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.

Pulling me in the right direction

Absolutely amazing. Sakari is a 65 pit bull with a very sweet heart, but he would pull me on every walk. He would run after every squirrel he saw and I’ve falling more time than I count. I’ve tried other trainer and every leash, harnesses and collar you can think of. It only took 2 learns from her to get him to walking with me. I was so excited to finally do this with my puppy. I couldn’t be more thankful for her help. She’s down to earth and kind. I would absolutely take your puppy to her.

Amazing 🙂

My dog and I had a great time learning at Canine Revival! Rita is a wonderful teacher and makes learning fun. I like the written handouts she sends home after each class. It’s nice to have everything in writing and be able to follow along step by step. We learned so much more than I expected 🙂 Thanks Rita, for an amazing learning experience for me and my dog!

Valued Experience!

I really loved working with Rita! Such a joy to see changes in my dog and how much we both learned and continue to work on to be the best fit together. Rita is a wealth of information! Invaluable foundation and setup for success, if you put in the time. Highly recommend to any “dog parent!”

Rescue Training/Obedience

After we rescued our 15 month old Labradoodle (Fraser) we needed some guidance with his attention and anxiety issues. He was a very startled and reserved puppy mill guy. Rita worked with us on his confidence and socialization skills. He responded immediately. The training has helped greatly with his attention and ability to obey commands. He has finally learned how to be a puppy! His willingness to please has been awesome as well. We would HIGHLY recommend Canine Revival and certainly will do it again with another dog if we choose to.

Great Plateau Buster!

Rita was exactly the resource I needed to get to the next level with my dog. We had gotten thru a challenging puppyhood on our own and worked our way to a ‘comfortable’ level of behavior… but had clearly lost momentum and had a few stubborn issues left. Rita evaluated our Irish Terrier and gave very detailed and helpful instructions in how to work with our dog for her specific issues. Thanks Rita!! A true pleasure learning from you!

Rita was so incredibly helpful! Cooper is a young, very high energy, Aussie that needs lots of mental stimulation. She has helped so much to teach us how to redirect all that energy. Rita is very relatable, really focuses on what you and your dogs struggles are, and I love how I will be able to text/call with questions when needed! I definitely recommend Rita to anyone looking for training, one on one training was the best decision I’ve made for Cooper!

Happy dog, Happy family!

Rita is a great listener and asked a lot of helpful questions to understand what we wanted for Oreo. She gave us numerous skills and activities to do with Oreo, including fitness which he loves. She gets straight to the point if needed (Oreo needs to lose a few pounds…) and we appreciated her for that. Overall, Rita has immense knowledge of animal behavior and does a fantastic job coaching us humans to help our pets to be happy!

BEST dog trainer EVER!!!

We came to Rita when our black lab started growling at our son when he was crawling. She reassured us that this can happen and ways to improve their relationship! She is so amazing with the dogs and our son, I recommend her to anyone looking for a trainer! She helped us with not only behavioral issues but basic training as well. We are so grateful for all her awesome help (:

Need Help? You’ll Be Glad You Called Rita

Our puppy, Molly, is highly reactive to noise and people. Rita took the time to get to know us and our puppy. The private coaching was invaluable. Rita observed our interactions with our puppy, and provided personalized professional tips and tricks to get us and our puppy headed in the right direction.

Since working with Rita, we’ve seen a lot of improvement in our puppy’s behavior and confidence. The training exercises Rita provided, weaved into our daily routine, have really strengthened our bond. We highly recommend calling Rita. You and your four legged family member will be glad you did.

BEST training for your pup!

Rita is amazing! Sonny has anxiety from his early months of his life before I had him and he took to Rita without any trouble. Sonny has come along way from where he started in just 4 sessions, somedays its like he is training himself by what I say or do. Thank you to Rita at Canine Revival for getting Sonny more comfortable in his space and more obedient to his owner and visitors.

Rita is terrific!

