  3. #3 Nate Dog Training

    (51 reviews)

    Thumbtack Customer

    Nate is a great guy with a true love for all dogs. He easily relates to people and dogs. Within the first lesson we could already see a change with our 6 1/2 year old dog. He's helping us to work out separation anxiety issues as well as aggressiveness with other dogs. We are still a work in progress but know we will have success with Nate!

  5. #5 I love your Dog Pet Services

    (29 reviews)

    Sandra H.

    Kim is a true "dog whisperer." She knows the workings of puppy brain and has given us excellent tips on how to deal with our golden. Brady was afraid of the doggy door so we were constantly at his beck and call. Kim got him using it the first day! He is calmer, walks well with us now, and pretty much stopped the nipping. He sits on command and is learning to lay down. What a change. Thank you, Kim!!

  6. #6 Dog Training By Cat

    (23 reviews)

    Douglas S.

    Since most dog training is for the owners and not the pet, Cat knows how to train both animal and owner. What I love about her methods is that they are all non aggressive or punitive. She could be Scottsdale's Dog Whisper she is so good.

    Mike W.

    We just finished our first Basic Obedience class with OffLeash K9 Training . We were very happy with Denise and her training techniques. As expected, she spent as much time training us as she did the dog. Looking forward to more classes.

  9. #9 Lorenzo's Dog Training Team

    (9 reviews)

    Thumbtack Customer

    We came to Galen with a 1.5 year old Lab mix rescue named Murphy. We were not up to the challenges he came with - resource guarding, alpha and defiant behaviors aka general civil disobedience. We had no control. We tried to gain authority with basic obedience classes at PetCo but soon realized we needed more help when he snapped in defiance and over things he "hoovered" off the ground. Their treat based training did not work for us as he knew when we did or did not have the treats. So when Galen came to the house for the intro/demo and said things like "one command, one response" and not a treat based program, I was on board. Her training methods were effective, direct, and matched the level of need. I gave her a crazy wish-list of things I want of a family dog that far exceeded even my best dog in the past and she didn't even blink. No problem. You will have that dog. Really? Yes. She worked with him for 2 weeks but the heavy lifting was on the people training she did with us and him. This is where it had to click. Through this, she was patient, clear, direct, and reassuring. She explained the "why" behind what he was doing. Murphy is a nice little member of the family now instead of the frustration and stressful inducing dog that we wanted to send back to the shelter (not easy to admit that but it was that bad). I highly recommend Galen. When people say what a nice dog he is and how well behaved he is, how walking him is a joy not an event, I know the time, money, and work paid off. This IS an investment but you can't lose unless you don't do your part. Now, he still offers challenges now and again but we are now better equipped to handle what he has got up his sleeve. Galen is GREAT at her job with these challenging behavioral issues and fully endorse her work. There is no reason to not have a well behaved, well adjusted dog with Galen around. I have my wish-list dog.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Spot On Obedience Training

(11 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I absolutely love the joy I get from helping my human and canine customers to have the best possible relationship with each other and the world. I also love teaching clients about working with their dogs in an effective way that encourages communication and obedience.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I was in corporate America for most of my working life. In 2004, I was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (cancer). After the treatment was completed, I started changing many things in my life including my occupational path. For the first time, I was doing what I really loved which is working with animals. My pet sitting service company has been operating for several years already when clients started asking me about dog training. I found out that I had a pretty good instinct in resolving pet behavior issues.
