We first heard about Positive Energy's training program while attending their weekend puppy socials (highly recommend!). During our initial consultation, we saw Marwa in action and were in awe at how responsive and attentive our pup was to …

Our family has nothing but positive things to say about Positive Energy! They have such amazing training techniques, and they also have formed incredible bonds with our dog! The positive change in our dogs behavior can only be attributed to the wonderful team over at PE. Not only do they take great care of our dog, but they have given us so much insight to help replicate her wonderful behavior at home! Can't thank you guys enough!

Great place to tire out our energetic puppy and get him socialized with people and other dogs. The staff really care about the health and safety of the dogs, and are very helpful in giving training advice and progress reports on our pup's behavior. They offer daycare, boarding, and weekend socials. I love that you can check up on the webcams on their website to see how your pup is doing, and I recommend checking out thire webcams to see if their training style is right for your dog.

Positive Energy Dog Training is the best place to go for your dog. They truly care about the animals and provide only the best. The trainers and handlers are all very helpful and friendly. My dog is a rescue who was very shy and anxious. By going to Positive Energy Dog Training, he has gotten much more confident and has helped us with behavioral corrections in the household. He achieved some of his biggest milestones under their care. I cannot recommend this establishment enough.

I am not here to hate or show hate but I want to share my experience because there's so many good reviews but I'm curious if it was this hard to get into the program. First off they take forever to reply to emails and concerns, I did have to reschedule the first time, they never answered any of my phone calls nor my voicemails, (I wanted to make sure that my $75 doesn't go to waste) I finally got a hold of them when I messaged them on Instagram and Was told that they did get back to me which was not true I would've been aware of that because I'm pretty consistent on checking my emails and voicemails. I finally got a consultation rescheduled and they were really nice in person but when I went to pick up my puppy you're supposed to call before you go inside, I did my first call got rejected, I called again but this time I stood in front of the window where she can see me she then made or pretended to make a phone because I just saw her rejecting my second phone call. I ignored it because I really wanted to work with them after my consultation I was expecting them to tell me about the packages she then told me she was going to CALL me the next day, The next day I received a email not a phone call, I had already told them that I wanted to know about the packages and the pricing why wouldn't they just called me so it would be a faster process I emailed them back asking them to call me so I can get my questions out the way I didn't get a reply in two days after I complained they said they would call that day.. still nothing. Definitely going somewhere else where they actually show they care. I'm not sure they didn't want to work with me because I'm younger and are probably more selective on who they choose to work with.

I sent my fur baby here for the Board and training program. I met with the owner Marwa who right off the bat was great! I felt such a good vibe from her (I had called quiet a few other places and just didn’t care for any of them) Her facility wasn’t that far from me either which was great. Her setup is awesome. A lot for the pups to do. I also love and appreciate the fact that she has cameras so your always able to see what kind of “trouble” your little one is getting into :). The couple of staff members I met were very friendly and helpful as well. I definitely would recommend this place whether it’s for boarding/ training or just need a doggy day care for the day/week. Thank you Marwa!

Positive Energy Dog Training is THE!!! facility to consider for your dog's training and boarding needs in the Bay Area. I had the amazing opportunity to take a look behind the scenes and was incredibly impressed to see every team member treat the animals with as much kindness and love as if they were their own. Every dog is continually looked after and cared for. The employees are all qualified to handle even the most difficult of situations which is something I truly care about when it comes to the safety of my own dogs. Though dogs can be unpredictable sometimes, I have a lot of faith in the team's ability to keep all pets healthy, happy, entertained, and most importantly SAFE.

Great place to take your puppy to get some much needed socialization! All outdoors and all puppies are checked for vaccinations. Much safer place than a dog park for young puppies.

We have loved bringing our young puppy to the socials at Positive Energy! We’re able to let him feel out the world around him and get to know new dogs, but the trainers watching and interrupting anything that is “too much” has really helped give us confidence in what we should be helping him with on walks and meeting new dogs. We can tell he won’t have any fear/aggression around new dogs when he gets older and it’s thanks to Positive Energy ????

