It was very helpful to the owner of the dog being trained.
I do everything with a smile, it's the customers satisfaction that really matters.
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 am a certified dog trainer (through the APDT) with a Master's degree in Animal Behavior. I offer basic dog training and behavior modification for dogs with behavior problems (aggression, barking, difficulty walking, house training, crate training, and more). I work closely with clients to help solidify training techniques and encourage more acceptable behaviors from their dogs. I primarily focus on canine-friendly methods.
We tend to use a mix between force free and traditional training. We train service dogs, but also train basic obedience for non service dogs.
Ruth is highly professional and extremely knowledgeable on dog training theory, behavioral traits and most importantly, she is very adept at putting her experience into practice with training drills and hands-on exercises during our sessions.
I have been working at a dog wash for the past 5 years,my services offered includes a bath for your dog, dog walking, and dog sitting.

You and your dog are always #1! Private behavior consultations are available to address specific concerns, behavior problems, or aggression issues. Day training is geared towards busy pet parents; drop your dog off for the day or schedule in-home training during the work day. Your dog will benefit from one-on-one training while you are hard at work! Puppy University is a fast-tracked classroom curriculum. Your dog or puppy stays with us for 2, 3, or 4 weeks and learns as much as (or more than) a dog in a typical 6- to 8-week group class. Private, in-home, follow-up sessions are included in Puppy University tuition to help you get the most of your dog's training. Work day pet sitting gives your dog a potty break and a chance to stretch his or her legs while you are at work. Out-of-town pet sitting provides peace of mind to pet parents who are going out of town. With three different packages to choose from, you can be sure we have an option to fit your specific situation. Wags-N-Woofs also offers boarding, for those times when leaving Fido and Fluffy at home isn't an option. Pets stay in our home, not in a sterile, cold kennel environment. We only take 1 to 3 boarders at a time, so your dog will always be in a fun, relaxed setting.

I graduated from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point in 2007 with a major in psychology, and part of that was taking canine psychology one and two with my professor who is considered the dog whisperer of the Midwest. I was paid up to $500 per hour. I have looked up to this man and he is my role model in life, as I have never met a man as interested and passionate about dogs as I am, along with the knowledge he has given me, as dogs are my life. I shadowed him for over a year and bought my German Shepherd Mya, my baby girl who is 5, which I trained myself along with doing agility courses and other work with her and other dogs I have trained. I have helped in changing behavior in dogs and modifying it for specific needs along with teaching you training skills, working with you and your dog to connect and have them learn not just from myself but rather from you, their owner, with my guidance. You can contact me if you do have a question and need my help as I'm happy to work with you and your companion.
K911 provides an accelerated learning program for large/medium breeds of all ages, where your dog is boarded, trained in obedience, socialized, vigorously exercised and groomed -- all for a price that's comparable to most kennels. We offer both a 1-week program and a 2-week program. You will receive a YouTube video of your dog working with a master trainer and a canine behaviorist, Brad Wolfert, along with a detailed report of its progress that includes individualized instructions to keep your dog behaving once he's/she's home. We offer free pickup and drop-off anywhere in SE Wisconsin and a complimentary 2-hour in-home training session when he or she returned. Your pooch will run and play like a dog on our over 15 acres of land located next to the pristine Terry Andrae State Park in Sheboygan, WI, where he or she can swim and enjoy the beach of Lake Michigan. At the same time, your dog will be strictly trained in house manners, dog socialization, agility, obedience, hand signals, and perfect heeling and given strong leadership that will help even the most unruly dogs overcome their challenges -- even dog-on-dog aggression. Your pups' nails will be clipped, paw fur trimmed, and teeth brushed; they'll be bathed, and lastly de-shedded, so they come home looking, smelling and acting better than before. Brad Wolfert of K911 is a seasoned dog handler with over a decade of experience and specializes in large/medium breeds. He also trains service dogs for disabled individuals and military veterans. He believes in a practical, no-nonsense approach that gives positive results and has a unique style that's unlike most trainers you'll find today. His love for dogs is what drives him to be successful, and his passion for training is apparent to all who know him.
Taking care of animals and people is just something I was born to do!
Dogs are my pride and joy. They need love, direction and care. My purpose is to help them live long and have healthy lives.
I am my own person and do other things as well. The basic things I care for are pets (any animals). The other things I do include taking care of cleaning around the house/home. I have very flexible hours. Depending on the kind of animal, I do basic training for rabbits, dogs, cats, and guinea pigs.
