Steve Diller Services
Currently, Steve is making house calls to homes where Dogs and Their People are in need of professional help. All dogs thrive on affection and attention from their family and one of the best ways to fulfill those desires is to train the dog. Training is a very bonding experience for dogs as they enjoy the interaction that takes place while learning during their training sessions.
From time to time good dogs will develop issues that may be unrelated to general obedience. Obedience is the term generally used for teaching a dog to sit, stay, down, heel and come when called. While good obedience may be a great foundation on which to create a terrific relationship, obedience may not solve all of dog’s problems.
In an effort to resolve issues of fear or aggression, a behavioral approach might make more sense than trying to use general obedience to control the problem. Behavioral plans often attempt to extinguish the negative responses through desensitization and counter conditioning rather than having the dog obey a command.
Over the past thirty plus years Steve has had the pleasure of public speaking in a number of different venues. Steve has spoken to senior citizens on topics of pet care, tenant and condo associations on being a good pet owning neighbor as well as professional dog training groups on training technique and business concepts. Steve lectured at The Pace Law School on breed specific legislation and has been on national radio and television programs numerous times throughout his career. Steve has been sought out for interviews with The NY Times, The NY Post, The Philadelphia Enquirer, The BBC and several local newspapers. Steve had a column called “Ask doc Diller” in The Gannett newspapers and had articles published in The Pet Gazette, a pet magazine published in the greater NYC area.
Steve has been qualified in The Supreme Court Of NY to testify as an expert in dog bite incidents. Steve has been called upon to offer his expertise in several court cases and continues to offer this service.
