Steve began his dog-training career in 1978 when he was living in the San Francisco Bay Area of California. With over 30 years of professional dog-training experience, he has trained thousands of dogs. Although he had learned much from books and other dog trainers, Steve learned that his best teachers were the dogs themselves. By being sensitive to each dog's temperament, situation, and personality traits, Steve and Wesley are able to achieve remarkable results with a minimum amount of time and effort.
Initially, Steve's dog training was set up so that the dogs were housed and trained for one week without the owners. Subsequently, the owners participated in weekly classes with their dog. Over the years, Steve discovered that boarding and training are traumatic for your dog, and create a negative situation for learning. He found that it's critical for the owners to be involved in the training process from the start.
