Eric made the entire process of finding our new puppy, Bear, extremely easy and was a pleasure to work with. From start to finish he was responsive and met exactly the needs we were looking for. We could not be happier with the end result and will definitely contact Eric in the future for training once Bear gets to his terrible two stage.

I really dont know where to begin. I have been a Rottweiler owner for the past 6 years and wasnt very open to other breeds, especially German shepherds. I have experience handling working Rottweilers and as far as I was concerned no other breed could compare. Once our Rottweiler passed away, my husband asked if we could look into another breed. You can only imagine my despair when he asked for a solid black German Shepherd.

Eventually I wound up talking to Eric and I realized my knowledge of German Shepherds wasnt exactly up to par. This guy knew his stuff. And not just about German Shepherds but Rottweilers as well. I could slowly see my resistance fading, but I still wasnt sold on granting my husbands wishes quite yet. I should have known when he sent me a picture of a solid black shepherd puppy (looking like an adorable bear cub) that I had lost this battle. But I still wasnt giving in!!

Long story short: we purchase the puppy, he arrives to our home and for the first 2 weeks that dogs feet barely touched the ground. My husband was so thrilled that he and this puppy had made an instant connection.

I was impressed at how well he got along with our 6 - year old female Rottweiler and our young children. Since weve brought him into our family, his temperament is what really had me sold on him. He was crate trained and the foundation had been laid for obedience at 12 weeks! No other breeder/trainer can compare to the level of service we have received from Dogmastery. Eric has assisted us with every detail along the way from: house training to feeding, grooming, exercise, teething. You name it, he knows all about it.

I will NEVER buy another dog from anyone else. Eric has completely sold me on the German Shepherd Dog. I am really looking forward to Zeus's development in the Dogmastery training/protection program.

I cannot agree more with all the positive reviews. Our one year old German Shepard was a handful. Avoiding other dogs and people was incredibly stressful. Eric transformed Stella 180 degrees to a loving family dog, and one which we have zero anxiety taking in public close proximity to other dogs. He doesn't just train your dog, he trains you, the responsible owner. It's up to you to carry on everything learned to reinforce behavior, and share that knowledge with family members. Eric is excellent on all facets of his craft. I highly recommend him for any temperament dog.

Eric is masterful at his craft! Our two year old Collie Chow, Sebastian, was a puller on the leash, a jumper at the door and a snaper if you spooked him from behind but he sure was cute! We wanted to capture that cuteness so the rest of society could enjoy him the way we did. Eric helped Sebastian (and really taught us too) to master these poor behaviors through positive reinforcement and excellent mental stimulation, among other things. He trained us, as much as Sebastian, to follow easy to master, consistent techniques that resulted in a remarkable turn around for our best friend. Now Sebastian is a joy to walk, a darling when new guests come to the house and so gentle that we were able to take him to nursing homes as a calming influence for residents.

We are now having Eric train our two new editions (two and three year old Pitbull Terriers) and are not surprised that they too are excelling under his tutelage.

Awesome experience!
My husband and I can't say enough about Eric and Dogmastery. Our 4 month old Doberman completed a 2 month training program with Eric in April. We handed our doggie off to Eric as a pup who would jump, pull, bite, chew, run in all directions and never respond to a command. We have a large family with people coming and going all the time, so the addition of our Doberman felt challenging and chaotic.
Eric is calm, intelligent, personable and most importantly extremely easy to work and communicate with in our ongoing training of Max. Eric has trained him to obey his commands and respond to discipline quickly. Max's behavior in our home is appropriate and we are able to leave him free in the home for extended periods during the day. He is a great companion on long walks and hikes both on and off the leash. Eric is always available for questions and concerns.
Training Max is a work in progress and it has been comforting knowing that should we have an incident or problem, Eric has been there to quickly and efficeintly to solve the problem. He is known in our family as the dog whisperer and we all recommend Eric and Dogmastery to five stars and beyond!

I adopted a rescue dog several years ago and experienced challenges that became worse over the years - Rico lunged at other dogs - he got into fights - i had to cross to the other side of the street when walking him if we saw another dog. Yes, i was one of those people who had no life because i had to take him out when i knew no one was around. I was a nervous wreck.

I found Eric through one of the folks in my neighborhood who, like me, had a new dog in his life that was a bit of challenge. Our previous dogs were totally chill. And this persons neighbors even said his dog came back a changed dog after spending 8 weeks with Eric.

I contacted Eric - he responded to my inquiry immediately. He spent an hour on the phone with me while patiently answering my many questions. I had also sent him a list of behaviors that i wanted to ensure were addressed and corrected.

