Former Dog Trainer

I grew up with pets - my parents were given a puppy soon after I was born. As a kid, we had dogs, birds, lizards, rabbits, and fish. As an adult, for years my work hours were too long to have a dog, so I remedied that by quitting my job and buying a dog training franchise. For 10 years I taught dog owners how to address behavior challenges such as aggression, sibling rivalry, jumping, pulling ...

What David would like to know about your dog

I'm open to all breeds, sizes, and ages. Just give me advance warning if, say, they're likely to be aggressive or be so enthusiastically friendly that they could knock me down the stairs.

When David watches your pet

Where we go will be catered to the individual dog - I'm OK with long walks in the city or Rock Creek, spending time at the dog park, taking slow ambles near home, hanging out and watching the world go by, playing games in the home, or petting a pooch until my arm goes numb. I'm flexible - what we do will depend on the needs and abilities of the dog and the desires of the owner. And as somebody who has been around A LOT of dogs, I'm OK with pretty much any dog behavior that is OK with the owners - I've been jumped on, mouthed, licked excessively, and slobbered on countless times and don't mind such things as long as they're not a violation of the rules of the household.
