DogSmart is a great company and we highly recommend their dog training services. John, the owner has done an amazing job of training our puppy and us humans ! Can wait to see what else we can learn!
John is amazing with our pup and helped us train him in a very fun, positive way. The puppy of course loves him! All of John’s training tips and advice have been easy to follow and are working out great. I think even a little bit of training and help that your pup might get with John will go a long way!
John at DogSmart Seattle is a master dog trainer and communicator. He helped me sort out complex issues with my pooch that resulted in a positive resolution for everyone – and everydog! – involved. John is a great listener and is totally trustworthy. Training dogs in their homes in their familiar surroundings makes perfect sense; you get the best results this way. I highly recommend John for you and your precious pooch.
Our family is very grateful to John for his coaching. Being first time dog owners and getting a young puppy, we were a bit overwhelmed with the amount of work that it added to our lives. John helped us train our puppy obedience skills, helped us understand dog’s behavior, answered countless questions about feeding, training, exercising, and taking care of the dog, helped our two cats make peace with the dog. John gave us knowledge and piece of mind to get things under control and actually enjoy our puppy. Our puppy Bella adored John, was super happy to see and learn from him and amazingly was on her best behavior for 2-3 days after each lesson. John is a very talented dog trainer and great communicator for dogs and humans
John was amazing with our two dogs. We rescued a dog from Taiwan and she was terrified of men, new people and other dogs. We did ONE training session and within a week or two all of the issues we had were either gone or greatly reduced!!
Love this company! John is very caring and compassionate. Very responsive and insightful in his techniques. You will not be disappointed.
John has been working with our dog Willy( Belgian Melanois/ husky/ other shepherd mix) for more than a year now, initially it was just walks( John used to do some basic training then too) and now he does more training. Willy is a rescue dog that we got when he was a year old. He is super friendly with people, but has anxiety He is dog reactive and has high prey drive, is very strong ( 70 lbs) and can be quite difficult to handle when triggered. John has always handled him extremely well. He is very professional and can be trusted with your pet. He gives detailed reports on every day’s training. We started training Willy at Ahimsa( Seattle) and John also follows similar positive reinforcement methods( BAT) and modifies his training methods as needed. . He does not just train Willy but showers him with love and Willy can’t wait to jump into his jeep everytime John comes home.! We love working with John!
John’s classes has helped tremendously. We and our little pup has learned so much. We will continue with more lessons here and there as our little pup grows.
John and his training are a 6/5 stars. John works with you and your pup to fit your needs for training. John’s calm and cool approach to dog training was just what I needed as I embarked on puppy training during a pandemic! There are so many options out there but nobody will bring you the convenience of training in your own home or at nearby parks as John. He gives you the tools to put in the work and no quick fix is promised, like so many other training options out there. He reiterates the importance of consistency and building respect with you and your pup.
John was amazing with our teenage dog. He was always prompt and professional. He was very responsive to our individual needs and gave us exercises to practice that were reasonable and effective. John was always accessible for urgent issues through email and text. Our dog had behavioral challenges and John was creative and competent. I would highly recommend John and Dogsmart. John really went above and beyond for us!
