my dog before training began and clearly explained the process at this initial appointment. I would highly recommend Sarah.
I have known Tanya for about three years. She recently started her own dog training business. I have had the opportunity to see just how talented she is. A mutual friend adopted a young terrier, with some pretty serious aggression issues. I have actually been bitten by this dog. I was recently invited to sit in on one of this dog's training sessions and I have to say I was amazed at the changes! After several sessions with Tanya, I was able to walk up this young terrier and pet him-even while he was sitting next to his owner. This would have been impossible before Tanya started working with him. His owner reports that she can finally walk him without his trying to attack other dogs; another milestone for this young terrier. Tanya trains gently, firmly, and with kindness and patience. She never stops observing and reading the "body language" of the dogs she's working with; never letting the training become too stressful. I highly recommend Tanya's services to anyone who needs help with their dog's behavioral problems.
Worked with both me and my dog teaching us both what wad needed to be done, like he said... Its harder to train the owner than the dog most of the time... Thanks for your help, our dog is now a productive member of society!
Ellen is one of the most sought-after experts in the North Shore and surrounding suburbs! She is the go-to professional for any and all of my dog-related issues. She is unlike any trainer we've worked with -- she understands exactly what each individual dog needs and trains US how to transform our companions into best-behaved pets possible.
I did board and train with my girl Lucy. It was pricey but it was the best money I ever spent on my dog. I have been to 2 other trainers prior to meeting Kristi. She really helped me with Lucy wanting to drag me on walks and bark and lunge at other dogs and people. I now enjoy walks. If you want training from Canine Composure just bite the bullet and do it. Not only did she fix my dog but she also really helped me.
Jennifer is a great trainer, very insightful in the ways that dogs think and feel. My dog and I have attended training classes before, but there were a few behaviors I wanted to work on. Working one on one and at home is great, as there are less distractions than working in a large class. In all a very positive experience for my dog and I; he gets rewarded for his good behavior and I'm less stressed because he's doing what I want him to do! Jennifer's positive reenforcement methods are easy to learn and work great!
My experience thus far with Ruff Acdemy has been excellent. The trainers are compassionate and loving. They are driven and passionate about empowering dog owners; with the best training techniques, advice and help. The classes are fun and interactive. I have seen such growth my puppy in such short time. Rebekah has been readily available to me with questions and concerns that come up with my puppy. She is an amazing trainer. Lastly, her classes are very affordable and she has many different levels of training. I would highly recommend Ruff Academy to anyone looking to train their dog. You will love it!!!
I personally select the breedings of my Llewellin Setters to make sure I get the most birdy dog with natural abilities, high-prey drive, and that loves to hunt for the gun! These dogs are easy to train due to their intelligence and willingness to please! I sell their pups, and I also train them to be sold as started and finished gun dogs. These Setters are world-class hunting dogs and awesome family pets! I train the pointing breeds on all upland game birds to point, steady to wing, and shot and retrieve. I also hold classes for obedience training. I also like to give the dog owner hints and ideas to help prep their pup a little, before coming here for formal training which helps the dog greatly. I don't train for forced retrieve; it's all natural. Using a natural retrieve method, I like to have the owner do some play retrieve in their hallway when the pup is young. The dog needs to know his or her name, and be here before formal training.
