Not qualified. Did not help at all with our dog. He came out twice to assist with our GSD and could not assist. We went with another trainer and the issue was resolved within a few months.

Our first group training and I already learned so much. Thanks for showing me that my dog is not the "crazy pitbull" of the other training classes, but a good dog that just needs a little more direction and how I can be that direction.

Let me start off by saying that Gary is a pro with dogs! When people come to my house, my dog always goes crazy and is usually hyper for 10-15 minutes after they arrive. When Gary showed up, after the initial excitement and some corrections from Gary on how I was holding my dog back, my dog was calmly laying on his bed within 2 minutes of his arrival. The first thing we did after introductions was to watch a power point that was very informative and to talk more about what I hoped to get out of our session and some of the problems I was experiencing. When we started working with my dog is when I truly became amazed. Because of the way Gary helped me change the way I was giving commands, my dog responded in a positive way almost instantly. After a bit more practice and a few more pointers for me, I could actually stop my dog from approaching the door, when someone knocked and he keeps getting better the more I practice with him. After the indoor work, Gary and I went outside to work on my dog on a leash for a little while. Again, he gave me some great pointers that my dog took very well. Overall my dog listens and behaves so much better after working with Gary. I would recommend him 100% I am very happy with the results of the training!

Three months ago, I rescued an abused dog from Pet Rescue by Judy, I named her Grace as she was blessed to have survived someone throwing her out of a car. One of Judy's volunteers scooped her up and I'm grateful to that person for their quick thinking and care. Judy, as most people know is a selfless, wonderful woman who rescues abandoned pets in the Central Florida area. As expected with an abused dog, I had a few issues with Gracie and asked Judy if she would recommend a dog trainer. She immediately referred me to Gary Adams, Animal Behavior Specialist and Trainer and I'm so grateful that she did. Gary came to my home and spent 2 hours with us explaining the proper handling and care of owning a rescue dog, who understandably has issues. He gave us some helpful tips and insight into a dog's mind, which were well appreciated by us. Even my unfriendly cat, who hisses and growls at everyone, appeared to like him, which was amazing to me. He seemed to completely understand the way animals think and truly helped us with our training of sweet Gracie. If you need assistance with your dog or horse, Gary is the person to call. He will help you attain the goal of sharing your life, with a happy and well adjusted pet. I highly recommend Gary as he seems to have an innate sense of what animals are thinking and the best way to handle them in a positive manner.

My boyfriend and I just had a training session yesterday with Gary Adams and already, all of our lives have been changed. Our dogs are more comfortable with each other, they are looking to us for direction, and peace has started to make its place in our home. A more sincere and lover of animals we have never met when Gary came to our home. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!

Ok, so here is my review of Natural Instinct Dog Training. Gary (founder and trainer) came over to my house and immediately knew more about my three dogs than I did. He offered lots of helpful information to myself and my mother because as he explained it's not just about the training the dogs but also the human owners as well. He went into great detail and made sure we understood everything he was goin gover and always encouraged questions and participation from us and the dogs! I've used a lot of trainers over the years as I've had a lot of dogs and know a lot of folks in the adoption and rescue world. By far I truly feel Gary has the gentle touch my dogs and I needed and the understanding to relate that into a class where the whole house of people and pets can learn. He went above and beyond to help us reach a happy and harmonious relationship with each other, and I highly recommend Gary to anyone who is thinking of hiring a dog trainer. He was truly the mind reader we all needed to be on the same page! Thank you Gary!!!

Gary at Natural Instinct Dog Training, is fantastic to work with! He has helped me with both my dogs and my horses. Not only did he give me great insight into how my animals think, he gave me the tools to continue improving my communication with them. I've definitely learned a lot! :)

The review from Jason is false, I have never worked with this customer. This is a post from a competitive trainer that needs a Paw Correction of their own for poor business practices.
