Training Dogs to Match Your Lifestyle
with the

Panhandle Dog Trainer, Florida's Leading Dog Behavioral Expert

Devlin Duvenhage, the Panhandle Dog Trainer

Say goodbye to your badly behaved dog, and welcome home a beloved member of the family.

My name is Devlin, and my mission as Panhandle Dog Trainer is to train your dog to match your lifestyle and not have you change your lifestyle to match your dog. There should be no effort or hassle to include your dog in your day-to-day life. In my classes, I ensure that all dogs become well-mannered, calmly behaved, and loving members of the family.


"All dogs that are either in one of my dog training programs or boarding will live on my property and interact with my family and will stay in a climate-controlled kennel room or with me in my home."


Your dog will be socialized with other dogs, and enter into settings that you may have challenges with. It is my goal to have your dog trained and well-equipped for these circumstances. This means training your dog in social settings including stores and restaurants, parks, plazas, and around schools where children walk, run ride bikes, and make noise every day and in other people's homes and more.

A note from a happy dog owner
Retrieval Training with a spaniel

Devlin trained our Boykin Spaniel Addie from a 7-month-old puppy to a finished hunting dog.


To say we are pleased would be a huge understatement. Devlin’s keen dog sense and fair approach to training produced exactly what we were looking for. A dog that loves the field and is totally under control in all situations. Addie is as much Devlin’s as she is ours. He treated her like his own from start to finish. Devlin truly has the gift of dog sense. Most don’t. I can’t say enough positive things about our experience. I look forward to working with Devlin in the future and truly value our friendship.
