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!

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.

I was SUPER impressed with the way Kylah trained and taught me to handle my little German Shepherd puppy!!! Her method worked so well and I couldn't believe the progress my dog made in just 5 lessons! I have complete confidence that she is going to be a beautifully mannered dog because of the time I spent with Kylah. I think my puppy is still hoping it will be Kylah at the door every time the doorbell rings. She just loved her! Thank you!!!!!
23:36 30 Sep 21
So glad I went with Pavlov for training, as their methods work. Kylah has helped transform my crazy, unmanageable Aussie puppy into an obedient and good little boy. I love my puppy even more now that he’s not dragging me around on walks and understands/obeys commands. My little doggie dude is so excited to see Miss Kylah in a few weeks for further training!

PAVLOV and our trainer Shannon were awesome. We had been doing a lot of training with our Dog on our own based off of books, YouTube videos, etc. and while it was going well there were some things we just couldn’t figure out. Teaching our dog a new behavior or getting him to do something when we asked was going fairly well, but getting him to stop certain behaviors we didn’t want, like excessive barking, was a challenge. Shannon was able to not just help us with the specific issues we had, like getting the barking under control in just one session, but teach us training methodologies we could continue using in the future. Our dog loved her, honestly have nothing but good things to say. If you’re looking for a great trainer, don’t hesitate to go with PAVLOV and Shannon.
22:05 23 Sep 21
AMAZING experience! Kylah is a dog whisperer - she has helped us with our mini Aussie puppy and wow what a long way she has come in just 5 sessions! Signing up for a second obedience session now. Highly. Highly recommend!
21:08 23 Sep 21
As a first time puppy owner I was clueless on where to start. Mara was so helpful and my puppy would pick things up instantly. She took time in each session to make sure I understood how and why to continue training after our session ended. I am now constantly told how sweet and well behaved my puppy is and I already have her signed up for off leash training!
16:52 22 Sep 21
I've been working with Kylah, and she has been so amazing for my aussie puppy Leo's progression and growth in so many different facets of his training so far! I am first time dog owner, never had any dogs or cats growing up in my family, so I really had no clue what I was getting myself into or what to expect and how to go about best training him. Having no prior experience it was definitely stressful at the start before starting training with him, and even committing to a training program like this made me nervous. Since starting with Kylah though, I couldn't have asked for a better beginning to Leo's puppy training, as she has made it so much easier on myself and taught me and Leo so much even just within the first training program. She also made me so comfortable right away, willing to answer any questions I had regardless of if they seemed like a dumb question from my standpoint or not, and always willing to be flexible and work around my schedule as needed. Several times she reached out to let me know she could meet up earlier or later with me depending on what worked best for me, and was even amazing about responding to any questions I had come up in between training sessions over text. In terms of her training techniques she has made it so easy for me to follow and understand, as someone who is completely new to owning a dog, as I've never gone home feeling like I needed more information or futher understanding around a certain command or training technique. I could go on, but really can't say enough about the quality that Kylah shows in her work consistently, and she really is always there to help out regardless of the time it may take out of her day, even offering to let me bring Leo over to play with her dog outside of training sessions. Highly recommend Kylah for anyone looking for any level of training for their dog, as her expertise and committment to success has had the most positive impact on my puppy Leo and on my own relationship with him!!!

