Hello, my name is Larry Fine. I proudly serve the Philadelphia area as a professional dog trainer and behavior consultant. I have built a solid reputation for providing results oriented service at very reasonable rates. My positive attitude and dedicated work ethic have provided me success throughout my professional career and personal life. There's a saying, "when you love what you do, you never work a day in your life." That's why I work with dogs. Since opening Doggyality, I have worked on over 400 cases.
I started training dogs with Jeff and Yael Morgan at Howlywood, a canine behavioral center. They taught me to work with their pack and proved the benefits of a balanced dog.
Continuing my education, I studied canine psychology and canine physiology. Understanding those differences between dog and human is invaluable. Applying both art and science to my techniques allows me to deal with behavior issues at the core.
To further my practical experience, I enrolled in an apprenticeship with Dawn Watson at Brother of the Wolf. I graduated the program with honors and achieved Certification in Canine Body Language Interpretation and Canine Effleurage. The massage method of effleurage is a valuable tool in working with aggression and anxiety. It also makes a great reward for a relaxed state of mind.
Helping dogs and owners live in balance is the most rewarding thing I've ever done. I look forward to working with you!
