In over 38 years of instructing, training, and working dogs and handlers, I have come to realize one thing. There is no shortcut when it comes to the art of dog training. I have had many clients who have enrolled in other schools only to find that all they were interested in was the almighty dollar. These schools brag about how nice their recreation room is or how much money the student can make. They forget that the most important part of the student's class is learning techniques that will insure that no matter what breed of dog they are training, no matter what temperament they are dealing with, they will be successful.

At K-9 Services Unlimited / Piazza's Professional Dog Training School, I will personally see to it that every student who enrolls in my Instructors course will have the knowledge and skills necessary to become a professional dog trainer. 



Obedience Instructor

At my school, you can be assured you are getting the best instruction anywhere in the entire Northeast. I have many years of experience. My course includes how to temperament test puppies and dogs. Using proper voice inflection, how to read a dogs body language, training the dogs through drives and instincts. When and how to correct a dog for bad behavior. How to properly use training tools ie. Choke chains, pinch collars, electronic collars, haltie's, etc... You will learn what I call REAL World Dog Training. In other words, we do not use gimmicks or tricks to teach our clients. The knowledge we have obtained over 35 years of training dogs is passed on to our students. We make sure you are ready to train all breeds and temperaments of dogs. Most of all we teach you to treat clients with dignity and respect. Remember, this is a course for people wanting to learn the art of dog training. 16 week program. We can work with whatever work schedule you have. $6,250


Instructor Courses

Learn to Track

Tracking in the real world means finding the person or persons as fast as possible. Unlike Schutzhund, tracking to find a missing person or for Police work is much different. In Schutzhund, the dog is taught a foot step to foot step track. The dog must keep his nose to the ground and stay exactly on all turns to earn a high score. This slows the dog dramatically. This is where I believe that a dog who must find a person in a quick manner should be taught Tracking in the REAL WORLD! In this course, you will learn the skills necessary to start and finish a dog to find a person or persons by not only using ground disturbance but also contact scent, airborne scent, and more. This course will bring you through the very beginnings of tracking dogs to the end. Remember, finding a missing person is not a game. Learn to track in the real world, not just for points. 3 hours per training session 10 week program $5,150
