Les is a balanced family dog trainer and has helped hundreds of people successfully train their dogs. Training has become his passion since Executive Canine Services opened in 2014. He loves all breeds and appreciates each dog’s individual personality. It would be accurate to say, “Les has gone to the dogs” since opening his business.

Why working with us1

We make training fun and rewarding for the whole family including your dog.


We use proven and successful training methods including tools and strategies that can be applied effectively and consistently.

We love helping people who struggle with their dogs behavioral issues and draw on 40 plus years of experience from owning and training own dogs.

Why working with us3

Our training takes the mystery out of how to achieve having a well behaved dog.

Dog owners are given the knowledge and strategies needed to set their dogs up for success.


We are family dog trainers. We help families train their dogs of all breeds and ages to learn new skills or stop bad behavior. Dog training is an ongoing effort starting as a partnership between us and dog owners. We set each family up with the basics for creating successful relationships with their furry friends


We have worked with hundreds of families and their dogs. They come to us with different needs or issues. Each of them have different stories with happy outcomes. Here are a few of their stories.


Les was amazing with my dog and showed us a lot of simple tricks to make life so much easier with dog training. It is amazing how other behavior in everyday life corrected itself once we started training. Originally I signed up with training to improve my dogs lunging tendencies on walks but she also had terrible separation anxiety and would break out of her crate a lot, after we started training she hasn't broken out once. (And doesn't pull on the leash as much anymore) If your dog has any quirks you wish to improve I definitely recommend contacting executive canine services. He is very fair priced and honest, WELL worth the money and time. Thanks again Les!

Simply the best!! Les is fantastic. Helped us with our Lab pup. Provided us, as well our puppy with great training techniques. You can tell that Les loves what he does. He is patient, creative, and thinks outside the box to deal with any puppy related issue you might have. He made a world of difference in our pup, Mojo, and how he behaves. As always, it's all about repetition when training your dog, and lots of patience.I would highly recommend Les!! He's a very kind man, and absolutely brilliant at what he does. Thank you Les!!
