Dog D is amazing! Dean is very knowledgeable and passionate about dog training. Our sheepadoodle is a new dog! She used to be very scared to meet new people, now she is so much more confident and much happier in public areas. Thank you Dean!

This is Cooper...He completed his Puppy Obedience Training with Owner/Trainer of Double D Dog Training, Doug Duet. Dean is amazing, he uses positive reinforcement to train; which Cooper loved.

Dean was amazing! He knew how to exactly handle my dog and teach us things I did not know! I am a first time pet owner and got my pet right before Covid started, so we had a bit of aggression problem when people came to our house but he was never aggressive outside. One day I took him out to his vet appointment and for some reason he was not acting right and was acting very aggressive toward everyone, As soon as I got home I contacted Dean and we started from there. My dog Brownie is a small dog and as Dean had mentioned small dogs tend to be scared and protecting a lot more because of their size. First day didn’t go as bad, but the second time Dean came, Brownie surprised us all he was not barking or being aggressive toward Dean or people that came to our house for the first time at all! We had a problem with potty as well and during the sessions With Dean the issue has been solved and we’re almost not having any more problems with potty as well! He knows what his doing and his best at it! He goes by the dogs personality and does not force anything. Hands down his the best out here.

Loved our experience with Dean! He totally transformed our boy Super. He went from knowing one command to more than I can count and his confidence is sooo much better. Dean was great with our kids and including them as well. Definitely recommend him!

Dean was incredible with our 5 month old Maltipoo, who is very strong-headed and rambunctious, and who we had our doubts would be trainable. We were very wrong! Dean comes to your home for each of the four sessions and immediately bonds with the owners and the dog. We had been unable to get our dog to sit as she wanted the treat in my hand and would be a doggie pogo stick trying to get it. Within minutes of being at our home, Madi was sitting over and over again. Dean had her “touching” his hand at the “touch” command instantly and walking around the house on a leash—another reason for the training. On the second session, he had her sitting and staying and “leaving it” —a command to get the dog to leave what they’re focusing on, items they’ve picked up, and nipping of ankles while walking. Other commands were taught as well during the sessions that have made our little “unrteachable” puppy completely obedient. I am amazed, elated, and so proud of Dean’s and the puppy’s accomplishments. Double D Training and Dean are well worth the expense and time. The peace of mind of us knowing what to do and when to do it, as well as knowing it could keep the dog safe, are awesome. I highly recommend Dean and his training.

Dean worked with my 1.5 year old Maltipoo, Ollie, for 4 sessions and saw immediate improvement from session one. Ollie had the basic training (sit, lay down, etc.) but was a terrible walker and terrible out in public along with a few other things Dean observed that we didn’t. We followed through with everything Dean suggested and Ollie is now a new and improved dog. I wish Dean could stick around now that him and Ollie have become buds but we know he has other families to help! Thank you Dean, you are amazing!!

We cannot recommend Double D Dog Training enough. Why you ask?1. DOES NOT use a shock collar.2. Dean, the trainer, comes to your home.3. Rewards the positive behavior, and helps you, the pup parent, to understand why your pup can be naughty and how to correct that behavior in a very positive way.4. Very positive reviews.5. Dean’s just an all around nice guy who genuinely wants your pup to be the best they can be.After adopting a dog recently, we quickly realized he needed more training than what we could provide to him ourselves. After doing some research, we decided to choose Double D Dog Training. The 4-week Basic Obedience course is packed with training and information. Any question we had, he answered. Dean’s insight and knowledge, as well as his training skills, are top notch.Very highly recommend Double D Dog Training!

We had an amazing experience with Double D Dog Training.Huxley is a wonderfully sweet dog but had challenges with fear aggression and would try to defend our home as much as a 6 lb ball of fluff can... Dean helped us understand that Hux needed more boundaries, activity and mental stimulation to build his self-confidence. Through his patient instruction, he not only earned Huxley's trust but he has helped us learn how to help make Huxley feel safe with strangers.Dean was knowledgeable, engaging and passionate about helping to create better human-dog bonds. He quickly assessed our problems and recommended solutions that allowed us to start seeing results after the first session. I highly recommend him!

