Matt knows what he is doing. He is truly an expert with dogs; he is also great at training this writer to be a better dog owner. My Mastiff had become overly aggressive after I took in a sweet Rotty. I feared that my Mastiff would do serious harm; she was getting more and more dog aggressive. Since Matt, my Mastiff has become the sweet little girl she had been before the Rotty came. She actually listens to me! I never thought it could happen. I am so thankful that I picked the right trainer. I would recommend Matt to anyone with doggie issues and needs.
Very Knowledgable & Efficient
Matty from A.C.T.S is extremely knowledgable in his field and will tailor you at home training sessions to your specific needs. I was 8 months pregnant with a toddler and a hyper 3 year old pitbull/boxer mix that I needed to listen to me in preparation for the arrival of our new baby. My dog was more maintenance than my toddler! Within 3 one hour lessons, my dog learned to come when I called her, go to "place" when visitors came to the door and stay off them during their visit. I cannot say enough great things about our dog training experience and I would highly recommend Matty to anyone.
Heel and Come
Matt helped me teach my dog to heel on and off leash. We would go hiking in the woods and she would pull or get tangled around trees and if not on leash would wander off and not always come back. This made hiking very stressful for what should have been relaxing. Now she walks nicely by my side on or off and leash and come quickly on the first command. Ours hikes are now much more enjoyable and we are able to venture further and see new places because of our increased pace.
Best Experience in Awhile
I cannot recommend Alert Canine Training Solutions highly enough. They are extremely professional when it comes to your dog and will walk you through what they are doing each step of the way if you have questions. Matt Carraturo is the owner of the company and was the one who helped with my 2 year old mix breed. After talking with Matt it was clear he has years of experience in the profession and the proof is in the results. He came directly to my home, talked me through what he would be doing and then did exactly that. After 5 visits my pup was no longer jumping on the couch! It was one of the best experiences I've had with a trainer in a long time.I will be recommending Alert Canine Training Solutions to any of my friends who have dogs.
I just wanted to thank Matt Carraturo & Alert Canine Training for the detail provided in training my dog and then communicating the process to me so I am able to continue the training with my dog. I would of never believed the advancement of my dog's training if I did not see it for my own eyes. Thank-you.
