See what clients are saying….

“Highly recommend!! The experience we had with Nate’s training for our two dogs has been unbelievable!! I can tell you that he is definitely the real deal. My girlfriend and I were at our wits end with our second puppy who was very high energy and reactive and snapped at our first dog a couple of times. Using Nate’s techniques we were able to quickly nip it in the bud and finally be able to see a silver lining. We never thought they would be able to be calm around each other so quickly.”


“Nate is a master trainer of dogs and their owners. He is also responsive, intelligent and a great communicator”

-Johanna W

“It has been a treat to work with Nate. His framework is simple, easy to follow and effective. After reading many articles and watching countless YouTube videos, it is great to have a cohesive strategy to follow to live our lives with more peace in our day to day. Since Nate, our pup no longer barks continuously and we now have tactics to use as corrective behaviors that are both positive and effective. Thank you so much Nate for giving us the tools to manage our sweet pup more effectively giving us and our dog a happier life.”

-Denise I.

“Nathan has made an amazing difference in our dogs in the four weeks he’s worked with us. It has made every aspect of our home life better”

-Sylvia W

“Nate is a great guy with a positive approach to dog training, focusing on training the human as much as the dog. Nate brings a nice holistic approach to getting your dog to behave and listen to you.. Finally. We recommend Nate to anyone looking for a dog trainer here in Sonoma. He definitely takes the time to make sure you understand the process and wants nothing more than to see your success with your pup.”

-Daisy & Alex S.

“6/5 stars. Great with our 2 year rescue pup and our 8 year old toy poodle. Have a bigger challenge than that? Call him.”

-Q. W.
