Description

Lance tries to be particularly mindful of what each person needs specifically to have the most fulfilling relationship with their dog. Dogs only repeat behaviors that get reinforced, so owners need to understand just what constitutes reinforcement in order to avoid creating unwanted behavior, while also reinforcing desirable behaviors....

My husband and I adopted Oreo, our 2-year-old Shih Tzu/Cairn Terrier mix about 7 months ago. It quickly became apparent that he needed some serious help and training. He had separation anxiety, fear aggression issues, was territorial, and overall was just very anxious and very untrusting of people besides the two of us. We were feeling overwhelmed, and unsure if we could handle him as first-time d...

I spent 500 bucks for a number of classes that lasted me for six months. They are probably the best dog trainers in the whole wide world. I would tell a friend or family members that they should not take their dogs anywhere else.

Lance has been great from the start with an hour assessment to the first weeks when we came once a week for individual training to the every other week in a small class, (three people and dogs). This has fit me and my dogs needs perfectly. Lance is patient and has a good sense of humor. He is skilled not only training dogs and also training people to train their dogs. His price is right. We are st...

Description of Work
Lance and his team have worked with a few of my dogs. Will accessed the first dog I brought there. He was impressive and I have watched him work with many dogs over the years I have used their service. There is a female trainer there and she has been very responsive to me when I have needed to get messages to Lance, the trainer operator and owner I work with now. The female trainer is very good with dogs as I have watched her work with the dogs that have been left for doggy day care and training. Lance is working with me and my five year old mini dachshund and he is very patient. He has a great sense of humor. He and his team know that one size does not fit all and they take an individual approach when they access the dog and the owner's needs. They come up with a plan that is specific for you and your dog. We bought 15 sessions and we come every other week to have time to practice what we learned. We extended our training at a very reasonable rate. Lance and his team are good at not only training the dog but also training the owner of the dog. Not all dog trainers are good at helping the dog owner to learn and I found out the hard way as the first dog trainer I went to kicked me and my dog out of class because she could not communicate with people and my Jack Russel made her look foolish. I swore I would never go to another dog trainer but I took a chance with Lance and I am very satisfied.

I heard about Lance at Compatible Canine through a friend. I made an appointment and brought our new dog to meet him. The place upon arrival was a bit frightening with dog crates stacked on top of each other, dimly lit but I stayed as we were really struggling with our dog. Lance really seemed to connect with the dog and gave us a great tip that allowed us to finally sleep through the night. I did...

After one session, things were back on track with this dog. Lance was kind to me and the dog, he was a gentleman to me and other people in the class, and boy, does he know dogs and how to help them! His explanations were super.

Description of Work
Lance helped me with a dog who was punky with other dogs.
