Patrick McTague has loved animals his whole life and he began studying dog training after getting his yellow Labrador, Hudson. Patrick’s approach to training is influenced by his background as an Occupational Therapist at an elementary school here in Brooklyn. Whether human or canine, he enjoys helping students develop their skills and finding tailored solutions to let them succeed in their environments. Patrick has a particular interest in assisting individuals with intellectual disabilities to develop a positive bond with dogs, and so his next goal is training Hudson to be a therapy dog for kids with special needs. Patrick offers group classes and private lessons in manners and puppy socialization.