So I sent Rico off to behavioral rehab - 7 weeks - and he did indeed come home a changed dog. But just as important was the time Eric spent with me after Rico came back ensuring my behavior was changed as well and that i learned to continue and follow the training - how to talk to Rico, how to read his behavior,

Now i don't cross the street when another dog is walking towards us. People in the park have commented on the change in his behavior - that Rico is so much calmer. I can take him to a friend's house and not worry that he's going to lunge at them. And people can come into my apartment now as well.

And when i have questions and text Eric is always responsive.
I had worked with trainers in the past who once you had completed the lessons always said - oh and if you need anything - have any issues you can always call me. But it was just lip service.

Eric is the real deal - he means what he says and has genuine care for the dogs and their guardians. He wants both to be successful.

Skylar, although very sweet most of the time, came with some serious baggage. Adoption is a bit of a gamble, particularly when the dog is past the puppy years....just never know what you are getting. We checked out several trainers looking for the right communication skills, modern approach and attitude. Too many, outdated, 1950s, Your dog is a slave and should be treated as a such, trainers still in business! Then we found Eric, based on several local recommendations.

We left Skylar with DogMastery for 6 weeks and asked Eric to come in and do the full training program with us as well. He did a TERRIFIC job training us on how to handle, read, command and understand the dog and was equally expert at teaching Skylar how to stay engaged, follow our lead and obey commands. His communication was thoughtful, concise and very insightful. His lessons were crisp, focused and a LOT of fun for everyone. His ability to read Skylars mood and actions while advising us on how to work with him were uncany....simply brilliant. I think well be able to let her off leash, at the ball field, during Spring training next year!

DogMasterys attention to detail and observations were a blessing. He was positive and patient with us as we learned and practiced. We progressed from a 8ft line to off leash preparation and felt great each step of the way. He introduced Skylar to the e-collar over a 30 day period when other trainers spoke of utilizing the device in 2-3 day. Weve learned a TON from Eric and are excited about continuing to grow with our buddy. Skylar was transformed from a wild child to the Bestest Dog in the World and we are SO grateful that we were introduced to the DogMastery staff and Eric was available to make it happen. Weve already given out DogMasterys info to several friends and wouldnt hesitate to recommend him over and over again! Our family feels he's worth every peso!

Hello dog friends! It has been 2 weeks since Bella has been home. She just completed a 2 month board/train and I have to say Eric and DogMastery has improved our quality of life. I know thats saying a lot, but the whole family is less stressed and enjoying more activities together. We had a follow up visit from Uncle Eric to train ME. All is great. I took Bella to the dog park yesterday and she is such a joy. We walk out the door heeling (bolting was her favorite!). She comes to me when its time to leave the dog park and tries really hard at not being an instigator. She's become much more neutral and responsive to my requests.

Thank you guys so much for all that you have done for Bella and the family. Eric you are truly great at what you do!

Unfortunately my experience was not very good. I had contacted Eric James for my female German Shepard, Luna. She is 7 years old and was bit by a dog 3 years ago. Since then she became aggressive toward other dogs. I had contacted Eric to help me with her aggression. I also told him that my parents, who will take care of her the most need training. He assured me he will guid us with everything. He did not. 2 weeks after i got Luna back, she attacked a small dog which had to go to emergency and cost me more money. That is the only time when he came to spend less than an hour with me and teach me how to handle the dog, but he didn't have the time to go in a place where there would be dogs around. That was my main concern, how to handle her around other dogs. Still haven't received training, nor directions as he promised. And he hasn't made the time to train my parents, which they now have the dog and she bit another small dog. He is very unprofessional, i tried to contact him via email and text. He never responded back. I had paid a lot of money for nothing. Very bad experience and will never recommend his services to anyone. Very disappointed.

We are so happy with our dog Rudi!! He is such a smart and attentive puppy. We get so many compliments on how well balanced he is and how beautiful he is. We take him to as many places as we can, he especially does so well in stores. Most of the time he will lay down and just go to sleep. It is so fun to have an energetic dog that also has an off switch to where he will relax when I need him to. We got him from Eric and Christie when he was 4 months old. He is 7 months old now and he is thriving with his obedience training with my trainer Gary Watts. We live in Northern California, Gary is the go to guy up here!!
Thank you so much to Christie for sharing his picture when you did! We had just previously put our Malinois mix down because she became very sick. I had a huge empty spot in my heart and Rudi has been so wonderful. He has made the pain of losing Lilly so much easier to cope with.
If you are looking for a wonderful companion please check out Dog Mastery!

We received a puppy from Dog Mastery and we could not recommend them enough! Christie and Eric are excellent to work with and they know their puppies/dogs. We were looking for specific traits in a dog and Christie listened and then paired us up with a puppy that matched our needs. We could not be happier! My husband and I have bred dogs in the past and are very particular about who we would purchase a dog from, because there are so many breeders that are not reputable. If you are looking for a reputable, caring breeder and trainer, then I suggest you check out Dog Mastery.

