To put it simply, you can spend hours and hours researching dog trainers but you will only be uneccessarily wasting time...you will not find better than Raquel. When I contacted her seven months ago, I was pretty desperate to find a solution for my Argentine Dogo's separation anxiety issues (incessant barking/howling/destructive behavior while I was at work... going crazy with excitement and jumping all over me to the point of scratching and bruising me when I arrived back home). Not only did she give me the tools and knowledge to completely alleviate these issues permanently, she did it within a two hour span of time AND showed me how to completely eradicate other behavioral issues my furry child and I were dealing with such as his leash pulling and throwing agitated, boredom-induced barking fits when I'd try to take him to outdoor, dog-friendly restaurants. Thanks to Raquel and her amazingly effective instruction, my pup and I constantly receive compliments and "ohhhs and ahhhs" in regard to how remarkably well behaved he is, and he's so quiet when I'm gone (no more separation anxiety nightmares :-)) that my neighbor (who was at his wits' end with the constant barking) said he thought for sure I had found a new home for Che (that's my handsome furry boy's name ;-)). I cannot thank Raquel enough and every time I receive compliments about Che being such a well behaved guy, I always tell people it's because of Raquel's help and I pass her info along to them. She has a wonderful gift and she's helping to enrich and improve the lives of each and every person and animal she works with. Don't take my word for it though...call her and see for yourself! :-)

Maggie is my fourth dog. I have had trainers with each of the dogs. Never have I had a more competent, compassionate and professional trainer as Karen. She taught Maggie to walk loose leash and not enter a room before more or my husband. I used to have to carry her everywhere. She's only 9 pounds but it got old really fast. I also had Karen board/train her for two days. She came back a different dog. When Karen came today for the beginning of training her to be a therapy dog. When Karen came for the beginning of training her to be a therapy dog, she got so excited when seeing Karen. Karen knows how to be firm yet kind with dogs. Dogs know it. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly than Karen. She is the best of the best. Barry K. Sherman Oaks

John is one of the best dog trainers that I've met. I have a three year old recently adopted American Eskimo with issues such as leash pulling, nipping people who doesn't give him attention, and general insecurity issues. I have seen other dog trainers trying to get help, but without result. John took the time to get to know my dog and evaluate him based on what he saw and previous conversations with me. He helped me understand my dog and what I need to do to help him. Apparently, I have a dog that thinks he's an alpha and he taught me how to address this. I need more classes to address my dogs leash pulling and more, and I am glad that John didn't try to address all issues in one session because I don't think that would have been very helpful in the long run. Training a dog is not done in an hour, it takes more time than that. I highly recommend John.

Our trainer Denise has been such a great help with our crazy puppy. We hired her when the pup was 5 months old . We were in desperate need of training . Our pup was pottying in the house even though we had designated a spot for her to go. It was exhausting cleaning up after her all day. With Denise's help and expertise , our pup has learned were to go potty and we have learned as well the importance of consistency . It is evident that Denise is gifted as a dog trainer and our experience with her has been very professional . It is obvious she loves animals and there is a gentle way to train. Thanks Denise With love from Summer and the Courtney family:)

Duane is a superb dog whisperer!!! I have worked with other dog trainers before but I have never met someone like Duane. It seems he has an incredible sensibility and ability to read each dog and know how to communicate with them. I just got my Stella, 5 year old English Bulldog, returned home after 5 weeks of board and training by Duane. Stella was very aggressive with other dogs and small children. She had virtually no obedience training whatsoever and never socialized with other dogs. I always had to warn approaching strangers, especially if they had a dog, that Stella was "not so friendly". Then a 8 week old chocolate Lab puppy came into our life and turned our home life upside down. Stella was very jealous and aggressive towards the puppy. My poor puppy was scared to death and something had to be done. Duane took Stella and trained her in his home for four weeks and the fifth week, I sent Henry to Duane for a week to be with Stella so that they could get acquainted and may be bonded. Frankly, I wasn't too sure whether Stella could change. I had a back up plan for the puppy in case the board and training with Duane did not work out. I am so happy that Stella and Henry are back home and they get along so beautifully, thanks to Duane!! It is so wonderful to have two dogs in the house without any tension. Duane is very professional, honest and very easy to work with. He answered all my questions, my numerous phone calls were never ignored, and I felt at ease about the whole process. It is clear to me that Duane loves and cares deeply about the dogs he trains and dogs love him back. Duane followed up with the second visit to our home today, and both Stella and Henry were so happy to see him. Stella actually wanted to follow Duane out as if she wanted to go with him. I have never seen Stella act like this with anyone outside her own family. We are so pleased and happy that we found Duane and can not recommend him highly enough. He is the real Dog Whisperer! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Duane!!!

