About The Trainer

A Little More About My Background And Training

chris-aboutChristopher Switky, founder of Positive Canine Concepts, is a certified dog trainer and a graduate of the Masters’ Program in Dog Training at CATCH Canine Trainers Academy in Little Falls, NJ. Chris’s interest in dog training was sparked by two adoptee dogs: Jasper (1994-2009) and April (2005-2015). Both of these dogs came with significant behavioral issues that put Chris on the client side of the trainer-client relationship. His experience with the successful training of these two dogs inspired him to obtain a formal education in dog training and to pursue it as a full time profession.
