Who Am I
I have been training dogs professionally for more than 30 years. I have personally trained and obedience titled a variety of breeds. As the founder of Phydeaux/s for Freedom, I served on the Governor’s Workgroup on Guide/Service Dogs for the State of Maryland.

At the present time I am offering a limited number of private lessons, and am available to coach students and give occasional seminars. I am a member of the Citizen’s Advisory Committee for Persons with Disabilities Committee for the city of Laurel, Maryland, and am busy training and showing my newest Doberman.

Having supervised the training of over 100,000 dogs and their owners in group class settings and over 5,000 owners and their dogs in a private setting since 1975, I really believe that most problem dogs are simply bright dogs with no job. Good dogs are the ones who are trained and given jobs. Just remember - you may never be successful in teaching them to do windows, but with direction and recognition for the jobs they do, they will be loving and loyal companions.

Now that the boring stuff is out of the way, I sure hope to hear from you. If you are not local and able to take lessons in person then you should check out my training tapes and perhaps even consider the long distance private lessons. The tapes are free of clutter, short and to the point. With an easy to follow format, you get started on the road to successful training.
