Hello, my name is Chris Gutierrez and I am the Head Trainer for Elevated Canine Academy DFW. I began my began my career in dog training back in November of 2013 in Southern California; through Petco’s dog training program. After a year of successfully completing the program and teaching group obedience classes, I was given an opportunity to work for and be mentored by OJ Knighten (K9 Coach) in Agua Dulce, California. I started as a Kennel Tech where I learned the invaluable lessons of reading dog body language and building their trust. I also received hands-on (and teeth-on) experience with aggression and reactivity cases. In addition to this I learned basic/advanced obedience, as well as personal protection and protection sports with the Santa Clarita Mondioring Club as both a decoy and handler. Lastly, I received experience over those years by assisting with the training of dogs for movies and television. I look forward to helping any and everyone in the DFW Metroplex and surrounding areas with all their obedience, behavioral issues, personal protection, and/or protection sport (Mondioring & PSA) needs.
