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!

Chris's technique to train the humans in techniques used by mother dogs is brilliant. We've had only one lesson and are already seeing results. Also love that we control when we are done with our "homework" and ready for the next lesson. Thank you Chris!

We reached out to Chris after our puppy, Rex, started resource guarding a bone. We knew we immediately needed expert help to make sure we set up our family and Rex for success. Prior to Chris, we worked with another trainer. That trainer was too aggressive and really scared Rex. We were so uncomfortable with that experience that we knew we needed to find a different option. We found Chris through Thumbtack and we are so grateful. His method of focusing on positive rewarding/reinforcement really resonated with us. And at our first session, Chris really made an effort to get to know Rex and make Rex comfortable with him. Since then, Chris has helped us build a solid foundation with Rex. We have really been able to focus on our relationship and how we interact with Rex. Chris’s style of training is that we leave each session with homework. We then work on that homework for as long as we need to. When we are ready to move to the next step, we are able to schedule our next session. In this way, Chris’s program is not a quick fix program that scares the dog into submission. It is a long-term program that teaches you as an owner how to best understand and advocate for your dog. Nothing is rushed. As of today, we are through more than half of our eight sessions. And we have seen a great improvement in Rex. We are currently working on teaching Rex to “share” bones, which is the whole reason we sought out training in the first place. Although some days we feel frustrated with Rex, seeing him sharing a bone is a huge improvement. We can tell that Chris’s methods are working. As I said before, we are so grateful to be working with Chris. He has given us hope for Rex. We would definitely recommend Chris to anyone with any dog in any condition. If you love your dog like we love Rex but your dog needs refining, it would not be a mistake to contact Chris.

Extremely personable and knowledgeable. Just on our first lesson, he really helped me a lot with my 120 pound Rottweiler. He also was knowledgeable about my breed as well as the best way to approach my dog. I highly recommend Chris for any dog training needs.

Dog Training

i reached out to chris because i was worried about my husky (buddy) being anxious and nervous around people and smaller dogs, which i worried could lead to aggression.. after only 1 session, everything he has taught me works and my dog is behaving better than ever.. 2 days after our session, i moved with a friend who has a tiny and defensive dog.. buddy and him are getting along great and loving life, which i would have never imagined happening before.. chris even worked with me on the payment since i am not working right now.. i would recommend him 100 times out of 100!! he is a great trainer and an even better human being

Chris responded to my request quickly and made time to speak with me so we could work on a training plan for my doggos. I'm excited about the next few months

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. 😊👍