A neighbor recommended Virginia at Pavlov. In two weeks she turned our 8 month old Great Pyr mix from a beast that the kids would avoid walking, into a well behaved and happy critter they now call "Miss Perfect". Great communication, great results and excellent coaching for the humans. I highly recommend Pavlov Dog Training.
02:41 15 Sep 21
We had the best experience with Kylah. Getting a corgi was a little scary but Kylah made it easy to get a routine going to control her little attitude. My entire family loved the experience of being able to have training in the comfort of our home. I would definitely 20/10 recommend Pavlov and Kylah to anyone!
01:41 15 Sep 21
My family and I worked with Kylah on my dachshund Massimo's behavior. Before we worked with Kylah, Mo was a struggle to walk, constantly reacting to other dogs and people in and around the apartment complex where we live. In about a month, he went from wildly reactive with dogs he had branded as his personal enemies to a wonderful walker and a very attentive listener. Massimo absolutely loves Kylah and he will do anything for her. This has really helped when she explains and shows how to train him properly. Kylah is also incredibly knowledgeable about dogs. In the first five minutes of my first session, she dropped some dachshund knowledge on me that completely floored me and had me understanding my dog better for the first time since I got him.
17:33 10 Sep 21
I just wrapped up my first set of 5 puppy obedience training sessions with Kylah from Pavlov. Tanya and her wonderful team helped me train my now 5-year old female German Shepherd when she was a puppy, and these new sessions were for my recently-adopted 1-year old female German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois mix, Ava. We have made so much progress in just 2 months and I would not have been able to do it without Kylah's help and guidance. Ava is a very smart pup and learns quickly, but she was a handful when I got her and impossible to walk on the leash, to the point that I was not certain if it would work out. She barked, pulled, and spun like a top every time another dog was in the area. I have a very demanding career and not a lot of free time, so Kylah gave me limited but key areas to work on and with just about15 minutes of training a day, Ava is now (for the most part) walking calmly on the leash, staying by my side when we walk by other dogs and sitting when I tell her to. In general her behavior has improved dramatically. I plan on doing more sessions with Kylah so that I can walk both of my dogs calmly around Sloan's Lake. I highly recommend Pavlov and Kylah!
01:33 08 Sep 21
We LOVED Pavlov Dog Training and especially our experience with Kylah. Our dog tended to be leash reactive towards both other dogs & humans. We worked with another trainer previously and saw significantly more progress over 5 sessions with Kylah than with that trainer. She was professional, reliable and very open to adjusting her tactics to meet our dog where he was. This meant accelerating certain sessions when he had already nailed the basics or spending more time on specific items where needed. We now feel well equipped to manage our pup's reactivity and he has grown significantly in his ability to self-manage as well.
18:09 01 Sep 21
We had a great experience with Pavlov dog training from the moment we called in to schedule their services. We worked with Mara Soo, who was great!!! She helped us get our crazy puppy under control and taught us how to use the e-collar which has been super helpful. She taught all of us so much and really helped set us up for success with our new puppy! I would highly recommend Mara with Pavlov to anyone who needs a great dog trainer!
04:12 01 Sep 21
Such an incredible experience with Pavlov Dog training. Mara Soo really helped us turn our stubborn and wild puppy into such a well behaved dog! She has so many solutions to the specific issues we found ourselves facing through our puppy’s first few months with us. I highly recommend Pavlov to anyone serious about having a well trained and well behaved dog, it’s worth the investment!
03:07 01 Sep 21
Super happy with Pavlov, and Mara specifically. There were a few bad habits our 2-year old dog had developed and we wanted to correct them. Thanks to Mara's help we were able to fix our priority concerns of jumping on people and pulling on the leash, plus others. To make it stick, we have certainly had to do our part in practicing repetitions with our pup but nothing Mara had us doing was too difficult or time consuming. It was really easy to work with Mara (and Pavlov) and we cannot recommend them enough.
19:23 29 Aug 21
Kylah is absolutely amazing and so knowledgeable-- I highly recommend her. The best part is that she taught us the skills necessary to continue and maintain our puppy's training so that we all can be at our happiest and have the best quality of life with our dog. A big THANK YOU to Kylah.
02:58 24 Aug 21
I just finished working with Kylah for a few reactive dog refresher sessions and had an excellent experience. I went through the full reactive dog training a few years ago and it was so helpful for learning to manage my pup's reactivity while on walks. Recently, I had been wanting to take her to the next level and build my confidence with her in much higher activity areas so I went back to Pavlov for some guidance. Kylah made sure to work off of the foundation I had already built and gave me the tools to continue to try new things. I feel much more confident and my Dane is really enjoying our new "field trips."

