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.

Denise started training my older Dog Ramsey who was very hard to walk because he is dog aggressive! But within days he was so much better. We really appreciate her knowledge of training animals. And her love and patience with them.

Ralf is a great trainer. Prior to his services, we tried a few dog trainers and we were not successful in modifying our dog's behavior in terms of potty training and walking on a leash. When we had our first visit, it was just an hour long and he went over the basics of crate training and how to change a dog's behavior. Initially, I iust wanted a few sessions however after meeting him and how he was towards our dog, I signed up for the whole training package. What's great about the package is he has a check off list (sit, come, stay, go to your place, etc) and he goes at your dog's learning pace; if it takes 2 weeks for your dog to learn come, then so be it. Also throughout (and even after) the training sessions, I would have lots of questions being a new dog owner. He would text or schedule a time for us to discuss the questions I had. The package also includes sessions about holistic approaches to dog health; very informative. Highly recommended.

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!!!

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.

Because the training went so well, I enrolled her in Santa Monica Paws Doggy Daycare and it's amazing!! Thank you Santa Monica Paws for being amazing, trustworthy and just all around THE BEST!!

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!

Tommy Stark is by far the best dog trainer I have ever known. He's extremely knowledgeable and always helpful. I have a large male Rottweiler who is an absolute joy to have in every and all situations due to Tommy's training. Anytime I've ever had a question about our dog Tommy is always there to help. I highly recommend Tommy Stark. He is the best of the best! Just ask Gronk.

The Dawson Family loves Love Ur K9! Kevin and his team have done wonders with our dog. Since we've had Love Ur K9 help us train our beagle, our beagle can stay in down position for an hour, walk by our side with her head up on leash, and can control her howling. The best part about Love Ur K9 is that this team heavily involves the owners; they'll teach you about the training they are doing with your dog, so that when your dog comes home, you can continue to improve upon your dog's behavior!

The training was amazing and better than we could have hoped. She did more for our dog than we or any other trainer has done before. She set us on the best path to help our dog become confident and not so nervous and scared. We’ve already seen improvements and look forward to seeing her get more comfortable with strangers and being outdoors. We plan on working with her more in the future. I would highly recommend her!!!

My dog is very aggressive towards other dogs. It gotten to the point that I couldn’t take her hiking with me anymore because of the glares and mean comments I got from other people. I also got anxiety just taking her on a walk around my neighborhood. Once we started working with Epic Dog Pros we have been able to go out in public without any complaints.

I had a consultation with Dave. My fur babies took to him as soon as he walked in. He was very calm and professional and very honest. He didn’t come in with a pitch of why he would be the best trainer, we just had a conversation and it felt very natural and comfortable. After hearing my concerns, he told me what he thought the problem was and how we can try to fix it. I am confident that he is the best trainer for my dogs and I will start training with him very soon.

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!

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.

If you are looking for a reliable, professional dog trainer that gets you results, Ayumi is hands down the best in the business. Our little fur monster, Rollie, had social behavior issues when we first adopted him. After being recommended by a friend, we decided to put Rollie through Ayumi's program. I really wished I would've found Ayumi earlier. We discovered a whole new side of Rollie we had never seen before. The transformation is truly incredible. Thank you, Ayumi!
