I can't say enough good things about Kylah and PAVLOV. We started working with her when Brig, our Bernese Mountain Dog, was about 6.5 months. He was already strong enough to pull us around on walks, and he was having a hard time consistently performing commands he had learned. We didn't have great luck in a group class setting at a different training facility, so after some research, we decided to try private lessons for some one-on-one attention.Kylah helped us SO much. She gave us the tools we needed to practice with Brig and build on skills each week. The homework was very helpful, and she recommended great training tools along the way. She was incredibly responsive in between sessions whenever I had a question or if something was seeming to trip me up. He suggestions always worked and helped us keep moving forward. She also helped us get started with an eCollar, as we are interested in doing further off-leash training but didn't have any experience using one and wanted to ease into it with guidance from a professional.This isn't my first Berner, but the difference in training Brig versus my previous female had been really stark and I was starting to feel a bit helpless. Kylah helped both Brig and me and my partner have the confidence we needed to form a better bond around training. We just had his final lesson at Home Depot, and he rocked it like a pro! He is so much better on walks, heels really well, and has completely mastered "park it" in the house on his raised bed. I look forward to future training opportunities with Kylah and PAVLOV. If you're considering private lessons, I 100% recommend it. It was really great to have Brig learn the basics in his own environment before taking him out to other spaces, and the difference he showed over just 5 lessons is remarkable. Thank you, Kylah!

I worked with Kylah on e collar training with my 1 year old golden retriever and it has done wonders for both me and my dog. Kylah did a great job demonstrating and explaining the training first and then had me practice in front her in order to make sure I was doing it correct!

After spending many hours researching professional dog training in the Denver area I decided to move forward with Pavlov's 2 week Board & Train program for obedience. It comes as no surprise to see that Pavlov appeared as the #1 search result every time- the team here is absolutely fantastic!Stephanie immediately set me at ease while explaining everything about the program while I was still inquiring as I was a bit hesitant to leave my dog somewhere unfamiliar for an entire 2 weeks. I was beyond fortunate to have my lab mix, Buju, get paired with Virginia. As nervous as I was to drop Buju off with "a stranger", after spending some time chatting with Virginia in her home, I left feeling like I had a new friend and had built a relationship with someone incredibly trustworthy and caring. Talk about peace of mind!! Virginia went above and beyond to update with me with videos- each time more and more impressive! I did not realize that part of the program included follow up trainings for myself (which were very much needed) and this is a HUGE bonus. Virginia does this in a way to be sure both the owner and dog are keeping up with her INCREDIBLE training. If I could leave more than 5 stars I would and I cannot speak more highly about Virginia and the team at Pavlov! It is also worth mentioning that if you are questioning whether or not the cost is worth the potential outcome, I hope this review helps you decide that it is worth every penny. It is also fantastic that Buju and Virginia formed such a great relationship (he was so excited to see her on our follow-up trainings!) because now I have a safe place to have him stay, without fear of picking up bad habits, if/when I need somewhere in the future.Thank you so much, Virginia and Pavlov! Buju and I are forever grateful and will continue to sing praises about your services to anyone that will listen!

We did the Board & Train program with Megan and could not be happier with the results. Our dog, Pogo, is a 2 year old labradoodle and had done a variety of positive reinforcement training programs elsewhere with some decent results. He was good with tricks, however he struggled with his excitement levels and behavior at times, and critically he was hopeless off leash. A couple weeks with Megan saw such a drastic change in how Pogo behaves and I am amazed with the off leash results. Since the training we've taken Pogo on long off leash hikes and frequently play fetch at the park - neither were things we could do before. I've never seen Pogo happier than when he's sprinting around during fetch and it's been so relieving to have confidence that he'll come right back when called. I also wouldn't underestimate how much better this training makes your relationship with your companion.Thanks Megan and Pavlog Dog!

Mara is the best trainer! We’ve been working with her for a couple months and she’s been excellent walking us and our 4 month old golden retriever, Birdie, through puppy training. Mara’s calm demeanor with our pup made Birdie comfortable early on, she always loves training days! Mara has also been excellent with me and my wife - teaching us just as much as the dog so we’re properly developing training tactics with Birdie. We will continue to work with Mara for a long time to come!
17:10 11 Jan 22
We had our dog Neyla for just shy of a year, and tried two different training programs, prior to doing a two-week board & train with Megan at Pavlov. We were struggling with leash reactivity.We couldn’t be more pleased with our dog’s progress. We could see an immediate difference when Neyla got back home, but also the three owners’ lessons (four for us, because Megan was INVESTED in Neyla succeeding) were invaluable. We highly recommend Pavlov!
17:08 11 Jan 22
We had a great experience with PAVLOV dog training. We brought our 5 month old golden retriever puppy to their 2-week board and train with Megan and were shocked by the results. As you can imagine a golden puppy is extremely hyper and jumpy and by the time we got her back she was much more calm, able to heel and walk on a leash with me, and generally way more relaxed and able to just chill around the house with us, highly recommend Megan!
23:53 10 Jan 22
Mara was great! I learned so much to help train my puppy, and really build that trust and bond! Definitely recommend!

I can’t say enough about their board and train program. Our sweet girl went in as a cuddly, lovable, non-listening tornado. She came out just as cuddly and lovable, but was a new dog in terms of listening and training. She became pleasant to take on walks, she listens when you tell her things, and she’s great off leash now. I also love that built into the program are three lessons after so we could learn what she learned and maintain the training. Seriously, huge thank to Tanya and Blake. If you are thinking about signing up, DO IT! You won’t regret it. Best money we’ve ever spent on our sweet girl. I’ll add that Mabel seems happier now that she can show off her tricks and has boundaries. She’s a “working class dog” and clearly is thriving now that she can hone those instincts.