Hi, I’d like to share my experience with Pavlov Dog Training and its amazing trainer Kylah. For the past few weeks, Kylah has been training my 2 high energy and very different puppies. Tristan (6m) and Tessa (8m). Each one has different needs, skills, challenges and are at different stages in their development. This is where a professional, expert trainer comes into place to highlight and tailor the training as needed. We finished our first round of formal training and we will be resuming such in a few weeks to let the puppies digest the training, for me to follow up. I appreciate Kylah’s expertise, customizing the training, suggesting a few things to help the puppies (gear and others). Highly recommended service if you have dogs and want them a bit civilized and to continue being happy dogs!
18:31 19 Aug 21
Shannon Kole was a fantastic trainer. She has a true knack for communicating with dogs, commanding and tender. The individualized lesson and homework plan was very successful. Over the course of 6 sessions we saw a marked progress towards our goal of allowing our dog more freedom off leash. Months after the program, we are still enjoying the results of the training and have used it as a system to continue refining our pup's behavior. And the E-collar is worth the price! We are happy to have a quality device to use for the foreseeable future.
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!
21:57 13 Aug 21
Kylah was wonderful, attentive and taught my dog (and us) valuable lessons. I have a new baby and we can now go on walks with out our dog pulling on the leash. Thank you, Kylah!!
03:38 13 Aug 21
We learned so much with our trainer Kylah! We needed some guidance with our puppy to make sure we were get started on the right foot. Kylah helped us learn basic commands and how to walk calmly on the leash. She was flexible with our schedules, responsive to our questions between sessions, and tailored her training to our needs. 10/10 would recommend!
01:40 13 Aug 21
My one year old hound and I worked with Kylah this summer. Before working with Kylah, my dog was high strung, anxious, reactive, and was constantly barking at me. Now, she is able to calmly lay with me, walk through Wash park without batting an eye at another dog, and overall has become so calm and confident. I'm so thankful to have worked with Kylah and gotten to know her. My relationship with my dog has significantly improved since starting with Pavlov!
23:08 12 Aug 21
We could not be happier with Pavlov and Kylah. She helped us with our newly adopted rescue. In five lessons we went from knowing little more than sit to functioning off leash, consistent recall, and practiced being calm on a patio. We never thought our hound mix could be an off leash dog, but Kylah taught us that it was possible! Would highly recommend Pavlov if you are struggling with basic or advanced training.
23:46 11 Aug 21
We just completed Obidence Training 1 and our trainer Mara was great! We no longer have issues with our lab puppy pulling on the leash, jumping up on visitors, or attention barking. Mara provides clear notes at the conclusion of each lesson, which makes it easy to practice between sessions. We plan to move on to Obidence Training 2 in the fall!
00:55 10 Aug 21
Jenny did an excellent job working with our Australian Shepherd puppy. She demonstrated clear goals and instruction that produced instant results after each session. We highly recommend her and are glad that we found Pavlov Dog Training!
22:04 09 Aug 21
Mara Soo was an amazing trainer. She was so knowledgeable and easily related the jewels of her training abilities. My Shihtsu Cleo and I profited immensely from her visits and are so grateful to Mara! This was worth every cent for a well mannered puppy.
19:04 09 Aug 21
I was having trouble properly training my 6 month old lab puppy. She was pulling while on walks, jumping on people and dogs, and rushing the front door when people came inside our home. Our trainer Zoe halfway through the first lesson had our pup walking on a lead gently. Zoe showed me the things I should’ve been doing all along. It takes work but our pup is now on her way to being well trained on an e-collar and isn’t rushing other dogs or jumping on people or dogs.I can’t recommend Pavlov Dog training enough. I only wished I engaged them 3 months sooner. Their responsiveness to my inquiries was also excellent.
01:56 06 Aug 21
Pavlov’s Mara Soo is an extremely qualified animal trainer and really helped us mold our Dogo Argentino “Lola” into an obedient, well behaved dog. Our main objective was to get Lola to a point where we could walk her off-leash and through Mara’s expertise we can comfortably do so. Thank you Mara and Pavlov!
17:23 31 Jul 21
I adopted a 3 year old dog from a shelter. She had some behavior issues, including some that may have forced me to return her to the shelter. Mara Soo of Pavlov Dog Training saved me from having to do that! I now have a calm, well behaved dog who loves everyone. I am so grateful for her help. I highly recommend Mara and Pavlov Dog Training!
22:09 30 Jul 21
We had Jenny R. as our trainer. While we had contacted Pavlov about only one of our dogs, Jenny ended up helping us correct behaviors for all three of our dogs. She really took the time to ensure we understood the basics before focusing more on our areas of concern. We knew that it wasn’t necessarily our dogs who needed the training but more us, as pet parents, who needed the training. Jenny was patient, thorough, and supportive - all helping us feel more confident with training. We tried group training before, which did not go over well, so we were hesitant about trying any type of training again. Jenny definitely changed our minds and we’re so happy we decided to give Pavlov a try!
19:52 28 Jul 21
20:46 27 Jul 21
Soo happy that we decided on Pavlov for puppy training!Cameo was simply amazing! Very informative and helpful throughout all our training sessions. Made our puppy Maya feel very comfortable too. Don’t ever hesitate to ask any questions! She answered all of our questions that we had, especially on how to deal with other owners and dogs in different settings.Highly recommend if you are looking to get any training done for your pup or dog!
18:11 27 Jul 21
Thank you Kylah for helping me train my one year old, 75 pound bernedoodle, Moose! I remember during our first session I talked about how badly I wanted to bring Moose to cafe's and breweries without her going crazy & being loud. Sure enough, by lesson five Moose, Kylah, and I sat outside at a cafe in busy lohi, and Moose was the calmest dog there! Moose doesn't pull on the leash anymore, she stays in "park-it" while I am busy in work meetings and she comes when called (even without a treat). Kylah gives you the skills you and your dog need to be successful- Moose and I can't thank you enough!!
22:22 26 Jul 21
