Meet Augusto the Brazilian Dog Whisperer

Augusto de Oliveira the owner of Griffin Shepherd Kennels in Hyannis, Massachusetts and of coarse special in German Shepherd dogs.

Growing up on a farm in Brazil, Augusto acquired a knack for handling dogs. He personally owns six German Shepherds – Griffin, Harmony, Jenna, Priscilla, Hannah and Savannah and is frequently seen walking them with out a leash.

He said, “A lot of people like to compare me Cesar Milan, the dog whisperer from TV but I’m not. I have my own techniques.”

“My dogs do this because they know me as part of the pack. I spend a lot of time with them. I feed them, they can sleep in my room, I exercise them. I do everything with them.”

He lives at the training kennel and trains all breeds of dogs at his company, but specializes in German Shepherds.

He said: ‘We train all breed of dogs and a lot of people send them to us as puppies for training before they begin lives with their new owners.”

“Some people want to get a dog that’s already fully trained so the puppies live here until they’re older.”

“Often it’s people who are afraid that they’re going to fail if they get a puppy and they can’t train the dog properly themselves.”

“Or maybe they live in a small apartment and need their dog to have obedience training before their new family member moves in.”

“Sometimes it’s just people who want to enjoy a dog that is already trained.”

Augusto also claims to be able to guide up to 15 free-walking dogs at the same time, saying, “I start with the dogs on a lead so that they can get used to walking and gradually remove the leads one-by-one.”

“The dogs all know they must remain in the same position and not change the formation.”

“A lot of people are shocked; they can’t believe that so many dogs can walk through the city in a group, off the leash.”
