Very pleased with Dawn's help. She thoroughly explained my dog's behavior and needs. I've learned the tools necessary to make positive changes for us. I have a dog I felt was aggressive is certain situations; Dawn helped me realize this behavior stemmed from fear and was a reaction to unknown environments. She gave me "homework" and explained each action and the intended reaction. Both Winnie and I are making positive changes everyday! Very reasonably priced, flexible scheduling, and you'll get great service. Very pleased! Highly recommend!
Shawn did a great job training us!! LoL... really Shawn knows her stuff. We just added a puppy to our family and Shawn came out to help with our older golden retriever Molly and the puppy Mabel. We needed to be retrained on how to walk Molly so she doesn't pull or get aggressive when other dogs pass us. This was especially important because we didn't want the puppy to pick up these bad habits. We didn't do a lot of training with the puppy as she is very timid. We discussed how to socialize Mabel more so she doesn't freak every time she sees a person. It was a great session and we got a lot of great tips! If we ever need training again we'll definitely call Shawn!
Very "down to earth" dog trainers. They use appropriate correction and positive reinforcement. Best of all, we could tell they really enjoyed our dogs
We got a puppy and were having a lot of potty training issues. Myke was able to put our minds at ease, as I was quickly coming to my wits end. He was very patient with our dog and showed us a lot of good training exercises to work with the puppy’s behavior and potty training problems. Even Myke agreed that our dog was a little stubborn on potty training but didn’t give up until we learned a strategy that worked for our pup. We are happy to report that our puppy is doing a lot better. Some in house accidents, due to her not fully undersnading how to get our attention to go outside, but she at least sits by the back door and tries to wait for us. Life has been difficult with a one year old toddler and a puppy but Myke helped us a lot and we just have to continue with his techniques and I’m sure this pup will be a cherished pet for many years!
I'm so impressed with Off Leask k9 and Alisa. My dog is not only so much more well behaved and obedient she is genuinely happier and more confident. Rarely do we see the dog aggression or reactivity that we used to see prior to taking these courses. Best yet- it's all OFF LEASH. Anyone can do it with trainers as excellent as these. I HIGHLY recommend them!
Very knowledgable and professional trainer. Explained what and, more importantly, the why of this natural dog behavior based training program. While not cheap, I think it is a very worthwhile investment for insuring my 8-week-old German Shepherd Sophie will be the great companion dog I want her to be. She and I have a trainer for life and we will have another visit when she is 6 months old.
We are expecting our first child in September. We have five dogs and heavily involved in rescue. It is our job as a parent and responsible dog owner to make sure our dogs are properly prepared to welcome a new child into our home and do so safely. We were referred to Jennifer by our normal dog trainer who we have used for 9 years. Not only has Jennifer been incredibly helpful via phone and email but the in home consultation was amazing. She has a lot of dog behavior knowledge and really impressed us with her calm behavior with our dogs (some of which are reactive to strangers). She has offered us lots of methods to prepare ourselves and our dogs for the new baby. She has also provided me (the mom) with advice on just dealing with the struggles/worries of pregnancy and mother hood. I strongly recommend her to anyone with pets that are expecting a child or already have children and dogs. I tell all of my friends about her and constantly post her link on facebook. If only more people would use her service and follow her advice, I think we would have less children bitten by dogs.
I worked with Alex for years, if you want the best bond and training for your dog, look no further.
We didn’t know what to expect since we were having both our Opie and Barney trained together. Stacy made us feel at ease right away. Stacy did an amazing job with our pups and us. Although, my wife and I were her biggest challenge. We now feel more in control of our pups behavior. We highly recommend Stacy and her methods on keeping your dog focused on you. We might get another doggie, just so we can have Stacy train them.
Emma was a dream come true!!! Very impressed with her service, she went above and beyond!! We only gave 2 days notice for a last minute weekend getaway and we're shocked that she could accommodate us! She is incredible! Treated my dog like she was her own! Even took her to the dog park! Sent us pics and videos so we knew she was in the best hands! Wow! She is amazing!!!
