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!
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 is awesome!! She truly is a dog lover and committed to her work. I needed help training my rescue dog to become a service dog and she did a wonderful job teaching us all the tips and tricks. She's very passionate about her work, which translates into great results when training your dog. She's very flexible and willing to help in any way she can. I highly recommend her. Thanks DeeCee!
General training not to be scard of people
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 had the idea on the correct way to walk your dog but never understood how. Ralf weber gave me a boost of confidence on how to handle my APBT. I look forward in the futrure training sections and would absolutely recommend Ralf to anyone who needs help!
Hi, my name is Laura. I signed up for a 'group' dog training class in the San Fernando Valley. I highly recommend Duane Overturf for your dog training needs! Duane always had a great attitude! His handling of each dog was consistent and with a gentle authority. You could tell, he knew what he was doing. It amazed me how quickly dogs responded to his commands. Duane had total control of each situation at hand. Also, behaviors such as; a barking problem, chewing problem, digging problem, etc. - Duane had training techniques that conquered each one. He made dog training look easy! I was extremely impressed with how well all the owners and dogs did at the end of the course! Now that's a G O O D D O G ! Oh, and anytime I had a question, I called Duane and he took the time, walked me through the problem step by step, making sure I understood and was confident I could handle the situation before hanging up the phone. Duane is an outstanding dog trainer!
Stefanie has trained 4 of my dogs over more than 10 years and I cannot sing her praises enough! She has true compassion for all animals and has rescued and found homes for countless number of dogs. She has a real gift of "talking" to the dogs -- she can read their personalities and they bond with her. She is experienced, professional, strict but kind and understands all breeds -- purebreds and mixed. She assesses the situation, background, needs, etc. of the owner/s as well as the dog and adjusts her training method accordingly. Above and beyond her dog training skills, Stefanie is a warm, principled, caring person. I consider her a friend as much as my dogs' trainer.
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.
Theresa and Brad are absolutely the best! In just a few sessions My dog Missy (a 9 year old pit very set in her ways) was a a completely different well trained dog! Because the training went so well, I enrolled her in Santa Monica Paws Doggy Daycare and it's amazing!! Thank you Santa Monica Paws for being amazing, trustworthy and just all around THE BEST!!
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.
Worked with my little Chihuahua Jax & after one training session I saw he was better already and getting rid of all those bad habits!
Love Ur K9 saved our relationship with our puppy. Our dog went through two trainers and destroyed an endless array of items in our house when we finally found Kevin and Love Ur K9. After training with Kevin, our dog is like a whole new pet - still playful and lovely, but obedient and a joy to have in the house.
Vince is very knowledgeable! I look forward to working with him training Triten!
The training was amazing and better than we could have hoped. She did more for our dog than we or any other trainer has done before. She set us on the best path to help our dog become confident and not so nervous and scared. We’ve already seen improvements and look forward to seeing her get more comfortable with strangers and being outdoors. We plan on working with her more in the future. I would highly recommend her!!!
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.
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!
Daniele is an instinctual, thorough, heart centered, Cat & Dog Behaviorist / Whisperer. She has incredible knowledge about animals, she is literally a walking encyclopedia on the subject. Daniele has the ability to assess & evaluate your pet accurately based on their specific personality and then put together a complete training package to resolve any challenges you may be facing. Her process is quick, fun and very clear. She and her team are a complete one stop shop for pets. Anything you might need from nutritionalists, cage free doggie daycare, pet jewelry designers, homeopathic medicines and formulas, water therapists and even a pet massage therapist to mention a few. She is dedicated to not only your results but also to helping you get a deeper understanding of your pet so you'll be able to communicate to them more thoroughly with ease. I would highly recommend her with confidence to anyone who needs help with their pet... especially if it's a rescue pet she's AWESOME!
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!
All aspects of Paw by Paw is amazing. Ayeumi is so kind, patient and understanding of the dogs that she is training. She got our dog as a baby and then he went back 8 months later and a 100 lbs heavier. Her training of both the dog and owner is superb as well as her assistance when needed. I would recommend her absolutely and proudly.
