    Canine Behaviorist, New Jersey's Dog Whisperer, Master of Natural Canine Behavior

    (82 reviews)

    As a behaviorist, I work with numerous dogs with behavioral issues ranging from urinating in the house all the way up to full-blown aggression. I have testified in many court cases as an expert witness and have travelled the country rehabilitating dogs and teaching their owners how to change what they were doing in order to change the dogs' behavior. I teach others my techniques so that they can help other people to save more dogs. I train service dog sfor special needs children and for veterans FREE of charge. I was even a guest lecturer in an animal behavior class at a Japanese university in Tokyo! It is remarkably simple to have the dog you dreamed of. Unfortunately, most people give up and either change their lives around their dogs' behavior or even give the dog away! How does it fix the dog to give it away or dump it into a shelter? It doesn't, but that's why there are more than 4 MILLION dogs euthanized each year in shelters around the country...because all the "trainers" couldn't help those dogs so people gave up on the dogs, and on themselves, often feeling guilty for years...all because they didn't know how to help their dogs. I will teach you how to get your life back and have your dog fit into YOUR life instead of your changing YOUR life and trying to live YOUR life around your dog's behavior. I can help you! I must admit that the best part of my job is about 15 minutes after arriving into a chaotic house, jumping and barking dogs, out of control household, and hopelessness. At that time, everyone says, "I can't believe it...my dog NEVER lies down this quickly" or "did you give my dog a pill?" or the best one, "Can you give me a lifesize cardboard cutout of you so my dog thinks you are still here?" If someone takes your dog and trains it but returns the dog to you without changing YOU and what the humans are doing, then the dog will revert back to his old behaviors, right? Of course! That's why I teach the HUMANS what to do, since the dog already gets it! That's what I love most...that and all the friends I have garnered through the years, most of whom began as clients!

    Canine Coach

    (41 reviews)

    My work stands out from others because it is personalized to each client's very specific needs. I work closely with each client, listening to their particular needs and I then apply a customized strategy to help the owner and their dog(s) achieve a healthy relationship and attain seemless communication. Each client's situation is different, but providing specific tools and solutions for both owner and dog is always my goal. I enjoy most when I am able to help people shift their attitude and way of thinking about how they relate to and communicate with their dogs. By making small behavioral changes and taking the everyday environmental context into consideration, as well as providing basic understanding of dog language, the human/dog relationship improves greatly. Mutual understanding is achieved, and both the owner's and the dog's needs are met, creating a more harmonious relationship. Teaching this is what I enjoy most.

    Empire State K-9 Training, LLC

    (20 reviews)

    My work is a blend between professional dog training, applied animal behavior and a K-9 Aggression Specialist. I offer a one-stop shop. We board and or house-sit only for our customer base to keep everyone's efforts to establish a well mannered pet at home. I train ANY BREED at ANY AGE, results guaranteed. I was voted #1 Dog Trainer in northern California by Diablo Magazine in Contra Costa County. Please read reviews and view the videos. We love dogs and we love people - and we love being the mediators between humans and their pets. I love taking on a dog with a long list of problems, even severe problems, from owners who have lost hope of keeping their dog at all, and then presenting to the owners, in some cases in minutes, a new dog who listens and obeys even in public places where we do our work. We love helping families who are in tears, in stress, ready to give their dog up because other training did not work. We confidently promise to fix things, quickly and successfully, and finally restore peace and harmony in that home. We are a last stop shop! No more spending time and money on any other training that doesn't deliver the much needed and desired results. It is so rewarding to mend the pet parent/pet child relationship and see people believe again that they can have a well behaved pet at home, work and travel, regardless of distractions encountered.

  • The Dog Tamer

    (13 reviews)

    I have been asked what sets me apart form other Dog Trainers. I believe I get results where others fail. It is very important to my clients that they get their Dog(s) to behave well and become a balanced, loving part of their family. I show my clients how to get a balacned dog through one on one training. All behavioral problems will be addressed and corrected. So many of my clients have taken their Dog(s) to other training centers, or have hired other private trainers and were extremely frustrated because their pets still were exhibiting the behavioral problems that they wanted corrected. The Dog Tamer gets results period. I have been called "a miracle worker" by most of my clients and they are now enjoying calmer, more balanced pets through my training. No Dog is too much for me, BIG or small. To me, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing a transfomation in a dogs behavior to a balanced state. It is so enjoying to witness a dog go from a frustrated state of mind and body to a calm canine. To equally view an owners gratification to finally see their beloved pet transform into the pet that they always desired-calm and well balanced. I truly am a dog lover and am 100% devoted to a dogs well being.

The Dog Tamer

(13 reviews)

My training is for all stages of [a] dog's life from puppy to adult to senior. Most of my clients are everyday people with families and just are looking to have a better relationship with their dog or dogs. I specialize in behavior modification.

You and your dog can benefit from the assertive energy that Tom can provide on his trainings. Tom of The Dog Tamer has been training and taming all types of dogs, big or small, for over 10 years. He has been called "miracle worker" by clients, as he does all types of behavioral modification from excessive barking, jumping, nipping to any destructive behavior.

...it gives me the greatest pleasure to hear their positive feedback, and of course, see the transformation of their relationships between their dogs in the direction they are looking for, as they learn how to properly communicate with them.

Tom's most favorite and successful project was working with Reggie, his neighbor's beagle mix dog, which had several behavioral issues. The dog responded quickly to Tom and after a few lessons, transformed into a well-behaved and calm companion.

Tame your dog and get results right away. Let Tom help you with that.
