Profile: Saranne Corley Riccio is a Certified Dog Trainer through Animal Behavior College.
Her background in fostering and rescue showed her the need for people to become more educated about their dogs and learn how to work through many basic training issues. She saw the number of dogs being turned into animal control due to issues like housetraining, loose leash walking, chewing, etc. that many owners simply did not know how to correct or where to go to get help.

Saranne strives to bridge the gap in understanding between humans and canines to enable a more harmonious relationship by teaching Positive Reinforcement Training.

She is also working towards earning her Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCDT-KA) Certification.

Profile: I work primarily with rescue dogs. Many new owners do not understand the source of their dog's behavior problems in and out of the home. I encourage fostering, foster-to-adopt, and adopting through established rescue organizations. My goal is to work through basic training procedures and minimize the chance a dog will be returned to a shelter, further traumatized.

My training philosophy is based on ABC's principles, with some clicker training and modeling using rehabilitated dogs. Much of my training is free of charge; a chronic illness makes firm scheduling a challenge.

Profile: I am a dog trainer and walker based in South Orange County California. I graduated ABC's Dog Trainer Program with honors in 2012. I started my own business to help people and their dogs lead happier more balanced lives together.

Growing up in Southern California my family always had pets: cats, dogs, rabbits, snakes. I love all animals. I was bitten by a dog as an eight year old and went through a period of time where I learned to be afraid of dogs. I eventually grew past it and it has given me a particularly sympathetic perspective and tempered my enthusiasm with wisdom.

By the time I was a teenager my family rescued two dogs CJ and Dane. I always considered them mine and eventually when I moved out on my own they moved with me. They were both Great Dane mixes and over 100 lbs each. They taught me a lot and gave me a lot of happiness for many years.

Now I am married and my husband and I rescued a Lab/Border Collie mix from a local shelter. She is still young but learning to be a great dog and teaching me to be a better trainer.

Profile: Hello, my name is Frederico Strange, I grew up in Atlanta Ga, and served 8 years in the United States Air Force (USAF) as a Military Working Dog Handler.

I am now servicing the Bakersfield, Lake Isabella, Wofford Heights and surrounding areas throughout Kern County.

While growing up I discovered I had an incredible bond with dogs. I started out at the age of 6 with my first dog. Was a Labrador/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix named Bella. I taught her how to sit, down and follow me everywhere I went.

While training dog within the USAF a few of the many things that I taught dogs was basic obedience, advanced obedience (off-leash), agility and scent tracking.

In 2007 when my enlistment was coming to a close I separated from the USAF and began the long venture of starting my own business.

I continued to train dog in Atlanta from 2007-2013 to keep myself knowledgeable and disciplined within my training skills.

In January of 2013 enrolled at Animal Behavior College to become a certified dog trainer and to acquire the knowledge of using more positive methods within my training program. After gaining the knowledge of positive training method from Animal Behavior College I consider myself a Balance dog trainer.

I graduated in the top of my class to become a certified dog trainer and along the way I received my pet CPR certification and meaning knowledge pet nutrition and effectively teaching group classes.

As part of my training I volunteered at Best Friends Animal Shelter in Mission Hills CA, which is a No kill animal shelter.

I would take dogs out for walks and spend quality time with them one on one, and give them time to run around and enjoy the outdoors.

As part of training I would observe how dogs interact and communicate with each other.My goal as the Owner of my own dog training business is to help dog owners bridge the communication gap with their beloved pet.

Through all my accomplishments and training I use a combination of positive reinforcement and negative punishment to transform your problematic dogs into model canines.

I will wrap this up by saying THANK YOU for reading this and giving me the opportunity of solving the complicated misunderstanding between your pet and yourself.

I have been training dogs for over 10 years now. I started in the United States Air Force as a K-9 Handler. I was very efficient and graduated at the top of my class in the MWD Handler Course. Since 2007 after separating for the USAF I have been actively training dogs of all breeds and temperaments.

In 2013, I graduated from Animal Behavior College from the Dog Obedience Instructors Course to become a Certified Dog Trainer.

On my journey since 2004 I have experience in teaching Scent Tracking, Protection Training and Guard dog training.

I use a more Balanced training Technique which means I use Positive training methods all the time except as a last resort for safety purposes.

I believe all dogs are eager and willing to learn, if you just learn how to communicate clearly to them in a way they understand.

I have learned through experience that training the owner how to communicate with their dog is just as important as teaching their dog basic obedience.

When you are ready to take this wonderful journey with your best friend, I am here to be your guide.

After almost 20 years working in television, I wanted to spend more time with the most important things in my life - my dogs, Gidget & Collin. In doing so, I discovered my true passion in life and started "No Place Like Home", a Professional Pet Sitting business.

I quickly realized I needed to expand my portfolio and enrolled in ABC to become a trainer. Both my dogs were holy terrors when they were puppies and now I know why. After graduating with honors from ABC, I incorporated Dog Training into my business portfolio.

Having a true understanding of dogs has made my life and business so much more fullfilling.

Profile: Working with animals has always been a passion of mine. After finding a dog abandoned on the streets who was riddled with so much trauma translating itself into aggression through fear, I became even more motivated to learn more about how a dog thinks and reacts in certain situations.

