Amazing work in less than 2 hours with my puppy. Paul gave us the knowledge and skills on how to put a stop to some bad behaviors. Would recommend to anyone looking to get thier dog starting the right obedience track!

We couldn't be happier with the results of our dog’s training and the care given to her while she was in for training. She is doing great with her obedience on and off the field, we have complete control. I was also very impressed with Jeff’s Knowledge of training dogs; He truly has a gift and I would highly recommend him as a trainer.

I was having some behavior issues with my German Shepherd and wasn't sure who to turn to. We left him with Troy for a week (I was SO NERVOUS, I've never been away from my dog) and I was stunned at what a great dog we got back. Not only was his behavior much improved, but Troy gave us some grooming tips (he came back bathed and with nails clipped!!), but Troy worked with us for hours to show us how to get the behavior we were looking for. I'm very nervous about leaving my dog with ANYONE. I wouldn't hesitate to bring my dog to Troy again in a heartbeat. If you have a dog that has even serious behavior problems, believe me, you've found the master. Will never leave my dog with anyone else again besides TROY!

I love training humans to understand their dogs! It's the most rewarding work I know. Success in dog training requires a commitment from you to your dog and its education. I train you to train your dog. I am your coach. When you request a quote, I will ask you to call for an appointment to meet you and your dog. We'll meet for 90 minutes, and the cost is $165.00 ($55.00/half hour). During this meeting, we will discuss your dog's behavior, explore possible reasons for that behavior, and discuss our options.

From basic obedience to competition obedience, we offer it! We have trainings for agility, therapy dog, canine good citizen, and more! Dogue Spot - Fun People. Fun Dogs. Fun Spot!


I am a certified dog trainer, and I use only positive training methods. The clicker/reward is a great fun way to work with a dog! Being a good leader versus using dominance or pack leader is more productive and teachable. I also have a dog rescue and work with problems that rescues sometimes bring with them. I am a support system during any training process.

I am a dog behaviorist who can help you with unwanted behaviors and show you how to prevent future problems. My focus is mostly on behavioral work, not training. A trainer can show you how to teach your dog a set of commands or cues to achieve a specific behavior at any given time. Behavioral work is teaching you and your dog how to behave and treat one another on a daily basis. Training and behavioral work do overlap and are both essential in handling and owning dogs. Though I use training as a tool in behavioral work (and I am very knowledge in the area), it is not the focal point of my work. My goal is to help you get in touch with your dog, understand where the problem(s) may lay and how to change. I currently offer exclusive home or site visits at an affordable price, and am available for professional consult.
