Shelly Leibowitz

Shelly Leibowitz is no stranger to the smile that comes from being around dogs. With over 40 years of experience and thousands of satisfied customers, Shelly Leibowitz is one of the most sought-after dog trainers in the United States.

His passion for dogs started as child when he began walking neighborhood pups and working for different training facilities over the years. In his teen years, he began his career training companion dogs in the New York City area, and quickly expanded his skillset to include training canines for security, contraband, and bomb detection duties.

Today, he trains dogs for a wide range of clients and collaborates with lawyers and judges to help rescue and rehabilitate problematic dogs. An expert in importing dogs, he’s committed to pairing clients with their perfect match. He also serves as a mentor and has taught many students how to become professional dog trainers.

For Leibowitz, working with dogs has always been more than a job, it’s the way he runs his life.
