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.

I am the Volunteer Coordinator for the Dog Behavioral and Socialization Team for the Seattle Humane Society. John is one of our most coveted volunteers. He works with our more behaviorally challenged dogs. He has excellent handling skills and the dogs respond positively to his interaction with them. He reads body language well and always has the dogs safety as a priority. I trust his judgment for making appropriate decisions for the dog. He is dedicated to helping them be more adoptable. He is a blessing to our program.

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.

John was amazing not only watching poe, giving her long walks, and taking tons of great pictures, but also with communication and his flexibility of coming over and walking her even though I was gonna be home soon after but he walked her so I wouldn’t have to.
