Our pup is only 6 was old and didn’t have interaction with her mother & limited exposure to litter mates for only the first 3 weeks: Lauren brought her 9mo old pup to interact as well as talk about the training and philosophy, etc. It was really great to see our Storm learning to be a dog, and good behavior as a dog right away. My husband and I were sold and went for the full training package :)
Butch did a great job with our dog Harley she was a very aggressive dog before and had some behavior issues that needed to be corrected and butch did a great job helping her I would recommend this place to anyone!
After the first session, there was a huge improvement in my dogs behavior, and the instructions were easy to follow and continue after the instructor left the house.
Everything about Lynette is amazing. She treats my dogs like her own and has done amazing things with their behavior. I'm so happy I found her.
Nicole is an outstanding dog trainer! When we adopted two shelter dogs of different ages two months ago, we didn't realize what we were getting ourselves into! We decided to bring Nicole in to help refine our dog's behaviors and help them settle into their new home quickly. Nicole's approach is both gentle and consistent. She also provided great tips along the way for things we can do going forward as our dogs' training becomes more advanced. Communication was always clear and everything went smoothly from beginning to end. All of us, dogs included, miss seeing her every weekend. She was truly a joy to work with! We highly recommend Nicole to all of our family and friends, and the minute we decide our dogs are ready for more advanced training, Nicole is who we will call! Thank You NICOLE!!! :-)
Working with Howard was a great experience. Anyone looking for a caring, compassionate but firm animal lover will find it in him. He has taught us how to be alphas in our home and earn the respect of our 3 furry pets. They are all challenging in their own way but working with Howard has taught us how to read each one and to communicate effectively with them.
Stephanie is a wonderful dog trainer! She helps me train my 4 month old puppy. She is very knowledgeable of dog behavior in general, and breed specific behavior, too. She teaches only positive reinforcement training techniques and is very sweet with my pup. Lola loves her, too!
We had a very good and interactive first meeting, where we learned some valuable information and techniques that immediately began improving our dog’s behavior.
made our Irish wolfhound a manageable and more enjoyable companion and gave us clear guidance on how to continue improving the dog;s behavior, as well as the offer of future assistance.
Wanda was wonderful with my 2 year old previously neglected foster dog and was able to teach me some very simple techniques to start training him. After one session there was already a marked difference in his behavior. I am no longer as stressed on the what or how to train him. She is prepared with treats and how to start. And she emailed me further instructions on how to work with him until our next session. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. Before her help, he was too antsy to pay attention, and I had no way to reach him. Now he makes eye contact and enjoys our training sessions.
Pamela did amazing with our dog. She was very good at explaining our dogs behavior and how to correct it. We were able to conquer basic commands and break his jumping habit. She was a pleasure to work with and very flexible with our schedule.
My dog Bruno is a young rowdy pup, very smart but also very strong willed. After attempting to watch You Tube videos and train him myself, it seemed like I was getting nowhere. I was at my wits end and discouraged. I needed serious help! I brought my Bruno to Canine perceptions after reading good reviews elsewhere and needing help with his behaviors. He went through the 6 week off leash program and graduated yesterday. 1st, I'm very happy to have him home for Christmas but the change is so noticeable! I knew he would be super excited to be home and expected bad behaviors once he left. Only one day, but the change is extreme. The Staff of Canine perceptions returned my baby not only well cared for, but well mannered! The training they gave me put everything into perspective and gave me the understanding I needed to continue Bruno's training. I could not begin to explain how grateful I am to them.
Elizabeth is such a blessing; I cannot say enough great things about her. I recently adopted a puppy, as a first time dog owner, and made the BEST decision to work with her every step of the way. She helped me since before I even adopted my puppy - she helped me find the best puppy for me and prepare my house to bring her home. After our first obedience training session, the puppy had already learned (among other things) how to sit!!! She is helping me socialize the puppy with my cats who have never been around dogs, and has taught me so much about understanding my cats behavior and body language that I had no idea about. Elizabeth is always available to answer any questions I have and is always willing to help. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone and everyone!!
Arlene Ruiz was very pet friendly. My 3 cats were attentive to her right away on their first meeting. Everything was well taken care of.
Karen has been taking care of my three cats and one dog for years. She is better than outstanding - lets my cats out to play in the backyard where they can't escape and then returns to let them back in. She brushes them, feeds them, takes care of the litter box. My sweet dog is a special needs dog; Karen loves Cali and takes extra special care of her. Karen is my neighbor and often just comes over and takes Cali for a walk or just checks on the animals even when I am in town. Does Karen go above and beyond? Absolutely! Karen couldn't do better as she is already the best!
Makenzie has watched my little shih tzu while I have gone away for work or vacation and he has never complained. hehe! But seriously he seems to love it and she always updates me with photos and videos of all the funny and adorable things he does that I have missed. She has a true love for all animals and treats them all like her own.

I'm an owner of two dogs and two cats, and I love pretty much any furry friend instantly. I really enjoy being around animals and being outdoors. I'm willing to help with whatever possible when it comes to pets, such as walking, sitting, some personal training and exercising.
