Introduction: I am a professional dog trainer and behavior specialist. I love dogs and love to help people. I always try my best to help people to train their dogs and modify their bad behaviors. My goal is to train dogs to respect their owners. The basic commands of sit, stay, come, heel, and down are taught as well as impulse control and general manners around people and other dogs. It's very satisfying to watch dogs respect their owner and family members. My training is simple, and focuses on what your dog needs to bring out their best. I train dogs both on and off the leash using a balanced method. I offer boarding training programs in the greater Los Angeles area. I will share training videos with you daily when your dog stays with me, and you will see your dog's behavior improve daily. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. For more details on my background and service, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to meeting you and help you with your furry companion.

Dog Training

We adopted a 1 year old puppy in March. Lexi was sweet as can be during our meet and greet. About a week after being with us she started to show aggressive tendencies towards us a little but big time with family and friends who entered our home. We weren’t able to get really close with her because she would show us her teeth. And forget about a bath! We weren’t able to bath her for months. We had several behavioral trainers come to meet her and one even told us our sweet 30 LB. Dog was a dangerous dog and we should give her back. Then we met Tony. Within seconds he took control of the situation and Lexi was being submissive rather than aggressive. Tony told us that Lexi is not aggressive, she’s scared. He assured us that he would be able to work with her to desensitize her and make her less nervous. It’s been a month since Lexi’s been home from her 4 week board and train with Tony. She is definitely a different dog. The fact that we can get close to her and cuddle with her and bathe her is amazing. Thank you Tony!

Dog Training

Tony was an awesome trainer! We had just moved into a condo and our 8 month old lab pit mix was super hyper and barking at everything. We had to find a a place ASAP so our little Arlo wouldn’t destroy the house and annoy the neighbors. And walks were a nightmare! He would lunge in every direction and it was a workout just to take him out. I found Tony and he took Arlo within 3 days. Everywhere else was super expensive and couldn’t take Arlo in for a few weeks at least. We didn’t have that much time. After the 4 week program Arlo came back a changed dog! He became crate trained and is able to be in the crate for most of the day with no issues. Barking improved a lot and walks are such a pleasure now! I look forward to taking Arlo out on walks. We were sent daily videos and the improvement were visible in the videos. Even now months after we contact him with any issues and he helps as much as he can! Def recommend! Thank you Tony!

Tony is an amazing dog trainer. My puppy was so destructive and hard to train. I took him to a boarding place for six weeks and spent thousands of dollars but it didn’t do any good. I finally found Tony and I am so pleased with the results. My dog is super hyper and had potty training issues as well as obedience. After the four weeks with Tony, he became a different dog. He is so much easier to handle now and potty training isn’t an issue any longer. Thank you so much Tony! I really appreciate your amazing work! I highly recommend him to anyone who is having issues training their dogs.

Dog Training

I have been searching for over a month to send my rescue dog to a professional trainer but had no luck finding one available ASAP. I contacted Tony and he responded right away and took my dog the next day. She was attacked on the streets before coming to the rescue so she has trauma and confidence issues. She was very reactive on a leash and I didn’t know how to handle those situations. Tony helped her socialize with other dogs and gain confidence. She is doing a lot better and knows basic commands. She still has some things to work on and Tony has been helpful even after the program. He genuinely cares for the dogs and is available if you have any questions/concerns.

Tony was very easy to work with. He explained all the details about his methods and procedures. He taught my dog the basic core disciplines that was needed for me to reinforce my dogs continued training. It was worth every dollar! The bark collar is working great! I recommend Tony’s services for all dogs in need of behavioral therapy.
