I have a new puppy and I knew it was a little early to start really training him but I wanted to make sure that I was doing everything right and that I was teaching him and not discouraging him. Paul really helped put my mind at ease with just one phone call and one session. He taught me how to speak to my dog and correct my dog without saying no. I am hoping to continue training with Paul once Benny comes of age!

You've heard the phrase "actions speak louder than words". The fact that we are sending our 3rd dog to the dog professor should tell you what an amazing job Paul does. We could not be more pleased with the results. He is deeply knowledgable and very passionate about dogs. I wouldn't have a dog that hadn't been put through his obedience training. It's a night and day difference pre and post training. He's also true to the life time guarantee as we have called on Paul numerous times when new issues surfaced like our Boykin marking his territory when we brought in our new golden retriever pup. He counseled us on how to correct the issue. It was also beneficial to have his advice on the timing and breeder selection for our new puppy. He knew the personalities and temperament of our other dogs. Stella has made a wonderful addition to our family and just began her obedience training with Paul at 8 months old. We can't wait to have her back home. Toward the end of her training, her housemate Brody will join her so Paul can work with both at the same time before returning back home. Paul's training is worth every dollar! Trained dogs make happy dogs and even happier homes and families!!

I rescued a 90llb lab mix, Ringo. I believe he is 1-2 years old. Ringo had ZERO leash training when I got him. To my knowledge, he had never been walked on a leash at all. The first few weeks, I had to walk him with a flat collar and a harness that had two leashes connected to both. On our walks, he would put on the brakes, drag me through yards trying to chase squirrels, try to wiggle out of his collar, REFUSE to turn down certain streets - it was really tough. It was also extremely dangerous because I live near very busy roads with a lot of traffic. After just the first week of training, Ringo was noticeably better on his walks and it made our walks SO much more enjoyable. Fast forward to 4 weeks of training, he walks beside me and auto-sits before we cross main road. He no longer rushes in the door knocking me over or when I leave. Instead, he politely sits and waits for me to leave or enter first. Also, he walks very confidently with his head held high and a sashay in his step - its clear he is happier now that he has some structure. About the trainer: he is very knowledgeable and knows A LOT about dog behavior. He spends a lot of time with the dog AND owners answering questions and providing feedback/suggestions on what needs to be worked on. He will explain in detail why/what he is doing. He is extremely trust worthy and very communicative. It's also great to have someone like Paul to call on if I need help with Ringo because his training is for the life time of the dog.

After almost 4 months of trying to deal with our Golden Retriever puppy not listening to us, jumping up onto the couches, surfing the counters, wandering upstairs and chewing on everything, we finally decided it was time to find a professional to work with him. We received Paul's number from our vet, and boy are we glad we did! Paul has been nothing short of amazing! He came to our house every morning for 4 weeks straight to train our puppy and work with him one-on-one. Toward the end of training, Paul even took him to the park and hardware store many days to allow for distractions. He showed my husband and I exactly the kind of training he was doing with our dog and let us know exactly what we needed to do in order to keep our dog in tip-top shape for the rest of our lives. It was incredible to see the transformation of our puppy over those 4 weeks. He now knows the commands- heel, sit, down, sitting at entryways, place, off and free. Also, his behavior has improved significantly. We couldn't be happier with our decision to use Paul. His professionalism, dedication, positive attitude and excellence in dog training certainly make him what he is- "The Dog Professor!" And the best part is there is a lifetime guarantee- if our puppy regresses in any way, we just call Paul up and he will be back to train him! If you are looking for that right person to change both your's and your dog's life for the best, please do yourself a favor and call Paul! This is one decision you will not regret! Thank you, Paul, for everything you have done to make our lives so much easier and happier with our pup!

Quality of his work is amazing! We were overjoyed when we got our furry baby doberman "Copper" back. We literally did not have to lift a finger - they picked up/dropped off Copper. Paul sent us pictures, videos, and text messages while he trained Copper that totally put us at ease. Exceptional communication. With the lifetime training - we are thrilled to continue to use Paul when we need more training/boarding. I have already referred him to a coworker and will continue to recommend Paul for any training needs. Absolutely worth every penny!
