K9 Training with Byron transcends with reliable in your home dog training and behavior modification services in Northern, New Jersey. Along with training the dog, the owner learns hands–on about communicating with clarity, creating balance, and living in harmony with your dog.

My approach towards dog training is modeled towards addressing the fundamental state of mind of your dog rather than strictly focusing on creating rehearsed behaviors. I am much more focused with creating a healthy balanced dog than creating a dog that simply knows a few obedience commands.


When it comes to working with dogs I like to make our training sessions productive, fun, and successful. I love teaching dogs practical behaviors with a Marker System to build a common language. Along with this Marker System I use food to reward the dog for their hard work and effort.

 

This Marker System is efficient in building a common language with puppies and dogs. This includes dogs with behavioral issues such as aggression, resource guarding, fear, or anxiety.​

 

It is a transparent method of communication that is based on positive reinforcement. Along with markers and cues, I incorporate food to reward the dog for the hard work performed and learned. 

 

Along with this system of communication I like to use a go to tool, from my tool box. Practical and efficient tools from my tool box are Clickers, Flat Collars, Martingale Collars, Slip Leads, Prong Collars, Transitional Leashes by (K9-Lifeline) I also use Remote Collars by (E-Collar Technologies).

 

The tools mentioned above are stress-free on any dog when it is humanely employed.

It's a pleasure watching you interact with the puppies with respect and kindness. So glad to have you in our lives.

Our 1-year-old Cockapoo was resource guarding grass clippings, bark, dirt, basically anything that she would pick up on walks.  She would get it in her mouth and growl and snarl if anyone tried to take it out.  I was worried about my son or one of his friends getting bitten because she was protecting dirt!  She was also having issues with running up and jumping on visitors.  Byron came over and helped immediately by providing us with a common language that my family and our dog understood.  Over the course of several weeks, we worked with Byron and practiced on our own and worked to change our dog’s behavior by using the warning phrases that Byron had taught us.  She rarely picks anything up on walks anymore, and if she does (because it is SO YUMMY!), she doesn’t growl or snarl at us and will spit it out if we use the right phrase.  She stays on her “place” and doesn’t jump up any longer.  It is so nice to live with a well-behaved dog who understands what is expected of her because of the language that we now share.  Thanks, Byron!

"Kind & Loving"

My journey with Miri began a little more than two years ago. Miri found and rescued me very unexpectedly when one day Byron stopped by the accounting firm with a dog he was fostering and training for Muddy Paws Rescue. While I was waiting to meet Byron’s personal dog, Hank, that day, instead I met and instantly connected with blue eyes Miri. Witnessing this connection he introduced and talked about Miri, her background and the extensive program she went through and completed while under his care. As much as I was amazed by Miri and Byron’s work that he put into this dog, I had my doubts and fears. Taking in a powerful and highly energetic dog such as Miri would require a lot of work and responsibility on my part. That’s when Byron proved how professional and passionate he is about what he does with humans and dogs. Very patiently he helped me work through getting over my doubts. Since Miri was already trained we began the transition with training me on the verbal markers so that I can learn to clearly communicate with my dog. Next was mastering the walk, such an important skill to learn and understand. From there we
proceeded with obedience, crate training, and dog socialization. Byron did all this to make sure that Miri
and I can have a very good start and a great trusting relationship. He was there every step of the way to answer any questions I had. As a lifelong dog lover and owner, I thought I had a good understating of canine behavior, boy was I wrong. It is thanks to Byron that I understand now what great dog ownership is it all about. It’s not just about meeting the dog's basic needs but forming a bond, a lifelong relationship. That is done by being consistent with training, being disciplined and dedicated. Byron taught and showed me that training is not tedious work, it is fun playtime, happy hour, a quality time spend daily with your dog where not only you help your dog get rid of the physical energy but also challenging your dog mentally, which helps to get your dog in a calm state of mind. I feel very proud and accomplished when I walk my dog I get compliments from passersby’s on how well behaved Miri is. Thank you, Byron, for educating me and showing me what a great and healthy relationship with a dog should be like.