Dan was fast to respond to my inquiry for a dog trainer. He gave me a free evaluation and consultation over the phone. My dog Harley was out of control, barking, jumping and crazy around other dogs. In 3 sessions Harley is a totally different dog. He made training fun and was very flexible for appointments !! Thanks Dan

Steve is an incredible, elite master trainer. He holds the key to unlocking all of your dogs' best attributes. He has done wonders for my dogs, and I have witnessed him doing even more for others. There's nothing that this man can't fix about your dog. But, you must be willing to put in the time and do what it takes to maintain. I have two mixed breeds (brother and sister) that have severe separation anxiety, when they weren't near each other. They were completely co dependent on each other, fearful and extremely sensitive to everything around them. They would whine and bark when separated. Steve had them for less than two weeks, and now they have no problem, at all being separated. He taught me how to build their confidence, and help them succeed. Which has made training them in obedience much easier. They now have the will to work, and the desire to learn more. As do I. He has inspired me so much that it has now become my passion, and I am now his apprentice. What I love most about the way that he trains, is that he is very gentle and patient with the dogs. He is by far more concerned with the dogs' well-being than anything else. He can be pretty tough on the owners, but once you come to realize why, you really can't be mad at him. The issues that your dog has, are typically there because of you. Your dog is a mirror of yourself. Once you've accepted that, you can then both change together, building the bond between you and your dog even stronger. But, you must be part of the change in order for it to work. Wendy is my senior master trainer, and I have learned so much already from both of them. They have taught me beginner and advanced obedience, behavior work, tracking, scent detection, how to show in AKC competitions, how to train movie dogs, and much more. Through the skills that I have acquired from them, I am now teaching my own classes and training dogs daily, using the same incredible methods that these amazing dog trainers have taught me. I highly recommend Steve and Wendy, and all of their trainers to anyone who truly cares for their dog.

Every single time she comes to the house, she is punctual, professional, super friendly, and great at what she does! You will not be disappointed. She is a dog whisperer!

Great people. Great service. Our dogs go out on 2 hour socialization hikes or trips to a park, 3 days/wk. And they go for neighborhood walks, 2-3 days/wk. I rest assured that they are getting excercise and are with experienced, knowledgeable, caring people. Even when walking or playing with several dogs, they are aware of each dog's needs. I trust them to drop off, pick up, or feed my dogs when no one is home. Both of my guys get very excited when Theresa or Brad come to the door. They have been a part of our lives for well over a year and we are very grateful.

Love Ur K9 is the best decision I ever made for my Mini Australian Shepherd, Camo. I cannot say enough how good they have been to me, and my dog. I am forever grateful for everything they have done for us. Here's the full story: I heard about Kevin through a friend who had a great experience after her dog was trained by Kevin. I was looking for a dog trainer who could not only help with obedience training my three month old puppy, but also work on some dominance behavior issues. I had read so many books on raising a puppy, and also grew up in a family with many dogs so I thought I knew what I was doing. Our first meeting with Kevin was in our home, where he met Camo, and got a better understanding of our home setup and routines. It is also where Camo was comfortable and displaying some early signs of dominant behavior. Kevin immediately picked up on this and made some changes to the way in which we interact with Camo. We started puppy behavior and obedience training that same week. Kevin also trained us as handlers, so that we understood the training and could repeat it at home, that way Camo would not be able to default back to bad behaviour. When Camo was 9 months old, we heard that we had to move to Australia for my husband's work. There was no way that I could make the move without Camo. Australia is extremely strict with importing pets, and theres a six month intensive preparation of vet checks, and massive costs involved before dogs are allowed to enter the country. We had to leave two months after we heard the news so we had to make a plan for Camo in the meant time. Kevin took Camo into his home for four months, looking after him, doing service dog training with him, and helping with many arrangements to get Camo reunited with us. Camo joined us in Australia in June and I am elated to have my best friend back by my side once again. He is still full of personality, but by far the most obedient, trained and socialised dog in Melbourne!!! THANK YOU Love Ur K9, from the bottom of our hearts!!!

If I could leave more stars, I would. Daryl worked with our German Shepherd Lexi who was a rescue with severe fear and aggression issues. Daryl worked with Lexi and our family so we could provide the best environment for Lexi. We were able to enjoy our pet and Lexi became more confident and less stressed. We continued our training and are in contact with Daryl. Daryl is honest with his assessment and will not sugar coat anything. Lexi was never afraid of Daryl and I could see the bond and respect they had for each other. Whether basic training, fear or aggression issues or whatever you need, Daryl and his crew at America's Best Dog Trainers will be there to help because they genuinely care for your animal and its wellbeing. Thank you for helping our family. Please don't hesitate to call him.

I have been using her services since my puppy was 6 months, and he is now 3 1/2 years old. She has been watching my dog for the past three years, and my dog is quite picky on what he likes and doesn't like! What I like the most about her services is that she is VERY flexible, many times I have last minute jobs, and she is ALWAYS readily available to take him in. I also enjoy that she sometimes has other small dogs for him to play with, but not where it is overwhelming like a doggie daycare (my dog likes to be just with one person or dogs similar to his sweet temperament). He always wags his tail when I drop him off, and is always happy to see her daughter (my dog loves kids). When I pick him up, he is always tired and passes right out once I leave to go back home, meaning he had fun and was busy while staying over. She also caters do his diet and bathroom regime. She makes sure that when you leave your dog with her, that your dog is treated the same way as you would treat him/her. I would highly recommend her services especially if your dog is picky and you want that more personal touch in a doggie day care service.

I tried using a treat trainer but our dog still did not listen. Mike and Off Leash K9 Training Los Angeles were able to get the control over our dog that we wanted. The Off Leash team were there every step of the way and now we have a dog that listens each and every time.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
