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?  The key to changing your dogs behavior, is understanding WHY they behave the way they do. Based on modern science, our fear free methods, are proven to get results. We teach owners how to better understand their dogs behavior and also the skills needed to effectively communicate with their dogs. Training is not like software that can simply be downloaded it Training is a process which requires practice, consistency and clear communication but it can also be fun! 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. Serving Hollywood, WEHO, Los Feliz, Studio City, Sherman Oaks and surrounding areas. *Travel rates pay apply.
