Tristan was awesome. My dogs name is Duke. I've had hime since he was 2 months old. He is a Pithuahua(Pitbull/Chihuahua). So hyper energy dog. I thought that by adding more physical activity it would help with his over abundance of energy. …
Excellent training. I would recommend to my friends
I highly recommend Enlighten Dogs! They were on time, patient, loving of our puppy and really started us out with great instruction!
This place is very respectful and helpful for training my eight month old dog. The trainer Triston was extremely helpful and gave me the tools I needed to be able to train and manage my dog. Will definitely go back for further training if …
Enlighten Dog's is a wonderful place for your dog's needs. Training, behavior, or socializing your dog. The trainers are just awesome.
Very Professional. Great service & very knowledgeable. Trainer Brock helped us with our golden retriever. Had a private in home session.
Thanks Brock awesome trainer thanks for nice review
Tristan was great! Very personable and kind.
I met Chris over 10 years ago when he used to exercise my daughter's 2 very difficult-to-handle dogs. He was excellent with those dogs so I felt confident in calling him to help with the very exuberant young adult pointer I recently adopted…

Very informative. Tristan gave great ideas. We feel we are in control now and we can enjoy our puppy a lot more.

Brock Green was an outstanding trainer with us and our dogs. He provided excellent instruction and ideas for us. We look forward to his next visit next week.
We had an in-home behavior modification assignment with Brock. I couldn't be happier. He was so patient and helpful to gain trust with our shepherd x Ruby who has some pretty intense reactions while meeting new people and dogs. I look …
We worked with Anthony for our German shepherd and instantly noticed positive shifts in our dogs behavior and reactivity. Will be returning for future lessons as well 🙂
I had an in-home session with Tristian. I have my first puppy and I’m 63! It’s been a lot! However, he gave me some excellent instructions, and showed me how they work! I really feel empowered to train my puppy. Most of all, I see my …
Our trainer, Brock, was very helpful. He gave us several suggestions on how to retrain our furry baby so she will potty outside.
Darla is a happy energetics two year old black lab. She has been only going to training for two weeks – a total of four training sessions. I am very impressed with how much she has learned. Russ and Tristan are great. They take a few …
My 10-month-old french bulldog/pomeranian mix is a sweet and affectionate girl to those she knows. Otherwise, she is highly reactive and would bark, snarl, snap at, lunge at, pull towards, growl at anything she was uncomfortable with. This …

Brock was very helpful and amazing in showing us what we need to do in order to create a better environment for our fur babies.
Thanks Brock great trainer
I’ve heard great things about Enlighten Dig Training. My daughter and son in law Erin and Ray had their dog Reggie train at Enlighten and he is very well behaved dog. I’m looking forward to working g with my puppy Wilson at Enlighten.
Nate is wonderful to work with I have seen immediate results works well with Bully breeds and even high active dogs has good communication skills , has helped me understand our dogs better . Highly recommended thus far.
Friendly, knowledgeable, trainers. Great perspective on what my dog needs, confident he is in good hands and will learn all he needs to be a good companion.
Brock was fantastic and the things he demonstrated worked almost immediately in terms of helping us get our current dog to interact with our puppy.

Anthony's snake training is amazing! If you have a fur baby and live in Yucaipa....you NEED SNAKE TRAINING TODAY!
I recently did the 10 day board and train program at enlighten dogs and it did make a noticeable difference in our lab. Prior to her attending she would have a constant need for attention and barking when not getting that attention and now …
Thanks great review we love Sadie excited to have her back for your follow up
Triston was a very kind and knowledgeable young man! We enjoyed him teaching us how to teach and train our puppy. Great experience!
Our trainer Brock, led a Behavior modification visit. He was very professional and personal.teaching us specific techniques to alter our small dog’s aggressive tendencies. We would recommend him to other owners.
So far signing up and dropping off went very smoothly. The owner and trainer that Ive spoken to were very patient with all of my questions and very helpful. I have neighbors that train dogs and they have both spoken very highly of Enlighten…

We love Enlighten Dogs. We put our 2 year old puppy in a 3 week board and train program, and he's learned so much in that time! He's a pandemic puppy, so we haven't been able to socialize him like we would have liked, but after spending …
Nathan came to my home and worked with my kids and our dog Bolt. It was a great experience and very helpful.

