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.
Love Steve’s methods
Steve came to train my husband and I along with two of our three dogs. The biggest problem we had was barking and overall just not listening. Steve spent about 5 hours with us and by the time he left, the barking was under control, the dogs walked much better behaved and they were overall much calmer. Love Steve’s methods and I think as we practice these we will have the dogs we always wanted. Thank you, Steve!
Steve demonstrated and explained how to handle ALL of our dog concerns
My son contacted Steve because he was leaving for deployment and my husband and I were taking care of his dog for 6 months. I admit I was worried about this obligation and responsibility.
Steve arrived eager to help provide guidance and structure to our new “family”. He systematically demonstrated and explained how to handle ALL of our dog concerns. He was totally engaged with the training and provided valuable insight into canine behaviors and mannerisms.
I highly recommend Steve’s service to anyone who desires more discipline and positive behaviors from his or her dogs. You will become a happier and more confident dog caretaker!.
Already starting to see changes after only a few days
I was eager to get off on the right foot with my newly adopted dog and Steve came highly recommended from the rescue organization. Steve is professional and compassionate towards both dog and owner and was able to give me a timely appointment. I like the implementation of a home visit to help me understand how my dog relates to the home environment and ways to deal with some of the inherent challenges and take advantage of the areas of value. He helped me reinforce some of my own helpful behaviors and provide feedback on those that are less helpful as I interact with my dog. Steve also provides a very good, intuitive lifestyle structure/rules to live by for me to work on with my dog. All of the work is up to me and my dog over the long term, I feel confident that we are off to a good start because of Steve’s guidance. I am already starting to see subtle but important changes after only a few days!
So nice having Steve come to the house
Steve was great! We had just adopted a two month German Shepherd pup (about 3 months at the time of training) and we had questions about how to ensure we trained her properly at an early age. We also have an 8-year-old Pomapoo who is a good dog but needed to be retrained in some ways so that we could set the example of being the ones in charge of both dogs. Steve responded quickly and was able to fit us in for our preferred date/time. It was so nice having him come to the house because we could apply techniques to real life things we were experiencing. He spent a ton of time with us and worked with both dogs. He also had some great suggestions on training leashes/harnesses. They’ve made a huge difference on our walks!
After just a couple hours our puppy was calmer with us
We’re so grateful for Steve’s help! We needed to curb the biting and jumping from our adorable but rowdy puppy before we welcomed our first child in 6 weeks. Steve came over and gently showed us we were unknowingly teaching her some bad habits. After just a couple hours she was calmer with us and more confident on walks. His tips are easy to implement and are already proving to be a lifesaver. Absolutely recommend!
48 hours we are already feeling and seeing a difference
My 2 male french bulldogs were showing signs of aggression towards each other. Found Steve on thumbtack – and I couldn’t be more grateful First – he agreed to come during off hours (which is when my dogs act up). Second – he scheduled us into school. Third – within minutes of meeting our dogs, he assessed the situation and immediately started working with all of us (dogs and humans alike). Two days into working his program you could feel and see a change! I wouldn’t hesitate to hire or invite him into our home again!
Steve was so quick to respond to our distress signal!
The whole family had a great training experience
LunaBelle, Comet and the whole family had a great training experience. We are looking forward to using the training we received to help keep our pups on the right track. Steve is knowledge, kind, and really cares about the dogs.
Amazing how much has improved with our sixteen month old lab
Amazing how much has improved with our sixteen-month-old lab. He walks beside me, waits until I walk out the door and genuinely listens to my commands. Steve is the dog whisperer of Delaware Valley. Thanks, Steve!
Daisy was happy to meet Steve and she responded so well
Steve came to work with my chocolate Labrador Daisy Mae today and he was amazing. Daisy was happy to meet him and she responded so well to him. Steve sat with me first to tell me his philosophy on dog training and to go over his 5 Golden rules. He was so good at explaining everything and wanted to make sure I was comfortable with everything. He brought copies of the 5 Golden Rules for me and extra for family members. We put every rule into practice and then worked on some issues specific to Daisy. He spent so much time making sure we were both getting it and at no time did I feel rushed. He gave me his phone # and email so we could stay in touch.
I really saw improvement in Daisy after he left.
I highly recommend Steve and Curiosity Satisfied Dog Camp to everyone who wants their dog to be their very best!
We are well on our way to a happier and calmer doggie life
Steve was so excellent. He came out on extremely short notice and spent hours with me and my dog, going over not just what to do to train her but why each training tool/technique was important for my dog’s safety and wellbeing, as well as the whole family and neighborhood. I would never have realized how many behaviors I was exhibiting that were giving my dog the wrong message, and thanks to Steve we are well on our way to a happier and calmer doggie life!
I already see a huge difference in my 3 dogs
Steve is a genius, he came to visit us last Saturday and I already see a huge difference in my 3 dogs! I highly recommend Steve to anyone seeking out dog training, or dog behavior issues. He was very kind and very informative. Steve answered all of our questions. Our big shepherd who is not very fond of guest warmed up to Steve by the end of our session, which was a huge shock to my family and I. I am very happy with his services and his advice! Thank You again, Steve, for everything you did for us. Blizzy, Ruble and Penny are all on their journey to share a calm and peaceful home with us thanks to you!
Steve made it easy to understand
I highly recommend this company. We now have the tools to better train our dog Rocky because Steve made it easy to understand why dogs do what they do to get attention.
You can’t go wrong with hiring Steve
Steve is excellent, firm yet gentle, and worked very well with Milo and me. He also is a very nice guy, has reasonalbe rates compared to other pet trainers that I checked into, and gives a lifetime of support. You can’t go wrong with hiring Steve, and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him without any reservation.
Steve is the only trainer I would recommend
Steve had the challenge of working with two dogs at a time, each with his/her own issues. In just a few days, the older dog has lost her habit of barking at us for a variety of reasons. While we realize it will take time, and our own perseverance, to help the younger pup learn how to not be fearful and let us be the pack leaders, Steve gave us the tools and encouragement to succeed. I’ve used 3 other dog training organizations in the Valley and he is the only one I would recommend to others. I have already recommended him to two friends.
I couldn’t believe how much Steve’s approach helped me
People told me my dog had issues that could not be corrected. Steve is a terrific trainer and really showed me that Foxys issues are treatable. I really liked that Steve made sure throughout the entire session I understood everything and was very patient with me and Foxy who struggles with aggressive behaviors.
Steve is an expert and I couldn’t believe how much his approach helped me and my dog Foxy. There is still a lot of work to do but I am on the right track since working with Steve and I couldn’t be more satisfied!
It was wonderful to have him in our home
We brought Steve in to help us with our 11-week old border collie mix and our 7-year-old pug mix. He helped us so much with their individual habits, and also with maintaining good behavior together. It was wonderful to have him in our home to see them in their usual space, and he even went for a walk with the pug to address his distractions. We had a few follow up questions after and Steve was very quick to give us additional help.
I can already see my pup improving!
I contacted Steve on a Thursday night, he called me the following day and the day after we had an appointment scheduled. The organization of scheduling was quick and very easy! His five rules are amazing and he explained them thoroughly. He spent ample time with us. We’ve been following his rules and I can already see my pup improving! His idea of dog training is logical and easy. Would recommend to anyone looking for a dog trainer.
“Our dogs connected with him and listened so well”
Training with Steve was amazing! He taught us amazing lifelong techniques to use forever on our dogs. I can’t express how grateful we are that we got his information from a friend. I definitely recommend his services. Thank you, Steve! Harli, Kylie, Kelsey, and I all appreciate your help!
