Dog training type
Board and train at a facility
James was calm, clear in his direction and his experience showed. He also brought his personal dog that was amazing and showed he could train a dog. I was skeptical going in but my dog absolutely was better behaved and showed no aggression in the same situations when I followed James' instructions. It was hard work but worth it.May 25, 2017

James is the BEST dog trainer, my labradoodle responded really well to him. She learned fast and is a dream dog because of her training. james also continues to help us any time we have questions.Nov 26, 2015
James Trained and boarded our german shepard who is a behaved dog but he took her to a new level. She is now off leash trained and she doesn't have any of her bad habits of jumping on people and counter surfing. I highly recommend James as he put in the time more than what was discussed for our dogDec 27, 2014
We got the great pleasure of working with James to train our 9 month old pitbull puppy. When he started working with us, Arya was not following commands well and we didn't exactly know what to do to manage her. He introduced us to the e collar which definitely helped to train her to become more obedient. While it is still a work in progress, and more consistency needs to be done on our part, we have noticed Arya following our commands better. Thank you to James at dedicated dog training for his professionalism, patience and timely responses to all of my crazy emails!!Jan 27, 2015
I can't say enough good things about Dedicated Dog Training. Since our very first phone conversation, James, has been helpful, knowledgeable, and understanding; even going above and beyond to offer some extremely helpful tips on surviving my first few days with my German Shepherd rescue. Before working with Dedicated Dog Training, my dog had no obedience training. He didn't know sit or stay, he was wild and he basically pulled me down the block on his leash. Now, after several weeks of training, he listens to all the commands, his energy is focused on being obedient and he walks on his leash like a perfect gentleman. We've even started to work on off leash commands! Working with James has given me the tools to be a good dog owner. He gives you the knowledge, the foundation and the confidence to train your dog the right way. Not to mention, he is always available to answer any and all questions or concerns you may have. Dedicated Dog has done wonders for me and my dog. I would absolutely recommend them to everyone!Feb 2, 2016
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Pure love for dogs!
- What types of customers have you worked with?Most common are enabling them to have better control over their puppies and dogs inside and outside of the home. We train dogs how to walk nicely on the leash and in many instances off the leash as well. We also, train dogs how to be obedient when placed in environments of distraction as well as teaching the dog owner on how to handle such motivators.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?First and foremost, the customer should do their own research prior to interviewing a candidate to train their dog or puppy. This research should include but not limit itself to: different types of dog and puppy training methods, a comparison of content on websites (some actually cater their contact to the art of training dogs, others cater their contact to signing customers up (this is our opinion), but probably most important....customer reviews, recommendations and referrals. Lastly, your gut feeling after speaking with the dog trainer.
