SMART START DOG TRAINING REVIEWS
Tony and David have been an unbelievable help to my boy Fred. Fred had such bad anxiety and wouldn’t even want to walk outside to use the bathroom. Tony came and changed this little boy's life and made him less fearful of the world. I would totally recommend this place to all people looking for help with their dogs. These people are awesome and very helpful in every way imaginable! Thank you Tony.
We have been getting a couple of classes from instructor David. He’s been a great help and has changed our puppy in only a few classes. Now my mom wants additional classes. He used to run around and not listen to anybody. Just two classes later we can leave him in the middle of the living room and tell him to stay and he won’t move until we call him.
I, my son, & our new puppy Abby learned a lot with our 1st puppy training class taught by Sarah. Thanks so much, Sarah. We can't wait until our next class.

THROUGH THE LEASH DOG BEHAVIOR AND TRAINING REVIEWS
Matt is wonderful and has built our confidence in Luke. It was amazing seeing Luke grow to like him considering he didn’t like people. Before Matt, Luke was chaotic, and wouldn’t listen to anyone. Luke wouldn’t recall, chased down dogs, and growled at people. He is now an amazing dog who recalls every time no matter how distracted he gets. I would say there is always room to grow but in this little time, Luke’s progress has skyrocketed beyond our expectations. Matt is currently training our second puppy and she is doing very well and learns a lot during the sessions. It feels great to be able to talk to Matt and get advice on any concerns we encounter with the doggos. Thank you Matt you have done wonders.
Pj and john are by far the most educated dog trainers i have ever come across. They have a deep understanding of dog psychology and know how to communicate with every breed of dog. i have a huge 125lb cane corso and knew from the start i would need a trainer for this particular type of breed i chose. Pj and john walked me through every situation and showed me proper technique on how to use the leash, commands, etc. consistency and repetition are what they embedded in my head and i can honestly say it was the best money my boyfriend and i ever spent. To be honest im not much of a "review reader or writer" but because of their exceptional gift of communicating with dogs, I felt compelled to share my experience. If you are looking for a dog trainer I highly recommend PJ & john, if you are for whatever reason hesitant just start with the free evaluation they do, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain. Trust me when I say that it's soooo nice having an animal that actually listens to you!
Me and my family have a Husky. Our pup had a lot of anxiety after we moved into a densely populated area. This training changed our lives for the better. I cannot recommend Taijon enough. Our dog is happy, well-behaved, and calm. It improved his quality of life but also ours. He is a different dog. He can now go to the beach, to restaurants, and anywhere else we go! The first lesson alone was worth the entire training price. You have to put in the time, but you will not regret how your pup turns out. It is all focused on communication with your dog from the start. Taijon never counted a session or how many hours he worked with us until we met all our goals.

DANIEL DE LA ROSA - DOGS REVIEWS
I met Daniel through a Google search, on a whim. He’s worked with two of my dogs, training them to be service dogs. He has a special way with dogs (and people). He is kind, knowledgeable, straightforward, and gets the job done. He uses positive reinforcement, rather than strong-arming the dogs he works with. He is one of a kind, and I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a good, PATIENT, dog trainer.
I worked with Daniel to train my dog as a service dog. I learned so much from this experience: Daniel is very knowledgeable about dogs and people, he was open and kind, and his communication is clean, direct, and honest. I realized that the sessions were so much more than techniques for my dog: I was also part of the session and as a result, the experience created a deeper bond between me and my dog and gave me the confidence to step in the world as an owner of a service dog. I was deeply moved by the experience. My dog also gained so much more energy, vitality and purpose. I am very grateful to Daniel.
There are not enough words to describe how amazing Daniel is- he is super professional, reliable, and an amazing trainer. I really thought my dog was “untrainable” because she has a mind of her own, but Daniel was able to “speak” to her and understand how to get through to her. He is truly a dog whisperer! Highly recommend using him for all of your dog training needs! My dog also loves him and gets super excited for each training session. 5 stars for sure.
