My dog was on his last strike in our county for biting people or he would have to be put down. I couldn't imagine having that happen knowing he is sweet at home with the entire family its just when we go out or when guests come over he lashes out. When Matt walked Jambo on leash at our private lesson I almost couldn't believe it was the same dog. He walks right next to us tail wagging high in the air without pulling on the leash, even when we see a dog or people Jambo will notice them and then ignore them and focus on us for his reward. He relaxes in the house and will bark but he doesn't just lash out at people anymore which is a HUGE accomplishment. Thank you Advanced Canine Training

Details: 10 years or older • Extra large (70+ lbs) • Board and train at a facility • Aggressive behavior modification • Biting • Barking • Destructive behavior • Crate training • My home, venue, etc. • At the pro’s location

I contacted the Advanced Canine trainers and within 30 minutes they had called me back took the time to fully explain the board and train program and everything included in the training. He answered all my questions and we even got Taco scheduled for training the next day! I would HIGHLY recommend anyone who wants a dog that listens and is actually happy to listen look no further this is the BEST training around.

Details: 1 - 2 years old • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • Board and train at a facility • General obedience training • Barking • Digging • Leash pulling • House training • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.

After having Carmel trained with advanced canine training its like we have a completely new dog. She actually listens to us and is calm in the house. With Matts help my husband and I finally feel like we can have guests over and we dont have to hide Carmel in the other room. I am beyond happy with the results. If you are on the fence about dog training I cant recommend Matt enough.

We were at our wits end training our new Lab puppy. None of the others we had owned were as stubborn as Gibbs. One night we had enough. I sent a message to Matt and he responded almost immediately. He called and we discussed the problems we were having with our dog. Matt picked him up the next day. Many updates and two weeks later our dog is back. New and improved behavior, more relaxed and following our commands. I highly recommend Matt if your having issues. He is a caring individual who loves dogs and enjoys training them. Thank you, Matt

We adopted Oreo at 9 months old and she started off fine but she started having issues around strangers (especially kids). We have gone to a few trainers and they seemed to make things worse and she started acting even more fearful. We did not want to give up on her so we thought we would try one more dog trainer. We have seen a huge change in Oreo after working with Matt. This was well worth the investment.

Details: 1 - 2 years old • Medium (26 - 40 lbs) • Board and train at a facility • General obedience training • Leash pulling • House training • My home, venue, etc.

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

    I have been through the Tarheel Canine Masters training program spending over half a year with the school learning under the best police K9 trainers in the country. Tk9 is also home to the sport PSA where I learned under the executive director of PSA who has titled multiple PSA 3 dogs when there is less than 30 in the world. The director of decoys (bite work trainer) & K9 swat officer, and multiple national level decoys (the best bite work trainers in the usa). The hands on training of dozens of police K-9s and PSA, the hardest yet most popular bite suit sport in America has allowed me to advance my training immensely to provide the best pet obedience training for you! I have been through the Tom Rose School spending 6 months assisting with the training of over 20 dogs a month for obedience board & train as well as learning under Tom Rose who had the highest scoring dog in IGO/IGP 5 years and represented The German Shepherd Dog Club of America at the world championship. During my time here I learned the TOP training methods for animal behavior and how to train WORLD CLASS obedience.
