Dog Trainer, James Stokes of Midas Touch Dog Obedience School is top notch. Personable and experienced Dog Trainer. His love for dogs and desire for dog owners to have good relationship with their animals is apparent. I took James' Leadership course with my Dingo, Red Heeler, and we are happy with the results. We have made progress. As always, its up to the dog owner to do the 'homework'. We have a ways to go, but James gave us a wonderful foundation. I highly recommend James Stoke's Dog Training.

Midas Touch Dog Obedience training was just that....Midas Touch! My two dogs were crazy and wild because I had no control. Upon our very first visit, James had them listening and not pulling on the leash, which was one of the worst problems. Now we all can enjoy a NICE walk in our neighborhood! Best money I've spent.

James is an absolutely excellent dog trainer! We brought our dog Hank to him for a 5 week leadership training and even by the end of the first visit we already could tell an immense change in our dogs behavior. James is extremely knowledgeable about all canines, and provides an easy to follow and step wise process to training that is guaranteed to be successful. Each week we learned new skills for Hank to gain back our control and confidence as pet owners. Hank is a completely new dog after completing his training. I was amazed at how fast he transformed with the feedback and skills James bestowed upon us. We worked with Hank every day outside of our weekly training sessions, and watched him flourish and become so much happier. I could tell we gained back his respect. We as pet owners have gotten back our piece of mind, which i cannot express into words how valuable that is. James' training program is absolutely worth every penny, and I would say he is the best price on the market after doing our research. I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing training of any level for their dog. James lives for his work, and it shows in his professionalism and work ethic. We are very pleased!

Dog Training

We hired James April 11, 2020 to train our 40 lb mixed breed dog Huckleberry. Huck was starting to show aggression toward the neighbors and when the neighbors came up to the fence he would charge the fence and growl. The last straw was when Huck actually bit our neighbors hand. He did not break skin or draw blood but that is not acceptable. We have 4 dogs, the youngest one being Huckleberry. We have no issues with aggression with the others and the neighbors love them! When I contacted James and told him our story he determined that Huck’s issue was that there wasn’t a dominate figure in the house so Huck thought he had to take that role even though he was uncomfortable with it. So we had to learn how to take back that role. My husband was not on board with hiring a trainer and spending the money and I stressed to James that I needed to see improvement day one. Within 5 minutes of our first session Huck knew heal and just like that my husband was sold. Throughout our 5 week sessions Huck learned heal, sit, stay and lay down. Huck trusted us to take that role and was now confident on walks and more laid back at home. We couldn’t be happier with his progress and we have even started teaching our other dogs these same things. We would both recommend basic training with James because we have a much happier and well behaved dog. Thank you James!