This place has been the best thing for my dogs! All the trainers are great and the best part is my dogs love them. They have helped with the one that needed a bit of training. Brittany and Sam have been a big help for me and my 3 kids.

My (then) 2.5month old puppy started at PE Dog Training a couple weeks ago and he has TRANSFORMED! He’s getting the fun play with other puppies that he needs (+ I’m getting a little time back for meetings!) and he’s getting comfortable with leash walking and basic commands. Of course, we reinforce everything at home too - but PE is a godsend. All the trainers are great but Chewie, our (now) 3month old pup, LOVES Gina. And we love her too! She’s incredibly thorough, patient, and so helpful. Can’t wait to see Chewie’s progress over the next few months :)

I love Marwa's team! They are organized and clearly show love and care for your fur babies! We have felt welcomed and taken care of from the first day. Overall experience has been beyond what we had hoped for and my puppy is learning so much every session. Marwa is totally a professional and tunes in to what your doggie is thinking. If you have a puppy, I highly recommend the baby puppy preschool that Marwa generously includes a private training session (depending on which package you purchase) and weekend puppy socials!

Marwa and her team have helped me so much with my Frenchie, Bochy. My Bochy had the "I can hear you but I'm still going to ignore you" personality that is really common with the breed. I thought that I could train him myself but soon became defeated. I contacted Marwa and did a consultation last November, since then we have completed day training and private training (that she was kind to include). She taught me and Bochy the tools to obtain the obedience that I desired. Bochy is a changed pup!!! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A DOG WHISPER, SHE IS IT!!!!Thank you so much Marwa and the team, you truly are amazing :)

I’ve been working with Marwa and bringing my dog to day training for months now and she does amazing work! Between going to training and working at home, he’s gotten so good at basic commands and learning to get over his anxieties. The puppy socials they host are so fun and you learn even more training tips first hand! Definitely would recommend

I dropped my dog off for an evaluation for a possible board and train situation. My 5 month old puppy has developed a fear of people and noises. I have my own dog business and I'm reward based only with my dogs and It is EXTREMELY important to me that wherever I bring my dog has the same concept. I asked this question twice before leaving my puppy. I was assured that they were a positive reinforcement facility and I was given a few examples. What I witnessed on the live TV was anything but positive. The woman in the room consistently sprayed the same two dogs in the face at close range with a spray bottle. Although this isn't the worst form of correcting poor behavior ( literally I saw two puppies playing and it didn't appear as anything that deserved punishment) it isn't positive. I was told that puppies displaying poor behavior gets a 30 second time out which is how that is typically corrected in reward based scenarios. Removing the dog and then placing them back after a few seconds of decompressing. Why that didn't happen is beyond me. It's like she said what I wanted to hear, but side something completely different. Needless to say, I picked up my dog early and won't be going back. Don't say something thT you're not.

Marwa came to Los Angeles and guided me through understanding and training my dogs! I have never met a more passionate and loving dog trainer! She was so patient both with my dogs and with me! I absolutely loved the experience! She is very knowledgeable and you can tell she really loves what she does! 10/10 recommend Marwa to you for your dog training/sitting needs! Thanks Mar!

We adopted our puppy in late September 2020 when it was most difficult to socialize him not only because of the pandemic but also of the bad air quality due to the Northern CA fires. We missed to socialize our puppy during the crucial socialization period. Our puppy was fearful and anxious, and would snap at strangers who would try to pet him. Signing up our puppy with Positive Energy’s day training program was a very good decision, one of the important decisions my family made.  It was an investment to a good dog that our family can be happy and have a good relationship with. Our puppy has learned the important obedience skills, has been socialized with both dogs and people, and is now a confident dog. Via the private sessions, we (the owners) have learned how to continue the training at home. Also, Positive Energy’s puppy socials on weekends have helped our puppy to meet other dogs and people in a managed environment. Marwa and her staff are the best!  I appreciate all the trainers especially Marwa, Jenni, Giselle, and Britney.  We'll surely consider bringing our dog back in the future if he needs a refresh of his obedience skills. I definitely recommend Positive Energy Dog Training.

