We hired Dean to help us train our 13 month old energetic, high spirited Keeshond. We chose the advanced training course since Gandy knew the basic commands and mainly needed help socializing around other dogs and people.I was impressed how quickly Gandy responded to Dean and it was obvious that Dean has a genuine love and compassion for dogs. Dean has a very calm yet enthusiastic and confident manner. His training methods are based on positive rewards for good behavior while using redirection to work towards eliminating unwanted behaviors. His methods were never punitive and Gandy was comfortable with him immediately as were we.Dean was excellent about answering our questions, giving tips and information and teaching us his methods to continue the training after the sessions ended. He checked in on us to see how we were doing in between sessions and we are still in touch with him even though our training has ended. He gave two tips that were invaluable and I will always use going forward. First, the importance of having Gandy focus on us, especially when distractions are present and how to achieve this. The second was to make sure he’s exercised at home to expend energy before ever leaving the house.I would definitely recommend Dean and would not hesitate to take further sessions with him in the future if we need additional help. He is not only our trainer but friend as well.

Dean was incredible! He was extremely knowledgeable, well resourced, and bonded so well with our pup! Dean gave us the confidence and tools to feel more at ease with our puppies behavior and how we can learn as a family to foster good habits! We highly recommend his training services and the investment dog parents make to ensure a healthy and confident dog/owner relationship!!

We hired Dean to work with us and our new ~4 month old large breed puppy. We knew he would be a handful without some experienced training for him (and us) and Dean delivered. We are incredibly happy with the results, especially in such a short period and so few training sessions. If you want to see results quickly and have a better owner/pet relationship, Dean is the trainer you need. He also offered a ton of useful tips for continued training, toys, etc.Simply put, Dean's training was worth every penny. The in-home training was super convenient as well and Dean was very easy and flexible to work with. Thank you!

Double D Dog Training has been a lifesaver for me and my very high spirited dog Maizee. With the training that Dean provided, Maizee and I were able to communicate, connect and enjoy each other so much more. Dean is truly a "dog whisperer". Maizee is so much calmer now that she has learned that speech has meaning. Thank you Dean for making our lives better.

Dean was great to work with in training our Lab/Boxer/Pit Mix. He provided resources and encouraged us to stretch ourselves and Maggie. He was great about confirming appointments and preparations for training. Maggie really liked the “Treat Man”!

Dean really helped us make tremendous progress with our rescue pup in only one month of lessons. I greatly appreciated the way Dean tailored the training to address the specific needs of our dog. And Dean's caring and interest in our dog shown through from the very first lesson. We'll certainly engage Double D for our future dog training needs.

We had the pleasure of working with Dean at Double D Dog Training for our two dogs, and I can't recommend him enough! From the very beginning, Dean demonstrated a level of expertise and patience that was truly remarkable.Dean's approach to dog training is both effective and humane. He understands that each dog is unique and tailors his training methods to suit their individual needs. His patience with our dogs was admirable, especially considering their different personalities and learning speeds.One of the things that impressed us most about Dean was his ability to not only train our dogs but also educate us as owners. He provided us with invaluable insights and techniques to continue our dogs' training at home, which has been crucial in maintaining the progress made during the sessions.Our dogs have shown significant improvement in obedience and behavior since we started with Double D Dog Training. It's clear that Dean is passionate about his work and genuinely cares about the well-being and development of the dogs he trains.

Dean came in ready to help us have a better experience with our year old pup. Count was mischievous, unresponsive to commands, and frustrating to say the least. Dean understood that not only Count but his owners needed guidance. After initial classes, our whole household is a more positive place. While not perfect, Count understands boundaries and expectations, but most importantly, he understands how to show his love and affection. And we now understand how much Count needs love, exercise, and consistency. Thank you Dean!

I'd highly recommend working with Dean. His passion for dogs and upbeat nature makes class engaging and enjoyable. He has a tremendous depth of knowledge with extensive experience in a wide range of training. He teaches so much more than just sit and stay and educates owners about dogs and proper dog ownership.Dean helped my dog Zara from the early puppy stages, and had 4 class sessions with her, which was enough to help with basic commands.He truly cares about his furry clients and texts you throughout the week to check on them. It was a pleasure to work with him.Thank you Dean!

