was wonderful with
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. I had just adopted my dog about a month prior to hiring
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, and he was definitely more nervous around men than women, however, he took to
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
right away.
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
took his time explaining why
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was acting the way he was, and showed us very easy ways to control his behavior. He was on time and extremely courteous and friendly. He spoke to myself, my daughter, and my mom each and showed all of us individually how to use the proper collar and leash to control

for when we take him for walks.

is a much more behaved puppy than previous to

to all my friends who need assistance in training their pets.

It went terribly. Her strategy is to work up to having the dog sit for one hour. She said once the dog could do that, she was trained. After weeks of no progress, she blamed me. I have since worked with a reputable trainer, who said that is not an effective way to train a dog. My dog is now trained without making her sit for an hour. How boring and ineffective for both of us! When I called Sheilar to ask for half my money back because she was supposed to provide two personal training sessions, she said she'd think about it, then never called me back or responded to email. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!

Awesome!!! First,
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is an amazing human being. He's awesome with both difficult people (I had to drag my family into the whole training process, which wasn't easy) and difficult dogs. He rehabilitates dogs that would otherwise be euthanized. He's literally a life saver! As for my experience, I couldn't have asked for more. You have to do most of the work and show up to the training sessions and it takes a while, but when guided by these expert trainers you WILL get results above and beyond what you were looking for.

, my crazy puppy, would have been run over by a car or eaten by coyotes if it wasn't for OLDT (he would bolt out the door anytime it was opened, and was an extremely high energy little devil - he also pulled so h****** the leash that he would injure me), and
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
would have had to go back to the horrible shelter because he was attacking my nephews. How are they now?
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
stays next to me most of the time and comes when called when he's not right next to me, and
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is a total sweetheart. He's even great with kids now, better than
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
(
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's great too, he just hates it when my 3 year old
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
sticks his finger in his nose, etc...). I literally walk both of them
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, even on busy roads (the sidewalk). I keep their e-collars on when on the walk, just in case, but when we do regular training with distractions (kids in the neighborhood, dogs walking by, etc...) I rarely have to zap them anymore. Everyone tells me how well behaved they are, and my Mom has been sabotaging the whole process this whole time (Mom's doing much better when she walks them, but she doesn't respond to training as well as the dogs ;). This happened despite her - thanks to
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
! By the way, lots of people have issues with using the e-collar, but it doesn't hurt the dogs. I've used it on myself, and one of my nephews used it on himself and he said it "tickled" and laughed and laughed while zapping himself. Dogs just plain don't like it, which is why it works. It does have a
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
setting that can hurt on naked skin (no physical signs, it just stings on the highest level), but it doesn't hurt on fur. I've only had to use the
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
setting on
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
when in emergency situations (e.g. he's about to run in front of a car...this was in the beginning, not now), and he's a maniac. Seriously, he's a maniac. If you have a normal dog and just want to teach your dog to sit, OLDT may be over priced for you. However, if you have an out of control dog who doesn't stick around long enough for praise and treats, or you have an aggressive dog, or a severely neurotic dog, you need to look no further than OLDT. They WILL help you. Also, the prices listed above are for training classes for the life of the dog. You can always take them back for refreshers. OLDT saved us and our dogs - literally!!

Over the last couple of months
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
has been working with our young Pit/Boxer,
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. We're about to have our last Basic Obedience session with
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
tomorrow afternoon.
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
has personally come to our home for each training session on time and well prepared and always gives a reminder call the day before.
I don't think we have the most challenging dog
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
has worked with, as their were no MAJOR issues to begin with, but we felt it was important to learn how to deal with a breed that requires some special attention and effort. we've learned a lot and
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
loves the visits. we've still got some tendencies we're trying to steer in the right direction and it will take time to get everything corrected, but we now feel like we have the tools to do so.
Thanks
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
.
From us,
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and all our future furry friends that will benefit from what you've shared.

