Jim LaClair's Dog Friendly Dog Training - Sarasota, Florida

I learned the craft of dog training by doing an intensive, one year apprenticeship with a well-known and respected Los Angeles dog trainer. I then graduated with honors and earned a Counseling Certificate from the San Francisco SPCA Academy for Dog Trainers run by Jean Donaldson.

Jim and the ClassI was one of the first professional trainers to pass the newly established accreditation exam given by the Certification Council for Pet Dog Trainers. I am one of only a very small number of trainers who can claim to be "certified."

I am a professional member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT), which is the world's largest and most prestigious organization of dog trainers. The APDT promotes enlightened, positive training methods and the continuing education of its members.

I really enjoy helping people and their dogs. My clients are often amazed at how quickly I get their dogs headed in the right direction. It may look like magic, but the skill is simply experience based on scientifically proven learning theory and behavior modification techniques.

I am a magna cum laude graduate of Duke University. After many successful years of dog training in Los Angeles, I have returned to my hometown. My family and I now live in Sarasota, Florida with our Australian Shepard, Janie.