Dean was amazing. At the first session I was stressed because I didn’t know what or how to train our little gunner. By the first session gunner knew how to sit, look at me, and touch and every session with Dean, Gunner became a fast learner. Very grateful for Dean helping us train our puppy!

Dean was great! I absolutely enjoyed the personal touch he brings to the training. Our puppy Tex has significantly progressed from the first training session to graduation. It was great having Dean available by phone to help us with any questions that came up during the training process. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I have three dogs who just graduated from Double D Dog Training. We had a great experience and Dean is so easy to work with. One of my pups, Biscuit, is skittish around people and keeps his distance. By the end of our 4 sessions, Dean had Biscuit taking treats out of his hand and following commands. It was an amazing sight to see! I’m thrilled with the progress of all three dogs and I’m so thankful for Double D!

I personally recommend Double D Dog Training and I am looking forward to advanced training in the next few months. I can, without reservation give Double D high marks through and through.Our encounter with Dean began exactly 2 weeks after we were blessed with Hamish, the day after Thanksgiving. We were living a fairly calm lifestyle, after the 2 seven month old kittens we adopted were finally settling in with us and our lovely 15 year old white Labrador. Hamish, an adorable Chocolate Labrador puppy had just turned 8wks old...high energy... small, sharp teeth... and an even smaller bladder. What were we thinking???Now, Hamish is a rock star in every sense of the word. He's smart, clever and together Dean eased us both into training, following eagerly along. Our 1st of 4 sessions began with basic commands that are now the trusted foundation of Hamish's life. By week two, Hamish thought his name was "Touch". Now at week 4, we have GRADUATED a pup, who just turned 3 months of age into a manageable, potty-trained, treat-loving family member.Dean, Double D Dog Training came to us as a referral from a patron at our library. He scheduled in-home training, and on our schedule where every family member could participate. This was a life saver for us... especially since Hamish has yet to have all his shots to prep him for life's journey in this world. Dean believes in a treat rewards, and no harsh words or punishments. He was as involved as one could be by checking in on us by text, throughout each and every week and gave us access to speak with him when we felt our world was falling apart.Thank you Dean, for being not only the most awesome trainer but caring for our family as though we truly mattered. Your dedication in training us to be better parents to Hamish has given us a cherished and loved family member.

Dean was amazing! We have a 7 month old puppy that is stubborn, determined, and full of energy. Through systematic and detailed guidance, Dean gave us the skills we needed to guide our puppy's behavior, and teach him how to be a well-mannered dog. The reviews we read prior to starting with Dean are absolutely accurate - he is compassionate, knowledgeable, and patient, and is one of the better trainers we have experienced. Dean uses positive reinforcement which was the approach we wanted to use in our puppy's training. He is accessible when we have questions, and is flexible in setting training times. We enjoyed the experience, and look forward to using his services again for the advanced sessions! We highly recommend Double D Dog Training!

Double D is no doubt the greatest. He has worked wonders with Jessi, our little mini golden doodle, but he does really well training parents of puppies too. His training sessions were always met with excitement from Jessi and her parents. Jessi graduated and was awarded a Lambie, which she dearly loves. I have attached a photo of Jessi and Lambie. All the Christmas decorating wore them both out. Thanks Dean.

Dean's training is very professional and caring. Our puppy, Jessi, was 3 months old when Dean first came to our home. With Dean's technique, she learned so much in a short period of time: sit, down, take it, drop it, leave it, stay and more. . .all in four sessions! He not only trained Jessi, he helped me and my husband tremendously! There are so many questions you have with a new puppy and Dean is very generous with discussions and answers. We are so thankful to Dean and would recommend him to everyone with a new puppy or dog. (and Jessi adores him)

Dean was recommended to me by a friend for a dog that I recently adopted. Even before booking with him he was giving me tips and tricks so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to work with him. I had never worked with a dog trainer and Dean made it so easy to learn and practice with my new pup. I look forward to what else my dog can learn with him!

Dean was FANTASTIC! He made the extra effort to visit our new 5 month old rescue puppy, Maisy, in Bulverde and worked tirelessly with us to give her a baseline of obedience. Dean was warm and friendly and always went the 'extra mile' to help us train our puppy. I solidly recommend Double D Dog Training.

