Jeff Mastropetre

Trainer, behaviorist, problem solver, certified dog nut.

People tell me all the time, that I was born for this!  Before I was a dog trainer, I was a mechanic and welder for Sikorsky Aircraft/ Lockeed Martin. This is where my ability to diagnose, trouble shoot and repair problems comes from. I have a mechanic and inventive mindset.
    After studying behavioral psych at MXCC, I studied under not one, but 3 trainers with a combined 125 years of experience! I spent a few years training obedience and doing bite work for Canine Cadre in Wallingford before deciding to establish Kiss K9. 
Next I apprenticed under the legendary Laurie Fass (host of WTIC PET TALK) and technical skills flourished. 
Next, traveled to Tampa Florida to learn so much from World Champion trainer Ivan Balabanov. I learned to train protection and sport dogs and just understand dogs in a way that I didn’t think was possible. 
I will never stop educating my self. I continue to travel the country to learn from the best of the best. My favorite quote, “when you know better, you do better”. I am forever grateful to those who passed their knowledge to me. Please allow me to share some with you!
