You'll learn how to master the walk!
We show you how to create balance and provide the leadership this pup needs as animal and canine which, as a result, earns his leadership respect for you to turn undesired behaviors around. This means providing your dog with consistent exercise, structure, discipline, socialization and only lastly affection.
Humanizing a dog fulfills only human needs. It creates a leadership void for the dog which they have no choice but to fill in on their own. Whenever we bring a dog into our home, it is our responsiblity to provide the leadership which creates the stability and balance intended in nature. We will show you how to turn the pack hierarchy into its rightful position with you as leader and dog as follower, which is ultimately what human and most dogs want.

We customize our approach for the needs of you and your dog after meeting you and assessing your dog's temperament, obedience and socialization.

"We sought Donny's help after we adopted a 2 year old American Bulldog who had been returned twice already to the shelter. Our "Pear" was mostly loving and caring with us, but growled at and even attacked our guests. She pulled so hard on leash that even my husband could barely hold onto her, and she bit us if we knocked her off the couch. We tried other trainers with different training methods, but they actually made our girl worse with their treat methods. When Donny came over, this was the first person our girl was polite and calm with instead of barking, growling and trying to bite. Donny truly "talks" to dogs. She took our dog for a few rehab sessions and brought us up to speed with lessons in between times.
Pear is now over the hump thanks to Donny. We now know how to lead her, live with her, enjoy her, and keep everyone safe. We know how affection is like arsenic for Pear and have figured out how and when to love her without making her think she's the chief cheese. This was hard for my family but we get it saved Pear's life. We can't thank Donny enough!" - Ashley K., Houston
