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.

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.

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.
21:24 20 Apr 22
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!
19:08 20 Apr 22
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.
19:54 13 Apr 22
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
15:30 07 Apr 22
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.
20:07 25 Jan 22
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!

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!

I adopted River about three months ago, and while she was pretty well behaved, there were some issues that I needed help addressing (demand barking, biting at furniture, leash discipline, come when called, etc). After trying to learn from YouTube and looking around at a few other training companies, I’m so glad I found PAVLOV!!Kylah was wonderful to work with, and helped us personalize training to our needs. She quickly got to know River’s personality and figured out what she would respond to best, and I’m so happy with the results. She is walking well, responding to commands, and overall being the great dog I knew she could be!

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!
18:59 13 Jan 22
Roxanne is an incredible trainer! She helped us with basic obedience as well as off-leash training for our large breed puppy. In addition, she helped us curb barking issues we had for years with our two small adult dogs. Our house has been transformed! We now have quiet, well behaved happy dogs. I highly recommend Pavlov and especially Roxanne.

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!
19:30 11 Jan 22
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!
15:37 06 Jan 22
Zoe was very professional and helped us take our newly-adopted, 3-year-old black lab from a nutball during walks to totally under control. I can’t express how happy it makes me to take the dog on a walk now. I went from being afraid of how he’d behave to feeling relaxed and in control. I take Shadow for longer walks without hesitation. All the other commands that were taught were also very helpful but for me it’s about having that comfort when I’m outside with my buddy.
04:23 03 Jan 22
Working with Roxanne with our Newfypoo puppy has been an amazing experience. PAVLOV came highly recommended from a friend who has one of the best behaved dogs I know. Roxanne was very professional and patient with both myself and our dog. I truly do not believe our dog would be as good as she is today without training from Roxanne. Her training was very thorough and easy to do once she was not with us. I am looking forward to using Roxanne and PAVLOV again in the near future for additional training.
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.
16:24 30 Dec 21
Roxanne is an amazing, amazing puppy trainer and owner coach. She is professional, articulate, prompt, not to mention she is a great person for this work. We had a lot of puppy learning with our new Portuguese Water Dog and she walked us through along the way and gave us amazing tools with which we saw immediate results. Sammy is a great pup - and thanks to Roxanne - he is even better than we hoped. Andrew & Denise
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.
03:14 08 Dec 21
We learned so much from our trainer Zoe. We’ve had dogs all our lives but needed some of our skills refreshed with our new puppy. Zoe was very knowledgeable and was very easy to work with. I would highly recommend Pavlov and specifically Zoe if you’re looking for some help with your pup. We’re so glad we found her and so is our Winnie!
15:10 06 Dec 21
We are so happy we chose Pavlov for our dog's (Lucy) training! We adopted our dog 8 months ago and she is an adult rescue with a bit of trauma. We had tried a few dog classes but were still having some serious issues. Lucy was very reactive to guests coming to the house and was pulling a lot on her walks. Roxanne was the best and gave us a step by step plan to work on all of our issues. She was incredibly kind, understanding and patient with us. Even after the first session, we felt like it was completely worth it for the price! We actually had concrete solutions after week one and it only got better from there! After our last session, I truly couldn't believe the things Lucy was able to do. We are so appreciative of Roxanne and cannot recommend her and Pavlov enough!!
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!
01:08 23 Nov 21
We just finished a 5 session training program with Zoe and can't thank her enough. Our 3 year old Berner has dealt with anxiety since he was puppy, resulting in a lot of difficulty with on leash walking, unnecessary barking and general lack of confidence. Zoe handled the training with professionalism and enthusiasm and now we are working with a much healthier and happier dog. Highly recommend!
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!
16:14 20 Nov 21
Roxanne was awesome! I learned so much and my dog responded so well to all the training exercises. She was always on time, responding to my texts and flexible with my schedule. I get so many compliments on how well trained my 6 month old Dalmatian is and it's all thanks to her! 10/10 recommend.
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.
18:32 11 Nov 21
I contacted Pavlov dog training for my puppy Benji. At the time he was chewing on rugs, house plants, and he didn’t know his name. Our trainer, Roxanne gave us all the tools we needed to help train Benji and he has come such a long way! I’m so happy I used Pavlov and would definitely recommend them
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.
18:42 10 Nov 21
Before we started training with Zoë we were lost and didn’t know what to do to help our dog. Our dog Nova was beginning to be leash reactive towards other dogs and we didn’t want that to continue to worsen. Once we started working with Zoë she showed us how to work with our pup to give her the proper tools to succeed and build her confidence around other dogs. She answered the thousands of questions we asked and was always there to help us when we needed it. We now have so much more confidence in our pup and in how we train her. She no longer reacts towards dogs and walks very calmly on leash even at busy parks! We’re so proud of how far she has come, and even trust her off leash in situations we never thought we could. Thank you so much Zoë!!!
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!
01:39 06 Nov 21
I have had a great experience with Pavlov’s leash drama program and the trainer that worked with me, Mara. My dog, Thor is 9 years old and recently went through an unsuccessful board and training with a different company. He had trouble with lunging and barking at other dogs on walks and in my apartment building. After working with Mara for only 4 weeks Thor stopped barking at other dogs and was able to comfortably ride in an elevator with them. Thor was also able to learn a proper heel command which has been amazing for our walks. I am thankful for the quality training provided by Mara, I definitely recommend Pavlov!
17:30 01 Nov 21
I would definitely recommend Pavlov -and ask for Mara Soo as the trainer. She not only had great ideas for training our puppy, but also advising us. Soggy was so happy to see her and especially to go on training walks. He has learned to heel when walking and sit, wait till invited out at doors and elevators -just a few of my favorite training tips. Mara has fantastic tips for any problem area you ask her advise on. Great experience!
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!
04:09 25 Oct 21
We absolutely loved our experience with our trainer Zoe and Pavlov Dog Training. After the very first session we immediately started to notice a difference in behavior with our (spaz) Border Collie, Lola! Zoe is extremely knowledgeable and professional, and was able to provide help with Lola’s trickiest behaviors quickly and with ease. I recommend Pavlov, and specifically Zoe, to everyone!
21:28 24 Oct 21
We had a great experience working with Zoë for our 9-10mo puppy for the basic obedience 1 class. We contacted Pavlov initially for help with loose leash walking and house manners but Zoë went above and beyond and exceeded expectations. She helped train us and our dog with not only loose leash walking and doggy house manners but also with recall, place training, and heel. There is so much out there to learn online for dog training but it is invaluable to have someone there to answer questions and correct my own behaviors I didn’t even realize I was doing. Zoë is a great listener and has a great demeanor with both people and dogs! We had a great experience and I will definitely recommend Pavlov to others. It was worth every penny.
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!
16:52 12 Oct 21
Zoe was great, she came to my home which was really convenient for my busy schedule. She was always on time and is very knowledgable and fun to work with. Each week my puppy and I learned something new and she offered new techniques and tools to help improve my puppy's behavior. I highly recommend this program and I cant wait for our next set of lessons.
22:42 11 Oct 21
We worked with Roxanne who did a fantastic job of training us with our five-year old adopted Golden Retriever. We truly appreciated her professionalism, helpful instructions and encouragement. Our dog made great strides and Roxanne really helped us to think about training from our dog's perspective. Would highly recommend her!
22:22 07 Oct 21
We so appreciated the assistance we got from Pavlov (specifically, Roxanne) in training our ornery 4 year old Shepard mix. Roxanne was responsive, communicative, and listened to our requests and needs throughout the training process. She helped tweak behaviors that have made a huge difference in the ease of our day, and structured the program around what we specifically needed, instead of a one size fits all approach. Would highly recommend!
19:57 07 Oct 21
PAVLOV Dog Training provided a great match for Cash, at the time a 6 month old golden retriever, and I. Roxanne was extremely professional and addressed all my goals in the first session. As the sessions went on, new goals were added in addition to accomplishing the original goals. Cash went from a puppy who didn't see me, the owner, as the commander along with having issues walking on the leash. Within the first session, Cash knew that I was the one to call the shots. By the end of the training Cash had learned to "come when called" off leash, warning words for completion of play, leave me be when washing TV or at the desk, and how to walk on a leash with ignoring most distractions. I highly recommend this company and Roxanne for your dog!
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!!!!!

