Julie truly cares so much about us and our dog. She went above and beyond with helping our dog who lacks confidence and has issues with meeting new people. She taught us how to help him be comfortable in his space and how to introduce him to new people. Even after we brought our dog home, Julie checks in on him to see how he’s doing.

If you need obedience training and want actual results that are easy to carry on with after your sessions are over - Call Julie. Don't hesitate, you won't regret it. Julie is kind, curious, adaptable, and very honest. She is hands down the best person I've ever met. She will tell you exactly what you need to know about your dog's behaviors and will always set you and your fur baby up for success. When I started my work with Julie I was very nervous and not confident at all in my ability to handle my dog or to make him happy. Julie asked a bunch of questions to understand me and my dog, how we lived, our habits together, and the goals we wanted to reach. 6 weeks is a long time for a commitment but I do not regret a single second or a single penny spent.

Julie was amazing with our pup Walter Boone! She is so knowledgeable, helpful, and really listens to your concerns. He was a very anxious little dog and had several behaviors that we needed to redirect. His overall demeanor is so much more enjoyable now and we could’t be more pleased. He seems so much happier and of course we are too 🙂 Walter truly loves Miss Julie❤️ Thanks so much for all of your time, we really appreciate you!

Meet rogue. She came to us early on and boy was she a handful.. we were definitely in over our heads. To simply put it I am beyond grateful for Julie and what she has done for us and our pup. Julie swooped in and saved the day. We did the board and train program. And ill I can say is WOW. what she did for our pup in 1 month would’ve taken us months to do. (Place, stay, kennel, leash, public places, etc) She was very attentive to our needs. Once a week we did training with our pup and Julie. It taught us how to keep a good handle on our dog. She gave us all of the tools to succeed and set the perfect foundation for our dog. She kept us in the loop with pics and videos when we were away. The love and compassion Julie puts into her work definitely shows. Our dog has been home for a few months now and what a huge difference julie made. Julie still checks in with me and checks on how things are going. She puts her all into your animal and Family and whatever needs you may have. I’ll never be able to thank her enough for what she’s done for us. We can’t wait to continue training with her!

I had a really nice meeting with Julie at a dog park. She was immediately kind and warm. I felt like she really cared for animals and I am thankful. She has a heart of gold, she is really sweet. My dog Poppy got to meet her and she loved her. Poppy was able to do commands with Julie and it was really nice to see. Julie was able to tell me more about dogs and tips and tricks to do with my dog. I am very thankful to have met Julie. If you need help and guidance, you should consider talking to Julie. She is very kind and helpful.

Julie was amazing and really helped us get our puppy Dewey trained. Dewey is a loving puppy but definitely needed the training after a difficult time when we first got him. And more than anything, we needed the training for ourselves to really understand what he needed from us. Julie was attentive and adaptable in teaching us how to be firm and focused on reward training for a stronger relationship with Dewey. He is so much happier now and we love him so much, Julie is the best! Thank you for everything you've taught us. Training is forever!

As soon as Julie walked through the door, we felt we had known her forever and now consider her a friend. We adopted Heidi, a Havanese rescue, at 8 months. For the first 3 months, she wouldn't let us anywhere near her or touch her. Within 30 minutes, Julie had a leash on her and we were able to pick her up and pet her. Within a month, Heidi can sit, go down, recall, stay and much more. We have all learned so much with specific goals set out, handouts, reading material and recommendations for products. We can't wait for the next five weeks to train in the community.

Julie has a true passion for helping dogs and their owners. I can't imagine using another trainer going forward.

Such a great trainer, she truly cares to help both you and your dog. Willing to break it down to help both parties learn and adjust to new behaviors. Definitely would recommend.

Julie was so helpful providing clear instructions for establishing the best environment and schedule for our new puppy. The transition was so smooth due to these insights and tips. She had recommendations for training books, items to buy on Amazon, lists and charts to follow, and contacts for nutrition. Although too far for in person training with her, she provided so much help to our family adapting to life with a puppy. Thank you Julie!
  •   I have worked extensively with Julie with multiple dogs. The first, Jinx, was an older rescue dog we got for my elderly father-in-law. The dog was afraid of everything. She was also a runner and escaped every chance she got. Within a few sessions this dog had totally changed. She's bright, energetic and happy. And we can let her off leash and not worry about her bolting from us.

    However, more personal to me are my 4 rescue dogs. Over the summer I added a 4th dog, Tiffany, and that totally changed the dynamic of my household. After a few sessions with the group as a whole Tiffany spent the month of December boarded with Julie. This was the game changer. We honestly didn't know if Tiffany would make it past day 1 because she was so attached to me. After her daily sessions with Julie she was a new dog. She's confident to be alone, plays well with the other dogs and is the sweetest thing ever. I truly believe Julie made this happen for us and I am thrilled with the results.

    I highly recommend Julie to anyone looking for training for their dogs from potty training, walking loosely on leash, stay commands, come, fearfulness, you name it and she does it.

    You won't be disappointed!!! And your dogs will be so much happier after working with her.

  •   My dog, Harvey and I had been working with a trainer weekly, however we weren't getting the expertise Harvey and our family required. Harvey was starting to have guarding and reactivity issues, so we had to step-up the training.

    Julie at New Vistas was recommended by a friend, so we called her up for help. After discussing his issues, she provided a very thorough consultation and we opted to move forward with the month-long 'Board and Train' immersive.