22:33 08 Jan 22
My partner and I like many other families adopted a puppy during the pandemic and before we knew it we had a 10 month old puppy who was very poorly behaved to the point that we could no longer take him on walks without excessive pulling and barking. My partner and I hike and camp a lot, so it is important to us that we have a dog that we can trust on and off leash. That was when we decided to do some research and found Pavlov Dog Training.Our pup Boone went through the board and train with Virginia and came back a completely different dog. She is beyond amazing at what she does! He is now respectful of people's space, heels on walks, and is overall a calmer and happier dog. We get compliments on him almost every walk we go on! We cannot express how thankfully we are for Virginia. She is truly the best out there. I would highly recommend all dog owners who are looking for help to reach out to Pavlov!
22:15 07 Jan 22
I worked with Pavlov to help train my pup using the 6 course bundle and had a great experience. Mara taught me how to work with my Rhodesian ridgeback on behavioral issues and recall starting at 6 months old, and we spread the lessons out over a 3 month period. Mara did a fantastic job of giving me specific techniques, explaining why we were using them, and then watching me enforce them. We were able to fix my pups in house behavioral issues such as counter surfing, grabbing things from the floor he’s not supposed to, and mouthiness. She showed me how to improve leash walking because he’s a strong dog, and now I don’t have to worry about him pulling me all over the place. She also gave us a great foundation on working on his off leash recall using an e collar which he responds very well to. I had tried 2 other dog training programs prior to working with Mara and neither were nearly as effective as her program. From my experience, many of the dog training programs apply the same training techniques to all dogs, and I felt like Mara helped us find methods that worked specifically for my pup and his personality. I also appreciated the schedule flexibility that Pavlovs offers, as I have a busy work schedule. We scheduled the lessons so that I had time in between to practice techniques with my pup. I’d definition recommend this training program and wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again!
20:42 06 Jan 22
We really enjoyed the training we received from Kylah at Pavlov. Our Puppy Lomax really did well with the training and we are so happy with these new behaviors he's learned during the training.
19:20 06 Jan 22
I can't recommend PAVLOV - especially Mara - enough! My 3 y/o Lab/Weimaraner mix, Kai, is super sweet, smart, and energetic, but was having some issues on leash after being attacked. Mara not only taught me how to work through various issues (pulling, jumping, crying, etc.), but explained the theories behind the training methods. She taught me how (and when) to safely and effectively use an e-collar, which has made a world of a difference. I can confidently say that Kai has come leaps and bounds! I'm able to teach her new things using the foundations that Mara taught me. I can't recommend her enough!
21:50 31 Dec 21
We had the best experience working with Zoe! Our 1 year old Goldendoodle has had issues getting used to our indoor apartment… barking at people in hallways and elevators. Zoe really helped us get better control of Charlie in these situations. Even better, after completing training, Charlie was eligible for dog boarding with Zoe. This has also been a wonderful experience! Nothing but good things to say about Pavlov.
22:13 27 Dec 21
Mara was awesome! Within 2 sessions my dog and I’s relationship changed for the better. I was able to effectively communicate and control interactions.We focused on loose leash walking, impulse control, off -leash recall, and reactivity. 5 stars, A+!!!
16:43 20 Dec 21
My 10-11 month old pup Maggie just finished the board and train program with Megan at Pavlov and the 3 training sessions and I am here to say it has made a world of difference. I took her to the cherry creek off leash dog park yesterday where I was complimented on her ability to recall and listen by 2 different strangers. Before the board and train Maggie had trouble listening when there was higher levels of distraction and now I can get her to listen to commands anywhere we go. I am so grateful for Megan and the Pavlov Team who have helped Maggie go from a dog with selective listening to a dog that listens even when she is busy playing with all her new friends. I have been telling all my friends who have dogs to go to Pavlov for all their training needs!
23:37 19 Dec 21
ABSOLUTELY WOWEDWe have a Great Dane puppy… which can be a struggle as they get bigger and stronger. It got to the point where I could barely hold my dog on our walks. We looked at dog training reviews and loved what we were seeing from Pavlov.The trainer who was assigned to us was Mara. She was so attentive, direct, deliberate, and kind. Her instructions were clear and our homework each week was very beneficial.After six weeks of training, our dog is completely transformed. She listens, no longer pulls, and has matured well beyond my expectations.I could not recommend Pavlov and Mara enough. If you have a puppy, or even an older dog, don’t hesitate to have them perfect your pups.
22:36 19 Dec 21
We put our puppy through two week boarding training with Virginia and are so happy with the result. Our pup is very high energy (i.e., hyper) but came back so well-trained and really happy. Virginia is super sweet with the pups (and parents), and really effective as a trainer. We couldn’t be happier with Virginia and the results.
02:17 19 Dec 21
We have so many great things to say about Pavlov and our trainer Zoe. We have a newly adopted dog with leash aggression towards other dogs. Zoe jumped right in, provided us with the tools we needed and training methods to work on this behavior. Not only have walks become so much better, we also are confident in our method and no longer avoid situations we did in the past. We are able to reach out to Zoe and ask questions and am happy to have a trainer who can pet sit for us while reinforcing everything we learned. Can't recommend Pavlov enough!
21:58 15 Dec 21
I loved PALOV’s philosophy because it was more about training me than it was my dog. And I saw that how well my dog responded to my commands was determined on how well I kept up with the training week to week. All of my friends with dogs commented on how well trained my puppy was even though he’s only 5 months old. Also, I got an amazing trainer. Kylah is THE best! I told her that I am RVing full time next year and so she contoured our sessions to be what is most important for life on the road. She was also super responsive and answered ALL the questions I had (and I had a lot). If I ever adopt another dog I will be coming back here and working with Kylah. Picture is of my baby in Home Depot on a ladder platform laying down and staying like a good boy!!