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!

We worked with Shannon and have nothing but great things to say about her help training our two new additions. We learned tons of useful tips and she was really helpful with methods to train two puppies at the same time.

Highly highly recommend! We worked with Mara Soo to train our puppy over 8 sessions (obedience 1 and 2). She’s so good at training dogs but also at training people how to train their dogs. Our puppy is now 7 months old and so well behaved that people stop us on the street to comment on what a good dog he is.Mara is super personable and really fun to work with. We love that she came to our house so we could do training sessions in our real life setting. I’m so glad we found Pavlov and Mara, would recommend to anyone for any dog breed!

WOW. I cannot speak highly enough about PAVLOV and our trainer Shannon. She changed mine and my dog's lives. My puppy had terrible separation anxiety and within the very first session, Shannon was able to help me calm him so I could actually leave the house without the neighbors calling me! Shannon has helped me to become a better, more confident dog owner, and the work has truly paid off! Thank you Pavlov and Shannon!!

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.

I worked with Mara Soo over the course of several weeks with my dog Bella and am so happy with the results. Highly recommend her program with PDT and the private teaching.Mara provided me with the tools to work with Bella on everything that I requested and I feel confident continuing her training on my own now. Bella was a rescue with a great personality but no training and Mara helped me connect with her and feel confident building a relationship with my new dog. I would readily work with Mara again moving forward if Bella and I wanted to learn new things.

