I can train your dog

no problem is too big or too small, and no dog is beyond help. from potty training all the way up to aggression, whatever you need help with, I can fix it.


building confidence, strengthening your bond, and giving off leash freedom

problem behaviors

fixing problems, creating new habits, and restoring relationships

all breeds, all ages

all dogs welcome

i knew my search was over seconds after meeting him to help with my two young rottweilers. He is knowledgeable, patient, punctual, and took his time with different training methods that worked for my family’s lifestyle. bonus, I gained a wonderful friend out of the deal and my dogs absolutely love and respect him!

your new favorite dog trainer

evan smith

my goal as a dog trainer is to make sure the dog enjoys the training process and performs these new behaviors with heart and soul, while also educating the owner on how to live with, and train their best friend for long term success.

from my experience in fostering dogs and working with rescue organizations, to the sport and working dog worlds, I believe that I can help owners build stronger relationships with their canine family members. I want you and your dog to live a happy, healthy, and fulfilling lifestyle together. 

private sessions

for owners who want to be hands on and involved in the training every step of the way.  in a private session program you will learn how to train and live with your dog so that you and your dog can work together to achieve your goals and become a stronger team.

board and train

for owners who may not have the time to be hands on every step of the way. your dog will stay with me, in my home, for several weeks while receiving all the training they will need to achieve long term success when they return home. 


puppy Training


getting your puppy started off on the right paw is the best way to prevent problem behaviors from popping up, and to build a strong bond with your new best friend.  

evan spent about an hour and a half with us and our rescue, and our girl is now walking on a leash with ease and joy. She was terrified and would shake going out on a leash. She would just stand still shaking and I would have to pick her up and carry her to get her going. She’s super confident now. He really knows his stuff!
