Sometimes, aggression towards other dogs is simply due to a lack of understanding of their Universal language; it is a result of poor socialization during the puppy stage of life and being taken too early from the mother dog, who is their Alpha and who teaches them their Universal Language and Social Skills and Universal Laws of Pack Behavior; also by not mixing the puppy with many different breeds because some breeds some of their universal languages has been removed due to man breeding many other Different species of dogs'; also humans that don't know the Universal Language of Dogs are going to have problems with interpreting what their dog is saying to them; you see when dogs are communicating their Universal Language, they are SIGN LANGUAGING with us over 96 percent of the time.
One other thing Dogs all have, and it's hardwired in their brain, is called the Universal Laws that govern your dogs' behavior; according to your dogs' Hierarchy's pecking order, over 90 percent of dog owners have big problems here. After all, they find themselves at the bottom of their dogs' Hierarchy because they don't understand how to engage with their dog according to Ranks in the Hierarchy, but this is where I come in to help you to understand all the above and give you a clear understanding of leadership with your dog and put you in control.

Get to know me

I am a Third Generation Certified Dog Trainer and have worked with Man's Best Friend since I was young. I started by owning my first dog when I was five years old, and when I was 12 years old, I worked as a kennel caretaker; my job daily was to clean the kennels making sure each dog had clean bedding and fresh, clean water each day and preparing and feeding their meals two times a day. If the dogs had trouble at any time at night, my job was to take care of them. As a young boy, I had a passion for working with dogs, and as I grew older into my teenage years, my love for working with man's best friend grew even more robust, and we as a family never had less than 20 dogs, and they were all Hunting Sports dogs. The dogs were used for Sports and Competition hunts, and my Grandfather would go on competition hunts in Maryland and Virginia to challenge other competitors. My Grandfather's dogs were trained in Competition Hunts, and his Grand Nite Championship dogs were the envy of his competitors. My Grandfather had trained championship hunting dogs and Competition swimming dogs for many years. I learned by watching and observing my Grandfather and Father handle and work with full passion toward training and preparing their dogs for success. My father loved that I had so much Passion for Dogs that he started conditioning me to become a sports Dog Trainer at 13 years old.

I then worked with a K9 Trainer who retired from the Military and served in the Vietnam War. He trained Dogs for the Military, and I had the privilege of working hands-on, starting with my dog, Dino. Dino was a Shephard mix for personal protection. We jumped into basic obedience and then moved into advanced off-leash obedience training while Dino was prepared and conditioned for K9 Protection work.

After Dino graduated from his training, I had the privilege to continue working with the Trainer in K9 Protection work as the handler and Decoy work for Bite work. I am very grateful for having the opportunity to work with him and the team. From then on, I have worked and studied with many Trainers Globally, learning their Philosophies and Methods of training and understanding Dog Psychology; so far, it's been a fantastic journey in my life and brought happiness to others who love their dogs.

As a Univeral dog trainer, my training covers Classical and Operant Conditioning,reward-based training systems, and Verbal Markers' use for communication. I also focus on building behavior through luring, spatial pressure, "leash pressure for shaping behavior, and more.......