Just completed the 4 session Obedience Training with Dean and my Chihuahua mix rescue Foxxy and couldn't be happier with her progress. Foxxy was rescued off the streets and has been dealing with major reactive and trust issues of strangers since we adopted her 5 months ago. Dean helped me understand the roots of her behaviour and provided practical strategies for helping reduce her reactivity and become more comfortable around strangers with consistent, positive training methods based on redirecting her attention back to me and that was in addition to learning all the basic commands! The program was just as beneficial for me as it was for her and I am now feeling optimistic and better equipped for her continued progress.I really liked the fact that Dean came to our house, where Foxxy is most comfortable instead of having to go out somewhere. Dean is also very prompt, reliable and respectful so I would highly recommend him if you are looking for a professional dog trainer!

With so many options for dog training on the internet, I’m glad I selected Double D’s to work with me and Grace, my 9 wk Cavachon. Working w/Dean saved me wks of researching info and browsing the internet for pet training tips and applying the positive reinforcement tips that he demonstrates “consistently” has been key to keeping Grace safe both inside and out in the yard when she’s exploring any and everything she can get in contact with!

Dean is amazing at what he does. When I called him about our recent rescue, a 5 month old Great Dane with reactive issues , he was quick to respond and very willing to help us out. In the first session, Enzo was anxious to meet him, and by the last session Dean became someone Enzo trusted and was always happy to see him. Dean gave us great tips to continue to get Enzo to be more confident and helped us as owners understand him more. We highly recommend Dean to anyone, he’s very knowledgeable and kind!

I recently rescued my 2 year old chihuahua mix, Princess, and wanted her to learn basic commands. Dean was amazing with Princess…….and patient with me as I learned to give the commands😉. Our last session was a few days ago & we’l miss our weekly time with Double D. If your dog needs basic or advanced training, I highly recommend reaching out to Double D! I guarantee you’ll be happy with the results.

Dean was incredible in working with my puppy. She was a handful (to say the least) and he helped me understand not only the basics, but how to build a great schedule and what tools to use to keep her busy throughout the day. She can do sit, stay, down, leave it, take it/drop it, look at me, and our new favorite - touch - which gets her to come to me from anywhere in the house. Can’t wait to see how she continues to learn!

Dean has been a blessing to my husband and me and our new puppy. We got a new puppy (Lily) to be friends with our 5 year old sedate poodle (Izzi). What a shock when we found out what a terror the puppy was and the jealousy of Izzi. Dean saved us from pulling our hair out. He immediately formed a positive relationship with our 3 month old mini poodle and our 5 year old. He taught my husband commands to use and he taught Lily and Izzi the commands. He also recommended toys, playpen and games they love. We cannot thank Dean enough. Also, he always taken my calls and responds to texts regarding questions post training. Bill, Izzi and Lily give our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Dean. He is the best🪵🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺🐾🦴💕

So so glad we booked Dean for training with our sweet little Shiba Inu! Over the four lessons, she went from a pupper who would hide under the bed and was impossible to catch to a dog who comes upon hearing her name, waits, shakes, and stays and so much more. Dean also introduced us to a world of safe treats and toys. Don’t wait, book now! Totally worth it. 😊

Dean was incredible! He helped us from the moment we brought our puppy Ellie home, with his advanced skill set out 14 week old Bernedoodle is already so well behaved. I contacted him before we even brought of puppy home from the breeder and he set us up for success by making sure we had everything prepared for potty training and more. She understands all the commands he taught and is overall just such an amazing resource to have as a new dog owner. Thank you Dean!

We recently completed our dog training sessions with Dean at Double D Dog Training, and we couldn't be happier with the results. Dean does an amazing job with the "train the trainer" model, and we feel very confident continuing everything we learned from him in order to set up our puppy, Tibbers, for maximum success.We immediately noticed the improvement in Tibbers after just a few sessions. She was much more responsive to our commands, and she was starting to learn how to behave in a variety of different situations. We especially loved the "going out in public" sessions! Tibbers did amazing in Bass Pro Shop even though that was her first time in a big public setting.If you're looking for a dog trainer who will help you create a well-behaved and happy member of your family, we highly recommend Double D Dog Training!Here are some of the specific things we loved about Dean's training:- He is patient and understanding. He never gets frustrated with us or Tibbers, even when we make mistakes.- He is clear and concise in his instructions. We always know exactly what he wants us to do, and he is always willing to answer our questions.- He is positive and encouraging. He makes training fun for both us and Tibbers, and he always celebrates our successes.- He is flexible and accommodating. He was willing to work with our schedule, and he was always willing to go the extra mile to help us succeed.- Bonus; Dean is also from NOLA, so he got along quite well with our family when we did a session at our parents house.Once again, we are so grateful for Dean's help, and we highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a dog trainer! (The pictures attached are from the final session with Tibbers at Bass Pro Shop)

