Suzi was Fearful
Ralf is a terrific dog trainer and a terrific guy. He has helped me to be a more confident, competent pack leader. We started our sessions shortly after Suzi, my year-old Shih Tzu-Maltese mix, and I were attacked and injured by a large dog in our gated community. It was traumatic, and I had lost my confidence and was fearful. I knew that I needed a support system to turn things around. I lucked out, turning to Angie’s List and finding Ralf Weber.
Starting with our first session, I gravitated toward Ralf’s direction and calmness, learning so much. We started with “the walk” using a collar that Ralf recommended. That collar immediately made such a difference.
We worked together for about 2.5 months. I have purchased and read Ralf’s book and will keep it as a valuable reference.
Suzi and I practice our walk each day and much more. I am becoming a calm and assertive pack leader. Suzi understands that I am in charge now. She is far less fearful, and so am I. Thank you, Ralf!

We can help you, regardless of your dog's challenges or training goals. Being a professional dog trainer means having experience, knowledge, and skill. Further, we developed a highly effective training program to specifically help fearful dogs gain more confidence and become the best possible version of themselves. Building Confidence is our second most popular training program.
Last but not least, we are experts in dealing with all types of aggression in dogs and are often the trainers of last resort after many other programs have failed. 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. Our setup enables us to deliver online dog training services from our indoor and outdoor training areas. This allows us to help clients worldwide.
