    I would give no bones if I could. They want your money up front and so, they took my money. Then changed the appointment time and won’t give me my money back. I consider this a SCAM. BEWARE!!!

    A Dream Come True

    My name is Rachel & I have a 6 year old son who suffers with autism. His doctor recommended a therapy dog and advised I call CBS. I did and and not only did Andy help me with purchasing the greatest dog in the world; but he was accessible almost all the time. There were times I’d call him at 10:30-11pm and he’d walk me through step by step of what needed to be done. My son is incredibly shy. And he might be the biggest WWE fan in the world! For those of you who may not know, it’s wrestling. His favorite is Roman Reigns! To my son , he’s larger than life. One day while training, who shows up for to say hi to my son? Yup! Roman Reigns. I was completely floored! I asked Andy how did you pull this off? He just smiled. Roman gave my son a hug; mind you, this child is the most timid kid around... but he couldn’t stop smiling! Ear to ear. Even days after. Roman took a few pictures pet our dog in training and was so incredibly wonderful to us. This company; they care! They are there for you. And I like be them! Thank you Awesome Andy!

    The Best

    We can’t speak highly enough about this company. Hey exceeded my expectations completely! Our two pit bulls were amazing when they were alone. But together; it was simply anarchy. To walk them anywhere close to another dog was impossible. After literally 3 hours, one on one with both my dogs individually and then together, Andy the owner had them walking side by side on the side walk at 3:15pm when all the kids get off the bus with their parents and family dogs waiting at the corner. Andy says he doesn’t have a magic dog wand... I’m not so sure he doesn’t though. He’s truly that good!

    Worth the wait

    I was advised by my vet at Petsmart that if I wanted the best it may require me waiting my turn in line. Well I was desperate and didn’t feel like I could. I went through a few other dog trainers for them to evaluate my situation with my dog’s anxiety. Well, after no success, I called CBS. It was worth every second! Andy and his staff didn’t leave me hanging at all. Not once! Hey continue to call and check on me from time to time; but this company is there for you every step of the way. I love them all and now me and my Rollie are finally on the same page. I had to wait 3 weeks to get in with them... but it’s worth the wait fir peace of mind! I ❤️ CBS!

    Truly unbelievable

    I’ve always had dogs in my home and not until 2 years ago was I faced with a dig I simply could not handle and felt I was in over my head with. I was completely against training. I’d never done it before and looked at it like going to talk to a counselor. I didn’t want to be told all that I thought I knew was wrong. With CBS, I wasn’t told what I was doing wrong; I was just shown different ways to get things under control. I was dealing with a dog who was abused and very aggressive. My trainer was Andy! On day one; my dog bit him-BAD- but Andy stayed calm. He handled it and within a half an hour; my dog was completely submissive to him. As if he could utter the words, “I’m sorry”. Andy can work miracles! He did with my dog; probably more so with me.

    Outnumbered... but not anymore

    We have 13 small dogs. Needless to say, we are outnumbered. But with the help of the CBS staff. We are in complete control of our pack and things are better than ever.

    Fabulous with "Dinky Dogs"!!

    I have 2 2-year-old yorkies that like to run the house and have no training. I was getting tired of them running the place and called CBS. I spoke with Andy who had us come to his facility for obedience. He told me that even "dinky dogs" are happier when they have even simple commands to obey. Boy was he right. My little pups now sit and wait for a treat and they do not bark in public anymore!!!!! WOW. Even when he first met them, he seems to have a way of communicating with dogs that they not only stare at him and pay attention, THEY LISTEN!!! He had my finicky little girl sitting for a treat in under 10 minutes!!!!!!!!! I was shocked. To watch Andy and see him work with dogs, you see the love, compassion and his commitment to dogs. Listen to him, be consistent and you will have the best dog in the world!! Thank you again Andy and all the people at Canine Behavior Specialists!!!!!!! WE ARE A HAPPY FAMILY!!

    Long Distance Client

    My husband and I have 8 mini dachshunds and had recently relocated to Denver from Tampa. Andy and Ashley knew our dogs but hadn't worked with them. After the move, the pack became overwhelming and I reached out to CBS to find a trainer in my area. Aside from giving me resources to find one, Andy also gave me tips on how to control my pack and become the pack leader. I assumed a trainer would need to be here to see the problems but Andy understands animal behavior so well, he was able to correct the behavior over the phone and teach me how to do it! I cannot be more impressed. I would LOVE to see what he can do in person!

    Protection client

    I truly was amazed at how Andy and his staff were able to help me through this process. About 3 years ago, there were several break in's in my neighborhood. One night my family and I were the victims of one. We were all okay, but needless to say we were all very shook up. Through a friend of mine in my bible study class at church. He recommended CBS for training. I told him, "I don't even have a dog, what do I need training for!" He told me to trust him, so I did. I met Andy and his staff walked me through what options I may have if I wanted to purchases a in home protection dog. Long story short, Andy and his staff walked my family and I through the dog buying process, got us the dog that was and is the best fit for our family and trained him to realize a threat and how to react to it. God bless CBS and what they have done for my home. We rest easy because we have the Lord watching over us and a four legged angel that he put in our lives.

    Thank you so much Andy & Ashley. May the Lord continue to bless you and the lives you both touch.

    Just what I needed

    Andy & the staff at CBS made training my 5 Yorkies so easy. It was just what both my husband and I needed. They met our needs and far surpassed our expectations.

    I've learned a lot through my time at CBS. Not just the basics. I know why my dog does the things he does and instead of getting frustrated, I use it as a training opportunity.
