Master Trainer, Owner
Frank began training in 2005 and created Behavior Plusin 2008. Working with rescue dogs, Frank gained a tremendous amount of experience dealing with troubled animals. Over the years, he developed a strong, confident presence that dogs responded to. Through experience and training, Frank began to write programs based on the individual dog’s behavior.
Using proven techniques, Frank learned to establish a leadership role and create a bond and trust with some of the worst cases. Rehabilitating dogs became a passion, and the Pugliese family opened their home to some of most damaged dogs. These dogs became his pack and now work with clients to help them solve their behavior problems.
Over the past several years, Frank has been called on by several rescue organizations to work with their worst cases. Traveling up and down the East coast, Frank has successfully assisted owners in rehabilitating their dogs.
Frank's principles are simple. Educate the owner and teach the principles of body, mind and soul and your dog will respond. Believing in yourself creates confidence in your dog, and with this philosophy anything is possible.
Today, the Pugliese house has 11 dogs that are all members of his pack. These dogs are called upon to assist in all aspects of training. Whether aggression or basic obedience, nothing teaches you better than the pack.
Looking to the future, Frank has opened a small obedience school for dogs to work in and has provided a quiet, safe place for consultations.