Dean is great. Me and my wife loved working with him. Our dog is definitely not easy to work with but Dean managed it great. Our dog changed completely from the first session and she just keeps improving. Deans training and tips work every time. Thanks for taking the challenge of making our lives much better.

Dean was responsive from the first phone call I made to him. He does what he says he will do! We had four lessons with our Goldendoodle (8-months) and our doodle is now one of the family members. He interacts with our young son now because of his training. His teaching WORKS and we highly recommend him for anyone needed a 1:1 trainer.

My sweet dog , Jenny, and I just completed the 4 session, beginners obedience class with Dean Duet at Double D Dog Training. It was so needed for both of us and Dean made it happen. Jenny is 6 months old and I won’t tell you my age except I learned you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. Dean was so very kind and patient with us both. I can’t possibly recommend Dean at Double D enough. Thanks again, Dean!!

We absolutely loved our experience with Double D Dog Training! By the time we were done, we felt like family. I had done many hours of research on YouTube but it did not compare to having someone to walk alongside you to guide our training process. Our sweet Lucy was only 4 months old and I’m glad we called when we did. Dean was quick to respond, scheduled us within that week and we completed our sessions within the month! It was a pleasure to work with him and I would recommend his training to anyone out there looking for expertise or just hands on reassurance that you’re doing it right!

Dean Duet, you are amazing! Thank you for training Sunday and me. You were so patient with both of us. She is doing so well! The folder you provided with each session’s training was so helpful. I refer back to it often to make sure I’m doing it correctly. Thank you for the Kong recipes. They are a life saver when I crate her. I ordered several of the brain games and toys you suggested and she loves them! I will be contacting you for further training to help us be successful when we are in public! This training was well worth it!

Kudos for all Double D was able to make happen with our active, young, lab mix! This time he spent with us was quality, customized and well worth it. We’ve noticed huge changes in what we can expect from our dog as a result and highly recommend going to Double D for all your positive reinforcement dog training needs.

Dean with Double D Dog Training was great! My husband and I are first time puppy owners and Dean was able to show us how to train our puppy to do basic commands. He also answered all of our questions and even brought recommended toys/training games and showed us where to buy them. Overall the process was very smooth. We contacted Dean and then he came to our house at convenient times for us for 4 separate sessions. Dean also has an incredible memory and remembers the names of all of the dogs and dog parents that he's worked with, showing that he really cares. Would recommend!

Dean was great to work with! My dog Ranger made a huge transformation from the first to last session. Dean was also great about texting him/contacting him if questions came up after our session. Overall, this was a fun experience and very helpful with training Ranger. Would highly recommend Dean for dog training!

Dean is hands down the absolute best dog trainer around! We introduced our puppy Charlie into the family, but he was initially having a hard time adjusting to his new life. Dean stepped in and helped Charlie gain his confidence by learning new commands, tricks, and manners. He was also so helpful explaining to us what we should and should not be doing as new puppy parents. Now, Charlie is a totally different puppy thanks to Dean!! We are so grateful for you and all that you taught our boy!

We checked out a couple of different training options when we adopted a 2-year-old adult dog, Buster. He’s a sweet dog, but he can be a handful on a leash. He’s protective of us and easily distracted by squirrels and cats on the sidewalk. (Runners and cyclists, too). We really liked that Dean was able to come to our home and focus just on us and our dog. He explained everything that we would be doing before we started the sessions, and he gave us loads of tips for reinforcing the desired behavior. We learned as much as, if not more, than the dog did, and we are grateful for Dean’s expertise.

This dog was a mess, and by the picture still looks it, but after Dean's help Dasher is now on his way to being a great dog. Dean made it so easy by coming to my house and seeing what all I was doing wrong. After my first session, Dasher was no longer having accidents in his crate. This alone made my life so much better. Dean helped me understand my dog and what I needed to do to make him mind me. After only 4 sessions Dasher is now calmer and more obedient. I can see light at the end of the tunnel now. Dean also gave me some great tips to keep my dog entertained and stimulated. Dean is a wealth of knowledge and I am so thankful that I had him work with Dasher and Me! Thank you Dean!!!!

