Specific behaviors to address

Responds in about 2 hours

Introduction: If you have a dog, you probably also have ideas about how you and your dog can or should relate. From companionship to protection, dogs can basically do it all, but not without some help. In fact, the biggest threat to the bond between you and your dog is their behavior – the one thing you may not know how to address on your own. At Ancillary K9, we believe you can have the relationship you want with the dog you love. In fact, we’re in the business of making that happen. Our training programs are goal-specific, and are based on scientific, evidence-based research. We’ll work with you and your dog to solve the problems that matter most to you: obedience, behavioral issues, protection training, and even aggressive dog rehabilitation. If you’ve tried other programs or trainers in the past, only to be disappointed with the results, we know how frustrating that can be. Whether you’re focused on competition, personal protection, or just enhancing the bond between you and your K9 friend, our no-nonsense approach – backed by our Lifetime Support Guarantee – will allow you to be successful. Training is a vital part of the relationship you have with your dog. Let’s make it stronger together.

Within the first 2 sessions working with Dion, not only is my dog considerable more well behaved, but I am also learning about the philosophy behind successful training. I look forward to each session and the new skills my dog as well as myself learn.

Haven’t started our training yet but we are very excited to work with Dion. Have spoken with him multiple times and am very confident he will be able to get our dogs trained and teach us what we need to know. Very professional and accommodating. Has answered all questions and given tips for our puppy.

Dion is excellent and very professional. He understands how dogs operate and relates it to you in a very unique way. I recently have gotten a German Shepherd puppy and I have an 8 year old rescue who has been very timid and fearful most of her life. She is now really coming out of her shell and my German Shepherd puppy has been much more manageable. I am able to walk both dogs with ease and we are looking forward to moving my German Shepherd max into protection work. We are only about halfway through Package, but I am really enjoying working the techniques and training principles Dion has showed us. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to getting training for their dog wether it's specialized or just basic obedience and have already steered many co-workers and friends to his website and shown the success Ive had with my two dogs.

Two years ago I rescued Gilbert, a truly remarkable but quirky and energetic dog. My best friend thinks he was struck by lightning as a puppy, only partly in jest. I think I did a great job raising him, but Dion has been a revelation. He's given me such an amazing set of tools to help Gilbert and me and our roommates all live together more happily. In part this was Dion correcting mistakes I didn't realize I was making, like using a harness despite Gilbert pulling all the time, but more than that Dion helped me understand how Gilbert thinks. I remember thinking, confused, how can it be that a stranger understands my dog better than me? It's a testament to Dion that he does. He also understands me as a dog owner, and has been empathetic and accommodating of who I am and what I want from owning a dog. I cannot recommend Dion enough. If all you want it to correct minor inconvenient behavior, he's your trainer. If you want to get your dog off leash on trails, he's your trainer. And, though I don't want to take Gilbert to dog shows or through agility exercises, I believe if you do Dion is also your trainer. For your sake and your dog's sake, spend an hour with him. You'll look back and wonder why you spent so long not properly training your dog.

Our experience with Dion was great! He does not pull any punches, gets right to work with you and your dog and definitely lets you know what to expect and what you need to do to achieve your goals. Dion is very knowledgeable and passes that information on to you. You need to be ready to work with him and you will definitely see the results. It has been the best experience for us and we have seen a tremendous difference in Jager! But you have to be committed to the journey, it doesn’t end with the training sessions. It’s s lifelong commitment to your dog! Thank you Dion!
