Specialist in dog behavior work, basic, intermediate and advance obedience work, home protection, Police K9, Handler and decoy instructor.

Certified K-9 Instructor/ Trainer and Teacher.


I obtained my certification at the Balu Dog Training Center located in the City of Fontana under the instruction of Jean Claude Balu. Mr. Balu was one of the pioneers of French Ring and Schutzhund Sport in the Southern California in the early 1970's. With this great background Mr. Balu taught me the core tools of dog psychology, behavior, diet, mannerism and how to engage the dogs ability to grown in all aspects of learning.

Mr. Balu retired two years ago but we have built a unique friendship and we still maintain a strong friendship.
