ABOUT DEAN

 

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, I found the passion and decided to pursue a career as a Professional Dog Trainer.

I enjoy working with families to teach valuable training methods 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 can find me with my 13 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 the shelter, you will see us out and about! 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!
