I have owned and operated On Command Dog Obedience Training out of Stevensville, Montana for the past 29 years. Basic obedience training is important for all dogs to have in order to be better companions to live with along with being a foundation for further, more advanced, training such as agility, tracking, search and rescue, etc. I also attempt to keep my prices reasonable and try to follow up with my clients following training sessions. My main goal is to teach people how to train their dogs and to make it fun for them and the dogs in the process.
The majority of the help I give to dog owners is personalized. This includes consultations, problem dog sessions, obedience training , and service dog and therapy dog training. Often times these sessions are held in the homes of my clients. At various times of the year I hold group classes usually in Missoula, Florence, and Hamilton Montana. Most group classes involve basic obedience and in the spring advanced classes are held involving training for AKC obedience competition. I like to keep my training personalized by encouraging my clients to keep in touch with me after our sessions are completed, and I like to follow up with those I work with in to see if things are progressing well with their dogs.

Often times these sessions are held at the homes of my clients. At various times of the year I hold group dog obedience classes. Most of these classes involve basic obedience and in the spring advanced classes are sometimes offered. I like to keep my training as personalized as possible by encouraging clients to keep in touch with me during and after our sessions are completed.
Gary is fun to work with, and his teaching methods are straight forward and easy for both dog and handler to understand and learn from. I took his basic obedience class with my then 8-month-old German Shepherd, and then went on to more advanced obedience work with the goal of eventually showing obedience.
Gary is very helpful in working through problems that might show up during training, and every dog in our basic class finished the class vastly improved from when we all started.

I have taken several group and private lessons, where he helped me achieve the AKC Companion Dog (CD) title.
He truly cares about every student & canine team and will go the extra mile.
Gary's classes are fun and I learn something every time. He knows dog behavior and how to get the best out of owners and dogs. I have also worked with Gary as a co-trainer for a service dog. Again his knowledge of how a dog will respond to various training techniques was invaluable.
I like his calm and professional approach very much!

My grown children and their significant others learned as much obedience as their dogs from Gary's kind, informative instruction.
