I am a Master Trainer and Behavioral Therapist. As 2016’s Behavioral Therapist and Trainer of the year, my experience working with thousands of dogs will help me make you the “the leader of your pack” using dog-friendly, non-food based techniques (no shock collars or harsh methods ever!). My goal is for your dog to love and respect you, not fear you. I can help you with ANY BREED AT ANY AGE WITH ANY ISSUE. I can help you with your new puppy, an adult dog that you’ve had for years, or getting a newly adopted dog of any age to settle nicely into your home. You’ll be amazed at what your dog will be able to do once you learn to communicate to it in a way they finally understand. Please take a moment to read some of my client reviews <http://www.barkbusters.com/dog-training-reviews/michael-konstantaras/1>.These are all real clients with true stories.
Personalized Programs: I come to you! Your home, yard, and neighborhood are where most dog’s issues occur. This is why it’s best to start in these locations. When needed, we can move on to more populated environments such as walking your dog calmly through town on a busy weekend afternoon! I will effectively address any issue you may have including: aggression, housebreaking, jumping on visitors, separation anxiety, nuisance barking, getting into the garbage can, demanding attention or bothering family members and guests, fighting between dogs in the same home, separation anxiety, walking on leash, and much more. Expensive “boot camps” or sleep away training are not effective in my opinion because your dog needs to respect and listen to YOU in YOUR HOME, not a trainer at some facility. Besides, wouldn’t you rather be a part of shaping your dog’s behavior to the way you want it to be? I develop a personalized one-on-one program for you based on your dog’s particular personality, perspective and your goals.
Positive Dog Training: No shock collars, choke collars, pinning, intimidation or clickers. Unlike some trainers, I never use harsh techniques or bribe with food to extort good behavior.
Fast Results: By the end of our first session, you will have a completely different dog. The transformation in this fist meeting will be incredible. Click here to read about some of my clients experiences with me (put a link to my reviews here in bold colored type).
Speak Dog – Rather than teach your dog English, I will teach you to communicate using the language your dog already understands. You will learn how to use your body language and voice tones to get your dog to focus on you and respond to your directions. It’s really amazing for both you and your dog when you can finally understand what each other wants!
New Adoption: Adoption is at an all time high which is great! I have helped countless families welcome their newly adopted puppy or adult dog to their home. Not all dogs (unfortunately) have had the best experiences before you adopt them. I will help your new furry family member adjust to your home and establish that calm, balanced environment that you both desire.
