BIOGRAPHY

Bill is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer-Knowledge Assessed, was awarded the Dip.CBST title from CASI, and graduated from the Animal Behavior College with Honors. He is also a Certified Pet Tech Instructor, teaching CPR/First Aid for domestic pets. Bill has over 30 years of experience in dog breeding, handling, conditioning, and behavior change. He does private, in-home behavior consulting, and specializes in Puppy Training to assistance with early socialization and focus, and behavior change protocols for dogs with behavioral issues. He concentrates on shelter/rescue dogs, including “aggressive” behavior cases. He works with breeds and breed-mixes other trainers won’t accept. All of his training methods are strictly positive and he is proficient in clicker training. He has been very successful in conditioning field/hunting dogs using positive reinforcement, and one of his goals is to change the use of shock collars and aversive handling in field training to positive methods only!  He has extensive experience with Beagles, English Springer Spaniels, and Brittanys (his breed of choice!). He is also a Guardian with the ASPCA and HSUS, who has asked to him to testify before the New Hampshire House of Representatives on issues like puppy mill legislation, and “abuses” with rescue dog placement from out-of-market. These have created a growing need for behavior conditioning and problem behavior change, which is where he concentrates his attention. Studying behaviorolgy has greatly enhanced and improved his skills and protocols, and he looks forward to expanding its influence in our respective conditioning fields.
