Chill Out Dog TrainingExcellentChill Out Dog Training5.0 Based on 273 reviews fromSee all reviews ★★★★★ We have a GSP who loved to pull, be extremely stubborn, and chase anything that catches his eye. Within 1 session, Scott helped us begin e-collar training and by the end of the session, our dog no longer pulled. The second and third sessions really helped us with advancing in walking our dog with ease, learn addition commands, practice recall, and excel in more high traffic environments. We couldn’t recommend chill out dog training enough!Zach H.Zach H. ★★★★★ These guys are seriously the best. Our dog is generally very good but got way over excited when we would pass people on walks and was becoming a danger to herself and others. One sessions with Cameron and it’s like a light bulb went off for both of us. She now has zero issues walking by people on the sidewalk, and I have the confidence that I could handle her if she ever does again. Best money I’ve ever spent!Tori S.Tori S. ★★★★★ Training with Cameron was THE best decision we've made for our dog Birdie. She is a rescue who was really leash reactive (dogs, squirrels, bikes, skateboard, etc), reactive at the window with anything passing by, with guests, in the car, etc. We tried so much other training (10+ sessions with another trainer and a 6 week reactivity course ) as well as medication which were all somewhat helpful but only very minimally with the reactivity (about a year process). We decided to try the e-collar package with Cameron in part because of all the positive reviews and also how comfortable I felt with the potential plan after chatting via the phone for a consultation. We started to notice a change quite literally after the first session. We just completed our third session and 6 months later she is a totally different dog. We can now go for walks without worry, go camping, take her on patio's, and really live life with her, versus around her. I was hesitant about the e-collar with all the conflicting information you see online but how Cameron teaches you to use it feels really fair for the dog. We can't thank Chill Out dog training enough!!!Lillie S.Lillie S. ★★★★★ I was scared to walk my pup before meeting Cameron. I now feel like I have the resources and skills to be a better owner to my leash reactive pup.Stacey H.Stacey H. ★★★★★ I highly recommend starting your training journey with Scott for the benefit of both yourself and your family. I have personally experienced wasting a significant amount of time, money, and effort with other trainers before finding Scott. However, with just two sessions, Scott was able to effectively bring my dogs under control. The response from my dogs was swift, allowing us to enjoy a much more enjoyable time together as a cohesive unit. Scott's friendly demeanor, approachability, and extensive knowledge in training make the entire process pleasant and effortless.Janice G.Janice G. ★★★★★ I worked with Cameron for our second session with my reactive dog. The first was when she was a puppy so her bad habits have had a couple years to harden. Cameron is so clear in his explanations and guidance. My dog was having literal toddler tantrums and he was unbothered. I saw a lot of what I was doing wrong in trying to curb her reactivity but now know I need to be more firm to give my dog clearer boundaries. The goal is breweries and patios this summer so we will definitely be doing a follow up or two after lots of practice! Our two walks since the training session have already been immensely better! Highly recommend!Julie D.Julie D. ★★★★★ They worked a miracle in one session with my very challenging dog. Cameron is extremely calm and knowledgeable, and he is very good with both dogs and owners. Definitely recommend.Sue D.Sue D. ★★★★★ Scott absolutely changed our 6 year old doodle Nana’s and our lives for the better! She had such a barking problem, we had to keep the blinds closed all the time. She hated going on walks, and was very reactionary to sounds.She is a whole different dog, we are all so much happier! Huge thank you to Scott!Lara E.Lara E. ★★★★★ We reached out to chill out dog training in hopes that they could help our pup Maverick with leash reactivity, and a couple other things we wanted to work on with him. We met with Cameron and he did a phenomenal job by helping us and giving us the tools to help put our pup at ease on walks. Now we can take maverick to more populated areas like Wash park, and tons of hiking trails as the weather gets warmer. Chill out dog training rules and we highly recommend them!!Kayla S.Kayla S. ★★★★★ Had one training with Cameron and it was amazing. Super knowledge and nice dude and was able to fix my dog’s reactivity on leash in about 20 minutes. Couldn't recommend Cameron and this company more.cory L.cory L. ★★★★★ Before training with Cameron, my pittie mix struggled with anxiety and reactivity, making outings stressful. Cameron's holistic approach not only improved Denver's behavior but also boosted my confidence. His consistent support between sessions