We have a very big, very friendly, very happy, very naughty golden doodle puppy. She is almost a year old. Although we have always had a dog, we were having a time training Georgie. Dan form Wagtime to the rescue! In just 3 lessons (training us) there has been a remarkable difference. We're very happy with our lessons and look forward to the next one.
I have known Tierney since 2014 and I am still blown away by her knowledge and skill in dog training/behavior. In June of 2015, I I purchased a 3 year old female Belgian Malinois named Vue that Tierney had put foundations on. This was my first working dog and Tierney did a great job answering all my questions and educating me on the breed as well as making sure that this dog was going to be a good fit for me. Vue was given to me with a foundation in protection work, sport work, nose work, and extremely solid obedience work. Two years with Vue and I can tell you that this is the best dog I have ever had! We have such a strong bond and work perfect together. I would not be where I am with Vue if it wasn't for the skills that Tierney had developed with her. Tierney has been there every step of the way for Vue and I. She has always checked up on us and made sure everything was going good. I know I can always contact her with even the most absurd dog training questions and she always gives me an honest and helpful answer. She continues to help me expand Vue's potential. I appreciate how Tierney uses a wide variety of training methods to create one that is appropriate for the dog and trainer she is working with. She is a problem solver and looks at the big picture when evaluating certain behaviors in a dog. Tierney develops a strong relationship with her clients and dogs she works with. Thanks Tierney!
I can't say enough abI can't say enough about K9 Training, Southern Ca, but more important trainers Gunner and Tom. They are passionate about dogs and helping canines learn. I handed over to them TWO 8 month old rambunctious Dobermans I fondly called "my hounds from hell" and received two totally disciplined, focused working dogs. Gunner not only went above and beyond with all the training but with his TLC and care when they weren't training. These dogs were totally devoted to Gunner but transferred that devotion and respect right back to me. They were able to perform all tasks ( too many to mention) the first day alone with me with that same respect. Throughout the two weeks I got several videos a day to keep me up to date with each achievement. This is worth every penny. Check out my girl, Liesel on you tube. Be as amazed as I was! It's the real deal. I'm so proud of them! Thanks Gunner and Tom! 😘❤️out K9 Training, Southern Ca, but more important trainers Gunner and Tom. They are passionate about dogs and helping canines learn.

Kelly is knowledgeable and willing to help with dogs specific training issues.
We are so happy with Terra! She is down to earth and explains things very well. It's amazing how much difference there is with our German shepherd and Border Collie mix. Not only has been training the dogs, she has been training the entire family. She is very patient and thorough. She also had great advice on the type of beds and leashes for the dogs. So far. All her advice has been wonderful! She even spent time with us talking about different food types. We couldn't have asked for a better trainer! I would highly recommend her to anyone having difficulty with their pooches!
Jenni was GREAT....my dog tasha has never been to a groomer Jenni did wonderful job ? Haircut and nails perfect. I think I was harder on me than tasha Customer for life Thanks again.
Michelle is absolutely wonderful! She is so kind, patient and loving. She helped us work with one of our foster dogs to become less fearful and thereby adoptable. Thanks so much Michelle!
WOW!! What a great experience. Presley (One Fine Canine) met and exceeded my expectations at every level. I've worked with several dog trainers in the past, and I have to say this by far was the most successful training that we've had. One thing that I really liked is that she listened to my concerns. Presley is extremely knowledgeable and was able to share that knowledge with me in a way that I could clearly understand. You can tell that Presley is very passionate about what she does and the animals and owners that she helps. Plus my dog (Tucker) loved her. I will definitely call Presley again if the need for additional training arises.
Pam continues to amaze me with how well she trains both people and dogs alike. I have had the opportunity to learn from Pam as one of her students and I continue to see the benefits our shelter dogs have as a direct result of Pam's teaching techniques. I have found Pam's teaching style to be friendly, patient and professional, leaving both students and dogs on a positive note and a sense of accomplishment. If you're looking for a dog trainer with a lot of experience training multiple students and dogs each day with positive results, I highly recommend, Pam Francis-Tuss.
My husband and I have worked with Joyce for almost a year now. Words cannot describe our fondness of her. She has and always will be more than a dog trainer. In addition to her exceptional dog training services, Joyce provided us with tips on proper dog nutrition. The first day we met Joyce, she asked to take a look at our dog's food. My husband and I were so impressed as she skimmed through the list of ingredients on the dog food bag, nodding her head yes and no. She is passionate about the well being of all dogs and is always researching and learning new things to pass on to her clients. She is peaceful (very soft spoken), reliable, and of course - SHE KNOWS DOGS!!! Not only has Joyce improved the quality of our dog's already wonderful life, but she has also left a mark on our hearts that will never be forgotten. Anyone would be lucky to have Joyce in their dog's life at some capacity, rather it be as a trainer, walker, consultant or plain old friend. Thank you Joyce! Ashly Patton Ashly Patton
Immediate response once I indicated I was interested in his service
Lisa provided at home consultation and training for our dog Charley. She is very knowledgeable and experienced and was able to quickly connect how we can manage Charley's behavior better. The results have been positive and we strongly recommend her for such services.

I am not a professional, but am very good with dogs and interacting with them. Generally, I'm really good at communicating with them, and having them listen. Give me a chance to train the doggie, and I'm certain we will get the result that you want.
My name is Jennyfer. I have been living in this area on and off for 36 years. I have been taking care of animals all my life. I feel that a house is not whole without an animal in it. I have had many jobs taking care of other people's pets, and I see their pets as a member of my family when I'm taking care of them. I am a certified dog trainer and have a degree from Animal Behavior College. I have been training dogs professionally since 2006 but my parents say that I have been training dogs and animals since I was three. I took care of all the neighborhood animals when people were away and trained some of their dogs. I have experience with all types of animals, from horses to mice. I offer the following: * Dog training: group, private, daycare, or board and train * Pet sitting in your house * Boarding in my home * Dog walking
Positive training methods have recently started coming out in the past 10 years. Not to say that the old militaristic way of doing things doesn't work, because it does, there's just a new less strict way that works just as well. Positive training is about teaching your dog what you would like them to be doing and making it a fun experience for them. There are consequences when needed but I like to focus more on rewarding the good behavior that is offered by your dog and teaching your dog that you like it when he does that so keep doing it!
Attending one of our training sessions will change you and your dogs life for ever in a positive way.
I walk dogs and will pick up excrement if not prohibited. I have experience with all types of dog (large, small, constant barkers, and ankle biters). I've worked with them all. I love dogs and enjoy spending time with animals. I specialize in bark prevention training.
We offer dog training classes during Wednesday nights at the Banner Grange Hall, 12629 McCourtney Road and Grass Valley, CA 95949.
Many consider me the #1 dog trainer in North America because no one is getting better results with behavioral problem solving, especially with aggressive dogs, AND, No one is getting better results when it comes to getting dogs to listen OFF-LEASH without SHOCK COLLARS.
American Canine Institute & Kennels has many training programs for you and your dog. We offer puppy kindergarten, obedience, agility and personal protection classes to name a few.

American Canine Institute & Kennels also has a boarding facility for dogs and cats located in 15 Acres. Our kennel runs are indoor and outdoor, heated and air-conditioned for the animal's comfort. We have individual bungalows that are heated and air-conditioned on large compounds for those dogs wanting a more-relaxed environment.
