Hello, my name is Frederico Strange, I grew up in Atlanta Ga, and served 8 years in the United States Air Force (USAF) as a Military Working Dog Handler.
I am now servicing the Bakersfield, Lake Isabella, Wofford Heights and surrounding areas throughout Kern County.
While growing up I discovered I had an incredible bond with dogs. I started out at the age of 6 with my first dog. Was a Labrador/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix named Bella. I taught her how to sit, down and follow me everywhere I went.
While training dog within the USAF a few of the many things that I taught dogs was basic obedience, advanced obedience (off-leash), agility and scent tracking.
In 2007 when my enlistment was coming to a close I separated from the USAF and began the long venture of starting my own business.
I continued to train dog in Atlanta from 2007-2013 to keep myself knowledgeable and disciplined within my training skills.
In January of 2013 enrolled at Animal Behavior College to become a certified dog trainer and to acquire the knowledge of using more positive methods within my training program. After gaining the knowledge of positive training method from Animal Behavior College I consider myself a Balance dog trainer.
I graduated in the top of my class to become a certified dog trainer and along the way I received my pet CPR certification and meaning knowledge pet nutrition and effectively teaching group classes.
As part of my training I volunteered at Best Friends Animal Shelter in Mission Hills CA, which is a No kill animal shelter.
I would take dogs out for walks and spend quality time with them one on one, and give them time to run around and enjoy the outdoors.
As part of training I would observe how dogs interact and communicate with each other.My goal as the Owner of my own dog training business is to help dog owners bridge the communication gap with their beloved pet.
Through all my accomplishments and training I use a combination of positive reinforcement and negative punishment to transform your problematic dogs into model canines.
I will wrap this up by saying THANK YOU for reading this and giving me the opportunity of solving the complicated misunderstanding between your pet and yourself.
I have been training dogs for over 10 years now. I started in the United States Air Force as a K-9 Handler. I was very efficient and graduated at the top of my class in the MWD Handler Course. Since 2007 after separating for the USAF I have been actively training dogs of all breeds and temperaments.
In 2013, I graduated from Animal Behavior College from the Dog Obedience Instructors Course to become a Certified Dog Trainer.
On my journey since 2004 I have experience in teaching Scent Tracking, Protection Training and Guard dog training.
I use a more Balanced training Technique which means I use Positive training methods all the time except as a last resort for safety purposes.
