Raymond has been working with dogs and dog owners for over 14 years, starting back in 2007. After being inspired by Cesar Milian’s The Dog Whisperer. Raymond set out to understand and build a better relationship with his first dog, who exhibited food aggression and caused many problems in the house. This opportunity sparked a passion that led Raymond to attend Penn Foster College and Camden County College classes on Dog Obedience, Animal Behavior & Pack Mentality. Raymond spent his free time working at various dog stores, shelters and boarding facilities such as Petco, Best Friends Pet Care and Homeward Bound Animal Shelter.
After completing training, word quickly got around that Raymond was a certified, experienced dog trainer. He began making house calls to help those in need. Training over a hundred dog breeds a year ranging in age from puppies to seniors, dealing with aggression cases, potty issues and more. After spending three years as a corporate certified Petco Positive Trainer, Raymond set out on his own. In 2017 he created his dog training company called Transform Your Dog, LLC which was inspired and encouraged by one of his closest clients. Lisa and David Hillenbrand gave him the idea for the name, the concept and even emotional support to branch out on his own. They told him, “You train dogs, but you transform people.”
Raymond’s passion for dogs led him to become an A.K.C. certified licensed evaluator for A.K.C. Canine Good Citizen & S.T.A.R. Puppy certification in 2018, which allowed him to offer more services to his growing clientele.
In December 2020, after the tragedy and pandemic of COVID-19, Raymond and Transform Your Dog LLC reached out to cousin and fellow dog trainer, Lexi Pasquale for assistance. She connected him with Nicole Buck of Buck’s Dog Training, LLC in Mantua, NJ. Nicole hired Transform Your Dog to make it a proud associate of Buck’s Dog Training, LLC.
