My wife and I adopted a 1 yr old male boxer pup from a rescue shelter last May. Immediately after bringing him home we noticed he had a few serious and not so serious issues that needed fixing if he was going to stay with our family. He is a 75 pound very hyper boxer that also had not been properly socialized with dogs or humans. He would try to dominate most dogs he came into contact with and was very hesitant towards humans (some growling and his hair would stand up). We enlisted the help of Bryndon and this saved our dog. He was able to
This is Little Bruce and yes this is his glamor shot. I rescued him from a shelter and have had him for a year now. Bryndon was introduced to me from a friend as someone who could help me with some of Bruce's "little issues" and he eagerly offered to help. He admitted he was already very well behaved but would offer some specific help regarding management techniques and enhancement of what we already thought we knew. He called it "going back to basics". Not only is Bryndon a good trainer he is fun to be around and hilarious.
We had so much fun. I definitely recommend him.

We thank Bryndon so much for his help in transforming our one-and-a-half year old Italian Greyhound from an aggressive, insecure monster at times into a much calmer, well-adjusted companion. We enjoyed working with him and appreciate your coaching us on how to better handle our dog. Even after first trying to bite him, Bryndon stuck with it and till the end they ended up being friends and kissing.I would absolutely recommend you to anyone needing help with their dogs, and can assure them of your reliability while working with us.
Bryndon is an excellent and accommodating trainer...his training theory is sensible, and is good at explaining and implementing steps to achieve each goal set for both owner and dog. We have a French Bulldog named Spartacus and have been working with Bryndon since he was four months old. Spartacus is now 7 months old - and several people have commented on how well behaved and balanced he is...and are even more surprised when they find out he's still a puppy.

Bryndon Golya trained our Doberman Sophie for almost her entire short life. She is on his web site. Sophie was very high energy and lovable. She died of a virulent liver cancer at 18mo. Not only was Bryndon essential to our having a well trained dog to live with, when we faced losing her, Bryndon came to be with us and Sophie when we had to say good-bye. He not only has an amazing intuitive sense of each dog he meets, he allows himself to personally care about his clients and their pets. He strikes a balance between empathy, sensitivity and firmness. He always communicates to the dog who is the leader and who is the pet. He also knows that his real client is the owner who needs to carry out training in between sessions to make the most of what he has to offer. His gifts include
(Pronounced Gingy), is our baby girl we rescued from a shelter 4 months prior to training with Bryndon. She came home with us and seemed so grateful but was still easily frightened and had some anxiety issues as well as difficulty pulling on our walks. Bryndon came highly recommended from friends primarily because of his good character and personality. He offered to assist us as one of his first clients and helped immensely. Within 5 visits Dindi is walking without pulling, has much more confidence and has minimal
Lux the 90 lb pit bull
I was having trouble finding a trainer that was willing to work with Lux because he is a non-neutered American Pitbull.I was referred to Bryndon by my local pet store where Bryndon donates his time and he was willing to rehabilitate us both. After only 3 sessions, Lux has shown significant improvement in all of his dominant behaviors. With a few quick lessons and commands it was rather easy to get Lux back under my control, and a lot of fun

Thank you Bryndon for helping train our two Border Collie rescues. You have given us the ability to go forward and create dogs who are learning the skill of becoming well mannered and a pleasure to have around our home. Rescuing dogs is a good thing but is also a mixed bag, we have no good idea of how they were treated or mistreated in their previous life. With your in home training we now see the benefits in a good foundation of basic commands and skills.
You have given Nancy and I the skills to continue the training process and the ability to work with our dogs to make them better pets. Young Border Collies are bright high energy dogs that require a good deal of training to keep them on the right path without using a "heavy hand approach". We look forward to continuing the basic skills and techniques that you have taught us to use and take our dogs, Nike & Bandit, to the next level.
Max & Nancy, Fountain Valley
for your kindness while dealing with Harley. Of course I would rate your services with the highest rating possible and would recommend you to others without hesitation. Thank you. Having a pet is so much more enjoyable now that he is trained

