Testimonials

He is just amazing!! I have a 2 yr old husky that does not listen at all! Super high energy and he was able to manage all that in an hour! I highly recommend him for any issues with dogs! Thank you again! - Camila Espinosa, September 22nd, 2018


Dans knowledge with dogs is absolutely impeccable. Within just a few minutes in meeting a dog he gains full control. It’s extremely impressive. I’d definitely recommend, he’s the dog ghandi! - Emma Reed, September 15th, 2018


We love Dan's work! Our girl is very social selective and he has helped her get over many fears. She has gone from quaking and shaking with fear aggression to being able to play with a few dogs he selects and that is in a small amount of time. We cannot wait to see what working with him shows for the future but we know it is bright. - Jordan Mason, May 9th, 2016 

Dan was very insightful, and helped me see what the issue is with my dog. He also gave wonderful advice, and I like his style of training. He gives great corrections, and makes sure to give positive reinforcement when deserved. I feel a lot more confident about helping my dogs now. He was also a wonderful gentleman for bagging my dogs �. I also really appreciate that I didn't feel like I was getting talked down to because I didn't understand what my dogs issue was. Thank you Dan! - Megan Corvette Viveros, February 25th, 2017

Dan is an excellent trainer! I have a dog that needed socialization. The first time Dan had him he was with other dogs and not attacking them. Dan spent only a few sessions and my dog can now be with other dogs. Dallas and Dan are the best of friends! Now I have a new puppy and have asked Dan to work with him. In just 1 session Dan has my puppy listening and following directions. Dan is a wonderful knowledgeable trainer. His love and dedication shows each time he works with my dog. I am so lucky to have Dan work with my pets. I couldn't ask for a better trainer! - Stacee Smith-Marshal, September 10th, 2018


Dan is fantastic! He is super knowledgeable and passionate about what he does. His patience and calm demeanor have been so good for our dog, Tuli, and for us! We've already seen a ton of progress in the short time we've been working with him and we feel so much more confident because of his advice and leadership. We would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for an outstanding dog trainer! - Linus Garrett, July 16th, 2016

Dan has such a calm demeanor and that really comes into play with working with some of these excitable dogs. He worked for months with one of the Idaho Saint Bernard Rescue Saints that was aggressive with people and now that dog is adopted and doing amazing! I would recommend Dan, hands down! - Jayme Jones, March 23rd, 2016

I highly recommend Dan, he gave me confidence on the first visit we had with him. Now my dog can learn from me the right way and also have confidence in himself. He taught us so much in the first visit, that I feel like we might not even have to have a home visit from him again, because he is that good. A month ago, my dog had to ware a muzzle around our other two dog's, now from yesterday he isn't waring a muzzle around them and can be in the same area with them with out a MUZZLE. No muzzle! I feel so proud and relieved because of Dan. - Jessica Derr May 18th, 2016

Dan has been such a huge help for us with two dogs. He has really reduced the stress level with his calming approach. Don’t think we would have had even a fraction of the success we have had without him giving us the time he did. Anyone that can get him should absolutely take advantage of his talents. Good job Dan. Benny and Izzy and all of us wish you the best. -  Mitch Cohen, August 27th, 2018


Can't say enough good things about Dan! He is extremely helpful as well as knowledgeable! He is very patient with your pup as well as all the questions :) Thanks Dan for helping me out!! - Josie Grossi, September 23rd, 2016

We adopted Coal a couple years ago. Never have I met a dog so incredibly kennel stressed and broken. Dan was an essential player during our one on one meet and greet but also when we introduced the whole pack. He taught me so much about dog behavior and how to be the pack leader, all in a very short amount of time. His knowledge base and caring touch goes a very long way. If you need a guy, Dan is it! - Sarah Smith, September 13th, 2018

When Dan showed up at our house he immeadiately conveyed confidence and our dog paid very close attention. Mobley knew Dan was in charge and followed his commands with very few corrrctions. Dan gave my husband and I pointers to help correct Mobley's mouthing and giving up toys. When Mobley sees Dan at Emerald kennels, he is happy to be there because he knows his friend is there. - Kristin Graves, January 2nd, 2016

Dan is an amazing soul who has a genuine love for all dogs. He is kind, and calm, and willing to put in 110%. If you are looking for someone to help you understand your dog's behavior(s) and help you work through them, this is your guy. - Natalie Wilson, October 12th, 2015

Dan is absolutely dedicated to improving the lives of all types of pups. He's very passionate about understanding dogs and it comes across in everything he does. - Kate Drehobl, September 1st, 2015


Dan has NOT the attitude to ever give up on a dog. There are NO lost causes! - Carolyn Theresa, August 30th, 2015
