I had rescued two dogs in

, and really needed help with the adjustment. Fortunately there were three or four trainers present for every class -- and they all provided wonderful individual advice and encouragement all along the way. The stress is on gently guiding

into the desired behaviors, and the approach mostly worked very well with my high energy dogs. I would highly recommend the class to most anyone starting out with a new dog -- no matter the dog's age. And I'm really glad I learned about the organization on Angie's List!

I met the gentleman and scheduled the 8 lessons for the dog training. He came to my house and conducted the first lesson as we agreed. For all the other scheduled lessons he has not showed up, contacted me, or responded to any of my texts, calls, or emails.

Very well. We were hoping to introduce our dog to the facility on a gradual basis before boarding her for the first time. Everyone was great! So much better than being locked in a cage or kennel! Will definitely be back!

I think it went very well, I

’t have much experience with dog training but it seemed to go okay. It is still ongoing. It is an eight week training course for that amount. They are very good. It is kind of interesting some of the older dogs that did the classes there came and had birthday hats on, it was really cute and came to say happy birthday to the dog trainer that was teaching the class. That just kind of shows you that people really like the trainer and what he did and the dog recently made some improvements, it was kind of nice to see. I was so surprised. It really was fun to see and the nice thing about it was that they were all behaving, they were all very good and that means that he did his job very well. The price is on par with everyone else and I looked around and they are pretty competitive. People in there were really helpful, I didn’t know what to do and they were excellent with that.

Our Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier attended Neumans 8 week training. We had a great experience and

came home a new dog. He was able to go for walks with out tugging, he was mastering basic commands and knew his 'place'. A perk is that when we travel, we can have

boarded at Neumans and also have training reinforced. This reinforcement is excellent and we know he is safe. We would recommend him to anyone looking for exceptional training.

Dog board and train dropout. She didn't even tell me my dog wasn't eating or drinking until 5 days after his pick up, when he got sick. All
Westwego Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was worried about was the remainder of her fees that hadn't been paid, which she constantly mentioned. She taught my dog basically nothing. She was very unprofessional and money hungry. When my dog was dropped back off at my house i was given no instructions on furthering the training she had already done. When i called asking about the training she was able to do in the 5 days that he was there it was like talking to a uneducated child that had no idea what she was doing. When pressing for answers it was like, lights out but nobody home. If you want your dog cared for, trained, and loved DO NOT BRING YOUR DOG HERE. EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL AND UNRELIABLE!
