I am amazed with the excellent results I have experienced immediately after training with Raquel. I couldn't be more pleased!! Thanks to Raquel, our Morkie is already responding very well in less than a week. I would recommend Happy Paws to anyone.

We have our first puppy and we were struggling with many dog training issues (integration with two adult cats, potty training, biting, barking - the works!) and Karen was a great partner in helping us communicate better with our puppy and achieve great results. She is knowledgeable, passionate, and eager to make a difference.

DeeCee is awesome!! She truly is a dog lover and committed to her work. I needed help training my rescue dog to become a service dog and she did a wonderful job teaching us all the tips and tricks. She's very passionate about her work, which translates into great results when training your dog. She's very flexible and willing to help in any way she can. I highly recommend her. Thanks DeeCee!

Denise was great with my German Shepard name Misty. When I started with her Misty was jumping and pulling me where I could not control her. After two months I was able to train with her in 4 Paws for Patriots. She is now a certified service dog. We would not have been able to complete that task without her training. Vance Myers

Duane is a superb dog whisperer!!! I have worked with other dog trainers before but I have never met someone like Duane. It seems he has an incredible sensibility and ability to read each dog and know how to communicate with them. I just got my Stella, 5 year old English Bulldog, returned home after 5 weeks of board and training by Duane. Stella was very aggressive with other dogs and small children. She had virtually no obedience training whatsoever and never socialized with other dogs. I always had to warn approaching strangers, especially if they had a dog, that Stella was "not so friendly". Then a 8 week old chocolate Lab puppy came into our life and turned our home life upside down. Stella was very jealous and aggressive towards the puppy. My poor puppy was scared to death and something had to be done. Duane took Stella and trained her in his home for four weeks and the fifth week, I sent Henry to Duane for a week to be with Stella so that they could get acquainted and may be bonded. Frankly, I wasn't too sure whether Stella could change. I had a back up plan for the puppy in case the board and training with Duane did not work out. I am so happy that Stella and Henry are back home and they get along so beautifully, thanks to Duane!! It is so wonderful to have two dogs in the house without any tension. Duane is very professional, honest and very easy to work with. He answered all my questions, my numerous phone calls were never ignored, and I felt at ease about the whole process. It is clear to me that Duane loves and cares deeply about the dogs he trains and dogs love him back. Duane followed up with the second visit to our home today, and both Stella and Henry were so happy to see him. Stella actually wanted to follow Duane out as if she wanted to go with him. I have never seen Stella act like this with anyone outside her own family. We are so pleased and happy that we found Duane and can not recommend him highly enough. He is the real Dog Whisperer! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Duane!!!

Who doesn't know Lassie? When I was a kid Lassie was long running tv show. I never missed it. Bob's grandfather, Rudd, trained Lassie. Then his dad took over the family business, and Bob followed suit. I met Bob while we both worked in the financial services industry. He actually set up a day for my daughter and niece to spend a day playing with Lassie at Lassie's house. Imagine a child having the chance to just spend a day playing with Lassie? She has never forgotten it, and still has pictures around her room of her and Lassie. I know that Bob has developed a dog training business that has turned out very successfully for him. He does a great job.

Stefanie has trained 4 of my dogs over more than 10 years and I cannot sing her praises enough! She has true compassion for all animals and has rescued and found homes for countless number of dogs. She has a real gift of "talking" to the dogs -- she can read their personalities and they bond with her. She is experienced, professional, strict but kind and understands all breeds -- purebreds and mixed. She assesses the situation, background, needs, etc. of the owner/s as well as the dog and adjusts her training method accordingly. Above and beyond her dog training skills, Stefanie is a warm, principled, caring person. I consider her a friend as much as my dogs' trainer.

Pawsability was above and beyond anything I could have imagined! I have a new rescue dog and I wanted to make sure she stayed in our home when we went away. We also wanted to start her off on some basic training so we hired Pawsability to come and take care of Sky. We had a meet and greet at my house and Theresa spent a good hour explaining her services and even giving us tips to help us w our new rescue. During the stay they took sky on the daily trips they do as part of the community daycare program and Sky got to be socialized and have "on the job" training with other dogs and new people. We were sent texts, videos and photos frequently with wonderful updates about sky's progress. My house was left beautifully and Theresa even washed the sheets and towels she used. She left a report and set up our final training session that was included in our board and train fee. Oh and the fee was extremely reasonable. When we returned home Our dog was happy, healthy and had learned the beginnings of obedience training. I couldn't be happier and highly recommend this service. We will definitely enroll Sky in their daycare as well.

