We  have had four dogs over the years and five dog trainers.  With our  current dogs, I found that Dan was the best at explaining their behavior  and at helping us learn how to guide them.

Dan is an excellent trainer. We tried  several approaches to get our young Lab under control with little  success. Dan was able to determine the best way to train her - and us!   We now have a dog who understands the rules and willingly complies  (most of the time) and we know how to address the mistakes when she  forgets. Thank you, Dan!

Dan came to our house to help us with our 6 year old bischon, Buddy, who was marking everywhere in our house. Dan spent over an hour with us and Buddy, observing and talking with us about Buddy’s needs. To our amazement, following our meeting with Dan, we began initiating some of his suggestions and Buddy has not had one marking accident in two weeks!! Thanks, Dan!

Dan the Dog Boss could easily be renamed to Dan the Magnificent Dog Boss or Dan the Great Dog Boss.  Well, we all know actions speak louder than words, so let me tell you about my experience. It began, about 6 months ago, when my wife and I rescued a mixed breed, mainly cattle dog and part beagle. The dog had been spending the last year or so in the basement of her owner’s cellar because they had run out of time and patience to care for her. Her name is Daisy and she has plenty of energy and seemed friendly to all. It did not appear that she had any training, just a tremendous amount of energy.  We got her home and she immediately began enjoying her ¼ acre fenced in yard. Next, I tried to take her for a walk with a regular collar and a six foot leash. Getting the collar on was the 1st challenge, the walk was worse; she pulled me over and dragged me a short distance down the road. This was only the beginning of our challenges. She not only could not walk on a leash but she also continuously barked, pulled, dug under the fence, ran away at every opportunity, and would not let us touch her to administer flea and tick chemical , or simply petting.  Nearly immediately, I knew I needed help and fast! I called a few places: Petco and the like had seemingly nothing to help my situation. Then I called Dan the Dog Boss! Whom I found on-line.  He carefully listened to me describing my situation, developed a plan to get Daisy and us on track. Shortly we began a well-designed and professionally delivered program that yields new results during every lesson.  In about 5 months, Dan has helped us solve all the problems previously mentioned by training us to do the things necessary, in a tender loving and safe manner, to get Daisy to do the things we want her to do. Our experience with Dan the Dog Boss has been a win win situation for us all. He provides personal service at your home. When he sees the problem he’ll immediately help fix it!
