About this pro

I have the philosophy that you are the best person to train your dog.  Therefore I train you to train your dog.  I provide all of the techniques you need to accomplish your goal of having a well behaved, loyal and well mannered dog.  

Togeather, we provide your dog a well rounded experience of fun training and socialization combined with other tools you will need to give your dog the happy protected life he or she deserves. 

As a Deputy Sheriff in California I began training dogs as a member of the K-9 unit and found that I loved it.  I have now been training dogs for 38 years and now specialize in Obedience and Service Dog Training.  I love working with all breeds and all sizes.  I really love seeing the transformation of the owner and dog team as they learn and become bonded as a team.  99 percent of my clients are amazed at what their dog is capable of accomplishing at the end of the training.

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

I teach the client how to teach their dog.  At each session I provide them with the techniques and skills needed to accomplish the goal for that session.  The client is given homework to work with their dog during the week and at the next session we riview, test, and make necessary adjustments.  This technique has proven over the years to produce a well mannered calm and happy dog as well as a very happy client.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been training dogs for the past 38 years.  I am a certified AKC STAR Puppie, CGC, CGCA, CGCU and Theropy Dog Trainer.  I am also a Certified Service Dog Trainer with IAADP, ADI, SDCD, ASDA.
