      A former marine wildlife handler and professional dog trainer since 1986, Don Sullivan made his media debut in 2000 with his national Canadian TV show, Doggin' It. Wowing audiences with his 7-minute makeovers while working with dogs he'd never met before, Don Sullivan went on to become a worldwide household name as the ultimate dog training expert, The DogFather. Sullivan hit the world stage in 2008 with his globally televised Secrets to Training the Perfect Dog system. He's renowned for achieving amazing behavioral transformations in even the most extreme "bad" dog behavior cases, with positive changes seen in just minutes!

      Don Sullivan, The DogFather inspires dog owners around the world to wake up to the influences that are undermining the realization of their dreams. He empowers them with an unprecedented array of knowledge, skills, and in-depth understanding of the innate canine nature, launching them to instant success with their own dogs. Most people are truly convinced they had tried it all before they meet The DogFather. Many are on the verge of giving their dogs away, or even having them ethanized. Then their lives are turned around far beyond what they thought was ever possible.
