You have the advantage of working with a trainer who competes with her own dog. Olga knows about aggression, natural drives and impulse control. The difference between a competitor and just a pet trainer of dogs is the connection and depth of a relationship between the trainer and the dog without food, toys or leashes... Often your dog's distractive behavior, leash reactivity or aggression are the product of misunderstanding and lack of impulse control and inability to constructively channel.
Working dogs have strong instincts, tons of energy and are high strong. It takes skill and knowledge and a balanced approach to work with them and to channel them for amazing results. Most local trainers are only using the reward based training, which is only one of the many aspects of balanced training tools Olga has in her arsenal for each dog.
Olga Baram has been fascinated by dog training since she is 5!!! This makes it decades of learning and studying and always challenging herself to get even better. She owned and trained a poodle mix, a Rough Collie, 3 Belgian Sheepdogs and is now competing with her young Belgian Malinois.
Olga's passion about dogs made her sponge and soak anything and everything she could come across. Including AKC Conformation, Competitive Obedience and Agility.
She has been involved in IGP (Schutzhund) since 1995. It is a highly demanding complex and competitive working dog sport involving 3 disciplines at once - Tracking, Obedience and Protection. All being judged on the relationship of the handler and the dog team. It requires precise performance on the dog's part in high state of arousal while being in total control of the handler. This sport brings out the best in the dogs and challenges the handlers to always evolve as trainers. It is addictive and fun!!!
Olga never stops learning and bettering her skills. She is currently preparing to compete at the National competition this to hopefully qualify to represent USA next year at the World Championship with her young Belgian Malinois Bravo.
She has been attending lots of seminars and trains with top trainers in the USA and Europe. She is one of the very few local trainers who compete in protection sports on a high level.
Olga is the only CCAS (Certified Canine Athlete Specialist) on Long Island at this time. She is an expert in Canine Fitness. She successfully combines the physical and mental wellness from fitness with her training programs. This helps take training to another level enhancing confidence, helping the dogs learn how to relax and overcome fears while engaging their bodies and minds and learning to avoid injuries when running and playing.
Clips of our students DURING learning. These are done on Day 3, Day 7, Day 10 and Day 16. They have different faces and we worked on different issues, but one thing is always in common - THEY ALL HAVE CLEAR RULES AND THEY LIKE IT. Watch out for all the wagging tails😊!
