Depend on him to work with you to create a program uniquely tailored to your dog's personality and needs.

Puppy & Dog Selection

Let Shawn help you select a breed that is appropriate for you and your family's lifestyle. Whether you are considering a purebred dog or a shelter/rescue mix, he can assist you in the selection process by addressing any potential issues that will cause you to mesh or conflict with the dog.

Puppy Development

Training for the family can begin the day you decide to bring a new furry bundle of joy into your home. Shawn makes puppy ownership a joy by teaching you, as well as your new puppy, how to act by incorporating proper responses to everyday situations. His methods include:

Private & Family Sessions in Your Home

Training in the home has the greatest effect on your dog's in-home behavior. Whether your home is in NYC or a quiet cul-de-sac in the suburbs, Shawn will teach you and your dog in a comfortable learning environment with little distraction. He strives to incorporate all members of the family to provide more consistency for your dog. After he has achieved the desired results in your home, he'll take a field trip to a high-distraction area, allowing your dog to experience training in a diversity of environments.

Aggression Management

Aggression has many sources that must all be looked at and taken into consideration. Finding the source and addressing the issues rather than making excuses will help to manage and possibly even stop certain types of aggression. Shawn provides you with safe handling, effective training/behavioral methods, and—most importantly—the truth. He uses a step-wise program to evaluate, modify behavior, and leash train aggressive dogs with an end goal of stability under high-stress situations.

Boarding Training

Boarding training will be considered for current clients in certain situations. Shawn can also provide you with referrals for boarding training.

Protection Training & Service Dogs

If you have a specific need for a protection-trained dog, contact Shawn to discuss the best option. This is an important decision, and Shawn recommends taking the time to consult with him first to ensure you receive a dog that succeeds when they're needed the most. He has many contacts within the law enforcement and private security industries, meaning he has many sources to choose from when selecting a protection dog that works for you. Please check in for available puppies as well as trained dogs that are available to select homes. He promises the highest level of discretion to ensure your privacy.
