John is one of the best dog trainers that I've met. I have a three year old recently adopted American Eskimo with issues such as leash pulling, nipping people who doesn't give him attention, and general insecurity issues. I have seen other dog trainers trying to get help, but without result. John took the time to get to know my dog and evaluate him based on what he saw and previous conversations with me. He helped me understand my dog and what I need to do to help him. Apparently, I have a dog that thinks he's an alpha and he taught me how to address this. I need more classes to address my dogs leash pulling and more, and I am glad that John didn't try to address all issues in one session because I don't think that would have been very helpful in the long run. Training a dog is not done in an hour, it takes more time than that. I highly recommend John.

Valerie came to my home. She made the xtra effort of bringing a few of her dogs also to interact with my dog. She stayed well beyond the hour she was there for. She is so knowledgable and really helped me understand my dog and his behaviors. Amazing!!!! Have signed on for more sessions and would highly recommend Valerie to anyone seeking help with the training of their dog.

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!!

Our Golden Retriever puppy was very hard to control. He was constantly chewing on everything including our hands and feet. We needed help so we hired Happy Dog Training. Ralf has been working with our dog Teddy for 6 weeks and he is now well behaved and totally manageable. Ralf is a very knowledgable in the area of canine behavior and his knowledge has resulted in excellent results I highly recommend Ralf and his staff.

I have an English mastiff whom I was reading wrong. So I ran into a girl who knew Paula and swore that she is the best with dogs and she also said Paula brought down the euthanize rate at the local shelters. I was skeptical because I have never had a dog trainer come to work with my dogs. My mastiff was a little different from my other dogs so I was in need of someone who knew what they were doing. When Paula came to meet djanga, the dog was doing her normal barking and showed some of her nervousness. Paula just came to just be around her pursay, and it was just so djanga could see that she's not a threat or anyone to be worried about. Paula has the most open personality and it's like these dogs just feel that vibe and soak it up. Djanga doesn't feel comfortable around most adults but she loved Paula from day two haha. I know that Paula can solve all dogs issues if not strive to give her all trying to. She would come in and we would take djanga out come back in let her chew on an antler to release her tension then go back out. It worked, I thought my dog was a goner. Djanga was getting so much better and Paula would bring different things to introduce her too, ( including her daughter). I bought a super nice leash off of her that djanga worked really well with and a few antlers. Djanga got to where she was looking for her weekly tennis ball in Paula's bag and was super happy to see her. That's not the only good thing though she is very adamant about working the dog and getting them to where they need to be to feel comfortable in their environments and just calm no stress. She did that for djanga and I'm so thankful for that. Djanga today is a better dog then she's ever been I still use her tools to this day and it has made the world so much easier to handle for her. Paula is a great person and the dogs love her but she is very patient and calm with them. Her rates are super affordable, and she will come to you where ever you are. If anyone has the chance to work with her or her work with their dog, it'll be the most wonderful experience you will ever have with a dog trainer. The only thing I would change is I would live to see Paula travel and help dogs around the world I know she could make a difference in our shelters today.

Philip and Michelle were great with our dog Pip-boy. When we contacted them Pip was aggressive and nervous, with little confidence. He had attacked our smaller dog a few times and was an all around bully to her. He also had a very difficult time being left alone. Philip and Michelle helped to build up his confidence and in turn helped to lessen his aggressive and nervous behaviors. Their dog Loki also helped socialize Pip and was impressively well trained. Pip now gets along with our smaller dog, Tootsie, and is more at ease when we leave him alone. In the six weeks that we've worked with them I can see that our Pip is a different dog. He's happier, more relaxed, and more at ease. Philip and Michelle we're always accommodating and welcomed any and all questions we had through the training process. We would highly recommend K.O. Dog training!

I bought a dog (german shepherd puppy) from Kris a couple years ago for sport work. He set me up with training and my dog is THE best trained dog I have ever owned. She has a balanced and stable temperament on top of fantastic obedience and protection. I am so incredibly happy with her and Kris is extremely knowledgeable in dog behavior and dog training of all aspects. I recommend Taylor made Working Dogs for any source of dog training or buying.

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.

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.

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!

I had used a trainer with limited success and was frustrated by the experience. I was referred to Bark to Basics by a colleague who experienced great results by working with Melissa at Bark to Basics. We had the same great outcome. She worked with us to help us better understand our dogs responses to us. We tried Bark to Basics rewards based approach and it worked. We learned so much about dog behavior and responses from Melissa. We as pet parents, required more training than our dog! Melissa also is a pet sitter which helped reinforce our training while we were away.

Connie has become a part of your family. She is wonderful person inside and out and an amazing trainer. Our little Pom went from wild and undisciplined to a well behaved little pup. Her methods are unmatched. Connie has also helped us potty train him in our new home as well. We are so happy with our training and our doggy is now so well behaved. If you’re looking for a reliable trainer who delivers results and at a great price then you’ve found he right person.

Our dog, Coconut, received puppy training through Laguna Niguel City classes taught by Wendy, about two years ago. Ever since then, we have used Wendy's help for training, dog walking, as well as pet boarding services. There are a few major points to mention about Doggie Do Pet Services / Wendy Brookhyser: 1. She is very reliable, responsible, and caring. 2. Our dog, Coconut, absolutely loves and adores her. 3. Wendy is one of the best trainers we have seen. To our eyes, she is an expert in dog training and dog behavior. In addition to puppy training, Wendy helped us with Canine Good Citizen training, and Coconut passed the test with flying colors one year ago. 4. Last, but not least, when Coconut returns from pet boarding with Wendy, he has played so much that he sleeps for a day or two!!!

After doing hours of research and training on my own with my young dog, I was at my wits end with everything from potty training, to walking nicely. After speaking with Holly from Furry Tail Dog Training, we identified all of my concerns, and she gave me a clear and easy plan to help me guide my wild puppy to becoming a lovable, and manageable dog! We are so grateful for her help, because I am now taking my dog on walks with a lose lead when once I didn't think it was possible! And potty training woes are a thing of the distant past!

Bo went in pulling on the leash and crazy excited when he saw another dog. One hour later he walked out calmly and was completely unphased by other dogs he saw. I've got to keep it up, but Paul got me and Bo back on track!

Nancy is the best pet sitter we've ever had. My dog is more excited to see her walk through the door than me! She is reliable, trustworthy, and caring. I know that when we are gone our dog is with the best care and that makes vacations that much more enjoyable. She took care of my aging dog who needed extra care when she was older and now is sitting for my 10 month old pup. I highly recommend her.

We had a 17 month puppy that was out of control. Well in fact he was in control of our family. The last straw was me tackling him in the front yard to keep him from running out of the house again. We hired Peter Levy to help us with this adorable wonderful stubborn puppy. Within minutes of Peter walking into the house, he looked at our puppy and gave him some type of signal or vibe that he was alpha. From that point on, our puppy changed. He became calmer and more attentive. Peter taught us how to gain control over our puppy and get him to behave better. We learned from him how to be above the puppy in the pecking order. His instructions were very insightful and made so much sense when you realize how pack animals work. He has an instant connection with a dog, and is able to help us get the good behaviors that we need from our dog. We highly recommend Peter as a dog trainer. He is amazing!!!
