I don’t even know where to begin. Everything from start to finish was an amazing experience and extremely high value resource. We were fortunate enough to have Amazing Virgina train our 9 month old puppy, and us in the two week obedience course. Virginia was absolutely spectacular and so welcoming… she was extremely patient with all our questions about dog training, she was very communicative in her educational videos and teaching process. Our puppy was a completely different dog with obedience to manners and listening to us. I really can’t thank Virginia enough for everything she’s done for us. We are just ecstatic with the outcome and our life is so much easier with a dog that behaves.

Pavlov Dog Training was a great investment for our one year old golden retriever. We've done the 2-week Obedience 1 and 1-week Obedience 2. The biggest benefit we found came from the 1-1 sessions after each bootcamp with Ashlyn, our trainer. Ashlyn is thoughtful, extremely good with our dog, and was patient as we learned the tools. Using Pavlov gave us the confidence to continue training with our dog and we've noticed a huge difference in our ability to understand certain signals. We will absolutely keep using Pavlov for board and train and highly recommend this entire team!

I sent my Weimaraner to the Board to Train and his trainers Tanya and Jason did an absolutely amazing job! I am so impressed with the results. I can now take my dog on walks again with out him being too much to handle and I feel more comfortable taking him places and having him be around other people/dogs. I can’t wait to continue working with such a wonderful group of trainers. 10/10 recommend!

We had a wonderful experience with Quinn (our dog trainer) at Pavlov Dog Training. We signed our Bernese puppy up for 2 weeks of board and training and we saw immediate results. He is so much better on walks, goes into the crate without any hesitation, and follows simple commands reliably. He even is good on off leash walks! Quinn has been very helpful in answering ALL of our questions and has been amazing with our puppy! Can’t say enough great things about the experience!

Isabelle helped us train our mixed pup. After two weeks of boarding training and some at home training and support sessions in the following weeks, our pup went from constant tugging during walks, barking out the window, and aggressively pursuing rabbits and squirrels … to a great dog that heels as we walk, commands to keep her calm when folks visit, and great strategies that are paying off when we see rabbits and squirrels. We hope to continue the training in the future to get her off leash mountain hiking ready. Thanks again Isabelle!
22:52 13 Dec 22
My dog completed the 2-week board and train with Quinn while I was in the process of moving. The weekly updates and video tutorials were amazing and I felt I could actually implement the techniques at home. The included follow up lessons have helped me maintain the progress made in terms of recall and behavior on leash.
15:46 13 Dec 22
I highly recommend Pavlov - it is money and time well spent. Our golden retriever did the “Board and Train” program with Trainer Quinn - and I can’t praise the program or her enough. We have a well mannered 1 yr old dog who can walk politely on a leash, go off leash on trail runs with me using an e-collar, greet new people, including kids with impeccable manners, and nicely chew on a bone in “park it” when we need her to just chill. We have the perfect dog thanks to Quinn and Pavlov.
00:38 11 Dec 22
I enrolled my dog in the board and train program, and Quinn did such an outstanding job with Peaches that I enrolled my other dog Pepper in the board and train program and specifically requested Quinn work with him. Highly recommended!
17:39 02 Dec 22
I enrolled Biscuit, my King Charles Spaniel, in the board and train program with Virginia and I could not be more thrilled with how well she did! I highly recommend this program!
21:26 01 Dec 22
My dog Luna completed the two week board and train program at Pavlov. I worked with Quinn who is a wonderful trainer! Luna is a high-energy dog and I needed quite a bit of help learning how to teach her how to walk on a leash properly and to be less reactive towards loud vehicles driving by. The board and train program worked wonders for Luna. Quinn was incredibly generous with her time and it was evident she was invested in getting to know me and my overly-enthusiastic pup. She understood my dog's personality and not only provided me with in-person training after the board and train, but also gave me homework assignments tailored to my dog's needs that help us keep working on training skills in between sessions. She was also very available for questions and flexible with her schedule. Quinn and Pavlov went above and beyond! You can really tell that Tanya (the owner), Quinn, and everyone else that works for this company cares about what they do and what’s best for the dogs.

My girlfriend and I recently adopted a 2 year old husky samoyed mix named Blue. When we first got Blue we were pretty overwhelmed, he would constantly bark for attention, would pull after other dogs or people on walks and wouldn't listen to us.We found Pavlov's after doing a bit of research, out of everywhere we looked Pavlov's had the best reviews so we figured it would be our best bet. We signed Blue up for the Board and Train 2 week on leash obedience program. While Blue was at Pavlovs he worked with the trainer Ashlyn. We would receive 2 videos of Blue a week highlighting what he had been working on, also there were always videos of Blue playing with the other dogs on Pavlovs instagram.In addition to the 2 week board and train program, we also received 3 sessions with Ashlyn to work on what blue had learned. Ashlyn was awesome, she answered all of our questions that came up about Blues behavior and showed us how to enforce all of the commands that Blue had been taught.Now that Blue has officially graduated training, it is ridiculous how much better he is. It's like he's another dog. The attention barking has completely stopped. I'm currently sitting at my desk writing this review and he is just curled up at my feet, cool as a cucumber. When we take him for walks, he is attentive to us and has gotten much better about pulling at other dogs.We were initially hesitant to send blue away due to the cost, lets be honest this isn't cheap. However given the option we would 100% do it again. With something as important as dog training we wanted the best, and I'm assuming you do too.
14:22 27 Nov 22
Pavlov dog training helped our puppy to become a well behaved puppy. Bella loved Ashlyn who was her trainer. Ashlyn is a great trainer who was strict but very loving with her.I would highly recommend this company if you want a well behaved dog.
