My name is Dean Duet, also known as Double D, or as my friends like to call me, “Dog Dude.”
After taking my Bichon, Louie to training classes 16 years ago, I found the passion and decided to pursue a career as a Professional Dog Trainer after leaving my corporate IT sales job 8 years ago.
I enjoy working with families to teach valuable training methods and techniques to help their dog become a well-behaved, well-mannered member of the family. Whether it’s a rescue from the shelter, or a pure-bred dog from a breeder, Double D Dog Training is here to help!
My clients are always amazed at how animals naturally gravitate to me. Having been on a spiritual path for many years, I have learned and incorporated many lessons in my work with dogs. I believe my strength as a dog trainer is my connection to the animals through kindness and compassion.
On any given day, you can find me walking a dog, at the dog park, volunteering at a local rescue or helping a neighbor with their dog. The consummate “Dog Dude”.
While Louie is no longer with us, he is still the heart and soul of Double D Dog Training! Woof Woof!
I am a CPDT-KA, Certified Professional Dog Trainer through the Council of Certified Professional Dog Trainers with 7+ years of experience and over 8000 hours training dogs.
The CCPDT has high standards of requiring a minimum 300 hours of dog training experience to sit for the exam along with references, and passing a rigorous 4 hour certification exam covering numerous areas including dog training, equipment, animal husbandry, ethology and learning theory.
In addition, I have completed the Karen Pryor Foundation and Susan Smith Learning Theory dog training courses.
I am also a Professional Member of the APDT and a supporting member of the Pet Guild. I have spent many years volunteering at shelters, assisting rescues with fundraising events, doing transports, etc.
Beyond my certifications, I’ve worked as a dog groomer for two years, was Vice-President on the board of Spay-Neuter Animal Wellness Clinic (SNAP), and am Pet First Aid and CPR Certified.
