"I had interviewed about 30 dog sitters, handlers, trainers and none compared to Adelita. Right from the start, having never seen her work with any dogs prior, I could see she was the one I was looking for. My Mastiff, Blue, treated her with respect and was very calm and willing around her. She is responsible and I am so lucky to have found her."
"I hired Adelita because I saw results coming through my door routinely and I knew she was competent enough to help get my dog trained.
I recommend her to all of my clients who need obedience training."
~ Dr. William Martin DVM
"Our dogs were like pack animals before Adelita trained them. Because we had multiple dogs it was hard to distiguish from where the trouble was coming from. Adelita got to the bottom of that and we recommend her to anyone. She is great!
"My husband and I decided to add to our dog family of 2 basset hounds a 5 ½ year old rescued bloodhound named Duchess. Neither of us had any experience with a 100 lb. dog and out of necessity began to investigate training options before she arrived. Our vet, Dr. Martin, recommended Adelita from his own personal experience with her as a trainer of his dogs as well as Adelita’s experience and reputation with large and challenging dogs.
Adelita was consistent and stern with Duchess but not loud and severe. With Duchess this made all the difference and she began to listen. What started as a distant skittish dog has turned into an obedient, affectionate and happy member of the family!
As if that wasn’t enough dog hair in our home and since Duchess had adapted so well after 1 year, we decided it was time to add another bloodhound to our family. This time we rescued a 3 ½ year old female, Claire, tipping the scales at over 100 lbs. and from a loving family that just could not handle her exuberance any longer. Adelita was here from the beginning, evaluating her and designing a training program specifically for a very different dog than Duchess even though she was the same breed. Claire was well adjusted but had had the freedom to run and bark and apparently no lead training what so ever. This was going to be a challenge to modify her behavior on and off the lead so we didn’t get kicked out of the neighborhood and we could enjoy our walks with both the bloodhounds.
Adelita again quickly assessed Claire’s behavior and gave us a very different approach to training her effectively, which of course, involved training both of us as well.
I have found Adelita’s methods to be uniquely customized, effective and humane. I continue to recommend her to anyone with animal training and behavior issues!

"After the two week training program, I received so many compliments from friends and neighbors on how well behaved my dog Luna had become in such a short time.
This program not only improved my Luna's behavior, but taught me so many important things about training, continuously improving, and maintaining this good behavior for a lifetime."
"We would like to recommend Adelita. We have a Soft coated Wheaten Terrier who was already puppy trained in the local park but showed aggression towards some dogs - that's when I hired Adelita - a very good dog trainer. She was very professional-kind-knowledgeable-punctual and my kids (2 boys 12 and 16 years old) loved working with her and my puppy Cinnamon loved her too.

