My name is Dale and I am the CEO and Founder of Top Gun Dog Training. In 2008, while living in Florence AL, I rescued this amazing 3 month old Lab Husky Mix named Spaulding, shown in this photo with me.. After working with many top dog trainers in AL and FL, and using the tools learned to train Spaulding, I took several professional Dog Trainer Courses and created Top Gun Dog Training. I specialize in training puppies starting at 10 weeks old.
Over the past several years, I have completed numerous knowledge based dog training and behavior courses through numerous professional organizations.
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 host and producer of the Puppy Talk Podcast.
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.