I wanted to understand how the psychology behind the action works to better help and work with these wonderful creatures as well as help the relationship between human and dog for other people as well.

After taking the year long course through Animal Behavior College, I can successfully say I understand canine behavior more and how to help them fit into a human world in ways the dog will understand.

I look forward to helping others resolve issues and develop a stronger bond with their canine companions.

Profile: Mary works with owners on how to build a more positive bond with their dog, which in turn leads to a better behaved companion.

By building engagement between the dog and the owner, Mary lays a foundation that allows other learning to take place. This thoughtful approach will do wonders in helping the dog focus on you and make learning the basic commands of sit, stay, leave-it, down,come and loose leash walking a joy for both the owner and the dog.

The end result is that a positive learning relationship exists. This is the key link in establishing continued learning between you and your companion.

The system Mary uses is primarily reward based training.There is an emphasis on marking the behaviors that you like while re-enforcing the positive relationship that you have with your companion.

Mary's training includes motivational techniques based on the primary drive of each dog using food, play, toys, and praise with the thoughtful appropriate application of aversion.

To get started in building that best friend relationship contact Mary Hirt.

Profile: Expert dog trainer, Anthony Silva has loved animals, especially dogs, since childhood.
His love for animals and passion for rescuing and training led him to become a professional dog trainer.

It was 15 years ago that he discovered this passion when he rescued two Smooth Fox Terriers that came with a myriad of behavioral issues he had to fix.

Over years of training experience, seminars, and certification through Animal Behavior College, Anthony has honed his skills and developed user-friendly dog training principles, C.O.R.E. (Consistency, Once, Rewards, Exercise). These principles take the second guessing and confusion out of dog training and help people become the trustworthy, benevolent leader their dog needs.

An avid animal advocate, Anthony donates his training expertise to rehabilitate dogs in Los Angeles for Karma Rescue and Bark and Bitches so they can find forever homes.

He is also a mentor trainer for Animal Behavior College's Externship Program.

Profile: Arrow Dog & Puppy Training

I'm Lori Barnabe, founder of Arrow Dog and Puppy Training. I started Arrow for dogs and puppies of all backgrounds, but I have a particular interest in special needs shelter dogs.

During my years as a County Animal Control Officer and later a Registered Veterinary Technician for a Municipal Animal Shelter, I saw first hand what led former guardians to turn their dogs over to public agencies. I also learned what kind of treatment could turn a dog’s behavior around and get them a second chance at becoming the lovable companions dogs want to be. My goal is to ensure that each dog who attends class at Arrow becomes a cherished and permanent member of their family, and a source of pride for its guardians.

With that goal in mind, before the actual training sessions begin, I develop an individual program for each student; a program that recognizes and considers a dog’s whole environment; physical, emotional, and spiritual. I like to think of this as a “Whole-istic” approach.

To learn more about this approach to good dog behavior, please contact me for a free in-home consultation.

Profile: To me, training is more than just teaching your dog basic commands like "sit" and "stay". It's about teaching dog lovers the importance in understanding dog psychology and how to build an enjoyable canine-human relationship. I do this through creating respect and trust between an owner and his or her dog. Once an owner acknowledges how important of this type of connection is, we are ready to train our dogs and enjoy our canine friends at a much higher level.

I help dog owners in the Antelope Valley hold group trainings on Saturday mornings at local parks in Lancaster, Palmdale, Rancho Vista, Rosamond, Pearblossom, and the Acton area.

If your dog barks excessively, chews on everything, is difficult to take on walks, and seems unteachable, the solution may be easier than you think. Some of these problems can be fixed within a few minutes and a certified dog trainer (like me) can often explain to you why your pet behaves that way and how you can fix the problem.

Profile: Waggin' Tails Day Camp & Pet Boarding

We are the first upscale doggie day camp and pet boarding facility in the Inland Empire. We offer a supervised day camp for dogs of every size and energy level. Dogs that show aggression are not able to play in a group but may be able to board. We also offer overnight boarding. Boarding campers who are appropriate play during the day with other campers and retreat to their kennels for a nap time and then again at night.

Our training facility is on site and we offer numerous options. Along with Puppy Socialization Classes, we offer Basic Obedience, Canine Good Citizen classes and private training.

Kitties are also invited to spend the night in our Kitty Kamp!

Our facility is supervised by staff 24/7 and pets are never left unattended.

Profile: Andee Rivera, also known as Grandma Dee is a certified ABC Dog Trainer, specializing in puppy training.

The best time to start training your puppy is between 8 weeks and 4 months of age. They are little sponges at this time and learn quickly what is expected of them. If they are left to their own means, they will often become impossible to live with; what was cute when they were a pup is no longer cute when they are an adult.

A large percentage of these dogs wind up in a shelter, or worse. Be a good puppy parent.

Profile: Profile: Certified by Animal Behavior College, Taj Panganiban at Nor Cal Dog Academy covers the entire city of San Francisco and daily focusing on reliable obedience, exercise, socialization and attention - all the things that dogs love and make them enjoyable.

Unfortunately when a dog is not mentally/physically exercised or socialized they don’t act in a manner that is appropriate around humans. Nor Cal Dog Academy makes personal and professional effort to improve life quality for humans through their pets by offering stimulation for the dog, and direction for the human.

