Alex Himel Certified Dog Trainer

I have the necessary background, credentials, skills, knowledge, experience, ability, competence and exposure training and providing services for dogs and/or people. On this profile page there is proof showing that. Furthermore, I feel my Dog Training experience with dogs and people would be a huge asset to any household. My involvement with dogs started in 1992 working at an Animal Hospital/Boarding facility for thirteen years as a Part-Time Veterinary Assistant. I learned to deal with dogs calmly and efficiently during exams, after treatment and in the cages. After my years at this Animal Hospital/Boarding Facility, I decided to put that experience to good use. As a result, I went to the Academy of Canine Education and learned several diverse approaches to Dog Training. During this time I logged in more than 100 hours working as a Dog Trainer's assistant where I assisted in many different ways. From observing, learning and helping, to instructing clients relating to their dog's progress and their owners in group like settings. I have a signed letter showing this in full detail. As well as other credentials. Similarly, I graduated this program in 2005 and to this day, I've been training dogs and their owners independently, thus instructing group training classes, conducting private training lessons consulting with clients and training hands-on with one or more dogs while having my own past Dog Day Care establishment. Additionally, I've accumulated more than 75 hours of experience in volunteering at a local animal shelter, consulting with another trainer about current cases and designing training plans. Furthermore, I've developed techniques to strengthen the dog and owner bond. I also have demonstration videos showing this and at the same time I often take a video of a client with his/her dog doing a routine training exercise. If they're not doing it correctly, I would not say anything but capture it and play it back. Thus, they would see what they did wrong and learn from it. In addition, they would see what they did right and remember it. At the same time I feel that the owner is the best Dog Trainer for their dog and I make that possible. I have numerous references. My main reference is Dr. Arthur Kronfeld who is a distinguished retired Cornell veterinarian. Please look at the links page for my google listing. Lastly, I am fully vaccinated.

What do you love most about your job?

Being able to train the owner to train their dog gives me pleasure, because I see the mental, emotional and physical bond taking place which I find rewarding.

What inspired you to start your own business?

My involvement with dogs started in 1992 working at an Animal Hospital/Boarding facility for thirteen years as a Part-Time Veterinary Assistant. I learned to deal with dogs calmly and efficiently during exams, after treatment and in the cages. After my years at this Animal Hospital/Boarding Facility, I decided to put that experience to good use.

Why should our clients choose you?

The owner is the best dog trainer in the world for their dog. Reason being is because of the fact that the owner is with the dog most of the time, not the trainer. It is my job to instruct the owner to bring out the full potential of the dog and that includes proper housebreaking to walking off-leash. In addition, a dog can be trained to do commands. But, that same dog could have issues. I tackle those issues in a unique method that makes me stand out.

Can you provide your services online or remotely? If so, please add details.

Yes, I have Zoom and can provide lessons in that method. I also accept payment via Zelle.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

I am fully vaccinated and I'm willing to wear a mask.

Dog Training FAQs

Expand all

Making sure your pup is trained properly really matters. Without the necessary groundwork, you’re risking your dog’s wellness and security, as well as the safety of any other dogs it comes into contact with. It’s also important your dog is trained so that it can integrate properly with you and your family. Keeping it out of trouble will save you a lot of hassle (and potentially costly repairs too).

Making sure your dog listens to commands is very important. Not only will handling it be less stressful, but it can stop dangerous conflict with other animals. Furthermore, if your dog doesn’t want to listen to you, situations such as dealing with traffic can potentially become fatal. On the upside, having a well-trained pup enables you and your pet to socialise properly with other dogs and their owners.

Having a dog that is obedient means that life around the home becomes plain sailing. With good manners, your dog will be able to tell the difference between right and wrong behaviour, while being able to foster good relationships with other members of your family. These connections can help to build a fruitful relationship with your pet as part of the family. Time well spent together will allow you to both grow together, sharing experiences and creating the type of memories that make having a pet so worth it.

How about becoming an authority figure yourself? Although your trainer will help your dog get up to scratch, they will also teach you a great deal about the fundamentals of dog training. This includes not only how to handle your own dog, but principals that you can use to understand and better interact with other dogs too. Being able to help out less-informed dog owners can be a wonderful gift to have, and something that you can take further if you enjoy it.

Having a well-trained dog also means that taking your pet to the veterinarian will be a lot easier than it would be otherwise. Considering the nature and volume of work that they have to do, being a vet is tough, let alone dealing with an uncooperative pet in their surgery. In some cases, dogs can become violent when approached by a vet – definitely something they don’t need. By having your dog properly trained, you can avoid injuries – for both your dog and your vet – as well as unnecessary embarrassment upon visits.

When hiring someone to train your dog, there is plenty to think about. The needs of both you and your pet have to be considered and so taking some time to sit down and work out what is important to you is a must. Down below are a few of the questions you might ask when it comes to finding the right dog trainer –

Should I go for group or private training? Each comes with pros and cons – those with a brand new dog can expect their pet to socialise and start to develop relationships with other dogs.

Does my dog need generalised training or would training in a specific area suit it better? One example of this is if your dog has an issue with barking, or separation anxiety. In these cases, someone that can specialise in tackling these issues would be optimal.

Do I need long-term training or do I need a quick fix? Goals such as conditioning your dog for agility or developing a routine will need more time with a trainer.

You should also take care to see what type of strategies your trainer uses. There are a wide variety of techniques that can be applied in order to change your dog’s behaviour – but not all of these involve kindness and care. It’s good to talk to prospective trainers about the ways in which they choose to teach your dog, including methods of both discipline and praise. Techniques such as positive reinforcement are very beneficial for dogs and are particularly powerful, while being enjoyable for them.

While your dog is your priority, how you communicate with your trainer is important too. Your trainer’s should be able to translate their understanding into constructive advice. A good trainer can tell you both what is working in terms of training your dog, and what isn’t. This includes passing on insights of what to do to correct certain issues, while conveying these ideas in a constructive, friendly way. In order to do this, a trainer needs to not only be able to express themselves clearly, but also be diplomatic and observant.

There are various ways in which you can choose to train your dog. Some owners opt for private lessons, while others will put their dog through group daycare.

Group sessions are valuable not only because they are more budget friendly, but also because they are better as a long-term option. This is because your pet will have time to get to grips with a wider variety of commands. However one-on-one training provides your dog with lessons that are specially tailored to their needs, helping them learn in the best way for them.

There are also the various levels of obedience training to take into account. As well as classes specifically for puppies, there are basic educational classes, adult training, agility and advanced tutoring. Which of these you go for can affect pricing, as well as how quickly your dog learns (depending on its needs and comprehension).

Yes! You might be surprised to hear that dog training can be done remotely, through online video platforms like Zoom. They can take the form of group sessions or one-to-one classes to tackle certain individual behavioural issues. Many customers prefer online dog training for all sorts of reasons, like saving on travel time and costs.
