Are you local and in need of training help? 

There is more to training than obedience and obeying commands. Take the lead with love and know-how as you learn to truly unleash your dog's potential.

I offer relationship-based training, which fosters trust and creates an emotionally positive experience for both you and your dog in the comfort of your own home.

You'll learn to see your dog's behavior from a body, mind, and spirit perspective. Together we'll find the issues that might be standing in the way of your dog's success, and I'll teach you about your dog's needs, and what he or she is trying to tell you that you might not be aware of.

I'll teach you to recognize characteristics specific to your dog’s breed and how to enhance his or her natural skills and tendencies. I’m really excited to show you your dog’s potential! I enjoy seeing the healthy relationships that are built through Holistic Dog Training.


I also enjoy the rewarding lick I get when I'm done with the dog's rehabilitation and when they finally feel safe, know their job, and feel the new bond you create with them during the training process.

Roman has a peaceful, confident air about him which caused my “great grand” Bullies to respond immediately. My grandson has 2 7-month-old American Bullies, from the same litter.

Roman has positive ideas about individualizing their training without keeping them constantly separated.
Bottom line when I use the methods that Roman demonstrated the pups respond very well and they seem happy with all the positive praise instead of constant “no, no no! The rest of the family is happy too!

 I'm often called in for cases that others can't handle, the rough ones where the dog might be put down or surrendered because of reactive or aggressive behavior. I am honored to be part of the path of healing for these dogs and their owners. Everyone benefits.

As a Certified Reiki Master and Crystal Healing therapist, I can sense the energy shift within the family system during the training process.
It's my mission to help people understand that dogs are here to support our emotional and spiritual path and are not here to "serve" us. We can enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship that is healing for both human and dog by creating a team environment where everyone is happy and gets what they need.

My training methods are force-free, positive, and emotionally supportive. My worldwide proven science-based dog training methods not only empower you to handle your dog with more confidence, but I also provide the tools necessary for you to train any dog you have in the future.

With one of the highest rehabilitation success rates in the country, I offer the best and fastest results for your dog.

I see clients in down town area, including Suburbs, and provide force free dog training and behavior modification for dogs with any type of problems.

We recently adopted a very fearful dog from a local shelter and we knew we would need help with him before we even took him home. I was referred to a dog trainer who insisted that our little guy needed to be “broken like a wild horse” and his training methods left me wary of other trainers to say the least. Next up, I found Roman. His approach is kind and incredibly effective. I was so relieved to hear that I didn’t have to be my dog’s “pack leader” or employ methods that just didn’t feel right. Tucker progresses at his own rate and I am able to watch him make marked progress every time we work with him. Roman understands my dog and what he needs and adjusts his approach to get the best out of him. He is simply amazing and I would absolutely never use another dog trainer! Hire Roman and I promise you, you will not be disappointed. He will change the way you think about your dog and help you understand him/her in ways you never realized were possible.

Training and Behavior Healing Bundles

Strong Bond Bundle

$585* ($130 savings)

If one session can change the world for your dog, imagine the benefit of my holistic behavior healing system. It will make your dog love you even more.

This in-home package is designed for New Dog Parents with puppies or dogs with moderate behavior issues ( excluding aggressive behavior toward humans), and is the most popular package. It ’s tailored to your dog's unique needs and your training goals. 

If you have a human aggressive dog or a dog with serious emotional or physical trauma, I suggest the premium package instead of this one, which includes a systemic evaluation. I specialize in complex behavior issues and have created a package specifically for “problem” dogs.

Puppy Parenting and training Bundle

IMG_7296.JPG

In my 11 years of experience working worldwide with over 2500 families with dogs , the number one reason for behavior issues is unhealthy relationships. Poor human/canine relationships can cause a lack of trust, difficulty with learning, stress, and even fear for an adult dog. If you know how to create a healthy connection with your dog while it's young, then training will be easy and effective. Your Puppy will become a great family dog.
Most people think regular puppy classes in stores is the solution.

The Reality:
Puppy classes that are available in the market are only addressing obedience problems. Social interaction is limited to the small class with the same dogs in the same room for six weeks per class, due to liability issues only on leash in a small space.

What they cover:
Due to insurance restrictions and business policies the safety of trainer, people and of other puppies limits the range of education, and covers only few of 10 puppy development stages.

Hassle:
You have to leave the house travel for 20 mins to an hour round trip, your whole family cannot attend, and if you have another pet, sorry it has to stay at home alone.
To get all the information you need to train your puppy, you must attend all 5-6 additional classes, each six weeks long.

Problems:
Your puppy might be great in class but not in your home. By the time you finished all levels, your puppy has already shown behavior problems you are not yet ready to address, and likely to hire a trainer.

Vaccination Policy:
Even tough vaccines are important for your dog and his health, it can intefere with the puppy’s needs of training. To attend a class your puppy needs to vaccinated, and usually you can’t start unless you have all shuts completed, or up to date with ridiculous yearly vaccines rules ( just to get you in their veterinary treatment plan). That is a huge delay in the puppy’s social development. ( New research states that last puppy parvo-virus vaccine should be given at 18 weeks of age.) Pets-stores and most vets want to push all vaccines at the same time which causes huge stress on the dogs body and health.

That’s a Catch-22

What other people have to say:
Here a great Video testimonial from Haku’s mom. Haku graduated from Puppy class at PetSmart on February 28th, 2018 ! She describes how the class was worked for her, how Haku did, and if she thought it was worth it! To follow Haku’s journey subscribe here

Risk of Puppy-classes
In Pet-stores: Puppy get easily over excited, can’t focus, are stressed, or get fearful of other dogs etc. In some cases the class consist of only few dogs, some are very stressed which affects every one else. The trainer either has to address the behavior during class and ignore the others or ignore the struggling puppy and move on with the class leaving the one behind.

Lack of trust:
Some Puppies have not established trust with their human guardians (insecure attachment) leading the puppy to reactive behavior and even aggression.

Cost:
Usually, in brick and mortar stores each class costs about $119. To teach your puppy what it needs to know you need to attend 4-6 classes, each 6 weeks long. Average cost $600 to get a average knowledge about obedience and limited socialization, with no in home or other trouble-shooting skills.
If your puppy shows an unwanted behavior, you either wait 30 weeks or hire a trainer. Because of insurance restrictions and BSL policies some breeds are not accepted in classes forcing owners to either skip puppy classes or wear muzzles.

Behavior:
Most people struggle with their dog’s behavior at home, kids, visitors, other pets. its practically impossible to recreate the events in commercial classes.

  • Dogs behave differently in public than in the class

  • Dogs are not protective of their home or yard during class

  • Different stressors, in different places lead to different behavior

  • Kids and the partner are important part of the training and should attend the class.

Distance:
Finding a good puppy class is difficult near your home is rare, round-trip from 30-60 mins is very common.
