My name is Anthony De Marinis, a Long Island based certified behavior consultant and dog trainer.
This blog is a place for my stories, observations and my journey with dogs. I named this blog after my dog Journey, because he is taking me on a journey. He has introduced me to the world of sheep herding, agility, working and sport dogs, applied ethology and much more.
Journey was named after my dog Gerber, who took me on a journey. Gerber was a very special dog who had serious behavior issues. He is the reason I now specialize in working with dogs who display aggressive behavior and other serious behavior issues.
Furthermore, I have named this blog, My Journey With Dogs, because I truly value this current journey that I am on, on so many levels. Our dogs can be our teachers if we allow them to be and if we listen to all they are saying. My journey with dogs has brought me to so many places, it has allowed me to meet so many amazing (and interesting) dogs, as well as people.
My journey with dogs is a continuous story and adventure that continues to open new doors and opportunities. It is a continued journey of learning and growth. Finally, this blog is a journey of all the things I learn from the dogs and the families that have, and continue to have an impact on my life. I look forward to sharing my journey with dogs.