04:10 21 Nov 22
After 3 failed training attempts over the course of a year with different trainers for leash pulling, we gave up and sent our stubborn frenchie to a 2 week board and train with Pavlov and Isabelle. He came back a changed man and our only regret is not doing it sooner. We wasted so much money with other trainers. Trav was unable to walk on a leash safely prior to going to Pavlov and now barely needs a leash at all. He walks in a "heel" and can even walk with a stroller. Isabelle was great and we enjoyed our 3 private lessons with her so much. We look forward to group classes with her in 2023! If you're on the fence of a board and train because of the cost, just do it. It's 100000% worth it. Best money we spent this year. Thank you Pavlov!
19:22 16 Nov 22
Like so many others, we got a puppy after we started working from home because we thought it would be so much easier. Wrong! We had a sweet little Bernedoodle, but we underestimated her energy levels and were in over our heads. After almost a year of slow progress watching YouTube videos and trying cheap group puppy classes, we weren't having friends over to our house and weren't camping or hiking like we envisioned with our dog life. Enter Pavlov, who we heard about from a friend. From the first interaction, we had a feeling that this could actually help us. They answered all our questions and were super clear on their process. They even let us add 10 days of regular boarding to the 2-week board and train program so that we could take an extended vacation. Alta worked with Isabelle, who could not have been better with our pup. Even now when we say "Isabelle", she will perk up with excitement. Isabelle gave us great updates the whole time that Alta was training with her, sending videos and helpful little notes. After the boarding portion of the program was over, we did 3 more training sessions that were personalized to what we wanted Alta to learn. What impressed us the most is that we didn't come home to a 'robot dog', we came home to the same sweet dog who loves to cuddle and bounce around - but she listens and is attentive to what we say and are doing. Everything we do with our dog is enjoyable now, from morning walks to hanging at a brewery to going camping or hiking. People have stopped us on walks to ask how we got her to be so well-behaved... and we can attribute that to working with Isabelle and Pavlov. We'd take her back all over, and we plan to board her there when we travel (even thought it's 45 minutes from home) because it was such a good experience. Thank you, Isabelle!
16:41 16 Nov 22
Virginia was wonderful. In two weeks Tess went from a crazy puppy to a well mannered dog. Virginia gets our highest recommendation. Her training is well worth the cost and time!
18:21 12 Nov 22
I have a husky who was almost 7 months at the time he was enrolled in the board and train program with Virgina, and I couldn’t be more happy with that investment. Due to their very stubborn nature, I was having trouble with him following simple commands, walking on/off leash & his recall was almost non existent. After training with Virgina he is a completely different dog! He is no longer distracted or pulling during our daily walks & I have the confidence to let him off leash during our hikes because of the amazing work she did with his recall. Virgina was such a great trainer. She was always available to answer any questions I had and she was very thorough when teaching me the commands and how to communicate with my pup. I would highly recommend her, this program and PAVLOV.
22:42 08 Nov 22
We got our first Puppy in July. We had adopted older dogs in the past, all well trained and so looking at a puppy we realized we probably needed some training - for us and the Standard bernedoodle we had who could get up to 70lbs. To avoid not being walked by our dog all the time we turned to Pavlov. Zoe and Quinn worked with Max, first in the puppy training with Zoe and then with Quinn at board and train while we had to be out of town.Max wouldn't leave the house the second week Zoe saw us. He now walks with me off leash and even was at Scheel's on a busy Saturday (on leash) but was the best behaved gentleman. The investment here is 100% worth it, even just to teach yourself what to do and expect.
23:54 06 Nov 22
Super worth it! Highly recommend Quinn as your trainer if you sign up, she’s the best and genuinely loves training dogs!We enrolled our Aussie (Cosmo) in Board & Train for two weeks after having behavioral issues that we needed help correcting. Cosmo learned a bunch of new commands to address these issues, did off-leash training for us to use while out on hiked and we learned a bunch of tricks to ensure his training continued after he came back home. It’s def a game changer and we can’t recommend enough!
19:05 30 Oct 22
Quinn at Pavlov was great! Highly recommend 😃
17:39 30 Oct 22
We enrolled our 3 year-old golden/husky dog, Gray, in their Board and Train with Virginia and it was the best investment we have ever made! Virginia was so welcoming when we dropped off Gray, answered all of our questions related to his stay, training, and communication to us during those 2 weeks. Gray was an anxious dog and would react walking on leash and did not listen well off-leash on our hikes. Gray is now so much calmer and listens to us on all of our off-leash adventures and daily walks. We had 3 training sessions with Virginia after picking up Gray and we could not be more impressed with how well he listens and follows our commands. Virginia did a phenomenal job teaching us how to communicate with Gray and how to advocate for him to facilitate trust with us, his owners. We only wish we would have enrolled Gray sooner! Thank you Virginia and PAVLOV, you are so talented and we appreciate you!
23:02 24 Oct 22
Our Viszla, Ruby, was enrolled in Board & Train and Quinn was our trainer. Viszlas are known for their extremely high-energy temperaments, and Ruby is such a well behaved girl now. She knew all the fundamentals after her three weeks of training and her impulse control is so improved. Quinn is very knowledgeable, professional and loves the dogs. She is great to work with and learn from. I would absolutely recommend her.
15:21 24 Oct 22
We had a great experience with PAVLOV specifically with trainer Quinn. We put our 7 month old German Shepherd through the Board and Train Level 1 Obedience course. She went in as a puppy that needed some help and she came out as a very obedient dog. Quinn took the time to train us to use her training to the full extent. She taught us ways to reinforce the training in an effort to reap the benefits for many years to come. Thank you to PAVLOV and specifically Quinn for all that you did for our Allie!
14:17 13 Oct 22
Kylah worked with me and my puppy and was absolutely fantastic. I couldn't believe the progress we made in such a short time given my pups age. She was easy to work with and very helpful whenever questions came up.
