Vince was amazing. He was able to demonstrate that our little crazy Miniature Pincher could learn to control herself and not bark and everyone and everything. It was a learning experience for both our dogs and, of course us. My wife and I were probably more difficult to train than the 2 dogs. Once ... See More

Extremely patient trainers. In our home the pet parents have ore to learn than the pets. Michael and Vince are both great. They just want to do whatever they can to make sure you're happy and comfortable with the training experience. No problem is too small. Thanks for all of your help and guidance.... See More

I was looking for a place to train my 6 year old German Shepherd Turbo for awhile. And by training I mean more then just sit and roll over. I wanted him to listen to stay and be off leash with out having to worry about him running off. I contacted a few places but ECS was the only one i heard back from right away. I set up an appointment for a free consultation a few days later with Vince and it was amazing! Just within that hour we saw a big difference in Turbo. Vince is great trainer and very patient. He really wants the best for Turbo and wants him to learn as much as possible. I would recommend this to everyone.
We have been very pleased with our training for our super active puppy, Sugar. Adam has been SO awesome teaching all of us how to train him and within 10 minutes Sugar was doing so much better. We haven't had any issues with no shows, or payment concerns or anything... we just wish we had hired them sooner. Thanks guys!
My dog Nutty was claimed to be a "dud" by other trainers. In other words, he didn't have strong enough genetics to be any good at protection work. I was told to try other things with him like scent work. But I know that training is a process of achievement and one who knows how, can work with the raw materials that were indeed present. After working with Tim, Nutty's bite work is better than other "titled" dogs I've seen because he has a strong foundation of fundamentals. His obedience has come farther in precision, animation, and vastness of commands than I could have previously imagined possible, and yet we are still on the road to more and better! I've worked with traditional training methods before to limited results. With Tim's training system even my older dog has sharpened his obedience and learned new things-- You certainly can teach an old dog new "tricks"! I am continually amazed at how much Tim knows about dogs, and more importantly about problem solving. Problem solving is a really just a technique or breaking things down into pieces and addressing each piece one by one until you can paint the whole picture again. This mind set has helped me not just in dog training, but in other areas on my life. Dogs are not just in your life, they are your life- and my dogs and my life have changed for the better since working with Tim and ECS Dogs. Thank you!!!
Tim Smith is one of the best dog trainers I've had the liberty of meeting. He knows dog behavior and how to fix those unwanted behaviors. I would highly recommend Tim to anyone looking for a well trained dog.
Outstanding - Rachel's expertise in dog training is immediately evident. In our first 60 minute training session, Stella was responding and retaining... more
