This was the first time that I've ever trained my own dog and also my first puppy. Dan is AMAZING!!! He's a great person, a great communicator, and a great teacher. He explains dog training in an easy to understand manner and instills a lot of confidence into both the humans and the dog. I could not imagine a better puppy and puppy owner trainer.

Hiring Dan was the best decision I could have made for my dog and I. It’s not magic (though it seemed like it in the beginning), you have to put in the time and effort. But Dan gives you the skills to work with your dog…to Communicate in a way that they understand so that they respond the way you want them to. He’s also really great about responding if you have questions outside of your training period. It isn’t cheap, but it’s an investment you won’t regret. I’d give him ten stars if I could!

Dan is THE BEST! Much patience and love was devoted to us and our Golden Retriever, Ginger. More than just training her, Dan ensured that we as owners understood the concepts involved. To this day, I still remember Dan's golden rule of the 4 things your dog can be distressed with - It saved me on several occasions!

Dan is a wonderful trainer. He is very patient and not only does he train your dog, he also teaches you on how to train your furbaby! I love the fact that he is super responsive, even when I have random questions anytime. Would totally recommend him! He also makes sure to organize pup socials which really help a dog with the socializing skills! It is worth the money to have your pup trained sooner than later ! :)

Could not be more pleased with how training is going. Never knew how smart my little Sam was until I had the best trainer to show me! I understand what and the why’s now more about understanding dog’s behavior and what drives them. I feel lucky to have chosen the best. Thank you.
