About this pro

I can't imagine anything more fun and rewarding than spending the rest of my life around dogs.  Seeing the unconditional devotion they give to their owners and the appreciation from their owners to me, for showing them the way to a better life with their companions, is beyond explanation.

What began with my learing to train my own dogs, to a hobby of helping friends and neighbors, to a full fledged career has kept me busy for the last 20 years.

Acredited Professional Dog Trainer

I enjoy seeing the bond between dog and parent grow and the knowledge that this dog will be staying put in this house.  

I am an American Kennel Club (AKC) Canine Good Citizen (CGC) trainer and evaluator.  Also certified by PetSmart for their class training.

    He has such a way with animals, it's no wonder my dog learned so easily. Really positive experience.

  • Harmeet Singh

    Very detailed, always makes sure the dog and owner get the command or aspect of training right before proceeding. Always available through phone whenever needed and easily reschedules whenever we can’t make it. Amazing trainer.
