Pete's training was "Training the Trainer". It was amazing! He's punctual, and very professional. The guidelines and notes that Pete provided was very helpful. He also demonstrated how to train. I agree with Pete that it is always better that the owner of the dog train so that the bonding is better. With just two hours of training, my dog has already picked up few commands. Thank you Pete!

Working with Courtney was great. She gave us a lot of tips and tricks for Motley's leash reactivity and most importantly helped us understand his frame of mind and body language. Would definitely reach out again for any dog training needs!

Executive Canine Services has been a real find for our family and our German Shepard. I have often felt reluctant to have typical "dog walkers" take Apollo out. When I heard about Executive Canine's Training Walks, I thought that's what we needed. Apollo is enjoying play time away from home but getting additional obedience during these activities. Our family has notices a big improvement in temperament and overall behavior.

He came to Napa and did a combined dog training lesson with my sister and I. He was very good with the dogs and got her crazy 6 month old puppy to learn to lay down within minute. I will be recommending him to anyone looking for a dog trainer.

Rusty at Pawgress dog training has been an absolutely amazing trainer for our reactive cattle dog/ border collie mix. He has really given us so much information and shined light on some new techniques and strategies! We have found it so useful to have our dog practice with his dogs and we love the feedback and guidance! His PDFs have helped us to be able to practice and apply at home in between trainings as well! We can’t thank Rusty enough for the work this far! We look forward to training every week as we see our dog (and us!) make strides!

We have had such a great experience with George and Notched to an OTCH with our fear reactive dog. Our pup has gone from barking and lunging at every person on walks and barking the entire time someone was in our home to happily running up to people to get treats and calming down within 5 minutes of someone entering our home. George's detailed training plan and support made working with Kole possible by alleviating many of his fears. We took Kole to Home Depot with us the other day and he calmly walked next to us while we picked flower pots for our yard and even let someone in an ice cream shop pet him on the head. We never thought this would have been remotely possible a year ago and we certainly couldn’t have come this far without George at Notched to an OTCH. Training a dog is a lot of work and nothing happens quickly, but the help and support George gave us was invaluable and we’ve made so much more progress than we ever thought possible. We really can’t thank them enough for helping us help Kole become a calm and relaxed pup who now sees people as treat-giving friends rather than something to be afraid of. Here is his contact info, George Mendiola, Owner and Founder Notched to an OTCH -A notch above the rest.

Emily was amazing with Winston! I couldn't have asked for a better trainer for my puppy! In the 4 weeks of training he became a much more obedient and well mannered little pup. I am more than confident to recommend Emily and her training camp to whom ever needs an efficient and responsible trainer.

Heather helped with obedience training my beagle, who is very stubborn. They did verbal commands, leash training, house training and manners, and Heather has had a lasting positive influence on my dog. She is very professional and thorough, and she brings real experience and methodology to create a personalized training outline, which helps maintain the behaviors. 10/10, would recommend again.

Chris worked our Lab-mix, Zoe, to stop her habit of jumping on people. Chris is professional, observant, and patient. And, most importantly her training is based on kindness. She was able to assess both Zoe's and our particular needs and worked accordingly to help us. Throughout our session Chris took her time not only teaching Zoe, but also teaching us. And, Chris has given us further support through a follow-up e-mail checking on Zoe's progress. With Chris's help we are well on our way to success!

AmberJoy has been Zeus dog walker for almost a year now. At first we did training with AmberJoy and the outcome was beyond amazing. AmberJoy is very knowledgeable, kind hearted and incredibly skilled. The training experience was life changing and Zeus is totally happy going to playgroups with his friends.

About

I am an experienced pet sitter and dog walker/trainer offering affordable services around Danville, Walnut Creek and San Ramon. I would love to walk your dog or play with your cat, while you're working during the day or out of town. I offer daily walks, feeding, changing water bowls or litter boxes and affection, and I am very experienced at giving medications. I also teach your dog some really cool tricks, potty training if you need help with that, or also better leash manners, all while we have fun! Previous clientele have been very satisfied with my services. I can also manage special needs of animals (geriatric, ill or aggressive), as I was a veterinary assistant at a high-volume veterinary hospital for over 3 years. My other qualifications include time at The Humane Society, A Dog's Life doggie daycare, and I am a college graduate. I am also capable of training dogs out of common household issues if you (the owner) are willing to put in some effort with me! We offer reasonable rates. References are available upon request. My wonderful yelp is on my website. Call or email me for more information. Ashley Fraser
