Through referrals, training, and discussion, John helped me understand that Bear was a fearful type dog, NOT an aggressive or necessarily mean or even protective dog. He was protecting himself from humans he did not know...recently I moved from a 15-acre farm to a city neighborhood. Thanks to John Lawrence, Bear has been able to adjust and adapt to a privacy fenced in back yard and leash walks. John has people skills as well as outstanding training ability. His timing, honesty and sincere desire to help people with their dogs show in everything he does, from obedience classes, individual training sessions, and dog day care management. I would highly recommend him to any dog owner, especially those who think they have tried everything but nothing works. John is a true professional who can and will help.

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.

John at Rover Rehab was fantastic. I did a lot of research before I found Rover Rehab and I am glad we went with them for Emmett's training. Before working with Rover Rehab, we didn't want to even have people over at our house because Emmett was so naughty when visitors came over. The biggest issues we had were when we had guests over, which worked out perfectly because John came right to our house for the training. 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 and Josh and I even learned how to do the training ourselves along the way. John even trained Emmett to let us clip his nails, which was huge for us because you couldn't even get within 10ft. from him with the clippers before! 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 and I would suggest John at Rover Rehab to anyone!

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.
