William R Koehler was the Chief Animal Trainer for  Walt Disney’s Studio for more than 21 years. His professional experience dates back to Junior High School  days. 
A lifelong love for dogs, and the ability to put common sense into effective practice - these have been combined by Bill Koehler into training methods that make him a giant among dog trainers.

He was famous for being able to communicate with both owners and dogs. Over 140,000 dogs had been trained under his supervision since 1946, and at least  a half a million more were trained through the use of his 'Koehler Method' books for every Obedience and Guard Dog levels.
