Hey, Peter is a dog wizard. I was having trouble with my 2 year old golden doodle but after Peter did one session, my dog shaped up and has really improved. He taught me a routine withGrazie so that I am always training her for 10-15 min. a day. Easy and so rewarding!
Courtney is helping us retrain and socialize our rescued husky who is also recovering from major surgery to his rear leg. Her sensitivity to our dog's recovery and post-rescue needs was most important to us. Our basic goal is keeping him calm when coming across cats, squirrels, strollers, bikes and children so that he is not reinjured. We are working toward a long-term goal of field training and responsiveness to hand and voice commands so we can take him places where he is allowed off leash. Courtney is easy to get along with, understands our goals, understands our dog and knows how to work with all of us. We feel that Devoted Dog Training has been a tremendous success story for us after just three half-hour sessions plus our initial interview which really helped us make the right choice!
Our first training session was Wonderful! Logan was professional, informative and extremely compassionate, calm and helpful. After listening to our "story," issues and concerns about our dog's behavior, and then observing us together, he provided easy and clear instructions on how to make life more enjoyable for us And our pet. We cannot wait for the next session!
Executive Canine Services has been a real find for our family and our German Shepard. I have often felt reluctant to have typical "dog walkers" take Apollo out. When I heard about Executive Canine's Training Walks, I thought that's what we needed. Apollo is enjoying play time away from home but getting additional obedience during these activities. Our family has notices a big improvement in temperament and overall behavior.
He came to Napa and did a combined dog training lesson with my sister and I. He was very good with the dogs and got her crazy 6 month old puppy to learn to lay down within minute. I will be recommending him to anyone looking for a dog trainer.
Really helpful with training our new puppy
Kevin has been great with our (7-month-old) pup, Dot! We regularly get pictures and videos of her having fun with the other dogs in the group, and come home to her tired :) Kevin also leaves us report cards and works with us to reinforce the behaviors we're training ourselves. Would definitely recommend working with Kevin!
JaxWilde helped us greatly with Buddy. Taught us a lot about handleing and training. Buddy adapted well with the comands she provided us with in training. We would recommend her for your trainings needs.
Maj is amazing! In a short time, we have been able to see huge improvements with our pup! Maj is ALWAYS on time, receptive to feedback, clear and direct with training. We are very happy with her services!!!!
Didi listens attentively to our concerns about our dog's behavior. She teaches in a constructive, easily understood manor by both our dog and us. You can see Didi's genuine interest in helping our dog learn correct behavior and us learning how to guide her. We have had our consultation and one training session so far, We feel confident that we chose the best Trainer/Behaviorist to help us achieve the results we want.
I can’t recommend Emily enough. We rescued our three-year-old dog Kiki around eight months ago from what we can only imagine was an absolutely horrific situation. Needless to say Kiki had a number of different things that she was uncomfortable with. Emily was not only incredibly empathetic, but from day one showed Kiki unconditional love and support. Over a number of months, she worked with us and Kiki at a pace that Kiki was comfortable with in order to help her overcome her fears, and learn to trust people. She was not only incredible with Kiki, but incredible with us, she’s an incredible teacher and gave us all the tools that we needed to be successful in training Kiki in between our sessions. Throughout this process and as we have gone to find dog walkers, vets, or any person that will interact with Kiki we always say we hope they’re like Emily. She is truly someone that understands dogs and what they need, as well people to work with them in order to help them train their dogs. Thank you so much for all that you do, Emily!
Emily is fantastic! She began working with our 6 month old weim only 4 weeks ago, and he is already a different dog. He has learned to be better on the leash, developing better response to commands such as sit and stay. Emily truly listens to the needs of the family and is very responsive to the individual dog needs. She is dependable, responsible and when you meet her, you can just feel her passion and dedication to puppy training. She sent us regular daily updates about our puppy's progress, including video clips. When we first started, our puppy was shy of other dogs, but after only 2 weeks, he was braver and more assertive in the dog park with other pets. Emily is a pleasure to work with and we have just signed up for another 4 weeks of training to continue building on the progress our doggies has made. She is down to earth and caring. She is also not afraid to say when something isn't working, which we truly appreciated. Our dog didn't like the halti leash, so after a couple of weeks of training, Emily came up with a different leash option and was very honest about the reasons for the change. It's refreshing to work with such a professional. Thank you, Emily, for all your dedication and hard work!
Kelly is knowledgeable and willing to help with dogs specific training issues.
She is very knowledgeable. We saw our dog improve within one training.
Lisa is knowledgeable and very helpful. She taught me a lot about what's going on with my dog and how to mondify her behavior. I'm still working on it, but my dog is making improvement. I highly recommend Lisa as a valuable resource for any training or behavior issues you are having with your dog.
Sylvette is part of the family already! Flexible with times, sweet, funny and she loves our Chappie as much as he loves her. Her walks are always varied and interesting and our dog gets great exercise working off his 1 1/2 yr old pent-up energy. When she first got Chappie, he was a shy young man, not at ease with other dogs. Now, thanks to her loving encouragement he's opened right up and now has made lots of other two-legged and four-legged friends. He runs to her when she gets here to pick him up and returns to us as happy as ever. She gives him love as if he were her own, keeps up our training/discipline regimen and only gives him delicious healthy treats and food. She's even watched him for a week while we were out of town. We've been through larger dog walking services and we will never go back. Longue Vie Sylvette!
Stoakly, had issues with leash pulling, attentiveness and general obedience. After working with Keynoe with his 3 week transformative program, Stoakly is a completely different dog! Listens to basic commands when we walk and is so much calmer. We even had the opportunity to hang out with other dogs at the local park - the dogs got along so well and Keynoe managed all their behaviors at once. I was really impressed by how easy Keynoe is to work with, his professionalism and flexibility when working with me and Stoakly 1:1. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for help with training and even if you just want a fun and reliable friend for your dog.
It has been excellent to have Caitlin take care of our dog. She has been extremely flexible to accommodate a lot of our last minute requests and my dog loves to visit her and her dogs :).
Laika was so great with my French Beagle! After the third time Henri peed on the couch I knew it was time to seek professional help and Laika fit the bill. I was worried about entrusting my puppy's well-being with a stranger but Laika was so professional and friendly and Henri looks forward to her visits every week now.
