Sylvia came over, to give us advice on our 4 month old Yorkie/Havanese pup - Yoda, who is a handful. She answered all our queries and concerns, spent time teaching us commands for Yoda as well as training Yoda to follow them. We were impressed with how well she handled Yoda and taught him to respond. She is very informative, knowledgeable, patient and passionate about what she does. We like the fact that Sylvia came home to train Yoda in his home environment. We also like the fact that she available via a phone call and can be contacted anytime we have any concerns. We recommend her if you are looking for a good dog trainer. We will definitely be using her for our next dog training session.Thanks Sylvia for easing our minds. Yoda is already showing signs of improvement.

I had the opportunity to officially meet Sylvia for our first dog training session and was blown away by how much she was able to help me with my rescue dog, Buttercup, in just 60 minutes!! She is incredibly knowledgeable about animals, very patient, and offers a hands-on approach that allowed me to become comfortable with her recommended dog commands. It honestly feels like Buttercup is a brand new dog and I'm already seeing significant improvements in her behavior! Sylvia is a miracle worker and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent dog trainer. Not only that but her rates are super affordable and she is very flexible about coming to your home.

Martha is a very intuitive, miracle worker!! I adopted a 1-year old rescue a year ago, so sweet and what seemed a perfect fit. After a couple of weeks, she woke up and was a holy terror - a nightmare to walk, lunging, barking and disturbing the neighbors. I did some private lessons, and enrolled in a highly regarded school specializing in positive dog training. I had a "reactive" dog and everything seemed to set her off. The teachers were very nice, but after hundreds of dollars and several sessions of Growly Dog, and BAT Clinic, there was only the very slightest improvement. I still had to plan my walks, avoiding all of the triggers...which was pretty much everything. The whole business was exhausting. Finally, I called Martha :>) She spent hours with us, explaining what was going on with my sweet girl, what we were doing right and what wasn't working...and then we took to the street. She spoke with my neighbor explaining my dogs behavior and let him know it was all going to be a thing of the past. She visited the other dogs on the street, the kids, a bicyclist, crows, squirrels...my dog shook like a leaf, but eventually calmed down. I saw my dog transform right in front of my eyes, becoming happy and relaxed and walking pretty. Two days later, I am reaping the benefits of Martha's visit. Still a work in process, but I have enjoyed our walks, and I feel free to walk where I choose. We were able to quietly walk near a small dog tonight that has always been on the receiving end of my dogs bark. We were both happy. Thank you Martha!!

Martha is impressive. She came to our home and spent three hours helping us train our six-month old puppy with amazing results. She was well prepared, extremely patient, and anxious to address all our concerns. Martha's experience with dog training is evident. She was very helpful in showing us how to have our puppy and two older cats live in peace. You can't go wrong with Martha. She is a true professional and her love of animals is apparent.

Martha was intuitive, kind and knowledgable. My pup is a work in progress, but she gave me the tools and encouragement to believe that our problems are solveable and that things aren't as bad as I had thought. I needed as much training as my dog did and look forward to our mutual progress and peace of mind.

I have been in the veterinary field for more than 20 years but I've never trained a dog. Without Jenn's help I would be lost! I own two Belgian Malinois under the age of 2 and they are a handful!Jenn's skilled guidance has been detrimental in the formation of obedient owner and obedient dogs!

Leashed Seattle is an excellent dog walking service. Robert comes to my apartment in Kirkland and walks my dog for 30 minutes. Sometimes I pay a bit more and her takes her to an off leash dog park for an hour. Robert is really easy to reach by cell and email. He always fits us into the schedule, even when I make changes the day before. The best part of his service, and probably what sets Leashed Seattle apart from others is the email I get after every walk/park session. It includes a map of distance covered, photos of the dog in action and customized notes. So happy I found them! There's also a discount if you buy a block of walks in advance.

I hardly trust my dog with family, so finding a dog walker was bound to be a challenge. But Leashed Seattle stepped up to that challenge. Not only do they deal with my hyper boxer, but I can tell by the pictures they send me that they enjoy every minute they spend with her. Life is easier when you know your dog is in amazing hands while you're at work. Highly recommend!

I love working with Leashed Seattle, from day one they have been uber professional and you can right away tell they will care for your pup. They are super willing to accommodate any special requests. I am so happy that I ditched Wag (app) for a more personalized approach. I get an email every day with GPS updates of what my dog did for the day as well as some nice pics.

Cindy was on time, and very friendly. She also was very flexible with times and days that worked best for us as a family. She not only provided training for the dogs, but also provided knowledge to us about how the mind of a dog works, and how to receive the best relationship with your dog as possible. She provided many different environments for our dog to encounter situations, and continually made sure we felt comfortable in the training. I would recommend Cindy with One-On-One Dog Training to anyone who would like an extremely friendly, flexible, and outstanding trainer for you and dog!

