BECAUSE DOGS ARE FAMILY
Humane, science-based, professional dog training and behavior consulting.

"I love your dog. I love your Max who growls and snaps at people. I love your Daisy who is afraid of so many things. I love your Bailey who barks and lunges at other dogs. I know your dog is struggling, and I know you are too.

Using kindness and science, I will help you with your dog's behaviors while you build a partnership rooted in trust, compassion, and support. Because dogs deserve it. Because dogs are family."

KIND WORDS

"Truly a 5-star experience."

"Oleg is a lifesaver, simply put."

"Above and beyond what I had expected."

"We couldn't be happier."

"I am beyond grateful."

MY TRAINING APPROACH

Kindness and science. Those are my training tools.

 

I am dedicated to humane, science-based training principles that focus on positive reinforcement and building trust. I do not use any techniques or equipment that rely on fear, pain, force, or intimidation. Ever.

 

Using a rewards-based approach rooted in the science of animal learning means you can effectively address behavior issues while building a supportive partnership with your dog. Your dog learns skills and trust. You learn to truly understand your dog.

Because dogs deserve it. Because dogs are family.
