You Love Your Dog 
That's why choosing the right dog trainer is a VERY BIG DEAL.  Dog trainers do not have to be certified.  In fact, anyone can legally call themselves a professional dog trainer.  Here's how to make the right choice... 

Matt Welch Is The ONLY Dog Trainer In South Florida Certified By 2X IGP World Champion Ivan Balabanov

You’re probably checking me out because you have a problem with your dog.

Maybe pulling on the leash and going crazy when they see other dogs, people, cats, squirrels etc.

Chasing cars, digging holes or constantly barking.

Jumping on people or maybe wanting to eat the mailman.

Destroying things in the house like chewing the walls, couch etc.

Don’t come when called.  

Or don’t listen to you… period.  

Maybe even aggression.

Whatever it is… we’ll get to all that in just a moment.

First I want to tell you why you should listen to me.

The first reason is I am actually
a certified dog trainer.

And I am not just certified by some random course.  

I am certified by arguably the best dog trainer in the word, Ivan Balabanov.

Ivan is a 16X national and 2X world IGP champion.

Not only am I the first and ONLY trainer certified by Ivan in South Florida, I have learned from him… IN PERSON… since 2015.

I have spent HUNDREDS of hours with him at his 10 acre dog training facility.

Ivan has discovered and mastered revolutionary dog training concepts that are only known and understood by a very small handful of trainers in the world.

If you have any questions about my ability to train dogs and deal with serious behavior issues like aggression, you can contact Ivan and ask him about me. 

The best way to “check up on me” is by emailing him here:

And here is his website:

I’m saying all this
because who you choose 
to train your dog

Your dog is a member of your family.

I’m sure you love your dog more than words can describe.

I know I love my dogs like that.  And I completely understand.

Dogs are my life and I will do anything for them.

This is why you should NEVER hire a trainer unless you are 100% certain they will always love your dog and do what’s best for them.

And they will work with them in a way that always puts the emotions of the dog first.

You see, it’s easy to get a dog to do things.

Any trainer with half a clue can make dogs do things.

What’s unique is having the ability to do it in a way that the dog absolutely loves doing these things with you and for you.

What’s most important is how your dog feels while being trained and doing things with you.

That’s why the method I use trains directly through playing games.

But please understand this...

These are not just any games.

Many trainers now claim to, "train with play" and with games.

It's actually become a very common buzzword in dog training.

Make no mistake about it - These are very unique and special games (invented and developed by Ivan Balabanov) that tap into your dogs genetics and builds their confidence as they learn vital skills and rock-solid real world obedience.

That’s why I can get dogs to listen… no matter what.

And the dogs LOVE
what they are doing

If you watch my videos, you will see I have countless examples of this.

Talk is cheap.  

It is far to easy these days to put on a smoke and mirror show on social media.

I believe in showing an overwhelming
abundance of REAL proof.

That’s why I show some of the worst, craziest and aggressive dogs no one could control, now off leash living their best lives while being 100% under control.

I show Pit Bulls, Malinois, German Shepherds, Doodles, Huskies, Malamutes, Chihuahua, Yorkies, Poodles, Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, Afghan, Dobermans, Akitas and on and you.  

Most important… they are not just under control… they are extremely HAPPY and having the best time of their life.

Most people don’t own dogs as bad as the ones I own, have trained for owners and I show on some of these videos.  Especially the really aggressive ones.

But, if I can do what I have done with these “devil dogs,” imagine what I can do with yours.

The bottom line is: most dogs are easy for me. 

But here’s the part most
trainers get wrong.

They train the dog for them.

So, the dog looks great with them.

But it falls apart for the owner.

In the end, if the dog is not under control and happy for YOU… this is all worthless.

That’s why I make sure everything I do
is based on training the dog for YOU.

The first thing I do is evaluate the dog and find out what makes them tick.

What genetics they have that makes them love to do certain things and not like or hate to do others.

Some of these instincts are seen as bad behavior.

Like excessive barking, chasing prey, chasing cars, digging holes etc.

In reality, these "bad behaviors" are just natural instincts the dog is born with and actually need to come out.

That's why instead of just suppressing these behaviors and making an unhappy and often times neurotic dog, I will tap into their instincts and...

Control And Guide Them

I will focus and funnel them into constructive things like the special games we play.

I take these things that are the most naturally rewarding for your dogs and attach them to things you do with your dog.

When this happens, the things you do with your dog become self-reinforcing.
In other words, the dog absolutely loves to do these things with you and there is no need for external reinforcers like food.

The activity you are doing with your dog is the reward.

This also gives your dog a purpose in life.  

And that purpose is something you and your dog share.

If you only take ONE THING away from reading this, please let it be this...

Life without a purpose (for you or your dog) is not only frustrating... it is meaningless.

If you do not have a purpose, just getting out of bed in the morning can be a very daunting task.

You may have experienced that horrible feeling when the alarm clock goes off early in the morning. 

I know I used use, before I found my purpose.

Anyway, a lot of dog trainer say to give your dog a "job."

Well, how do you like your "job?"

If you are like most, you hate it.

Unless you are doing something you love that gives your life a clear PURPOSE.

Purpose is the key

That's why we must give you dog a PURPOSE.

Even better... we must give you and your dog a PURPOSE TOGETHER.

This will not only change your dogs live, it will change yours.

I can't give you a job that you love and gives your live a wonderful purpose.  But I absolutely can do that for your dog.  

And best of all, I can give YOU that shared purpose with your dog.

Make no mistake about it - this is not just about your dog.  This will change your life, too.

This is the ultimate
in dog training.

And the ultimate in relationship with your dog.

Your dog doing things with you… and listening to you… because they 100% love doing that more than anything else in the world... is so special.

You and your dog doing things TOGETHER that fulfills your shared PURPOSE is the closest thing to magic I know.

This is what all dog training and dog ownership should strive to become.

This is an amazing partnership
that is on another level

It really is a very different and unique approach that get results even when everything else has failed.  

And make no mistake about it...

It gets a very different
kind of results.

You end up with such a happy dog that loves doing things with you as opposed to being manipulated or even forced.

And let's be clear about this.

Because this is a very common misunderstanding in the dog training world.

Getting your dog to do something
for food is manipulation

They are doing something because they are hungry and want to eat.

If they don't do what you are asking, they don't get that piece of food or treat.


So if they don't do it, they don't eat. 

That's the way most trainers train.

Well, that is clearly manipulation.  And it is manipulation BY FORCE.  Just a different kind of force.

Wouldn't it be better to get them doing things with you simply because they love doing those things and being with you and it gave both of you an amazing purpose in life?
