Introduction: Hello I am Nathaniel Silver, **update**: I am happy to announce that my bootcamp has changed locations to Dogtopia of Fort Lauderdale. I have spent my entire life working side by side with all kinds of animal. And with dogs for just under 20 years. I am certified in canine behavior modification and endorsed by AKC registered and recognized Kate Smith. I have attended animal behavior college which I re enroll every few years to update new knowledge and techniques, as it is an ever growing science. I have a deep understanding of the of canines and the domesticated dog. I can teach you how to establish leadership with your dog and build an unbreakable bond with them very quickly. I will teach you how to communicate with your dog the way a dog understands. There is a language barrier and I become the Rosetta stone between you and your new family member bridging the gap between the two worlds. I teach you the proper way of teaching your dogs what the rules, boundaries and limitations are in the home and how to recreate pack hierarchy in your home by using respect and the power of praise by using the least instrusive minimally adversive way of learning. My job is to prevent owner surrenders and save dogs lives by improving their behavior in the home and bringing families together with confidence.

Dog Training

Nathan is a great trainer, not only does he show you what to do, he explains in detail why to do it and why it works. I didn’t expect much from one training session, but with the technique Nathan showed us he stopped pulling immediately. I was blown away with how responsive our dog was to the training. I highly recommend, we will be continuing our training with him and you should not hesitate to book a session.

Before training with Nathaniel our dog Lela would only listen sometimes. Now after only 2 sessions with Nathaniel we have seen so much progress. From her impulse control,to her leash walking skills there has been major improvements. We are happy we found him and look forward to working with him future.

Dog Training

Nathaniel is an amazing balanced dog trainer! Although he seems to specialize a lot in training aggressive or reactive dogs, he was happy to teach us about how to do basic training for our new 6-month puppy, Sterling. You can tell he really loves dogs and he puts a lot of care and effort into the training. He is also very nice, always on time, and explains everything clearly. His training sessions are very affordable and customizable. You can ask him to focus on training specific commands, and you can choose how many sessions you want to do. He was able to run us through the basic training program in just three sessions, and you can tell he tries to pack as much information and practice into each session as possible to make the most of it. Even if you do just one session, you will learn a lot. Instead of just training your dog for you, he teaches you and gives you the resources needed for training your dog yourself. In a session, he gives you plenty of information on why he does certain techniques, shows you how to do the training exercises, and then he has you do the training exercises a couple times to make sure you're doing it correctly. Then he gives you some homework to do during the time before your next session. After the sessions, you will understand how to train your dog longterm so you won't have to rely on any other trainers. Since we've had Nathaniel teaching us, we have learned a ton of information and now feel much better-equipped to train our dog throughout his lifetime. Sterling has made a lot of progress so far and is turning out to be a fantastic dog. We are extremely happy with this training and can't wait to use what we learned in the future!

Dog Training

Nathanal is amazing! He worked on my dog Bo (45 pounds) and bo was super aggressive (would show teeth, bite, and bark at other dogs). After one week of training Bo is exceptionally well behaved and better than ever, all thanks to Nathanal!

Dog Training

When I contacted Nathaniel about dog training I was absolutely desperate for a solution. I couldn’t choose between my dogs and girlfriend so we needed to find a solution. With Nathaniel, we learned so many things about dogs and ourselves. He was extremely informative about dog behaviors and human responses. Our home has been much better and we look forward to continue practicing and the training that Nathaniel has taught us! Thank you so much for all you have done for us and our fur family!! - James and Victoria :)

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    *Pricing* is done three different ways. 1) Puppy and potty training. In home. 2) Behavioral modification. In home. 3) Puppy training(for an early start and high level of socialization) or behavioral modification(usually for unruly adolescent or aggressive dogs). board and train program. Followed by in home classes also. We will find the best pricing for you when discussing what kind of training your dog needs. My results are fast and very long lasting and meant for lifetime behavior. I encourage owners contact my previous clients on my review boards both here or on Facebook to inquire about their experiences and satisfaction level. This truly is my passion. I am an animal lover first and foremost . If I am not with them I'm reading about them or watching documentaries most of the time. My husky shepherd of 16 years just passed away this march 13th 2020 and devastated me. This motivated me to come to Florida where I could be close to the everglades and help families become closer and with their new family member and teach their dog independent control.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The first thing I do is sit with the family and do a brief interview of what the families daily routine and activities are. This allows me to diagnose the root of core issues and where to start antecedent arrangement.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have attended animal behavior college which I am re enrolled in again to update my knowledge. Things change since 2008 and I always like to learn more in general. I attended Hudson Valley college in Troy New York in the environmental science degree program. I originally wanted to work in the everglades in my early 20's. I have now worked with canines for almost 20 years.