We always marveled whenever we saw that “special” dog without a leash who would always stay at the owner’s side or inside its yard. No amount of distraction, whether kids or other animals, ever seemed to bother such dogs. We assumed it was all genetic or a character trait of the breed, never thinking for a moment that, like kids, dogs could be trained to behave well!
That all changed after we met Adelita following our adoption of Yuki, a Samoyed pup. Although we had previously owned a Golden, this was our first puppy, and after a few weeks with Yuki, we knew we needed help. As sweet a dog as she was, Adelita quickly determined that we were being “owned” by Yuki, and we signed up for a two week training program.
Adelita made a deep impression, on both Yuki and her human family, from the very first lesson. Having followed her training and guidance, Yuki is now a different dog, the very “special” type of dog we always admired and longed for. We’ll be able to enjoy Yuki’s company much more now for many years to come thanks to Adelita’s training.
Mojo's testimonial is undergoing translation right now:
"Woof-woof. Woof woof woof woof woof. Woof!" - Mojo
"Your care towards Maggie was more than we ever could have anticipated. Compassionate, thorough, dedicated. You brought her back to life."
"I met Adelita while walking my Staffordshire Bull Terrier down the street. Actually, he was walking me. She was training another dog and I could see that she was demonstrably capable of creating a calm and managable dog.
"I met Adelita a couple of months ago while on my route. I told her that I was concerned about the dogs I would meet while working my postal route. Others had told me to use cruel methods to handling the dogs but the things that Adelita taught me, positive reinforcement, about what to say and do, helped my relationship with other dogs. As a result they are more friendly to me."
"Our dog Lily doesn't beg at the table - she eats at her own dish. She knows her boundaries. I love that. The training my kids and all members of the family received was successful. It helped in getting control of Lily - getting her to do what was expected. Adelita made it possible in making our relationship with Lily a success and all the while keeping Lily enthusiastic and in great spirit!"
"Adelita is a great trainer. She trained my then 5 month old German Sheperd (Taz) with on/off leash training. Taz not only walks on a leash but off as well, and obeys all the basic commands i.e. sit/come/down and stay. I am very well please with her assistance.
"Adelita was recommended to me last year by the owner of the cageless camp where I send my mastiff for ranch fun when I need to be out of town. I was having trouble with my 2 yr old male - he is a rescue that I adopted at about 1-1/2 years old. He was great in the house and was OK on leash, but definitely had the alpha thing going when off-leash - he didn't listen to me whether I was telling him to come, to not to eat picnic trash or to come when he was getting too close to an unfriendly dog.
"I know my Chinese Cresteds were quite a challenge for Adelita because they both had such diverse personalities - totally different to one another. I was very happy with the results that she got. She not only trained my dogs but also took the time to train me as well so that I could maintain what she had instilled into them. She is an amazing trainer and has a genuine personality herself which she imbues into the dogs. She truly cares about her work.
She is highly recommended.
"I saw the signs and knew something was coming. Our Scottie was showing signs of aggression and eventually my smallest daughter ended up getting hurt. I found Adelita at Good Dog K9 Training and she was able to help me through her nutritional and behavioral methods to get my dog back to the friendly boy he used to be. This is a two week program for not just my dog but my entire family as well.
"We have a 1 year old crazy Rottweiler named Gianna. We called Adelita
Adelita had the whole family play all kind of games in front of Gianna
As well as teaching our family how to interact and "parent" our dog,
Adelita has a welcoming approach to all people, and is not afraid to use
We would highly recommend Adelita for dog training to anyone with a
"I'm so happy with you and the training. Foxy was so crazy before and now he's doing so well. I totally recommend you - you are the best."
"Adelita trained my Mishka in Armenian and the results were fabulous - more than expected."
"Adelita stands out because she tells it like it is. She didn't sugar coat it. She told the truth and the dogs are wonderful because of her. They're not the same dogs - especially the Jack Russell. I now have three very manageable dogs. She is the best - the dogs love her and I love her."
"I recommend Adelita Alvarez. I contacted Adelita to help me with an Akita/Sherpherd mix and another dog I have. The Akita/Shepherd (Shay) can be a little scary at times. She is very large. Adelita had no backoff and immediately went to work to establish a relationship with Shay. Tasha my 60 lb dog tends to instigate and cause Shay to react. No problem there. Adelita had it all under control. My dogs are 8 years old. I did use a trainer when they were about 1 year old for myself.
Since then I had hired an assistant who would take them out for walks daily and they would just control her. So this is why I contacted Adelita to solve this problem.
My assistant and my 2 dogs learned a lot and everything is wonderful now. I even learned some new things and my relationship with my dogs is even stronger because of it.
"I called Adelita to help me because my dogs were driving me crazy. Not having the knowlege to correct them I knew that having a dog trainer would be the best thing to do.
When I saw a picture advertizing services (the one with the three dogs and herself) I figured if she could train those dogs, she could train my 6-8 month old Golden Retriever and Husky.
"Adelita Alvarez definitely has the gift of interacting with animals. I was so overwhelmed when I brought my new puppy into our home. I was having so many problems and in just one session with Adelita, I saw amazing results and changes. I kid you not when I say that my Malamute's behvaior improved after just one initial meeting with Adelita. She has an honest and clear approach and way of communicating with animals and to people. She even trained my husband and I to be able to carry out the training long after the sessions were over. Since working with Adelita, I have become very involved in animal rescue and I continue to use her tips and techniques and still find they are amazingly useful. I will forever be thankful to Good Dog K9 Training for giving me the gift of understanding my Malamute, Osa. " - T. Sullivan

My wife and I would like to thank you for the wonderful work that you did with our two Labrador Retriever puppies, Penny and Polly. We are grateful for all you have done for us and I'm sure that Penny and Polly thank you also.
Having you come to the house and see first hand what the problems were was very helpful. The entire family is now well versed in dog handling.
I wish you all the best and would recommend you to any future clients.

"I first learned about Adelita through my Vet, Dr. Martin at the Parkview Pet Clinic in Glendale. Dr. Martin had also used Adelita's services for his own dog and spoke highly of her.
She seemed to understand the fears this dog has and reassured him that he was doing fine and that he was safe with her. Adelita is gentle but firm with dogs. By the end of our lessons we were able to walk on busy sidewalks without fear of incidents and Hunter seemed genuinely glad to see her.
We had signed up for private lessons but I know Adelita also teaches group classes. She arrives on time and keeps her commitments on the training schedule. I'm glad I found her.
