Colin West is the most exceptional individual with dogs I have ever met. We made a mistake and got a high energy dog that needs lots of exercise and chewed everything when he did not get exercise. Not to mention our dog is very strong and neither my daughter or I could manage him. We tried hiring a trainer, sent the dog to a three week highly recommended boarding training camp. All this without result. In just one day, Colin had the dog in check and after three days of walking our dog he anxiously awaits Colin’s arrival. He was a normal dog after just one week of Colins walks. Continue Reading

I am so grateful for Colin and his Pack! My 7 year old shephard/hound rescue was in such need of a healthy, balanced pack and a solid pack leader…and she found one in Colin’s Pack! My previous attempts with other dog walkers or doggie playdates always ended in disappointing reports of consistent fear aggression from my dog Macy. I had given up hope that she would ever be a normal dog that would socialize well with other dogs. She loves to run, but where could I take her? Not the dog park…not play dates…I worried about her future as she put on weight and lost her sense of zest at Continue Reading

Colin is the dog whisperer. He not only hikes the dogs, he trains them through the pack. Already after only 6 hikes, Bosco, my 9 year old Lab, is a different dog on Wednesday when Colin picks him up. He’ calmer and happier when I arrive home after work. Colin truly cares about his dogs and sends videos of the walks so you really see your money’s worth! You really get your money’s worth and more. If I could afford him every day I would!

As an overprotective dog owner, I searched high and low for someone who didn’t simply just offer dog walking services, but someone I could trust.. and in Colin I found more; he truly values (and what I believe to be the most important thing in my dog’s well-being), having a balanced relationship with his dogs. What also struck me about Colin- is that he is extremely polite and is open to addressing any concerns immediately and in the most professional manner! Our little man loves his walks and we love that we can trust someone to keep him active and challenged while we are at work. Sometimes Colin will email Continue Reading

I found Colin when I hurt my back and couldn’t walk my dog. My dog is super high energy and needs a good long walk every day. Colin came to meet her and took her for a run with his bike. My dog loved it! Next they started going on pack walks in the Santa Monica Mountains. I really enjoyed watching the videos of their time together. My dog’s behavior has changed dramatically since she is getting the exercise she needs. Colin is trustworthy, reliable and fun! I highly recommend him.

I have a beautiful big powerful Akita. Not just anyone could appreciate and understand an animal of such intensity but Colin does. Colin has a truly unusual ability to feel the spirit of a dog and kindly, gently, powerfully work with that animal to it’s benefit. Colin is a great asset to the happiness of a dog. Bruno’s weekly hikes with Colin have tempered his outlook on the world. Fantastic exercise and a great pack for company have enhanced Bruno’s life. Colin has actually affected our whole family. Colin and I took Bruno for a one hour walk. Kindly and gently Colin convinced me that I needed to work on Continue Reading

My standard poodle Adam loves Colin and so do I! Colin is reliable, responsible, and has a magic touch when it comes to dogs.  My dog can be very nervous and suspicious around someone strange but Colins’ warm and calming presence immediately put him (and me) at ease. Whenever I need someone to walk my “baby”, Colin is the first one I call. He gets back to me right away, shows up when he says he will and gives me feedback about their walk together.  I always feel secure and well taken care of, plus he is reasonably priced! Could I ask for anything more? I don’t think so!

(Taken from Yelp–with owner’s permission) According to Yelp, five stars means “as good as it gets” – that is exactly how I would describe Colin’s Pack. In fact, I would give him 10 stars if I could. I have an intense, high-energy German Shepherd/Husky mix, who can be nervous and reactive with other dogs. However, she does great with a strong pack leader and really loves socializing with other dogs – especially in a pack environment. When I realized that I needed help getting Bella all the exercise and socialization she needs, I felt anxious. I did HOURS of research and finally stumbled upon Colin’s Pack during an Internet search Continue Reading
