To say that my husky/shepherd puppy had become a problem around my place would be an understatement. It had reached the point where I could barely study in my own place and I'd rarely have guests. Nonstop barking and biting had been the biggest issues, along with the damage he had done to my chairs, doors, and walls. Initially, I expected a long term plan that I would have to employ to shift my puppy's behavior using techniques Raquel was going to provide. To my surprise the major change occurred in a matter of hours. My puppy was basically a new dog by the end of the session and that I owe entirely to Raquel. While I still have to enforce the rules of the house, I now have an amazingly obedient puppy and would love to recommend Happy Paws Dog Training to anyone struggling with their dog's behavior.

I hired Karen to help us with my newly rescued cockapoo that had a serious issue with aggressive behavior and biting. The first session with Karen was in my home for three hours. In that time Karen explained her background, philosophy, and approach to dog training, where I am the pack leader, not my dog.. The information she gave us was invaluable, and we worked with Jax, using everything Karen advised us to do. When we had our next session, Karen first sat with us to hear how things were going, and I was so excited to tell her of Jax's progress! I would definitely recommend Karen of Bow Wow Method to help you train your dog. She is friendly, professional, experienced, and reasonably priced. 👍🏼😊

Somehow reading a book with common-sense dog training tips did not give us confidence. Dee Cee shows you these methods & how they work--but it is up to you to do it over and over till you and your dog get it. Our dog did not have hard issues so were were looking for guidance more than a trainer that would come multiple times. Dee Cee showed us insider tips and all the details..demonstrating with our dog... to give us methods & confidence. She left 2 tools to use as we will continue to work with our dog. We wanted an hour private session in our home to target 3 simple issues and Dee Cee was just what we needed.

My family and I had our very first session with Timothy today which was free of charge. He came on time, prepared and really took the time to listen to myself and my children's concerns about the training of our dog Peanut. From the time Timothy walked through the door, he had already begun to work with Peanut through use of non-verbal but firm gestures all while listening to us, providing feedback and observing Peanut and our interactions with Peanut. He worked with Peanut inside the home and outside in our yard. Timothy was very patient with all of us and took the time to explain and demonstrate commands for Peanut. Additionally, we all felt very at ease with him the moment he walked into our home. Although Peanut was barking and jumping on Timothy when he walked through the door, in a matter of minutes without Timothy ever saying a word, Peanut was sitting quietly at his feet. Timothy also provides detailed notes and recommendations of the session because he provides so much valuable information and wants to ensure success. I signed up for an 8 session package with confidence because he taught my family and Peanut so much within the hour he spent with us. I would highly recommend Timothy to anyone I know because he is excellent at what he does.

Steve Welch of K9 Dog Training came to visit us and spent a great deal of time detailing his program and how it works. Steve and his associate, Wendy, were friendly, kind and considerate. As a result we let Babe, are Boston Terrier, and deeply loved little girl go with them to Training. We know she is happy and safe and in caring hands. I feel certain she'll return with some good lessons learned.

Angela came to the house to help us with our new puppy training! From the minute she came in, we knew she was the perfect trainer! Our dog responded so well to her. Every single time she comes to the house, she is punctual, professional, super friendly, and great at what she does! You will not be disappointed. She is a dog whisperer!

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.

We are very excited to get going on training our dog with Dave. He came to our house on Saturday, and spent over an hour discussing our dogs needs, and Dave's philosophy on training. (Free consultation) We were very impressed, and feel that he will be a great fit for our family.

KO Dog Training has provided my wife and me with the ability to walk our dog in a controlled and predictable manner. Since our dog is an American Pit Bull Terrier, she is [was] prone to pull on the leash with immense force (like a team of horses), which on some occasions had caused my wife to fall and sustain injury. Moreover, our dog now responds to commands (as training is still in the initial phase) like "come", "sit", "focus", "stop", and "down" (as in lay down). The rate at which our dog is learning, she should be able to do our income taxes before April 15.

Maureen was very responsive to texts/calls/emails. She made sure to address the individual needs of my family/pet. She packed in so much information into just one session and provided us with some unexpected extras. We have already seen an improvement in our puppy's behavior after one session. I love her positive approach to modifying behavior. She was also super patient with us (first time dog parents). We had some very basic questions but she spent extra time with us to make sure we were set before she left. Will definitely use her again and refer friends in need of doggy help.

So I live in Alabama and have a friend in Tn. that had bought a dog from Vince. The dog was one of the best working dogs I have seen. The dog was the perfect balance of work and home. I reached out to Vince with some questions about a dog I had just bought. Being that I don't have the time to take off of work and fly out to California with my dog and train with him, Vince never once hesitated to answer my questions. I kept him up to date on my training and I hit a wall, I had a few problems I couldn't seem to work out. Vince offered very precise training advise and even went so far as to ask me for a few videos and then sent me some videos of the training I could use to show me exactly what I could do to accomplish my goals. Nobody else would have done that, nobody else would have cared. Vince truly cares about dogs and wants to make sure that you and your dog have the best relationship and quality of life possible. I am actively trying to find a way to get me and my dog to him so I can train with him and thank him in person for all that he has done for me. It's never hard to discern when someone is doing it because they love what they do or if they are doing it because they love them money it brings. I can assure you Vince is in it because he loves dogs and he loves what he does. Truly one of the best people I have met in the dog training industry. Thanks again Vince for everything you have done for a know nothing beginner like me.

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!

Tommy Stark is by far the best dog trainer I have ever known. He's extremely knowledgeable and always helpful. I have a large male Rottweiler who is an absolute joy to have in every and all situations due to Tommy's training. Anytime I've ever had a question about our dog Tommy is always there to help. I highly recommend Tommy Stark. He is the best of the best! Just ask Gronk.

Amazing! David was amazing with my dog. I had a dog who had several issues on top of not having any obedience. We tried other trainers before him and they couldn't help him. We finally found David and he did a wonderful job. He got our dog to stop lunging, barking, tearing up our things, helped us build a bond, and taught him obedience commands. I am very grateful for everything he's done.

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.
