We love Terroux training! We rescued a gorgeous Golden Retriever puppy from Golden Retriever Rescue of the Rockies, and they had put a packet of information from Terroux Training in our folder when we took our puppy home. I was reading it every day like it was the Bible. :) My husband and I have had dogs before, but as adults we both had never taken a new puppy home. It was so overwhelming, and the information in the packet was so helpful that it got me curious to Google Terroux training. I realized they were local trainers, and got our boy into the Puppy Basics class as soon as he was healthy enough to go. We are finished now and need to schedule him for their next level - which is the Basics classes. Tiffany is wonderful, we loved Charlene who led a lot of the classes. Our boy had so much fun! If you love puppies, you will also melt at the puppy class to see all the other cuties romping around. It's the most natural antidepressant in the world! Ha! I feel the value was tremendous for the price. Instructional videos and TONS of information packets to print at home - plus the socialization each Saturday. They answered a lot of my stressed out emails outside of the classroom as well. And most importantly, they eased my anxiety about doing the right thing with our puppy. If our dog has the nature for it, we are hoping to get him through the program to do Canine Good Citizen with them. We HIGHLY recommend Terroux training!

Honestly, it can feel a little weird at first, and they have their methods that may not feel comfortable to you. The videos can be a bit dry and/or repetitive as well. But when it comes right down to it, two things give them five stars without hesitation. Number 1, it just works. If you work with your dog, and know what your dog needs and why, your dog will learn. And these guys know all the secrets. Number 2, they really care. They want you to succeed. We had to miss a class because of our dog's spay surgery, and when we came back the next week we felt overwhelmed and unprepared. We asked to postpone the final class and for some advice. They gave us advice and a ton of flexibility to pick a different testing week further out, and a makeup for the final class again so we could make sure we were ready. Our dog did great, and we are so happy with her (most of the time - she is still a puppy). Even after the class was over, we emailed with another issue and Ted sent us a detailed list of steps we could follow to with through it. That's pretty cool.

Love Terroux Dog Training! They are patient and positive and so knowledgeable. We’ve owned dogs before and I worked at a vet clinic through college so I thought I knew a lot already but it was an awakening to learn that I was doing a lot things incorrectly and also nice to affirm that I was doing some things well. Ted explains the why to their training method often including the pov from the dog so a lot of things just makes sense. If you’re looking for a hip new fancy space then this place isn’t for you. Don’t get me wrong, their training space is roomy and friendly but it’s not designed to impress. It’s simple, clean, and not distracting for the dogs which is ideal. Terroux Dog Training was recommended to us by a good friend and we’ll be recommending them to other friends. There’s a reason they have been around for so long! ????Photo of our very proud 7 month old boy graduating basic obedience training. He was quite pleased with himself. ????????????

My goldendoodle is very smart. These trainers are teaching Me how to work with her. I feel as though each trainer is committed to our specific success...and it is working.

I have brought all of our dogs (4 so far, 5 soon) to Ted Terroux Dog Training for many years. We've been through Basic Obedience and Canine Good Citizen classes. I live in Elizabeth and do not hesitate to drive to Lakewood for every class. I have enjoyed great success, the fun and very informative classes, and training techniques that are incredibly effective and positive. I honestly would not go anywhere else. I find it sad that someone would post such a negative review with no facts to back it up. People in this type (or any type) of business should be supportive of each other and encouraging. Ted, Tiffany, and crew, you're the best in my book and are a class act. I hope people reading this will disregard the negative and concentrate on the positive. And I am not a paid spokesperson. ;-)

I have been bringing my dog here since he was a pup. We’e done basic obedience and their Canine Good Citizen classes. We are now a successful therapy team. Not sure why the bad reviews state that they are not accessible, they 100% have consistently replied to my questions for the past 7 years. Also, the other review that stated that his GF thought they were using outdated techniques? Um… every single one of their trainers go to some prestigious training school in Texas and have extensive training unlike the petsmart crew. I specifically chose this school because of their use of positive reinforcement, not treat based or fear based. The cherry on the cake is their refresher course throughout the life of the dog, for 10$ which is perfect to shake off our COVID habits. Thank you Ted Terroux Team

They did a great job explaining the things you need to do to succeed in training your dog. All the trainers were great, very helpful and answered all your questions.

