Majyk Paws Dog Training
To put it simply, Maj is the perfect dog trainer and I am so happy that I hired her. I recently moved to the city after living in the central valley with Eva (my dog) for about 3 years. She went from seeing maybe one other dog a week to over 10 a day and was showing some leash aggression. She's a very active dog, so I knew she needed lots of exercise, but going on walks was getting to be really stressful (I was seriously getting worried she would attack another dog). I did lots of research online and tried some of the methods I learned, but I just couldn't seem to calm her down around other dogs. That's when I decided to contact Maj. We started our lesson by walking around the block, intentionally walking close to other dogs so Maj could see how Eva reacted. One thing I really appreciated was that she pointed out lots of subtle signs that I had never noticed before that hinted that Eva was about to freak about: tail slowly raising, accelerating to walk a little farther ahead of me, ignoring the leash a little more. After pointing these all out to me, we went over some techniques to get Eva to pay attention to me even when other dogs were around. Honestly, after just that 15 minute walk and those techniques I was already feeling optimistic. We then went into the basement of my apartment building (quietest place in the building) and went over some obedience training ("look", "yes") that I could use while on the walk to get Eva to quickly break her focus from other dogs and look at me. During this period, I really appreciated how descriptive Maj was when explaining exactly why Eva was showing certain behaviors. Everything just made so much sense. Ultimately, I can't recommend Maj enough. Over the course of just an hour and half I went from being scared to leave my building with Eva, to looking forward to spending time together again with my dog. I walked her tonight and I already see improvement!

Emily is one of the most passionate and knowledgeable dog trainers I have ever met. I contracted her when I adopted a rescue with severe separation anxiety and who never had any formal training. Within 6 weeks my pup mastered basic commands, and we were well on our way to overcoming his separation anxiety. I would recommend Emily without hesitation to anyone looking for expert help!

Pete's Dog Behavior Training
Pete has a very calm and good manner with the dogs and so much useful instructions for training, which help manage the behaviors. We really like his kind, but stern approach with repetition vs. other trainers who are very aggressive physically and verbally with the dogs. Pete't training style fits well with our personalities as dog parents. We will start putting into practice what we've learned and plan to use Pete's services again for additional training advice.

Les has been great in working with my 85 yr old mom and her newly adopted shelter dog, Milo. Milo is an affectionate sweetheart, but becomes aggressive towards other dogs when out on walks. We were concerned that he may not be a good fit for my mom. Les is taking the time to work with my mom and Milo on basic commands, in order to help my mom establish the role of leader, as well as the aggression issue. She has gained more confidence in handling Milo, and does not want to give up on her little buddy! Les is very calm, and a delight to work with (Milo thinks so too). He is also very reasonably priced. Thanks Les!
