Your Statesville, NC Dog Trainer

Matt is a lifelong dog lover and native of Australia.

At a young age, Matt was motivated to learn how to train dogs by his late Doberman, Viktor. After travelling to the United States to pursue a formal education at Highland Canine Training’s School for Dog Trainers, Matt decided to remain in order to train dogs professionally.

His career began as a police and military working dog trainer/instructor with a particular emphasis on detection and trailing. Matt has trained dogs for, and worked with, countless police and military units – both domestic and international.

Matt’s focus has now shifted to the training of pet dogs and their owners. He has an enthusiasm to help owners establish an unbreakable bond with their dog.

Obedience training and behavior modification are his new focal points and he has a passion to help pet dogs and their owners, in order to give both parties the most fulfilling lives possible.
