Introduction: Prepare to be amazed by our refreshing and intuitive approach to dog education and behavior training. We also believe in tailoring our methods to suit each individual dog, because just like humans, every pup is unique. Our dog training style is all about fun, respect, and sensitivity. We understand the importance of clear boundaries and appropriate expectations, but we also know that building a foundation of appreciation, love, and respect is essential for your furry friend to become the best version of themselves. Clients come to us with a wide range of challenges, and we're ready to tackle them head-on. Whether it's puppies or dogs adjusting to new homes, dogs struggling with impulse control or leash reactivity/aggression, or those facing more severe behavioral issues like aggression, fearfulness, anxiety, or health-related behavior problems, we've got you covered. We take a holistic approach to learning, considering all aspects of your dog's well-being. Our personalized programs are designed to address not only the behavioral challenges but also to nurture the overall health and happiness of your dog. We believe that a harmonious and personalized learning experience for both you and your furry companion is the key to success. So, get ready to embark on a journey where we'll guide you and your dog towards a stronger bond and a more fulfilling life. Together, we'll overcome obstacles, unlock your dog's potential, and create a harmonious and balanced environment. We train in your home and in places that matter to you and your dog. Remember, your dog's well-being and growth are our top priorities! The three most fundamental components of your dog are their biology, environment, and psychology. We look at each client through a full-spectrum lens. Nutrition, stress, health, genetics, learning differences and motivational preferences are all factors that can impact your dog’s behavior – and we look at them all, always.

My boyfriend and I recently had our signature (first) session with Ingo and the experience was amazing! Before the session, Ingo spent over 30 minutes with me on the phone going over what our current issues are, what our goals are, and how he structures his trainings. Ingo came in very prepared and started by sitting down with us outlining what the next 90 minutes would look like and setting clear expectations. We had a full 90 minutes of watching Ingo work with our dog and then hands on training where we learned how to handle him. Within one session, we've seen significant changes in our dog that have lasted even after Ingo left. We never felt any pressure to commit to a training plan but definitely knew we wanted to continue working with him. He was clear, respectful, and the best priced dog trainer in the Valley. After one session, Ingo provides access to his online learning portal, giving us great resources to continue training on our own in between sessions. You also have access to resources like his amazon store front, training videos, and Ingo himself who has already followed up with additional texts after our session. I'd recommend Ingo to any dog owners looking to improve their relationship with their dog(s)!

I am a first time dog owner of a 8 week old puppy and didnt know what to do after reaching out to another trainer who was no help. Ingo responded quickly and was out to my house in a few days. With running a home based business and a FT job, I needed strategies to help me build structure quickly. Our first visit I learned how to set up a "living structure" for my Benson, how to potty train him, create a routine that worked for my busy lifestyle. In a few short weeks my 10 week old puppy was predominantly pottying outside and used inside grass pads if I couldn't get off a zoom meeting, by 12 weeks we started commands and using Ingo's training my Benson picked up on them in a few days. Each session has helped me tremendously and built my confidence. Now at 18 weeks, we are cruising right along with each stage. I love how from the very beginning I was listened to, supported, educated, encouraged and have access to a wealth of knowledge that I can leverage every step if the way. I would highly recommend Exceptional Canines to anyone wanting exceptional dog training service!

Today was our intro visit AND day 1 of training with our 2 yo German Shepherd and we’re already seeing results! Ingo worked so well for us that he’s coming back next week. If you need someone to train your pup, please consider Exceptional Canines. Ingo’s commitment to dog owners was evident within the first 5 minutes. You will not be disappointed.

My family and I adopted a dog from a rescue, and we were struggling to house train her. So, we decided to hire Ingo, and I'm glad we did. Ingo gave us a detailed protocol to follow, and it worked like a charm. It didn't take much time for our little dog to catch on. Now, we give a command word, and she immediately does her business outside.

We’ve been having some little issues with our dog and have been searching for a trainer for some time now. Finally fell upon Exceptional Canines and scheduled a training service. He is very knowledgeable of the breed and his training and makes sure that the owner understands what’s going on. He takes the time to get to know both owner and dog to make sure that he is catering the service to the specific need of the dog. Highly recommend the service
