Reviews and Canine Graduates
We highly recommend Canine Companion Consulting! We recently rescued a dog and have been working with Canine Companion Consulting in private sessions for almost 4 weeks. In addition to the private sessions, we have access to daily support by email and phone, which has allowed us to manage small behavior changes in between sessions. It's my understanding that this is not a benefit offered by most dog trainers, and we have found this to be extremely helpful! We are so thankful for Beth and Wayne who are providing us with the tools we need to be successful pet parents!(Google ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)
If you are in need of Pet Training, then I recommend Beth and Wayne of Canine Companion Consulting because they help you see that it's really both of you (you and your dog) that need training. It's all about communication and they have fun and creative ways to develop that necessary communication.
On the more business side of the fence, they are super organized, always prompt, flexible when necessary, available with new ideas, and always compassionate. Best investment that you can make !! (Google ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)
These people truly understand dogs I would recommend them for any situation very nice people incredibly knowledgeable every minute that your dog spends with them is very worth it our dog was and extremely anxious German Shepherd that we were mistaken as aggression and now we have a calm well behaved German Shepherd excellent job on their behalf they pinpointed the problems within minutes gave us helpful tools and great explanations for them I just can't say enough.

We love how Canine Companion Consulting is helping us with our puppy's training! They are professional teachers and trainers who focus on helping dog parents understand the "why" behind the "what"! I highly recommend them for all dog owners, no matter what stage of life! We love CCC! They are wonderful teachers, and experienced dog handlers! We plan to continue taking more classes with them!

Beth and Wayne truly love dogs in all the sizes, shapes, personalities, and problems they come in and with. Who else would have thought of a support group for pet parents of pooches with serious health or behavior problems? They understood my adorable, barky, bouncy, smart, devoted -- and very dog-reactive -- young German Shepherd / Australian kelpie mix from day one. They figured out a way for him to participate in Agility for Fun that was right for him and for me, not to mention how to get him to class in a calmer state. They consider, and are delighted by, each dog as a unique individual and each human-dog duo as a unique team. (Google ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)
Our new rescue dog has been with us three weeks. We had 3 one-on-one meetings with CCC in our home to help with adjustment. With compassion, humor and education they have been invaluable in guiding us to be the best family we can be for him. Highly recommend CCC. (Google ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)
Beth and Wayne were amazing to work with! Much love and care they have for my pets situation. Their training techniques were easy to follow and apply. Gemma (dog) is already responding well to me on commands. Thanks Beth and Wayne! (Thumbtack ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 2/18/18)
Beth and Wayne are dog AND people whisperers! They know so much about dog-people behavior and interactions! Our German Shepherd -- and her people -- are much smarter after just one session with Beth and Wayne. We're looking forward to more learning and more fun with them! We’ve learned more from Beth and Wayne than in all our years of college, graduate school, and life! We live happily with our two well-trained dogs, thanks to them. Their knowledge is bottomless, they are kind and fun, and are wonderfully generous with their time and clever ideas. And our doggies adore them! (Facebook⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐- 8/2/17) (Google ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)
Before we had Beth and Wayne help us with our dog, we couldn't even cut his nails or we could not take him to the vet without him freaking out and not letting anyone touch him. Our dog had fear aggression, so we asked Beth and Wayne to help us out. After few private lessons we started to understand how to handle our dog, so he started to be nicer to us and strangers. We could start introducing him to new people and trimming his nails without him barking or nibbling at us. (Yelp ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 10/25/16)

