I honestly cannot say enough amazing things about At Attention Dog Training. We have a 90 lb female Doberman, Rosie, who is fearful of strangers (people-especially males and dogs). Walking her or taking her anywhere was a nightmare and I was always so anxious. She would bark, lunge, her hair would go up and it was scary! I knew we needed help since she is such a big and strong dog, I worried I wouldn’t be able to hold her when I walked her. I honestly thought that she would just be a dog who can’t be around other people or be in different environments. Beside from her being fearful, she is very obedient and loyal. We have worked with A LOT of dog trainers and she was in training since she was a puppy. Unfortunately, she had some traumatic experiences (being attacked by off leash dogs) which added to her fearfulness, but none of the previous dog trainers had ever mentioned her red flag behaviors and how we might want to look into a private dog trainer- until we met Dave.Read More
We had such a great experience during our one-on-one training series with Trainer Lesley! We accomplished exactly what we set out to do and Lesley broke it down for us to make all of our desired behaviors very easy to practice and master. We were even able to let our girl off leash during a doggie play date at an open park and were so pleased to be able to successfully utilize the recall skills that we learned and practiced! We highly recommend At Attention for dog training!
We initially enrolled our puppy in a 6 week class at Petsmart, but we weren't totally satisfied with the level of training - we wanted something more for our pup. It wasn't until a few weeks into that class that we heard of At Attention. A coworker had seen the van in her neighborhood and suggested looking into it. I'm glad we did!! We had looked at other companies, but their programs offered much less, at a much higher price.
You can really tell that the trainers at At Attention are highly educated on dog behavior and that they care about their dog and human customers. They use force free, pain free, fear free methods for their training. Our pup recently graduated from the Puppy Bootcamp class and will be starting the advanced class in a couple weeks. We can't wait!
Do yourself a favor and skip the cheap pet store classes and check out At Attention for your training needs! Huge thanks to trainers Katherine and Lesley for all you do, and to Dave for serving our country and for starting such an amazing company! 5 stars for all of you :).
At Attention Dog training has exceeded every expectation I could have imagined. With a brand new puppy and not having much training knowledge, my boyfriend and I wanted to make sure we got the best training to start our puppy off on the right paw! The entire staff is so friendly, helpful, and very very knowledgeable. From the moment Leslie came to assess our home I knew this was the best place to get training. As a new parent I naturally had a TON of questions and there was never a time the staff wasn’t there to help! Every first Saturday of the month there is also puppy play, which is amazing for your puppy! We live in the city so the commute was tough, but that’s how amazing the training was and we are looking into doing the advanced class. If you are looking for not only a friendly staff, but most importantly knowledgeable, PLEASE make your way to At Attention Training. You and your fur baby will be very happy and satisfied 😊 thank you for all you did for Bruno, Justin, and I.
When we got our puppy, Turbo, we wanted to make sure that he got the best training possible. I did extensive research on training programs in the area, but nothing came close to At Attention. From the very start, I felt welcomed, listened to and cared about.
As first time puppy parents, we had A LOT of questions. Every single one of our questions were answered by one of the amazing staff members with such an in depth explanation so that we could understand it and so that we can use what we learned at home.
The Puppy Boot Camp program that we completed gave Turbo a solid foundation that we were able to build off of! The commands that Turbo learned during the training program have truly made our lives easier. We use them on a regular basis! My favorite command that Turbo learned was "TOUCH" because now we are confident that he will come every single time he is called to "TOUCH."
I can not speak highly enough about the staff at At Attention. They have treated Turbo like one of their own since we started coming there. They truly care about the puppies that attend and are not just there to do a job. They are there because they care and are passionate about dogs and about their mission.
If you are considering coming to At Attention to train your puppy/dog, then look no further! This is the place to go!
