Meet The Trainer
David was born an animal lover & has been one ever since. As a young child, he could remember being surrounded by the family’s pack of 8 dogs, German Shepherd/ Lab mixes, cats, chickens, rabbits, turtles, and birds. At a slightly older age, the family pack consisted of 6 beagle/dachshund mixes, then two Irish Setters, and even a Chihuahua that he named “Goliath”. Even with his older sisters’ pets who owned Dobermans, Pit Bulls, Akitas, etc, David always felt a connection and has been most comfortable when in the company of dogs/cats.
This exposure at a young age has been beneficial as it has allowed David to learn how to be part of a pack, train, and respect the animals. With his life enriched with animals, it was no mistake that David’s natural ability to connect with people and the animal kingdom would lead him down the eventual career path of animal services.
To add to David’s credibility as a canine consultant and trainer, David is a Certified Pet Dog Trainer (CPDT-ka), member of Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) and is an official Canine Good Citizen Evaluator and Star Puppy for AKC. He also donates training time working with local rescues, such as the Pet Rescue Center, where he helps to train rescue dogs to ensure a successful adoption. He also continues to successfully teach obedience classes and private sessions.
David understands and shares the need to find someone that you can trust with your family member. Therefore, it is with great enthusiasm and love for pets that drives David to continue his work and goal of being your preferred canine consultant and trainer.