I work for Weber County Animal Services - and while Suzannah was in Utah, she would come in and help me with dogs that I was having trouble with. There were a couple of dogs that I couldn't get out of the kennel because they were too aggressive, and she would work with them through the kennel and get them to come out to us. There were a few that had behavioral issues and she would come in and walk me through how to work with them - whether it was dog-on-dog issues that she would show me how to handle and help fix, or ones that would just randomly turn on me and become aggressive. She would also bring in her wonderful dogs with her and help me dog test some of our dogs that I had a harder time reading and figuring out if they would be okay with other dogs. She also has shown me things that I can take home and use on my own personal pets to help them be better and happier. Thanks to her, so many dogs lives were saved at the shelter - because we were able to help them get to where they needed to be, rather than euthanized because we couldn't help them. She doesn't just help the dogs, but she also helps us as people. She never judges us, or makes us feel stupid for not knowing something. She is AMAZING, to say the least, at what she does. We definitely miss her here in Utah.
I have used other trainers for other pets and Alvin is among the best. He learns your dogs personality and teaches how to reward train. My dog, Desi, is a bit shy and slow to learn. He is doing things I never thought he would learn. Alvin is patient in training the person as well as the dog, since most problems are with the human not the dog. I highly recommend Quality Pet Solutions-I will probably use him for further training. I give 5 stars. Desi and Peggy P. 8/24/15
Paula has been caring for and training my dog for almost the last 3 years. I have a rescue dog that had so many issues including pulling on the leash, reactivity to other dogs, and he would not jump into the car or on a couch when invited to name a few. Paula worked with Joey and taught me how to continue the training at home. I now have a very well behaved dog and Joey has an Aunt for life. I can take him out to social events and I often get compliments on his good behavior. I don't know what we would have done without her!
Excellent dog trainer! My dog came back to me smarter than ever and he listens to all of my commands. Could not be happier! She is highly recommended!
I had the pleasure of working with Jen when we adopted a dog that was very aggressive toward our cats and created an unsafe environment for our family. Jen was wonderful! She came to our house and set up exercises for us to do between appointments. She was always available to respond to email and phone calls and supported me through the process. When we mutually came to the conclusion that the dog's prey drive was just too strong for our situation, she continued to be very helpful and honest, sharing expert advice and comfort while I found him a new home. I would highly recommend Jen. She is a tremendously caring and knowledgeable professional.
He did an excellent job and gave me great advice. Very, very helpful and spent a lot of time with me and my dog. Great service.
My 2-year-old Lab Mix Bailey is a pretty well-behaved pup, but it was time to start working on more advanced skills. Her recall was great inside the yard, but not so on the outside of that fence. As she got older we had to worry less about her bolting out the door, but we couldn't trust her to stay inside if the door wasn't immediately closed. As my husband and I planned to expand our family from fur babies to human babies we wanted to work on these skills, along with some others before the stress of bringing our first child into the world. I had such a hard time finding a trainer that uses science-based training methods so imagine my relief when I found Kassondra. With her help and plenty of consistency, Bailey's recall is getting much better though we're not ready for work outside the yard just yet. She waits at doors before going out and I no longer worry that she will scoot by us as we're coming in with a bag of groceries. Recently, I was able to open the door for guests while she waited on her bed. Kassondra has been absolutely wonderful to work with. I love that she helps you train the dog that you want, not the dog anyone thinks you should have. She asked me what kind of goals I had for Bailey and my family and worked to accomplish those goals. I recommend her to anyone looking for a dog trainer and I'm looking forward to working with her again.
Anna was wonderful with helping my dog not pull on the leash as well as, other behaviors which needed correction like jumping and crate training. My dog loved her and I would recommend her as your dog trainer!
I provide in-home training one dog/handler at a time! It's a training session not an hourly price. No treats or clickers, prong or shock, gentle leader type collars. Why yell at the dog when you can learn how to whisper. Don't drive all over town for 4-8 weeks to wait a turn in class. Save time, money, and gas.

My approach will save you well over a thousand dollars! Sending your dog away to work with a trainer can easily cost $2000 for simple obedience. The stress induced by sending your dog away to be trained with harsh, aversive techniques can cause unwanted psychological and physical symptoms. In my 20 years of experience, I have NEVER met a dog that was well behaved simply because he knew obedience commands. 100% of the adult dogs I see are well versed in obedience, yet they all have behavioral issues. If simple obedience is the answer, why do all of our dogs have these problems? Why pay for multiple visits when you can see real results in 1? Furthermore, why pay someone else to bond with your dog? My training will make you more knowledgeable, more confident and more successful than ever in effectively managing your dog’s behavior. My easy to apply methods will transform your dog into the dog you've always wanted. My goal is simple. I want to be the last dog trainer you'll ever need to hire for any reason!