If I could give 10 stars I would. Mara was our rockstar trainer who worked magic on our pup. She is a gentle dog whisperer! This is my boyfriend's and my first time raising a pup on our own and naturally we were a bit lost with the training piece. Our puppy had a huge nipping problem and would bite my limbs and tear my clothes non stop. After our FIRST session, Mara gave us the tools to help with this behavior and we immediately saw a difference within the first week. It was a huge relief and it only got better each week. I super appreciated that Mara always provided the "why" behind each thing she taught us as it helped me understand the way my puppy views the world. We will definitely be signing up for the obedience 2 course when our pup is old enough because we had such a positive experience this time around. We look forward to continue building the bond we have with our pup and are so happy we met Mara and the Pavlov team through this experience. We now have a healthy way to communicate to our pup and that is the best feeling ever! Thank you for everything Mara (and for saving my limbs!!)
20:24 21 Jul 21
When our bernedoodle puppy was 5 months old, we had reached a point where we could no longer get her to listen. She was getting bigger, and while she did very well with house training, she was a nightmare on a leash and pulling constantly, was chewing on furniture, and jumping on people. I contacted Pavlov Dog Training based on their great reputation, and purchased a 5 session package. Our trainer, Jenny, came to our first session and listened to all our behavior concerns. Over the course of 5 sessions, she has helped us learn how to implement appropriate consequences to correct all of them. We have seen such a huge transformation in our sweet girl, Stella, and we have learned so much about how to work with her!! Jenny is amazing! I would highly recommend her and Pavlov Dog Training to anyone that needs help training their dog!
14:44 21 Jul 21
We had a great experience working with Roxanne. After having our puppy for a few weeks, he was getting out of control with with nipping, jumping and being overly excited. Although we had read lots of dog training books, we didn't find the advice to be helpful or effective and decided to try a professional trainer. The difference was dramatic. Our dog responded to Roxanne immediately and we then realized what a great, obedient dog he could be. She listened to what we needed and tailored her approach to what we wanted to accomplish. After just 6 weeks we have a puppy that doesn't jump, walks on a loose leash, comes when called, waits patiently for food or to enter or exit a door, and will stay on his bed while we eat meals. We get compliments all the time from strangers when we are out walking about his great manners. I would highly recommend!
16:25 20 Jul 21
Cameo is personable, professional and extremely knowledgeable about all things dog training. We have two energetic border collie's who were in desperate need of some training/structure. We worked with Cameo for 6 sessions on leash manners, "park it", and general obedience. We saw huge improvements in all of these areas and couldn't believe the progress we made with our pups in such a short time. The training and homework is a lot of work but Cameo made it fun for both the humans and the pups. I would highly recommend Pavlov dog training - you won't regret it!
03:23 16 Jul 21
Kylah has been so helpful with training our Golden Retriever puppy. She makes it fun for us and the pup while getting great results!
19:38 15 Jul 21
Lily our 2 year old rescue had experienced a couple of different trainer’s in her first year, all helpful and positive. COVID put us into break mode with training. A break was good, however it became clear Lily and our family would benefit from additional behavior training.I witnessed a client’s dog “in training mode” while visiting her office and was impressed…and so it seems were her office mates who commented that the the trainer had been a miracle worker with the dog. We signed up and glad we did. Roxanne helped us identify and define our needs. Her goal oriented style helped us better understand our own behaviors and how our patterns affected Lily’s behaviors. She kept us on schedule and on track. Roxanne’s training style is deliberate, firm, caring and effective. We look forward to future lessons with her as needed and have highly recommend her for her training abilities.
17:01 15 Jul 21
Cameo was an excellent trainer and Pavlov made it incredibly easy by training right at our home. Our pup Chauncey is noticeably more obedient and she provided us with all the knowledge needed to train him in basic obedience. She’s also quite funny. We will likely continue additional training with Cameo and Pavlov once our pup is neutered. Highly recommend their services!
03:11 14 Jul 21
I had a great experience with Pavlov and my trainer Mara. I did puppy training with her for my 4 month old Frenchie puppy and by the end of our training Remy had all the puppy basics covered and even some advanced skills, too. I was impressed at how quickly Remy picked up each command, and Mara was extremely knowledgeable on all things puppy. I appreciated that Mara gave me the tools to teach Remy new things now that our sessions are over! Also, she was always prompt and I could text her any of my questions in between sessions and she replied almost immediately! Thank you Pavlov and Mara!
23:24 11 Jul 21
We have been working with Mara at Pavlov Dog training all summer and have been so happy with the results. She has a wealth of knowledge and each lesson came prepared to advance our Goldendoodle and Bernese Mountain dog to the next level. We highly recommend her and the Pavlov training service!
21:41 10 Jul 21
Great experience with the obedience program that Pavlov offers. Our trainer, Mara, did an amazing job with our Catahoula Leopard. She catered his obedience training to specific behaviors that would arise throughout his training program. She also taught me the proper way to handle specific behaviors. There were behaviors that we weren’t properly curbing and now know how to! Thanks for the help- definitely considering the advanced obedience program based on how well our Catahoula is behaving on the basic obedience commands!
20:58 07 Jul 21
If your looking for a trainer for your dog look no further then Pavlov and make sure you ask for Kylah!! Kylah is amazing she worked with us on our puppy training with our mastiff/shepherd mix. She helped him on a path to be a great dog and we plan on signing back up for his future training. We had issues with crate training and leash walking and she was able to get both of these under control as well as his basic commands. Thank you so much!
05:31 06 Jul 21
We recently completed the Leash Drama program with Kylah. I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and the PAVLOV program! Response time was prompt and scheduling was incredibly flexible. Kylah brought professional and insightful on-site training skills, and tailored the program to provide exactly what we needed for a well-behaved pup. We are so grateful and definitely recommend this program.
21:29 03 Jul 21
Pavlov and Kylah were awesome! Millie and I had a great experience. Kylah was super responsive, a great communicator with human and dog alike, and made a great impact throughout our program. Highly recommend!
