“We had trouble walking our dog as she couldn’t be handled around cars or other dogs.  Doug showed us how to solve the problem and watched as we practiced the techniques.  He is full of useful information and uses a kind approach (no yelling or harsh methods).  We are so glad we called him.” – Barrie & Karen MacLean / (‘Macy’) / Kingston, Ont.

“We have already seen a different Reno toward the puppy.  Doug was amazing with our dog.  He essentially taught ‘us’ how to be better dog owners.  He is an excellent dog handler too!” – Tim & Sherry Mallory / (‘Reno’) / Gananoque, Ont.

“Though I had been through several dog training classes I still had problems with our 8 year old rescue dog being aggressive, barking all the time, and soiling the house.  Doug gave us techniques that worked, and worked immediately.  Watching Doug work with Oreo gave me insight on how to calmly correct Oreo’s behaviour.  I was impressed with his gentleness and how quickly Oreo calmed down.  I wasn’t even trying to train him not to bark when outside, but I think because he is less anxious now, he doesn’t bark at strangers at all.  It also didn’t take him long to learn to walk beside or behind me with a slack leash.  I now have a dog who is not aggressive, does not bark at people on the street, and his house training is light years better.  What’s even better is that Oreo is now even more affectionate and devoted.  All of this within the span of a few weeks.  I really will be recommending you to anyone who is having difficulty with their dog.” – Sarah Tziang / (‘Oreo’) / Kingston, Ont.

“Everything taught to us was useful and valuable.  We realize that it will be a work in progress but it makes sense and we now have the knowledge and tools to help our dogs’ behaviour.  We enjoyed the session and look forward to working together with our dog.  Thank you!!” – Gord & Trish Macleod / (‘Sierra’) / Leeds and the Thousand Islands, Ont.

Follow-up E-mail – (4) days later:    “Hi Doug…just wanted to follow up with you from Sunday when you were out.  We have had a miraculous change with Sierra.  She is truly a different dog.  We – especially Gord – have continued to work with her using everything you taught us.  You actually saved her from a rescue as that was our next option.  Thank you thank you ! !” – Trish Macleod / (‘Sierra’)

“Doug is a life saver.  I was almost to the point of thinking I had to return my Jack Russell Terrier, ‘Justin’, to the rescue organization he came from due to the biting and psychotic behaviour.  Doug’s kind but firm guidance corrected my behaviour, and my Jack Russell Terriers’ in one visit.” – Arlene Seale / (‘Justin’) / Loughborough Lake, Ont.

Follow-up E-mail – (Next Day):    “Thank you SO much for all you taught us yesterday.  Already I see such a change in ‘Justin’ (and me!).  I am thrilled and my hope has been restored.  You can absolutely use this for a testimonial and I would be happy to provide e-mail or phone references as well.” – Arlene & ‘Justin’  Seale

Follow-up E-Mail – (6 weeks after session):     “The progress Krugar has made has been nothing short of…Amazing!  Over the last few weeks in particular, he has shown DRASTIC improvement.  I have used all of the different tricks and tips that you showed me every time I am in Krugar’s  presence and it is paying off.  In the last two days I have had three people tell me Krugar has made serious improvements without me even telling them that I have been working with him regularly.  He is much more patient and calm.  He listens and responds to me more quickly, and most of all, he is much more obedient when people visit.  He respects me more and now just wants to make me happy.  When my girlfriend or I play with him outside, we haven’t had an issue with him running off at other dogs in over a month.  He stays with us even when there are people and dogs running around everywhere.  I am much happier with the new relationship that Krugar and I have built and I want to thank you and for you to know that I appreciate what you have done for us very much.” – Jared Mustard / (‘Krugar’) / Lyndhurst, Ont.

“Doug was recommended to us by friends who were very happy with their results.  We were extremely happy with the work Doug did with our Lab.  ‘Bauer’ was very tough to take on walks because, as a large puppy, he would pull you right over!  Doug’s techniques were a life (as well as shoulder) saver.  ‘Bauer’ now is much more obedient and walks beside (instead of ahead) of us on a loose leash.  The other lessons as well have been extremely valuable and useful in gaining back control of our hyper puppy!!”  – Tony & Angela Daicar / (‘Bauer’) / Kingston, Ont.

“We loved having Doug into our home.  He was very helpful.  We had him come to our house as the dogs, cats, and farm animals didn’t get along.  It’s a work in progress, but Doug was here a month ago and now the dogs are both doing well with each other and get along with all the farm pets…still working on the dogs not eating the cats…but besides that…there has been a HUGE change!”  – Megan Law / (‘Tucker’, ‘Teal’) / Harrowsmith, Ont.

“We got Guinness, a Burnese Mountain/ Shepherd cross, when she was 7 months old.  She was always a high energy dog…but gradually, starting at 10 months, we seemed to lose our authority/control over her…culminating in growling at us at times…and finally a bite.  I was devastated.  With small kids, I knew I couldn’t keep her.  I also knew that her fate would most likely be euthanasia if I took her to the Humane Society.  I called every rescue I could think of but none were able to take her.  Out of desperation, I googled ‘dog trainers’ and ‘Ain’t Misbehavin’ ‘ came up.  My intention was to ask Doug if he knew of any other rescues/fosters that I could take her to…but when he heard my story, he begged for me, before I sent her away, to give him a chance to assess her first.  Reluctantly, I agreed…and I am SO thankful that I did!   Guinness LOVED him right from the start and it didn’t take long for him to gain her respect.  He took me back to the basics and gave me the tools I needed to regain my authority/control and her respect.  The techniques and exercises he taught me to accomplish this were actually fun for both Guinness and myself.  Doug’s methods are not ‘harsh’ by any means.  I won’t say that after that one day that Guinness was perfect…but it didn’t take very long to turn things around.  She has turned out to be a wonderful dog.  Since then we have adopted another dog…Whiskey is a Husky…and by following the tips and advice Doug has given me along the way…we now have two dogs whose good behaviour is complimented everywhere we go!  I would not hesitate to contact Doug and ‘Ain’t Misbehavin’ ‘ for any issues or concerns that I may encounter in the future.”  – Megan Grundy / (‘Guinness’, ‘Whiskey’) / Westport, Ont.

