“Steve Debono is without question the first trainer I refer clients to. Steve is a rare combination of hands-on talent with the dogs, humility, compassion, and intelligence. He has been an invaluable resource for us at Austin Pets Alive! as a tried and true referral to adopters. Our Austin dog-owning community is lucky to have him!”

Steve’s War Against Phone Tag
I hate phone tag and I imagine so do you. So join me in waging war against this insidious time-waster!

Because I am hands on working with dogs or clients, I often cannot pick up my phone. This leaves me a backlog of voicemails to return. I set aside some time to call people back, only to reach their voicemail. They then call me back and once again I am unable to take the call. And back and forth we go. The fact is that once we finally do connect on the phone, the information I give is information I could have much more efficiently through an email. Phone tag is a huge time suck and high source of anxiety for me! So I’ve waged a War against Phone Tag and will only answer inquiries through email. If you’d like to speak with me before committing to one of our training plans, I offer low cost options such as Orientation Classes and Behavior Evaluations. I’m sorry for the inconvenience, but I do this so that I can maximize the time I spend helping my clients and dogs. Trust me, and I will help you too. Thanks for your understanding!
