DAVID BARON DOG TRAINER
What I am most proud of is my developing a unique dog training method that is all about who you are to your dog and the relationship you have in the pack at your house. The Dog Psychology Method curriculum used by our trainers works great with easy and difficult dogs alike, whether they are in California, Arizona, New York, Connecticut, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Texas, Hawaii or Nevada. For my A Better trainers, it is routine to help people successfully keep and rehabilitate dogs that other dog trainers, veterinarians and behaviorists recommend be destroyed.
My Dog Psychology Method works for most people too. I grew up in a culture where it was assumed that everyone did everything they could to improve themselves. Now, I help help clients develop themselves so they have better confidence by using the right kind of voice, body language, posture, attitude and timing. We develop dog owners so they are the kind of people dogs respect, trust and respond to.
I am not a "Dog Whisperer." That implies one has some innate and extraordinary ability with dogs. What I teach is a method with a curriculum that works without John Vinton or the trainer present, off leash, without food-bribery, and definitely without using anything ridiculous like clickers, shock collars or Gentle Leaders.
If you read this and you know of other dog trainers who are getting similar results and have a program that is maybe even better than our's, please contact me because I have a hard time imagining anything better than what my A Better trainers are doing. I don't really know of any other trainers with web sites who have dozens and dozens of dogs off-leash, are dog obedience trainers who are behavior and aggression experts, and who provide training to over 5,000 new clients each year as we do.
I like what we are doing and so do our clients because what we do works. More importantly, the dogs seem much happier with a strong, confident owner that looks and acts like a leader to them.
We aren't the kind of dog trainers that tell you that our way is the only way, and that everyone else is wrong. We will tell you everything everybody else is doing too if you want; however, we will recommend what works and gets results. We respect the opinions of others, but do not agree that there is always more than one way to accomplish certain things.
My experience with dog training has pretty much exceeded anything I ever could have dreamed of. My vision is to be the person who developed a method for teaching people to train dogs that everyone uses. I dream of a world where there are dog trainers in almost every city who can help even the most stubborn, dominant and aggressive dogs--a world where people train aggressive and dominant dogs instead of euthanizing them. I see a better time ahead not just for dog owners, but for many who will heed the call to be a dog trainer like I did.
Please call me, or one of my trainers in your area, if you are looking for something better.
August 28, 2008 - Marin, CA. A Better, Inc. providing in-home dog training and behavioral services in Northern and Southern California, Nevada, Arizona, Hawaii, Texas, New York and Connecticut announces the introduction of a new social-networking entertainment, educational and media service, A Better Group Adventure Walks.
What could be possibly more exciting than big group adventure walks with dogs, and their owners wearing A Better t-shirts with corporate logos, drinks, food, comedian MC's, entertainment, awards, speeches and a huge theme party after the adventure walks for charity? Group Adventure Walks are for everyone who likes having a good time, anyone interested in having fun with dogs, and wants to meet new people and have a good time.
A Better Adventure Walk leaders will inspire members to try harder in life and believe in themselves. These guest luminaries then speak at the banquet and party after the walk. A Better Group Adventure Walks will be the launching platform for individuals and businesses to communicate great new ideas, whatever they be, that can make peoples' lives either easier or better. The whole idea behind A Better Group Walks is to get everyone on board about making peoples' lives better, including their own, and get everyone fired up about coming up with their own ideas and making a difference. Whether fresh out a university, or a dropout from one, the walks will be these persons forum to communicate those ideas in an intimate way to about 200-300 people who like dogs, know how to have a good time, and are interested in knowing what the good ideas are (that maybe everyone doesn't know about yet).
What could be more exciting than that? "Thousands of memberships, corporate sponsorship and incredible opportunities for venues looking to increase their revenue and generate interest with regularly scheduled events," says A Better CIO John Vinton. "A Better Group Adventure Walks is the next big thing. Across America thousands of people will look forward to Group Adventure Walks where they meet new people, have a great time and learn something exciting and new. After the walk is a big party, drinking and food paid for by corporate sponsors. Who doesn't want to have a really good time, learn new things that give you an advantage in life, and be invited to the best parties, especially if you are single?," Baron adds. A Better Walks will have an initial launch in the second quarter of 2009 in twenty cities.
yA Better Group Walk parties will be showcasing new talent and will provide world-class entertainment at each event AND the best part is you are invited to the party and can be part of something really great instead of just watching it on TV.
