Testimonials & Training Photos

"Thank you so much Olga for accepting our dog, Moxie, to your three-week training program. We are also very grateful for the hours you spent with us when Moxie returned to our home. Your encouragement and belief in us gave both of us the confidence to continue to reinforce all the things you taught her during the time she lived with you.

We have an amazing dog that definitely holds an MDO, a Masters in Dog Obedience. The fifty dog owners in our community are constantly talking about her maturity and the strides she made while away. Our highly energetic puppy that normally jumped on the owner and the dog with unbelievable excitement is now thoughtful and dignified.

Her manners have given both my husband and me so much peace. We are truly enjoying our dog more than we thought possible.

We recommend Olga, without reservation, because of her skills, knowledge and empathetic approach in teaching dogs to think and helping them to become the best dogs they can be. We would definitely send any dog to her for training without hesitation." - Susan & Kim Marshall

Go Dog Go 3 Week Board and Train - Settling in to an Assigned Spot Exercise

Settling in to an Assigned Spot Exercise

"Just wanted to write you a quick note to thank you for meeting with us on Saturday. I feel it was exactly what I needed right now... Hearing your philosophy and training methods really has shifted my perspective on dog training overall, as well as individually what Roman needs from us to navigate his world. What Roman needs I have not been giving him, I now feel more empowered to set boundaries with him and confidence to set and hold that tone with him. I feel more confident in how I want to train him, and feel very grateful to have met you and heard more about your training style. I was struggling to understand how to train, how to find that balance, but I feel I have an understanding now of the direction needed and the confidence to know what my dog needs." - Gretchen H. & Roman

Heeling with Beckett

"Olga provided us the necessary tools to train ourselves so that we could train our unruly dogs. Within the first 24 hours of her presence, Olga had transformed our dogs into good students. I was amazed at how quickly she connected with them and how quickly they recognized her as pack leader and instructor. By the end of the first training week, the dogs were great students and eager to learn more.

The end result is absolutely phenomenal. I can walk both dogs at the same time now, and even get comments on how well behaved they are! And Olga even traveled cross-country from the West coast to the East coast to provide the training. You can't be more dedicated to training than that! Thank you for transforming our home into a calm and assertive place!" - Love, Lori & Eric and Maggie & Stormy

Play Manners with Other Dogs

"Special thanks to Olga for the excellent training! Bella passed with flying colors her much sought after Social Therapy designation having completed all 17 of "4PAWS" Canine/Handler evaluations.

We are in line to take several monitoring sessions prior to visiting hospitals, convalescent organizations and children library reading programs. Bella is great at lowering stress levels in particular group settings. As such, we shall be working the campus of Sonoma State University at exam time in April. Nothing like hugging a pooch to lower anxiety levels! She will also be available for all during the 2015 San Francisco Giants World Series playoffs." - Nelson Weller & Bella

Waiting Before Entering or Exiting a Doorway

"Hi Olga, just wanted to let you know how blown away we are at our NEW DOGS!! We have been on walks the past 2 mornings and Sean and I stop and laugh and say, "Are you sure Olga returned OUR dogs?" We used to come in the door after a walk and give them a grade… usually an "F" was announced… Now, we walk in the door and say "A+"!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!! You are the Wizard of Paws!" - xxoo David

"Olga, many thanks for the excellent training you provided for our miniature labradoodle, Val. Being in our 70's, we did not have the energy to train another puppy, and, with the virus out there, no local classes for dog obedience. It is now a pleasure to walk him (he used to leave ME exhausted). You've given us the tools to continue to work with him and reinforce the training. You were right in warning us he would test us when we got home. Sure enough, test he did, but responded very well to our new leadership. Our biggest concerns had been his biting with his puppy teeth and going wild in the evenings while we tried to watch TV. Our hands are now safe and our evenings peaceful....much appreciated!!" - Deirdre and Donald Terleski

"I took Albert to Spring Lake this morning, just he and I. It was so fun for me that I almost started crying - he was so good to walk with!! We did see some other dogs but he didn't pull at all. I wanted you to know, and to say thank you so much. Tie down is a god-send and he was 90% good at work today!" - Stacy

"Hi Olga, I just wanted to say thank you! Dane has been a different dog since the first 3 weeks he spent with you. After this past visit he's only improved! What you teach him and teach us has no dollar value (although we are happy to have spent every cent). I just can't express to you how you've changed our (the dogs & humans) lives in this household. Thank you so, so much. Looking forward to continuing to move forward with Dane & you. Thanks! You're amazing!" - Christy Hoekenga

"Whenever Olga comes to NYC, she works with Luna. Through the years we have both learned (Luna and I) that consistency is what counts. What is most important about Olga's training is she trains both owner and dog – so there's no question about what's going on. We love our Olga." - Katherine & Luna (Cattle Dog)

"The result of Olga Browning's obedience training for Shawn, our German Shepherd, exceeded all our expectations. She was able to change a rowdy, disobedient dog into a happy, mature family companion that without question can be trusted to do the right thing in any given situation. A kind gentle dog that is just a pleasure to be around." - John & Debbie

"Greetings from Danny and Alice Carter! We are kinda sorta looking for a German Shepherd; looking for another 'Sampson,' he was the perfect dog. If we can work it out, we want you to help with the training. El Paso, Texas to Santa Rosa is a long way. However, that's how much Alice and I think of you. Please feel free to use Alice and I as a positive reference in your business. Isn't it interesting how dogs manage to keep people together? Take care." - Danny Carter
