We are extremely happy with the results. Ziva is almost the perfect dog even though she is only 18 months old. She's great with other dogs and with kids. She is not totally trained off leash yet, but that has more to do with dogs in the neighborhood running loose. I don't want her chasing them and

into traffic. We can take her hiking through the woods and let the leash drag behind her and she stays right with us and doesn't attempt to run off even if she sees a deer.
I would recommend

K-9 Dog Training to everyone no matter what age your dog is or what the issue is.
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
can help make your dog a near perfect family member. He uses positive reinforcement techniques which builds the dog's self confidence and makes them eager to learn.

was very, very helpful. I have an 85lb extremely "reactive" goldendoodle named Buster. I was afraid to take him on walks because he would get overly excited whenever he saw another dog ... I could not control him or his excitement on leash. I knew he would not hurt another dog, but my neighbors were afraid my dog would attack their dog. Whenever Buster saw another dog, he would

my balance ... He caused me to fall a few times. One time he lunged so hard I fell and hit the back of my head on the asphalt and had to get several staples. We tried choke collars and electric collars. I wasn't sure my 6 year old goldendoodle was trainable. I was pretty desperate for help. Thank goodness I found

. We had several private lessons --- she would bring her dogs and her husband to some of our lessons .... taught me a lot about what to do and how to handle Buster in all kinds of situations.

was calm with Buster and patient with me. After a few private lessons, I signed Buster up for the group class at Profeed in Vienna.

was the trainer, and he is a brilliant trainer. He KNOWS dogs and could sense whenever I needed additional coaching on how to handle Buster in a group setting ... he reinforced everything

taught me during our private lessons. I learned a lot from
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
.... honestly the two of them have made a huge difference. I would like to mention, before I called
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, I called another highly rated dog trainer on Angie's List ... he had a lot of positive reviews. His strategy is to train you and your dog in a single visit (one lesson - very expensive - that includes a special collar that is used for show dogs). I think he sensed my fear, desperation and disbelief that we could resolve the problem in a single visit. This seemed to upset him, and he dismissed me entirely. He told me he didn't think he could help me & Buster .... it was a huge let down. But in the end everything worked out very well. I highly recommend

It went terribly. Her strategy is to work up to having the dog sit for one hour. She said once the dog could do that, she was trained. After weeks of no progress, she blamed me. I have since worked with a reputable trainer, who said that is not an effective way to train a dog. My dog is now trained without making her sit for an hour. How boring and ineffective for both of us! When I called Sheilar to ask for half my money back because she was supposed to provide two personal training sessions, she said she'd think about it, then never called me back or responded to email. VERY UNPROFESSIONAL!!!!

Awesome!!! First,
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is an amazing human being. He's awesome with both difficult people (I had to drag my family into the whole training process, which wasn't easy) and difficult dogs. He rehabilitates dogs that would otherwise be euthanized. He's literally a life saver! As for my experience, I couldn't have asked for more. You have to do most of the work and show up to the training sessions and it takes a while, but when guided by these expert trainers you WILL get results above and beyond what you were looking for.

, my crazy puppy, would have been run over by a car or eaten by coyotes if it wasn't for OLDT (he would bolt out the door anytime it was opened, and was an extremely high energy little devil - he also pulled so h****** the leash that he would injure me), and
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
would have had to go back to the horrible shelter because he was attacking my nephews. How are they now?
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
stays next to me most of the time and comes when called when he's not right next to me, and
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
is a total sweetheart. He's even great with kids now, better than
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
(
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
's great too, he just hates it when my 3 year old
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
sticks his finger in his nose, etc...). I literally walk both of them
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
, even on busy roads (the sidewalk). I keep their e-collars on when on the walk, just in case, but when we do regular training with distractions (kids in the neighborhood, dogs walking by, etc...) I rarely have to zap them anymore. Everyone tells me how well behaved they are, and my Mom has been sabotaging the whole process this whole time (Mom's doing much better when she walks them, but she doesn't respond to training as well as the dogs ;). This happened despite her - thanks to
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
! By the way, lots of people have issues with using the e-collar, but it doesn't hurt the dogs. I've used it on myself, and one of my nephews used it on himself and he said it "tickled" and laughed and laughed while zapping himself. Dogs just plain don't like it, which is why it works. It does have a
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
setting that can hurt on naked skin (no physical signs, it just stings on the highest level), but it doesn't hurt on fur. I've only had to use the
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
setting on
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
when in emergency situations (e.g. he's about to run in front of a car...this was in the beginning, not now), and he's a maniac. Seriously, he's a maniac. If you have a normal dog and just want to teach your dog to sit, OLDT may be over priced for you. However, if you have an out of control dog who doesn't stick around long enough for praise and treats, or you have an aggressive dog, or a severely neurotic dog, you need to look no further than OLDT. They WILL help you. Also, the prices listed above are for training classes for the life of the dog. You can always take them back for refreshers. OLDT saved us and our dogs - literally!!

Over the last couple of months

Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
tomorrow afternoon.
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
has personally come to our home for each training session on time and well prepared and always gives a reminder call the day before.
I don't think we have the most challenging dog
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
has worked with, as their were no MAJOR issues to begin with, but we felt it was important to learn how to deal with a breed that requires some special attention and effort. we've learned a lot and
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
loves the visits. we've still got some tendencies we're trying to steer in the right direction and it will take time to get everything corrected, but we now feel like we have the tools to do so.
Thanks

When we first met
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
the confidence, experience and friendliness she exhibited won me over immediately. I had no experience with having a dog, much less training one.
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was so efficient in recognizing my reservations and inexperience as well as Frizbee's ability to learn. She trained me as well as Frizbee and the results showed on the very first visit! One of the things I admired most about her expertise is her ability to understand the psychology of animals and what their mannerisms and behavior mean in the "dog world" as well as the human world. This was such an important role for me as I've always had a fear of dogs. I no longer have that fear because now I know how dogs react in different situations and how to read their body language. This is absolutely an amazing thing to learn!
Pflugerville Pet Sitters Provider Name Locked
was able to successfully meet every one of the goals I had set for training plus many more that I wasn't even aware of prior to our training sessions. I would recommend her for any/all training anyone could want. She is excellent in training skills and on a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate her 100!! To top this off, she is funny, friendly, a pleasure to spend time with and a very nice person to know. By the way, I can now take my dog anywhere and know with absolute confidence he will be well behaved and accepted. What an accomplishment! Gaylen

's effort to help our situation amazed me. Within 2 minutes of talking with her we found out that she would be unable to physically train our dog, due to our location. She then spent over an hour on the phone with me offering training tips, training products and catalogues for us to review, and recommendations on where we could get help in our area, all free of charge. She had an immense knowledge of each category, and the information she gave us will be a big aid in moving forward with our dog's training.

takes the time to train my dog using only positive reinforcement. Although the sessions are one hour each, she typically spends longer than that at my house. She only counts the time she's working with the dog towards that one hour. When the dog needs a break, she gives him what he needs. All the animals love her and she is making fast progress with my dog. Highly recommended!

is incredibly patient, kind, and knowledgable. We have very skittish rescue dogs who are intelligent but never received training in their former homes. In just three visits our dogs are well on their way to being responsive, calm, good dog citizens.we signed up for very reasonably priced series of lessons, and we look forward to continued success.
