Your Dog’s Hero

Let me tell you a little about why I use the tagline Your Dog’s Hero for all the bits and pieces you will find on this site and in my teaching…

First off, it pays homage to a dog I had early in my career. A Belgian Malinois I named Hero. Malinois’ are “my breed”, but Hero was my first. I got him as a pup and his name was the logo inspiration for using superhero colors to represent the training company I founded in 1998.

He was a beloved family pet that taught me some valuable lessons. Hero’s story is a good one if you have a few extra minutes for the read…

But secondly, and more importantly, the tagline references my goal in helping you train your dog.  

I want to teach you how to be your dog’s hero. 

Heroes are admired. They are idealized for courage and noble qualities. Becoming your dog’s hero means you can have a dog that respects and listens to you, but also regards you as the most fun and trustworthy person they know.

Training is not just about obedience or making your dog listen to you. It is a journey in building a relationship. Good training means you understanding how your dog thinks and perceives information and you communicate in a way so the dog can make sense of what you want. I can help you learn skills so that you and your dog connect more harmoniously. That just might improve the relationship in ways you never thought possible!

Both you and your dog deserve to enjoy more together. Enjoy more fun, more adventures and more companionship. 

Whether you are just starting out with a new puppy or you’ve adopted an older dog that needs a fresh start to a better life… let me help you be Your Dog’s Hero!
