My dog is aggressive. Can you help?
Absolutely! Even though dog aggression is a serious issue. It is unfortunately misunderstood by too many dog trainers. You will be amazed how quickly most dogs get over their insecurities once a proper relationship and structured lifestyle is established between dog and owner.
I have been to other professionals and my dog still has issues. Can my dog be fixed?
Yes. Brett specializes in dogs who have worked, at times extensively with other trainers and behavior specialists. In most cases, these individuals see a noticeable improvement in the first lesson! Despite what results previous “experts” have shown or said about their dog in the past.
What type of dog problems do you address?
All of them! Regardless of age, breed, or temperament.
What is your philosophy?
I do not have one! I have learned how dogs, as a separate and complex species naturally communicate on their own and to teach this concept to humans. In reality, dogs have been around much longer than I have…Who am I to reinvent the wheel…right? Once we learn to understand our dog’s reality (and not the one we project onto them) a dog will instantly sense this and respond accordingly.
What makes your approach to dog behavior and training different?
I teach dog owners how to truly communicate with their pets. This is opposed to just “training” them. Which does not always tap into a dog’s natural instincts. This is needed to achieve contentment and good behavior in any dog, regardless of breed, age, or temperament. You may read more about how I teach owners to understand their dogs.
I’ve researched all over the internet and have found that dog trainers vary widely in their philosophies … why?
Because we as humans, all come from different backgrounds, cultures, and points of view. It only makes sense that dogs approach life from the same perspective. There are many trainers who use this line of thinking when approaching dogs and their behaviors. This leads them to have some sort of (usually prefaced by positive) “philosophy” or “method” they invented. This actually makes complete sense to our human thought processes.(Even I wish dogs thought exactly like we did!) This can be misleading to what our dogs truly need though, and is the primary reason why so many dog owners have to see me after working with other dog trainers. Dogs are dogs and exist in a completely different world than we do. This requires a more involved approach based on energy, instinct, and communication. Not just treats or unnecessary force.
