Fast, In-Home Dog Training Throughout the Fresno & Clovis Area
“Sadly, so many obedience training classes aren’t meeting the needs of the pet dog owner who simply wants a dog that is a pleasant companion and that behaves at home. Well intended owners sign up for classes at their local obedience school, only to get instruction on heeling and figure 8s. But what most dog owners want is a dog that will come when called and that will not jump on everyone who enters the house.” Mary R. Burch Ph.D.
It is So True With Many Dogs in Our Homes
I get calls all the time to go into peoples homes regarding dogs jumping on guests; or growling and scaring guests & family away; or jumping on and knocking over the elderly and small children. Doorbells are a big event in many dog owners homes. It’s how dogs and owners react to them determine if it’s a pass or fail. To me, it just gives me a clearer sense of the type of energy going on in the home. Here’s a link to my most common types of In-Home House Calls.
My Goal Is to Change Your Dogs Attitude and to Build It’s Learning Capacity
Like us humans, dogs historically put up resistance to humans attempts to change them. They can be suspicious and wary of our new attempts to change them again. Most of all dogs, either running loose or caged in America, come from failed training attempts. Someone out there thought they could understand a dog and get it to listen in no time flat, only to became quickly disappointed and disillusioned by their frustrated and uninformed attempts.
Many People Do Just Want Their Dogs to Listen
The purpose of my Clovis and Fresno dog training business is to help you and your dog in your own home. I want you to get back on the right track of communication and cooperation with your misbehaving pet. Most people just want their dog to not hurt their guests and to have simple manners acceptable that the owners can tolerate.
Learn Stop Sit & Wait
If you made it this far, then you have concluded that investing in your dogs better behavior is a smart idea. My Fresno dog training work involves a step by step training approach in your own home that I call Stop Sit & Wait. It is a way to quickly connect with your dog, while helping your dog build basic obedience & leash training skills! It’s a way to teach your dog that you have information for it to learn. It is built from classic and progressive dog behavior training methods all focused on positive reinforcement and communication. It’s the Fastest and most effective way I know to help you quickly integrate your dog back into your home family life.
Fast and Effective In-Home Fresno Dog Training
Not many dog trainers do what I do. My style isn’t ordinary and it involves massage and calming techniques that I sometimes need to use to help progress through the sessions. Once you get your dog to learn how to listen to you, then you can teach it most anything, right? I show you results that day, and I am confident in the success of my diligent clients! Nothing is more satisfying to me than seeing a relieved owner now excited about the changes they see in their pet(s).

"Joe is fantastic! We have a 7 year old goldendoodle and an 11 year old dachshund and Joe has been able to train both to stop barking at the doorbell, stay out of the kitchen, stop stealing food off the counter, backup, sit, stop/stay, have less anxiety, and have overall better house manners. I had been told by friends/family and other trainers that our 11 year old should be left alone because of his age and breed, Joe was eager and ready to train and he did it! Our 11 year old is actually back under control! Hands down, the best trainer I have ever met!"
"Valuable In-Home Training That's Worth Every Penny! Joe provides practical and instantly effective training for the dog and the humans in your home. Having him come to us allowed us work with specific issues in our home such as Kimme chasing our male cat on a daily basis. The "sit, stop, wait" approach used by Joe helped her to stay focused, learn to listen, STOP chasing the cat multiple times a day, and bring an overall calm to our home. The techniques can be practiced on your own and the home visits from Joe are far more effective than any group lessons we've had. Kimme is a Husky mix and Huskies are notoriously head strong meaning Kimme often ignores commands. She is much better after just a few sessions and we intend to use Joe's talent and services when we add to our pack in the future."
"Joe knows what he's doing. He connects with dogs, regardless of how difficult their behavior may be. Within a short period of time, they are paying attention to him and learning the sit, stop, and wait method that helps them focus and become better pets. Highly recommended."
"Joe truly has the gift, it is obvious when he interacts with the dogs/furry family members. He made us comfortable that gaining their respect would be positive for them and us. Having a brother and sister from the same litter that total over 180 pounds between the two of them, it was becoming dangerous. Within two weekends of Joe coming to our home, I have seen such an incredible difference more so in me then in them. I was so afraid to hurt them by any type of leash training. He showed me how to do it properly with authority not frustration. He convinced me that I wasn't going to break them or hurt their feelings by getting their attention. Joe is the incredible personality as well as person we intend on continuing a once a month follow-up to keep them and us on the right path.
Toby, Zoey and the rest of the family are blessed we made the call!!"
"Joe taught me and my brothers on how to handle my dog Bear in a positive way. He has made a complete 180, thanks Joe for all the help. Worth the investment, I would hire him again if I needed help with another dog."
"I got a rescue dog and promptly called Joe to come help prevent any predictable problems. He came within a few days. He worked with JoJo and me, providing us information, demonstration, and hands on implementation to maximize our ability to be together. She is a sweet dog and he helped me learn how to use a soft but effective approach with her so that she will do the basics. Thank you Joe. I highly recommend him to all dog owners to establish or improve communications between human and dog."
Joe helped Scarlett with being so shy and scared and got Nellie to not bark so much!
Scarlett is so much more responsive but still shy and Nellie still barks but knows how to walk with a leash like a real lady. Barking is way down. I suppose if I did not work then Joe could come over more and they would be almost perfect but I love the girls and don't want to change their personality all together. Thank you Joe
"Joe is very patient and really has a way with dogs. Most of my friends couldn't believe the change in my dog!!! joe took the time to train my crazy puppy. he is very patient and really has a way with dogs. Joe understands what is going on in the dog's head and works with the owner on how to change the bad behaviors. we did a series of training sessions with different problem solving tactics. while my dog still has some issues, I am now better equipped to deal with them when they arise. he is much calmer and pays better attention to me. when I do need to correct him, I follow the guidelines joe set in place with my dog and the dog responds in a positive manner. I would recommend the way of the dog to anyone with a rowdy puppy!!!"
"After only two sessions with Joe, Bogey and Driver are so much more attentive to me and no more tugging on the leash!!! I highly recommend a visit with Joe!"
