Mark with his dogs Tricky, Luna and Sadie

We offer dog training with Mark Bennett, CPDT-KA of Brooklyn's Finest Dog Training.

Mark is certified by the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers as well as the Animal Behavior College. He is a professional member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers, and he was a volunteer Dog Companion at the Brooklyn Animal Care & Control Center. He is also an AKC Puppy S.T.A.R. and Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. He is also certified in Pet First Aid and CPR. He has many years of experience working with all types, ages, breeds, and mixes of dogs. He is particularly skilled at dealing with rescue and adopted dogs.

Mark's approach is based on the latest research and uses non-violent rewards-based training methods. His niche specialty is dealing with difficult cases that other trainers may not want to work with. Mark is very familiar with issues specific to rescue animals - all three of his own dogs are rescues.

Group and individual sessions with Mark are now available at our dog daycare at 1581 DeKalb Avenue. From puppy fundamentals, to agility training, to leash aggression, Mark can meet your training needs and improve your relationship and communication with your dog.