I cannot rave about Dean enough! His training has completely changed the way my dog Teddy behaves. Dean taught Teddy and I so much in just 4 training sessions. Dean listened to all my struggles/concerns with Teddy and started working with him when he was 10 months old. I worried it was too late and Teddy had already learned bad habits. However, I was so wrong. I saw a huge difference after practicing a few things Dean showed us during the first session. With positive reinforcement and consistent practice at home, Teddy was finally listening and dropping bad habits. My favorite thing is that you can see just how passionate Dean is about training dogs. He loves it and truly wants to help them do their best! Dean’s prices are unbeatable for training that is tailored to your dogs needs. It was so helpful to have him in my home to see how Teddy acts and how our home is set up. Dean was great at communicating and frequently texted to check in on Teddy. I felt so comfortable knowing I could text any time I had questions or issues. I cannot recommend Dean’s training services enough!!!

I worked with Dean using his puppy program to help set a good foundation for our then 10 week old great dane puppy. We have experience with the breed, but I could tell she was going to have a boisterous personality and I wanted to ensure that we set her up for success. With just a few sessions Heidi was a different pup and able to sit, stay, leave it, touch, shake, high five, and more on command. Dan also provided some great handouts so I can continue working with her along with some enrichment activity ideas. Highly recommend!

Dogs and dog training is obviously his passion and he has a natural gift for what he does.

Dean of Double D Dog Training replied almost as soon as I sent him a question. Dean was extremely responsive, helpful and very thorough in explaining why and what he was doing. He’s very good at training dogs (and humans). Double D trained Romeo and Juliet at the same time. One very active three year old dog and one 6 month old puppy. Dean kept them engaged and trained and taught us many different ways to keep them engaged. A good dog is a tired dog!! Thank you, Dean!! Romeo and Juliet are going to miss seeing you.

We have never used a dog trainer with any of our pets. Then we found Double D & was so glad we did!! Dean promptly responded and handled our 6-month old wire terrier Bo beautifully. He went from pure puppy to a joy to be around with this responsiveness & attentiveness. We loved the fact that Dean comes to your home & he makes it so much fun for everyone! Not only is it fun but his training saved Bo's life more than once when he got loose on the property and all we had to do was the first command he learned - Touch! Bo immediately turned around and came running from across the hillside! WOW!We highly recommend Double D.

My German Shepherd Freya recently has become very startled with people. She barks like crazy sometimes lunges and I didn’t know what to do for the longest time. I decided to hire Double d dog training and he taught me how to teach freya all the basic obedience training and how to redirect her when she barks at people. And I’ve been working with her every single day for the past two weeks such a different dog now. Huge improvement with people, her and I have a better connection, and now she knows obedience commands. Highly recommended!

Dean is our very own dog whisperer! His love of dogs is apparent, and our dogs absolutely adore him. When I contacted Dean for help with training Hazel, our 5 month old mini goldendoodle, I was a little concerned she was going to be a difficult case. After our very first session, Dean had me convinced otherwise and Hazel proved to be a model student. I love the positive reinforcement training model Dean uses to train, and Hazel responded beautifully. Dean was super flexible with scheduling our sessions and it was wonderful to have the one-on-one instruction at our home. In a time where social distancing and mask wearing pose training challenges, Dean made it work for us and I’m proud to say that Hazel successfully completed her training with flying colors. I highly recommend Double D Dog Training for anything from basic skills to advanced training.

Dean was fantastic with Griffey and the entire family. I have an 8 year old son that is recovering from being attacked by a stray dog when he was 5 years old. We thought getting a puppy and having a great trainer would help our son. On the first couple visits Dean noticed how distant our son was. However, after the first couple sessions with Dean we practiced what he taught us with the dog and we noticed our son became closer to the dog. By the third and fourth sessions with Dean our son and pup are doing well. We were so happy with Dean that we signed up for his advance training.

