Todd rescued us after we rescued Crystal. He loves dogs and has an innate sense and understanding of dog psychology that I feel he must have been born with. When he models the behavior of a pack leader he provides you with something you can’t get from reading books or watching film. These lessons are priceless.

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. Like many of you he knows what its like to be married, have kids, and juggle a business all while trying to deal with a few dogs, cats and other moving parts. Life gives us many different scenarios and Todd understands how life experiences influence the relationship we have with our dogs. Its one thing to have the information from google but another thing to properly apply it based on your life’s current circumstances.

Over the last 13 years Todd has helped thousands of dogs and their owners and performed over 3,000 in-home consultations. His experiences have helped him create an easy to follow method recommended by Veterinarians, shelters, rescue groups, groomers, dog daycares and even other trainers.

If those you trust to care for your dog passionately believe Todd is the best trainer to help your training needs - shouldn’t you?   

I work hand in hand with a local dog rescue. As you may expect, we have our fair share of difficult cases and Pack Life has never let us down. From everyday issues like introductions, leash manners, and door etiquette to more extreme situations like aggression, food/toy possession and even Deaf dog training, Todd has been a wonderful resource for our rescue to utilize. Todd has a way of viewing and understanding the interactions between dogs and humans that seems second nature to him. We are fortunate enough to be able to utilize Pack Life’s amazing talents when ever we have an issue and I personally use Pack Life’s services for my own pack. He is my go to name when ever I need to give a recommendation.
