Bryan Litchford is a resident of Van Buren, Arkansas, and has been active in the community for the past 23 years as the owner of m7Studio. As a guitar instructor he has had the pleasure of working with people of all walks of life. His love of working with people is rivaled only by his love of dogs. He has been a dog owner since childhood and has had an interest in training dogs since he was a teenager. Later in life he began training as a hobby. Once he began studying dog behavior, he became fascinated with the science of training. He soon made the decision to train professionally. He became a member of The Association of Professional Dog Trainers, and after taking some courses in dog training and working as a behavior and training consultant volunteer at a local dog shelter, he took the exam to become a CPDT-KA (Certified Professional Dog Trainer). He strives to always train using force-free, science-based training methods that are ethical and healthy for the dog and easy for the dog owner. He is committed to continuing education to stay current on the latest science and best practices of dog training.