00:49 11 Oct 22
Our boy Rex was a wild one before Pavlov's dog training. We decided to enroll him in board and train, and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. Quinn worked with us to train not only Rex but us to transform Rex from a wild pup to a proper young gentleman.
16:41 07 Oct 22
Kylah went above and beyond. It's clear she really cares for the dogs and people she works with. She gives expert advice and makes sure you know all your options. A powerful combination of high expectations without judgement. Thank you!
23:31 06 Oct 22
Kylah really helped my reactive and anxious dog a lot. She helped us solve for how to leave him home alone and walk nicely in his leash. Such good skills we learned together.
18:44 03 Oct 22
Enrolled our two dogs into Board and Train had a great experience! We worked with Quinn and she helped address all of our needs and provided solutions for dealing with two rambunctious pups!
16:17 03 Oct 22
Pavlov is the best, I had my English bulldog Ozzie in the Board and Train program with Quinn. They are great and the progress made in a couple weeks was great.
15:27 25 Sep 22
Pavlov provided us with useful tools to correct our dog's behavior. Kylah Lenz is an effective trainer; she involved the entire family in the training process and gave us valuable tips to address specific issues. Our dog is happy and well-behaved.
19:15 19 Sep 22
We have had great experiences with Pavlov across the board, from privates to board and train. Our most recent experience has been with Quinn who did our pup's board and train program. She had a great rapport with our dog and was able to really structure our follow up sessions according to our needs and goals.
19:07 18 Sep 22
This is my second time using Pavlov and I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who is thinking about training. It is a day and night difference in my dogs behavior after going through the five sessions. This time around we worked with Kylah, she is amazing. Not only with the dogs but she also explains the training to us in a way that’s very easy to understand. My dog absolutely loved her and she made training something my dog really looked forward to. Thank you Kylah and Pavlov!
17:11 17 Sep 22
Kylah is an awesome dog trainer! Would highly recommend for any type of training your dog needs. She helped my dog on all things obedience but mostly leash training + leash aggression.
02:52 15 Sep 22
Ashlyn did a great job with Zeus! Our biggest challenge with him was walking - he would charge ahead and it made our walks difficult. Because of Pavlov, Zeus now heels close to us and is very mindful of where we are. That alone was worth every penny. Plus many more things. He was able to finish the level 2 training which we appreciate!!Our biggest points of constructive feedback are as follows:1. Zeus did not get a bath before we picked him up. Being in training and playing with other dogs for two straight weeks is dirty, but we had to give him multiple baths to get him clean. We think a bath at pickup would be a nice add.2. Although we did have follow up trainings with Ashlyn, between my fiancé and I, we would sometimes have different understandings of what we learned/what we were trained to do. Seeing that Pavlov has such a regimented set of commands and rules, we think it would be helpful to have a booklet or reference guide for the owners to stay consistent with what Zeus learned with the trainers.3. We think there is an opportunity for Pavlov to charge extra for more texts/photos. We really appreciated all of the texts and comments we got from the trainers, but would have paid extra for it! We loved the updates and thought the Instagram posts were awesome.
23:36 07 Sep 22
My hopes going into training were not too high. I have a leash reactive dog that pulled with every walk and would absolutely freak out when seeing a scooter or skateboard. After setting up private lessons with Kylah, Bella is a different dog. She is still jumpy around skateboards but now I know how to control and distract her in those situations. She will heel when walking and rarely pulls, if ever. The training was personalized to issues that Bella had. Was well worth the money.
17:45 29 Aug 22
I love my boxer/shepherd mix, Scully, but she doesn't behave well when confronted with noisy kids and loud surprises. Quinn Zablocki came to our rescue! As the president of the Pikes Peak Mycological Society it is my duty to guide people into the mountains of Colorado to hunt for mushrooms and learn about the forest. Quinn made it possible to involve Scully in club forays in a more positive way. She took great care to help me IN MY HOUSE so Scully could be both a good guard dog and also a welcoming presence to guests. Quinn and I and Sculls walked together and discussed every aspect of our relationship. Quinn listened to everything I had to say and remembered everything...giving me tools to go forward with my dog. I am very grateful and I highly recommend Quinn and Pavlov's.
19:33 24 Aug 22
We adopted Darla 6 months ago and had some behavioral issues we needed help correcting. Our trainer Zoe did a fabulous job working with us and Darla and she is now well on her way to becoming a fantastic family dog! We were very happy with the services offered, the ease of scheduling, and the fair pricing.
00:40 24 Aug 22
Wow. Roxanne was incredible and helped us completely transform our ~7 month pup. Now, he’s the best boy ever.No more stolen socks and shoes, he loose leash walks, comes when called, and is sooo much more polite. Roxanne was amazing, highly highly recommend!
20:01 20 Aug 22
This place is a life changer!!! Our pup, Nyx, was enrolled in the Board and Train 2 week course and Megan was our trainer. We’ve tried so many different trainers and spent so much money on training with no success. Nyx was reactive on leash and it was hard to take her anywhere without her lunging at other dogs.We recently moved to Denver and came across Pavlov Dog Training. We received updates throughout her stay and even got to watch training videos! We were shocked at the progress she has made. We can now take her on walks to parks and through the city without her reacting. We’ve even started off leash training which I never thought would be possible with Nyx.Our dog is so much happier now and we get to go on so many more outings. Megan definitely changed our life! I would recommend this place to anyone with a dog!
