Bucks Dog Training
Hello, I'm Edward; I believe that training is a fantastic way to develop a life long bond between you and your dog. I studied at the C.A.T.C.H Academy for dog training. CATCH is a New Jersey licensed 10 phase course in dog behavior and training that includes hands-on instruction, behavior fieldwork, and a mentor trainer program. I can help you with basic obedience training, including leash pulling, house training, nipping, biting, and unwanted behaviors.
I use a balanced method of training; If you have any questions about my training method or any other dog behaviors you would like to address, please feel free con contact me.
If you do not have the time to train your dog, my board and train program is the ideal training program for you. With my proven track record, I will return your dog to you, knowing all of the basic commands and ready to be a great companion.
Is your dog experiencing unwanted behaviors like being destructive, extreme leash pulling, and aggression? I will find the underlying issues and develop a training plan that works for you and your dog. I can solve any behavior problem and teach your dog how to be a great member of the family.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I am currently working with Bo, our latest board, and train pup. Bo is a one and half year old Golden Retriever puppy that had severe sever leash pulling issues and was reactive with other dogs, bikes and sometimes walkers while on a leash. We took Bo back to the basics of Obedience training to instill a solid sit, down and stay. From there, we slowly worked with Bo to learn proper leash walking skills and slowly introduced him to distractions on the leash. BO is doing great on walks and is less reactive to distractions. One of my most recent projects was with a one-year-old terrier named Roxie. Roxie had no formal training and as a one-year-old had many bad behaviors. I worked with Roxy as part of my board and train program. Over a week, we taught Roxy all the basic obedience commands, sit, down, down from a stand, stay, and leave it. We also taught Roxy proper leash walking skills. In a week, Roxy developed the good behaviors needed to be a great family dog. I am also working with a 16 month Rottweiler named Dutches that had severe leash pulling issues. I have had several session with Dutches, and her leash pulling has come a long way. We are also working on basic obedience training with her.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?
Do your research. I believe that training creates a strong bond between you and your best friend. It is important that any trainer you hire communicates clearly and is receptive to the needs of you and your dog. Ask lots of questions and make sure you and your dog are comfortable with the trainer.
What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?
Please ask the following questions before hiring a dog trainer: 1 What type of training method do you use? 2 Do you believe in a positive reinforcement training method? 3 How long are the sessions? 4 how long will the training process take?
