David was a MIRACLE! What can I say other than this was the best decision ever. I was a bit hesitant at first because of the cost, and I really didn't want to send my baby away for 3 weeks but I'm glad I did. Before the training I couldn't go outside because I had no control whatsoever. It was embarrassing! Max would drag me down the street and if he saw a dog he would go crazy! In the house he was good but would listen when he wanted to. He would also steal food and run out the door at times. After 2 years my patience was gone and even though I didn't want to be away from him I knew I had to do something. During the training David was very responsive and always answered any questions I had. He would even answer me late at night which I appreciated very much. Now Max listens to me whenever I tell him something and our walks are enjoyable. I was even able to take him to the park off leash and play fetch with him, something I never imagined could be possible! I will definitely recommend David to everyone and will only use his services in the future. This was the greatest investment I've made for myself and Max! Thank you so much David for helping us.

My wife and I are first time owner of a puppy “Cosmo”. We are senior citizens who wanted to stop our puppy jumping, and wanted our puppy to learn other obedience instructions. We were nervous till we met David. He was God sent for us. His patience, love for dogs, knowledge and willingness to go the extra mile to ensure that all our objectives are met is very impressive. He is professional and knows his job very well. His love for training dogs is obvious. He took Cosmo and me to pet friendly stores, mall after three sessions and Cosmo was an angle on his best behavior. After the fifth session I could walk with Cosmo without leash ( something I could not imagine). Now, I have to continue practicing the commands with Cosmo so that he and I do not forget what we have learnt so far. We are glad and Blessed to have met David. He is punctual and exceeded our expectation. I will rehire him any time.. God Bless!!! Thomas

Details: 6 - 12 months old • Small (16 - 25 lbs) • Private lessons • General obedience training • My home, venue, etc.

So, what can I say but WOW!! Our Charlie Boy had been through a previous 30 day "boot camp" with another trainer, numerous and extensive sessions with two other trainers and the results had been ZERO improvement (in fact, he got worse) to date until we met David. Charlie spent two weeks at David's board and train facility and came home today with 80%-90% of his issue GONE. We were at the point where Charlie would instantly flip out and attack ME when we even tried to step out the front door with him and it was 10x worse once we got outside and he saw another dog. Today, he had a minor meltdown going out the front door, but was quickly and easily redirected and was able to focus and continue with our walk without any issues. We passed by a few dogs and he paid them ZERO attention, which was absolutely AMAZING. Before his time with David, I literally could not be within 50-60 yards of another dog without him going crazy and attacking me, since he couldn't get to the other dog. David did an absolutely incredible job in just two weeks and we will continue with what he taught us and how to handle Charlie. I honestly could not be happier with the job David did with Charlie. It's nothing short of a miracle and well worth the money. I honestly didn't think we'd ever be able to leave the house or be anywhere near another dog until today. THANK YOU DAVID!!!

I haven’t even started with David but ever since I paid for the downpayment, he’s been responsive and would answer any question I have while waiting for our first day of training. He was even able to accommodate my needs as a new puppy owner based on what training I want for my dog. I’m glad I chose him! 🥰