    While we had to wait to get Harvey in, the wait was WELL WORTH IT! The training she provided for Harvey (and us each week) was invaluable. She spent many hours training him at New Vistas, and in various locations engaging with different people to work on his reactivity challenges. While training him, she also equipped us with techniques to better manage him.

    Julie's training style, professionalism and admiration of dogs is what really sets her apart. We trust her wholeheartedly with our dog, and couldn't recommend her training services more. Thank you Julie!!

  •   Julie has worked miracles with my crazy 11-month-old GSD. I was to the point of aggravation and major frustration. I was trying to work with Stella, and she would not respond to me at all and just did her own thing. Not knowing what to do I turned to Julie and it was the best thing I could have done. We boarded Stella for 30 days as I knew she would need every bit of it. Now I can say Stella is still a work in progress, but I am now able to take her on walks without her dragging me around, eat my dinner why she is in a place and not in my face and is just a whole new dog. If your looking for someone who cares and is willing to do whatever it takes to help you get to your end goal, then get on over to Julie and see what she can do for you. You won't regret it!

  •   When my wife and I found out we were pregnant with our first child we decided to hire a dog trainer to prep both our dogs for our daughter's arrival. After interviewing 2 other trainers, we decided on going with Julie and haven't regretted it since. Julie is a straight shooter and sets clear defined expectations from the get-go. With each lesson we had a clear goal and a structured path on how to get there. One thing I will say is that you get out of it what you put into it. Julie will give you all the tools that you need to apply yourself in order to get the best results. It's clear from your interactions with Julie that she truly cares and as an advocate for the look up dogs as well as their owners. I would highly recommend Julie to train your dogs no matter how young or old they are. When we started my dogs were three years old and 5 years old and the changes we saw were truly remarkable.

  •   I have done nose work classes with Julie in the past (pre second baby), and that's how are acquainted. I like her sharp humor and approach with the dogs.

    Unfortunately my free time is non existent so I don't do classes anymore. Good news is that my dogs can still visit Julie because she boards. I'm not going to leave my dogs just anywhere. One of my dogs is old, and just a little nervous in new places, so he comes to Rancho Mondo along with his tiny sidekick.

    They come home happy, well fed, and I have no concerns while I'm gone.

    **I should also mention that when I did classes, she welcomed my baby to come. He was an infant so he hung out in his stroller, but it was still really cool. I brought my 13 y/o to classes too and Julie was really encouraging and sweet towards her.

    If you care about your dog, can take a joke, as well as constructive feedback, call Julie at Rancho Mondo.

  •   My energetic part-husky mix, Frost, flunked out of the group class at the pet store. Doing private lessons with Julie Eskoff turned my dog around. She is still energetic, of course, but with much better manners. People in my cul-de-sac comment on how much better behaved Frost is now!

  •   I've worked with Julie for nearly a year. She has been fabulous. Lilo & I take Noseworks with her and are about to go to our very first trial. I am completely confident, because Julie has prepared us so well. I really appreciate that she tailors her instruction to the needs of each dog - no cookie cutter here!

  •   I first met Julie years ago while she was the go to trainer at a big box pet store, where I might add, she outshone others, and I knew it was just a matter of time before she spread her wings and shared her gifts on a more personal level.

    A quick synopsis of our days training with her: We put our challenged pittie, Pickles, through two levels of training courses with Julie. Pickles was not your average pittie. He was very LOW energy, got frightened when people stared him in the eye, and was afraid of concrete floors (wha?!!).

    Cut to training: slowly but surely, Pickles eventually became an excitable pup with no fear of the hard and shiny concrete floors he was forced to ice skate across. Oh yes, and he also learned how to sit, stay, relax (with only hand gestures) and "leave it" in the midst of it all. He is now an absolute joy.

    Most recently, we had a Christmas portrait photo op with Pickles and Julie, which she dubs, The "Red Couch" portraits. The photos came out fantastic and are a must do for anyone who is as obsessed with their pooch(es) as I am. She even donates a portion of the proceeds to a local Pittie rescue group.

    Summing it up-- Julie is God's gift to all things dog.

  •   I am a professional Dog Walker and I got a call from Julie Eskoff, owner of Rancho Mondo NW Canine Center asking for help sitting and walking seven of her dogs while she would be away on business in Houston. Out of the three Jack Russell's and four Pit Bulls, one dog in particular grabbed my attention and captivated me. Murphy is an 80lb Pit Bull who was rescued from a shelter...and had been with Julie for just 5 months. She turned him from a dog with no rules to an obedient big softie who now walks loose leash, sits to greet and knows how to heal. She even taught Pearl, another of her Pit Bulls, how to speak with an inside voice and an outside voice. Now how do you even start to do that? Ask Julie, she knows!

  •   I called Julie Eskoff because my new puppy everyday behavior was driving me nuts. As a professional who works from home, it was extra stress I sure didn't need. So, off to Rancho Mondo NW I took him for the Board & Train puppy program.

    From the very instant we arrived, Julie had my dog doing exactly what she wanted. Quite simply put, she's an expert at canine communication and training; she and her team are fully committed and passionate about dog training.

    The results were a well-trained puppy who enjoys the homework training we do together. Thanks to Julie, my dog is trained, the stress is gone, and my well-behaved puppy brings me lots of joy.
