Introduction: Hello, My name is Daniel. Dog training has become an extremely fun hobby of mine. It is a skill that every owner can improve on to better communicate with their companion. *What to expect* Each session we will learn a new skill such as leash pulling, excessive jumping, and more. The first 10-15 minutes will be me introducing and explaining a new skill. The rest of the session will be you practicing with your dog while I give you tips to help the dog better understand what you want him/her to do. This will help ensure your dog will remain trained for years to come. Next step would be to schedule an in person consultation. My average client schedules 4-6 sessions, we normally are able to cover all basic training. All pre-paid sessions are non-refundable. I look forward to helping you & your dog!

I'm so glad I called Daniel. Daniel gave us the tools to train our puppy. Monty is a 5-month-old Whoodle — a cross between the Soft-Coated Wheaten Terrier and Poodle. So he is one part stubborn and one part smart, and 100% not interested in doing anything we ask. We had our first session with Daniel yesterday. I could not believe it. In ten minutes he had Monty walking nicely by his side, turning with him and sitting when stopped. Daniel was not only teaching Monty, he was teaching us. After an hour, and all the questions I could think of we left the park with a brand new puppy. Not only was Monty listening to us, we now understood what we were doing incorrectly in terms of training. We now had the tools and training to shape our 'good boy' into a 'great boy'. Daniel came for a house visit today and we worked on introducing grooming tools, not jumping, and 'go-to bed'. Training Monty is no longer a chore. It's a bonding experience. We're no longer frustrated, and Monty is eager to please us. We don't speak dog, and Monty doesn't speak English. Daniel has taught us how to properly communicate with Monty. Call Daniel, you will not regret it.

Within 20 minutes of posting, Daniel responded. He listened to my needs and was open to assisting with my dog, explaining that he was also a trainer so potentially able to help with more than just walking. While I ended up not needing his services, I would try him in the future and recommend him to others.

Details: 1 dog • 2 - 10 years old • Extra large (70+ lbs) • 30 minutes (standard) • Prefer a private walk for my dog(s) alone • My home, venue, etc.

Daniel was very helpful in putting together a training plan for my pup to get along with 2 cats. We identified his triggers and worked on redirection and positive reinforcement. I had tried some formula of my own training before this but was not yielding any results. After one session, we could see some progress. I would highly recommend his services.
