Dog Training reviews in San Diego

I am completely deaf without my hearing aids and needed a dog to alert me to door knocks, doorbells, people coming up from behind me, smoke alarms, etc. I was recently divorced so I did not want to wait on the long waiting list for a service dog obtained through the various agencies that provide low cost animals to people with disabilities. I also did not have a permanent home that they could inspect which is part of the process. So I chose to have a dog professionally trained knowing full well of the amount of training these dogs need. I chose ProTrain because I was able to get information via email and then meet at the Vista facility with the "big boss"..

. I loved how much care I saw given to the dogs in the facility.

chose a dog for me based on her personality. It took about a month for them to train her on some of the fine tuning a hearing dog needs and then lots of practice with me, the trainer (

, doesn't it? It's not for me! Hearing a doorbell? Well, sure dogs will bark their heads off when someone comes knocking on their owner's door. That doesn't work for me...I can't hear the bark without my hearing aid. So my dog has to alert me in other ways. And she does. Perfectly. I could not be happier. My only complaint would be the cost of days for boarding if

needs a refresher course. So far, she hasn't but I did have her boarded for a week. It cost me $30 per night, which is not above the average cost of boarding. So, it's fair....I would like to see that amount reduced for dogs that have been trained by ProTrain.

We toured the facility which was nice and clean and heard the sales pitch. Since we didn't want to sign up right then and there we had to pay a $50.00 consultation fee which we were not told about over the phone, also we did not get a receipt for the fee. We decided to hire another trainer that was twice the cost, because the dogs that the lady @ ProTrain showed us were not listening to her commands, she had to give the commands over and over again & one dog still ran into an adjoining yard. Also many of the dogs that were there seemed hyper aggressive....she told us that one had killed another dog, another bit a neighbor, etc. We knew right then that this was not a place to bring our dog.

knows each and every dog as a unique individual, this helps him to focus training tips where owners most need help. The training collar is so effective (feels like a buzz), I just wish it were more attractive.

The trainer picked up our dog and took him to their facility. We didn't see him for 2 weeks, but were updated with progress reports whenever we requested. The trainer brought him back and "trained" us, which is the hardest part. This is a very thorough, solid training system which works. They do use "negative" training techniques, but it works, and the dog and family is better for it.

is a true dog whisperer. He trained our English Mastiff to be an angel. He truly understands and knows dog psychology, which is as critical as anything when training. His methods work and stick. He is punctual and devoted. He even allows his students (dogs) to board with him at his home if the owners leave town. Highly recommended.

Not only did
San Diego Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
give great training, but he really cares about his dogs and gets to know each one well. He also offers free weekly classes at Mission Bay for all the folks who graduate his training. It's a way for him to connect with all his alumni and for the dogs to play with all their friends.

also offers boarding which you can count on, too.

I am extremely satisfied. I initially found them on the internet and sent them an e-mail on a sunday. Some one called me first thing back right away & was able to have
San Diego Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
come out that same day for a free consultation. I was able to start training the very next day. I am seeing immediate positive results. The training uses a collar that shocks the dog. At first it seemed harsh to me, but I felt the shock in my hand & it is not painful at all. We have a potential problem dog who was showing signs of aggression & never listened to anyone. We looked into different training options & this was the only one that worked for us. Since training has started he is like a new dog, well behaved & friendly to everyone. I would recommend this company to anyone. They have done wonders for our dog. The positive changes we are seeing in our dog is priceless.

The overall experience is that she gave a lot of great advice which allowed the dogs to improve themselves in a manner that benefits all involved. We greatly appreciated her.
