I have a miniature poodle who was 10 plus years old; although he knows many tricks, he was lacking in the discipline area as to who the person is charge was. I would always tell him to 'watch the house' and 'he was the boss'...he actually believed it. Well, Nichole helped me tremendously by helping me gain that authority back; teach him to walk with leash and to socialize with other dogs. She was wonderful with him, knew what his actions meant and how to teach me to be assertive. My dog caught on very quickly and he actually respects me now. He is more wonderful than ever and I have Nichole to thank for that and I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend her for whatever need you or your pet may have.
We have had Bob train several of our dogs over the years, some have been sweethearts, others not so much! He has an uncanny ability to read both dog and human body language, enough so that the training is super easy to understand, and alot of fun too! His knowledge of dogs and dog behaviors is seemingly limitless and is ALWAYS eager to answer any questions you may have. Not sure what the previous reviewers issues were, but we'd never let anyone else near our dogs! Thanks Bob, keep up the good work!! (give him a 10 star rating if we could!!)
30 yrs experience (18 in shelter). All breeds, all ages. Loves the dogs & understands their language. Great with owners, too. Fun & informative 1st wk lecture. Deals successfully w. serious behavioral issues. Gentle for the sensitive dog, tougher for tougher dogs. Always fair. A lot of fun. Simple basics & puppy social to Adv. 2 , Tracking, & Canine Good Citizenship. Between the 1st wk & the last you will see a huge change in yourself, your dog, & every dog in the room if you do the work & stick with it.
Highly recommend Bob to anyone who will listen. A real straight shooter, we have thoroughly enjoyed all of the classes we've taken with our yr. old Standard, and she can't wait to get to "school" The classes are well run, Bob and his assistants are very helpful and really care about you and your dog. Keep up the good work Bob, and we'll keep sending folks your way-you're the best in the area.
Most knowlegeable, straightforward, and intuitive dog trainer around. A real gem. Full of what he likes to refer to as "useless dog info" but we beg to differ. If you're looking for honest answers to what can sometimes be tough dog questions, look no further. We are fortunate to have his services in this area!
Just finished 2nd set of classes with my girlfriend and our 9 month old lab mix- easy enough, Bob is awesome! There are other places to train, but Bob truly sets the bar for excellence! We'll be back for Adv. classes and would highly recommend Bob to anyone who cares about their dog and the relationship they share.
Bob and his staff are the best! Bob has been in the industry for a long time and has extensive experience; he has probably seen it all. My pooch and I look forward to attending classes with Bob!
Bob is a true professional, compassionate and honest. He runs a top notch program, and we're lucky to have a trainer of his caliber in the Roahester, NY area. Highly recommend.
I loved Alisson. She was awesome with both me AND my dog. We learned so much! I would recommend her to everyone!
