My little Bandit started being aggressive to other dogs, lunging, growling, barking while walking him. I tried all kinds of things and nothing was working. After 2 training sessions with Troy, the walk was so much easier. My Bandit even walked between two large dogs - no aggression - no fear - it was wonderful! I've taken him back to the petstores many times and he now ignores other dogs - no lunging - no pulling. Oh, he also used to roll in cat poop (ferals are getting into my backyard) and Troy showed me in a matter of minutes how to stop this - it works! Thank you Troy! ~ Dory Pemberton
Barnaby cowered when anyone tried to pet him, was afraid of his doggy-door and loud noises, and had separation anxiety. He would hear a dog bark or see a person walk in front of the house and go nuts. He lunged and bit a few dogs and even some family members. We went through a few trainers and began to think that nothing could be done. Troy helped Barnaby learn to be off leash and coexist around other dogs and people! Barnaby began sniffing and actually playing with other dogs like a normal, well adjusted dog! He is a calmer, happier dog. Thank you Troy! ~ Darryl & Betty Oesterle
Odie was a mess of poor behaviors, jumping incessantly, lunging at everyone, nipping, and even bit my mother. I was ready to give up. Troy assured me he could help us, yet I wasn’t confident because I didn't have any sort of bond with her. During the consultation, I received a plethora of information about dogs as well as detailed information about Odie. I was overwhelmed and confused, but assuaged by Troy’s knowledge and confidence. Troy said Odie was a ticking bomb and without proper training she would eventually hurt someone. I knew in my heart that he was right. ... [read more]
After our first training session, Odie was no longer jumping on me, attacking my feet, and even stopped eating socks! She was calmer and listening to me! I also learned that my nervousness and anxiety were translating into a nervous and anxious dog. Troy taught me to relax in such a way that my entire attitude – even with my kids! – has evolved into an awareness of how I carry my daily stresses.
Odie is not perfect, but she is SO much better, and our bond has grown. She respects me, listens to me, and I believe loves me in a way that only a dog can love her human. I adore her and am so glad that I invested in Troy’s training. Troy probably saved Odie’s life, and he has enriched mine with lessons that go beyond dog obedience. I now have the dog I was seeking, and my relationship with Odie is stronger for the training experience we shared. Thank you, Troy!! ~ Laura Dix
I was having problems with my French bulldog, Zara, listening to commands, staying off furniture, interactions with other dogs, and walking on a leash. I met with Troy and right away he was able to calm Zara down. I was amazed by how quickly Zara responded to him. Troy was very imformative, discussing dog behaviors and how we affect their behavior. Zara stayed with Troy for 3 weeks and what a difference it made! Now Zara listens to me and she also comes to work with me everyday. Im very happy and I recommend Paws To Train Your Dog for any dog! ~ Abby Abdelfattah
We started training with Troy for our dog Hobbit and we are so impressed with Troy's knowledge, commitment, insight and techniques! He spends as much time educating us as he does Hobbit. We always leave feeling good about what we've learned and look forward to the next session. Thank you Troy for making this world a better place for dogs and their owners! You're the best! ~ Jan & John Petrie
We adopted Bailey, a sweet lovable dog...but only towards humans! She would lunge, growl, and bark at other dogs. Walks were a disaster! After trying some other dog trainers with no luck, we found Troy and enrolled Bailey in the Dogcation Program. Based on the video uploads Troy provided, we saw immediate improvement as she seemed to be happily socializing and playing with other dogs. Troy taught us how to keep her calm and be in control and now that she is home, walks are enjoyable for all parties! We highly recommend Paws to Train Your Dog! ~ Briana & Christopher Dvorchak
