Instructor Biography

Ted Efthymiadis, dog trainer, entrepreneur, content creator.

Thanks for checking out my profile. My name is Ted Efthymiadis and I am an insanely passionate dog trainer based in Halifax NS Canada.

I have two main passions. rehabilitating reactive/aggressive dogs and helping entrepreneurs get to the next level in business. I make his services available around the world to dog owners and trainers via skype, seminars, online training, and shadowing programs.

I'v trained with many of the highest level dog trainers in North America and have traveled North America many times honing my skills over the last seven years. I received much of my training in the dog industry by working under one of the most accredited dog trainers in Canada for five years. And now I am sharing my knowledge and passion with others.

I hold a constant client base, rehabbing roughly 120 dogs a year, and also travel across Canada holding seminars for other dog trainers. Dog trainers have traveled to learn from me from around the world.

I have an awesome wife, baby daughter and three incredible dogs, Dax a 5 year old female black Lab, Neekah a 2 year old female Belgian Malinois and BB an 8 year old male Belgian Malinois. I live in beautiful Brookside NS Canada.

“My goal is to be of service to others, dog or human, I don’t discriminate. Let me help you reach a breakthrough. Those are the moments I live for.”