Our family and our new pup had taken 6 weeks of obedience training and his behavior was playful but he was pretty good with obeying commands.Then at 1 1/2 yrs old, he started exhibiting aggressive behavior, growling at us,stealing things, chewing furniture, jumping up on the kitchen counter and basically "giving us the finger" when we gave him commands. He was in control of US! Then he bit our son when he was trying to pet him and we knew we had to take action or risk more serious consequences.

When I told our neighbor what happened she suggested calling Eric, owner of Dog Mastery. When we met Eric and explained the situation and what results we were looking for, he immediately put us at ease by saying this behavior was not uncommon and was correctable. Our pup, Diggle, took off with Uncle Eric and it was one of the hardest but best decisions we could have made. Eric kept us informed of Diggle's progress, we viewed him from a distance in a park setting while Eric worked him through various commands while kids were playing soccer nearby and we were totally amazed. We also received You Tube videos showing our pup sitting patiently outside restaurants in locations with high foot and vehicle traffic. No jumping, no barking just behaving - imagine that!
At 10 1/2 weeks, we were getting antsy and Eric gave us the choice of training for another 2 weeks to incorporate EXTREME outside variables or bringing him home and all of us meeting with Eric weekly to get Diggle to the next level and to train and transition US as well so we were all on the same page. Diggle returned home and what a dramatic difference, This is still a work in progress since Diggle is definitely testing us but so many of the bad behaviors have been corrected. My husband is back to walking him without being pulled down the street and Diggle is on and off the leash. Commands are obeyed making us alot more comfortable and in control. Destruction of items in our house has stopped. We haven't had to replace and tv remotes and Diggle actually waits at the door before going outside or entering the car. Too bad we didn't know Eric years ago, we might have sent our kids to him for training. Thanks Uncle Eric - we made the right choice!

This year my cousin introduced me to Mr. Eric James, a dog trainer and the owner of DogMastery. At first I was not keen on
going through the process of purchasing and raising a new puppy; the hassle of shipping a dog on a plane was a big sticking
point when I could easily find a quality dog in my hometown at a comparable price. When I arrived at the park Mr. James was
controlling at least eight dogs (some adults, and some puppies) all without leashes. They responded to his commands
eagerly, joyfully and without fault. These dogs were all exceptional and well-mannered, and their focus, even with extreme
distraction, was simply amazing. Although I was impressed, I still had apprehensions because of the long distance
relationship involved in training and transporting a puppy.

I was about to leave when one of the puppies approached me. It was a four-month-old black German Shepherd already
exhibiting a lot of behaviors that you would expect in a much older dog with some basic obedience training. Since Mr. James
had done such a good job with her at that point, I decided to purchase her and leave her with Mr. James for further training.
Mr. James kept my dog for a few more months, during which time he kept in touch with me through videos, texts, etc. to keep
me abreast of my dogs progress.

When I finally picked her up from the airport all my concerns and anxieties were completely eliminated. Introducing her to my
adult dogs and family members was seamless; the second day at home I let my two-year-old granddaughter play with her
and take her for a very short walk on loose leash with no incidents. Now my adult dog gets along with her as though she has
always been a family member. They eat together, sleep together, play together, all in an amazing manner. She is a special
dog and has drive like crazy, but as soon as she comes in the house she immediately goes to down and stay positions
with no problem.

Jazz, thats her name, is well suited, from a foundational standpoint, to perform at any competition level that I choose for her
in the future. I have already scheduled to return her to DogMastery for further development when she is twelve months old so
Mr. James can continue her transformation.

If you have the time and the training skills and you want a GOOD dog, get it from DogMastery

but...

If you want a GREAT dog, get a good one from DogMastery and let Mr. James train it for you. You wont regret it.

Jazz, thats her name, is well suited, from a foundational standpoint, to perform at any competition level that I choose for her
in the future. I have already scheduled to return her to DogMastery for further development when she is twelve months old so
Mr. James can continue her transformation.

If you have the time and the training skills and you want a GOOD dog, get it from DogMastery

but...

If you want a GREAT dog, get a good one from DogMastery and let Mr. James train it for you. You wont regret it.

I have an English Golden who is great with kids but would lose it every once in a while and get into fights with smaller dogs. I was recommended to Eric and decided to move forward. It is one of the best decisions I have ever made. I not only got a dog who is playful with all other dogs he is completely obedient to the point I could easily make him therapy dog. I live in San Francisco and take him with me everywhere including inside stores, etc. I can also confidently have him off leash walking the streets.
My main concern about having a dog was to make sure he is a part of the family and that it's not a chore to have him. Eric made it so that my dog is in tune with me and its a pleasure to be around him all the time. I wholeheartedly recommend Eric for your dog training needs. I couldn't be happier about the decision.

