I trained my first dog at the age of 16 using "The Koehler Method of Dog Training". For those of you under the age of 40, W. Koehler trained most of the animals in Walt Disney's movies of the '50s and '60s. It became out of favor by some because of its use of "negative reinforcement". I also studied Cesar Millan, Dr. Ian Dunbar, and Doggy Dan among many others. The latest program I completed was Doggy Dan's. His premise is quite simple-To help a dog you have to think like a dog. You can't use bird psychology, cat psychology, or human psychology. Your dog is 99.8% the DNA of a wolf. As a former Zookeeper, with a degree in biology, and having written a research paper on wolves I was somewhat surprised that this notion has been lacking in most dog training programs.
To truly understand your dog you need to understand wolf social structure, hierarchy, and communication. This will allow your dog to understand you. The concept's taught are very simple. There are basically 5 rules to follow in order to become the leader of your dog. He/she will follow your commands because he/she will want to, not because you force them to, or offer them treats. Call for a consultation and I will explain in much greater detail.

I have a 1 year old German Shepard that was aggressive towards other dogs. Don came out and said he was fear aggressive and needed structure. He also taught me how to be the leader in my dogs eyes. I can now walk him without him pulling after other dogs. I highly recommend his training.

Don helped me train my puppy. He is now very well behaved. He also helped me with crate and potty training. He also lets me call him whenever I have questions. Highly recommended.

Very professional. Unique techniques to dog training. Helped my shy rescue dog overcome his fear of other humans and dogs. He is now a very happy and secure dog.
