Professional dog training provides a host of benefits that foster a harmonious relationship between the dog and its owner. The most immediate advantage is the improvement in a dog’s behavior. Through systematic, consistent training, a dog can learn and understand basic commands, etiquette, and appropriate behavior, significantly reducing the likelihood of unwanted actions such as destructive chewing or excessive barking.

Moreover, professional dog training facilitates communication between the dog and its owner. It allows owners to understand their dog’s needs better, and similarly, the dog learns how to understand and respond to their owner’s commands. This mutual understanding strengthens the bond between the dog and its owner, leading to a more fulfilling and enjoyable companionship. In the long run, professional dog training can also enhance the dog’s mental stimulation, and provide a sense of structure and routine, contributing to a happier and healthier pet.

Just as every human individual is unique, so is every breed of dog, each with its distinctive traits, behaviors, and needs. Recognizing this, we tailor our training programs to fit each dog breed perfectly. We acknowledge that a one-size-fits-all approach is not effective in dog training. Hence, our professional dog trainers are adept at understanding the specific characteristics of different breeds, allowing them to customize the training methods and techniques that best suit your dog. This personalized approach not only ensures the effectiveness of the training but also makes the learning process enjoyable and stress-free for your pet. Whether you have an energetic Labrador Retriever, a stubborn Bulldog, or a sensitive Border Collie, we have the skills and experience to provide customized training that optimizes their learning and enhances their overall well-being.

I want to thank John Soares and his staff, for their remarkable training with our 5 year old German Shepherd, Duke. Prior to training with John Soares, my wife found Duke to be unmanageable when walking Duke outside. Duke became Dog Aggressive. Duke's tugging and barking had to be addressed.Having trained with John Soares years ago with success, I had total confidence, John and his excellent experienced staff would correct Dukes behavior. After John evaluated Dukes behavior, John explained to my wife and I in great detail, why Duke behaved in this manner. John designed a custom training plan to aid in Dukes training. Understand, No two dogs are alike.With Johns advice, my wife and I scheduled Duke for a Board and Stay Training. On a frequent basis during Dukes stay, John sent use training videos of Dukes improvement. John always maintain open lines of communication.After completing Dukes stay, John did a series of one on one training sessions with Duke, both my wife and I. The results were positive and enlightening.Both my wife and I applaud John Soares and his excellent and experience training staff with working with Duke. Having worked as a volunteer in a local kennel, I seen to many dogs surrendered for this type of behavior. I knew if anyone could correct this behavior, John Soares could.There are dog trainers and then there is John Soares. The teacher of trainers. Johns knowledge and experience with canines must be recognized as Outstanding. John has a God given Gift with training and communicating with Mans Best Friend.Both my wife and I highly recommend John Soares and no other.John with out doubt is a FIVE STAR TRAINER an a Great Guy!!!

Our 1 year old GSD just finished his board and train. We cannot say enough great things about John and his training. I mean just look at his history! You can immediately tell his passion for this is genuine. We cannot recommend him enough. Our Echo had a tough life before us. We all believe he was not dumped, but he was an escape artist and they forgot to microchip him on time. With that, he did not know proper manners. After the shelter found him as a stray, he was adopted and then surrendered THREE times by THREE different families. All because he lacked obedience, which was never his fault. John has not only trained Echo, but also trains us so that we are setting him up for continued success. We will definitely be continuing training with him. Thank you John and your team for taking great care of our boy.

Highly recommend!!! John is amazing at training. He and the entire staff have gone above and beyond to ensure our dog was properly trained. He provided clear instructions and responded promptly to any of our questions. We are forever grateful to John and his team. Our dog is so much better at walking— no more pulling me or dragging me across neighbors lawns or chasing squirrels!!! . Again I highly recommend this place for any dog training needs. You will not be disappointed! Thank you John!

We highly recommend John as a trainer! After interviewing many trainers in for our 18-month old Rottweiler, and after he evaluated our dog, we though that John was the best at setting our expectations for her training, putting in practical terms what goals we could achieve and how we would get there. Our dog spent 5 weeks with John and we are really happy with her training. John not only trained our dog but the 4 post-board training sessions with us and our dog, trained us how to handle her as well. We found John to be really observant correcting our body language and verbal cues, explaining to us what our dog’s perspective is. This helped us to adjust our routines with her at home and proof his training. We look forward to her next training session with him as we make progress together!
