  • 5 star review  Bo is amazing! He is full of information. He was able to work with our puppy who is leash reactive, and get her to happily meet another dog is less than 40 minutes! So awesome! I am so thankful I found him to help us, especially since other trainers told us they couldn't.

  • positive review  There aren’t enough stars to leave to express how wonderful we think Bo is, and his training methods. We were ready to give up our 14 month Flatcoated Retriever. Through his kind training methods we now have a another family member. Thanks Bo A BILLION stars! The Battista Family

  • 5 star review  Bo helped my two scared Chihuahuas calm down and relax. They are happier and their anxiety is greatly reduced! I learned to read their body signals better, too. I'm so grateful to Bo for giving my dogs a better life.

  • positive review  I have nothing but good things to say about Bo and his training. I was feeling very helpless with my dog Duke and his behavioral issues and am very glad I found his website online. Bo came to our house to work with our dog Duke. He asked tons of questions to understand what we wanted out of the training, and to understand Duke and what his needs were as well. By the fourth session I had seen a ton of improvement with Duke, and also feel more confident having the tools to help set him up for further success. I highly recommend contacting Bo for any of your dog training needs!

  • positive review  We recently adopted two 2 year old beagles that have some behavior issues. We contacted Bo for help and he gave us a lot of techniques and tips for kind and force free training to address these issues. We are already seeing progress in them and would recommend Bo if you need help with your dog.

  • 5 star review  We had our fist class with Bo a few days after we brought Gytha home at 10 weeks. At 5 months, we're doing Bo's group class, and we're doing really well! Bo is an amazing trainer — sure, he's great with the dogs (he's their best friend, I'm not even chopped liver), but he's also great with people. If you're on the fence, just do it. As long as you put in the work, you and your dog will flourish with Bo's guidance.

  • 5 star review  Bo is a great trainer. He has been working with Ryder and I have seen a improvement beyond belief. Ryder is 6 months old now and is doing great on his training with Bo. Bo is very good at explaining things to us and makes it very easy to understand. If you need help with your Puppy I highly recommend Bo to help you. He not only trains your Pup he also trains you to be a better dog owner. It is nice to have a well behaved dog. Thank you Bo for helping us with Ryder!

  • 5 star review  Arnold is a 9 month old yellow lab mixed with husky. His energy is endless! 4 months ago I was getting complaints about my pup barking. 2 months ago I received behavior notes from Arnold’s day care. Since we started training with Bo we haven’t received any noise complaints and Arnold is able to go to two days at day care now. I’ve learned a lot from Bo. Arnold and I have a better bond now than we have before. I still have a lot of work to do but I have all of the tools I need thanks to Bo!

  • positive review  I would highly recommend Bo! I started to have no hope with my two chihuahuas until I met Bo. Not only did he help train my dogs but he helped me understand them better. It only took two training sessions for my dogs and now everyone that knew my dogs behavior issues and went around them before now comes around them with no problems and notices saying “Wow, training really did pay off.”

Imagine Your Dog Transforming Before Your Very Eyes

See why my training is the Best

Achieve Resonance and Responsiveness
through Science and Love

You never have to use intimidation, fear, pain, or violence to motivate your dog ever again.

The newest wave of science-based dog training is force free and pain free.

You, too, can learn how to train a dog and address problem behaviors by leveraging the most recent advances in canine learning theory and motivating your dog from the inside-out.

It’s not “just a dog”. It’s your beloved family member. And your canine companion deserves the deepest love and best care you can offer.

Frequently Asked Questions

My service area is up to a 20-minute drive. Beyond that, we can still work together, but I charge an additional fee up to a 45-minute drive. I hesitate to go beyond that (but we may be able to negotiate something if it’s critical). Remember, I can work with you anywhere in the world over Google Meet.

Typically, other trainers offer private lessons that run between 45 minutes and an hour. My standard private sessions for my Dog Training Anywhere Program (over Skype) run at least an hour. The exception here is my Introduction to Puppies class, which runs at least 1 hour and 30 minutes. (If you sign up for classes in your home I will need to be more mindful of the time and stick closer to the hour or hour and a half time limit since I need to schedule for travel time.) The bottom line is that you can expect extra face-to-face time with me compared to most dog trainers.

I can’t answer that until  I know more about your training needs. 

This is why I offer a free 30-minute phone conversation (as opposed to the norm which is charging for an assessment). During that call I will give you options and tell you what I think is best. It doesn’t cost you anything and it’s risk-free since you are under no obligation to hire me for services. You can click here to set that up. 

That being said, what I can do is give you a ballpark figure. In-home sessions cost about $75 for a single session, and my  Dog Training Anywhere Program (which is my economy program over Google Meet) costs about $45 for a single session. Compare that to the typical in-home private dog training rate with other trainers that averages $100–$125 per session. Furthermore, if you commit up front to buy a package, you will reduce the per-session cost.

Overall, you will find my rates are far below the standard for private dog training. 

Contact me and we’ll work something out based on what you can afford.

Schedule Your Free 30-Minute Phone Call to Assess Your Needs

Let’s talk about how I can help you. It’s on my dime and you are not obligated to sign up, so there’s no risk for you. Just contact me through the form, tell me about your dog and the issues you face. Then, we’ll schedule the call.

If you are looking for a dog trainer near you, my business is based in Beloit, WI. My in-home service area includes Janesville, WI, Elkhorn, WI; South Beloit, IL; Rockton, IL, Roscoe, IL, Rockford, IL, and the nearby areas. If you are farther than that, I can still work personally with you online through my Dog Training Anywhere (online dog training) program.
