My dog Riley and I had a great experience with Bill and All About Canine Care. Riley was very hyper, jumpy and didn’t listen. Bill was kind, patient, and taught me the skills I needed to work with Riley to help desensitize her and train her. She has made tremendous progress in the 13 weeks we spent together. I recommend Bill for your dog training needs.

Bill has done an amazing job with my 9 month old dachshund, Penny. As a first-time dog owner, I was lost and nervous about training my puppy. Bill put me at ease immediately and helped give me confidence in training Penny. Bill is personable, professional and very knowledgeable! He gives so much above and beyond what a typical dog trainer does, providing helpful tips for potty training, useful toys to get etc. I have gotten so much value out of hiring Bill! If you are looking for a dog trainer, I would highly recommend him any day!

I contacted Bill about training my 3-year old labrador who, quite frankly, had become something of a spoiled princess. I was impressed during the initial consultation with Bill and his ability to calm her down almost immediately. Lucy spent an hour a day for 3 weeks with Bill, and she is a completely different dog now. She understands what is expected of her, responds to commands with little hesitation, and has become the dog I knew she could be. She’s so much easier for me to handle, and she seems happier following my lead (instead of the other way around!). Bill’s ability to develop a rapport with her was amazing. In fact, I can’t mention his name out loud without Lucy assuming we’re headed to training! I appreciated the fact that his training techniques are rooted in positive reinforcement, and that even when needing correction he displayed tremendous patience. I also appreciated Bill’s patience with me as he trained me to handle Lucy. I learned a lot about my own body language, tone of voice, and consistency - things I hadn’t considered prior to Bill’s instruction - that are making an incredible difference in the way Lucy responds to me. Lucy and I are continuing to work on the skills Bill taught us, and I’m looking forward to taking her back for more advanced training in the near future. I would recommend Bill to anyone who is looking for an exceptional trainer. We’ve been to other trainers, and never got results that could come close to what Bill accomplished with her. Lucy and I have a much better relationship now, and we’re both so much happier!

I would recommend Bill to anyone. Our puppy was paper trained, and we could not get her to understand to go outside. It was very frustrating. Bill came to our home and evaluated the situation and told us step by step what to do. Rylie is doing much better, and we are enjoying our time with the dog instead of cleaning up countless messes.

Hi Bill, We just wanted to thank you for the wonderful way you helped us with our two weimaraners(8 months old).The training you provided was effective and very informative especially the way you always explained the reasons behind the exercises you were performing. Our dogs are happy and (a work in progress) obeying much better. Since they are a strong minded dog, they, of course, need constant reinforcing as you pointed out to us.
The dogs miss you being here daily...they keep looking for you to arrive. You sure won their hearts from the beginning.
Thank you again and if anyone needs assistance with their dog or dogs, Bill should be your trainer too.
Sincerely,

My husband and I brought Cam into our lives last November. Cam was an 11 month old mix lab/retriever from a rescue shelter and was very skittish and hard to focus but smart. If we didn’t get him under control, we saw Cam as being the master and we would be the follower.

In came Bill! Bill approaches dog training very professionally. He met with me to determine the goals of the training, provided information concerning puppies and dogs needs and characteristics, and set expectations as what we could expect. Thru out the program, he provided insight into dog handling. I’ve had dogs all of my life so I thought I was pretty well versed but Bill provided a lot more knowledge.

The training program was 8 weeks in length, 5 days a week, with one day, a “transference day”, or as I would call it, a train the owner day!

Bill successfully trained Cam on the general commands. But we gave him a few challenges as well. We live on a Farm and Cam would chase vehicles coming on our property. Since we have large trucks visiting, we were concerned with Cam’s safety. Bill, within 4 sessions, was able to get Cam to “wait” when a vehicle came onto the property!! Cam also would bark when anyone entered the property. Now with a “SHHH” command, he stops!

I would recommend Bill for any training large or small. You won’t regret it!

My name is Ian Bulow and I am a Chiropractor in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania. My wife and I have three little girls, and last year we got our first family dog; a Rottweiler named “Torque”. Torque is AWESOME! We are so glad we invested in a family dog, and we are very appreciative of Bill Petraglia of All About Canine Care and the help he gave when we first got Torque.

You see, if you are going to anything in life, you are better off doing it right the first time. Bill helped us to lay the groundwork for a positive relationship with our new family pet. I was not about to have a 100+lb dog in my house unless he was properly trained!

Bill came to our home, was very courteous and kind, and truly got to know my wife and I. He asked about our specific needs & wants regarding Torque, and created a specific plan to help us in our goals. I can’t thank him enough for setting us on the right path. Torque has been a blessing in our life and I would like to personally thank and endorse Bill for all he does and what he did for us. Knowledge is the foundation for anything that lasts, and Bill gave us the needed knowledge to start our puppy off right!

Thanks Bill.

It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend All About Canine Care for the care of your pets. Bill Petraglia is very knowledgeable and skilled in the care and training of dogs. This becomes first apparent when you and your pets meet with Bill during the initial interview. He is very thorough in gathering information from you so that he can provide your dogs with optimum care that meets the individual needs of each dog. Bill then “interviews” your dog by interacting with them in a variety of ways. It is obvious from observing this interaction that Bill is well-versed in canine behavior and uses positive reinforcement training techniques.

Bill keeps you, the owner, well informed. His written visit reports let you know when he arrived at your home, what he did with your dog during his visit and when he departed. Bill is very reliable and also very trustworthy in maintaining the security of your home. He definitely delivers on his promise to take care of your pets just as you would. I know that my dogs are in great hands when they are under Bill’s care.

I am very happy with the service provided by Bill Petraglia of All About Canine Care and know that you will be too.