01:15 14 Aug 22
I could not have better things to say about Roxanne! I worked with her when my puppy, Rooney, was about 12-18 weeks. Rooney is my first dog and Roxanne helped create such a solid base for training her. I would absolutely not have made the progress I did early on without the training and guidance of Roxanne. Her lessons and homework were immensely helpful. More so, she gave me the foundation to build off as Rooney has become a teenage pup. I'm so grateful to Roxanne for her help and won't hesitate to turn to her in the future!
23:47 12 Jul 22
After a few attempts with less formal training, I realized my 1yr old Black Lab/Australian Cattle Dog mix (Dock) needed much more structure. We took five 1-hour training lessons with Kylah, and she was great! We basically started from scratch; each week, we had a slightly different focus for homework. Over the course of the training, Dock learned to make eye contact, come when called, walk well on the leash, and not jump/nibble on people. You will likely have to purchase an e-collar and some other items you may not already have. It is expensive but it is effective. Kylah was super helpful and responsive throughout the training.Don’t expect a miracle overnight- this training requires a lot of work on the dog owner’s part to be effective. Also, you may not always notice an immediate difference in your dog’s behavior- others had to tell me how much better he had gotten since the last time they’d seen him. If you have a high energy dog, I wouldn’t expect perfection. You can expect a markedly more obedient and respectful dog who is better with visitors and vastly improved at leash walking. If you are ready to work for it, go for it.
17:34 08 Jul 22
We worked with Roxanne through the "leash drama" program for our ~1 year old rescue pup who came to us with well-known leash drama. After unsuccessfully trying to manage the issue on our own for a few months, we decided to pay for the individualized training with Pavlov. It was worth every penny. Our dog now walks with a loose leash so well that we can take her places like Wash Park. When we started the training, Roxanne called Wash Park "the Olympics" for reactive dogs like ours. By the end, well, our dog is now an Olympian. Roxanne also helped us with a few other behaviors that we hadn't even identified as issues. Training with Pavlov was a wonderful investment for the happiness and safety of our pet - but also for our own sanity.
00:36 05 Jul 22
My husband and I loved our recent experience with Pavlov Dog Training. Our dog, Lager is seven years old and with a new baby on the way we knew we needed help. Lager couldn’t walk by another dog without becoming very reactive (raised hair, growling, barking). Our trainer, Roxanne, was incredible. She not only helped shape Lager’s behavior but also taught my husband and I along the way. Now, Lager doesn’t even give other dogs a second look while on leash. He has completely changed his behavior - making dog walks super enjoyable as a family. We could not be more thankful for the tools and methods we learned with Roxanne and the larger Pavlov Dog Training group. Thank you!
18:55 25 Jun 22
We just finished our puppy training with Zoe and couldn’t be more pleased. Our little guy is learning how to behave basic commands and we learned a helpful approach to corrections as needed. She was also willing to incorporate some tips and tricks for acclimating our older dog with the new pup. We would definitely recommend Zoe and Pavlov to anyone looking for a trainer and we look forward to continuing classes in the future.
01:56 03 Jun 22
Virginia was great with our dog Fitz. Not only did she transform our dog from somewhat out of control to always well behaved. She was always thorough and professional. A great listener and advisor and Fitz loves her.
17:33 01 Jun 22
I've used Pavlov Dog Training for private puppy and obedience training for my two-year-old Bulldog. Our trainer Roxanne was terrific at helping us clean up some misbehaving and developing new skills, which has been a rewarding experience to practice with my dog. We would recommend Roxanne and Pavlov to anyone looking for dog training.
02:33 01 Jun 22
Pavlov and Kylah were absolutely phenomenal! Niko is a rescue and around 6 months he started showing aggressive tendencies towards strangers and other pups. It was the worst when a stranger was coming into our home ( I live with 4 other girls, so as you can imagine this was happening a lot). He would aggressively bark at anyone new who entered our house or yard. It was scary for the new person and also created a lot of tension in my living environment. After being gone on a work trip for the weekend and having my roommate call me saying Niko had nipped one of her friends, I knew I needed to get help.Kylah was absolutely amazing!! After five sessions with her, Niko now calmly and quietly waits for new strangers in the house to walk up to to him and to top it off - he genuinely wants to say hi to them and feel loved! He no longer seems so scared and guarded.While it wasn’t the focus of the training, Kylah also dramatically improved Nikos behavior on walks. He used to pull a ton and lie down to say hi to other dogs when walking. With Kylah’s help, he now heals on and off leash!!!I am so thankful for Kylah and all of her help and expertise 🙂
23:28 30 May 22
Couldn't be happier! Kylah, our trainer, was very thorough and communicative, answered each one of our billion questions, and set us up to have a puppy that's growing in to a fantastic dog.Thank you Kylah and Pavlov!
14:50 30 May 22
We adopted a three year old pit bull and after five sessions with Kylah, Clementine is walking at heel and understands recall which is what we were hoping for! Overall a great experience!
19:27 28 May 22
Kylah is amazing dog trainer. My puppy is doing amazing at only 6 months and wouldn't have been the same without her expertise, professionalism, love towards my pup. Very grateful to have to have worked with Kylah, and highly recommend requesting her.
21:29 26 May 22
Our family has had a great experience at Pavlov. We have done both private lessons with Zoe while our puppy was still young as well as Board and Train with Megan B once she was old enough. Our experience was positive and we could see results. The pace was good as it takes time to practice and you and your pup can only handle so much at a time. The philosophy feels good, the positive reinforcement and rationale makes sense!
23:11 25 May 22
Roxanne was such a pleasure to work with. She took the time and patience to help me train me and my dog in a way that explained not only the how but the why behind the training. She made sure to give time to allow me to write down everything and plenty of time to practice during her training sessions. Not to mention that my dog loved spending time with her. I not only met all my training objectives but even received more training than I was expecting.
