Tom was one of the first twelve Air Force Canine Handlers to be chosen to help support First Marine Expeditionary Force in Operation Iraqi Freedom. His military working dogs seized drugs, explosives, and people. He was blessed with the best training possible from our United States Air Force.
At A+ Dog Training we believe in giving back! Whether it’s a Delightful, Calm Canine, or A+ Lifetime program, $12 will be donated to the Military Working Dog Team Support Association each time a new dog owner signs up for a program.
We were going to donate our proceeds on Independence Day but figured July 12th was more meaningful to us. On behalf of the United States Military Working Dog Teams and A+ Dog Training, we thank you for your patronage.
Please visit MWDTSA.org for more information or for ways to send military working dogs serving our country a squeaky toy!
Chief is a dog A+ Dog Training is working with and Cash is the son who drew Tom (Dog Trainer Guy) pictures during the consultation. We thank each and every one of our clients for inviting us into their homes and allowing us to help their dog become a part of the family. We feel like we’re a part of the family too!
Kayla was awarded 2nd Place at the 2017 4H Dog Obedience competition at Stanislaus County Fair in Turlock. We’ve seen her mature and grow throughout her high school career and are so proud of her (and her dog Aspen)!
The dog program is designed to help 4H students demonstrate initiative, leadership, self-reliance, and sportsmanship. The students experienced pride and responsibility of owning a dog. A+ Dog Training volunteered an hour after school, once a week preparing the students for a 4H Dog Obedience and Showmanship Competition as a part of giving back to the community.
“I just wanted to share that Benny went to the dog park today and did wonderful! He’s very tired… This is a pic of him on his walk. He just plopped 😉 Thanks for all of your help. Have a wonderful day!”
“We saw dramatic improvement in Fiesta’s behavior after meeting Tom. His skills as a trainer gave us confidence with our new dog.”
“My GSD Chirkaan and I took private lessons with Thomas. He is very knowledgeable and professional and we learned a lot from Thomas, thank you!”
“As a first time dog owner A+ Dog Training was key in explaining all the things to expect with a new puppy and how to handle them properly. I would highly recommend Thomas to anyone who has a training need.”
“Hi Tom! Guess who? I wanted to thank you for all the time you’ve spent with Beth Castle Widdowson and in patiently training her. I seriously am doing much better but still like to chase an occasional mailman, UPS, FedEx, and oh yes, that ugly gray truck along my fence line. The difference is, when my mom opens the door now, I turn around and she has that ‘look’ on her face and I know what she wants so I stop and come bounding up the steps to her. We hope to see you around town and hopefully with an Advanced training class. Take care!”
