I would recommend Dan to anyone looking for the dog training – whether with a new puppy or an older dog. He has a wealth of knowledge and experience, and had a “fix” for any problem I encountered. Dan used humane methods for training. Every hour session ended with Dan telling me not to hesitate to contact him if I had a question or a problem.
Bonnie S. Jamesport, NY

Dan is very personable and understands the needs of each owner and dog is different. Charlie was very shy, timid and resistant when we got him but through training he became more confident, well behaved, and we can now use all of the skills Charlie learned in our everyday life. Dan does a great job!

In just a short time, London has mastered the necessities that make a dog a true pleasure to have in your home and family. The ease in which you impart your wisdom makes the learning process a very rewarding one. We are very pleased we had the opportunity to work with you and reiterate from both a personal and professional perspective how much fun we had. Thanks for all your insight.

Just a note to thank you for turning Otis – the 140 lb. Bullmastiff and terror of the neighborhood – into a pussycat.
Dan and Martha J. Mattituck, NY

I have known Dan Gebbia for twelve years. His competent guidance has helped many an owner find pleasure in their animal through a successful training program. His method results in a well trained pet and a satisfied owner. I am pleased to recommend Mr. Gebbia.
William Z., D.V.M. Southold, NY

It is my pleasure to write a letter of recommendation for Dan Gebbia. Dan was a huge help to us. He took time to talk about all my concerns and then asked me about other problem areas of behavior. This discussion resulted in a customized plan of training to address my dog’s individual faults. Dan had a most sppropriate manner as he helped me, and was extremely supportive and understanding. He never “talked down” to me and was generous with his praise and encouragement.
Jennifer P. New York, NY

You are, in short, a terrifically talented professional dog trainer.
Art K. East Hampton, NY

Dan began to help me train Shadow the last week of June. I began to see a difference in Shadow in a few short weeks of training, and by the end of the summer, I am proud to say Shadow is a model puppy. I would highly recommend Dan Gebia to anyone with a dog. Dan Gebbia not only gives you the confidence to be able to train your dog, but he also makes training a family activity and fun.
Margaret M. Southampton, NY

I called Dan Gebbia, the trainer recommended by the veterinarian. I was very impressed with Dan’s professionalism and support. He also encouraged me to call him with any questions. Dan Gebbia receives my hearty recommendation as a professional dog trainer.
Judy M. Shelter Island, NY

We found Mr. Gebbia’s basic obedience course humane, clear and, most of all, effective. He demonstrated both sensitivity to our special needs and was extremely competent, knowledgeable and patient with us all.
Susan and Hy P. Sag Harbor, NY

The whole encounter was a very positive experience and not a negative one. Your concern for our animal is obvious from the follow-up advice - we have certainly not felt abandoned. Yours was not a push button program, but one which was specially tailored to both our dog and our family.
David and Bonnie P. Southold, NY

“Dan’s professional attitude was apparent the minute he drove up to our house. He explained and explicitly demonstrated every new skill being taught. Dan made learning easy and fun. The exercises were simple to follow, but had a lasting impact. Overall Dan Gebbia is a phenomenal dog trainer.”
James M. Jamesport NY

In retrospect, hiring Dan Gebbia was one of the best decisions we have made in respect to “Sydney”. His techniques and exercises become functional in daily life with your dog.
Arthur and Marcia P. Southampton, NY

We want to thank you for helping us train Boner into a pet we can enjoy. To say we were amazed would be an understatement!
Carol and Marco O. Westhampton Beach, NY

We transformed Dylan from a dog who would pull us down the street and would not sit or lie down regardless of the bribe offered, to a well behaved Setter who we now can fully enjoy both in the house and outside both on the leash and off.
Dave and Mary M. East Hampton, NY

“People often ask me, ‘How is your dog so well behaved.’ I tell them several sessions with Dan Gebbia is the reason why.”
Dominic C. Southampton, NY

I have no reservations in recommending Mr. Gebbia. I considered the results he obtained with our dog amazing, by turning a disobedient but loving dog into a responsive loving pet.
Martin G. Southampton, NY

This letter is to let you know how much your training techniques have helped Lucy and myself through the challenging stages of an 8 month old Australian Shepherd. Lucy is very well behaved and listens to her commands just like you taught us. Our time with you was well spent and has taught us both how to communicate with one another on a level that I know would not have been as complete if it were not for your expertise.