“I can’t thank Doug enough for the help he has given me and my dog.  We always blamed the dog for bad behaviour.  Doug showed me that wasn’t right…and methods that worked…and taught me that it was my responsibility to put in the work every day (even if it was only 10 minutes)…to change the unwanted behaviour.  I put in the work and it paid off…my dog Champ is not misbehavin’ anymore. 🙂  Thank you very much!!!!”  – Lucy Maheu / (‘Champ’) / Kingston, Ont.

Follow-up E-Mail (3 weeks later):    “Hi Doug…Ryan and I wanted to touch base and give you an update with Hudson. We haven’t had any growling or incidents in quite a while now.  I’ve attached a video of him eating dinner for you to watch!  No more rushing out the door – we can actually leave it open if we go to grab something from the car and he’ll sit there and wait until we say “ok” to come outside.  A huge improvement dropping/leaving his toys, and heeling and staying right beside us. We wanted to thank you again for all your help! Your techniques and training were so helpful.  We don’t know what we would’ve done without you.  Take care.   Hilary and Ryan”

“Diesel was controlling our household instead of us.  Doug came and proved that a little bit of patience and some firm but gentle commands could work wonders.  2 weeks later and I am able to walk Diesel without pulling and jerking…and he will now sit and wait as approaching people speak with us without jumping.  Yeahh!    More work to come…but much more enjoyable.  We have already recommended him to other people.”  – John & Debbie Brown / (‘Diesel’) / Elgin, Ont.

“Amazing.  Very calm, reassuring manner.”  – Stephanie Currie / (‘Tyrone’) / Kingston, Ont.

“Doug really helped.  Now our dog knows who is in charge and really listens to us now.”  – Debbie, Alex, Marcus, & Alexis Pepper / (‘Tanuki’) / Kingston, ont.

“I thought that my dog Abby was a hopeless cause.  I had tried for years to figure out how to be the pack leader and control her….it never worked.  She would get aggressive with food,  rarely listened,  and did pretty much what she wanted.  With two young kids and less time to devote to her,  things got worse.   She even bit my daughter who took a bone from her.  That was it.  In a last ditch effort I called Doug…and let me tell you if I would have known what I do now…I would have done so earlier.  I watched her transform right before my eyes as he showed me ‘how’ to become her pack leader!  There is hope!   Things are not perfect…and it is a work in progress…but I am glad to report that since Doug was here things have gotten a lot better with Abby!!   Thank you so much Doug.”  – Melissa Gour / (‘Abby’) / Kingston, Ont.

“Wonderful, amazing, and kind are words that come to mind.  Our little newcomer had been in a cage for seven months with only a few short hours a day of freedom.  He had absolutely no training.  After a few short sessions with Doug it is unbelievable the change.  Our little Bailey can now obey commands like sit, stay, lie down and even place (his bed)…and walk nicely with a loose leash.  I never thought Bailey could settle into our family where we could enjoy each other.  But Doug has made this possible.  He has many simple tricks to help transform you and your pet.  We, as a family, highly recommend him.  And…Doug has always been willing and available to come back to help when we come up against other issues.  Thanks Doug.”  – Dale, Wenda, and Darline Lloyd / (‘Bailey’) / Kingston, Ont.
“We have asked for help from many sources.   What Doug has been able to do in 2  hours was amazing.   Highly Recommend!!”  – Michelle & Don Lam / (‘Lilly’) / Kingston, Ont.
“Very impressed…and definitely would recommend Doug’s services.  We noticed a HUGE difference in Lilly right away.  We can also eat in peace now thanks to Doug.”  – Matt & Krystle Lothian / (‘Lilly’) / Kingston, Ont.
“Doug came to our aide when we thought our rescue ‘Willow’ was getting aggressive.  He was incredible…and very helpful.  We really appreciate it, Doug!”  – Chris & Tabetha Svendsen / (‘Willow’) / Kingston, Ont.
“Doug is very knowledgeable and has a natural way with dogs.  He is very gentle and patient.  He is very quick to respond to any concerns you may have after his visit.  We would definitely recommend him to others!”  – Trisha & John / (‘Barkley’) / Kingston, Ont.
“Thank you so much for your help.  Now we know what we were doing wrong this whole time!”  – Dale & Kim Higgins / (‘Chester’) / Harrowsmith, Ont.

“Fantastic!   Cisco is a new dog.   I was ready to “Trade her in” because of her tugging on the leash and lack of impulse control around any distraction.   In just a few minutes she was a completely changed dog.   Amazing!”  – Holly & Gordon Gwynne-Timothy / (‘Cisco’) / Kingston, Ont.
“Excellent teacher…very patient and extremely informative.   Thank you Doug for all the help!”  – Lee & Renata Burley / (‘Noodle’) / Kingston, Ont.

Doug’s insight into how a dog views the world really helped us to understand what to do and how to do it.  He is a master at what he does.”  – Alex & Jennifer Bell / (‘Ila’) / Kingston, Ont.
“Very good…very professional…’soft’ handler.  Worked very well with my dog.  Would recommend to anyone!”  – Amber & Brian Davis / (‘Degan’) / Napanee, Ont.
“Absolutely I will recommend Doug to others!!  He came in for one hour and changed my dog’s behaviour before my eyes…while teaching me to pick up where he left off.  Doug’s training methods would prevent many owners from giving up their dogs to the SPCA.”  – Christine Kelly / (‘Zadie’) / Kingston, Ont.
“Gave us a better understanding of how to ‘calm down’…and not pass our anxiety on to the dogs.”  – Colleen Doyle & Ron McCallum / (‘Bailey’, ‘Abbey’) / Amherstview, Ont.

“Great advice…great training tools.   Doug has given us the tools we needed to create a calm environment for our dogs.”  – Faith & Shawn Russell / (‘Dax’, ‘Miley’) / Amherstview, Ont.

