My dog Tristan, a standard poodle, is getting elderly and has arthritis with very bad weakness in his back legs so it has gotten to the point that taking him to a groomer is too hard on him and more dangerous of him getting hurt. I am so thankful I found Desiree who does in-home groom visits where Tristan can be comfortable, not have to stand so long and can now even lay down in the comfort of my home and get groomed. Desiree was on time, she took time to let Tristan warm up to her, she was so gentle and has the experience to gently handle my elderly dog, she cleaned up after, she was so friendly and easy to talk to and Tristan looked wonderful afterwards! She even helped put a name to a possible health problem just from hearing Tristan cough so will ask my vet about it. I am so happy to have found Desiree and she has gained a permanent customer.

Pete's training was "Training the Trainer". It was amazing! He's punctual, and very professional. The guidelines and notes that Pete provided was very helpful. He also demonstrated how to train. I agree with Pete that it is always better that the owner of the dog train so that the bonding is better. With just two hours of training, my dog has already picked up few commands. Thank you Pete!

Old dogs CAN learn new tricks! My 14 year old chihuahua has gained self confidence and decreased separation anxiety thanks to working with Courtney. I beam with pride and happiness when watching my dog become so engaged and enthusiastic while training. I am continually impressed by Courtney's patience, compassion and knowledge in working with dogs and their humans. I highly recommend Devoted Dog Training.

Overall Kevin has a lot of knowledge in dog training and worked very well with us and our dog. The only downside would be his punctuality.

Les is the best of the best when it comes to dog training. He knows his stuff and it was apparent from the way he connected with our dog in the first training session. He truly cares about each client and is committed to seeing them succeed. We saw results after the very first training session and the progress was remarkable following each session. Les comes prepared to each session with treats and training aids. He gives you "homework" to do with your dog after each session to prepare you for the next. He even follows up with you after each meeting to see how things are going. Les played a significant role in shaping our puppy into the dog he is today. I highly recommend Les for dog training, we will definitely use his services again!

John is very knowledgeable about the psychology of dogs and he came to our house to show us how to deal with the specific problems we were having at home. Taking our dog out to another trainer was not addressing our specific behavior problems at home. John is very nice and caring of our dog and we have been very happy with his dog training. He has given us the tools that we need to work on our dogs behavior and let our dog be an active member of our family.

I was very nervous about signing up for dog training, especially the board and training program because I was worried that Ford would forget me and return even worst than before. I talked to four different trainers and ultimately, my choice came down to what kind of results I wanted - Tierney guaranteed that Ford would obtain a certain level of standardized obedience and this made me feel secure in my choice to train with her. Tierney was quick to console my fears and she spent a lot of time going over all the different options of her program, it didn't take me long to feel at peace with the choice to give Ford the best possible training I could. She will be working on his off leash obedience and house manners, plus she is addressing all of his aggression issues. I feel comforted knowing that she is a national-level competitor and continues to further her education in the field, I am also very excited to hear that all of her training is documented so that I can stay up to date on the progress daily! I strongly recommend Tierney and her services. I cannot wait to unleash my beast!

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!

Jackie gave dog training lessons to our 4 year old boxer which we just got from the Boxer Rescue Assoc. We were totally impressed with everything she did. Her training was excellent and even after a few sessions we saw a significant difference in our dog. Would highly recommend Jackie, she even helped get our cat and dog to be happy together in the same room, something we thought would never happen!

Maj is kind, a good listener, and a deeply empathetic human being. She also happens to use those skills as an excellent dog and dog-human trainer:) She’s prompt, responsive and pretty darn reasonably priced. I’d highly recommend her to anyone looking to solve a dog issue or just deepen their existing relationship with their animals. Really, there should be more stars to give her:)))))

