Matt is honestly the best dog trainer you will ever have!!! Our 5-year-old Austrian Shepherd, Astro, was becoming a terror in our home. He was becoming too territorial whenever we had a guest over in the past year or so. He would try to assert his dominance by trying to either lunge or bite said, guest. We've had dogs before and have trained them ourselves but for some reason, Astro was not taking to the training. We were stressed to the point where we only had him out if it was someone, we knew he would get along with other than that he was crated for the majority of his time. After an unfortunate dog biting incident with a family friend, we decided to seek professional help for Astro. Matt and Candice have been the most gracious people I've met there were very accommodating with our work and school schedule to have Matt come out and do an evaluation of Astro. Of course, we were very nervous with how Astro would react with Matt and had him muzzled and leashed. Matt came in and Astro was not happy with his presence but with 5 minutes Astro calmed down and approached Matt. It has never been that easy with People coming into our home. Matt had an aura that jived with Astro and he immediately calmed down. The evaluation was very fruitful, and Matt was able to show us how to he would train Astro. By the time the evaluation was done we were convinced he was the right one for the job in training Astro. We signed up for the 2-week board and train so he could get the full extent of Matt’s training. By the time Astro came home, he was a completely different dog. It was as if his temperament and anger were never there and he was the fun, obedient dog we had before. I am no longer afraid to take him on walks or have people over. He basically ignores people who have no direct connection to me and will not approach unless I give him the go ahead. I highly recommend you try out At Whit’s End Dog Training. Matt is wonderful, and his wife is such a gem as well. If Astro ever needs a tune up, I would Call them in a heartbeat!