We found Dean from a referral from our vetHis training is immediate-the girls Abby (3) and Lizzy ( 7 mos) started training IMMEDIATELY. They respected him and listened to him from the start- they loved the training and it was so fun to watch them become better each visit -they were so eager to please Dean. His mantra is practice, practice, practice and it does pay off.He is very kind, pleasant, very reasonable, and does in home training, which was a must for us since they are small. We will be signing up for advanced soon, can’t ask for a better testimonial than we want him back !!!!

We were so lucky to have found Double D Dog Training for our mini cockapoo Tux. He just completed a week of “board and train” and we are amazed at how much he’s accomplished. Mr. Dean was fantastic and treated Tux like he was his own. We are now able to take him out to stores, restaurants, etc and know that he will be well behaved. We highly recommend Dean and his sweet, caring nature for your fur babies.

If you need help with obedience training and learning new commands, look no further than Double D Dog Training! Thanks so much Dean, we had such a great experience!

I am an animal lover who takes in strays often and my most recent furbaby definitely need some help with commands. I was so excited when I found Double D Dog Training online but even more so when I first met Dean and realized that this man is just as much of an animal lover as we are. He actually cares about teaching both us and our animals how to be successful in training. My stray dog did not know any commands, and I’m not just saying that for the review, I mean seriously we couldn’t get him to sit. After just a few weeks of training with Dean he can now do a variety of commands very well and most importantly he does them regularly. We are so thankful for Dean and we are definitely gonna miss having him around, he became our dogs buddy but we are super thankful for the time and effort and genuine love he gave to our furbaby! 10/10 recommend!

I could not recommend Dean enough to anyone who needs help training their dog. Dean was prompt, helpful and brought a level of fun to all of our training sessions. Our dog loved the “treat man” and responded extremely well to Dean’s methodology. What I appreciated the most was how Dean checked in (and still does even after we have completed our sessions) and that he always made us feel like he valued us as a customer. Our dog (and us!) have learned valuable lessons that we will be able to carry into the years to come.

Dean is amazing!! I can't say enough good things about our experience and highly, highly recommend! We have two German Shepherd dogs - one 5 year old and one 5 months old and we were really struggling. After a series of 4 sessions with Dean, we are all a million times happier! It might seem like I'm exaggerating, but those 4 hours have been a difference of night and day. Not only did he teach us and the pups commands that are incredibly useful, he also helped us understand them better and told us about different toys and treats we could get to keep the dogs busy, which means less boredom, which means less getting into trouble. The cost was less WAY less than we had been quoted from other training programs, plus he came to us, which was super convenient for our family and helped us see how to practice these commands in our home environment and allowed all 5 of us to be involved, all learning the same commands, so we can all be consistent with the pups. I feel empowered and know that, with these tools, we and our dogs will have a very happy life together. Thank you Dean!!

We have seen night and day improvements with our 2 yo chihuahua mix. He is a little man with a big personality and Dean helped us better understand him and his needs to be able to continuously work with him. We would get very nervous bringing him around people and dogs and particular and now we are more confident in him. Dean is very knowledgeable and patient as we were all learning new habits for Bear. Bear will definitely miss his new friend Double D AKA Mr. Treat man. We really appreciate all the guidance with Bear 🐻

Dean provided Advanced Obedience Training for our almost 2 year old golden retriever, Pooh Bear. Pooh Bear had a very solid foundation of basic skills (sit, stay, lay down, walking on a leash, etc), but we needed some help getting her socialized and working through recall with distractions.The first three sessions focused on socialization, visiting Home Depot first, then the Shops at La Cantera, and then Boerne Main Street. Dean was fantastic in teaching us how to navigate public places through redirecting, maintaining eye contact with treats, handling distractions and greeting people. She absolutely loved getting some new sniffs and meeting Home Depot employees and families with small children. So much fun! We also worked on recall during our last session and learned some helpful tips and tricks we’ll be able to use again and again! Dean even spent a little time with our new puppy and gave us a few pointers as we’re navigating training a puppy and continuing to train our older dog.Dean was very willing to discuss and answer any one-off questions we had, including harnesses, high value treats, and separation anxiety. We have been very impressed by his depth of knowledge, his enthusiasm for what he does, and his love of dogs! Highly recommend for advanced training! Thank you, Double D!

