Trisha Qualio “” Doggy Dan really understands dogs and the 5 Golden Rules are great if you want to teach your dog in a kind way. He really does have every video and information for all dog problems. I just got a German Shepherd mix puppy and have installed the rules right away. He is a very happy playful dog and the project Moses videos have really showed me what to expect and how to handle everything. Thank you!

Vishal Kashyap “” I love it! The videos are explained in a concise manner and tells almost everything about dominating dog behavior. If you are looking to control, manipulate or correct your dog & puppy behavior, look no further than Doggy Dan!

Ransom Patterson “” I just rescued a heeler/husky last week and already seeing a huge difference she was a good dog to begin with but now she comes when called, doesn’t pull on the leash, sits and lays down when I want. She is just in general happier all around and so am I really the 5 golden rules made a good dog awesome.

Maureen Dillon O’Connell “” The 5 Golden Rules are awesome & easy to apply. My 1 yr old Cockapoo was a very picky eater (my bad) & starting to be a real barker ….things are soooo much better now. When i put down his bowl …he eats….it took a few days for him to change his attitude but it’s working. I have definitely changed my way of doing things & he has responded in a positive manner. We are a work in progress but on the right track. Thank you Dan!!

Marini Nettle “” Our dogs are responding really well to the 5 Golden Rules. Doggy Dan has given us the tools to deal with any situation that may arise and the online forum help is great when we have a specific question. The videos are fantastic and so easy to understand that even my kids (aged 10 and 14) have no problem understanding and applying the rules. I would happily recommended Doggy Dan to anyone and have already been recommending him to friends. Cheers Dan!

Alison Leigh “” Have been working on the Golden Rules for 3 months now and the initial, remarkable difference in my dogs behavior has been sustained. Issues are now only over enthusiastic visitors, so now iI need to continue training them! Jess is not super friendly, but she no longer rushes at people on their arrival and given her space and ignored, she is nearly perfect, wow! Thanks Dan.

Lynn Heisler “” Doggy Dan truly understands dogs – a behaviorist with class, knowledge, kindness and caring. He has unending patience and never gives up. Doggy Dan is really and truly one of a kind!

Debbie Thompson “” Really simple rules that work quickly and easily. We have only just started but can see the improvement already. Thanks!

Sara Byrnes “” I totally love Doggy Dan… and his training methods! I even bought a couple of months for my daughter and her family. They have a 1 year old border collie/lab mix and he tries very hard to be the pack leader in every situation. I have an 11 week old female border/lab mix. I think I have watched every video and also everything on the forum. We are trying our best to implement the 5 Golden Rules in our whole family system and have already seen a lot of benefit in the 1 year old and the puppy. I feel my puppy is getting off to a great start, even though she can be a little rascal at times. I really appreciate the video’s because Dan’s calm demeanour helps me to remain calm when dealing with situations. Thanks for all your insight and contribution to the relationships between doggies and their people!

Kim Maurer “” I recently adopted a three-month-old chihuahua and have found Dan’s videos and methods to be very helpful. It’s been many years since I trained a puppy and I’ve never had one this small. Establishing myself as the pack leader right from the start and using Dan’s Five Golden Rules has set the stage for a great relationship with our new family member. I look forward to using more of Dan’s methods as we start more training.

Doggy Dan’s site is truly amazing with over 250 videos inside. So if you really want to have a dog that you can be proud of look no further, simply take the 3 day $1 trial inside Doggy Dan’s site.