Learning obedience can be served through group class or private training for specialized need and/or attention. Above all, puppy class is by far the best class as it sets you off in the right direction – an ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of cure.

Nor Cal Dog Academy uses positive reinforcement to increase good behavior and control dog behaviors such as barking, chewing and jumping around humans. Positive reinforcement is rewarding the dog with something he likes after he does something you like. It is not always with treats but encompasses all rewards such as walks, attention and acting like a dog - jumping, pulling and barking.

Our group walks are an excellent complement to the training your dog may already have or is receiving - or just a productive way to release energy while you're away as the old proven adage says “A tired dog is a GOOD dog”. You'll be glad to know that our groups are always transported and monitored in a safe, fun way without allowing any bad habits to occur or be reinforced.

Feel free to browse through the site for training tips, recommendations and sign up for training and/or exercise so you can get started on improving the quality of you and your pet’s life!

When you rescue a dog you are getting all the joy and rewards they bring into your life, plus you will see the effects of all of the anxiety, stress, poor training, and too often, mistreatment that has made up their life prior to finding you.

As a mobile dog trainer, let me come to you, your family and your furry friend to help.

I’m can help dogs of any breed or age with a wide range of behavioral issues including:

Housebreaking (potty training?)

Basic commands (Sit, stay, down, come, leave it)

Behavior modifications for the dog that is nervous, aggressive, jumping, excessive barking, separation anxiety, chewing, digging or on your counter looking for food.

I’m mobile and will come to your location in OC County, LA County and parts of the Inland Empire. I’m strictly a positive reinforcement trainer and only use sensible safe training methods and equipment. I will not use choke chains, prong collars or electric shock collars on your dog.

The positive techniques I use create a fun learning experience and help to build a bond of mutual trust and respect between you and your dog.

Profile: I have only just begun my work in the dog training business. From September 2011 to March of 2013, I started and ran my own small scale Pet Sitting and Dog walking business, Pawsibilities Unleashed, LLC, in Albuquerque, NM. Up until then, my time was spent solely as a busy mom- tutoring, entertaining, serving, and volunteering- within the realms of my children's lives.

Along with running my little business, I spent all of 2012 employed as a volunteer Advanced dog walker, a Reception Assistant, A Foster Care Assistant, an Intake Greeter, and an adoptions counselor through Animal Humane New Mexico. In doing so, I was able to both nurture and replenish my love of animals-and dogs in particular- that I have carried deep within me since the tender age of six. I have walked every kind of dog from Chihuahuas and Pit Bulls, to Bull Mastiffs and St. Bernard’s. I have bottle fed 3 day old puppies, nurtured injured pets, and spent time building relationships with lonely, broken dogs. Over the past few years alone, my love for animals has unbelievably blossomed to greater heights than I ever imagined.

I am an officially Certified Dog Obedience Trainer through Animal Behavior College, and as such, have completed several continuing education classes through their program, including: "Training shelter dogs" and "Feline Management and Training". These classes have given me both quality education, and insights into the animal world that are meant to greatly enhance human to animal relationships.

I am currently employed at Camp Bow Wow Dog Daycare and Boarding Kennel in Castle Rock, CO as a Dog Daycare counselor, as well as with Canine Dimensions Dog Training as an Associate Dog Trainer.I currently specialize in Puppy Good-Start programs working with puppy owners and first time dog owners and families with children through in-home, private training sessions.

I feel extremely blessed to finally have to opportunity to realize my long-lived dream of training dogs-a dream that I never thought possible after I took the path to motherhood. I plan on living that dream to its full potential and sharing what I know with others in such a way that the world of positive dog training takes on a new meaning for people to whom their pets are their world.

I offer in-home training and problem solving. I am currently being mentored by Gary Wilkes the father of clicker training and one of the most innovative minds in the dog training world today.

Do you have a dog with serious behavioral issues such as aggression towards humans or other dogs or an extremely fearful dog? I can help.

I'm an experienced clicker trainer but I use the entire behavior modification spectrum. My training is specifically tailored to meet the needs of each dog and owner. I believe the entire family should be involved in the training.

I love working with all breeds. I have a special affinity for terriers and dogs with special needs such as deafness or blindness.

Profile: Compassionate Training For Your Best Friend.

Call Us Today!

Does your dog need to brush up on manners?

Do you have a new puppy who requires training or socialization?

Is your dog exhibiting unwanted behaviors, such as excessive barking, house-training issues, jumping or separation anxiety?

Even the most well-behaved dogs sometimes need a bit of help learning to function in our human culture.

Whether it's basic obedience training or complex behavioral issues, Michelle Panek and QuestHaven Dog Training can help you and your best friend, using positive training methods that are completely force-free.

About the Trainer:
Michelle Panek is a certified professional dog trainer, having graduated from Animal Behavior College with Honors. She also studied Genetics, Zoology and Psychology, and has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology (with Distinction). She has worked with various humane societies and rescue organizations in Colorado and California, helping to make dogs more adoptable through training and behavior modification. She is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT).