15:47 03 Jul 21
Hiring Mara through Pavlov was one of the best investments we've made. We adopted a new puppy (difficult breed: husky) and could not train him on our own. Mara is a dog whisperer. She supplied us with simple but extraordinarily effective techniques tailored exactly to our dog. She took the time to make sure we understood the hows and the whys of everything she asked us to do. We now have a happy and well behaved puppy who enjoys learning. Throughout the entire process, Mara was always available via text and email to answer our questions. She was exceedingly professional in every way and I cannot recommend her services highly enough.
15:47 03 Jul 21
Mara was the Dog whisperer!!!We had a shelter husky mix that was a rocket without fins, so energetic with no direction. Ran off at everything, never listened, full of love but no training.After working with Mara, we are able to have him off leash at a park with little issues now, and we have a ton of 'training material' on hand so we can keep our dog behaving.Would recommend:)
16:24 30 Jun 21
Mara was an awesome trainer for our 100 pound pup! She helped us navigate his fear of children, his leash walking, and his over excitement when greeting people at our door. She was patient with my questions, thoughtful with her responses, and just all around a wonderful dog trainer!
15:57 30 Jun 21
Mara was wonderful with our small dog.Our dog's training and socialization had been interrupted by COVID, so she tends to be shy and her existing training was very patchy, but Mara stepped right in and was quickly able to determine what would work best for her.Mara covered everything we wanted her to know and more. I didn't have any experience with dogs before, so Mara was very patient to walk me through it. All the methods used were incredibly effective, which has made our daily reinforcements a source of joy and connection.I'd highly recommended Pavlov training, specifically Mara. This was a wonderful investment for our dog and ourselves.
02:29 26 Jun 21
We had a fantastic experience! In five sessions, Kylah taught us all the skills we needed to drastically improve our dog’s behavior- we’ve curbed the barking, now trust our dog to come back to us off-leash, and he’s no longer pulling on walks. We specifically did the leash drama program and it was perfect for us- I’d say we got everything out of this that we hoped and then some. Also, our dog LOVES Kylah. She was super easy to work with and answered all of our questions about our dog’s behaviors. HIGHLY recommend!
00:22 26 Jun 21
I hired Pavlov for 5 week puppy training for our lab, Mabel. Roxanne was awesome. She was very in tune with our priorities and made sure the training was appropriate for Mabel’s personality and intellect. Our sessions were focused and efficient and very productive. The training is almost more for the human than the dog so you have to do your homework, but it’s worth it! Time and money well spent - many thanks Roxanne!
16:52 25 Jun 21
This was not our first Dog Training company for our Kona…we had tried and partially failed the first go-around. That is, until we found Shannon and the good folks at Pavlov Dog training. The methods that she employed WORKED - she was easy to work with, and most importantly she got us the tools we needed to curb some ‘habits’.I would definitely recommend the company…they know their dog psychology and we’re great partners.
17:22 23 Jun 21
The best money i have ever spent, ever was on the leash drama training program. My dog after 7 weeks went from an unruly dog chasing everything in front of him to being able to walk next to me entirely relaxed. I would highly recommend using their services and have been telling all my friends if they need a trainer to use Pavlov!
19:58 14 Jun 21
PAVLOV dog training is amazing. Our trainer Chelsey was very knowledgeable and was able to work wonders with our puppy Bravo. After Bravo returned from the board and train, even our neighbors commented that he acted like a totally different dog. I would highly recommend PAVLOV to anyone who needs dog training.
17:14 14 Jun 21
Our experience with PAVLOV & Chelsea was 10/10. Not only was Chelsea incredibly professional the results were amazing. We struggled with our dog pulling on walks, recalling him off leash, and sprinting out of open doors - Chelsea fixed each of these areas and helps me sleep at night knowing my dog is safe in a city!
18:01 13 Jun 21
This is truly a great investment! I would highly recommend Pavlov to anyone with a stubborn pup. I had recently adopted a year old Pitbull and she was a handful right out of the gate. She had very little manners to begin with. You name it - barking, pulling on leash, lunging at other dogs/people, separation anxiety, potty training, counter surfing, leaping up on guests, and had zero kennel training. That first weekend was hell and I was worried I’d have to return her immediately because our older dog was also fed up with this little hell raiser. I would say I had a very vanilla level, of dog training experience myself, so I definitely wanted help to see if I could make this pup have a better quality of life. Pavlov connected me with Mara and even after the first training we saw immediately improvements. Granted I had to continue the training every day in between my sessions with Mara. That’s the real trick, you have to put in the time yourself too. We started with the 1st level obedience and afterwards the first level of off leash training. It took about 2.5 months altogether and now she is such a better dog! Mara went above and beyond during that time. She was so great at breaking down the causes and effects of each training. Which helped us to understand from our dogs’ perspective. She even used her own pup to help us with lunging at other dogs! Her availability was great for my schedule and her communication was top notch. I could even contact her when she wasn’t scheduled to visit with me. I can’t praise her enough! After those 2.5 months my pup isn’t perfect, we still have a lot of work to do, but she has made tremendous strides and continues to learn more everyday. Pavlov and Mara have set us up for success and I can’t wait for all the adventures life has in store for us!
15:14 12 Jun 21
We had never had a dig as a family. When we git our puppy Roxanne was here and talked us through the first days and weeks. She was very patient and included our kids and bith of us in the training. She took time to learn what we wanted, what our priorities are and what our expectations were. She was super responsive over text and email with any questions tgat came yp between trainings and even helped us with different settings. Would absolutely use her again and again.
04:22 12 Jun 21
We had a wonderful experience with Shannon we were having trouble with our dog being rude, all up in people’s business , and pulling when on his leash. After our first few classes we saw a change in our dog for the better. Our trainer gave us many tools and tips to help our pup behave. We have really seen a change in him. We highly recommend their services 🐶

