They seem to have no effective methods of dealing with standard bad behaviors, nipping, chewing, and jumping.

I have a hard time respecting a trainer who bashes other trainers, such as Cesar Milan, in order to boost their business and moral. I am a dog trainer, and I believe Cesar Milan is an excellent, and very humane trainer who helps thousands

These trainers are brilliant, enthusiastic and patient! They really know how to get incredible results and they use modern training techniques! Thanks to Urban Dawgs, I am an incredible dog owner and my Bailey is the best trained dog on the block! Best of all, we had a great time doing it. Urban Dawgs is the BEST!
