My name is Dean Duet, also known as Double D, or as my friends like to call me, “Dog Dude.” 

After taking my Bichon, Louie to training classes 15 1/2 years ago, I found the passion and decided to pursue a career as a Professional Dog Trainer after leaving my corporate IT sales job 7 years ago. 

I enjoy working with families to teach valuable training methods and techniques to help their dog become a well-behaved member of the family. Whether it’s a rescue from the shelter, or a pure-bred dog from a breeder, Double D Dog Training is here to help!  

My clients are always amazed at how animals naturally gravitate to me. Having been on a spiritual path for many years, I have learned and incorporated many lessons in my work with dogs. I believe my strength as a dog trainer is my connection to the animals through kindness and compassion.

On any given day you could find me with my 16 1/2 year old Bichon, Louie. Whether it’s on a walk by the river, on the beach, at the dog park, or doing volunteer work at a shelter or rescue, you will see us out and about! While Louie is no longer with us, he continues to be the heart of Double D Dog Training.

If you’re at an event and don’t see me, go find out where the dogs are and that’s where I’ll be! 

I look forward to working with you and your furry friend! 


I am a CPDT-KA, Certified Professional Dog Trainer through the Council of Certified Professional Dog Trainers with 7+ years of experience and over 8000 hours training dogs.

The CCPDT has high standards of requiring a minimum 300 hours of dog training experience to sit for the exam along with references, and passing a rigorous 4 hour certification exam covering numerous areas including dog training, equipment, animal husbandry, ethology and learning theory.

In addition, I have completed the Karen Pryor Foundation and Susan Smith Learning Theory dog training courses. I am also a Professional Member of the APDT and a supporting member of the Pet Guild. I have spent many years volunteering at shelters, assisting rescues with fundraising events, doing transports, etc. Beyond my certifications, I’ve worked as a dog groomer for two years, was Vice-President on the board of Spay-Neuter Animal Wellness Clinic (SNAP), and am Pet First Aid and CPR Certified.