15:40 25 May 22
Couldn’t recommend working with PAVLOV, particularly Roxanne, enough. After doing a 6 week in home training program with Roxanne, I can genuinely say the results we saw were incredible. My relationship with my dog became so much stronger and I came to truly enjoy spending time training him and giving him the happiest life possible. His house manners, leash skills, obedience, and overall behavior increased dramatically. We loved it so much, we will likely do another set of training for off leash and advanced skills. Worth every cent!Thanks, Roxanne!
00:24 19 May 22
We are so happy that we chose Pavlov Dog Training for our Mini Schnauzer Luna! We were looking into some basic obedience training after noticing some repeated undesirable behaviors from our puppy - like leash pulling and playful (but annoying and painful) nipping. Several friends of ours suggested Pavlov and we're so happy that we chose them to help us train our pup! Roxanne, our trainer, was absolutely wonderful- she was friendly and loving with our dog but also provided us with actionable tools to mitigate the unwanted behaviors. We have noticed a complete shift within our dog and our relationship has improved overall! I cannot recommend Pavlov and Roxanne enough!
21:25 17 May 22
Worked with Roxanne and she was amazing! Very knowledgeable about everything and explains the reasons why she does things the way she does and offers many routes depending on how you prefer to train your pup. Not only did my puppy come a long way during training with her she also set me up for continued success by training me on how to reinforce all the things we learned as well as steps to train new things. I felt it was worth every penny after the first lesson so highly recommended
19:18 16 May 22
We worked with Zoe for our puppy’s (Roxie) training and had a great experience. Because of Zoe, Roxie is much better on the leash, goes quietly into crate, doesn’t jump up on people as much and follows some simple commands. Her manners have improved so much and this training gives me tools/resources on how to handle her craziness. We plan to do more training with Zoe once Roxie is a little older!
04:32 14 May 22
Virginia with Pavlov is the best! We are so thankful to her. We did two weeks of board and train for our Golden, Ella with Virginia. Routinely she sent videos with updates on Ella’s progress which we appreciated. Ella who has always been lovable and overly sociable is now such a pleasure. I so enjoy taking her on walks instead of her walking me. We always get positive comments on how well behaved Ella is. Pavlov training with Virginia was the best thing we have done for Ella and for our family.
21:09 13 May 22
Cannot recommend Pavlov Dog Training (Kylah) enough! She really helped me and my 5 month old golden. From walking on the leash to recall, Kylah was a great teacher and answered all my questions. I can only say good things about her and Pavlov Dog Training!
03:20 13 May 22
When we got our puppy we were a bit overwhelmed and needed help fast. We were expecting a baby in 4 months and knew we wanted our dog to have the basics, plus some manners (especially on his leash), down. Kylah was absolutely amazing and helped us become more comfortable with the puppy training. We knew we still needed more so Kylah came back for obedience training. Kylah wasn’t just there for the dog but us too. There were frustrations we were having and she stepped in and immediately addressed them so we had the tools we needed. After hard work we are the people walking the well behaved dog. I hope we don’t need to sign up for additional classes but if we do we definitely will be calling Kylah back! Thank so much for your quick responses, affirmations, being a sounding board, and time even when you weren’t training Palmer.
14:49 11 May 22
We had a great experience working with Zoe. I have a 1 year old golden retriever that is stubborn and struggled with leash walking, jumping on people, etc. After our training with Zoe, we have all the tools and information we need to continue to train our pup! We are actually enjoying walks with the dog and don’t have anymore counter surfing or jumping!
03:05 05 May 22
Great trainer. Engaged, invested and communicative.
19:39 03 May 22
We used Pavlov for puppy training for our rambunctious German Shepherd. Zoe was great and very helpful. She gave us so many ideas to help with behavior and basic commands as well as leash walking. I highly recommend them for any dog training needs.
04:54 23 Apr 22
We adopted our dog from a rescue a few months back and were really excited with the process of becoming dog owners. It was great the first few weeks but then our dog began to show aggressive behaviors towards other dogs well on leash, even though he was fine with other dogs when he was off leash. We were at a loss with what to do because we live in a neighborhood that has a lot of other dogs in it so each walk became more and more of a struggle which just made him more stressed out. Luckily we had some friends who has just finished up doing some training through Pavlov and highly recommended it. Our process with them was great from the get go, they talked us through a few different programs and asked us all sorts of questions about what we were dealing with and looking for. They then set us up with one of their trainers, Zoe, and she was great as well. She was a perfect mix of supportive and knowledgeable when it came to all sorts of different training methods and dogs. Over the course of our training our dog went from pulling on the leash and barking at other dogs to staying calm and not even acknowledging other dogs existences at times, which has made our walks and daily life with him a lot more enjoyable since we no longer have to worry about him every time we go out. She also gave us a few other training tips to work on with him just to make him a more behaved dog in general, which has also really helped. I highly recommend both Pavlov, and Zoe as a trainer.

We have nothing but amazing things to say about our board and train experience with Virginia! Our 11mo old pup was very shy and nervous, dragged us on walks, and jumped up on people she knew when they came in the door. Virginia took the time to get to know her and trained her at her own pace. She was great at communicating with us and sent video updates as well as instructions for us. She is friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and a huge animal lover. After the board and train, our dog has learned all her manners, walks at a perfect heel, and her confidence has grown tremendously. We are so happy that we chose this company and had Virginia as our trainer!! Highly recommend!

We just finished our 5-session package with Kylah, and it was a truly transformative experience. We loved the thoughtful, bite-sized sequencing of homework -- it really made training so manageable. You can fit it in while you're making lunch or doing dishes or all sorts of things. Kylah's instruction is so thorough and clear and easily applied. We adopted our dog, Polly, and had her for a couple of weeks before our first session with Kylah, and we saw an immediate change that has only gotten better. Polly is an amazing dog, and Kylah and Pavlov really set us all up for great success! Can't recommend highly enough!
