“Nathan is dedicated, passionate, and caring, and each of those qualities is evident in his businesses caring for and training dogs through Nathan Woods Dog Trainer and Loose Pooch Dog Club. Nathan is highly recommended for the utmost care of your pet.”

-Matthew Berger

“Nathan is awesome with canines. I’ve seen him work with pups and mature dogs (sometimes two at a time) and have them happily minding their manners in as little as 15 minutes. Most importantly, he helps provide we humans insight and understanding to get the most from time together with our furry buddies!”

-Darin Sullivan

“Nathan is a true pet expert, and he and his team at Loose Pooch are knowledgeable, trustworthy, and very personable. I’ve been bringing my dog to Loose Pooch regularly since she was about six months old. I know she is well cared for, and that she will be happy and hopefully a bit tired from all the fun and playing! I highly recommend Nathan’s work at Loose Pooch and his expert training advice.”

-Amber Wallace

“Nathan Woods and Loose Pooch Dog Club are terrific. He is a professional of the highest order and Zuma the pug loves going to Loose Pooch for daycare. Nathan is knowledgeable, caring and kind. I’d recommend him and Loose Pooch to anyone in need of pet services.”

-Ashley Anderson

“Nathan Woods has been our dog trainer since 2008. He is a highly skilled, caring and passionate dog trainer. We were thoroughly impressed by the excellent job he did with our dogs; Lola and Panda (Great Dane), Ranger (Labrador Retriever). Our dogs now follow commands, they are happier, we are happier and our dogs LOVE Nathan.We highly recommend his dog training services.”

-Patricia Selbert

“Nathan is a gifted and dedicated dog trainer/care giver. He has trained both of my pharaoh hounds and even earned an obedience title on this high energy/stubborn breed. Nathan also handled both dogs in Conformation shows earning championship titles very quickly. The dogs love Nathan and we always feel secure and confident when they are in his care. I highly recommend Nathan and his company for any of your dog training and care needs.”

-Betsy Stivers

“Nathan’s training regimen made all the difference for our dog, Daisy, a 97-lb German shepherd mix rescue. When I first got her in December 2009, she overwhelmed me and I actually considered returning her to the SB Humane Society. Then, Nathan came to our house to meet her. Daisy and I followed Nathan’s eight-step process and it works wonderfully. Daisy and I routinely walk on State St., she is friendly with other dogs, she overcame her hyper-curiosity about every dog on the sidewalk, and gets along well with most dogs she encounters on her daily walks. She is now at the stage where she can almost go to the beach off-leash.”

-Karen Sketch

“Nathan was a great help to me. My beautiful champion show dog came back to me with serious Fear Aggression. She was like a predator in my home. She would attack my other dogs and killed one. Nathan worked diligently with her and my other dogs. We now have a lovely well adjusted dog. I never thought he could change her. I am so grateful to him.”

-Karen Reyes

“Nathan Woods was amazing with our chocolate labrador. Our labrador was adopted by us and had been abused. Nathan, in a short period of time, was able to get Karla to behave on a leash and off a leash. Not only were we a lot happier but so was Karla. We never thought we would get another dog but have added two more dogs to our household. We would never have done that without Nathan’s help with Karla.”

-Terri Bailey

“Nathan is Santa Barbara’s Dog Whisperer! I highly recommend his services. Nathan did a fantastic job training and socializing our puppy. Not only did he help her grow into a confident, well trained and responsive pet, but he did it with love and she fell in love with him in the process.”

-Fia Richmond

“I have hired Nathan as our dog trainer. He is terrific! Great knowledge and wonderful to work with. Good results.”

-Victoria F. Hines

“Nathan has been great, helping us train our adopted dog. He was so nice & definitely knows what he is doing. Our dog immediately listened & responded to him. He has been available by phone for assistance and provides great service, coming to our house and being patient as our 10 y/o daughter was to be the main trainer. We definitely recommend Nathan!!”

-Kathy Mintzer

“We have two King Charles Cavaliers that needed to be trained (one in particular) and Nathan’s program helped us become the Alpha Dogs.”

-Susan Caine

“I have known Nathan since he was thirteen years old. He has always had a tremendous passion for working with dogs. Nathan is a very caring individual and exhibits a ton of patience with all of the dogs he has trained and their owners.”
