Dog Training Review by Toni C.

Sparky was Dog Aggressive

Testimonial by Toni C for Sparky

As many of Ralf’s clients have stated, we saw a significant change in our dog Sparky after just one session. Yesterday, after just six sessions, Sparky “graduated.” Those sessions with Ralf transformed not only Sparky but us as well. Frankly, my husband and I needed the training as much, if not more, than Sparky did. We learned about dog psychology (pretty fascinating) and what was happening in Sparky’s brain. He was picking up on MY anxiety and acting out on our walks. He used to bark, growl, and lunge at people and dogs we would meet – very embarrassing.

Now, he barely acknowledges them. I feel much more competent as a dog owner now, and when we go on our walks, I feel confident and in control. When we go in or out of a door, he waits for me to go first. Because you see, I am now the PACK LEADER. All this is thanks to Ralf. He was wonderful to work with – besides being extremely knowledgeable, he is very interesting, personable, and quite a funny guy. He REALLY knows dogs, what they need, and what you can do to help them. We would recommend him to anyone needing help with their dog. Thanks, Ralf.

We are experienced, professional dog trainers. Ralf has trained over 1500 dogs in over 18 years, and Sarah has trained over 1200 dogs in over 11 years. Consequently, we can help you with any dog training goal.

For many of our clients, we train their dogs from puppyhood, getting them off to a great start. However, we also have extensive experience training rescue dogs from all imaginable backgrounds and circumstances. Our Board-and-Train program is our most popular.

We can help you, regardless of your dog's challenges or training goals. Being a professional dog trainer means having experience, knowledge, and skill. Further, we developed a highly effective training program to specifically help fearful dogs gain more confidence and become the best possible version of themselves. Building Confidence is our second most popular training program.

Last but not least, we are experts in dealing with all types of aggression in dogs and are often the trainers of last resort after many other programs have failed. Most of our aggressive dog clients previously spent significant money on half-baked solutions without much improvement. This is different from us. We will give you an honest assessment of what goals are realistic for your dog. We will tell you what can be resolved reliably and what likely needs to be managed before we start.

Our flagship product is our board and train program. But our virtual dog training and coaching services have become quite popular over the last couple of years. Our setup enables us to deliver online dog training services from our indoor and outdoor training areas. This allows us to help clients worldwide.
