What people are saying!

  • Dans patience and understanding is not something I can put in to words. He has a genuine CARE for these dogs. It's kind of amazing how he listens to every concern and addresses it through the trainings... he not only spends the time to show a "vision of good" but his follow up shows that he wants you and your dog to be successful. I recommend Dan and Coastal K9 to anyone who has a dog (even older dogs) because he is honestly one of the best dog whisperers I've seen!

    You can definitely tell from the moment you meet Dan that he is extremely knowledgeable in the field of dog training. From the onset, his willingness to take the time to educate us (owners) on his principles as well as ongoing advice truly made us feel comfortable and excited to have our dog obedient, trained, and socialized. Dan used many real world scenarios when he trained my pup that I was able to use day one. I HIGHLY recommend giving Dan a call to train your canine whether they are a pup or an old timer. You won't regret it!

  • Dan is the best! He has been training my 1 year old Goldendoodle since he was 4 months old and I couldn't be more satisfied. He has done a fantastic job addressing my dog's anxiety issues and unwanted behaviors. Most importantly, he takes the time to explain why my dog acts a certain way, which helps me to reinforce everything we learn. I look forward to every session which continuously allows me to understand my dog and strengthen our bond.

    We could not be happier with the results of our training with Coastal K9. The combination of Dan’s training of our dog and the techniques he has given us to continue training on our own have turned our dog from a rambunctious puppy into the perfect dog.

    I used one on one training for multiple sessions with Dan. I had large dog that lacked confidence. In unfamiliar situations you didn't know if he was going to flight or fight. He helped me work with my dog on basic commands but more importantly help him become a more confident dog and looks to me on how to react. He now reacts confidently and has become more comfortable and relaxed in stressful situations.

    Dan is helping us train our 5 month old deaf puppy and is helping so much. She’s really responding and I never thought this much progress could be possible. We love him. Highly recommend.
