My dog had been acting out and I needed to find an expert on Queensland heeler behavior. Beth Jeffery of Top Dog Trainer has an outstanding knowledge of cattle dog behavior. She quickly establishes trust w/ both the owner and dog. Beth taught me in the first session approaches which were highly effective for managing my cattle dog with fear-aggression. I have had excellent experiences over the past several months w/ Beth; I highly recommend Beth for any level of dog training. I would give 10 stars were it an option.
His great he have so much love and care for our dog since his training my dog I can sleep every night with no worries
She starts training my dog later this week. But so far she comes highly recommended and was very nice on the phone
As a Disabled Veteran with the need of a PTSD Service Dog, Denise has provided the only consistent progress in my treatment with her focus on Training both me and my dog. She is exceptionally suited for training Beterans and keeping us “In the Moment” with exercises in Mindfulness. Denise empowers her clients not just with confidence training but with the Armor of Knowledge. She educated clients on all aspects of ADA Laws giving us confidence in our rights and confidence in our Dog Handling and Training. The value is exceptional and long lasting!
We are indebted to Ralf for his work with our 14 lb. Chihuahua, Logan. Ralf is a true "pack leader!" We actually saw positive results in the first hour that Ralf worked with Logan! We wanted to change the aggressive behavior Logan displayed with hearing and seeing other dogs, large dogs in particular. Ralf worked with Logan 5 weeks, 1 hour weekly. We liked Ralf's teaching technique! He modeled for us, and then observed and corrected our interaction with Logan, telling us what we were doing incorrectly and correcting our handling of Logan. To understand our dog, Ralf always clarified his techniques in terms of pack behavior. He taught us to recognize when Logan was displaying anxious behavior. It was important that we became pack leaders for our dogs, as our dogs could sense when we were anxious and, as a result, repond in a negative way. This was a very rewarding experience! If in doubt, you have to meet Ralf. You will immediately sense his leadership qualities and the command he exhibits in his dog training! Some people are just born to lead, and Ralf is one of those leaders!!!
I have an English mastiff whom I was reading wrong. So I ran into a girl who knew Paula and swore that she is the best with dogs and she also said Paula brought down the euthanize rate at the local shelters. I was skeptical because I have never had a dog trainer come to work with my dogs. My mastiff was a little different from my other dogs so I was in need of someone who knew what they were doing. When Paula came to meet djanga, the dog was doing her normal barking and showed some of her nervousness. Paula just came to just be around her pursay, and it was just so djanga could see that she's not a threat or anyone to be worried about. Paula has the most open personality and it's like these dogs just feel that vibe and soak it up. Djanga doesn't feel comfortable around most adults but she loved Paula from day two haha. I know that Paula can solve all dogs issues if not strive to give her all trying to. She would come in and we would take djanga out come back in let her chew on an antler to release her tension then go back out. It worked, I thought my dog was a goner. Djanga was getting so much better and Paula would bring different things to introduce her too, ( including her daughter). I bought a super nice leash off of her that djanga worked really well with and a few antlers. Djanga got to where she was looking for her weekly tennis ball in Paula's bag and was super happy to see her. That's not the only good thing though she is very adamant about working the dog and getting them to where they need to be to feel comfortable in their environments and just calm no stress. She did that for djanga and I'm so thankful for that. Djanga today is a better dog then she's ever been I still use her tools to this day and it has made the world so much easier to handle for her. Paula is a great person and the dogs love her but she is very patient and calm with them. Her rates are super affordable, and she will come to you where ever you are. If anyone has the chance to work with her or her work with their dog, it'll be the most wonderful experience you will ever have with a dog trainer. The only thing I would change is I would live to see Paula travel and help dogs around the world I know she could make a difference in our shelters today.
I have a very large dog that can be quite a handful. Linda is very patient and loving in how she handles him. She knows what she's doing and my dog respones very well to her.
Steve Welch of K9 Dog Training came to visit us and spent a great deal of time detailing his program and how it works. Steve and his associate, Wendy, were friendly, kind and considerate. As a result we let Babe, are Boston Terrier, and deeply loved little girl go with them to Training. We know she is happy and safe and in caring hands. I feel certain she'll return with some good lessons learned.
