We have been sending our dog to Susan at Nu Pawspective for about a year now. Susan is an intelligent trainer with a "dog whisperer" instinct for dogs. Our dog loves going with Susan every day and always comes home exhausted and happy. We are thankful to have someone whom we trust to care for our dog as much as Susan does.

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.

Jillian (the dog) and I enjoyed working with Courtney and I am so pleased to be able to walk Jillian without being dragged all over the neighborhood. Jillian is happy too since now she gets to go on fun walks more often.

Pete has a very calm and good manner with the dogs and so much useful instructions for training, which help manage the behaviors. We really like his kind, but stern approach with repetition vs. other trainers who are very aggressive physically and verbally with the dogs. Pete't training style fits well with our personalities as dog parents. We will start putting into practice what we've learned and plan to use Pete's services again for additional training advice.

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.

I'm still working with Maj. I have a rescue German Shepard that has various behavioral difficulties and separation anxiety. Maj knows Shepards well and has that gift to be able to work with and handle (all) dogs well.

Debbie DeMello has helped me a lot in dealing with behavioral issues I was having with my dog. She is caring, direct, and knows what makes dogs tick! She helped me with practical suggestions, training tips, and follow-up. She also teaches small classes which I am continuing to attend with my dog. Great trainer!

I could never say enough good things about California Canine. I was at a lost with our 1 year old German Shepard "Rocky" Our vet suggested we give California Canine a call. Well, that was the beginning, DiDi is the animal whisper. She worked not only with Rocky, but with us. She gave us a change to get to know our dog and also what he needed to be a good companion. She is devoted to animals and to what is good for both the dog and his owner. Rocky is now 3 years old and we take him everywhere with us. Thank You California Canine for always being there.

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.

Holly is an excellent dog trainer! She uses solid training methods to produce reliable results, no matter the behavior, breed, temperament, history, etc. Her training approach moves beyond correcting specific issues; instead she addresses the overall mindset of the dog to produce a calm, balanced and HAPPY dog, which then eliminates any and all behavior problems. That's what I call effective dog training! Beyond her skill with dogs, she is equally skilled with teaching people how to employ the training techniques. She is a joy to work with--she has a positive and supportive attitude, clear communication, and a genuine desire to help folks foster a desirable relationship with their dog(s). I have had the pleasure to work with Holly over the last several weeks to address my dog's leash reactivity and fear based dog aggression. In ONE session my dog was able to walk past several packs of dogs barking and lunging behind fences with no issue whatsoever. I wouldn't believe it if I didn't see it with my own eyes (and boy did my dog look proud of herself!)! We look forward to continuing our training with Holly so my dog can earn off leash privileges at dog beaches, camping, etc. If you are seeking a dog trainer, save yourself the trouble of looking elsewhere and start with Holly! You and your dog(s) will be glad you did.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
