The Dog of your Dreams!

I'll Help you Transform Your Bossy, Anxious, Reactive Dog

I'll help you transform your anxious, disobedient, reactive dog into a confident, well-mannered, and responsive pet and best friend that willingly gives you their best behavior all the time, without you ever you having to ask for it.

A Little About Me...

I'm Dave the Dog Coach, a professional dog trainer and behavioral specialist. I approach "dog training" from a completely different perspective than other dog trainers, because I don't believe it's about demanding obedience but about building relationship. I've taken everything I’ve learned about building transformative relationships with dogs and I want to share it with you to help you get the confident, well-mannered, joyful and responsive, dog of your dreams.

I teach dog owners how to get the best out of their dogs by earning love, trust, and respect—not by using fear, pain, or intimidation tactics—or by bribing with food.

It's Not About Obedience...

It's actually about building an awesome relationship, letting your dog know that you're their guy (or gal), you've got their back, you're there for them, and that you're always coming back. As your dog begins to recognize that you're the one providing them with all the good things in life and protecting them from danger, they'll start looking to you, for you, and at you for guidance and direction. And as you learn to effectively communicate your expectations, you'll be building the kind of relationship that gets you the absolute best of your dog's breed, energy, and character.

Become the strong confident leader that your dog needs you to be... they'll learn to look to you, for you, at you for guidance & direction.

What People Say About Me

Ken & Ellen

We witnessed a remarkable transformation in Benji's behavior. He stopped reacting aggressively towards other dogs and people, just as Dave had predicted. It was a relief to see Benji becoming more calm and composed, allowing us to walk him without any anxiety or embarrassment. This program has made a significant impact on our lives, and we are grateful for Dave's expertise in helping us overcome.


Dave was an absolute lifesaver when it came to my two bernadoodles that I had purchased during the Covid-19 pandemic. Due to the lockdown restrictions and limited social interactions, my dogs hadn't been properly socialized and were displaying signs of anxiety and fear towards other dogs and people. However, Dave stepped in and patiently worked with us to help them overcome their fears and learn how to interact positively with others. His expertise and dedication were evident as he taught us how to introduce them to new experiences, gradually increasing their exposure and building their confidence. Thanks to Dave's assistance, my bernadoodles have made significant progress in their socialization, and I am grateful for his guidance and support throughout the process.

Dennis & Charlie

Dave was a great help in teaching me how to train Charlie, my 4-year-old boxer who struggled with anxiety and reactivity. His expertise and patience were invaluable as we worked together to address Charlie's behavioral issues. I am grateful to Dave for his dedication and knowledge, as he truly transformed Charlie's life for the better.

Let your dog know the things you like, love, and want more of and the things you don't, and won't and can't... and they'll give you any behavior that you want!