I must say I'm very happy with the outcome of Molly's training. We just moved to Texas and the change didn't sit well with my dog, she started acting out and barking at people for no reason. I contacted Dean and we spoke about my concerns, after the first day of training I could see the results. The basic obedience program gave her the structure she was craving, now we both have the tools to help her adapt into her new environment ans it's working great! Besides her learning new commands, it streghten the bond between us and she is a happier dog. I will keep up with the training and all the great advice I received from Dean, I couldn't be happier!

We loved Dean, the owner of Double D Dog Training. Cooper, our 8 week old English Doodle did too! He would get so excited when he saw Dean drive up! We all looked forward to each training session. It was upbeat, positive and so much FUN! We all learned so much!

Dean recommended specific toys and treats for Cooper and they were all perfect!

Prices are very reasonable, especially since Dean came to our house. It was great to train in our own home environment.

We are excited to add some add on training once Cooper has all of his vaccinations.

If you are looking for some dog training - highly recommend Double D without hesitation!

Dean is amazingly good.
Someone called him the dog whisperer and we agree.
He is calm, patient,knowledgeable
& our Thumper (12 lb Bichon/Shihtzu mix, 1 1/2 years,& terribly spoiled, also totallyuntrained) loved him. Dean had him doing everything he asked plus taught us how to train him. He arrived on time plus was very pleasant to be
around. I’m so grateful we were fortunate to find him and we highly recommend him to any and everyone. You cannot find a better trainer or nicer person.

We were referred to Double D Dog Training by Charming Pet Rescue after we adopted the newest member of our family. We needed help with positive steps to introduce the dogs to each other and positive behavior. We absolutely enjoyed the obedience training sessions with Dean. He came with a wonderful attitude and is great with people and with dogs! We highly recommend!

We just got our new puppy “Summer” just over a month ago and today she (and we) graduated puppy training. We are so proud! We haven’t had a puppy in many years and had no idea where to start. Cue Dean, the dog dude! What a blessing! He had her responding to commands nearly immediately. We, on the other hand, took a little more time, but still caught on pretty quickly. 😆. Dean is a true training professional and you can tell he really cares about your pup, and you, getting it right. He answers all questions thoroughly and has great suggestions. After 4 weeks, we have a puppy who understands and responds to a lot of commands and we have the knowledge and the tools to keep her a happy, trained dog. We will definitely be calling Dean back for more advanced training when she’s a little older and ready. Summer, Tom and I thank you!!!

This is our Cooper, he completed his Puppy Obedience Training with owner/trainer of Double D Dog Training, Doug Duet. Dean is amazing, he uses positive reinforcement to train which Cooper loved. Cooper began his adventure at 8 weeks and we have all learned so much from Dean. Dean provided us with many helpful suggestions on quality treats, and which toys were best for our Cooper. If you’re looking for a trainer call Double D Dog Training you will absolutely be pleased with the outcome! Thanks a bunch Dean. Cooper loves Dean!

We loved working with Dean from Double D Dog Training! He was very professional, reliable and flexible. We have a 1 year old mix and 4 year old Yorkie that have developed some bad habits and refuse to listen. After just one lesson with Dean they were already showing signs of improvement. Both have adapted wonderfully to many of the techniques we learned from Dean and we are very happy with the results. We definitely recommend!

Double D was very patient with both Aggie and me. The training was excellent I thought. Aggie learned a lot of commands. And at the end of the basic course we have several things to continue to work on and improve. I can hardly wait until we are disciplined enough to move on to the advanced trading program with Double D.

We are first time puppy 🐶 owners, so Dean walked into an absolutely clueless situation. His method of training is nothing short of amazing; positive reinforcement DOES work! My pup is only 10 weeks old and is almost 100% potty trained and obeys all commands we have learned. He also sleeps in his kennel at night without whining!!! We did practice, as Dean suggested. So if you’re ready to meet halfway w the work, you’ll be amazed at the result!!