A Message From Michelle:
"I believe that as pet owners, it's important that we are caring stewards for the animals that share and enrich our lives. Maybe you've seen or read about certain questionable training methods on TV or in a famous dog training book, or even had them recommended to you by a trainer you've hired. There is never a need to resort to physical punishment or to force your dog to obey. I know from personal experience that it's possible to successfully treat issues such as aggression, separation anxiety, barking, jumping and general unruly behavior with the application of totally force-free methods.

If you prefer an "on the same team" relationship with your best friend, rather than an adversarial one, I can guide you toward that goal. Through the use of positive reinforcement techniques and compassionate behavior management, your dog will learn more efficiently, be happier and gain confidence. As a result, your dog will choose to offer a behavior that you desire - because it's fun to do so! The wonderful bond between you will be strengthened in this way, and you'll enjoy seeing your best friend blossom."

What better way to build your relationship with your dog than through obedience training? Your dog will learn to understand what you’re asking for, and the behaviors you expect. Since we speak a different language from our dogs, learning how to communicate with them provides a relationship of trust, and the tools you will need to become your dog’s leader.

Providing one-on-one private training, we will work together to reach your goals. I will work in great length with you to assure that you have a clear understanding of teaching your dog each command.

In January of 2007, I was fortunate enough to adopt a 10 month male Dalmatian named Squirt. Squirt was returned to the shelter twice. Since then Squirt has successfully learned not only obedience but also learned several tricks to assist in Fire Prevention Training, not only he can stay low, stop, drop and roll, he also gets lost.

Profile: I spent 4 of my 5 years at the Connecticut Humane Society working with the Behavior Modification Group of Volunteers helping with those dogs who might not have been the most adoptable.

We spent our time working on basic manners, social skills and as they stayed in the system, escalated to more specific behavior modification.

I espcially liked working with the shy dogs, those who just didn't trust yet and watch them thrive and become great dogs.

I recently worked with a private rescue group of dogs saved from death from Georgia to Connecticut. The puppies were adopted out quickly but the 3 dogs who needed more time for medical or behavior reasons spent weeks with us as a group where they learned commands very quickly and have all gotten adopted into their new homes.

I also don't believe that allowing your dog on the bed or letting him walk through the door before you weakens your relationship, or makes them the "pack" leader. I'm pretty sure your dog knows you're not a dog. What I know from experience is a good trusting relationship between you and your dog makes living together a pleasure.

I currently specialize in the "bully" breeds including Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans, and more. These breeds have been given a bad rap and that could not be further from the truth. They are loving loyal dogs that deserve a loving stable home.

I will likely join Petco or Petsmart as a trainer when the right opportunity becomes available. As a lifetime dog lover that studied to become a veterinarian, I am very concerned with shelter animal issues.

Ideally, I would like to offer "consultation services" to families for selecting THEIR perfect "pack member" based on lifestyle and expectations. Work to find the perfect dog for a family and then continue with them for a few months to get the family through the awkward first few months of owning a new dog. In a small way, I hope to prevent abandonment of dogs.

I also have an opportunity to work with students at the high school three blocks from me to teach basic training and run AE group classes.

Profile: I love animals and have focused my whole life around them. Animal behavior has always been a passion of mine. Going through ABC has taught me so much about dogs and their behavior. I am getting a degree in animal behavior and hope to pursue marine mammal training and rehabilitation as well.

I can offer group and private lessons for basic obedience. My methods are through positive reinforcement. My goal is to make your dog a calm and obedient family pet. I believe any dog can be trained. In reality I'm not training the dog, I'm training the owner. :)

Profile: ​I am a graduate of Animal Behavior College where I earned my certification as an ABC Certified Dog Trainer. Animal Behavior College (ABC) is approved by the Bureau for Private Post-secondary and Vocational Education and is an internationally recognized school.

My year long commitment to this program has provided me with a formal education in canine obedience training and understanding behavior, its motives and how to modify behavior utilizing positive reinforce methods.

My certification, education and experience provide me the skills required to effectively and positively train you and your dog to better your relationship and to build a life time bond with your canine best friend.

I am especially interested in helping shelter dogs or recently rescued dogs, preparing them for life in a new forever home.

Profile: I am a graduate of Animal Behavior College as well as a full member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers.

I do private in-home visits and work with the owner to help solve the dog's behavior problem(s) using positive reinforcement, patience and leadership techniques.

I encourage the use of treats, toys and affection to help motivate the dog and also try to make training entertaining and fun for the dog owner.

I work primarily in St. Augustine, Florida but also provide services in the Manistee, Michigan area a few months out of the year.

The training equipment I prefer are buckle collars, Control Ease and Holt head collars, Easy Walk harnesses, Halti Harness, Martingale collars and, if necessary, Pinch collars.

On occasion I offer group classes through local rescue and shelter organizations in St. Augustine, Florida and Manistee, Michigan with part of the fee going to the rescue or shelter.

I also started a free dog walking club called Be A Pack Leader Dog Walking Club over 5 years ago and anyone is welcome to join us. It's a great way to socialize your dog and get exercise too.

In February 2012 I established a unique Be A Pack Leader Dog Training Scholarship Program to provide training for dogs and their owners who need a chance to solve behavior problems.

In June 2012 we partnered with the St. Augustine Humane Society to issue these scholarships.

