I don't normally write reviews and rarely give top marks but Ron is incredible!! If you are reading this review and are in search of a trainer stop here do yourself a favor and hire Ron. The great thing is Ron trains dogs out of state as well as in - state, we are lucky that he is not that far away but if you live out of state you can make arrangements with Ron to get your dog trained. We have 2 GSD puppies we purchased and had them since they were 6 weeks old. They are great dogs but they don't listen. They can do a couple tricks, but they also jumped up on people and they had a relational bond issue. At 4 months old they are dragging us down the street on their walks. 4 months old just imagine if we didn't get any help, we wouldn't be able to walk them. Everyone told us we would have to rehome one of our pups because it would never work. We were appalled because we love both of them. They are a part of our family and we will do whatever it takes to keep them together. I called a couple professional trainers and no one wanted to help us since our GSD's were male and brothers. Then I saw Ronald Pfierman (Cincinnati Dog Bootcamp, www.aztecdogtraining.com/) video on You Tube watched it several times, kept going back to it ( I think divine intervention) and decided to give him a call. He was so awesome on the phone. I told him our situation and he gave me some ideas to use with the dogs before we had a chance to bring them in. He also said it sounded like we were doing a good job with them and it made us feel better about everything. I convinced my husband that Ron could help us. So my husband and I took our two German shepherd dogs to Ron at 4 months old. Ron couldn't believe the size of our dogs and said it was a good thing we brought them in because they would be harder to control as they grew up together with bad habits. In 10 minutes he had James under control, heeling, sitting etc. it was amazing. He then did the same with Jesse. Jesse has had a problem jumping on people. He took Jesse and had him heeling, sitting and listening in 10 minutes and then he worked on the jumping up on me. In 3 passes Jesse no longer jumped on me. My husband and I were amazed. Of course Ron explained that what he is able to do with the dogs can also be transferred to us but we would have to do our homework and transfer the leadership skills from himself to one of us first off and then both of us a couple weeks down the line. Ron and Melissa are two wonderful people. They have a nice clean home and kept the dogs in the house and in a very clean area. Their home doesn't smell of dogs at all as a matter of fact if you didnt see the cages lined up in the room, you wouldn't know an animal was in the home. The vet needs to take a lesson from Ron and Melissa. The great thing about Ron's training is that he is so good with the dogs. They respect him. I think he loves them as much as we do:) Before we took Jesse, home Ron trained me on what I need to do to keep Jesse on the right track with training at home and taking the leadership role. Its been two weeks and we took Jesse home yesterday and at first we let him check out the house and I saw that if we didnt do what Ron said, Jesse would try to take back the leadership role. Ron warned us that this would happen. He said your same old loveable dog is there, he just needs to know who has the leadership in the house and if you dont use the stall chain, it will make it harder to take control. So we did exactly what Ron told us. Jesse tried testing us early in the morning barking and making a racket but we just ignored him to show him that we are in control and not him. Not everyone in the household was happy but I plan on doing things exactly as Ron has instructed us so our dogs are great in the home and outside and with visitors. You have to get your dog to see you as the leader and not Ron. My training this morning went Awesome. Jesse listened to me and sat and stayed in his place as told. It was crazy awesome. Then I came in the house and texted Ron to make sure I was doing everything right so that Jesse wasn't confused. Ron is patient and caring and he doesn't mind a million questions via text or phone call. This guy is awesome!!! Now, my husband will be doing the same with James. Bob will be the leader and our dog James who is a major Alpha dog has seen this too. I cant say enough about this guy. We have referred several of our friends to him as well. If you are looking for a true dog whisperer, who cares about your family member and will make a huge difference in both of your lives in a positive and caring way you need to give Ron a call. I feel God led me to Ron and I am 100% Satisfied!!!
Pros: Super nice, upfront, comforting to pets, easy to talk to, gave straightforward directions on how to lead the dogs, compassionate
