Bruce was very professional and helpful in teaching us what we needed to do to socialize our dog with my parents dog properly. He has a great energy and really does understand dogs. The session he did with us was very informative and helped us have progress with the dogs the next time we got them together. We still have work to do, but feel confident we can continue with the training. Thanks Bruce!Feb 14, 2021Verified

Definitely will recommend Bruce with dig training services. He came into my house and took care of my dog issues. Thank you so much for working with myself and Blake 🐾Jan 26, 2021Verified

Bruce was easy to work with and didn’t try to sell me any crazy dog school packages. He was straight forward in the sense that my dog didn’t require much training at all. My main concern was how to properly introduce my dog to the cats and he walked me through all of that and what to watch for if there is ever any signs of aggression. I know what I need to do now. Thank you!Nov 15, 2020Verified

Bruce was very punctual, he showed up 10 minutes early and stayed a full 2 hours. He is a really nice guy and helped my family and I better understand my dogs needs. She has separation anxiety, constantly jumps on me, pulls on the leash, and isn’t getting along with my moms smaller dog. She’s normally very scared of new people but she didn’t bark at him once! He showed us many tools and tips on how to reintroduce the dogs, and how to help my dog with her anxiety. My family has a lot more confidence in getting my dog trained and I can’t be more grateful. He said he’d call in a week for an update, and if it’s not going well, he’d come back for a free visit. We are very pleased with his training tips (:Oct 4, 2020Verified

Bruce was great, very calm and collected, not bossy or accusational. Honestly just a good guy and a great dog trainer. Helped me realize the depth of Duke's behavior and how he can change with a bit of patience. Bruce really helped put me on a track to fixing the behavior instead of avoiding it. Would absolutely hire again and recommend to everyone.Jun 17, 2020Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I charge by the session and the purpose of my sessions is to address all the issues with their dogs and empower the dog owners to continue the training.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I believe the best teachers and trainers are the dog owners, so my goal is to guide them to working with their dogs successfully.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I learned when I was a teenager that I had a gift with working with dogs. I read every training book I could get and went to a dog training school which helped me form my own ideas in how to work with dogs.
