So I recently got a Rottweiler and he was a little fresh puppy my dad breeds them so I got myself a dog because recently around 2020 I lost my other dog so I took a year off and I got another dog. I was searching and searching for a private dog trainer and I found Andi and I did six weeks with her one time a week which was very very reasonable price and I definitely appreciate her I didn't continue only because holiday was approaching and just money was very tight but I will definitely recommend her to a lot of new customers that are looking for a weasel prices and at home dog training in the Long Beach Orange County area.
I found Andi on Yelp and she responded on the same day. We scheduled a phone consultation and I decided that she would be a great fit for my puppy. The 6 weeks flew by. We wish that Andi could come every week because our puppy absolutely adores her! Andi uses 100% positive reinforcement training and our puppy responded very well to it. She was also great with my whole family, who sat in on most trainings (highly encouraged). My puppy was play biting a lot, and now, he is an absolute angel. He only licks us now! He also used to bite our shoelaces but Andi taught us some techniques to deter him from biting things. I must say, consistent training really led to some amazing results, and my puppy is only 4 months old. He has a lot more training to do, but Andi really set a great foundation for his learning. I will always recommend Andi to anyone needing a trainer!
Diamond dogs training was a blessing for our 10month old puppy. Andi ( the trainer) was very patient with our unruly pup who barked at everything and couldn't walk without pulling her leash . She was out of control. We thought we'd have to give her up. A six weeks 1 hour session in our backyard ( wearing masks and socially distancing) really helped our pup improve her most problematic habits .Andi helped train "us "with techniques and methods to work on to improve our pup's road to being that perfect family dog. After each class Andi would send " homework" on everything we did in that particular session. This really helped, having a written explanation of everything we covered that day. It made working g with our pup so much easier. Any specific behavior that needed to be addressed, Andi would have help suggestions . She'd even send a Video site to help you to work with our pup. Our pup loved seeing Andi. We must say our pup has improved and has become our almost perfect family member! DDT was worth every cent!
Highly recommend Andi for training your pet. Compassionate and knowledgeable... great results with Izzy our energetic Border Terrier!
We r so grateful to have found and chosen Andi to be our dog trainer. She is everything you would want. She loves and respects our dogs, is professional in every way and delivers results for a reasonable price. In Just in a few sessions, our dogs r much better behaved and more confident. She comes with our highest recommendation.
I reached out and Andi got back to me quickly! Andi was so polite in answering my questions and after discussing my situation she let me know that she might not be the perfect person to help in my case. Wow! I love the honesty, no trying to get me to spend money in an area she didnt think we'd be the perfect fit! I highly recomend reaching out to diamond dogs training. Hopefully I'll be able to work with this amazing company in the future if any other issues arise. Thanks Andi!
My puppy just finished her 6 week puppy training with Andi! During this time, Andi taught us how to sit, down, stay, wait, leash walking, go to your place and gave us helpful tips/advices on other issues we were having with the puppy. I took the class with my puppy's best friend and at times, the class could be difficult because they were rowdy and I'm sure it was hard for Andi to try to teach us, but she always very patient about it. Overall, Andi was very helpful and thorough with everything! Andi was always very kind and our puppy loved her. You can tell Andi truly loves dogs and just wants your puppy to be the best they can be. Thank you, Andi!
If I could give more stars I would! Andi is amazing! She has given us a lot of information and helped break things down that we were having trouble with. Each week our puppy is growing and learning so much. Andi will go at your pace and is very knowledgeable. If you are thinking about a trainer I definitely recommend Andi
Diamond Dog Training is great. We would recommend having Andi as your trainer. She is patient, kind, and she helped our family learn positive ways to get our dog, Skye, to obey. Diamond Dogs always has homework for us to make sure we are doing the work to make sure we understand...and so does our Skye. If you need help with your dog obeying, please call Diamond Dogs. You will not be disappointed and as you see your pet learn you are also learning. I feel Andi became part of our family, we looked forward to seeing her and learning from her. We are extremely happy and are planning to have her here for our older dog. I give her 5 stars because she deserves that and more. I trust her, and even better our dog trusts her. If you or anyone you know needs help with training, have them call....you won't be sorry.
I must say this French bulldog was tough, Mrs Andy made it look real easy, I highly recommend her she is very patient an knowledgeable when it come to your pup!!
Well my boxer he came to celebrate with his lil bro thanks Diamond dog...

I met Andi just as the Safe-At-Home quarantine went into effect. With a new puppy, I was desperately looking for a class to get me started training my high energy pup. With in-person classes shut down, Andi suggested we train remotely using the Zoom video platform. Dogs love and need boundaries, and they also love to learn. Andi knows dogs and puppies well. She will work with you, depending on your needs, to build your confidence in handling your dog. Andi's methods and advice are invaluable and fun for you and your pooch. She is all about teaching you to train your dog to be calm, happy and obedient. Diamond Dogs Training gets 5 Woofs!!!!!
