Hear what our clients have to say about Golden Rule Dog Training:

After the sad loss of two of our three elderly Pembroke Welsh Corgis early this year, my family was looking forward to bringing a puppy into our home.  We researched many breeds and decided a Goldendoodle would be a great fit for us.  My husband had one stipulation… we would have to take her to a professional dog trainer.   I have raised many family dogs since I was a child and never used the services of a professional trainer.  Golden Rule Dog Training was recommended to me through our vet and after learning about Elaine’s method online I was excited to meet her.  I was very interested in training our new puppy, Boodles, with positive training methods rather than through “rough hands” type training.  Boodles and my family have learned so much from Elaine.  We have a relationship with our dog that is based on trust, respect and affection.   Boodles does what is requested of her (most of the time!) because she wants to please, not because she is afraid of a reprimand.  Elaine also taught me that we can train our family dog to fit our lifestyle, whether it’s only being allowed in the pool or on the furniture when she’s invited, or helping Boodles adjust to our schedules and activities so she can participate and accompany us when we’re out.  It was great to have Elaine come to our home to train.  It allowed us to address behaviors specific to our home, indoors and out.  Training Boodles is fun when I know it will be a positive interaction.  And our Corgi, Daisy, is much happier with a well mannered pup in the house.
Thanks Elaine!  We have two happy dogs, which makes for a happy family!

We have a very powerful female bully breed who was displaying reactive issues with males who she did not know.  We sought advice from Elaine Berg of Golden Rule dog Training.  We worked with her for a period of months and Elaine taught us with practical, easy-to-understand solutions for improving our dog's unwanted behavior.  Elaine's methods are positive and effective.  She is a passionate and knowledgeable trainer who was a real joy to work with.

We highly recommend her for any of your dog's training needs.

Working with Elaine and Golden Rule Dog Training was a breeze. She came to help us with our newly rescued Bullmastiff, Hoss. We rescued him from a local group at 1 and a half years old and he had been kept in a kennel and did not have very good (if any) house manners. We saw her for 4 weeks and Hoss seems like a completely different dog now! She is very easy to work with and was very flexible with our crazy schedule! After each session she gave us homework for the following week, very simple things and it really helped when it came to the next lesson. She opened our eyes to new techniques when trying to communicate with him. She started with the basic things, sit, down, come...and somehow taught him that counter surfing and eating the kitten are NOT ok. :)  Overall we had an excellent experience with Elaine and would most definitely recommend her to anyone who was in the market for a trainer.

Dominique, our treasured friend.

"Teaching with Kindness" only begins to describe Elaine as she taught our family how to coexist with our new puppy.

    Master O'Malley, our King Charles Spaniel, learned to love Elaine and her attention during his lesson time, perhaps more than his treats or us!

    Together we accomplished more than our expectations for O'Malley. We all learned quickly, firmly and happily.

    Elaine comes prepared with health and safety information, hands-on experience, tender love, understanding and sincere kindness.

    We were saddened when she had to relocate to Texas, as she is very missed here in Colorado. We highly recommend Elaine for your training services.

I have worked with Elaine Berg with my Border Collie and my Labrador Retriever, both are fantastic dogs thanks to Elaine's training sessions. They are happy and mostly well behaved dogs and I am grateful that I learned so much about dogs from her. I would take any dog again to Golden Rule Dog Training for a fun and positive learning experience.


Thank you Elaine, you are great

Elaine Berg, with Golden Rule Dog Training, was very helpful in training me to control my 1 year old Sheltie.  "Dallas was very exuberant and friendly, but needed to learn not to jump on people.  Elaine taught me how to break Dallas of his bad habits with kindness and respect, but also to allow him to keep his own personality in the process.

 We had a great experience training with Elaine yesterday and I look forward to many more sessions.  We got a lot done and I'm already seeing improvement.  She has a great heart for animals and is also an excellent communicator with humans.  Punctual, prepared and positive all describe my experience with Elaine.
