Animal Training reviews in Melbourne

    Bark Busters Home Dog Training
    The first visit was great!  The Trainer is very knowledgeable and we learned a lot.  Later we had a training (walking) session hoping that at least two of the dogs would get along.  That was the last of the training sessions.  I heard back from the trainer a few months later and she was to get back to me in setting up another training session.  I have not heard from the trainer since.  The cost was very high.  Unfortunately, the problem still exists.  I would say the Trainer spent approximately five (maybe six) hours total with us and the dogs. Very disappointed!

    By the time Terry left, my cocker spaniel was no longer charging the door when the bell rang and no longer gets up on the furniture.



    I have my house back!  Is coming back tonight.  Best money I have spent in a long time.

    Luv Your Pet Dog Trainer
    This was one of those times that everyone has experienced, it is very rare however.  I was being hospitalized, and unable to ask most of my friends due to a pending divorce.  That being said, I was very nervous about going to the hospital, and about what to do with my doggies.  I have learned to rely on my dogs for many things since living alone, mostly the truly unconditional love they give everyday.  I was now on a time budget,  and fortunately it was Carol that I called.  I still say to this day that she was an Angel sent to me to help when I needed it most.
    On the day I had to report to the hospital, Carol came by and showed me what services she wil be doing daily.  My dogs took to her immediately, which is very rare for my girls.  By the way, I have an 8 year old Rat Terrier and an almost 3 year old Chihuahua who rules the house.  I was going to call a taxi to go to the hospital, Carol would have no part of that, she loaded me up and when we arrived at the hospital, she got me a wheelchair, ( I forgot to mention that I am disabled ) she stayed with me until I was taken to my room.  knowing the special bond I have with my girls, she would take pictures and send them to my phone daily, which took away the pain of being confined to a bed.
    In closing, and  I could go on for hours extolling the virtues of Carol an her Company, but I think you get the picture.

    First I had in residential training so the trainer had hands on with the dog more than twice a day.When your dog does come home you must keep up the training on a daily basis. Dawn, the trainer comes to my home now to see that I know what to do to keep up her training. To train a dog takes time, patience and if not you will waste your money. Well worth the money if you follow through and have a great trainer as I did With Avatar K-9 Training.

    The Happiest Dog on the Block LLC
    Britten Candida, the owner and trainer, was recommended to me by someone who had done research into behaviorists.  I called and made an appointment and she came over about a week later.  She showed up for that appointment over two hours late, I should have taken heed.  She did an assessment of the dog (175.00).  She said she usually doesn't work with a dog for over 3 weeks, approximately 10 appointments.  She had a very difficult time scheduling appointments because of her other committments and babysitting problems.  She showed up late for every single appointment, usually not calling to let me know she would be late until after the appointed time.  Some appointments were cancelled completely, but I was not notified until after the scheduled appointment time.  I would take off work to be there and she wouldn't show up at all, only having her assistant (I suspect her mother) call at the last minute or later to apologize on her behalf.   I tried to be sympathetic to her situation, but each time was a new excuse; very unprofessional.

    The ten appointments had stretched out over 5 weeks (and only 8 completed appointments), even though she knew we had an urgent need to resolve the problem to a specific degree by a specific date.  At that point we had a major disagreement over her training method as it seemed to only work with her 'trained' assistant and nobody else and wasn't flexible enough to fit into a real household (i.e. the guests had to behave in a specific way).  I terminated the contract at that point.  I would have terminated the contract much sooner had I not paid for all 10 sessions in advance (lesson learned). 

    The good news is by implementing a plan that works with the way our lifestyle works, the dog has improved and is doing great now.

    CATHWAR SCHOOL OF DOGS
    Dick Robshaw's card was at our vet's office. I described dog's behavior on phone; he came to our house (after having 1st missed a confirmed apt) & spent a few minutes observing dog. Sat me down and assured me that he has lots of experience with this type of problem dog (previously abused) & he had full confidence of success. He required payment in full immediately & GUARANTEED money back if unsatisfied after 2 months effort. For first 2 sessions he wanted to meet at a park close to his house & after that he would continue training at our house. I brought dog to park for 1st session. Seemed to go fine, dog was fearful but calm. I brought dog to park for 2nd session & was stood up. I asked Dick for money back on the phone & a recommendation for someone who wasn't so busy. He was quite rude, but finally agreed to send my money back immediately. After a couple of other promised refunds to myself & my husband I realized he is a liar. I let vet's receptionist know.
