Roman Gottfried, thank you for the suggestion to teach them there is a line to not cross when we are in the kitchen. We adopted our foster dog and he sits behind that line when I am cooking, doing dishes, or getting the trash ready to take out. It is helpful to not have a 95lb assistant in the kitchen! Pic is of him sitting behind the line.
We are all learning our jobs, and how to properly interact with each other. Bruce is doing wonderfully with the kids, he's coming back when we call (most of the time lol), and learning that he can trust us. I have loved the online training sessions, I've been learning so much, and the approach that Roman takes, it's nice to have the dog listen without loud noises, scolding, or dominance training. Bruce is so much more comfortable, that he kept photobombing my daughter's back to school pictures!
Roman, we are SO lucky to have you on our 30,000 member strong Mastiff Lovers FB-Group!
And the online consulting, the Facebook #HolisticDogTraining...GENIUS! It's like you are closer than a phone call away! I always appreciate your insight & input!
About two months ago I was kind of desperate. I was walking my dogs only in the early hours, dreading meeting other dogs and having big problems to control them. I was on the verge of giving up as my body could not cope with the strength and energy it took to care for them. Right at that time I heard about Roman Gottfried offering online sessions for people who had trouble with their dogs. I grabbed the opportunity and never regretted it.
In a one hour setting I learned so much about my dogs, but mostly about myself, that with the tools Roman gave me I could start over again.
Romans approach 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.

Thank you Roman, you helped me online line with my Cane Corso Ceasar a long time ago. He was aggressive, runt of the litter and with your guidance taught me and my family, how to deal with him, force free and pain free. He is 9 years old now, he still respects us and we respect him and the breed.
I'm so happy to have found Roman. His gentle demeanor and patience helped me understand what I needed to do to make the circumstances better.
He has transformed my dog in a way that I never could without his program and training. He helps guide you through the training process to gain more understanding of dog behavior that in turn helps you gain more control and peace.
He's helped hundreds of dogs and owners, and thankful I found him.
***** Apollo absolutely responds to the training Roman showed us, but it does require us to engage with our dog too, not just the other way around. You can't be on your cell phone diagnosing your mother's email problems while walking/training your dog. We just walk the dog, pay attention, use the commands we were taught, and be nice to the dog. Roman is really good at what he does. We've been really amazed! Roman has also dog-sat for us many times and it has been a great experience. -Juliana S
We at Doc Holliday Pit BULL Rescue Support in AZ LOVE ROMAN! What an amazingly gifted, friendly, educated and generous man. Many canine behaviorists/trainers have "quirks" when it comes to dealing with people. Not Roman! This is what makes his online training so wonderful. Thank you for helping my dear elderly friend with her husky! I'm behind you 100% in all your endeavors. Thank you for being a gift to the animal kingdom, but also an amazing person! - Sharon Vasquez - Doc Holliday Pit Bull Rescue AZ
Roman is an amazing dog trainer. Our two dogs were stressing us out. Abby started escaping after we got Beryl. Beryl was barking almost constantly, I decided to rehome Beryl if therapy did not work.
He showed up at my house for a initial in home training session and within five minutes had my two hyper little dogs calmly sitting and looking at him.
What we learned in one session has been invaluable to us regarding training us to train the dogs.