This is a great puppy program! The trainers are very encouraging and supportive both during class and when I had multiple questions outside of class time! They are very clear that their support is their for the puppies lifetime, which is amazing!

I’d give more stars if possible. We had a rescue dog we were struggling with, I called Troudoux and he talked me through my issues, with kindness and gave me helpful practical advise.

Great experience with my puppy. Several trainers worked with our class, all of them seemed very knowledgeable. They clearly know and love dogs!

I recently completed Basic Obedience training with our 10-month-old Flat Coat Retriever pup Annie. Ted and his staff are outstanding and help correct any issues you might have training your dog. I trained other dogs with Ted and his mom Sally when I lived in the Denver Metro area. My wife and I now live in Salida, CO which is 120 miles from Denver. When we got our new pup, I knew I would train her with Ted. I would encourage anyone interested in dog training to contact Terroux Dog Training. The travel time for me was a small price to pay for the training I received.

This was a great opportunity for socialization for my puppy, who lives alone with me. They sessions were a great combination of free play time and structured training, with continual moments of socialization mixed in. The trainers were very observant of puppy and puppy/human interactions, and had constructive suggestions when needed. And my puppy HATED to leave! It was great!

Training your dog is such a great investment in your family and the relationship with your dog. I love the positive approach to training and the psychological insights. Probably could double as a parenting class. We're continuing on with basic obedience!

If you’re looking for an affordable but extensive training program for your dog - look no further. Our 6 month old rescue attended the online and in-person basic obedience course and after 7 weeks, she graduated today! She learned many useful commands for our daily life. Ted and his team are extremely knowledgeable in dog behavior and training techniques. Additionally, the classes were spaced out for covid protocols, everyone wore masks and I never felt unsafe. This meant our pup still got exposure to new people and new dogs which is very important as we are still socializing her. Thank you, Ted, Tiffany, Sara, & Rick!

The training classes here are fantastic. They teach you how to train your dog, but do so by exploring dog psychology and why dogs act the way they do.

Super legit. Established company. Ted has more credentials than most in Colorado. Do your research on local companies before entering your dog in their training programs.

Our dog, Rosie, just completed the basic obedience and puppy classes. Ted, and all the trainers are top-notch. All of them want you and your dog to succeed. They even offer extra classes you can drop in, if your dog needs extra help. And, at no charge! I highly recommend! Our puppy is still a work in progress, but she has greatly improved, and has her basic fundamentals. They also give you online tutorials that are really helpful.

Our Dachshund puppy Mikko did the puppy class and Basic Obedience. Thank to all the staff for their patience with our challenging little doxie! He learned so much !

Exactly what I was looking for! Only one hour and I am able to handle the dogs with the knowledge given. He is realistic and uses positive reinforcement. We are now doing the 7 week course!

The Terrouxs and their staff are wonderful to work with and offered individual attention to me and my dog in both puppy kindergarten and obedience class. Even years after, they take time to thoughtfully answer questions and difficulties I have with my dogs' behavior.

I was a student at Animal Behavioral College. Ted was my instructor. I enjoyed it so much I went and sat in different classes after I graduated. He puts everything into terms everyone can understand. He covers so much and is there to answer questions and even show you if you just can't get it. He's patient and he's just down to earth. I will always take my dogs through his course's. Everyone should attend at least one course he offers many. Try it I guarantee you won't be disappointed!!!

I first took my pup Molly to another training center and they insisted she needed private lessons because she was so anxious she wouldn’t be able to cope in group classes. After doing more research I found Ted Terroux. I really liked the training methods and my anxious dog settled right into the group class. She’s a high energy pup, smart but has a hard time focusing. Ted and the team taught me how to teach her and we just finished Basic Obedience and passed! We’ve already signed up for the Canine Good Citizen class and can’t wait to continue our training here!! I would also like to add Ted always makes sure that he is available to answer and questions. I love that the whole team is there to help you and your pup to succeed. I highly recommend Ted Terroux!!
