Anthony started off his dog training career in Tucson Arizona and his business in Tucson continues to flourish. He began to invest in learning from some of the greatest minds in the field of dog training from all over the country. To this day Anthony continues to invest into learning as much as possible, when possible. This has made Anthony one of the most diverse and sought out professionals in his field, and he practices diversity in his problem solving approaches. This is the reason for his success!
Anthony believes in keeping an open mind when it comes to learning about dogs. Anthony believes that a dog should be evaluated and judged on an individual basis, not solely by its breed. He has, and will continue to oppose Breed Specific Legislation in all of its discriminatory forms. No dog is too old to be helped as long as medical issues have been ruled out. He is passionate about helping bully breeds and Pit Bull type dogs. Anthony's goal is to help dispel the stereotypes and the way we perceive these dogs. He believes that breed "type" is overused when dogs learn how to mis behave in different environments. There are many factors and variables that are at play when dogs misbehave, or act out in aggressive behaviors. Above all dogs are associative and situational learners. We must understand this when we hope to modify or change a dogs behavior rather than simply blame the behavior on breed alone.
Anthony has a strong passion for working dogs too. He enjoys teaching and participating in all aspects of working dogs be it Scent Detection, Personal Protection, Patrol K-9, Service dogs or competitive dog sports such as AKC Obedience, Rally-O, Flyball, Dock Diving, IPO (Schutzhund), and Ring Sport. Anthony's diversity is what sets him apart from other professionals!