first teach our dog all the obedience commands (sit, stay, lay down, proper leash walking and so on), which made a humongous difference in our dog. His gentle, yet leadership style of training allowed my dog to respect him and made him want to listen. More importantly, he turned our dog into a respectful and loving pet. He socialized him, even brought his own dog to training sessions to help my boxer learn how to play nicely. We did a ton of off leash training and now I can have my dog off leash in any environment. Also, we did sessions at the dog parks and he taught our dog how to play well with all dogs and be friendly with humans. It was not an overnight thing because nothing is when it comes to animals with bad habits. However, he completely changed our pet beyond what I thought was possible and now we have the perfect pet. I would never hire any other dog trainer than Bryndon!!Alec and Brittany, Huntington Beach
noise with all the distractions of the beach. So far so good. We have had ups and downs with some behavior since but our friends and family all agree the dogs are so much better behaved. We highly recommend Bryndon and OC Canine Coaching.(The Mcdonald family, Corona Del Mar, CA)
seeing Bryndon treat a 90lb pitbull like a 5lb chihuahua!No more jumping on guests, no more sneaking into the kitchen. Excitement levels are finally lowering and we're both in more of a calm state of mindbecause we both know where were supposed to be. Thanks to Bryndon, our household is a lot less chaotic!Craig M. Costa Mesa, CA
own. He taught me to use the clicker which changed our lives. We learned how to walk without pulling, sit and wait patiently, and also gave us tools to build both of our confidence level - mine and Lula's. Bryndon was a great coach to me as a new puppy owner. And a great trainer to Lula. The best thing that Bryndon gave us was one on one training which was customized to my needs not his. He patiently answered all my questions and coached me to be patient as well. I am forever grateful to Bryndon and would hire him again if I ever got another puppy!"
Bryndon was the trainer for our MaltiPoo puppy, Lola. Lola began her training at age 5 months. At that time she was not house broken, would not respond to her name, and would not follow any of our commands. Bryndon patiently trained us on how to train Lola. Today, Lola is house broken, sits and lies down on command, and leaves things alone when told. She also immediately returns to us upon hearing our clicker, so that we never have to call her repeatedly. Bryndon fulfilled all of our expectations, and now Lola behaves exactly as we
Maggie and Delilah
My roommate and I have had a one year old Labrador Shar-pei mix(Maggie) for about nine months, and recently adopted an eighteen month old boxer(Delilah). Maggie has food/toy aggression issues, and we hadn’t been able to feed them together or give them any treats or toys without them fighting. I had been uncomfortable even having them both out of their crates at the same time while I was home for fear of not being able to control them. Bryndon has begun working with them and we are now able to reward them
Bryndon's astute ability to determine the training needs of the dogs that he works with, results in positive changes in behavior. My dog Blondie was extremely stubborn on walks, but with only 1 hour of devoted one on one training, I saw marked improvement in my dog's walking that very same day. Bryndon's personable and friendly demeanor resonates in a positive training experience for both dog and owner.

Cooper and Riley
Our dog Madison had 10 lab puppies in July of 2011. We own our own business and wanted a very hands on experience. When the pups were 10 days old, we began bringing them with us to the office everyday. This worked so well, that we decided to continue bringing the two pups we kept to the office... this obviously required good manners (training). We were fortunate to meet Bryndon when they were 10 wks old and invited him over to meet the pups. We had our two, plus two that stayed a bit longer. Bryndon was able to design and

We found Bryndon through a neighbor after we had a bad experience with another trainer. We needed help with some behavior issues that were getting worse after we adopted our new boy Max. We went with the day training as we were going to be away on vacation and wanted out dogs to be better behaved when we got back. Bryndon's Initial session before we left had me in disbelief. Already the dogs were getting along with another pack of dogs with no barking, walking easier, and making less
"I totally believe in nothing is a coincidence in life. I met Bryndon at the perfect time in my life. I just got my very first puppy. I was so frustrated because I thought it would be easy since I had watched all of Cesar Milan's videos. Nope it wasn't! Bryndon taught me so many things in such a short amount of time that wasn't addressed on the "Dog Whisperer" show. He helped me to communicate with my Spanish water dog Lula in a way I knew I couldn't do on my
want.Bryndon was also easily accessible, flexible, and very responsive to our needs and our schedule. Although we have finished our routine training sessions, we will have no hesitation in calling Bryndon should a need arise. Mark and Dyanne Drucker, and Lola
Although I didn't think that I could ever handle Harley due to my limitations, he performed very well with your instruction. I was especially pleased that you tailored the training to my disability and was patient in working with me. Harley was the first dog I have owned and I had a lot to learn about handling him. I really appreciated the extra tips and time you gave on being a more confident, responsible dog owner.
I considered another trainer but was fearful that their approach was somewhat rougher. Thank you
both with treats and allow them to play with toys for short periods of time without incident. I feel much more comfortable alone with both dogs after only a few short training sessions. Bryndon is amazing with them and it’s easy to see that they trust him and are comfortable with him. They are quickly becoming much more responsive and easier to control, and we are extremely grateful. Libby Farley, Orange, CA
reading the needs and perspectives of each pet owner and what is needed in the relationship between a pet and their owner. At the time we lost Sophie he was there holding her and grieving with us. We are now beginning anew with Chelsea, Sophie's sister, given to us by the breeder. Bryndon will be with us all the way, guiding us and training Chelsea as we go forward.Sincerely,George and Judy Kent, CDM
execute a plan that addressed both the social and the group manners they would need to successfully pull this off. It also included our office team, as they needed to learn how to consistently react to the pups. We couldn't be more thrilled with the training we received for us and for the pups!

anxiety. We continue to follow the treatment plan and Bryndon still comes by to make sure we are on track with maintenance once in a while. It is funny but he seems to love our dog just as much as us. Jeff & Zeahna,Hollywood, CA
Both Andy and I are very happy with the results we have had with Max. He has showed very good response when things are in motion. He listens and walks well with the training collar, which has made walking with him much better. He is a good dog and has only improved with the sessions he had with you. We both agree your were a great trainer for him, and we are very pleased with the results. We know how much it has been worth to invest in the work to make him a more socialized and happy dog. We have worked with several other trainers in the past with our other dogs. But, the way you worked with him was far and above what we experienced in the past. We are very pleased, and are happy to give you a 5 out of 5 for performance. Thank you for all the great information you have shared with us on his proper food and quality of its contents. It has been a terrific experience for us all!!!
