You could have sworn there was an entire turkey on that counter just a moment ago …
That pooch looked so cute and cuddly when you got him home, and then he turned into Godzilla …
That sweet saucer-eyed dog you rescued at the shelter has become terrified at the very sight of another dog …
Neighbors have been leaving notes on your door about the incessant barking…
There’s a sign at the dog park that says “All Dogs Welcome – Except Yours!”
There's a reason they call it Puppy Love. They're cuddly. They're cute. They…leak! All over your house. And that's not all they do:
This is not what you bargained for. That's why we offer specialized puppy consultations to help you and your little friend get started on the right foot… and paw. It's never too early to establish some basic house rules. And to create good habits before bad ones begin.
Owner/Trainer/Behaviorist, Joe Timko, has been training dogs for 20 years, using a variety of training techniques based on lots of praise and love. A graduate of Rutgers University with a background in Animal Science, he bred top-winning Tibetan Terriers for 10 years, and was owner and handler of "Max," 1997's Best of Breed winner at the Westminster Dog Show in New York, and winner of the 2000 Tibetan Terrier National Dog Show.
Stephanie has been working with dogs for 5 years and has a vast knowledge and skill set from her work experience at shelters, rescues, and animal hospitals. She started off at a shelter and saw how many great dogs were relinquished or abandoned simply because they lacked any training. It was then that she realized the need to help these dogs to stay in their homes and to help people solve the problems they were having. She has trained all types of dogs, including service dogs. She loves helping them overcome behavioral issues and building a relaxed, confident companion.
The successful results of our trainers and our programs can be measured by the many letters of appreciation and referrals we receive from our clients.
Here are just a few:
"Today, I took my dogs out to potty and I experienced a blissful calm and immediate responsiveness from them the was unprecedented and as close to actual Utopia as I can imagine. I was allowed to feel nothing but love for them and do away with the frustration that used to join us on our treks outdoors. Want an incredible blessing. Best feeling EVER! Canyon View, you are so
“I can’t believe the great dog that Charlie has become. He’s no longer afraid of the world and changed into a delightful pet that we will love and enjoy even more.”
“What dogs learn at Canyon View they take into every aspect of their daily lives.”
“We were really skeptical as to whether it was even possible to train an older dog like Missy, but a three-week stay at Canyon View worked wonders.”
“Other trainers told me that my rescue dog might never overcome his aggression. With the help and expertise of Canyon View, my dog is now a well-behaved and loving member of my family.”
“We brought Bodhi to Canyon View because he was starting to get out of hand, and with our newborn, we desperately needed to gain control. Thank you so much for your dedication to Bodhi. He is a different dog because of you and we are so happy with the results.”
“My dog is now more personable and an accepted member of the family at family gatherings rather than the “condemned beast” he used to be before Canyon View Ranch.”
“After just a few days under your care, we saw encouraging progress in Carly’s manners, but after the full 28 days she spent at Canyon View under your supervision, she’s like a different dog. Now, Carly is calm and responsive, whereas before you worked with her, she was uncontrollable and had no attention span.”
“Although the professionalism and dependability of Canyon View’s trainers initially impressed us, it was their patience and obvious love of animals that won our trust.”
“Not only am I a satisfied customer having used Canyon View for my own dogs, but more importantly have referred many new “parents” who have success story after success story”
“When I left my dog for a four-week training session, it was as if I was leaving my dog with family and friends. Our experience at Canyon View was a complete success.”
“Thank you, thank you, thank you! Olivia is a different, manageable, lovely dog now!!
