Client Testimonials

Taught us so much – not just about the technicalities of dog training but also about ourselves. Tools are as important as a patient heart. Their sincerity, intuitiveness and generosity with their time has definitely touched our hearts.
Stef, attended Foundation Class with Pepé


As a first-time owner, I had many queries during the lessons and they did not rush through in answering them and explained the methods to fix certain issues. This shows that they are very passionate in what they are doing and truly care for the owner and dogs that are with them. It has been a fruitful experience for both my dog and myself. I had gained a lot of knowledge from the class.
Janelle, attended Foundation Class with Hugo


Canine Solutions’ Foundation Class was really an eye-opener for me. I had gained a lot of knowledge from the class – in terms of engaging, luring and creating new experiences for my dog through positive reinforcements. Ken, the trainer, is one who is knowledgeable and most willing to answer any queries. I would definitely encourage dog owners to go for this Foundation Class to understand and build better rapport with their dogs!
Rose, attended Foundation Class with Sushi


Ken covered everything well, especially as we had Q&A in between the practical part. I especially appreciate it when Ken broke down the practical part into simple steps – when to say the word and reward timing.
Felita, attended Foundation Class with Whiskey


The course lesson theory and practical (is) very useful in our everyday dealings with our dogs. Also explained and demonstrated the techniques and it has made it easier to manage, engage and understand our dog’s behaviour
Wesley, attended Foundation Class with Becca