Follow-up E-mail (3 weeks later):    “I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the wonderful service you provided for my dog (Bruno) and I. Your friendly, knowledgeable expertise has made us both happier and in only 3 weeks of practicing your tips and tricks Bruno is a completely different dog!! I even had pizza delivered to my house the other night and the delivery lady said “Wow, you have the most well behaved small dog I have ever seen” I felt so proud at that moment, especially on how quick other people noticed the changes in his behavior!! I think everyone should have the knowledge you provide as soon as they get a puppy as it makes a world of difference to be educated properly on how to raise a dog. Again, thank you so much Doug!!!!”  – Tanya Dube / (‘Bruno’)
“I would just like to thank Doug Brady for his help with our boy Zeus. We were at the end of our rope.  We had two trainers coming once a week for the last few months and they didn’t accomplish anything…except cost me lots of money.  We were getting nowhere with Zeus’s behavior problems.  He was growling and lunging at children and adults…and everyone stopped visiting because of Zeus.   We also couldn’t walk him cause he wanted to go after any dog or person he saw…and he would pull you everywhere.  I couldn’t walk Zeus.   I have lupus and him pulling really hurts me.   But we had Doug come and he was here only ten minutes and he had Zeus out walking…minding him…and people were walking by…and Zeus didn’t bother with anyone.   It was so AWESOME!!   I now (next day) can walk my dog with one finger on the leash and he stays at my side.
     Doug is so kindhearted and such a gentle soul.   He is so loving and understanding towards your pet…and of course great at teaching you the tools to teach your pet .
     Doug you are an amazing man.   You have a great gift…and we can’t thank you enough for what you have done for our family.    110% Satisfied.”
Thanks the Mahoney Family  – Todd & Patricia Mahoney / (‘Zeus’) / Kingston, Ont.
“As someone who needs to know the ‘why’ of training, I appreciated Doug’s use of psychology in explaining why my dog behaved aggressively.  As a result, I have seen the need for consistent daily training…and it is already paying off.”  – Marguerite Van Die / (‘Porter’) / Kingston, Ont.
“Doug has a remarkable ability to quickly and easily change the behaviour of any dog…and to empower us, the owners, with the knowledge, confidence, and skills to do the same.    I have used Doug in the past with my now older dog, ‘Maddox’…and just recently with our new addition, ‘Callie’…a 5 month old Dogo Argentina who came from a rescue, and in need of some serious structure and guidance.   In a matter of just 2 hours with Doug, Callie completely transformed!    She went from a wildly energetic puppy that bounced from furniture to furniture and destroyed everything in her path…to a calm, collected puppy that “listened” when we gave her directions.    We were absolutely amazed at how easy it was!    Doug gave us the tools to show Callie, a typical young energetic pup, the guidance she needed to learn her place in the ‘pack’.    Oh…did I mention that Callie is deaf?    Her inability to hear did not stop Doug from teaching us and our lovable, energetic pup new structure so we can all live harmoniously as a family.    If you have behavioural issues with your dog, or just looking to get a head start with a new puppy, we HIGHLY recommend you contact Doug.”  – Ryan Hutchins & Rachel Sheldon / (‘Callie’) / Kingston, Ont.
“WOW!   24 hours later and the boys are much calmer…and ready to ‘listen’.   Thank you for all your pointers.   It can only get better from here.”  – Bev, Charles, Rhonda Deacon / (‘Luki’, ‘Buddy’, ‘Prince’, ‘Shiloh’) / Green Valley, Ont.
“I have worked in animal welfare/rights for over 30 years and have owned many dogs without problems.  However, my latest, Gabby (coon hound) was out of my league.  Thank you so much for your help Doug!!   You helped me with drills and training ideas…but…more importantly…you taught me to develop a different attitude when working with Gabby.  So many dogs meet tragic endings because owners are at a loss as to how to deal with them.  Shelters see them every day.  Most shelter workers are not dog experts either.  Please don’t be too proud or lazy to seek help.  Doug taught me that your dog ‘needs’ your help to learn how to live in a human world…and ‘how’ to do this…and ‘in the right way’.   It can become a matter of life and death…but it is always a matter of a happy life with your dog…or a frantic existence with a frustrated owner.   Doug is an expert…and a master at what he does.   He can make seemingly insurmountable problems become easy to manage through the knowledge and skills he teaches you.   Highly recommend.”  – Beth Kent / (‘Gabby’) / Moscow, Ont.
“I honestly thought I was going to have to put my dog down due to her aggression with people.   In such a short time with Doug I have so much hope for not only my dog…but that we can be the kind of dog owners that our dog needs.   Doug, you literally saved our dog.   You truly are a miracle worker.   There are no words to thank you enough!”  – Jason & Mellissa Woodward / (‘Maisie’) / Amherstview,  Ont.
“Doug’s effective techniques and attention to detail were instrumental in teaching me the foundations of obedience training.  He gave me the tools to train ‘Marley’ after he left…and everything has continued to improve.  He sends an encouraging follow-up email with relevant videos to keep me on track and progressing to new skills.  I appreciate that Doug makes himself available to help in the future if needed.”  – Liz Wigle / (‘Marley’) / Kingston, Ont.
“Doug really impressed us with his professionalism…and how quickly our dog ‘James’ listened to him and responded to his lessons!   No more leash pulling!!”  – Cody & Tiffiny Monk / (‘James’) / Kingston, Ont.
“Felice is a 4 year-old rescue who had not been socialized with other dogs…and may not have been outside a lot (pee-pad trained).   Our experience with Doug was very positive.   His calm, professional approach and his knowledge were greatly appreciated.   Felice was responding to Doug ‘from the get go’…and we now have the tools to carry on with her training.   Corrections were gentle…and there was praise for good behaviour.   In one session we learned how to become the pack leader for her;  basic commands;  socializing Felice with other dogs;  and feeding tips.   Thank you Doug!”  – John & Helen Shea / (‘Felice’) / Brockville, Ont.

Hi Doug
     Thank you again for coming to see Félice and us on Thursday afternoon; your expertise is much appreciated.
     I will continue on with the training and tips that you provided us with.
     On behalf of all of us that choose to adopt rescue or shelter pets…a special thank you for helping us be successful;   I’m sure that I am not the only one that appreciates the help at no cost!

“I couldn’t be more thankful for the work you’ve done with Tracker. It’s a very new approach for me and I truly find I’m having fun with teaching him rather than getting frustrated. Any progress makes me happy and proud.
I’m also part of a Facebook group where lot of people choose to rehome their pets and I’ve recommended your services on there as well and added the link to your website as a “comment”. I’ve sent you a picture of the comment.
Thank you SO much once again.”
“I cannot begin to express how grateful I am for Doug’s services.  I have a rescue who is 6 years old, didn’t know his own name, or any basic command.   Doug came for a combined 4 hours to work with my guy…and the difference is unreal.   He truly has a gift.   He is dedicated to his work and knows how to make a difference.   A wonderful, calm man, who is truly passionate about what he does. His love for dogs and his career transpires in everything he does.  He is gentle, calm and an excellent teacher both for the owner and the dog.    He is thorough and follows up with you.  I’ve gotten so many videos and resources to look into and I believe his approach is one of the best I’ve ever heard of.   I cannot recommend his services enough and will praise him and his work to anyone who will listen.”  – Stefanie Lafortune / (‘Tracker’) / Kingston, Ont.

