About Our Trainer:

John Frisch is an Animal Behavior and Training Specialist. He has been specializing in obedience and aggression management for over 20+ years. Animals respond to him almost immediately. He has a gift for connecting with them. John will teach you what you need to know to do the same for your animal.

John’s unique approach is one he developed through years of research and personal experience. He teaches the dogs through body language, spatial relationships and some leash correction with verbal cues. All of which give the dog everything they need  to ensure the best training for you and your dog.
