Help the Dogs to Unlearn Ingrained Bad Behaviors as Well as Teach Good Behaviors

Posted by Sit Happens Dog Training on Mar 7 2022

Working with Danny was a wonderful experience both for me and my dogs.  Maggie and Chubby are 8 year old ShihTzus who have spent the last 8 years doing whatever they wanted to do whenever they wanted to do it.  They are great, loving dogs but admittedly spoiled.  Walks were an adventure as they were hyper aware of their surroundings and barked and jumped at anyone that walked by or anything with wheels.  Danny really had his work cut out for him as he had to help the dogs to unlearn ingrained bad behaviors as well as teach good behaviors.  In addition, I was one adult with 2 energetic pups.  Danny was so great with all 3 of us - patient with me, instructive, and lovingly clear and consistent with the dogs.  I can't believe that it is now a pleasure to walk the dogs and I can even take them into a store.  Chubby and Maggie have come such a long way.  I highly recommend both Danny and the program.  I will truly miss the lessons.  I learned as much as my dogs.


Dave is amazing!! He changed my dog and I’s lives! He is reliable and hard working. His work not only trains the dog but more especially the owner on how to handle their dog. I would give 6 stars if possible! Thank you Dave!

Dave helped us immensely with our five-year-old Yorkie mix, Max. Max's behavior at the door, getting the leash on, getting the muzzle on for vet visits -- all that and more had gotten incredibly difficult. We saw *significant* improvements -- in just a couple of weeks -- with minor changes to our behavior and patterns. Dave is both personable and results-oriented, while also demonstrating his love for dogs, including ours. We recommend Dave!

We are so glad we met Dave! We adopted a puppy 4 weeks ago, and he has been a HUGE support for us integrating Merlin into our family. He has taught us how to get started training early, and he has responded very fast to any questions we have outside of our sessions. We can't wait to continue working with our new addition to get him trained off-leash like Dave's dog. We can't recommend him enough!

I LOVE Dave! I've known him 5 years and I still go back to him with questions, he is committed, responsive and just gets it. He has been my Go To trainer for my 5 year old Weimaraner Grace Olivia from the moment I brought her home - from the beginning he showed so much care and concern for my girl, and she is AMAZING because of his efforts to train me! I am getting a new puppy soon and you better believe he/she will be a Sit Happens graduate as well!
