Pete showed up as planned, and met my cutie Lula and was able to take her that day after she met the crew, which was great no need to wait.Feb 17, 2016Verified
Our session with Pete was an excellent sanity check for our training efforts with our rescue puppy Miles. Our dog didn't have any major behavioral issues, but needed some work on leash etiquette and recall. He focused on training us - i.e. taught us how to fish. :) I appreciated his common sense tips, detailed training manual, and product recommendations.Aug 1, 2017Verified
Pete came to our house for two hours of private instruction with our puppy. We've already seen terrific results.Mar 30, 2017Verified
Pete's training was "Training the Trainer". It was amazing! He's punctual, and very professional. The guidelines and notes that Pete provided was very helpful. He also demonstrated how to train. I agree with Pete that it is always better that the owner of the dog train so that the bonding is better. With just two hours of training, my dog has already picked up few commands. Thank you Pete!

Pete is extremely professional and knowledgeable about training dogs. Punctual and pleasant, he identified areas of improvement and taught us what we were doing wrong with our dogs. The effort will always come from within but with Pete's help you know exactly where to put the effort. Pete's rate was extremely competitive and he's not interested in selling extra classes that you may not need. He's genuinely interested in improving your life as well as your dog's life. I highly recommend him.Feb 28, 2017Verified
