Working with Rita has been a phenomenal experience. She is professional, knowledgeable, but more than that she is an excellent instructor. You explain what you need and she has a resolution. Rita makes training easy. She makes sure you know how to work with your dog. Her hands on training gives you the knowledge and confidence to continue training. Both you and your dog will benefit from working with Rita. It’s reward based and fun. Don’t worry if you’re not getting it Rita is a phone call away. Her time with you is not just a schedule and we’ll talk about it on your next visit. She is there in between to guide you. I can not say enough about this remarkable woman and Canine Revival.
We hired Mandy to come to our home for a dog training session to work with our Chihuahua Boston mix, who is unpredictably aggressive to people and dogs. She was flexible with our schedule. She asked all of the right questions to fully understand our dog, and was great at reading his body language to get to the core reason for his behavior. We've been following her advice and have seen improvement in just a few days, and looking forward to continuing to teach him some better manners! Overall our experience was excellent, we highly recommend Mandy at Terra Paws.
Our initial training session was awesome! Lynne has a very calming personality and clearly explained what she was doing and why. I am looking forward in continuing our training with Lynne and alone. I feel the husband and I will be very successful. Xena and Emma also say thank you for training our humans. We feel so much better having mom and dad in control. :-)
Lori at Brown's Dog Training, Lodging, and More was FANTASTIC! Our Pitbull lab turned one when he was with Lori. He chewed on everything, including us - jumped on everyone, pulled us along as we tried to walk him, and chewed through more wires than I thought was possible. He was very loving though which lead me on a hunt for a dog trainer! Lori texted me and answered all my questions as fast as she could while running a business. We went to her house and met with her when we dropped Norbert, our one year old dog, off. She made promises to us, and frankly, I didn't think it would be possible to turn this destructive dog around. A few weeks later - she gave us a call and said it was time for Norbert to come home. We met her outside and she got Norbert out of her car (yes - she transports!!) He didn't jump, he didn't pull, and I thought, "Anyone can be good for a few minutes." She came inside for our "Train the Human Time." She kind of had to laugh at me as she trained me - but I think she left with a little confidence in me. I eventually got my dog to listen as well as he did to Lori. She left - and he still listened! He is a very good dog now that we can take into public, and more importantly, not worry about him being around our toddler.
Justine trained a service dog for my husband who suffers from TBI and PTSD. She worked long and hard training the dog to ensure that his needs would be met. She spent 2 weeks one on one with Kyle and the dog to make sure that they were perfectly capable of transitioning into their new companionship smoothly. Justine exercised the upmost patience in working with Kyle, not taking lightly his past experiences that most overlook. Justine's motivation and compassion are inspirational. She goes above and beyond in everything she does. Her efforts were life changing. I would recommend her training services to anyone in need.
Jana and her team are very professional. My dog loves them, he's always happy to be back home but I never worry when they have him! I love the detailed notes they leave of what they did w/ my dog. I've referred one person to they already and I will continue to refer. Thanks @ Home Pet Care!!!!!
Darci came over to my home to do some training in my dog’s environment to address some specific things I wanted to work on. Not only was she wonderful with my dog, she explained things to me to ensure I could continue working on the training in the days to come. I would highly recommend Darci for any training needs - she is patient, knowledgeable and (most important to me) gentle with my pup! :-)
Sally was very nice to work with and my dog Lucy enjoyed working with her too. Lucy liked to jump up a lot and Sally taught us techniques that showed results right away. She had great tips and suggestions on how to care for her. We plan to hire Sally if Lucy ever needs care while we are out of town.
I recently had the opportunity to work with Shahar from Four Winds Dog Training. What a tremendous experience both for me and my dog. I have never worked with a dog trainer before so I wasn't sure what to expect. I provided some basic information about what I was looking for and Shahar responded that she could deliver the service I needed. She arrived promptly and ready to start training right away. She was very polite, knowledgable, and patient. My Bassett Hound tends to be timid around new people so I wasn't sure how he would react to a trainer. It took less than ten minutes after meeting Homer for Shahar to peak his interest. Watching her interact with Homer in such a gentle but confident way, explaining to me every movement she was making and why was very interesting. Homer responded in no time. I was very impressed. It was the exact opposite of what I might have expected from Homer given his introduction to strangers in the past. I learned a great deal from the experience. I highly recommend giving Four Winds a try.
I heard about Cameron through friends. I was very emotional wondering if I may need to give up my Great Pyrenees. I could not get him to obey commands. He had run away and I almost lost him. I took him to see Cameron. Cameron listened to my issues and totally understood. He was very caring and knowledgeable about my situation. He taught me how to treat my dog in a way that made him want to please me. His technique is kind, firm and effective. He really knows and understands dogs. I highly recommend Cameron for anyone who truly wants the best for their pets.

I am a certified dog trainer, and I use only positive training methods. The clicker/reward is a great fun way to work with a dog! Being a good leader versus using dominance or pack leader is more productive and teachable. I also have a dog rescue and work with problems that rescues sometimes bring with them. I am a support system during any training process.
Denise is one of the most dedicated professional trainers I have ever had the privilege of working with. She has helped me take my dog to levels I never thought were possible! I look forward to working with her in the future and seeing just how far and amazing my dog will become with her guidance and superior knowledge.
Loved them. Staff was friendly, asked great question and my dog looked perfect. I will be using them again!
