David Muriello, CPDT-KA

Instructor, NJ Dog Trainer Workshops
School Director & Founder of CATCH Canine Trainers Academy

Our New Jersey program is led by accomplished professional dog trainer and CATCH School Director, David Muriello. David is a Cornell University graduate who has had a highly successful career as a dog trainer in New York City. He founded and led a multi-location dog training business for Biscuits & Bath, a Manhattan based total wellness center for dogs, now with 11 New York City locations. After leading the dog training team there since 2005, in 2010 David became the Director of Operations. In this role he further enhanced his knowledge of dog care services including dog day care, veterinary services, dog walking, grooming, overnight care and transportation. In addition to his firsthand experience training thousands of dogs in private lessons, group classes and behavior workshops, David has extensive experience in hiring and teaching dog trainers.

David works with Kelly and Chrislyn on the best way to set up a training exercise for a long recall with Gunner. Hint: reward with tug toy.

Through years of leading a very busy team of trainers, he gained a strong understanding of what skills and knowledge make dog trainers successful. Today’s CATCH programs include the best of everything David has learned about how dog lovers become skilled training professionals and lead successful careers. David has appeared as a dog expert on ABC-TV’s Rachael Ray Show and in Dog Fancy Magazine. He was also a member of the Education Advisory Group for the APDT (Association of Professional Dog Trainers), a speaker for the Petco Foundation, and an educator for St. Hubert’s Animal Welfare Pro Education Series.

What Students Are Saying:

“The workshop had a tremendous impact upon me. All the teachers approached us the same way that they approached the dogs, calm and with tons of positive reinforcement. The level of knowledge and professionalism was top-notch. Working with all the various dogs was so rewarding and the knowledge gained from that was immense and invaluable. From the bottom of my heart…A HUGE Thank You to each and every one of you who taught me this past week.” – Jason C. 2017 Graduate

“I would highly recommend this workshop – exceptional. The instructors were excellent. They allowed us to ask many questions & provided great feedback but they had us think why first and then provided an answer. It was the best feeling to know we helped these dogs get adopted. I am looking forward to attending the next workshop as soon as it is offered.” – Ann C. 2017 Graduate