Kylah was an amazing trainer! Our dog Murphy had some obedience problems that were getting out of hand. Kylah was so efficient and patient with us, and we noticed a big difference after the first session with Murphy’s behavior. After the full course, he is now so well-behaved, and we have learned so much as owners. I can’t recommend Kylah and Pavlov enough!!

My dog and I worked with Kylah and it went so much better than I expected. I had a reactive German shepherd and as much as I wanted to take her places and give her a good life, her reactivity to other dogs made me feel hopeless that that wouldn’t happen. I had done a lot of reading and asking around about dog trainers and it seemed like trainers were hit or miss and I could possibly spend all this money for nothing to change. However after only 3 sessions, Kylah had my dog walking right past dogs on the sidewalk! For our last session, we went to petsmart and walked around and my dog didn’t bark at one single dog and even sat nicely while we checked out with another dog in line behind us. She was so great to work with because she listened to what I knew about my dog’s issues and worked around us and where we already were in our own training. I really thought my dog would never get better, but there were noticeable changes even after 1 session. If you’re still trying to decide on a trainer, I highly recommend Kylah and Pavlov!

Kylah is great! We had previously only had rescues and never a dog under 5 months old, so we were a bit out of our element with a rambunctious English Bulldog puppy. We have tried other dog trainers in the past and this experience was totally different.Kylah + Pavlov made the process relaxed and simple. Everything is broken down into a few basic concepts that once learned (by both you and your pup) can be applied in other areas, so you can continue to grow even after training is complete. I'm sure we will reach a point where we are ready to learn more, and will not even consider any other trainers. Thank you Kylah!

Emmylou, my one-year old black Labrador, and I just completed Obedience 1 and 2 with Roxanne. We are both super happy with the training approach, the process, results and Roxanne’s kind and informative approach to training. Of course, Emmy picked everything up remarkably quickly. I was the slower one. Roxanne was very knowledgeable in the training approach she utilized offering very practical step-by-step instructions as well as helping me to understand “how” Emmylou would likely interpret my correct (and , at times, incorrect!) commands and related actions. She was always clear in demonstrating what she wanted me to do during each exercise and would, when necessary, play the role of Emmylou to make clear what she was expecting. She made training fun and understandable which left me and Emmy with the homework tasks.As a result of Roxanne’s assistance and teaching, Emmylou is and will be a better companion for me and, I hope, I am a better caretaker for her. Moreover, Emmy will be a much safer and happier dog because of Roxanne’s caring, consistent and conscientious approach to training.If you are considering getting some help with training your dog, go with Pavlov’s Dog Training and you would be really lucky and rewarded if Roxanne is your (and your dog’s) trainer. I plan on following up with Roxanne when Emmylou and I are looking for additional training.

Shannon was amazing! We have two toy poodles in a noisy apartment complex and she gave us the tools to effectively train them and manage their anxious barking. She changed our lives! I highly recommend Pavlov!

Kylah at Pavlov has gone above and beyond what I imagined a dog trainer would be. She quickly became resident puppy translator, providing innumerable insights to our 4 month old's behavior and motivations. I cannot see any part of our success with Olive without also seeing the guidance and steady hand Kylah provided us in training. She was always incredibly keen and engaging while in person, and very prompt and professional through communication. I will only request Kylah for any future programs.
00:35 10 Jun 21
If you want your dog as smart as a show dog - train with Kyla. If you want to be as smart as a show dog - train with Kyla. She made our derp princess into a derp obedient queen, reigning over all tennis balls and neighbor dogs. In all seriousness, Kyla can explain training in easily digestible terms, and is incredibly attentive. 15/10 suggest her as a trainer.

We had Roxanne as our trainer and she was great. The training program follows their sequence of training but the progression is based on the dogs responsiveness. It has made the world to us and our new puppy. Highly recommend! Thank you
10:33 04 Jun 21
The Pavlov puppy training program was exactly what we needed!Mara is an amazing trainer. She asked thoughtful questions and built a training plan that was right for our puppy and our family. She doesn’t just train the dog.....she also trains the owner. We learned so much about the role we play in having a well behaved dog.I highly recommend Mara and Pavlov dog training!
23:38 03 Jun 21
We had such a great experience with Pavlov! Not only is it really nice that they come to your house, they also do a really good job at tailoring a training style that works for our dog. We worked with Mara, and she was able to find a method that worked for our extremely stubborn puppy as well as our very sensitive aussie/border collie mix. She also was fun to have as a trainer and gave us a lot of useful tips for how to get some of our dogs energy out. Highly recommend!

I just completed the 5 week private obedience 2 training, and I could not be happier with my dog's results! I have seriously been telling everyone that this is the best money that I have spent! I personally worked with Kylah, and she was fantastic, I highly recommend!I have a Chocolate Lab who is just over 1 years old, and I contacted PAVLOV to work on correcting his absolutely TERRIBLE leash walking manners (85lbs and VERY strong), as well as his off-leash recall. I worked with Kylah for 5 weeks, and am absolutely amazed by the finished product. She spent the time to assess my Lab, and to hear my concerns. She then tailored a training program that effectively accomplished everything that I wanted my dog to learn within the allotted time. She was very knowledgeable, always available to answer questions/concerns, and recommended tools/equipment that helped guide my dog to do what I was asking him to do.After the second session, Kylah had shown Cody how to heal, and had shown me how to properly enforce and maintain this perfect leash walking. We were also able to greatly improve his off-leash recall, and improve his listening skills while outside in an environment with several distractions.
02:40 03 Jun 21
So happy I chose Pavlov! Kylah was beyond amazing and professional throughout our sessions. I was beginning to think the manner and behavioral issues my 3 year old shepherd/husky had were never going to change. By the end of our 5 week program I can honestly say she is a different dog. She’s able to greet guests without jumping and our walks are much more enjoyable without the constant leash pulling. Highly recommend Pavlov!