Follow-up Email Endorsement:           “It was wonderful meeting you and spending time listening to your wise teaching.  We very much appreciated the follow up phone call and the oodles of additional information.
      Of course…you know we were appalled when you brought out the prong collars from your little bag of doggie supplies.  However…we cannot believe what a difference they have made (…after only 1 training session and 2 walks).  It’s really quite incredible.  We took Jake and Isaac to a new place for a walk, which usually spells disaster with tons of pulling, barking and lunging.  But this time was totally different…and they were so much better.
     We enjoyed your thoughtful, love filled approach to the training and found your calmness actually calmed me down as well.  We learned a lot from you…and now feel we can create a calm, safe and happy environment for Isaac and Jake.
     We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who has the great fortune to have a dog.”  – George & Susan Wright / (‘Issac’, ‘Jake’) / Gananoque, Ont.  – July/19

“I took Khaos for a walk this morning…and it was like a dream.  He was such a good boy!!   He needed to be reminded not to run out the door…but after 2 tries…he waited for me !   He’s like a completely different dog today!   I just want to say thank you!”  – Randi Grabowski / (‘Khaos’) / Kingston, Ont.  – July/19

“Thank you SO much for your help!   You have given us so many tools and tips to work with our boy so that we can enjoy our walks together again!   We will definitely recommend you!!  🙂  – Nick & Allison Wheeler / (‘Percy’, ‘Sophia’) / Kingston, Ont. – Aug/19

“Doug was amazing to work with.   He was extremely knowledgeable and kind.   Our puppy (‘Lieu’) immediately responded to him and his techniques.   He was easy to understand and very professional.   He made learning fun for both our puppy…and my partner and me.   I can’t say enough good things about Doug.   He has an incredible understanding of dogs…and it was evident by how quickly Lieu’s behaviour changed.   He went above and beyond to provide us with review materials…and to ensure all our questions were answered.”  – Jennifer Hutchinson / (‘Lieu’) / Kingston, Ont. – Aug/19

“Absolutely amazed at the transformation in our girls.   Thank you so much!”  – Hollie & luc Mongrain / (‘Ruby’, ‘Yuki’) / Kingston, Ont. – Sept/19

Accompanying email:     “We just came home from the most relaxing and enjoyable walk ever with the girls!  No pulling, no sniffing…just well behaved ladies.  We even met up with a few dogs and no lunging!  No barking.  They both sat and waited until we said ok visit…and then all they did was sniff other dogs nose.  We are very proud of our ladies.”

“As a first time dog owner, I was very pleased with Doug’s willingness to help and his thoroughness.   He taught me ‘how’ to be a good leader for my dog, which, with time and diligence on my part, will result in a better relationship between us.   I now have a new-found confidence as a dog trainer for my dog.  Thank you Doug!”  – Sierra Slegtenhorst / (‘Molly’) / Kingston, Ont. – Sept/19
“I took my dogs out for their first walk ever that I have not been totally stressed out and exhausted from their pulling.  Thank You So Much!”  – Angie Lecker / (‘Dexter’, ‘Josie’) / Kingston, Ont. – Sept/19

“The training was incredible.  We watched our pets behaviours change right in front of our eyes within minutes.  Our pets enjoyed the time with Doug…and we now have less stressed and happier companions.  Thanks again Doug for the incredible session.  I will definitely recommend you to our friends and look forward to using all your great strategies with Ben and Lucy.”  –  Lindsey Trafford / (‘Ben’, ‘Lucy’) / Kingston, Ont. – Sept/19

“I would recommend Ain’t Misbehavin’ without question.  Our dog, ‘Crosby’, was already well-behaved…but is now even easier to walk…and looks to us for direction.  His dog aggression issue is still a work in progress…but seems to be trending in the right direction.”  – Kristen Watkins / (‘Crosby’) / Kingston, Ont. – Oct/19
“Your knowlege and passion are a great combination.”  – Christine & Bryce Geoffrey / (‘Merle’) / Kingston, Ont. – Nov/19


“We called Doug the day we adopted Red from the Kingston Human Society.  When we brought her home she was very aggressive around the other dog in the home.  We contacted the Human Society and they gave us Doug’s number.  Within an hour he was at our home in the evening talking to us about our newly adopted dog.  He spent a few hours with us showing techniques on how to socialize her with other animals…along with many other training issues.  He was fantastic.  We followed his procedures and recommendations and are working with our new pup each day.  Red has come a long way.  Doug also sent us many links to various websites for dog training issues.  We watched them all and found them very informative.  Doug returned back to our house a few days later to get the two dogs to walk together and to follow up with any issues we had.  The second visit was great and we really appreciated his kindness and love of animals.  I would recommend his services to everyone I know.   Thanks Doug for all your help (…and free of charge for the Humane Society…very much appreciated).”  – Peter Rodnick & Laura Micalleff / (‘Red’) / Kingston, Ont. – Dec/19

 “I would recommend Doug Brady (“Ain’t Misbehavin’ “) as he provided a professional, helpful, quality service in a timely manner.  The resource materials provided were on point and thorough as well.   I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your work with us.”  – Leslie Milbury / (‘Maya’) / Kingston, Ont. – Jan/20

“It’s been very helpful…and Doug works well with Cooper”  – Clare lemieux / (‘Cooper’) / Kingston, Ont. – Jan/20
“Doug was full of knowledge appropriate for a new puppy (…’Bocelli’ was 14 weeks old).   We learned loose leash walking…different methods for getting ‘focus’ (…to create ‘calmness’)…how to prevent food related issues…barking and lunging…lots of helpful things…too many to list.   Great stuff to know…’sooner rather than later’.”  – Marianne Maschi / (‘Bocelli’) / Kingston, Ont. – Feb/20
“I have already recommended you to a group at Lemoine’s Point Dog Park (Facebook group).  Two hours VERY well spent!  The ball is now in my court to follow through and be the leader!”  – Patrick Thomas / (‘Willow’) / Amherstview, Ont. – March/20
“Doug is by far the best trainer we have ever had…and we have had many!   Highly recommend him.   Our badly behaved dog was fixed after one session.”  – Jenna & Matt Irvine / (‘Benny’) / Kingston, Ont. – March/20