was invaluable. Our journey has been transformative, thanks to Cameron's expertise and dedication. Highly recommended!Kristen S.Kristen S. ★★★★★ I had gotten a lot of training for my pup and still couldn't break her of jumping up in people's face. She pulled me down lunging for the mailman once. I contacted Chill Out Dog Training. The package I got, came with an e-collar. I heard all the myths of how bad the e-collars were. A myth indeed. I learned how to properly use it and how effective it was. In one session, my pup was so much better. She picked up quickly how to make better choices.Scott is an excellent trainer. I learned a lot as well as my pup. I highly recommend Chill Out Dog Training for any issues your dog may have.Mary Sue C.Mary Sue C. ★★★★★ My only regret is not finding Chill Out Dog sooner. I cannot thank Scott enough for helping me with my reactive dog. Scott is truly a wealth of knowledge. He helped me deep dive into the my dogs behaviors to find the root causes behind his reactivity. Scott worked with me to develop a personalized plan and helped guide me and my dog to success through our training sessions. The night and day difference of my dogs behavior and his confidence is truly remarkable. I am extremely grateful and highly recommend Scott for anyone in need of a dog trainer with a reactive dog.Bryanna K.Bryanna K. ★★★★★ Scott did a phenomenal job with my dog and his unpredictable leash aggression. In just one session, he quickly identified what the issue was and how my dog would best respond to behavior modification. He gave me the confidence to continue working with my dog on my own, and it’s been positive ever since.I would recommend Chill Out Dog to anyone. I am happier, my dog is happier, and our walks are 100x more enjoyable!Sarah L.Sarah L. ★★★★★ I’ve worked with Cameron a couple of times and it truly is a miracle lol. My one dog has separation anxiety and we worked through techniques to help break down the anxiety which was highly effective. I added a baby pitbull to the family and after a few months, my older dog and the puppy were attacking one another…it was awful. I was convinced I’d have to rehome the pup. I reached out to Cameron and he guided me through training techniques in my home to help shift the aggressive behaviors. IT WORKED. I was a bit skeptical but it truly worked and the dogs are okay now. It’s pretty mind blowing honestly. I 100% recommend chill out dog training for both separation anxiety and aggressive behaviorsAshley S.Ashley S. ★☆☆☆☆ They charge $3/mile if you are more than 10 miles from their office. That’s a ridiculous fee.Ann S.Ann S. ★★★★★ After being a friendly pup, three years of living around aggressive dogs caused ours to snap and lash out at new dogs, making dog parks a no-go. After moving to Denver, we new we had to get her back to her friendly (if very spirited and dominant) self. What I expected to take several sessions was addressed in one.Tyler (.Tyler (. ★★★★★ We adopted our dog Nala in May of 2022 from a puppy mill in Iowa. Due to her experiences there, we had a long way to go to make her feel safe and comfortable. After about 7 months, we started to see some problem behaviors like separation anxiety, fear of men, strong reactions to minor noises or unexpected noises and incessant barking. We also struggled to have control over her when she would go on walks.We had a consultation call with Cameron and really liked his approach. Cameron has been SO helpful to us. He’s helped us to understand Nala’s behaviors, know how to anticipate them and mostly importantly, know how to respond.If you are considering using Chill Out Dog Training, it is worth every penny! We will be recommending Cameron to everyone we know who needs a little extra help with their furry friend!Jessica B.Jessica B. ★★★★★ I can’t say enough good things about Scott and Chill Out Dog Training. I have been working with Scott to correct some of my golden retriever’s reactivity issues with large dominant dogs. This had been particularly confusing to navigate without help as it only happened sporadically, but frequently enough that it was impacting our day to day. Rather than isolating him from dogs he would typically react to, I really wanted to fix the problem. Scott has been a miracle worker with Pretzel. He had Pretzel back at the dog park (where a lot of his issues began) by the 2nd session, using the e-collar for correcting, which Pretzel has handled very well. Scott patiently educates dog owners on how to read signals and when to not overcorrect so you can feel confident training on your own in between sessions. After 4 sessions with Scott, my dog’s reactivity has drastically decreased, and when he slips up, I know how to appropriately correct him. Sincerely recommend Scott and Chill Out Dog for your pups.Pamela I.Pamela I. ★★★★★ We cannot say enough good things about Chill Out Dog Training! Cameron was professional, knowledgeable and great with our pup. He truly got us back on track in just a few sessions and we have seen immediate results. We highly recommend