I am a holistically minded canine behavioral expert specializing in training therapy dogs and all matters of basic dog obedience. I have reasonable rates, and I get results! I also work with rescue groups, They give me the dogs no one wants anymore and I have much success in rehabilitating them.I have a gift of understanding dogs. It is my purpose in living to help the fractured relationship that we currently have with our animals. I don't just address the symptoms; I get to the root of the problem, which is where true healing begins.

We started with our puppy at 6 months and finished about 8 weeks later. Our goal was to have our Flat Coat Retriever behave on the street, in the park, on-leash, and especially off-leash. He is now almost 8 months old and weighs almost 80 lbs. Duane's method suited us perfectly and not only is the dog trained - so are we. We learned a tremendous amount about canine communication and can take him anywhere in full confidence that he will be well behaved. We wholeheartedly endorse Duane and his training - knowledgeable, patient, personable and always professional. Erik and Kate in Venice

Cassidy was great! I hired her because she really followed up & was interested in helping me. And she did. We had session at a local dog park with my recent rescue dog that is aggressive towards other dogs. Extremely aggressive. After 1 1/2 hours, the dog was showing no signs of aggression towards a dog that it was barking/pulling/going crazy with. She videotaped the session as well. Cassidy is a tough love kind of a trainer, just what my dog needs. Thank you!

Sally is Literally an Angel that I manifested into our lives! My Frankers & I are over the moon with the service, attention to care instructions, Love & innate connection Sally obviously has with our canine pals. I was overjoyed to not only get a thorough report of Frankie & Sally's first "hang out" together (which she does for all initial meet & greets & it's an Awesome idea and report to get) but to also received some of the CUTEST pictures of Frankie that I've ever seen! (I'm actually a bit jealous that Frankie took cuter pics with Sally than she ever has with me, LoL). But seriously, they were Too Adorable! I am Not an easy sell on good customer service. But for some reason I was drawn to Sally when she responded to my thumbtack post and my intuition guided me to a GOD send! Once we spoke I knew she was someone special, and now, having experienced how she takes care of my babes and is so responsive, kind and a joy to talk to, I'm SOLD that Sally is THE woman to contact for your pet care needs. The only thing that would make me hesitate to leave Sally a Bomb review, is a selfishness to have her all to us, lol. Good thing I'm (we're) not that selfish ;) Contact Sally TODAY! You Won't regret it and in the 2 years I've been in LA with Frankie, this is the First time I've actually felt that I have found someone I don't have to worry about. To be relieved of the stress I used to feel when I had to work or needed assistance for my Franks is invaluable. THANK YOU SO MUCH SALLY FOR BEING YOU!!!!!!!

I train, rehabilitate and care for canine children. I educate, coach and support canine parents. I specialize in training, behavioral issues, exercise, recreation, hikes, socialization and house-sitting. Not only am I a dog trainer, but I also use dog psychology, which I learned by training with Cesar Milan. Not all dog trainers understand Cesar's way. I use the best of both methods! I also assist at the clinics at the Dog Psychology Center in Santa Clarita starting in April. I train and care for all breeds and personalities. Not all dog trainers can say that they can work with all breeds and personalities. Please note that I am just getting started on this site in greater LA. Just take a look at my website, online, or ask me for testimonials. I am new to the area but not new to dog training.

Heather is an awesome trainer. We have 1 1/2 yr old pit bull whom we got from the shelter. He was a sweet dog but lack of discipline. Heather taught us to be a better leader for Rocky and now he more tamed. With her expertise in training dogs. I highly recommend her.
