Joe Plote - The Dog Whisperer. I first met Joe when he was teaching a puppy obedience class at the Pet Smart and I enrolled my 6 month old rescue Brittany in for classes. It was obvious from the beginning that Joe has a special way with dogs. Joe recognized natural talents in Lucy as a hunter and agreed to take her on as a project. Lucy is a total family dog, so Joe worked with me differently than normal, I bring Lucy to him once or twice a week for an hour and he teaches me as he teaches her. After 1 year, my long-tailed Brit went 4 for 4 in her first weekend of hunt tests and earned her Junior Hunter title. Since then we have worked at getting her finished and ready for next years Masters. Lucy has taken pretty quickly to everything from holding point to honoring, but she didn't like to retrieve. Several months Joe patiently tried different techniques and we rejoiced at every small break through. Yesterday we went out on an actual hunt to see how she would do. It was perfect she held steady through everything including a double flush and aggressively searched for and retrieved every downed bird like she had been doing it all her life. If you are looking for a trainer who can bring out the very best in your dog, Joe is your man.

Joe has done a great job working with my very sweet but soft and gun shy english setter "Kate". He has been very in tune to getting her to a good and happy place in the field without rushing her to try and impress. With his work she hunted by my side this fall forthe first time! We still have lots of work with her but with Joes help she has improved by leaps and bounds and now loves the field! Well done Joe! Cant wait to get her back to you this spring!

I had Joe train my male Brittany trigger the summer and early fall of 09' and i couldn't be any happier , i told him what i wanted out of my dog and he made it happen. I'm very pleased with Joe and his work he kept me up to date the whole time sent pics and i was able to come and sit in on some of the training sessions. I would refer anyone to Joe. Give him a call you won't be disappointed.

We purchased our first Britanny from Joe in July and she a wonderful puppy. She is now eight months old, very smart, very obidient, great with the kids, and an absolutely perfect family dog. While I am not a hunter, I have found her to be easily trainable and it is clear she has hunting instincts (anytime she sees a bird, she locks onto it). I would highly recommend any Brittany from Jill's future liters.

I purchased my dog from Joe about 6 weeks ago and my fiancee and I could not have asked for a better dog. He has the best temperament and is very smart. Although we will not be using him to do much hunting, it is not hard to tell he has it in his blood! We can already tell he will be a great family dog. I would refer anyone looking for a great hunting dog or companion to Joe.

I picked up a dog from Joey about two months ago and he's been the best dog I've ever owned, hands down. He's very intelligent and well mannered, most people don't believe me when I tell them he's only a few months old. He's well socialized and is perfectly happy to do rough and tumble one minute and be the gentle lap-dog the next. He's so far been a great companion, his range of expression and emotion is astonishing. I don't hunt myself, but that doesn't stop him from hunting birds, squirrels, and rabbits around the yard! He's been pointing and stalking since the day I brought him home. He's a great retriever as well. I couldn't be happier with him; he's a dog not only bred for hunting and sport, but for family as well.

I purchased my 12 week old female from Joe and could not be happier. She is a well socialized puppy who has been a good house and field dog. After 4 weeks we have had her on birds in the field with absolutly no trouble...and now getting prepared to introduce her to the gun. Joe has been extremely helpful in answering all of my questions, (and I have had a lot), and taking the time to work with me to make sure our new pup is getting proper instruction. Give Joe a will not be disappointed.
