I have a 3 year old rescued Pitbull/Labrador Mix and he’s just terrified of everything, I lost all hope of getting him trained but Jorge decided to take on the challenge and I’ve been very impressed with the little improvements I’m already seeing with him, we work on walking and focusing his attention to me and it’s going fantastic, Jorge takes the time to explain and teach you along the way for more lasting results, I think that’s wonderful, most dog trainers I’ve talked to wanted to take my dog for 3 weeks and then teach me everything he learned in an hour, I don’t learn that way. Jorge teaches me and my dog at the same time and takes the time to explain everything that he’s doing and why he is doing it! I’d definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a trainer, by far the best one we’ve talked to!
I just wanted to share our experience with Todd and South Orlando Dog Training. We had an incident with our dog Bella- she's terrified of skateboards. Usually we just avoid skateboards all together- but on a walk, a guy came up behind us on a hover board which makes no noise- and cut us off. Bella got scared and bit the guy- not doing major harm... but it easily could've ended very badly. The guy was apologetic and said he should've known better than to come up behind a dog like that. It was at that time that we knew we needed help- we NEVER want to relive that situation again. It's our job to protect her from herself... and we were beside ourselves. We didn't know what to do! We just recently relocated from Los Angeles to Orlando so we really didn't know anyone that could refer us to a dog trainer. I came across a business card from South Orlando Dog at a local coffee shop in Celebration and called to see what could be done. We've been working with Todd now for a few months and I have to say- it has made a HUGE difference. South Orlando Dog Training is all about positive reinforcement. We NEVER thought Bella could break this habit. Todd is so patient and so caring- you can tell he really loves what he does and he truly cares about his clients. I would say we hit the jackpot as far as dog trainers go. If you are even thinking of hiring a trainer for your dog- Todd is the way to go.
Monika has done a great job so far. She started off with a deep clean and oh my goodness, my house needed that! Now she is doing the routine bi-weekly cleans and it's made my life so much easier! She is great with our dog, who likes to get in everyone's business, especially when they are cleaning. Thanks Monika! I would recommend Monika's services.
Valor K9 has provide me with the best K9 I could possibly ask for. Not only did they provide me with a well mannered and intelligent companion but they also went above and beyond to bring him to me states away along with two outstanding trainers to help me with any questions and training lessons to know what to expect and how to play my part in taking in my new service dog. They help me along with so much that to say satisfied is a understatement. I genuinely appreciate everything this organization does and more. The valor K9 team definitely makes a difference and it is reflected by each individual members work ethic and character. Thanks again for putting Zodiac into my life. Battling stage 4 cancer is no easy task but having him in my life makes a tremendous difference. He given me the strength to keep fighting on. He’s with me 24/7. as I’m with him. He diffently brought joy back into my life. I noticed myself finding the strength to do more when he’s around!
Highly recommend Kim for any type of dog training. We rescued a very fearful GSD that had spend the first 2 years of her life in various pet store cages. I have dealt with many dogs before, but never one this "broken." Kim was really able to bring her around to be a happy, healthy girl!
We've done a meet and greet with Madi and our two GSDs LOVE her! We are doing an evening this week for Madi to spend some time with the dogs before she house sits with them within the next couple of weeks. Madi was extremely professional and has a great energy about her plus she's just qualified in dog training so we are looking forward to hiring her for that too to help out with our fur-babies. Highly recommend.
Dawn really helped turn my dog Juno around. She was having trouble understanding the pack order and now she's taken HUGE strides at understanding our families roles.
Affordable, convenient and made a big difference in a short amount of time with our dog.
I have had the opportunity to observe Clara & Barry while training their newest service dog. Sabrina is a beautiful, intelligent puppy and has learned so much already. Clara & Barry train with love & rewards and Sabrina is eager to learn. She already knows lots of commands, like come, stay, down, shake, sit and roll over and she's also learning to go to the door when she wants out. Clara & Barry make a great team and someone will be so lucky to get one of their service dogs Dee O
I found an amazing dog marshmallow who was the sweetest thing. However he wasn't potty trained, did not know 1 command, chewed stuff and was afraid. He was found left in a sand box. After deciding to keep him. Heather from Pawsitively Calm took him under her wing for 2 weeks. She cared about marshmallow and worked hard not just for him, but for my wife and I to make sure we got him back ready to turn over. She makes you realize the dog has all the tools we just have to own it. I highly recommend anyone who has a problem with their fur baby in any way or if even your a person considering a dog but doesn't feel you have time to train it. This is where pawsitively Calm comes in. She will take that work right off your hands. Heather is professional, dedicated, highly knowledgeable but most importantly she cares. Don't hesitate 1 second in contacting heather for your dogs behavioural issues. We thank you so, so much for helping marshmallow and us. We are forever grateful for pawsitively Calm.
great on first session!
I feel my work stands out as I go above and beyond what is needed to not only complete the job well but to complete the job perfectly.

I am a mom and dog owner of a 1-year old golden doodle. I love pets ever since I was a child. I go often for walks with dogs. I can take care of your dog and can teach good boy stuff: sitting, fetch, pawn, etc., or reinforce an already positive behavior.
I love animals and will take care of them in your home. Also, I walk them and house-sit while you are on vacation.
I take care of friends' dogs all the time: walk them and feed them. I also house sit. I'm in college, and this is a perfect job for me.
I like to relate to each individual. I train & treat your dogs like they were my own. You'll never have to question my intentions or anything else. True training happens between the owner and the dog, not the trainer and the dog.
I have a passion for pets which leads me to being comfortable with interacting, feeding them and walking them. I offer quality time spent for animals making it a better experience for the handler and the pet.
i have a very simple approach to dog training which enables the owner to be able to understand and reinforce easily, which lends to the training being more effective longterm
I love pets. I have 5 years of experience with my dog and cats. My mom is blind, and I need to help her out.
Hi, I am a 34-year-old dog lover who would like to help their owners with good care and sitting when necessary. Contact me if you are interested. Thank you.
