I create training that fulfills your needs and transform your dog.  My role as a trainer and dog psychology expert is to provide you with the knowledge and approach needed to inspire your dog to do the right thing at the right time.  I am the trainer in the San Gabriel Valley who knows dog psychology and can teach it to you.

This is no cookie cutter training experience.  I customize my training and rehabilitation to meet the needs and abilities of my clients and their canines.  I also offer in home board and train where I care and train your pup while you are on vacation or just busy with life. 


Because each dog is different, I take care to approach each private training session based on your dog's temperament and what will work best for YOU. We begin each training program with an evaluation of your dog child’s behavior and history and then create an appropriate training plan to cover your needs and expectations. No two training sessions are alike.  You will see immediate changes in your dog's behavior after one lesson.  What is amazing to my clients is how simple it is to communicate what you want from your dog when you know how.   All I ask in return is that you remain open to learning a new way of relating to your dog and practice what I teach you.  


Board Train:  Typically, 3-4 weeks is what most board & trains require, followed by privates and group classes.   Taking new clients January 2020.


Private Consultation/Training:  These consultations will take place at my place or yours, depending on the situation.   Taking new clients January 2020.


Puppy Training, Positive Imprinting, Proper Socialization


Puppy training begins the moment you bring your new puppy home. I want to teach new owners how they can influence and shape the behavior of their growing puppy in a positive and fun atmosphere. Whether or not you are enrolled in formal training, you are still teaching your puppy through your behavior in everyday life.  By not consciously teaching or not setting limits for your puppy, you are setting up conditioning that may lead to future behavior problems. Puppy training is designed to teach parents to better understand their puppy’s needs, establish effective communication, curb behavior problems, and to show owners how to properly socialize their new puppy to new people, animals, places and things.


Our puppy program places a heavy emphasis on setting limits that your puppy can understand and on proper socialization to assist your puppy in the transition into your home and lifestyle. It is the first 4 months of a puppy’s life that is most critical. It is in this period that most puppies develop up to 90 percent of their attitudes toward people, other animals, and their environment.  My program also addresses your individual puppy allowing you the one-on-one opportunity to ask questions that apply specifically to your situation.


We cover the following topics in session:  Problem-solving ideas for housetraining, chewing, play biting, proper dog play, introduction to the leash and more.

Think you are ready to experience formal training, but want to learn in a small group format?  Group training provides everyone with the opportunity to learn along side other members in a friendly and safe environment.  In my classes I teach dogs self regulation, social skills and obedience, in that order. It does you no good to have a dog that can sit, if he can't stop barking because he never learned how to relax around new people and other dogs, in public.  I coach people how to read, lead and enjoy their dogs. 

Courses:  Difficult Dogs, Reactive Dogs, Timid, Shy Dogs.  Obedience & Social Skills for Young Dogs & Puppies.  Structured Pack Walks.  Search & Rescue, Agility. Remote E-Collar Off Leash. Canine Good Citizen certification.

We offer field excursions for your dogs to provide them with structured exercise, socialization and positive imprinting.  We pick up your dog and arrange for your dog to have an outdoor field excursion with other like minded dogs.  We do hikes and walks in beautiful settings like Lacy Park, Debs Park, Arroyo Seco and Garfield Park.  These excursions are on leash and designed for friendly dogs.  

Please contact us if your are interested in getting your dog signed up.