I met Emily by chance walking our dog Stella. Stella is an American Staffordshire Terrier whom we rescued through the Peninsula Humane Society when she was 5 months old. They had found her running in and out of traffic. Stella is a sweet and loving dog, and full of lots of energy. Emily noted Stella and I walking, or I should say her pulling me as I tried to not let her pull me. Despite having her 2 years, we still didn’t have the training thing down. My partner and I had been looking for a trainer but for whatever reason, just never found the right person or took the time to jump into it. Walking with her through our neighborhood in SOMA could be a challenge, and I have to admit, kind of sucked. We were using a harness that clipped on the back. Emiliy advised that what I was doing was “literally how you train sled dogs” and advised a front lead harness. She gave me a card and made some recommendations of harnesses that I could find on line. The next day, I went and got a front lead harness and put it on Stella. OMG. Like a different dog. She wasn’t pulling and would actually walk beside me. I took a video and emailed my partner, and said “You won’t believe it!”. I called Emily and we hired her that day. The changes that we have seen in Stella have been unbelievable. We live in SOMA and went from a pulling dog who would bark at skateboarders, jump up on little kids, and eat everything on the ground (including homeless pooh – gross!) to a dog who is interactive with us, plays agility games (jumping up or standing on hydrants for a treat), backing up from children and sitting calmly for attention, totally ignoring skateboarders, and leaving homeless pooh and other things where they belong, on the ground. I am amazed that this is the same dog. What I love the most about Emily and her training is that her techniques are about management and engaging your dog. Stella is Stella. My partner and I don’t believe in shock collars, aggressive management or training your dog into submission. The first part of her life was hard enough, we want a relationship with our dog of trust and love. Emily understands and advocates this theory. Stella is who she is. She is still the happy, rambunctious, energetic dog who loves life, people, and other dogs. What Emily showed us is how to channel that energy into productive and fun ways of expression. The training has really built a closer bond with Stella and she is very focused on us as we walk. The walks have actually become really fun. The true test came last week up in Santa Rosa where we have a home in the country. Stella goes crazy over the wildlife (turkey, deer, rabbits, etc). She will often try to get out and chase them. A front door was inadvertently left open and Stella escaped from our home and ran down the driveway, near the cow pasture. This is a dangerous spot and she has run under the fence and chased the cows in the past. My partner said, “back up” from about 200 yards away. She stopped, turned, came running back up the driveway and sat at us feet. Unbelieveable. I highly recommend Emily! The money and time was worth the improved quality of life that we have with our family member, Stella.

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!

Gail has been walking our dog Val for about 6-7 months now and she is fantastic! I can't say enough about Gail's attentiveness, reliability, and great communication. We have had previous dog walkers an Gail is by far the best. She frequently sends pictures or videos of the day's walk, which is really thoughtful. She is also very flexible and works with us and our schedule. We originally had Gail come a few days a week, but we are so happy she now comes Monday through Friday. It's clear she really cares about the dogs she works with and wants to make sure they're happy. If you're looking for a reliable, trustworthy, and thoughtful dog walker, contact Gail!

We met with Kevin for an initial consultation for our 2 boxers. In the short time he spent with us, our dogs learned so very much. Kevin showed an instant connection with our boys and we are excited to start working with him. He was able to answer all our questions and provide honest answers.

Sylvette is part of the family already! Flexible with times, sweet, funny and she loves our Chappie as much as he loves her. Her walks are always varied and interesting and our dog gets great exercise working off his 1 1/2 yr old pent-up energy. When she first got Chappie, he was a shy young man, not at ease with other dogs. Now, thanks to her loving encouragement he's opened right up and now has made lots of other two-legged and four-legged friends. He runs to her when she gets here to pick him up and returns to us as happy as ever. She gives him love as if he were her own, keeps up our training/discipline regimen and only gives him delicious healthy treats and food. She's even watched him for a week while we were out of town. We've been through larger dog walking services and we will never go back. Longue Vie Sylvette!

Keynoe did a great job with getting my pit bull Rhylie back on track. We came to him with behavioral problems with leash pulling, not listening to us, recall issues, and greeting people who come into our house. After just a few weeks of sessions I can honestly say that my dog has significantly changed for the better! She listens to us, comes when called and walks are so much more enjoyable now for both of us.
