    k9 Minds!
    My dogs were out of control, so I called Ron Johnson and described their behavior.  He came that day and spent 2 hours. HE miraculously changed their boundry issues then came back and had 1 of my dogs walking on a leash staying at his side.

    Pavlov Dog Training
    Tanya?s approach was professional, knowledgeable and patient when working with me, my
    daughter and Cricket. Her enthusiasm and passion for working with dogs really
    made the experience productive and fun even when doubt and frustration set in
    and she continues to check-in with us to see how Cricket is progressing.
    I am excited for anyone who makes the decision to work with PAVLOV
    Dog Training. You will see positive results, you will create that ?bond? with
    your pet and you will gain a positive mentor in continuing to train and love
    your dog!

    k9 Minds!
    We started working with Ron about a year ago and will continue to use his services. I have tried several dog trainers and just haven't had the success that I have had with Ron. Diego (my friendly pit bull) responds to him unlike anyone else. He has made the impossible- possible. 
    Diego has been a challenge. He has his issues but most of those have been addressed thanks to Ron and his training techniques. Diego started off being very dog aggressive!  You could not bring him within a mile of a dog without him being reactive- growling, barking and lunging. With Ron's rehab program, he was able to introduce Diego to dogs slowly and now has him running with a seven other dogs "his pack" every Monday, Thursday and Friday. Unlike many trainers, he set expectations from the beginning. He told me that it was going to be a long road to recovery. He made it clear that we needed to dedicate time and effort to his training and not just the hour a week we spend with Ron. He provided us the tools that we needed to have the type of dog we wanted. His obedience is much better than it has ever been. 
    Diego still has a ways to go with his training, but without Ron's help, we would have never been at the place we are. Diego LOVES him and looks forward to seeing him three days a week. On the days he is not with him, Diego stares out the window and wines waiting for Ron and his doggy friends. :-)
    I can't thank him enough for helping us get to a better place with Diego. He is GREAT! I would recommend him a 100 times over to anyone who has not had success in the past with other trainers. He is our dog whisper. He just works miracles!!! Diego is such a happier dog because of Ron.

    k9 Minds!
    I have used k9 minds for almost a year now. My 2 year old female boxer was showing signs of anxiety/aggression towards dogs to the point where people were dodging me and I knew I needed help! I tried things on my own, but it didn't seems to help, in the end it actually made her worse. K9 minds has helped and continues to help with her anxiety issues, as she continues to learn that there IS fun in playing with other dogs (besides her brother). Through one-on-one training sessions to group sessions he has provided me with knowledge and techniques to help reduce her anxiety when meeting other dogs. Some techniques include: more of dogs greeting her from behind since she can't handle face to face, never hold a tight leash because that makes it worse (which is exactly what I was doing) and RELAX because she is feeling everything I'm feeling. Those are just a few of the many techniques I have learned. K9 minds also continues to help reinforce the skills through boarding and training. K9 minds will take her (and my other 3 year old boxer) for the weekend and continues to work on her anxiety through trips to the dog park and interactions with other dogs. I have learned that you CAN teach an old dog new tricks as long as your willing to commit to the training process. The training process involves time, patience and CONSISTENCY, CONSISTENCY, CONSISTENCY! If your willing to commit and are ready for a great relationship with your pooch, try k9 minds!

    My beloved Golden retriever, Callie, has a very strong prey drive and I could not control her on walks.  I had moved  temporarily to an apartment where there were a lot of prairie dogs and rabbits and once, when I went to pick up my mail with her on a leash, she jerked away from me to go chase a rabbit, causing me to let go of her leash, fall down and hit my head on a wooden post.  She got away and I had to have 11 stitches on my forehead.
    I realized I had to do something to get her under control so, at the advice of my daughter, I contacted Terroux Kennels.  They kept her for four weeks.  I was very impressed with their very positive training methods and their concern that I learn training skills.  When I was able to take her home, she was a different dog.  They emphasized that I needed to reinforce the training and that she needed to wear a Gentle Leader or Halti collar with her leash; also that I needed to make her do a down-stay for an hour every day, which I do and which she does not object to.  They also very much encouraged me to come back, at no cost, for any further refresher courses or questions I had.

    They are just great. I speak highly about both the kenneling and the day care. Their staff truly loves the animals and they have enough staff the the dogs are supervised and safe. The manager is very dedicated to both the pets and the owners and will do whatever it takes to accommodate both. The kennels are very clean and they even have cameras so that you can see the dogs play. I have been delayed at work and they've waited for me. I got my dog at the shelter and she had a lot of aggressive issues with other dogs and they just worked with her and did such a good job socializing. Now she's just a sweetie!

    Sit Means Sit Denver
    We contacted Sit Happens five years ago to assist us with our one year old border collie mix. While taking her for a walk - it was more like she was taking us for a walk. Within just a short time, Dave had her walking on the leash by our side. He took us from wanting to "find a nice home" for our dog to "can't imagine life without her!" Sit Happens is truly fabulous! Not only was our dog trained but so were we! Our dog now listens and we only have to give the command once. We have recommended Sit Happens to all of our friends and family! The staff is top notch! You will be so proud of what you and your dog can accomplish once your training is complete. It was well worth the money - definitely an A+++++++ experience.

    I had a wonderful experience with this company. He observed each dog on the class and helped to personalize the training. Great class!
