Professional Woodlands & Houston Area Dog Trainers


Travis Yantes – Owner/Head Trainer

Travis covers all of The Woodlands area, including Porter, Spring, Kingwood, and more.

Travis Yantes has decided to take his dream/passion of working with dogs to the next level by becoming a professional dog trainer. Though very experienced with handling and training dogs, he simply never looked at it as a career until recently. He soon found out there is nothing more rewarding than helping other people and their canine companions. Travis was trained and certified by John Van Olden of Canine Trade Group. He is also a certified CGC Evaluator for the AKC, through that he can administer the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy program, CGC, AKC Community Canine (the advanced level of CGC), Urban CGC and Trick Dog tests.

With over eleven years of experience in the oil and gas industry, along with a bachelor’s degree in Project Management, Travis has acquired a number of skills that come in handy as a dog trainer. These include being detailed-oriented; familiar in meeting and achieving organizational and personal goals; meeting objectives under strict budget guidelines and deadlines; and capable of working well in a team environment, as well as individually. These skills, along with excellent customer relations, exemplify his dedication, professionalism, and passion for reaching goals and satisfying customers/clients.

Travis believes that if you can dream it, you can achieve it. He will work tirelessly with you and your dog to reach mutual training goals. His passion is evident. Houston, we don’t have a dog problem because we will do whatever it takes to get the job done and help your situation.