him for anyone looking for help!Jenny H.Jenny H. ★★★★★ Chill Out Dog Training, and specifically Scott Ross, are exceptional dog trainers. Our dog was well behaved, but exhibited some less desirable behaviors such as impulse control around other dogs/humans (wanting to say “hi” to everyone and jump up on them), counter surfing, and pulling on the leash. Scott effectively — and quickly! — helped us to address all of these behaviors, and we have already seen drastic improvements in our dog in just a few weeks. For starters, he no longer counter surfs! If you’re on the fence, just do it! We highly recommend Scott and the team!Charlyn E.Charlyn E. ★★★★★ We absolutely loved working with Scott at Chill Out Dog training. Our rescue Weimaraner, Leo, was extremely reactive towards other dogs. We tried so many different training techniques and never saw results until we started working with Scott. I was skeptical of the reviews that would say “we saw results in the first session” but they were true! We truly saw results during our first session and not only did Leo build up his confidence but WE felt more confident taking Leo to busy parks/areas. Scott really took the time to explain the ecollar to us and set us up for long-term success by giving us consistent feedback. We are so grateful for Chill Out dog training and if you are struggling with behavioral issues, I’d definitely recommend reaching out to them for help!Megan D.Megan D. ★★★★★ We were desperate. Our puppy was out of control and taking over the house. My older dog was becoming reclusive in an attempt to avoid the over excited play of her younger sister. We were strongly considering rehoming the puppy, but not now, thanks to Scott and his expert training techniques.Friends and family have noted a significant difference on how she greets people at the door. My grandchildren aren't afraid to play with her. My neighbors have noted she is less reactive. I'm not so tired on walks because she isn't pulling on the leash. And most importantly, our older dog Lola is returning back to her old playful self.We still have work to do, but rehoming is no longer part of our daily conversations. Thanks Chill Out Dog Training!Patricia W.Patricia W. ★★★★★ I can not say enough great things about Chill Out + Cameron specifically. I signed up for the e collar package that includes the e-collar and 3 hour and a half sessions. I had a lot of hesitation about the e-collar because I didn’t want to hurt my pup or scare him as he’s a sensitive boy. My hesitations were very quickly diminished after testing it on myself and seeing how it was just essentially an annoyance to my pup. I am a HUGE fan and advocate for the e-collar now. For context, Zuni is an almost 1 year old mini golden doodle. Our main focus was working on recall and I saw significant improvements after our first session. After completing our 3 sessions, Zuni’s recall is near perfect and we can play comfortably in the park off-leash as well as do off-leash hiking. His overall obedience has improved significantly as well. Highly highly recommend Chill Out!!Joelle F.Joelle F. ★★★★★ CODT deserves every one of their 5 stars! Our new pit-mix rescue is a sweetheart but had too much enthusiasm, so walking her was a struggle and hiking/public places were out of the question. My partner & I just wanted to be able to walk her without changing direction at every dog or getting our arms yanked around at every bunny sighting. In our consultation call Cameron asked if we wanted to take her to dog parks and I truly thought that was out of the question for us. Well….by our third session she was minding her manners at a dog park! The 3-session e-collar package truly changed the way we can live our life with her. Now instead of harried walks in the alley avoiding all distractions, Nova can accompany us on hikes, park outings, and patio adventures. Thank you, Cameron!!!Charlotte N.Charlotte N. ★★★★★ Cameron helped Moose with his pulling and reactivity to other dogs. Moose is much calmer now.Natasha S.Natasha S. ★★★★★ We used Chill Out Dog Training this past summer and it was by far the best thing we could’ve done for our dog Finley. Finley struggled with leash reactivity towards dogs and with living in a very dog friendly apartment it was always a stressful situation trying to take her outside. We had two sessions with Scott and he completely changed the behavior and helped her build up her confidence around other dogs. Scott was so great to work with. He was such a great listener and provided us with the tools to work with Finley! I literally cannot recommend Chill Out Dog Training enough!!Hannah M.Hannah M. ★★★★★ After 20 sessions of group obedience trainings, our little man had made some progress, but still had some intense aggressive and reactive behaviors that stressed us out daily. After the first session with COTD, Scott was super knowledgeable, helpful, and we made so much progress. After the second session, we feel very confident taking our pup out in what used to be very stressful situations and getting