A: There is no name for it. First we use common sense behavior training through playing games and earning respect/loving attention. Then we combine an ancient art form, of training working dogs, using patients, practicality and physics. We wait for it, Play for it, and then show the proof of it. We use all others styles as well but most important, we will listen to your dog and find out how they prefer to be taught.
Q: Do you use Positive Re-enforcement?
Never on dogs under a year old! You do not want to "enforce" much when a puppy just needs to grow up, have fun and learn how to be well behaved! You wouldn't hold a bottle in front of a baby and ask them to go in the toilet first! Same thing applies for puppies. We do use positive re-enforcement for dogs of age. We also feel that what ever style used, the end goal, must always be, to simply use our voice and body language to communicate our desires. _First we bond with the dog, we work on earning your dogs attention, and then we teach them in an environment of love and mutual respect. We use food, but feel food should be more freely given when a good behavior is present, and not used as leverage.

Drew is AMAZING! My rescue dog Copper was suffering from extreme separation anxiety when I found his training ad online. I was desperate for help as I was getting kicked out of my apartment because Copper howled when alone and he even tried to hurt himself by jumping out of a second story window in order to be w/people! I had tried everything from herbal remedies to bark collars and other trainers. NOTHING worked until I met Drew. The second Drew walked into my apartment I knew he was something special. I have a dog and two persian cats and they surrounded him, sat down and looked up at him. I exclaimed “who are you the Animal Whisperer!?!?” I was floored and never saw my animals so obedient. Anyway, within a one hour training session with Drew, I saw improvements in Copper’s behavior and within a few sessions both Copper and I (yes..I was the problem too!) had learned the skills to lessen his anxiety. It’s now 5 years later and things are still going really well Call Drew for your training needs…you are NOT going to find anybody better!!!

"This offer is the absolute best deal I've bought through any online deal. Danielle and Drew were outstanding with my dog, arrived on time and spent more time then scheduled. To have a dog trainer come into your home and go over the training program in your dogs own setting was a huge advantage. They took the time to really get to know Charley and he was very comfortable with them. Received an email outlining a training schedule for what they covered on the lesson. Overall a wonderful experience would highly recommend them for your pet."

"Drew is great, he is very intuitive with dogs. My German Shepard, who is usually very reserved with strangers, was licking his face in the first half-hour of meeting him. "
We had our first training session for our two dogs about 3 weeks ago, and the tips we were given have made a huge impact on one dog. The other still has some work to do, but he's learning as we go. We still have two more in home sessions, and we look forward to seeing Drew again. So far, we are very happy with his methods of training and his explanations about why our dogs are behaving how they are. Putting his methods into practice while teaching us how to do them have been very helpful in understanding the full picture.
We have benefited greatly from the training/behavior modification we have done so far. Drew especially helped our son in learning to handle a specific situation that my son asked for help on. We have a very dominant dog and he is behaving better with just two training sessions. I know I needed "training" and Drew has been patient in helping me to understand. Give him a try!

"Our first training session with Blessed Dog exceeded our expectations on every level. Drew and his assistant Danielle were a force to be reckoned with. Our dogs, Molly Pearl and Harlo Mae, two dachshunds, fell in love with them shortly after they started to work their magic.
Drew, the owner and tour de force, presents the challenge of training with a spiritual and gentle philosophy, emphasizing the role of leadership,patience, positive rewards, play, and acknowledgement by praise and treats to achieve a successful training experience. He believes that the walk holds the key to achieving successful outcomes. While training, he suggests that the training really blossoms while taking two short walks. He also emphasizes that too much repetition at once is counterproductive. As humans, we only like to be told once, dogs many need a few repetitions, but no need to overdo it.
Our two hour session was miraculous. While Danielle took notes, Drew interacted with our dogs both together and separately, and led us step-by step addressing the issues we wanted help with. Both my husband and I learned quickly from Drew's modeling and our dogs responded positively in a very short time. We walked each dog separately, first he modeled, them we took the reins. We were amazed at how much better our dogs responded when we employed Drew's philosophy.
The true test was this morning's walk. Both Molly Pearl and Harlo Mae were much calmer, very responsive and we were successful.
If you're dogs are in charge, call on Drew and Blessed Dog to make you the leader of the pack!
Thanks Drew, Danielle, Blessed Dog and livingsocial."
