"Our trainer,
, has made a world of difference with our 5 yr old German
, Kona. We adopted Kona 3 yrs ago from the" Humain Society. She had very serious dog aggressive issues and had to be placed with a family that would be a one dog household. Kona is great with people. She is very sweet and affectionate. However, when she saw another dog she would go into full blown attach mode. It was so bad that she even tried to attach our TV when she would see dogs on the screen. We had to walk her late at night to try to avoid dogs. Riding in the car with her was challenging as she would bark and scratch at the door whenever she saw dogs, motorcycles or bikers. We had other trainers try to work with her but it didn't make any difference. Then we found
. Kona was enrolled in the three week program where she stayed with her trainer
24x7. On her 5th day in the program
uploaded a video on Facebook of Kona walking around in the pack of their training dogs. It was amazing. My husband and I had to watch the video about ten times before we could believe this was really our Kona. On our 10 day update call
updated us on her progress. He said she was not a dog that had been trainer or was by nature an aggressive dog.Most likely she was never socialized as a puppy and as a result she was fearful of other dogs. Over the next two weeks we continually received video updates and with each one we saw a huge change in Kona. We have had her back from training for three weeks now and it is wonderful. We can walk her around other dogs. I can walk her without worry that she will drag me down the street. She gets excited each morning to put on her collar and do her daily training. She is great in the car now too. She was always a sweet dog with people but now she seems happier than ever. She is so much more calm and relaxed. No longer a nervous dog. This change has given her and us a new life. We love traveling and being outside and now we can do those things with her. We know this is a lifetime commitment that requires we continue her training daily but we would not be where we are today without
. He showed Kona so much love and kindness. You can tell he loves dogs and has a natural talent to bring out the best in them. We are forever grateful to him and
. We recommend this program to anyone.

"I can not stress how impressed my husband and I are with
. We could tell from the initial phone call that he was truly passionate with what" he's doing, but when we met him in person his passion, work ethic, and techniques all are evident within seconds. Our dog was deemed "un-trainable" by several other dog trainers, well they were wrong... PLEASE don't give up on your dog, give
a call first!

We could not be more pleased. We have seen so much progress with our dog. Our dog seems much more relaxed around strangers. We now feel like we are in control of our dog and, as an added bonus, our dog seems happier! Our work and our dog"s work is a work in progress and we now have the tools to effectively direct our dog toward great behavior. For those of you, who have been on the fence about contacting someone to help you with your dog--my recommendation is to not wait and hire "
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
". You will not be disappointed. I can't say enough positive things about our experience.

Excellent. When my husband saw video of our dog, he said it was like she was a whole new dog.

Very effective in short amount of time. Paid for 10 sessions plus lifetime maintenance. After first session, my recently rescued Rottweiler mix, was walking at heel and sitting when I stopped. Not 100% of the time, but I no longer had back and shoulder pain from walking her. Four sessions in, and she walks at heel with few corrections on the majority of our daily walks. She also comes when I call her. That was a huge concern of mine. The hardest job
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
has is training me. If you're looking for unicorns and rainbows, you won't get it from him. Just plain talk and tough love.