19:30 14 Dec 21
We hired Pavlov's trainer, Kylah, to help with training our 1 year old shih tzu, Panda. I was astounded by the response Panda had to the training. After one session, he was a better boy, after five sessions he became the best boy. Kylah is an absolute pro. Panda, who was formerly quite disobedient, did everything she commanded and taught us so many helpful tricks to maintain his obedience while also embracing the fun loving dog that he is. We are so grateful for Kylah’s help, we truly enjoy our dog more after going through private training. Highly recommend for anyone, any kind of dog. Ask about "Park it"...our VERY favorite trick.
00:53 01 Dec 21
After working with Kylah, my Poodle and I have so much of a better relationship. Before we started training, my dog and I were struggling going on walks bc my dog was super leash reactive, particularly around other dogs. I would have to time our walks just right so we could avoid other people/dogs in the neighborhood bc encounters were just too stressful. When we started training with Kylah, I immediately saw results after our first session and by our third I was confident walking my dog out in public. She gave us all the tools necessary for calmer walks out in public before we even started the e-collar. Now it's been about a month since our last session with Kylah and my dog is still on her best behavior!
17:21 30 Nov 21
Had a wonderful experience with Pavlov and my dog Teddy's training. He is a rambunctious Welsh Terrier--a breed that is notoriously hard headed and difficult to train. Kylah was not afraid to take Teddy on and she has had a wonderful effect on him. In 5 lessons(the puppy training program), Teddy has become a much more obedient dog who responds promptly to commands. He has become such a pleasant little guy thanks to Pavlov... can't wait to use them for more training once he is a bit older. I'd recommend Kylah and Pavlov to anyone looking for incredible dog training!
20:45 29 Nov 21
We wanted to get off to the right start with our new Golden Retriever, Enzo, and a client had recommended Pavlov to me. Jed was great to speak with initially and quickly got us enrolled for the 5 session puppy program. Kylah was our dog trainer, and she educated us on the do's and dont's of training our puppy. The tools she gave us were immensely helpful, and Enzo adores Kylah. Highly recommend Pavlov.
17:35 26 Nov 21
Kylah is what we call a dog magician at our house. Our 7 month German Shorthair puppy has been completely transformed and we are happier and more enjoyable people because of it. She has whipped him into such an obedient dog that listens and is consistently seeking our direction in and outside the house. She’s also so understanding of what we specifically needed and valued out of the dog training as a whole. 10 out of 10 trainer and couldn’t be more grateful for her!! We are also going to set up additional sessions with her in the future for more in depth training as our puppy grows! Thank you so much Kylah!
21:31 21 Nov 21
Had a wonderful experience working with Virginia at Pavlov Dog Training! We signed our 2-year old dog, Duck, up for the two week board and train program with Virginia after a glowing recommendation from a friend. Just finished our second follow up lesson after picking Duck up and have been amazed at her progress - can finally go on a walk without constant leash pulling and now have the confidence to let her off-leash with her new e-collar. Can't say enough great things about the experience and so happy we found Virginia and Pavlov Dog Training!
23:27 19 Nov 21
I was having difficulty with my dog and her recall, off leash work and overall obedience in more social settings. Kylah was amazing and after completing the obedience level 2 program, my pup is certainly listening to me the first time around, heels well, and I have more confidence with her off leash. Kylah was always responsive and worked so well my dog. I would highly recommend her and Pavlov training!
23:47 11 Nov 21
Kylah was amazing with my dog! When we got started, my puppy had no impulse control, pulled excessively, jumped on everyone, and could not be off leash at all. After working with Kylah, my dog is a much better listener and I have the tools to keep her improving even now that our sessions are done.
00:40 11 Nov 21
5 sessions with Kylah and my puppy was a different dog. She didn't pull on the leash, she didn't chew my shoes and she came when called (usually). My life is so much easier now that Cora is not pulling my arm off when we walk.
14:32 10 Nov 21
Kylah our trainer was fantastic. We built some really strong fundamentals with our puppy, Mochi. We will definitely be coming back once Mochi is old enough for off leash!
22:28 07 Nov 21
Kylah was excellent with our pup Maisie. She tailored each session to what we needed, was available via text to support during the week and Maisie loved her!
23:14 31 Oct 21
We had 5 puppy training sessions with Kylah when our dog was 3-4 months old. She helped us in the following areas: obedience on walks; learning commands such as sit, stay, come and leave it; and redirecting attention when biting. Before meeting Kylah, we could not make it halfway down the block without our puppy pulling, laying down, etc. After our first session focused on walks, we immediately noticed an improvement. Kylah also provided a number of informal tips throughout our sessions (i.e. establishing routines young, potty and crate training) and made herself available in between sessions to answer any one-off questions we had. We would highly recommend working with Kylah and Pavlov with your young puppies -- we only wish we had started earlier and plan to work with them in the future!
02:34 26 Oct 21
Zoe with Pavlov Dog Training Denver was excellent. Always on time, responsive to texts and questions, and great with our puppy.
23:18 13 Oct 21
19:51 13 Oct 21
PAVLOV Dog Training Denver has been a LIFE SAVER for us. We got a wonderful golden retriever puppy during the pandemic and unfortunately failed at training him on our own with small children and everything else going on. We signed Maverick up for the two week board and train program and were placed with Virginia and we couldn't say enough amazing things about her and the program. Maverick came back a completely different dog and Virginia was incredibly helpful and patient with us as we navigated making sure the training stuck. She has always been available for follow up questions and we are now using her and PAVLOV for weekend boarding when we are out of town. We could not recommend Virginia and PAVLOV Dog Training more -- we are so happy with our loving and extremely well behaved Maverick!
19:11 06 Oct 21
Jenny from Pavlov was amazing! Our 3-year-old hound mix named Cindy was terrible walking on a leash. Constant pulling and very reactive to new things and noises. When she was a puppy, we used Pavlov for some basic puppy skills which was perfect at the time. It gave us a solid foundation. But now we needed some more extensive training, and we went back to Pavlov to book her for their Board & Train program. A couple weeks later, we picked her up from Jenny’s house and Cindy had become a perfect, obedient dog on walks! The transformation was unbelievable!! Jenny even came a couple more times to ensure that the training was working…once at our house and once at Wash Park. Jenny and Pavlov are highly recommended! We’re planning to use them again for their Boarding with Benefits program when we travel next.