Toni Bennett “” My English Staffy Bull Terrier of 15 years who was brought up with my youngest daughter sadly died approx 3 weeks ago. I lasted 2 days before wanting to add a new addition to the family as i’ve had dogs since i was 16 years and found the hole left with Megs passing was unbearable. I decided that as i had previously had a german shepherd i would like another one although black this time. I love the intelligence and general personality of the breed. So the next thing i needed to think about was training. It had been 15 years since i had a puppy and i needed a refresher of the basics. I put google to good use and after 2 days of extensively searching noticed that “Doggy Dan” popped up time and again. I was hooked before i commenced the 3 day trial, just from surfing the site. The training concept totally makes sense, is simple to follow and is very different from the training i had learnt in the past. All my previous dogs have been well trained and long lived but this training is so much easier and logical. I spent the last week intensively sucking up all the information i could from the ‘doggy dan” website in preparation of the new puppy’s arrival. The laptop was hooked up to the tv and husband and daughter watched the 5 rules so we were all on the same page. The payoff has been instant. Jett arrived from Christchurch airport yesterday. He’s 8 weeks old, about the size of a cat and bright as a button. In the 24+ hours from leaving the breeder he’s had a drive of 1 1/2 hours to Christchurch airport, 1 1/2 hours flight to auckland, 40 minute drive home via the vets where he was microchipped, vaccinated and checked over. He took it all in his stride, tail wagging the whole time. We had a rough night last night as we didn’t get him home until about 530pm we had little time to get him used to his new crate for sleeping. . He’s a bright little pup, already understands the concept of “go toilet”. We have found by applying the rules, specifically the ignoring him one that he is already relaxed and chilled out. Today he has had a couple of sleeps in his crate and goes in and out freely, by the midday he was no longer following us around but staying in the lounge chilling out. He is already coming when called when we take him outside to the toilet (the changing direction, stopping, turning your back really works!!!!!) He’s met the neighbours cat and the dog next door (over the fence) and was chilled out and relaxed. Thanks Doggy Dan, so glad i found your site. What a great start!!!!

Alysa Wakefield “” we’ve only just started, and i feel a sense of change already, it’s not a quick process with my shih tzu x but i feel like we’re a lot calmer , happier and enjoying being obedient already!

Karen Cooper “” Hey Dan, I started with your free videos a couple of weeks ago and have now signed up and am really enjoying going through the info on your website. I have implemented the 5 golden rules and am already noticing a difference. My dog used to always be jumping up all over the ranch slider when I got up in the morning or when I got home at night, she now knows she has to sit quietly outside before I let her in. My friends know to ignore her and not to talk to her when they come over or we meet up with them elsewhere and she is slowly learning not to jump up on them. The gesture eating is also going really well. I have really noticed a change! We’ll keep all of this going and I’m sure the digging and chewing outside will also eventually go away as well. It’s amazing how differently I now view her behaviour. What I previously interpreted as happiness to see me and excitement, I now know is her trying to assert herself as pack leader. Thanks for your help so far!

Christina Glantschnig “” I just adopted an adult dog from a shelter and Dan has helped me a lot with welcoming her in my home! His website is amazing – all the videos really help make the message stick. He’s extremely helpful and you can even post questions in his forum which he’ll answer to personally. I can recommend his training program without reservations!!!

John Torres “” My family and I recently adopted a puppy and have not had very much success with puppies in the past. I found doggie Dan’s website by doing a Google search, and realized does this really work? I looked at some of the videos during my trial and it seemed to me that just learning the pack leader situation and the following of the simple rules wouldn’t really work. But I figured I would give it a shot and at least see. So I purchased a membership and started looking at the first section which was the pack leader section. I tried to explain to my family about the establishment of being a pack leader and how we had to show them that we are the pack leaders, they all laughed and said there is no way and for me not to believe everything on the internet. After a few days establishing i am the pack leader, I was now the only person in my family that could go into a room with the puppy and not have the puppy cry,put the puppy to sleep without having him cry, and even have him follow My Commands. I still had one problem and needed help. I called and actually spoke to Dan himself, he was amazing. You know his methods must work when someone from the United States calls another country because your methods work better than anyone else. for all of the skeptics who don’t believe he is a real person… he is, And not to mention one of the nicest guys I’ve ever talked to. They are not a lot of people in the US, who will give you a number to contact them whenever you have a problem.

Laura Cosio Barto “” Hi ! I am Laura from Mexico City and I want to share the success I have accomplished with my dogs. I am working on avoiding the barking every time a person walks by. I started saying Thank you, and what happen was that one of the three kept on making noises, so she went to the time out, I think that it was putting her in time out, that the other two, just watched me and kept quiet !!!! It was so funny and amazing !!! Also I want to share, that browsing through the internet, I found many websites, but Dan, was the only one, that shows us the best way to treat our dogs, in a nonviolent and consistent way. I knew in my heart that there had “to be a better way”. Thank you!

