I took my dog to that Complete Canine place. I have a wonderful Registered St. Bernard that was a gift from my family as a puppy 5 years ago.
Initially they seemed professional and knowledgeable and well prepared to care for my furry family member.
Due to a career change, My work hours are now long and my commute is over 2 hours total to and from, So I wanted to give my dog the care and attention he deserves, rather than see him alone at home all day.
They SEEMED like a great option.
The first week was good. After that....Downhill does not even begin to describe the matter. I walked in early and no one was in the front office area, so naturally...I looked in to the day room where the dogs mingle and play, and saw Paula slapping my dog across the face.
My dog is a Gentle, Loving and Cuddly dog who loves attention. I took my dog home and Will NEVER go there again. I called the SPCA and made a complaint and I called several attorneys for advice....The best advice at this point is DO NOT JUDGE A SCAM BY ITS COVER ! BE CAREFUL, AND BE PROACTIVE, BE AWARE of where your pets are and who they are with.
My dog still cowers now when a hand is raised....He NEVER did that Before.
To Dave and Paula....All I Have to say is goodbye from Bernie and I. To the public I have to say "You never know what goes on when YOU are not there" BE CAREFUL !

We trained our dog with Sal back in 2007 and Dave and Paula were there for some of our sessions learning how to train, helping out, etc. Paula ended up hitting our puppy one night and Sal fired her and was very apologetic for her behavior. I would definitely avoid Complete Canine after that experience.

too bad youre the only one hearing this. my name is not paula first of all. but i know her i train dogs for a living and have met her many times she knows her shit loves the animals and is a good person. but you on the other hand you are just someone spreading shit. your a nobody. and i can understand being pissed about that.
Wow, you must be over the hill if you think that Paula or her side kick Dave know anything about this business. To them, putting on a great act and deceiving people is what makes them who they are. Paula has lied her way into the business. I was told by her ex that she NEVER had cancer like she tells people to gain sympathy. I have heard others say that after a few weeks they see through these clowns. I hope Karma does happen in life because Paula will get what she has coming. I would choose Pet Smart over these two

Both sides of this really need to learn before they post, I do not live in the area or plan on going to the place. If they are abusing the dogs they should be shut down, if this stink is because they fired someone that could not do their job the moron should grow up before he/she is sued for labile. Now to address a few things that I have a hard time believing people there are stupid enough to believe
"serious Ithaca, NY: no educational background and are not trainers or behaviorists,you have to have a degree to be a behavorist" (just so you know it is spelled behaviorist)... "again do your homework every thing about that place is show..... "
You have to be kidding, Looks like you should do yours. There is no such thing as a degree or certificate for dog training, granted some "Super Duper Trainer of all" might say you need THEM to give you a certificate, you can even go on-line and find one to print with your name on it, but it is all the same, not worth taking into the bath room. Before you tell people to do their homework, do yours first.
"dog lover12 Potsdam, NY : if she is unlicensed how does she train k9s for the troopers...hmmmmmmmmm i wonder. and uneducated i have a masters in concervation what do u have besides your thumb up your ass. you are all lies and so upset that youve been called out on everything you say. o and by the why if you go in her building she has her credentials on her wall. so come on feed the public more lies."
This MUST be the person in question, the comment "no educational background " was directed at the person that ran the place, and you reply with YOUR education. Nothing like giving yourself away. Also please tell me the "master degree:" you have was not for spelling. If you do indeed have a degree of any type, much less a masters, I feel sorry for the state of education in this country. Try and put a small amount of effort into WORDS, punctuation and grammar. The word "I" is always capitalized. So is the first letter of every sentence. I would think if I had a masters degree in something as you claim I would know how to spell it, conservation is the correct spelling. There are many other errors but I will let you find them on your own if you are able.
Normally I would not pick on such small matters or attack spelling or typing mistakes, but for someone who claims to hold a " masters in concervation" I would expect better. I do hate people that have a need to lie.
You need to be re-educated you simple minded little twirp. Paula certified to train Police dogs? That is so funny. She has no such qualifications nor does her small minded half wit boyfriend Dave. Both have NEVER trained a Police dog ever. She walks with a moron State Trooper who I am sure get's special favors in return. Being that he is married I'm sure he wouldn't want that to get out. She has no experience whatsoever. Being a person who is very good friends and train's along side a true Certified Police dog trainer, I can 100% verify that she is a total BS er and has your stupid azz brain washed. Maybe your another special favors subject of her's.:)

