    My dog loved him from the moment he met him. He def loves animals. He is very patient. Every dog and owner is different but he worked with us and our specific needs, and schedule/family dynamics to make the training easy on both our dog and us. We are very happy with the results and glad that we chose him.

    My life was turning into an episode of Pomeranian Gone Wild and I needed help! Jennifer was terrific; very warm and patient. She devised a simple training plan for my unruly puppy that I feel confident will make us a happier family. I am also pleased with her thoroughness in following up post visit. I would absolutely recommend Jennifer Herrera to other pet parents.

Thumbtack Spotlight

The Dog Tamer

(13 reviews)

My training is for all stages of [a] dog's life from puppy to adult to senior. Most of my clients are everyday people with families and just are looking to have a better relationship with their dog or dogs. I specialize in behavior modification.

You and your dog can benefit from the assertive energy that Tom can provide on his trainings. Tom of The Dog Tamer has been training and taming all types of dogs, big or small, for over 10 years. He has been called "miracle worker" by clients, as he does all types of behavioral modification from excessive barking, jumping, nipping to any destructive behavior.

...it gives me the greatest pleasure to hear their positive feedback, and of course, see the transformation of their relationships between their dogs in the direction they are looking for, as they learn how to properly communicate with them.

Tom's most favorite and successful project was working with Reggie, his neighbor's beagle mix dog, which had several behavioral issues. The dog responded quickly to Tom and after a few lessons, transformed into a well-behaved and calm companion.

Tame your dog and get results right away. Let Tom help you with that.
