About Us

Mark Siebel, owner and lead trainer of Doggie Steps Dog Training, had his first dog at the age of 10. A Miniature Schnauzer named P.J., was the perfect fit with his family of 5. Born and raised in Milwaukee, WI, Mark knew from a young age that he had a natural attraction to dogs. “I could never walk by any type of dog without petting it,” says Mark. Doggie Steps Dog Training leashed its first dog in 2005. Since then, over 3500 satisfied K’9’s and customers alike have experienced the pleasures of a calm submissive dog. The goal has always been to show owners how to properly integrate their dog into the home setting. Consulting on what kind of dog to buy, where to buy it from, preparing your home for your new friend and health/nutrition are just a few ways Doggie Steps helps its customers. Also, involving kids in confidently commanding the dog, enabling them with leadership skills and increased self-esteem. “It’s nice to see kids take ownership of the positive results that come from the training of their dog”, says Mark. Positive reinforcement, deep voice tone, strong body posture, and grunts have all been successful training approaches in the Doggie Steps training classes. Mark takes each dog’s challenges on an individual basis, and tailors each training session to address that challenge. No two dogs are exactly alike, and some training methods must be creatively developed to solve certain individual dog behaviors. The training and education of a dog, is no different than that of a human. Dogs must learn to live and socialize as a pack, within the family unit. A well trained dog will be more calm submissive in the home knowing that they’re in a follower role, rather than a leader position. 90% of alpha dominant dogs simply need to be readdressed to alter the behavior to follower and not leader. This takes some time and routine, repetition exercises, but in no time changes can be seen.