Dave & Paula came to my house about 4 years ago to help with some problems we were having with our 2 dogs. They were both very professional and knowledgeable and helped us immensely. Before they opened their facility, we boarded our dogs at a facility in Verona. 3 years ago, that facility allowed 1 of my dogs to get out of the kennel, run onto the thruway and get killed.
Ever since, we have been boarding our remaining dog at Complete Canine and I am extremely impressed with them. My dog is well taken care of and she isn't a nervous wreck when I go to pick her up. This is a German Shepherd who is particular with her affections and she is obviously relaxed & at ease with both Dave & Paula. I also popped in 1 day & looked in the doggy day care room & the dogs in there seemed relaxed & comfortable.
I would recommend them to anyone.
Oh yeah, I also brought 1 of my dogs (when he was a pup) to Sal several years ago. Sal stomped his feet & screamed & when my dog went at him instead of cowering in fear, Sal told me to put the dog down! Now how would your dog act if he felt he or his owner was being threatened? Great dog trainer? Don't think so.
This post really made me laugh. I see when other facilities are under attack who get's the blame? Some guy who has had a very successful dog training business since the 80's. He has worked with more clients and dogs than this Complete Canine ever will. You make a ridiculous comment that you took your dog to Sal at one time and told you to put the dog down. Funny, that you praise this Dave and Paula when they went to Sal's training facility to learn how to train dogs. Go to his web site and see what really happened and why Sal wants nothing to do with them. I also went to Sal years ago and how can someone who you describe as being a so called bad trainer be in business over 25 years? I have not had contact with him in a long time since I moved away because of rejects as yourself but I do from time to time go on his web site. Make sure the next time you write something you know the facts. From what I see on here, I wouldn't take a dead dog to this Dave and Paula

How can someone who is a bad trainer be in business over 25 years? Well, there's an old saying, "A fool and his money are soon parted". And there are a lot of fools in this area, many of them dog owners.

Well at least you admit your a fool for contradicting yourself. On one hand you say you liked the people who many others have called them out on some horrible things they have done, yet on the other hand you make an idiotic statement that this other guy was no good yet it was stated that in fact they did go to him for instruction. I had to read his web site after reading what reject had put about you. It's in black and white with proof of what the trainer you condemned said. This Dave and Paula are corrupt business people. Oh and one last thing. Can it be that all the people who have gone to him are fools? Or is it just because he spoke the truth to you and didn't tell you what you wanted to hear? What a joke

You really seem to be taking this personally. Make sure I know the facts? I'm relaying my experience with both facilities so, since it happened, um, its a fact. I'm not trying to take away business from anyone or bring business to anyone. Just telling everyone my experience.

Personally many of these negative posts seems to be coming from one or two people who seen to have personal issues with the place. Bashing someone's business to make you place look better is going to catch up with you. I been doing business with thses people for years and have never had a problem.

For the person who can't read you need to read the hours on the door then come back here and tell everyone you went there after they closed, I seriously doubt they were not there when you showed up.(more than lakley after they closed)

As for Tats on a girl. Whats if the person has tats. Whats that got to do with taking care of you aminal? Not a thing. Stop being so anal, and judgemental.

They are good people, and do a great job of taking care of you aminals.

They steal tips from the groomers then when the groomers quit they harass the groomer's clients. Pathetic if you ask me!