18:30 01 Oct 21
I was SUPER impressed with the way Kylah trained and taught me to handle my little German Shepherd puppy!!! Her method worked so well and I couldn't believe the progress my dog made in just 5 lessons! I have complete confidence that she is going to be a beautifully mannered dog because of the time I spent with Kylah. I think my puppy is still hoping it will be Kylah at the door every time the doorbell rings. She just loved her! Thank you!!!!!
23:36 30 Sep 21
So glad I went with Pavlov for training, as their methods work. Kylah has helped transform my crazy, unmanageable Aussie puppy into an obedient and good little boy. I love my puppy even more now that he’s not dragging me around on walks and understands/obeys commands. My little doggie dude is so excited to see Miss Kylah in a few weeks for further training!
00:53 27 Sep 21
PAVLOV and our trainer Shannon were awesome. We had been doing a lot of training with our Dog on our own based off of books, YouTube videos, etc. and while it was going well there were some things we just couldn’t figure out. Teaching our dog a new behavior or getting him to do something when we asked was going fairly well, but getting him to stop certain behaviors we didn’t want, like excessive barking, was a challenge. Shannon was able to not just help us with the specific issues we had, like getting the barking under control in just one session, but teach us training methodologies we could continue using in the future. Our dog loved her, honestly have nothing but good things to say. If you’re looking for a great trainer, don’t hesitate to go with PAVLOV and Shannon.
22:05 23 Sep 21
AMAZING experience! Kylah is a dog whisperer - she has helped us with our mini Aussie puppy and wow what a long way she has come in just 5 sessions! Signing up for a second obedience session now. Highly. Highly recommend!
21:08 23 Sep 21
As a first time puppy owner I was clueless on where to start. Mara was so helpful and my puppy would pick things up instantly. She took time in each session to make sure I understood how and why to continue training after our session ended. I am now constantly told how sweet and well behaved my puppy is and I already have her signed up for off leash training!
16:52 22 Sep 21
I've been working with Kylah, and she has been so amazing for my aussie puppy Leo's progression and growth in so many different facets of his training so far! I am first time dog owner, never had any dogs or cats growing up in my family, so I really had no clue what I was getting myself into or what to expect and how to go about best training him. Having no prior experience it was definitely stressful at the start before starting training with him, and even committing to a training program like this made me nervous. Since starting with Kylah though, I couldn't have asked for a better beginning to Leo's puppy training, as she has made it so much easier on myself and taught me and Leo so much even just within the first training program. She also made me so comfortable right away, willing to answer any questions I had regardless of if they seemed like a dumb question from my standpoint or not, and always willing to be flexible and work around my schedule as needed. Several times she reached out to let me know she could meet up earlier or later with me depending on what worked best for me, and was even amazing about responding to any questions I had come up in between training sessions over text. In terms of her training techniques she has made it so easy for me to follow and understand, as someone who is completely new to owning a dog, as I've never gone home feeling like I needed more information or futher understanding around a certain command or training technique. I could go on, but really can't say enough about the quality that Kylah shows in her work consistently, and she really is always there to help out regardless of the time it may take out of her day, even offering to let me bring Leo over to play with her dog outside of training sessions. Highly recommend Kylah for anyone looking for any level of training for their dog, as her expertise and committment to success has had the most positive impact on my puppy Leo and on my own relationship with him!!!
01:25 18 Sep 21
A neighbor recommended Virginia at Pavlov. In two weeks she turned our 8 month old Great Pyr mix from a beast that the kids would avoid walking, into a well behaved and happy critter they now call "Miss Perfect". Great communication, great results and excellent coaching for the humans. I highly recommend Pavlov Dog Training.
02:41 15 Sep 21
We had the best experience with Kylah. Getting a corgi was a little scary but Kylah made it easy to get a routine going to control her little attitude. My entire family loved the experience of being able to have training in the comfort of our home. I would definitely 20/10 recommend Pavlov and Kylah to anyone!
01:41 15 Sep 21
My family and I worked with Kylah on my dachshund Massimo's behavior. Before we worked with Kylah, Mo was a struggle to walk, constantly reacting to other dogs and people in and around the apartment complex where we live. In about a month, he went from wildly reactive with dogs he had branded as his personal enemies to a wonderful walker and a very attentive listener. Massimo absolutely loves Kylah and he will do anything for her. This has really helped when she explains and shows how to train him properly. Kylah is also incredibly knowledgeable about dogs. In the first five minutes of my first session, she dropped some dachshund knowledge on me that completely floored me and had me understanding my dog better for the first time since I got him.
17:33 10 Sep 21
I just wrapped up my first set of 5 puppy obedience training sessions with Kylah from Pavlov. Tanya and her wonderful team helped me train my now 5-year old female German Shepherd when she was a puppy, and these new sessions were for my recently-adopted 1-year old female German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois mix, Ava. We have made so much progress in just 2 months and I would not have been able to do it without Kylah's help and guidance. Ava is a very smart pup and learns quickly, but she was a handful when I got her and impossible to walk on the leash, to the point that I was not certain if it would work out. She barked, pulled, and spun like a top every time another dog was in the area. I have a very demanding career and not a lot of free time, so Kylah gave me limited but key areas to work on and with just about15 minutes of training a day, Ava is now (for the most part) walking calmly on the leash, staying by my side when we walk by other dogs and sitting when I tell her to. In general her behavior has improved dramatically. I plan on doing more sessions with Kylah so that I can walk both of my dogs calmly around Sloan's Lake. I highly recommend Pavlov and Kylah!
