Powers K-9 Dog Training
I am so impressed with how quickly and easily David was able to train my min pin (and me)! After years of struggling to enjoy our little one we are now able to spend much more fun time together. Within a few minutes David had her calm and attentive and ready to have fun with us as a family. She is now a pleasure to walk and to live with instead of a chore. I no longer have to dread taking her with me places for fear that we will have a constant tug of war or that she might nip a passerby. One session is all it took and I have a much happier and playful pup! Highly recommend!!!!!
David was great with my pups. I treat my dogs like m children and I was concerned about their safety. The most mportant thing a pup can learn is to sit and stay. Those two things can keep them safe and out of trouble. Within ten minutes my baby had learned ths!!! I recommend david to anyone with a new puppy or older dog that they care about.
Fantastic! David Powers is a miracle worker! The most impressive thing about David is his flexibility and willingness to accomodate busy schedules. David came to our home to work with my 5 month old Boston Terrier, Gus. He utilizes very simple tactics and makes it look easy. Gus responded immediately to Mr. Power's commands and I couldn't be happier. I have worked with him every day since our initial training session and my puppy is a whole new dog!
Mr. Powers is a fabulous dog trainer. He worked with my 4 month old Lab and 3 year old Daschund. What a difference. I can now walk them both at the same time and they stay right along side of me. My Daschund had an issue with barking at everyone and going crazy over other dogs. Not anymore. Thank you so much Dave, you are such a lifesaver. BTW, My Lab doesn't attack the ice machine anymore :0)
Mr. Powers came out to our house this evening to work with our two dogs, a Yellow Lab (4 yrs. old) and an English Springer Spaniel (18 months old). Our Yellow Lab was impossible to walk on a leash, more walking us than us walking him. Mr. Powers had him walking right alongside us within minutes! With simple commands, he has shown us how to work with our dogs productively to heel, sit, stay, down, etc. Both of us, and our dogs, were very impressed with his training, and we would recommend him to anyone interested in having a very well behaved pet! One command, 2 seconds praise. Thanks again, David!
My family just got our first dog and wanted to do it right from the start. First off we got our dog (Lexi) from our local humane society. She is seven months old and she is a terrier mix. She is a typical high energy curious little puppy but, also sweet and gentle with the kids. I wanted to try and get her trained right away from someone local and one on one. I found David Powers of Powers K9, after checking out his website and seeing his past military history with training dogs I gave him a call. David made it easy as could be and was able to work with my family's busy schedule. He came to our house and had us impressed in only a few mins. He made it very simple and easy. Within just a very short time frame he had our dog sitting and waiting out our command. He made it fun for our whole family and had my 6 and 3 years old boys in on the training too. It was a pleasure and I suggest anyone looking into a dog trainer to call David Powers!!!!
Mr. Powers did just what his website said he would. He trained our two dogs in 75 to 90 minutes. Very simple instructions for my wife and I to follow that both our dogs, a rat terrier and a rotterman, understood immediately. Training was conducted on the street in front of our house with other distractions, other dogs being walked and such. I am very pleased with the service Mr. Powers delivered and would recommend him without hesitation if you want to have a better relationship with your four legged best friend.
Dave's great humor made the learning fun. What amazes me the most are all the night and day improvements we see in our dog from just a few minutes with the dog. For example, walking our dog was a test of endurance. Before Dave taught us how to properly walk him, he would his weight to drag us in the direction he so wished. A workout needless to say. Applying the methods he taught us he now walks along of us. This in turn has made walking the dog quiet enjoyable instead of the chore it was. This is just one of many examples.
I would recommend Dave's obedience service to anyone who wishes to change any dog's undesirable behavior for the better.
I work with an animal rescue & Dave Powers came out and spend the afternoon working with a few of our dogs. His methods are simple & easy to remember. He managed to get a volunteer to walk a dog on a leash who she was scared of. She and the dog are friends now. I would recommend his services to anyone.
We adopted a dog around four months ago from the local humane society. We were really excited to have gotten such a beautiful pooch. The past three months have been a nightmare because we have had such a hard time trying to train "the big guy". I finally gave up and called Powers K9 business for help. Dave came out to our house and worked with us for over an hour. Within the first fiften minutes my fiance and I were in shock with what Dave was able to get our dog to do (sit, stay, walk on leash without dragging him to the ground). We went through many scenarios so there wouldn't be any suprises for us when Dave left. Our neighbors came out and watched the training and they were even amazed.
It has been several days now and the dog has been 100% better. A quick suggestion...don't let your dog run your life. If you see them getting out of control, go ahead and give Dave a call (he'll come over anytime). It is 100% worth it1
Great job! I couldnt believe what Dave got my dogs to do. I was amazed as I watched his technique. Where did my dogs go? The two dogs that he left me with only look like the dogs he started with, totally changed, absolutely for the better, when he left. I recommended him to my boss!
Mr. Powers, really helped me learn and showed me how to work with my 14 week old Ridgeback puppy. He was very efficient and worked with the whole family. I would tell everyone I know to use him, cause he is good at what he does, way better then any other dog trainning.
Mr. Powers took our problem children and taught them how to respond to our commands and actions. We have two shelter rescues that we have tried every trick in the book with, always to no avail. One of the two had even worked with a trainer at the shelter, but learned that bad behavior could be ignored (would that have worked if your parents did it to you?), and so didn't ever really catch on to when something was or wasn't okay. Both dogs have been very hyperactive, and were definitely leash-tuggers.
The youngest, a 45 pound boxer, could never sit still and pulled and jumped like a madman on her leash during walks. This morning, at 38 weeks pregnant, I was able to walk her for the first time without my husband's help. Mr. Powers was just here 12 hours ago!
He will not be bullying your dogs, or using insane tactics like barking or growling back at them, like some other trainers and big corporate scammers will - he will teach you some commands, and then help you teach your dogs how to respond to your words and actions. It couldn't be easier to learn or employ his method.
The price you pay will be incredibly fair. We would have paid more with the kind of results we have seen already! This is a professional person who put a lot of care into working with us and our dogs. Another plus - he's very personable, we had fun with him and the pups while he was here. But the results are the big sell - in an hour and a half, he did what we have not been able to do in many months. If you need help with your dog, this is the man to call!
I hired Mr. Powers to train our german shepard puppy. He trained him with the basics in just one day! I thought it could never work but it did. I take our dog to pet smart and people always demand to know who trained him. Our dog was trained at three months old. He is almost seven months now. I have never needed additional training! I have to say powers k9 is the best trainer I have come to meet. If I ever get another dog I would use Powers K9 again and I would highly refer anyone to him. He was great and realy knew how to get him trained fast!