Profile: Before becoming a dog trainer, I volunteered with rescue groups and individuals to help find homes, refuge, transport or spay/neuter options for those in need. It was always so fulfilling to know that you really could make a difference, even if it was one dog at a time. Over my years of volunteering, I adopted 4 of my foster dogs and ended up creating my “Pack of 5.” Realizing that adopting was just not enough, I became interested in making my dogs better by using positive reinforcement techniques to shape their behavior.

My belief is that an effective dog trainer will coach people on how to train their dogs. When I saw how a skilled trainer can really communicate with a dog and learned about the scientific basis for it, I was hooked and I became a certified trainer.

My mission is to teach owners to communicate with their pets and be able to alter an undesirable behavior. Experience the joy of a happy and polite dog in your life.

Helen Sutton has learned almost as much from dogs as they have from her in more than 30 years of training and working with companion animals. Along with obedience training, Helen has done extensive work with behaviorally challenged dogs.

Her methods are continually evolving as she intuitively senses moods and emotions and tailors training to meet the needs of each individual dog. Helen’s methods are well researched, and a proven approach to therapeutic dog behavior training that includes training “games”, basic leadership rules and a variety of methods for effective communication.

While working with Helen you will learn to recognize the Five Signs of Stress, Tension Patterns, Calming Signals and the most effective ways of identifying and eliciting the desired drive response (pack, prey or defense) from your dog.

Additionally you will learn effective techniques for leash pulling, separation anxiety, house breaking and dog aggression for all ages and breeds

"Helping Man's best friend become family"

Hi my name is Mark Alten I am the owner of Alten Dog Training, I have been involved in some kind of animal training since I was 12 years old. My two brothers and I are master falconers and have enjoyed training and hunting with hawks and falcons for many years. Many falconers use dogs in the field and I was frequently drawn to why some dogs worked well and some didn't.

I later found out it all had to do with the quality of training the dog received. This led me to helping everyday people provide their dogs with the proper training so they can become valuable family pack members.

Call me anytime with any questions or inquiries.

Phone: 208-660-6803
ginadougall@yahoo.com
 
Profile: As a certified dog trainer, I believe you can achieve the results you desire through the use of gentle and positive training techniques. Such techniques ensure that your puppy or dog is neither frightened nor stressed during training. Puppies exposed to frightening or stressful situations are more prone to develop aggression and other behavior problems later in life.

Training is a method of changing a behavior using rewards that will drive the behavior in the direction that you would like it to go. One must realize that a dog will do what works for them not you. If you utilize this fact, you can have them do what works for you. Thus, you reward the behavior you want rather than try to punish after the fact what you didn't want.

Helping your dog learn to make rewarding choices

We specialize in “Train n Walks” - we train your dog as we walk


Serving:
Plainfield

Romeoville
Crest Hill
Shorewood
Southern Naperville

Robyn Monaghan is a CERTIFIED DOG TRAINER graduating from Animal Behavior College ( link, please http://www.animalbehaviorcollege.com/) . She specializes in work with reactive dogs - dogs that have problems interacting with humans and other dogs. As a volunteer at the Will County Humane Society, Robyn works with shelter dogs on family manners to help them succeed at finding and keeping good homes.

Yay saying, not nay-saying
Can you imagine never saying “no” to your dog? We can. And we don’t. If we had our way, no pup would ever hear “No! No! Bad dog!” again. That’s the concept behind our company name.

At Yes! Yes! Good Dog! We know that all pup problems can be solved using only positive reinforcement. It’s all about helping a dog make rewarding choices by saying yes at exactly the right moment. We rely on shaping - catching the dog doing what we want her to do – lying quietly, coming when we call, walking beside us without pulling on the leash. Then we say “yes” by rewarding that behavior with the things the dog loves most, whatever that may be - treats, pets, car rides, and playing fetch.

Being a good dog can be a good time. We work to build a trust connection by setting an example as a fair and reliable pack leader, not a bully. We build willing cooperation for a gratifying working relationship with each pooch. We want dogs to be happy behaving themselves. We set pups up to be good at being good. Dogs are like people in some ways. They want a job to do and they want to be successful at it.

Sound like bones on the brain beliefs? Prepare to be amazed at how fast saying “yes” works and you’ll be nodding your head, too.


How we can help
Yes! Yes! Good Dog! offers train n’ walks, standard daily walking, pet sitting and in-home training at rates you will find hard to beat. We’re here to help you out, not to shake you down.

No matter which service fits your needs, your pet will reap the rewards of a fun, positive environment and interaction. To make the experience even better, we can supply a buddy for your buddy. Our companion dog, certified with Therapy Dogs International, can keep your dog company on walks or visits.

I also can help owners build a better relationship to the point where their dogs will ignore other dogs and focus on their owners.

I have one dog name Cooper, he is an Australian Shepherd mix. When I got him from the shelter he was a shy dog with no self confidence. With my skills he now knows all kinds of cues and tricks.

I have built a mutual trust with him and he is now a dog agility star in the making.

I will gladly help any dog and dog owner with problems they want to diminish.

Profile: I have been working with animals and their owners for many years and there is nothing which satisfies me more than to see a happy pet and a happy owner! My first love was horses. I have owned, trained, and worked at a horse hospital. I became very rounded in the mental and physical health of these beautiful creatures.