We just completed a 4 day dog training session with our 10 month old maltichon Maisie. It was a wonderful experience for the whole family. Dean is very patient, both with the dog and the humans. 😊. He definitely “speaks dog”. Maisie really engaged with him and was always excited when he came over. We loved having the training in our home- it made it feel very specialized to our dog and her needs.Dean uses positive reinforcement training and it works! We saw improvements in her behavior right away. She will now wait at the door before we open it to either greet a guest or go outside. She is also learning not to jump on people when she sees them. All 4 paws need to be in the floor! We continue to reinforce the commands she learned with Dean and she is doing great!I highly recommend Double D Dog Training. Dean is very professional, punctual and is a great communicator- both with dogs and their humans!

I really enjoyed working with Dean! When I first adopted my puppy Elphie she was extremely anxious and would barely come out from under my bed. I started to worry about whether or not I could help her get more comfortable. After the first training session she was already acting like a new dog. Scheduling sessions was super easy and he worked around my schedule. Not having to leave the house was also a huge plus. As of today little Elphie is playful, energetic, loving and very obedient. I can’t believe a puppy I’ve only had for three weeks is already almost completely potty trained, and responds to a wide array of commands. I would absolutely recommend Dean to anyone trying to train their dog.

We had the best time working with Dean. He included our entire family in the training and in just 4 sessions he completely changed our 5 month old Lab Bo. Dean made the training a positive experience for all of our kids, but especially our younger kids who were a little intimidated by our big puppy. Bo seems like a MUCH happier dog after our time with Dean, and we are MUCH happier dog owners. Dean helped us all get on the same page by teaching us to be consistent in using the same commands. We had NO idea how smart Bo was until we met Dean, and now we are excited to keep teaching Bo new tricks. Don't wait any longer, call Dean and get started, you wont regret it!!!

Dean came in to help my new puppy, Chief with basic obedience. It was a great experience for Chief and I. Chief now understands basic commands! During trainings, he made sure I understood everything as well. My mom was there for a couple sessions and he made sure to include her as well! Our last session, we had some fun with my little cousins while Chief still learned and had fun! Overall, great experience with Dean and his training 🙂

I had a great experience with Dean! He was very helpful in teaching me effective training methods and holding me accountable to practice them! Ultimately, it's as much about training the owners as the pets! He was great with my Golden Retriever and she LOVED him!His prices are reasonable and I highly appreciated his consultation call BEFORE paying anything. He was accommodating to my schedule and was easy to communicate with. Would definitely recommend Dean's services to anyone.

I am a first time puppy owner and was at a loss on how to control our beautiful Woodle (wolf/poodle), Luna. Dean came in and after two sessions her demeanor changed completely. We were taught how to give her the structure she needs and she responded quickly. We continue to work with her and see improvements on a daily basis. We would highly recommend Dean to anyone needing a trainer for a furry family member.

We had a good experience with Dean training our 1 year old yorkie. He was very profesional, enthusiastic and we could see he loves dogs so much. It was a four session training with the whole family and our puppy learn some commands like sit, touch, leave it, clicker. Besides he gave us printed information and links which are very useful. We definitely recommend him.

Dean and Double D Dog Training are far and away the best money you can possibly spend for not only your dog’s training needs, but your own needs as well. My wife and I felt extremely discouraged with how our dog was behaving (or not behaving as the case was), even after we had invested the time and energy into other training classes. We knew that we were part of the problem with not providing the consistent training and follow up needed. Having Dean instruct and guide us and show us just how invaluable consistency and follow through are with training was the greatest reward we could have gotten. If you have any hesitation about individualized training, you can bet that they will be gone after utilizing Dean and his program. Dean has our highest recommendation and will definitely exceed every expectation you could have.

Dean was great. we worked with him for four sessions and our puppy knows many commands. sit, stay, come, leave it, drop it. she walks on a leash beautifully. Dean helped us with house training also. I would recommend Dean to anyone wanting to work on your dogs behavior. Dean's program is easy to follow and implement. we will be doing the advanced program for sure. Dean even helped our kids learn how to work with and be better with the dog. little kids 3, 7 and 10. all our kids are much more comfortable around the dog now. thanks so much Dean.

We rescued our dog from a shelter and he was a runner. He had got out the front door a couple times and took off running through out the neighborhood. After training with Dean, Charkie is doing great! One of our kids accidentally let him out the front door recently and I was able to call him back into the house! This was a huge victory for us in addition to all the other skill we learned from Dean.

