Totally grateful
I was referred to, Rita, with Canine Revival from a friend. The best advise for Bernard, our Grandpup with anxiety and behavior issues. From the very beginning, Bernard loves her. Her knowledge and compassion is outstanding. Our family has learned so much, not to mention, Bernard. We all thank you, Rita. Your help is giving Bernard such a better life and ours.

We had signed up our 5 month old puppy for training and We really loved all the handouts we were given to help us practice with Alex at home.

Obedience training
It was wonderful working with Rita. Roy Joi Boi is my first dog and as a rescue dog, he has some anxiety. Rita was very encouraging and helpful not only with training but in all matters related to his care. I love that she is such a strong advocate for healthy happy canines!

Wonderful trainer!
We had Rita help us with some basic obedience training for our chocolate lab puppy, Zara. Her first lesson was around 12 weeks old and Rits had Zara learning so quickly right away. Her methods were easy to learn and Zara loved training time both with Rita and when we’d practice together. Rits gives you thorough instruction and tips and gives you detailed written guides to keep after each lesson on how to progress the skills. I also appreciate that she was able to come to our home so that Zara could focus with less distraction as such a small puppy. I get so many compliments from others about how well trained Zara already is at only 6 months old, I highly recommend Rita for obedience/skills training!

Rita was very knowledgeable, she helped us focus on basic training with our high energy dog (Aussie mix). She also let us pick what we wanted to focus on and gave us great tips on what to do at home.

As a new dog owner Rita was super helpful and reassuring! I had so many questions and she answered every single one of them. I appreciate her love for dogs because I can trust that she will provide the best training and advice that’s positive for both my dog and I. Definitely recommend Rita!

Wonderful experience!
Rita was fabulous supporting us after we adopted two rescue pups. She always started with what we wanted help with before moving into the obedience training planned for the session. She came to our home for two of the sessions which made such a difference helping us understand how to best manage these two new additions to our family. She was positive, encouraging and straight forward. She explained and demonstrated every step of the way, provided written materials and coached us as we learned how to work with them. She truly customized the learning experience not only for the dogs, but for us! I highly recommend Canine Revival!

Wonderful training experience
My puppy Cooper and I had so much fun learning from Rita. We went with the 4 session package, as I wanted personalized instruction and the ability to ask questions. I’m totally thrilled with how much we’ve learned and Cooper is doing so much better than when we started. He is an extremely enthusiastic little guy around people and other dogs, but I feel like I have to tools to help him improve as he moves out of the puppy stage. He knows a lot commands and tricks now, and I’m excited to incorporate more in the future. Rita has so much experience and a wonderful positive reinforcement approach to training. I really looked forward to our sessions as she was so helpful and kind, and never made me feel dumb for what I didn’t know. She’s the best!

Provided wonderful help with our dog!
Rita was a wonderful partner in helping to learn about our dog’s behavior and how to work with her to learn good dog skills. Rita was always conscientious and on time and was a joy to speak with! Our pup Luna loved her too! We learned a lot and would highly recommend Rita for anyone who is just getting to know their new dog or needs a refresher on good dog behavior.

A Fantastic Experience!
Rita goes above and beyond for our sessions! Not only does she provide great instruction with workouts, but she gives great advice all around to help you give your dog the best success. She takes the time to make sure that you, the owner/trainer, understands how the little details in posture and movement work together in giving your dog the best fitness experience. Rita is incredibly passionate about proper posture and movement to keep your dog healthy and sound. Our golden retriever Hati is always excited to see her and she’s grown so much stronger since we first started. Highly recommend Rita! She’s a dog lover through and through and a wonderful person to talk to!

Great dog training with Rita!
We really enjoyed our experience working with Rita. Our puppy learned so much in such a short time! (We did too!) Rita always quickly responded to all our questions, either in person or by text. Our puppy loved coming for our training sessions. We highly recommend Rita!

Unsocialized Dachshund Puppy
Arthur is a super sweet long haired Dachshund puppy but he was never socialized which raised concerns when being in public, going on walks, being around other people. He has immediate aggressive responses to strangers and loud noises. Rita was great with Arthur and gave amazing tips on basic training, socialization ideas, leash walking techniques and more! Arthur isn’t extremely food motivated but did great during our 1 on 1 sessions. He’s improved tremendously with Rita’s training guidance and although he still barks at random things, he’s developed so much obedience. Arthur is still a very curious puppy but he doesn’t pull on the leash or go in zig zags anymore. Rita has been fantastic and we definitely recommend reaching out to her if you’re in need of help with a new puppy, new dog, or even just a helpful refresher.

Great Start for my Puppy!
I was having some issues with my Pyradoodle puppy, who was too big and rambunctious for a puppy class and Rita was recommended by a friend. She helped me understand my pup and her behaviors, and using her advice, I decided to abandon the invisible fence that came with the house I had purchased. Rita provides detailed training materials at each session and has been helpful since the conclusion of the training. I’m so glad I found her and that both I and my pup can be happy!!

Thank you!
Rita and Canine Revival got us off to a great start with our new rescue, Yodie. At only a year and a half, he’s the youngest and most energetic dog we’ve had in a long time, and knowing the perception of his breed, we wanted to be sure we did things right for him. Rita showed us small steps to keep him focused and engaged, building toward bigger goals. She trained us as much as she did Yodie. She was clear, kind, patient and encouraging, even when I was anxious about the challenge. She was flexible and responsive. We did the 5-session package, because I absolutely love that we can text or call with questions or concerns for the rest of Yodie’s time with us. I highly recommend Canine Revival for your family!

Highly Recommend
Rita was a delight to work with. We reached out to her when our incredibly anxious chow-chow, Ruby, was 10 months old. We initially thought she just needed work on decreasing her anxiety due to lack of socialization early on, resulting to excessively barking and growling at anyone who walked by her. However, we learned so much from Rita such as commands to work on impulse control and leash training. My husband, daughter, and I gained so much confidence which increased Ruby’s confidence as well, thus, decreasing her anxieties. This helped us trust Ruby and we’re sure Ruby trusts us more in leading her. I highly recommend Rita at Canine Revival, LLC to anyone who needs support with their dog. My family and I learned more than we imagined and we now have the tools to continue working with Ruby’s behaviors the rest of her life. Thank you so much, Rita! We can never thank you enough!

Eddie’s professional training
We needed help with this high energy boy all the while knowing the importance of starting a young puppy off right I found Canine Revival and after checking references I gave them a call. Rita called me that night and we spoke in length about the program and how to get Eddie off on the right foot. I have had other dogs in my life and felt what she had to say made sense. Our first session while about training Eddie was also about us with tips and information. From there liking what was presented and how well Eddie responded we signed up for the 4 sessions. We really liked the one on one training. I feel that as long as we take what was presented both verbally and demonstrated we are well on our way. Thanks Rita you were great to work with!

Ring Bearers at our wedding
We did several private lessons with Rita to help fine tune our two dogs for our wedding. They were going to be our ring bearers but had a walking and barking problem. Rita worked with us to make sure they could be the best ring bearers ever! They walked perfect and didn’t even bark! She gave us great tips and training so that we can continue to work with them. Would definitely recommend Canine Revival to anyone!!

Olive Graduated!
Rita was amazing with our stubborn and over-active little Frenchie, Olive. She gave us a tremendous amount of hints and tricks to successful obedience and helped us to understand what we were doing wrong with our initial training, so we could correct our behaviors in just 4 sessions. I would highly recommend Canine Revival. If you are reading this review, your dog could use some extra obedience, so do not hesitate and contact Rita today.
