  6. “I definitely would recommend Kurt to anyone who wants a competent, trust-worthy person to care for their beloved dogs” -Jonny S., Los Angeles

  7. “Kurt is the absolute best! My dog has been part of the canine conservatory pack for a few years now and Kurt has always been super helpful, responsive, and gone above and beyond in every way possible. Not to mention reasonably priced (honestly for what he does, I feel like I'm getting the deal of a lifetime). My dog is SO tired when I get home after he's been with Kurt all day! I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a great play group or training sessions.” -K C., Los Angeles

  8. “Canine Conservatory is amazing! Kurt, the owner of the company, organizes meet ups where fellow dog lovers and owners can go on social hikes of all challenge levels, all over LA! My dogs are always so exhausted after the hikes, but more importantly, my dogs and I both learn something each and every visit with Kurt! I met him at Silverlake Dog Park a couple years ago, and many, many pups were literally sitting at his feet, listening to every word he would utter. His force-free dog training is DEFINITELY the way to go to insure your furbaby gets the training in the most productive and ethical way. Kurt also has a nice open area at home where he can house multiple dogs while owners are away - much better than a doggie hotel, as your pup will be guaranteed frequent trips to the dog park and constant socializing.” -Jordon C., Los Angeles

  13. “Kurt was by far the most knowledgable and helpful trainer I have found and now use. He is extremely knowledgable and conducts classes in real life settings which is a great approach since dog behavior is more natural in typical settings. It provides learning in real time situations vs the controlled setting of a typical indoor class. He helps with take away skills - how to continue the training outside of the class, always With totally positive reinforcement techniques.” -Ruth B., Los Angeles

Kurt takes my dogs regardless the hour of day, which is really convenient for me cos sometimes I have midnight flights, and I can be with my dogs before I leave for the airport. My boys are always happy and excited to see Kurt and his gang and they always come home super tired.” -Gloria T., Studio City
