Courtney is one heck of an amazing trainer! She is not only wonderful with dogs, but she also has an incredible talent for working with people, too. She will help you to understand your dog's behaviors and she emphasizes fixing problematic behaviors instead of just managing them. I can't recommend her enough for anything from puppy training to advanced obedience and fear-based behaviors.

Met with Logan yesterday. He immediately had a connection with my “problem child”. Showed a few basic obedience drills and a Specific one that has Sadie being much more enjoyable for her favorite visitors. Looking forward To seeing where we can take her. My older Pup liked him also - enjoyed the experience.

Five stars out of five!!! Tammy is a great trainer. In only three sessions, my new little rescue dog is doing all the training basics: sit, stay, heel, come, and down. We are working on others. Plus, Tammy is personable, patient, and so dog knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!

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.

My puppy Minnie gets excited even hearing Susan's voice on the phone, she loves her so much. It's also amazing knowing she has an exhausting afternoon and I don't have to worry about drop off or pickup. And on top of all that Susan is always willing to help - on the phone or in person - with various training issues Minnie is having. I couldn't manage Minnie without her!!

In our search for training for our 4 dogs we found Didi. Little did we know Didi is just what we were looking for! We did dot realize the difference between obedience training and a behavior training. She has taught us how to teach our dog proper behavior. Didi gives us Lessons that are easy to understand and complete with our dogs. I highly recommend California Canine!

Dog training saves lives, and Holly has what it takes to help dogs and their families develop a bond that will keep everyone out of trouble! Our dog has a great temperament but a mind of her own, along with a strong prey drive (that may extend to smaller dogs, as she has bitten one before and lunged at others). Holly has helped us get our dog into a mindset where those distractions are not overpowering. We could not be happier to know that our dog will be able to be a safe and loving part of our family. She worked wonders with our dog, and I'm confident Holly has the skill to handle more extreme cases. Worth every penny and then some!

We absolutely love Emily and will continue to use her for ongoing help with our puppy! Emily helped us make huge leaps with our puppy's training. She came down to the South Bay every day for pick-up/drop-off and we appreciated the convenience. Emily established a routine for our puppy, worked on crate anxiety and barking issues, and trained her to respond to basic commands. Additionally, when we have gone out of town, she has looked after our puppy lovingly. We love how Emily sends us Snapchats and text updates so that we can see our puppy's progress through the weeks. She also let us visit our puppy a few times while we boarded her which was so great. There is no one like Emily! We cannot endorse Puppy Love Puppy Camp strongly enough!

I find Mary to be very professional, friendly, conscientious and knowledgeable about the many things necessary for taking care of our cats when we are away. I also know Mary just attended an extended training on pet CPR and First Aid which makes me more impressed and comfortable with her skills. I think our pets get more individual attention from Mary when we are gone than we can provide during a normal work week. I highly recommend her. I can tell my cats get great attention from her and I have seen her interact with them and they are very comfortable with Mary.

Lisa is a wonderful trainer and dog walker. She is knowledgeable about dog behavior and what works well. Lisa trained our dog for obedience commands and everyone raves about how well behaved our little guy is. I'd recommend Lisa highly. Our little one loves her.

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.

Brandon is wonderful!! I hired him to walk my Pit/Bulldog mix. He is responsible, respectful and loves dogs! He has been so great with my little Ruby even doing some training as part of her walks. I highly reccomend him and hope one day my little girl will behave enough to join his group walks.

Stoakly, had issues with leash pulling, attentiveness and general obedience. After working with Keynoe with his 3 week transformative program, Stoakly is a completely different dog! Listens to basic commands when we walk and is so much calmer. We even had the opportunity to hang out with other dogs at the local park - the dogs got along so well and Keynoe managed all their behaviors at once. I was really impressed by how easy Keynoe is to work with, his professionalism and flexibility when working with me and Stoakly 1:1. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking for help with training and even if you just want a fun and reliable friend for your dog.
