About this pro

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 just AMAZING!! My dogs were right at home when they trained at Dogsports4u Academy. Olga is super knowledgable and caring , loving, and compassionate. She is always giving you updates , videos, and photos . Most importantly, she trains the dog with love from her heart and in fun ways. When you get your dog back and they listen it is the best feeling. But the key is they are HAPPY about it and are excited to go back when we go away, because of all the kindness and right amount of firmness Olga has mastered. We looked at a lot of trainers but Olga is one of a kind and highly recommend her over any other trainer

    I trust Olga to train my dog without reservation! Each lesson including a board and train camp was tailored specifically to the needs of my dog. He responds nicely to her and seem to really enjoy his follow-up lessons. I highly recommend the board and train. Your dog will come home with new manners! And, you know they will be safe and well cared for. We are lucky to have a world class master right in our neighborhood!

    I took my Two Dachshund puppies for obedience to Olga at This state of the art facility, “Dog Sports 4 You Academy” She worked on all basic commands… sit, stay, heel etc. I couldn’t believe what they accomplished in a short period of time! I’m so happy with my new puppies! A huge thank you Olga for your time & patience! Highly recommend this training facility!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

First, we will chat on the phone or via email about your dog, your home set-up, and what goals you are looking to accomplish. Then we schedule a meeting for a free evaluation and a training plan of what is the best solution for you and your dog. (This depends on your dog's age, temperament, behavioral issues, your goals and skills as well as the amount of time and involvement you are willing to invest into training). During this meeting, you have an option(your choice:) to also do a lesson at a discounted price of $100. Sometimes, a lesson and a follow-up is all you need to take the matter into your own hands and make the issue disappear. You can choose to proceed with more lessons, or sign your pup for one of our boarding training camps. (In this case the $100 goes towards the camp tuition). If we proceed with the training lesson plan, then we will meet usually once or twice weekly, work, you will get homework to practice at home, then come back for the next lesson, we check on your and your pup's progress and work on the next step. If we decide on one of our training camps (can be boarding or daytime), your dog will be learning clear rules, communication, play, exercise, and training with me daily. I stay in touch by sending pictures and short update videos (which also help us as mini lessons for you during the process:) Once the dog is trained, then I will show you what we learned and teach you how to apply it. I provide lifetime support for my students and always welcome them here for boarding tune-ups.

I have attended lots of workshops and trained with most succesful top world dog trainers and champions in USA and Europe


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Whether you need help raising your puppy, or teaching your dog manners, or solving your dog's behavioral issues, the successful outcome is an investment into your dog's well being and your relationship for many years to come.  Your dog is worth it and so is your peace of mind! With dog training, just like most everything, you can try to save money, do the research and try to DIY, or you can get professional guidance, invest some time and learn how to DIY then train your dog,  or you can hire an experienced professional to get it done. We are not the cheapest, nor are we the most expensive in the area.  You get great value because you will pay for and get the results you are looking for. Our prices just like our training programs are not cookie cutter, and neither is your dog! Our one-on-one lessons start at $180 for obedience and fitness, and our training camps start at $2200 for quick fixes or tune ups and go up to $4800 with a puppy program of $3200 and an obedience with minor behavioral corrections of $3800.  Advanced obedience off leash or aggression is $4800


How did you get started in this business?

Since I am 5, I am obsessed with dogs and dog training, so I haven't really started, I sort of always was😊. 

I am fortunate to be able to make my passion my career.


What types of customers have you worked with?

Over the years I have literally worked with dogs of all ages, starting with baby puppies, adolescents, adult dogs, and older dogs.  Rescue dogs and pure bred show dogs.  I compete in IGP which is tracking, obedience and protection, and I have doubled in AKC conformation, obedience, agility and dock diving.  I have helped lots of couples, singles and families with kids of all ages.
