It's Not About Obedience. It's About Trust.

Do you TRUST your dog? To come when called, to walk with a loose leash, to resist that squirrel running up the tree?
More importantly, does your dog trust YOU? Because you can’t have one without the other.
That’s the secret of effective dog training. It’s not a competition, it’s a partnership.

Unlimited Devotion


Laser Focus. Rocket Recall. Loose-Leash Walking. Impulse Control. Reliability. These are the hallmarks of Motivated Discipline, one of the principle elements of Trust-Based Training. You don’t get this kind of devotion from mere obedience.


Is this the kind of relationship you have with your dog?


Or let me ask it another way: is this the kind of relationship you WANT with your dog?


Introducing Trust-Based Training: a relationship-centered, positive-reinforcement approach to dog behavior management. Trust-Based Training teaches you how to be the leader your dog needs so they can become the happy, devoted family member you’ve always wanted.

Trust-Based Training uses no aversives, no force, and is 100% positive reinforcement. Which means: no ill side effects, no damaged relationship with your dog, and RESULTS

I Train You To Train Your Dog

Have you tried group classes, only to find out that the “one-size-fits-all” approach doesn’t seem to fit YOUR dog and YOUR situation?


Or have you spent thousands of dollars to board your dogs at a training facility, only to realize that you have no idea how to replicate the good behaviors the facility trainers supposedly instilled in your dog?


Hi, I’m Bruce the Groovy Dogs Guy, and I offer an Intensive In-Home Training Program called Six Weeks to a Groovy Dog that can be tailored to your dog’s (and YOUR) specific needs and issues.


During that 6 weeks I’m your personal training coach: I provide 6 ninety-minute in-person sessions backed up with your own webpage with daily updates, articles, and videos to help you through the process.

And if you need more hands-on assistance, I offer two accelerated plans, depending on the immediacy of your needs.

If you’re interested, the next step would be to set up a no-obligation meet & greet at your earliest convenience. That would allow me to do a quick assessment of your situation, and for you to determine if I’m the guy for the job. If that works for you or if you have any further questions, fill out my contact form and I’ll get back to you ASAP. Thanks! ~ Bruce