Until a few month ago, Roger was a two-year-old Schnoodle with a ton of nervous energy, a loud and frequent bark and a not so nice demeanor with certain folks (especially kids!). I'm happy, amazed and impressed to say that the old Roger is no more! Eric took Roger on for about two months, and in that time, work wonders.

If you need a dog trainer, I could not recommend Dog Mastery enough. Roger is like a new dog. He's still our cuddly, happy and playful boy, but now he listens to commands (down, wait, quiet, come) and actually responds to them. I never in a million years thought my dog would be able to walk off leash with me in public and now, in just a short amount of time, he does - and he behaves!

We tried taking Roger to other training classes when he was a puppy, and we tried doing training on our own. But I've got to tell you, I wish we'd known about Dog Mastery sooner. Eric has provided the best possible service imaginable. He is not only a stand up amazing guy, but he's always available for questions, makes frequent visits if necessary to help us and, let face it, he's trained US to be better dog parents.

Thank you Eric and Dog Mastery!

My family purchased a German Shepard puppy and we needed her to be trained to protect our household. We sought out a training organization and was referred to Dog Mastery. We have had nothing but positive experiences with those who have handled and trained our dog. She has learned to perform on demand and does an excellent job with following commands; even with her dominant personality. If you are looking for quality training for your new family member, look no further. They will not disappoint...

We got our German shepherd from Eric when he was one year old and have been working with Eric for the past year. Our dog is a much better trained dog now. Eric is very patient with his clients and is always available for questions and assistance. Our dog is now a part of our family and we greatly appreciate all of Eric's help. Would recommend him highly, especially if you have high energy dog!

I was presented with a five week old female German Sheppard puppy by my wife and daughter for my birthday last year. Knowing that this cute little nibbling soul would soon turn into a running, barking buzzsaw, I was determined not to let that happen. But my experience with dogs was limited. And by that I mean, Non what-so-ever.

I tried the obedience class at the local pet supply place but sort of got lost in the crowd.

Looking around for something a little more individualized, I was referred to Eric James of Dog Mastery. Strangely enough by a woman who's GSD had been trained by someone eles. She explained that her trainer was retired but she had seen other Dog Mastery trained dogs and was so impressed that she had been wanting to refer Eric for awhile. Guess I got lucky.

Working with Eric in their puppy management program, my greatest satisfaction came from the realization that he wasn't training my dog. He was coaching Me, to train my dog.
And the process made so much sense. After all, I'm the one that needs to have her lay down and wait from the other side of the dog park when she's eyeing a toddler running across the field. Or have her walk calmly at my side as we pass every growling, yapping lapdog in the neighborhood. Thanks to Eric, these things and more are part of my rambunctious ... now 11 month old, 70 pound puppy.

5 Stars!

Cheers!

Jeff trained our unruly pit bulls (2 adults, 1 puppy) to well behaved dogs!! They were trained for 3.5 weeks and when they got home I couldn't believe my eyes, they were totally different dogs! From basic commands, sit, down, wait to more complex recall commands, Jeff turned them into doggie rock stars.

Thank you Jeff for your wonderful work, you saved our dogs, lMalo, Lola & Oso thank you!!

My family adopted a 7 month old German Shepard of working stock. I thought I knew what that meant. This is my 7th dog and I have had German Shepards before. I was wrong, it became apparent quickly that I was "over doged" and that we had a problem on our hands. The dog was high drive and aggresive. We interviewed two trainers that both suggested re-homeing the dog and a third that made little progress. When Foxy met Eric she was ready to draw blood. It makes me laugh to think of Eric getting into his truck with my barking snarling dog in the cab, Who does that?
Now we have a stable dog that is push button on a lease. Will respond to verbal commands off a leash. The dog is a pleasure to walk and play fetch with. She does not go ballistic when people come into our house and I am confident enough to allow my dog to approach new people. Thanks Eric you have done a wonderful job with our dog.

My 9 month old male Field Labrador Retriever was in need of behavior training! I wasn't making great progress with this cute but very hard-headed--fearless puppy! I read about Eric James/DogMastery and called him immediately. Eric was able to board my dog and put him through obedience training for 7 weeks. I wanted my dog to do the basic things such as sit, come, stay, heel etc. After working with my dog a few weeks, Eric gave me great insight into my dog's special personality traits and characteristics. In 7 weeks Eric turned over my trained puppy! It is a pleasure to have this dog responding to the basic commands. I'm enjoying him as opposed to feeling overwhelmed. I continue to practice with my dog, daily, the training Eric taught. I want to enjoy this best friend.

