When I contacted to inquire about training
Grand Prairie Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was very responsive and really pursued my business. However once the meet and
Grand Prairie Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was completed and I purchased a "puppy package" it was very difficult to schedule a training time, We would schedule a time and then she would cancel at the last minute, or arrive very late. The package consisted of 5+ training sessions with the promise she would stick with us until the puppy was trained.
Grand Prairie Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
did work our puppy on 2 occasions and seemed to make some progress, however cancelation, after cancelation and rushing home with my preschooler and infant to meet with a trainer that did not arrive was too much and we agreed to terminate our relationship. A refund of $120 was agreed upon. However after months of phone, texting and email I finally received a return of $60. I tried again for several more months but never received any additional funds.

Ramellah is firm and yet very responsive to the owner's sensibilities. She pushed us to try new things, but not to a point that was too hard or fast for us to accept. The training and tools she suggested have transformed our relationship with the dog. I had to recognize that the dog needed a lot more exercise than he was getting from running around in the back yard. So I instituted two long walks a day--at first, reluctantly, and now I look forward to them too. We also got him a treadmill. Ramellah taught him how to use it...I am not sure I could have done that. But now he loves it and frequently asks to get on it. Our problems with his destruction of things, and his incessant barking in the back yard are largely over. The new approach requires vigilance and consistency on our part, and has been very rewarding. I highly recommend Ramellah.

We highly recommend this company. The owner is very knowledgeable, professional and patient. He is great with your dog and his customer service is outstanding. He will answer as many questions as you have and stand behind his product. This company is very responsive and their follow through is impeccable. We can't say enough good things about the wonderful experience we've had in working with this company.

You can instantly tell that

loves dogs and is extremely comfortable around them. She is great at making owners feel comfortable too! Her techniques are NOT a quick fix - you're not going to have 1 or 2 sessions and magically have a perfect dog.

gives you the tools to communicate and form a trusting relationship with your pet, and then it's up to you to do the work on a daily basis and be consistent. It's been about 2 months since our last training session, and Star is doing much better. She can now be within about 10 feet of another dog without flipping out....something that was impossible for her before. She is my running
Grand Prairie Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, and she used to freak out and pull me over if we even saw another dog; now we can see a dog across the street and she will look but keep moving and she no longer pulls on her leash. There have been a couple of times when we even passed within a few feet of another dog on the sidewalk and she didn't react, although she's not consistent with this yet. Progress has been slow, but steady, and looking back, it's impressive how far Star has come!
I've also been using
Grand Prairie Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's techniques to teach Star some tricks, and she now knows "speak," "play dead," and "happy dance" (where she jumps around in a circle on command) and we are working on "wave hello/goodbye."
Grand Prairie Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's instruction also helped me form a closer bond with my dog, and Star is more easily focused and seems to be a calmer and happier pooch overall.
The $100/hour price tag is a bit daunting, but I shopped around and it's actually a great deal compared to what a lot of other trainers are charging for private sessions. And how much you get out of that $100 is up to you - once

is gone, if you are dedicated and put in the work every day, you WILL see results. I couldn't be happier and look forward to seeing even more progress with my dog as we continue to work together.

She is a good listener and provided us practical tips on how to walk the dogs in a public setting. Then for the door greeting since she came to the house we rolled played people coming in. It was a great refresher for us!

I adopted two puppies from SPCA that are having trouble socializing. Trainer seemed like a nice guy but could not get near either dog in an hour. His advice was to let them get a little hungry and only hand feed them. Not bad advice really but that seemed to be the only plan.

With just a few hours of time spent learning from
Grand Prairie Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, most Drake's issues have improved significantly. It's certainly a family commitment -- the changes need to come from everyone, not just the dog, in order to be effective. We have needed to change how we communicate to Drake, and he has been much relieved and happier since we made these changes. Our walks are much more enjoyable, and the mental engagement that is now present on our walks results in much more energy expended -- usually for both of us! There is much less barking in our house. There is much less marking and stops to
Grand Prairie Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
on our walks. While we continue to work on the thunderstorm anxiety and some aggression towards other dogs, there has been much improvement made in both of these areas -- there is no longer a time were we are not in control of our dog, which is very important as he is very large for his breed (115 lbs, and very tall). We will celebrate the first anniversary of Drake's adoption in just a few weeks -- we are so proud of his excellent progress, and we owe a large thanks to many of Drake's improvements to

's excellent guidance. I would recommend his services to anyone who needs help with their dog's behavior!

During my evaluation visit,
Grand Prairie Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
had Penny, the untrained rescue, walking in a 'heel' within 10 minutes. I was amazed!!! This was a dog who pulled incessantly on the leash and was VERY hard to control! He also took me outside and let his dog out of the very cool truck - several kennels were inside. His dog, a Belgian Malinois, listened and responded to many commands, and did some amazing things. It was very impressive.
Grand Prairie Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
presented me with several different training packages including him taking Penny for a week or so and boarding her and training her himself - returning her to me when he was finished. I wanted to learn to train my own dogs, so opted for the unlimited lessons training package that included two ecollars (an extra for my other dog) and receiver, both with lifetime warranties. Also group lessons so that dogs could learn to respond with multiple distractions. I just had my third lesson and cannot extol this program's success enough. My dogs are in control. They walk on a LOOSE leash. There is no more bedlam when we walk out of the door. They don't bark, jump or roughhouse. They are continuing to become well behaved dogs and they LOVE training time. I will say I had a previous experience training my first GSP with the typical food reward method of training. She did not respond 100% of the time. I wanted dogs who would come when called, stay sitting when told to sit and allow me to be in control. This became compounded with TWO GSPs...I had to do something different and a friend recommended

. I have never regretted this decision.

is knowledgeable, focused and very professional. He usually arrives early for our appointment. He is a real dog lover and they respond well to him. The ecollar thing can be offputting to people - believe me, it is not a 'shock' but more of a twinge. You only turn up the numbers when they refuse to listen. They will react just as well off of the collar as on the collar with consistent training. My girls are better dogs and so much more fun to live and interact with since we began training with

We have been trying to contact this provider but he does not return calls or emails. We had a June date for training and he had to cancel b/c of a legal matter. We were gracious and re-scheduled to
Grand Prairie Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, but we then had a death in the family. We asked for our money back, but they refused. We finally found a family member who could bring our dog to be trained and we've been calling and emailing since then, but have received no response. We are ready to file in small claims court. This is our only option for contacting the provider. He hasn't answered any recent emails or phone calls. I refuse to leave another message b/c his phone message is 3 mins long!