 “Doug was excellent!   He worked with us to teach Sumo how to respond to training cues…and most importantly…taught us how to communicate with our dog!   He has provided us with so much support…even after our training session.   Thank you!”  – Tyra Yah / (‘Sumo’) / Kingston, Ont. – March/20
“It was chaos with our two dogs (‘Winston’ the Bernadoodle & ‘Gracie’ the Golden Retreiver) before Doug got here.  The moment he arrived he assessed the situation…and explained clearly what was going on…and that my dogs ‘needed’ a leader.  His calmness, experience…and ability to teach me the skills I needed…and how to modify my actions…to become the kind, firm leader that my dogs were looking for…has ensured that our home will be a calm one.    He took the time necessary to model and demonstrate things…to ensure that I fully understood each concept.   Before he left…the dynamics had clearly changed with my dogs…and…they were tired and happy.   Following the appointment…Doug provided a detailed and thorough assessment…with instructions and many helpful tools that I could use to continue to work with and improve my relationship with Winston and Gracie.   My suggestion is that you call Doug ‘before’ you have an issue…and you will be able to avoid all the frustration and anxiety.   You will be happy that you did.   Thank you Doug!”  – Liz O’Connor / (‘Winston’, ‘Gracie’) / Kingston, Ont. – March/20
“Before I contacted Doug…I had tried everything with my dog and thought my only option was to rehome her.   However…after just one visit…I feel like Meadow and I are finally on the same page…and I am once again excited to keep working with her.   Thank you so so much Doug!”  – Mathew Macpherson / (‘Meadow’) / Kingston, Ont. – March/20
“We were at the end of the line with our dog, Lochlan.  He was kind and sweet…and amazing with the kids.  BUT…he would get himself SO worked up and out of control out of nowhere…that we didn’t know what to do.   With another baby on the way, the situation was feeling overwhelming and unsafe.   He wouldn’t intentionally hurt the kids…but…a 50 lb. dog can accidentally do a lot when he would get himself into that worked up state.  We called Doug and within the first 30 minutes he was here we felt validated that we had done the right thing.   By the end of the session we saw HUGE changes!!!  It’s been less than a week…and we are well on our way (…with much support from Doug!)…to a happier house.”  – Patrick & Kaitlin Corrigan / (‘Lochlan’) / Kingston, Ont. – March/20
“Doug was very patient…and explained to us how our 15 week old puppy was confused about his place in the pack.   Over the 2 hour session…Doug explained and showed us what we needed to do to help Hugo understand.   The following day, I was impressed with how I could literally walk Hugo with one finger looped on a relaxed leash.  No more lunging, pulling, and running ahead.   Walking is now a pleasant experience for both Hugo and me.   I have continued with the simple ‘obedience game exercises’ Doug recommended…to increase Hugo’s focus and confidence.   As well…the additional resouces Doug provided have been very helpful.    I would highly recommend Doug…and not hesitate to contact him for any further issues.”  – Ric & Connie Doyle / (‘Hugo’) / Kingston, Ont. – April/20
“Doug is a great trainer and very professional.   He has provided me with great reassurance…as well as great training methods to implement for my 10 week old puppy.   After our first session, I understood the importance of leadership and obedience training…even for a puppy.”  – Greg & Ashley Frendt / (‘Milo’) / Kingston, Ont. – April/20
“Doug from “Ain’t Misbehavin’ ” came and helped me with my dog, Rocky.    He did an amazing job.    He showed me many training tips and ideas…and demonstrated everything.    He changed my dog within minutes.   Now…my part is to keep working with Rocky everyday after work…and go for walks every night as well.    It’s so nice to have Rocky walking beside me now (…with a loose leash)…the right way.   I am so thankful for your help…and I can’t thank you enough.   I highly recommend Doug.”  – Vanessa Hossack / (‘Rocky’) / Shannonville, Ont. – April/20
“We had the distinct pleasure of having Doug come to our home to help us with our two Labs, ‘Snow’ and ‘Denver’.   He is the Ultimate Dog…and Owner…Whisperer!   His arrival at our door was, in itself, a training session.   Doug is professional, knowledgeable, and passionate.   His calm and gentle approach worked wonders in an instant…and has made us wish we had known about him and his skills a year ago.   The results were immediate…and without ‘food incentives’.   His follow-up is incredible…and the continued resource support he provides, amazing.   With his help…we are becoming the people our dogs need and deserve!   We recommend him without reservation…and with total enthusiasm!”  – Julia Niblett & Gary Howard / (‘Snow’, ‘Denver’) / Gananoque, Ont. – April/20

We feel Doug’s training session helped us understand the importance of pack mentality, which we feel is most certainly required…in understanding how Finland looks to us for direction and guidance in her growth to fitting into our family.   His tools and techniques are heaven sent!!!   Thanks Doug.”  – Barry Hutt & Elaine McCulloch / (‘Finland’) / Kingston, Ont. – April/20

“We had a great first session last year that helped a lot with the issues we were having at that time.    Since that had gone so extremely well, we had Doug back to help with some additional issues.    What a huge difference in such a short period of time.    Walks and greeting other dogs has gone from anxiety-ridden…to a joyful, low-stress time…and is now my favourite part of my day.”  – Stephanie Diane Coulter / (‘Kratos’, ‘Zeus’) / Inverary, Ont. – May/20

“Excellent services!!!   Very friendly and enthusiastic.   We appreciated the very helpful and useful strategies.   Thank you so much!”  – Anny, Maddy, and Denim Patterson / (‘Frankie’) / Kingston, Ont. / May/20

“Doug provided me with such a wealth of information and knowledge.   In the few days since our training session…I have been transformed…as well as Scully.  Thank you!”  – Julie Phillips / (‘Scully’) / Kingston, Ont. / May/20

“A week after getting our 7 month old rescue dog…I was ready to give up and ‘rehome’ her.   She had some major behaviour issues (…including showing some serious aggression towards myself…and our two children).   Doug came to our house…and we didn’t worry about time…as he spent over 3 leisurely hours with us.   By the time he left…I could not believe that this was the same dog we had started with.   The change was unbelieveable…and the techniques he taught us to deal with her various issues were fantastic.   Also…his follow-up emails to make sure that we stayed on track were most helpful and encouraging.   As well…his willingness to come back for any further follow-up…should it be necessary…is greatly appreciated.   All of us look forward to spending many happy years with our new & improved…well-mannered dog.   Thank you Doug!”  – Trina & Bill Irving / (‘Scarlet’) / Kingston, Ont. / June/20

