We had a great experience here. Our dog was about 8 month old and we went through the Basic course. We learned quite a few tricks to help with the training and our dog enjoyed the interaction with the other dogs(before and after the training). Again, we very much enjoyed the course and are coming back for some of the next level training courses. Might even try the agility training.

I went to this trainer a few years ago with my dog reactive dog. I had no idea about this but basically my dog is very uncomfortable on leash around other dogs (as are many dogs). Joella set us up to fail, unfortunately. I wish I had known then what I know now. I wouldn't have put my dog through this stress - or myself. When my dog would bark at other dogs she made us go to the center of the circle of the group and wanted me to FORCE my dog to look at me rather than bark at the other dogs. this is just about one of the worst things you can do to a dog reactive dog. It is a great way to make your dog not trust you - and that's what happened. There are much better trainers out there. I had a much better experience with very knowledgeable trainers at the San Diego Humane Society.

Our Beagle attended basic obedience school We had a hard time keeping him focused and didn't end up attending all of our classes. Although we got a book at the beginning of the class from Joella and ended up doing our training at home and were very happy with the results. Joella is super sweet and very understanding. There to answer any questions you might have during your training.

Our lab puppy attended puppy socialization and basic obedience classes. Joella has great insight into the needs of the young dog and offered excellent training tips. Our dog came away very well socialized.
