DIANNE'S TECHNIQUE IS FAR BEYOND THE BEST WE HAVE EVER SEEN.
Dianne was our dog trainer to our little French bulldog. Her style and technique in training is unlike anyone else. To our surprise, our five month old puppy immediately grasped the commands, and that is all due to Dianne expertise and perseverance. Most trainers utilize a group form of training, whereas Dianne uses the individualized approach instead. In our opinion and five week experience Dianne's technique is far beyond the best we have ever seen. She has dedication and truly has a gift in loving all animals.
Sincerely, Alex and Megan

“WE APPRECIATE YOUR TRAINING MORE AND MORE”
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the great job you did with Titan, and we appreciate your training more and more everyday now that titan is a full grown dog because without your training we could not handle him specially by the feeding time when I tell him stay he doesn’t move to jump on the food unless I tell him go ahead again. thank you so much for all the effort experience and great training.

“SHE IS A CARING, MOTIVATING DOG TRAINER”
I can only say Dianne Lawrence is a "Gem"!! She is a caring, motivating dog trainer aside from being a very nice person. My little dog Bruno cute as he is was a holy terror. He ate anything in site & by that I don't only mean food, but carpeting, clothing, just about anthing he could get his little paws on aside from going to the bathroom wherever he pleased. He didn't know how to walk on a leash either. Diane listened to my stories, & truly made a difference. I just had to listen to her & carry out her instructions which were really very simple & worked! I can't recommend her highly enough. She was always there to listen & help with suggestions even after my time with her was finished. I hope you will be as lucky as I was if you are fortunate enough to work with her. Ellen Feder
“THE BEST TRAINER!”
The Best Trainer! We are so glad we met Dianne, she is such a great trainer, has shown love and interest on the training and progress of our puppy RAMBO between our sessions and after our training classes she was still following up with us and giving us tips of how to continue training our little puppy. Dianne trains dogs but also trains people! :) she has help us understand our new member of our family. Thank you so much Dianne! Sam & Mariella
“HE IS A BLESSING NOW AND WE HAVE YOU TO THANK FOR IT.”
My husband Paul and I brought our little Bichon Snowball to you to train. We hoped by the end of our four sessions that our out of control but sweet little dog would learn to become just a bit more manageable, and perhaps learn a few basic tricks. With you we feel we got so much more. Snowball is a completely different dog, he is much more obedient and dare I say it calmer. Not only did you skillfully teach Snowball (and us) but you gave us tools to help Snowball graduate into mature adulthood. He is a blessing now and we have you to thank for it. With our best regards and much thanks,
Truly Ziporah & Paul
“BUSTER'S EYES LIGHT UP WHEN DIANNE ARRIVES FOR LESSONS” Dianne is our dog Buster's trainer, and both Buster and I highly recommend Dianne to anyone who needs a good trainer. Dianne walked our whole family through the process of training a dog, and taught us the basic commands through easy to implement techniques and exercises. She gave us great advice on how to walk Buster, who is skiddish around other dogs, and we feel much more confident when walking him because he understands and responds to commands. Buster's eyes light up when Dianne arrives for lessons, and he has enjoyed the training process as much as we have. I highly recommend Dianne. Mike Wolf
“HE IS NOW CALMER, GETS ALONG BETTER WITH OTHER DOGS AND HUMANS TOO”
Dianne Lawrence is an awesome private animal behaviorist trainer. When I took my new puppy that I adopted from the Los Angeles Animal Shelter there, she was nervous, frightened, confused, hiding, but after a few times in Dianne's puppy playtime class and seeing Dianne in action and how loving and calm she was with a room full of energetic and rambunctious untrained puppies I was convinced I should sign up for her private training classes. Previously I had two other dogs and two different trainers for them and paid a whole lot more and it wasn’t private and it didn’t work. With Dianne - in just 4 sessions my dog can walk on the leash, and knows wait,come, sit, down stay and her name.
Dianne has simple, positive techniques and socialization skills that she teaches for all kinds of anti-social behavior. She is so patient and loving with them. Because my new puppy loved her obedience training and did so well I am seriously considering having her become a therapy dog. Sharron Shayne
“SHE IS TRULY LIVING HER PASSION.”
I am pleased and thrilled to write a recommendation for Dianne. She has the patience and the heart of a saint when it comes to training dogs. Without her dedication in training my dog and I, it would not have been possible for me to welcome Mickey into my home. She is truly living her passion. We thank you Diane. Regards, Tracey Campbell
“HE LOVED HER, AND EVERY MINUTE OF THE TIME WE SPENT WITH HER.”
I have only the best things to say about my experience working with Dianne Lawrence as trainer for my dog, Doctor. He LOVED her, and every minute of the time we spent with her. Dianne is very good at what she does. There is no wasted time so results are quick and obvious. Doctor is learning the basic commands we covered, but more importantly, Dianne taught me how to command much greater respect and obedience from him. I would recommend Dianne Lawrence to anyone seeking help with dog training and obedience. LORI PORET
“HER STYLE IS GENTLE, BUT FIRM, AND COMMANDS RESPECT FROM THE DOG WITHOUT BEING HARSH.“
We had a great experience with Dianne Lawrence when she gave our puppy (mixed german shepherd/lab) obedience training including walking on a leash and most important, teaching the dog how to behave around people and other dogs. Her style is gentle, but firm, and commands respect from the dog without being harsh. She also focuses on the human relationship with the dog and makes you understand your role in the dog's behavior. Dianne's focus is to not only train the dog, but to teach you as a dog owner to train the dog. Along with the general obedience training, Dianne also taught us how to train our dog to sit, lie down, come, and stay. We have nothing but positive things to say about Dianne and recommend her wholeheartedly as a fantastic dog trainer. Our dog loved Dianne, and was eagerly wagging his tail every time he saw her.

