I always wanted a dog I could take anywhere. After learning the 10 Minute Dog techniques, and working with Sophie, our Sheltie, I'm happy to say we can go anywhere with her now and not worry. Bruce and the 10 Minute Dog program really allows us to enjoy our four-legged family members so much more. Thank you. Thank you.

Thank you.

Bruce is an excellent Dog Trainer. He develops a bond and rapport with dogs that are quite rare and effective. I've seen his work first hand and can tell you that he shows patience and understanding. I suggest you check him out.

I have an English Springer Spaniel that loves to hunt…the problem was, he loved it too much and would not behave in the field. All the commands were solid at home and during training sessions away from the field. I contacted Bruce, and with one week of work w/ him, I now have an excellent Upland Hunting Dog that I enjoy hunting with. Thanks, Bruce, for all your help in the making my dog experience an excellent one!!!!!!!! I recommend this program to everyone who has a dog. Thank you!

After not having a dog for 14 years, we were very apprehensive about undertaking a new one at our ages--70 & 72!. Bruce helped us train our dog to our situation and make Seta an obedient and devoted pet. At 8 months of age, she's calm and a delight to have.

Hi Bruce,

I just wanted to thank you again for the dog lesson yesterday. I am still stunned at Ellie's beautiful new leash manners, and I feel good giving her the mental workout she's been missing. I even showed my husband last night and she remembered everything. Thank you also for the reading material.

Thank you so much for helping us with Spike. You are so talented and really a pleasure to work with. If you ever need references, please feel free to contact me. I will refer you to all my friends ( I only have two, so don't get too excited 😉

Thanks again,

I never really understood the whole concept of "pack mentality" and what it really means to a dog. We went to several trainers without success. 10 Minute Dog's approach starts with understanding how your dog fits into the family "pack". Bruce knows how to use this knowledge to teach you how to train your dog. They aren't kidding! After I knew what I had to do, it literally took only 10 minutes a day for about a week to get a well-behaved and happy dog.

Bottom line: Expert level knowledge, works for and achieves measurable results. Bruce was able to recognize my dog's natural abilities early on and helped develop them directly while also teaching me to continue to work with the dog in his absence. Knowledgeable, personable, and ethical. A great combination! He comes highly recommended.

The program and Bruce are terrific. One of the best features is that Bruce and the 10 Minute Dog folks are always available for a free follow-up and continued support.

Bruce is very thorough, professional, and knowledgeable. He's great to work with and very hands-on. He makes a difficult task very enjoyable. I will refer him to anybody I know!

Bruce: You are a great communicator--Thank you for all your extra time. Your help gave me the understanding and tools I needed to guide Penny to become the perfect dog!

We were ready to give up on Cody until we met you. Group Training was not helping. Within the first half-hour, I could see him responding to your training techniques. It was not long after--with consistent practice--that Cody became the obedient dog we needed him to be. Thank you for helping to turn things around. We're really enjoying Cody not and couldn't have gotten there without your help!

Before, we never understood the importance or rules of pack mentality. That really helped us with Piper and the other dogs. We are so pleased with the results. Thank you.

Thank you so much for all of your help with Emily. I thought you would like to know that she was SO upset that you left yesterday; she took the shock and ran down the street after your car. She looked at us first and decided she liked you better – Lucky for us, she eventually got distracted by the neighbor's dog, so we were able to catch her! Just thought you would like to know you will be missed!

This was the first experience we have had with any trainer, and frankly, it exceeded my expectations. What really stood out was how [Bruce] managed to get the lessons across to me while making sure my father was included in the conversation. It has been a great success, and I am comfortable knowing that I can contact you in the future.

I just wanted to take a moment and express my appreciation and thanks to you for your all your time and knowledge that you have shared with me as my mentor for ABC. I have really enjoyed working alongside you for the past two months. Your dedication to your trade, your clients and especially to the dogs you work with at D.A.W.S has been a real inspiration to me as well as a real motivating factor to be the best dog trainer I can be. I am looking forward to a continued relationship with you in the days, months and years to come. I was happy to hear that you have picked up a couple of new students from ABC, the school is extremely fortunate to have you as a mentor trainer.

Thanks again for everything,

I would like to try to thank you for the time and patience you have extended to me during the mentorship portion of Animal Behavior College.

YOU MADE IT FUN! Your clear and concise answers to the questions posed to you actually work! Your communication skills exemplify yet another incredibly adept talent of yours, and to be sure, that includes the four-leggeds and the two-leggeds!

I found your good energy both engaging and contagious. Your leadership and experience are thoroughly convincing, and I would always recommend you to those challenges that I don't feel equipped to handle. Isn't that what a great mentorship is supposed to render?

It seems to me that you are at the top of your game and i wish you every happiness that comes with making this world of ours a little bit more tolerable one 10 Minute Dog at a time!

Thank you Bruce for your generous and bountiful willingness to share information that will hopefully make me a better trainer. I hope we will always stay in touch.

My dog has a new lease on life! She couldn't be around other dogs--EVER. Now I can let the leash go at a dog park. Our relationship (mine & my dog's) has grown tremendously. I've learned so much about her, and she respects me so much more. I found you online when looking for a trainer in my area dealing with aggression. I feel very lucky for this experience. I have and will continue to recommend you to anyone!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"Our dog was very shy and "afraid of its own shadow." She just didn't seem very happy. The 10 Minute Dog's approach and Bruce's positive energy and expertise gave us the tools we needed to get our dog out of her shell and enjoy life. Once we understood her issues, we spent a mere 10 minutes a day twice a day to work on them. We're happy to say she now approaches the world with her tail up and a sparkle in her eye. I highly recommend The 10 Minute Dog."