Roxanne Ouweleen was my in home trainer for a very busy rescue cattle dog puppy that had a lot to learn. Roxanne listened and carefully explained each step. She was patient, efficient, professional and compassionate, and helped me learn to manage this little ball of energy.I will be forever thankful as I was feeling desperate! I will definitely use her again and recommend her highly.Judy

Before we got our puppy (chocolate lab) I had read a bunch of books and watched many YouTube videos about training and thought I was pretty much good. My wife went ahead contacted Pavlov and for my birthday got me the Private Puppy Obedience training.Our trainer was Mara and she was wonderful. Always on time, very polite, very very knowledgeable, and our puppy Brutus loved her. She showed me new tricks and training aides that I wasn’t aware of. And really got me going on the training that Brutus and I were plateaued on. An overall great investment. We are now looking at our summer schedule and seeing if we can fit Level 2 Obedience in. Thank you so much Mara and Pavlov!!Erik Green, Brutus and Family.

Great dog training experience! Our trainer, Shannon, did an excellent job improving the behavior and habits of our stubborn basset hound .
21:45 31 May 21
I would highly recommend Pavlov’s training programs to anyone in need of help with their doggos! Their programs and trainers are very well rounded and highly experienced. My trainer Shannon was extremely confident in her training abilities and helped me to become a much more confident dog owner. Not to mention she was also super friendly and great to work with. My dog has progressed so much since the start of her training and is much calmer and much more responsive. I’m very glad I decided to work with Pavlov!
18:20 29 May 21
Mara was the trainer for my four month old French Bulldog and we had a great experience! She was very helpful with potty training tips in our apartment building and working on proper walking behavior. I really enjoyed working with Mara and would highly recommend her!
16:18 28 May 21
We did the at-home puppy training for our two puppies. Shannon was a pleasure to work with and the depth of her knowledge/experience was apparent from our first session. Our expectations for the package were met; we were most interested in developing good house manners and building a solid foundation for our puppies to understand their role/place in out household. We plan to continue work with Pavlov as our puppies grow.
15:19 28 May 21
We worked w Shannon to train our Portuguese Water Dog puppy. We did the 5 session puppy package beginning when our dog was 12 wks old. It was great! Shannon was enthusiastic, professional, easy to work with. We included our 2 children (ages 11 and 9) in the sessions too and that was a big help! Our puppy learned lots of the basics (sit, stay, beginning of leash walking, etc and tools to help break bad behaviors) and we have a good foundation to build on. More work ahead, for sure, but Pavlov / Shannon got us off on a good path. Money well spent. Definitely recommend.

Our year-old golden retriever, Como, recently completed the board and train program with Virginia and we could not be happier with our experience! Prior to working with Virginia, Como was a very sweet, but strong-willed and stubborn pup who had been through some basic training but still loved to scamp around the house and do his own thing while on walks (lots of leash pulling). After two weeks of board and train with Virginia, Como came home a well-mannered, obedient dog who no longer counter-surfs and can safely go on off-leash hikes! Not only did Virginia train our dog, but she also trained my husband and I so that we could reinforce the skills Como learned and make sure we are setting him up for success at home. Our dog is much calmer and happier with us in charged, and still has his sweet and spirited personality.Virginia was a fantastic trainer. She was professional, kind, and committed to helping us meet our training goals. We really appreciated how proactive she was in scheduling the follow-up training sessions (we think these were a big part of our training success). In addition to Virginia, all the folks we communicated with at Pavlov were great--particularly Claire who did our intake interview and helped us hone in on our training goals and choose the right program for our dog. We are so glad we worked with Pavlov!

