Are you local to Phoenix-AZ and in need of training help? 

There is more to training than obedience and obeying commands. Take the lead with love and know-how as you learn to truly unleash your dog's potential.

I offer relationship-based training, which fosters trust and creates an emotionally positive experience for both you and your dog in the comfort of your own home.

You'll learn to see your dog's behavior from a body, mind, and spirit perspective. Together we'll find the issues that might be standing in the way of your dog's success, and I'll teach you about your dog's needs, and what he or she is trying to tell you that you might not be aware of.

I'll teach you to recognize characteristics specific to your dog’s breed and how to enhance his or her natural skills and tendencies. I’m really excited to show you your dog’s potential! I enjoy seeing the healthy relationships that are built through Holistic Dog Training.


I also enjoy the rewarding lick I get when I'm done with the dog's rehabilitation and when they finally feel safe, know their job, and feel the new bond you create with them during the training process.

 I'm often called in for cases that others can't handle, the rough ones where the dog might be put down or surrendered because of reactive or aggressive behavior. I am honored to be part of the path of healing for these dogs and their owners. Everyone benefits.

Roman, years ago when you came to help us with Gunner, you said our dogs come into our lives for a reason. He taught my daughter to have confidence ...by teaching her how to train Gunner. You are a great trainer.!

As a Certified Reiki Master and Crystal Healing therapist, I can sense the energy shift within the family system during the training process. It's my mission to help people understand that dogs are here to support our emotional and spiritual path and are not here to "serve" us. We can enjoy a mutually beneficial relationship that is healing for both human and dog by creating a team environment where everyone is happy and gets what they need.

My training methods are force-free, positive, and emotionally supportive. My worldwide proven science-based dog training methods not only empower you to handle your dog with more confidence, but I also provide the tools necessary for you to train any dog you have in the future.

With one of the highest rehabilitation success rates in the country, I offer the best and fastest results for your dog.

I see clients in the Phoenix Metro area, including Paradise ValleyScottsdale, TempeMesa, Peoria, and Glendale, and provide dog training and behavior modification for dogs with any type of problems.

We recently adopted a very fearful dog from a local shelter and we knew we would need help with him before we even took him home. I was referred to a dog trainer who insisted that our little guy needed to be “broken like a wild horse” and his training methods left me wary of other trainers to say the least. Next up, I found Roman. His approach is kind and incredibly effective. I was so relieved to hear that I didn’t have to be my dog’s “pack leader” or employ methods that just didn’t feel right. Tucker progresses at his own rate and I am able to watch him make marked progress every time we work with him. Roman understands my dog and what he needs and adjusts his approach to get the best out of him. He is simply amazing and I would absolutely never use another dog trainer! Hire Roman and I promise you, you will not be disappointed. He will change the way you think about your dog and help you understand him/her in ways you never realized were possible.

Training Bundles

In Home Training Bundle Phoenix

This online package is designed for New Dog Parents with puppies or dogs with moderate behavior issues ( excluding aggressive behavior toward humans), and is the most popular package. It ’s tailored to your dog's unique needs and your training goals. 

If you have a human aggressive dog or a dog with serious emotional or physical trauma, I suggest the premium package instead of this one, which includes a systemic evaluation. I specialize in complex behavior issues and have created a package specifically for “problem” dogs. 

Problems this package can address:        
Complex housebreaking ("potty training")         
Poor socialization         
A difficulty with visitors/jumping (not for human aggressive dogs)         
Leash pulling and reactivity         
Barking         
Destructive chewing/digging         
Bad house manners         
Isolation distress
Separation anxiety        
Fear of noises, situations, people, or events         
Resource guarding/location guarding/person guarding. Guarding refers to dogs who are possessive and aggressive when you approach them while they are eating, chewing a bone or toy, on the furniture, or near a particular person, provided the dog has never bitten anyone.*     Preparing your dog for a baby's arrival         
Preparing your dog for a new pet's arrival         
Helping your dog acclimate to a new baby or pet after it has already arrived. 

What you get:

  • 5 In-home training sessions 45 minutes that includes, evaluation and training
  • 2 “laser” sessions. These are roughly 20-minute online troubleshooting sessions that can be used for a specific behavior that needs to be addressed immediately. An example would be a behavior that the dog wouldn’t normally show when I’m there, like barking at the garbage man. 
  • Personalized training instructions 
  • Text troubleshooting support (during business hours 8am-4pm) 
  • A better relationship with your dog
  • Skills you can use with every dog in your life. 

$0,54/mile additional fee may apply for out of city limits appointments.

I’m now offering a payment plan for this package. Contact me for further information regarding paying in installments. 

TERMS:
> Money back guarantee if you don't see progress after the first session.
> Warranty: sessions can be added if needed @ $97/session + $0,54/mile round trip  
> No Refund of remaining sessions after booking the second session.

Every dog parent has unique needs. We narrow down what the best options for you are based on your level of experience; from dog breed, temperament, age, activity level, and if you are a multi-dog home or have other pets, like cats, bunnies, etc. I check your living space for dog friendliness, safety, and help you make a list for what you might need. I also will go over the costs for owning a dog depending on size and breed, so you can create a budget.

  • Your dog’s first 48 hours; decompression and integrating into the family safely and calmly
  • Basic nutritional information
  • Creating a relationship using unique exercises that will make your dog WANT to follow commands instead of forcing or shaming him into it.
  • Leash work and basic commands like sit, down, etc.

2 “Emergency” Online Sessions ($57 per session if bought separately)

We can set these up as needed for one problem=one solution. An example would be if your dog is having problems greeting people and you want to have a party, I can walk you through what to do virtually in real time. I use FaceTime, Facebook video, Skype, or Hangouts to help you with the issue, so that I don’t “take over” the process. These appointments are mentoring sessions that are used after your four training sessions.