We are so pleased with our training with Rita! She got to know and understand our dog, was very accommodating with her visits and generous with her time, and worked with our whole family to make sure we understand her training techniques and could follow them similarly to provide consistency for our dog.

We feel like better dog-owners now, Rita’s training put us on a path to keep learning and training on our own. We highly recommend Rita!

Fantastic results

Rita has helped me build my dog’s confidence through fitness, and the transformation has been amazing. We just moved to the area and my pup was having a hard time adjusting. Every walk we went on triggered her anxiety and she was terrified of every loud noise. She would have extreme anxiety responses and there would be no calming her, but now she recovers so quickly and is able to continue with our walk! It’s an incredible difference, and I’m sad I didn’t invest in this sooner! Other than confidence building, my pup is learning great skills that improve her physical fitness and strengthen her rear muscles. It’s a calm and comfortable environment, and I recommend any of Rita’s classes to anyone who wants to do something with their four legged friend. It’s a fantastic way to bond!

Chloe approved training

My husband and I and Chloe have learned so much training at Canine Revival with Rita! One of the things I like that Rita does is print handouts to give us after every training session. You learn a lot in each session- its nice to know once I leave I have notes to look back on so I know I’m training my dog correctly. Whenever I had questions or things I wanted to work on with Chloe, Rita was always available to answer and give suggestions/techniques to try. It’s been great to watch Chloe grow into the confident dog that she is!

Helping Keep Your Dog Young

My dog and I had a great time in the fitness training program at Canine revival. Rita is great to work with and does a good job of showing you how to do the exercises at home. We(my dog and I) usually spend a lot of time outdoors walking he parks or hiking in the wood around the east side metro area. I started the fitness training as something fun to do during the hotter summer months since we were limited on how much we could be outside due to the heat. We started the program about eight weeks ago and finished last week with what I would call phase one. Currently we are in between and I am redoing Phase one at home with my girl. I have noticed an increase in stamina in my dog. We take pretty long walks at night(3-5 miles) and weekends(up to 8 miles per day).When we come home I have a dog that takes a short rest but then initiates a game of tug and/or chase around with one of her stuffed toys. It has been quite a while since she has had any interest in playing at that energy level, especially after we are out walking for an hour and a half. I plan on returning to continue fitness training to help be able to keep our activity level up as we age.

Finley chills out

We came to Canine Revival with a dog who was full of uncontrollable energy. We left with a dog who loves us, who listens and is respectful. Rita explained things well and the handouts made it easy to continue training at home. We were given a lot of tools to manage Finley’s behavior and in a way where we understood what he was thinking. Thank you Rita!

Great time!

I came to Rita with my 5-yr-old pup, Ruby Joy. We needed a brush-up on obedience, and I wanted to address Ruby’s behavior with other dogs, particularly when we’re walking. Ruby did great and we learned some new skills to apply. We really enjoyed the 1:1 sessions as opposed to group sessions which we had done in the past. I felt like I could take time to ask questions and that Rita came up with lessons specific to Ruby’s needs and personality. We are really excited to go back for doggie fitness! This was also another reason we chose Rita, and after our training sessions were complete I was thrilled to sign up for fitness, as Ruby really took an interest. Overall this is a great program and list of services! Rita is wonderful to work with and keeps a very tidy and stocked place for lessons!

Scared dog Training

Rita did a great job helping me train our scaredy dog! She is so patient and understands dogs boundaries and needs. I don’t think she ever got to pet Radley, our dog, but that didn’t seem to bother her. He went from hiding and growling to exploring and wagging his tail. Canine Revival, namely Rita, is such a valuable resource for me and my dog. She has loads of knowledge and practical help, with each stage of training simple and effective. So happy we went.

Great trainer!

Rita is an amazing trainer! She is a dog whisperer. She could get my dog to do things i thought would never happen. And she was so good at teaching me how to do the methods and giving advice on everything from how to sit and crate train, to how to deal with my super energetic dog and the dog and cat not getting along. Rita is just plain amazing! And now we have a well behaved dog!
