Hi, I'm Ted Efthymiadis

Behavioural issues and aggression problems are what I do all day, everyday.

I use a balanced training approach that includes using positive motivators when your dog is doing things that you want them to do, and negative motivators when you want to discourage things that you don't want your dog to do. Simple!

“Fantastic trainer and course work. Having a reactive dog myself this had really helped me understand how to help my own dog.”

Karen WilsonKaren Wilson

“I love the theory behind Ted's work. He just oozes confidence and explains things so clearly. Everything in this course makes so much sense to me. Excellent practical application to everyday situations. Love the quote 'You get what you need in a dog, not what you want. Something I am learning big time with my own dogs. Great course you can see Ted's love for the dogs is so genuine.”

Cassandra ColbertCassandra Colbert

“Ted uses a truly balanced approach to dog training and does a great job explaining what he is doing and why he is doing it, and he has the experience to back up his methods. Also, the quality of these videos is excellent, so it is easy to focus on the content of the videos while watching them. These videos would be good to watch for both dog trainers like myself as well as dog owners.”

“Ted has got some incredible knowledge. I’ve never heard someone describe the use of food in training in such a logical, no-nonsense sort of way. Having come from the world of pure positive, it was easy for me to have a bad taste in my mouth seeing it's limitations. It’s been a really big roadblock for me. He changed the game for me!”

Josh DonahueJosh Donahue

“I like Ted's teaching style. He does not come off as condescending in his videos. He has a calm approach to his training with his dogs. I also love the fact that he is not just standing there and lecturing. You get to see by examp”

Anne-Marie KazawoskiAnne-Marie Kazawoski

“While I have taken several courses with different methodologies, his seemed to be more balanced between utilization of positive vice "negative" or corrective reinforcement. Additionally, showing the progression and discussing the differences of each dog through their training reinforced one style does not fit every dog. Like people, they respond differently to extraneous stimuli. ”
