Hi, I'm Adam G. Katz, the publisher of the (now defunct) DogProblems Magazine. Our goal was to help you learn how to get your dog to listen to you-- anywhere you go. And to 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 since around 1997.
At one point we were the #1 dog training website on Google, Yahoo, and several others-- all at the same time.

Our free weekly dog training tips newsletter was read by close to 70,000 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
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 and dog training videos. I've also helped countless professional dog trainers get their local dog training businesses started with my dog training marketing website,

"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, 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.

"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 I've never met personally but I'm familiar with their work. The professional dog training industry is a small community. Word gets around.
