Do any of these sound familiar?
I am overwhelmed by my dog’s behavior.
I feel lost with my new puppy.
I’m jealous of other people casually walking their dog on leash.
I am embarrassed when people come to visit and my dog jumps all over them.
I get frustrated when I call my dog and they ignore me.
I've used trainers before and all we did was learn some commands.

I'm John Imler
I'm a Certified Professional Trainer and Licensed Family Dog Mediator. I own Top Dog Training, Kentucky and there's not many people more passionate about helping humans and dogs than me.
In 1995, after getting out of the military I got my own “problem dog” and needed help dealing with aggression and reactivity. Our family had dogs growing up but this one was mine and I had to figure out what to do.
Fast forward to 2014 where I left a successful position at a Fortune 500 company and turned a passion for working with dogs into a career by opening Top Dog Training Kentucky with the goal of helping owners and dogs in Kentuckiana.
Now after a decade in business and thousands of dogs later I've realized my dream. I have a leash in my hand and a dog with me every day and work with clients across the country, present at conferences, work with rescues on serious cases, and am very active in the pet industry as a coach and mentor.
FOLLOW ME ON THE BELOW!
I use a method that focuses on the Whole Dog and is designed to help owners truly understand the amazing canines we share our lives with and help dogs understand and value what you want.
We go way beyond "obedience" and focus on successfully living with your dog because let's face it, I don't want to walk around issuing "commands" all day.
Every owner can have their own
It's my goal to help make that happen...
We'll go far beyond the "obedience" approach. Where most trainers just teach commands, we work on how to LIVE with your dog.
This method is designed to fundamentally change the relationship you have with your dog from often a position of mutual "misunderstanding" to one of clear communication and mutual respect. It is based on on building trust and takes into account the fact that both the dog and the owner play a role in the success of a training program. I have used this on thousands of dogs. This program can be modified to address everything from general behavior issues and manners to aggression and reactivity.
My clients are provided a suite of services including access to me via text and phone as well as online video support.
So regardless of the program you choose you choose… it works because I focus on the dog AND the human.
