I did a LOT of research on line and talking to people! We were looking for someone with experience and success. Raquel was that person. She trains not only the dog but us as well! She believes in a 1 day intensive training session. I know it sounds unbelievable but just wait! The training began as soon as she walked in. We have a 10 month old Labradoodle. "Guido" He has a ton of energy and not all good.. destructive chewing... jumping up on people... Not able to walk without extreme pulling. I thought there is no way she can help us with all this in one day, but we gave Raquel a shot. Raquel really listened to us and our concerns asking us our goals for Guido... We said a loving dog that can go on walks and plop down beside us at a cafe... too much.. I don't think so! Well this is the most amazing thing. After giving us so much information and actual working with us and Guido... our little guy was already showing great improvement!!! We went for a walk and Guido was great! Tip- take great notes or video your session! So much great information. Also with the intensive training you have life long access to Raquel via emails or phone calls or videos. On a personal note. Raquel is awesome. She has a really great vibe about her. Like a friend you have known for years. And Guido just loved her. We can not say enough about Raquel and Happy Paws Dog Training LA. Two days after we met with Raquel. Guido is not jumping up on me when I Get home from work. My husband says he is walking like a pro! And he seems to be much calmer. Do yourself a favor and hire this woman. Worth every penny!!

I felt like Happy Dog Training was a perfect match for our family and our new dog Shadow. Shadow is doing great and I feel like I now know more about what I need to do to keep Shadow happy and calm. Thank you.

I needed help with my 8 year old Goldien Retriever becaused he nipped someone at the apartment complex where I live and was told I could no longer keep my companion dog. I immediately signed up with Dog Services Unlimited (found on line) to see if they could help. They offered a private training one hour weekly at the apartment complex so he could be specifically trained at his home and the apartment grounds. Patty signed me up immediately and Khara came right away to evaluate the situation and start training. It only took 3 sessions to learn so much especially how to anticipate a potential situation and handle it immediately. My dog responded well and actually seemed relieved that he no longer had to be constantly on guard because I was in charge. Khara addressed every issue possible and her style of training reinforced my learning. Ultimately, my dog was allowed to stay at my apartment. I was so pleased with the training that I am starting a group training with Dog Services Unlimited to help my dog be more social. I know he will do well. What surprised me was how an 8 year old dog, set in his ways, could learn so easily and happily. Thank you Dog Services Unlimited.

Whether your puppy is excitable, your dog is barking and lunging, or your pooch is shaking in his boots, my goal is to help you discover the calmer canine within. I offer early puppy socialization classes, AKC STAR Puppy Classes, as well as continued socialization/off-leash obedience training classes for dogs 16 weeks and up. I also run a specialized group class for fearful and/or reactive/aggressive dogs as an extension of customized in-home training plans. In-home training may be done with or without the owner present, depending on the issue(s) that need to be addressed. With eight years of professional dog training experience, my training methodology includes creating a strong line of communication and trust between you and your dog using positive-reinforcement based techniques, while setting clear and consistent boundaries for him/her. I regularly attend seminars and conferences in order to stay completely up-to-date with advances in training techniques. I am also licensed, bonded and insured. My main service area is central Orange County (cities including and within the borders of Huntington Beach to Orange to Mission Viejo to Newport Beach, and I offer a discount for private training at my facility (when appropriate) in Costa Mesa. I also offer discounts to veterans, senior citizens, and persons with disabilities.

Damien was very quick to respond and easy to get along with. I was having some issues with one of two dogs and he worked with them both. I got outstanding results and he was very accommodating. He came to my house or came to the dog park or anywhere I thought was a good location. He was flexible and super knowledgable. At times, I had questions or problems and I would text him and he would respond very quickly. It was truly amazing. He felt much more like a friend than a dog trainer. Thanks Damien!