Love Andi!!! She is the most positive trainer we have ever had! She started training our Shih Tzu puppy at 8 weeks and when she was a year old she was certified to be a therapy dog! She was able to get her AKC Good Citizen certificate, and is the sweetest, most polite dog, and I know it is due to Andy's positive dog training approach! Her patience and professional attitude made all of our training classes so much fun and so rewarding and I feel that we are so much closer to our little Sophie because of all the training classes we took with her!
I got a puppy the last of July. She was a 2 month old corgi/border collie mix with lots of energy! I'm a senior citizen so such an energetic breed wasn't the best match for me but I had her now so I was going to give her the best home she could ever have. I found Andi from Diamond Dogs Training. She is fantastic. She is punctual, works well with my dog Lucy, very knowledgeable, has great ideas, and is extremely helpful to me. If you're looking for a GREAT dog trainer call Andi. Suzy E.
We just finished up our 6th week, Andi as helped us a lot. I come from old school spack them when they are bad, yell at them and choke them not to pull. She showed us another way with out all the hurting. You can tell our dog responds a lot more with her way. We are now going to apply what she as taught us. We will be calling her back in the future. Thanks Andi.
We were so happy to find Andi and Diamond Dog training and would recommend her to any one. Andi is truly a "gem". Soon after adopting our 5 year old lab from a local shelter, our family of first time dog owners found ourselves looking for help. We knew very little about how to take care of a dog and wanted to seek help from a professional trainer. We called around and found several that worked in groups or required us to bring our dog to a training site. Diamond Dogs appealed to us because the training sessions took place in our home and neighborhood. Andi, owner of Diamond Dogs, was wonderful from start to finish. We set up a series of 6 basic training sessions. Andi was very flexible with scheduling and encouraged us to engage the whole family in our training sessions. She helped us determine our goals and needs as a new "dog family" and provided us with personalized, fun training sessions along with session notes on skills to practice. In addition to basic obedience training, she helped us problem solve issues like bathrooming in appropriate areas, using the doggie door, establishing healthy feeding and exercise routines, appropriate ways to positively reinforce good behavior, how to approach socializing with other dogs, loose leash walking and so much more!
Andi is seriously the best. It has been a very long time since we had a dog and I decided to get a puppy. We were miserably unprepared on how to train him. Andi to the rescue..... In 6 short weeks, our puppy is potty trained, can sit and lay down on command. We are working on loose leash walking and stay. We wouldn't know what to do without Andi. If you need a trainer, look no farther!! She is also incredibly patient with little kids and their interruptions, she handles it all like a pro. I've asked get to give us some kid training lessons too!!! Lol
We can't say enough good things about Andrea and her Diamond Dog puppy training. Andi was such a wonderful guide and resource in training our new mini-AussieDoodle puppy. Her patience, knowledge and skill in training our puppy was only matched by her teaching ability for training us! As first time dog owners after many years of only having cats, we enrolled in Andi's 6-week private Puppy Kindergarten class and are so glad we did. She clearly loves dogs and enjoys teaching them. She came to our house each week, exactly on time, happy to see our girl Bleu, who was always overjoyed to see her. She taught us using 100% positive reinforcement training, and boy did Bleu ever respond. She taught us how to get Bleu to do what we wanted her to do in everyday home situations as well as the basic commands of come, sit, stay, down, leave it, drop it and walking off and on leash. She was amazing and our puppy responded to her loving, thoughtful training techniques. When we had a biting problem with our new puppy, Andi knew what to do to stop it and contacted her mentors of other professional trainers to make sure she wasn't missing any behavioral issues that might have been contributing to it. Andi encouraged us to call her if we had any problems, which we were especially happy about. We needed reminders and repetititon just like the puppy did and were so glad Andi provided them whenever we needed it. Her thoughtfulness towards us as well as Bleu made each session fun, happy and full of love. One thing I really appreciated was the written handouts of important things to remember, a puppy checklist of all the things we'd need, puppy socialization recommendations and Ten Secrets to Your Training Success. She allowed time for note taking too--which my forgetful brain really welcomed. We realized through her expert lessons and discussions with us that our puppy's success depended on our our willingness to continue the training each day. Her methods really helped us develop a deeper bond with our puppy and six weeks later we are so much more attached and devoted to little Bleu than we were when we started. We are so glad we did these six weeks of in-home puppy training and got the personal, loving and expert help in the comfort and reality of our own home. Andi could see what the environment was like for living with and training our dog and tailored everything to solve our specific problems or enrich the good things we were doing for her. It was the best thing we could have done for our new puppy and we are grateful beyond measure for our experience with Diamond Dogs.
