"
-Josee clearly knows dogs, and follows the positive reinforcement method of dog training, which I agree with. One thing to note, although" it's listed as puppy and beginner, our two dogs were the only ones in the class of about 10 that were over a year old. For puppies, I would HIGHLY recommend this class, but for older dogs who may have a few, shall we say, quirks, finding something more tailored to them might make sense. One of our dogs is a rescue from a puppy mill (meaning that she was breeding puppies, not that we rescued her as a puppy), and she's just not ever going to pick up training as quickly or easily as other dogs. That said,
-Josee did do a good job of coming over and making suggestions that fit our situation. Her tips were helpful, and in general, I think it was good for our dogs to socialize with other dogs and dog owners in a class situation. To be perfectly honest, I scheduled the training mostly for my husband, who was under the impression that training isn't necessary, and in that regard, I was very pleased with the outcome. Our mill girl still doesn't really get the basic commands, but our other girl picked them up pretty quickly. I would absolutely recommend this class to anyone with a new puppy! For those in other situations, I might suggest contacting
-Josee for private lessons.

"They are all reliable, friendly, responsible, tolerant, helpful, and able to handle decisions. They are a great team, and the owner can handle all kinds of my eccentricities." No better pet care anywhere, even at a 24-hour animal hospital!

Dog Training reviews in Shakopee

Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
was AMAZING! She is so calm and so patient and great with the dogs. We have 3 dogs whose barking had become a problem. It got on my nerves and interrupted phone conversations with our clients. She had a great suggestion for stopping the barking and it worked perfectly the first time and ever since. The other issue we wanted to solve was their jumping on guests when they entered our house. we've made good progress on that, although we're not 100% there, largely because WE haven't practiced as much as we should. She also taught us a bunch of great "tricks" for exercising and working with them.
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
has a great way with dogs. Many of the other possible trainers we talked with wanted to use shock collars and dominance techniques which we didn't want.
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
understood that our boys are our family and we wanted them well treated. I highly recommend her and will continue to use her for "touch-up" training and techniques.

It went very well.
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
was prompt and knew what she was talking about. After we discussed my concerns-dog barking at strange dogs and people and concern re nipping-she observed my dog and came to the conclusion that he could probably be trained to stop inappropriate barking and no nipping. She gave me suggestions, and then modeled what I was to do. She then turned me loose, gave me her card, and told me to call if I had any problems or questions. There was no charge (evals are always free). I put her suggestions to use immediately and things have been going well.
I really liked that after the eval she thought I could handle the situation on my own and did not schedule unnecessary visits, and yet made me comfortable that I could call if I had problems or concerns. I was given the fee schedule during my first phone contact, and felt comfortable with the pricing.

Overall stay for my dogs went well. My two dogs stayed together in a large kennel and were fed and let out multiple times daily. The boys seemed happy when I picked them up!

If you care about getting the best care for your parrot, there is no better place than with
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
in Seattle. Not only in she very knowledgeable, she absolutely loves birds. She is a wonderful caretaker with amazing attention to detail and a kind and patient soul. You will not have to worry about your parrot when you board you loved one with
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
. She is everything her website says she is! My Galah Cockatoo, Junior boarded for a week. It was amazing not to have to feel anxiety that my parrot was not safe and sound.
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
is absolutley perfect in every way when it comes to caring for birds. I have never met anyone like her. She is excellent and I feel fortunate that she is opening up her home to parrots. It is a wonderful place to spend some time and meet
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
and her flock. I know that my Galah enjoyed his stay and suffered no lack of care or attention!

We have used
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
as a Trainer and boarding kennel since
January 2014. We had an out of controlrescue Black Labrador mix. Maverick was
about 6-7 months old with no discipline when he arrived. Extremely strong and strong willed.
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
had Maverick under control in less than three lessons. The lessons after that were for us to learn to control Maverick.
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
does an excellent job training dogs as well as owners.
He also conducts refresher courses as Maverick stays with him during our trips away from home. When
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
picks
Maverick up for boarding, he is always excited to see
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
and behaves impeccably no matter how long it has been between visits.

Having owned dogs for over 30 years we had never needed a trainer before.
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
came to our rescue
through a referral and we have never regretted using him. He sets the
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
up front with the dog in
it’s own territory. The dogs all seem to love him but know the limits.
Our three Pomeranians also received some training from
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
, which greatly improved their behavior.
He comes to your home and trains you as he trains the dog. He is always early for appointments and gives
full attention during all lessons. He has a large number of techniques in his repertoire to get your dog to be a loving and well-behaved member of the family.
As recently as
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
18, 2015 Maverick returned home after a week with
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
boarding him. As usual he returned home as his happy (now well behaved) self.
I could not recommend a better dog trainer.

Love, Love. Love Woofs trainers... They are all awesome!! They teach you how to really work with your dog. Now we are hooked on Agility training. What a great time to spend with your dog. They are so patient and help answer any questions, problems you might be having and it is always positive training. I recommend them to everyone I meet.

See above for some details - I would add that the obedience training is impressive and our dogs love going for training and play day care. Obedience classes when the dogs were very young were also excellent and enjoyable, plus convenient with evening hours. The staff are always patient, willing to give information when I pick them up from day or overnight boarding. There is a 'family' quality to the facility, and I would strongly recommend their services. No complaints.

I purposely waited to write my review.
Basically we saw major change in her on the first day - the dog I walked in the morning was not the same dog I walked that evening after we spent a few hours with
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
. Just what we learned that first day made a big difference!
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
came in and dealt with her immediately at the door with how she used to react to the doorbell. She spent time getting to know us and our schedules and then we went to work in our yard. We were prepared to go with whatever she thought was needed to break this behavior. She brought other dogs with her so she could see first hand a 'real life' situation with other dogs.
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
was excellent! She told us immediately what to do and what to stop allowing her to do, to limit her access in our home and so forth. We knew she needed more activity and learned that walks together were the best solution, rather than inside play. We started using a special collar immediately and our walks are much more enjoyable for all of us.
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
followed up with us that night & the next day to check on our progress as well. She gave us specific instructions on how to proceed on our own and what products we needed to be successful. She even came back again when we had what we needed and spent time to make sure we knew what we were doing with the collar on our walks. I've called her a few times with some training questions as well and she's been extremely helpful.
It's now more than a month later and we can definitely say, our dog is a very different dog than she was a month ago. Our girl is doing SO MUCH better now. She's not even reacting to rabbits and squirrels in the neighborhood any more. Our family & good friends have also been commenting on how good our girl is and how much she's changed, calmer - and they all loved her before too! She's always been a good girl basically.
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
believes she may have been taken from her mother too early. And God only knows what happened to her in her first 4 years of life. We're all much happier now and so thankful we found
Shakopee Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
and fixed our cutie-girl!
