My name is Javier Mendoza-Diek and I am a dog trainer, a Zoologist, and a veterinary technician. I was born and raised in Tegucigalpa, Honduras and I have always had an intense curiosity towards animals and more specifically their behaviors.
To me dog training is not all about fancy tricks, yes it is cool to get a dog to speak on command or dance a full dance routine but that is not what is relevant to the everyday pet owner. The truth about being successful on training a good dog has to do with rewarding the right state of mind and correcting the wrong one. A dog that is aware that his behavior has good or bad consequences is a dog that is more likely to make correct choices and therefore be a ‘good dog’.
We offer a wide range of training and board and train programs for your best friend.
Starting at an early age is really important in order to mold the way you want your dog to behave. Rewarding the right behavior reinforces and/ or strengthens the behavior.Read More
Private Sessions can be done anywhere, from your home, to specific locations where your dog might struggles more like at the veterinary clinic or the park.Read More
Board and train is boot camp for dogs. Just like boot camp for people, board and train for dogs allows me to start a new routine that will build good...Read More

We just got back our dog Hank yesterday. Javier and his staff are wonderful. You can tell they really love and care for all the dogs. I would recommend them to anyone who is having issues with their dog.
Javier and the entire staff at Proactive are nothing short of amazing. Dropping my little girl off for two weeks was a little scary but the minute I walked in their door I felt totally at ease and very safe. My Zoey girl is an amazing Labrottie and now she is calm, gentle and very well behaved thanks to Proactive Dog Training.
Javier and his team are the best. We signed up our 14-week-old Belgian Malinois/German Shepherd for his two-week training boot camp and she came back so well trained. If you know the breed, you'll know that says a lot. My wife and I are new puppy and new Belgian/Shepherd owners - so needless to say we were inexperienced. Proactive Dog Training did a fantastic job with both the pup and my wife and I. We're very impressed and highly recommend. Thank you Javier and team - we look forward to future trainings and boardings when we travel!!
