As a first-time puppy/dog parent, I don't know how I would have handled things without Jeff keeping me from falling off the proverbial ledge. He was great in helping me manage expectations … stressing positive reinforcement while keeping strong boundaries and demonstrating an understanding of the individual animal. Jeff is fantastic at working through and prioritizing areas to focus on depending on where the dog is in their development cycle.

I had a few trainers stop by to meet my puppy Sophie and Jeff was the best by far. He was great with her and I could tell that Sophie really trusted him and enjoyed working with him. Jeff was amazing at showing me how to use positive reinforcement to shape her behavior and gave lots of great tips on potty training, preventing separation anxiety, encouraging calm behavior when greeting new people, and how to continue with mat training

Jeff is so helpful. He's quite insightful but approaches every dog with humility, recognizing that each dog is unique and every training challenge is an opportunity for him to learn more. We had him do an in-person consultation and training session, and followed up by phone. We took his advice and watched our dog's behavior improve. He is generous with his time and his advice. We recommend him wholeheartedly!

Jeff's a very experienced and knowledgeable dog trainer. We recently had a session with Jeff where he spent time with our 9 month old rescue, Coby, and our family to discuss Coby's behavior and strategies for training Coby. Jeff quickly and clearly understood what was best for Coby in terms of how we need to respond to his behaviors and train him moving forward. I found Jeff to be very thoughtful and instructive. He was also excellent at explaining exactly why his recommended training techniques make sense given Coby's background and disposition.

I've worked with Jeff twice now and each time his provided great customized advice that we've been able to put into practice. The latest time we met I was having major problems with my dog becoming fearful and aggressive in my dog friendly office. Jeff had some specific suggestions that have helped a ton and probably more powerful he really changed my mindset about what was going on so that I could relax and in turn my dog could start having success. Thank you so much Jeff!
