My 2 lovable but unmanageable dogs were driving me crazy. I realized that they were causing me a lot of stress. I was yelling at them all the time to stop barking and to stop jumping on people. They wouldn't come to me or listen to me. I have had dogs my whole adult life and have been able to train them with basic obedience training....but not these two! My neighbor texted me all the time about their barking. Because I had a bad fall a few years ago while walking them. On walks I have had a hard time controlling the aggression of my male dog toward other dogs, As a result, I rarely walked them. I was at the end of my rope! I started searching for dog trainers in my area and found several good choices on Thumbtack. After reading the reviews I was most impressed with with what I read about Happy Paws Dog Training. The reviews almost sounded too good to be true. Most said that their dogs were transformed in one session. After speaking with Raquel I was convinced that she was the trainer I needed. I Iiked the idea of basically one intense training session. My training session was a week and a half ago. Today, thanks to Raquel, I can walk my dogs on a leash without them pulling, I am able to stop their barking, which has become almost non-existent. They listen to me now and I have great tools and techniques to use to control a variety of their bad behaviors. Raquel teaches you about the way dogs think and to understand their body language so you can stop unwanted behavior before it starts. She also teaches you....who you have to be to command the respect from your dog. Not only have my dogs behaviors changed, but I changed as well. I leared how to interact with them and speak to them in a more powerful way. The bottom line is you have to be consistent and committed to the training. Both you and your dogs benefit. The things I learned from Raquel have made the training so much easier to mainntain. It's only a week and a half and I am amazed every day about how much my dogs have progressed. My life is much less stressful? Raquel is one of those rare indivuals who has a special gift and insight into animals. She is Magical! I would highly recommend her and have already told all my friends with dogs about how fantastic she is. The proof is in the transformation of my formerly unruly dogs! I am so grateful to Raquel for her help and guidance. She is the best!

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!

Melissa is an awesome dog training. Just from one session, we saw a difference in our dog Frankie. She also has walking services that helps our Frankie with his anxiety. And not to mention more training time on the leash when she takes him out for his midday walks. She's flexible and very accommodating. I highly recommend her! Thanks Melissa!

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.

Karen is very knowledgeable and very passionate about what she does. I have done some research on dog training, and I very much agree with her methodology of relating to the dogs on a pack level. Karen did a fantastic job of conveying this information to us and really breaking out what key actions would show the dogs that we are the pack leader. I know that we have to right tools now to help make our puppers less stressed and lead happy and healthy lives.

John is calm, confident and professional. He is amazing! Dog training is as much about training the owners as it is training the dog. He explains how dogs think and how we communicate with them. Best money I've spent in a while. I'd highly recommend this trainer!

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.

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 brought my 2 year old male pit bull to Kevin 6 months ago when my dog started experiencing some significant leash aggression towards other dogs. The problem was getting progressively worse and I couldn't walk him with other dogs present (even on the other side of the street). Kevin took him in for training and there has been a huge improvement. My dog is able to walk normally on a leash (doesn't pull like crazy like he used to). He is able to see other dogs on his walk and no longer react (huge improvement!) and he is all around a better trained dog. After the training camp, I had several sessions with Kevin (and my dog walker) and Kevin taught us all the techniques and commands he had used with my dog. Kevin is very responsive and answers all of my questions promptly. I would highly recommend him for training for any dog issues. Kevin also takes dogs in for boarding where he does a little training refresher course. My dog has gone in multiple times since his training whenever I've had to go out of town and my dog really enjoys his time there.

I would highly recommend K.O. Dog Training. The trainers, Philip and Michelle were great to work with. They were prompt to each session and made themselves available in between in case I had questions or concerns. They were very patient with me as a new puppy owner and great with my dog, Teddy. Our sessions are over and they made it clear that they are an available resource to me for the life of my dog. I am very pleased with the progress that Teddy (and I) have made.

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.

Vince, Matt and Olivia are absolutely the best! I've had other training, but Epic truly defines the art of proper dog training with amazing results. They have been training my German Shepard for a few weeks and the results have been unbelievable. Sasha absolutely loves Matt! Thank you! Roger, Tustin Ca

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.

I am currently working on service dog training with Denise. She is AMAZING!! My SD I'm training is also the first dog I've ever owned. That being said, Denise is really patient with me as I learn how to be a good dog owner as well as train my dog. She is very go with the flow with the training, as far as if I have anything come up in between classes, we address the problem and work through it right away. I'm so happy she's a part of our lives! Best most professional service I've recieved.

Ron is the best dog trainer ever! His love for dogs shows in his gentle, calm, and effective training techniques. He trains dog owners just as much as their dogs, and he has successful results. Under Ron's tutelage, my shelter pit bull blossomed from a fearful, anxiety-filled dog into a dog with confidence and self-esteem. She has really come a long way, in large part thanks to Ron and his teachings. Ron is also the least expensive dog trainer I have encountered. His rates are reasonable, for such high-quality training.

    My dog is very aggressive to strangers walking outside the fenced yard. We live on a busy street with lots of people walking by. He is also aggressive to little kids. Otherwise he is a good dog and knows all the basics and listens well. If he knows its not a stranger because we invite them into the house he is not aggressive
