Tracy Zitnik, Dog Trainer

ZOW DOG training focuses on building a strong relationship using animal behavioral science to create the best training for your dog and you.

I train dogs and their people. When I say it, people understand instinctively that they unwittingly contribute to the dog problems. I assure you, you are a very large part of the solution too. I have been a dog trainer since 2016. I realize that people are inadvertently training their dogs to do weird things. So stay open-minded as together we address what things you are doing to create the dog’s behavior.  Together we will build new habits and eliminate the bad ones. You can find me in the Omaha Metro Area.

I will be adding helpful tips on how to get the behavior you want from your dog and video to show you how. Check out my blog Never Chase Your Dog!
