Joseph Cinnante was born on the small Mediterranean island of Mallorca, Spain. His love for animals was sparked as a child while growing up around Dobermans, German Shepherds, and many other exotic pets. All it took was the thrill of working a dog in protection for Joseph to become completely enamored with canine psychology. On the weekends during his teenage years, when most kids his age were hanging out with friends, Joseph would dive into the world of working dogs. He saved money to pay for his travel to Europe in order to further his education and be around the worlds best trainers.
At the age of 22 Joseph quickly became training director for one of the world’s largest canine protection companies. At the age of 24 he owned and operated a police dog company in the Czech Republic. He has successfully trained, delivered and integrated high caliber protection dogs into homes and businesses for over 15 years. Joseph has also trained dogs for military and police k9 units internationally throughout his career.
In 2013 Joseph founded Advanced Canine Systems with the goal of providing the highest quality dog training to the general public. He has merged his experience and techniques into a successful training curriculum that has benefited dogs and owners all around the world. He continues to be an innovator in the industry pushing the envelope and setting the standards for specialized training, behavior modification, pet care and working dogs. He has an extensive track record in international protection sports and remains active competing internationally. Due to his success and his ability to teach others, Joseph has been called upon to give training seminars all over the United States, Asia and in Europe.
It has always been Joseph’s goal to open an all inclusive center for canine optimization and education. So in 2019 Advanced Canine Systems expanded it’s reach by opening the Sherwood Canine Club & Pet Resort located in Westlake Village, CA.