Dean helped train my rescue, a rambunctious 3 yr old blue heeler. My main goal was to be able to calmly and safely be able to walk him on a leash. In just a few lessons, with Deans expertise, we accomplished that and much more. My husband and I found Dean to be professional, calm and a lot of fun. Within 15 min of his being in our home, he quickly became my dogs favorite human!

Dean was very kind and listen to all my concerns when it came to training my dog Boy. He was always on time and Trainner Boy in a way that was easy for both me and my mother to understand. Dean helped teach Boy basic obedience (like sit, stay, touch...) and it helped built a foundation for Boys current training in becoming a service dog.

We loved working with Dean from Double D Dog Training! He was very professional, reliable and flexible. We have a 1 year old mix and 4 year old Yorkie that have developed some bad habits and refuse to listen. After just one lesson with Dean they were already showing signs of improvement. Both have adapted wonderfully to many of the techniques we learned from Dean and we are very happy with the results. We definitely recommend!

Double D was very patient with both Aggie and me. The training was excellent I thought. Aggie learned a lot of commands. And at the end of the basic course we have several things to continue to work on and improve. I can hardly wait until we are disciplined enough to move on to the advanced trading program with Double D.

I adopted my adorable doggy, Sunny, in January. Being so young he was very active and eager to learn, but I needed help! So, after some searching, I contacted Dean at Double D Dog Training, and he quickly responded. The next week Sunny and I began our basic training. Wow! What fun we have had!!! Dean is an excellent trainer with positive reinforcement all the way!! Sunny was ecstatic whenever Dean arrived, and he responded so well and was a fast learner, thanks to an excellent trainer. I appreciate the notebook with instructions I received and timely response to all my questions. I highly recommend Double D Dog Training. You will not be disappointed!

We cannot recommend Double D Dog Training enough. Why you ask?

1. DOES NOT use a shock collar.
2. Dean, the trainer, comes to your home.
3. Rewards the positive behavior, and helps you, the pup parent, to understand why your pup can be naughty and how to correct that behavior in a very positive way.
4. Very positive reviews.
5. Dean’s just an all around nice guy who genuinely wants your pup to be the best they can be.

After adopting a dog recently, we quickly realized he needed more training than what we could provide to him ourselves. After doing some research, we decided to choose Double D Dog Training. The 4-week Basic Obedience course is packed with training and information. Any question we had, he answered. Dean’s insight and knowledge, as well as his training skills, are top notch.

Very highly recommend Double D Dog Training!

We are first time puppy 🐶 owners, so Dean walked into an absolutely clueless situation. His method of training is nothing short of amazing; positive reinforcement DOES work! My pup is only 10 weeks old and is almost 100% potty trained and obeys all commands we have learned. He also sleeps in his kennel at night without whining!!! We did practice, as Dean suggested. So if you’re ready to meet halfway w the work, you’ll be amazed at the result!!

I’ve met my share of dog trainers. Double D could give lessons to other trainers! Patient and knowledgeable without the ego trip.
My 11 week old Shih Tzu, Moose, is on his way to being a great service dog. Dean is kind and loving and it shows in his attitude. Thank you for helping us get through puppy hood!🤗🐶

Dean of Double D Dog Training was professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant to work with. The fact that he comes to your home for one-on-one training is an added bonus. Our rescue dog, Ailee, literally blossomed with his guidance! We are so grateful that Dean was recommended to us - and we now highly recommend Double D!!!

Dean Duet, you are amazing! Thank you for training Sunday and me. You were so patient with both of us. She is doing so well! The folder you provided with each session’s training was so helpful. I refer back to it often to make sure I’m doing it correctly. Thank you for the Kong recipes. They are a life saver when I crate her. I ordered several of the brain games and toys you suggested and she loves them! I will be contacting you for further training to help us be successful when we are in public! This training was well worth it!

Kudos for all Double D was able to make happen with our active, young, lab mix! This time he spent with us was quality, customized and well worth it. We’ve noticed huge changes in what we can expect from our dog as a result and highly recommend going to Double D for all your positive reinforcement dog training needs.

