Dog Training

Also Value and punctuality ! She REALLY listened to me understanding my concerns with my puppy , she explained what would be going on during the lessons , she also said if the puppy or my husband and myself didn't understand we would go over it again . This is just the type of dog trainer we need !

Dog Training

We’ve just begun and have established a plan to guide my dog toward better behavior. Her previous experiences did not include training or even walking on a leash. Lots of work ahead.

I can't say enough good things about what they did for my Bug and me! He's already a happier, more obedient and confident little man. My positive review is not only based on his outcome towards the end of training, but everything that led up to this point. The ease of scheduling appointments, responsiveness, and communication has been amazing the whole way through. On a personal level, both Kim and Monika have been amazing. Bug was a little unsure at first why a strange person was telling him to do things, but I instantly liked them both and felt at ease with them in my home and when out alone with my dog. Plus... Monika takes the best pictures of your pooches! Real Life Dog Training has the highest recommendations possible from this client!

I would highly recommend Monika for your dog training. She drove from Temecula to OC for two weeks to work with Luna. That’s dedication! I suggest you attending as many sessions as possible after the first. This helped me learn to be consistent with the training and prepare for when the sessions were over. The training service is definitely worth the investment, our pets are family. Get it!

My fiancé and I have been working with Kim for about a month now. We have 2 dogs! One smaller and one Larger. There was so many dynamics within our dogs and their personalities and how they interact and dominate over each other etc. We couldn’t do it alone and needed the tools necessary. We reached out to Kim and she is just so understanding and makes you feel like family. She’s so calm around all dogs. She instantly connected with both of our dogs. My larger dog is scared of anyone the first time it takes her a few times to warm up. It took her 2 times to love on Kim, now when she sees her she gets this rush that’s awesome to see and can’t stop loving her. Then their is our smaller Yorkie mix who loves everyone but has very bad separation anxiety. Now he’s a young chap that is building so much confidence. She taught us how to address it, when to look for it and how to do it with her method Called “outcome based method of training” it doesn’t compromise your dogs happiness because you want your dog to show personality but don’t want them to be straight police dog either. You want them to obey when you need them too. Our dogs have made massive improvements and we couldn’t be more happier and Kim is worth every dollar! She’s always available for certain scenarios that may alarm you. She’s the best! P.s By the way implement the words she uses I know we can use any words for commands but the words she uses for some odd reason tend to hold more weight when giving a command and our fur babies love it!! Thanks Kim! ❤️