Cindy Wilson is an excellent dog trainer. She even trained my dog to ring the bill to let me know when he wants to go out. I still call her till this day when I have dog training questions. Even though she's now in another state. I highly recommend her services.

We took our 18 month old put bull for training. Anne was very informative and helpful gave my wife and I tons of handouts to help us to continue our training at home between lessons and to continue now. Rusty when he first started his training couldn't even see a dog without getting anxious and start barking and lunging. Now after 4 weeks he will allow dogs to walk by withing about 6 feet without him even caring and we actually took him camping over labor day and the campsite on both sides of us had dogs and he didn't have one outburst. Also rusty now walks nice on a leash with us. If your dog as any behavioral issues or just want to add more training to your dog's repertoire than I highly suggest Anne. You won't find anyone more knowledgeable patient and also affordable than her. Thank you again Anne or and Kirby for putting up with Rusty'a nonsense

Had an evaluation/training with my new dog I adopted from pet rescue. Nico had some possession issues with food dish and toys that we worked on. The trainer gave me good instructions on trust building and training specifics that would work with my dog. Also got additional tips that have helped in other aspects.

We loved our dog training sessions! It was very personal as there are never more than 4 dogs per session. Our's only had 2. I like Ann's positive training method. I've been through training before and still learned new ways to do things. It was very beneficial!

Miss Anderson is very professional. Did a quick assessment of my dog after a 30 minute phone call with me. She knew exactly what I wanted and started training within 2 days. After 2 days with her my boy was feeling abandoned by me and she immediately brought him home and set a training schedule up for me to continue with him at home. She will take him back for a few days when he is feeling more comfortable. I am very happy so far and trust her completely

I've known Ana for several years. She helped me so much with my dog and did my dog's service training. You will not find a more capable trainer for either animals or humans. I recently watched her break up what was going to be a dog fight while talking to a client on the telephone without hesitation and while maintaining her conversation with the client. We are still laughing about that.

Julie's knowledge and expertise were evident from the clear instructions she provided to me and the way she interacted with my Husky-Mal mix, Koda. Koda would go crazy whenever she encountered other dogs when we took our walks, so I sought Julie's help in finding ways to deal with those situations, as well as ways to help introduce her to known friendly dogs. She brought her dogs (Malamutes) to assess Koda's reactivity and we worked on exercises to divert her attention and to gradually approach and greet her dog in a more controlled manner. She also showed me how to prevent Koda from jumping up when greeting people and tips on training her to greet people politely. I've been practicing what I learned with Koda and her behavior has definitely improved. I'd recommend Julie/Learning 4 Life Dog Training to anyone looking for training and practical advice using positive reinforcement.

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!

Jacqui was asked to jump into a very difficult situation and she was absolutely marvelous. I watched Jacqui train four dogs for a commercial shoot, in which, she had very little time to prepare and time was of the essence. It was a complete success! Jacqui has a confident demeanor and knows how to work with animals proficiently. With over 6 years of experience, I can't think of a better trainer for our commercial shoot. Jacqui is kind and respectful and was the lynchpin in ensuring the success of our shoot and ultimately our commercial spot. We could not have done it without her. If you need your dog trained, call her right now! You will not be disappointed. Thank you, Jacqui for all of your help! I will be calling you again, when my director tells me that our talent is a bunch of pooches. You rock!

I work with Denise at Bark & Ride, I also board my 2 dogs with her when I am out of town. My dogs & all the dogs she cares for LOVE her, I trust her implicitly with my dogs, she has double gates at the entrance, a very large play yard (she picks up poop several times a day), the dogs are brought inside a smaller yard next to the house at night, where they can go inside the heated sleeping quarters if they choose. I pick up & take 10 -12 of her dogs to the dog park twice a week, I work closely with all of her clients & they trust her absolutely. The only negative feedback I have ever heard was from a helper that was let go.

Denise and Pam are fantastic! My dog loves them, she comes home exhausted everytime she's with them. They are very professional and friendly. They care about your dog and entire family! They rinse my dog and dry her off when she is dirty and wet and give her a snack of her food before they go. I am so happy I found them and would highly recommend them to anyone.

I highly recommend the Pawsitive Packleader whether you are getting a puppy, having issues with an older dog, or need guidance for whatever stage your dog is in. They are incredibly committed and are in your corner when you are their client. Prescott helped train my dog when he was a puppy, and he and Richard keep coming up with new training and exercise ideas as he moves into adulthood. They also referred me to an nutritionist (Patti) who was helpful as I looked towards an overwhelming amount of dietary choices for my dog.

Galahad worships Prescott and I adore my Golden Galahad. To see my puppy obey every one of Prescott's commands, given so quietly and with such gentle authority, is so reassuring. Prescott helps my pup feel relaxed and secure. I have learned so much from Prescott and I have tried to mirror his methods. Now Galahad and I have a perfect relationship and I credit Prescott for making what I thought was a well trained dog into the best companion ever. Thanks Prescott, you are the best!!!
