MIND BODY DOG
CERTIFIED, PAIN FREE, FEAR FREE, TRAINING SOLUTIONS - Los Angeles, CA
We love our dogs, but not always what they do. There are a lot of trainers out there but are they qualified and certified in animal behavior and learning theory?

We teach owners how to better understand their dogs behavior as well as the skills needed to train their dog using effective, fear free techniques. Training is not a software. We can't just download it and have it stick. Training is a process which requires practice, consistency and clear communication. Our job is to teach you how to effectively teach your dog, setting a foundation for a positive relationship based on cooperation, understanding, leadership and trust.
