    Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, Value I can’t begin to express my gratitude for Thomas and his training expertise! I saved a 1.5 year old golden/Australian shepherd from the euthanasia list due to the extreme abuse he had suffered over his short little life, he became to a point he didn’t trust humans. For a year I had him in trainings, boot camps, and just everything I could think of to help him be a successful do in society. I met Thomas at our 3rd attempt of training, our second boot camp experience. Our first boot camp experience was awful, the dog I dropped off came back almost worst. Thomas was able to connect with Dexter in a way that no other trainers had. They developed a bond that he was able to listen and get Dexter to understand the behavior modification that was needed. The way Thomas could read Dexters social cues were on point. I had caught on to them because I was his foster mom, and he lived with me, but Thomas picked up on them in a day or two. In 10 weeks it went from Dexter needing 3 day introductions to new people, to 20 minutes. From learning his commands of place, quiet, off and needing minimal reinforcement. It was amazing to see a dog so close to being euthanized.. a dog who was fear aggressive now responding so well and able to even have strangers bath him and rub his belly (sensitive and normally reactive spots before). Thomas truly understands dogs and behaviors. He has a passion for this and uses that to make a difference in these dogs lives. Icing on the cake was when Dexter was due to be adopted Thomas went to go drop him off and do a training to the new family, there was an incident outside of Dexters control and instead of continuing with the day which would not have been the best thing for Dexter or his new owners, Thomas volunteered to let Dexter go decompress at his own house, and start fresh the next day. If this is not a 10 star service I don’t know what is! I am very thankful for Thomas as I don’t know that Dexter would be where he is at now without him! Every family who is training their dog needs a Thomas! So thank you Thomas! You have saved Dexter and imprinted on us forever! This is truly your calling!

    Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability Thomas is a fantastic trainer and gets great results. We sent our 4ish year old Australian Kelpie to a 5 week course with him and the results are amazing. Before training he was difficult to control on leash and had major separation anxiety. Now we get comments from people on the street that think our pup is a police K9. We have another dog that we plan to send off to training as soon as we can!

    Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Reliability, Responsiveness, Value If you are looking for a professional dog trainer, I highly recommend Thomas. Through my experience with Thomas, I have noticed that he is great with training rescue dogs who have been abused and/or under-socialized. He is specifically great with training aggressive dogs (human and or dog aggressive). He was always very understanding of my concerns and helped me learn a great deal about rescue dogs. He responds to all questions / concerns quickly, is very reliable and accommodating. I will definitely be taking my future dogs to Thomas for training!
