Dog training. Working on minimizing dog aggression in my bulldog.
I started looking at dog trainers a couple months ago but wasn’t able to get one until just recently, but Valerie was one I had talked to in the beginning and she followed up with me and when we were ready she was ready to get started. We did a private in home training with her this week which went well and she actually recommended doing a group obedience class since our dog doesn’t like people but loves dogs and learns well from them. Which actually saves us a lot of money so it was nice that she even recommended that and was looking for his best interest in learning, and not her best interest of making more money. We will be starting the group training next week and I’m excited to continue working with her and see if she’s able to help our baby in the long run.
Mark is the best of the best canine trainers! We have hired our share of dog trainers over the past 30 years and none have come close to offering the outstanding approach and knowledge base that Mark brings to his clients. He really takes his time to listen to whatever issues we have and teaches us how to achieve results quickly. We have a seven month old rescue pup who lived in a garage for the first five months of her life and was never socialized around people and other dogs. Mark met "Peanut" at our home and right away she kept her distance from him, barking and feeling threatened. By the end of the first session Peanut was eating out of Mark's hand and by the end of the second session Peanut was easily going up to Mark and rolling over for him wanting a belly rub. Talk about trust...Mark has a way with dogs that we've never witnessed and he taught us more in two sessions than we could have hoped to learn in a year with someone else. Mark knows dogs and if we could give him a ten star rating we would. We look forward to working with him to help Peanut become a confident, socialized and well trained member of our family. Our ultimate goal is for her to become a therapy dog in the senior community. We can't say it enough...Mark is awesome and we highly recommend him for all your dog training needs!
Tabitha is an amazing dog trainer! She is very knowledgeable, and enjoys what she does. Dogs find her very approachable, and even the most fearful dogs tend to warm up to her quickly. She's amazing! I refer all of my doggie friends to her!
I am very pleased to recommend Off Leash K9 Training! My dog Cooper a 1.5 year old Lab/Pitt mix is a lovable energetic pup - loves to play, be around children, and get in trouble. His main issues were listening, barking - a lot, jumping, running out the door and going wild outside like a mad man (the norm?). I was afraid he was going to complete training and loose his playfulness? That was not the case! He is still the same dog.. just better! He listens and he just understands... we trust each other more, we can play outside off-leash with the nieces and nephews, go on long hikes, and be around more people who are not use to 80lbs dogs. The first long run I took Cooper off-leash, we passed by a crying baby, a group of people playing volleyball, a man carrying a stick, and another pitt... seriously I don't know he would could have possible passed any other tempting situations - Cooper stayed by my side the whole time! My nervous running partner was amazed and we even received an invite to her lake house! When I picked Cooper up from his board and train, at first I felt a bit overwhelmed and thought perhaps I was the one who really needed the training, but Nick made it clear that I could still ask him questions anytime I needed (and share success stories!). Cooper is a great dog and I am glad I made the decision to bring him to OLK9! Thanks again Ciarra, Danny, and Nick =)
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.
We hired Dixie for our 4 year old shepherd for her anxiety issues. We had a very bad experience with another "dog trainer" so we were apprehensive about any dog trainers. Dixie was referred to us & we are so glad we called! She is wonderful! Patient, calm & a wealth of information! In 2 weeks with her help & advice we are seeing improvements with our dog! I highly recommend Dixie.
Great experience working with Ted. Very committed. Took in my dog with aggression issues and was amazed at how much he changed after two weeks. No more barking at other dogs and best of all no more aggression towards people! Thank you Ted!
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!
The crew at Off Leash k9 Training Palm Springs surpasses my expectations. I really didn’t know if there was any hope for me or my puppy, but the training my dog received, and the education I was given was second to none. I can literally take my dog anywhere now and she doesn’t even need a leash. It’s literally a different dog experience when you can let them roam off Leash with the confidence that they’ll come when called, and Off Leash of Palm Springs can deliver that life changing experience in just 14 days! Thank you so much to Morgan and her staff.
We enjoy the puppy training and look forward to more sessions
Brandy is passionate about dogs and it shows in her teaching skills. She has helped me by giving me tips, examples and built up my confidence in handling difficult dogs. I recommend her highly.
The trainers at CST really know their stuff! Helped me see the mistakes I was making and suddenly the DOG's behavior was loads better. Positive, effective affordable. 5-stars!
My completely spoiled Hound Dog needed help in many areas. After working with Brieana at Upward Dog Training, I learned so much. I followed her advice and tips and I'm happy to say, me and my dog Lion have a 100% better relationship. Once I learned how to teach him, he learned so fast. I had a great experience and have recommended them to my friends and family.
Mariah has been amazing with all our dogs, from puppies to adults to shelter pets. She is able to accommodate dogs from any background and personality, and has the skills to immediately command their attention and respect!
Carl trained my bird dog seven years ago and did a fantastic job. My dog points, finds the birds, retrieved the birds, Carl trained my Britanny to be a great bird dog as he is today.

I work on dogs on how to do things for you. I'll give you a clue using your voice, including a very high and loud tone and pitch, tone and word that you mean it. That is what owner's should do according to Jeremy Throckmorton. He works with Victoria Stilwell.
I am a certified dog trainer and behavioral specialist. We have a really fun training yard. I offer three classes for $20.00. I've been doing training for over 25 years. I believe that animals are a lot like us and learn from mistakes; I believe that it takes three years to fully train a dog. I go at the pace of the dog and owner. I take each dog and train them to their human's lifestyle. We teach words to the dogs and teach body language to the humans. I use many different methods. We need to understand that they are just animals, not robots, and make mistakes just like us. It's how we learn.
Learn to read your dog or puppy's body language so that you can quickly be in control, and have a dog that's a pleasure to be around. I will teach you how to understand and read your dog's body language, so that training will be very easy for you and your dog. If you have an understanding of what your dog is trying to communicate to you, then you can stop unwanted behaviors like: -people aggression -dog aggression -anxiety -fear -growling and barking Once you understand animal body language, your dog will provide you the position of being the leader and everything else will fall into place. Basic obedience training is included, such as: -come -sit -stay and down I believe that once your dog recognizes you as pack leader all your struggles will end and future training will be much simpler for you both. After all, if your dog can't trust you then he's not going to respect you. If he doesn't respect you, he's not going to follow your commands. I will show you how to become one with your animal. It sounds very easy because it is. I have numerous programs that can help you and your dog. Remember, I'm the expert in reading and understanding dog and people's body languages. Dogs don't need to be on medication to make them balanced. My unique program works organically with you and your dog. He will learn boundaries and structure, just like he would in a pack of dogs. Your dog gets to be a dog and do is natural, while you remain in control.