Eric James is the "Dog Whisperer", nothing less. He has that 6th sense that is unexplainable. We have a 3 year old German Sheppard that was completely out of control. I was very nervous having him around people, could barely take him on walks and he ran me, I could not run with him!
Eric was able to completely change his behavior and taught him commands that I am still blown away by. I can now put my dog in a "down" position and regardless of the circumstances he will not move, that includes cars coming towards him. I truly thought it was too late for my dog to be trained but Thank God Eric didn't. I can't recommend him highly enough.

I had the distinct pleasure of working with Mr. James to secure the Schutzhund 3 title with my Rottweiler. Rotties are wonderful dogs, but it takes a helper with insight and sage wisdom to help the breed reach it fullest potential. To that end, Eric James is second to none! With his assistance, I was one of a handful of US owner-handlers to achieve a Sch3 with a Rottweiler in less than 1 year. It is without saying that I owe a great deal of gratitude to Mr. James for helping us exceed our goals. In light of these factors, Team DogMastery (Mr. James et.al) have my highest endorsement for all canine training.

I was very fortunate and grateful that I ran across Mr. James and DogMastery. I had been looking for a solid black German Shepherd that had the temperament to be great with my kids. I work for Allied Waste Management and see ALOT of pure breed dogs on my routes. When my co-worker told me about these amazing dogs, I didn't believe him. I went and saw first hand Eric's work, dedication, patience and admiration of the GSD. I currently own a 15 month old out of his V-litter. (Viktor) We put him through the puppy management program and just enrolled him in the Home/Family protection program. Viktor is excellent with my family, children, kids friends and goes with us to all my sons soccer games. I haven't been to a soccer game or swim meet where at least one person hasn't asked the question. Where did you get that well behaved dog? I always say DogMastery and it's not cheap to own a reliable, well behaved pet. ;-)
Without question a 5 star experience!

We sent our puppy, Jack, to Eric and are very happy with the results. Jack is a very energetic 6 month old German Shepherd. Our daughter trained her GSD with Eric over 15 years ago and we just couldn't imagine training with anyone else. Taking Jack out with us now is a real joy. Eric follows up and stays in contact to make sure everything goes well after training is done. 5 stars all the way!

Marc Eric is amazing! His expertise comes from decades of working with dogs. He is patient, knowledgeable and supportive. We purchased a 13 month old dog from him who was almost finished with obedience training and now is being trained for protection. We meet with Marc Eric or one of his trainers several times each week to work on training. The last time we had a dog was more than 25 years ago so we probably needed more training than the dog! Our pup is fun to be around, loves kids and swimming and has already gained a reputation in the neighborhood for being the best behaved dog around. Almost every day we have someone approach us asking 'Who trained your dog?' because he is calm and well behaved in all situations. Marc Eric is responsive to all our questions (and there are many!) and is intent on making sure the dog is trained to fit into our lifestyle (lots of activity, three cats and three adults in the household, hiking in local parks, lots of coming and going etc.) We couldn't be happier with our choice of both dog and trainer!

We have an American Mastiff puppy and she is VERY big. So we had to have her trained. We tried another company that was a waste of time & money. One day I took my American Mastiff and I saw this man with his two dogs that were so well trained I couldn't believe it. He told me Dogmastery had trained them. So I called and talk to Marc and we set up a time to meet. He explained his program to me and I signed our dog up. Marc and his team first worked with our dog. Then came our training. Marc took a lot of time and answered all our questions. Our dog is now very well trained and we have learned a lot too. I would highly recommend this company. When we get another dog Marc will be my first call.

Our new puppy Willow is so quick and super smart and although is very playful and highly energetic, she is growing to be one with impressive intelligence and is building a strong bond with every member of our family. We are very happy that our first attempt to purchase a puppy from another breeder fell through as my cousin would not have had the chance to refer us to DogMastery. It was worth the wait!

Marc Eric trained my labradoodle puppy -- starting at 9 months old. He left a bouncy, jumpy, chewing, running away puppy, and returned very polite, well mannered, and much better behaved. I also appreciate how he looks out for the family, as there are many nights when I am home alone. Marc has been very responsive, and offered to work with my kids as well to help teach them how to manage the new commands with the puppy. Our first family dog, and Marc has made the transition far easier! Thank you!

I contacted Dogmastery for advice on training my stubborn adolescent Mastiff. MEJ contacted me promptly to setup a consultation to assess my dog. He was upfront and realistic about the needs of my dog, as well as the follow up that I needed to do in order to change his behavior. After completing training with Dogmastery, my dog is much easier to handle and well on his way to being the obedient dog that I've hoped to have. The only thing that I would have done differently would have been to contact Marc Eric sooner. Lesson learned... I will continue to use Dogmastery in the future for all of my pet training needs!

