My name is Dale and I am the CEO and Founder of Top Gun Dog Training. In 2008, while living in Alabama, I rescued this amazing 3 month old Lab Husky Mix named Spaulding. After working with many top dog trainers in the area and using the tools learned to train Spaulding, I finally created my own dog training company. I specialize in training puppies starting at 12 weeks old. More details here.
Over the past 12 years, I have been able to improve and hone my dog training skills to help friends train their own dogs. It was with this feedback and encouragement that I then decided it was time to make my services available to the public.
"We are over the moon with Top Gun Dog Training. From the initial consultation to our lessons, Dale has taught us SO MUCH about communicating with our 4 1/2 yo Goldendoodle rescue. Consistency, patience, and having a calm attitude has completely changed the way we interact with our dog. We are so pleased that we just purchased another set of 3 lessons. Thank-you Top Gun Dog Training! We thought we were experienced dog owners. Little did we know how much we had to learn. We could not be happier with your training, and most importantly our Doodle is thriving like she never has. Recommend all the way. AAAA++++"
