Holding personal, in home, consultations with clients involves the majority of time I spend each year in my business. I offer this service seven days a week for those dog owners want individual help with any issues they may be having with their dogs. These issues can be all the way form raising a puppy, leash manners, aggression, and more. I also offer in home private obedience training lessons. I begin each consultation with a questionnaire in order to find out the owner’s previous experience with dogs, detailed descriptions of any behavior issues, and to get an overall idea of their dog’s temperament. I will then give the owners a list of Ideas or demonstrate on how to begin modifying the dogs behavior issues. After completing the consultation I often will follow up by contacting my clients to see how their dogs are progressing.
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.
