Dog trainers & behaviorists

TAB SHAMSI

Tab has been a dog fanatic for as long as he can remember. His first job was as a dog walker. Later, an impule purchase of a book on dog training at a local pet store led to changing his major in university to psychology and bringing home a 9 week old long-haired German Shepherd puppy he called Solea.

Armed with the information that he'd acquired through his reading, he found training Solea to be remarkably straightforward. The difficulty he found was in separating good information from bad information. And it was that discovery that later led to the work he’s done as an advocate for compassionate training.

To illustrate his approach to dog training, he created his first YouTube video – originally intended for distribution among family and friends. Over the next few years Tab refined his understanding of dog training as he worked with a large number of people and their dogs, and began to truly appreciate the uniqueness as well as the commonality between dogs in their abilities to learn. The premise of the training style that he developed was to create very adaptable tools and solutions that would ultimately work for all dogs, no matter how big or small.
