George Graves

Byrd has been great with our 2 German Shepherds. One of them is training 2 times a week and the other is doing the 30 day board and train program. I have been very happy with the results, and would definitely recommend him!

Justin Poritzky

Byrd is a true dog synergist, taking the time and making the effort to get to know each individual dog and their people. We highly value his connection vs. attachment approach and would recommend him to anyone looking to have that relationship with their dog. As he says, he’s a dog lover first, dog trainer second. It shows in every training exercise. We’re grateful for his help training our good boy to be a great boy!

Sarah Phillips

We met Byrd in the Lake Eola Farmers Market before we got our dog Ozzy. we had a few behavioral issues with him and them asked Byrd to help. The results even after 5 days are phenomenal. He coaches owners as much as our dog. I highly recommend Byrd to get your dog to be a good boy

Mark Phillips

First off, I met Byrd at the vet and I needed my bro with me to help keep my two dogs under control. When everyone in the waiting room saw my big boy and pulled back, Byrd was excited to see him! It was amazing seeing the transformation in my dogs thanks to him. He really got a feel for what they needed, especially what they need from me. Just as important as his training with the dogs, he let me know what I needed to tweak and work on. They were constantly barking at any sound they heard, chewing through whatever they could find, pulling on the leash, just doing whatever they pleased. Thanks to Byrd’s guidance they are completely different dogs now. You can see how much calmer and relaxed they are. They’re actually patient now and wait for my okay instead of charging at whatever they want. I would absolutely recommend Byrd for anyone that needs some help!!!! I can’t imagine how much I’d still be struggling if it hadn’t been for him!
