Kristi did an outstanding job with dog training. My dog is a little stubborn and she took her time to work with her. I would definitely go back to her and refer her.
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!
Amazing experience so far! The trainer is the best. My dogs have been "trained" by other trainers - it was very negative and unsuccessful. I'm so thankful I found Sunset- very positive and extremely effective.
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.
Leslie is a very knowledgeable trainer. She is very outgoing has a good sense of best training method based on particular dog and it's personality. I have used trainers in past with other dogs and Leslie is by far the best trainer I have used. Leslie has turned my good dog to a great dog.
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
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
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!
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 !
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.
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.
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! :)
Victoria is one of the most dedicated dog trainers and breeders I know. She has so many top working dogs, If you have a breed that you would like to compete with,Victoria is the trainer, and breeder you would want to go to.
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!
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.
In the first year of his life, my Great Dane had worked his way through two dog trainers and five dog walkers. The latest trainer- a certified animal behaviorist, had recommended we put out 9 month old puppy on prozac. My husband and I were against the idea, but decided to have the conversation with our vet. He absolutely refused and then recommended we talk to Kyra. Fast forward two years. Thanks to Kyra (and Comfy K9s) we watched our misunderstood, misbehaved puppy grow into a respectful, loving, well behaved family member. When it comes to training, except to work. Kyra takes her role very seriously. She wont let you fail your dog. The number one thing that separates her from any other trainer, behaviorist, dog walker- I've worked with is her passion. She wants to help and she'll get it done any way it takes. She reads. She studies. She asks questions. The training is customized to your dogs individual needs. And, she truly cares about you and your dog. When everyone gave up on our dog, she was there. Shes reliable. I know I can call her anytime and Comfy K9s will take care of us. (They're actually on my emergency contact list!) Kyra is trustworthy. Shes genuine. She will make your dog shine.
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.
