"
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.
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.
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.
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
Washington 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
Washington 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.
Washington 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
Washington 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
Washington 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.
Washington 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.
Washington 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
Washington Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
picks
Maverick up for boarding, he is always excited to see
Washington 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.
Washington Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
came to our rescue
through a referral and we have never regretted using him. He sets the
Washington 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
Washington 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
Washington Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
18, 2015 Maverick returned home after a week with
Washington 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
Washington Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
. Just what we learned that first day made a big difference!
Washington 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.
Washington 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.
Washington 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.
Washington 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
Washington Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
and fixed our cutie-girl!

The training went fine. My Trainer,
Washington Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
, was always on-time and worked well with the dogs. We made adequate progress with my dogs.
My reason for the poor grade is due what happened after my training sessions ended. I realized back in March 2015 that I had overpaid by $200 for the sessions. It is now
Washington Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
2015 and after 6 calls and 1 email, I have yet to recover my overpayment. The Admin that I spoke to in March quickly saw the error when I called the first time and said that she would take care it immediately. This was after offering to apply the over-payment as a credit to future services that I declined and requested that a reimbursement be issued.
Each subsequent phone call has resulted in this same Admin saying she is waiting for "approval" from the owner,
Washington Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
. I have requested to be put in contact with
Washington Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
directly but have been advised that she is not allowed to give his contact information out and that he is sooo busy that he hasn't had time to approve the reimbursement. I have requested for
Washington Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
to call me but of course that hasn't happened.
I'm incredibly disappointed with this company. The training service I received was fine, but the professionalism and customer service is severely lacking. As a result, I would NOT recommend any one use this service as they clearly do not care about maintaining long-term customer loyalty.

is also one smart cookie, as we had left our watering system set up wrong last summer. Our well pump would have burned out, but