Dean is hands down the absolute best dog trainer around! We introduced our puppy Charlie into the family, but he was initially having a hard time adjusting to his new life. Dean stepped in and helped Charlie gain his confidence by learning new commands, tricks, and manners. He was also so helpful explaining to us what we should and should not be doing as new puppy parents. Now, Charlie is a totally different puppy thanks to Dean!! We are so grateful for you and all that you taught our boy!

We checked out a couple of different training options when we adopted a 2-year-old adult dog, Buster. He’s a sweet dog, but he can be a handful on a leash. He’s protective of us and easily distracted by squirrels and cats on the sidewalk. (Runners and cyclists, too). We really liked that Dean was able to come to our home and focus just on us and our dog. He explained everything that we would be doing before we started the sessions, and he gave us loads of tips for reinforcing the desired behavior. We learned as much as, if not more, than the dog did, and we are grateful for Dean’s expertise.

What can I say, Dean was amazing! We adopted our Blue Heeler puppy, Charlotte and our son and daughter-in-law adopted her brother, Goose. We have an older Blue Heeler mix, Molly Mae, who is very well trained and we were concerned the babies would teach her bad habits! We were excited to have the opportunity to do an in-home dog training during the pandemic to stay safe. Dean was great with my fiancé, Adolph, myself, and my 8-year-old daughter, Ali, teaching all of us what we were doing right or wrong and how we could fix the behaviors we didn’t like. He was also very flexible to our schedules which really helped! Charlotte is now just as obedient as Molly Mae! It’s very important to practice everything he teaches you even after the training is done. But I promise it is worth the investment. Here’s a picture of both Goose and Charlotte graduating puppy school!

I worked with Dean using his puppy program to help set a good foundation for our then 10 week old great dane puppy. We have experience with the breed, but I could tell she was going to have a boisterous personality and I wanted to ensure that we set her up for success. With just a few sessions Heidi was a different pup and able to sit, stay, leave it, touch, shake, high five, and more on command. Dan also provided some great handouts so I can continue working with her along with some enrichment activity ideas. Highly recommend!

Dean is an exceptional trainer. We were very happy with the work he did with us and our new Australian Labradoodle puppy Charlie. Dean was very patient and explained each step of his well thought out and designed training program. We highly recommend Dean. Dogs and dog training is obviously his passion and he has a natural gift for what he does.

Dean of Double D Dog Training replied almost as soon as I sent him a question. Dean was extremely responsive, helpful and very thorough in explaining why and what he was doing. He’s very good at training dogs (and humans). Double D trained Romeo and Juliet at the same time. One very active three year old dog and one 6 month old puppy. Dean kept them engaged and trained and taught us many different ways to keep them engaged. A good dog is a tired dog!! Thank you, Dean!! Romeo and Juliet are going to miss seeing you!!

Dexter looked forward to his training. Dean had so much helpful information. Dean taught Dex all his basic commands plus some advanced commands that Dex caught on to pretty quick.
Dexter’s looking forward to the next phase of his advanced training.
Thank you Dean

Dean is our very own dog whisperer! His love of dogs is apparent, and our dogs absolutely adore him. When I contacted Dean for help with training Hazel, our 5 month old mini goldendoodle, I was a little concerned she was going to be a difficult case. After our very first session, Dean had me convinced otherwise and Hazel proved to be a model student. I love the positive reinforcement training model Dean uses to train, and Hazel responded beautifully. Dean was super flexible with scheduling our sessions and it was wonderful to have the one-on-one instruction at our home. In a time where social distancing and mask wearing pose training challenges, Dean made it work for us and I’m proud to say that Hazel successfully completed her training with flying colors. I highly recommend Double D Dog Training for anything from basic skills to advanced training.

His prices are reasonable and I highly appreciated his consultation call BEFORE paying anything. He was accommodating to my schedule and was easy to communicate with. Would definitely recommend Dean's services to anyone.

