Les was amazing with my dog and showed us a lot of simple tricks to make life so much easier with dog training. It is amazing how other behavior in everyday life corrected itself once we started training. Originally I signed up with training to improve my dogs lunging tendencies on walks but she also had terrible separation anxiety and would break out of her crate a lot, after we started training she hasn't broken out once. (And doesn't pull on the leash as much anymore) If your dog has any quirks you wish to improve I definitely recommend contacting executive canine services. He is very fair priced and honest, WELL worth the money and time. Thanks again Les!

Simply the best!! Les is fantastic. Helped us with our Lab pup. Provided us, as well our puppy with great training techniques. You can tell that Les loves what he does. He is patient, creative, and thinks outside the box to deal with any puppy related issue you might have. He made a world of difference in our pup, Mojo, and how he behaves. As always, it's all about repetition when training your dog, and lots of patience.I would highly recommend Les!! He's a very kind man, and absolutely brilliant at what he does. Thank you Les!!

Les is the best. He is very patient with your dog, and he has lots of experience. He really helped with our puppy. Les has plenty of ideas for training dogs, and he really listens to the problems you are having. Highly recommended, reasonably priced and he comes to your house.

Les has been a lifesaver! Our second pup was proving to be more difficult to train than our first and after a weekend trip to Tahoe we were desperate for a solution. We stumbled upon Les and, after working with him for the past year, we have new dogs and it has radically improved our lives. He is a joy to work with and the dogs love him just as much as we do. Highly highly recommend working with Les-- you won't find a kinder, more qualified or more reasonably priced trainer than him!! Thank you Les!

Les has been a fantastic partner in helping us train our Dogue de Bordeaux puppy. He has helped us think like a dog and our puppy's training yields quick results and is so much fun for the whole family. Les's calm, patient demeanor and encouraging feedback has been so helpful to us and our pups. I can enthusiastically give him my highest recommendation. I am sure we will be working with him for a long time.

Over a year later and Les is still so wonderful! We have two boxer pit mixes, they are stubborn & rambunctious, Les always goes above & beyond to give us the right tools to train our pups. Yesterday we did a photo shoot at the beach with the dogs and Les was a life saver; we truly could not have done this shoot without him. If you're looking for an amazing, patient, creative trainer Les is your guy!

Les, at Executive Canine Services, has been great in helping us with our "problem" puppy, Max. We were unprepared to handle him, due to his defiant, stubborn attitude. Les has worked wonders with Max, and also given us the necessary techniques to train him on our own. Max is making good progress and should end up being a well behaved, obedient dog. Les has done private training at our home, prices are very reasonable, we couldn't be happier with the results so far!

I rescued the sweetest little bichoodle and when I got her home she was aggressive with the neighborhood dogs I stayed in the house for weeks until I met Les after the first visit the dog aggression started and continues to dissolve Les has a way with dogs like no other he's reasonably priced well-respected in the community and if you can get on his busy calendar consider yourself lucky

Les was wonderful...helping me with a new puppy, Luna. He was recommended to me by a lady at a pet store. I was really frustrated. It had been 30 years since I had a puppy and I was overwhelmed. He was firm, but gentle and helped me, as well as my 10 year old granddaughter. We still have a way to go, but we are on the right track! Thanks Les!

I adopted a two year old German Shepherd. I had les from executive K9 services come in and work with her and my family in making sure that we got started off on the right foot. Les made it very easy to get acquainted with our new dog any put the information out in a way that everyone was quickly able to understand and start working with her effectively. He is very experienced and good at what he does and I'm glad that he helped me with my dog and I'd recommend him to anyone that is looking for this service. Fred Kreider

After a chance meeting of Les at Staples, I enlisted his services to help me acclimate two adult Springer Spaniels I had adopted. The previous owner had my head filled with how poorly behaved they were (under her guidance) and knew I would want help assessing their temperament and socializing them with other dogs (and people).I couldn't be happier. After just a few sessions, I understood how to motivate my dogs and let them know who's boss (without having to be too alpha). Our sessions continued to include socializing with other dogs and clicker training exercises. Thank you Les!

Les has been very helpful in getting us back as successful dog owners. Not having had a dog for over 20 years, it is so good to have someone not only give us "refresher" lessons, but giving us great new suggestions for training our adopted spaniel. His knowledgeable training has been terrific!

Terri D. Alamo, CA

Les had been working with Poppet (now 8 month old Great Dane) and Wallace (little poodle mix) for 3 months now. He has such a gentle presence while earning such respect from our dogs and ourselves as well!! Les keeps our sessions fun for the dogs & they both love him! Les is caring, committed and a fabulous trainer! Thanks to the training we get from Les, we will always be able to say "Yes, my dog ca do that!!!" Thank you Les!

Les is the best of the best when it comes to dog training. He knows his stuff and it was apparent from the way he connected with our dog in the first training session. He truly cares about each client and is committed to seeing them succeed. We saw results after the very first training session and the progress was remarkable following each session. Les comes prepared to each session with treats and training aids. He gives you "homework" to do with your dog after each session to prepare you for the next. He even follows up with you after each meeting to see how things are going. Les played a significant role in shaping our puppy into the dog he is today. I highly recommend Les for dog training, we will definitely use his services again!

Canine Services is FABULOUS! We rescued a great 3 year old golden retriever/border collie mix who needed some "fine tuning." A friend recommended Les to us, and we could not be happier with him. He is first of all, one of the most delightful people you will ever meet, and to top that, his knowledge of dog training is excellent. He is well read, has endless tips and techniques that are easy to learn and implement, and he really has a special knack with dogs. Our dog made great strides from week to week, and we really owe it to Les and his ability to read our dog, and make thoughtful recommendations for what we needed to work on. I felt he really tailored the training to our dog's needs. He was always on time or early, and came prepared with the next lesson to work on. I cannot recommend him highly enough, and will absolutely call on him for any more dog training needs. Thanks, Les!

I started working with les almost immediately upon getting my 1st dog. I was connected with les just by chance. It turned out to be the best thing that ever happened to me and my puppy hank. Besides being very reasonably priced, les is a great guy and trainer. We started with simple puppy obedience and just getting on the same page as my puppy, gradually working towards leash etiquette and general dog obedience. Les is constantly giving guidance and tips on different issues and items. After working with les over the past few months, he's turned my buddy hank into a good mannered well behaved dog and turned me into a competent dog owner. Les is the best

Travis H. Diablo, CA

Les is a wonderful dog trainer. He involves the entire family in the learning process. Our dog (Baxter) has grown leaps and bounds under Les' training and guidance. He has given us the tools necessary to manage Baxter's behavior. Les has gone above and beyond offering to accompany us to the vet office and answering email and text messages in between sessions. We would highly recommend Les to all family and friends. One on one training and extremely reasonable pricing, we are thrilled with Baxter's training!
