.

I searched and searched for a dog training facility that could help my Husky become the dog I know he could be. The problem is hes a sweet heart so anytime I would take him to a local dog obedience place he showed his tricks and out smarted the trainers. Mavericks problem was that he was to smart for his own good. Taking him some place for an hour to teach how to sit wasnt going to help him.
We recently got a new puppy and moved in to a new house so Maverick was very stressed. He bit our puppy a couple of times and started to challenge my husband. But again he would still obey our ordersbut on his terms.
Finding out that Ron actually took the dog out of his environment and focused on correcting the behavior was exactly the type of training that would change Mavericks habits. I talked to him on the phone for almost 2 hours!! He basically told me everything that I needed to know to fix the situation! It was amazing he, without meeting Maverick, described his behavior. We set up a consultation that night.
When we first met Ron he had me do some exercises to see how well he obeyed commands. Just like any other time I took Maverick to meet a trainer he followed every command to a tee! He looked like the perfect dog. Ron took the leash and Maverick being his stubborn self didnt want to do what a stranger wanted him to do. Finally Maverick showed his aggression to a professional. Ron told me what he needed to do break the behavior. 2 weeks Ron had Maverick and it was finally time to pick him up!
Ron told us Maverick gave him a hard time and may have been one of the most aggressive dogs he ever trained. Like I said Maverick is very intelligent and if he doesnt want to do something he will bare his teeth and knows how to get close to you to hurt you. Typically I would back off when this behavior flared up but Ron was the only person who did not back down which confused Maverick. He showed us some videos of Mavericks training. It broke my heart because I thought I had this amazing dog that wouldnt show aggression like he did in the video. But the second video he showed was the complete opposite. Ron broke the behavior and Maverick was finally obeying every command even when he didnt want to. Ron showed me some exercises to keep Mavericks training up. He went from thinking he was Alpha in the family to being very submissive.
Now Maverick gets along great with our other dog and we actually rescued another one!! They are the three best friends! I was nervous about Maverick around kids but he is amazing with our nieces and nephews. Sometimes I can see Maverick starting to feel uncomfortable in situations but instead of acting out like he used to he contains himself and gives me a sign that he needs to go be alone. Finally my husband and I feel like our own child will be safe in our home without giving up my first baby! We are happy to say we are starting a family and expecting our first baby boy in September. Before Ron corrected Maverick I was extremely hesitant to start a family. I am more than happy to share my story with anyone who feels they need a dog whisper! Ron has my contact information for those who want to speak with an actual client. I am very honest with my experience.

I dont normally write reviews and rarely give top marks but Ron is incredible!! If you are reading this review and are in search of a trainer stop here do yourself a favor and hire Ron. The great thing is Ron trains dogs out of state as well as in - state, we are lucky that he is not that far away but if you live out of state you can make arrangements with Ron to get your dog trained. We have 2 GSD puppies we purchased and had them since they were 6 weeks old. They are great dogs but they dont listen. They can do a couple tricks, but they also jumped up on people and they had a relational bond issue. At 4 months old they are dragging us down the street on their walks. 4 months old just imagine if we didnt get any help, we wouldnt be able to walk them. Everyone told us we would have to rehome one of our pups because it would never work. We were appalled because we love both of them. They are a part of our family and we will do whatever it takes to keep them together. I called a couple professional trainers and no one wanted to help us since our GSD's were male and brothers. Then I saw Ronald Pfierman (Cincinnati Dog Bootcamp, http://www.aztecdogtraining.com/) video on You Tube watched it several times, kept going back to it ( I think divine intervention) and decided to give him a call. He was so awesome on the phone. I told him our situation and he gave me some ideas to use with the dogs before we had a chance to bring them in. He also said it sounded like we were doing a good job with them and it made us feel better about everything. I convinced my husband that Ron could help us. So my husband and I took our two German shepherd dogs to Ron at 4 months old. Ron couldn't believe the size of our dogs and said it was a good thing we brought them in because they would be harder to control as they grew up together with bad habits. In 10 minutes he had James under control, heeling, sitting etc. it was amazing. He then did the same with Jesse. Jesse has had a problem jumping on people. He took Jesse and had him heeling, sitting and listening in 10 minutes and then he worked on the jumping up on me. In 3 passes Jesse no longer jumped on me. My husband and I were amazed. Of course Ron explained that what he is able to do with the dogs can also be transferred to us but we would have to do our homework and transfer the leadership skills from himself to one of us first off and then both of us a couple weeks down the line. Ron and Melissa are two wonderful people. They have a nice clean home and kept the dogs in the house and in a very clean area. Their home doesn't smell of dogs at all as a matter of fact if you didnt see the cages lined up in the room, you wouldn't know an animal was in the home. The vet needs to take a lesson from Ron and Melissa. The great thing about Ron's training is that he is so good with the dogs. They respect him. I think he loves them as much as we do:) Before we took Jesse, home Ron trained me on what I need to do to keep Jesse on the right track with training at home and taking the leadership role. Its been two weeks and we took Jesse home yesterday and at first we let him check out the house and I saw that if we didnt do what Ron said, Jesse would try to take back the leadership role. Ron warned us that this would happen. He said your same old loveable dog is there, he just needs to know who has the leadership in the house and if you dont use the stall chain, it will make it harder to take control. So we did exactly what Ron told us. Jesse tried testing us early in the morning barking and making a racket but we just ignored him to show him that we are in control and not him. Not everyone in the household was happy but I plan on doing things exactly as Ron has instructed us so our dogs are great in the home and outside and with visitors. You have to get your dog to see you as the leader and not Ron. My training this morning went Awesome. Jesse listened to me and sat and stayed in his place as told. It was crazy awesome. Then I came in the house and texted Ron to make sure I was doing everything right so that Jesse wasn't confused. Ron is patient and caring and he doesn't mind a million questions via text or phone call. This guy is awesome!!! Now, my husband will be doing the same with James. Bob will be the leader and our dog James who is a major Alpha dog has seen this too. I cant say enough about this guy. We have referred several of our friends to him as well. If you are looking for a true dog whisperer, who cares about your family member and will make a huge difference in both of your lives in a positive and caring way you need to give Ron a call. I feel God led me to Ron and I am 100% Satisfied!!!

