Pasquale has been wonderful for my sensitive Border Collie, Kuzco! Despite Kuzco's sensitive nature, Pasquale is patient and works very well with him. We've seen major progress in a short period of time, and I can't wait to continue working with him!
After adopting our 5 month old puppy, we were worried we were in over our heads. We quickly signed our pup up for Puppy Kindergarten with Pasquale. In class we learned about rewarding positive behavior (never punishing bad behavior), types of leash and harnesses for dogs, housebreaking techniques, grooming and diet recommendations and puppy socialization. All of the topics Pas covered were instrumental in making sure we raised a happy, healthy and well adjusted puppy. Pas is great with the dogs and wonderful with addressing owner's questions. We had a great experience and look forward to coming back for basic obedience with Pas.

Pasquale's "positive reinforcement" technique shows the importance of rewarding good behavior, versus punishing bad behavior, and gave us so much insight into the natural psychology of why dogs often do what they do. His personal attention to the needs of each individual dog is so valuable, and he is always happy to answer questions or provide feedback at any point in the training process. His extensive knowledge and background also allows him to provide alternatives when a traditional training method might not be working for your pup, stressing that every dog and dog owner is different. He truly sees your pet as an extended member of the family, and understands that "training" is an ongoing process for both puppy and owner. Pasquale is reliable, patient and has a wonderful sense of humor. He makes the dog-owning experience just that much more rewarding.

Pasquale has been an amazing trainer for our husky, Kona. We met Pasquale through his puppy training class and we've had great experiences with him. He's been a great dog trainer and friend to us and Kona, going above and beyond what we would ever have expected. Pasquale has helped teach us how to communicate and interact with our dog. He is extremely knowledgeable and always takes a unique approach based on the breed and personality of your dog. We've had great results using techniques we learned through his classes.

I adopted Sparky from Hudson County Shelter, and he was aggressive. I had no experience with dogs - only cats!. Having no experience took a lot of learning from both - animal and human. :-). Thanks to Pasquale (aka Pas Dog Training) we were able to find 'our' dance. Four months later Sparky is an adorable puppy, behaved and at ease with me. I feel very lucky to have had the guidance and training from Pas.
We don't know where we would be without you! Phoebe has really come a long way since we first got her and it's in a large part because of you.
