Our dog was a handful before we met Danika Postle. Very aggressive and fearful of other dogs and people. We now have a new dog!! Danika is a wonder. Highly recommend. Very patient. The main training is the owners.

We have thoroughly enjoyed both the puppy socialization classes and the obedience classes. The trainers are excellent with dogs AND people - always on time, professional, and knowledgeable.

Dave did a great job helping train us how to train Rex right and gave plenty of useful tips and tricks that have done wonders!

Emma was our trainer and she did a fantastic job with our nervous rescue pup! We saw incredible changes in her behaviour over several sessions with her. Definitely recommended

We had Dave over to our condo five times to help get our two dogs under control when someone comes to the door. We have a 5 year old Papillon and a 1 1/2 year old Yorkie. I immediately felt comfortable with Dave and appreciated his gentleness with Finn and Chewy. He always arrived exactly on time which made it easier for me to ready them for his arrival. They now sit quietly in their “place” while we eat as well as when someone comes to the door. I would highly recommend Dave to anyone having difficulties with their dogs.

We had a great experience with Danika (5 private sessions), working on our pup's reactivity. She was excellent at checking in each week, making sure we felt we were focusing our time on the skills we were hoping to improve, and she gave us a bounty of helpful techniques to practice. We were also provided with plenty of external resources to better understand where our pup's behaviours were stemming from. Overall, this was a fantastic learning experience and I would recommend Danika and BabyDog to anyone looking for a positive-reinforcement trainer for their dog!

Danika was our one on one trainer that we can not recommend enough. We are very thankful to have had the opportunity to work with them. We came in with goals and we feel that all our goals were met and beyond.

I want to thank Danika for her training of my dog Teddy. I was having some problems with my dog and obedience, but through the work that we did, he is now a much friendlier dog, and listens to commands. Danika was always able to give me advice, or answer my questions, and I feel I was also "trained" at the same time. It was very educational. I would suggest training for every puppy (or older dog), and would recommend BabyDog to anyone looking for a training source.I look forward to the group socialization in April.

Danika was AMAZING to work with!My partner & I adopted Bailey, A very sweet but very reactive staffordshire/pit bull mix in June of last year. Danika has been working with Bailey since our 3rd week of having her! Danika has taught us how to handle Bailey and when/how to remove her from situations that aren’t working for her. (Not to mention Bailey is absolutely in love with her) I feel SO much more confident with Bailey after having Danika as a trainer. 10/10 you will not regret working with Danika.

Aviva was an excellent trainer. My dogs are walking better and becoming less reactive to other dogs. I have noticed a real difference
