Davenport Dog Training
Call Jim at
Dog Builders is lucky to have Jim Stenfeldt, owner of CM Academy of
Dog Training, part of our team. We consider him our local dog whisperer,
because of his innate ability to quickly identify the root of a
dog's issue, then he fixes the problem with ease. Jim has been
leading the dog training industry in the Quad Cities for over 30
His 35 years of
observing dogs in households and in his private dog park have made
him an expert in dog and pack behavior. We often compare him
to a Border Collie (his favorite breed) , because he is always
watching and trying to 'figure it out.'
He uses positive reinforcement training, but prefers
a verbal "good boy" and a rub on the head over treats. Jim says, "Most
dog owners see fast results with food, but then forget to wean them
off of food. After time, treats lose their impact and then the
owner is stuck with a food obsessed dog that won't listen. I
like when a dog learns to sit with a hand signal or a verbal
command, because t seems to stay in their memory better than 'a sit'
for a treat. I don't like to complicate training, but I am
using a clicker in my new aggression rehabilitation program."
When you work with Jim, he will make you as
successful as you want to be. He has also kept current with
the changing trends in dog training offering equipment like head
halters and clickers to clients that need them. He is the
leading dog trainer in the Quad Cities!
He is a master of fixing handlers and dogs for
ring work. If you belong to a
'club' and are not scoring well, call Jim. He will work
with you privately or fit you into a class and
increase your scores! He will make it work!
Jim trains dogs every day, not just nights and weekends. Dog
training is his full time job (not a hobby like club
Jim evaluates litters for breeders and clients.
If you want a dog to do specific job (service work, scent detection,
therapy work), he will select the right dog.
His success rate is 99%!
Tracking is one of his specialties. Call him
and ask how well his last tracking team is performing in California
and how many deer the blood hounds found this season.
Like a true Dog Builder,
he prefers when people build puppies properly to avoid future
issues. His classes and private work are in high demand, call
to schedule and appointment today.
Jim will travel as far as 4 hours away to help a
person with their dog. His local charges remain the same for
private dog training in Moline, Bettendorf, East Moline, and Rock
Island. Call for more information.
