Client Testimonials

"These people were born to do what they do! Boysie, Daniel and Paul are what I call Dog whisperers! They really tap into the psychology of dogs and enter their mind helping us (the owners) understand what our dogs think and how they think. What I like most from their approach is that they show dog parents how to get their dog to really respect and obey them. Dogs love to be led! This creates a lot less anxiety, anger and frustration for the little ones. They trained not only my dog but my partner and I. They took the time needed to make sure my dog was fully trained and they guarantee their service as well. I’m very pleased with the results I got!!! I can truly say that my pup is a top dog and she loves them all too. They are very kind and gentle with the dogs and provide great tips even afterwards and always stay in touch. I’m very happy and highly recommend mellow vibes to any dog owner!"

“We have been so pleased with the service and care provided in training our dog Beau. We initially brought Beau as a puppy for training and were throughly impressed with the care and understanding that Boysie and Daniel exhibit with the dogs. They followed up after training and provided ongoing coaching for minor lapses that came up once we took over. Since the training experience we have returned to board Beau from time to time. Each and every time Beau is thoroughly excited to return which is probably the best endorsement!”

“To put it simply, Dan is the Man! :)...Meeting Dan, he gave us so much hope and direction. He educated us appropriately on what to expect and how to prepare ourselves for this long term commitment we need to have after Olivia's training. At that point, we couldn't wait to just get right to it. And that said, after more than a month with Dan, Olivia is living her best life so far. We are able to do everything with her now, without the fear of her causing trouble. She can stay at the daycare with no anxiety, the groomer is able to touch her face without any growls/nips..The list goes on and on. Knowing Dan, he'd reply with something like "you guys did your share too", but honestly, this really wouldn't have been POSSIBLE AT ALL without his help.”
