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.  Small things like 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.

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.  If not approached properly, dogs can be suspicious and wary of any attempts to change them. Many dogs running loose or caged in America come from homes where there was failed training attempts. Many people think they can understand a dog well enough to train it, yet most become disappointed and disillusioned by their failed attempts.

People Just Want Their Dog to Listen

The purpose of my central valley dog training business is to help dogs and owners in their own homes.  I want to help them get back on the right track of communication and cooperation. Most people just want their dog to not hurt their guests and to have the acceptable manners.

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 Way of a dog training service involves a step by step training approach that I call Stop Sit & Wait. It is a way that I developed to quickly connect dog owners to their dogs, while helping build basic obedience & leash training skills! Let me help you teach your dog the information you require it to learn.

Put It in to Practice

Stop Sit & Wait is designed from classic and progressive dog behavior training methods…all of which are 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.

Check out the reviews for Way of a Dog.

The best part is Joe comes to your house.  I have two large undisciplined dogs that I do not like to transport.  Joe really had to earn his pay with them but Joe did so with out any complaints.  I would recommend him to anyone especially with unruly dogs.

I have a 4 year old yorkie who was very possessive of me and we were bringing in new dogs in the home. And joe completely transformed my 4 year old into a completely different dog I can't thank you enough!

Kaitlyn B.

Joe's method of training was straightforward and I could see positive results immediately.  I would thoroughly recommend his services.

Kathleen W.

Joe did a wonderful job with our little dog!
I would highly recommend him for any dog behavior problem!! He truly is a dog whisperer.
Thanks Joe!!!

Barbara E.

JOE is absolutely the BEST! He is able to help identify what our dogs need and what WE can do to help teach them (and undo some things we did incorrectly). I would recommend him to anyone needing dog training (well, human training too). THANKS JOE!!!

Had Joe come over for a few sessions and I can already see the difference in my puppy's behavior. Not only does he work with the dog, but he gives you the tools to continue to the work after he is gone. With some work and consistency, if you use the tools and tips he gives you for your dog, your dog will be exactly how you want them to be. I highly recommend his services.

"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."

Michele V.

"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."