19:57 17 Apr 22
Kylah and the folks at Pavlov are amazing! We immediately felt more comfortable and confident training training and caring for our dog. Kylah was very responsive to questions and issues when they came up. We loved working with her and our pup was happy to see her every time she arrived!
21:16 15 Apr 22
Kylah is an amazing dog trainer and she helped so much with my reactive dog. I love that she came to my house and met us at places that we go in order to train him in his environment. She targeted his specific issues and made huge progress in 5 sessions. He is now more confident and comfortable going places and to be home with. I now feel so much more comfortable having him meet other people and dogs. I highly recommend Pavlov! This training is so much more tailored to our needs compared to the other programs I looked at. Well worth the money. So appreciative of Kylah!!
21:48 14 Apr 22
Kylah is amazing and has helped us tremendously with our puppy German shepherd. It is obvious that Kylah is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to training and different techniques, especially for the larger, more challenging (and rewarding!) breeds. We have had our 5 sessions with Kylah and are going to add on more to work on more advanced training when our GSD gets a little older. Highly recommend Kylah and Pavlov!
21:16 13 Apr 22
Worth every penny. Kylah was wonderful working with my four month old golden retriever and he has shown immense progress since he began the program. Not only was Kylah knowledgable and resourceful but extremely friendly as well. Highly recommend.

If you're questioning what to do with your dog, look no further! I would never give my dog up but I settled on the fact I was never going to be able to walk her or take her anywhere besides family homes. After several other training programs, I found Pavlov and enrolled Dolly in to their Board and Train program. Best program ever! I have a dog friends and family want to be around and I'm not embarrassed to bring to functions. Megan did incredible work and I cannot thank her enough! This is the dog I always wanted. (plus they may make your dog look like a model)
15:31 11 Apr 22
Cannot recommend Pavlov Dog Training and Kylah enough! We came to Pavlov after a long process of searching for the best dog training in Denver. They really tailor the whole experience to your dogs' needs and work great with the work from home schedules.Our initial request was to have Rae stop jumping to play at other dogs while walking, coming when called while outdoors with tons of distractions, and general obedience. Kylah had a great plan for us and checked every box! We now have Rae walking right next to us, sprinting to us whenever called outdoors, and being such a good dog! We plan on signing up for off-leash training at some point in the future as well.Highly recommend these guys!
15:26 11 Apr 22
Pavlov Dog Training and Megan Bonifacius are expert dog trainers who have the experience and good nature to work with all types of dogs and personalities. They were so helpful in training our Australian Cattle Dog at 7 months to learn the basics and manners. We are so much happier and less stressed and I would highly recommend both Pavlov and Megan to anyone in need of training.
15:36 09 Apr 22
Had a great experience at Pavlov with duchess. We adopted duchess who had no leash training and some barking issues at dog parks. Now she walks perfectly with us and is a treat at the dog park.
19:26 07 Apr 22
Just completed puppy training with Kylah. It was a great experience and I couldn't be happier with the program!I am a first time dog owner, and I needed guidance on training/ puppy development. My little guy did so well and he's the star of the show everywhere he goes! He's more behaved/ obedient/ attentive than I could have imagined.The training was in-depth and very helpful. I highly recommend Kylah and the Pavlov program. Beyond thankful I made the investment.Thanks Pavlov and Kylah!- Nigel & Rudie

Roxanne is my dog trainer. We were able to address all of my pups issues in the 5 training sessions. I followed Roxanne’s training protocols and with persistence, patience, and consistency my dog progressed very quickly. No more lunging, she walks at a perfect heel even with distractions, and no more barking at people walking by the house. My dog is much calmer and happier. I’m excited to move onto more fun training with my pup.
17:20 04 Apr 22
We enrolled our 6 month old Newfoundland puppy in Pavlov’s 2 week board and train program. We are so grateful for our trainer, Megan, who turned our giant puppy who was a terrible walker into a politely behaved gentleman. Before his board and train, walking him was a very stressful and discouraging endeavor (i.e. pulling, lunging, jumping in front of cars/bikes, sometimes even refusing to move) and he had no manners when he was out in public no matter how much training we did with him. Megan turned our giant fur monster into a well mannered dream pup who impresses everyone now. Walking him and taking him in public has never been so enjoyable. This has been by far the best investment we have made in our puppy and will continue to enroll our future family dogs in this program. Thank you for your amazing work/magic, Megan! We would be lost without you and can’t wait to enroll him in the off leash program with you!
00:57 04 Apr 22
We just finished our final training session for our 1 yr old mini aussie and we are extremely grateful for Kylah and Pavlov!Our puppy now is much more responsive to our verbal commands whether it’s on our walks or around the house since when we started, and we have seen the week- week improvements almost instantly.After finishing our training we have the correct equipment to keep her behavior improving, and we as owners learned a lot on what to do vs what not to do.Highly would recommend anyone considering dog/puppy training to use Pavlov.
13:50 30 Mar 22
Roxanne did an incredible job with our dog Wallace! He's overly friendly and wanted to say hi to and jump on every person and dog that came within eye sight of him so it was impossible to have him off leash. We live in the mountains so definitely want to be able to take him hiking and running off leash. After his 2-week session with Roxanne he's doing incredible. Not only is he walking nicely on the leash without pulling but he's ignoring other dogs and is able to be off leash already as well. We are so so thrilled with his progress!!
23:31 29 Mar 22
We loved working with Roxanne at PAVLOV. She was friendly and helpful, scheduling was easy, and our hour-long sessions were productive and valuable. Roxanne also left us with plenty of activities to continue training our puppy throughout the week in between sessions. Our pup is so much more responsive and well-behaved thanks to Roxanne — but maybe more importantly, we as her owners now have the tools to be the best possible pup parents.
