Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Hey, I’m Roman with holisticdogtraining.org . I recently moved to Eugene. Here is a little about me. I graduated from Animal Behavior College, I grew up around rescue dogs and over a lifetime I learned to communicate and understand their needs and struggles. I developed a science-based Trauma-Informed, behavior healing system that changes dogs in a fraction of time. U.S. biggest non-kill shelters and national rescues adopted this system to help rescue dogs, and I’m sharing it with you so you will enjoy the dog you always wanted. Dog owners learn to addressed behaviors and reinforce the good ones with clear communication, love, empathy, and trust. My methods work quickly and effectively, pain-free, force-free without blaming the dog. You will see improvement after one session. I will help you create a create trusting, balanced relationships that foster human leadership and lasting canine success. You will see dog behavior from a body, mind, spirit perspective. You will see at the whole system and environment to understand triggers and create success that lasts. You will understand the natural needs and responses of your dog, and recognize characteristics specific to your dog’s breed, his natural skills, and tendencies. I’m so excited to show you your dog’s potential. I enjoy seeing the new bonds and strong relationships that are built through Holistic Dog Training. I also enjoy the rewarding lick I get when I'm done with the dog's rehabilitation and when they finally feel safe, know their job, and feel bonded in their balanced home. It's the look of their owners seeing an "all-new" dog, one they can truly welcome into the family. I am often called in for cases that others can't handle. I am honored to be part of the path of healing for these dogs and their owners. Everyone benefits. As a Certified Dog Trainer, Holistic Behaviorist, Reiki Master, and Crystal healing therapist, I can sense the energy shift within the family system. I wish more people would accept the fact that dogs are here to support our emotional and spiritual path and are not here to "serve" the master....

Roman is by far the best. I ha e a pet sitting business BLISSFUL buddies in NJ. I was dealing with a fearful aggressive Cane Corso who wouldn't let me into the house. He gave me step by step inatructions to gwt the dog calm. The owners were impressed and i was very happy Roman was willing to take the time to help heal this dog and give him a blissful experience so i could stay true to my Business name. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of training

Andrea it was the most challenging " phone training" I did for a long time....a personal protection dog Is challenging a care professional pet care taker at the door...that's a horror scenario. We had a fear aggressive Dog ( in training with another trainer) behind the door, a smart phone video and knowledgeable Pet care provider....I trusted your experience....you where my eyes and ears....and you did a great job not many trainers are capable of...just the thinking process to call for help before things get worse....I should leave a ***** recommendation on your website :) Thank you for trusting me your safety, to a stranger 3h away, to help you take over control of a fear aggressive 130lbs Cane Corso....

The reviews are accurate. He provides the subject matter, expertise, and patience to train me, so I can train my dog. It feels a little overwhelming at first, but as I learn, so does my dog. We are only one session in, and the results are solid.

Thank you so much for trusting the holistic online training approach, you have a complex canine behavior to deal with, and I appreciate you for trusting my attachment-based training approach. Once you could wrap your mind around why dogs show behavior, it’s easy to read them and help them reach their potential.

My wife and I are very happy with Roman's work. We plan to continue working with him to help with our dog's behavior and trauma issues. We've worked with four dog trainers over the past year. Roman is by far the best fit for us. He's the first dog trainer that my wife has been able to understand and fully trust (she immigrated from China and works as an acupuncturist). My only issue is that the fee listed on Thumbtack does not match the fee that Roman actually charges. Thumbtrack lists a fee lower than his actual fee.
Roman's Holistic dog Training's reply
Thank you so much for your honest review. My apologies for the confusion. I offer separate types of services, remote energy healing, and dog behavior/training; thumbtack has different categories. You requested dog behavior services through the remote energy healing service. That’s why the price is different. 🙏🏼🐾🐾

FAQs

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

    I do. I have a single session price, a five session package, and group prices.

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

    Before I meet the dog, I will have a short conversation on the phone to pre-evaluate the situation and urgency. In some cases I give owners the first home work even before I meet the dog via video (Skype, Facetime, or Facebook-Video chat). During our first meeting I observe the dog, his existing emotional condition, and how he or she interacts with the owner. I observe and understand the dog's perspective and point of view (intuitive). I pay attention and respect the dog's concerns and listen to his "messages" which gives me a big "trauma" and "job" picture. I use positive and fun reinforcement techniques to establish a relationship based on trust and mutual respect.

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

    I am a certified dog trainer with Animal Behavior College, CPDT, and Animal Reiki Master.