“YOU HAVE CLEARLY SHOWN US HOW TO DEMONSTRATE THE ACTS OF BEING A TRUE LEADER TO OUR PET.”
We just wanted to say thank you again for how much stronger you have made our bond with Oreo. You have clearly showed us how to demonstrate the acts of being a true leader to our pet. The biggest accomplishment was during our latest visit to the vet. Using the commands we were taught in training, Oreo was able to listen, sit, and contain herself to where the Vet had no trouble with examining Oreo's heart beat, stomach, teeth and ears. It was amazing to not have another nurse be called in to hold Oreo down during past visits and not be embarrassed by Oreo's disobedience. Thanks again! Brian and Masami
“YOU HAVE BEEN A TRULY VALUABLE RESOURCE”
Dianne, I wanted to thank you for the tremendous support you have been with my dog, and all the accompanying issues. Our lessons with you have helped tremendously! You have been a truly valuable resource--I can't tell you how much I appreciate your advice. Thank you so much. Shab
"HE NOW RESPONDS TO OUR COMMANDS 95% OF THE TIME, IS MORE ATTENTIVE, CALM AND HAPPY"
I can't believe how much our little baby Jacquard has changed since we started training with Diane. We could already see the change after our 1st class. We really love that she spent a lot of time training us as parents as much as training the dog. She is very hands on, she knows what she's doing and she is 100% worth it. But you have to know that she will give you exercises to do at home and unless you do them, it won't work. Diane will give you the method, but you have to do your homework! Our dog was all over the place, barked at everything, and never listened to us. He now responds to our commands 95% of the time, is more attentive, calm and happy! And you know the saying "HAPPY DOG, HAPPY FAMILY"!!! Deborah Meniane

"READING OR WATCHING VIDEO'S ABOUT DOG-TRAINING JUST WASN'T ENOUGH"
"Our puppy Leia is confident, intelligent, and fearless - and although we adore these things about her, it also makes for a difficult-to-train puppy! Reading or watching videos about dog-training just wasn't enough! Dianne was able to guide us through the basics while demonstrating the subtle differences in approach that make for successful communication with our puppy. At the end of our four weeks, Dianne had given us a plethora of communication tools that allowed us to continue building a trusting and loving relationship with Leia." Thank you for everything! Best, Ken, Stephanie, and Leia Stephy
"SHE WAS INCREDIBLY PATIENT AND HELPFUL"
Working with Dianne was a wonderful experience. She was incredibly patient and helpful. After only four sessions with her, my dog can sit, stay, and wait (and much more)--all things that I never thought he woul do!! She is very easy to get along with and always was kind and sweet to my dog! Thanks again, Talia
