In particular, he developed a fondness for the gray wolves that roamed the vast mountain ranges and forests near his home. He spent years studying the social interactions of wolves in their packs and discovered that, beyond obvious physical similarities, there were also behavioral similarities between the wolves and the sled dogs that were his family’s pets.
This led to Bryan’s lifelong pursuit in studying social predatory behavior worldwide with an emphasis on how instinct, passed from the gray wolf, has affected the behavior of our domestic dogs.
With over 30 years of education and experience studying wolves and other predators, Bryan has become a Master at understanding how nature has influenced the inner workings of the canine mind. Taking his cue from nature, Bryan utilizes his lesson plan to shape the behaviors in our dogs that are necessary for them to conform to our human existence. By doing this, and accepting the dog for the domestic wolf that it is, Bryan produces a dog that responds to his owner’s commands with not only steadfast reliability, but with the spirit and vitality of the wolf.