Eric James is very methodical albeit scientific in his wholistic approach to dog training which benefits both dog and handler.The DogMastery breeding program compliments any working dog training course and his bloodline Mutigen Zwinger is crafted using the finest of genetics found in the working dog world today.

Well what can we say, we've been bring our training needs to Dog Mastery for 10 years. When it comes to bringing out the full genetic capability of your dog they are second to none. It may seem that they only specialize in German Shepherds but that could not be more untrue. They have the knowledge of every breed's tendencies and are very adaptive to your dogs specific needs. We are forever indebted to Dog Mastery for all the great work they have put into our companions.

Some review??s come from a family or individuals out of obligation or request. This review is written out of pure respect and passion for the interactions we have had with Eric James and Dog Mastery. Being 10 year clients we started out with our dog Gunner who is the most ideal home and family protection dog anyone could ever ask for. During his training Eric always kept in mind our 4 children and the openness of our ranch to their many young friends, as well as our large friend and extended family base. Gunner is perfect around children and in ten years has never jumped on or even considered aggression to little ones. On the street our in defense of home or property he has been trained to perfection. Aloof to strangers and constantly vigilante if senses the slightest danger it will set him into a mode that will literally stop a gang fight. In 2008 as we exited a boat dock in Northern California two groups of men were rushing towards us from each side in the beginning staged of a bats and knives gang fight. My wife and I had all 4 of our children at the time ages 4, 6, 12, & 16. Gunner formed an offensive circle around us on his lead, that pushed the fight away from us and his aggressive barking and attempts to attack got all of the fighting men??s attention. This safety barrier allowed us to get to our car and safely remove ourselves from this scary situation. On many occasions this well trained dog has shown his training and intelligence to the benefit and safety of our family.
Seeing that our Gunner is aging we decided to get him a mate. Eric James and Dog Mastery coordinated our timing with his T litter. We purchased Stella who unfortunately died by ingesting poison at 6 months old. When selecting her from the litter we were torn between her and her sister. We eventually selected Stella as she was the largest female but always liked the drive and personality of her sister, the runt. Stella??s death was extended over a week and a half and no expense was spared in an effort to save her. In the end our family suffered the loss of our new loved one. My wife Lisa taking this the hardest of all, she was truly devastated. One night Eric James asked us to meet him in his home town of Orinda. Upon meeting him he presented us with Seven, the runt sister of Stella who had already completed puppy training. Eric was holding this special dog back to be sold as a fully trained adult. As a family we were stunned by the gift and the true kindness and generosity of our trainer seeing our family suffer and trying to help ease our pain. As Gunner was, Seven is now in training at Dog Mastery. She is all that we thought she would be as a puppy, with great drive, intelligence and natural tendency to protect. As my wife??s dog she has been involved in all the training work and has found it to become an extremely enjoyable hobby. I might add that I would not like to be the bad guy between her and her dog. We cannot say enough about Eric James, the Dog Mastery staff and quality of animals that come from them. We have recommended many of our friends and family and will be Dog Mastery clients until Mr. James hangs up the leash.
Sincerely,
Joshua & Lisa Thompson

Aloof to strangers and constantly vigilante if senses the slightest danger it will set him into a mode that will literally stop a gang fight. In 2008 as we exited a boat dock in Northern California two groups of men were rushing towards us from each side in the beginning staged of a bats and knives gang fight. My wife and I had all 4 of our children at the time ages 4, 6, 12, & 16. Gunner formed an offensive circle around us on his lead, that pushed the fight away from us and his aggressive barking and attempts to attack got all of the fighting men??s attention. This safety barrier allowed us to get to our car and safely remove ourselves from this scary situation. On many occasions this well trained dog has shown his training and intelligence to the benefit and safety of our family.
Seeing that our Gunner is aging we decided to get him a mate. Eric James and Dog Mastery coordinated our timing with his T litter. We purchased Stella who unfortunately died by ingesting poison at 6 months old. When selecting her from the litter we were torn between her and her sister. We eventually selected Stella as she was the largest female but always liked the drive and personality of her sister, the runt. Stella??s death was extended over a week and a half and no expense was spared in an effort to save her. In the end our family suffered the loss of our new loved one. My wife Lisa taking this the hardest of all, she was truly devastated. One night Eric James asked us to meet him in his home town of Orinda. Upon meeting him he presented us with Seven, the runt sister of Stella who had already completed puppy training. Eric was holding this special dog back to be sold as a fully trained adult. As a family we were stunned by the gift and the true kindness and generosity of our trainer seeing our family suffer and trying to help ease our pain. As Gunner was, Seven is now in training at Dog Mastery. She is all that we thought she would be as a puppy, with great drive, intelligence and natural tendency to protect. As my wife??s dog she has been involved in all the training work and has found it to become an extremely enjoyable hobby. I might add that I would not like to be the bad guy between her and her dog. We cannot say enough about Eric James, the Dog Mastery staff and quality of animals that come from them. We have recommended many of our friends and family and will be Dog Mastery clients until Mr. James hangs up the leash.
Sincerely,
Joshua & Lisa Thompson

