Growing up with pet dogs in the family his entire life, Stephen has always had a connection with dogs. In 2013 he was given the opportunity to work for a K-9 Academy, where he learned the basics of dog training and began growing his skill set. The clientele that he has worked with varies from basic obedience and behavior rehabilitation. Witnessing dogs and their behaviors that could not be corrected by purely positive reinforcement he began to expand his education and learn dog training methods from all aspects. That search culminated in joining the Fido Fidelis Dog Training team. This new approach has allowed him to work with and improve more lives for dogs and their families.  His training philosophy is “Everything starts with a solid foundation with the basics.”
