Default Dog Trainer Warning

Just figured I'd pass this along...I know sometimes this stuff is sensationalized, but he does not have very good reviews either. I guess this guy does service dog, schutz, FR, etc.

Steve Welch is a dog trainer in orange and Riverside counties. DO NOT USE HIM! He will tell you that your pet will be lodged in an airy, shaded, lovely outdoor kennel, when the reality is that they are housed in plastic airline crates, WITH NO WATER, in his poorly ventilated HOT garage! I have photos posted on my FB page, as I was supposed to learn how to train dogs with him.....until I discovered that he's a narcissistic, lying POS. He showed my mom and I his facility, and before I discovered the truth, we paid him a LOT of money for boot camp for my mom's white boxer. It wasn't until after I signed the confidentiality agreement and was allowed behind the scenes, that I saw what was really going on. In my first two days there, one of his customer's dog DIED, most likely from heat exhaustion. On my first day, when I saw the BS these poor dogs were suffering through, I pulled my mom's dog out. I only stayed long enough to gather evidence for animal control, who was fooled by his lies. The only reason the garage was open at the time was for me to take the photo. It was normally CLOSED. Look at the BIG shepherd in the SMALL crate. Welch also operates a "rescue" and a nonprofit for assistance dogs. Don't be fooled!
