“Victor has done incredible training with my skittish young Golden Chow rescue fur-child. In only a few sessions, remarkable changes. All staff I’ve met really enjoy their work and really care about your pet and you. The grounds are gorgeous–worth the trip from Culver City for weekly training. I’ve raised other dogs, had other trainers and can only say” do not stop, go to Topanga Pet Resort.”

“We’ve brought our GSD’s here for years – its the only place we bring them for both boarding as well as training. No better place around. Not even close.”

“Great place. Our very challenging (but charming) malinois had all sorts of fear aggression issues before we started boarding her here… she’s now much more confident and gets excited as soon as we turn onto Old Topanga!”

“I cannot say enough to praise Victor. He is very talented trainer. Gentle, kind very informative and clear. My dog is excited to see him each lesson and responds well to him and his methods. “

“We have worked with several of the trainers Victor, Francisco and Angus and they are all amazing with the dogs, they have helped us socialize our dogs with other people and dogs.”

“I love this place! It is so nice know that when I am out of town that my dog Clyde is well cared for. Clyde is HUGE and a lot to handle. They took him on and have helped him become much more manageable. Every time I leave him there I know that he is getting the best care. They also do dog training for a reasonable price. They love dogs as much as do!”
