Stephen and his beloved Husky “Growler”
As an Advanced Dog Trainer, Stephen has had the privilege of meeting a wide variety of passionate people and helping them solve their dogs needs. Having worked with both Shelter Dogs and Service/Therapy Dogs, he has gained experience from both ends of the training spectrum. Service/Therapy Dog training involves training at a higher level of skills than basic obedience. Shelter Dogs on the other hand require a Behavioral Modification approach which entails stopping bad behavior, such as aggression, resulting in the dog becoming adoptable. Stephen has now brought these skills and experience to clients that need personal Service/Therapy Dog training or are having issues with their pets. In sum, helping persons with disabilities to be a part of the World or saving a good dog from euthanasia is why Stephen loves his job and why he offers a higher level of training for your dog.