Dean did an amazing job with Pretzel, a 3 month golden doodle and included our 3 year old grandson in the classes. This was much appreciated and was successful in building a relationship between the two. Dean made sure that not only my husband who did the first 3 of the 4 classes, but that I understood everything that was covered by providing a quick tutorial on everything that was covered in the classes. I would highly recommend Dean if you are looking for someone who is committed to not only working with the puppy/dog, but with everyone involved in the puppy/dogs daily live. Dean is the trainer for you.

Dean is a great dog trainer. He very quickly established a trusting relationship with our very jittery, probably abused rescue dog. Tricks and training techniques were taught to the dog and his very unqualified dog parents. Dean is also very personable, educated, punctual and generous. He even provides backup written material to reinforce and remind us of the proper way to deal with Cash. I would highly recommend Dean to train your dog!!

We had a great time working with Dean! He came out to my house to work with my little Chi Chi Nugget! Brought multiple methods of training and provided extra practice ideas to help as Nugget progresses. Within just 4 sessions we saw so much improvement! He left us with so many tips and tricks to help continue and enforce what Nugget has learned. Overall great experience!

Nugget says thanks for all the treats and teaching her new tricks!

I want to start off by saying that at first I was a little skeptical with the idea of a dog trainer but Dean was absolutely amazing when it came to helping my pup Milo get his confidence up and helped me communicate better with Milo. Dean was very nice, professional , eager and him and Milo were best buds by the last training class. Even two weeks later , Milo has not gotten off track with his training and I am so proud of him and thankful to Dean for all of the training and working with me. I HIGHLY recommend Dean to be your next trainer, you will not regret it.

It was a four session training with the whole family and our puppy learn some commands like sit, touch, leave it, clicker. Besides he gave us printed information and links which are very useful. We definitely recommend him.

Dean and Double D Dog Training are far and away the best money you can possibly spend for not only your dog’s training needs, but your own needs as well. My wife and I felt extremely discouraged with how our dog was behaving (or not behaving as the case was), even after we had invested the time and energy into other training classes. We knew that we were part of the problem with not providing the consistent training and follow up needed. Having Dean instruct and guide us and show us just how invaluable consistency and follow through are with training was the greatest reward we could have gotten. If you have any hesitation about individualized training, you can bet that they will be gone after utilizing Dean and his program. Dean has our highest recommendation and will definitely exceed every expectation you could have.

Dean was great. we worked with him for four sessions and our puppy knows many commands. sit, stay, come, leave it, drop it. she walks on a leash beautifully. Dean helped us with house training also. I would recommend Dean to anyone wanting to work on your dogs behavior. Dean's program is easy to follow and implement. we will be doing the advanced program for sure. Dean even helped our kids learn how to work with and be better with the dog. little kids 3, 7 and 10. all our kids are much more comfortable around the dog now. thanks so much Dean.

We had a rather large dog that was not getting the most basic command of "come". She is one of those dogs that are fearfully afraid of thunder, and brought that fear to vet visits. We are on 5 acres, and if she saw me with a leash, she was gone. My son could always eventually wrangle her, but it was an immense chore. The worst was when she slipped her collar at Herbst. It took three physician's assistants and myself to catch her (she took off to that vacant field across the street). That was the final straw. I somehow found Dean, who came twice a week, and oh-so-slowly, little by little, got her to his van, then got her to put a paw on the opening, then up in the van. I told him at the beginning he'll never do it. I was wrong. Now, when I grab the leash, she runs to the back of my SUV, and waits for me to open the hatch, and then jumps in. Amazing. Dean was patient, kind, and I felt he did the job he came to do in a timely and efficient manner. I cannot recommend him enough.

Dean did a great job training my yorkie, Marley! Some of the things he worked on with her were loose leash walking, clicker training when she was barking in the back yard and waiting at her food bowl. She is so much better behaved now after completing her Double D basic obedience training and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of dog training!!

My family needed some help with our pitbull puppy. We had trained her basic commands but were in need of help with her socializing, timidness and fighting with our other dog. Dean came to our house to see how she behaves and what we were dealing with. In the four sessions we saw marked improvement and he gave us skills to turn a good dog into a great dog! Dean loves animals and loves to teach kids as well as us adults. We were so incredibly happy to have Dean work with us I would recommend him to anyone!

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!