When my husband brought home a 3 week old German Shepherd, I wasn't thrilled, to say the least. Not only was I not ready for a new dog, but I definitely had never considered a German Shepherd. He assured me he would take charge and do the work it would take to care for Fred, including training. After a referral to DogMastery, he contacted Eric James. From the first meeting at our home, I could see this was no joke. This was going to be top notch training and that's what it's been. At 7 months old, our German Shepherd is amazing! Not only is he obedient but he is wonderful with our four kids, ranging from 19 to 2 years old. With every training session he continues to exceed our expectations. Thank you Eric and staff. What could've been a negative experience has turned out to be a great choice for our family, due to your awesome training program. We look forward to watching Fred continue to grow under your guidance.

When my husband and I decided to purchase a new puppy, we visited several kennel/training facilities in the area and spoke with many breeders throughout the country. We ultimately choose Marc Eric James and DogMastery and couldn't be happier with our decision. Our little girl goes everywhere with our family and people are amazed at how well behaved she is during my kids baseball games. She's currently enrolled in DogMastery's Home and Family protection program and is the star of the class! If you want a great dog or need training, we highly recommend DogMastery!

DogMastery has provided our K9 family with three beautiful, healthy and loyal German Shepherds. Our male dog??s acquired thru DogMastery have shown excellent drives in all three needs for sport work and are loving companions that can be completely trusted in the general public. We take our dogs everywhere with us, and expect a stable temperament from our K9??s , DogMastery has not disappointed us! Our female dog is now getting certified for therapy work, and is completing her American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen certification. We are proud to show off our dogs and get so many compliments about there coats and conformation.

DogMastery has made acquiring and owning a true German Shepherd simple and affordable for our family!
Training has also never been simpler for us, DogMastery meets our busy schedule and has no problem traveling to meet us and even come to our home. The prep work and foundation taught to the dog??s before they were even sold to us was obvious in their behavior. Our veterinarian was astounded by the health from all three of our dogs. Our dog??s are extremely tolerant when being examined by our vet and we are complimented on their obedience in the veterinary office.
There is nothing worse and more embarrassing then a poorly behaved patient!!!
A holistic, raw, hormone free diet was fed, and recommended to be continued by DogMastery. If you are looking for a sole company to turn to for a complete K9 package I wouldn??t recommend anyone other than DogMastery !

We invested in our first protection dog with MEJ and what an exceptional animal! He is truly an Allstar with a loving nature and at the same time when called upon for protection work, he performs like an Allstar. I feel completely safe with him at my side at all times and on our daily power hikes in the woods. We highly reccommend Marc Eric and Dogmastery!

My family and I have been dealing with Eric James for years. Eric is a top notch dog trainer who truly has a passion for what he does. His job isn't done once the training of your dog is complete. He takes the time to do follow up with you and stays in touch with you on a regular basis. I have met many trainers before and Eric is the Dog Master. He has a way with dogs that is beyond anyone else's potential. He took a stubborn dog of ours and made her into the most obedient and best protection dog we have ever owned. Eric is easy to deal with because of his dedication. He not only answers questions when you have them but can diagnose a problem you are having over the phone and set up a training session to quickly remedy the issues you are having within a couple classes. I highly recommend Dog Mastery to anyone who is looking for a trainer. His techniques work and it shows. This is coming from someone who has experienced it first hand. He adapts to any type of training you want for your dog. If you want handler protection out in a public place he can do that. If you want protection for you and your family at your home then he does that as well. He makes the sessions fun and practical. If you don't believe me then give him a call.

My husband and I decided to send our two older dogs (10 and 11 years old) to DogMastery for the obedience program. At first we were skeptical about sending them away for such a long period of time due to their age. But WOW! When we got them back, they were different dogs! All the bad habits that they have done for years were gone! Now our household is more enjoyable and I believe our dogs are happier too!
I would highly recommend obedience training for ALL dogs, and DogMastery is definitely the route to go!

I was looking for a German Shepherd dog and looked throughout the country. I finally decided on Dogmastery and Marc Eric James based on reviews of his abilities and the results of his training that I read on line and conversations I had with him. Although I was in Minnesota MEJ ensured that my new family member was well suited and well trained for me and my family needs. I was not able to visit with Marc Eric and Tara prior to her coming home so I was a bit nervous when I picked her up from the airport. Immediately Tara impressed me with her abilities. She was exactly as advertised! Tara was simply the best dog I have ever owned. Unfortunately Tara passed earlier this year. The compassion that was displayed by MEJ and his team when we informed him was comforting and truly a first class act. As my family and I contemplate another dog there is only one person we want training our new family member ?? Marc Eric James and Dogmastery.

