Introduction: 🐾 I train YOU to execute the cues of basic life skills (sit/down, come, leave-it etc.), communicate and coexist in a mutually loving relationship with your canine. I also do reactive work, depending on severity. Having trouble with your dog being OK around other people or other dogs? Just need someone to show you how to get the dog to walk properly or "stay"? I got you covered. I teach positive reinforcement only. No choke chains or pinch collars...no shock involved! You'll learn to get the dog to respond voluntarily through patience, consistency and positive feedback. I teach puppy levels and adult dog levels. *Commencement on training depends upon evaluation. Short evaluation is included in 1st session. *Discounts on mult/session pkgs 😉 *Cancellation Policy details outlined below in FAQ

Dog Training

Even though we are experienced dog owners, John has been a lifesaver for us!!! He has truly listened to all of our training issues, and has gone above and beyond to assist us with each one! He is full of training tips and new ideas that we hadn’t thought of before! Once hired, he instantly becomes available through text… all the time! He is more than willing to answer texts and questions, and help with any problems that might arise!! He is very knowledgeable, positive, and our dogs love him… and so do we!!!! We highly recommend him to even the most experienced dog owners!!!

John is an excellent trainer. I am so pleased with his work that I recommended to him to my neiborhood group "Dog Lovers of Missouri City".

10/10 will DEFINITELY hire again as/if needed. John has been extremely accommodating, he exudes a love for dogs, has a natural connection with them, and is extremely patient with me (as the frustrated and impatient dog owner), and his training (including owner AND dog) has been very effective. Can’t say enough good things!

John loves, respects and understands dogs. I truly enjoyed and appreciated his gentle and effective approach incorporating positive reinforcements but no punishments. My two dogs responded to him right away and enjoyed 3 sessions of his training. I wish I had his “magic” over dogs but he taught me practical tools and knowledge that I can continue practicing and utilizing with my dogs. He has also given me the confidence and comfort that I can handle them. He answered all of my questions and concerns, and continues to be my lifeline for my dog questions. It’s my first time to use service via Thumbtack. At first I wasn’t sure if it was the right decision but I’m now grateful and blessed to find John there. I highly recommend John and having in-home dog training where a trainer can observe how your dog behaves in his daily environment. His price is very reasonable and that’s plus! Thank you John!

FAQs

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

    Pricing depends on situation and evaluation. Rates start at $98 per 1hr session, per dog / $160-2 (with 3 - 1hr session sign up suggested. Discount for advance payment of $90/session, after approved evaluation) So ....$270 to start (for 3 sessions). You can always just go one session at a time for $98 per session. NO CHECKS accepted *Multiple ways to pay but discount for cash 🤩👍 ALSO : **!! I have to charge an extra $10 per session if you live west of HWY 99, North of Beltway or East of 45** Sorry folks, travel expense😁 *Cancellation Policy: A cancellation due to weather or family emergency is absolutely understandable. 24 hours notice is greatly appreciated. - If you have paid for sessions in advance, you will forfeit that session starting with 2nd cancellation. - After 2nd cancellation and if doing one session at a time, you will have to pay in advance for next session (no refund at that point).

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

    Must feel comfortable before moving on. Very important

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

    Years ago I put in time leading my own dog training classes as senior dog trainer at Spring/Klein Petco. After leaving, became a certified dog trainer through Animal Behavior College and started John Slaughter's Positive Reinforcement Training. I also had the amazing opportunity to work with Stephanie Bennett at her Believe in DOG puppy training center! Ahhhh-mazing place! AND I am CPDT certified! 😉👍