But I knew that it was my dog that was my best friend and I wanted to help other people enjoy their dogs just as much I do.

Now dogs are my focus and passion. I want to create a healthy loving home like mine.

My mission is to help each dog and owner communicate more effectively. Since there is not a common language, it is my job to create a bridge between the two. This understanding of canine behavior allows me the ability to "speak dog".

I can translate feelings, actions, motivations that our dog cannot share with us. Training then becomes fun and something the dog and owner look forward to! It becomes a time of bonding that helps strengthen a relationship. Then your dog can really become a member of the family, working with you and working for you. You can show off a well-behaved dog to friends or work towards obedience competitions like me.

Whatever you’re looking to do to further your relationship with your dog; I am here to help take both of you to that next level.

*Where No Dog Is Left Behind*

I've been saving animals ever since I was little. I was one of those kids who would always come home and say "daddy can I keep him?"

While most of the time the answer was no the answer you can't save them all always came with the response.

Now while this is true, I'm getting a big head start on making a difference. I love animals big and small and would love to help those who need it with training, problem solving, aggression, pet sitting, and much more.

Let me know if there is anything I can do for you.

I love to focus on behavior problems and the proper socialization of puppies so they have a great start in life and can be part of the family.

I do a lot of training with rescue dogs and most of the problems I come across are due to the dog's original owner not being educated. So, I love to meet with the families first without the dogs so we can discuss what their goals are and what they want out of their training with me.

Before you re-home or euthanize Paws On Perfection.

The goal of training with Paws on Perfection is obedience through respect. Once you have your dog's respect, you will find that your dog will actually choose to follow your commands. Anyone can force a dog to obey but it takes a true leader to lead from respect. We can teach you how to be that leader. Paws on Perfection uses a combination of clicker training with leadership exercises to ensure you and your dog have a happy, balanced life together.

I know from first-hand experience the difference that dog training can make in the relationship between a dog and his/her owner. Without professional training, it can sometimes be a frustrating relationship.

With an investment in good training, the bond between a dog and human is stronger and behavioral issues can be effectively managed or erased.

My formal canine obedience training and years of professional experience provide me the skills required to effectively and humanely train your dog.

My training sessions are flexible to accommodate your schedule and preferred location.

I look forward to showing you how to make training fun for both you and your dog!

Profile: I have lived or worked with animals for most of my life.

I recently relocated from New York where, as well as acquiring my ABC certification and working in the dog training field,

I worked as a veterinary assistant for six years and did quite a bit of pet sitting.

What pet sitting and training have in common (aside from allowing me to hang out with animals) is that they both provide me the opportunity to help ease the stress and guilt many people have these days surrounding their pets.

Whether these feelings stem from long work hours or a persistent, unwanted behavior in a dog, they can erode our relationships with our pets.

Now, with Grand Pet Care and Training, I aim to help restore peoples' relationships with their pets to their full potential.

I am a dog lover, dog groomer, a dog trainer, and AKC boxer breeder. I know from first-hand experience the difference dog training makes in the relationship between dog, his owner, and his groomer. Without professional training it can sometimes be a frustrating relationship, but with an investment in good training a wonderful transformation will occur.

I have been working with dogs and their owners for many years and there is nothing which satisfies me more than to see a happy dog and a happy owner!

Profile: Boston WoofWorks! Teaching Life Lessons to Dogs and Their People

Graduating Animal Behavior College with honors in 2003 as a Certified Dog Trainer has given me unlimited opportunities. I’ve taught both group and private, basic through advanced classes at one of the North American pet superstores - five days a week, three to six classes a day of up to twelve puppies and dogs, for two years. If you are looking for a trainer with experience, I definitely qualify.
I wouldn’t dare say I’ve seen it all, but I’ve seen A LOT and nothing surprises me! I’ve learned some important things – that every dog and owner can learn and live together happily and there are NO BAD DOGS! Dogs are as different as you and me, and to account for these differences, training takes flexibility and an open minded approach. There is more than one way to train your puppy and I am always up for trying something new. Since I own WoofWorks!, I make the rules and I can approach each person, dog, and situation with the unique attention they deserve.

Due to personal reasons, I’ve not been able to fully focus on promoting my canine consulting business, Boston WoofWorks! I am, however, still happily accepting clients in both the Boston and Worcester areas and look forward to training as an escape from the chaos of my current situation. After working with me, I am confident that you will also look forward to the time you spend with your dog as both stress relieving and mood boosting. Having a pet is supposed to be fun, right?

I offer private in-home training for puppies and adult dogs at affordable prices. My methods are based on the positive reinforcement methods I mastered at Animal Behavior College and with other advanced study and certification.
Please contact me by e-mail or telephone for additional information.

My doggie day care business is located on 6+ acres at my residence. 3+ acres are fenced in, broken into 5 separate yards. Day care doggies get integrated into my pack and play all day. They go home smiling, happy, and covered in mud! I also work with dogs that have separation anxiety, fear and aggression issues, etc., and I love to be a facilitator in a dog’s rehabilitation. My pack really does all the work in helping a dog be a dog again. Too many humans have humanized their dogs to the point that the dogs have forgotten how to be dogs and how to have healthy interaction with other dogs. So, my guys straighten them right out and help them remember what it’s like to be in a pack again. (After all, they were born in a pack!) Before you know it, they’re running, romping and having lots of fun! Also, they become much more manageable, stable, balanced and peaceful at home, which makes for happier humans in the household.