Dean Duet, you are amazing! Thank you for training Sunday and me. You were so patient with both of us. She is doing so well! The folder you provided with each session’s training was so helpful. I refer back to it often to make sure I’m doing it correctly. Thank you for the Kong recipes. They are a life saver when I crate her. I ordered several of the brain games and toys you suggested and she loves them! I will be contacting you for further training to help us be successful when we are in public! This training was well worth it!

I personally recommend Double D Dog Training and I am looking forward to advanced training in the next few months. I can, without reservation give Double D high marks through and through.

Our encounter with Dean began exactly 2 weeks after we were blessed with Hamish, the day after Thanksgiving. We were living a fairly calm lifestyle, after the 2 seven month old kittens we adopted were finally settling in with us and our lovely 15 year old white Labrador. Hamish, an adorable Chocolate Labrador puppy had just turned 8wks old...high energy... small, sharp teeth... and an even smaller bladder. What were we thinking???

Now, Hamish is a rock star in every sense of the word. He's smart, clever and together Dean eased us both into training, following eagerly along. Our 1st of 4 sessions began with basic commands that are now the trusted foundation of Hamish's life. By week two, Hamish thought his name was "Touch". Now at week 4, we have GRADUATED a pup, who just turned 3 months of age into a manageable, potty-trained, treat-loving family member.

Dean, Double D Dog Training came to us as a referral from a patron at our library. He scheduled in-home training, and on our schedule where every family member could participate. This was a life saver for us... especially since Hamish has yet to have all his shots to prep him for life's journey in this world. Dean believes in a treat rewards, and no harsh words or punishments. He was as involved as one could be by checking in on us by text, throughout each and every week and gave us access to speak with him when we felt our world was falling apart.

Thank you Dean, for being not only the most awesome trainer but caring for our family as though we truly mattered. Your dedication in training us to be better parents to Hamish has given us a cherished and loved family member.

Dean was incredible in working with my puppy. She was a handful (to say the least) and he helped me understand not only the basics, but how to build a great schedule and what tools to use to keep her busy throughout the day. She can do sit, stay, down, leave it, take it/drop it, look at me, and our new favorite - touch - which gets her to come to me from anywhere in the house. Can’t wait to see how she continues to learn!

Dean has been a blessing to my husband and me and our new puppy. We got a new puppy (Lily) to be friends with our 5 year old sedate poodle (Izzi). What a shock when we found out what a terror the puppy was and the jealousy of Izzi. Dean saved us from pulling our hair out. He immediately formed a positive relationship with our 3 month old mini poodle and our 5 year old. He taught my husband commands to use and he taught Lily and Izzi the commands. He also recommended toys, playpen and games they love. We cannot thank Dean enough. Also, he always taken my calls and responds to texts regarding questions post training. Bill, Izzi and Lily give our heartfelt thanks and appreciation to Dean. He is the best🪵🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺🐕‍🦺🐾🦴💕

I could not recommend Dean enough to anyone who needs help training their dog. Dean was prompt, helpful and brought a level of fun to all of our training sessions. Our dog loved the “treat man” and responded extremely well to Dean’s methodology. What I appreciated the most was how Dean checked in (and still does even after we have completed our sessions) and that he always made us feel like he valued us as a customer. Our dog (and us!) have learned valuable lessons that we will be able to carry into the years to come.

Dean provided Advanced Obedience Training for our almost 2 year old golden retriever, Pooh Bear. Pooh Bear had a very solid foundation of basic skills (sit, stay, lay down, walking on a leash, etc), but we needed some help getting her socialized and working through recall with distractions.

The first three sessions focused on socialization, visiting Home Depot first, then the Shops at La Cantera, and then Boerne Main Street. Dean was fantastic in teaching us how to navigate public places through redirecting, maintaining eye contact with treats, handling distractions and greeting people. She absolutely loved getting some new sniffs and meeting Home Depot employees and families with small children. So much fun! We also worked on recall during our last session and learned some helpful tips and tricks we’ll be able to use again and again! Dean even spent a little time with our new puppy and gave us a few pointers as we’re navigating training a puppy and continuing to train our older dog.

Dean was very willing to discuss and answer any one-off questions we had, including harnesses, high value treats, and separation anxiety. We have been very impressed by his depth of knowledge, his enthusiasm for what he does, and his love of dogs! Highly recommend for advanced training! Thank you, Double D!

