About Jason Cohen
It didn’t come as a surprise to anyone when I became a Certified Canine Training and Behavior Specialist. Wherever I go, it seems that dogs come to meet me. It started back when I was 9 years old living in Israel. One by one by one these dogs were following me and before i knew it, I had a pack of local strays to keep me company.
More recently, I was lucky to have a very spirited rescue dog I named Cheddar. As he grew up he started exhibiting signs of leash aggression. After approaching a few different dog trainers and working with Cheddar myself, I was inspired to help other dogs and their owners.
I started by volunteering with Badass Brooklyn Animal Rescue after adopting my current dog Karma from them. I realized that helping humans and dogs communicate better is the best way to saving these amazing dogs' lives, I decided being a Dog Trainer is the path for me.
This brought me to the largest, and most comprehensive dog training school in the world, Starmark Academy, where I graduated from the Canine Training and Behavior Specialist Program.
I love dogs and believe that they deserve to have the best lives possible. That’s why I apply the best training techniques to motivate your dog, inspire you as a dog owner and help foster a better relationship between you both.
I am Veteran of the US Army, a Professional Member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT) and Associate Member of the International Association of Canine Professionals (IACP). Read more about my continued education here.
I believe in always training the dog in front of you, and understanding that no two dogs are the same. In order to focus on your individual dog and your specific goals, I break down the process into three parts:
Bark is the problem we want to solve. Whether it's jumping, pulling on the leash, not coming when called, separation anxiety, aggression, or incessant barking, we start by finding your dogs motivation.
Train is how we fix the communication gap between you and your dog. Most issues can be resolved with positive, motivational training and behavior modification. With the right timing, consistency, and tools, getting everyone on the same page can be easier than you think.
Love is what we all want to give our dogs, but there has to be balance. Through physical and mental exercise, communication and building a reward history of good behavior, we can help you develop a healthy relationship with your dog.
Let me show you and your dog what Bark. Train. & Love is all about, get started here.
Here are some of our success stories I am proud to be part of. I hope these stories can help others in similar situations see how open minded training, dedication and advocacy can help make all the difference in helping humans and dogs live better lives together.
I offer personalized dog training solutions for a range of dog issues from puppy training and skills to everything from excessive barking, digging, chewing, anxiety and more. Whether your dog has dangerous habits like biting or aggression, or you simply want to learn the basics to groom a well-behaved pup, I can help.
Get started today, by filling out the Application for Training so I can better understand any behavior issues and your training needs.
After you've filling out the Application for Training, we can set up your Behavior Consultation and Training session to help you achieve your hopes and goals for a more compatible relationship with your dog.
We start with a behavior consultation at your home, where together I can assess your needs better and create training goals. Then, I’ll base the 90 minute lesson around the immediate and future training needs. The behavior consultation and training session last around 2 hours. We will discuss the best program at the end of our session.
During this session I help close the communication gap between you and your dog by explaining how dogs learn, our marker and communication system, how we stop unwanted behaviors, how to better understand what your dog's body language is saying, as well as talk about about the pros and cons of dog parks, dog food ingredients, crates, meeting other dogs on leash and of course answer any questions you might have.
