Raquel is an EXCELLENT trainer. She came to my house, provided my family and I tools and tips on how to properly train our husky, and immediately modified our pup's behavior while she was there. She was professional, courteous, warm and incredibly knowledgeable. She knew exactly what needed to be done and she executed it flawlessly. I would highly recommend Raquel to any of my friends and to anyone who are seriously considering training their dog.

After only a couple of sessions with Karen, we were able to see a marked difference in our dog Winnie's behavior. Her suggestions and training tips were " spot on " in terms of some of the behavioral issues we'd been experiencing. Her loving, yet matter~of~fact approach was just what we'd needed and our Winnie already seems to be much more well adjusted and happier. We would highly recommend Karen and her Bow Wow Method of Dog Training!

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.

Melissa is an awesome dog training. Just from one session, we saw a difference in our dog Frankie. She also has walking services that helps our Frankie with his anxiety. And not to mention more training time on the leash when she takes him out for his midday walks. She's flexible and very accommodating. I highly recommend her! Thanks Melissa!

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!

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 won't be sorry! With Gratitude, Carole and Joe Wike

I taught my pit bull mix how to sit and stay but when we would walk he would bark at all the other dogs and pull on the leash. I couldn't get him to stop and one time he almost bit the other dog. I had Amber from the Customized Dog Trainers come out for just 4 sessions and he already stopped pulling and actually even ignores the other dogs when we pass them. I live in a community with a lot of older people and they don't like pit bulls already so I am really glad that he is behaving so they don't think he is an aggressive dog. I would recommend this dog training because it works and I am so much happier now that Buddha (my pit bull) listens to me.

I met Richard Calkins through Robert Weatherwax, the owner of the famous Lassie, whom Richard worked with for many years, besides on many other Hit Movies and commercials where he trained animals to perform! That was a lucky day for me as Richard has since then trained and given me peace and so much joy for 3 generations of amazing German Shepherds in my life!!! Amazing because of his Magic Touch!!! He knows the dogs inside out and shows you what LOVE's got to do with it! It's all "positive reinforcement" training. All our dogs just love Richard, our Rocky would sit in the window waiting for an hour when I said Richard is coming! He is the best dog trainer you can ever have!!! He'll train you and your dog and prepares you for a happy future and life with your fury Pal!!! I owe everything I know today about dogs to Richard Calkins and I know a lot today! As a matter off fact my "Dantino" today, I train mostly myself with Richard doing just some touch ups and start ups! I very highly recommend Richard Calkins!!!

When we dropped our dog Biggles off with Heather at Off Leash K9 Training I truly did not know what to expect. Biggles was a good dog but had no sense of discipline, being that he is only a year old and full of energy. I had read all the amazing reviews and thought it would be worth the try.....and boy was I NOT let down!! Everyday I got update videos and messages about his progress that day and even just a nice picture to let us know he was being so loved and felt right at home. The two weeks went by so fast and when it was time to go get him, Heather worked so nicely with our crazy schedule to make sure that we had the right amount of time to feel comfortable with all of his commands before taking him back home. Upon arriving to get him Heather sat me down and explained everything to me before we got to see Biggles and made sure we knew it all. Then out came Biggles a TOTALLY different calm dog! I was STUNNED. He preformed all his commands with me as Heather watched and did them so well, and the respect he had for Heather was amazing. We are now almost a month post training and we can't be thankful enough for everything Heather has done to make Biggles the perfect dog!! Thank you so much Heather and Off Lease K9 Training for all u did for us and Biggles!! Andrea and Ryan Kesler

My dog is a French bulldog rescue that I got 2 weeks ago. He is a good dog that fits with our family. I was aware of his dog agression, which I had planned to get professional assistance with. However, we have gotten a bit more tha we have bargained for. His first week with us he was good. But now he chews on everything he should not and pottys in the house.......he even has a doggie door that he knows how to use. I'm looking for someone who can help me. I have committed to given my rescue a forever home, but his behaviors are surely making it difficult.
