Meet our trainer
Adam Piñero (S. U. S. A. R. , AKC Evaluator) as our trainer offers skills honed over a decade of professional and private dog training. Beginning as an apprentice and trainer for Eagle Valley Search Dogs, he worked at the highest level of dog training for many years. After Eagle Valley, he moved to police detection dogs and competitive obedience before landing in private dog training in New York City. Adam believes in the scientifically proven methods of positive reinforcement. Reward based training has been proven to be the most effective training method in every situation from basic obedience to fear aggression and reactivity. Using treats, toys, and lots of love, he can and will build your dog’s knowledge and confidence while sharing with you how to maintain and improve your relationship with your furry friend.
As a trainer, Adam believes in the bond you have with your dog above all else. His training is centered on building a lasting relationship between you and your dog based on clear communication, boundaries, and affection.
In our One-on-One sessions, your trainer will come to you and spend one hour a week teaching you how to do what they do. We believe that our clients should leave us ready to move forward with all the tools they need to succeed. These classes are the perfect option for those who need specific obedience training or a single behavior modified.
