Zak George is a celebrity dog trainer and YouTube star who has trained thousands of dogs throughout his career. His YouTube channel, Zak George’s Dog Training Revolution, is the number one destination for dog training content in the world, with more than ten million views annually. His first book, Zak George's Dog Training Revolution, was published by Penguin Random House in 2016.
Zak has also starred in two of his own dog training shows, Animal Planet’s show Superfetch and the BBC’s Who Let the Dogs Out. He has appeared as an expert on various other Animal Planet shows such as Dogs 101 while his expertise has landed him on may national talk shows and news programs such as Late Night with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Early Show on CBS, Fox and Friends, and Rachael Ray.
Zak’s goal is to raise the standards in the dog-training industry as he advocates for the latest in scientific understanding of dog behavior while balancing this approach with twenty-first century ethics. A strong proponent of positive reinforcement dog training, Zak wants to spread the message that people shouldn’t treat their dogs like members of a pack because these domesticated animals are a far cry from the ancient wolves they descended from. Also, rather than relying on a one-size-fits-all methodology, his fresh, positive approach allows people to tailor their training to their dog's unique personality and energy level, leading to quicker results and a much happier pet.
Zak lives in New Orleans with his girlfriend, Bree; their dogs, Venus, Supernova, Alpha Centauri, and Indy; and their cat, Angela.
