owner with the dog

A good friend, and mentor taught me that success in training relies heavily on communication. "Let the dog experts teach you to be your dog's expert", he'd say. In training, we focus on building understanding between dogs and owners. We find what motivates our dogs. We encourage and develop healthy drive. This makes for a fun and educational training experience while we shape new behavior patterns. We then ask these of them under real-world distraction. Teaching both dog and owner the importance of each role in the relationship.

Mariano is the best! When I got Jack he was a traumatized rescue who was aggressive because of his fear and insecurity. But with Mariano’s help, he is happy and well-trained.
Hire Mariano, follow his training (for both you and your dog!), and you will be amazed at the results. There are no bad dogs, but there are plenty of people who don’t know what to do to help their dog. Thanks to Mariano, you can reduce the number of people in that category by at least one. You will not regret it!

Mariano worked wonders with my lil Queensland Tate. He taught Tate how to behave properly and taught ME how to incorporate his new learned skills into our everyday life. Mariano is extremely dedicated to his craft, extremely knowledgeable, patient and animated to make the training interesting and fun. I highly recommend Mariano to anyone looking for a fabulous dog trainer!!!
