Dog Training Testimonials

Dog Training Teddy

Our Golden Retriever puppy was very hard to control and constantly chewing on everything including our hands and feet. We needed help so we hired Happy Dog Training. Ralf has been working with our dog Teddy for 6 weeks and he is now well behaved and totally manageable. Ralf is a very knowledgable and helped us get excellent results. If you're looking for a dog trainer I highly recommend Ralf and his team.” – Tony C.
