    I can’t say enough about how much Sadie and I look forward to working with Steve each week. He is a master at his craft and it is very evident that he loves his work and his furry clients!!

    Sadie (a Springer) started her hunt training young and as a pup some sessions go better than others. Steve is incredibly patient and he is constantly evaluating her and determining the next move that will refine her skills and style.

    Hi Steve & Dogs of a Feather,
    Though not a dog owner, I often see the truck and dogs at a local coffee shop. The dogs are friendly and happy. The guys sit nearby and look like nice people. The truck with the company name, the whole look is really cool.
    Somehow the Dogs of a Feather have this genuine universally friendly presence. Very comforting dogs and people!

  3. Heather Jacobs says:

    Steve is an exceptional trainer, he is gentle but firm in his training techniques! Ryleigh responds so well for him and is responding great to all of her training.

    Steve was amazing with my lab Shasta. She hit a rough patch in her training. But, with Steves patience and persistence Shasta is an amazing hunting dog. Thanks a million times for all that you did for her as well as us

  5. Sterling says:

    Excellent trainer, got my black Shasta trained perfect for the upland bird I hunt, even with a few set backs she had Steve still had the patience an drive to get her to preform flawless for me. Thanks again Steve, definitely bringing another pup to you when the time comes. Maybe sooner then you think

  6. Jackie G. says:

    With Steve’s training and patients with my lab Shasta. She has come a long way. We had a few set backs early in her training where she went a little gun shy. But, with Steves constant reassurance to us as with Shasta she is now a 100% a hunting fool. I don’t know if we could have done it with out him. He took his time with her and I don’t think you can find a trainer so devoted to his work. He teachings stick with you and if you need a little more improvement he’s there to help you out. Thank you Steve for all that you have done for us as well as for Shasta.

    Steve did such a amazing job helping train our Lilly. Just after the first session I noticed a huge difference in her barking and leash pulling.

  8. Cindy G says:

    While I have not used this service for training, I did meet 4 of their dogs coming out of a restaurant one day. The dogs were not leased, in the back of a parked truck. While the dogs were happy to see me and the group I was with (they were some of the happiest dogs I’ve ever seen), they would not leave the back of their truck. It was so nice to come across well behaved dogs off leash.

  9. Joel Nevarez says:

    Steve has been nothing but GOOD to Cooper and I. Cooper is well on his way to being gun broke and a well trained bird dog. Thank you Steve for all you do

    Star has come a long ways in the last year that you have been working with her. Thank you so much.

  11. Jim Foster says:

    Steve, thanks for all the hard work with Lexi. She keeps getting better and better every week. We are both excited about the future session & Lexi always loves being around you and your girls. If anyone is looking to have any training, hunting or obedience, Steve is your guy. He’s great with all the dogs and their people!

  12. Melissa & Eric says:

    Steve is awesome with dogs. He is a dog whisperer! He trained our Aussie Lab mix and us as well. He gave us wonderful advice that we can use for the rest of our dogs lives. Steve is very patient, dedicated and has a great work ethic. We dreaded walking our dog because she would drag us and now we enjoy our walks. He made himself available in between training days whenever we had questions or problems and that helped make sure we were training correctly when we were on our own. I would highly recommend Steve to anyone.

  13. Amy says:

    Steve helped our Lab in the short time he saw her. She is better at listening and also doesn’t “walk me” anymore. His recommendation of the collar and the lead was spot on. It really does work and I’m glad I bought both for our dog. He knows what he’s doing and if I were not moving out of town soon I would have continued her training with him. Highly recommended…

  14. Dianna Jane Stetson says:

    Steve is a wonderful trainer, I would recommend him to anybody. He worked with my Australian Shepherd Aussie and my mini Australian Shepherd Bearitt. We saw amazing results after the first session. Thank you for all your help Steve.

  15. David Henry says:

    Steve’s a fellow Vet, an awesome guy, friend, and customer! My best regular customer. If I had dogs, I wouldn’t trust them with anyone but Steve! Keep up the great work buddy!

  16. Robert Campoy says:

    Steve, Great day training with you. Gunner received some valuable bird dog training. Look forward to future sessions. Small Munsterlanders Rock!

  17. Brian C says:

    Steve is an awesome trainer who has helped me a lot with my black lab. Just shortly after I began sessions with my dog his behavior, and obedience greatly improved. Steve is a straight forward honest guy with no gimmicks I can’t thank him enough for all the help he’s given me so far.

  18. Ellen Sison says:

    Steve, I’m so very happy to have meant you….. Louie has improved so much since we first meant. Not only are you a great trainer, you are a great person. For anyone out there looking for a trainer for your dogs, I highly recommend “Steve Reider”

  19. Linda Corbett Sharp says:

    Have known Steve since I was in the 6th grade. He was a fine, outstanding person then and still is today. His parents instilled good values in him. He is one of the fortunate people in life that gets to do something that he is passionate about and that is training dogs. This website gives you all the information you need. Thumbs up Steve, and best of luck to you always, Linda.

  20. Brian Coy I says:

    I’ve only recently begun training with Steve, but I have to say that what sets him apart from a lot of trainers is his patience. That goes for my dogs faults…and mine! Lastly, Steve is most certainly a master of his trade, a never-ending flow of knowledge and experience. -Brian & Reagan.

  21. Karin Sullivan says:

    We just recently started training with Steve. He is a wealth of knowledge! He is direct, kind and simple in his teaching, just what my pups and I need to start out right. I’m excited to see the results in our pups!

  22. Erik Immel says:

    Steve has trained my black lab Kona for about a year and half. And the results are fantastic. If I ever get another dog again I’ll definitely put the time in with Steve. Steve is the best dog trainer in the Bay Area. He also pretty good at training owners!

  23. Richard Ariza says:

    Steve, lots of fun training with you. Getting to watch your dogs while training ours has been a blast. You’re doing a great job with our puppy and we can’t wait to get him out in the field on his first hunt!!

  24. John says:

    I love getting to see Mickey transform into a bird dog, he’s come so far since day 1. It’s a lot of fun to work with your own dog and get to see some other well trained dogs in action!!

  25. Ron Braxton says:

    Steve helped train my beloved pitbull Smokey (RIP) and we are forever grateful. I highly recommend Steve as a friend and dog trainer. Thanks Steve…..keep up the good work!! Ron Fairfield Ca.
