"We are a non profit 501c3 dog rescue and found Ben and Haven Dog Training at the final hour, trying to help a dog needing rescue and behavioral training in order to avoid being euthanized.
From beginning to end, Ben and his team were professional, caring, honest and very direct about the situation, which was a difficult one.
The dog, a pittie mix, went to Ben for a 30 day board and train and was completely turned around. Ben gave this boy, love, respect, guidance and also worked with his foster to help her learn what he needed in order to be a safe and happy dog. Working with Ben on this “project dog” was nothing short of amazing. We have now sent other dogs to Ben and hope we will be lucky enough to continue working with him in the future. He listens to us, openly discusses various training methods and is always available to talk about concerns we may have.
It is clear Ben loves his work and most of all dogs he helps. We highly recommend Ben and Haven Dog Training" -Kate Z. Director of Underhound Railroad
"As a Veterinarian and American Pit Bull Terrier fur parent, I feel it is imperative our babies are the most well trained, best behaved dogs possible. That is why I wholeheartedly trust Haven Dog Training with Zuri and Kosmo. I highly recommend Ben to anyone looking for a great dog trainer, and even better person" -Stephen H.
"Fantastic experience. After spending over $6k in house repairs when our dog destroyed our entire floor I was at my wits end. After choosing the 5 day board and train our dog not only stopped destroying the house but can now also walk nicely on a leash. I’m so glad we decided to make this investment, thanks Ben!" -the Walden family
"What can I say about Ben that hasn't already been said? From the moment we met him to the last part of our final session, Ben has been a crucial part of the relief that now exists within our walls. It is extremely evident that he cares about what he does and cares even more about bestowing that knowledge unto his clients. My girlfriend and I both feel empowered when dealing with our goofy pets. Ben is so knowledgable about what he does and was never quick to leave any session. He allocates enough time to allow for owners, like myself, to really get into detail about their concerns. I feel the investment I have made wasn't solely into a company but more so into my own family and its overall well being. The methodology that was used is truly unqiue, I love that the training did not revolve around preventing your dog from being a dog and instead was about convincing them to act the right way as its own reward syatem. I would recommend Ben to anyone looking to build a lasting relationship and instill manners into their canine companions" -Evan H.
"I have a 7 month silver lab, and Ben has done such a wonderful job with him! Just within one lesson Ben had my puppy walking on the leash without dragging me, and had him placing on his Mat! Ben is very patient , and he communicates well with the dog! I would highly recommend him" -Ashley J.
"Ben is a fantastic trainer! In a single 1 hour session he made a tangible difference in our dog Billy's behavior, confidence, and even his attitude towards us. Ben took the time to teach us how to make our dog's life more fun, but structured, by explaining the why to each command. Ben was very easy to work with,patient, and clearly very knowledgeable about his craft. I would recommend Ben without any reservation to anyone looking to improve their own and their dogs lives" -Jacob H.
"Ben has been amazing! He came out to our home to meet Tank (the pup) and give us his first impressions and informed us what he thought about Tank and his potential. Ben is very knowledgeable and truly seems to live his work. During Tank's training Ben gave us daily updates and pictures of Tank throughout his training. We have been very pleased with Ben and his program. We really like that in Ben's boarding programs the dogs live with the trainers instead of a kennel" -Lee N.
"Ben is amazing. Very knowledgeable and patient. He has helped our family with our 3 year old German Shepherd we just got. He is doing soooo much better.
Thank you Ben. We are so blessed that we found you to help us" -Jolie M.
"Working with Haven was one of the best decisions I’ve made. My dog had been turned down by other trainers and we had given up hope. Ben took a dog with severe dog reactivity and in under a month my dog was a changed dog. Not only was he happy and stress free, I could take him around other dogs and walk him without any issues. I’d highly recommend working with Ben, especially if you have a dog with behavior issues" -Alexander Y.
"In short order, Ben showed us that our dogs were trying to be better to us than we knew. I have had dogs most of my life and thought I knew a fair bit about them. My wife is nearly as new to dogs as she is to me, and feels none of us are well trained. Within a few minutes of working with each of our dogs, individually of course, Ben had them minding commands and awaiting the next thing to be done. Different dogs than WE had seen.
Ben showed us a better understanding of our dog's motives and we have seen vast improvement in our dogs behavior. The dogs now seem to want to do the things we want them to, and Not the things we don't.
Thank you Ben!

There may be no help for husband training, but you've gotten our pooches out of the dog house ;-)"
"Ben at Haven Dog Training helped my rescue dog learn how to behave around other dogs and walk nicely on a leash. It was excellent to see how she seemed happier and more relaxed with the boundaries that Ben taught her. Most of all Ben did such a good job teaching me and my family how to continue her training and maintain her good behavior so we truly have a changed dog!" -Sophia E.
"Ben is fantastic and very knowledgeable about training. He is super passionate about what he does. There is not enough positive things to say about the way he conducts his courses. Ben will make you feel like your dog is part of his family the way he treats your best friend. 20 out of 10 recommend" -Brian N.