n March of 2012 my family and welcomed into our home a papillon puppy and named her Madeline. I had never had my own dog before so I wanted to get started on the right track. First I chose Barkbusters, known throughout the nation. It was the worst $500 I ever spent. They did nothing for me. So, I let it go. My dog became a little terror. She would bite my 6 year old daughter and I, she used the bathroom all throughout the house, she ate paper of any kind and growled and barked at my husband, and she was pretty sure she owned me!! It was out of control. My husband and I were constantly fighting about it. I decided in June of 2013 we could have no more. I live in Northern Virginia, and started looking around. Prices were astronomical, $1000-$1500 just to train my dog. We couldn't afford these rates. So, I was going to visit my parents in Ohio and looked for dog training schools in the Cincinnati area. After searching for awhile I came upon Aztec Dog Training. Immediately I was impressed! He had YouTube videos showing his training technics, in which, many of the others did not. It showed him training massive breeds all the way down to little ones like my own. I liked that the website was full of information, and many of the policies and ideas in which he uses to train these dogs. I called him up two weeks before I left for Cincinnati and we set a date for him to meet Madeline.

When I met Melissa and Ron for the first time, I'll have to say Ron was a little intimidating at first. This big guy, with a deep voice, I wasn't sure how it was going to work out. But, when he first met Madeline he warmed right up to her, she loved him, and I saw he had a soft side. They were very welcoming and explained everything that they were going to do, showed me where she would stay and even showed me some of the training methods that he would be using right away. I even saw how they interacted with their own dog and how he listened even with another canine in the room. I was impressed. I signed the contract and handed over my precious baby.

Ron called after 10 days and said that even though most dogs are ready after this time, my Madeline was giving him trouble. It didn't surprise me. He offered to keep her for 4 more days, no charge!! He told me that he wanted her to be ready to go home.

When I came to pick her up, she was just as happy and chipper as when I left her. Then he showed me everything she learned. She was like a different dog!!! Personality wise she was still my papillon, but behavior wish she listened to everything he said, and looked at him as the leader of the pack. He had us come back for 2 more sessions and taught my daughter and I how to handler her as well. Ron does give you homework. He asks for 10 mins a day for you to work with the dog just to make sure they don't forget and end up regressing. I was so pleased.

That was in July. My Madeline definitely suffers from that "little dog syndrome" and sometimes she thinks she can get away with things. However, if I ever have trouble I just text or call Ron and immediately get a response. I have never had a problem at all!!

Ron and Melissa Pfierman are two people who dedicate themselves to the happiness of dogs and their owners. Ron has been studying and working with dogs for over 30 years and his expertise definitely shows this. Sometimes if he learns something new on how to deal with dogs, he will let me know. I am so happy that I chose to work with these two great people, and if I were to ever get another dog I would definitely be taking him to Aztec Dog Training.

Thank you Ron and Melissa for helping my Madeline and our family!

My wife and I looked for a trainer for our 12 week old shiba inu "cypher" for about 3 weeks before finding Ronald's service.. Cypher was a complete monster to put things lightly.Ronald was up for the challenge and did not sugar coat anything about what type of dog we had.
When i met him he first showed me his place and where the training would occur and where my puppy would be housed, i felt really good about the area and knew that my puppy would be taken care of , i could tell they loved dogs and ours would be completely safe.
Ronald kept cypher for 2 weeks and let me tell you , he has gone from little monster to little angel. at no point did i notice any type of mistreatment of any kind to my dog.
Ronald is a great trainer and a really good person whom loves animals and wouldn't harm them, i truly believe that's why he does this, i will 100% use his services again as soon as my wife allows me to get an american eskimo!