01:33 08 Sep 21
We LOVED Pavlov Dog Training and especially our experience with Kylah. Our dog tended to be leash reactive towards both other dogs & humans. We worked with another trainer previously and saw significantly more progress over 5 sessions with Kylah than with that trainer. She was professional, reliable and very open to adjusting her tactics to meet our dog where he was. This meant accelerating certain sessions when he had already nailed the basics or spending more time on specific items where needed. We now feel well equipped to manage our pup's reactivity and he has grown significantly in his ability to self-manage as well.
18:09 01 Sep 21
We had a great experience with Pavlov dog training from the moment we called in to schedule their services. We worked with Mara Soo, who was great!!! She helped us get our crazy puppy under control and taught us how to use the e-collar which has been super helpful. She taught all of us so much and really helped set us up for success with our new puppy! I would highly recommend Mara with Pavlov to anyone who needs a great dog trainer!
04:12 01 Sep 21
Such an incredible experience with Pavlov Dog training. Mara Soo really helped us turn our stubborn and wild puppy into such a well behaved dog! She has so many solutions to the specific issues we found ourselves facing through our puppy’s first few months with us. I highly recommend Pavlov to anyone serious about having a well trained and well behaved dog, it’s worth the investment!
03:07 01 Sep 21
Super happy with Pavlov, and Mara specifically. There were a few bad habits our 2-year old dog had developed and we wanted to correct them. Thanks to Mara's help we were able to fix our priority concerns of jumping on people and pulling on the leash, plus others. To make it stick, we have certainly had to do our part in practicing repetitions with our pup but nothing Mara had us doing was too difficult or time consuming. It was really easy to work with Mara (and Pavlov) and we cannot recommend them enough.
19:23 29 Aug 21
Kylah is absolutely amazing and so knowledgeable-- I highly recommend her. The best part is that she taught us the skills necessary to continue and maintain our puppy's training so that we all can be at our happiest and have the best quality of life with our dog. A big THANK YOU to Kylah.
02:58 24 Aug 21
I just finished working with Kylah for a few reactive dog refresher sessions and had an excellent experience. I went through the full reactive dog training a few years ago and it was so helpful for learning to manage my pup's reactivity while on walks. Recently, I had been wanting to take her to the next level and build my confidence with her in much higher activity areas so I went back to Pavlov for some guidance. Kylah made sure to work off of the foundation I had already built and gave me the tools to continue to try new things. I feel much more confident and my Dane is really enjoying our new "field trips."

Hi, I’d like to share my experience with Pavlov Dog Training and its amazing trainer Kylah. For the past few weeks, Kylah has been training my 2 high energy and very different puppies. Tristan (6m) and Tessa (8m). Each one has different needs, skills, challenges and are at different stages in their development. This is where a professional, expert trainer comes into place to highlight and tailor the training as needed. We finished our first round of formal training and we will be resuming such in a few weeks to let the puppies digest the training, for me to follow up. I appreciate Kylah’s expertise, customizing the training, suggesting a few things to help the puppies (gear and others). Highly recommended service if you have dogs and want them a bit civilized and to continue being happy dogs!
18:31 19 Aug 21
Shannon Kole was a fantastic trainer. She has a true knack for communicating with dogs, commanding and tender. The individualized lesson and homework plan was very successful. Over the course of 6 sessions we saw a marked progress towards our goal of allowing our dog more freedom off leash. Months after the program, we are still enjoying the results of the training and have used it as a system to continue refining our pup's behavior. And the E-collar is worth the price! We are happy to have a quality device to use for the foreseeable future.

We had a great experience with Pavlov and our trainer Kylah! We have two puppies under a year old, and after obedience training, both know basic commands and are much better at home and in public places.I loved the format of sessions- they split the sessions between our dogs and gave us the tools to train them during the week. I plan on using them for any future dog training needs!
21:57 13 Aug 21
Kylah was wonderful, attentive and taught my dog (and us) valuable lessons. I have a new baby and we can now go on walks with out our dog pulling on the leash. Thank you, Kylah!!
03:38 13 Aug 21
We learned so much with our trainer Kylah! We needed some guidance with our puppy to make sure we were get started on the right foot. Kylah helped us learn basic commands and how to walk calmly on the leash. She was flexible with our schedules, responsive to our questions between sessions, and tailored her training to our needs. 10/10 would recommend!
01:40 13 Aug 21
My one year old hound and I worked with Kylah this summer. Before working with Kylah, my dog was high strung, anxious, reactive, and was constantly barking at me. Now, she is able to calmly lay with me, walk through Wash park without batting an eye at another dog, and overall has become so calm and confident. I'm so thankful to have worked with Kylah and gotten to know her. My relationship with my dog has significantly improved since starting with Pavlov!
23:08 12 Aug 21
We could not be happier with Pavlov and Kylah. She helped us with our newly adopted rescue. In five lessons we went from knowing little more than sit to functioning off leash, consistent recall, and practiced being calm on a patio. We never thought our hound mix could be an off leash dog, but Kylah taught us that it was possible! Would highly recommend Pavlov if you are struggling with basic or advanced training.
23:46 11 Aug 21
We just completed Obidence Training 1 and our trainer Mara was great! We no longer have issues with our lab puppy pulling on the leash, jumping up on visitors, or attention barking. Mara provides clear notes at the conclusion of each lesson, which makes it easy to practice between sessions. We plan to move on to Obidence Training 2 in the fall!
00:55 10 Aug 21
Jenny did an excellent job working with our Australian Shepherd puppy. She demonstrated clear goals and instruction that produced instant results after each session. We highly recommend her and are glad that we found Pavlov Dog Training!
22:04 09 Aug 21
Mara Soo was an amazing trainer. She was so knowledgeable and easily related the jewels of her training abilities. My Shihtsu Cleo and I profited immensely from her visits and are so grateful to Mara! This was worth every cent for a well mannered puppy.
