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.
Our rescue boxer/pitbull mix (Lily) had leash aggression. We tried other trainers but couldn't get her to mind. She now loves to be called "Good Girl" . Peter was great. Wish we had found him sooner He taught us a new way to work with her. She is now great on leash, off leash and learning new commands. He was available when we called and answered all questions and met with us when we thought necessary. I would recommend Peter highly.
We learned a lot from Teresa! She helped us with techniques for our 1.5 yr old dog's fear/aggression towards strangers and leash reactivity. We were given great tools during our 3 months of training to continue improving in the future. Teresa is very knowledgeable about animal behavior and a professional that we would certainly recommend.
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!
Sean is an attentive and professional dog trainer. Amazing work.
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
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.
We adopted Chappy last year thinking that he was just a little on the shy side. But just days after bringing him home he started snapping and growling at visitors, and avoiding us. Thankfully we found Scott. He really took the time to help us understand our dog's behavior and how we could effectively influence it in a positive way. He showed us the little changes we could make to help Chappy feel more comfortable in our home and with strangers. Within weeks his aggression was gone and if you met him today you’d never guess that our happy, playful dog was ever fearful or aggressive. We’d recommend Scott to anyone looking for dog training and can’t imagine where we’d be without his help.
Bill is a great trainer with lots of experience. He is very knowledgable and has a lot of patience with the handler and the dog.
Our Thumtack contact was a very knowledgeable and confident trainer names Andi Nault. She was not dissuaded by my very active Rhodesian Ridgeback who loves people and any dog withing eye view. She worked patiently with us, gave us some new tools to use with Penny and lots of encouragement. She offered doggy daycare which I thought might be useful and it was. Penny learned to read the cues of the other dogs that didn't want to roughhouse. Andi was very good with Penny, consistent, confident, reassuring and had other options to offer us if we wanted them but no pressure. She recommended Boarding facilities we had no knowledge of, other trainers, behavioral specialists, hour long dogie play time, etc. I highly recommend Andi Nault for whatever dog behavior you want to address.
My adopted 2 1/2 year old American Bulldog (Lila) was difficult on leash and was showing signs of being dog aggressive/selective. With Lance's guidance/training I now know what to do if she pulls on leash (which is becoming less and less each day). She also knows her basic commands (sit, stay and come). As for dog aggression/selection Lance worked with her for about a hour and she is leaps and bounds better. I now know what to do for dog meet and greets and how to handle the situation if she is showing aggression. Thanks Lance!
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!
I have taken several dog training classes with Helena. She is a terrific trainer, both of dogs and of their humans. She has a good rapport with animals and a gentle, patient approach. I would highly recommend her to work with your beloved pets.
So my dog has been experiencing some slight dog aggression on our walks. I called Patrice and she was very good about getting back to me and getting something set up. She is very knowledgeable about dog behavior and assessing what the actual problem was. I have only had 2 sessions, but I am feeling very confident that with her training we are going to have much happier walks! I highly recommend her services!
Matt was a great trainer. Our dog is now 100% off leash capable! Matt has done wonders! He also came to us and trained our dog in her enviroment. Matt exceeded all of our expectations!
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!

I love dogs and helping people. These are my top two favorite things in a part-time hobby. Sign me up! I've never lived in a house without at least three dogs, sometimes as high as six or seven. So, there isn't much that I can't handle. Why I want to sit? I work for myself from home. I have loads of time on my hands, and I already take care of my dogs. They love it when we have company! Whether I come to your place or they come to mine, your dogs will get the best of care and attention. I may even do some training with them!