back to what we enjoy doing outdoors.Ian C.Ian C. ★★★★★ Our experience with Chill Out Dog Training was excellent. We did two sessions with Cam for our dog Ruby and immediately noticed a huge difference. Cam is patient, kind, and talented with the pups! He taught us everything we need to know to achieve our training goals. Highly recommend.Deandra C.Deandra C. ★★★★★ I rescued an 8 month old puppy from a shelter, great dog, other than separation anxiety. The howling and the barking was just so much. After I tried all the YouTube videos and the desensitization nothing was really getting that progress I wanted/needed to see. After I turned to Cameron and asked some questions, he referred me to their e-collar-separation anxiety guide and within days I can now go to the store and my buddy is just hanging out.I would like to mention I was scared to use the e collar just because there's so many bad stigma's around it. However I use the lowest vibration setting on mine and it was enough to really aid training and now I don't have to offer many corrections if any.Thank you Chill Out!Aspen R.Aspen R. ★★★★★ Super effective. I worked with Cameron and he was super nice, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. While not a problem dog, my 16 month old Tibetan Mastiff has always been independent and slower to respond to commands. Even within one session my pup was significantly quicker to commands and much better behaved. I fully recommend their services for anyone trying to get better training. It has made life with my dog so much easier and fun.John Paul B.John Paul B. ★★★★★ Highly recommend Chill Out Dog Training. We worked with Cameron for our resource guarding dog and he was excellent. He came to our house, was patient with our dog and us as we learned about what’s best, and he was malleable with what needed to happen based on our dogs needs. He’s an excellent source of knowledge and came prepared with treats, beds, collars, leashes - all the things needed for successful sessions. Our dog is doing a lot better, and we now understand a bit more about his motivation and behaviors. Wouks recommend Cameron for pups with resource guarding!Christine L.Christine L. ★★★★★ Cameron is incredible. Since qualifying my opinion seems to be important, here ya go. I've paid approx $8k in board and train fees + at-home dog training for a few dogs I've had. Cameron came recommended by one of the outfits I've used. I have not been disappointed. My new 10-month old pup, Peaches, spent her first 9 months without a home and separation anxiety was her biggest issue. Within the first 90 minute session he had her heeling right beside me and got her to accept that the crate is a happy place.Within a week of using his techniques, peaches can now go in and stay in her crate for 1-2 hours without a problem. In the second session he worked on bed and recall. I'm confident that she'll be recalling by the end of the week and has already stopped jumping on people at the door.He has saved me a ton of time and a lot of money while delivering a too notch training experience.Joey H.Joey H. ★★★★★ My Dog Blu is a shelter puppy. From the shelter I learned he was beat up so badly that on one occasion his jaw was broken. For the 3years I've had him, he was ALWAYS scared of strangers, new things, loud sounds, and especially men. I took him to different trainers and, other than his fear, he is a very well behaved dog. However his fear turned into reactive aggression and he recently bit my neighbor. I was so upset because I would do anything for Blu and I didn't know how to help him. Cameron, within THREE sessions, had Blu to a point where he would politely approach strangers, he no longer has an issue with my neighbor or people we have over, and overall his reactivity is slowly improving. I can't thank Cameron enough. He gave me the tools to help my best friend live life to the fullest in a safe manner for everyone. Thank you!!!AbygirlAbygirl ★★★★★ We had a great experience with Chill Out Dog Training and would definitely recommend. We did four sessions with our dog over the course of a year and got to work with two different trainers – both were fantastic. They worked with us for our particular circumstances and were so helpful. Our dog definitely grew in her discipline and responsiveness, and we grew as owners in our ability to work with her, read her body language, and better utilize the e-collar.EricEric ★★★★★ I would highly recommend Chill Out Dog Training. I worked with Cameron and it is clear he is a master of this craft. I searched for help with dog training because my 8 month old lab puppy (Abe) entered the infamous "teenage" years and stopped listening. Up until contacting Chill Out, we'd attended half a dozen 4-12 week classes at the Humane Society and Petsmart. The focus of both was to bribe the dog with treats in exchange for good behavior. That only took us so far and often made Abe sick for a week until the next session.Upon meeting my dog Cameron was able to see Abe's gregarious nature and work with both of us to