Tim's career began in Los Angeles, CA. while in pursuit of his lifelong passion of being a songwriter and musician. To supplement income Tim began sitting and walking dogs, eventually linking up with a local rescue organization and taking on a foster dog who had severe behavioral issues. This proved to be pivotal in his journey as a dog lover and human and was the turning point in going from struggling artist trying to "make it," to inspired dog lover destined to train dogs.
Tim has since gone on to work in both LA and NY, and now spends his days training dogs in both the shelter/rescue environment and private sector. His ultimate goal as a dog trainer is to provide humans the insight they need into dog behavior and tendencies in order to see how they might be unconsciously impacting their dogs behavior, while also providing the necessary foundational knowledge of canine behavior in a simple and compassionate approach towards both humans and dogs alike. He believes that the ultimate form of communication is through empathy, understanding and awareness for all species, and this translates to his training philosophy.
Understanding the importance of staying dedicated to learning throughout his career, Tim is consistently enrolled in courses and webinars in order to stay on top of the rapidly evolving business known as dog training. In 2023 he will be studying to become a certified Companion Animal Doula in order to assist people faced with the difficult challenge of saying goodbye to their canine companion.
Tim has also earned his CPDT-KA under the nationally recognized Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers.
Tim is a published author, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu black belt and instructor, multi-instrumentalist, script writer, songwriter and accomplished public speaker on a quest to bring people together through their common oneness and love for the canine species.
