Everyday I come in to my training center, and I just do what I do. I don’t always give it a whole lot of thought, I simply offer my best each and every day. Letters like the one I received below remind me of how important my work is. I have the best clients.

A letter from Cinder

“After I attacked and nearly killed my brother Ash, everyone kept talking about a place called “Youth and Asia,” everyone one was upset and I was so scared. The, My owner learned about a man name Tyler Muto. We took a ride down to Niagara Street and Tyler said he would help my people teach me better manners. Ash and I have taken 5 lessons with Tyler. We have done so well! Our good behavior is even rubbing off on my brothers, Bud and Brutis. We now down/stay, heel, sit, and we are working on greeting people politely when they knock on the door.

I know we have a lot of work ahead of us and we have to practice every day but hopefully we can do it at home and won’t have to go to that far away place any time soon. Thank you Tyler, I owe you my life.” See the letter here: Letter from Cinder


I brought Jamie back home last night and had an incredible session with his owners! They really understand leash pressure after they started the Follow me/Yield to me exercise, and had him walking like a feather. Jamie is much more connected to them on-leash, and the can totally see the difference. I learned so much–Tyler you are truly gifted and it was an honor learning from you. Thanks to all of the other attendees–it was a joy to meet you, learn from watching you, and enjoy your work with your dogs. I hope to see you all again in the future.

As a veterinarian, I certainly respect and thrive on scientific reports and studies…. .  I’d already contacted two behaviorists and had only seen worsening in Jesse’s aggression over the past few years…. . I went to Tyler Muto with my dog Jesse Mae as a last resort. If he were unable to help me control her dog aggression, I would have to euthanize her…. My dogs both attended boot camp,  Now three months after the initial visit, I cannot thank Tyler Muto and his staff enough for their help with my girls. Leila’s less fearful. Both Jesse and Leila attend socialization classes regularly, and no longer show the terrifying reactivity they had previously…” Read the whole thing here: Dr. Erik Testimonial

I think you would be hard pressed to find many people better than Tyler in the country. I have watched a ton of his footage and his training is spot on.

Thank you Tyler for helping with Mama Josie when some people said she was a bad dog and gave up on her. In just the short amount of time I worked with her tonight it is amazing the change in her. She is a good dog ….thank you for seeing that in Mama.

Just want to thank Tyler for showing us how to prevent our 10-month German Shepherd Scully from jumping on and nipping at guests in our home. After one (yes, I said one!) in-home visit, this behavior came to a jaw-dropping halt! Scully still barks (which is a good thing) when she hears the doorbell or any commotion in our front vestibule, but as soon as I give the “come” and “place” commands, she turns into a focused, well-behaved pup. In one week, we have yet to use any remote reminders and she is a different dog (read: angel) with guests. Honestly, I can’t thank you enough! I had my daughter’s future in-laws over for dinner this weekend (people Scully has never met) and they raved about what a sweet, obedient and smart dog I have. I could go on…but I’m running out of superlatives.

Sadie had her first training session today – it went fantastic! We learned leash and door manners. When I first got there, Sadie physically dragged me through the door; however, at the end she walked out the door WITH me!! I feel like I have a whole new dog! THANK YOU TYLER!!!!!

I just wanted to let you and your staff know how impressed we were with your facility and training that our Lab received… When he came to you, walking on a leash was just about out of the question, and he was awful at dinner time. He would charge food and we feared he might be aggressive with it at some point .he would run over my children to get to the door when someone was there knocking….Its rare that someone listens and follows through with what they say they are going to do. You did!!… After a 1 week of boot camp, Fletch is a dream to walk on a leash, he has figured out where he fits in with our family and is a pleasure to be around. I will highly recommend you and your business in the future…” Read the whole thing here: Fletch Testimonial

Tyler. Your work is impressive. You’ve helped me in the past worth an unruly foster dog and essentially laid the ground work to turn him around and get him adoptable.

Hi Tyler. Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with Pearls progress on the leash. We took her for 2 walks around the neighborhood yesterday and she did great!  She only needed a couple very mild corrections. We even walked by a lady walking 2 small dogs, both of which were barking their heads off at us and Pearl just kept walking by. Seeing this kind of progress after a 15 min. leash walking lesson is impressive and just let’s us know we definitely chose the right trainer for her (and us). We have no doubt that with your help Pearl is going to be our dream dog!! Looking forward to our lesson on Tues. Have a great weekend.

One of my clients from the small group class I teach. They have never been able to get him to “down” on command, and using a variety of techniques that always work I couldn’t even get him to down. Within 15 minutes using the technique we learned on the weekend Charlie now “downs” on command! I thought the owners were going to start jumping up and down with excitement but they contained themselves so as to not overly excite him and have him pop back up! All thanks to Tyler Muto.

If you have not trained with Tyler Muto, get on it. Dude is amazing…

All thanks to you Tyler Muto, I am going to bed a better trainer and human being thanks to day one of your workshop. This past weekend was a game changer!

Thank you Tyler, I meant to say that earlier. It was very helpful to watch you work Monty & I realized how I move way too fast with him. You also confirmed a lot of things I was thinking about but double guessed myself.Excellent workshop!
– Jennifer Saven, Back To Basics Dog Training (After November 2013 Dog Aggression Seminar in Mansfield, Ohio)
