Ruby is a 6 month old Saint Bernard puppy who is an absolute sweetheart. Her family are experienced dog owners, so they understand the importance of early training. That’s why they contacted me for in-home dog training in Ossining NY.
Every dog needs to learn how to walk nicely on-leash, “Come” when called, and “Stay” when their owners need them to. This is even more important with very large and strong breed dogs, such as a Saint Bernard.
My training approach has been shaped by working with almost one thousand dogs of all breeds, ages, and sizes. So if you need help with your new puppy or adult dog, don’t hesitate to contact me with your questions: 914-774-7654 or Steve@srdogtraining.com

Asia is a three year old Chow Chow that loves her family but was not fond of strangers. Her owners were struggling with classical territorial based aggression. Asia was perfect with any member of her family or those she viewed as being in her “inner circle”. Her owners contacted me for help with dog training in Ossining NY, because Asia would display a different side of her personality when approached by strangers.
Anytime Asia was approached by a person she did not know, she would begin barking, growling, and lunging. This behavior would take place wherever she thought her “territory” was – in the home, in her yard, or out on a walk in her neighborhood. Her owners were looking for a professional dog trainer in Ossining NY, so they contacted me for guidance. The first thing we did was determine that her aggression stemmed from territorial issues, not fear or dominance.
From there, we came up with a behavior improvement and management plan that her owners understood and can implement. I always stress to puppy owners that it is essential to lay a proper foundation of rules, obedience training, and structure, in order to prevent issues from occurring later on in life. Many owners either do not do this, or even despite their best efforts, issues still arise. By using simple, safe, and effective dog training principles, we are able to improve upon an adult dog’s behavior issues. In doing so, it reduces stress and improves the quality of life for both dog and owner.
Whether you are in need of adult dog training in Ossining NY or anywhere else, it is important to understand that dog training is a process which should be based on principles. In order for training to be both effective and fair to the dog, you cannot simply use harsh corrections or random training techniques. That is the main reason why I only use safe dog training principles that have been proven effective with all dogs, regardless of breed, age, or size.
