Okami Canine helped our dog become such a better dog citizen. Gonz showed us how to connect with our over stimulated Rottweiler so that we could start working on his reactivity outdoors and anxiety indoors. He is now a calm, cool, and collected rottie. Thank you so much!
Lonna GLoki, Rottweiler
Gonz at Okami Canine is wonderful. He cares deeply about you being able to communicate with your pup. With his training and guidance I've been able to give my girl the confidence she needs to just "be". Thank you Gonz.

"My dog Cassie is a 90+ lbs Alaskan Malamute with a bit of a pulling issue and can be reactive towards other dogs... Gonz is calm and was able to redirect the dog's energy effectively..."

Thank you Okami Canine for taking in my 5 year old boy who never behaved on walks, he went from being overly distracted, hyper and disobedient to walking beside me under my control and lead. This is all thanks to Gonz's expertise, patience and suggestions based on my dogs behavior. I am so excited for our future sessions and I now have confident in my dog to behave cordially with other dogs and people on the street. We appreciate your help!

If you are lucky enough to have Gonz work with you and your dog, and if you follow what he shows you, you’ll develop an amazing relationship with your dog. Changed my life!

Other trainers told me because of my dog’s age, he would stay set in his ways (being very reactive to other dogs). Well Gonz proved them wrong!! He did an amazing job with my dog and I learned so much about helping my dog. Thank You!
Gonz is seriously the dog whisperer! He is so patient and kind with people too as he trains them on how to best keep the training up at home. We cannot recommend Okani Canine enough.
Mason DRomeo, Beagle rescue
Okami Canine is amazing! I used to get anxiety taking Bruno for walks because of how he reacted to dogs, now we can comfortably go most places without hesitating.
SallyBruno, Rhodesian Ridgeback
I highly recommend Okami Canine. I did 5 intense weeks of private training sessions for reactivity. I learned so much that helped my dog like how to recognize the subtle signals he gave when he was uncomfortable, and how to help him feel safe. Gonz was my fourth trainer but the ONLY one who showed me reliable results.
Gina SBear, Malamute
Gonz offers much more than training technique. He presents concepts and principles that explain the reason behind techniques and when to use them. It wasn’t just dog training, it was life training.
Sarah HRiley, Weimaraner
There aren’t many people that actually know the science behind animal behavior, and can also use it to truly rehab dogs. Gonz changed our dog in the first 20 minutes of our first session! A few sessions later and our extremely anxious dog was exploring parts of our neighbourhood she never saw before because she couldn’t walk more than 10 feet without shutting down. Now she always wants to keep going farther! Thank you Okami Canine!
Mary A.Penny, Korean rescue
Just finished my 2 hour training with Gonz and he was amazing. I feel like I have a new dog! Can't wait to practice everything I learned!

Gonz is one of the best trainers I know, I recommended him to help train any dog of any age. He was able to train our Shiba Inus. If anyone knows Shiba Inus, they will know these are the “untrainable” dogs but Gonz was able show us how wrong that is!
KariMochi & Yoshi, Shiba Inus
We rescued Mango last year at 2 years old. Her previous owner never potty trained her. She had extreme separation anxiety and impulse control issues. We were also worried that she was getting reactive on walks. We found Okami Canine on instagram and they changed our lives completely! We’ve been doing in-home training with Gonz for 2 weeks and Mango is a different dog! She loves her crate, her anxiety is almost completely gone, she has great impulse control and her walks are 98% percent to perfect!
We didn’t have any major issues with our dog Indy but wanted him to pay attention to us more and walk on leash better. I was impressed at how Gonz was able to explain the logic of how a dog's brain works and teaching us how to use the right approach for our dog instead of trying things that were too rigid. Our walks are great and Indy is always checking in with us now. Thanks Okami Canine.
