After a corporate career in the city I decided to pursue my passion and work with dogs full-time.
Since then, I have used my vast canine knowledge—along with years of studying many different dog training methods from around the globe—to become one of New Zealand’s, and the world’s, most respected dog trainers.
Successful online training program
Doggy Dan is the founder of The Online Dog Trainer, a wildly successful online training program for dog owners. With years of experience working with every type of behavioral dog issue and every breed and age of dog nothing is too tricky for him to help with. Over the last decade alone he has helped over 57,000 people successfully train their dogs and puppies using the exact methods found in The Online Dog Trainer Program.
Gentle training method
This is a program that avoids using any force… “Having studied many trainers from around the world I believe the greatest dog trainers use the least amount of force. So I decided to create a method that uses no force at all. One that was simple and easy for all dog owners to use. By getting the dogs to choose to follow us of their own free will there is no need to use harsh threats, fear or violence, and especially no shock gadgets to get the dogs to behave.”
Respected dog trainer
Since establishing himself as a respected dog trainer, Doggy Dan has written the book, ‘What the Dogs Taught Me About Being a Parent’, published by Random House. On top of a successful book over 100,000 people from around the world subscribe to Doggy Dan’s blog site, and he has been featured in a number of magazines, including Women’s Weekly. Dan has also appeared as a regular guest on many radio shows and made several TV appearances, including Real Housewives of Auckland.
Training trainers around the world
Dog Almighty TV series
Many New Zealanders will recognise Doggy Dan as the celebrity judge from the new hit-TV series, Dog Almighty. Dan helped select the best dog owner teams to move through to the next round and made sure the dogs were looked after and enjoyed themselves. Dan was also instrumental in the show’s overall success: portraying a true reflection of the amazing bond between owners and their dogs.
