Hello everyone! My name is David Greenberg, and I found my passion of dog training when I rescued my first dog, Sadie. When I rescued Sadie, I realized she had anxiety problems, and she was extremely fearful of people. Through intensive rehabilitation and training, I was able to rehabilitate Sadie's anxious behaviors and find a new passion in dog training. I founded Calm K9 Training because I wanted to develop a unique real world dog training program that brings out each dog's full potential. At Calm K9 Training, we are not just focused on teaching your dog obedience commands; more importantly, we train your dog to make good choices on their own and access a calm, relaxed state of mind.


When all of these things are in place, you will see a significant transformation in your dog and your relationship with your dog. Your dog's behavior will be improved, and you and your dog will have a type of bond you may have never imagined possible. Our philosophy at Calm K9 Training is that any dog, no matter their breed, size, or history of behavior/aggression can be trained and rehabilitated. There is no dog we cannot help.

Dalia Burks, Trainer

Hi everyone! My name is Dalia and I’m a trainer with Calm K9. I found my passion in dog training a few years back when I rescued my pup Jason Todd from the shelter. Jason came to my family with a laundry list of behavioral problems that stemmed mostly from anxiety. Immediately I knew I had to figure the best ways to communicate with him that the things he feared most he didn’t have to worry about because he is safe and I have things under control. His story was that he was found near a bridge by the highway so I couldn’t imagine what his life must’ve been like to lead him there. All I knew is I wanted to give him the best life possible, with a lot less stress and more time being able to just be a dog. I previously worked with kids for about 13 years in various different fields, so I applied a little of what I learned as far as patience and consistency. Learning to never give up because it’s more worth it for them than it could ever be for you. I’ve always wanted to be helpful and still now parents and children that I’ve worked with in the past remain in contact with me and continue to share their stories and appreciation. Ultimately I understand how stressful, frustrating, and concerning it could be to have a dog that comes with a little more spice than expected. For the “pawrent” and the pup. I believe my purpose in life is to help people so this is just another way I hope to do so.
