My first day at dog trainer school with Michael Ellis, I introduced myself, and I said, "Hi, my name is Jonathan. I’m from the IT world, and if you’d have asked me five years ago where I’d be, this is the last place I would have thought of. But here I am, and there’s no place else I’d rather be." I had found my why with intuition, grit, and determination and my belief that everything will be okay, as I will be with you throughout the journey. I've been reading about dog behavior, human behavior, motivation techniques, and more. I am always looking to find a better way. The more I learn, the more I want to learn. The more I train, the more I want to train. I am now furthering my dog training career by competing in the bite sport arenas, AKC, and training other dog trainers. I train dogs because I love doing so. I didn't find this world; this world found me. I am continually motivated to strive, to grow, to do better, and to be better. I focus on the dog that is right in front of me and the people in that dog's life. I design personalized and custom dog training solutions for clients and their dogs, so both can experience the relationship they were meant to have. I listen, I learn, and then I act to add value and happiness to people's lives and help to build bonds between them that are full of love. I help to build a work, life, and pet integration foundation. What motivates me is the moment dog training clicks for both dog owner and dog. That moment is what inspires me and motivates me every day because that moment is magic. I always look for the why behind all dog behavioral problems, and I never cookie cutter, rush, or force things. I don't look for the quick fix, and I can't give you a timeframe on how long this will take. I focus on finding the value and quality of life for everyone involved, and if the dog is happy, so, too, will be the owner. I work with all dog breeds and aggressive dogs. I won't turn a dog away because they are a "hopeless" case, which I don't believe any dog is hopeless. In fact, I love the underdogs and their breakthrough moments in dog training. I am constantly in pursuit of the why. Training your dog may not be simple or easy, but you'll have support and me cheering you both on. Your dog training will be a journey that will bring more happiness to your world. Call today to get started!
