Our philosophy is simple; build trust between you, the handler, and your dog through exercise, discipline and affection.

Founded in 2008, Behavior Plus is a family-owned and -operated business. It all started when the Pugliese family was faced with an obstacle. In 2006 they found a stray pit-bull, rummaging the garbage for food. When they brought the dog to the animal hospital, they gave them two options, bring him to your home and take care of him, or put him to sleep. When Frank (father, founder, trainer), heard the option he, right away, said “Bring him home”. When his oldest daughter, Nicole, brought the puppy, Louie, home Frank fell in love right away. Days went by and different problems with Louie kept appearing. Frank refused to give up and began to research pit-bulls. Eventually he contacted a pit-bull rescue group. Frank knew if he wanted to keep this dog he would have to take classes. After 6 months of classes, Over 300 hrs with Louie, Behavior Plus was formed .
