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.

Our 1 year old German Shepard, Negan, loved to destroy our house and pull us up and down the street during our walks. We had previously done puppy training but it didn’t really stick, until Tony. I messaged Tony and he responded within minutes. We decided to do 2 weeks of board and training and we were having a hard time with the idea of not seeing our pup for so long, but Tony gave us a piece of mind with a simple phone call. On pick up day, he asked us what we wanted Negan’s outcome to be, and let me tell you, Tony succeeded. He would send videos everyday with Negan’s progress and it showed when he returned. The day Tony dropped off Negan, he spent an hour explaining how to continue his training at home and has made himself readily available if we have any questions. Negan continues to thrive. He no longer pulls on his leash, he has stopped destroying pillows, and has even learned to interact with other dogs without barking. Thank you Tony!

I did not end up doing board and train with Tony, my dog had an ear infection. He was fresh out of shelter, untrained 1.5yr old Husky/German Shepherd. It took 2 officers and a handler just to get Jasper in my truck. I was in a desperate, immediate state of HELP!!! Tony offered to pick up Jasper ASAP...during treatment and hiring a local trainer (I am a good hour away) for private session, we kept getting through another day. I then had guilt of releasing Jasper to Board and train just being out of a shelter, seeing him trying so hard...but it was getting impossible, and had company in town for my son's 21st birthday, home from College. I boarded Jasper at Pet Hotel for 5 days so we could all break, reset, and go about festivities...have a real shower! Lol...Jasper had major separation Anxiety. During his stay, I found a facility closer, and I can do one on one training every 5 days to help Jasper and I stay bonded, implement my tools. If I had a dog I was already bonded with, not right out of shelter, and a medical issue, I would have used Tony. I wanted to share that throughout all my pauses, Tony always stayed connected in responding, was very patient and understanding! He was very professional with a Docusign contract prior to beginning. My gut says he's an excellent trainer and GOOD HUMAN...THANK YOU TONY, GOD BLESS, DOG BLESS!🙏❤🐾

My dog came back with much improved basic life skills. He now walks without strangling on his leash and has not had any accidents inside the house since he came back from his 4 weeks board and train with Tony. Appreciate Tony for his dedication on training our furry friends.

This review should have been submitted a lot sooner, but we have just been in awe and quite frankly speechless with a mixture of a failed attempt to be concise to share with Tony and you all how grateful we are for his help with our precious Akita, Teddy. We can’t explain enough-but will try-how highly we recommend Tony! We were at a desperate time in our lives and were afraid we weren’t going to figure out the proper solution. We researched here and there for a professional that we also felt confident to train and love our fur baby that had aggressive tendencies. Right away Tony responded to our families plea on thumbtack app and said he’d be happy to train Teddy. Tony was always so quick to respond and put to ease any concerns we had beginning and throughout the process. Tony picked up Teddy within a month of contact and he began sending several videos of Ted’s training every. single. day….for four weeks! Along with board and care at his residence. Tony even worked with Ted on Saturday, with the exception of Sunday. By the end of the first week our jaws dropped as we watched our sometimes scary protective fur baby relaxing and obedient with a group of other dogs. This was in addition to Tony’s daughter and Tony doing various activities to condition the dogs and ease any of the dogs’ anxieties of stimulation in the room. We can go on and on about how it seemed like every day our jaws were dropping at Tony’s progress with Teddy. We are now working with Teddy on our own and continuing his learning. Teddy is a 4 year old male American Akita (possibly mixed) and still intact. Tony suggested we neuter Teddy to help even more with behavior. We are planning on doing that asap. Thank you so very much, Tony! For your trust, dedication and patience. We are so grateful to have found a compassionate and passionate person like you to help us. 🙏

Tony is the best. He has made much a difference in my and my dog's lives. I have two pugs ages 5, I was worried they were too old for training but Tony proved that was not true. They are so much more independent and well behaved. We are forever grateful to have found him.