We are so thankful that we found you!

Dean is hands down the absolute best dog trainer around! We introduced our puppy Charlie into the family, but he was initially having a hard time adjusting to his new life. Dean stepped in and helped Charlie gain his confidence by learning new commands, tricks, and manners. He was also so helpful explaining to us what we should and should not be doing as new puppy parents. Now, Charlie is a totally different puppy thanks to Dean!! We are so grateful for you and all that you taught our boy!

We checked out a couple of different training options when we adopted a 2-year-old adult dog, Buster. He’s a sweet dog, but he can be a handful on a leash. He’s protective of us and easily distracted by squirrels and cats on the sidewalk. (Runners and cyclists, too). We really liked that Dean was able to come to our home and focus just on us and our dog. He explained everything that we would be doing before we started the sessions, and he gave us loads of tips for reinforcing the desired behavior. We learned as much as, if not more, than the dog did, and we are grateful for Dean’s expertise.

What can I say, Dean was amazing! We adopted our Blue Heeler puppy, Charlotte and our son and daughter-in-law adopted her brother, Goose. We have an older Blue Heeler mix, Molly Mae, who is very well trained and we were concerned the babies would teach her bad habits! We were excited to have the opportunity to do an in-home dog training during the pandemic to stay safe. Dean was great with my fiancé, Adolph, myself, and my 8-year-old daughter, Ali, teaching all of us what we were doing right or wrong and how we could fix the behaviors we didn’t like. He was also very flexible to our schedules which really helped! Charlotte is now just as obedient as Molly Mae! It’s very important to practice everything he teaches you even after the training is done. But I promise it is worth the investment. Here’s a picture of both Goose and Charlotte graduating puppy school!

I worked with Dean using his puppy program to help set a good foundation for our then 10 week old great dane puppy. We have experience with the breed, but I could tell she was going to have a boisterous personality and I wanted to ensure that we set her up for success. With just a few sessions Heidi was a different pup and able to sit, stay, leave it, touch, shake, high five, and more on command. Dan also provided some great handouts so I can continue working with her along with some enrichment activity ideas. Highly recommend!

Dean is our very own dog whisperer! His love of dogs is apparent, and our dogs absolutely adore him. When I contacted Dean for help with training Hazel, our 5 month old mini goldendoodle, I was a little concerned she was going to be a difficult case. After our very first session, Dean had me convinced otherwise and Hazel proved to be a model student. I love the positive reinforcement training model Dean uses to train, and Hazel responded beautifully. Dean was super flexible with scheduling our sessions and it was wonderful to have the one-on-one instruction at our home. In a time where social distancing and mask wearing pose training challenges, Dean made it work for us and I’m proud to say that Hazel successfully completed her training with flying colors. I highly recommend Double D Dog Training for anything from basic skills to advanced training.

Dean did an amazing job with Pretzel, a 3 month golden doodle and included our 3 year old grandson in the classes. This was much appreciated and was successful in building a relationship between the two. Dean made sure that not only my husband who did the first 3 of the 4 classes, but that I understood everything that was covered by providing a quick tutorial on everything that was covered in the classes. I would highly recommend Dean if you are looking for someone who is committed to not only working with the puppy/dog, but with everyone involved in the puppy/dogs daily live. Dean is the trainer for you.

Dean is a great dog trainer. He very quickly established a trusting relationship with our very jittery, probably abused rescue dog. Tricks and training techniques were taught to the dog and his very unqualified dog parents. Dean is also very personable, educated, punctual and generous. He even provides backup written material to reinforce and remind us of the proper way to deal with Cash. I would highly recommend Dean to train your dog!!

Brought multiple methods of training and provided extra practice ideas to help as Nugget progresses. Within just 4 sessions we saw so much improvement! He left us with so many tips and tricks to help continue and enforce what Nugget has learned. Overall great experience!

Nugget says thanks for all the treats and teaching her new tricks!

I want to start off by saying that at first I was a little skeptical with the idea of a dog trainer but Dean was absolutely amazing when it came to helping my pup Milo get his confidence up and helped me communicate better with Milo. Dean was very nice, professional , eager and him and Milo were best buds by the last training class. Even two weeks later , Milo has not gotten off track with his training and I am so proud of him and thankful to Dean for all of the training and working with me. I HIGHLY recommend Dean to be your next trainer, you will not regret it.

