Owner / Trainer

Marvin Versteeg is a state-renowned and highly recommended dog trainer and behaviorist, known for his ability to bring people and their dogs closer together through the our premier training system. He helps clients remove conflict from the training process and assists them with rehabilitating their dogs through emotional balance and structure.

“If you are going to do something, always do your best!”

Utilizing his background in training people to motivate others through enthusiasm, it came natural to instruct clients on how to motivate their furred friend.

This system allows each and every client to maintain a happy dog, with off-leash control under the severest of distractions. Marvin coaches people to tap into their dog’s natural instincts and show leadership… then lovership.

With his motto of “if you are going to do something, always do your best”, passion is seen in his training, and he strives to transfer this enthusiasm to each of his clients. Marvin remains a student to dog training and continues to grow as a person as well as a trainer.

Marvin has been hosted as a dog training professional in all aspects of the media from television to radio to newspapers.
