Incredibly knowledgeable, immediately effective, we started noticing results in our dog's behavior the next day, and after only 1 lesson. Very down to earth and great rapport with dogs (and people)! Thanks Lauren, we'll be scheduling more lessons soon.

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.

Debi is by far the most trustworthyhy care giver I know. I've had the honor of knowing Debi for years and I can't say enough amazing things about her. You don't come across people like this very often, so when I say it's an honor, I truly mean that will all of my heart. I've known Debi as an animal control officer as well, and I'll just say you don't come across ACO's like her at all!!!! I worked in the veterinary field for 8 years, so trust me when I say that. She will treat your pet as if they were her own and nothing less! I love Debi and respect her to the fullest!

Nancy was very informative and started the training immediately while explaining the concepts and methodology of Bark Busters. During the first visit, Nancy took us through and practiced with us the techniques needed to train our dog effectively. We have seen an immediate change in our dog’s behavior. We are looking forward to our future training sessions.

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.

Tena is amazing! I had two badly behaved dogs that needed training. Tena helped me set up a list of behavioral goals for my dogs. She then provided a detailed training schedule to help accomplish those goals. After just a few weeks of weekly training sessions, my dogs can now sit, lie down, stay, and “leave it” on command. They now walk on a leash without pulling – something I was unable to accomplish on my own. Tena is affordable, knowledgeable, patient, and dependable. She teaches you how to train your dog so that you can practice commands on your own. I highly recommend Tena for any dog training needs. Cyndi L.

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.

Darlene is our Fairy Dog Mother. We had worked with several other trainers and still had issues with our two labs. We first did a walk clinic and were so impressed with the results we did a two week board & train with Darlene and I highly recommend her. She truly understands dog behavior and is exceptionally skilled at training both dogs and their humans. I couldn't be happier with the results she delivered. Even after training she is available for consultation & coaching to help us through our challenges. She helped us overcome leash aggression & pulling, extreme anxiety, fear of narrow spaces & excessive barking among other things. We now have a peaceful home with well behaved dogs and walks are a pleasure. We travel with them and can take them anywhere and know that they will behave. Darlene WILL be the last trainer you will need!

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!

We have two terriers, ages 4 and 5. We adopted both animals well into their adulthood, and neither had any training. We put up with the accidents in the house, the nipping, and the complete lack of obedience for far too long because we wanted our new additions to settle in before we started correcting their behavior. Well, that is where Damon came in. He assured us that our dogs could behave AND go to the bathroom outside. That they were not the worlds worst (although cutest) dogs, but actually good dogs! What? My dogs can be trained? I was a little skeptical. Initially, we signed up for a private session. We love our dogs, but surely he would change his mind when he met them. Our dogs interacted with Damon wonderfully. They are a little much at times, and he knew exactly how to handle them to get them to calm down or play. We worked on some potty training techniques and talked about the format of his training class. Sure enough, we enrolled our dogs into a six week beginner course and they really responded. They enjoyed going to the park once a week, interacting with other dogs and humans, and best of all, working for food! Never in a million years did I think my dog would "sit" on command. Now they sit, wait, lay down, touch, and leave it! AND THEY POTTY OUTSIDE. I know these things may seem extremely basic to some people, but I honestly didn't think my dogs could be trained - not even to sit. I know some of you out there have dogs like mine. I do want to say, Damon only provides the tools. If you do not reinforce the expected behavior at home then your dogs will not respond. Our dogs were ready to work every Saturday morning, but not so much when we got home. Once we started enforcing those expected behaviors we got much better results. Be prepared to put in just as much work as your pup. I highly recommend Damon! Can't wait to enroll our dogs in more advanced training!