find a balance and cultivate better listening skills. In just three sessions Abe has significantly more impulse control and I have more confidence working with him. I so appreciate Cameron's support of my commitment to having a well-behaved dog. Cameron provided followups and notes after each lesson so we could continue to improve even outside of sessions, he was available via email for questions and help, AND he sent us home with the best dog cookies in Denver. Thank you for taking my concerns seriously and working with Abe and I!Kelsey D.Kelsey D. ★★★★★ Cameron is an incredible trainer - in just two sessions he transformed the behavior of our dog on walks, his ability to be off leash and gave us the tools to work on general reactivity that are already having a huge impact. We should have done this years ago! Highly recommend working with Cameron.Linnea R.Linnea R. ★★★★★ We had such great results working with Chill Out Dog Training. We were able to correct so many issues in just a few sessions. I can not recommend them enough.Ryan B.Ryan B. ★★★★★ We had a few training sessions with Chill Out Dog Training for our very, very, reactive rescue (before training she literally broke a window charging at a dog being walked on the sidewalk). After the first session there was progress and by the end of our few together we were able to take her on walks and to places like a brewery where there were other dogs around at a distance without issues. She even has a few dogs now that she's comfortable around enough to play with!We have a second dog that we had for years before the dog that got us to reach out and the sessions were helpful for him too!Because of this dog's reactivity we knew that classes were out of the question. It wouldn't be safe for anyone or any other dog involved so the fact that Chill Out Dog Training came to my house was fantastic. We got the basics down that we needed to be able to give our rescue a life outside of our property line. It was so worth it.We worked with Cameron and he was great at explaining why some things worked and others didn't. He was able to help us with both of our dogs and tailored the techniques to each dog. There wasn't pressure to do one method over the other which is somethings I was concerned about. He saw our hesitations with some of the recommendations and had us test it out on ourselves which gave us peace of mind that it would be ok.Sharadyn C.Sharadyn C. ★★★★★ Amazing work from Scott and Chill Out Dog Training! Just a few months ago we thought we might need to move one of our dogs out of the house for fighting/behavioral issues. As of today we are back on track towards a happy dog house with the whole family feeing reassured. Highly recommended!!David M.David M. ★★★★★ From the moment Cameron called me when he was outside the home, wanting to set everything up for a successful, positive meet/greet with Sophie and Max, I knew we did the right thing. Cameron set the vibe for all of us! I had my first walk with Sophie where I wasn’t constantly resisting her pulling. He gave us in-the-moment feedback in the home with obedience, resource guarding, etc. We learned that Max was more of an instigator than we thought. He left us with homework and online guides that we need to read. I’m confident that Sophie & Max will live their best lives with us in a calm and loving home…with boundaries!"H SH S ★★★★★ Scott came to our house to work with us and our new puppy Otis. Scott was knowledgeable, patient and easy to work with. He helped teach us how to better communicate with our dog and build a relationship with him. He offered realistic and implementable tips to help shape our dogs behavior. I’d recommend Chill Out Dog Training to anyone looking to train their dog.Anthony San L.Anthony San L. ★★★★★ If you have a reactive dog, these are the trainers for you! Over 3 sessions, Scott was able to help us make significant progress with our dog’s territorialness and reactivity. Unlike other places I saw, Chill Out dog training works with you in the environments that your dog actually reacts so the progress sticks. Before training, we couldn’t have our dog in the front yard and had stopped bringing her with us to breweries, now she thrives in those spaces. Can’t recommend them enough!!!Mikhala S.Mikhala S. ★★★★★ Scott showed up on time, having read the submitted notes about my dog (80 pound pitbull), with his tools and a friendly face. Our dog is mostly good but had some issues with manners and respecting me and my girlfriend which we got right down too. Even after 1 session we feel that Scott gave us the tools we needed. Great bang for your Buck also instead of one of those large dog schools. Will recommend to everyone!Adam F.Adam F. ★★★★★ Great progress in a very short period of time. I love the technique used by Scott.I recommend this service to anyone needing obedience training for their dogs.Lyn B.Lyn B. ★★★★★ I highly recommend Chill Out Dog Training! I was referred by a friend who had great success and I’m so glad I called. We had our first session today and I can’t