Raquel was a wonderful revelation for myself, my husband and our two big crazy pups (130 llbs. combined). We had worked with a number of different trainers on walking and not getting too distracted by...well, you know...every little distraction on the street---feral cats, dogs rushing their front fences, squirrels, etc. They'd dragged us both around on many occasions, but mostly me. Raquel's approach was completely different than all the previous trainers and really focused on us becoming the alphas, so the dogs didn't have to. Working with our energy and coaching us while walking in those danger zones. Its has been an amazing experience. We struggled in the beginning and she offered a session to help us get over the hump (help my husband and I help the dogs!). Godfrey and Hazel are doing so much better, and we will keep in tune with Raquel's training as it has worked so well for us. Thank you Raquel :-)

Karen is amazing - she is attentive, informative, and very considerate of the concerns I have as a pet owner. She introduced training tactics to me that will help me establish a respectful relationship with my dog. It's training that is beneficial for both me and my dog. I can't wait to continue the working relationship with her and Abby!

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!

Denise was great with my German Shepard name Misty. When I started with her Misty was jumping and pulling me where I could not control her. After two months I was able to train with her in 4 Paws for Patriots. She is now a certified service dog. We would not have been able to complete that task without her training. Vance Myers

I wanted to let you know how valuable the beginners obedience training was for my Airedale, Toby, and me. Tobey is 15 months old and before I brought her to you, she was out of control. I’m not sure I was ready to admit that when we started but I soon realized it was true. After just one week the difference in her was remarkable. After six weeks, she was like a new dog. She can now be controlled and no longer has the bad habits I thought were just "being a puppy". I have learned what you already know, that it is easier to train Tobey than it is to train me! Thanks again for a wonderful experience and if you ever need a reference, please don’t hesitate to call me.

Angela is training my little 14 week old Havanese. Toy breeds are always a challenge and she's done a great job so far. She's patient, knowledgeable and works with me with home work assignments in order to build on the lessons my pooch and I are learning. I would recommend Angela to any new dog owner.

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.

This review is long overdue. We worked with Dave a few months back and he is fantastic! My husband and I have a 19month old Goldendoodle who has had previous training, puppy training through Petsmart and Petco but none of it compared to the training we received from Dave. He is great at what he does and explains things in a way that make total sense, like why didn't I think of this before?! He uses positive reinforcement training, which was huge for us. Dave works with your schedule and is flexible, he emails you after every session to go over what you've learned and how to continue the training when he's not around. We see a total difference in our dog after having sessions with Dave, we are looking forward to having him back in the near future to continue our training!

Dave was such a great help to us in training our dog (or us, really)! He really took the time to explain the process and work with Sadie to overcome her fearful reaction to other dogs. She's made great progress & we look forward to more training sessions in the future. Highly recommended! Oh, and Sadie absolutely LOVES HIM.

Basic obedience training , and training my dog not to pull on the leash.. Philip and Michelle Kaough were awesome with my dog. I would highly recommend Philip and Michelle to people with new puppies. They have a true understanding of dogs and their underlying motivators. They helped my husband and I see how vital structure and consistency is for Bo's happiness and well being. I really hope in the furture that we get to continue to the next level of training class with them.

Great experience with DogWood K9!!! Ron has helped us train our German shepherd puppy so well! She walks without pulling, doesn't jump, doesn't bite, is well behaved around other dogs and can walk without a leash taking voice commands from us! Couldn't be happier!! Thank you Dogwood K9 training!!!

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!

When I adopted my dog Lucky, I knew had behavior problems. Unless Lucky knew you, he would be very aggressive, unlike his normal, sweet self. I tried asking for help from others but their advice didn't work. I accepted that Lucky may always be aggressive, which was a bummer because I enjoyed taking him to the park and to the beach, but was always worried about what mood he'd be in. I'm still shocked at M's work, in 4 lessons Lucky has done a complete 180. Before the training, he wouldn't listen to me for simple commands like sit, and would constantly pull and try to control our walks. After the first lesson, Lucky began to easily listen to my commands for "sit" and "stay". Now that training is complete, I only have to ask him once to "leave it"/"stop" when he starts to act aggressively towards others! Lucky is also able to sit/stay and down/stay for at least half a minute, and knows to wait for me to signal him to enter or leave the house. It seemed like this progress would never come or take months, but thanks to M we were able to do this in a month!

LeNai is a professional through and through and knows dogs amazingly well and can handle every size of dog. Walking, training, playing - she is a pro! But what really makes the difference for me, is that she is treating your dog like it is her own. She gives my Sasha so much love and helps her overcome her separation anxiety. She gives updates every day, and I can 100% rely on her. When I go on my trips, I have 100% peace of mind leaving my dog with LeNai.
