Amazed at the transformation – I took my aggressive, protective 3 year old 150 lbs Great Dane as a last resort to Duffy's. This was his last chance as he had already bitten people and was becoming dog agressive too. We left him for two weeks and were amazed at how well behaved he was when we returned. Granted it took continued work on our part but he had the basics down and was now able to be controlled. We had never seen him so well behaved.
This was several years ago, but we are returning this month with a hound mix puppy and I have complete confidence that we will see the same amazing results that we experienced before.
The staff is friendly and experienced and seem to really care for the dogs.
Waste of $1000 – I rescued a 2-year-old blue heeler. Took her to Duffy's. She would perform great while in the building. Once we walked out the door, I couldn't even get her in the car. I REPEATEDLY asked Matt and the other trainers for help on getting her in and out of the car, driving calmly anywhere and walking her around the neighborhood. Matt blamed me because I had a lab mix, also rescued and who had no behavioral problems. He said the heeler wasn't getting all my attention. The two dogs have always gotten along just fine. I am putting her down. Matt, I hope your conscious is bothering you, but I doubt it!
Duffy's first rate training – Molly is my first dog and at 6 months-old, I couldn't handle her. Tired and frustrated, I was contemplating finding a new home for her. My husband called Matt Duffy at Duffy's and signed us up for training. Molly was so out of control and now - what a difference!!!
David was Molly's (and my) trainer and had complete control of her instantly. I was amazed as he talked to me and explained the technique in teaching the dog manners, how to take out aggression, and simply integrating her into a family environment. My huge concern was her behavior around my elderly parents and very young niece and nephew. In just the 1-hour consultation, I could not believe the difference and went home to practice what we learned over the weekend.
The following Monday, Molly started "doggie day care" so they could work one-on-one with her and also socialize her to other dogs and situation. Each day there was a marked improvement and after training my husband and I, we could not live without her which is a far cry from my wanting to adopt her out after only 6 months.
I am ashamed that it has taken me 2 1/2 years to write this review but have just referred Duffy's to my sister who has a very aggressive 6 month-old Norwegian elk hound. Can't wait until she sees the transformation in her dog like we did with Molly. Thank you Matt and David!
Proud Owner of Well Behaved Great Dane – Situation: Great Dane, Hearing Impaired, 6+ acres and dog travels with owners in public very often.
As you can imagine, having an impaired animal offers opportunities for frustration and challenge. Having a Giant Breed that is impaired compounds the challenges, and we knew when we brought home our little angel that we had many months of training, both for owner and pup.
Hand signals started early, to get her accustomed to watching us for instruction, correction, attention. When she was old enough to attend a school, we knew right away Duffy's was the place for us. In our evaluation interview it was evident that our dog was willing to please making training easier. Not easy mind you, but at least she was not terribly resistant to instruction.
6 Months have passed, and our 33" tall giant angel is now certified as a Canine Good Citizen. She behaves in public with reminders, not correction. She is well behaved with children and adults alike. She behaves in parks with both people and canine. Because of her coloring and size, she gets a lot of attention, and she stays still and accepts attention with ease.
We are working with her to help with nursing home visits and the R.E.A.D. program thanks to the attention and training we have received.
I would like to stress that we believe the training and reminder sessions are necessary for BOTH owner and dog. We are a team, and like with any relationship, it takes work to make it successful.
I am happy to have Matt, David, Kathy and Justin as part of our team. I would highly recommend any dog owner needing suggestion or intense training to contact Duffy's.
Dogs who are part of the family – When my Larbadoodle was 15 months old my husband and I decided it was time to either fence our yard or get our pet trained. After some thought we decided it was best to have a well trained dog who could go anywhere rather than a dog to just run in the yard.
Matt and David from Duffy's were so wonderful to work with and the results were amazing. My wild "doodle" is now a gentleman. As a matter of fact, he was so amazing we purchased his brother (same mother and father, different litter) a year later. At first our number two guy (10 weeks old) was into everything to the point he had my husband thinking it was a fluke that number one was so perfect. I asked him to give me 5 months. Is he glad he did. David gave me some hints on how to start to work with him before he was old enough to go to "school."
The first hint was how to get them to stop playing when it was an inconvenient time for us. With just one word, "BREAK," the "doodles" will stop playing and walk away from each other. Priceless!
The next hint was using their technique to walk on a lead and not to let him walk out of a door unless given the command. No run aways at our house.
My youngest is now 17 months and he too is a perfect gentleman. We are always stopped where ever we go by people wanting to know how I got them to be so well behaved. Well, I can take some credit for the training. It is important to know Matt and David can train your dog but it is up to you to keep him trained. You, the owner, must own the responsibilty to work with your dog and never let him slide from training because he looks cute or because you don't want to fool with him at that time. I liken it to raising children, it takes you being an active partner with your child's school, Duffy's, to make your child(pet)a well rounded person or in this case, pet.
Some think training will rob them of their personality. Nothing could be farther from the truth. My guys are as fun and loving as any pet I have ever had.
