My dog absolutely loved it!
Steve was fantastic. Showed up on time and was extremely informative. My dog absolutely loved it. As a first-time dog owner i felt his lessons were great and I feel more prepared than before. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for training!
Fear of having a new puppy…alleviated today with Steve
The fear of having a new puppy after not having a dog for quite some time was definitely alleviated today with Steve. We just wanted to get it “right” for the little guy and Steve’s patience and advice were highly valuable. Our Jack Russell responded to him immediately. It’s wonderful to know we have a professional in our corner.
Training was interesting, hands on and incredibly helpful
Steve taught us great techniques for living with our dog. Our dog Ranger, is 4 years old but spent at least 3 years in terrible conditions without any training. Ranger has serious medical conditions and, at first, we just wanted to offer him a happy life for as long as it will be. But it is hard to live with a dog who barks a lot, pulls on the leash and isn’t 100% house trained.
Steve showed us great techniques and thoroughly explained the training. We agreed that it is the people who need to be trained and then the dog will follow. We also appreciated that Steve uses a lot of positive reinforcement and redirects incorrect behavior. In addition, Steve arrived early and was well prepared with information and tools. He had brought a recommended crate and harness, so that it was easy to see what works well.
The three hours were interesting, hands on, and incredibly helpful. Another great thing was having Steve come to our house so that he could adjust techniques for our house, seeing where problems occur and getting a sense of our neighborhood for walking on leash issue. Having Steve train us was a worthwhile investment that will help not only ranger but any other dog.
We’re already noticing our dogs are more responsive and listen
We are highly satisfied with Steve and Curiosity Satisfied Dog Camp. Steve has been beyond responsive, kind and helpful. He came out to work with our dogs and their aggression towards one another and gave us some great training tips and tricks that we cant wait to keep working on. It’s only been a couple of days and we are already noticing the dogs be more responsive and listen to commands and are following our lead. We know there is a a lot of work to do, but thanks to Steve we feel confident that we can make our situation work. We strongly recommend working with Steve.
Excellent insight and hands on training
Steve was right on time and provided excellent insight and hands on training with our new rescue Luke!
His training is enlightening with an abundance of common sense
Steve was wonderful with my dog. His approach to training is enlightening, with and abundance of common sense. I would highly recommend Steve and his service to anyone.
If you really want to do right by your dogs, Steve is your guy!
To say Steve put a spell on my dogs would not give him nearly enough credit. He is prompt, professional, patient and extremely knowledgeable. He taught me canine behavior in order to calmly and effectively train good behavior, on my part and my dogs part. He is an absolute breath of fresh air. If you really want to do right by your canine companions, Steve is your guy to teach you everything you need to know in order to succeed. I look forward to working with him again in the near future, once my pups and I conquer our first chapter. Much appreciated.
I was blown away by how much I gained!
Steve breaks down dog training into easy to digest/understandable analogies and examples. His insight into dog behavior have given us more confidence with our new pup (young adult rescue from a shelter). Not only does he give you the basics though, he teaches you for the future as well with what-if scenarios to set you up for success. I wasn’t sure what I was expecting initially but i was blown away by how much I gained. Now I can see the lifetime support is invaluable. This isn’t dog training in the classic sense, its much better than that and the value for money cant be overstated.
Steve came out to our house and worked with our 15 month old Golden Retriever puppy. He taught us many skills to work and achieve the desired results without yelling or force. It has worked liked a charm and Carson is already starting to listen better. Steve stayed past the time we paid for just so he could answer all our questions and get through everything. He did a great job and we highly recommend him! Thank you Steve!!
