In addition to training dogs, Eddie believes in Balanced Training methods (reward for positive behaviorus & correct for negative behaviours). In addition his belief to routine & structure has given many benefits to his clients having them understand why and how their dog's act a certain way making communication between their dog and themselves stronger through relationship based exercises.
His variety of clientele includes working with first-time dog owners, standard family households, and affluential busy persons such as: lawyers, doctors, nurses, business owners, and influencers. While working with his clients, Eddie films the progress of the dogs in his care during training in addition to keeping owners updated.
Eddie not only focuses on training dogs, but also educates owners through constant feedback and advice to upkeep the positive progress in the owner's care.
Tatiana is excited to be part of such a wonderful team here at Classic K9 Academy. Prior to joining the the team, Tatiana went through a 3 month shadowing program with Eddie to fully understand and develop her own skills and confidence to guide families and their dog's to the results they've always wanted.
Tatiana's interest and passion in balanced training began with her girl, Norah. Their training journey together has truly opened her eyes to the amazing outcomes that balanced training can have not only in developing your dog’s general obedience, but also in building a strong and lasting relationship with your dog. Having a bond allows for the obedience to fall into place!
Tatiana wishes to work with owners to help them create a solid foundation with their dogs where they can continue to grow and thrive together.
