Raquel was amazing! I have to say that my boyfriend and I were skeptical when we saw that all of her reviews had five stars (I mean how is that a thing), but we are confident saying that the stars are well earned. It is amazing how quickly our puppy has changed, and how easily Raquel taught us the techniques. We had been to other dog trainers before, but Raquel has easily surpassed them. Now we just love taking our puppy for walks and showing off her good behavior. The price did seem a little steep, but in the long term it is much less expensive than other trainers. Raquel doesn't waste any time. She started training from the moment she walked in the door. Not to mention she's very easy to get along with in general. So, if you are having some man's best friend difficulties, do yourself and your pup a favor and get a session with Raquel. Me, Joel, Lola and her new best friend James all thank her!

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.

Paula is an amazing dog trainer! She has provided me with so much new and relevant information that has been crucial in helping me with my foster dog. Thanks to her tips and her information on dog behavior, I have had great success with my dog's crate training and her behavior towards guests at the door. I highly recommend Paula to anyone who is in need to of help. She is more than a "teach them to sit" type of trainer -- she understands dog behavior and carefully explains how humans can work with dogs to give them skills to succeed.

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!

A patient, experienced trainer who makes you feel success with your dog training is indeed possible! Daniel senses the correct way to deal with your dog's needs and is very successful in his approach to training and is very reasonably priced. He's got my vote!

Steve is an incredible, elite master trainer. He holds the key to unlocking all of your dogs' best attributes. He has done wonders for my dogs, and I have witnessed him doing even more for others. There's nothing that this man can't fix about your dog. But, you must be willing to put in the time and do what it takes to maintain. I have two mixed breeds (brother and sister) that have severe separation anxiety, when they weren't near each other. They were completely co dependent on each other, fearful and extremely sensitive to everything around them. They would whine and bark when separated. Steve had them for less than two weeks, and now they have no problem, at all being separated. He taught me how to build their confidence, and help them succeed. Which has made training them in obedience much easier. They now have the will to work, and the desire to learn more. As do I. He has inspired me so much that it has now become my passion, and I am now his apprentice. What I love most about the way that he trains, is that he is very gentle and patient with the dogs. He is by far more concerned with the dogs' well-being than anything else. He can be pretty tough on the owners, but once you come to realize why, you really can't be mad at him. The issues that your dog has, are typically there because of you. Your dog is a mirror of yourself. Once you've accepted that, you can then both change together, building the bond between you and your dog even stronger. But, you must be part of the change in order for it to work. Wendy is my senior master trainer, and I have learned so much already from both of them. They have taught me beginner and advanced obedience, behavior work, tracking, scent detection, how to show in AKC competitions, how to train movie dogs, and much more. Through the skills that I have acquired from them, I am now teaching my own classes and training dogs daily, using the same incredible methods that these amazing dog trainers have taught me. I highly recommend Steve and Wendy, and all of their trainers to anyone who truly cares for their dog.

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!

We are so grateful for finding Dogwood K9 Training Experience and working with Ron. Our rescue dog, Jackson, was a stray with no prior training and some behavioral issues that we couldn’t address on our own. Jackson had human aggression towards males, did not listen to commands, jumped on furniture, nipping, chasing our cats, incessant barking, anxiety, the list goes on. By working with Ron we have learned how to address all of these issues through behavior modification training. The best part of working with Ron is that he makes it fun for the dog by using games as a primary means of training. Jackson loves going to Ron’s classes and surprisingly isn’t aggressive towards him in any way, probably due to Ron’s sweet and caring nature towards dogs that Jackson can sense. Ron’s training method starts with the basics and then we build upon the foundation using baby steps so that the dog progressively works up the full commands, while truly understanding them. Our dog’s behavior has done a 180 since we started training and he shows respect for us now. This is after a different trainer told us we should probably take our dog to the shelter because he is going to be too hard train (a lost cause, as they say). Ron’s ultra-positive attitude towards Jackson helped us see that although he is not a perfect dog, he is the perfect dog for us. Ron is a truly exceptional dog trainer. Don’t expect magic; it takes hard work to counter-condition a dog with bad habits like Jackson, but Ron’s expertise will equip you with all of the tools that you need to work with your dog. What I like about the classes is that Ron is training ME to work with my dog so that I can continue to use his tactics long after our classes end. Through his guidance I am creating a long-lasting bond with my dog based on respect, but mostly based on FUN! We love Dogwood!

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.

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.

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!
