Erik and Anthony are wonderful! Erik has been an immense help in training our pup, Enzo. Enzo is calm, well behaved on walks with us - and has developed strong recall skills. Both Erik and Anthony are super-dependable, which has been incredibly helpful when we are working from home.

I highly recommend Erik at Dog Gone Smarter! I got a sweet Mastiff/Pitbull rescue dog named Tucker almost three years ago and I had taken him to training classes and worked with him a lot. He was good, but still had a lot of anxiety around walks, the doorbell, riding in the car and meeting other dogs. I saw Erik's sign near Tanasbourne and called. I was a little frustrated with how my dog, Tucker, was behaving and Erik could tell. Erik took the lead (pun intended) and really started working with Tucker and I noticed improvements right away. There were steps forward and then back, but Tucker is such a different dog now and it's only been a few months. Erik is kind, calm, a good leader, he is a great teacher and explains how my dog is thinking to help me understand how to be a better pack leader for my dog. We are working on Tucker in the car now and lowering his stress (and my stress) so that Tuck can enjoy going places. I can't say enough good things about Erik. He is punctual, a good communicator, and most importantly he understands dogs and their humans and is able to help them both. I might have been more of a mess when I first met Erik than my dog was, but Erik helped Tucker and gave great, kind, helpful guidance to me, too. You can't find a better dog trainer out there.

I have a wonderful rescue dog that needs to learn to trust strangers. The training she has received has been gentle and kind. She has already started showing a level of trust and calm I wasn't sure I'd ever see in her after only a few lessons. Highly recommend!

I have a 6 month standard poodle /Malinois mix who is super smart playful and full of energy. We needed some help with training I was referred to DonegoneSmarter. Anthony and Eric are awesome trainers they provided our pup with the training that will shape him into an amazing dog. We have seen so much improvement in the last few weeks it is helping our daily walks easier and more enjoyable. I would highly recommend!!!

Erik is fantastic with my dog. He has helped me so much in training my dog, Colt and I wish I had used his services much sooner. Erik has made both of us more more confident and strengthened our bond. It doesn't feel like a chore to walk him anymore. I would definitely suggest Erik to anyone out there. Thank you Erik!!!

I’ve watched Erik take a large Rottweiler from a state of fear and aggression barely restrained by his owner - to a calm, relaxed on-his-back puppy in less then 15 minutes. The owner - Erik, is a true dog whisper! And he does it all with a look, a whisper and few soft spoken gestures. Dog Gone Smarter is truly amazing!
