I mean...wow. to say Tame changed me and my dog's life would be an understatement. I have a 6.5 year old GSD who turned aggressive a few years ago. Bit people, attack barking at random people, chasing people down the street, etc., and no way to stop her. I was embarrassed and defeated trying to handle her on my own - and frankly, scared... I tried home trainers and other techniques but nothing was good enough. To put things in perspective, after a 3 week boot camp with Tame, I now live in an apartment with an elevator with my dog, and other people call her the best behaved dog in the building. I don't know what magic they do at Tame, but the clear methodology, psychology and consistency are nothing short of amazing. In addition, Matt counseled me on techniques and I even started crating my dog at 6.5 years old to ease her anxiety, and it has been a game changer. They are thorough even though they are extremely busy with a lot of dogs. They are busy for a reason! I will be taking my dog back every month for reinforcement and am so excited about it! 10/10 recommend!
We went to Matt when we were at our breaking point. We have a 3 year old husky lab who developed some resource guarding issues as well as aggression in the evenings when he was tired. He almost bit a few people so we were very afraid if we didn’t correct it we’d have to get rid of him. We decided to go with the board and stay program for 4 weeks. We saw a tremendous change in our dog. We no longer have him growling in the evenings at us and great with off leash training. The four weeks allowed his behavior to be re-set and no longer dealing with aggression or teeth flaring at us. We’re still working through additional things like dog-to-dog friendless and getting our dog comfortable with anyone petting him but Matt has been with us along the way. This program is more than training your dog but you as a handler as well. We learned things we were doing that were actually enabling the bad behavior. Grateful for Matt’s help and look forward to continue to learn and expand on new areas with our dog.
Matt and his team at Tame did an amazing job with our rescue dog Prince. They were extremely knowledgeable and responsive to any questions or concerns we had. We were struggling with our dog Prince with general listening, taking commands, leash walking and appropriate behavior around other dogs and people. Matt and his team were not only able to correct these behaviors seamlessly but gave us the education we needed to continue working with Prince. Sending our dog to Tame was one of our best decisions, he is a much better dog and listens so much better. We are looking forward to sending him to the next tier of training in the future, and will definitely be recommending Tame to anyone who needs training for their dogs.
Tame Dog Training worked wonders for our GSD puppy, Butters! We did the Standard Off-Leash program and boy was it worth it!! Butters can now consistently walk off-leash and is very responsive to commands. The training even includes a wireless collar package that is great for reinforcing training at home and in public. The owner is very responsive, knowledgeable, and has a clear passion for dog training. I highly recommend Tame Dog Training!
What can I say about Matt and team at Tame Dog Training? AMAZING! The response my English bulldog has now with a solid foundation is fantastic. For the first time I’ve been able to get my dog to lie down at night in his spot and not move. That’s just one of the many breakthroughs. Thanks y’all
When a former trainer needed help, who do you call, TAME! For fun I used to help train working dogs, but our newly adopted 7 month old GSD/Mal mix was a challenge even for this veteran working dog owner. Zora is doing well and TAME totally saved our sanity!
I can’t recommend Tame Dog Training enough. My 1-yr golden retriever, Charley, spent a week with Matt and his team in the puppy training program when he was 4 months old and then returned 5 months later for the 17-day off-leash program. If you truly want to enjoy your dog then you should seriously consider Tame Dog. I now take Charley with me everywhere and I consistently get comments about how well-behaved his is. Our walks are so much fun because Charley is trained to remain by my side. Matt’s training is not limited to the dogs, he trains you too! I’m now confident that I can modify any of Charley’s behaviors using Matt’s methods. The ROI on the investment is huge. I would say priceless.
Impressive results from the puppy plan for our very energetic pup. She is calmer overall and crate trained completely. She knows a few useful commands: kennel up, place, down, go potty. Matt is extremely knowledgeable and clearly explains why dogs do what they do.
