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

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 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 is a VERY BIG DEAL.

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.

And these are very unique and special games 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.

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

I believe in showing an
abundance of 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, Doberman, 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.

Instead of just suppressing these behaviors and making an unhappy and often time neurotic dog, I will tap into their instincts and control and guide them.

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

I take these things that are the most naturally rewording 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 reword.

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.

This is what all dog training should strive to become.

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

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 of even forced.

And let's be clear about this.

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… Right?

Well, that's manipulation in my book.

Wouldn't it be better to get them doing things with you simply because they love doing those things and being with you?