19:04 09 Aug 21
I was having trouble properly training my 6 month old lab puppy. She was pulling while on walks, jumping on people and dogs, and rushing the front door when people came inside our home. Our trainer Zoe halfway through the first lesson had our pup walking on a lead gently. Zoe showed me the things I should’ve been doing all along. It takes work but our pup is now on her way to being well trained on an e-collar and isn’t rushing other dogs or jumping on people or dogs.I can’t recommend Pavlov Dog training enough. I only wished I engaged them 3 months sooner. Their responsiveness to my inquiries was also excellent.
01:56 06 Aug 21
Pavlov’s Mara Soo is an extremely qualified animal trainer and really helped us mold our Dogo Argentino “Lola” into an obedient, well behaved dog. Our main objective was to get Lola to a point where we could walk her off-leash and through Mara’s expertise we can comfortably do so. Thank you Mara and Pavlov!
17:23 31 Jul 21
I adopted a 3 year old dog from a shelter. She had some behavior issues, including some that may have forced me to return her to the shelter. Mara Soo of Pavlov Dog Training saved me from having to do that! I now have a calm, well behaved dog who loves everyone. I am so grateful for her help. I highly recommend Mara and Pavlov Dog Training!
22:09 30 Jul 21
We had Jenny R. as our trainer. While we had contacted Pavlov about only one of our dogs, Jenny ended up helping us correct behaviors for all three of our dogs. She really took the time to ensure we understood the basics before focusing more on our areas of concern. We knew that it wasn’t necessarily our dogs who needed the training but more us, as pet parents, who needed the training. Jenny was patient, thorough, and supportive - all helping us feel more confident with training. We tried group training before, which did not go over well, so we were hesitant about trying any type of training again. Jenny definitely changed our minds and we’re so happy we decided to give Pavlov a try!
19:52 28 Jul 21
20:46 27 Jul 21
Soo happy that we decided on Pavlov for puppy training!Cameo was simply amazing! Very informative and helpful throughout all our training sessions. Made our puppy Maya feel very comfortable too. Don’t ever hesitate to ask any questions! She answered all of our questions that we had, especially on how to deal with other owners and dogs in different settings.Highly recommend if you are looking to get any training done for your pup or dog!
18:11 27 Jul 21
Thank you Kylah for helping me train my one year old, 75 pound bernedoodle, Moose! I remember during our first session I talked about how badly I wanted to bring Moose to cafe's and breweries without her going crazy & being loud. Sure enough, by lesson five Moose, Kylah, and I sat outside at a cafe in busy lohi, and Moose was the calmest dog there! Moose doesn't pull on the leash anymore, she stays in "park-it" while I am busy in work meetings and she comes when called (even without a treat). Kylah gives you the skills you and your dog need to be successful- Moose and I can't thank you enough!!
22:22 26 Jul 21
If I could give 10 stars I would. Mara was our rockstar trainer who worked magic on our pup. She is a gentle dog whisperer! This is my boyfriend's and my first time raising a pup on our own and naturally we were a bit lost with the training piece. Our puppy had a huge nipping problem and would bite my limbs and tear my clothes non stop. After our FIRST session, Mara gave us the tools to help with this behavior and we immediately saw a difference within the first week. It was a huge relief and it only got better each week. I super appreciated that Mara always provided the "why" behind each thing she taught us as it helped me understand the way my puppy views the world. We will definitely be signing up for the obedience 2 course when our pup is old enough because we had such a positive experience this time around. We look forward to continue building the bond we have with our pup and are so happy we met Mara and the Pavlov team through this experience. We now have a healthy way to communicate to our pup and that is the best feeling ever! Thank you for everything Mara (and for saving my limbs!!)
20:24 21 Jul 21
When our bernedoodle puppy was 5 months old, we had reached a point where we could no longer get her to listen. She was getting bigger, and while she did very well with house training, she was a nightmare on a leash and pulling constantly, was chewing on furniture, and jumping on people. I contacted Pavlov Dog Training based on their great reputation, and purchased a 5 session package. Our trainer, Jenny, came to our first session and listened to all our behavior concerns. Over the course of 5 sessions, she has helped us learn how to implement appropriate consequences to correct all of them. We have seen such a huge transformation in our sweet girl, Stella, and we have learned so much about how to work with her!! Jenny is amazing! I would highly recommend her and Pavlov Dog Training to anyone that needs help training their dog!
14:44 21 Jul 21
We had a great experience working with Roxanne. After having our puppy for a few weeks, he was getting out of control with with nipping, jumping and being overly excited. Although we had read lots of dog training books, we didn't find the advice to be helpful or effective and decided to try a professional trainer. The difference was dramatic. Our dog responded to Roxanne immediately and we then realized what a great, obedient dog he could be. She listened to what we needed and tailored her approach to what we wanted to accomplish. After just 6 weeks we have a puppy that doesn't jump, walks on a loose leash, comes when called, waits patiently for food or to enter or exit a door, and will stay on his bed while we eat meals. We get compliments all the time from strangers when we are out walking about his great manners. I would highly recommend!
16:25 20 Jul 21
Cameo is personable, professional and extremely knowledgeable about all things dog training. We have two energetic border collie's who were in desperate need of some training/structure. We worked with Cameo for 6 sessions on leash manners, "park it", and general obedience. We saw huge improvements in all of these areas and couldn't believe the progress we made with our pups in such a short time. The training and homework is a lot of work but Cameo made it fun for both the humans and the pups. I would highly recommend Pavlov dog training - you won't regret it!
03:23 16 Jul 21
Kylah has been so helpful with training our Golden Retriever puppy. She makes it fun for us and the pup while getting great results!
