Duane helped me train my rescue pup over the phone. Imagine what he can do in person with your dog! His approach to training is so effective and I am so happy he is coming back to California!

Mary Alongi

Duane is an amazing trainer. He literally changed my dogs behavior overnight. He is absolutely amazing kind and carrying. My dogs have become a well mannered social pack that I can take to any location without fear of any bad behavior.

Laurie Goldstein

Duane got our unruly dogs in line and made walking them a pleasurable experience. I never thought my dog would ever stop pulling. He also got my maladjusted chocolate lab to socialize much better. Duane is the best!

April Grossinger

Duane is an excellent trainer of dogs and relates very well to the dog owners. He is a responsible person who shows up on time and does what he says he is going to do. Our dogs love and respect him.

Duane Overturf

Southern California’s Most Experienced Personal Dog Trainer

Duane’s dog training career began in high school during the 1970’s but prior to that Duane’s parents required Duane to take his first dog, a Samoyed named Frosty, to a local dog training course being offered at Pierce College. It was taught by a retired military dog trainer and Duane’s dog passed the class with flying colors. From that day on Duane was hooked on training dogs.
