This was a terrible business interaction! Right off the bat,
Porterville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
began to reinforce what a "bad fit" the dog and I were, and planting seeds that I would fail and that the dog would "need to be rehomed." This did nothing for my confidence, and I wish she could have spend half as much energy encouraging me instead of discouraging me and tearing down my self confidence.
At the same time that she reiterated how much I would fail this dog,
Porterville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
would collect money for the session and book the next one. In hindsight, if she thought I/we were so hopeless, why did she keep collecting money and booking the next sessions? To me, that seems just a little bit unethical: "You are really hopeless. That'll be $75. See you next Tuesday? Thanks!"
At the end of our final working session together,
Porterville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
advised me that
Porterville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
would have to be "boarded and trained" at their facility, but that as soon as she got out, I would fail her, so that after I got her trained with them, she would have to be rehomed, a conversation that took place while she collected more money from me.
To say I was disappointed with the experience is an understatement.
I still have

and we are doing fantastic, almost none of that progress due to what I was able to gain from training with Paramount. This endeavor was not money well-spent.
It seems

She gave me advice on how to work with the puppy in a kind and non-threatening manner. She is kind and patient and very informative about issues with dogs. You can always email her with questions or concerns.

Robina is very calm, very professional, very fun to work with, and really knows "dogs". When our older golden decided she would not let my husband and I both leave the house together by jumping up on us, very energetically, over and over (we are in our 70's, so this could have been a real problem for us), Robina came to our home for a 90 minute private meeting. She not only assisted us with how to stop that unwanted behavior, but provided us with a number of practical training tools to use with both of our dogs. we've also had a problem with that dog pulling constantly during walks. Robina's nature walks provided us with excellent practice and tips that really work. She takes extra time to work with each dog until the owner grasps an effective way to handle any issue. Now that we have a new puppy, we knew we wanted to get him under Robina's tutelage as soon as possible. She never makes an owner feel inept (even though we frequently feel that way ourselves!) and she never talks over our heads. She is patient to a fault and tries different tactics until the dog and owner are comfortable they "get it". She has also taken phone calls and emails from me when I needed extra help. Our dogs have always responded positively to her methods and we plan to use her many times over.

Everything went as they explained it would. The training takes time and commitment for real results. It's amazing how much these beautiful creatures want to please, and the consistency in training that we have learned has taught us how to have that consistency.

We are extremely happy with the results. Ziva is almost the perfect dog even though she is only 18 months old. She's great with other dogs and with kids. She is not totally trained off leash yet, but that has more to do with dogs in the neighborhood running loose. I don't want her chasing them and
Porterville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
into traffic. We can take her hiking through the woods and let the leash drag behind her and she stays right with us and doesn't attempt to run off even if she sees a deer.
I would recommend
Porterville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
K-9 Dog Training to everyone no matter what age your dog is or what the issue is.
Porterville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
can help make your dog a near perfect family member. He uses positive reinforcement techniques which builds the dog's self confidence and makes them eager to learn.

was very, very helpful. I have an 85lb extremely "reactive" goldendoodle named Buster. I was afraid to take him on walks because he would get overly excited whenever he saw another dog ... I could not control him or his excitement on leash. I knew he would not hurt another dog, but my neighbors were afraid my dog would attack their dog. Whenever Buster saw another dog, he would

, bark incessantly, jump up & twirl in the air and somehow position himself to land between my feet so I would

my balance ... He caused me to fall a few times. One time he lunged so hard I fell and hit the back of my head on the asphalt and had to get several staples. We tried choke collars and electric collars. I wasn't sure my 6 year old goldendoodle was trainable. I was pretty desperate for help. Thank goodness I found

taught me during our private lessons. I learned a lot from
Porterville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
.... honestly the two of them have made a huge difference. I would like to mention, before I called
Porterville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, I called another highly rated dog trainer on Angie's List ... he had a lot of positive reviews. His strategy is to train you and your dog in a single visit (one lesson - very expensive - that includes a special collar that is used for show dogs). I think he sensed my fear, desperation and disbelief that we could resolve the problem in a single visit. This seemed to upset him, and he dismissed me entirely. He told me he didn't think he could help me & Buster .... it was a huge let down. But in the end everything worked out very well. I highly recommend

. I don't think I could have found better trainers.
