Introduction: Training Locations: Illinois Chicagoland / Florida Miami My name is Gerard and I have mastered the techniques to training dogs used by a brilliant man that has inspired me. His tv show is proven that he is a dog whisper. I understands how to teach new behaviors through luring, shaping, capturing or molding and have mastered the behavioral principles of operant conditioning. I have studied positive reinforcement dog training techniques as their primary training tool, which allows your dog to learn the desired behaviors while keeping that unique spark that makes your dog so special to you. Most of my customers require 2-3 training sessions because my methods are easy for dogs to understand and learn quickly. Most trainers will tell you that you need 1-2 weeks just to drain your pocket. I don’t do group lessons because they aren’t as effective. 10 dogs in a class is extremely distracting for your dog, especially puppy’s! Puppies can’t stay focused for more that 1 second. I don’t do this for the money, I do it for the results and the smiles I enjoy seeing on my clients face. Please take a moment to look over my reviews, all my clients have been very satisfied with my services. My private lesson is hands on training to bridge that language barrier gap between you and your close companion. My partner Peekaboo (Patterdale Terrier Mix in my photos) work as a team to rehabilitate other dogs and change their old way of thinking. From anxiety, aggression, to insecurities. I want to share with you an amazing experience of a lifetime. Give us a call or text us! If I missed your call I am in a private lesson and will return your call as soon as possible after that lesson or leave me your number and I’ll call you ASAP. Thank you for your time and looking forward to hearing from you.

I truly did not have any idea how well training would work but just after one session we saw a significant change! Not to mention we have two dogs that we were getting trained that are a little older (6 and 13) but Gerard was awesome! It’s not about the length of training or getting training for weeks on end, sometimes it’s simply just about working with a trainer who can help YOU keep control of your dogs. So I’m definitely hopeful for the future because we have a lot of methods to effectively keep control over our dogs. I’m truly thankful to Gerard! He was very polite, nice, on time, focused, respectful, and effective! Highly recommend!

I honestly don't know where to start. This trainer is so amazing if I had a baby I would name it after him. One session and so much difference in both dogs. I once lived in anxiety due to my dogs bad behaviour like the one nipping and biting people, but now there is hope. I was able to walk them together by myself without needing to go to the hospital from injuries they would cause pulling or dragging me. We still got work to do and with more sessions and practice my dogs will be the dogs Mister Rogers knows they could be. I'm still in shock and feel so happy.

This was our first experience with dog training and it exceeded our expectations. After Gerard left, we felt confident that he gave us the tools to continue training with our dogs. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs help with their pups!

Enjoyed our time with Gerard and Peekaboo. Our dog responded very well to his training methods and has retained a lot of the discipline post training. It was very easy to set up the session and Gerard was punctual and professional. He listened to our concerns and used them to build a comprehensive session. Would recommend him strongly!

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    After watching the show called the dog whisperer. I was absolutely amazed the way he would train other dogs. At first I was very skeptical. But once I used the techniques with my dog and saw the results and I was truly amazed! I just had to start my own business to educate people and dogs and create that special bond between us humans and our pets. I wanted to close that language barrier we have between our pets to understand one another what our needs and wants are to be happy together.

  • What types of customers have you worked with?

    From puppy training to extremely aggressive dog training. I’ve worked with all kinds of dogs with all sorts of problems. No dog is too much for me to handle.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    If you go to a big store like PetSmart to train your dog. They will be looking at the clock and have to stop at exactly when the lesson ends. I work for myself, and make sure I finish the training I’m in the middle of doing and go over time at no extra charge to my clients. I put my heart and sole into it and train them with love and care.
