I would highly recommend hiring Raquel! She was amazing. My dog Kona would constantly bark at any stranger that would enter the house. On walks she would bark at dogs, people, bikes or anything else that came past us. I didn't know how to correct this behavior. She had never gotten to the point where she had bitten anyone however I knew I needed to do something about the situation before it got worse. Within an hour of Raquel coming to my house Kona was a changed dog. We took her on a walk and after some correcting from Raquel, Kona was walking calmly by my side. I was almost in shock! When she left I was given exercises to work on with Kona in order to improve even more. Most importantly she trained me as the owner by giving me the proper tools on how to correct the behavior. It will take a lot of work and practice which doesn't just happen over night. I hope to eventually be able to take her to any dog friendly places we can go. I am so grateful and glad that I chose Raquel. With her one visit she was able to do more than many of the other dog training places that offer multiple classes. Spend the money right the first time and hire Raquel

Karen is amazing - she is attentive, informative, and very considerate of the concerns I have as a pet owner. She introduced training tactics to me that will help me establish a respectful relationship with my dog. It's training that is beneficial for both me and my dog. I can't wait to continue the working relationship with her and Abby!

I have a Papillion, a "soft dog" by training standards, that needs basic training - crate, clicker, leash, and basic command training. Tim has been very professional and responsive answering texts around the clock. Tim really understands the dog's thought process and help us better communicate with our dog.

Steve Welch of K9 Dog Training came to visit us and spent a great deal of time detailing his program and how it works. Steve and his associate, Wendy, were friendly, kind and considerate. As a result we let Babe, are Boston Terrier, and deeply loved little girl go with them to Training. We know she is happy and safe and in caring hands. I feel certain she'll return with some good lessons learned.

Angela came to the house to help us with our new puppy training! From the minute she came in, we knew she was the perfect trainer! Our dog responded so well to her. 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!

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.

We are very excited to get going on training our dog with Dave. He came to our house on Saturday, and spent over an hour discussing our dogs needs, and Dave's philosophy on training. (Free consultation) We were very impressed, and feel that he will be a great fit for our family.

Philip came to my house to evaluate my dog. We had training sessions in a fenced area where we taught her basic commands and walking on a leash. He and his wife/cotrainer helped us to get Siri through basic training and walking on roads and sidewalks. He is excellent in communicating how to effectively get your dog to listen and obey commands. I have enjoyed our training sessions and recommend anyone who wants one on one training to go to Philip,

Maureen was very responsive to texts/calls/emails. She made sure to address the individual needs of my family/pet. She packed in so much information into just one session and provided us with some unexpected extras. We have already seen an improvement in our puppy's behavior after one session. I love her positive approach to modifying behavior. She was also super patient with us (first time dog parents). We had some very basic questions but she spent extra time with us to make sure we were set before she left. Will definitely use her again and refer friends in need of doggy help.

Vince, Matt and Olivia are absolutely the best! I've had other training, but Epic truly defines the art of proper dog training with amazing results. They have been training my German Shepard for a few weeks and the results have been unbelievable. Sasha absolutely loves Matt! Thank you! Roger, Tustin Ca

Audrey scheduled us right away for a consultation to help with our food aggressive dog. Within one week using her training and tips any family member can pull our dogs food away with out getting biten or even a growl. Our German Shepard will now wait patiently in a calm "sit" position till we put his food back for him. Looking forward to more training!

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.

Amazing! David was amazing with my dog. I had a dog who had several issues on top of not having any obedience. We tried other trainers before him and they couldn't help him. We finally found David and he did a wonderful job. He got our dog to stop lunging, barking, tearing up our things, helped us build a bond, and taught him obedience commands. I am very grateful for everything he's done.

I tried using a treat trainer but our dog still did not listen. Mike and Off Leash K9 Training Los Angeles were able to get the control over our dog that we wanted. The Off Leash team were there every step of the way and now we have a dog that listens each and every time.