Penny Light “” Doggy Dan has made a MASSIVE ,amazing impact on the lives of myself and my 2 dogs. 4yr old Lab X ‘Abbey” and 2 yr old rescue Great Dane “Moose”. I have raised Abbey since a puppy using Dan’s methods of training(following a home consult and when she showed some emerging behavioral issues as a 5 month old)since then she has been a happy,calm,balanced obedient amazing dog. Abbey has played a massive role in the rehab of my rescue Dane ‘Moose’ when I recently brought him home,with her calming influence,together with applying Dan’s 5 golden rules- he is now a completely different dog.He arrived with many behavioural issues and terrified of everything.He had been hit frequently by a previous male owner,had rarely been walked ,never on a lead and showed fear aggression to other dogs and men.Amazingly by simply establishing myself as the Pack leader by apply the 5 golden rules ,I have rarely had to target any problem behaviour specifically and they are now almost all resolved. It is only on the walk where I occasionally have to use some of Dan’s calming techniques(learnt on his online training video)of ‘stop-start’ lead work if he encounters an aggressive dominant dog, but overall he is now just like my Lab and able to happily be just a dog..calm, confident, obedient, balanced and happy…no longer in the grip of fear. THANK YOU SOOO MUCH DAN!!!!

Raewyn Anderson “” Doggy Dan has helped considerably with my understanding of how to be a Pack Leader. Despite years owning dogs the “food control” help was perfect and not something I had realised was so important. Such a simple and kind way of behaving to get such good results – thank you so much. My older dog who I thought was fussy about food was not fussy but trying to be Pack Leader. He now eats everything in front of him and leaves nothing. The younger ones are still not the best on leads and around the cats but the stop, change direction method is slowly getting through. I show my dogs and the advice I am reading about is so applicable to every situation we can have with our dogs. Thank you so much.

Emily Assiran “” We adopted Louis a couple months ago from the SPCA. He’s a very energetic 2 year old pit bull mix and as sweet and lovable as he is, he desperately needed some training so that we can all live happily together. After using the 5 Golden Rules taught by Doggy Dan each day is getting better and better! The difference on walks, to when we leave the house has vastly improved since we started implementing Doggy Dan’s teaching techniques. I especially enjoy the fact that all of his training methods are nonviolent and teaches you how to calmly and effectively train your dog. It is particularly helpful with people like us who have a dog that was rescued from a neglectful and abusive previous owner. I suggest him to other owners at the dog park all the time when they compliment us on our dogs demeanor and I even suggested Doggy Dan to my vet tech after she told me she wished her pit was as well behaved as ours! I was very happy and proud of my pup and all of our hard work when I heard that!

Bernadette Fagan “” Dan’s on-line videos are excellent, and they cover such a wide range of issues & problems faced by dog owners. He’s enthusiastic and positive, and most importantly…his method works. Our border collies are 7 yr old brothers, & best of friends. But in the last couple of years, they’d begun displaying aggression towards each other, & occasionally fighting. In the 4 weeks we’ve been applying the 5 Golden Rules, they have settled down significantly. No more fights, and a steady decline in aggressive behaviour. The “calm freeze” especially, has been particularly effective on them. We totally recommend Doggy Dan’s .

Christine Stoetzel “” When our gorgeous girl Mira came quite unexpected in our lives at 12 weeks old, I was desperate to find someone to help me, since I had a cat the past 16 years and not much experience with dogs. Living in a very rural part of Spain puppy training schools were not available and the only local dog trainer , well let’s say …was not available either. Searching the net as my other source of knowledge, I came across Dan’s site and can only say that it was a great help. For three months I was nearly looking at it on a daily base. Now my girl is 7 1/2 months and we get compliments wherever we go what a well behaved and balanced dog she is. Like the two people before me I ran into some financial tight spot and had to cancel, but thanks to Dan we now have a base from which to go on. If I get into problem now that the teenage years are starting, I will somehow scrape the dough together and join up again. Looking in Mira’s loving brown eyes tells me “She’s worth it”.

Barbara Kelly “” I am completing my 3rd day w/Doggy Dan and I am so delighted w/the progress. I will be staying with this program as long as it takes. Dan’s videos and follow up comments are absolutely the tools I have been searching for. My precious dog, Pater had become so aggressive I was living in constant fear of him hurting someone. I have literally been locked in my house and tiny little yard for weeks, but continued trying to walk him one block while being dragged everywhere and battling to hold him around other dogs and people while on a leash. He is a very large and strong dog and it was very difficult. Where I live in the country of Panama it is almost impossible to find a home for an aggressive dog and no trainers that I can find. I had been looking at hundreds of videos and purchased an online program, but found it to be of little use. The more i searched the more confusing it became.I begin to think that there may be no option but to have my Pater put to sleep. I was in despair and decided to search one more time for online help and ran across Doggy Dan. It is so wonderful to see the improvements in just this three day period. Dan, you have the gift. Thank you so much for making it into such a clear and concise teaching method.

