Hi, I'm Adam G. Katz, the publisher of DogProblems Magazine. Our goal is to help you develop a more satisfying relationship with your dog and to safely and effectively stop problem dog behaviors.
"Why Should You Listen To Me?"
I've been a professional dog trainer since 1992 and have been the publisher of DogProblems.com since around 1997.
At one point we were the #1 dog training website on Google, Yahoo, MSN.com and several others. Our free weekly dog training tips newsletter was read by over 65,000 dog owners. I feel blessed to have played a small role in helping so many dog owners transform their dogs into enjoyable companions.
We've been featured in countless magazines, TV and radio interviews. I used to keep track of them but lost interest.
I've personally written over 30 books on the art and science of raising and training dogs-- some of them still available today at Amazon.com.
I've owned three successful dog training companies over the years and tens of thousands of dog owners have benefited from our online magazine and from our books, articles (see below) and dog training videos. I've also helped countless professional dog trainers get their local dog training businesses started.
"Why Did You Retire From Dog Training?"
My goal has always been to help as many dog owners as possible. The past few years I've been retired from actively training and have instead focused on helping other professional dog trainers to grow their dog training businesses.
Over the years of promoting DogProblems.com, I've developed mastery in the realm of pay-per-click advertising (Google Ads/Adwords, Facebook, Youtube, etc...)
And to be honest-- I had grown tired of answering the same dog training questions... again and again.
So-- please forgive the slightly chaotic organization of this website at the moment. It's a work in progress after years as an online subscription website. I'm trying to put as many resources online as possible. And all free for you to access.
Dog Training Articles
Most of these articles were written by myself and contributing writers and editors over the past twenty+ years.
I received a call last week about the news. My good friend and real estate attorney, Charlie Brown (yes, that’s his real name!) finally “gave in” to his three kids and let them have a dog. They were out at a friend’s ranch, and an 8 month-old collie-mix happened to wonder up and start playing …
Do you need a protective dog that is intelligent and devoted to its owners? If so, you may want to consider buying a Rottweiler. These big dogs were bred to be very versatile working dogs. They guard their homes and families, excel in agility training, and think that they are tiny lapdogs when they are …
If you like small dogs with big dog attitudes, you may want to consider a Yorkshire Terrier. These dogs are so sure that they are just as big and bad as the other guy, that they will not hesitate to take on a Great Dane. Of course, this doesn’t mean that Yorkshire Terriers aren’t lap …
Ask these two questions to any animal shelter you’re thinking of adopting a dog from. The answers may surprise you “What medical care has already been provided, and should I be aware of… before adopting a dog from you?” There are certain baseline medical needs that must be met before you take a dog from …

Everything in language (including “Dog-lish” — the international dog training language) is based on associations. And even if we have prior associations with a word, if those associations are not maintained properly, then the word will lose it’s meaning– or association. Or it can take on a different association. Ever been in a relationship where …
"Do You Recommend Professional Dog Trainers?
Yes! We (myself and my group of lowly paid contributors and editors) regularly take a vote based on who this site recommends.
Some of these dog trainers are my friends. Others are friends and clients of my "Done For You" Dog Trainer Marketing service. Others I've never met personally but I'm familiar with their work. The professional dog training industry is a small community. Word gets around.
