Animal Training reviews in Davie

    Third Day Dog Training
    Dan was extremely helpful and knowledgeable in training the pack and using dog psychology. He gave lots of tips and advice and instilled confidence in me to handle all 6 dogs together in differing situations. He was available outside of training hours for advice and guidance and he follows up with the client which is unusual of other training professionals.

    Not only did we trust him with our dogs, and welcomed him into our home, but paid him over $2,000 to train our dogs. He came to our home approximately 4 times. At times showed up and stayed for NO more than 20 minutes....... Was NEVER following up with us. My husband and I both are self employed and have successful businesses, with great customer service and reviews. This guy on the other hand has NO customer service skills, no people skills for that matter... I guess that's why he "works" with dogs. Let me go on to his training method........ Since my dog is very active he then suggested we try the training with an eCollar.. An eCollar is an electronic collar. Basically something I could have figured out by myself. Again, we trusted in him and paid another $500 and sum for the 2 eCollars. We tried training with the eCollar and one of the eCollars stopped working... He took it with him and said he would get a new one, at which time he never came back. I called him over 3 times to book another training session and he said he would call me back when he got home and never did. My husband tried calling him at which point he was EXTREMELY RUDE, YELLED AT HIM AND HUNG UP ON HIM. I've tried calling him myself several more times to get our eCollar back and he literally yells at me and hangs up on me!!!! I am NOT one to comment or review businesses, but I will go out of my way to make sure EVERYONE knows what kind of a CROOK this guy is!!! DO NOT give this guy money!!! Once he has it he literally does NOT care what you have to say!!!!!

    Horrible. They were not responsive. They were supposed to send me updates and videos of the training session but never received a call. I contacted them mid-week and they did not respond quickly. When I asked them for an update and video, I received 2 videos (filmed upside down) that lasted approximately 2-3 minutes which gave me absolutely NO insight as to what was going on. The people are nice and friendly when they are trying to sell you the training packages but once you give them your credit card, their attitudes change quickly. They are unresponsive to emails or phone calls and when you do finally get through to them, they are extremely rude. This was a huge waste of money. Would NOT recommend this place.

    I highly recommend Breedmaster dog training! We had a
    wonderful experience there! Our boxer puppy is a very energetic loving puppy
    which often made it too much for us to handle training along with running
    around with our 2yr old. After she stayed at Breedmaster dog training she came
    home a new dog.
    She knows all the tools and fundamentals they
    taught her and us. She has not once had an accident in our since she's been
    home. Because of Breedmaster dog training we can now enjoy our home and our
    puppy. The owners Lisa and Larry could not have been more easier to work with.
    Very pleased!

    It went horribly. I attempted to contact the company yesterday & I spoke with Lisa (the owner or owners wife). I  was told that the contract was broken & that I am in default. She told me that my daughter signed a contract but she never left a copy of this "contract". I asked her to mail me a copy of the contract. I would like a refund of $700 because I paid $875 total & they only came out twice & the third time they were asked to leave. They were very snotty & nasty people to deal with & no work was done! 

    UPDATE AS OF 7/31/15: In response to the provider's reply to my review; the statements made are completely false.

    UPDATE AS OF 8/3/15: The dog is doing excellent with the new trainer. The rocking on the chair did not cause any trouble for her. Our house is not filthy it is simple mistakes which any puppy has. Also, it takes time and extensive training to train a service dog which they never gave us the time needed anyways. He does not even know the definition of service dog.

    We did the 5 week plan and Edel trained me and my wife, ok and our Akita also. All off-leash commands and also he trained him not to go past the front door without us giving the command. We can now leave the front door open, walk away and he will not leave. K9 Advisors is a very good company and I highly recommend them.

