All About Us
We Teach Humans How to Communicate with Their Dogs in a Whole New Way!
We have been loving and training dogs with PATIENCE, Positive Reinforcement and solid PACK LEADER skills for over 25 years! Your comprehensive and insightful evaluation session gives you as much time as you need to ask every question you can think of, show us the behavior you're experiencing, and learn skills to transform your relationship with your dog in your FIRST SESSION! After we solve your manners and obedience issues, let us teach you how to: Master the Walk, go Hiking Off-Leash, have Impeccable Restaurant Manners, & Treat Other Dogs/People with Calm Respect. Have an issue with crate training, social behavior, or want advanced obedience (voice/hand signal command)? Owner/Founder Brian Wacik is called the "Tucson Dog Whisperer" by his clients (with good reason), & every Associate Trainer is trained by him personally, according to exacting standards.
Satisfied Pack Leaders. Happier Pets.
Brian started working with us and Charlie from the minute he arrived at our house. Each training session addressed our needs and got right to the issues we were having with Charlie. He has helped us set goals and gave us homework to implement them. I recommend Brian highly - he is patient, persistent and truly a “dog whisperer”.
Our Assistant Trainer Barbara comes to us with a wealth of experience from her 10 years in the veterinary field (she knows more than she thinks and her instincts are dead on). She has a magnificent drive to learn, what appears to be boundless energy (she needs it, as she’s an elite runner) and she is a wonderful Pack Leader to her two current Aussies, Hoka and Tempo. When she jumps into something, its definitely with both feet, and Brian is filling her schedule with cool dogs, cool folks and big fun! She has quickly become indispensable to the All Dog Obedience style of Communication 1st, Manners 2nd and then Obedience becomes easy.
Labeled the Tucson Dog Whisperer by clients, Brian maintains a full schedule of private, in-home training sessions and group obedience classes as well.
Among the many things he teaches in his casual, laid back style, some of the most important are his Communication 1st, Manners 2nd, Obedience 3rd protocol. He believes in structure, exercise, affection, & Pack Leadership. He knows his most valuable tool is first/last/always an abundance of PATIENCE. He teaches you how to recogize cues, and use Body Language, Eye Contact & Energy - your dog's dominant communication style - to get the behavior you want quickly and easily. "You master communication" he likes to say, "and you can take your dog anywhere; after all, this is Tucson!"
