We started with our puppy at 6 months and finished about 8 weeks later. Our goal was to have our Flat Coat Retriever behave on the street, in the park, on-leash, and especially off-leash. He is now almost 8 months old and weighs almost 80 lbs. Duane's method suited us perfectly and not only is the dog trained - so are we. We learned a tremendous amount about canine communication and can take him anywhere in full confidence that he will be well behaved. We wholeheartedly endorse Duane and his training - knowledgeable, patient, personable and always professional. Erik and Kate in VeniceJan 19, 2016Verified

Duane was amazing! We had him come to train our puppy at 11 weeks and he gave us advice that will last a lifetime. He is calm, considerate, and was able to give us, as dog owners, the tools to have an obedient dog. We highly recommend bringing in Duane for whatever training you are looking for.Oct 18, 2015Verified

Worked with our newest rescue dog, as well as our two other dogs. We thought we needed help with the new one to integrate her and begin training but realized right away - that all three needed help. He is great at explaining dog training in new ways that make great sense and suddenly seem so easy and obvious. He had all three dogs behaving on leash, and taught them all to lie down before he left. He even got our littlest who is terrified of everyone to calm down and take treats from him (NEVER happens with strangers). We have booked three more sessions.Sep 1, 2015Verified

Excellent trainer. Experienced, professional, friendly and so very helpful. Duane has taught my dog and I to improve our relationship dramatically.Jul 21, 2015Verified

Duane was amazing! I felt like he gave us a master’s class in animal psychology. He gave us the tools we need to have a happy, safe and responsive dog. I wish we had hired him when we first adopted our dog. He was terrific.Nov 4, 2018Verified
