Dave and his wife are wonderful with all breeds of dogs and training. They have a stock of healthy foods, snacks, collars and leashes as well as grooming, and training classes. Dave helped me become a more confident dog owner in a society that discriminates against certain breeds and then, the owner. If anyone is in need of anything with their pet, besides vet check ups , I would encourage you to check out Dave's Doggie Den.

We use Dave’s doggie den for daycare, grooming, and training for our 1 year old labradoodle. Every time we pull into the parking lot, she gets so excited. Our dog loves it there and we have been very happy with the quality of their services.

Dave just called and harrassed and threatened me because I was upset that my dog was returned with the wrong collar. Wow. Just wow. The level of unprofessionalism is appalling.

Dave and Kristie are absolutely amazing! Please don’t listen to the recent reviews of the past 5 people in the last 24 hours. They clearly don’t understand that a simple review can drive someone to not come to an amazing facility based of false accusations. Shadow has been attending daycare every single day for over a year along with getting groomed every 2-3 months. If you want an amazing trainer who understands dog, or simply need your dog to come and hang out-Dave’s is the place to bring your furry kid! ❤️

Dave did a wonderful job with training with our English setter. He was professional and thorough. He made my husband and I feel welcomed and capable to continue training on our own from home!

My dog was taken here before I got him. The way they trimmed his nails he won’t let anybody near them to do it.

We were able to take both of our dogs for a one-on-one session with Dave. They are Moss (3yrs old) and Killian (4 years old). Moss has always had issues with insecurity and has started showing more inappropriate behavior that could lead to him biting someone or another animal. Killian had started picking up some of his behaviors. Dave was wonderful with them. He has the psychology down and is able to explain it clearly. The tools and techniques that he recommended have helped tremendously. Moss is becoming more confident and much HAPPIER! I have recommended Dave's Doggie Den to others and will continue to do so.

A trained dog is a better family member. No one gets great results like Dave.... he's a awesome dog trainer and had a fabulous mentor. Tons of experience and knowledge he can help you get a good base on your dog. And once you fall in love with your dogs new skills, you can keep going and advance,.

First day of training already made a huge difference. Highly recommend. My 7 month pit bull puppy was the loudest and most hyper dog of the group at first, but dave helped fix it right away. He does have more of a stern training style, but this is what I need for my soon to be 50-60 lb dog.

Dave knows what he's doing. Within 10 minutes of starting to work with our dog, he was doing exactly what we need him to do on leash.

Dave is a great, down to earth guy with years of experience working with dogs. He is very knowledgeable about everything when it comes to training dogs and caring for them and is the go to guy when you need your dog groomed. I highly recommend him for anybody that needs a doggie daycare, grooming, or training.
