All in the Family with Dog Trainer Bash Dibra

Share Article

Thirty five years ago Bash trained the mother's dog, thirty five years later he is training the daughter's new puppy.

Thirty five years ago Dog Trainer and Animal Behaviorist Bash Dibra had just opened Fieldston Pets, offering dog training, pet supplies, grooming, and pet boarding.

One of the many calls he received after setting up his business was from Manhattan. The caller had just added two blessed events to her family, a Siberian Husky puppy named Tara and a 9lb. baby girl. Her request to Bash was "please help me train my puppy." Bash made an appointment and began the dog training sessions. As she tells it, Bash not only trained the puppy, but fed her baby girl a bottle and changed her diaper. Bash says he doesn't remember the baby part!

Thirty-five years have passed and the other day he received a call from the same woman who called him 35 years ago, telling Bash her daughter just became the proud owner of a new puppy and would be calling him to set up training lessons for her dog.

The daughter called the next day and reminded Bash that along with training her mother's puppy he had fed her and changed her diaper (which Bash still does not remember.) Now she has added a brand new Pit Bull type (mixed breed) puppy to her family, and wants Bash to help her train it.

During the 35 years since Bash opened Fieldston Pets in Riverdale, NY, he has trained thousands of dogs including ones owned by celebrities such as Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick, Mariah Carey, Jennifer Lopez, Kim Basinger, Ron Howard, Martin Scorsese and Alec Baldwin.

He's also a renowned author of six books and a video, "Teach Your Dog to Behave; Dog Training By Bash, DogSpeak, CatSpeak; Your Dream Dog: A Guide to choosing the right breed for you' ," StarPet, "How to Make Your Pet A Star," and a video and DVD "Teach your dog to behave" He's now busy working on two children's books for dogs and cats, CatSpeak for Kids and DogSpeak for kids.

Bash's clients are located all over the tri-state area. And if you don't live in his "neighborhood," his books will teach you how to train your dog at home. They are available at book stores and pet stores around the country and you can also order a specially autographed copy from his website at
