Mark Spivak, CPT’s owner, came to our house to work with our dog Junior, a stray American Eskimo Dog with virtually no training. Mark was courteous, professional, and effective. He never raised his voice or did anything to make me uncomfortable with him and Junior and our other dog, CoCo. I was unsure about exactly how I wanted Junior to improve; Mark quickly formulated a methodology for Junior (and CoCo), patiently demonstrated how to implement it, and politely critiqued my efforts. I have read many dog training books and have worked with other trainers, with middling results. Mark’s methods worked immediately, with no roughness or unpleasantness. I recommend CPT unreservedly.