19:38 15 Jul 21
Lily our 2 year old rescue had experienced a couple of different trainer’s in her first year, all helpful and positive. COVID put us into break mode with training. A break was good, however it became clear Lily and our family would benefit from additional behavior training.I witnessed a client’s dog “in training mode” while visiting her office and was impressed…and so it seems were her office mates who commented that the the trainer had been a miracle worker with the dog. We signed up and glad we did. Roxanne helped us identify and define our needs. Her goal oriented style helped us better understand our own behaviors and how our patterns affected Lily’s behaviors. She kept us on schedule and on track. Roxanne’s training style is deliberate, firm, caring and effective. We look forward to future lessons with her as needed and have highly recommend her for her training abilities.
17:01 15 Jul 21
Cameo was an excellent trainer and Pavlov made it incredibly easy by training right at our home. Our pup Chauncey is noticeably more obedient and she provided us with all the knowledge needed to train him in basic obedience. She’s also quite funny. We will likely continue additional training with Cameo and Pavlov once our pup is neutered. Highly recommend their services!
03:11 14 Jul 21
I had a great experience with Pavlov and my trainer Mara. I did puppy training with her for my 4 month old Frenchie puppy and by the end of our training Remy had all the puppy basics covered and even some advanced skills, too. I was impressed at how quickly Remy picked up each command, and Mara was extremely knowledgeable on all things puppy. I appreciated that Mara gave me the tools to teach Remy new things now that our sessions are over! Also, she was always prompt and I could text her any of my questions in between sessions and she replied almost immediately! Thank you Pavlov and Mara!
23:24 11 Jul 21
We have been working with Mara at Pavlov Dog training all summer and have been so happy with the results. She has a wealth of knowledge and each lesson came prepared to advance our Goldendoodle and Bernese Mountain dog to the next level. We highly recommend her and the Pavlov training service!
21:41 10 Jul 21
Great experience with the obedience program that Pavlov offers. Our trainer, Mara, did an amazing job with our Catahoula Leopard. She catered his obedience training to specific behaviors that would arise throughout his training program. She also taught me the proper way to handle specific behaviors. There were behaviors that we weren’t properly curbing and now know how to! Thanks for the help- definitely considering the advanced obedience program based on how well our Catahoula is behaving on the basic obedience commands!
20:58 07 Jul 21
If your looking for a trainer for your dog look no further then Pavlov and make sure you ask for Kylah!! Kylah is amazing she worked with us on our puppy training with our mastiff/shepherd mix. She helped him on a path to be a great dog and we plan on signing back up for his future training. We had issues with crate training and leash walking and she was able to get both of these under control as well as his basic commands. Thank you so much!
05:31 06 Jul 21
We recently completed the Leash Drama program with Kylah. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and the PAVLOV program! Response time was prompt and scheduling was incredibly flexible. Kylah brought professional and insightful on-site training skills, and tailored the program to provide exactly what we needed for a well-behaved pup. We are so grateful and definitely recommend this program.
21:29 03 Jul 21
Pavlov and Kylah were awesome! Millie and I had a great experience. Kylah was super responsive, a great communicator with human and dog alike, and made a great impact throughout our program. Highly recommend!
15:47 03 Jul 21
Hiring Mara through Pavlov was one of the best investments we've made. We adopted a new puppy (difficult breed: husky) and could not train him on our own. Mara is a dog whisperer. She supplied us with simple but extraordinarily effective techniques tailored exactly to our dog. She took the time to make sure we understood the hows and the whys of everything she asked us to do. We now have a happy and well behaved puppy who enjoys learning. Throughout the entire process, Mara was always available via text and email to answer our questions. She was exceedingly professional in every way and I cannot recommend her services highly enough.
15:47 03 Jul 21
Mara was the Dog whisperer!!!We had a shelter husky mix that was a rocket without fins, so energetic with no direction. Ran off at everything, never listened, full of love but no training.After working with Mara, we are able to have him off leash at a park with little issues now, and we have a ton of 'training material' on hand so we can keep our dog behaving.Would recommend:)
16:24 30 Jun 21
Mara was an awesome trainer for our 100 pound pup! She helped us navigate his fear of children, his leash walking, and his over excitement when greeting people at our door. She was patient with my questions, thoughtful with her responses, and just all around a wonderful dog trainer!
15:57 30 Jun 21
Mara was wonderful with our small dog.Our dog's training and socialization had been interrupted by COVID, so she tends to be shy and her existing training was very patchy, but Mara stepped right in and was quickly able to determine what would work best for her.Mara covered everything we wanted her to know and more. I didn't have any experience with dogs before, so Mara was very patient to walk me through it. All the methods used were incredibly effective, which has made our daily reinforcements a source of joy and connection.I'd highly recommended Pavlov training, specifically Mara. This was a wonderful investment for our dog and ourselves.
02:29 26 Jun 21
We had a fantastic experience! In five sessions, Kylah taught us all the skills we needed to drastically improve our dog’s behavior- we’ve curbed the barking, now trust our dog to come back to us off-leash, and he’s no longer pulling on walks. We specifically did the leash drama program and it was perfect for us- I’d say we got everything out of this that we hoped and then some. Also, our dog LOVES Kylah. She was super easy to work with and answered all of our questions about our dog’s behaviors. HIGHLY recommend!
00:22 26 Jun 21
I hired Pavlov for 5 week puppy training for our lab, Mabel. Roxanne was awesome. She was very in tune with our priorities and made sure the training was appropriate for Mabel’s personality and intellect. Our sessions were focused and efficient and very productive. The training is almost more for the human than the dog so you have to do your homework, but it’s worth it! Time and money well spent - many thanks Roxanne!
16:52 25 Jun 21
This was not our first Dog Training company for our Kona…we had tried and partially failed the first go-around. That is, until we found Shannon and the good folks at Pavlov Dog training. The methods that she employed WORKED - she was easy to work with, and most importantly she got us the tools we needed to curb some ‘habits’.I would definitely recommend the company…they know their dog psychology and we’re great partners.
