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

We did the puppy camp. Our dog adapted to the process very well and Nathaniel was very responsive before, during and after the training. The updates the trainier sent during the process was a god sent since we were not sure how he we adapt. At the end of the training Nathaniel and the Trainer came to the house for the graduation/hand off session, it was very detailed and he is not a clock watcher. He took the time needed to make sure we had all our questions answered. Let me say It’s a lot of information to absorb . It is a process and he and the trainer did there job and now he is working with us to ensure we have the knowledge to reinforce what Prince learned during his 2 week stay. Although, we are not done, I am confident that he is setting us up for success.

Honestly I don't even know where to begin... Nathaniel is completely amazing!!! We have a 2 1/2 year old Pitbull (who is adorable by the way😊) that we couldn't even take out on our front porch, let alone a leash without him acting like a lunatic towards other animals! I'm grateful to be able to say we not only have a well behaved pup that loves his walks as much as we do now but also a pup who with a simple "good boy sit" command is able to sit and stay while another animal passes by us.. Its fascinating to see a once reactivate dog now be able to walk right past a flock of ducks without any issues and carry on with his walk without missing a beat! Let me just say we called Silver Dog Training as a last resort after trying everything we could think of first.. and my only regret is I wish we had contacted him sooner! This man is truly a miracle worker who is now referred to as "The Dog Whisperer " by our neighbors 😊

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 :)

Dog Training

We sent our 2 year old Goldendoodle Maverick, to Silver Dog Training’s 14 day bootcamp and our so happy we did. During the two weeks Maverick trained with Nathaniel and Shayna who were both great. We got updates, videos and were even able to see him via webcams provided by the boarding facility (Dogtopia). Nathaniel really took the time to understand what our needs and concerns were and addressed them all. His knowledge with animals, passion for what he does and concern for making sure we were happy is unparalleled. Maverick has already made a huge change and we are so excited to continue building on what he’s already learned with Nathaniel’s help. Knowing that we have support even after the bootcamp is over is a great feeling. Thank you so much to everyone at Silver 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!

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.