The knowledge, assistance and wealth of information I received from Marc Eric and the DogMastery staff was exceptional. I was looking for a dog capable of performing many tasks due to my families hectic schedule and my yearly long seasons. I travel a minimum of once a week for seven months out of the year and my wife wanted a live alarm in the home. My family needed a dog that was manageable, great in the general public and exceptional with my kids. I had heard about Marc aka EJ from many people and once we spoke, I understood why people speak so highly of his abilities. Sultan is a magnificently trained dog that keeps my family safe while I'm away during the season. Thanks MEJ and DogMastery!

We got our puppy from Marc when she was two months old. We were extremely pleased that she was crate trained and potty trained, so that she slept in her crate at night, and easy to retrain for where she went potty. She's of good temperment, smart, and very affectionate. Now we've been relying on Marc for further training. I highly recommend Marc for his puppies and training.

I bought a German Shepherd named Zeus. I can not imagine a better experience buying a dog. I also asked for Dog Mastery to help me train the dog and i have had nothing but the best experience. If you are looking for a German Shepherd or are just looking for someone to help you train a dog that you have i would highly recommend this company.

Dog Mastery does it all! Schutzhund Training, Security Training, General Obedience, etc... I have a Shepherd, Doberman and Pitbull. Both the Shepherd and Doberman were hand-picked for me by Dog Mastery to suit my family and business needs. Not only has the staff at Dog Mastery helped get them into shape for their respective tasks (Schutzund for the Shepherd, Security for the Doberman, Obedience for the Pitbull), but they also helped me to build adequate living facilities for my pets and taught me to feed them the proper foods for maximum health. Marc has an exceptional understanding of pets' needs, drives and personality styles and he tailors their training regimens to suit. I tried a couple of trainers and even tried training my pitbull myself, only to get dubious results. I found out about Dog Mastery from a friend, gave them a call, and have since been nothing but impressed with the unlocking of the great potential inside in each of my pets. They are a cut above any other trainer/training system I have encountered. Having well-trained, obedient pets will give you peace of mind whether at home, away or out walking the dogs. I am happy that I made the investment in making sure my furry friends are as well!

I have a 3 year old rescue Chocolate Lab named, Rocco. It??s my understanding that Rocco had some very basic home training during the early stages of his life. So even though home life with the family was mostly quiet and pleasant, he was completely out of control when he came in contact with other dogs or house guests. Having an active family with a busy social life, greetings (of which there are many) in general were dreaded.

Thankfully, Marc James came into our lives. After researching trainers in the area and seeing some of his dogs in action, I knew right away that I was going to work with Marc. We sent Rocco to his 4 week board & training program. When he came back, we could not believe the changes that had taken place. Gone was the unruly and super aggressive behavior. In its place was a loving, much more sociable member of our family.

Most importantly, Marc has worked with my entire family on how we can be better owners ourselves. I cannot express enough just how happy we all are. There is no doubt in my mind that for any and every dog that we get, we will use Marc and Dog Mastery Inc.

There are people who can train dogs and can??t communicate, and then there are people who can communicate but can??t train dogs. Marc Eric excels in both arenas. I've been fortunate to watch him train several dogs and handlers over the past 6 months, while assisting me from BH to Schutzhund 3. Rookie handlers are introduced to different theories and taught how to be successful and communicate effectively with there pet at the dogs pace, not the owner. Experienced competitors receive input on how to improve their technique, methods, and communication with their dog. I've found training with DogMastery is always insightful and I always come away with a new approach on what I can do to improve my handling and dogs performance. Marc's approach is to give the handler the skill set and knowledge to improve your performance as a team. As a helper, he is exceptional! I've worked with many trainers and clubs and very few have the ability to read a dog and address any area in which your pet might be deficient. He is one of only a handful of trainers in the world who I would classify as a world level trainer and helper. Most importantly, I trust him completely with the safety of my dog. I recommend him without reservation to anyone interested in purchasing a german shepherd or training there dog in protection or obedience sports!

I was very fortunate to purchase my first German shepherd from Eric James who lived to be 14 years old. He was a magnificent dog out of his kennel, vom Mutigen Zwinger, that performed every single task we could imagine. We purchased Draq as a puppy and then sent him back to DogMastery to complete his training. My wife and I have never seen or owned a German Shepherd that behaved so well in the general public, but in a split second would give his life. He was a joy until the day he passed. We just put a deposit on a puppy out his U-litter. Without question, we highly recommend Mr. James and DogMastery!