A Selection of Testimonials

“Dan is a professional and caring dog trainer who I have had the opportunity to work with 3 times throughout the last 20 years. Each time he has helped us to achieve magical results with all 3 dogs.”
Erica M. Easthampton NY

“Because of your guidance, Dan, Henry has learned to walk and heel beautifully, will sit and stay on command, will sit to be petted and not lunge at the first friendly hand or face, and no longer attacks the toilet paper roll. Thanks again for showing us just how rewarding it is to have a dog that is so eager to please and behave.”
Ruth W. Laurel, NY

Dan Gebbia with two of his clients

“I hired Dan Gebbia to help me train my 7 month old puppy. He urinated when he got excited and sometimes nipped at my hand. He had previous training with two other dog trainers. When Sparky met Dan he was still urinating and biting. Dan had a series of exercises for each problem that not only made more sense but also was much more effective. My puppy responded immediately. Sparky can sit, down, stay, come and heel.
I was impressed with Dan’s professionalism. I am sure under his continued guidance, my puppy would be happily doing back flips.”
Chandler I. Southampton, NY and Palm Beach FL

“Kathy and I would like to thank you for making life with Max a pleasurable experience. The weekly lessons and exercises you recommended, have reinforced the discipline and behaviors we were seeking in an older dog.”
Len G. Southampton, NY

“The training sessions you provided were well worth the price paid. I could not recommend your services more highly for anyone who would like a well behaved pet. I particularly appreciated your treating us with a level of respect not often seen these days.”
Bob and Nancy H. Southold NY

“Dan Gebbia is an excellent dog trainer and also an excellent teacher of dog owners. He can ‘read’ a dog quickly, adjust his instructions accordingly and help one attain what one thought was impossible fast.”
Joan C. Southampton, NY and New York, NY

I want to express our thanks and gratitude to you for our excellent private dog training course. From beginning to end it was always enlightening and always fun. Throughout our lessons together, you always demonstrated enthusiasm, insight, encouragement and patience (the patience was more necessary for Kevin and me than for either of our dogs).
Susan and Kevin R. Bridgehampton, NY and New York, NY

“Our Lakeland Terrier just completed a 7 session course with Dan Gebbia and we are extremely delighted with the results. Dan Gebbia is a dog trainer that uses a logical and kindly approach with animals. They respond to him immediately. Equally important is that he is a delightful individual who we felt extremely comfortable with in our home. As a recently retired teacher, we consider Dan to be a very successful teacher. Laura B. Easthampton, NY

“You were whole-heartedly recommended by my veterinarian, my groomer and several of my friends. I am so very glad that I chose you. We work together well and you made training fun for Christie and me. She is eager for her “lesions” and absolutely loves when you come for a “visit”. I trained my previous collies and I always thought that I had good and well-mannered dogs. After working with you though, I learned that my dogs had never really fulfilled their potential and that I could have had much more rewarding relationships with them. I settled for “good” when I could have had “great!”.
Maria D. East Quogue, NY

Thank you so much for your training sessions with Georgia and me. You have a fine talent and personality for this work. I might also mention that your training of me was done with the same patience and good will.
Janet S. Orient, NY

“Dan has a very organized approach to training, but was willing to adapt his program to Moxie’s particular needs, eg., her youthful exuberance. He was patient with us and Moxie who warmed to his firm but gentle approach.”
Howard and Susan M. Southampton, NY

“A million thanks for helping us start Mackie on the path to good citizenship. In spite of her Scottie nature she learned so much, and of course she loved you.”
Barbara M. Nassau Point, NY

“Dan is a diligent and intuitive trainer and is also very caring and sensitive to the individual personalities of both his canine and human students.”
Christl M. Southampton, NY

“He (Dan Gebbia) came highly recommended by ARF Staff as a trainer. Dan’s calm demeanor kept both Max and I motivated. Most impressive was Dan’s ability to connect with Max, which provided for me a practical example of how to create a partnership with my new dog.”
