Dog Training

We have a 4 year old dog with behavioral issues (aggression, possessiveness) and have worked with my many trainers over the years and never had a good experience. We were told there’s nothing that can be done, she’s too old now and we should have reprimanded her when she was a puppy etc. Matt is the first trainer that didn’t place blame on us or make us feel like our situation is hopeless. After just one session we saw a change in our pup- we were able to understand her behavior and actions much better, learn how to prevent situations from escalating, and what to do when there is a problem. He teaches, doesn’t judge. We are thrilled with the changes we are seeing and look forward to continuing to build a better home situation (especially as we are trying to make a change before we have children).

My husband + I call Matt the Dog Whisperer lol because of the complete transformation he has been able to facilitate with our dog Zhu. He truly is so knowledgeable about what he does, and teaches you in a way that you can digest and understand. We have a 1 yr old pitbull / hound mix who is absolutely our wild child. We had a lot of things we wanted to work on and after a few sessions, it's like we have a completely different dog. Matt taught us how to communicate with Zhu in a way that he responds and listen too. It has been a total game changer! Highly recommend Matt for any of your dog training needs!

Matt was patient with me and wonderful with my dog. He gave me excellent, concrete tools to implement immediately. The results were noticeable very quickly. Highly recommend Matt as a trainer.

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

    It is customizable based on the dog and the process.

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

    I do a face to face consultation with owner and puppy. This is the time to observe the pups behavior and lay out an accurate plan moving forward.

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

    I have been around dogs my entire life. I do not reprimand or throw fear into dogs when I train. It does not work! Positivity always wins!

Not what you’re looking for?

No problem: we have pros for every job.
