    Kurt at Canine Conservatory is amazing! We adopted a 10-week old puppy and were doing our own at-home training, which was working...kind of. We realized we needed more help to make sure our puppy would be well behaved and safe at home or off-leash at the park, hikes, etc. We spoke with a few dog trainers in the Van Nuys/NoHo area and were drawn to Kurt for a few reasons - his responsiveness to us and his well designed website and the background and methodology it included. We met with Kurt for a 60-min trial and were immediately impressed. He provided explanations and reasonings as to why and what to do and even gave our pup a lesson that day too. We left feeling confident that he'd help us get the job done. We ended up going with the 11-session pack and visited him once a week. We'd come to class with our problem areas and things we wanted to work on and he'd focus on those for us. In between classes he assigns us, as the trainers, the next steps in our puppy's training process in his self-made app, Hundr. The app made it SO EASY to hold my husband and I accountable to continue her training at home AND how to train her correctly. Kurt's also always available by phone/text for questions and is super responsive! Plus, you can meet him at the dog park or out on his nightly walks to join him for some off-the-clock training and tips. He's a rockstar...and our puppy is on her way to being one. We just finished our last session and we have the tools and skills to continue training our pup through the rest of her life. And we still have access to the Hundr app and Kurt will continue assigning us tasks within it and I know he's just a phone call away. I should also mention, his training tactic is 100% friendly and positive reinforcement-based, no punishment. With Kurt, we solved potty training, we know all of the basic commands (sit, down, stay, come, release, off, no) and we've advanced those (sit at a distance, our puppy will stay for a long duration of time, etc.), loose leash walking, and she's learned other behaviors like paw, shake, sit pretty, spin in a circle, etc. Meet with Kurt, and you'll see for yourself how great of a trainer he is!
