About Mark Forrest Patrick
Trainer & Tuxedo’s K9 Camp Counselor
Mark spent most of his career in Customer Service Management, but his real passion was his love for animals, particularly dogs. Mark has a great gift for taking an ill behaved, sometimes aggressive dog and turning him into a big old teddy bear.
Mark created the Tuxedo’s K-9 Training Camp for that very purpose. He wanted to help dog lovers in the Rochester NY area, learn how to care for and really enjoy living with their K9 companion. He uses a positive reinforcement approach to building a long lasting relationship between owner and dog. Through this training method your K9
companion learns that good behavior will be positively rewarded.
“Training for you…. Training for your dog!”
Mark teaches the dog, but he also teaches the owners and their family members how to interact with their pet so that they can be comfortable and happy with their furry companion.
Mark is a writer and contributor for the Rochester Woman’s Magazine. The publication is distributed in the Rochester, NY area. Mark’s articles are based on behavior, nutrition and safety for your canine companion.
Mark has also been an advocate for animal rights and involved with the Beverly Animal Shelter in Waterloo, New York, Verona Street Animal Shelter in Rochester, NY and the Cracker Box Palace a large animal rescue shelter in Alton, New York.
