Buddy was Fear Aggressive
Ralf is amazing!!! I can’t say enough great things about him. What I can say is that whatever is wrong with your dog, he can fix it!
My dog “Buddy” is a Golden Retriever that I adopted from a shelter approximately three years ago. Buddy came with so many “issues” that my Vet put him on Prozac. I spent many agonizing hours and a lot of money trying to help my Buddy. From the “Thunder Shirt” to every kind of obedience training there is – nothing worked UNTIL I FOUND RALF!
Within 30 minutes of the first visit, my Buddy was a changed dog. Ralf immediately identified his problems and knew precisely how to correct them.
Buddy and I still have some more learning to do; he is currently decreasing the Prozac. But up until now, it’s been great, and I know with Ralf’s guidance – Buddy will become a happy and well-behaved companion.
UPDATE: Buddy is now completely off Prozac, and his fear and aggression are almost completely gone 🙂

We can help you, regardless of your dog's challenges or training goals. Being a professional dog trainer means having experience, knowledge, and skill.

Building Confidence is our second most popular training program.

Most of our aggressive dog clients previously spent significant money on half-baked solutions without much improvement. This is different from us. We will give you an honest assessment of what goals are realistic for your dog. We will tell you what can be resolved reliably and what likely needs to be managed before we start.
Our flagship product is our board and train program. But our virtual dog training and coaching services have become quite popular over the last couple of years.