believe how much my dog learned in such a short period of time. This training session exceeded my highest expectations. My 2-year-old dog is stubborn and prefers sniffing, zig-zagging, and marking over walking. We had him walking like a good boy and we actually got some exercise! I’m excited for us all to learn even more at our follow-up sessions.Kara HKara H ★★★★★ Just started working with Scott for our dog, Cora. Most relaxing day we’ve had with her in 3 years. I feel hope. I have spent time crying and thinking we couldn’t keep Cora because of her aggressive behavior towards people coming to our house. Now, I feel lighter and see the possibility for her to relax in our home with guests! The calm manner Scott modeled as he used the e-collar to correct her and then coached her for a more desirable behavior was valuable and enabled us to practice this the rest of the day. Looking forward to our next session and in the meantime we’ll keep practicing with Cora! Thanks Scott!Linda T.Linda T. ★★★★★ I had an unbelievable experience with Chill Out Dog Training! My dog Stella was having an extremely difficult time around other dogs and was very reactive even just passing by others. This is the 3rd trainer I’ve been to and it’s been almost a 2 year process. First, I sent my dog to a board and train for 2 weeks.. after that didn’t work, I tried 1:1 sessions with a pronged collar and different trainer. That didn’t work either, and I was back to the drawing board. my dogs behavior was taking a toll on me and was really impacting her quality of life and ability to socialize & go on adventures with me. I’m not sure who was more anxious, (Stella or me).. but it was horrible.If you’re researching trainers in Denver, honestly stop the search and book with this company. They have a 5 star rating for a reason. I personally worked with Scott, and his calm, patient, encouraging, and thoughtful approach was just what we needed. He gave clear instruction and took his time making sure I understood everything he was saying. I saw an immediate improvement, after the first session was even over! She was passing dogs with ease. She’s now much calmer & more confident…and so am I. Additionally, I never would’ve trusted her off leash in an open space previously because shes run off before and had zero recall. This has changed our lives, and we’ve gone for hikes on relatively crowded trails, farmers markets, the dog park, etc. This weekend, she was even able to go off leash and swim in the lake for a bit and came right back when I called her.I’m so thankful and relieved to have found CODT!!Lauren R.Lauren R. ★★★★★ Cameron is an absolute godsend! I have a Weimaraner rescue named Odin who is 90lbs of solid muscle and while he is the most perfectly house trained dog, his leash pulling was beyond aggressive - dragging me, literally on the ground making walks terrifying to both me and onlookers. After 1 session with Cameron, Odin is doing so much better. I highly recommend Chill Out Dog Training!SheenaSheena ★★★★★ Scott really knows what he’s doing when it comes to pups! He taught us so many easy tricks to help our little guy with his separation anxiety!Corinne D.Corinne D. ★★★★★ Please do yourself and your family a favor and start training with Scott. I wasted a lot of time, money, and effort with other trainers and Scott was able to get my dogs in order with 2 sessions. My dogs responded quickly and we are now able to have a lot more fun as a unit. Scott is a friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable person, which makes training pleasant and easy going.DavidDavid ★★★★★ We had the most amazing experience training with Cameron N. to work on introducing my 6 year old Shepherd to a new puppy who will be in the home often. Cameron is incredibly knowledgeable in all things dog, and we had a blast getting answers to any and all questions that came to mind. He thoroughly explained all the steps required of us and the dogs through the training process, leaving us with zero concern or hesitation by the end of our three sessions.During our first intro with the pup, my Shepherd was snarling, lunging, barking, and very aggressive. Thanks to Cameron we are now able to sit in the same space as a family with the dogs remaining calm and cooperative.I have already recommended this company (and specifically Cameron) to 3 people in my life, and will likely recommend to many more! Thanks Cameron!r sr s ★★★★★ I had a great experience with Scott. I needed help with controlling my dog's prey drive, pulling, overstimulation (getting way too excited about new situations/environments), and greeting behavior (jumping on people). Scott recommended using the e-collar with my dog because she was not responsive to other interventions like treats, prong collar, etc. I was apprehensive at first but Scott explained how and when to use it so that I could see meaningful and sustained behavior change. With consistency and follow through, the prey drive and pulling have improved immensely. The greeting behavior is on the road to improvement