DognPooch is amazing!
Mark Lipes is truly great at what he does. I strongly recommend anyone with a dog in their family take time to send their puppy/dog to Mark’s training. His service is truly priceless.
Before choosing Mark at DognPooch to care for our little one I called many, many training facilities within about 200 miles of our town. Not only was DognPooch well priced and close by, Mark was the first person willing to speak with me personally and to send videos and references without me even asking. He answered my many, many questions with grace and authority.
We dropped our puppy off with Mark (though I think he might do pick-ups, too) and were pleased and amazed to find the training space not only warm and inviting but also spotless. This is huge and helped us feel great about leaving her there.
Throughout the two weeks that Puppy was in training Mark sent us videos and updates about her progress. She was trained with other dogs, cats, birds, people, in the park, on the sidewalk, in stores, and so so much more! When we picked her up she was happy to see us but also sad to say goodbye- another great sign that the training Mark does he does with kindness and a love of animals.
Mark showed us what to do and how to reinforce her training at home. He took time to practice with us and was able to tell us where we might need to try a bit harder or what might work best for us with her.
So, what does all of this mean now that we have her home? Our dog is AMAZING! She is such a joy to have around. She sits, stays, comes, heels, knows her place (which can be anything I designate as a place), listens for noises we make (pays attention to us) and so so much more. She no longer chases our cats or goes running around when asked to come, she doesn’t budge even when food is dropped on the floor near her. New training we’ve introduced also sticks extremely well.
Before DognPooch our puppy was what most would call a pretty good puppy- not too much biting, not too much jumping, regular potty training issues, in fact, my mother-in-law thought we were nuts for paying for training for ‘such a good dog’.
Now, our dog is a phenomenal dog! She can meet new people, sit with us at restaurants, stay on her place even in the garage (near loud machinery) or outside near squirrels and cars…I could go on and on. If you’re questioning the worth of such a service, please, please do it for yourself and your family!
Mark was amazing to work with. He kept us well informed of everything happening throughout our little girls stay with him – and we had a total turnaround! Our 8month GSP needed help being a better on leash and off leash walker, and to get a good handle on some of her bird dog tendencies. We had heard horror stories of people who feel like their dog “comes back a different dog” when they’ve gone to a trainer, however we had no where near this experience using Mark. Our sweet little cuddled came back as happy as ever, and better than ever with amazing manners. We are really excited and pleased with the experience at Dog n Pooch!
We took our 6 month border collie to Mark. Great communication prior to training, during, and even after. Our dog’s walking and listening have improved immensely
Gabby is a disciplined pup now. Mark did a great job.
Mark is the Dog King! ? ? ?
Mark is truly the Dog King! We have a 2 year old goldendoodle named Hans who is smart as can be but equally strong willed. Prior to sending him to be trained by Mark, my 4 children dreaded their daily walks because Hans would pull them the entire time, bark at other dogs and run up to people on the sidewalk… well… that all changed when we recently sent him to Dog N Pooch training with Mark! Hans is a changed dog and Marks training has brought JOY to our family! Thank you Mark! AKA “Dog King” haha! We will definitely be calling you to have Hans come back when we go on vacations!
