Animal Training reviews in Oro Valley

  • For my current needs, they replied quickly and referred me to a handyman service that found the right contractor for my needs. My dogs now have an unusual looking but covered metal mesh dog run from the doggie door out onto the lawn within the walled yard. Doubt any more life threatening coyote or bobcat or hawk attacks could happen again. Their dog training services were top notch when I was using them in the past. Doggie door has been well done and sturdy for 9 years now.

  • Susan was awesome with my miniature American Shepard. These are active dogs and I was in over my head. She not only trains the dog, but the owner as well. She continues to provide support and answer my questions. She is always available to me and made a word of difference in my puppies behavior. She even taught him to swim and now he is enjoying dock diving where as before he wouldn't even swim! He is much more obedient, happy and confident. I would highly recommend Susan as your dog trainer.

  • Outstanding! We were every excited in the change of our dogs'  behavior. His suggestions were not only helpful, but easy for us to practice and implement. We are so thrilled with the immediate results that we are working on our homework with the dogs and have already booked a follow up session next week.  You will not regret asking for their help. You and your dogs will be much happier after having this service.

  • I have a 6 month old Aussie, named Angel, that was terrorizing my other senior dogs, me, the yard and the house.  Angel is very smart and knew how to control all of us.  After trying to do some basic training myself, I realized it was over my head and signed up for a puppy class.  Before going to class I outlined all of the issues I was having with Angel.  Trainer said, "No Problem, we can help you with all of that."  Second class and the trainer was yelling "don't let your dog do that..."  No instructions, no help, waste of money.  I was at my wits end as I loved Angel but could not go on with the way things were.  

    After searching I met with Susan of New Dogs-Old Trix.  Susan worked extensively with Angel in the areas of socialization, confidence building, "manners," standard obedience, and so much more.  Along the way she sent me videos and email updates of Angel's progress. She had him sitting in place and he was happy to do it.  He would stay as he was told when the doorbell rang, or someone knocked on the door, other dogs would walk in or out.  Angel heels with or without a leash, even free walking he does not go too far away.  A few of the amazing things she accomplished are:  1.  Assured recall.  Distracted or not, Angel actually comes when I call him.  2.  Stay.  I can tell Angel to sit, wait, then walk away, out of his sight.  He will stay there until I tell him to come.  3.  Leave it.  Angel will immediately stop pestering my other dogs or stay away from something dangerous when I say leave it.  4.  Calmly staying in the back seat when I'm driving.  5.  He doesn't rush in or out of the door.  and 6.  He behaves when going out in public!

    However the thing that I absolutely appreciate the most is that I can put Angel in his "place," tell him to stay, and I can actually eat dinner without him going crazy or making me feel guilty for not giving him my dinner!!!!!  

    Seriously, I have no clue what she did with my dog as the one she gave back to me is so much more enjoyable!

    Thank you Susan.

  • medical issues, I was very concerned with his iThis is a folllow up to a previous very positive review. Unfortunately, my dog was attacked and bitten very recently. Gerard w=made himself imediately available by phone and follow up emails with suggestions of how to best resolve my dogs anxiety following this horrible incident. While the Vets dealt with his meicical issues I was very concerned with how he woukd react to other dogs and people in general.
    Gerards support and advise was very helpful in this regard. And his compassion and follow ups to see how things progressed were very appreciated.
    This reflects his care and professionalism.

  • prised by his consistent pantience and positiveGerard's program includes a series of home visits.  A specific plan for me to follow between visits, to reinforce good behavior, and maximize the effectiveness of his eforts. He also provides all the things, including the proper training collars nd leashes.
    I found that he was unexpectedly available for phone consultations to answer any questuins or concerns, And any calls were very promptly reurned. He seems genuinely caring. At my reqquest made suggestions about everything from food to toys. Or anything else I asked him.
    I was genuinely surprised by his consistent availability, and genuine concern for me and my dog's welfare.

  • Gerard was wonderful to work with. While the price tag may seem a bit high, it is worth it and is a good deal once you add up all the focused, one-on-one attention you and your dog get from him. I couldn't have gotten anything near the quality of what I got from Gerard had I paid for group obedience classes. I truly feel I got my money's worth and more. I was extremely overwhelmed and nervous about our puppy and I didn't know what to do. From the first phone call, before I'd even hired him, Gerard was generous with his time and offered logical sensible tips that I could immediately employ with my dog. Gerard helped give me the confidence I need to help train my puppy and have him truly become a member of our family. I highly recommend Gerard.

  • First time I took my year old rescue Yorkie for puppy training and she was socialized more and less frightened. Vanya uses positive reinforcement which works. She learned to sit, stay and come and would be more proficient if I kept up the training at home. My dog understands but decided what she wants to do which Vanya helped us with so we would be Alpha. Vanya has the skills to teach, but I have to follow through too. Vanya is very patient and consistent with training.
    The second time I used Animal Magnetism, was for decreasing my dogs' barking. this time Vanya came to the house and spent a good 90 minutes if not longer. She had our dog doing much better in that short period of time. Again positive reinforcement was used as well as time out when it became obvious the dog was exercising her will too much. It worked and continued as we continued with the reinforcements.
    I would highly recommend her for both her classes and private sessions.

  • We loved working with Gerard. We were so impressed with his dog training skills that we bought a lifetime subscription to Gerard and Barkbusters to help us stay in tune to our Schnoodles needs as she grows. Today she is a very happy dog and we thank Gerard and BarkBusters for our success.

  • I have been utilizing Dr. Moreno's services for several months now. She has assisted me with helping my dog overcome his fear aggression at the vet's office. After several weeks of work, he was ready to "graduate" to an actual vet visit. I was so pleased when not only was the vet able to do a complete examination but was even able to draw blood. She also helped me overcome my dog's anxiety with getting his nails clipped. And now we are working on helping him become more "socially appropriate" around other dogs. I could not be more pleased with her services - you will not be disappointed. She is fantastic.
