When I lived in Miami I worked with Dorian at his dog boarding and training facility where I trained, handled, and fed dogs multiple times a day which were owned by exclusive clients. Breeds included Cane Corso, Malinois as well as other rare and highly sought after breeds.
Before that I worked as an independent dog walker for three years, then started working with Katie Blank, a professional who specialized in training service animals and dogs with behavioral issues. Katie taught me the fundamentals of training, including how to use an e-collar without causing stress to the animal.
In 2023 I moved to New York City and became an independent dog trainer where I currently offer my services to a variety of clients.
When I work with an animal, the most important thing is to establish real communication using non-verbal cues to speak the dog's natural language, in the same way that dogs in the wild can communicate and have deep social bonds.
I offer services in leash manners, basic obedience, aggressive behavior, excessive barking problem behaviors such as jumping on people and furniture, and more. I offer education on various training devices that are often misunderstood such as e-collars, prong collars, and slip leads.
Overnight Dog Sitting
I not only make sure your dog is eating and drinking but also I pay close attention to all of its needs while making sure your home is cared for in the best way possible. Being trained by a professional elevates the experience for your dog by keeping them mentally stimulated and engaged. I provide them with the enrichment they need to promote the healthy life you want for them.
I can evaluate your dog's diet and make recommendations for a nutrition plan that provides optimal health, including physical fitness and an exercise plan that compliments their diet.
As a trainer and veteran dog walker, I provide a superior experience for your dog, giving it real one-on-one time. Their safety, enjoyment and behavior is not only assured but is sure to improve!
Both human and dog have roles to play on opposite ends of the leash. I not only teach your dog how to understand cues and signals but I give you a wider range of tools to ensure you and your dog have the best bond possible every time you leave your house.
I work closely with a licensed and certified animal transportation service based in Williamsburg for cases where your dog may need to be safely transported anywhere within or outside New York City.