Steve was amazing to work with during our VIDEO SESSION
Steve was amazing to work with during our video session. He was so patient with me and my almost 6 month old shihpoo, Coco. He explained things to me that were easy to understand and made sense. He made me feel comfortable and gave great info— he was super fast at responding to my emails during the process and I never felt like I was a bother to him. You can tell he really loves animals and loves what he does. I am very excited and looking forward to a more behaved puppy in the future! I am extremely hopeful now, thanks to Steve. So happy our family chose him! : )
Steve is the one to call for quality dog training
It’s been three weeks since we contacted Steve and received our training. Steve is a very personable man, well spoken and humorous. He explained the “whys” of our dog’s seemingly aggressive behavior and how to get things back on track. As well as changing our dog’s way of thinking, it was necessary to tweak our own behavior and responses to our dog. Calm, consistent and consequence has become our mantra. Our dog is much more likely to follow our commands when our response is calm. He “kennels up” quickly and follows when told “this way”. Biting and snapping behavior has lessened greatly and I’m confident that with our continued instruction, it will phase out completely. Steve is the one to call if you’re looking for quality dog training. He answers all your questions, gives suggestions of how to change your dog’s behavior and stays overtime until you are confident working with his program. We highly recommend Steve!
After one day our dog was calmer, less frustrated and more obedient
Steve was very knowledgeable, clear, quick to respond and eager to help with our situation. He exceeded our expectations. We saw improvement in our dog (Rescued Pitt Bull) immediately. The day after Steve’s visit our dog was calmer, less frustrated and more obedient. Can’t thank him enough for his help!
Steve was very patient with my pups & our chaotic household
Steve was very patient with my pups & our chaotic household. He immediately regrouped any situation that elevated throughout the time he was there & insured that before he left, we were confident in the information/training that he offered. I will be recommending him to all of my friends & family members looking to regain leadership of their pups! Thank you, Steve.
Steve helped me understand how my dog thinks
He was great! He gave me the tools to better control my sweet but overexcited dog. He also helped me understand how my dog thinks and what triggers his behaviors. I definitely recommend him.
Steve was very kind and patient
He explained everything in detail. He was very kind and patient. He is very knowledgeable about how to make a pet and their trainer happy. I enjoyed the experience very much! Thanks so much!
Saw an immediate change in our dog
This was our first experience with a dog trainer and we are so grateful for Steve’s time. He spent so much time explaining our dog’s behavior and why he does what he does. He is very knowledgeable and patient with the process. He answered all of our questions and was thorough with his answers. We have seen an immediate change in our dog and look forward to continued success with his behavior as we put Steve’s recommendations into practice. Thank you, Steve!!!
Steve was amazing
Steve was amazing with not only Emma but also with the older dogs! Emma mastered the stairs in about 20 mins! She is super comfortable in her crate as well! Almost potty trained, no accidents today with being alone almost all day!
We loved working with Steve
We loved working with Steve! He was punctual and showed up right on time and was ready to get started right away. We felt very comfortable letting him know of our challenges with our big guy, Harold, and we were very pleased with all of the information he was able to provide. Even Harold, who is often scared of new people in the house, was comfortable enough around Steve to take a nap while we were chatting… this is not a normal occurrence for Harold as he is usually too on edge with strangers in the house to relax. We have already seen a difference in Harold’s behavior now that we have been implementing the new tactics that Steve explained to us. With consistency on my end with his training, I am confident that Harold’s unwanted behaviors will be a thing of the past in no time. Steve also gave me a great recipe for homemade dog treats which I made and Harold LOVES them! Thank you, Steve!
Steve is definitely a professional
Steve is definitely a professional and we are so glad that we chose to train our puppy with him. After our training session with Steve; it was like we had a completely different dog. Thank you, Steve, for listening to our concerns, for being so patient with us and making sure we were comfortable and confident with everything. We also appreciate that Steve continues to provide support if we ever need it in the future.
After one day with his methods, Ruby is a completely different dog
When I was looking for training for my lab mix Ruby I didn’t feel that she would get anything out of the experience from a franchise pet store so I started my search for dog trainers who knew how to read and work with dogs on a one to one level. Steve came to our apartment and showed us exactly how to handle Ruby. We already had a good base from watching a lot of Ceasar Millan (haha) but we needed more and Steve guided us. Even after one day with his methods, Ruby is a completely different dog. It will take time with her but now we have the confidence she will be a very well rounded dog.
