My history with dog training began over a decade ago with my pet "Sluggo", a Siberian Husky from the local Animal Protective League. A purely impulse purchase, I knew nothing about the breed or its needs. I bought him because of his beautiful appearance. Needless to say, the next several years were spent in disappointment and frustration due to the obvious needs of a Siberian Husky that were not being met. I did EVERYTHING wrong in my approach to "Sluggo", and I paid the price: chewed furniture, soiled carpets, "dog at large" fines from the dog warden to name just a few. "Sluggo" taught me many things about dog pack behavior, temperament, and most important, about my true lack of understanding of dog behavior. Thanks to "Sluggo", I began a quest of learning about dog psychology and, to date, I am still learning. Unfortunately, "Sluggo" passed away before I could share my knowledge, but I have dedicated my study and this site to him in hopes of helping others.
In addition to being a graduate of National K9 in Columbus Ohio, I had the good fortune of training under several mentors, who opened up the world of dog behavior to me. I have spent many years learning and training through research, training conferences and studying under respected trainers. I have done the work and research, and now your pack will reap the rewards!

That training also was offered through Paramount.
