Jake Buvala

Hi! I'm Jake (that's me on the right). At 3LostDogs.com, I've been helping dog owners feel less lost since 2009.  

I started the 3 Lost Dogs blog to provide simple, effective, and non-judgy dog training information to dog owners. For the last ten years, I've been producing articles, videos, and ebooks that help people make it through the crappy parts of dog life, and get to the good parts.  

This new Academy is the next step in the 3 Lost Dogs project, and it's been a labor of love. I'm proud to be able to provide step-by-step video courses that show you exactly how to put the principles I've been preaching into action. We've got three programs so far, and there are more in the works.

The dog training methods I use today are not the same ones I started my career with; I'm always learning and improving, finding better ways to help dogs and their humans. To continue my professional education, I attend conferences like Clicker Expo, and keep up with the current scientifical understanding of dog behavior. Sifting through the endless sea of information so you don't have to.
