Canine Cohen Dog Training

It didn't come as a surprise to anyone when I became a Certified Canine Training and Behavior Specialist. Wherever I go, it seems that dogs come to meet me. It started back when I was 9 years old living in Israel. One by one by one these dogs were following me and before I knew it, I had a pack of local strays to keep me company. 


More recently, I was lucky to have a very spirited rescue dog I named Cheddar. As he grew up he started exhibiting signs of leash aggression. After approaching a few different dog trainers and working with Cheddar myself, I was inspired to help other dogs and their owners.


I started by volunteering with Badass Brooklyn Animal Resuce after adopting my current dog Karma from them. I realized that helping humans and dogs communicate better is the best way to saving these amazing dogs' lives. I decided that being a Dog Trainer was the path for me.


This brought me to the largest, and most comprehensive dog training school in the world, Starmark Academy, where I graduated from the Canine Training and Behavior Special Program. 


I love dogs and believe that they deserve to have the best lives possible. That's why I apply the best training techniques to motivate your dog, inspire you as a dog owner, and help foster a better relationship between you both.


I am a Veteran of the US Army, a Professional Member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT), and Associate Member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP).