16:08 24 Mar 22
I worked with Roxanne and she was fantastic! Our problem German Shepherd showed remarkable improvement in just a few sessions with Roxanne. She has a very professional and experience based approach to helping people to train their dogs, will be direct and honest with you, and is even willing to use her own dogs as part of the process to help train issues away. I would highly recommend her and PAVLOV training.
15:00 24 Mar 22
We are so grateful for Roxanne and Pavlov Dog training for our mini aussie, Riley! Before we started the training, we had problems with Riley's barking and were at a loss for how to control it. Roxanne was able to provide us successful strategies to mitigate the barking and behave appropriately around guests. She also taught us some fun games for Riley...so it wasn't just all discipline!Riley is now a much better dog!Thank you again! Would highly recommend!
03:03 23 Mar 22
Our dog, Daisy, was in the “Board and Train” program at PAVLOV. While I’d love to say that she did so well because she’s such an intelligent dog, I know it was thanks to Blake. I think he’s a dog whisperer! Daisy spent 1 week at PAVLOV and came home to us well-behaved and easy to handle. More importantly, when she wasn’t so well behaved, we now knew how to fix it. After Daisy was trained, the time Blake took to train myself and my family was invaluable. He made the sessions fun and was extremely patient with all of us. The instruction was clear and explanations were simple so that now, when Daisy has any behavior issue, we are comfortable dealing with it using techniques Blake taught. I truly appreciate that we are able to continue to contact him if new questions arise. Big thanks PAVLOV!
00:00 22 Mar 22
I enrolled my 90 lb pit/akita, Hendrix, in Board and Train Level 1 in January and was lucky enough to get Blake as his trainer. I’m expecting a baby in a few weeks and needed to get Hendrix a base training in obedience before his arrival. When I picked him up, I was stunned at how far Hendrix had come training wise in only 2 weeks! Not only that, but Blake provided me with all the tools I needed to keep up with Hendrix’s training and I am so confident that he will do amazingly once baby arrives. Thanks Blake!!
21:41 19 Mar 22
We are thrilled with our PAVLOV Dog Training experience! We initially sought out training to help us develop the tools to support our dog in her confidence around other people and dogs. We had done dog training when she was a puppy but felt we needed a stronger foundation. Kylah helped us to do this and so much more. Kylah's knowledge, professionalism, and willingness to cater to our needs really allowed each of our session's to be productive and relevant to achieving our goals. Our dog has her reactions under control when meeting & seeing others, doesn't pull on leash (by our last session we were working on off leash training!), and we now have strategies to consistently correct/support her moving forward. Thank you!
16:27 19 Mar 22
We adopted an 8-month old Mastiff who needed a LOT of work with manners when he met people and dogs, as well as more consistency on general obedience. Galileo went through Pavlov's board and train with Megan, and then Megan met with my husband and I one-on-one. Her firm guidance helped Galileo learn how to greet people, how to park it in his bed when we're cooking, and how to keep calm on walks when he sees other dogs. Megan's work with us helped us unlearn bad habits, too! We know how to correct Galileo so that he understands when we want him to heel and, in general, when he isn't following a command quite right. Walks are so much more fun, and he can hang out with us in coffee shops.
13:21 19 Mar 22
Working with Roxanne was wonderful. My dog had some leash aggression issues that we focused on and I saw improvement by our third session! My dog (and I) now have the tools to navigate fear effectively.
21:27 16 Mar 22
We had a fantastic experience with Virginia! We took our 1 year old dog, Lucy, to the 2-week board and train and we’re so happy with the results. Almost all of her naughty habits (counter surfing, demand barking, etc) are gone, she’s a wonderful leash walker, and she’s even able to be off-leash with her e-collar! Virginia provided wonderful updates during training and our follow up sessions were super helpful. She’s extremely communicative and flexible if we ever had questions, we couldn’t recommend Virginia more!
01:49 12 Mar 22
Pavlov has been amazingly structured, flexible, and easy to work with. Kylah has been such a pleasure to work with. She is very knowledgeable and we have seen such strong progress with our 2 pups. Both are very well behaved now, listen to commands, and are much easier to handle. We can’t thank Kylah and Pavlov enough.
21:41 02 Mar 22
I had a terrific experience with dog trainer Megan! She was great at sending updates so that I knew my pup Jax was doing alright. She went above and beyond trying out different probiotics for his sensitive tummy. Not to mention, I have a perfectly trained puppy now! Jax's behavior on leash is night and day, he doesn't pull me anymore or eat stuff off the ground. He's even great off leash with his e-collar! Thanks to Megan and the team for the great training, worth every penny!
22:02 26 Feb 22
Kylah has been a pleasure to work with and has done a great job getting our puppy trained. She has given us useful skills going forward and helped us trouble shoot our dogs quirks. Kylah is knowledgeable and evidence based in her approach. We would recommend Pavlov and Kylah to anyone looking for a dog trainer.
18:02 22 Feb 22
I have an 8 month old Maltipoo named Moose that I wanted to work on some house manners and basic training with, and I chose this training company based on the positive reviews, and let me tell you, there are this many great reviews for a reason! It was an amazing experience for us!!! Zoe is such a great trainer and she helped my little pup become such a well behaved little gentleman. She was so patient with my pup but also with me as the owner… I needed just as much training as he did haha. We were able to take away so many useful tools and tricks and I am so proud to have a dog I can take with me places without worrying he will go crazy. The methods they use work super well and I have recommended Zoe to a number of coworkers and friends already. I’m so glad I did this!!! Thank you Zoe!!
