My viewpoints on dog training,
fitness, & nutrition
I have been professionally training dogs to better behavior, optimize fitness, and improve diets for many years. Many of my family, friends, and followers are often curious to my personal opinions and methods to dog training, fitness, and nutrition because I have never had a platform to share my personal views.
Optimal Canine’s blog will serve as a platform where I will share content based on my personal opinions, approaches, and methods. The posts I publish on Optimal Canine’s blog are my biased views founded on preference, experience, and science.
Every professional, regardless of the industry they serve, has their own approach when fulfilling their goals. In this blog post, I hope to provide a clear picture of my viewpoints on:
My training beliefs and methods are very different from mainstream media. I am not in the business for quick and instant results because I do not believe anyone, human or canine, can become an expert in anything in a short amount of time.
I am very interested in a dog’s cognitive process and the behaviors that follow as well the science of learning theory and its effective application in dog training. I understand why dogs behave the way they do and I use the most current and progressive training methods to improve their behavior.
My goal in dog training is to create long lasting results through positivity, fun, relationship, and leadership.
Canine Fitness & Conditioning
Undesirable problems arise when a dog’s biological requirements for physical stimulation are not consistently met. Problematic behaviors such as destructive chewing and medical issues from obesity stem from lack of physical exercise. I have a goal to help educate pet parents on how to effectively exercise their dog to overcome and prevent these issues.
I am very interested in coaching dog owners to help their dog achieve and maintain physical fitness, regardless if their goals are for sport performance or for family activities. I understand how to target muscle groups in fitness programs to increase muscle strength, coordination, and confidence.
My canine fitness and conditioning training programs focus on safety, form, structure, and strength.
Diet & Nutrition
Reviewing and modifying a dog’s diet when training for better behavior and working on physical fitness is often overlooked, but I believe nutrition plays a vital component in achieving an Optimal Canine. When the body is provided nutritious whole foods, behavior improves because the dog’s physical health improves!
I am very interested in educating pet parents on ways to provide their dog with a fresh food diet in a cooked or raw diet. I understand how to formulate nutritionally balanced diets with unprocessed food to improve health, fitness, and behavior.
My canine diet and nutrition programs focus on nourishment, fresh food, proactive recipes, and individualized diets.
Achieve the Optimal Canine
I hope to inspire pet parents, as well as sport performance competitors to adopt my viewpoints and routinely practice my methods when training, exercising, and feeding their dog. Our dog’s lives become more enriched and exciting when we provide the tools to teach them better behaviors, along with the outlets for physical exercise and a diet to nourish the body. I believe when we combine my methods for dog training for better behavior, canine fitness, and ideal nutrition that we achieve the Optimal Canine!
