Introduction: My name is James Thomas and I have been working with animals since 2004. I have been a licensed veterinary technician since 2009 and made an oath, "I solemnly dedicate myself to aiding animals and society by providing excellent care and services for animals, by alleviating animal suffering, and promoting public health. I accept my obligations to practice my profession conscientiously and with sensitivity, adhering to the profession's Code of Ethics, and furthering my knowledge and competence through a commitment to lifelong learning." I consider myself a balanced trainer that enjoys to work with people and animal. I will always make sure you and your pets are happy and won't stop till that's achieved.

Our experience was amazing! We opted for a 2 week board and train. He changed our newly adopted dog from a trouble-making toddler who wouldn’t listen into a loving member of the family. We struggled with recall as he was a very willful dog and he returned immediately responsive to voice. He crate trained him for us as well. We communicated throughout the whole 2 weeks and he sent updates including photos. He was patient and supportive and I cannot recommend him enough!

Our Finn was a great dog with some listening issues. After his two weeks at Owana he is even more amazing! Took him on a little vacation and he easily adapted to “place” in n the new environment. I love that he was in a family environment at Owana.

We loved working with James so far! From 1 session we are seeing many improvements in behavior! Our pup was rescued at 8 months and had many behavioral issues. He still needs more training to get to be the amazing dog we know he’ll be, and we can’t wait to have james back for more help training! Totally worth the price! 1000% recommend!

Details: 6 - 12 months old • Medium (26 - 40 lbs) • Private lessons • General obedience training • Leash pulling • Barking • Crate training • At the pro’s location • My home, venue, etc.
