Sal is awesome! he is a dog whisperer. after only one training session my pup was already improving. he gave me advice on how to pick better quality food/treats for my furry friends, which was really helpful. he really has so much love and knowledge that made working with him so pleasant. another thing that i loved is that he encourages positive, happy training that allows you to bond even more with your pup. i noticed how much even my pup loved him, definitely recommended!!

Jay was great with my dog, Zooey! He was able to teach her different tasks and explain to me what exactly he was doing (and also gave written explanations). He was always on time and would often give us a little extra time during sessions. Since the training Zooey has been listening more to myself and my family - thank you so much for the excellent training!

Joan is a kind and loving person, and brings these qualities to her superb dog training. She helped Sidney Cha-Cha, our miniature poodle pup, with anxiety and incessant barking. We are grateful for her assistance, and our dogs will miss her presence in our home. Highly recommended!

Wonderful experience with Suzanne who has worked beautifully with our 10 month old dog and was able to give us lots of practical advice to train the dog. Suzannne was also very good with the children, helping them understand their role in the dog's training.

Words can't describe how much Ariana means to us. After rescuing a 72lb AmStaff with behavioral issues, we asked Ariana to help guide us through training our sweet, strong boy. Ariana's tireless patience, humor and knowledge made training our dog a fun, bonding experience instead of a stressful one. Her commitment to ensuring our collective success and a healthy, happy dog was evident in every hour she spent with us. Work with Ariana- she is a joy who also knows her dog training stuff!

Andrew was excellent! He is very relaxed and clear with instructions, and knew just how to get my dog, Pippin, to love him from the first moment they met. I'd done some training on my own with Pippin, but we reached a road block where I wasn't sure how to continue to make progress with him. Andrew helped break the steps down to be really manageable, and with some consistent homework on my part, we made huge leaps! Where we started: Pippin knew a few commands like sit and lay down while in the house, but whenever there were new people, other dogs or distractions, he would get hyperactive and wouldn't listen at all... On walks, most of the time it was like he didn't even realize I was there, and it was almost impossible to catch his attention. Where we ended up after training with Andrew: Pippin is now MUCH more polite when greeting people and other dogs, walks calmly outside and is a great listener! Even friends and family members have commented on how calm, relaxed and obedient he has become! I'm thrilled that by using the techniques we covered with Andrew, Pippin and I have developed a stronger bond and healthier habits that will ultimately keep him safer on our outings. Thanks, Andrew!!

I have a 12 week old French Bulldog pup that I have had now for 3 weeks. I did not know where to start in regards to training and Karin definitely gave my husband and I a good foundation to begin and a lot of pointers. She took her time with us and our puppy. We felt very comfortable having her in our home. I highly recommend her.

Alice is the real deal! During our first meeting, we discussed all the members of the household (pets & humans), from diets, behavior, issues, schedules, to activities, grooming, and much more. We were able to resolve basic commands and for the first time, we were able to master the walk with both pets, all during the first visit. Needless to say, I booked more sessions. I can't wait to see the improvements we will make as a pack over the next few weeks! Thank you, Alice & RufF lOve dOg traiNIng :) From Dylan, Omie and their newly trained (very happy) humans. xoxo

Bruce has been very patient and informative. He has helped me decide whether a service dog was right for me by providing the crucial information that I couldn't find online. The guidance has been extremely reassuring. I look forward to the process of finding and training a dog with Bruce.

I have two dogs, a fox hound and a weimeraner. The two dogs would violently fight with each other, which was very scarey indeed. The weimeraner was impossible for me to walk on the leash and he had separation anxiety. Rick assessed these issues right away! Within the first session, I was able to handle walking my dog, with pleasure. Then he worked on the aggression issue and it's been a year since the training and there has not been one fight between them. Also, the weimeraner is able to spend extended periods of time alone without issue now. If you are looking for a trainer, Rick is, without question, the best out there.

My 8 month old shar pei was a good dog. Smart too but true to his breed he was stubborn!! I had tried other trainers who helped but he needed more. Hiring JOLEAN at k9 advanced was the best choice I made!! She worked wonders w my dog and he truly tested her expertise and skill!! He was a true challenge for her but I now have a well trained dog and friend. Jolean was dedicated and determined that he be the dog I hoped he would be. I am very thankful to Jolean and highly recommend her. She far exceeded my expectations.

Truly fantastic and unique dog training experience. Chelsea had so much patience and genuine interest as I spoke with her (endlessly, on multiple occasions) about all of my concerns about my 11-year old adopted Shiba mix who grew up as a street dog in China. Gingko has not been an easy dog for me to deal with, but Chelsea has helped me not only manage but understand her barking and snapping behaviors. She's not just interested in obedience - she wants to help create a symbiotic relationship between you and your dog, so that each of you are happy and safe. I always imagined training to be just lots of clicker-treat-clicker-treat stuff (doesn't work with Gingko, who thinks treats are a trap). But Chelsea's full of clever, practical, and easy solutions that prevent unwanted behaviors from happening in the first place. Can't recommend her highly enough.

Working with Faryn was great. Fenway loved her and listened! She did well at training not only the dog but my husband and me!!! She was clear on her instructions, consistent and helped Fenway understand the basic commands. Faryn is very professional and at the same time is warm and engaging. Her methods for training Fenway worked and her love of animals was very obvious. I would highly recommend her. Thanks Faryn!!!

I adopted a one year old lab –pit mix a month ago. Soon after I brought him home-I realized that he is not really house broken and loves to chew on everything. I did some research on dog trainers in my area and man- they are pricey. Came across Anastasia’s profile -prices seemed fair plus looked like she was offering more than just an obedience training for the same price. I am so happy we hired her. Sammy learned how settle and get in into his crate with no fuss in a matter of few minutes on a first session, we also established a few house rules and thanks to her recommendation for food – Sammy’s coat improved and poop too. Thank you Anastasia!
