I love working with people to help their pup become a well-behaved member of the family!
Dean was a excellent trainer for our older dog and new puppy. He helped us lessen the anxiety of gettiing our older dog to accept his new baby sister. He also showed us how to fix some with our older dogs behavioral issues. He would send follow up emails, dog articles, and would call to follow up after each session. We appreciate his dedication and love for these animals. Highly recommend him.
Dean worked with myself and my Tasmanian Devil of a Corgi! He really helped work through all of the behavior problems that I was having with my dog and gave me a variety of methods to practice the obedience on my own time. He also took the time to teach Charlie some cool tricks! I would highly recommend Dean to anyone who has a dog and wants to work on obedience or just teach an old dog some new tricks!!
For the last two years, I have been taking our Aussie, named Stitches, to a local groomer, Pooches Day Spa, located at the end of Fair Oaks Parkway in Fair Oaks Ranch, TX. Initially, Stitches was reluctant at being dropped off, but as time went by, Stitches attitude has gone from reticent to eager. Seven weeks ago I engaged Dean Duet who works at Pooches Day Spa and who also has a dog training business evenings and weekends, to come out to our house on Sundays and work with Stitches and I on obedience training. What I have concluded participating in the training, is that Dean is the reason Stitches likes going to the groomers. Dogs have an innate sense for gauging the range of people's emotions like anger, fear, sadness, love, kindness, empathy and warmth. Just like humans, dogs respond to the emotions that they sense in the humans they encounter. Stitches has responded in kind to the positive emotions radiated by Dean. And just as kids learn that Dad's mean fun and Mom's mean business, Stitches has quickly learned to want to be cooperative in the training process. It is the empathy and warmth as much as it is the great treats that Dean uses as rewards in the training process that Stitches is responding to. I can recommend Dean without reservation as a dog trainer.
Dean is an excellent trainer! He taught us many simple, fun, and easy tricks to help us with our two dogs. They are behaving so much better since he worked with our family. Our kids really enjoyed the experience as well. Thanks for all your help!

Took my own dog to dog training 14 years ago and fell in love with dog training! A huge fan of Cesar Millan, Victoria Stillwell and many other dog trainers.
Private in-home training with a variety of different breed of dogs from german shephers, bulldogs, labs, Golden Retrievers, Golden Doodles, Schnauzers, bichons and many others.
I enjoy working with families that have children and want to get them involved in the dog training.
After working with a pitbull mix for a few months with fearful issues getting in the car, I was able to desensitize the dog to get in my car and go for rides.
