The trainer - Bonnie, worked well with all the dogs. I am an experienced dog owner but I have 2 dogs that were just out of control and beyond my abilities in training. She would work with the dogs individually and explain to what and why she was doing it. Then she would show me and work with me to make sure I had it down. I had purchased 4 lessons for 2 dogs. It cost $650. She was very flexible wi...

There are different pay grades and options for dog training classes. Group classes are much cheaper in the ball park of $15-30 a class.I did Bonny's Bronze Program which was $390 for 4 individual classes. Each class lasts about 1-2 hours. She stays as long as it takes for you or the dog to learn. She comes to your home and points out things that you should correct. She emphasizes training the OWNE...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Trained my black lab/american bulldog rescue. I can take my dog anywhere without any issues. If I go to the pet store I can leave him sitting in an aisle or an area of the store and do all my shopping and come back. She takes you into public settings & dog parks and really teaches you & your dog to maintain your control of everything the dog does.

Tikka went away with Bonny to her home and spent 2 weeks in an aggressive training program 24/7 that not only taught her obedience, but also socialization with other dogs (big and small) and people (big and small). She was taught to work even when distractions are present. After two (2) weeks, it was our turn. Bonny returned Tikka and spent hours that day training us in handling and dog psychology...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
I chose the most expensive training offered by Alternative Canine as my dog's last chance. I chose them because of their numerous awards and the trainers/handlers lifelong experience. I hired Bonny to perform a 2 week boot camp training for my incorrigible, Tikka the Terrible, maltese. It was Tikka's last chance as she was not only out of control with her barking, jumping and growling, but she was charging me, aggressive and biting me (drawing blood).

I first exchanged some emails with the company to determine what would be more useful for my puppy (he had a very bad nipping problem) that I could not break. I was trying to decide between group classes vs. one on one. They told me that the one-on-one hour session would be the way to go as they could focus SPECIFICALLY on his biting issues, vs. a class where it would be basic commands. Though thi...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Hired for one on one training for my puppy. Came to my house for "training" which was actually just a "puppy consultation"
