I am so excited that John was available to lead me in training our two rescue pups. He is professional and quite knowledgeable. He takes his time in asking specific questions as to what our goals are and his gentle methods are exactly what I was looking for. The homework in between trainings are very obtainable goals and my pups are already responding after just our first session with John! If you are searching for a dog trainer, look no further, you have found your guy.Aug 18, 2020Verified

Wow did I get lucky in finding John the dog whisperer. He is exactly what my puppy and I need. He really knows how to talk to her and get her to start acting a better way. This morning instead of my screaming "No" - I used some of his methods and they really worked. I am very excited to begin my training with John. Thank you.Jun 2, 2020Verified

John came to my home to give training for my two dogs, and for my husband and I as well. He listens to your concerns and addresses each one with a particular strategy, following through to make sure that both the dog and the owner(s) understands. He has a fantastic repertoire with dogs and he is able to convey to a dog what behavior is desired. It was an eye-opening experience. He was very thorough as well. He gave us items to work on with each dog, and how to communicate better with our own pets. I really enjoyed the session and we want him to come back for additional sessions! I would definitely recommend John!Apr 7, 2020Verified

On time, very professional. Worked on a few basic training with great response from our puppy. Made a game plan for the next session. All around positive feedback all aroundDec 7, 2020Verified

We really loved our first session with John... as soon as he stepped foot inside, he used the situation as a training opportunity, and our pup responded very well to him also. We are excited to get started with his many recommendations and all the training suggestions and information will be tremendously valuable for us, and especially our 5 mo. old doodle :)Oct 15, 2020Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing depends on situation and evaluation. Rates start at $92 per 1hr session (with 3 - 1hr session sign up minimum, at a discounted rate for new students of $83/session, after approved evaluation) So ....$249 to start (for 3 sessions). $92 per session, after that. 🤩👍
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Must get to know each other and feel comfortable before moving on. Very important
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I spent 2 years leading my own dog training classes as senior dog trainer at Spring/Klein Petco. Then became a certified dog trainer through Animal Behavior College. Currently a puppy day school instructor and group class instructor at Stephanie Bennett's Believe in DOG Training.
