Brandon Karp is the "Trainer to the Trainers"- Long Island's only Licensed Teacher of professional dog training and behavior (one of only a couple in the entire State of New York) as well as a Certified Master Dog Trainer and Canine Behavioral Consultant.  His aim is to help dogs, dog owners and dog professionals to be their best through understanding, communication, and education.  Over the years, he's had the pleasure of working with countless trainers, veterinarians, groomers, dog walkers, kids, families, schools, companies, dog owners and dog lovers... as well as all breeds, sizes, ages and temperaments of dogs.

From the day he was born, Brandon was surrounded by dogs and other animals (from snakes to pigeons). While growing up, his father was the head of the Nassau County SPCA and then the Sullivan County SPCA in New York, which gave him an early start with dogs.  He began tagging along on cruelty investigations and rescuing dogs by the age of 7. He's had a life-time of dog experience and is considered a dog training and canine behavior expert.  As such, he's been called upon to consult on civil and criminal court cases involving dogs, to develop safety and behavior programs and protocol for various dog-care businesses, and to create educational programs for schools and communities.
