Highly recommended. Todd taught us positive, reward-based techniques to train our new pup...and they worked! We enjoyed working with Todd, and more importantly, so did Oliver.Aug 24, 2017Verified
About this pro
I provide basic obedience training and problem solving of common and not so common canine behavioral issues such as jumping, door dashing, potty accidents, nipping, or destructive chewing. Leash pulling is one of the more common issues I help clients with. My system attacks the problem in phases controlling the environment in which you and your dog are walking. I also specialize is rehabilitating aggressive or reactive leash behavior. Many dogs tend to lunge, bark and bear their teeth at skateboards, bikes, children or other dogs. Rather than believing the myth your dog is bad or mean, it is more likely that your dog is fearful and barking and lunging is a way of making these fearful things go away. As a dog trainer, I can be your coach in helping you train or rehabilitate your dog through force-free positive reinforcement training which has been widely accepted as the most effective scientifically proven method. Todd Campbell, South Orlando Dog Training Gentle Guidance For You And Your Dog I thrive on helping my clients and their dogs develop a deeper bond and better communication through positive reward based training without the use of force. Not only do I enjoy working with dogs but I love working with people. This is an asset because essentially I am teaching you, the client, to train your own dog. What I love about the dog training industry is that it is constantly changing and I feel it is important that I stay current through continuing education. You ultimately benefit from my enthusiasm and dedication to the field.

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Generally, you should expect to have multiple lessons from me. Training should be methodical and in order to encourage my clients to reach a certain milestone in training, I offer multiple session discounts when they pay for at least 3 sessions up front. That way it discourages the client from quitting training too early. Both the client and the dog get cheated when training hasn't been perfected over the course of several weeks.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?1.Initial consultation and interview to get to know the dog, get to know you and find out what’s causing the problem or what you want out of training. 2.Schedule weekly lessons teaching you to train your dog or give you tools that will help to rehabilitate your dog. 3. Build confidence in your dog so that you can enjoy your canine to the fullest.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Todd is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer Knowledge Assessed (CPDT-KA) through the independent certifying organization called the Certification Council For Professional Dog Trainers or CCPDT. It is the leading certifying organization not tied to any school or large corporation. Trainers who have passed this rigorous certification exam have demonstrated a mastery of humane and science based training methods. When you choose a CPDT-KA trainer, you can be assured that this person has received at least 300 hours of training experience and is also required to stay current with the latest in training research and trends through mandatory continuing education units. Todd is one of over 2000 certified trainers worldwide that maintains this mark of distinction. He is also a graduate of Animal Behavior College(ABC). ABC is approved by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education and is an internationally recognized school. The education consists of a ten-stage research based learning program covering animal behavior and training principals that concludes with an internship under an experienced, trained mentor. Outside of helping clients, Todd is a dedicated volunteer logging hundreds of hours socializing and training dogs at the Pet Alliance of Orlando, Houndhaven of Minneola, FL and Orange County Animal Services. He was also recently honored with the 2015 Orange County Citizen of the Year Award for his countless hours of volunteer work in his own community.
