My dog Lilly and I started in September with Dion. Each class was a learning experience. I am very pleased to say Lilly (golden-doodle) is a well mannered dog on leash and when people come over. Its a commitment for you and the dog. Real time training (park setting) is great as you and the dog experience the squirrels, other dogs, people and the every day sounds. As the issue of either the owner or the dog or both (LOL) arose Dion would correct you/dog. Dion is very accommodating. I reviewed all the dog trainers I could find. And am So pleased to have been able to choose the Right trainer for us. We can walk without issue. When Lilly wants to act up I (the leader) now know what I need to do. Thanks Dion for your dedication to better living of dog and human.

We love Kay and are so happy to have her working with us on puppy training. She is full of helpful ideas and has been instrumental in teaching each of us (3 teenagers included) how to best train and get the results we are looking for. Each session she brings new information and tools to train with and our puppy just loves her. We are so grateful to have her with us on this journey!

Chris knows his stuff! If you need help with training your dog he's the one to go to! We had our pup stay with Chris and when he came back to our house he was a model dog! It was pretty amazing that what Chris taught him didn't go away when he left Chris' home - it stuck with our pup back at our house. We definitely recommend Chris!

Could not have asked for a better experience with Rogue Foothill Dog Training. The owner Allison's communication was incredible as she sent me daily texts and photo updates of my dog's progress. Their training is effective and I highly recommend for anyone searching for dog training/boarding.

I met Alex Canby the second week I moved to Boulder. We immediately connected when I showed him the picture of Gus, my Great Dane (I have to show everybody his picture). Alex then told me he was a therapy and behavioral dog trainer. I was immediately interested in hearing more as I have always wanted Gus to be a therapy dog, but, more importantly, Gus hadn’t made the move yet, and I was concerned how he would adjust. Alex offered me his contact information in case Gus had any issues adjusting. I am a student at CU Boulder and was heading out for my first day of classes. Gus was nervous in his new environment, and being a Great Dane, he was able to convince me with his size to miss all of my classes and stay with him. Gus literally held on to me as I tried to leave. When I finally left, he tried jumping through the window and attempted breaking through the door of my apartment. I had no choice but to email my professors and say I would not be attending class. For the rest of the week, I took Gus to daycare, but the costs were adding up. I contacted Alex, who offered me some great tips on how to make Gus more comfortable. I was surprised to see how quickly I saw results. I even told Alex he should charge more based on the quick and effective results. It was certainly less expensive than daycare, and Gus was actually learning to be a better dog. Since then, I have stayed in contact with Alex for Gus's random behavioral issues. Alex always has an answer and helps me correct the issues right away. In addition, as time permits, I have anticipations to work with Alex to pursue Gus as a therapy dog. I have already recommended him to many and will continue to do so. Emily Morrison Boulder, CO

Dan has been wonderful with both of our dogs. We had no idea what we were doing wrong. After one session, we have seen impressive results. No longer do we have 2 unruly dogs running the house. Instead we have 2 dogs who are starting to learn patience and manners. Dan was confident he could help us and we are already seeing incredible results. Our aggression and hyperactivity issues have been corrected using very easy techniques and methods that take moments to practice. Dan was patient and understanding and someone who truly loves and understands dogs. We can't wait to work with him more. Thank you Dan! His techniques truly work and we are already seeing great progress after 1 session. We highly recommend Dan!

Patricia helped me out immensely during a very hard time in my life. My mother had been admitted into the hospital for an extended period of time leaving her 3 cats and large dog alone. As I was busy with work, it make it impossible for me to care for them properly. Thank God for Patricia who'd been highly recommended by a friend. She arrived promptly and took charge of the situation leaving me with the peace of mind I needed to see to my mother's health. Patricia went out of her way to only care for the animals but also spent quality time with them, playing and just hanging with them. She made sure the pets were well fed and that they never felt abandoned or lonely. Patricia was a life saver and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable, warm assistant no matter the calling.

Helena was an amazing dog trainer both for our rescue dog Woodrow, and for us. Her training was multi-faceted in that she trained us as much as she trained our dog. Woodrow is a rescue, and we called Helena after he developed a rather nasty biting habit. We were desperate to get help immediately, and unlike other companies in the area, Helena called us back immediately, and like us, took the issue of our aggressive dog very seriously. When other companies believed that it was "just a phase" or that a muzzle or a shock collar would be the best course of action, Helena respectfully disagreed. She proved that aggressive dogs can and will respond well to positive reinforcement and behavior modification through intense but rewarding training techniques. When we "interviewed" Helena, she met us at our house for a 90-minute consultation. She provided us with printed handouts on aggression as well as some initial training techniques to begin. We decided to go with her, which was a life-changing decision for our dog; Woodrow has improved drastically since Helena has worked with him. When we first had Woodrow, he could not be within 20 feet of a stranger without barking or growling, and now, his "bubble" has been greatly reduced. During our 8-weeks with Helena, we worked on a doorbell training routine, practiced how to be around other dogs on walks, learned what to do if a stranger approaches us on a walk, how to manage off-leash dogs, and even how to navigate when someone hugs me (he is protective, too!). She came to our house/nearby park always, which was so important as my husband and I both work full time. She was flexible with our schedules and made herself available based on our availability. Finally, her rates are very manageable and fair. It's easy to see that Helena is not concerned with gouging our paychecks for her noteworthy service--she simply wants to see dogs improve. It's refreshing! With Helena you get a true professional who will put your dog at the forefront of her practice. Without Helena, we were ready to give up on our sweet boy, but now, we have renewed hope that he can he rehabilitated for good. Thanks Helena and Training House Calls for being exactly what we needed to save our dog. Best decision ever :)

My Aussie is a happy, healthy eight year old, but he was always really difficult to take for a walk. He just didn't respond to the leash, no matter the collar or the trainer, and I'd tried several of each. I would come home from what should have been a pleasant walk in tears. Then I found Rick. Now long walks with Rolly are a blessing for us both, and his obedience training has made living with my active guy much easier and more fun. I am sooooo grateful. I've also watched Rick with other dogs. He is a master of his craft. Big, little, tough or timid, he knows how to help them and how to help you, so your bond and time together become more fun and rewarding.

Victoria with Furever Behavior Dog Training is a wonderful trainer. Our dog was a rescue who had lived on the streets and he had many issues. Our dog guarded his food and toys, did not know basic obedience or manners, was not housebroken, did not know to come when called, did not know how to walk on a leash without pulling my arm off, did not know about or like his crate and more. After working with Victoria, we learned how to give our dog the cues he needed to get the behaviors we all wanted. He quickly learned to love his crate as his safe and special place, housebreaking was rapid and our dog learned to trust us. Victoria gave us the tools and skills we needed to be good dog owners and our dog responded positively and swiftly to Victoria's techniques. And, speaking of positive, Victoria only uses positive training methods -- no punishment. And our dog loved, loved, loved Victoria. Well done!

She is a kind, caring individual. While caring for my dog while I was out of town, she ensured the well being and comfort of my girl. She is also a fabulous cook as I have her fix a few meals a week for me.
