Riley

We adopted our dog (Riley) from Carson shelter and after 1 week we found out he is so aggressive with people who came over to our place and actually nobody could come close to us!
 
One day at Petco store in Rancho PV a lady gave us Masumi contact info and told she is the one! And actually she was the one!!

Rookie

Rookie is a four years old, male, German Shepherd and Chow mix. I am Mami, Rookie’s fourth owner.
When he was a puppy, his first owner adopted him from a local shelter.
When he was three years old, his owner dumped him at the shelter.
 
He was then adopted by two other families, but they both returned him back to the shelter after only a few days.

Happy

Happy

“Happy” had multiple issues, that needed to be fixed.
He constantly barked at anything! He is also very possessive over toys, socks, treats, even over my boyfriend.
Happy would attack any dog that came near him. He would even pee on our bed!
 
A friend told me about a trainer named MASUMI, who helped my friend with her two years old Doberman. Masumi gave us the basics, and showed us the real way to discipline Happy.

Chocolate lab

Chocolate lab

I have a 10-month old chocolate lab who had a few issues.
My life was a little complicated until I found MASUMI. She made my life so much easier with the training, that my dog has had with her.
He used to pull and tug when he was on a leash. He also used to jump on people when he would greet them.
 
Now he is such an obedient dog. I can’t even recognize my own dog.

Maggie

Maggie

We took our 4 1/2 month old bulldog pup, Maggie, to Masumi’s group puppy class. She was not exhibiting any “problem” behavior yet except for the usual puppy excesses.
Masumi’s training was a good balance of assertiveness and common sense.
 
She is friendly, down to earth and clearly understands the dog mindset. She gave us advice specific to our breed (bulldog) and to our specific puppy.

Terrier mix

Terrier mix

I have a 4 year old terrier mix.
I always pick him up, because he doesn’t like to walk with a leash.
 
My dog is OVERWEIGHT, and I couldn’t make him walk.
As soon as Masumi puts the leash on him, he started to walk.

Lupita and Kona

We have two dogs, Lupita and Kona. They had behavioral problems.
We agreed with Masumi’s philosophy and knew that she was the one for our dogs. But the US is too far to take the dogs to meet her, because we live in Hong Kong. So we decided to do the training remotely by exchanging email and resolved to do it ourselves by following Masumi’s advice.

Liberty Belle, Ace Boy and Diamond Starr

I owe you many THANKS! Through your guidance and understanding I have learned more than I thought possible.
When you came to work with us, I was heartbroken. Due to the issues we were having I truly thought that I was going to have to find a new home for Liberty Belle.
I have had many trainers come and work with Liberty Belle, but you were the first to work WITH ME first.

We are enjoying Stella so much, and we are very grateful to your organization!
She is so sweet and easy to love, and seems to learn very fast.
Our session with Masumi made a big difference in Stella’s leash behavior. We look forward to seeing all of you when we return for more training.

When he was “Doogie” he chewed shoes, purses, leather furniture, just about anything within reach. He also pee’d and pooped everywhere, whenever he wanted. He was loving and adorable, but cost thousands in repairs for the first owner.

Noelle

I wanted to write you to let you know how thankful we are for you and your training.My husband, daughters and I really enjoy working with you.
 
When we brought our rescued 8 month old pit bull (mixed with a little boxer) to you we were overwhelmed. We had a feeling she could be a good dog and were willing to step up to the challenge. But after 2 weeks of working with her we were not sure we were capable of handling this “high energy” dog.
