He also produced and is featured on the Dog Whisperer DVDs, Volumes One and Two. The Dog Whisperer book was rated a “classic” by the Whole Dog Journal and the Dog Whisperer DVD was reviewed as “the best DVD on basic training of pets for the pet owner…” in the APDT newsletter: Chronicle of the Dog.
Paul began training dogs in 1972. For over 40 years, he has been one of the leading proponents of positive, nonviolent animal training in the world. Paul is the founder/director of the children’s after-school, violence prevention program, Paws for Peace. He has won several awards in competitive obedience, participated and taught agility and water work and been an evaluator for service dogs. He is also a Canine Good Citizenship evaluator.
Paul has practiced and taught yoga in the United States and India for over 35 years. His programs are unique in that stress management methods for humans are presented as part of the classes. He often quotes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr: “If peace is our goal our means must be peaceful.”
Paul‘s specialty is in the evaluation and behavior modification of aggressive dogs and he is frequently consulted and referred by veterinarians. His public service work includes bite prevention programs for children and monthly dog training seminars at area Humane Societies and shelters. Paul has appeared on numerous radio and television programs, including PBS’s Pets Part of the Family and the nationally syndicated Pet Files. His articles and interviews have appeared in several local and national magazines, including Self, Animal Wellness Magazine, Bark magazine, The Pet Press, The Cleveland Plain Dealer, LA Parent, The Burbank Leader, The Whole Dog Journal, The Yoga Journal, Alaskan Airlines Magazine and many others.
Paul says, “I believe nonviolence fosters nonviolence. Because of the link between dog and human behavior, nonviolent dog training contributes to helping build a world of peace for humans and dogs. When people, especially children, are successful using nonviolent methods with animals, they feel good about themselves and they are encouraged to have a kinder, more positive attitude with their friends, family, and the environment.”
