Success Stories

Arlo and I did 6 sessions with a reactive dog specialist but nothing helped. Within 10 minutes of training with Preston we had Arlo listening to me and not reacting to anything!

I've been doing things wrong but you've given me the tools and the answers I need to make us happy. I can't believe the progress we made in 20 minutes. Thank you!

Hands on Dog Training

It's time to stop those unwanted behaviors and start living the life you deserve with your dog! 

When you can't prevent your dog from barking, jumping, biting, scratching, chewing, marking, struggling on walks, fear, anxiety, aggression, etc., it can be stressful to say the least.

 

Good news! It's not your dog, it's you. Once you are properly trained, you will be able to prevent unwanted behaviors in any environment and situation just like my clients!

DFW K9 Trainer was founded on the belief that not all dogs are born equal. They each have their own unique traits and mannerisms, and therefore require their own unique and specialized training. That’s where I come in! Whether it’s for basic manners or more complex behavioral issues, I focus on not only training your pet, but teaching you how to effectively communicate with them. This method of training is full of fun techniques that will give you and your pet a happier life together.

I believe it’s never too early or late to teach an old or young dog (and its owner) new behaviors. My tailor-made services are designed with you and your dog in mind to ensure results. I believe in training you while you train your dog. My goal is to provide long-lasting impact through expert training because you have to be able to do this without me.

I have many years of experience in supporting dog owners to make the needed changes in their dog’s habits. My unmatched success and client satisfaction rates are my greatest source of pride. 

Dog training isn’t just about your dog. In fact, the most integral part of the training process is you. That’s why I train you to make sure your training plan fits your lifestyle and is tailored to what you need. With practical and flexible programs, coupled with my constant collaboration with the veterinary and rescue community, I'm here to be your one and only source for quality dog training.

PERSONALIZED DOG TRAINING

This process will be catered to your lifestyle and environment. You will begin making the necessary changes and seeing the resulting improvements in your dog. I will evaluate your progress and we address any remaining issues. Training may take place off site for socialization and exposure therapy purposes. 

We address any behaviors remaining and continue improving on previously-problematic areas. We will write a detailed-personal plan for your lifestyle and routine moving forward so you can effectively take the wheel. Your dog should never stop improving and your bond should grow with time.

Walking my new rescue and bringing  him to work was a daunting task for me. I didn't know where to begin and I'd hired trainers in the past without great results.

Preston was so effective I even hired him to train my staff! The best part is that I finally have a behaviorist to recommend to my clients."
