So far we have had one training with Evan.He has been incredibly helpful. We plan on working with our dog several weeks before Evan comes back to help with other issues.Mar 16, 2016Verified
Evan Weston is an extraordinary trainer. He is gentle and empathetic with animals and understands them in an uncanny way. I think he likes them better than he does people. ? Our dogs have responded to him as if he speaks their language -- which we clearly do not. We love our dogs but Evan has taught us how to be disciplined with them and to maintain our pack order so that ALL of us know who the alpha is. (Hint -- it's not the dogs!). Thank heavens for Evan -- we are loving the reduced chaos in our home. He has helped with a minor biting problem too -- should have asked him about that one long ago! Five stars!!Dec 24, 2015Verified
Our dog Baylor just returned from 5 days with Evan. Baylor responded so well to him and it was encouraging to see how trainable Baylor can be. Now we just need to use the training tools at home so Baylor responds to our commands as well as he did to Evan. I would highly recommend Evan for any dog training.Dec 6, 2015Verified
Evan has helped us to understand our dog better. He has modeled how to teach her to stay in her "place" when the doorbell rings and how to wait before running out the door or jumping up on a visitor. We are so grateful for the education we have gained through our sessions with Evan. He understands dogs so well (he is a "dog whisperer"), and has taught us during the training to be patient, consistent and firm. We fully recommend "Me and My Dog Training" and feel more confident and happy with our dog now that we better understand how to interact with her.Dec 4, 2015

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing varies by client and by the issues and goals. The number of visits to the client's home may vary and the number of days a dog may be boarded and trained at my home will vary accordingly.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I love having a telephone conversation with my new customer to ask them about their goals for their dog's future behavior. Obviously this leads to a conversation about the current issues and helps me think through the best approach for the training.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been training dogs for my own pleasure (and for the satisfaction the dogs have when they understand the rules) for over forty years. When I retired I decided to bring the expertise I had developed to help other owners. I have spent time with other professional trainers and even with those who train Police dogs to learn the best approaches to dog psychology.
