APPROACH TO TRAINING
Our goal is to provide a training approach that creates a well-mannered, stable, and enjoyable companion. We focus on providing training and implementing routines that create sustainable behavioral change that extends beyond just the training setting. We work with you to make sure that the results we achieve during training are something you can continue to expect from your dog.
All training clients begin with sessions at our Training Center at 1725 Williston Road in South Burlington. In cases where behavior is specific to environments, your trainer will work you through the basics in a controlled setting before moving subsequent training sessions to the relevant locations. Mileage charges apply outside of Burlington.

Ross is a professional and compassionate dog trainer who helped us focus on specific things we could do to improve our relationship with our energetic pup. Rather than impose a one size fits all approach, Ross spent considerable time assessing our pup’s particular traits and motivations. Ross then gave us the guidance and tools to be able to improve upon daily walks, to provide a quiet space within the home and how to effectively socialize our pup. We’ll continue to consult with Ross and Play Dog Play at pack walks and would highly recommend the one on one lessons for anyone wanting a well balanced family dog. Thank you, Ross!
Ross has had an affinity for animals for as long as he can remember. Whether it was a hamster, salamander, cat or canine, he can remember growing up with a curiosity for creatures. Ross began working with dogs at a local animal hospital where he found that he was interested in learning more about canine behavior. After moving to the Burlington area in 2013, Ross joined the Play Dog Play staff and began exploring the world of dog training shortly thereafter. Outside of work, Ross enjoys watching and playing sports, listening to music and spending time with his family.
Ross currently generates the content for the training programs, conducts training sessions, and provides support to the daycare staff. He is a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals and has completed Tyler Muto's Domanship Through the Feel, Problem Solving, and Mastering the Remote Collar workshops, Heather Beck's 3D Workshop: Dealing with Difficult Dogs, and has graduated from Robin MacFarlane's E-cademy.
