A very positive experience with dc Doggo. Dominic came in and was very calm with Gracie and she took to him right away. I really liked his style of teaching my puppy. If you are looking for a good dog trainer this company is a great choice.

Great start right off with the leash walking for my Rottweiler, Bear Bear, and myself. Knowledgeable advice and homework for me to follow through on.. punctual, in tune with my dog and friendly demeanor from Dominick and his associate...I made a great choice in dog trainers and look forward to our next sessions... I would recommend to another...pleased new client, Christine Falter

I have been working with Dominick for about six weeks. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and my dog absolutely loves him! Dominck has taught me so much about my dog, his behaviors, and how to handle them. With his help I am feeling more confident in my ability to handle my dog and am seeing significant improvement! I highly recommend DCDoggo!

DC Doggo is a lifesaver. I have worked with many different dog walking/training companies and DC Doggo is the best. Very professional and knowledgeable. Dom has a way with animals for sure. He gets so excited when he sees any dog. That kind of genuine love is radiating off of him. That's the kind of energy I trust with my fur baby. I'm so thankful to have come across his company.

FAQs

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

    Each dog is different so prices can vary greatly. However, to give you a general idea, our packages range from $250-$2,199. If none of our premade packages are the right fit for you, we will create a custom package to cater to your needs.

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

    We always start with a consultation - this allows us to explain our methodology while getting a better understanding of your pet and your goals.

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

    I've been mentored by widely respected trainers, I've studied with CATCH Canine Academy, and I've worked with hundreds of dogs. Continuing education for our trainers is something we require.
