We found out about Ryan when researching Northern VA dog trainers. We had a 6 month old German Shepherd and didn't know where to turn. To complicate things I was trying to also groom him to be a working dog which requires excellent obedience. After dropping a couple of hundred on a group class at Petco I feel we barely scratched the surface let alone had an obedient dog. Ryan offered exactly what we wanted. A reasonable intensive in-home solution that incorporated the whole family. Ryan was able to see how he interacts at home, on walks and we even go into public areas to increase socialization. After 6 weeks we have seen a dramatic change. K9 Sigmund is now even more prepared to start his career as a K9 SAR member thanks to Ryan.

I had a great experience working with Mr. Haywood he does more than train dogs but the owner as well. My dog Rocko was dog aggressive because of fear. But in less that 3 classes in he was better! He was sitting next to dogs and he has never done that not even as a puppy. This is worth the money and the time. If you do what Mr. Haywood says your dog will come out better!

Cecilia is a great dog trainer. We usually meet at a local park where there are lots of distractions. Through her great ideas in dog training I got my Rally Novice Title and I owe it to her. The way that Cecilia goes above and beyond is that she will send you and email letting you know what she noticed in class and what you should work on. She is constantly researching new ideas of how to train dogs which I am impressed by!! There is nothing she could do better with, she is awesome!! Thank you Cecilia!!

Jennifer was absolutely phenomenal! She showed up a little early and was very energetic and very eager to share the experience of training our dog!! At first my girlfriend and I were a little nervous about our Pitbull and his food guarding and aggression towards resource guarding! Jennifer discussed many things with my via Phone and in person and even demonstrated immediate obedience changes to our dog in just under 20 minutes!! We were blown away at how easy it is to train dogs, she went over lots of techniques and training tips with us and had our dog staying, walking, coming and touching on command in just under 30 minutes of being in our home!! HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend her for any home visit or any dog training needs! - Billy Campbell

Christine has been a wonderful help and great trainer! We adopted our dog from a shelter and we needed help with his confidence and fearfulness. We were not sure about his history and we wanted to make sure we were not part of the problem. Christine has helped us get better at idenitifying the body language and understanding the behavior of our dog. We really like the positive reinforcement used with the clicker training and our puppy responds great to it. We also appreciate how she is always available when you need her with something you may not be sure of. She has provided a wealth of reading material and she knows what material you need based on your dog. We would definitely recommend her to a friend.

I love animals especially dogs. I have a red-nosed bulldog that is still a puppy. I work in the mornings or the afternoons. Text or call me.