as well. Scott was very knowledgeable and broke things down so they were easy to understand. He was also very receptive to my feedback which was greatly appreciated. I definitely recommend CODT to anyone with a dog like mine. Thanks, Scott!Ali F.Ali F. ★★★★★ We adopted a Rottweiler and named him Ocho, he's a big knuckle head, always sweet with our infant child but has demonstrated pretty significant aggression towards other dogs. So we hired a dog trainer named Emily, she was steadfast in her approach which is entirely built around positive reinforcement and trying to distract the dog when he goes into fits of rage. With her training we saw almost no return on a substantial investment and reluctantly accepted that we had a problem with out a clear solution. One day Ocho opened the front door and attacked a neighbors dog as she was walking by -- it was horrifying. I thought for sure we'd have to put him down and hated to do it, I could see so much potential in this dog. In a final hail marry attempt I found Chill Out Dog Training on Google and gave them a call. I ended up speaking with Scott, the owner of the business. His voice was calm and reassuring, he suggested we give his method a try, but like a lot of folks I've had reservations about shock collars. After just one session we saw remarkable improvement and I learned they can be incredibly effective with the right training without hurting the animal. The results were astonishing -- I can't say enough good things about Scott and Chill Out Dog Training. If you have a pet that really needs help I suggest you give him a call. Here's a video of Ocho wearing the e collar watching dogs on the side of the fence and not loosing his mind! We have success!!!Ilan B.Ilan B. ★★★★★ Working with Scott was a game changer! Within one session, my pup no longer barked at everyone and everything we passed. With such an amazing complete turn around, we decided to continue working with Scott to help us hone in on some other minor obedience training. Again, he had things under control almost immediately! The one-on-one training sessions really provide quick and personalized results. Definitely worth every penny and would highly recommend Chill Out Dog Training and Scott!L B.L B. ★★★★★ I would highly recommend Chill Out Dog Training! If I could give them 6 stars, I definitely would!I recently rescued my dog Bella about 3 weeks ago. I found she has leash reactivity issues by growling and barking at other strangers and dogs. Going on walks made me so anxious, and it was embarrassing when Bella would growl or bark at passerby's.When I reached out to CODT, they got back with me right away and said they could definitely help. My session with Cameron went so much better than I expected! He started out explaining why she has leash reactivity issues, and what he would do to help mitigate it. He was patient, gentle, and walked me through everything. Our time spent with Cameron was extremely valuable, and within the first 10 minutes of training Bella, she already made significant progress.I couldn't thank CODT enough and Cameron for their help! I finally feel comfortable bringing my dog outside and to the park.Sydney R.Sydney R. ★★★★★ Scott was helpful, attentive and kind with his approach for dog training. By the end of a short walk, we went from 100 to 0 leash pulling. Great advice for crate training, obedience issues and recall protocol. Highly recommend. E-collar is nothing to be scared about.Elliott B.Elliott B. ★★★★★ Highly recommend Chill Out Dog Training! We have senior pups that were really good with certain commands, but struggled with things like leash aggression and barking at visitors. For years, I tried watching YouTube videos from different dog trainers, and just felt like nothing was working. I wish we had enlisted the help of a professional trainer years ago!After a single session, we learned how to help our pups self-manage their behavior and saw a dramatic improvement. Scott did an amazing job of actually explaining the WHY so we know how to handle different situations.We're moving from the area, so my only regret is not buying the 3-pack from the start. Do yourself, your neighbors and your dogs the favor and call Chill Out Dog Training today!Natasha Noel P.Natasha Noel P. ★★★★★ Chill out dog training and our trainer Cameron N has changed our lives. We have a 2yr old terrier mix named Bernie that has suffered from severe anxiety for as long as we've had her. After only one session with Cameron we saw a positive change. He gave us the tools and education we needed to give Bernie the life we always wanted for her. We are extremely grateful. We will always be using chill out and Cameron for all of our future dog training needs.Richard G.Richard G. ★★★★★ Scott and his team are the best! I was apprehensive about using an e-collar on our dog and they gave me several approaches we can take, as well as took the...Sam T.Sam T. ★★★★★ If you read no more than this first sentence, know that we HIGHLY recommend Scott and his team to train aggressive tendencies.

