"When brought my dog back, he suddently told me that my dog is too skinny. He suspected that she has worms eventhough she is dewormed by" my vet every six months. When I called my vet to go over my dog's medical record, my vet said everything is fine and she would look at her on her next visit. My dog is not showing any sign of illness, she is active and eating well and her stools are normal. When I informed of this he got very belligerent and disrespectful so I fired him. This is the second time he has acted this way to me. He did this back in the summer and I stopped using him then but I gave him a second . He seems to think he knows more than the veterinarian and he does not like to be challenged and he doesn't seems to respect women very much. Lastly, he was nasty to me about my visual impairment, he said if the dog has worms it will show in her stool, and he said "I can't see well enough to examine her stool" and when I asked him if he was so worried about her stool, why didn't he check her stool and his response to me was he was too busy with other dogs and that it is not his job. My friends and family are very upset about this and they think he may be trying to fabricate a case against me to take my dog away from me because I am legally blind. They said, if he try to do such a thing, they will take legal actions against him.

" so lucky to have found to train our Vizsla puppy! As first time dog owners we did not know whatto look for in a" trainer. After a few sessions with our first trainer we knew that an electric collar was not the way we wanted to achieve basic obedience for our highly intelligent, energetic, and sensitive Vizsla. After just one session with we were so relieved to learn about his approach to training and just the overall positive energy he brought into our home. We are amazed with the progress we have made with our now 7 month old Vizsla and look forward to continue to channel his intelligence and energy in positive ways with guidance from . He is the real deal. He LOVES what he does and it is reflected in every session.

I have used ( ) for the past few years and have recommended him to other friends and acquaintances who have also been content with his serives. He has always been very attentive to our needs for our dogs and cat and I am picky. LOL We know when we are away that we can relax and have no ...More to worry. He keeps us posted with email,text and pictures.
The animals are very happy to see him and I also know with 's knowledge with being a trainer that the dogs are in good hands.
I have also used his boarding services for the dogs to have a full daytime stay date. His home is comfortable and there is plenty of room for the dogs to play and rest.
I highly recommend if you are looking for any of his services. Your animals will be in the right hands and will be happy you chose and his family to look after them.

We have three dogs under two (obviously not thought out) so we have two puppies, they were totally unruly in the house and impossible to walk, enter (after working with other individuals that didn't work) We have control after only three weeks. We are able to walk them without losing our arms, they are starting to listen ...More to us more and falling into place. If you are looking for a professional and bang for your Buck is your man! We are not done and plan on using through Advance training. We recommend him highly to anyone who will listen!!

My experience with has been overwhelmingly positive. I can't say enough good things about them. I have a difficult dog and the trainer, , has taught me new techniques to help transform my dog from a scared, barky dog to a confident, more sociable dog. We have trained in their store, outside a grocery ...More store where there are a lot of noises and smells, on a busy street with lots of traffic and noise, and around outdoor dining where there are other dogs out with their owners. has a gift for training. He uses positive reinforcement and focuses on rewarding progress rather than punishment. They have good quality snacks for dogs in their shop, including sweet potato snacks, flossies (my dog is crazy for them), and seafood snacks. I have trained with 3 other trainers in different cities and is by far the best trainer I have ever worked with. They call and confirm appointments, are flexible about reschedules and utterly professional.

is a BRILLIANT, DEDICATED and EFFECTIVE trainer. We have a 7 year old Border Collie Lab mix, , who has a ton of energy and tends to be territorial and aggressive (towards dogs, kids, people, etc). We have 2 other dogs in the house and are starting a family so we knew we needed to resolve ...More 's issues before bringing kids into the house. I had anxiety walking , taking him to the dog park, having people visit the house, etc. It was a real nightmare of a situation.
I did my research (including working with other trainers) before hiring . We spoke on the phone and decided on a time to meet at my house for a complementary visit. She arrived promptly and listened to our concerns and what we wanted to achieve with the training. made us feel comfortable and confident in her abilities. She also made us feel confident in OUR ability to properly carry through with the training. This was refreshing because other trainers we met with talked down to us and made us feel like idiots for the way we had been handling . I love her positive approach towards the dogs and their owners. She knows it's a team effort and that everyone has to have confidence in order to make this work. She spent over an hour at our home and even started training during the initial visit. We called her the next day and set up 6 lessons.
The first 4 lessons were at our house primarily concentrating on walking/heeling, the "place" command, constructive playtime (frisbee, fetch, etc) and front door etiquette (no more barking and lunging at people at the front door). All of her tips and techniques worked really well. The last 2 lessons were are the park (at our request). We had successfully mastered the walk so we wanted to start socializing and getting him familar with different setttings. It was great for him and for the first time we really enjoyed being in a public space with . It was really a good feeling.
During the 6 week period texted me at least 2 or 3 times during the week asking how was doing or emailing me other techniques we could use. She was completely accessible to us at all times. There was a weekend that got into a couple of scuffles with our older dog and this had never happened before. I texted on a Sunday and she offered to come to the house immediately to help us figure out what was going on. Now that's someone who loves what they do and their clients!! This was just one of the many instances that had impressed us with her high level of dedication.
After the 6 lessons we were 100% satisfied with 's progress. We were so pleased that we decided to ask to stay on for another 6 lessons to further 's training and focus on his socialization. To be honest, the 6 additional lessons were just as much for me as they were for . With each lesson I'm gaining more and more self-confidence with and my ability as a dog owner.
Take my advice and call if you are looking for a trainer. It will be a positive experience for everyone. :)
