European Certified Dog Trainer Behaviorist

​Award Winning Government Honored Trainer


People  from all over all over Michigan and now California call him "The Russian Dog Wizard," a miracle worker or just "Vladae911" because he is able to help with their dogs, when others fail. Vladae is the grandson of the former USSR chief biologist who was conducting Pavlov-type research on farm animals. As a child, Vladae spent a lot of time playing, observing and working with his grandfather's animals. His first real teacher, who was absolutely mute, revealed his secret of dog talk to Vladae..


Vladae won his first local obedience championship in the city of Baku at age 12 with his first Siberian Husky, Berta. She was his first student and canine teacher in his native state of Azerbaijan. At 17, Vladae achieved first-degree national champion in Soviet Union OKD and ZKS, similar to European Shutzhund competition, with an Eastern European Shepherd, Mikie. It is like the American Superbowl of dog training. Later, he was honored to have as a teacher Nicholi Andrushkin, Soviet Union legendary chief master dog trainer/instructor for Customs dogs on the Russian/China state border.


In Moldova, a state in Former Soviet Union, Vladae went to school and became a Russian Certified Dog Trainer/Instructor/Behavior Therapist. Vladae graduated from a prestigious and private dog training school called, "Avante". "Avante" is in the state of Moldova in the former Soviet Union, and is run under the guidance of the National Cinological Association/Club of Moldova. Vladae studied research of academic Pavlov and other famous Russians. Some of this was unknown to the west. He also studied foreign scientists along with animal behavior researchers such as Peter Kropotkin, Konrad Lorenz, and others. He was also intensively coached how to train dogs for 12 different types of special training. During his 13 year professional career in the Soviet Union, Vladae trained hundreds of dogs for unique services for the Russian government, the Red Army and KGB, such as searching for leaking gas in broken pipes, delivering mail between the military ships, Customs dogs, bomb-sniffing dogs, border patrol, guard dogs, personal protection, search and rescue, sled dogs, and leader dogs.

Possessing excellent facility with languages, Vladae Roytapel has developed a special language for communicating with dogs, based on observations of the way dogs communicate with each other. As Vladae believes, “if you treat your dog like a human, in return they will treat you as a dog.” This exciting new development in human-dog communication involves mimicking the postures and sounds of dogs in order to simulate a dog-to-dog relationship between dog and owner. Coined “Doglish” by Vladae, this special language has helped countless dog owners communicate with their pets effectively and efficiently, enabling them to eliminate numerous persistent behavioral problems. nown as the “Russian dog training wizard,” Vladae Roytapel is Chief Executive of SoCal Dog Training, Inc., which has served Newport Beach and other Orange County communities since 2008. Vladae Roytapel’s firm provides in-home and group training for canines, focusing on common issues such as jumping up, destructive chewing, disobedience, and housebreaking problems. Vladae Roytapel is famously known in America for his incomparable knowledge on how to rehabilitate aggressive dogs.
