I could not be happier with the results of training by Raquel Maartel of Happy Paws Dog Training LA. She provided an in-home intensive and one follow-up session. I have an 18-month old, 115lb. Great Dane, Emma, and the positive impact of the training was IMMEDIATE. Raquel understands how dogs "communicate" and is able to convey techniques easily to the owner. After just the initial session, I had the tools I needed to help Emma. She no longer charges toward the door when a visitor arrives, nor does she chase me up and down the stairs. She "listens" when I give commands. As a result, she is more relaxed and confident, and I'm delighted with the steady improvement of her behaviors. Raquel is professional, personable and absolutely committed to her work. Her unique approach WORKS! I highly recommend her. She is amazing!
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!
DeeCee was great! She came to me in Malibu and worked with my puppy, Milo, for 90 minutes. She taught me how to be more firm but also incredibly loving with my puppy and how to prepare him for service dog training. She affirmed what I did right and corrected what I did wrong and did an altogether great job. Milo loved her too! Would recommend! Many thanks from us!
John was awesome with training me and my dog. John took the time to get to know our needs and current situation and also helped us with dog socialization. John is very knowledgable and offered great expert advice. He also helped us with introduction to a dog park and helped me to understand the things to look for when introducting my dog into a new environment such as a dog park. I would highly recommend John to all my friends family and anyone else. He definitely helped with positive reinforcement.
Denise is amazing! From the moment we first met, we knew we made the a great choice for our pups. We have two dogs, one is 5 and the other is 9 months. Denise is really hands on in her approach to dog training and we learned so much from our time with her. We are much more confident in teaching our dogs how to behave and they are much happier with the new rules we have set in place. Thanks Denise!!
I first met Duane Overturf over 15 years ago, when he came to my home to train my dog Jumbuck. He assessed the dog immediately before deciding on the training. Training in the dog park followed the training at home. Apart from my dog having a wonderful character, he turned out to be one of my best dogs regarding obedience and reliability. About two years later he also came to our home to train Jumbuck's companion, a totally different type of dog, who also understood very quickly what was required of him. Duane has a knack for getting dogs to feel relaxed and make training enjoyable. He is very reliable, thorough, and i enjoyed working with him.
Great working with Melissa. She is professional, kind and really helped me with training my dog. Thanks, Melissa.
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.
I didn't realize that there are many aspects to training a dog. Lulu had prior training, and working those techniques into the training with a personal trainer was sometimes confusing for me. It is true, you have to teach the owner of the dog!!! You must be determined to work with your dog every day, positive mind, and learn to relax yourself and your dog!!! I learned some new techniques, that will help me in my training of Lulu. With so much information, and an hour worth of time, I did feel overwhelmed. But was given paperwork on each activity we did. Which was emailed to me. I would suggest to space your classes, making sure your pup understands the lesson before scheduling the next class.
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.
Dave was such a great help to us in training our dog (or us, really)! He really took the time to explain the process and work with Sadie to overcome her fearful reaction to other dogs. She's made great progress & we look forward to more training sessions in the future. Highly recommended! Oh, and Sadie absolutely LOVES HIM.
Basic obedience training , and training my dog not to pull on the leash.. Philip and Michelle Kaough were awesome with my dog. I would highly recommend Philip and Michelle to people with new puppies. They have a true understanding of dogs and their underlying motivators. They helped my husband and I see how vital structure and consistency is for Bo's happiness and well being. I really hope in the furture that we get to continue to the next level of training class with them.
Petra is great and very patient with our dog Tobi that doesn’t get along with our cat but already after 3 lessons is improving and also learning obedience commands!
Daryl is wonderful! He is super responsive and available. Answered all my questions promptly and sent me videos of my dog during the time he was being boarded and trained. Daryl is extremely professional and considers us part of his family. The dogs he works with are unbelievably well trained. It seems like he does a lot of personal protection dog training, although we took my Corgi puppy to him for obedience training. My puppy is very “willful” and needed an extra week of training and Daryl was incredibly accommodating for us. I couldn’t believe he would be willing to go the extra mile to make sure we and our dog are satisfied. Thanks Daryl!
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.
I met DANIELE LARGO outside my bank about a year and a half ago. She had such a beautiful, uplifting energy about her. I thought she was so beautiful and happy, and I just wanted to get to know her. She has such an inviting demeanor; we just started talking. Somehow we ended up talking about dogs. She is a remarkable person and dog whisperer extraordinaire. We have three cute little white rescue dogs and have been putting up with a lot of mischief from them. We'd call one and he/she would turn and walk the other way; plus, two different dogs each thought they were the alpha! We had toileting problems, too much unwanted barking, they were impossible to walk, you get the picture. We love them so much - Jack, J.J. and Kate. We're planning to move sometime soon, and for so long I'd been thinking about what to do about our doggie situation. I knew I needed to do something - SOON. Sweet Daniele had been keeping in touch with me during the gap since meeting, but momentarily I had forgotten about Danielle's special talent. Surprise, she called me the next day! Since we started working with Daniele things have really changed around here. We see the changes as each day goes by. Joe and I have worked with the dogs in all the ways she has taught us and it has really paid off. Yes, people need to get engaged in the learning process along with their pets. We have learned so much about understanding dog behavior, an essential part of having a great relationship with your precious baby. Danielle is so in-tune with our dogs and the ways we all relate together, that she understands what's going on with all of us. They each have different issues and they all love Daniele. They are anxious to please her, and now they focus with us much better also. Each one has really stepped up and they are falling into line as a cohesive family unit. We already have less barking, less toileting problems, less jealousy, and more obedience. Our home is happier and calmer thanks to this special lady. We highly recommend her for anyone having problems with their animals, or, if they just want to have a better trained dog, or other issues. Daniele has also helped our doggies, and Joe and I to better health with the Protandim she carries. What a difference! She has so many great ideas that have helped us accomplish our goals, for our doggies and ourselves. We couldn't be happier that we engaged Daniele to help us. Call Daniele, she's worth more than you can imagine...you won't be sorry! With Gratitude, Carole and Joe Wike
Great dog training - Marge is awesome with dogs and people! She comes to your home, always gives a reminder text and is always reliable. Love them!
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.
LeNai is a professional through and through and knows dogs amazingly well and can handle every size of dog. Walking, training, playing - she is a pro! But what really makes the difference for me, is that she is treating your dog like it is her own. She gives my Sasha so much love and helps her overcome her separation anxiety. She gives updates every day, and I can 100% rely on her. When I go on my trips, I have 100% peace of mind leaving my dog with LeNai.
