About the Trainer

Dave has worked with dogs for over 33 years – and as an ordained minister of the Gospel of Christ – has also spent many of those years working with people & their problems. He has been fortunate to have been able to counsel, mentor, teach and train – helping humans learn to reconcile their broken relationships and overcome destructive issues of anger, aggression, bitterness, denial, fear, flight, greed, phobias, pride, stubbornness, unforgiving hearts, and ungratefulness – as well as a vast array of other issues and defense mechanisms that hinder and destroy human to human relationships.

Often these same attitudes, behaviors, and personal patterns of relating spill over into our interactions with our dogs – we may excessively coddle, ignore, intimidate, stress, exasperate or use excessive force – keeping the desired results out of reach. To achieve significantly improved results with our "4 Legged Buddies", we must adopt more desirable ways of correcting, relating, teaching and training.

While there are those who have the gift of being a "Dog Whisperer", most people have difficulty detecting or perceiving the subtle nuances or minute changes that may initiate an intense emotional or undesirable response from a dog. A trained dog is one that can overcome these "excessive" instinctual reactions - on command. I will provide you a framework that will help you better understand and meet your dogs needs and provide tools to curb and change unwanted behaviors.

It is my hope that my experience, insights and wisdom in working with dogs will help bring balance, boundaries, discipline and demonstrate loving leadership that you can incorporate in your relationship with your “4 Legged Buddy”; and who knows – perhaps be helpful in your human to human relationships as well.