We have an 8ish year old lab mix named
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
that we adopted a little over 2 years ago.
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
nipped at our A/C repair man when he visited our house a few months ago. Although
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
was generally a good dog, even one instance of nipping/biting behavior was unacceptable and we wanted to address it. We called
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
and he said he could help us. When we described the situation, he said that
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
was overly protective of me, and she needed to learn that she didn't need to protect me.
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
said my husband and I needed to be the leaders, and she wouldn't feel like she needed to protect me/us.
He came to our house to do the training, and he worked around our somewhat challenging schedules.
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
responded well to
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
, and with
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
's guidance we have definitely changed the dynamics. I don't believe we would have the same problem today with the nipping.
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
is now very obedient. She walked well on a leash before, but now she heels when walking. She sits and stays on command, and we can leave food in front of her and if we say "leave it" she'll leave it until we tell her she can have it. When people come to the door she still barks (which I like - I don't want her to stop that), but if I check the peephole and tell her to sit she'll stop barking and stay back and seated as I answer the door (although we're still working on the staying seated for a while while I talk to someone outside -- she wants to get up - but she's 80% of the way there).
When
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
trained
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
, he was also training me and my husband. We have changed how we interact with the dog, and as a result the dog's behavior has changed. I even taught
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
one or two things that
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
didn't teach us -- if I can post a picture of
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
balancing treats on her head, I will (so far I haven't figured out how, though).
I was concerned that having a dog with that level of obedience would mean the dog was fearful, but
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
seems more comfortable now than before. She doesn't always seem to enjoy the process of learning a new command but once she learns it she loves it -- she loves the attention. I think I've bonded more with the dog after working with her, too.
One thing to know about having
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
come to a home is that there aren't as many distractions as there would be out in a more public/busier area. That was great for us at the beginning, but now we're ready to challenge
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
more. We're planning a couple more sessions with
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
, and we'll have those out in a public park.
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
has been very flexible about when and where we meet to do training.
In short, I highly recommend

"My name is Autumn, like the season". This is Autumn's introduction at the beginning of every new class that she conducts. It fits her so perfectly as she will exceed your expectations with flying colors!

We were first introduced to
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
when we acquired our bullmastiff puppy and enrolled in Puppy Kindergarten. Since then, we have taken several classes with Autumn including a basic course, intermediate course, and Autumn's own creation "Charm School". Her approach is that from a dog's perspective and she teaches YOU how to train your dog. I have literally seen a dog come in the first day of class and hide under the table with no intent of interacting in the class. At the end of 6 weeks, this dog was totally transformed and was socializing, romping, and taking commands from his owner like he was a totally different dog. Yep, Autumn's classes have THAT effect!

I can not say enough good things about Autumn. We (as well as our dog) look forward to every one of her classes. She makes the techniques
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
and demonstrates the patience to work with you and your dog during class! Her training simply WORKS. It is evident when you meet her that training dogs is not just her job, it is her passion. The dogs simply love her! Oh, and on a side note, she has a little comedian in her too. There are times I can't stop laughing.

There were 4 dogs all together for this "open
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
" date: a spaniel, a sheltie, my Chihuahua, and the business owner's
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
.
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
lobbed ball after ball for the sheltie and
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
to fetch. The spaniel sometimes joined them in their chase to be the first to get the ball although she seemed more interested in checking out the toys that are strewn everywhere and showed a particular interest in rubber chickens. My Chihuahua sometimes ran after the pack but mostly cuddled up to anyone who seemed to have an inclination to offer a treat, typical behavior for him. My Chihuahua and I have been regulars at
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
for over a year, ever since he passed his temperament test. It involved
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
's observing how he reacted to her
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
, who invited my dog to play and still does. Every week, the
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
offers him the current ball-in-play, but when mine shows no interest in engaging goes off to play on her own or with the other dogs. The composition of the play group changes all the time so my dog gets a
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
to socialize with other small breeds if he chooses to or chooses not to. The constant at every
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
date is
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
. She's always right there, keeping an eye on the playground and intervening immediately if there's a playmate kerfluffle. Sometimes I've had questions about canine behavior, both about that of my dog and of others I've observed, and
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
has always shared both an explanation or several possibilities for the behavior and interventions that might be tried if the behavior is unacceptable.

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
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
. 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
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
who was in our bedroom. She told us before
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
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
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
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.
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
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.
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
just dug her. We practiced
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
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
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
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
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
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.
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
totoally got it!
Back at home when we go to
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
's food or toys and get bit, now we know how to OWN. The house, the food, the toys, our kids, everything. Now
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
owns nothing, we just share it with her.
I would say the best thing is that
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
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-
Glendale Dog Trainers Provider Name Locked
'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.
