I was referred to Anthony before I purchased my puppy. He helped me organize what I needed to do to prepare for my pup by providing detailed lists of the essentials as well as reading material on training.
Anthony is totally engaged in his relationship with both me and my dog. He offers different alternatives through positive reinforcement training , always finding a way to get your dog to the goal. He is incredibly kind and patient .. both with me and my dog! I believe his enthusiasm with my pup is also what got her to respond …. couldn’t have done it without him. Thank you…
Anthony has been working with our rescue pup for the last 6 months. He is very knowledgeable about every aspect of training. He always provides helpful tips and exercises and consistently follows up. He has been kind enough to include our children in training sessions and has been very sensitive to our needs. We’ve also boarded our dog with him and it’s been a wonderful experience. He truly loves what he does and it shows.
We cannot say enough good things about the Gold Coast Dog and Anthony De Marinis who has been training our puppy for about 6 months now.
He only uses positive reinforcement techniques and a warm, caring approach when training.
Best of all, he totally understands dog psychology and the bond we form with our pet family members!
Anthony is trustworthy and super knowledgeable. He is a wonderful teacher who takes the time to work with our puppy and to teach us (her parents) simultaneously.
He is really amazing , his methods are extremely effective, and his caring nature goes far beyond just training.
It makes us so proud that wherever we go with our pup people stop us to admire her manners….and of course how cute she really is LOL.
If you are looking for a fantastic trainer and a life lasting experience with your new family member, we highly recommend Anthony and the Gold Coast Dog.
