What Our Clients say

Rover Rehab Dog Training has been awesome for us and our dog. Dogs love him and relate to him very well. John’s methods of training are superb. He has a fine sense of understanding dogs. John trained us with our dog when our dog was a puppy advancing to obedience as he got older. We absolutely recommend John and Rover Rehab for training. It is the best training you and your dog can get anywhere.

Bonnie and Jim, owners of Obi

Before working with Rover Rehab, we didn’t want to even have people over at our house because Emmett was so naughty. John was so knowledgeable and specialized the training sessions to what Emmett needed to work on the most. I was amazed at how well Emmett started listening during his training sessions. We are now able to have guests over without worrying about how Emmett is going to behave. It is a night and day difference in behavior for us!

Samantha and Josh Scalissi, owners of Emmett

Rover Rehab doesn’t take a one-size-fits-all approach to dog training. They take the time to listen and observe before providing solutions to the issues. John’s knowledge, experience and genuine caring have helped tremendously.