Love Ur K9 saved our relationship with our puppy. Our dog went through two trainers and destroyed an endless array of items in our house when we finally found Kevin and Love Ur K9. After training with Kevin, our dog is like a whole new pet - still playful and lovely, but obedient and a joy to have in the house.

I met Ron at a park in Anaheim Hills with my 4 month Rottweiler puppy. At this point, Diesel and I have had 2 lessons with Ron. I see a huge improvement with Diesel. He listens, is attentive, loose leash walks with me instead of dragging me, sits, comes, finds and can be coaxed from being agitated to relaxed in a matter of minutes. I now feel comfortable taking him to a park setting with kids, bicycles, skateboards and other dogs without the feeling of having to constantly have a tight hold on him or worried he will take off running. I highly recommend Ron and Dogwood K9 Training to anyone with a new puppy or highly excitable dog. Well worth the money!!!

Dave was such a great help to us in training our dog (or us, really)! He really took the time to explain the process and work with Sadie to overcome her fearful reaction to other dogs. She's made great progress & we look forward to more training sessions in the future. Highly recommended! Oh, and Sadie absolutely LOVES HIM.

This review is long overdue. We worked with Dave a few months back and he is fantastic! My husband and I have a 19month old Goldendoodle who has had previous training, puppy training through Petsmart and Petco but none of it compared to the training we received from Dave. He is great at what he does and explains things in a way that make total sense, like why didn't I think of this before?! He uses positive reinforcement training, which was huge for us. Dave works with your schedule and is flexible, he emails you after every session to go over what you've learned and how to continue the training when he's not around. We see a total difference in our dog after having sessions with Dave, we are looking forward to having him back in the near future to continue our training!

Our dog, Coconut, received puppy training through Laguna Niguel City classes taught by Wendy, about two years ago. Ever since then, we have used Wendy's help for training, dog walking, as well as pet boarding services. There are a few major points to mention about Doggie Do Pet Services / Wendy Brookhyser: 1. She is very reliable, responsible, and caring. 2. Our dog, Coconut, absolutely loves and adores her. 3. Wendy is one of the best trainers we have seen. To our eyes, she is an expert in dog training and dog behavior. In addition to puppy training, Wendy helped us with Canine Good Citizen training, and Coconut passed the test with flying colors one year ago. 4. Last, but not least, when Coconut returns from pet boarding with Wendy, he has played so much that he sleeps for a day or two!!!

Daryl is wonderful! He is super responsive and available. Answered all my questions promptly and sent me videos of my dog during the time he was being boarded and trained. Daryl is extremely professional and considers us part of his family. The dogs he works with are unbelievably well trained. It seems like he does a lot of personal protection dog training, although we took my Corgi puppy to him for obedience training. My puppy is very “willful” and needed an extra week of training and Daryl was incredibly accommodating for us. I couldn’t believe he would be willing to go the extra mile to make sure we and our dog are satisfied. Thanks Daryl!

Daniele is an instinctual, thorough, heart centered, Cat & Dog Behaviorist / Whisperer. She has incredible knowledge about animals, she is literally a walking encyclopedia on the subject. Daniele has the ability to assess & evaluate your pet accurately based on their specific personality and then put together a complete training package to resolve any challenges you may be facing. Her process is quick, fun and very clear. She and her team are a complete one stop shop for pets. Anything you might need from nutritionalists, cage free doggie daycare, pet jewelry designers, homeopathic medicines and formulas, water therapists and even a pet massage therapist to mention a few. She is dedicated to not only your results but also to helping you get a deeper understanding of your pet so you'll be able to communicate to them more thoroughly with ease. I would highly recommend her with confidence to anyone who needs help with their pet... especially if it's a rescue pet she's AWESOME!

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!
