I am amazed with the excellent results I have experienced immediately after training with Raquel. I couldn't be more pleased!! Thanks to Raquel, our Morkie is already responding very well in less than a week. I would recommend Happy Paws to anyone.
We have our first puppy and we were struggling with many dog training issues (integration with two adult cats, potty training, biting, barking - the works!) and Karen was a great partner in helping us communicate better with our puppy and achieve great results. She is knowledgeable, passionate, and eager to make a difference.
DeeCee is awesome!! She truly is a dog lover and committed to her work. I needed help training my rescue dog to become a service dog and she did a wonderful job teaching us all the tips and tricks. She's very passionate about her work, which translates into great results when training your dog. She's very flexible and willing to help in any way she can. I highly recommend her. Thanks DeeCee!
General training not to be scard of people
Denise was great with my German Shepard name Misty. When I started with her Misty was jumping and pulling me where I could not control her. After two months I was able to train with her in 4 Paws for Patriots. She is now a certified service dog. We would not have been able to complete that task without her training. Vance Myers
I had the idea on the correct way to walk your dog but never understood how. Ralf weber gave me a boost of confidence on how to handle my APBT. I look forward in the futrure training sections and would absolutely recommend Ralf to anyone who needs help!
Robert (Robbie) and his Dad Robert Sr. always utilized the kindest techniques in dog training in Hollywood and abroad and always treated their dogs with love, dignity and respect. They are the "rockstars" of the industry.
Stefanie has trained 4 of my dogs over more than 10 years and I cannot sing her praises enough! She has true compassion for all animals and has rescued and found homes for countless number of dogs. She has a real gift of "talking" to the dogs -- she can read their personalities and they bond with her. She is experienced, professional, strict but kind and understands all breeds -- purebreds and mixed. She assesses the situation, background, needs, etc. of the owner/s as well as the dog and adjusts her training method accordingly. Above and beyond her dog training skills, Stefanie is a warm, principled, caring person. I consider her a friend as much as my dogs' trainer.
Melissa is an awesome dog training. Just from one session, we saw a difference in our dog Frankie. She also has walking services that helps our Frankie with his anxiety. And not to mention more training time on the leash when she takes him out for his midday walks. She's flexible and very accommodating. I highly recommend her! Thanks Melissa!
I wanted to let you know how valuable the beginners obedience training was for my Airedale, Toby, and me. Tobey is 15 months old and before I brought her to you, she was out of control. I’m not sure I was ready to admit that when we started but I soon realized it was true. After just one week the difference in her was remarkable. After six weeks, she was like a new dog. She can now be controlled and no longer has the bad habits I thought were just "being a puppy". I have learned what you already know, that it is easier to train Tobey than it is to train me! Thanks again for a wonderful experience and if you ever need a reference, please don’t hesitate to call me.
Tim did a great job training our Yorkie and he also taught us how to handle situations indoors and outdoors. Tim is very accessible, enthusiastic and caring. He is very reliable person and very punctual to his appointments. Best dog trainer in Los Angeles, CA!
Angela is training my little 14 week old Havanese. Toy breeds are always a challenge and she's done a great job so far. She's patient, knowledgeable and works with me with home work assignments in order to build on the lessons my pooch and I are learning. I would recommend Angela to any new dog owner.
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.
Love Ur K9 saved our relationship with our puppy. Our dog went through two trainers and destroyed an endless array of items in our house when we finally found Kevin and Love Ur K9. After training with Kevin, our dog is like a whole new pet - still playful and lovely, but obedient and a joy to have in the house.
Vince is very knowledgeable! I look forward to working with him training Triten!
We are so grateful for finding Dogwood K9 Training Experience and working with Ron. Our rescue dog, Jackson, was a stray with no prior training and some behavioral issues that we couldn’t address on our own. Jackson had human aggression towards males, did not listen to commands, jumped on furniture, nipping, chasing our cats, incessant barking, anxiety, the list goes on. By working with Ron we have learned how to address all of these issues through behavior modification training. The best part of working with Ron is that he makes it fun for the dog by using games as a primary means of training. Jackson loves going to Ron’s classes and surprisingly isn’t aggressive towards him in any way, probably due to Ron’s sweet and caring nature towards dogs that Jackson can sense. Ron’s training method starts with the basics and then we build upon the foundation using baby steps so that the dog progressively works up the full commands, while truly understanding them. Our dog’s behavior has done a 180 since we started training and he shows respect for us now. This is after a different trainer told us we should probably take our dog to the shelter because he is going to be too hard train (a lost cause, as they say). Ron’s ultra-positive attitude towards Jackson helped us see that although he is not a perfect dog, he is the perfect dog for us. Ron is a truly exceptional dog trainer. Don’t expect magic; it takes hard work to counter-condition a dog with bad habits like Jackson, but Ron’s expertise will equip you with all of the tools that you need to work with your dog. What I like about the classes is that Ron is training ME to work with my dog so that I can continue to use his tactics long after our classes end. Through his guidance I am creating a long-lasting bond with my dog based on respect, but mostly based on FUN! We love Dogwood!
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.
This review is long overdue. We worked with Dave a few months back and he is fantastic! My husband and I have a 19month old Goldendoodle who has had previous training, puppy training through Petsmart and Petco but none of it compared to the training we received from Dave. He is great at what he does and explains things in a way that make total sense, like why didn't I think of this before?! He uses positive reinforcement training, which was huge for us. Dave works with your schedule and is flexible, he emails you after every session to go over what you've learned and how to continue the training when he's not around. We see a total difference in our dog after having sessions with Dave, we are looking forward to having him back in the near future to continue our training!
Our dog, Coconut, received puppy training through Laguna Niguel City classes taught by Wendy, about two years ago. Ever since then, we have used Wendy's help for training, dog walking, as well as pet boarding services. There are a few major points to mention about Doggie Do Pet Services / Wendy Brookhyser: 1. She is very reliable, responsible, and caring. 2. Our dog, Coconut, absolutely loves and adores her. 3. Wendy is one of the best trainers we have seen. To our eyes, she is an expert in dog training and dog behavior. In addition to puppy training, Wendy helped us with Canine Good Citizen training, and Coconut passed the test with flying colors one year ago. 4. Last, but not least, when Coconut returns from pet boarding with Wendy, he has played so much that he sleeps for a day or two!!!
After working with David during the last couple of months, it's clear that he understands solution based approaches. Means different methods and solutions to each situation. Impressive training ability! David is very knowledgeable & his professional conduct gives way to his even friendlier demeanor. I can call him in between training sessions with any questions and he gives great care and concern to each call.
Daniele is an instinctual, thorough, heart centered, Cat & Dog Behaviorist / Whisperer. She has incredible knowledge about animals, she is literally a walking encyclopedia on the subject. Daniele has the ability to assess & evaluate your pet accurately based on their specific personality and then put together a complete training package to resolve any challenges you may be facing. Her process is quick, fun and very clear. She and her team are a complete one stop shop for pets. Anything you might need from nutritionalists, cage free doggie daycare, pet jewelry designers, homeopathic medicines and formulas, water therapists and even a pet massage therapist to mention a few. She is dedicated to not only your results but also to helping you get a deeper understanding of your pet so you'll be able to communicate to them more thoroughly with ease. I would highly recommend her with confidence to anyone who needs help with their pet... especially if it's a rescue pet she's AWESOME!
