I could not be happier with the results of training by Raquel Maartel of Happy Paws Dog Training LA. She provided an in-home intensive and one follow-up session. I have an 18-month old, 115lb. Great Dane, Emma, and the positive impact of the training was IMMEDIATE. Raquel understands how dogs "communicate" and is able to convey techniques easily to the owner. After just the initial session, I had the tools I needed to help Emma. She no longer charges toward the door when a visitor arrives, nor does she chase me up and down the stairs. She "listens" when I give commands. As a result, she is more relaxed and confident, and I'm delighted with the steady improvement of her behaviors. Raquel is professional, personable and absolutely committed to her work. Her unique approach WORKS! I highly recommend her. She is amazing!

Karen is amazing - she is attentive, informative, and very considerate of the concerns I have as a pet owner. She introduced training tactics to me that will help me establish a respectful relationship with my dog. It's training that is beneficial for both me and my dog. I can't wait to continue the working relationship with her and Abby!

DeeCee was great! She came to me in Malibu and worked with my puppy, Milo, for 90 minutes. She taught me how to be more firm but also incredibly loving with my puppy and how to prepare him for service dog training. She affirmed what I did right and corrected what I did wrong and did an altogether great job. Milo loved her too! Would recommend! Many thanks from us!

John was awesome with training me and my dog. John took the time to get to know our needs and current situation and also helped us with dog socialization. John is very knowledgable and offered great expert advice. He also helped us with introduction to a dog park and helped me to understand the things to look for when introducting my dog into a new environment such as a dog park. I would highly recommend John to all my friends family and anyone else. He definitely helped with positive reinforcement.

I first met Duane Overturf over 15 years ago, when he came to my home to train my dog Jumbuck. He assessed the dog immediately before deciding on the training. Training in the dog park followed the training at home. Apart from my dog having a wonderful character, he turned out to be one of my best dogs regarding obedience and reliability. About two years later he also came to our home to train Jumbuck's companion, a totally different type of dog, who also understood very quickly what was required of him. Duane has a knack for getting dogs to feel relaxed and make training enjoyable. He is very reliable, thorough, and i enjoyed working with him.

I have a Papillion, a "soft dog" by training standards, that needs basic training - crate, clicker, leash, and basic command training. Tim has been very professional and responsive answering texts around the clock. Tim really understands the dog's thought process and help us better communicate with our dog.

I first met Robert back in 1994, when he was living here in Lancaster, CA. At the time, I owned a pair of dogs - Sheba, a Bavarian Shepherd, and Princess, a Lab/Chow mix. As a loyal fan of the "Lassie" movies and TV series', I was well aware of the Weatherwax Family's "pedigree" (pardon the pun) with regard to dog training. So when Robert offered his assistance with the training of my animals, I jumped at the opportunity! The thing I remember most, is a statement he made before any training began. Robert told me that he would train ME to train my dogs, believing it was best for them to learn commands from me, their owner, not some stranger. His training methods were clever, patient, humane and well-thought-out, and worked like a charm. Soon, both dogs were well-behaved and obedient, following commands based on hand-signals only (a common practice with TV and movie animals)! While both dogs benefitted tremendously, Princess truly excelled, at one time able to follow nearly 20 different commands! All on hand-signals! Sadly, both dogs are long-gone to Doggy Heaven, but I've never forgotten them or the training methods I learned from Robert. I cannot offer a higher recommendation.

Steve Welch of K9 Dog Training came to visit us and spent a great deal of time detailing his program and how it works. Steve and his associate, Wendy, were friendly, kind and considerate. As a result we let Babe, are Boston Terrier, and deeply loved little girl go with them to Training. We know she is happy and safe and in caring hands. I feel certain she'll return with some good lessons learned.

Angela came to the house to help us with our new puppy training! From the minute she came in, we knew she was the perfect trainer! Our dog responded so well to her. 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!

Pawsability was above and beyond anything I could have imagined! I have a new rescue dog and I wanted to make sure she stayed in our home when we went away. We also wanted to start her off on some basic training so we hired Pawsability to come and take care of Sky. We had a meet and greet at my house and Theresa spent a good hour explaining her services and even giving us tips to help us w our new rescue. During the stay they took sky on the daily trips they do as part of the community daycare program and Sky got to be socialized and have "on the job" training with other dogs and new people. We were sent texts, videos and photos frequently with wonderful updates about sky's progress. My house was left beautifully and Theresa even washed the sheets and towels she used. She left a report and set up our final training session that was included in our board and train fee. Oh and the fee was extremely reasonable. When we returned home Our dog was happy, healthy and had learned the beginnings of obedience training. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend this service. We will definitely enroll Sky in their daycare as well.

We are very excited to get going on training our dog with Dave. He came to our house on Saturday, and spent over an hour discussing our dogs needs, and Dave's philosophy on training. (Free consultation) We were very impressed, and feel that he will be a great fit for our family.

Dave was such a great help to us in training our dog (or us, really)! He really took the time to explain the process and work with Sadie to overcome her fearful reaction to other dogs. She's made great progress & we look forward to more training sessions in the future. Highly recommended! Oh, and Sadie absolutely LOVES HIM.

Vince, Matt and Olivia are absolutely the best! I've had other training, but Epic truly defines the art of proper dog training with amazing results. They have been training my German Shepard for a few weeks and the results have been unbelievable. Sasha absolutely loves Matt! Thank you! Roger, Tustin Ca

Daryl is wonderful! He is super responsive and available. Answered all my questions promptly and sent me videos of my dog during the time he was being boarded and trained. Daryl is extremely professional and considers us part of his family. The dogs he works with are unbelievably well trained. It seems like he does a lot of personal protection dog training, although we took my Corgi puppy to him for obedience training. My puppy is very “willful” and needed an extra week of training and Daryl was incredibly accommodating for us. I couldn’t believe he would be willing to go the extra mile to make sure we and our dog are satisfied. Thanks Daryl!

Jo took care of our two Boston Terriers while we were away for four days. We have one senior dog in need of medication, one spastic five year old with endless energy, and we could not have been happier with Jo's care for them. She is not only professional and trustworthy, she is caring and has a natural bond with dogs. We didn't worry about them for a second while we were away because she sent us updates, pictures and funny little captions describing the dogs and what they were doing. I looked forward to hearing from Jo everyday. When we returned home, she had left the place completely spotless- she even cleaned off our porch and watered our plants. The dogs were happy to see us for about a minute and then went back to bed. They had a wonderful time. And, our neighbors loved her too! We are so satisfied and happy to have found Jo for our dogs. Now we can finally plan our honeymoon we put off because we didn't want to leave our old man Oscar alone.

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.

LeNai is a professional through and through and knows dogs amazingly well and can handle every size of dog. Walking, training, playing - she is a pro! But what really makes the difference for me, is that she is treating your dog like it is her own. She gives my Sasha so much love and helps her overcome her separation anxiety. She gives updates every day, and I can 100% rely on her. When I go on my trips, I have 100% peace of mind leaving my dog with LeNai.