My puppy absolutely loved dean every time he came over and I am so glad I had dean as a trainer! I strongly recommend all to use dean - so worth it!! Thanks dean !

We had a good experience with Dean training our 1 year old yorkie. He was very profesional, enthusiastic and we could see he loves dogs so much. It was a four session training with the whole family and our puppy learn some commands like sit, touch, leave it, clicker. Besides he gave us printed information and links which are very useful. We definitely recommend him.

We had a wonderful experience working with Double D Dog Training! Dean was knowledge and enthusiastic and included our entire family in the training process of our puppy. Our puppy, Jake, learned many useful commands such as: wait, leave it, and stay. We were very pleased with our experience and would highly recommend Double D Dog Training!

Dean and Double D Dog Training are far and away the best money you can possibly spend for not only your dog’s training needs, but your own needs as well. My wife and I felt extremely discouraged with how our dog was behaving (or not behaving as the case was), even after we had invested the time and energy into other training classes. We knew that we were part of the problem with not providing the consistent training and follow up needed. Having Dean instruct and guide us and show us just how invaluable consistency and follow through are with training was the greatest reward we could have gotten. If you have any hesitation about individualized training, you can bet that they will be gone after utilizing Dean and his program. Dean has our highest recommendation and will definitely exceed every expectation you could have.

Dean was great. we worked with him for four sessions and our puppy knows many commands. sit, stay, come, leave it, drop it. she walks on a leash beautifully. Dean helped us with house training also. I would recommend Dean to anyone wanting to work on your dogs behavior. Dean's program is easy to follow and implement. we will be doing the advanced program for sure. Dean even helped our kids learn how to work with and be better with the dog. little kids 3, 7 and 10. all our kids are much more comfortable around the dog now. thanks so much Dean.

We had a rather large dog that was not getting the most basic command of "come". She is one of those dogs that are fearfully afraid of thunder, and brought that fear to vet visits. We are on 5 acres, and if she saw me with a leash, she was gone. My son could always eventually wrangle her, but it was an immense chore. The worst was when she slipped her collar at Herbst. It took three physician's assistants and myself to catch her (she took off to that vacant field across the street). That was the final straw. I somehow found Dean, who came twice a week, and oh-so-slowly, little by little, got her to his van, then got her to put a paw on the opening, then up in the van. I told him at the beginning he'll never do it. I was wrong. Now, when I grab the leash, she runs to the back of my SUV, and waits for me to open the hatch, and then jumps in. Amazing. Dean was patient, kind, and I felt he did the job he came to do in a timely and efficient manner. I cannot recommend him enough.

Dean did a great job training my yorkie, Marley! Some of the things he worked on with her were loose leash walking, clicker training when she was barking in the back yard and waiting at her food bowl. She is so much better behaved now after completing her Double D basic obedience training and I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of dog training!!

My family needed some help with our pitbull puppy. We had trained her basic commands but were in need of help with her socializing, timidness and fighting with our other dog. Dean came to our house to see how she behaves and what we were dealing with. In the four sessions we saw marked improvement and he gave us skills to turn a good dog into a great dog! Dean loves animals and loves to teach kids as well as us adults. We were so incredibly happy to have Dean work with us I would recommend him to anyone!

For the last two years I have been taking our Aussie, named Stitches, to a local groomer, Pooches Day Spa, located at the end of Fair Oaks Parkway in Fair Oaks Ranch, TX. Initially Stitches was reluctant at being dropped off, but as time went by, Stitches attitude has gone from reticent to eager. Seven weeks ago I engaged Dean Duet who works at Pooches Day Spa and who also has a dog training business evenings and weekends, to come out to our house on Sundays and work with Stitches and I on obedience training.

What I have concluded participating in the training, is that Dean is the reason Stitches likes going to the groomers. Dogs have an innate sense for gauging the range of people’s emotions like anger, fear, sadness, love, kindness, empathy and warmth. Just like humans, dogs respond to the emotions that they sense in the humans they encounter. Stitches has responded in kind to the positive emotions radiated by Dean.

And just as kids learn that Dad’s mean fun and Mom’s mean business, Stitches has quickly learned to want to be cooperative in the training process. It is the empathy and warmth as much as it is the great treats that Dean uses as rewards in the training process that Stitches is responding to.

I can recommend Dean without reservation as a dog trainer!