Marwa is honestly the best trainer we could have found for our rambunctious 5 month old German Shepard, Blizzard! She’s like a dog whisperer, it’s crazy ???? She uses all humane and positive training techniques to really create a language between you and your fur baby that you both understand. She had Blizzard for a 2 week board and train, and when we picked him up we saw a world of difference right away after just 2 weeks! She updated us frequently, sent pictures/videos often, and she is very quick to respond as well and work around your schedule. Although we missed our boy, we were never worried about him. He was in wonderful hands. He got to experience so much in 2 weeks and he even learned some manners ???? I highly recommend her to anyone who’s looking for an awesome trainer and someone who will love your fur baby almost as much as you do while they’re away from home ❤️

We just completed our first evaluation with Marwa. She is calm, professional and inquisitive about what we know about our dog (she’s a 5 year old rescue, recently adopted into our home) . We plan to work with Marwa over a longer period of time, to help our dog with her separation anxiety and general socialization, as she came from a rough life before. Marwa is very easy to get in touch with and we were able to book our first session very quickly, which we needed. She already left us with some good observations and tips to work on before we officially start working together. We look forward to working with her more intensively and will update on our dog’s progress in coming months.

Amazing place with incredible people! They are not only great trainers put clearly people who love dogs. Our 8 month old bundle of anxiety has been making massive progress and having a blast while doing so. He is super excited to go in the morning and comes back exhausted, plus we get to see him through the webcams throughout the day. We are so happy to have found this gem of a place where our boy can learn to be confident in himself and respect boundaries! Thank you for all the hardwork and going the extra mile!

Marwa has been great with my dog. She certainly speaks their language well! My dog has already seen improvements with a couple of training exercises and time spent with her and some other dogs has been great for him to interact outside the home and with other dogs.

My Shar Pei mix, Annie, had massive separation anxiety issues and since working with Marwa, I've seen MASSIVE improvement. Things aren't solved yet, but we've only had a few sessions. I also leave Annie with Marwa for day care training …

I have only had an evaluation with Marwa. So far she has been great. She got to know my pooch (Yoda). She asked about how he's been in my home. My little man is a little shy and fearful. Once we are start our sessions I will leave a better updated review. As of right now, I highly recommend her. She has a lot of experience and made me feel really comfortable asking questions. She didnt make me feel at all embarrassed when I talked about my dog biting someone. So far she's great!

Awesome training, it really is positive training she embodies it as a whole! Marwa is super nice and very supportive for people who never trained their dogs before! I brought my dog in and she’s a big moose a Great Pyrenees and she was like the dog whisperer or something and helped me with my dog. if I can do it so can you!

Marwa is a lifesaver! Ive seen her work with dogs that have a wide variety of negative behaviors, from food agression to separation anxiety, and in each case she has managed to target and correct the unwanted behavior without killing the pup's spirit. She really knows how to speak to a dog in his own language, which says a lot about her trustworthy nature. Not only is she your dog's best friend, but she will also brighten your life and help you learn to communicate with your pooch in a productive way. I have recommended Marwa more times than not, and she is always my go-to when someone has a question about training. There are not enough good things I can say! Thanks for all the help throughout the years, Mar! So glad you're moving forward on your own!

My dog, Dexter, started misbehaving after 5 years. He was tearing up my couches. He was messing with toilet paper. It started becoming hard to keep the house clean. He also started barking at my granddaughters and scaring them which he had never done before. I considered giving him away, but couldnt bring myself to part with him. Hes my baby. I heard about Marwa from a friend. I decided to give her a try. I would try anything at this point. She trained Dexter to behave and become the happy-go-lucky boy he had previously been. She sort of helped keep my little family whole. Thank you Marwa!
