South Glens Falls dog trainer attracts attention
SOUTH GLENS FALLS, NY (NEWS10) – From an early age, Tom Davis always had a connection with dogs. The South Glens Falls native is making a name for himself as a dog trainer and trainer with a high-profile clientele that includes celebrities, athletes, politicians, influencers and royalty.
His training method focuses more on the owner and not the dog. Through his work as a trainer, educator and content creator, Davis’ mission is to give dogs a voice.
“My specialty — and my secret sauce, if you will — is really educating owners about the reasons for the issues they’re having,” he said. “As well as what they need to do with their relationship with their dog to improve it.”
As well as owning Upstate Canine Academy in the Capital Region, Tom documents much of his daily life as a content creator on YouTube. With nearly 500,000 subscribers, her channel chronicles her travels across the country working with dogs and their owners as they work to build a better relationship.
Last month, Davis was featured on “Today’s show“ as part of a segment for National Puppy Day. One of the highlights for him was meeting Carson Daly.
“We got there and it was the lights, the camera, the action! And I was a huge TRL fan at the time, so seeing Carson Daly and meeting him and working with him and Hoda and the other guests, everything happened very quickly, but it was a great experience!” he said “Being from a small town in upstate New York and having the opportunity to be on one of the biggest morning shows in the world and go over some puppy stuff was amazing. .”
