Clark - Sabrina

"Clark and I love working with you! You are an amazing trainer!! You have the best personality too! Thank you so much for all that you are doing with us help make mine and Clarks journey a great one!!"


Mabel - Gina

"We took her to Cannon Beach in Oregon last week and she was like the town ambassador.  She was so good and interacted with a lot of people.  Each time she sat nice and just soaked in the attention.  No jumping up, all calm.  People couldn't believe she was only 7 months.  They thought she was some sort of miniature retriever"

Holly - Emma

"Thank you for all of your help, Sydney! We really enjoyed working with you and we learned so much. We are already noticing massive improvements with Holly and she keeps getting better each day."

Penelope - Shawnda

" Wow! In just two days, two hikes, I see what a difference the right tack makes! I finally don’t have an out of control rabid dog when other dogs go by. "


Sammy - Daniel

"Thank you so much! We really enjoyed working with you and feel we really gained SO much insight into Sammy and his behaviours. He's also showing so quickly a willingness to alter his behaviours based on the training."

Black Dog

Taju - Jo

"Sydney has been an excellent trainer, working one on one with me and my 7mth Portuguese water dog tailoring training to my dog’s personality and issues which you won’t get in training videos. I would highly recommend Focus K9 training to any dog owner."

Kali - Laura

"Just thought I'd let you know, we took Kali to the dog park and had her off leash the whole time, and she was so good! She was constantly checking in and was sticking with us with no issues. Thank you so much!!"

Trigger - Carrie

"Simply the BEST on all levels! We need more people like Sydney. We appreciate you!"

Charlie - Jonathan

"I highly recommend her for all the  services that she offers"

Wilma - Diane

"Thank you so much for training "me" these past 4 weeks! The attachments and your instruction have been most helpful! Wilma is so much happier and is starting to respond more!"

Theo - Sharon

"He is so well behaved when we walk him these days. We are getting to the point where we can walk him off leash occasionally around the streets...He is much calmer and more ready to listen."

Sombrio - Anthony

"Sydney really well assessed our dog (Australian Shepherd) behavior and our needs. She provided great training for our dog reactivity and much more. Her approach was pragmatic and adapted to our dog. She has a very high knowledge of dogs behavior. I highly recommend!"

What People Say. . .

If I hadn't reached out to Sydney, I'd still be telling everyone that my dog Bruce doesn't like other dogs, walking into the bushes when dogs pass us on trails, and generally being stressed and embarrassed by my dog. Now he's a positive influence on other nervous dogs and is calmer and more obedient than ever. He always checks back to me for guidance. Sydney taught me so much and built my confidence back up. I made more progress than I had expected, but I still love to go to her group walks because it's such a positive environment and a great place to keep learning about dog behaviour while having a nice walk in the park.