“Doug was great with Shadow and Bentley.   He showed us proper ways to address Shadow’s problematic behaviour in public…as well as Bentley’s leash pulling issue.   Great Service!  We would use again.”  – Josh Hunter & Kate / (‘Shadow’, ‘Bentley’) / Kingston, Ont. / June/20

“Thanks Doug for helping me with Reggie…my 8 month old French Bulldog.   I was nervous before our session…because it was so hard to handle Reggie.   It was always very stressful taking him out for walks…as he is a very strong-willed dog that wouldn’t listen…and a challenge to try to train.   After our session…I felt incredibly different.   I would never have thought that my little Reggie would walk so well on leash.   I am thrilled…and look forward to using all the techniques you have taught us going forward in working with Reggie.    I am extremely satisfied with your service.   You have been an incredible help…and I will be highly recommending Ain’t Misbehavin’ to others.   Thank you so much Doug.”  – Alexa Foster / (‘Reggie’) / Kingston, Ont. / June/20

“Doug…we greatly appreciate all of the guidance and instruction you’ve shared with our family.   We needed training as much as our new puppy did…so that Luna would know ‘who was in charge’…and how to create a healthy environment and relationship with her.”  – Jessica & John Bosso / (‘Luna’) / Kingston, Ont. / June/20

“It was amazing how quickly Doug took control over Frankie.   His knowledge is so powerful…and we are excited to put it to practice.”  – Stephanie and Kurtis Boyd / (‘Frankie’) / Brockville, Ont. / July/20

“From the moment Doug entered my home, he began showing Lucy how to react appropriately.   During the session I saw her learn so much and behave the best I have ever seen.   With the skills my partner and I now have…I can’t wait to see all of the progress and strides Lucy will now be making!”  – Morgan Markell / (‘Lucy’) / Kingston, Ont. / July/20

“Doug is EXTREMELY helpful!   He has a ton of information to offer…and knows exactly how to train not just the dogs…but YOU.   It’s so refreshing to meet a trainer who is not interested in money…but just in helping dogs.   The amount of ‘post training’ support and care Doug shows is so rare.   I don’t think there is another dog trainer out there like Doug.   This is just a very small snap-shot of how happy and thankful we are for your service.   You really take what you do to the next level of care and concern.  THANK YOU!!…for all your help and support.”  – Megan & Stefani Normand / ( ‘Kojo’, ‘Levi’ ) / Kingston, Ont. / July/20

“In June Doug came to my house to help me with my dog Pepper (1.5-year-old, Cattle dog/Lab mix).    He spent over 2 hours showing me things to do with Pepper and explaining in detail the “why” behind the activity.    Doug followed up the session by sending me numerous helpful links to sites with information related to what we were working on.    Since applying the strategies Doug provided, Pepper’s behaviour has significantly improved.    I highly recommend Doug if you have a pup who is misbehaving.”  – Melody Torcolacci / (‘Pepper’) / Kingston, Ont. / Aug/20

“Doug is amazing!   I was hesitant to call someone for help with my dog who pulls.   He used to pull me across parking lots to the point I would fall and injure myself in the process.   It was always a pain walking my dog…so I would have to take him out let him pee and come right back in.   I called Doug and he came the next day.   He wasn’t at all concerned about money…he was more concerned about helping me with my big dog!    Within one hour he had my dog walking on the leash, no pulling…walking beside me, not in front or behind…just beside me.   My dog is a whole new dog after just one session.   Today, I managed to walk him around the block with no pulling…and I managed to walk him to the park 20 minutes away with my son and I…something we couldn’t do before.   My dog is much happier due to the fact he can come with us anywhere we go now!   And…we are much happier that we can bring him with us also!   Thank you again Doug!   I would recommend you to anyone who needs help with their dog!”  – Lindsay Chambers / (‘Lucky’) / Kingston, Ont. / Sept/20

“Doug has spent a lot of time with me several times to help me learn to manage my two hounds.   They are no longer lunging at other dogs to say ‘hi’…or almost snapping my arm off when they see a ‘squirrel’.   Now they heel, sit, lie down…and walk on a leash without pulling or stalling.   Doug’s skills have helped me to relax and enjoy our walks…rather than feeling like we are playing ‘tug-of-war’.   At the end of our walks…we can all relax and report that we’ve all enjoyed our time together.”  – Ruth Dubbin / (‘Tallulah’, ‘Molly’) / Kingston, Ont. / Oct/20

“Within 5 minutes Doug had Beau (…a ‘rescue’ dog) sitting and staying…with little physical contact…gently used body language…no treats…talking softly but firmly.   As well…when walking on a leash (…and using a prong collar ‘correctly’)…within a very short period of time and using the same approach…Beau was walking calmly behind or beside Doug with only very minimal correction.   To me…this was nothing short of a miracle.”  – Dale Boyd / (‘Beau’) / Picton, Ont. / Oct/20

“We both could not believe the difference in just five short minutes.   After 2 hours, Doug gave us invaluable tools for us to understand our puppy’s behaviors and how to correctly lead her.   He has sent so much more information after he left us.   It has made a world of difference and we are so glad we found him.   We would not hesitate a second to recommend his services!”  – Brian & Michelle Cowx / (‘Koda’) / Inverary, Ont. / Oct/20

“We are definitely moving in the right direction now…thanks to you.   It’s so rewarding and amazing to see such positive changes in Tux.   Thanks so much Doug!
     Doug is extremely knowledgeable about dog behaviour and various training techniques…and he has made such a positive difference in our relationship with our 7 month old mini doodle ‘Tux’.   For us…Tux’s ‘pulling on the leash’ and ‘barking like a maniac’ (at people and dogs) on walks was one of our main problems.    Literally within minutes of meeting Doug…Tux was in a perfect (and perfectly quiet) ‘heel’ position with Doug’s methods.   This week we were able to take Tux into a busy Winners/Homesense for the first time where he was perfectly well behaved walking and waiting patiently at my side with other shoppers and dogs around…and no barking at all.   I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it!   Doug clearly cares deeply for all dogs…but also about building the most rewarding and loving relationships between dog and owner for a lifetime.   Doug is not only helpful with ‘correcting’ dog behaviour…he also offers fun play ideas too (ask him about the ‘Follow Me Game’…and what a ‘Flirt Pole’ is!).   He followed up after our meeting to check in with us as to how things were going…gave us ‘specific’ follow up ideas tailored to our dog…and he emailed lots of great information for learning and for us to keep for continuing reference.   Doug is on our side if we ever have any other questions or concerns…which is so appreciated…and we’re looking forward to keeping him updated.   If you’re in doubt – just call…Doug can help!”  – Craig & Jill Hughes / (‘Tux’) / Kingston, Ont. / March/21

