Animal Training reviews in New Carrollton

  • A
    Believing he was 1.5-2 yrs old when adopted, I was completely unprepared to discover I had an untrained oh so lively puppy. I have two other older dogs that, along with me, really needed him to start settling in. It was total chaos?eating cables and boxes, barking out of control, would not calm down, would not listen, wanting to play at 2am and barking for it, uncontrollable on a leash, etc. We were at a point where I was having to consider giving him back to the shelter, something I've never considered before in my life. I've had rescues for over 20 years and never had a problem before - but I've never had a puppy before either. A big puppy.
    I have had two classes with Allie (out of the 7) so far.  Already this dog has becoming a calmer member of the family and has mastered sit, stay, lay down, sit without moving, no longer pulls on the leash and can heel like a pro. He is also much calmer in the house, is no longer destructive and will chill out nicely when needed. A pure joy to walk now too, and I think he's becoming much happier in our home?more confident and comfortable that he is loved and safe.
    Allie is one hilarious instructor with 35+ years of experience.  There hasn't been one "situation" described by any of us in the class that he hasn't dealt with before. He is the most optimistic fellow I ever met. He makes himself available by phone 24/7 during the class weeks which goes above and beyond what I'd hoped to get. I went to visit a class before signing up and spoke with him twice on the phone as well. He is willing to talk all you need, answer all your questions and never once pressures you into taking his classes. 
    His $99 fee is the lowest of any training service I have found.  He strongly believes in positive reinforcement and makes a big deal out of not hurting or frightening the dog, yet helps you master training methods that work almost instantly and can be used in the future for other dogs. He does not use training treats in this class (which could easily make my pup go overweight), nor does he use things like clickers or e-collars.  It is you and the dog and his guidance.  And I was completely stunned at the fast results I starting seeing with my wild-child dog!
    In the first class I watched him take one of the pups (an out of control scared biter, no less) to demonstrate how to teach the dog to walk politely.  Within 60 seconds (literally) this out of control pup was walking calming beside him as if it was the most natural thing in the world.  (Yes, everyone's jaws dropped at the sight and at how fast he did it.)
    After our basic obedience class is over I am most likely going to enroll in the advanced (agility) class. 
    He's a dog whisperer in his own right and I could not be more pleased with the results I am already seeing in my big puppy.
    I cannot recommend him and his staff highly enough.