When we first met
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
the confidence, experience and friendliness she exhibited won me over immediately. I had no experience with having a dog, much less training one.
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was so efficient in recognizing my reservations and inexperience as well as Frizbee's ability to learn. She trained me as well as Frizbee and the results showed on the very first visit! One of the things I admired most about her expertise is her ability to understand the psychology of animals and what their mannerisms and behavior mean in the "dog world" as well as the human world. This was such an important role for me as I've always had a fear of dogs. I no longer have that fear because now I know how dogs react in different situations and how to read their body language. This is absolutely an amazing thing to learn!
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was able to successfully meet every one of the goals I had set for training plus many more that I wasn't even aware of prior to our training sessions. I would recommend her for any/all training anyone could want. She is excellent in training skills and on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate her 100!! To top this off, she is funny, friendly, a pleasure to spend time with and a very nice person to know. By the way, I can now take my dog anywhere and know with absolute confidence he will be well behaved and accepted. What an accomplishment! Gaylen

's effort to help our situation amazed me. Within 2 minutes of talking with her we found out that she would be unable to physically train our dog, due to our location. She then spent over an hour on the phone with me offering training tips, training products and catalogues for us to review, and recommendations on where we could get help in our area, all free of charge. She had an immense knowledge of each category, and the information she gave us will be a big aid in moving forward with our dog's training.

takes the time to train my dog using only positive reinforcement. Although the sessions are one hour each, she typically spends longer than that at my house. She only counts the time she's working with the dog towards that one hour. When the dog needs a break, she gives him what he needs. All the animals love her and she is making fast progress with my dog. Highly recommended!

Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is incredibly patient, kind, and knowledgable. We have very skittish rescue dogs who are intelligent but never received training in their former homes. In just three visits our dogs are well on their way to being responsive, calm, good dog citizens.we signed up for very reasonably priced series of lessons, and we look forward to continued success.

Our 5 y/o female Border Collie had shown aggression on several occasions (particularly toward two friends of ours, joggers, and cyclists). One evening in our home she bit one of our guests. Besides were worried sick about our friend, we also feared the city we reside in would label our dog a "dangerous breed". At best she would have been quarantined at our cost for weeks with no human contact. At worst the city could have destroyed her.
I started researching dog behaviorists without much luck. I checked on Angie’s List and there were several listed. However, one I spoke with didn’t address the aggressive behavior to my satisfaction. Another never returned my call. I saw
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
’s listing and based on his great reviews I contacted him.
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
spent quite a bit of time on the phone with me as I explained our situation. Immediately he was confident he could correct the behavior. I asked about his fee and when he told me my jaw hit the floor! Without missing a beat
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
said “I charge this because I’m that good. You’ll notice a change in your dog after one session”. When my husband and I put the fee into perspective it was far less expensive than being sued by someone she may bite and having our baby put down. Also, as
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
pointed out our dog was not happy.
At our first session
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
established with her who was really the Alpha. She lost her mind trying to tell him “I’M the Alpha here”. She was growling, biting the chain link training collar, trying to bite
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
(which she didn’t come close to being able to.). This dog was even doing Alligator “death rolls” trying to get away from him! After about 10 minutes she’d finally had enough and submitted. By the end of the session he had her sitting and heeling without a verbal command. The training is also for us. Behaviors we did thinking we were calming her were actually telling her “You’re a good doggie for acting this way”. We are only four sessions into the training and our ‘baby’ is already a different dog. When we’re out for a walk we no longer have cross the street whenever someone walks toward us. Nor do we need to brace ourselves whenever she sees a cyclist coming. On our third session
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
told me our dog was one of the toughest cases he’s ever had. Further confirmation of his expertise as a dog trainer.
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is the real deal.

Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
came to our home and also met us at a park near to us to train our dog (and us) in non-aggressive leash-walking.
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked

taught us how to have clear communication with our dog, thus to alleviate her(and our) anxiety about what to do when other (scary,sometimes) dogs/situations may approach as we go for our daily walks. He told us and showed us the very specific moves and commands to use when training and walking our dog.
We feel very fortunate that
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was the person selected to be our trainer , because he is the consummate maestro at his work.
Upland Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, our dog is a happy pup now, and we are happy dog-folks.
