Why The Dog Boss?

When choosing a dog trainer people typically consider the following; price, experience and the trainer's success rate. Our prices are competitive matching those of the big chain pet stores, but what sets us apart is the process used to discover your dog's needs. We don't waste time with small talk and senseless meet and greets. We do all of our housekeeping prior to meeting you and your dog which means we are training and addressing issues during session one! In addition, we only train using the individual method. We find group classes to be ineffective and a waste of valuable time and money. There is a high probability that your dog's behavioral problems are centered at home, so it only makes sense to train there!

Our competitive pricing is noteworthy but what really sets us apart is our experience. The Dog Boss is a retired Police Officer and a seasoned Police K9 Handler with 20 years under his belt. His ability spans from teaching basic manners to off leash control. In addition, the Dog Boss fosters dogs in need and has experience with every age and breed of dog. Working with foster dogs ensures that there is never a shortage of new experiences! New experiences and new dogs cause us to think outside of the box and get creative with our training techniques.

Finally, our success rate is excellent! Please take a few moments to read the testimonials. We have trained dogs that were thought to be hopeless and shaped them into loved and valued family members. It takes effort, time and determination, but the end result is more than noteworthy. The Dog Boss knows that success is dependent upon communication between the handler and dog. Without proper communication, positive motivation and suitable correction everyday practical behaviors cannot be accomplished.

Let's get training!!
