Evolutionary Dog Training

Dog Trainer at Evolutionary Dog Training in Fort Lauderdale, FL


I am the owner of Evolutionary Dog Training in Hollywood Florida. I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT) and a Certified Trick Dog Instructor (CTDI) I am a Therapy Dog evaluator for Therapy Pets Unlimited and an AKC Canine Good Citizen evaluator. With nearly 12 years as a professional trainer, I have the skills and experience to help you train your dog. Start them out right, with puppy classes for dogs as young as 9 weeks old. Or set them straight with classes for adolescent and adult dogs. Professional training should not be a last resort but a first step to building a great relationship and preventing bad dog behaviors that are harder to fix once they start. You can enjoy your dog even more with some training. Evolutionary Dog Training is modern dog training for modern dog people.
