We will turn your misbehaving dog into a well mannered companion.We will help your rescue adjust into a well rounded family member.
You have the advantage of working with a trainer who competes with her own dog. Olga knows about aggression, natural drives and impulse control. The difference between a competitor and just a pet trainer of dogs is the connection and depth of a relationship between the trainer and the dog without food, toys or leashes... Often your dog's distractive behavior, leash reactivity or aggression are the product of misunderstanding and lack of impulse control and inability to constructively channel.
Working dogs have strong instincts, tons of energy and are high strong. It takes skill and knowledge and a balanced approach to work with them and to channel them for amazing results. Most local trainers are only using the reward based training, which is only one of the many aspects of balanced training tools Olga has in her arsenal for each dog.
Olga Baram has been fascinated by dog training since she is 5!!! This makes it decades of learning and studying and always challenging herself to get even better. She owned and trained a poodle mix, a Rough Collie, 3 Belgian Sheepdogs and is now competing with her young Belgian Malinois.
Olga's passion about dogs made her sponge and soak anything and everything she could come across. Including AKC Conformation, Competitive Obedience and Agility.
She has been involved in IGP (Schutzhund) since 1995. It is a highly demanding complex and competitive working dog sport involving 3 disciplines at once - Tracking, Obedience and Protection. All being judged on the relationship of the handler and the dog team. It requires precise performance on the dog's part in high state of arousal while being in total control of the handler. This sport brings out the best in the dogs and challenges the handlers to always evolve as trainers. It is addictive and fun!!!
Olga never stops learning and bettering her skills. She is currently preparing to compete at the National competition this to hopefully qualify to represent USA next year at the World Championship with her young Belgian Malinois Bravo.
She has been attending lots of seminars and trains with top trainers in the USA and Europe. She is one of the very few local trainers who compete in protection sports on a high level.
Olga is the only CCAS (Certified Canine Athlete Specialist) on Long Island at this time. She is an expert in Canine Fitness. She successfully combines the physical and mental wellness from fitness with her training programs. This helps take training to another level enhancing confidence, helping the dogs learn how to relax and overcome fears while engaging their bodies and minds and learning to avoid injuries when running and playing.
I love helping dedicated dog owners turn their dogs into great companions and let them be full time family members. By being able to trust your dog and to include him/her into most everyday activities and travel, Everyone benefits, the dogs and the humans. My students (both fourlegged and humans) are often in touch for years sending updates and nothing is more rewarding to me than watching the transformation and them living their best life!
I am passionate about dogs and dog training and this is not a profession, it is my way of life and I love it!
Olga is knowledgeable and passionate about dog training. She has a special way to connect with dogs and people. Her lessons are always fun and provide outstanding results. Sending my dog to one of her training camps was the best decision I have ever made. He is now well behaved and better member of our family. I wish I have found her sooner, before spending money on other trainers.
Professional dog trainer, very kindness and fair person. My dogs love her and it’s a pleasure to have deal with her. Highly recommended!
We are thrilled! This was the best investment for our family... Sammy has been to an all positive trainer in the past and the only way he would pay attention to us was if we had a cookie and only if he felt like it. And, to make things worse, his energy outbursts became more frequent and he even started grabbing our hands with his teeth when excited. I have looked and researched many trainers this time and I am so glad met Olga. After a 3 week VIP In-House training, Sammy came home a different dog! Not only we now have an obedient and well behaved dog, Sammy now wants to play and do things together. He loves Olga and his fitness classes, and we are now learning more and more ways to interact and play together.
As they say about Golden Retrievers, they are forever puppies who never grow up. Our Jena had an abundance of energy and was always ready for an “adventure”. That could mean anything from jumping on the dining room table to stealing a chocolate bar or taking a bite out of a door molding. Something had to be done. When we found Olga, we knew we came to the right place. Not only did Jena bond with Olga instantaneously, she benefited tremendously from Olga’s consistent and steady approach. In addition, socializing with other dogs at Olga’s taught Jena she was not the center of the universe and rules must be obeyed. After a series of several week long stays with Olga, we could not be happier with the results. She was still our happy loving Jena, only more mature and well behaved.
