Greg Gallegos

Greg Gallegos '72

Greg Gallegos, dog owner and certified professional trainer, started in the business back in 1974. Today he is one of the most accomplished certified professional dog trainers you will find. Greg is always looking for ways to improve his dog training methods.  He earned certification as a Professional Dog Trainer at Triple Crown Academy by completing eight weeks of intensive training; he is an official "Professional Trainer Expert." Add his expertise in "Motivational Dog Training," and one can begin to appreciate the many fine qualities he brings to his dog training school.

Greg is also an accomplished professional, having earned Bachelors of Science in Elemetary Education from Texas A&I University at Laredo in 1972 and his Masters in Education Administration from Texas A&M Corpus Christi in 2001.   This gives him an extra edge as a teacher, resulting in better methods and a basic understanding of of how to keep dog training issues in their proper perspective.  Greg served in the U. S. Navy for five years and then began his teaching career with Farias Elementary School and retired after 25  years.   In his spare time, he creates custom light images and videos.