    The experience went very well. When you arrive at the facility, they want you to keep your dogs all separated so they do not interact. When we went into the facility, we were able to keep our puppy near us and then the trainer went through different things that we should and shouldn't be doing when training our puppy. We quickly realized that we were doing many things wrong. Our puppy responded well, but was a little distracted by all the other dogs. The class is 1 hour long. Most of the hour goes towards individual training with our puppy. The instructor tells us what to do and we do it. The last part of the class is puppy play time. This is where all of the puppies are taken off their leashes and are allowed to play and interact without any involvement from the owners until the instructor says its ok. We were instructed to bring training treats, a bone, and a rope or play toy. The training treats are used throughout the class and the bone is used to distract the puppy when the instructor is speaking. Since we did the one class, we have been practicing what was taught and our puppy is doing much better than before. We signed up for 6 classes total after our first class which cost $75. I can't wait to go to more classes and have our puppy keep learning.

    After a few lessons I felt taken in. when a lesson was actually given, we learned, but the lack of communication between the trainer and his wife(who answered the phone and took care of appointments etc.) was not apparent. He was either very,very late or did not show and no phone call. The wife's attitude stunk! When I finally reached the trainer on the phone, there were all sorts of excuses and denial of any wrong doing. I asked for my money back, and with a chuckle he said their are no refunds,but you can have free lessons for life. That was nice but I wasn't looking for a freebie I just wanted both of them to do what I gave them 800.00 dollars to do! |I have phone conversations recorded on my cell phone and I will not delete them any time soon.

    On Sunday, January 20, 2013, I dropped off my German Shepherd puppy at Breedmasters in Southwest Ranches. I provided the crate, food, leash and collar for my puppy's two week stay at Breedmaster. My puppy was dropped off on Sunday, January 20th and I paid $850 in full on that date. Larry promised to remedy the following behavioral problems: jumping, biting/nipping, leash pulling, leash biting, keeping off furniture and excessive barking. Larry also promised to teach my dog the "Alarm" response. I desired no protection training and I requested that the puppy learn manners to be tolerant of all children.
    The puppy was not ready at the two week mark, but I asked if I could drop off the puppy's Heartgard. I brought over my entire family to see our puppy on Saturday, Feb. 2. Larry's wife Lisa presented our dog as Larry was not available. The dog however, was out of control. Our dog jumped on our car, on myself, my wife and would not sit when commanded two or three times. The puppy was also bleeding from the right-side corner of her lip. We all drove home believing that our dog was not being trained at all and was perhaps being neglected. Finally, on Wednesday, Feb. 13th, I was able to pick up my puppy following 24 days of training - a much longer period of time than planned. Upon my arrival, the dog was obediently sitting in Larry's driveway with Larry as handler. Larry demonstrated how my dog would sit and stay and how she would do a down/stay. I noticed that my dog was very timid and afraid and that she only followed Larry's commands about 2/3rd's of the time. Larry suggested that I try these two basic commands. The dog responded to me about 50% of the time. Larry was quick to blame me - the handler. Larry also said that my dog was just a puppy, and puppies forget. Larry also viewed himself as generous as he gave me the prong collar he used on my puppy.
    Once at home, the dog smelled very bad and her crate was rusty. That night, I purchased flea spray and sprayed the dog and the crate. The dog had to be housed in the garage that night as she smelled awful. I actually needed to take off from work the next day to sanitize the crate and have the dog professionally bathed. I believe the dog was outside for a good part of those 24 days, although I cannot know for certain. Breedmaster failed to perform the most basic training, and in fact, my dog regressed as she had prior training at both PetSmart and training with a private trainer in home. I selected Breedmaster based on price and location. Yesterday, Larry Silvey cancelled his appointment to show up at our home to provide follow-up in-house training as his wife called with the excuse that he was bitten by a spider. Larry Silvey has made no attempt to provide an explanation of training provided, commands taught or changed behaviors. At no time during the 24 day period did Larry contact me himself. Instead, he would have his wife call. On Feb. 19, I finally did receive a certificate for Puppy Training from Breedmaster Training. But our puppy completed puppy training at PetSmart for $110 a month earlier and I paid for Advanced Obedience Training.
    I am currently working with my dog trying to re-teach her commands she had forgotten at Breedmaster. I have also hired a new trainer who concurs that a placing a prong collar on puppies for training purposes is inhumane.

    Betsy is awesome. I just couldn't afford it with all my other things breaking around the house.
