We are problem solvers for people and their dogs


Francesca Tardue

Board Certified Dog Trainer / AKC Evaluator



My name is Francesca Tardue. I am a board certified trainer, AKC Evaluator with 10 plus years of dog psychology and dog training experience.


My unique approach to dog training is just as much about teaching your dog as it is teaching you! I am a family dog trainer specializing in reactivity, puppy development, AKC canine good citizenship, shy dogs and pack walks. My AKC Evaluator number is 91480.

I call myself a "dog coach" because dog trainer doesn't really do justice to the process. The training experience I provide is just as much about training the dog as it is about understanding and educating you as an owner.   

We are pleased to announce  our popular Group Packwalk is August  30, 2020! 

Check it out and registar on our Events page - to be published soon.



I create training that fulfills your needs and transforms your dog. 

Private Training

 Training and rehabilitation to meet the needs and abilities of you and your canine. Each training program begins with an evaluation of your dog's behavior and history, then an appropriate training plan is created to cover your needs and expectations.

Board & Train

Me and my team care for and train your pup while you are on vacation or just busy with life. This can be  followed by private sessions and/or group classes to work with you on how to implement the training.

Group Classes

Do you want to experience formal training, but learn in a small group setting ?  Group training provides everyone with the opportunity to learn with and meet like-minded dog owners in a friendly and safe environment.  

Pack Walks

Field excursions for your dog provide them with structured exercise, socialization and positive imprinting. We pick-up and arrange for your dog to have a field excursion in natural outdoor settings around Los Angeles and the San Gabriel Valley. 



Francesca teaches easy to understand principles backed by dog psychology. At the end of our two hour session, we were walking our dog comfortably and WITHOUT FEAR. Worth the money, highly recommended."
