Building Trust, Respect, and Desire

Homeskooling 4 Dogs provides behavioral consultation services and private in-home dog training.


Glenn Massie is a Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA) who has worked with all types of behavioral issues, and specializes in working with challenging dogs.  Glenn's method of training is based on the positive foundation of building trust, respect, and desire. Training should be a positive experience, not punishing. Glenn trains dogs using a martingale collar, or a standard buckle collar. No type of electronic collar "training aid" (e-collar), or any type of choke chain, prong or pinch collar of any type are ever  used. These "tools" are not necessary to train a dog.

All training is designed to be simple enough for your dog to understand. Understanding dogs and applying well-reasoned methods is as much of an art as it is a science.

For training to be the most effective a dog must trust, respect, and desire to be with you. Glenn trains people to be their dog's leader and best friend, so that the dog's desire is the giver not just the gift. 

Homeskooling 4 Dogs works to improve your dog's behavior so he or she can get ahead in life. Or at least be better behaved and enjoy a few more freedoms.

The foundation for all good training is based on a good relationship. Leadership is about relationship as much as it is about position. You do not need to establish an authoritarian relationship to control your dog; you only need to be a respected leader. Dogs much like children need an authority figure that is confident, loving, patient, kind, and self-controlled

Heaven goes by favor; if it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.       Mark Twain

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-- not by works, so that no one can boast.     Ephesians 2: 8-9  NIV

The wolf will live with the lamb, the leopard will lie down with the goat, the calf and  the lion and the yearling together; and a little child will lead them. ISAIAH 11:16 NIV
