Raquel is absolutely amazing! I have two 1-year old female pitbull/labrador mixes that desperately needed training. They knew basic commands such as sit, lie down and shake. However, they never had proper training before. There was constant unruly behavior - jumping on guests and leash pulling among others. Less than an hour into our session, my dogs were listening and staying put - something I could never get them to do. I've had other trainers come by who would sit and go through the animal behavior stuff and as soon as their time was up, they were gone without going through any exercise training. Raquel put in the time and was willing to stay until they got through exercises. I can't thank her enough. My dogs are much more calm now and I was able to bring them to a friend's house without worrying if they'd get into it with the other dogs or people. She's well worth the money!

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

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.

Earl and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how pleased we are with Shawdow’s training to date. We were both amazed at how fast we got the results we were hoping for. We are slower at learning than he is. We also appreciate your nutrition advice. Shadow has put on weight and his coat is looking better than since we first got 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.

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.

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!!!

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!

Our dog, Coconut, received puppy training through Laguna Niguel City classes taught by Wendy, about two years ago. Ever since then, we have used Wendy's help for training, dog walking, as well as pet boarding services. There are a few major points to mention about Doggie Do Pet Services / Wendy Brookhyser: 1. She is very reliable, responsible, and caring. 2. Our dog, Coconut, absolutely loves and adores her. 3. Wendy is one of the best trainers we have seen. To our eyes, she is an expert in dog training and dog behavior. In addition to puppy training, Wendy helped us with Canine Good Citizen training, and Coconut passed the test with flying colors one year ago. 4. Last, but not least, when Coconut returns from pet boarding with Wendy, he has played so much that he sleeps for a day or two!!!

After working with David during the last couple of months, it's clear that he understands solution based approaches. Means different methods and solutions to each situation. Impressive training ability! David is very knowledgeable & his professional conduct gives way to his even friendlier demeanor. I can call him in between training sessions with any questions and he gives great care and concern to each call.

I had used a trainer with limited success and was frustrated by the experience. I was referred to Bark to Basics by a colleague who experienced great results by working with Melissa at Bark to Basics. We had the same great outcome. She worked with us to help us better understand our dogs responses to us. We tried Bark to Basics rewards based approach and it worked. We learned so much about dog behavior and responses from Melissa. We as pet parents, required more training than our dog! Melissa also is a pet sitter which helped reinforce our training while we were away.

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!

Daily dog care and training for multiple dogs. Total reliability is important to me because I work far from home. Loving the dogs is important, too.

Paul at K9city was amazing. Very honest, professional and caring. He has helped us so much with our dogs behavior problems. Still a work in progress but Paul continues to check in with us, gives us feedback and suggestions and supports us in any way he can. Paul and K9city have been a lifesaver for our family and our dog, we can not thank him enough!!

I tried using a treat trainer but our dog still did not listen. Mike and Off Leash K9 Training Los Angeles were able to get the control over our dog that we wanted. The Off Leash team were there every step of the way and now we have a dog that listens each and every time.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
