Sylvia walked into our home and immediately went to work. I would highly recommend to help with any of your dog training/behavior needs. She even gave us advice on nutrition.

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!!

We appreciate Ada's gentle, positive strategies to help us build our bond with our Lab and work on some behavior changes! We completed training with our dog when she was younger and called on Ada for an update. We plan to have some follow-up sessions as we prepare to add another dog to our family. Ada was wonderful!

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.

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!

Patti is amazing! She gave me practical tips on training my dogs and gave me insight into how their minds work. She showed me processes to help me work with them and gave me hope that I will be able to train them properly. She saw my dogs as loving, sweet and good dogs - like I do! Even just 24 hrs later I see a marked difference in their listening and wanting to change direction! I have 2 mastiffs and needed someone to come to my home since it wasn't possible to take them both somewhere by myself for training and she was able to do that. Patti is kind and gentle and I am so thankful for her help! I would definitely recommend her to anyone.

We love Zoom Room! The staff are amazing, especially Olivia at the front desk! The owner Cheryl is truly a gifted dog trainer and an all-around awesome person. Zoom Room offers numerous classes and you will find no trainer more dedicated to you and your pup than Cheryl; she has taught me so much about being a good handler and my dog Xedo loves her. Xedo has excelled at Agility under her awesome direction and insight. Even now, while he is recovering from ACL surgery, Cheryl has been so awesome, checking on him and offering ideas and encouragement. Cheryl is going to help us build strength in his knee, by utilizing one of her class specialties, “Puplates”! Best of all Zoom Room is a community gathering place where like-minded, fun loving dog owners and their awesome pups can meet up; whether it’s for "Agility League Night" (a friendly competition for pups and their peeps!) or celebrating while playing games and enjoying lite fare. Xedo even had his 6th birthday party at Zoom Room! Boy was that fun!! We have so many favorite events at Zoom Room it's hard to name them all! Cheryl is so awesome at putting together parties to celebrate every new season, including holiday photos shoots for pups and their owners. There is no better training studio around! If you are looking for a great community to connect with while learning tons about training your dog and having lots of fun while doing it, look no further! Zoom Room is perfect!

Our experience with Latony's Dog Training so far has been exceptional! Very responsive, very professional and very compassionate toward dogs. During our initial meeting they focused on learning exactly what we are looking for in training our dog and are helping us to created a long-term plan. We can't wait to get started on this process!

Our Lucy is quite sweet but also a very rambunctious Australian Cattle dog. This combined with her stubbornness and physical strength, she was out of control. Thankfully I found Alex. He is great! Right from the start he had Lucy following his commands. Lucy now sits / stays and comes when I call her. We are working on walking without pulling on the leash. It’s wonderful to see the changes with her. He loves dogs and they love him. I highly recommend Alex. I can’t say it enough, he is great!

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 HIGHLY recommend this person and we like the fact that it’s not all online we can converse with her if not in person at least over messenger

My dog and I took a Therapy Dog training course from Helen, and it was wonderful -- we passed our evaluations and have been enjoying our visits with lots of great people! I appreciate how Helen can customize instructions for the individual needs of each person and his/her unique dog. We had a truly great class experience!

I am 110% satisfied with Vivians care of my pets while I was on vacation! She was courteous, punctual, reliable, obviously knowledgeable and just a real sweetheart! My pups and I liked her immediately! She even got my "shy" dog to actually leave the yard and go for a walk! I haven't been able to get her to willingly do that! Thank you, Vivian! She sent me periodic status updates and pictures! When I got home she took time to "educate" me on some techniques for continuing the training she had done with my shy dog and she will be coming back for further training sessions! I am grateful I found Vivian and will highly recommend her to friends and family! Thank you Vivian from me and Autumn, and Summer, and Dinah!

Janet was a pleasure to work with! She came to our home to help us manage our dogs fear/phobia that was progressively getting worse. She had great ideas that we would have never thought of and helped us practice and refine some training techniques. She even helped us with our other dog and issues we hadn't planned on dealing with in that session. She answered all our questions and made sure we felt good about everything before she left. Highly recommend working with Janet who clearly loves animals and is good at what she does.

About

Deciding to have a home-based training facility was based around the concept that low-distraction environments increases your dog’s learning potential and decreases handler’s frustration. In addition, by offering small group courses or private sessions my goal is to increase the Instructor and Handlers' communication network. In turn, the concepts within the learning material are retained and enthusiasm about learning more about dog training will have increased ten-fold. One thing that sets me apart from most trainers is the fact that I'm an instructor and not just a dog trainer. I will give you detailed step-by-step guidelines on how to establish different behaviors or skills. Furthermore, my goal is to help you understand why a Responsiveness trainer's mindset will help you accomplish your goals. The term Responsiveness refers to the dog and handler who can work readily reacting to each others' cues because they have formed a trusting and caring bond towards each other. Also, I focus on the whole dog (mind, body, and soul) and not just one aspect of the sport.

      Murray is a cuddle bug at home, but very aggressive to other people and dogs. It's so bad, we have to put him in a bedroom before answering the door. He also pulls terribly on the leash. He's 80 lbs and so strong. I would like to take him out in public and not have him go crazy. I would also like to have him comfortable around other people.
