Raquel is absolutely amazing and words cannot adequately express how thrilled we are with her dog training services (actually she trains people to communicate with dogs). Our deaf and partially- sighted Great Dane had some behavior issues. It's hard to manage any 140 pound dog, much less one that is deaf and sight-impaired. Other trainers (not on Thumbtack) recommended expensive or lengthy training sessions, and even a 10 day boot camp. Raquel taught us how to understand and train our dog, and she did it in THREE HOURS! Amazing! She explained dog psychology and sociology, and taught us how to work with our big boy. She's also available for telephone follow-ups without charge. She clearly has a gift for dogs and loves what she does, and we're thrilled. If you're looking for a dog trainer, look no further - Raquel is truly wonderful.
Maggie is my fourth dog. I have had trainers with each of the dogs. Never have I had a more competent, compassionate and professional trainer as Karen. She taught Maggie to walk loose leash and not enter a room before more or my husband. I used to have to carry her everywhere. She's only 9 pounds but it got old really fast. I also had Karen board/train her for two days. She came back a different dog. When Karen came today for the beginning of training her to be a therapy dog. When Karen came for the beginning of training her to be a therapy dog, she got so excited when seeing Karen. Karen knows how to be firm yet kind with dogs. Dogs know it. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly than Karen. She is the best of the best. Barry K. Sherman Oaks
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!
His great he have so much love and care for our dog since his training my dog I can sleep every night with no worries
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.
Hi, my name is Laura. I signed up for a 'group' dog training class in the San Fernando Valley. I highly recommend Duane Overturf for your dog training needs! Duane always had a great attitude! His handling of each dog was consistent and with a gentle authority. You could tell, he knew what he was doing. It amazed me how quickly dogs responded to his commands. Duane had total control of each situation at hand. Also, behaviors such as; a barking problem, chewing problem, digging problem, etc. - Duane had training techniques that conquered each one. He made dog training look easy! I was extremely impressed with how well all the owners and dogs did at the end of the course! Now that's a G O O D D O G ! Oh, and anytime I had a question, I called Duane and he took the time, walked me through the problem step by step, making sure I understood and was confident I could handle the situation before hanging up the phone. Duane is an outstanding dog trainer!
Melissa is great! She worked with my 2 very active dogs & was very patient. Training was only one day, she managed to answer all of our questions & I already see a big difference.
They did an excellent job with our pitbull, Fiona! She was only 5 months old and very shy and timid....they worked with her and worked with her and she is now very obedient and has gained confidence. We are also getting a service dog from them for our autistic son. Two thumbs up!!
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.
She is very caring. She loves working with your pets. Our dogs responded to her great training
Love Ur K9 is the best decision I ever made for my Mini Australian Shepherd, Camo. I cannot say enough how good they have been to me, and my dog. I am forever grateful for everything they have done for us. Here's the full story: I heard about Kevin through a friend who had a great experience after her dog was trained by Kevin. I was looking for a dog trainer who could not only help with obedience training my three month old puppy, but also work on some dominance behavior issues. I had read so many books on raising a puppy, and also grew up in a family with many dogs so I thought I knew what I was doing. Our first meeting with Kevin was in our home, where he met Camo, and got a better understanding of our home setup and routines. It is also where Camo was comfortable and displaying some early signs of dominant behavior. Kevin immediately picked up on this and made some changes to the way in which we interact with Camo. We started puppy behavior and obedience training that same week. Kevin also trained us as handlers, so that we understood the training and could repeat it at home, that way Camo would not be able to default back to bad behaviour. When Camo was 9 months old, we heard that we had to move to Australia for my husband's work. There was no way that I could make the move without Camo. Australia is extremely strict with importing pets, and theres a six month intensive preparation of vet checks, and massive costs involved before dogs are allowed to enter the country. We had to leave two months after we heard the news so we had to make a plan for Camo in the meant time. Kevin took Camo into his home for four months, looking after him, doing service dog training with him, and helping with many arrangements to get Camo reunited with us. Camo joined us in Australia in June and I am elated to have my best friend back by my side once again. He is still full of personality, but by far the most obedient, trained and socialised dog in Melbourne!!! THANK YOU Love Ur K9, from the bottom of our hearts!!!
These guys are amazing! I have 2 rescue dogs, they are brother and sister and have a very strong bond between the 2 of them. Which made it very difficult for us humans to bond individually with each of them. They were both very dependent on each other, and had pretty severe fear issues with just about everything. People, other dogs, loud noises, kids, and random large objects would send them into a fear frenzy causing them to lash out and protect each other. After a week at the facility, their behavior changed dramatically! They are now no longer dependent on each other, allowing me the opportunity to bond with them individually and build a strong trusting relationship with each of them. They are now looking to me for guidance and protection. They are no longer fearful of the world around them. This brings me great joy! I appreciate everything that the trainers at Doggie Do have done for us. With the DVDs and constant guidance every step of the way, I have watched my babies blossom. I myself have learned so much from this experience, and now feel confident in myself and with my dogs. I can't thank them enough. I highly recommend this training facility to anyone with a dog, no matter what your needs are, they will fix it.
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!
I am so happy to have found Daniele and Beijo's Corner. I had just got out of a relationship and I felt like I wanted to adopt a pet to keep my mind off things. Daniele helped me to adopt my tuxedo cat Midnight. Daniele said that cats fit my personality, and all this time I thought I was a dog person! Midnight though very loving was also very timid. He would cry when I left the house for work and it would disturb the neighbors. He would also run and hide under the bed when I had company over. I went to the Beijo's Corner website and I saw the packages that Daniele offered for the pet behavioral service. Daniele came to my rescue! She has been working with Midnight on the anxiety and socialization packages. I also had homework of my own to do. This was an amazing learning experience. I now know that it eases Midnights anxiety if I play soft jazz before I leave to work. And that is just one of the many tips and tricks I have learned during this journey. I do not know what I would have done with out the help of Daniele and Beijo's Corner. And I am exciting for what's to come!
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.
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!
I cannot say enough good things about Off Leash K9 Los Angeles. From the start they were friendly, courteous, kind and prompt. Off Leash isn't the cheapest, but we think there is great value in the type of service they provided us. Mike outlined exactly what would happen before we signed up, and that reassured us. Then Mike and his team delivered on exactly what they said they would. Our dog left us for two weeks knowing how to sit and shake. He came back AMAZING!!! Our boy walks off leash, comes when called, and is so much happier after the training. Off Leash K9 Los Angeles gave us the dog that we always envisioned. We cannot thank Mike and his team enough!!