18:37 16 Feb 22
My pup Rockie and I had an incredible experience with Pavlov! When I adopted Rockie from a rescue, she was well-behaved but needed some work on breaking a few habits (jumping on people, jumping the fence, excessive barking), leash walking, and recall. We worked with Kylah on basic obedience and e-collar training and she is amazing! Within a few sessions, Rockie was already behaving so much better and by the end of 5 sessions, she is close to a perfect pup! I cannot recommend Kylah enough - she was not only so good with my dog, but also great at helping me learn how to train and work with Rockie. Also highly recommend the e-collar training - so helpful! Worth every penny. I have no doubt that Kylah can help with whatever your goals are for your pup!
02:01 16 Feb 22
By far the best training my sweet deaf boy could have received in just 2 weeks! Megan knows her stuff, understands dogs, and deaf dogs at that, and is a great teacher for the doggie parents. This is by far the best money I've spent on any dog to date!! Thank you so much, Megan, for helping my boy be his best self so we can live our best lives together!! ❤
13:39 10 Feb 22
We were paired with Roxanne to help out our puppy Basil in terms of obedience and she was nothing short of amazing. She truly listened to everything that we wanted done and explained thoroughly how the training was going to go with him and the steps we were going to take. She made everything so clear and concise that I would recommend her for training to everyone. Keep up the great work!
20:28 07 Feb 22
We had a terrific experience with Kylah and the 5 session behavior program at Pavlov. We were having 2 major problems with Torrey - excessive barking at dogs/people/trucks when she was in our fenced in yard and serious barking/jumping on anyone who came into our home or yard. Not only did Kylah give us the tools and training to fix those two problems, she also taught Torrey how to reliably heel, sit, stay, "park it" and come. Kylah knows exactly what to do for each situation, and the more we practiced with Torrey, the faster she got it (you DO need to practice!) So glad we went with Pavlov - we are thrilled with the changes in Torrey. We are no longer stressing about her behavior.
22:43 05 Feb 22
My girlfriend and I put our 1 year old chocolate Lab, Oso, into Pavlov Board and Train Program with trainer Virginia. Prior to training, Oso was a very rambunctious and reactive dog. He pulled so bad on the leash my girlfriend could barely walk him. After training, he knows all the basic commands and we can easily and safely walk him on and off leash. The hand over sessions were really educational and thorough. Virginia was so great with Oso, we HIGHLY recommend her.
20:13 26 Jan 22
We completed the 2 week Board & Train program with Virginia Lowis. We HIGHLY recommend this program with Virginia! We have a 2 year old Old English Sheepdog/poodle mix and were hoping to hone his skills with heeling, off-leash walking, and greeting friends/family at the door without jumping. We were AMAZED at the progress our dog made during this 2-week program with these skills and more!Virginia sent us videos every few days with progress (and instructions that have been incredibly helpful for us to refer back to) - within 3 days, our pup was heeling and waiting in his crate/at the front door until told he was told it was "ok" to move.He is also now a perfect gentleman when our friends/family come through the front door. Virginia taught us the command "back", and he knows this means to wait patiently in the living room until guests are settled inside our home.The 2-week program also comes with additional 3 training sessions (to help teach us humans all the things the pup has learned during the board & train program.) Virginia came to our home to continue training and help answer any questions that had come up since taking our dog home. We also met at a park to practice off-leash training and recall.This program was so worth it. We are so grateful for Virginia and everything she has taught us. We highly, highly recommend Virginia with PAVLOV.

My partner and I adopted our puppy, Keeley, a few months ago and we have been SO impressed with Pavlov. We did the Obedience 1 and also the Board and Train programs, both of which were absolutely tremendous. Keeley's Obedience 1 trainer, Kylah, was professional and flexible with her schedule when Keeley hurt herself at the dog park and had to be out of training for several weeks. Then Megan, her Board and Train trainer, took Keeley to a *whole new level* when she worked Keeley in December (honestly, she is amazingly well behaved now). Further, Megan has been extremely helpful and responsive in the weeks since we picked Keeley up. On the whole, I think Pavlov is one of the best investments you can make in your dog in Denver area, and I would recommend them to anyone in a heartbeat. My partner and I are so happy we chose Pavlov.

Eliminate jumping, whining, and leash lunging quickly! Our pup knew the basic action oriented commands and did well with positive reinforcement training, BUT there were still a few areas, such as lunging at geese, where we needed some help! Roxanne was amazing and efficient. She taught us methods to quickly eradicate unwanted behaviors. She makes a huge effort to make sure that you are comfortable with training methods and understand how to apply lessons yourself.
15:16 24 Jan 22
Absolutely worth the investment. Walks used to be so painful – pulling, not listening, eating everything within reach – but training has made such a difference. Roxanne, our trainer, always took the time to explain things clearly and helped us understand the why behind behaviors and commands. Can't recommend enough!
17:50 21 Jan 22
We sent our 1.5 year old bernedoodle, Ernie, to a two week board-and-train with Megan to focus on on-leash and off-leash training, as well as basic house manners. We are so grateful to Megan and the rest of the training team for working with Ernie. He came back from the two weeks very much himself, but much better behaved in all the areas we were hoping for. For example:Before: jumping on guests, ignoring the command "come" unless there was a visible treat, constantly pulling and sniffing on walks, couldn't be let off leash since he would go off on his ownAfter: no jumping at all, comes when called, heels by our left side while walking on-leash, and stays within a comfortable radius when let off-leash and returns quickly when called backThe human lessons were just as important for us as the dog lessons. Megan took the time to teach my husband and me how to reinforce the good behaviors and correct the bad ones. We NEVER thought we would be comfortable taking Ernie off-leash, and don't think we would have been able to hike or go to the off-leash dog park without sending him to Pavlov. Thank you!
