"
is AMAZING!
knows dogs and dog behavior. She knows the best method for you and your dog to learn how to live happily" together. And, during these three experiences, I learned that in addition to training the dog,
was training me the whole time (without me realizing it).
was exceptional at interacting with my dogs' different personalities and helping them learn appropriate behavior in a way that was fun and challenging for them. I have not yet found an issue that
was not able to address and correct. Her methods are easy to implement and the result is an obedient dog that retains their beautiful personality. Because of
's involvement with my dogs, I have been blessed with three amazing animals that are fun to hang out with, take out in public, and introduce them to new experiences.

"We hired
to do basic obedience training for our puppy. We have been using him for 4 months so far and have been pleased with the progress" he has made. He comes to our home each week at the appointed time for a 30 minute session. We chose to purchase the lifetime package, which means we can call him anytime in the future for additional training at not extra cost.

It was hard but good.
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
modeled how to communicate with our corgi and our dog became much better behaved and that helped the whole family.
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is sort of like a family therapist and looks at how each individual contributes to the problems. He was very directive and we needed that because were trying various strategies that we had gotten from Petsmart classes and from the internet and the situation was just escalating!

I put my young black lab
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
in for training October 25, 2014, I picked her up on November 10, 2014.
On my intake form I wrote the specific problems I was having with
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
(counter surfing, severe separation anxiety), which I presumed would be addressed, based on the description offered by
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
above.
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was the trainer who provided me the orientation at pickup. I was not impressed with what
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
had learned, not
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's unprofessional manner.
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
appeared extremely lethargic and though responsive to
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's instructions, she was slow to react, and he had to tell her "no" multiple times to get her to lie down or stay. Mind you, this was in an interior room, with no windows and no distractions, after more than 14 days of "intensive training". As
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and I were leaving,
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
told me that "the xanax should wear off in a day or so." I did not think that was appropriate.
After I took
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
home and went through the exercises with her, my dissatisfaction with the training provided intensified. I contacted
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, via Angies List, immediately. I requested a meeting with him. My request for this meeting was so that he could go through
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's lessons with her and tell me if what she knew is all she should know from his program.
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
responded promptly, and I met with him and his head trainer,
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
the following day. I was informed that
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's "joke" was just that, and that what
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
had learned was as they expected.
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
went through some exercised with
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and she responded better with him than with
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, but her reactions were delayed and he also had to correct her multiple times.
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
told me
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is stubborn.
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
offered to take
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
back into board & training for more work, but based on
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's lethargy when I retrieved her and
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's "joke" I did not feel comfortable leaving her there.
I worked with
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
multiple times/day, and had many weekly follow-up classes with
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. Each time, he commented that I shouldn't have to say "no" to her so much, and that she was a very stubborn labrador. I regularly asked what to do about the behavior I didn't like (stealing food from my childrens' hands, severe separation anxiety) and was given generalized ideas (keep in down stay --
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
wouldn't do that) . Nothing specific to address my major issues with her behavior.
Eventually I had to make the difficult decision to find
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
a new home- her uncorrected behavior was putting my children's lives at risk. Specifically,
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
had to go everywhere with use because she'd freak out and tear at her crate trying to get at me. Then, when we arrived at our destination, I had to physically restrain
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
while my 5yo twins exited the car without me so she wouldn't bolt out. This put my children at risk- them out of the car and me in the car.
I wrote via Angies List to
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
before I placed
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
in a rescue group, asking for a refund. This was 1/1/15.
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
responded 1/6 that I should contact
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
at the Garland office regarding my problems.
I emailed
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
via their website, and didn't get a response.
I surrendered
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to rescue 1/16/15 and wrote to
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
via Angies' List requesting a refund again.
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
responded with
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's email address.
Today (1/26) I rec'd this email from
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
:
Hi
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, We are sorry that things did not work out with
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
. We do not issue refunds for training. We guarantee the dog will know the basic obedience commands on leash. We have extended free lessons to the rescue that took
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
in. While she stayed with us for a few days, we worked her. She did all the commands very well and played in the day care with no problems with other dogs. Sincerely,
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked

I do not believe
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
trained my dog as advertised, and am unable to get a refund. I will not recommend
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
.

talk about Terrible customer service. If they treat people that way I would hate to see how they are in class training you and your dog! If you don't want to talk to people, post your class info on line and your prices.

Within a few weeks we have been able reach goals and find success training our boxer puppy with
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's help. He has been extremely helpful and direct about his goals. We are seeing great results from such a short time working with him. He definitely is very educated on what works and what does not. What we have learned is that consistency is the key and after that, it all falls into place. We would absolutely recommend his services and talents to anyone who is in need of a little help... We are definitely glad that we have crossed paths with him. He has changed our lives for sure!!!!

Wonderful experience for both me and dog. Course objectives were met.

Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked

Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
facility is large, clean, and well maintained.
Class involved 8 sessions with home exercises and practice each week. Individual assistance is provided if needed. I've used four other obedience training providers over the years and
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is by far the best. They are committed to positive outcomes for the dog.

We picked up a sad 2-year old dog from the shelter and introduced him to our small pack at home. He had been a stray and was exhibiting dominant actions against our other dogs and picking a few fights. We called
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
at
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to come out to our house and work with us and him.
We are about an hour north of
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, but she had no qualms about driving out to our house. She explained her techniques and what she wanted to attain, while also explaining why our new dog was doing the things he was doing. Within the span of an hour she had him dramatically calmer and more responsive to our requests. She also did a wonderful job of correcting some of our bad habits which served only to confuse or exacerbate the issues.
Three months later, we have elected to send Ranger to "camp" at the
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
facility. He will spend a couple of weeks there, working directly with
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to learn voice and hand commands and, hopefully, how to interact nicely with strange dogs. We have checked in on him a few times and are highly pleased with his progress.
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's training is
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
to the work performed by
Terryville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
and other natural approaches. She doesn't use treats or violence to obtain results and we love this about her!