I've been taking my dog to doggie daycare for over a year, and have not only NEVER had any problems. My dog has been worked with on some disciplinary issues that I had without my asking Complete Canine to do so, and subsequently without being charged. Paula is extremely knowledgeable and very good with the dogs. At no time have I seen even a hint of abuse or neglect. And the good word, that is, the truth is getting out there and people are noticing what a great facility it is. Even larger cities don't have a great service like doggie day care, so I feel lucky that not only does Rome have one, but has a GREAT one ! But I guarantee you that IF I see something wrong, THEY will be the first ones to hear about it, and if they don't correct it; legal action just might. But I don't foresee that happening.

I recently have been bringing my dog there and just yesterday picked him up with dried blood on his eyelid and his jaw is swollen and has a lump and have bites everywhere this facility is definitely a damn joke. Paula the owner is definitely a huge bitch and doesn't care about anyone or their animals. They claim to take such good care of those animals but they don't and they claim to watch them 24 seven but I've seen with my own eyes every night I pick my dog up they are not watching those dogs. That made it pretty clear when my dog came home with dried blood on his face and no one told me no one cleaned it and no one knew about it. And the second you show concern or ask questions the owner paula treats you like a baby gets mad and tells you you are over reacting to stop worrying. Oh no bitch my animals are my life so if I have concerns I'm going to ask questions. why don't you grow Up n actually get some licenses showing that you are capable of watching a dog. if I am paying you over $300 a month to watch my dog then you best watch him. Oh and they also refused to refund me the $120 of the days that I didn't even use that I paid ahead of time so they are very money hungry all they care about is your money they do not care about your animals like they claim they do.
It looks all clean and nice the first few times you see it but all they care about is getting you in there and taking your money. And to those of you losers who are on here claiming that is a good place it's pretty clear you guys are the owners any commonsense person who has a brain and actually cares about their animals would see right through them and no this is not a good place. After my dog was going there he was having bad dreams every time he fell asleep and coming home with scratches and bites and picking up very bad habits but yet they claim they are trainers ,yeah I don't think so. Just because your dog is excited to be there and can't wait to go in the room does not mean he is being treated well . my dog did the same thing but that's because he likes to be around other dogs not because its a good place. The owners are very disrespectful, Unqualified, untrained And they do nothing but lie to you. They tell you that they only hire people in their 30s who are well-trained and this is a lie. They tried selling the obedience training to me which is a one time deal n 2 hr training for over $300 Um can you say rip off? Plus they just tried talking me into getting a Christmas picture done of my dog and were going to charge me $20 for one picture. I can do better pictures at home for free. The bottom line is this facility is a huge joke and should not be taken lightly if you are reading one or more posting of people's actual bad experiences , then you people that are thinking of bringing your dog here please for the life and safety of your dog think twice. Because without a doubt you will be led right back to the site making a bad posting of your own. You can go to hell Paula and I will stop at nothing to make everyone aware of how horrible your services really are Because people deserve to know how their family members/pets are being treated. I hope your business get shutdown because you do not deserve to be around anyone pets when you obviously have no idea what you're doing. And for those of you that tell me I am wrong, you can go to hell and don't bother commenting because I won't be coming back to the site and feeding into your drama. I'm sorry to those of you who had bad experiences like I did it is definitely bullshit and no one should have to deal with that. Keep fighting for your babies, they depend on you.

Well I am not surprised. Unfortunately another animal hurt for the benefit of her own satisfaction wether it be money or control or both...She will take "your" hard earned money and use it to hire an attorney to defend her lies and manipulate the public into believing she is the one being wronfully accused.... "poor me" I have cancer and every one is being mean.... Everything that she accuses others of doing she is doing, defemation of character ohhh boy she is the master. She likes to intimidate, bully , and is very unhappy.Our animals need us to talk for them. And I am also willing to fight for it.