I always wanted to know why they do what they do, I wanted to understand their

way of thinking, so I could communicate with them. It was a natural transition for me to choose a career training dogs.

After reading about The Animal Behavior College being a state accredited college,

I knew it was the right place for me. I really enjoy helping other dog lovers figure out how to solve the problems with their own dogs.

I'm so excited about being a Certified Dog Trainer Instructor

Profile: I have always had a strong passion in caring for animals since I was very young, I always thought I wanted to be a Veterinarian when I was a small child and the older I got the more interested I became with different personalities and temperaments of animals.

After High school I went to College to study animal medicine before finding my job at The Dog House, I was hired as a daycare coach in which I got to spend my day caring and playing with dogs. Soon after starting my new job I was really getting into and enjoying all the dogs I worked with and their different personality types.

I decided with-in a year of working at The Dog House that I really wanted to do something with dog training, but I couldn't give up my job to go to school, I wanted to do both.

I did some online research and found ABC college and decided it was the right place for me. It was a place that I could keep my job and better my education in animals at the same time.

I am now the Daycare/Boarding Manager at The Dog House as well as the Certified Trainer.

I truly enjoy spending my time helping other dog lovers like myself better understand their Furry Friends!

I have loved and worked with dogs all my life, and after almost 30 years as an OB nurse, I decided to make a career change! Working with patients and their families requires empathy, good listening skills and problem solving abilities.

Working with people and their dogs involve these things too!

I have worked with trainers over the past ten years training Service Dogs. Right now I am fostering and training a Yellow Labrador puppy named Jackson to be a service dog. I'll have him for about two years before he gets placed with a disabled client.

I really liked the balanced approach that ABC teaches. Really focusing on the positive ways to train a dog is what people want to do with their beloved companions. After all...they are "man's" best friend!

Profile: Profile: My mentality when starting my career in dog behavior training was simple and pure. The Dog Whisperer of MN's focus is on helping and saving families and the dogs in them no matter what. I am compassionate about our canine companions and always find a way to make your home the forever home for your dog. I will not give up on you and promise to be diligent in motivating you to teach your dog to become balanced and calm and become the loving and loyal pet he is underneath the negative behaviors.

I'm passionate about educating the current dog owner and the future one about how to achieve balance in any breed of dogs, for the greatly misunderstood pit bull breed or the popular Doodle breeds, for adult humans on responsible ownership and kids how to treat or approach a dog and hoping to imprint the importance of dog safety, while striving to make the world dog savvy and responsible.

As the local expert in aggressive dog behavior, I am dedicated to continually evolve my approach as I continue to gain more and more experience with every dog I rehabilitate. It is rewarding to know that I provide people a source of relief as my unique philosophy begins with an understanding that no dog is inherently bad or too far gone. My focus is on the people and empowering them by teaching them how to train and rehabilitate dogs by mastering their subtle conversation of body language and energy. Allowing open communication during key points of escalation, so you can disagree with negative reactions assertively and confidently. This effectively rebuilds the relationship with a solid foundation, built with trust and respect.

My niche in the dog world isn't about force or reward. It's about utilizing a dog's instinct to do what they do best, follow you to the end of the earth, lovingly, Loyal and selflessly.

My pit bull Cesar is my best friend. Always there, thick and thin. Lilly too.
Cesar is a pitbull and to me, my son.
This isn't just a career, this is a lifestyle.

Why The Dog Whisperer of MN? Since behavior issues come in many forms from small quirks to serious aggression; over the years have mastered a deep understanding behind social behavior and interactions which I describe as your dog's conversation. Some of these things can be generalized into different categories of behavior, which can be misleading. This is what makes, "The Dog Whisperer of MN", the very best choice for dog behavioral rehabilitation. Using my creative and unbiased approach, I will walk you, the owner through the process step by step and explain what the behavior is and exactly how it can be fixed then teaching you how to master and put into practice the techniques. I always show patience and teach owners how to correct a dog(s) behavior from an instinctual standpoint with focus on communication allowing your dog(s) and you to understand. I will help you fully understand what is going on as well as lighten the mood making through casual enjoyable conversation and relating dog behaviors to goofy human situations and examples you wouldn't think about, then realizing how related it is. You will not only be educated and very helpful, but you will have FUN too!

I have the experience to rehabilitate all dogs and the personal skills to teach any owner the art of dog psychology. A real dog behaviorist, real results, a real dog lover.

Before you spend 100's to 1000's on a person who will tell you your dog can't/won't change, join the hundreds of happy owners and their dogs by creating happy balance with your pack with me, Robert Cole, The Dog Whisperer of MN, by mastering my philosophy and learn to utilize the tools needed to build an effective and positive relationship with your dog.

I specialize in nuturing the human-dog bond, addressing animal behavior problems and providing basic obedience instruction. I provide in-home private training.

As a former life coach, I draw upon my expertise to create a supportive environment in which your expectations and concerns can be openly discussed. Individual behavior problems and issues are identified and unique behavioral modification plans are developed.

