Dog Trainer; New York, Long Island, Manhattan
Steve Hong is a highly respected and accomplished trainer for his age and we are excited to have him join the K-9 Behavior Services' team. His credentials as a trainer are hard to match and Steve is well versed on working with all types of dogs with all sorts of issues. Not only is Steve great with dogs, he is great with people and loves to teach both equally.
Steve Hong was nothing short of groomed to be a dog trainer, his father raised, trained, and competed dogs throughout Steve’s childhood in Korea and continued when they moved to the United States. Steve was learning training and breeding from the very beginning, handling and showing numerous dogs as a child, gained valuable experience during that time, and has owned and handled many different breeds of dogs, ranging from Korean Jindos to Pomeranians. From that time up to the present, Steve has traveled the world and competed at some of the highest levels of competition in the very competitive sport of Schutzhund with his German Shepherds and the occasional Belgian Malinois by his side. Steve has also specialized in the handling and training of Pit Bulls, a breed he has loved for many years and understands well.
Steve’s talents in dog training include basic to advanced obedience, protection training, sport/competition training, service work, movie work, aggression issues and puppy training.
We are proud to offer Steve as a trainer to those wanting to work with the best, most experienced trainer possible in the New York NYC, Long Island, and Manhattan areas.
