Outstanding “coach” for me (& my 7 month old crazy mutt, Max). Nate came in the nick of time; I truly did not realize how miserable it had been working by myself with a new dog. The support, knowledge, and training I have gotten from this very talented man is undeniable. What two training sessions can do! See what Max says: Before Picture (I love digging up the yard and tossing around the trash) and the After Picture (Thank you for finding Nate)

I am SO happy that we chose Nate! When I contacted him, I was at my wits end with our 4mth old American Bully puppy. She was nipping-a lot, and was very aggressive. Her behavior was causing my younger children, to have bad experiences- which almost lead to us having to re-home her. Nate came in and saved the day! He gave us practical/realistic training, that only relied on our consistency. When I say we have a totally new dog- I mean it! He taught us how to confidently implement boundaries, and lead our household accordingly. Not to mention all of these things are done in the comfort of your own home (how convenient is that?). I highly recommend Nate for all your dog training needs. He’s professional, efficient, practical and kind. Thank you Nate for all of your help- Joi (and us) are so appreciative!

We are very happy with Nate's insights into how to understand our dog and get found his perspectives invaluable as we move forward with her training. This is the training we humans actually needed!

I'm a first time dog owner and have been working with Nate for help with my young Bernese Mountain Dog/Great Pyrenees puppy. When I first hired Nate, my puppy was a lot to manage and I didn't think I'd be capable of training her properly. As a larger dog breed, there were concerns around safety of others so training was a MAJOR priority. After even one session in person I noticed a tremendous difference in her behavior. I noticed I was actually enjoying having her as my puppy vs. before when I would dread having to figure out how to manage her behavior. After four sessions, my puppy is almost a different dog. She's more responsive to me, has stopped exhibiting bad behaviors and is a joy to go on a walk with. Every tip he's given me has worked with my dog. Non treat-based training has so many benefits and Nate is truly the expert. He's been able to answer any question I have around my dog and is always available if I need advice. He's extremely easy to engage with and works around your schedule and lifestyle. If you're considering a dog trainer I STRONGLY urge you to hire Nate even for a few sessions!! You'll notice the difference with your dog and develop skills as a dog owner that will last.