I work closely with you and your dog to create the bond you desire. This is done by teaching you how to utilize positive reinforcement techniques - and to think like your dog - to get the results you seek.

I am located just South of St. Louis, Missouri.

Profile: TRAIN, DON'T COMPLAIN

Using motivational training methods, primarily treat and praise oriented- never chain, prong or "E-collars", you will learn the proper way to train and disipline your pet and at the same time create a bond that will last a lifetime.

Training at an early age is extremely beneficial because puppies are so eager to learn and they retain what they learn. Studies have shown the time between 8 to 18 weeks of age to be the most critical time for a puppy to learn bite inhibition, which is a problem for many adult dogs.
We offer classes for all dogs; young, old and in between.

Classes include puppy training, family dog training, beginning agility and competition agility. We also offer a variety of specialty classes including trick classes, rally obedience and competition obedience prep work.

All our classes are held at our indoor heated and air-conditioned training facility in Blue Springs, MO., easily accessed from Interstate 70 and 40 Highway.

MISSION STATEMENT
Our mission is to enhance the human-dog relationship by
educating owners and advocating dog-friendly training. At the
same time, we endorse continued education and learning
so we may provide instructors of the highest caliber

I have conducted both group and private lessons with puppies and younger dogs on basic obedience. I have worked privately with a few dogs and owners who are experiencing problems such as aggression, lack of control by owner with older dogs, puppy mill dogs and other behavior problems.

I worked with a non-profit organization training shelter dogs with incarcerated youths, which was to continue later in 2009. Due to unforseen changes it did not happen.

AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) tests are provided several times due the year with Spirit of the Heartland Kennel Club. These are provided around Farmington and in Gray Summit at the Purina Event Center during our dog shows. Please contact me for exact dates.

I may be able to help you individually with your problem that could not be solved by basic obedience classes.

Happy Training to You!! Woof- Woof

Profile: Hello everyone! My name is Ally, and I am a 2009 graduate of the ABC Dog Trainer program!

Since my graduation, I have continued to learn and grow by expanding my training knowledge from obedience to dog sports like agility and bird hunting, to canine behavior and learning theory!

I have partnered with some of our best local trainers for hands on experience and will graduate in May 2014 from the University of Montana with a Bachelors in Psychology with a focus in Animal Behavior and learning theory.

After my ABC graduation, I offered private training and consultation part-time under the business name K9 Communications, while still working a full time job and attending University.

In September 2013, I decided the take the plunge and got hired as a Pet Trainer at our local PetSmart. Because of my extensive knowledge and experience from ABC, I went through their certifications and quickly dove in to the complete training curriculum.
I am training approximately 30 hours a week and hope to go full time after my graduation.

My ultimate goal is to work with K9 police dogs and train high level obedience and behaviors.

My philosophy is that training should always be fun, never work, and that the dogs should be as excited about it as their humans are!

Profile: K9 Mountaineer Club

K9 Mountaineer Club is a mobile doggie daycare that also offers dog training. The mobile service comes and picks up your dog and takes him/her along with other dogs to hike or swim for the day.

Our training services use clicker training as our primary method of training. It is the most effective and easy method and is also fun for the dog and the owner. We also address problem solving issues. Puppy classes and adult classes run every five weeks.

Profile: Angel's Friends K-9 Training

I teach basic obedience classes on the Seacoast of NH (some of ME and MA). Depending on the exact location, I do not mind traveling a bit. Upon considering the best environment for the owner as well as the dog, I offer private and/or group lessons. I provide a customized Treatment Plan for our training goal(s). If you should need a pet sitter, walker or transporter I can also help with that. I do Tri-State area rescue work, so I am also involved with placing and training "rescue" dogs. I also volunteer at a local shelter working with "shelter" dogs.

Profile: Our pets are family! If you’re like me, you will do anything and everything to keep your dogs happy and healthy. That's what I am here for. Not only will I train you and your dog; I can also help out with practicing and exercising your dog during the day! The right amount of exercise is critical to training a dog. Who better to do it than the one that can help reinforce those rules!

I have been around difficult to train breeds my whole life. I grew up with Chow Chows; and currently have two wild Shiba Inus. They are amazing dogs but more often than not can become aggressive, and territorial. By starting training early and often, this can prevent bad behaviors from forming! Exercising your dog is one of the easiest ways to prevent bad behavior. The more tired the pup is, the more relaxed and content they become.

I combine numerous amounts of techniques to help you and your dog become a balanced pack. From puppy training to trick training I'm here to help you and your pup succeeds!

So don't look any further. Contact me for more details!

Profile: With passion, care, and positive training techniques I'm here to help you build a strong relationship with your four-legged family member.

Our pets need leadership and guidance just as our children do. By understanding how to communicate with your dog you will learn how to develop that leadership role that will bring you the bond that both you and your dog desire.

With my training techniques, we will be able to start the behavior modification or obedience training while you are able to finally decipher what your dog has been trying to communicate to you.

By understanding their body language you will be able to read their emotions and see their limits, thus helping you understand your dog's needs, guiding YOU to become the leader that your canine requires.

Please feel free to contact me so I can assist you in starting your journey into understanding your canine friend and how to use that knowledge to succeed in your companion's behavior and obedience needs.
