Connor has been working with us since 2018, first as a member of our kennel staff before quickly joining our training team! It became clear right away that he has a knack for reading dogs and he always forms incredibly strong bonds with each and every dog he trains. Connor has two pups of his own, a pit bull mix named Roxanne and a Doodle named Molly!

What clients are saying:

Connor and PDT, thank you all for taking the best care of Tally. We were his 4th home in 10 months, and after working with him independently for 2.5 years without much improvement, we were a little worried about his behavioral issues. He has been a completely different dog since returning home from boot camp 2 weeks ago. He has an amazing confidence and seems at peace when he is home and in his “place.” We can’t wait to bring him back for refreshers!

Premier dog training has done wonders for my 10 month old Husky! Before boot camp, she had issues with nipping and resource guarding. It was tough leaving her for those 3 weeks, but the staff was great about keeping us updated on her progress and would post pictures of her with all new friends. I would like to thank everyone, especially her trainer Connor, who has done an excellent job with her! We plan to continue bringing Ariel to PDT for boarding whenever we travel to Florida.

Connor has worked magic with my dog Dex! I finally have hope that walks and outings can be fun and relaxing for both of us instead of stressful! I can’t wait to continue practicing with Dex and helping him become better and better.

Throughout our entire process from the training program to boarding you guys have been phenomenal. We cannot say enough good things about you and your staff. The fact that every time Rouc comes he gets so excited to see Connor and that you all take such good care of him, is something we are beyond grateful for. The training he received has stuck really well as we continue to work with him 2 years later. And knowing that he gets some refreshers every time he comes for a “visit” just helps us to stay focused on keeping up with his training. We definitely will continue to utilize your services with Rouc and any future animals :). Thank you all so very very much!!

“My Golden Retriever, Sandie, spent 10 weeks at PDT  – while her human had open heart surgery. Not only did she attend boot camp with Connor for three weeks, but he continued her training during her entire stay.  Sandie has always had anxiety and was on medication for it. I gave permission for their vet to examine Sandie and change her medication if necessary. Yes, a different medication started helping her and will be continued at home. She is much more relaxed, comfortable and happy. I do believe she smiles.  I can’t say enough about PDT.  Julie and Taylor (front desk) were always friendly and their emails were comforting to me as I recovered from my surgery. Jess also kept me informed of Sandie’s progress. Connor spent extra time at pickup to make sure I could handle Sandie and understood her newly learned commands.  Instagram was updated with pictures and videos which somehow helped me feel closer to her even though we were miles apart. Yes, I cried when I looked at them but cried even more when I picked her up from her 10 week stay at PDT. Sandie was a much happier fur-baby and I can easily control her while I’m still recovering.  No more pulling and Sandie enjoys her commands.  I would also like to say that my daughter researched several facilities and none of them had anything close to what PDT offers.  When you walk into the facility, the air is fresh and none of the rooms smell of urine. The suites are large and the dogs are not kept in cages.  Next summer, I’m planning on taking a two week vacation and will be sending Sandie back to PDT for boarding. On the plus side – since she has already attended boot camp, she will always receive refresher training whenever boarded.  I will forever be grateful to the entire staff at PDT for taking care of my fur-baby during my surgery and recovery.   Love to all of you, Annie”
