Success Stories

Josh and I were both feeling confused which led to Josh having challenges with recall and listening to my directions. I was struggling with my own confidence and emotions. When we met Saro and was introduced to his training program I felt a great sense of relief.
And Josh
We instantly signed up for Saro’s training course– no tricks, no treats, no force, hand signals along with gentle commands – simply offering praise as a reward.
with Qantas and Levi
We learned a lot, but more importantly, we knew that Saro has the tools, mindset and in-depth knowledge required to teach dog owners how to train their dog in a gentle and humane way.

Why dog training

without the use of treats or food?

Science has discovered that dogs respond the most to the hand that feeds the dog and not the food. This changes the dog training concept and guides you to train your dog without the use of treats or food, so you can get the most amazing results.

I help YOU  to gain control of your dogs both indoors and outdoors using a proven dog training method without the use of treats, food, aversive tools, or domination so that you can enjoy your dog at all times with confidence while having fun training your dog using play & praise as a reward.


Can kids train the dogs?

Although my training system is so simple that even kids can use it, we suggest you let adults start the training and then teach the kids the methods so you can all develop consistent results.

Why not to use treats to train my dog?

Treats or food can cause development of heath issues in your dog and makes your dog and you depend on them for simple tasks and in the future. It also distracts your dog from focusing on YOU!

Are you a certified dog trainer?

I am a certified expert family pet dog trainer and I received my dog trainer certification from “The College of Canine Behavioural Science”. I am also a member of the “Canadian Association of Professional Pet Dog Trainers”.

What tools do i need to use to train my dog?

You don’t need to use tools or even depend on tools. You can offer the best reward for your dog by praising him/her verbally and physically or you can play with your dog using a favourite toy. 

How long does it take to train my dog?

Realistically, from the day that you start to train your dog, expect about three to six months to see results.

What if my dog is not "play or praise" motivated and responds to food only?

By using my simple training method and understanding my philosophy, your dog will have no choice but to listen to you without being dependant on food.