I highly recommend Pavlov Dog Training. I am very happy with the results from our obedience classes and our trainer Jenny was great!! My 10-month-old pug Geno had many behavioral issues from chewing to biting to separation anxiety. Geno can now be left alone, he is no longer chewing on the furniture, is much better on our walks and now doesn’t bark at every sound he hears. Jenny walked us through multiple exercises during each class and is very knowledgeable about dog training and always was able to answer the questions we had. I definitely recommend Jenny and Pavlov for anyone looking for dog training.
20:32 23 May 21
Best dog trainers around! Personable, professional, and effective. I highly recommend Pavlov to anyone and everyone!
22:39 20 May 21
So thankful for PAVLOV & Mara! You can’t put a price on a well behaved puppy. The tips and tools Mara has left me with have me confident that I can teach my pup just about anything!
19:25 20 May 21
1000% Recommend!! I’ve gone through several training programs with previous dogs, and this one is BY FAR the best. Cameo did such an exceptional job helping us train our boy Benji—he could never go on walks before bc he would pull me down the street, and now he heels right beside me! I’m shocked how much Cameo was able help because Benji is just so obedient now! I am extremely happy with the results and cannot thank you guys enough!
22:19 19 May 21
We needed puppy training for our large Swiss Mountain Dog pup and Roxanne was amazing! She helped give me the confidence and tools I needed as a first time dog owner. Highly recommend - thanks again for everything Roxanne!
21:37 19 May 21
We had an excellent experience with Pavlov, especially with our Trainer, Mara! The program was tailored to our specific needs and I particularly liked the in-home setting so that we could work on things in a familiar environment where a lot of our issues we’re taking place. I’ve received many comments about how well behaved and relaxed my pup is and it’s surely thanks to Mara and the folks at Pavlov!
18:43 19 May 21
I called Pavlov to help me make my good puppy a great dog. Our trainer, Mara, was great to work with! She listened to my concerns and focused our sessions on our specific issues. She not only helped with obedience training, she helped us solve my puppy’s car phobia. He now loves the car! Mara clearly knows what she’s doing. If a technique wasn’t effective, she had other tactics to deal with the behavior. Mara has the experience and expertise to help anyone with their dog. Thanks, Mara and Pavlov Dog Training, for helping Cooper become a great dog!
17:22 19 May 21
We were lucky to have Roxanne help guide us through training for our one year old English Cream Golden Retriever, Goose. Going into the training Goose was extremely difficult to take on walks, he would pull constantly and basically take us where he wanted to go. After our five weeks with Roxanne, Goose is a totally different dog and our walks are now enjoyable! Goose sits and waits for his commands, walks right by our side, and doesn't pull, its a miracle! Could not recommend the PAVLOV training enough and our trainer Roxanne. 10/10!
01:45 19 May 21
Mara was great with our Dalmatian pup. Great training lessons and attention to our specific concerns about our pup.
22:18 18 May 21
Mara was really great with my puppy. She got to know him so that we weren’t focused solely on using the e-collar, and she helped me get over my anxiety that I was hurting him when I corrected him. It was a really great experience!
13:26 18 May 21
Don't think twice - this will be the best money you spend for you and your dog! We worked with Shannon on leash walking and off-leash recall (Obedience II). Shannon was so great with our dog who is pretty shy and we always left our sessions crystal clear on what to work on. We found the Pavlov approach to dog training to be really intuitive and super effective - it is truly night and day walking with our dog and we are ready for off leash walking/hiking. Highly recommend Shannon and Pavlov!
01:28 18 May 21
This is the second puppy we have had trained through Pavlov. They are amazing! Our trainer, Shannon, is super experienced and has an answer for any issue or problem you bring up. Pavlov's techniques are simple and easy to learn and the puppies respond almost immediately! I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good dog training service!
16:55 17 May 21
PAVLOV Dog Training is the best! We had the pleasure of working with Shannon and she was amazing. We learned a lot of great commands that have really helped us and our pup. Shannon was super patient with our dog and always came prepared for each and every training session. PAVLOV dog training is 10/10 and I'd highly recommend this to anyone!!

We brought our sweet bernedoodle Bailey home at 10 weeks old. As first time puppy owners and busy professionals, we knew we wanted to invest in training. We knew we didn’t have the expertise or time it would take to train our Bailey. After google searches and speaking with various training companies, we chose Pavlov dog training. Claire’s communication on what to expect and her flexibility to accommodate us was very much appreciated. While it was hard to say “see you soon” to our girl at 5 months old she was in great hands with Virginia who sent emails, videos, texts, and pictures throughout the 2 week process.We never thought Bailey was bad, just chalked it up to being a puppy when she chewed a shoe or pant leg, or when walking on a leash was a tug of war. We were so proud when we took her for our first walk with Bailey and Virginia. We were impressed with how well behaved and obedient Bailey was. Prior to training, taking Bailey for walks was often time consuming and frustrating. Now they are efficient (quick potty walk before rushing off to work) and enjoyable when we have more time to stroll. She knows her sit, stay, come, heel, and NO! Virginia took time to train us and has made herself available to answer any questions and give advice since we met. We would highly recommend letting the trusted experts at Pavlov dog training take care of and train your dog!
19:47 14 May 21
Roxanne was an awesome trainer to work with and helped our shy Millie gain confidence and manners no matter what the situation. She was very patient with us and the dog and respectful of Millie's timid nature. We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for dog training!
01:58 12 May 21
Before Roxanne from Pavlov’s came to work with our mini dachshund puppy, he was very fearful and afraid to go outside in our front yard. Over several weeks, he gained a lot of confidence by learning and mastering various commands and puppy manners. Roxanne was great at making suggestions when certain techniques didn’t work for him. Now, 2 months later, he is a brave and sociable little guy that loves his “walkies”! Thanks, Roxanne!
01:33 12 May 21
Our experience with trainer Virginia in the 'board and train' program has been outstanding!! She is super responsive and wonderful to work with. Our 9 month golden retriever Ginger LOVES Virginia and came home a trained and wonderful doggie. Virginia worked with our various family personalities, including my 8 and 13 year old sons, over our sessions with grace, patience, and kind guidance. We are confident dog owners and Ginger is a well-behaved sweetheart.

My 7 year old yellow lab, Jax, attended the board and train program with Virgina after a number of scary experiences because he likes to escape the house and run around town. He's always been wild once given freedom and I had serious hesitations that he even had the capacity to be allowed off leash even at dog parks given his age and stubborness. Virginia was fantastic and provided us constant updates around his progress and I was amazed when she sent a video of him behaving off leash and walking without pulling. Jax is a much safer dog now and is allowed to have freedom making our hikes more enjoyable and it's all due to her hard work with him. Will always recommend Pavlov and Virginia and will be coming back to continue to grow his abilities!