I got the lovely chance of working with Mara Soo from Pavlov and it was one of the best decisions I have made & well worth the money spent! My 1yo Aussie was a handful and very leash aggressive with other dogs on walks (hard to avoid with us being right in the city & in a big apartment building) and did not walk nicely on a leash which gave me severe anxiety every time I had to take him out.After 5 sessions with Mara Soo, Wrigley went from aggressively barking & lunging at other dogs/people and pulling on his leash to walking by my side on a loose leash and not even staring at other dogs for more than 5 seconds on our walks more than half the time (he still has his bad days tho). He is a brand new dog! Mara gave us many tips/tricks for other issues we had around the house as well and took time to work with our other dog too.Very professional and knowledgeable and always took the time to listen to my concerns/questions! 10/10 recommend!!

My Aussie shepherd Tanner had an unfortunate incident that resulted in animal control knocking on my front door. While out for a walk, a small child rode by on a stryder bicycle. Being a herder, he took the opportunity to nip the child. It was serious enough to puncture the skin. Admittedly, all Tanner did was pull, pull, pull and I was in need of professional guidance. Pavlov taught me how to walk him properly and they talked me down when I was concerned about what the city might do with my boy. My dogs are my surrogate children. Now Tanner is walking by my side and children are no longer at risk. Post Pavlov training and now I'm proud of my boy!

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!
21:31 23 Sep 21
I highly recommend PAVLOV for your dog training needs! We have been working with Mara since our puppy was 12 weeks old. He is now 7 months old and has been through both obedience 1 and obedience 2. We are thrilled with his progress - he is amazing walking on a leash and can consistently stay in heel and we are now progressing to off leash walking. He is also very well-behaved and has an amazing recall - he comes every time he is called. It is also great that they train in your home and neighborhood so that your dog can learn in their environment.Mara was really great to work with - she had a strong understanding of what would work best for our dog in particular based on his personality. She geared the lessons to meet our needs and concerns and she was always a phone call or text away if we had questions between lessons. Be consistent with your dog and practice the training skills between lessons and you will see amazing results! 100% worth the investment!

Pavlov Dog Training did a wonderful job training my German shepherd!My German shepherd has learned a strong foundation of obedience and can heel while walking politely through the neighborhood while walking on my left side. He can walk through crowds of people at the farmer's market. After obedience, he was taught a formal retrieve and he'll consistently retrieve objectives and bring them to my hand including 'fetch a cold beverage'!

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!!!

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.

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!

We recently worked with Roxanne at Pavlov Dog Training for our Golden Retriever puppy. We found the training techniques taught to be very effective and practical for day to day life. We get compliments for our very well behaved 'cafe dog' and are grateful for Roxanne giving us the tools to train a well mannered little guy. It also is very convenient to schedule the training sessions at a time that works for you and your family. I would highly recommend Roxanne and Pavlov Dog Training!
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.
22:49 01 Sep 21
Zoë was such a gift to us!! She was professional, reliable, always on-time and never rushed thru our sessions. She went above and beyond to assist us in helping our whoodle puppy learn the basics and beyond. He went from being a mouthy-destructive toddler to a balanced and loving family member! We will choose Pavlov every time! Thank you, Zoë!!
13:51 01 Sep 21
My pup Layla and I worked with Shannon on basic obedience and she was awesome. Always on time, great with the dog, and helped cater our sessions to work on things were specific to us & our needs.
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.
13:45 31 Aug 21
Calling PAVLOV was the best decision we made. Before the training, we had serious doubts that getting a dog, especially a puppy, was a smart decision. After our first training with Roxanne life with our high energy friend changed. We could finally communicate! Now I can walk my dog and enjoy it. Friends can visit without being jumped on or knocked down. Happy dog - happy life - we can't thank Roxanne 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.
17:18 24 Aug 21
We had a wonderful experience with Pavlov dog training. We are new puppy owners and wanted to start training good habits with our puppy. Our trainer was knowledgeable and really connected with us and our dog. His behavior has really improved and with consistent practice of the techniques we learned, I know he will be an amazing "furever" companion. Thanks, Pavlov!
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!

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.
19:49 17 Aug 21
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!
18:23 15 Aug 21
I just finished the Obedience 1 class with Roxanne and PAVLOV and can't recommend Roxanne and their program more! My 5 year old rescue dog who I have had for 3 years had some behaviors that I wanted to correct and commands that I wanted to solidify and Roxanne was able to tailor the class to our specific needs and I am very pleased with all the progress we have made! Roxanne is a great communicator, professional, passionate about her work and you can tell she loves dogs! She was great at helping me understand my dog's behaviors, the benefits of boundaries with our animals and how training can help us develop even closer bonds with our best friends and she was 100% correct! Thanks PAVLOV!
15:29 15 Aug 21
I recently completed Obedience 1 training with Roxanne Ouweleen, who is an incredible, communicative dog trainer. I really enjoyed working with Roxanne and she provided a handful of skills to work on each session & gave insight into the psychology of how a dog interprets our communication & actions, and it was insightful into how to adjust my behavior to better communicate with my dog, Maeve, who is fully of energy and also anxiety. I think I needed the training the most! Maeve was horrible on a leash previously, and now she is so well behaved and there is a big difference. Highly recommend working with Roxanne if you're in the Denver area.
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!
