The transformation that took place in 3 hours was just remarkable and continued after Greg left...we learned so much and had fun too...we would recommend this training to everyone who owns a dog. Bark Busters saved us!...we are more relaxed and can enjoy Sam. It has taken so much stress out of our lives...Greg was so great. He made a huge difference in our lives." Michele & Rich G - customers of Maywood Veterinary Clinic
Do you take your dog for a walk or does he walk you? Does his incessant barking and jumping lead you to apologize for his behavior? Wouldn't it be nice (and definitely be more peaceful) if your dog were well behaved?
You have come to the right place! With an initial dog training session and daily reinforcement on your part, you'll have a well-trained and well-adjusted dog in no time.

Training can be fun. Your dog likes the attention and interaction and you will feel a sense of accomplishment as you and your dog form a better relationship and make continued progress. During an initial 2-3 hour visit, I will coach you & your dog through training exercises that are easy to learn and simple to use. You won't need to spend a lot of time practicing each day. During daily interaction with your dog, the techniques I teach you will become second nature and will enable you to maintain your dog's good behavior.
Every dog is an individual with its own personality, temperament and experiences. Each lives in a unique environment...Each situation is different. There is not a one size fits all approach. I will customize a training program with comprehensive, natural, and humane training techniques for you & your dog. When you need support to reinforce your training, I will conduct follow up visits with you.
I've helped thousands of puppy & dog owners during my career, and like them, my goal for you is to improve your relationship with your 4-legged family member.
I can help you understand your dog better, improve your dog's behavior and enjoy your dog more, whether you need basic puppy education or to address complex behavior issues, including:
...and more. If your dog is doing it, I can teach you how to address it.

Within the first 10 minutes of Greg's FIRST visit, I learned techniques that enabled me to get my dogs under control. I am truly amazed at how quickly and easily they worked. I highly recommend Greg's training, I cannot believe how much better behaved my dogs are already. I look forward to learning more from him. I am so much happier, as are my dog...
By far the BEST! Greg is the absolute BEST! Anyone who needs any type of training for their dog(s), don't even waste your time looking elsewhere. Call Greg! The change we saw in our 2 puppies is unbelievable! He taught us (more me) how to take charge and lead. BUT, he did this in such a way that made you feel comfortable without feeling guilty, as...
Greg was truly patient and understanding. He went above and beyond my expectations of any trainer. He worked with both my dogs Avalon and Inigo very well. Giving them each individual attention. He educated me in a way which was clear and concise and gave me instruction that I can easily implement into the daily routine to further aid my dogs in lea...
We finally decided after 1 previous puppy class to bring in some outside help for our 2 year old rescue Brittany Spaniel, Banner. From the moment Greg arrived, it was apparent that he was not only knowledgable about dogs and dog training but was noticing things about Banner and how he responded to myself and my husband. We learned from Greg abou...
First, Greg met our dogs and developed a respect with them. Before any training techniques were explained, Greg made sure that we understood how the dogs perceive us and how why they bark at strangers. This was critical in laying the groundwork for the training. Then, Greg showed us some training techniques. We were comforted by the gentle and rela...
Greg was absolutely amazing and made this experience such a positive one for me and my family. His techniques are easy to follow and within minutes of our session, I felt like I had control of my dog and the behaviors that I called him to help me with. Highly recommend!!
Before Edward was 3 years old we were told to leave 4 training schools/programs! They couldn't handle him, he was labeled "un-trainable". Heartbroken, we continued to love Ed as much as ever, but sad he couldn't be social with people. Edward is a Bulldog/ Boxer mixed breed. We were told the following about Edward - "he may be deaf", "you'll never t...
We starting training with Greg for our Bernese Mountain Dog Darla - then a puppy - 7 years ago...in fact she appeared on National TV with Greg during a segment for FOX & Friends! Several years later we called Greg back for help when we added a Valley Bulldog, Mischa to our family. We fell in love with the breed and when we added another recently, G...
What an incredible transformation in just one visit! Upon entering our home Marcus was barking and growling at Greg which is what Marcus does for any new visitors. Greg quickly went into action calmly instructing what to do and we practiced how I needed to be the leader and take control of my space and Marcus immediately responded to the training...
Greg has been wonderful helping us train our 4 year old shih tzu who thought she had to be the protector of the family. Coco would make it to the door before us and bark uncontrollably at our guests. No one could hug me or get close to me because Coco would try to attack them. Greg taught us how to control Coco's need to protect and realize that...Penny P | RiverVale, New Jersey
