Pete came to help a first time dog trainer (myself) with my new rescue dog. Just as he says is needed for success he was calm cool collected. He gave a lot of ritual information to help with the relationship of me and the dog. She already does better on walks (yes same day) with using the prong collar. We worked with her on place and the same day she is using the spot to relax which has made her less anxious! Very knowledgable and is straightforward on how to train your dog and most importantly yourself! We are key to our dogs success.

Courtney is an excellent dog trainer. Our puppy and we have learned so much from her - she focuses on great modeling and positive reinforcement and her enthusiasm and professionalism are ever present. I have recommended Courtney to others and will continue to do so. She is excellent.

Les is fantastic! He is truly dedicated and passionate about the services he provides. Not only is he a great trainer and dog walker companion, his pet delivery service is perfect for anyone in need of a drop off or pick up that just doesn't work in your schedule. I highly recommend giving him a shot, you will NOT be disappointed!

Kevin impressed us with his willingness to work around our schedules and to patiently manage our young rescue dog. Our dog reacted to him better than others we interviewed so, in a sense, she chose Kevin. His rates are very competitive too. We hope this is the beginning of a long and successful relationship!

Angelique P.
Verified review

Angela is a fun, quirky lady who really cares about your pup. My little pupper, Rufus, needed a haircut badly, but I could not get an appointment this week or drop him off to his regular groomer in the Fillmore next week. Angela made a house call yesterday and lugged all her gear to my apartment to give my dog a bath and haircut. I offered to help her since she went out of her way and didn’t have her regular assistant with her (also, it would have taken forever!) and let me tell you, if “assistant” grooming is that hard I can only imagine how exhausting the actual grooming is! With me helping her it took a little over 2 hours and it’s not like she took breaks or dragged anything on – my dog, a 22 pound Shih-Poo - took about 2 hours and 25 minutes for: nails, ears, glands, bathing, blow drying and a haircut. She really gets in there and makes sure the paws are on point. She is meticulous in her method and takes the time to assess what the best course of action is for your dog’s haircut. She switches blades often, making sure that she can get rid of matted fur without compromising your dog’s look or safety. Angela was super caring with Rufus, much like how I act with him. I would definitely recommend her skills!

Rusty is extremely knowledgeable in all areas of dog training. We found him through Thumbtack. What set him apart from other trainers who responded to my ad was his attention to my exact details for the needs I required for my dog. He pin-pointed the specific areas he would be able to focus on helping us and highlighted his experience in these areas, which is very extensive. We also love that he travels to our home and helps our dog in the environment that is most comfortable to him. He eventually shifted outside of the home, incorporating other physical spaces that were natural to the outside world. His first meeting with us was complimentary because he wanted to make sure he was the right fit for us, as much as we were the right fit for him. We appreciated that he had our dog's interest at heart. He explained that he has been working in shelters for many many years and with former bait dogs and Vietnamese street dogs for years, helping to reduce fears and aggression. He also had extensive knowledge on providing basic commanding tools. He has recently started his own company and is clearly ready to have his own business up and running. I do hope this review will assure those looking for the right trainer to give Rusty a call for your complimentary consultation. Rusty is a dog whisperer and I would highly recommend his services. We are so grateful to have found him.

I had a meet & greet with Sonia yesterday; she brought her "pack" of dogs to meet my dog, who is sometimes aggressive toward other dogs. Sonia really seems to know her stuff, and gave me great advice on dealing with my dog!! And he behaved pretty well around all her dogs, thanks to her coaching! I was impressed!

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.

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!

Ryan is awesome. I moved to the area and didn't know anyone. My dogs are so important to me and I was anxious about finding a dog walker to help me out. From the start Ryan was really positive and super nice. He is communicative and flexible. He mixes up the walks by taking my dogs to the dog park and for walks. My schedule can be a little unpredictable and Ryan is always able to adjust. I highly recommend him!

Stella not only watched my puppy but trained him this past week! She has saved my life with the potty training and it only took her a few days!!! She is very knowledgeable when it comes to puppies. Everything went smoothly! I was so happy to get updates and pictures of him everyday. I'll be using her again for sure.

We got a rescue puppy. While adorable, she's got many of the behavior issues rescue dogs may come with, especially destructive anxiety. I've trained dogs before, and this dog has made me run out of ideas. Amy has consulted with me many times on ways to reduce her anxiety and help her with everything from getting the hang of potty training to not nipping at the kids. She has always tried her hardest and done her best. All with positive reinforcement methods too! She's taken on tough cases and doesn't give up. She's great at coaching owners too so we can genuinely help the dog. If you're not working with Amy, you don't have the best - yet! Give her a hollar!

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.

I highly recommend Barkeley K-9 University. Pat keeps an open mind and always has an idea/solution for any issues. He has knowledge of numerous methods (not all dogs are the same!) and makes training pleasurable for both owner & dog. Always punctual & professional, he works well with people and teaches you how to work efficiently with your pets. Over the years, we have trained 3 dogs with Pat and are always pleased with the outcome. Group classes have been great as well. We receive many compliments on how well behaved our dogs are. Best of all, dogs love him!
