"I was very pleased with the work they did with her. She is a shy dog but it was interfering with training and they got her to respond positively to the basic commands" and to be more self confident at home as well as out in public. They are pricey but to me it was worth it. They sent videos twice a week and emails to keep me up to date with her training. She returned home a positively changed dog and she will be easier to continue training. Before I could hardly get her to come close to sit or down, now she is at my feet and without fear. I had never had a dog so inhibited in her actions and reactions. She came to me that way and I felt it was because the breeder probably never handled her as a puppy. Building her self confidence was essential and has been so helpful. Now it will be fun to take her out places and not have her
. They use positive training techniques which is what was necessary for her. I had been tying to train her myself with praise and rewards, but she really didn't respond much to either; it seemed that she was ADD. The use of the collar helps immensely because it keeps her focused on the training activity. She is only a year old but at least now she is off to a good start with her training and as she matures, she will only improve.

"It was very interesting. Start - all the humans together telling her what we wanted for our dog. She let my kids talk first so me and my husband didn't put" words in their mouths. Then she went to meet
who was in our bedroom. She told us before
could run away, saunter back and forth looking over her shoulder, rush this trainer to try to eat her, or take a few steps back obiently. We had no clue what to expect, but
started by backing away and rrrrin'g/like not quite a grow. Then she said I get it, and came forward a little bit and all by herself went into a down with a OOF release of energy. It was fascinating. She just gave all the (crap) she has been throwing at us up, said HELP ME it looked like. Okay like so from there it was really good.
was let out of the room but she kept following Lyndy around like she had a t-bone steak in her pocket, but she never used treats.
just dug her. We practiced
home stuff about no longer on furniture, on a "Lazy Boy Chair" blankie on the floor instead. We practiced not letting her lunge out of the back door but not asking her to sit (hurts old dogs we learned) but WAIT but slilent. Beautiful. Then up down stairs now
is not allowed to run in front of us she stays behind. Then out to the walk. Here's what all you need to learn. Short leash but relaxed. Very small tiny pop to put your own
back in place. With other folks and dogs and whatvers, don't wait until it becomes bad. Get in front of it before it happens, and then it is real easy.
totoally got it! Back at home when we go to
's food or toys and get bit, now we know how to OWN. The house, the food, the toys, our kids, everything. Now
owns nothing, we just share it with her. I would say the best thing is that
was always very nervous, kinda bristly. Now we know we have to be patinet and repeat a lot, but I have never seen my dog really relax in her life. And now she is doing so. I hugged Lyndy and boo-
'd with tears at the end, I was so relieved. It was the best under $200 bucks I have ever spent in my life. And compared to the $2K I've spent for dog training in the past, what a huge waste.

Dog Training reviews in Richardson

My puppy is a rambunctious golden retriever, very sweet, high energy. His dad was determined to do all his training himself, and then he was transferred out of state. I felt totally outnumbered and out of control. I heard about

through a coworker, who actually brought his dog up to the office to show off his skills... I was so impressed, I called him the same day. I purchased the $1,400 package, where he come every week until he is trained, with options for refreshers if he backslides... At the end of the first session, I knew I had made the right decision. I could see exactly where he was going with my dog, and I could follow his lead easily. I could not believe how quickly my dog learned the ropes. He is much more pleasant to be around now, although he is still a work in progress. We have also taken advantage of the boarding that K-9 offers.

She came out and took about an hour of bs talk I already knew. Tried to call her back, she answered one time and that was it. If she didn't want to mess with my guys she should of told us.

When we picked Indy up after his Boot Camp graduation, we were amazed at what he had learned. He is now more manageable at home and is comfortable being around other dogs and people. I was worried that his training would change his personality, but none of that changed!

Anytime I can’t find anything they always help me. The service and the grooming is great. They always went out of their way to give me coupons and deals when I came in also. The groomers were always very flexible and would let me leave the dogs with them for a few hours if I had other appointments and it wouldn’t cost me any extra.

We chose
Richardson Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
as our trainer and couldn't be happier with that decision. In the 3 private sessions we've had thus far, we are already seeing amazing results. Our dogs are more responsive, and are quickly learning to
Richardson Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
our voice commands. We had previously gone through a basics course with another trainer which I think helped our dogs excel and adapt to this training well.

I was not sure I was going to like the use of an e-collar, but
Richardson Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
let us feel it on ourselves prior to making any decisions about signing up, so we knew what the dogs would experience. Our dogs are learning place, heel, come on command from a distance, waiting for their release word, and we are becoming more comfortable and confident with the training. Our dogs are getting ready to transition into group classes, which is a big step. I have no doubt with the private sessions we had with
Richardson Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
and the continued training we do at home, that our dogs will be ready to go anywhere with us.

I would recommend this training to anyone who wants to have a well trained canine, big or small. It's reassuring to know that we have control over our dogs in the event that we encounter someone who has an untrained pet. It's also allowing us the freedom to take our dogs more places with us and include them in family activities outside of the house.

We have trained three Boston Terriers at

Richardson Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
does a great job of training us to train our dogs. He makes sure to add humor and laughs along the way. I'm also thankful that they offer an advanced class so your dog can continue to grow and maintain his training. There is a real family atmosphere to this place and they have nice social gatherings too.

After two weeks of training our puppy was much calmer at home, He was jumping much less, biting less and obeying more. His commands are much stronger and he learned more while with
Richardson Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
. She did a great job of not only taking care of him during the two weeks of training but for starting the process of getting our puppy to being more obendient and calmer. He offically can walk on a loose leash which is a huge help. We will definitely use

Beginner class was a small group, punctual, and well organized. Instructor gave the impression she did not like our dog breed, bu worked well with him. We went on to the intermediate class and an incident between dogs during the first class. We offered not to continue that class so the other dog could continue. Instructor never offered to refund our payment. She never contacted us again, that was 2 years ago. I would not recommend this trainer.
