Love Matt's approach. He didn't tell us what to do. It wasn't "this is how you do it, now do it." He first explained how dogs think and how and what they understand. Then he explained to us his training methods and why and how they work. His approach enables you to understand how to approach your dogs because you understand how they think and what they will understand. You have confidence in what you are doing because the process makes sense to you. He preaches a calm voice, patience, and repetition. No yelling, no spanking, no punishment. The cost is not cheap, but it is not exorbitant. I was skeptical when my wife told me what we would be paying, but, believe me, we received value commensurate with the cost. It is only three days into our new training methods and both of our dogs are performing remarkably well and their behavior has improved dramatically with us and when they come into contact with people and dogs as well. We still have a lot of work to do, but we now have a plan we are confident in and feel certain of attaining the results we desire. Matt teaches a great program and his skills as a teacher are excellent. Success with your dogs is there for the taking if you follow his instructions and are diligent and patient in your training.

Matt came to out home and showed us exactly how to work with our 1.5 year old Australian Shepherd. After he left he provided follow up notes and is available for additional support as needed. You won't find a more qualified and effective professional! More...

Matt is an amazing trainer. He worked with our dogs for 2 weeks. He trained us when our dogs were done. I think he had an easier time with our dogs. :) We learned things that were eye opening. Or dogs are now well behaved and balanced. Our home is calm. I would and will recommend Matt and Desert Cove K-9 to everyone. Thank you Matt for making our home a pleasant place with our furry family members again. More...

Super impressed with Matt!!! He was able to get my 4 month old puppy to behave so much better in 2 hours and leave me and my boyfriend feeling like we will be able to continue her training on our own. I highly recommend his services to anyone who wants a well trained dog as a part of their family! He is well worth the money and takes the time needed to explain things to both you and your dog.

Hands down best experience I have ever had with a dog trainer! Matt got my 5 month old dog to sit,down,stay,place,come all in about 3 hours!! Also my dog KoBe can be trusted to stay on the sidewalk without a leash and he just is very calm and listens to me! He also helped me with my 9 year old dog that was never trained to set boundaries on a leash she can now walk on a leash and not choke herself!! AMAZING!!! A++++ More...

Matt is a calm reasonable trainer. My puppy stays in place until I release him. I think he would stay all day!! My walk this morning with my other dog, that I used to call my drag, was very nice. She is very leash aggressive. She thought about it today, but quickly changed her mind. I have been putting up with this every day for 5 years! All of this done in
2 1/2-3 hours! I am a softy and he taught me how to behave also and it’s not that hard!

All I can say is "WOW"! Matt Small at Desert Cove K9 Training changed our lives in short order! Both of our dogs are well-behaved now. We never thought that was possible. They don't bolt out the door if another dog walks by while we're bringing in the groceries. They no longer bark incessantly when somebody rings the doorbell. They walk on the leash without pulling my wife up and down the sidewalk. It's just amazing. We can't thank Matt enough for what he has done for us! Call Matt now and don't wait for years like we did. It is so worth every penny! More...
