Does your dog need training?

John’s introduction to dogs was brought about at age 6 through an uncle who bred and trained German Shorthaired Pointers.

He thought how remarkable it was that these dogs would instinctively work for their masters. He remembers family members telling stories of dogs they had owned and used for herding, hunting, protection, etc. These animals were respected not only for being companions but also for their working abilities.

John has studied and trained professionally in both the U.S. and Europe. He is fluent in English, Italian and Portuguese.

This outlook is based on personal experience and theory as well as practical training with different breeds, in different areas of work and disciplines. Find out more on John's training methods.

We firmly believe in the ability of our trained dogs. However, the perception that a trained dog will respond like a robot…is not how we like to advertise this service. The ability to influence a trained dog by commands is well founded. But trained dogs are far from being programmed machines. We advocate consideration for how the dog feels and thinks.
