Hi! My name is Ben, and I'd like to thank you for visiting our website. I am the owner, operator and master trainer for Black Paw Canine (BPC), a Veteran Owned & Operated Company. We are the leading canine program in Central Ohio in the areas of exceptional service canines, law enforcement canine, professional development seminars and canine behavioral assessments.
I developed the name BPC after my personal, working and service dog Remi. She was a
9-year-old Dutch Shepherd and loved to show all sides of her personality, from playful pup to hardcore working dog. The drive to own my dog consulting company arose many, many years ago when I trained my first bird dog. I have been hooked on animal behavior, specifically canine behavior ever since!
The best part about working with various types of dogs is the multiple breeds you encounter of various sizes, shapes, and personalities. One of the best moments in training is when I can see the dog learn and understand what I am asking of it.
I focus on using dog psychology. What does this mean you might ask? Its when we can speak dog to dog and use positive rewards. I always end a session on a positive note where the dog gets to take home a win. This instills in the dog a positive mindset, which translates to wanting to please their handler.
To tell you a little more about myself, I am a United States Veteran and am serving as a Naval Reservist. I have many years of dog training experience, including civilian and military. I am a certified Master Canine Trainer, Operational Decoy, Operational Decoy Instructor, and Canine Behavioral Specialist.
