Nico is absolutely incredible. My dog has come so far and truly enjoys his training. I used to pull my hair out over my dogs behavior, but since Nico came along my dog is patient, focused, and always eager to learn something new. I will definitely be continuing to advanced training with Nico.
Janice has an excellent knowledge of dogs and their behavior. My barkers were quickly calmed by her gentle manner, and the most anxious pups were eating out of her hand and doing tricks at her request within the one visit. Changing the behavior of the humans in the household will take a bit longer, but we expect, with consistency of our new system, to be able to improve the behavior of the pack.
Steve was so excellent. He came out on extremely short notice and spent hours with me and my dog, going over not just what to do to train her but why each training tool/technique was important for my dog's safety and wellbeing, as well as the whole family and neighborhood. I would never have realized how many behaviors I was exhibiting that were giving my dog the wrong message, and thanks to Steve we are well on our way to a happier and calmer doggie life! I feel confident that I know how to handle my dog's behavior, and better yet I know how to behave around her to make sure she knows she is safe and cared for. I am so grateful.
Reliable, shows up when she says every time. Hard to say dog interaction since we are not home when she walks the dogs. Will continue to use her.
Marion is very knowledge in her skills. She is always very responsive to me and we make our schedules work. You can tell she loves her job and does great work with my dog.
Within one visit there was a significant positive change in my dog's behavior. I know there is still work to do, however, this small change has made a big difference in our lives. I look forward to learning more how to train my dog.
Jordan Is AMAZING!! We had our little boy "Spirit" groomed 4 days ago and he is like a BRAND NEW KITTY NOW!! So, of course, Spirit looks great. And, In fact, we have never seen him look better...ever. Jordan took care of EVERYTHING that one could possibly want done with grooming a cat. Therefore, her expertise in the area of grooming, is quite-evidently-obvious!! HOWEVER, there is more than that, that goes along with "Jordan's Touch"...much, much, more. Jordan has a way with animals, that is very, special. She has a gift. After being groomed by Jordan, our little Spirit has a brand new confidence about himself and his surroundings; He is vastly more energetic; And, he clearly has an overall better sense of well-being and happiness with life....all after being groomed by Jordan. My wife and I really can't get over it. We are incredibly happy with our entire experience!!! We both, HIGHLY RECOMMEND JORDAN for any and all of your " Little Baby's" grooming needs. Thank You for Reading, Have a Wonderful Day, Danny and Sharon Holbrook and Family-
Heather accomplished more in 3 sessions than previous dog trainers who spent much, much more time, but were less knowledgeable about how to effectively handle my dog's behavioral problems. She went directly to the problem behavior and after each session had produced lasting results. Everyone says my dog is like a whole different dog while maintaining his great enthusiasm for being alive. Positive training and rewards all the way. I would highly recommend her services. She doesn't just talk, she delivers.
Only had one session so far and we are highly impressed! We learned about our puppy and saw improvements during the first hour. We are excited to continue with our "homework" and look forward to our next session with her.
Training my dog with DeNovo Canine was a wonderful experience. Kayla makes everything so easy and simple, even for first time owners like us, and now my dog listens to every command. We get compliments everywhere we go about our dogs behavior and could not be more thrilled with our results!
Ryan is an excellent trainer. During the training sessions Ryan was extremely informative. He is very well educated in dog behavior and how to correct problems. Also Ryan sets rules for you and your pet to follow for a lifetime. My dog is very well behaved with people in and out of the home thanks to Ryan's expertise.
Shannon is very experienced in dogs whom have a nervousness behavior.
Working with Bridget has been an amazing learning experience for myself (as a dog owner & handler) and my dogs. She was able to identify and teach me how to help them be calmer and more integrated as a pack. She also pointed out subtle differences in the dog's behavior that could lead to bigger problems in the future, helping me to address issues quicker and more effectively. Bridget made it possible for me to work with additional dogs in my house as well as become a more confident dog handler for other dogs. She has the experience and knowledge to help you help your dog(s) become one of the family. I do highly recommend Bridget based on my experience working directly with her for any dog behavior issue. I have seen the positive results from her consultation, training and knowledge.
Great experience working with Mr. B! Patient with both my dog and myself, collaborative and professional. Highly recommend!
I have known Lynette for over 20 years, and have never met or known anyone as kind and loving. She treats every animal with great love and tenderness. After watching her with her dogs-I finally decided 10 years ago to get my own dog, one of the best decisions ever!!!! If you are fortunate enough to have her take care of your baby(I mean pet), count yourself as one of the lucky ones.
Nikki has the highest standards for pet care and we wouldn't trust anyone else to take care of our cats. We have called her on multiple occasions when we have been concerned about our animals well being and her advice has always been extremely helpful. She is just the best!!!
Louise is very good with animals. She treats the animals with the greatest care and kindness! There are no concerns when Louise is involved.
My dog responded very well to techniques at Spring Canine Academy

Good day, and thank you for your interest in my assistance. I am a certified Behaviorist BCBA, and I have my behavior license through the State of Pennsylvania. I have the natural ability to work with and communicate with all animals. My services are diagnostic and problem solving of challenging behaviors. I prefer to meet in the natural environment in order to find out what is triggering the concerning behaviors. I have years of experience, and my true affection for animals makes me a great clinician. All breeds are welcome! I love them all.
Allow your family to have that well-behaved yet strictly trained dog. Dogs will listen to all of your commands as fast as you can sign by hand motion or orally command your family companion. For those of us who need a guard dog as well as a great family companion, you have come to the right place. German commands and English commands are available, while in the same hands be people, kid and animal friendly. Come and see your best friend and family companion transform!
