My name is Dale and I am the CEO and Founder of Top Gun Dog Training. In 2008, while living in Alabama, I rescued this amazing 3 month old Lab Husky Mix named Spaulding. After working with many top dog trainers in the area and using the tools learned to train Spaulding, I finally created my own dog training company. I specialize in training puppies starting at 10 weeks old. More details here.
Over the past 12 years, I have been able to improve and hone my dog training skills to help friends train their own dogs. It was with this feedback and encouragement that I then decided it was time to make my services available to the public.
I have earned a CDTK (Certified in Dog Training Knowledge) and CDTB (Certificate in Dog Training and Behavior) through the Master Course at Catch Canine Trainers Academy.
I am a regular contributor for many national publications, providing my expertise for articles, news stories, and blog posts. You can see all of my contributions on my Press page.
I am also the owner of K9 Business Coach helping small business and other dog trainers grow and succeed in business.
My training methods consist of a combination between classical and operant conditioning, using mostly positive reinforcement. I follow the Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive (LIMA) Effective Behavior Intervention Policy , as explained on this page here.