I had a 1 on 1 session with Tristian and my new dog Hope. When we arrived at the training center, Hope pancaked on her leash and wouldn’t move. By the time I left a little less than an hour later, Hope was walking on leash great, knew sit, …
The trainer was extremely informative and his style of training matched exactly what we needed for our dog
Had my first in home training session with Triston for my 8 week old puppy and it went great! Triston is very personable, a great listener, and is very knowledgeable. Can't wait for my next session.
Our favorite training group! We appreciate the various real world training venues, the opportunity to work with different trainers and to safely interact with different dogs. The class are well worth traveling a distance to attend.

We rescued two young Dutch Shepard siblings running loose in our neighborhood that were unfixed, untrained and totally out of control. Needless to say we were at our wits end dealing with them. They had started to play way too rough …
Brock Green came to my home to help with my 2 pups Molly and Annie. They are hyper when ever I have visitors and Molly has problems on leash and one time pulled me down, not good when you are older.. First we worked on having people …

They were very knowledgeable and friendly. The facility is very clean and we quickly noticed the lask of smell and flies. They took the time to explain the facility, and their step by step plans for Jaxx's training. They will give up dates…
I've had two private lessons and I've learned so much. Nathan was great!! I can't wait until Odin does his two-week board and train.
It’s been a pleasure working with you and Odin
Was very happy with one on one training today with Nathan. He took control of our border Collie pup in a very short time and gave us excellent advice on training techniques.
Al thanks for great review Glad you enjoyed your lesson with Nathan

I really appreciate all that our dogs have learned here. The trainers are great and amazing at teaching. However communication needs improvement. Any response typically takes a few days and when reaching out over the phone I don’t always …
We’re always looking for improvement and we appreciate your review. We have a couple different plat forms people can reach us at our office line, website or social media and sometimes it does take just 24 to 48 hours to respond.
We’re always looking to improve our communication thank you for your review and we enjoyed working with your dog Beebo
After just one day in board and train I notice less discomfort/anxiety from my dog when walking near other dogs on leash. Enlighten is simply the best. The facility is spotless and sanitary. No flies anywhere! Shaded and pleasant. …
Chris (owner) is a absolute pleasure to work with . His staff is well trained , professional and love your dog.
5/5 definitely recommend
We have been working with Chris, Brock & Nate for about 4 months with our 2 year old Malinois mix Koda. There has been great progress with Koda – we started with a 14 day board & train, we are in basic obedience to help Koda out in public…
I learned a lot from our puppy trainer. I did a lot of YouTube and googling but nothing beats having someone come to your home and know your puppy and giving real personal advice. Glad I did this. Our wild puppy was stressing us out.
Today we did our first puppy training in our home with the trainer Brock. He was very helpful and patient. We look forward to our other training sessions. I would highly recommend this training center.

Great tips and solutions for any issues in training our doggies. I believe that trainers train the dog owners not the dogs. We need to learn how to guide our furry family memebers
I have only good things to say about Enlighten Dogs! Chris (the owner) and his team of professionals are a pleasure to work with. My dogs both jump for joy when I ask them if they are ready to go to “school“ for the day. Max and Piper are …

Nathan was so helpful and worked with our whole family teaching us how to train our puppy.
What an incredible trainer Nathan is! We have some work to do but I finally feel like there's hope for my hyperactive dog. I got some great information and tools to help our dog. This was money well spent, so very happy with our session!
We just brought home our almost 2-year-old boxer from a board and train stay. We are truly amazed at the difference! Our boxer is deaf so training has been difficult with him. Baron is like a completely different dog when it comes to …
Chris came to our house and was very professional. He gave us some great tools to stay our training with.

