    Earl arrived on time and patiently worked with our puppy. He gave us lots of ideas for training and working toward the behavior we wanted. Plus he provided several training dvd’s for us to watch and he makes himself available if we need extra training or need to call with questions. We ended our session feeling confident about training our pup!

      Earl has been wonderful to work with. He is a man of great knowledge and understanding of dogs and how to train them. He works on training us, through providing us much information and through personal example. Then we work on training our Bella, our 8 month old puppy. Earl has worked with her (and us) twice in our home and has made sure we understand that he is there for us any time we need him for questions and personal training. I have full faith, that with Earl, we will achieve our goal of Bella becoming a therapy dog.

      About this pro

      I solve dog problems. I work with working, herding and fighting breeds and dogs with strong temperaments that most trainers fear. Dogs with biting issues are my specialty. Call me before you take some other trainers advice to put your dog to sleep because of a biting problem. When other trainers or veterinarians tell you your dog has a mental problem call me before you accept the diagnosis or put your dog on medication. I can help. If your trainer is not familiar with the concept of "Pack Structure", find one that is. All dogs need pack structure. You must learn and implement pack structure with any dog or you will always have behavior problems. Your dog may love you but you you need him to respect you as well. This is especially true of rescue dogs that have already learned many unwanted behaviors. Knowing how to build a relationship is essential. These are issues that a board and train situation can't help you with. Nor do you need multiple sessions with a trainer. You just need the right information. This stuff is easy when you know what you're doing and is better done on your own and on your own schedule. It's really about you learning to be consistent because dogs learn through repetition. This is where my programs excel and I'm also only a phone call or a text away if you're having a problem. For more info please visit my website. Be sure to click on the 'How it works' tab. Earl Newland The thing I like most about my job are the many wonderful dogs and people I get to meet. The variety is amazing and you would be surprised to see how many great dogs are rescue dogs. I see a lot of pure bred dogs of many types and the mix breeds I see are very interesting too. I offer free phone consultations for anyone with a rescue dog. I want to help rescue dogs integrate into the new family situation and help solve any behavior issues they bring with them to the new home. If I can take the stress out of your relationship with your dog, I'll sleep well knowing it's a forever home. I will to be available for coaching and support for the life of your dog. One of the most important and enjoyable services I provide is puppy training. I love helping people and their puppies get off to a good start with House breaking, Crate training and everything else that goes along with raising a puppy properly so it doesn't learn unwanted behaviors. With my comprehensive puppy program your puppy will be a well adjusted dog by the age of 1 year provided you begin my program early (age 2 to 4 months). Remember, the longer you wait the more unwanted behaviors are learned and the longer it takes to correct those unwanted behaviors. Earl Newland

        Q & A

        • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
          Every situation requires a thorough evaluation. I've been doing evaluations for over 35 years now. I typically charge a flat fee of $400 depending on what issues you have or service you need. I run every client through Basic Training to bring them up to date with modern training philosophies and techniques. (see 'How it Works' tab at my website). Then I customize each Rx or protocol to the individual needs of the client and the dog or puppy. Initial visit is a 2 hour evaluation in the clients home where I can ask questions, observe the dynamics of the relationships and recommend protocols to solve the problems you have. If it takes longer than 2 hours than it takes what it takes. I'm never in a hurry. I often recommend the most up to date videos available on the subjects to illustrate and educate. I also provide unlimited on sight coaching and support as well as phone consultations for my clients for the life of the dog. They know they can call me day or night ,24/7/365, with any problem. Many of my clients have been with me for over 20 years and multiple dogs. Earl Newland
        • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
          The first thing I recommend is to visit my website and click on the 'How it works' tab to see if the service I offer is right for you. There are additional reviews available at the 'Testimonials' tab. Earl
        • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
          I went to a Kansas State certified canine instructors school in 1984 and was certified by this school. It no longer exists. After that I went to seminars for many years to learn the latest information on dog training or overcoming problems in training. Now days it is much easier to keep up with the latest information because of the internet and social media. Some of the best dog training websites are loaded with free videos and the longer more comprehensive videos are great although they can get a bit pricey. But that is what you have to do. Invest in your ongoing education and never look back. It is important or you will be left behind as the world of dog training advances without you. Earl Newland
