Testimonials

Our black, eight month old German Shepherd Luna was very hard to control. She was constantly spinning after her tail ripping off fur and would even break the skin and bleed. We took her to the vet and they said we would probably going to have to amputate her tail, this was unacceptable to us and quickly realized we needed to explore other options. We hired another trainer before we went to Happy Dog Training and after 2 sessions with the other trainer, we quickly realized that Luna’s problems were beyond a normal trainer. Ralf from Happy Dog training came recommended by other trainers as the goto for behavioral issues and so after our first failed attempt, we consulted with Ralf. From JUST the consultation we already started to see progress with Luna and managed to start breaking our dog’s spinning actions. Throughout our sessions, Ralf not only helped us break Luna’s obsessive spinning but also helped us managed her anxiety around other dogs. Now she is a very well adjusted dog with a beautiful tail she proudly wags around everywhere. Ralf is extremely knowledgeable and professional with the way he handles our fur children. I can’t express how much help Ralf has been to us and are forever in his debt. Ralf is a sure bet you won't need anyone else!

Danny and Jessica,

Prior to hiring Ralf we were struggling to train our puppy ourselves. After seeing how well behaved our friend's dog was we immediately asked them who trained their dog. Our friends highly recommended Ralf so we reached out to him and began our dog training journey together. Our puppy Allie is very shy, timid, and weary of strangers so it took her awhile to warm up to Ralf. Once their relationship was established she began to look forward to her weekly sessions with Ralf. You can tell that Ralf really loves dogs and it shows in the way he talks passionately about his own dogs and issues affecting dogs. His knowledge of training, techniques, and general wellness of dogs was extremely beneficial to us. He not only showed us how to train our dog but he was always available to answer any questions we might have or to recommend products to us that were useful for our puppy. Thanks to Ralf's wonderful training we now how a well behaved, friendly, and beyond loving puppy! We highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to train and or build a better relationship with their dog.

Lisa and Alfonso,

Our Golden Retriever puppy was very hard to control. He was 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 knowledgeable in the area of canine behavior and his knowledge has resulted in excellent results I highly recommend Ralf and his team.

Like many other of Ralf's clients have stated, we saw a big change in our dog Sparky after just one session. Yesterday, after just six sessions, Sparky "graduated." Those sessions with Ralf transformed not only Sparky, but us as well. Frankly, my husband and I needed the training as much if not more than Sparky did. We learned about dog psychology (pretty fascinating) and what was going on in Sparky's brain. He was picking up on MY anxiety and acting out on our walks. He used to bark, growl and lunge at people and dogs we would meet - very embarrassing. Now he barely acknowledges them. I feel much more competent as a dog owner now, and when we go on our walks, I feel confident and in control. When we go in or out of a door, he waits for me to go first. Because, you see, I am now the PACK LEADER. All this is thanks to Ralf. He was wonderful to work with - besides being extremely knowledgeable, he is very interesting, personable, and quite a funny guy. He REALLY knows dogs, what they need, and what you can do to help them. We would definitely recommend him to anyone needing help with their dog. Thanks Ralf.
