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!!

Karen is very knowledgeable and very passionate about what she does. I have done some research on dog training, and I very much agree with her methodology of relating to the dogs on a pack level. Karen did a fantastic job of conveying this information to us and really breaking out what key actions would show the dogs that we are the pack leader. I know that we have to right tools now to help make our puppers less stressed and lead happy and healthy lives.

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.

I am currently working on service dog training with Denise. She is AMAZING!! My SD I'm training is also the first dog I've ever owned. That being said, Denise is really patient with me as I learn how to be a good dog owner as well as train my dog. She is very go with the flow with the training, as far as if I have anything come up in between classes, we address the problem and work through it right away. I'm so happy she's a part of our lives! Best most professional service I've recieved.

Duane helped teach us how to work with our Shepard mix. Our beautiful pet was crazy hyper and didn't want to listen. With Duane's guidance, she now listens and is the best dog. I highly recommend Duane for dog training.

We have an 8 month old lab that we were having trouble with her jumping on people and nipping all the time. After the first day of training we saw a great improvement. She also walks very nicely on a leash now and doesn't tug anymore. I would highly recommend Ruff Pup Dog Training!

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,

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 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!!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
