Scuppers’s training has been one of the best investments we have ever made, and being the owner of a SolidK9 trained dog has been nothing but a joy for me.

It’s been over a year and a half since you worked with my then boyfriend (now fiance) Sam, myself, and our dog Scuppers, so this (long) email may seem a bit out of the blue- but I can’t remember if I ever wrote you a testimonial for you to share with prospective clients, and if … Read full testimonial » "Scuppers’s training has been one of the best investments we have ever made, and being the owner of a SolidK9 trained dog has been nothing but a joy for me."

If you give Jeff the opportunity to give you the kind of dog you have only dreamed of you will get your dream dog and then some.

My husband and I decided to add two Labradors to the family Tucker (black) and Topper (chocolate). They were absolutely great pups but very, very unruly. I have two boys and with the puppies it was like having four toddlers and two teenagers. They didn’t listen when I would call them, they would not sit … Read full testimonial » "If you give Jeff the opportunity to give you the kind of dog you have only dreamed of you will get your dream dog and then some."

Maggie needed a very unique training program and Jeff very successfully executed it! Maggie is a happier dog, too!

The Animal Haven requested help from Jeff Gellman, owner of Solid K9 Training, about a dog named Maggie who was under-socialized and started to bite our staff and dog walkers. We solicited help from various dog trainers, but Maggie bit them all. The Animal Haven was very concerned about Maggie’s quality of life at our … Read full testimonial » "Maggie needed a very unique training program and Jeff very successfully executed it!

The dogs were well behaves at both Thanksgiving and Christmas. They stayed in front of the fireplace with lots of people and food only a few feet away.

Now that the holidays are over Cathy and I wanted to take a minute to say “Thank You” for all your help with Haley. We should also say Thank you for your help with Maggie. Everything you taught to Haley, sit, stay, down, place and especially walking properly we were able to teach Maggie.

Jeff taught me how to be the pack leader, and that has not only made Ross a better and happier dog, but it has made me a better and happier person.

Once I graduated college and was on my own I decided to adopt Ross, a 9 month old Yellow Lab mix. I have had dogs my entire life, and I had read every book I could find on yellow labs to prepare myself for Ross’ arrival. Unfortunately, all my research on the breed was useless … Read full testimonial » "Jeff taught me how to be the pack leader, and that has not only made Ross a better and happier dog, but it has made me a better and happier person."

Basically, after working with Jeff we feel that we can train Rusty to do just about anything.

We adopted Rusty from the Providence Animal Rescue League and after about….A DAY!…we were looking at each other and wondering how in the world we were going to manage this affectionate, lovable, 70 pounder, dog aggressive, American Pit Bull Terrier. Rusty was two years old when we adopted him and it was evident that he … Read full testimonial » "Basically, after working with Jeff we feel that we can train Rusty to do just about anything."

Well “they” were wrong and Jeff, who confidently told us that he could change her behavior, was absolutely right!

Gretta was a 15 week old German Shepherd pup when she came into our life in December of 2002. One year later she bit a guest in our home. We immediately went for help and were told by several trainers that there was nothing we could do. She was “hard wired” that way and very … Read full testimonial » "Well “they” were wrong and Jeff, who confidently told us that he could change her behavior, was absolutely right!"

We just wanted to let you know how much you impacted our family

Just wanted you to know that we put Buster down a few weeks ago 🙁 It was very sad. He was a part of our family for almost 15 years and we loved him dearly. You helped us so much w/ Rocco that we were confident enough to get another Cane Corso! Duke is 11 … Read full testimonial » "We just wanted to let you know how much you impacted our family"

I finally feel like I have control because Beans actually understands the commands I’m using

I’ve had a handful of “problem dogs” growing up, and our dog trainers never seemed to have a lasting effect once they stepped foot out of the house. So when I got my Mini Bull Terrier “Beans”, I vowed I wanted to have a “normal dog” once and for all.

Levi came home a week ago and is a changed dog

I live in New York City in an apartment building with 60 apts and lots of other families with  dogs. My dog Levi, a dachshund, ran my household. He would bark non-stop whenever someone  came to our door until they acknowledged him. My neighbors barely spoke to me they were so  pissed about the barking. … Read full testimonial » "Levi came home a week ago and is a changed dog"

Within the first session, Jeff had Ollie (and me) sitting and walking (heeling).

My name is Jen and the cute boy in the picture is my dog Ollie who is a 5 year old  Boxer/Shepherd mix. I adopted Ollie about 3 years ago from the Michigan Humane Society.  From that fact, you can probably guess that we just moved here a little while ago.

Your techniques are simple, but reinforced over and over again.

I have had Labrador Retrievers all my life and I learned how to train them quite successfully. Then I got this little Coton de Tulear who is as cute as can be, is only 9 pounds and travels with  us everywhere. She had one annoying trait. She barked at everything. She’s also timid, and  although … Read full testimonial » "Your techniques are simple, but reinforced over and over again."

After two weeks, our dogs were like new dogs!

We relocated to Providence the summer of 2007 with our husky, Storm. We had never had  any formal training with her in Upstate NY and until we lived in a city environment, we didn’t  realize how much we really needed some training and control of our energetic dog. After adopting a  second husky in February … Read full testimonial » "After two weeks, our dogs were like new dogs!"

Where the soul feels safe… one human, one canine I was asked to share my story about an incredibily beautiful dog with magical eyes, and a spirit  that took my breath away, who I fell in love with.

To be honest, there isn’t a whole lot you can say to Jeff’s credit that hasn’t already been said by one of his satisfied clients – just look at the other testimonials on his site.

I absolutely recommend for anyone seeking a perfectly trained dog.

Initially I doubted myself- and whether or not my 2 year old trained German Shepherd, brought back from Europe, actually required “professional” help. Brixen was a very sweet dog, perfectly behaved indoors, got along fantastically with other people and strangers, and, for the most part, knew and listened well to his obedience training. But there … Read full testimonial » "I absolutely recommend for anyone seeking a perfectly trained dog."
