Carrie was absolutely amazing in working with my Schnauzer, who was very unfriendly toward most men and some women. After helping me use desensitization methods, as well as protocol, which helped my dog move past this overwhelming anxiety of new people, Carrie helped me to train my dog to be a Canine Good Citizen, which I am very happy about. In recommending Best Friends Dog Training for future clients, I would emphasize the fact that Carrie works conscientiously, and with motive, and is a women with a very amazing gift in working with animals of all types. She is a wonderful behaviorist, and from my perspective, as a School Psychologist, she is one of the top behaviorist in the animal-behavior field, who truly knows what she is talking about. Thank you Carrie for all you have done for my dog and myself.

Very happy with the work Dion has done with our new pup. He is responding very well to the methods employed. Dion seem very good at identifying dog personality traits and how best to go about getting results. He is very direct and to the point which we see very much as a positive in this sort of job. Would highly recommend his services. The training is more expensive than other options out there, but after multiple conversations with other trainers, he seemed like the best fit for our needs. Other trainers interviewed told us many of the behaviors our dog was exhibiting may not be trainable. Dion was up to the task and has done an excellent job.

Pete was a life saver. He taught us the techniques we needed to change our dog's behavior. We went from chaos to calm and began to enjoy our new puppy. Pete always listened to our concerns and provide guidance. Having the training in our house allowed us to work with our dog in her environment.

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 completely changed the bad behavior of my dog. He taught me how to break my own bad habits as a pet owner that I didn't even know I had. I'm so thankful for the time he invested into me and my animal!

Jane takes care of our dog Roland at least once a week for daycare and has also cared for both Roland and our other dog, Henry, while we were away on vacation. Jane is truly an animal person - she worked for many years in animal rescue and lives with many cats and dogs that she has helped and rescued over the years. Prior to hiring Jane, we saw her dozens of times at the dog park, faithfully walking the dogs in her care. She was always calm, patient and kind with each of them, even when there was much barking and excitement going on. We trust Jane to genuinely care about and take care of our pups.

Lissa took excellent care of my two dogs and cat over an extended weekend getaway. I was so pleased with the communication and attention to every detail that she provided every day. Lissa was very careful to follow my instructions and guidelines. When I arrived home, it was obvious that my dogs were very well cared for, exercised and in a very calm and peaceful state. I've had previous experience with other pet sitting services where I arrived home to unkept, anxiety-ridden, and over-excitable pets and it was so nice NOT to have to re-train them. It was also a great benefit to get regular text messages every day along with beautiful pictures of all three of my girls, giving me peace of mind while I was away that my animals were being shown a lot of attention and love. The service I received with Lissa has made it easier for me to plan weekend getaways and deal with my hectic work schedule, knowing I have someone so trustworthy to take excellent care of my pets when I am unable to. Thanks so much, Lissa!

Alison has taken my dog Pig for 60-minute walks several times. Long walks really help burn up Pig's excess energy and help her sleep better. Alison is reliable and responsible and I can tell how much she loves Pig!

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 :)

We had a great experience with Jessica. She truly seems to love animals. Our dogs tend to get sensitive tummies when we have to go somewhere, but they did great with Jessica, she came to our house to meet the dogs, and we sat down and talked about them and a schedule. We came back from our mini vacation and the dogs seemed happy, and the left a daily report of the dogs and what they did, which I really liked. She even gathered our mail and had it waiting for us. Her rates are the best I have found. Will definitely use her again, and recommend her services.

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 went to school with animals on the brain. Originally focused on veterinary medicine, I was drawn down a different path for animal care. I respect all animals and adore the chance to observe up close or from afar.

I pay more attention to the animals then my phone or anything. I will even dress them up. Sometimes train them. Clean their houses.

I can provide your animal company. I do walking, sitting, and basic grooming. Besides having my own pets, I also have been volunteering at the Humane Society for two years. No animal is too big or small.

I grew up with all kinds of animals - rodents, cats, dogs, and horses. I started working with dogs when I was 15 years old. Now a days I work front desk at a dog training center and in my spare time, I volunteer as a dog trainer for the Dumb Friends League and I volunteer at a Boxer rescue here in Denver. I'm very comfortable with dogs of all sizes and when your dog is with me, he/she will be both physically and mentally stimulated since I love long walks and I always bring puzzle toys for the dogs.