I met Mel when I enrolled my 7-month old labradoodle, Daisy, in her puppy training class. I hadn't had a dog in over 10 years and wanted a well-behaved dog as a companion if I am going to keep her for her lifetime. Mel's method is positive training with treats and repetition. Daisy thrived in the 6-week course and did outstanding during her puppy graduation. I then decided to enroll her into Mel's intermediate dog training class because I still had issues with how Daisy acted in public. It's been 3 weeks into the dog training and I can really see Daisy changing into a better behaved dog. She now knows how to heel when walking, stay for long periods, sit at a corner during her walks, stay until I release her to come to continue with our walk, doesn't go ballistic when she sees another dog & owner walking on the other side of the street and lets go of things she picks up during our walks (like rocks, paper, sticks etc) with the "Leave it" command. Mel really takes the time to explain each new step/lesson during each class. And there are no "Bad Dogs" in training, Always Positive. If I have questions between classes, I just email Mel and she always gets back to me to put me back on track. I definitely will be recommending Mel and her dogpanion dog training to my friends. Thanks, Carolyn & Daisy
Tommy Stark is by far the best dog trainer I have ever known. He's extremely knowledgeable and always helpful. I have a large male Rottweiler who is an absolute joy to have in every and all situations due to Tommy's training. Anytime I've ever had a question about our dog Tommy is always there to help. I highly recommend Tommy Stark. He is the best of the best! Just ask Gronk.
I bought a dog (german shepherd puppy) from Kris a couple years ago for sport work. He set me up with training and my dog is THE best trained dog I have ever owned. She has a balanced and stable temperament on top of fantastic obedience and protection. I am so incredibly happy with her and Kris is extremely knowledgeable in dog behavior and dog training of all aspects. I recommend Taylor made Working Dogs for any source of dog training or buying.

Ron is the best dog trainer ever! His love for dogs shows in his gentle, calm, and effective training techniques. He trains dog owners just as much as their dogs, and he has successful results. Under Ron's tutelage, my shelter pit bull blossomed from a fearful, anxiety-filled dog into a dog with confidence and self-esteem. She has really come a long way, in large part thanks to Ron and his teachings. Ron is also the least expensive dog trainer I have encountered. His rates are reasonable, for such high-quality training.
We are very excited to get going on training our dog with Dave. He came to our house on Saturday, and spent over an hour discussing our dogs needs, and Dave's philosophy on training. (Free consultation) We were very impressed, and feel that he will be a great fit for our family.
Maureen was very responsive to texts/calls/emails. She made sure to address the individual needs of my family/pet. She packed in so much information into just one session and provided us with some unexpected extras. We have already seen an improvement in our puppy's behavior after one session. I love her positive approach to modifying behavior. She was also super patient with us (first time dog parents). We had some very basic questions but she spent extra time with us to make sure we were set before she left. Will definitely use her again and refer friends in need of doggy help.
I had used a trainer with limited success and was frustrated by the experience. I was referred to Bark to Basics by a colleague who experienced great results by working with Melissa at Bark to Basics. We had the same great outcome. She worked with us to help us better understand our dogs responses to us. We tried Bark to Basics rewards based approach and it worked. We learned so much about dog behavior and responses from Melissa. We as pet parents, required more training than our dog! Melissa also is a pet sitter which helped reinforce our training while we were away.
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!
Jennifer has just gained a new lifelong customer. She took care of my dog flawlessly while i was gone for a few days. Prices are great and the service is second to none. I Highly recommend her. She's simply head and shoulders above the rest.
Mike worked with dog, Rocco, and I to prepare for the CGC test. He is not only an excellent trainer, who has perfected his skill set and demonstrates passion combined with eternal patience, he is very personable and caring. He was just as invested in Rocco's success as I was. I could not recommend him more highly. We hope to continue training with Mike and go on to take therapy dog and maybe service dog tests in the future.
The crew at Off Leash k9 Training Palm Springs surpasses my expectations. I really didn’t know if there was any hope for me or my puppy, but the training my dog received, and the education I was given was second to none. I can literally take my dog anywhere now and she doesn’t even need a leash. It’s literally a different dog experience when you can let them roam off Leash with the confidence that they’ll come when called, and Off Leash of Palm Springs can deliver that life changing experience in just 14 days! Thank you so much to Morgan and her staff.
Bo went in pulling on the leash and crazy excited when he saw another dog. One hour later he walked out calmly and was completely unphased by other dogs he saw. I've got to keep it up, but Paul got me and Bo back on track!
