Member of APDT color logo

I am an AKC Approved Evaluator of the Canine Good Citizen exam. Canine Good Citizen® is one of the most rapidly growing programs in the American Kennel Club. There are many exciting applications of this wonderful, entry level that go beyond the testing and certifying of dogs. You can then, if you wish, continue training in obedience, agility, tracking, or performance events.

I am also a participating member of the

APDT, the Association of Pet Dog Trainers

Testimonials are in my graduates pages. My specialty is obedience training, and my experience is extensive. I am confident that you will not find a dog trainer that is more caring and committed. My affiliations include membership in the Academy of Canine Education, and I count as my partners veterinarians and people in dog-related professions of various natures.

I am a professional animal handler with Pet Safe Coalition Inc. Pet Safe is a non-profit educational cooperative effort of local groups and government working together to assist people and their pets during times of disasters. Local evacuation shelters will not accept pets, so you must make your own arrangements to keep your pets safe during a disaster. In the wake of the tragedy that was Katrina, Long Islanders have become aware of the need to take precautions should we be faced with fires, hurricanes, floods, tornadoes, or explosions.

On a more personal note, I am a lifelong dog owner and resident of East Setauket. I have spent my entire life in New York State. I am an active member of the dog-owning community, and former Chairperson of the Freedom Run Dog Owners Association.

Chloe (pictured on top) loves the park, people and animals alike. She brings endless joy to me, my wife and children, and all that come to know her. Such dogswith a solid obedience education are a joy to live with-they respond well to household routines, have good manners in the presence of people and other dogs, and they fully enjoy the company of the owner who took the time to provide training, intellectual stimulation, and a high quality life.
