Nowadays, anyone can call themselves a dog trainer and I’m guilty of that. I’m self-taught and I don’t work with trouble dogs.
All of the dogs I’ve trained have been smart, good natured dogs. Through positive re-enforcement, I’ve coached good dogs to transform into great dogs.
Your dog should learn several basic commands that will put them on the path to future learning.
I want to teach dogs to be happy, to be great companions. Long Island is full of dog trainers, there might be one that could help you turn your dog into a guard dog or an aggressive instrument. I can't help you.
A kinder, gentler dog trainer
But if you are looking to make your dog a great companion, I'm confident we could work together to help your dog reach its best potential.
Special note: If your dog has serious issues: excessive aggression (toward people and other dogs), biting & nipping, running away, social behavior (including dog fighting in the house), anxiety (such as separation anxiety) and other issues - I'm probably not the best choice for you and your dog (when did you ever hear someone say that?).
But if you have a good dog and you see a spark in it’s eye like you think it can learn good behavior and tricks, I’m sure I can help enrich your dog’s life.
Your puppy will also learn several basic commands that will put them on the path to future learning.