Craig Wilson “” Doggy Dan’s site is well worth looking at. The ‘positive training’ approach is great and has helped me deal with all my dogs in a more understanding and relaxed manner. Just like Jennifer, my financial circumstances at the moment prohibit me from continuing with my subscription. However I would highly recommend the site to others.

Jennifer McKinlay “” Dan’s website has helped us out quite a bit. Very informative and was what we needed. Unfortunately with our circumstances we couldn’t afford the monthly payments so had to cancel our subscription 🙁 I really enjoyed the videos showing us how to put everything into practice. Our dog has become a lot calmer but there is still a very long way to go to socialise her. Unfortunately we will have to go by memory on what we have already learnt. I would definitely recommend Doggy Dan to everyone, and I already have suggested him to all those I know with dogs 🙂

Russell Smith “” Having Dan round to help us with our puppy Reggie was a good plan! It was calm, fun, entertaining and in no way felt like being schooled. I’d eagerly and happily recommend Dan’s work to anyone in need of assistance with an unruly dog or to someone like us who wanted to simply get the best start possible out of a puppy. Looking forward to watching the videos 🙂

Vicky McCutcheon “” what a great way to train your dog/pup very helpful and you can re- watch If you forget, to be able to do the training in your own home is a real bonus. I am still enjoying getting my videos for the next step in training my pup.

Mike Kerrigan “” Dan, I just want to say how thankful I am that I found your video training. I tried two other dog trainers, and bought 2 DVDs, but Winston was still too aggressive. Now he’s playful and calm again, and that’s after just 3 days!!!!!!. I feel like your training helped me understand him. Brilliant work, I will recommend to everyone! – Cheers, Mike X

Andrew Wetmore “” We just wanted to email you and say thank you! We called you about 8 months ago after we got a Huntaway puppy who promptly had a melt down when we put him in his crate the first time. Although we didn’t have you out for a consultation we watched all of the videos on your website about 4 times!:) We always had the intention of doing a one on one consultation but the tricks online worked so well we have had no problems with him. Everyone warned us that a Huntaway was not a good pet as he would bark incessantly, chew everything etc. etc. He has never chewed anything he wasn’t supposed to, and he barks when people come to the door and stops as soon as we say “thank you”. He really is a lovely dog, he requires tons of exercise (but I am a runner so he gets all he needs), so he is calm and relaxed in the house. He is lovely with children, other dogs, and small animals. The only issue we had was a bit of food aggression early on which was quickly corrected with your videos and now we can take raw bones off of him with no issue. I just wanted to give you this feedback as I really believe a combination of consistent hard work and the tools you provided us with meant the difference between a domesticated nightmare and a lifelong companion. Copernicus is now 10 months old, and as any young dog does, he tests us but is quickly redirected, loyal and fun to be with. So, thank you so much!!!

Lori Smith “” Our mom has been watching your videos and teaching us all kinds of great new things this week and boy, are we ever grateful! Before, we had to bark and bark and bark at everything and everyone that went by our house, but now Mom thanks us for warning her and then lets us off duty as soon as we woof just once …. sometimes twice if we’re very worried … and we can get right back to sleeping! Before your videos we all went in different directions and tied our leashes up in knots every time we went outside. It made everyone very nervous and it sure made Mom yell! Now we walk on pieces of thin rope instead of those dumb retractable leashes and we almost never pull anymore! The BEST thing is that since we stopped growling and barking and getting mohawks at people in town who walk by the house when we’re outside, they’re not so afraid of us that they cuss and cross the street anymore! Thanks, Doggy Dan! We thought this human would never figure out how to be a dog!

Susan Rodhe “” Thank you again for your reply – I would LOVE to get a copy of your book when avail – and you could let me know how and when it would work for you – Thank you so much!! I do appreciate your info re the training site – this is exactly why I keep the membership – even if I go back and watch and pickup something that I missed. I used the greeting guests videos from the site at the holidays and actually picked up something that I totally missed the first round of watching. I love the 5 golden rules and only wish I had known about them and Doggy Dan when he was a puppy as he is now 5. I am glad to know the blog is “generic” helpful training tips while the site is his method. You all are so wonderful and helpful – this is one reason I tell everyone that has a dog about Doggy Dan and his 5 golden rules!! Thanks again – and we can keep in touch regarding the book – Blessings to all!!