I highly recommend this professional dog training facility. They have helped me with my young puppy's problems. We have learned so much at the obedience classes. We continue to bring our puppy's for training.
Thank you so much Monica. WE are going to miss seeing you and Enzo, but wish you all the luck in your move and new surroundings.
We had Jillian as our trainer and she was great. She was very patient and kind and good about demonstrating how to do it. I think she helped us out very much.
Jillian is great!
We placed our dog S’mores with Enlighten Dogs for a month long Board and Train to help her with anxiety, reactivity, and resource guarding. There aren’t enough words to describe the amazing work this team does! S’mores is a totally …

We had our first visit with Isabella the puppy specialist and we learned so much today! We have used enlighten dogs in training all of our for babies and highly recommend all of their trainers.
I’m very impressed with Enlighten dogs. I took my German Shepard puppy for 2 weeks of in center training. I was amazed at how calm and well behaved Lucy was when she came home. Like night and day. She’s learned all the basic commands as …
just one day of training our 13 year old daughter is able to handle, control and walk our new German Shepherd, Bear.
All handlers and trainers are amazing and helpful and did a fantastic job with my giant puppy lab.
Layla is training to be my mobility/balance service dog. She has been going here since March and has done very very well after being with a unproductive trainer for about four months. The staff is kind, considerate.polite and couldn’t ask …
We adopted a 1 ½ year old high energy Pit Bull/ Boxer mix who had been neglected, but in good health. She had no interaction with other dogs her entire life, and what little interaction she had with people was mostly negative. She had a great spirit, but a stubborn streak a mile wide, and no boundaries with other dogs or people.
In a matter of weeks Chris taught her how to behave, and taught us how to communicate with her. Where she used to jump on us and bite as a form of play, and chew up everything that wasn’t concrete, she is learning to be calm and listen to commands. She is now a joy to be around.
Chris combines his enthusiasm, knowledge and expertise, along with his natural ability of understanding dogs, in his training of you, the owner, and your dog. With each lesson, Chris easily demonstrates his heartfelt desire to give you and your dog a happier life together. He teaches you how to communicate and be consistent so there is no more frustration and anti-social behavior between you and your dog.
– You are the best!

Ema is a 7 year old Rhodesian Ridgeback. She came to her ‘forever home’ with me after 4 homes in her first 1.5 years. She had been seriously neglected and had significant health problems. I have had several Rhodesian Ridgebacks, and consider myself to be an experienced behaviorist with good dog training skills. My 4 year old male RR, Kanzu is an AKC Champion with many performance titles including obedience titles. So, I know how to train a dog. But Ema is different! Whether her problems were due to her early neglect and lack of early socialization or the result of genetics and health issues, she has always had serious behavioral issues. (For more about Ema’s story visit her webpage) http://www.africantreasurerr.com/?page_id=505
While Ema is loving and gentle with me and other humans, she has always been highly dominant with other dogs and can be unpredictable and aggressive. To complicate the picture, Ema is exceedingly protective of me and Kanzu. Taking Ema out in public where she might encounter other dogs became traumatic and dangerous. As I became more nervous because of some of our bad experiences and my fear increased, of course, Ema became more protective and aggressive and the cycle perpetuated itself and became more severe. I compete with Kanzu almost every weekend and I was chronically feeling more and more guilt and sadness that Ema could not join us because of her behavior and thus was left at home alone for many hours. And, as expected, because she was alone so much, new behavior issues began to arise and her health declined. What a horrible cycle of events!
Ema(right) is now a Happy Camper!
Then I saw a flyer for Enlighten Dogs. I had tried several ‘dog trainers’ and ‘behaviorists’ without any success. I was immediately drawn to Chris’ emphasis on positive dog training and his understanding of pack behavior. Chris began walking Ema first alone and then with other dogs. After just a few days with Chris she was a member of a pack. Ema now has K-9 friends she meets with weekly and I think her favorite days of the week are now the days I take Kanzu and she gets time with her favorite person in the world, Chris and the pack. Ema changed dramatically within a few sessions with Chris. I can now walk her alone without concerns. She is more settled and content and her health has improved. I am incredibly grateful to Chris for improving Ema’s quality of life.
