Would You Like A Calm, Obedient Dog?

Steven James -
Certified Dog Behaviorist/Trainer

I’m Steven James, Dog Behaviorist and I’d love to help you have the courteous, calm, and amazing dog you deserve. 

The Problems

Do you want to keep your dog from jumping up on people, or from barking excessively, pulling on the lead, being aggressive, mouthing, or even getting under your feet in the kitchen? I can help. And, with this method, your dog(s) will more easily learn how to sit, stay, wait, roll over, fetch, high-five, and a host of other behaviors.

About Me

Hi, I’ve loved dogs all of my life. As a kid, our family had several breeds over the years. As an adult, my love for dogs grew stronger. Over the years I have worked with a lot of breeds in several countries, including my own pets. I’ve also worked as a high school science teacher, so I’ve been naturally curious about how dogs think, and the best ways to train. That’s what led me to becoming a certified professional. 

How This Method Works

My method uses scientific, modern brain-based behavior modification using operant conditioning to teach your dog how to be a calm, courteous member of your family. I help you to understand how your dog(s) think and why they behave the way they do. Then, not only will you see an immediate change, but I’ll give you the tools and knowledge to ensure you’ll enjoy a lifetime of peace and joy with your dog.

There’s a reason for hope

You and your dog(s) can enjoy a wonderful, long life together. And isn’t it great that this can happen at a price far less than many others charge just to teach your dog a few tricks but doesn’t address the whole nature of your dog?

It was a joy to have Steve come out and give us some tools we could use for our 3 dogs. We could see a difference in them the next day.

Steve is very knowledgeable about dog behaviors and personalities. He does an excellent job at sharing practical examples and then how to use them with your dog. We liked how he was easy to connect to. He was funny, professional, and sincere. We saw improvements just hours after our first session. We highly recommend him as a dog trainer!

Hope is not lost and we are so grateful for Mr. Steve!

He even followed up with us to see how we were doing; his standard is excellence – stop your search here.
