"EGGERS" The Rock-N-Roll Dog Trainer


I'm now working with Reservoir Dawgs Sanctuary

Hello I'm David  Eggers

        Born in Monrovia and raised in Covina both suburbs of Los Angeles, CA.
 I've been studying dogs and animals my whole life. My grandmother was a breeder of Great Pyrenees dogs, so I ate a lot of dog biscuits growing up as a young boy. Maybe that's why I relate to dogs so well. My Aunt had a ranch and bred Arabian horses. So I did a lot of hanging out on the ranch and with the dogs . We also had many of our own animals, horses, dogs, cats, chickens and assorted wild birds.




I have the privilege of living with a 4 dogs and a rescue dog I'm training.

Charlie a 15 year old male Corgi/Shepard mix, Lisa a 10 year old female Keeshond mix, Payten 4 year old female Jack Russell, Sugar a 2 1/2 year old female Labradoodle and Shoko a female Pit mix who does some amazing things. 

  I am also a musician. I'm in the band Stonebreed, http://stonebreed.com, hence the name The Rock-N-Roll Dog Trainer. A guitar player for 30 plus years. And yes I'm still in a few bands. I've also been teaching guitar and music education for about 20. It's given me the opportunity to study how humans of all ages learn and absorb information.

  

My Experience

 My style and techniques are based on positive reinforcement.
 My training is based on  the Eclectic Training Method.
  Its all about what works for you and your dog.

Not all dogs or humans respond to the same methods.

 Dogs as pack animals respect and expect leadership.

A side from growing up with animals all around me.

I've worked as a Kennel manager, Master dog handler, Exotic animal handler ,Head dog Trainer and a Ranch manager working with Dogs, Cats, Raccoons, a Beaver, Birds, Rats, Mice and a pig. I learned a lot about how animals live and learn amongst each other.

I've been working, studying and observing dogs in a pack environment (in a cage free setting) for the past 9 years. As well as one on one lessons and group lessons.

I specialize in the Sociology and Psychology of dogs.

 Specializing in socialism, I study pack status, pack mentality and the prey drive of dogs first hand. I've learned how to socialize dogs into a pack setting without issues. And I've learned how to solcialize dogs on the street where everyone one seems to have all their issues. Understanding body language and learning to read every action the dog makes has given me a much better understanding of the Social interaction between dogs and dogs and dogs and humans.

I also attended ABC Animal College!! 

I've learned more about how dogs think and feel from observing dogs and humans.

Not from being told by or shown by humans teachers.
