Learning 4 Life Dog Training
We have a 4 year old German Shepherd Dog, Lila, that is a perpetual puppy--extremely high energy and playful. We were having a lot of issues while out walking or hiking with her because of constant pulling and leash reactivity around other dogs. We found Julie and were immediately impressed with her resume of handling large dogs (Malamutes) and training them through positive reinforcement. Julie has been full of valuable tips and strategies that have focused on positive reinforcement, repetition, and the gradual increase of distractions when training. After several sessions and lots of practice in the neighborhood, we are really starting to see results. Taking Lila out for a stroll is now much more pleasant and manageable. We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Julie and would absolutely recommend her!

Riverside Dog Training
Ada was prompt in responding to my initial request for dog trainers near my home and after discussing what needs to be accomplished explained what she believed would be necessary and how much it would cost giving me the opportunity to talk it over with my daughter (the dog's real owner) who will get back with me tomorrow about the degree of commitment to help pay for the service. Ada kindly accepted the delay and pleasantly offered the suggestion that if it didn't work out just now she would be happy to help whenever we were ready. So, I already know we are going to hire her because she is so flexible and considerate regarding our circumstances and needs.

Sylvia's K-9 Services
Sylvia is a true dog whisperer and she has saved our family many times. The first time I was almost in tears because my puppies were fighting all the time and I was afraid I might have to re-home one of them. She calmly told me that all I needed to do was learn how to be the pack leader. She was right! Once the dogs knew my husband and I were in charge, they no longer fought each other for dominance. The next time was when my husband was away in the army and I became too sick to take care of my dogs. My dogs are my babies and I'm so grateful that Sylvia was there to watch over them. She took care of them as if they were her own until I got better and my husband came home. They were so happy and healthy and vibrant when we picked them up. Sylvia has also taught me how to do service dog training with my dog, Ike. Sylvia loves all creatures, human or animal, and has a big heart. She especially reaches out to help veterans and the disabled. There is no one else I would trust more with my family, you can trust her with yours.

Martha's Canine, Feline & All Creature Counseling
We called Martha because our dogs are dog aggressive. Martha worked with both of our dogs with instant results, teaching us how to walk them without pulling on the leash and to ignore the distraction of other barking or aggressive dogs. Everything was tape recorded for us to replay, should we forget. Our Akita has had a "dangerous dog" declaration and she helped us by giving us the name of an animal lawyer, and a reputable person who can give us an evaluation of our dog.
