Susie sets the bar for professional dog trainers. She is extremely knowledgeable and is an excellent communicator both with humans, dog and I must add cats! We've made amazing progress with our two new pups in just 24 hours. Susie gives you the skills necessary to feel confident about creating the best home environment for you and your pets.
Carolyn is a great and patient trainer. My dog is a work in progress but progress is what we are getting with Carolyn.
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 by far the best dog trainer we have encountered and we have been through plenty ! She has a unique and uncanny understanding of dogs and their behaviors. She has a quiet yet firm way of training, showing that you don't have to be harsh with your dog to train it. She does a pretty good job of training the owners too! She has also alerted us to health issues with our dog on 2 separate occaisions allowing us to get veterinarian care much sooner. If you are looking for a dog trainer go with Leslie! Couldn't recommend her more!
Cassidy is nothing short of a lifesaver. She comes over 5-6 times per week to let my dog out. She is always on time, reliable, and goes out of her way to make sure my pup is happy and well taken care of. I can not put in words how grateful I am to have her and the peace of mind I have at work knowing my dog is in the best care. She is amazing and highly recommended.
Lynn is an amazing dog trainer and she has changed our lives in only a few sessions:)
Sarah is a joy to work with. You can tell she truly loves dogs, and knows what she is doing. She has great experience, comes prepared, and doesn't have to stick to the same old same old if something in particular doesn't seem to be working. I am going in for a shoulder surgery in January, and I can trust my almost 100 pound puppy won't be pulling my arm off after I get it fixed. And this is only after 3 sessions! But as she says, you need to be willing to work with the dog and give the time it takes to train him/her. She is by far one of the best train the trainers I have ever gotten to work with.
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
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! :)
She did a great job, took really good care of my dog. I will be user her from now on.
I used Kay's service twice, after a friend recommended her to me as a good and reliable dog sitter. Kay stayed in my house, so she was not only a dog sitter, but also a house sitter, 2 for the price of 1, so to say. My little stubborn puppy loved Kay. I felt comfortable and happy, because Kay was sending me pictures several times a day and her comments were kind and with sense of humor. You can tell that she loves dogs! I would definitely recommend her services and will call her again when I need.
Cherie is amazing! Very responsive and has a great ability to work with any type of dog. I have a dog with high separation anxiety and she always does great with him. I never worry when my dogs are with her. I have also recommended several family members to her that have used her several times. You also get regular updates on your pets and she will always do spur of the moment photos and updates if you want them. My dogs have always been extremely tired by the time I pick them up, so I know they had a great time. I would highly recommend her!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
