What Clients Are Saying

My Belgian Malinois, Echo, was a rescue from the animal shelter. She was showing very aggressive behavior around crates, Toys and people. She did not know any commands and did not know how to walk on a leash properly. John took her on and trained her for four weeks. Echo now knows over 15+ commands, can walk excellently on and OFF leash, is responsive to her E-collar training, is no longer aggressive towards her toys, food and other dogs! I can take her into many stores including those with other dogs and she is so focused on doing her job. Really looking into her being my service animal now. I would recommend this program and Mango Dogs/ Johns services to everyone and anyone.

Jordan Nickels - Fort Worth TX

My German shepherd Luca was reactive towards dogs especially in our apartment complex. He would lunge, growl, hyper-fixate, etc. After working with John for a few weeks at home, Luca has improved A LOT inside and outside of where we live. While he still gets a little nervous at times, he isn’t lunging or barking at other dogs when they walk by us. We’ve been able to work on his place out in public settings so he can watch other dogs go by. I’d highly recommend Mango Dogs for anyone who’s struggling with a reactive dog whether it’s a mild or severe case!

John Whitacre

Hey everyone! My name is John and I help struggling dog owners in the DFW.

I spent 4 years in the Marine Corps as a military dog handler and trainer but ultimately being away from my family for so long was too difficult. So I decided to combine my love for helping people and dogs at the same time if I re-entered civilian life as a professional dog trainer.

Enter Mango Dogs. These days my clients get a 100% personalized program created specifically for them. I can use more subtle techniques and still get my client's awesome results, and I provide extensive ongoing support (phone, email, and group classes) to our clients.

My partner and I have two awesome dogs Rogue and Delta. Delta is a Belgian Malinois, and she's a rescue dog that came with a lot of issues. She was very dog reactive, and now she helps me rehabilitate reactive and aggressive dogs everyday!

I know what it's like to have a dog who just loses its mind on the leash, and I know how good it can feel to walk that same dog anywhere without issues. My passion is helping dog owners feel the joy of a reliable dog, no matter the problems they started with. My goal is to be the last dog trainer you ever need. Support, Support, Support. I specialize in behavioral problems but I also help with leash walking and off-leash control.

Want to see if I’ll be a good fit?

The Mango Dogs Balanced Approach

As balanced trainers, we are able to take the great aspects from each style of training and utilize it where needed.

We use food, treats, praise, toys to encourage our dogs and our clients dogs to do the things that we want them to do. This type of motivation is particularly important when training fearful dogs and dogs with anxiety.

  • Positive methods are easy and fun for anyone to implement
  • Positive methods keep the dog being trained happy and engaged

Where things fall apart...

  • Positive based methods are un-reliable when the distraction is very high
  • Many of our clients do not want to have to carry around treats for the rest of their dogs life

Positive only training works well... until it doesn't

Our training works in the real world. At your front door. On your walks, at the park, anywhere!

Using Corrections And E-collars

But all is not lost. We can also use corrections to keep your dog accountable and make them more reliable. Corrective techniques are incredible when looking to STOP bad behaviors.

We are e-collar specialists, we can streamline the process for you and make sure that you are using the tool humanely.

We use food, toys praise wherever we can, and correction whenever we must.

E-collar training is an essential part of training hard to train dogs off leash, we routinely train beagles, huskies, even wolf hybrids off leash. It's versatile because it can be used to stop many bad behaviours, and can be used while on leash, off leash, in the house, in the yard, or at the park. 

The e-collars we use have 3 modes. Tone, Vibration, and Pulse Correction. The pulse correction feels like a Tens Unit that chiropractors and physiotherapy clinics use as a muscle stimulator. This pulse correction is adjustable from 1-100 levels which makes it a versatile tool that can be used on dogs of all sensitivity levels.
