Why Bravo?


Dog training is currently an unregulated industry. Literally anyone can call themselves a dog trainer. Our credentials set up apart: All of Bravo!Pup’s trainers are graduates, or are current students of,  The Academy of Dog Trainers, the undisputed world leader in advanced education in dog training and behavior, commonly referred to as “The Harvard of Dog Training.”

You can rest assured we use only modern, science-based humane training methods for an unrivaled training experience.

Thank you, Holden! We have learned so much and it's really made a difference in what we feel like we can do with Billie in our house and out in the world. She's much happier and we're happier too! Thank you so much.

Thank you soooooo much for the wonderful training. We leaned a lot! It covered many things that we were wondering what to do. I really like the positive way of training. Thank you so much!
PUP1 and PUP2 Student
Thanks again for being the remarkable teacher you are! I have learned so much from you both: Watching your masterful skills with individual dogs, and practicing all your suggestions. It's been a true pleasure to be in your class. I will miss your entertaining, highly intuitive self. Kirby and I love you!

Live Remote Instruction

Our Live Remote instruction uses the zoom platform to teach live, not pre-recorded, classes. This is the perfect way to benefit from group training for those dogs that are not yet ready for in-person classes. 

Your highly educated and experienced instructor Holden Svirsky, CTC, CSAT, is a graduate of ‘The Academy for Dog Trainers’ and has developed these classes specifically for remote learning.
