I can't say enough about the dog board and train program I recently experienced. From the moment they came to pick up my beloved canine companion, I knew I had made the right choice. The trainers were true professionals. They took the time to understand my dog's unique needs and personality. Their experience and knowledge were evident in every interaction. They used positive reinforcement techniques and were patient and compassionate throughout the training process.
One of the most significant benefits of the program was the regular updates they provided. I received video and photo updates daily which eased my anxiety about being separated from my pet. They were also very responsive whenever I reached out with questions. This transparent communication was a reassuring touch.
After a few weeks in the program, I was amazed at the transformation in my dog's behavior. He now listens to commands, walks on a leash without pulling, and is much more social with other dogs and people. It's clear that the trainers instilled confidence and obedience in him, while maintaining his unique personality.
I couldn't be happier with the results of the board and train program. It was worth every penny and more. My dog is now a happier, more well-adjusted, and better-behaved pet, and I credit this program and the fantastic team behind it. If you're looking to improve your dog's behavior and build a stronger bond with your furry friend, I wholeheartedly recommend this program. It's a game-changer for both dogs and their owners.

Maria and Dave are AWESOME! My year and a half old Corgi, Nugget, is the most stubborn boy. He's a smaller dog, but he's very smart and VERY strong. I reached out to Disciplined Dog Trainer back in February because he started showing leash reactivity and was leash pulling uncontrollably. I was working with another trainer at the time too, but the behavior was actually progressively getting worse, to the point where I started dreading walks and leaving my apartment with Nugget. I started taking the stairs to get outside and back in, just to avoid walking past other dogs and people in the elevator and lobby.
Maria and Dave came to my apartment for a consult the day that i reached out to them. They were immediately ready to help me and Nugget. Nugget spent only two weeks with Maria and Dave and came back a brand new Corgi! I was a little apprehensive about using a prong collar with Nugget, but Dave showed me how to use this training resource correctly and responsibly to make sure it stays a safe and effective communication tool for Nugget. And i must say, it's truly night and day!! He no longer reacts to dogs and people walking by. He walks right beside me, and even looks to me for direction! I also want to mention that he isn't afraid of the prong collar, and actually reacts positively when i put it on because as Dave says, "he knows it's time to work".
In the past few weeks though, he's started reverting back to old behavior. Admittedly, all due to my own fault, since i haven't been consistent and practicing everything we've learned with Nugget on the daily. Maria and Dave came over yesterday and in just one hour, helped me re-established control and discipline again. Corgis are incredibly smart and stubborn dogs, and over time i allowed him to push the boundaries I had set in place. Though i'll need to keep working hard with Nugget to prevent this from happening again, it's just so reassuring to know that Maria and Dave are only a call/text away if we do start falling back into old patterns.
Maria and Dave reach out to me on a weekly basis to get updates on Nugget. I send them videos of our walks and outings, and Dave replies almost instantly with questions and feedback to help us maintain and improve on all the hard work that Nugget's been putting in. Not many trainers are willing or are easily available to converse with their clients on a daily basis, but Dave and Maria are always ready to chat whenever i need some quick tips or guidance. I'm so happy with the training results i've seen, and they've helped me understand that a happy dog is a disciplined dog :)

I had an outstanding experience with disciplined dog trainer! They are a true expert in their field. Their patience and dedication to helping our dog overcome behavioral challenges were remarkable. Thanks to their guidance, my Hudson is now well-behaved and a joy to be around. I wholeheartedly recommend disciplined dog trainer to anyone seeking effective and compassionate dog training.
Maria and Dave are attentive, they are always in contact, they explain the entire training process and teach us how to continue training at home. They are always open to answering questions

I HIGHLY recommend Disciplined Dog Trainer! My dog is extremely high energy and a lot to deal with but after roughly two weeks of training with David & Maria, she came back home and the change with instantly noticed. Since the training I have gotten so many compliments on the change of behavior my dog exhibits now. Everyone from close friends to even her veterinarian have praised my dog’s change.
What I loved most about Discipline Dog Trainer was the updates I received while she was in training and how when she was dropped off back home, David stayed to guide me on the training techniques and educated me on the do’s and dont’s. It’s been roughly a year since her training and they have checked up on my dog quite a few times through out the year. You can really tell they are passionate and genuinely care about their work and the dogs they train. This is an investment that truly pays off. I can not thank them enough for such a great, and exceptional service!

David and Maria have done absolute wonders for our dog Lemon. We were really struggling with Lemon's high reactivity and high energy which resulted in not so great behaviors around other dogs and making a mess of our home. The 3 week program was truly life changing. Ever since, Lemon has been our absolute dream dog while keeping all of her amazing personality we always loved. With the continued help from the team, she continues to get better and better and David and Maria continually provide amazing guidance on how to help manage her behavior. Recommend to everyone who needs help with their dog!

The Disciplined Dog Trainer is the absolute best! Their training strategies work and they taught me so much about my dog. They are trustworthy, friendly and knowledgeable. They treat your dog as if it were their own - with lots of care while at the same time correcting bad behavior and habits. They are the only team I trust with my dog ❤️

david and maria are PHENOMENAL!!! i would recommend them to anyone and everyone who has a dog whether your dog has behavior problems or not. unfortunately our dog(chief) bit me in the face because he wanted attention from my boyfriend and i intervened thinking he wanted to play with both of us when he wanted only something from my boyfriend which david had taught me he was resource guarding my boyfriend. before training chief was on our bed on our couch was always following us around the house and would whine and paw us for whatever he wanted. at the time he bit me he was on our bed and pawing my boyfriend and i intervened and scared him which led him to biting me in the face. david and maria were outstanding with responding immediately to us. we were in the hospital asking what should we do and they responded immediately and chief was picked up right away for training. they were thorough, determined and honest. from the moment chief was picked up to when he got dropped off even after being dropped off they stayed in contact with us. they sent videos and pictures and even called us on the phone to updated us on his progress. when chief came home he was a completely different dog he was obedient he followed commands and respected me not just my boyfriend. with all of this being said it’s on YOU the owner to follow through with the training so they don’t lose what they learned in training. i recommend disciplined dog trainer to anyone with a big or small dog an aggressive or non aggressive dog any dog you want to respect and listen to you go to disciplined dog trainer!
