Introduction: Hey, there! I'm Master Dog Trainer Chris Williams. I've been blessed to be in this profession for the better part of a decade and over my 14,000 hours of study, I have learned some hard lessons, easy tricks, and straight up hacks for how to get a dog to behave perfectly, and easily. My training philosophy is simply this: mom works with her puppies and communicates really clearly all without using treats, beating, shock collars, or any other gadget/gimmick. I've reduced the system mom uses to 5 key secrets I teach in all of our private lessons. The idea is, once you know them, you don't need a dog training professional anymore, not even me!

They have been so helpful with training! In one lesson our dogs are already making progress. We can't wait to have the rest.

Chris and Hooper have been absolutely amazing! My dog started out as pretty aggressive towards people (especially males) and other dogs. But she has been improving so much thanks to their training. We still have a few more appointments, but I can already say that their training is well worth it, and if you have an aggressive dog that you don't think can improve, please call Perfect Pack! I am beyond grateful for all they have done for my Tatertot, as well as all the knowledge they have given me!

I contacted Perfect Pact to help me with a special request since I do not own any dogs. I spend time at an animal shelter and noticed if the dogs were better trained it would help their adoption chances. Leash training is the most common request. Perfect Pact met me at the shelter and we worked with a few dogs. They immediately pointed out some techniques and by the end of the session I could see the results. Their training lead to adoptions because I could show the new owners how the dogs respond to training.

Details: 2 - 10 years old • Large (41 - 70 lbs) • Medium (26 - 40 lbs) • Private lessons • General obedience training • Leash pulling • Barking • Biting • Chewing • Destructive behavior • My home, venue, etc.

Our initial discussion with Perfect Pack Dog Training helped us understand what was possible and how quickly we would see results. We haven't started our training yet, but I am hopeful their experience will help us tremendously.

I was at a lost for training my dog to get into a car. I had been told by several people to take Jaxsen back to the shelter. I had never known a dog that did not love riding in the car. I love this little guy. I love traveling and have wanted to take Jaxsen with at times but could not because of this situation. He is three and since I did not know any of his back story, did not know if this situation could be fixed. He is sweet, loving, loves cuddles and gives plenty of kisses. Chris came out and as I stood in disbelief in just a one hour lesson Jaxsen was able to get inside the car. I will have to do some follow up training of course but Chris was awesome, professional and punctual. The work quality was awesome as he kept me engaged and explained why I had to do this or that. Chris is very enthusiastic about what he does.If I have any questions I will not hesitate to call but I know that if I do my part everything is going to be great. I love traveling and have wanted to take Jaxsen with at times but could not because of this situation. If you are in need of a great dog trainer, Perfect Pack Dog Training is the one for you. Do not hesitate, just call. You will be glad you did.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    All of our programs are Private Lesson based. Dogs are a product of their environment and this means that sometimes we're doing things with our dogs that are accidentally creating or maintaining their issues. I assign homework to owners in between lessons so they don't accidentally undo the progress we're making. Haha For years I did Board and Trains but what I found is that the percentage of dogs that return back to how they were after they return back home, is astonishing. What's even more amazing is when I came for the follow up lesson, the dog began to act right again. The reason? Because the owner doesn't have to become proficient in how to work with their dogs to gain the progress. Since the product was not dependent upon the handling skills of the owner, the environment that was conducive of the problem, recreated it. That's why I'm so big on private lessons. We shifted to private lessons ONLY and saw a DRASTIC uptick in productivity and success. As far as rates go, we have single lessons, and multi lesson packages. For the multi lesson packages we carry a massive discount because we bundle them all together for maximum savings. So instead of billing you the single lesson rate over and over, we squish it into 1 bulk-discounted fee on the front end.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I love talking with people to find out what all we can help with, and understand them and their needs better. Once I've gotten acquainted with this a little more, I can suggest the right package for them. I'm also a little old fashioned in that I like to connect with people.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    This is always such an interesting question to answer simply because there is no one nationally accredited dog trainer certification and I never attended a "school". I had an intensive intern/mentorship with a master trainer and that was transformative, for me. That said, I've always believed that dogs I've worked with were the best references and my reviews were the best credentials. 😊👍
