Your success is my goal.
As a dog trainer, I live vicariously through the success of my clients. Here are a few of their stories.
"Dylan was an excellent instructor and Yogi and I are both happier for the time we spent with Dylan. Dylan worked with us using a well-defined format that started with an assessment and a series of lessons that built on each other. We started our lessons just as the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays were kicking in and Dylan was incredibly accommodating about making schedule changes when necessary, and ensured that all of our classes were successfully completed. Since taking that training, I’ve stayed in touch with Dylan and often hire him to take Yogi to playgroup or board him. We trust Dylan with the keys to our home and with Yogi when we are away.
I’m happy to refer Dylan to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy, professional dog trainer who is focused on customer care and who will surely love and appreciate the animals that he works with." —J.P. Shipherd, Albany
"Dylan helped us with our King Charles Cavalier when he was only 6 months old. Like any 6 month old, he had some minor behavioral issues which needed attention. After graduating from the 4 week program with Dylan, we saw drastic changes in his behavior as well as his attitude and attentiveness. Dylan's techniques revolved around positive reinforcement which we think was key to the outcome of the program. Dylan's training techniques as well as his one-on-one consultations were top notch. He is not only a great trainer, but a great person. If I could give 6 stars, I would. Great job Dylan and best of luck with your future endeavors!" —Ben P., Albany
"Dylan was a pleasure to work with. He instantly connected with my dog and it was obvious that he loves what he does. He is also an amazing dog trainer and was able to fully answer all of our questions. He has a solid understanding of dog behavior and is excellent at conveying that information to others in a way that they can actually apply to their everyday life. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a dog trainer!" —Allison Bowers, Albany
"My dog responded very well to Dylan's training techniques. His patience and knowledge make his training class a treat for both the pet and owner. I recommend for anyone looking for assistance with a new or old dog."
—Toby Pettinelli, Albany
"My dog and I took a 5-class basic obedience course with Dylan. I initially felt overwhelmed with the thought of training my new dog, but Dylan made it really easy and my dog immediately caught on with the training methods. The classes were also fun and interactive. Dylan really knows dogs and is able to transfer that knowledge to his clients and their pets. If I ever need help with my dog in the future, I will definitely see Dylan again."
—Emily Bean, Albany
"Dylan helped us with basic obedience training for our 7 month old chocolate lab at our home. Over the course of six weeks, Dylan's patience and expertise transformed our crazy puppy into a well behaved but still fun-loving dog. Dylan was always on time, very dedicated and always pleasant. In addition to hands on training, he supplied us with articles on dog obedience to reinforce what we were learning. I would highly recommend Dylan to anyone!"
—Debbie Walsh, Menands
"Dylan has served as our primary dogwalker for our beloved boxer, Joba, for nearly seven years. In that time, we have come to know Dylan well and cannot speak highly enough about his professionalism, his dedication to his job and his compassion and empathy for our dog. He has consistently performed his duties - both the expected and the unexpected - with commitment and tenacity. We have often called on Dylan for last minute needs and he has never refused. Additionally, he has shown great initiative with regards to things he noticed in the course of his job performance - such as our dog's health or something seeming askew in our house. He is truly one of the most reliable, dedicated individuals I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and working with. " —Christina Dickinson, Albany
"Dylan's advice on leash training our adult rescue dog was life-changing. He really understands dogs, and is a natural at training." —Emma Potik, Albany
