My wife and I have been working with Courtney to improve our dog, Eggs' leash aggression and on-leash anxiety. Courtney has been fantastic. Eggs has improved significantly -- we can now walk him nearer to strange dogs without incident, and he's a much happier guy on his walks. Courtney is flexible, easy to get ahold of and is extremely passionate about her craft. Highly recommend!

My husband and I adopted our first dog, Pippa, and we had a lot to learn! Courtney was wonderful. She successfully trained us (and Pippa) on positive reinforcement methods and helped us all adjust to life with each other. My husband and I are two busy professionals, but Courtney makes training so easy and convenient! She often came right to our Oakland apartment. We can't say enough good things about Courtney, and we always recommend her to dog park friends.

I originally met Courtney over a year ago when training my new French bulldog puppy. Now I have a rescue dog with a few issues to resolve, and Courtney has been amazing! She is very knowledgable about dog behavior and I truly like her positive reward based training style. She is professional, reliable and has a flexible schedule that has worked with my inflexible schedule. I highly recommend Devoted Dog Training!!!

Courtney was great with our pitbull. She was very patient with us and our dog. She helped us understand his anxiety, and gave us concrete homework to do after each session. She was also good about working out a convenient schedule for our meetings. Four paws up for Courtney!

We originally worked with Courtney in group puppy classes, and loved her approach and knowledge. She is now giving our five month old black lab individual training and is fantastic. She genuinely cares about our dog, and our dog loves her! She shows us, and has us practice, the specific commands and approaches we need to use to address problem behaviors like leash pulling, jumping, mouthing and dog socializing. We really appreciate her ability to explain the psychology and rationale behind each training method as well as helping us recognize, understand and respond to our dog's behavior and cues. In one thirty minute session our lab puppy calmly walked to Courtney multiple times without any leash pulling or jumping—big progress for us! Highly recommend Devoted Dog Training.

Courtney listens without judgement, truly gets to know the family and the dogs, and trains/teaches in a way that fits best for that group. We are SO happy to work with Courtney at Devoted Dog Training.

Courtney is very dedicated and knowledgeable. She trains both the humans and the dogs so they can work together. She is great to work with and has done amazing things to help us with our dogs.


Concord, CA

We have a rescued Cane Corso/pit bull mix who spent the first 4 years of his life as a bait dog. Needless to say he has leash reactivey issues. We were looking for someone to help Charlie be more comfortable on leash around other dogs. We started to notice his progress within the first 4 weeks, and every week since has been even better. Charlie is learning to trust us and calm down, and we are becoming more comfortable with reading his body language and learning the tricks to keep him calm when other dogs are near. Courtney is experienced, knowledgeable and a huge advocate for bully breeds. She has been a huge part of Charlie's recovery and transition into a family pet! We can't thank her enough!


Concord, CA

My dog Riley and I are big fans of Courtney. Through many months of agility training and scent work, I always found Courtney to be patient and enthusiastic. She knows her stuff. In every session, I always got what I came for—a tired and happy dog. I highly recommend Devoted Dog Training!


Pittsburg, CA

I cannot say enough good things… Courtney makes training fun for the dog and the human. She showed me how to work with my fearful dog, Molly, to make her more comfortable in stressful situations. She even gives homework! I plan on continuing our education with Devoted Dog Training.


Concord, CA

Courtney has been instrumental in training myself and my dog. Not only does she have a wonderful connection with dogs, she also connects beautifully with their owners. She is very sensitive to the owner-dog relationship and utilizing the best techniques for you and your situation. I look forward to working with her more!


Pleasant Hill, CA

Courtney is very knowledgeable, and our two little Pomeranians LOVE her. But most importantly, we are learning how to be responsible dog owners by introducing our pups to new experiences so that they can be calm, happy, positive pups!


Dublin, CA

I'm a delightfully satisfied student of Courtney. She helped transform my unruly puppy into a well-behaved, sweet, cheerful young dog who passed her Canine Good Citizen award with ease. Courtney is a talented and knowledgeable trainer with a clear, gentle way of teaching. She is wonderful at breaking down commands to simple, executable steps for swift learning and retention for both dog and owner.  Courtney is spectacular...highly recommend her.


Pittsburg, CA

We've been working with Courtney on scent lessons with our corgi. Our pup has an independent streak, but she gives Courtney her undivided attention! Best of all, Courtney always gives us a better understanding of what motivates our dog, how to keep her mentally engaged, and how we can have better dog-human communication. Our pup loves to work with her, and we continue to see the benefits of training long after each lesson is over.
