About: Best Buddy Dog Trainer LLC

The first step to training your dog is deciding what type of training you would like. Do you want a trainer that uses force OR intimidation when training your Best Buddy? What about prong collars or choke chains? Or would you like a trainer who uses motivation, confidence building exercises, treats, praise, and patience? 


Certified dog trainer Jeffrey Causby, ABCDT is a positive only dog trainer, teaching group puppy/adult classes and private in-home consultations. He does not use prong collars, e-collars, force, or pain. Jeff believes it is unnecessary to use these tools or anything like this to motivate or train your dog. He believes with timely reinforcement, daily exercise, and proper scheduling, you can turn any "Problem" Dog into the most well-behaved dog you have ever owned. If time is a factor for you, then Jeff's training schedule will not work for you. You will need to have extra time to put towards training when signing up.

About Jeff Causby

Hi, and welcome to Best Buddy Dog Trainer. My name is Jeff Causby, ABCDT, and I am a certified dog trainer living and working in Maryland. I graduated from the Animal Behavior College, I am a professional member of the  Association of Professional Dog Trainers and The Pet Professional Guild. I am an AKC CGC Evaluator. I am a C.L.A.S.S. instructor. I am Vet Recommended by 4 different Animal Hospitals/Vet Clinics in MD and a current student at Karen Pryor Academy. Look out for Trick Dog Classes coming soon. 


     My love for animals started at a young age.  My mom was a vet technician, and we fostered many different kinds of animals. At the age of 16, I started working at a dog kennel in Texas. This fueled my passion to love and care for animals well into adulthood. I started Best Buddy Dog Trainer LLC to offer pet owners a positive only option for training. I do not believe in using harsh negative methods to train my clients. I use scientific methods only. I.e., Classical Conditioning, Operant conditioning, desensitization, Counter Conditioning, Positive Reinforcement. 


    After a successful career in California, I moved to Maryland in 2016. I now offer the same great Best Buddy Dog Trainer, LLC service in Calvert County, Baltimore County, St. Mary's County and Anne Arundel County, which are located in the great state of Maryland.  I started this dog training business because I love helping people with their dog/puppy issues and I thoroughly enjoy seeing a family become closer/tighter because of successful training. I love showing people how to get the best out of their dogs, whether they are on their last nerve with a dog that is causing problems or they have a brand new puppy, it is my duty to educate the public about dog behavior with the correct, updated information. I hope to have a chance to work with you and to teach you everything I know about dog training/dog behavior.
