Introduction: I have been working with dogs and their humans for 30 years. I essentially "teach dogs and train people". - Basic obedience, puppy kindergarten and dog "problems". - This is not rocket science...(but it 'is' another language) ...and that's where I come in! Because of my experience, I can deal with any and every thing you need help with, when it comes to your pooch. I have literally "seen it all"! - I help couples, individuals and families with kids, as well as the elderly. - I never met a dog I didn't love since about 1960, when I was 5.

I contacted Gregg @Dogs best friend about my dogs problem and he really listened and talked with me. He told me what I needed to get the job done! It was a really good feeling and our training day was scheduled. It was a good session and really helped me and my dog. It’s a work in progress..but Gregg is always there if I need him! Definitely would recommend!

Dog's Best Friend trainer, Gregg Flowers is professional...two minutes after introductions...he had both Jack Russells leashed and following his commands! He is an expert in training both dogs AND their owners. Mr. Flowers provided our household with expert advice on how to take back control of our dogs. Literally, after only one session....significant changes could be seen in our Jack Russells' behavior. Thank You, Gregg Flowers for sharing your expertise with us and showing love to our beloved "jackies."

Dog Training

I have a 2 1/2 year old German Shepherd. Despite working with trainers, following Fiesty Fido techniques and constant work with socializing, she continued to display leash aggression. After one session with Greg,she no longer exhibits this behavior. He truly understands how to help both your dog and you be aware of pack dynamics and leadership. I continue to be amazed at the difference in Athena and am grateful for the expertise that Greg brought to the session. 10 stars !

Gregg came to my home and immediately you could tell this man knows dogs and the way they think. He even took time to explain the training to my 6 and 4 year old grand children. He will give you his personal phone number which you can call at any time with any questions you might have after he leaves. My dog know loves to obey me when we take walks. He trains the owner as well as the dog. I would recommend Gregg in a heart beat

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    It's pretty straightforward.- I work by the hour. You only pay me for the exact amount of time I'm at your place, (and I tend to work pretty fast)...so it doesn't make sense to me, to charge dog owners an exorbitant "package" fee for my service,

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My first visit is almost always somewhere around two hours. Many times (depending on the situation of course) that's the only time a dog owner needs to see me. This is 'usually' the case with puppy kindergarten and dog behavioral problems. - Basic obedience is generally a series of visits an hour or less each, about a week apart, but starts with a two hour session as well. - If you are a good student, things will move fast, and you will get an amazing result from what I bring to your situation.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Although I do have a certification from Animal Behavior and Training Associates of Los Angeles California, that's not what makes me good at my job. - I have a gift. I love dogs and our relationships with dogs. And I understand them on a deeper level. As a natural born teacher and communicator, I have an ability to convey that information to humans in a way they will understand. The other thing that sets me apart, is 30 years of experience in dog behavior. At this point in my career, there's nothing I haven't dealt with many times. And sometimes because of the often vast differences in my clients, I have to be creative when it comes to effecting a solution that will really work for them.