17:22 23 Jun 21
The best money i have ever spent, ever was on the leash drama training program. My dog after 7 weeks went from an unruly dog chasing everything in front of him to being able to walk next to me entirely relaxed. I would highly recommend using their services and have been telling all my friends if they need a trainer to use Pavlov!
19:58 14 Jun 21
PAVLOV dog training is amazing. Our trainer Chelsey was very knowledgeable and was able to work wonders with our puppy Bravo. After Bravo returned from the board and train, even our neighbors commented that he acted like a totally different dog. I would highly recommend PAVLOV to anyone who needs dog training.
17:14 14 Jun 21
Our experience with PAVLOV & Chelsea was 10/10. Not only was Chelsea incredibly professional the results were amazing. We struggled with our dog pulling on walks, recalling him off leash, and sprinting out of open doors - Chelsea fixed each of these areas and helps me sleep at night knowing my dog is safe in a city!
18:01 13 Jun 21
This is truly a great investment! I would highly recommend Pavlov to anyone with a stubborn pup. I had recently adopted a year old Pitbull and she was a handful right out of the gate. She had very little manners to begin with. You name it - barking, pulling on leash, lunging at other dogs/people, separation anxiety, potty training, counter surfing, leaping up on guests, and had zero kennel training. That first weekend was hell and I was worried I’d have to return her immediately because our older dog was also fed up with this little hell raiser. I would say I had a very vanilla level, of dog training experience myself, so I definitely wanted help to see if I could make this pup have a better quality of life. Pavlov connected me with Mara and even after the first training we saw immediately improvements. Granted I had to continue the training every day in between my sessions with Mara. That’s the real trick, you have to put in the time yourself too. We started with the 1st level obedience and afterwards the first level of off leash training. It took about 2.5 months altogether and now she is such a better dog! Mara went above and beyond during that time. She was so great at breaking down the causes and effects of each training. Which helped us to understand from our dogs’ perspective. She even used her own pup to help us with lunging at other dogs! Her availability was great for my schedule and her communication was top notch. I could even contact her when she wasn’t scheduled to visit with me. I can’t praise her enough! After those 2.5 months my pup isn’t perfect, we still have a lot of work to do, but she has made tremendous strides and continues to learn more everyday. Pavlov and Mara have set us up for success and I can’t wait for all the adventures life has in store for us!
15:14 12 Jun 21
We had never had a dig as a family. When we git our puppy Roxanne was here and talked us through the first days and weeks. She was very patient and included our kids and bith of us in the training. She took time to learn what we wanted, what our priorities are and what our expectations were. She was super responsive over text and email with any questions tgat came yp between trainings and even helped us with different settings. Would absolutely use her again and again.
04:22 12 Jun 21
We had a wonderful experience with Shannon we were having trouble with our dog being rude, all up in people’s business , and pulling when on his leash. After our first few classes we saw a change in our dog for the better. Our trainer gave us many tools and tips to help our pup behave. We have really seen a change in him. We highly recommend their services 🐶
21:02 11 Jun 21
Kylah was an amazing trainer! Our dog Murphy had some obedience problems that were getting out of hand. Kylah was so efficient and patient with us, and we noticed a big difference after the first session with Murphy’s behavior. After the full course, he is now so well-behaved, and we have learned so much as owners. I can’t recommend Kylah and Pavlov enough!!
18:46 11 Jun 21
My dog and I worked with Kylah and it went so much better than I expected. I had a reactive German shepherd and as much as I wanted to take her places and give her a good life, her reactivity to other dogs made me feel hopeless that that wouldn’t happen. I had done a lot of reading and asking around about dog trainers and it seemed like trainers were hit or miss and I could possibly spend all this money for nothing to change. However after only 3 sessions, Kylah had my dog walking right past dogs on the sidewalk! For our last session, we went to petsmart and walked around and my dog didn’t bark at one single dog and even sat nicely while we checked out with another dog in line behind us. She was so great to work with because she listened to what I knew about my dog’s issues and worked around us and where we already were in our own training. I really thought my dog would never get better, but there were noticeable changes even after 1 session. If you’re still trying to decide on a trainer, I highly recommend Kylah and Pavlov!
01:46 11 Jun 21
Kylah is great! We had previously only had rescues and never a dog under 5 months old, so we were a bit out of our element with a rambunctious English Bulldog puppy. We have tried other dog trainers in the past and this experience was totally different.Kylah + Pavlov made the process relaxed and simple. Everything is broken down into a few basic concepts that once learned (by both you and your pup) can be applied in other areas, so you can continue to grow even after training is complete. I'm sure we will reach a point where we are ready to learn more, and will not even consider any other trainers. Thank you Kylah!
21:20 10 Jun 21
Emmylou, my one-year old black Labrador, and I just completed Obedience 1 and 2 with Roxanne. We are both super happy with the training approach, the process, results and Roxanne’s kind and informative approach to training. Of course, Emmy picked everything up remarkably quickly. I was the slower one. Roxanne was very knowledgeable in the training approach she utilized offering very practical step-by-step instructions as well as helping me to understand “how” Emmylou would likely interpret my correct (and , at times, incorrect!) commands and related actions. She was always clear in demonstrating what she wanted me to do during each exercise and would, when necessary, play the role of Emmylou to make clear what she was expecting. She made training fun and understandable which left me and Emmy with the homework tasks.As a result of Roxanne’s assistance and teaching, Emmylou is and will be a better companion for me and, I hope, I am a better caretaker for her. Moreover, Emmy will be a much safer and happier dog because of Roxanne’s caring, consistent and conscientious approach to training.If you are considering getting some help with training your dog, go with Pavlov’s Dog Training and you would be really lucky and rewarded if Roxanne is your (and your dog’s) trainer. I plan on following up with Roxanne when Emmylou and I are looking for additional training.
16:18 10 Jun 21
Shannon was amazing! We have two toy poodles in a noisy apartment complex and she gave us the tools to effectively train them and manage their anxious barking. She changed our lives! I highly recommend Pavlov!