My new puppy was terrified of everything and by everything, I mean everything. It was a big scary world and my 6lb Mal-Shih wanted nothing to do with it. Beth and Wayne were miracle workers for my little Teddy. He went from hiding and literally trying to climb into a desk to escape other dog to walking around freely and allowing other dogs to approach. This was all within the first 4 weeks! He has really come out of his shell and he has such spunk! He is now in puppy daycare and he has a blast. Teddy has even made friends with a Great Pyrenees! I never could have gotten him to this point on my own without Canine Companion Consulting. I would highly recommend them. I cannot wait to take more classes. (Facebook ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 10/18/16)
Both Beth and Wayne are wonderful and patient with my dog Penny. She has improved so much and is becoming less fearful and anxious everyday! Just a wonderful place and team for my baby. (Google ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)
They helped us with our Boston Terrier. They are brilliant and innovative and made us better pet owners. Even more important they clearly love their canine clients. We have had many dogs over the years but still had a lot to learn. We will always be grateful to them. (Facebook ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 8/14/16)
Canine Companion Consulting has worked with my rescue dog, Brutus. After only three sessions, he has improved by more than 150%. Beth and Wayne have the necessary skills to work with all breeds of dogs. I am very pleased with the results from their sessions and would recommend them.
When I met Beth and Wayne, I knew immediately they were the right people to hire to help me in my training efforts. They were explaining "dog culture" and the importance of learning how to communicate with your dog in a way that he can understand. My pup and I have a fantastic relationship, but being a rescue dog, Tobie has always had an unrealistic fear of men and children, which has resulted in some undesirable behavior. Beth and Wayne helped me understand how I could help Tobie build trust in men over time, and they showed me how creating positive experiences would begin to change his attitude. I can really see a difference already! He is less likely to bark at strangers and more relaxed in general. Beth and Wayne, Thanks for all of your assistance with Tobie! You are truly gifted in helping humans understand their canines.
Jake and Dublin
“Beth is a miracle worker. We have a very large one-year-old Labrador Retriever named Jake that refused to cooperate with us. Jake would pull on his leash until he almost passed out, go crazy at the sound of a doorbell, jump up on our guests, and steal remotes and all other household items for his personal enjoyment. We put in hours and hours upon work with him, but he was simply not getting it. Beth in one short hour showed us that we were simply training him all wrong. She showed us proper techniques and methods to reinforce his good deeds and deter his bad habits. We would recommend Beth to all owners of a rambunctious or mischievous dog or puppy. We will be using Beth again for our Pug puppy, Dublin, who we anticipate will be a handful when he grows up.”

Mahoney says, “I love to relax in my fuzzy pet bed, it’s the perfect fit! I get so much attention from everyone in my new family. I’ve been with them now for about one month now.”
~Bernadette, Emily, Jack, and Sarah ~
“Your help with training gives me more confidence which in turn has made me relax more with him”
Schatzi was rescued by his owner from a puppy mill in Missouri where he, unfortunately, spent about 4 years. “I have learned Patience, Patience, Patience!”

Really detailed and professional. highly recommend. Only positive reinforcement. ~Andy S. (Google ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)
Great folks offering northern Colorado services in dog training! Not only are they great at what they do but they are big supporters of Animal House Rescue & Grooming, a non-profit dog rescue! ~Hattie S. (Google ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)
We took our fearful little mutt Juniper to their Fear Response 6-week class and saw so much improvement, even our friends and family could see it! Since that class (I think two years ago?) she has been a much more confident little dog. If we hadn't moved to Golden we'd be back for their Agility class (it looks like a ton of fun!). Maybe in the future they'll open up another branch? 🤞Would and have recommended to anyone who wants a better relationship and better understanding of their dog! ~Nagem R.

Beth and Wayne were incredible! We learned such great tips that our dog has already started to pick up on! They were very patient and had a way of explaining things that just made sense. I cannot recommend them enough! ~Katie H. (Thumbtack ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/8/17)
We highly recommend Beth and Wayne for your all dog training needs.

Beth and Wayne were super helpful in not only working with a specific issue we had with our dog, Walker (recall), their suggestion of the Mind, Body and Nose class really opened up new activities for our ball-obsessed dog! He really liked the class. ~Sharlee H. (Facebook ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/14/17)
Before I met Beth and Wayne, I felt so completely lost when trying to train my fearful dog. Behavioral issues with dogs can be scary, confusing, and in some cases heartbreaking without the right help. Beth and Wayne have shown me several different techniques to use in different situations, that are surprisingly simple but work absolute wonders! Not only do they have the experience and knowledge to help anyone with their companion, their teaching techniques make it clear and easy to understand. They have taught me so much about my dog as well as myself. Confidence is key! and without the help of Beth and Wayne I would not have had that confidence in myself and my dog in order to be successful with training. Absolutely wonderful people!!! ~ Elanore R. (Facebook -⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 7/9/16)
CCC are the best dog trainers in Fort Collins! They are incredibly knowledgeable and help you understand your dogs behavior and how to adjust your own behavior to get the results you're looking for. I love how they consult in your own home with you and your dog in your normal environment. What wonderful people and worth every penny! ~Astrid M. (Google ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)

Beth and Wayne really care about the health and safety of my pets and want to make sure I understand what they are trying to teach us. They are very prepared for each class and try to cover all points possible at each meeting. ~ Debbie C. (Thumbtack ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 1/4/15)