“My dog had severe behavioural/obedience issues that were hard for me to understand and cope with.   However…after Doug’s help, Bear significantly improved (…unrecognizeable from before)…and I can now enjoy him more.   Doug also came back and helped me with Bear…to integrate him into a household with a cat…which is going seamlessly.   Doug is extremely kind, helpful…and truly cares about the dogs he helps and their owners.   If you allow Doug to help you…you are guaranteed a better dog and a better relationship with your dog!”  Amy Tuer / (‘Bear’) / Kingston, Ont. / May/21
“I have a 7 month old Shihpoo and a 4 year old Chocolate Lab.   It was tough admitting that I needed help training ‘Arya’…my Shihpoo puppy.   I did some online research…and found Doug Brady (“Ain’t Misbehavin’ “).   I was not disappointed!
    He came to our home…and with his calm, Zen-like demeanour…gently explained and showed us ways in which I could better support my puppy’s learning.   After only a few hours with him…our lives were on the way to being better.   The training he provided was useful beyone compare.   I am in awe of his ability and knowledge.   He is a good soul…and we are so appreciative for his help.   I am now a huge fan…and have already recommended him to others.   I highly recommend him to anyone who needs help with their furry friends!”  – Laura Bulmer / (‘Arya’, ‘Nyla’) / Verona, Ont. / May/21
“We couldn’t be more pleased with Doug’s services.   He understands dogs so well.   Within 30 minutes…Toby was a calmer, happier, and more obedient dog.   The next day we took Toby for a 45 minute walk without any jumping or pulling.   We whole heartedly recommend him for correcting unwanted behaviours quickly and patiently…and providing us with the knowledge to continue Toby’s training.   Thanks Doug!!”  – Denise Ortynski & Bob Norwood / (‘Toby’) / Harrowsmith, Ont. / May21
“Very calm and patient demeanor with Maggie.  We really appreciate all the tips and advice.   Also…very patient and helpful with all 4 of our kids (…Sofia, Natalia, Camden, and Hudson).   Thank you!”  – Adrian & Angela Weaver / (‘Maggie’) / Gananoque, Ont. / May/21
“Doug was very helpful.   He gave us a different perspective so that we could understand ‘why’ the unwanted behaviours were happening…and showed us how easy it is to change and address these issues…by simply changing the way we did some things with our dog.   It is definitely a commitment to maintain the training and advice he taught us (15-30 minutes a day)…but…these little training steps are so easy (…and fun…i.e. the ‘Follow Me Game’)…and SOoo well worth it.   After his visit…we experienced a new situation.   We sent Doug an email and he was able to advise us on the best ‘stategy’ to overcome that situation…which was successful.   I would definitely recommend Doug to anyone who needs help with their dog!  Thanks again!”  – Patricia Gagne / (‘Xena’) / Perth, Ont. / May/21

“Doug’s focus for our household was to form a strong, loving, and trusting bond with our former puppy mill dog…’Flossie’.   The ‘relationship’ being the primary consideration…everything else is secondary (…be sure to ask about the ‘Follow Me Game’).   His methods are flexible…to meet the needs of a particular dog.   Doug clearly cares deeply about the dogs and clients he works with.”  – Glenn Hyde & Donna Kearns / (‘Flossie’) / Milford, Prince Edward County / June/21

“Within a few days of integrating Doug’s guidance…we have already noticed a more content and obedient dog.   Doug has a very calm, gentle and realistic approach…which does not overwhelm.

“Doug came to my house to help me learn how deal with my very active 16 month old Vizsla.   He was helpful right from the moment he stepped through my door.   He showed me all kinds of fun games and exercises to help Billy learn how to be more calm…which in turn has helped me to be more calm!!   I also appreciated the extensive follow-up.   I know that I can call at any time with any future challenges that I may face.   Doug was ‘firm’…but very kind…and Billy loved him!!” – Diana Warme / (‘Billy’) / Picton, Ont. / Aug/21
“I contacted Doug to help with obedience training for my 1.5 year old Lab mix (Stella)…who experiences tremendous social anxiety.  Doug came and explained how she needs reassurance that she has a leader and that most of her anxiety stems from a lack of leadership…leaving her feeling insecure in herself.   I can’t express how grateful I am for the time Doug took to explain the ‘root cause’ and how to address it…and setting long term training goals that would supplement her foundation of learning…to help build her trust and confidence in the world around her.
     Doug explained how to manage her anxious behaviours with lots of hands on work.  He showed me training methods that would benefit my dog to help eliminate her anxious tendencies on walks and in the car.   He also went above and beyond with providing extensive resources that I can continue to follow along with and refer back to when building on our obedience training.   It is one thing to teach…but it’s an entirely different thing to provide helpful ongoing learning material…which I am truly grateful for.
     Stella’s anxiety level did not allow her to be comfortable with anyone petting her besides family.   Not even half way through our session, she was letting Doug give her all the pets, pats and scratches he wanted…and seemed to be disappointed when he stopped.   I was completely shocked at how fast my dog gained comfort in Doug’s presence.   He was compassionate and loving towards my dog which I couldn’t have asked more for.
     Doug is truly a magician (…as I kept saying during our session  lol!)…and also a miracle worker.   Since our session I’ve been seeing a completely different dog in terms of confidence and overall obedience.   It has only been several weeks but I can only imagine how wonderful this experience with Doug will turn out to be.   My dog is happier…and seeing her like this makes me happier.   I just want my dog to enjoy herself during our times out and feel that Doug has made a tremendous improvement with her confidence.
     I can’t thank Doug enough…and would recommend his services to anyone with a dog regardless of their circumstances.   Doug has such a great understanding of behaviours and I believe anyone would benefit from his insight for helping their dog live their best life.”  – Stacey Seto / (‘Stella’) / Kingston, Ont. /Aug/21
“We had been struggling…trying different training methods, etc….to get Beau to calm down on leash around other dogs.   We were blown away that Doug had him sitting quietly right next to a dog he had never met within 20 minutes of starting to work with him.   We took Beau out for his night time bathroom outing last night around 8pm, and we walked within 10-15 feet of a group of people that had 3 or 4 dogs, and Beau was so calm and relaxed and didn’t bark or growl once.   Getting that close to doggies calmly is completely unheard of for Beau.   Beau is now generally much calmer in all situations.   Thanks so much!!”  – Angie & Dave Sullivan / (‘Beau’) / Kingston, Ont. / Aug/21
“In a very short period of time Doug was able to correct several unwanted behaviours that had been a source of frustration to me for a long while.   Bonsai is getting better every day…and I have also become a better dog owner.   I appreciate the time that Doug took to write out a detailed summary of our session…and tips for the future.   Thank you so much!”  – Gabriela Baumann / (‘Bonsai’) Kingston, Ont. / Aug/21

