ABOUT

Matt Nitzberg has trained dogs and their handlers for over 10 years. During that time he has worked with law enforcement K9 units for maintenance training in patrol, narcotics, explosives and tracking.

As a youth, Matt's parents gave his family the gift of growing up with dogs. In his adult life, Matt was fortunate to receive another gift when he met his dog training mentor, Marv Gangloff. Marv has shared with Matt over 40 years of knowledge and experience in obedience, behavior, and the difference between the two.

Matt's goal for the PDXK9 client is to educate the handler how to guide their dog as opposed to Matt “fixing” the dog for the client.

 

Many dogs have the potential to learn from and respond to the guidance of their handlers. The key is the amount of time, effort and consistency required by each handler to achieve a strong relationship.

Master Trainer, Marv Gangloff of Mar-Ken International K-9 Training Center

Marv has been a dog behavior specialist and trainer for over 40 years. In addition to being a P.O.S.T. certified instructor, coordinator and evaluator, he was a member of the first committee that established the P.O.S.T. guidelines for law enforcement service dogs. Marv has authored various material on dog training as well. Marv is an expert witness on law enforcement K-9's and dog behavior related cases. Marv has been instrumental in the development of Matt as a trainer.
