Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I am a Master Trainer, in Canine Behavior Modification. I am certified with the International Boarding & Pet Services Association. I have successfully completed over 60 dogs doing “in boarding training” I’m experienced training all breeds, all sizes, all ages and all sorts of different problems. Aggression with people, aggression with dogs, socialization, fear/anxiety, potty training, puppy training, and your 5 basic commands. Sit, Down, Come, Heel, Stay. I also do agility training, teaching how to swim, pulling on bikes, roller blades, skateboards or any dog pulling device. Also any small issues like walking on a leash, off leash training, proper house behaviors such as greeting guests, digging, getting into the trash, barking, getting on furniture, chewing, or any other unwanted behaviors. I can fix them all, but not by myself. I like to have the household to be a part of the change in your dog to better improve their progress. Often many of your dog’s problems may have to do with small changes in the household. The most important aspect of our program is alphamanship. Dogs by nature are den dwelling pack animals and instinctively seek hierarchy in their pack. We will make it possible to become the alpha in your dog’s life. It is very necessary that we fulfill the role as the alpha as quickly as we can, otherwise the dog will try to take the role simply out of their innate pack animal tendencies. In our program we will give you the necessary tools to be your dog’s alpha, to build a foundation to your dog, bettering the chances of a happier trained canine. My training theory is a combination of “Positive reinforcement” and “Avoidance conditioning”. Some trainers are the old school “pound and jerk” to where your dog is traumatized and obeys out of fear. And some schools are all positive, teaching that it is always wrong to ever correct your dog. Which will unfortunately leave very frustrated dog owners. My Training Theory will fall into the middle of the training spectrum, like anything in life, the balanced perspective is the most effective and fastest. The best choice will be to use positive, motivational methods. However, we will also be dealing with dogs that have years of established behaviors. Therefore, we may also combine positive reinforcement with a correction to change the dog’s behavior. We offer different types of programs, including in home visits with the dog and the family. I need to get an idea of the dog’s lifestyle to better improve any wanted or unwanted behaviors. We will build a foundation for your dog and set up a 1-6 session home visit plan giving your dog all the training and tools for you and your family to have the dog you never knew you could have.

Derreck is absolutely amazing! Super friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. I saw major improvements in my dog's behavior with food aggression and barking after only 2 sessions, which has changed our family dynamic for the better in so many ways! I would recommend Derreck's services to anyone looking for a trainer because you won't be disappointed!

I do not write reviews but in this case Derrick desreves every bit of praise possible. The minute he stepped in to my house he took command of our Pug Puppy. He showed us a real life and practical way of how to train our dog properly. He was professional, knowledgeable and passionate. It was obvious to me and my entire family he knew how to communicate. He was effective and a great trainer. We have been stressed with regards on how to deal with our puppy. I will be frank as we are first time dog owners and our puppy has been wearing us down. Within minutes of introducing our puppy to Derrick our dog did a 180 in terms of his behavior. To put it simply, he was a completley different dog. Derrick articulated to us how to use simple, clear and basic commands. He was very thorough and easy to undersatnd. He covered every single line item that we had on our list in terms of behaviors that we wanted to improve. He did an evaluation of our house and made great recommendations on how to move forward with our puppy's training. Derrick has such positive energy that it is infectious and his passion for his work is contagious. It was by far the best experience I have had in terms training and teaching. I am fortunate that we were able to have Derrick come to our house and help us. I feel blessed and thankful that we were able to have Derrick help our family.

Derreck is an amazing dog (human) trainer! :) We are new dog owners and what we gained from one session was incredible. Our puppy responded immediately and we (family of 5) have been able to incorporate our learnings and continue to work with our puppy. He’s already a much better pup!!! My only regret was not being able to have him come sooner (thanks Covid). I went with Derreck based on other reviews, you won’t be disappointed. Highly recommended. We already have our next session scheduled and will probably do more. It’s exciting seeing what could be of a very well behaved dog! Thanks Derreck!

Dog Training

Our French Bulldog was starting to act aggressive towards other dogs and we were in need of a dog trainer. We reached out to Derick and we are so happy we did. We’ve only had one session so far and it is crazy the difference once session has made. We are so happy that we booked another session and learning such helpful tools. Would recommend to anyone looking for the right dog trainer who knows what they are talking about and training. 100/10 recommend Bad Dog Solutions.
