I help you get the calm, respectful, behaved dog you dreamed of having.
“It’s not what he does, it’s how he does it.”
—Pam H. DOuGTrainer client
Patience is the rule. In two hours, you get the relationship you want with your dog, using no treats, no clickers, and no e-collars or prong collars.
I'm teaching Nature's energy, and Nature's rules. It's a powerful program. Once you know the program and the method, everything starts falling into place.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
Any trainer who puts a time limit on their training is not worthy of your time nor your money. Dog training is a race where the last one crossing the finish line is the winner, and that always has to be your dog.
Also, "patience is the rule."
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
As the dog's owner, how much am I the problem here?
The DOuGTrainer's most successful clients are the ones who say, "We know we're the ones who need to get trained."
