Todd Langston is a canine behavior expert and dog trainer with over 10 years experience teaching humans how to help their dogs become happy, balanced and well behaved. Todd uses pack rules and leadership fundamentals to teach owners how to bring balance and happiness to any dog, of any age, with any issue.
Todd has had the opportunity to work and train with some of the best minds in the business including Linn Boyke, Colleen Steckloff and since 2014 he has worked along side Cesar Millan of National Geographic’s The Dog Whisperer and Cesar 911. Todd was hand picked by Cesar as one of only two head trainers of Training Cesar’s Way. Todd helps Cesar teach students from all over the world how to improve dog behavior by emphasizing the importance of using balanced energy along with his basic fundamentals of dog psychology. Being able to work and learn along one of the worlds best has been a tremendous honor and incredible learning experience but Cesar is only one of the reasons Todd is so effective at helping owners dealing with unwanted behaviors.
Todd credits his ability in helping such a wide range of dogs and people to his early personal experiences owning a highly aggressive dog. As Todd once said, “It’s not until you have felt the helplessness, embarrassment, frustration and guilt of your dog biting a neighbor or experienced the fear and stress of an uncontrollable dog fight in your home that you can truly understand what it takes to help someone in that situation.” Like many of you he contacted several trainers and discovered the difficulty in finding someone capable of helping a dog with serious issues like aggression or fear. And since dog training isn’t regulated, anyone with a business card or website can claim to be an “expert” in dog behavior which only adds to the confusion.
It was at this time Todd met his first mentor, Linn Boyke. Linn had a dog psychology center in Los Angeles and after time as a client he became a student and then an employee. Todd was immersed in a pack of 25+ dogs for weeks at a time and although Linn was his mentor, the dogs were his teachers. The dogs quickly taught him that if he learned their language, used calm energy and fulfilled their mental and physical needs he could change even the most serious behavior issues. It was never about force or intimidation and always about fulfillment and understanding.
Those experiences happened many years ago and Todd’s life has changed considerably since. He got married, moved back here to his home state of Florida, had a child and bought a house. Understanding how life experiences influence the relationship we have with our dogs is vital in helping people going through different phases of life. Its one thing to have the right information and another thing to properly apply it based on life’s current circumstances. Owning dogs through so many different stages of life gives Todd personal insight into helping people from all walks of life.
Todd has helped thousands of dogs and their owners and performed over 3,000 in-home consultations. He is regularly asked to help at shelters, recues, pet conventions and vet's offices and he serves as a behavior consultant for rescues all over the state. A degree in human psychology adds to this unique blend of experiences and has helped him create an easy to follow method recommended by Veterinarians, shelters, rescue groups, groomers, dog daycares and even other trainers.
