Ferdie is a wildlife biologist and Certified Professional Dog Trainer (CPDT-KA). He has shared his life with dogs for over 25 years and has been training animals since 2002. Drawing on his experience as a wild animal behaviorist and trainer, Ferdie teaches positive training methods to help his clients foster relationships with their dogs based on trust and understanding.
In addition to training dogs to become well-behaved canine citizens, Ferdie has connected with the Gotham Coyote Project to train dogs to detect Eastern coyote scat in New York City and Long Island. DNA extracted from coyote scat will help biologists count coyotes, track individuals, and determine where NYC coyotes are coming from (e.g., Westchester, Connecticut, New Jersey).