While every dog and dog owner is unique, there are some questions we receive here at Chill Out Dog Training that many people have.

our trainers

I spent nearly two years and tried 3 different trainers to help my reactive dog, Stella, but nothing really worked. It was affecting both our lives severely. Then I found Chill Out Dog Training and worked with Scott—his calm and clear instruction was a total game-changer! Just after the first session, Stella was noticeably more at ease around other dogs, and I felt more confident too! Before, I wouldn't have trusted Stella off-leash; she had run off and had zero recall. But now, we've comfortably ventured into crowded trails, farmers markets, and even a dog park! This past weekend, she even swam in a lake off-leash and came right back when called! If you're researching trainers in Denver, seriously, stop the search and book with Chill Out Dog Training! They've earned their 5-star rating, and I can't express how thankful and relieved I am for the huge, life-changing improvement they brought to our lives!

I would highly recommend Chill Out Dog Training! If I could give them 6 stars, I definitely would! I recently rescued my dog Bella about 3 weeks ago. I found she has leash reactivity issues by growling and barking at other strangers and dogs. Going on walks made me so anxious, and it was embarrassing when Bella would growl or bark at passer-bys. When I reached out to CODT, they got back with me right away and said they could definitely help. My session with Cameron went so much better than I expected! He started out explaining why she has leash reactivity issues, and what he would do to help mitigate it. He was patient, gentle, and walked me through everything. Our time spent with Cameron was extremely valuable, and within the first 10 minutes of training Bella, she already made significant progress. I couldn't thank CODT enough and Cameron for their help! I finally feel comfortable bringing my dog outside and to the park.

Cameron is an absolute godsend! I have a Weimaraner rescue named Odin who is 90lbs of solid muscle and while he is the most perfectly house trained dog, his leash pulling was beyond aggressive - dragging me, literally on the ground making walks terrifying to both me and onlookers. After 1 session with Cameron, Odin is doing so much better. I highly recommend Chill Out Dog Training!

We worked with Cameron at Chill Out Dog Training for our highly reactive rescue who broke a window charging at another dog pre-training. After just a few sessions, we can now take her to public places like breweries with other dogs nearby without issues. She even plays with some dogs now! Cameron also helped improve our second dog's behavior. His in-home training was ideal for our situation, making it possible for our rescue to have a life beyond our yard. He explained techniques clearly, tailored training to each dog, and gave us peace of mind by letting us test methods on ourselves. Highly worthwhile!

I had the pleasure of working with Cameron from Chill Out Dog Training. I was looking for a trainer for my 5 year old Border Collie Mix Lily who overall is a great dog but dealt with some anxiety in public situations, some territory issues, and a little aggressiveness. Cameron and Chill Out Dog where overall great to help with these issues. I met Cameron at the dog park, he immediately began working with Lily, and myself as well. I really enjoyed how descriptive he was in what he was doing and why he was doing it. I found that incredibly helpful for myself to take home and work on as well. By the end of the session Lily already showed signs of improvement and as the days have gone by she has continued to make strides with the expertise that Cameron passed along. If needed I will definitely schedule a follow up session. If you're looking for dog training, Chill Out Dog is a great choice.

Scott and Cam were super helpful when it came to training our dog! The main problems we were having included barking and lunging on walks and each problem was addressed during our session with them. They gave us a lot of information and even showed us how to correct certain problems that we didn't know how to correct in the past. I've already seen so much improvement in my dog's behavior and it's only been a couple of days. I highly recommend working with them for any dog training needs you have!
