Simple Actions that Lead to Astonishing Outcomes!

Welcome to OCEAN4Dogs

OCEAN deepens the bond between dogs and people by improving two-way communication and creating more joy and creativity in training and problem solving, for better teamwork and a deeper connection. 

OCEAN solves perplexing performance problems by identifying the root causes of problems and providing simple actions that increase trust, resilience, and joy, resulting in clear paths to progress.


"Of all the online courses I’ve taken, OCEAN has definitely given me the best bang for my buck."

Meredith and Geordie

I have been a member of some of Susan Garrett’s programs (Canada), One Mind Dogs (Finland), and Absolute Dogs Training Academy (UK)—those were all dealing with clients numbering in the thousands.

What I like about OCEAN is that it is a much smaller group where you don’t feel lost in the crowd, you get great feedback, and that feedback isn’t a bonus that you have to pay extra for—it’s all part of a very reasonably priced package.  

Dev is flexible, responsive, insightful and genuinely encouraging. I can honestly say that of all the online courses and programs I’ve taken over the years, OCEAN has definitely given me the BEST bang for my buck.

 "In less than a month, I am in love with training my dog again!"

Annette and Moxxy

In less than a month, I am in love with training my dog again! Within that short amount of time, Dev helped me to learn to see and respond to tiny signs of relaxation in Moxxy. She is still 100% ready to do the next thing, but is now calm enough to listen to me communicate to her how awesome she is.

By paying attention to Moxxy’s emotional state, I am now training the whole dog and not just the external behaviors, which makes our training sessions fun and productive with little to no frustration on either of our parts. Thank you Dev for sharing your time and expertise with me
