Introduction: I have been a certified dog trainer from Animal Behavior College since 2011. I go to the clients and provide private one-on-one training. I also provide dog sitting and walking services. I will be giving you the tools to communicate better with your dog and to have a closer relationship with them. I will be helping you and your dog to become better together. I enjoy when I see the clients start implementing what they have learned and the dog responds to him/her more positively and intently, deepening their relationship with each other, and both are happier.

Gus is both knowledgeable and professional. I honestly think he’s a dog psychologist because of how much he understands a dog’s behavior. I had him teach me how to teach my 4 month old puppy general commands, how to discourage unwanted behavior and leash training. He also gave me tips and pointers on potty training and crate training which were also useful. My puppy is a maltese and husky mix. I like how Gus had an explanation or reasoning for every tip or pointer he gave out. When I asked about questions he also had good answers with reasoning which made me think he definitely knows what he is doing. He is punctual and responsive. I would definitely recommend to a friend and Id love to work with him in the near future again. Btw, the tips and pointers he gives and shows you, you really need to practice those with your dog. If you are consistent with dog, it works!

Gus is really experienced and very helpful, he pointed out my dog leash and harness are not right for puppy training and recommended right one, and also walked the dog with me to show me and explained how, I used his teaching to walk my dog, it really improved my dogs walk a lot. There are also lots of other tips he taught me, and answered all my questions. I’m satisfied with Gus training service.

Oh my goodness Gus has saved us literally thousands of dollars with our 10month old Weimaraner . His techniques work and are practical! We’ve gone to other trainers who’ve told us that our dog is this , he’s that, his need this program he’s needs that ... and Gus was able to pinpoint the real issue and help us tackle it . Thanks Gus !
