Dave Putman began his career with dogs four years ago when he adopted a goofy little Pit bull from the City of Buffalo Animal Shelter. After a few weeks with Roland, Dave knew he was in over his head. Unsure of how to deal with the issues, Dave sought professional help.


Upon completing a series of private lessons; Dave knew this was what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. A former City of Buffalo English Educator, Dave's eloquent instruction and passion has become a staple in all programs at The Art of Dog.


Dave's personal pack includes Roland the wonky eyed Pitbull and Oakee de Loucyn the Belgian Malinois.
