Animal Training reviews in Schenectady

    Nathan is a wonderful trainer. It wasn't until I moved away from the area and had to find another trainer that I realized what a wonderful trainer I had at Four Paws Academy. His instruction is patient and informative. The should call it "people training for dogs" since he teaches you the reasons why a dog behaves the way it does. |My 9 month labradoodle puppy attended 3 sessions of training and was on course for his Canine Good Citizen certificate before I relocated. Subsequent classes were lower in price if you continued with the training. The classes are small and offered at different times. The facility is perfect for training dogs. ON my fist day I was impressed with how quickly my dog responded to my commands. I would definitely recommend. Four Paws also provides doggy day care and boarding (which I used when we went on vacations or left town for a few days).

    My class was on Sundays at 11:00am for 6 weeks.
    I have gone to Albany Obedience about 15 years ago and loved it.
    I decided to bring my Irish Setter to class. My dog had past training at APF. He passed Obedience and had his Canine Good Citizen. I just wanted to see if I can go further with him.
    I was very excited that my 2 trainers were Irish Setter owners. The first day of class I was told that my dog was too fat and his fur was shabby. They also told me that they were going to ride my a**. I was ok with all this I understand that they will tell me what I was doing wrong. I believe in possitive training not negetive training. They were beyond strict with my dog. They yanked him around by his leash told me to step on his paw if he didn't lay down a certain way. There was another trainer there who was very nice.
    They were told to back off. Well the second class wasn't any better. It got to the point that my dog hated going there and froze up when he was there.
    After class someone approached me and commented that they couldn't believe that I came back after the way they treated my dog.
    My dog is very well behaved. I was just there to see if we can going further with his training.
    Never went back to the third class. Called them 4 times and left a message to please call me back so we can talk about this. They never called me back. I stopped payment on the $100 check.

    Excellent training for both me and my puppies. I learned a lot from Kristina as did my puppies. They loved her visits. We came a long way and I thank you, Kristina.

    They have good training programs. Their instructors are inconsistent.
