Working with Armando has been a wonderful experience. His care and concern for animals is palpable and he turned our dog Duchess into a completely new dog. She went from being an aggressive and territorial ball of fluff to being the sweetest little puppy in the world in just a few weeks. Originally, Duchess would bite us and always drew blood because of her sharp canines (she’s only 22 pounds soaking wet) and we couldn’t have guests over, couldn’t take her to places where dogs would be, we couldn’t hug in the house without setting her off, I couldn’t dance or bop my head to music… it was pretty exhausting. Now we can take her around other dogs and have people over and if there are any issues we have the tools to redirect her. We did the full PetSmart training and had a personal trainer before this and nothing worked for the aggression. We were close to giving the dog away even though she was a rescue to begin with. Now, I couldn’t be happier with our pup and no longer have to fear she’s going to attack someone or their puppy. Thanks, Armando!!!

Armando is literally a life saver! I got my first puppy and was having such a hard time training on my own and it was getting so bad i couldn’t even walk my dog for too long because he pulled and would reactive to everything and just not listen. Armando from the first day was so patient and even after just the first day i saw changes. Ive completed my dogs training and i couldn’t be happier with all the positive changes, all the tools, and education he’s given me. He always made sure I felt comfortable and confident after each lesson. My ollie walks, so much better, he handles distraction better, listens much more. I definitely recommend and will be looking forward to working with him in the future with the advanced classes for my pup! If i could give him more than 5 stars i would!

Details: 0 - 6 months old • Medium (26 - 40 lbs) • Private lessons • Puppy training • Leash pulling • Biting • Destructive behavior • Crate training • House training • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

Armando is truly a dog whisperer. After one session i did not think my doberman was the same dog. Armando did a great job training me and my dog.

FAQs

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

    Our prices are based on an initial assessment of your dog. Our training programs are tailored based on your goals as a customer and the initial assessment. All dogs are different and all clients also have different expectations.

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

    Our process start with a free phone consultation session where I am going to find out as much as I can about your dog, the environment where he lives and your goals as a dog owner. After that 1st phone consultation session I will offer you the options I believe will be the best for you and your dog.

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

    I am member of the International Association of Canine Professionals who has been trained by recognized Dog Trainers in the USA and Canada. My main mentor is Duke Ferguson, one of the most famous dog trainers in the world. I have been applying Duke's philosophy and training techniques with great success.
