We have a brand new dog! Before Matt's program, our dog (Clemmie) would lash out at strangers due to insecurity. She was scared of most noises and new places. Matt, the owner of Tame Dog Training transformed Clemmie in 17 days. I was skeptical that Clemmie could be ridded of her old habits and insecurities, yet she has a brand new, bold personality. Clemmie now stays with me during the day at my office and greets new clients, as well as walks near busy Dallas streets with ease. The most important part of Matt's training is what a good teacher he is to humans. He helped us understand how dogs communicate by inviting us to his business for hands on training with Clemmie. Matt also offered reading materials as well as follow up classes for us and the dog after the program ended. He really goes above and beyond and I would recommend his class to any dog owner. Thank you so much, Matt! More...

A little over a year ago we sent our beautiful Mini Australian shepherd to Matt.
Now if you know anything about Aussies, it's their way or the high way.
Matt did an amazing job taking our hyper puppy and making her into a well behaved dog!
We cannot thank Matt enough. We get so many compliments from other dog parents about how well behaved she is and we own it all to Matt /Tame.
We will continue to use the tools that he gave us as she gets older.
If you are looking for a dog trainer, stop wasting your money else where and put it towards training with Matt!

I just want to say Thank you Matt
For changing our lives,Boomer is a much better dog because of you.
He was aggressive towards other people and very protective of me.
We went thru two other trainers before you came along.
I highly recommend you and we will call you when we get our next dog.

I've had a great experience with Matt and Tame Dog Training! Really had good results when I got Silas back, and Matt has continued to follow-up with me to make sure I fully understand how to use the training at home every day. Super excited to keep getting closer with Silas. I can trust that he will listen to me when we are out and about. He is less anxious and seems like a happier, healthier dog. More...

Thank you Matt for the outstanding results from a short period of time that will last Prescott a lifetime. Not to mention training Mike and I as well was much needed. The tools and advice he gave us to further train our 9 month old dog is priceless. The fact that TAME is not a train and see ya later kind of place. Every question we have had after training Matt has answered and walked us through it. Love the follow up training at our home to correct what "we" have been doing wrong. Thank you Matt for giving us a priceless gift! More...

My wife and I were lucky enough to be Matt's first clients, and our experience with him was first class! After adopting Bodhi, we had tried some simple training methods and he just wasn't catching on, but with Matt's help, we saw a complete transformation, and to this day continue to get compliments on how well behaved and trained he is. Matt's approach is easy to follow and produces immediate results. I can't recommend Tame enough to any dog owner who wants control of their animal (which should be all dog owners!). More...

In the last year, my wife and I have added two sweet golden retrievers to our family. Their names are Annie and Jovi and are an absolute joy. They are always happy to see us, and won’t leave our side for anything. They are a shining example of loyalty and unconditional love, but they are still puppies. They chewed on thing after thing, shredded books and destroyed couch cushions.

With our first child on the way, something had to change. We gave Matt a call, described all that was going on, and scheduled a time to drop off the pups for training.

Matt was awesome to work with. He was professional, tender and educated us on how to communicate with our dogs. Our dogs are far from perfect, but the change we’ve seen in them has been incredible. If you have a pup and want a well-trained dog, give Matt a call.

We have a beautiful little golden doodle (Phoebe), but she was incredibly full of anxiety and ENERGY! Not to mention the several accidents that she would have inside of the house on a daily basis.

After 2 weeks with Matt, we didn't even recognize her personality (in the best way possible)!!

We can now successfully go on walks, keep her in a kennel for several hours at a time while we run errands, and so much more! My favorite is that she actually follows the simple commands that we speak. Our relationship with her is so much sweeter because the anxiety and stress are absent!

It might sound silly, but this experience has been life changing for all of us!

Thank you Matt!

Matt is not only an excellent dog trainer but patient and helpful in communicating and allowing you to practicing what he has accomplished so that the owner can actually continue with the training with confidence and expertise. We had great results for a dog a labeled as dog aggressive after he was taken into our Labrador Retriever Rescue in the metroplex by placing him with Matt for a 2-week Board & Train. I took him home after the training as my foster and he was great in my home with my Lab, eager to train and adopted within a couple of weeks. Matt loves working with dogs and it is apparent. More...

I have a rescue german shepherd that had a history of aggression with both people and dogs. After a couple incidents, I began to worry this dog was going to be too much for me. I was nervous introducing him to people and other dogs and never thought I'd be comfortable off leash in public with him. Two weeks after getting him back, my feelings have completely changed. I now feel like I can take Buster anywhere and have complete control and confidence with him. Matt's training has been a blessing for Buster and me, and I can't recommend him enough. I'm able to do things with my dog I never thought would be possible and our bond has grown even stronger. The one-on-one sessions with Matt gave me the ability to train and work with Buster myself and it is incredibly rewarding seeing the results. Also Matt has continued to have great communication and taking time to fully explain things anytime I've had a question. It is evident how much he cares about clients and their dogs and I believe his training was truly the best investment for Buster and me. More...

Tame Dog did an amazing job with our Labradoodle Zoe. The two week session has truly changed our lives. Zoe now plays under control in the front yard, is a joy to walk and even potties on command! Matt knows his stuff and is a true professional. Zoe no longer jumps on strangers and Matt’s methods and tools even has our kids involved in her training.

I could not recommend this service more.

Matt is awesome with dogs! We sent two of our dogs to him for the 2 week board and train program. These dogs have some deep rooted issues with anxiety and fear, and Matt was so incredible with them. Luke, our super fearful rescue, does not take to new people easily at all. He still runs from family that he sees often. Matt was able to get Luke to eat food and treats out of his hand, approach him tail wagging, easily go in and out of his crate, and walk like a champ on a leash! He also learned obedience commands and has been such a calmer dog since coming home. Our other dog, Bodhi, is anxiety driven to a degree our vet didn't even know how to treat. Now, he will hold place for hours - and is so much easier to work with and manage. I highly recommend Matt and his services. There isn't a magic trick to turn each dog into a perfect soldier - but, I guarantee that you will see significant improvements with your dogs, even for those with severe challenges like mine! You won't be disappointed! More...

Matt is a dog guru!

We finally said 'yes' to getting a dog. Enter Blitz, 4 months old, adorable German Shepherd, very well-tempered from the beginning. Our concern was how to not fail him as a family and how best to incorporate him into our lives, not the other way around! That's where Tame Dog Training came in. Highly recommended by some good friends, Matt met Blitz at our home and worked with us on the basics of creating structure until Blitz was old enough for his Board and Train session. After which, our pup came home focused, able to sit on his 'place' for 30 mins, and ready to continue learning. We feel like we have the happiest, trained dog in the neighborhood thanks to Tame Dog Training.

Matt's knowledge about how and why dogs behave and learn is invaluable. He's a wizard at creating and teaching the structure upon which dogs develop and thrive. Soak it up, it's a crash course in psychology and you and your dog will be all the better for it.

Words cannot describe the difference in our Airedale’s behavior. If we had looked for several years, we would not have found a more knowledgeable “dog and dog owner whisperer.” Matt is the entire package because when it comes to training it is not just the animal that needs to be trained, the owners need to be trained as well. Matt was able to determine the things that Beau needed, as far as training was concerned. He offered tips on training and how to have your dog respond with urgency to your commands. Matt also offers information that is extremely helpful for the overall health and nutrition of your dog. We are blessed to have Matt as a resource to make subsequent training adjustments in our home environment. These words do not do justice to our experience with Matt! We love him More...
