Overall Kevin has a lot of knowledge in dog training and worked very well with us and our dog. The only downside would be his punctuality.

Executive Canine Services has been a real find for our family and our German Shepard. I have often felt reluctant to have typical "dog walkers" take Apollo out. When I heard about Executive Canine's Training Walks, I thought that's what we needed. Apollo is enjoying play time away from home but getting additional obedience during these activities. Our family has notices a big improvement in temperament and overall behavior.

In our search for training for our 4 dogs we found Didi. Little did we know Didi is just what we were looking for! We did dot realize the difference between obedience training and a behavior training. She has taught us how to teach our dog proper behavior. Didi gives us Lessons that are easy to understand and complete with our dogs. I highly recommend California Canine!

I've been working with Faith since getting my puppy this year and it has been excellent! Training is always a work in progress of course but my dog has benefited so much from training with her! We've been able to work on basic obedience, move onto advanced skills and work on issues specific to my dog. I frequently get compliments about how well behaved my dog is. I would highly recommend Faith to anyonewho is in need of a dog trainer. She is wonderful and a wealth of knowledge & expertise!

WOW!! What a great experience. Presley (One Fine Canine) met and exceeded my expectations at every level. I've worked with several dog trainers in the past, and I have to say this by far was the most successful training that we've had. One thing that I really liked is that she listened to my concerns. Presley is extremely knowledgeable and was able to share that knowledge with me in a way that I could clearly understand. You can tell that Presley is very passionate about what she does and the animals and owners that she helps. Plus my dog (Tucker) loved her. I will definitely call Presley again if the need for additional training arises.

We met with Kevin for an initial consultation for our 2 boxers. In the short time he spent with us, our dogs learned so very much. Kevin showed an instant connection with our boys and we are excited to start working with him. He was able to answer all our questions and provide honest answers.

Heather helped with obedience training my beagle, who is very stubborn. They did verbal commands, leash training, house training and manners, and Heather has had a lasting positive influence on my dog. She is very professional and thorough, and she brings real experience and methodology to create a personalized training outline, which helps maintain the behaviors. 10/10, would recommend again.

We have a black lab who we got when he was 7 weeks old. When we got him, we were told that he had a mellow personality and that he would be calm. This was not true. Our puppy was a handful, high energy, and out of control. We tried classes, and a trainer, and things did not improve. We found Juniper, and she turned the situation around. She is excellent with dogs and puppies. She was able to provide the right training for our dog, which included positive reinforcement, and proper exercise and diet. Juniper also gave us a lot of pointers about how to interact with our dog. One of our challenges was that our dog had no attention span. Juniper taught us how to do mental training exercises with our dog that enabled him to increase his attention span. And he really enjoyed these too. Theo is still a high energy dog, but he is also obedient and fun to be around. Juniper found a dog park nearby, and we take him every week for a vigorous game of fetch, which he loves. We now live in the house in a more harmonious way and we are very grateful. It took a lot of human and dog social skills to transform our complicated situation into something that works. Juniper has what it takes to understand both your dog and you.

Chris worked our Lab-mix, Zoe, to stop her habit of jumping on people. Chris is professional, observant, and patient. And, most importantly her training is based on kindness. She was able to assess both Zoe's and our particular needs and worked accordingly to help us. Throughout our session Chris took her time not only teaching Zoe, but also teaching us. And, Chris has given us further support through a follow-up e-mail checking on Zoe's progress. With Chris's help we are well on our way to success!

Our dog,Bambi, stays at Tug Dogs for a month at a time when we go out of town, a few times a year. Sometimes she is also there for a shorter stay. She is treated like a member of the family, with kindness, love and respect, The care, training and socialization she receives there is far superior to any she has had from other trainers. We have total confidence that she is in the best place she could possibly be! The care Bambi gets at Tug Dogs is way above the highest rating on your scale! We recommend Tug Dog without reservation!!!

Micaela came to our house to work with our two dogs, both about 2 1/2 years old and in need of some basic obedience and leash training. She had a great way with the dogs, was very observant of their behavior and temperaments, and was patient with both them and me! That last part was important because some of the training techniques do not seem intuitive to me. Additionally, Micaela followed up with an email that reviewed what we had done and included specific instructions about how we should work with the dogs. It's only been one session, but I was very pleased.

About

I have been training dogs for 55 years. I have trained in most every disciplines. My training is based on not only the dog but also the owners. Your lifestyle and your dog must work together. The breed or mix of breeds also determine your dogs behavior. This combination of factors are essential to that well behaved dog. I don't believe in robot training for your dog and know that you train a Terrier, including pit bulls, different that you train a Poodle. I have had German Shepherds, Smooth Fox Terriers, Manchester Terriers, Whippet, Poodle, Afghan Hounds and Borzoi. I am now an American Kennel Club judge and also judge international shows.
