I would like to start by saying, my husband and I were unsure of how the training was going to go. We tried a couple other trainers and it didn't end well, but working with Diana has been AWESOME!!! She kept me very informed (daily) on the progress of my puppy. She sent many emails, videos, texts, calls.. When we dropped off our dog he was crazy hipper, but when we went up to see how everything was going, only after 1 week, we saw such a change. Diana is wonderful and a great trainer!!! We highly recommend her to anyone! (and her family is awesome too) They all made us feel comfortable and confident leaving our dog for the training. Thank you Diana!!! Ryan & Shirley Aurora, IL
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.
Tim helped us a lot,answered all our questions,and showed us how,to handle certain things,we recommend him,to others.We will be calling him again.
I am offering the following services: * Pet Sitting * Dog Walking * Obedience Training (including board and train programs) * Natural Dog Treats I've decided to leave Corporate America and follow my passion and work with dogs full-time.

I look forward to developing many long lasting relationships with the hounds and hound owners in the near future. I have 30 years experience training Field Champion Pointing Dogs. For the last year I've been volunteering at the Humane Society and Shadowing to become a fill-in instructor. I recently completed my 300 hours to reach eligibility to be a certified training professional (CPDT-KA). I will be sitting to take the certification exam this fall. My most recent Dog is a Shiba inu, Luna, that is 4 months old. Luna is doing a board and train with our family and completing her basic obedience.

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.
Training your dog does not have to be a lesson in frustration! Does your pet have some unacceptable behaviors that you need help modifying, but you just can't seem to find the right method of getting through? All too frequently, we hear new students tell us they have "tried everything" (including other trainers), and nothing has worked. Sadly, many times, things are only worse now because methods were too harsh and left everyone feeling frustrated and hopeless. Julie is a true behaviorist and she specializes in those hard-to-train cases by using science-based techniques that don't create fear and mistrust but rather develop a relationship based on a clear communication. Due to her force-free methods and holistic approach to behavior modification, she is referred to by seven animal hospitals and numerous training facilities, competes with her own dogs and works very closely as a volunteer and referral source for Northcentral Maltese Rescue and Doberman Rescue Alliance of Wisconsin. Allow us to help you get on the path to a better training relationship. We focus on fun obedience training and happily obeying dogs. We'll help you build a lifelong training relationship with your pet using positive and motivational techniques, with an emphasis on relationship-based dog training so that you don't always have to rely on that leash. By using classical and operant conditioning, we create stronger bonds that are reliable and lifelong. Your dog will learn how to control himself so you don't have to. Sadly, emergencies rarely happen when the leash is attached, and as a certified veterinary technician for a local veterinary hospital, Julie Westphal, our owner, has never seen a hit-by-car emergency where the dog has had the leash attached. Let's get you started on your dog's "naked obedience" today! We have over 12 years of experience with the following: * Human and dog-related aggression modification * Anxiety modification * Resolving storm phobias * All stages of obedience training * Competition readiness * New puppy temperament testing and training * Tracking * Tricks and more We also offer the following: * Vacation boarding school (lodge and learn program) * Mini-group sessions * Full-length in-home courses * Field trips * Run-through critiques Julie proudly instructs classes at various locations in SE Wisconsin and also holds seminars for puppy through competition obedience, modifying behavioral concerns, and even tricks. In addition, Julie has been giving demonstrations, holding local church group seminars and otherwise educating others as often as possible. Her life's mantra is: changing the world one pet at a time. Let us help you teach your pet some new behaviors and modify old or unwanted ones, and all the while, strengthening your relationship and building trust. Earn applause with Awesome Paws!
