Puppy Training

Puppy Training

Our puppy training includes obedience and potty. We also help your puppy curb any negative or annoying behaviors so they will not get worse.

We help your puppy learn manners and how to understand what you want from them. Our training will lead to a long, happy, well balanced life for your puppy.

Your puppy will learn in a positive way from loving and encouraging hands!
Obedience + Behavior Training For Dogs

Obedience & Behavior

We work with all levels of obedience. From on leash work to off leash, your dog will learn how to understand your commands and to follow instructions every time. Our behavior modification is second to none! You will see positive dog training results right from the first class!

 The goal is better communication between you and your dog. If your dog understands what you want, they will happily and eagerly follow your instructions. The training is fun for the owners and the dogs!
Aggression Training

Aggression

When your dog shows signs of aggression towards humans or other dogs, there is nothing more frustrating and scary.

This is our specialty. We have rehabilitated more aggression cases than any other trainer in South Florida. We have often had to take over where other trainers have not been able to succeed. We have saved dogs from being euthanized or from ending up in a shelter.

If aggression is your dog's issue, we are the trainers for you!

Meet Richard

I’m Richard Heinz, a Master Dog Trainer and Dog Behavior expert. I am known as the Miami Dog Whisperer and I love dogs! I get so excited every time a new program starts and I get to meet a dog and their owners. I give 100% to every session and enjoy watching the dog evolve and grow.

What Makes Me Different

I have been a professional dog trainer for over 20 years and have trained over 1,000 dogs. I have used and perfected all dog training methods, and train your dog with the best techniques known in the training world. I will train your dog one-on-one, either at home or via a Skype session, to get fast and effective results.

Puppy Training

Obedience Training

Dogs can start learning obedience commands like “come”, “sit”, “down”, and more at an early age. Watch this teaser video to see how the Heinz Method of Dog Training works for puppies!
See the results of our obedience training! Off-leash obedience is an advanced level of obedience. When trained at this level, you’ll find your dog is completely controllable when off leash, even in crowded environments and in situations where they might encounter other animals.

Aggression

Protection / Guard Dog Training

Some dogs can be dangerous to be around. Diesel, an extremely aggressive doberman, appears to be a big bully. He’s a face-hunter who has bit his owner’s family multiple times. Diesel visited multiples trainers as well as a behaviorist before coming to Richard Heinz for aggression training. After just one week of training, Diesel has made great strides.
What would happen if you were under threat, trying to move away from danger, and you happened to fall and hurt yourself? Ideally, your dog would hold his position and not get frantic because you hit the floor. This critical skill may seem simple, but in reality, there’s many factors that make this a tricky situation. Your dog could even nip at you if not properly trained. Watch how Rocco, a protection dog, reacts to this scenario.

Richard Has Been A Life-Saver For Us & Our Dog Huw.

Huw is a corgi with anxiety-based aggression. We had tried working with all kinds of behaviorists to address his people-aggression but had seen little progress which meant that Huw's world was getting smaller and smaller as we couldn't easily take him out in public and couldn't take him to dog-parks and dogie day care. Rick has helped us address these issues and when it comes to dealing with strangers Huw is a different dog and just seems so much happier. We are just a couple of sessions in but the difference is already profound and we are looking forward to the future where we can take Huw to all kinds of places and have all the fun with other dogs which he craves and misses. I wish we had found Richard and the Miami dog whisperer earlier and heartily recommend him.

Richard Has A Great Understanding Of The Way A Dog Thinks.

...I saw this after one visit. He worked with each of our dogs in feeling of us... Got them to do the desired behaviors, then handed them of to us. Loose leash walking in 15 minutes. Side note: Our dogs are both 4 years old. I would definitely recommend him!

Where Do I Begin?!

...We had 4 trainers previously for our two dogs (Jack and Diane). Nothing worked! Richard made a difference in just one class. It is like a miracle. We are so happy. The training is super fast and easy. My dogs were happy to learn and loved Richard. The customer service we received was excellent. From Richard and his staff. I wish we had hired Richard sooner, but we are so happy we did. I highly recommend his services. He never left a class without making sure we understood, and we were happy. Richard is not only a true dog training master and professional, but always has a great personality and the classes are truly enjoyable. . We have since recommended Richard to our family and friends and have gotten excellent reviews from them, which makes us feel good. We are  in the process of getting a new  puppy and we already contacted Richard to help us from the beginning. We can't wait!

…Thanks to Richard’s Training, We Travel With Our Pup Everywhere…

Richard is a great trainer and a genuinely good person. I have a 2 year old Golden Retriever , Ellie. Richard helped our  family train and certify Ellie as a Service Dog for my son who has Autism. Ellie has truly changed my son's life and my family will be forever grateful to Richard for all the time and effort he put into our case. My son was non-verbal and Ellie has truly brought him out.. Richard has so much patience and he never left without making sure that we were all understanding and had learned the days lessons.  Ellie is incredible. Thanks to Richard's training we travel with Ellie everywhere and she is even better behaved than some humans! Our family recommends Richard Heinz as your trainer for anything you may need related to dog training. He, not only does it all, but he cares and does it all with dedication and professionalism.

Richard Is Like A Magician!

...Our dogs started to behave soooo much better after the first class! We learned how to teach them what we want and what expect from them. We're still doing classes, but the results so far are amazing! :)