“We are very grateful to have had Doug’s help with training our very stubborn dog, Tux.   Doug is a very passionate dog behaviourist and a genuinely kind soul.   From the moment Doug walked in the door…he showed us the importance of effective communication with our dog…as well as dog walking and feeding techniques for developing strong leadership and a positive relationship between ourselves and Tux.   We highly recommend Doug for all of your dog whispering needs!   Thanks so much for visiting us.   Your passion for training dogs is inspiring and we took away so much.”  – Erin Corrigan & Josh Hall / (‘Tux’) / Gananoque, Ont. / Sept/21

“Doug was very professional, efficient…and ‘calm’ as he was training my dog…which made Butkus…and myself…much more calm during the process.  Thank you.”  – Ashley Wind / (‘Butkus’) / Kingston, Ont. / Sept/21

“I met Doug today and the experience was so eye opening and amazing.   I’m so happy he was suggested to me by a friend as it’s already made a HUGE difference with my pup and myself…and how we work together.   Everything he said made sense and clarified my understanding of puppy/dog training and behaviour.   He explains why he’s asking x, y, or z from your dog…and helps you see it from the dog’s perspective as well as your own.   It was a lot of information in a short amount of time…and understanding that…he sends you a detailed email of everything we went over…and also other videos that will help to reinforce what we learned today.
You can see that this is such a passion for him…and that he loves doing what he does.
I would recommend Doug to anyone needing any kind of help with their dog without hesitation.
Thank you Doug – those few hours have already improved my relationship with Eli…and it will only get better! 🐕🙏🏼💕”  – Susie Koval / (‘Eli’) / Amherstview, Ont. / Sept/21
“Doug went above and beyond to ensure a thorough, helpful…and ‘fun’…training session.    His attention to detail, love for dogs, and patience was extraordinary.   He was even helpful on the phone afterwards when I had additional questions!   Charlie is doing a little better every day…and I have sung your praises quite a lot recently.   Thank you again for your help!”  – Lise Comartin / (‘Charlie’) / Kingston, Ont. / Sept/21
“We noticed an immediate improvement in Bandit.   Thank you for training Sarah, Abby, and me!”  – Bill Craig / (‘Bandit’) / Yarker, Ont. / Sept/21
“Amazing Trainer!   He taught me how to ‘communicate’ with my little dog…to get the results we are aiming for…by first understanding the way she thinks and sees things.   He helped to build my confidence…as well as my dogs’.   I can now get Lulu to focus on me…and now feel more of a bond with Lu.   Thank you!!”  – Kathryn Bender / (‘Lulu’) / Kingston, Ont. / Sept/21
“Doug got to work right away.   He used very professional and non-aggressive methods…and Aussie’s transformation began within the first few minutes.   We saw the change in her before he even left.   Doug doesn’t stop there…he sends instructions and follows up making sure that pet and owners are doing well.   We certainly recommend him to all pet lovers.”  – Asppi & Havovi Tarapore / (‘Aussie’) / Portland, Ont. / Sept/21
“Doug was very kind and professional.   The instruction given was easy to follow and worked well.   We are now able to walk Oscar without it being a struggle.   Thank you Doug!”  – Shelley, Dave, and Jacob Walsh / (‘Oscar’) / Kingston, Ont. / Sept/21
“I have learned how to behave differently myself…and I can see an immediate improvement in my dogs behaviour.   Thank you Doug!”  – Heather Stuart / (‘Sadie’ ‘Kiki’) / Kingston, Ont. / Sept/21
“We want to thank you for the excellent training session we had a few weeks ago with our dogs Furgus and Zoey.   The improvement in the dogs’ behaviour was immediate.   Furgus in particular was much easier to handle…using the prong collar as you taught us…and responds well to leash pressure.   Prior to our session with you…he would pull strongly on the leash when seeing other people, dogs, squirrels, and rabbits.   His behaviour has improved significantly.   I know that training is a process…and we are continuing using the methods that you taught us.   Through those methods and techniques…along with the training referrences that you provided us…our dogs are well on the way to becoming calm and confident members of our family.   Thanks once again for your excellent work.”  – Chris, Celia, and Erica Conti / (‘Furgus’, ‘Zoey’) / Kingston, Ont. / Sept/21
“Doug provided so much valuable information…as well as techniques that are so smart and yet so easy to execute.   I can already see a difference in Goji’s behaviour.   He already appears so much more calm.   Thank you Doug for all your help!”  – Emily Woodman / (‘Goji’) / Kingston, Ont. / Sept/21

Doug helped me out – a lot – when one of my seemingly harmless Boston Terriers suddenly misbehaved with disastrous results (while I was on vacation). Shep was being dogsat, and that was apparently a big part of the problem. Doug taught me 5 basic “pack leadership principles” which I immediately employed. In 10 years, the behavior was never repeated, and I’ll always endorse and be grateful to Doug.

Doug was a great dog trainer and an even better people trainer. 😉 We will be forever grateful for the education and assistance that Doug gave us and our dog Luna. As total newbie dog owners we had a lot to learn. Doug helped us from when Luna came home as a puppy and through the challenging adolescent months. We now have a lovely adult husky/lab cross who is a wonderful part of our family thanks to Doug’s guidance. He will be missed. The Bosso Family
