Dog training type
OMG! I can’t say enough about David. His training of my dog and more importantly me was beyond anything I could have asked for! Best dog trainer I have ever worked with!!!Aug 5, 2019VerifiedA Best Friend Certified Professional Dog Training's reply
Sue! Thank you so much for your review. It was a pleasure to meet and work with your family. Please remember you can contact me at any time with questions or issues. Give Emmie, Ogun, and Amahle hugs for me. Hi Rob.
We had David over within the last 12 hours and we already have a different dog. Tonight was the best time we've had with her since rescuing her in May. She seems happier and less anxious. We are of course ecstatic and are looking forward to conitnuing her training. Our puppy finally feels like a part of the family! Thank you David!Oct 2, 2017Verified
David is very knowledgeable and is a phenomenal trainer (humans and dogs, alike!!). Our puppy, Sadie, was unruly and aggressive, and David taught our family how to make our puppy into a dog with manners. With what he taught us and some behavioral modifications, life will be much better for everyone! We are looking forward to a happier puppy, too!Apr 20, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I will come to your home to meet with you and anyone who directly handles your dog. We will share much information. During this time I will do an assessment and see how your dog lives with you. I will assess your relationship and interaction. If your dog is having issues we very likely will make some human changes. Together we will formulate a plan and a strategy to get your dog on the route to being your well-behaved companion. We will see your dog begin to learn very quickly. You will learn and practice a few very important techniques, many human behaviors, and how to communicate with your dog.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Please see abestfriend.org In addition to the information on my simple website my experience has been to work with tiny Yorkies and Chihuahuas to massive Rottweilers and Presa Canarios.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Someone once pointed out to me that dogs seemed to behave differently in my presence.
