Maggie the goldendoodle practicing her sit, stay and lie down commands at a busy park full of real life distractions. This strengthens her impulse control while earning rewards and having fun. We also used a long line leash to practice a reliable recall (come/here).
Play and exercise are pillars of your dog's health and wellness. Fetch is a fun way to exercise your dog that is low impact on you. On days you can't get out for a long walk or even using it to take your dog's energy level down before you start your walk can be helpful. Fetch is a great way to blend exercise and training. Incorporate obedience commands like sit, stay, come and drop it to make fetch a more controlled game. Another tip to keep your dog motivated to play, is to have a special ball that only comes out when you are ready to play fetch with your dog.
These two sisters are getting some much needed sleep after working hard on their puppy basic training skills. We may think of puppies as having endless amounts of energy but they also need scheduled rest time to recharge.

Do Dogs Have Feelings?
The image above illustrates the feelings dogs actually experience— and those we project.
"With the same neurology and chemistry that people have, it seems reasonable to suggest that dogs also have emotions that are similar to ours. However, it is important to not go overboard and immediately assume that the emotional ranges of dogs and humans are the same."
To read the full article check out.
"We have now come to understand that dogs possess all of the same brain structures that produce emotions in humans. Dogs have the same hormones and undergo the same chemical changes that humans do during emotional states. Dogs even have the hormone oxytocin, which, in humans, is involved with feeling love and affection for others."
The #1 one reason I get calls for training is for puppy chewing or mouthing/biting. The answer is no, we can't not train dogs not to chew but we can train you to manage their natural behavior in a productive way. Dogs chew for a variety of reason.
1. It is normal for dogs to explore their world using their mouth
2. Chewing relieves pain from teething for puppies
3. It keeps teeth clean and their jaws strong
4. It can reduce stress, anxiety, boredom & frustration
This chocolate lab pup just completed our 4 session package. Her custom tailored training plan included basic puppy obedience, a strong recall and not running out the front door, loose leash walking and giving space to her senior sibling who often needs a break from her high energy. But the training doesn't stop there! To maintain that desired behavior, we have to stay consistent and offer clear communication with our pets.
Setting the tone for how you want your walk to go is important. Even before you leave your house, your dog should be focused, controlled and taking cues from your body language. The art of loose leash walking takes patience and consistency, alongside exercises that teach your dog to move with your body not just pull you down the street.
Crate/kennel training was key in transitioning Pico from the shelter to home life. Puppies need the structure and security as well as adult dogs that may be experiencing fear or anxiety. Crate training is helpful in tackling potty training, barking and destructive chewing. Sometimes owners feel bad using the crate or think of it as "doggy jail" but when you truly understand it and the potential benefits, it can become a great tool for training. The crate/kennel is meant to be a safe home!
Daffy, a 3 month old Golden Retriever puppy has mastered her sit, stay and holding eye contact in her own environment. Will she be able to preform them with heavy distractions? The next step is to practice her new skills outside to truly strengthen the obedience commands. With puppy or adult obedience training it is important to learn new skills at a low level and build up from there.

Roxy, a year old Alaskan Malamute has come a long way after her full training course. Here she is showing off her new skills at Home Depot.
Another successful shelter adoption story! Santa Clarita's animal shelter @castaicanimalslaco found this sweet boy the perfect home and he is thriving. With the dedication of his new owner and the help of @scvpetcare dog training he has transformed in his abilities. From being well mannered in the house, potty training, walking on a leash, interacting with other dogs and overall focus and impulse control. He is proof that hard work, consistency and repetition lead to reaching your goals. @ Santa Clarita, California
Jax the goldendoodle is too cute, even when he is stealing toys from the kids. He is very smart as well and breezing through his puppy training!
With all the spring beauty it's a great time to get your pets out and moving. Keep in mind warmer weather brings snakes out too. That is one reason it's important to keep your dogs on leash and on the trails.
When training a puppy we must think of every interaction as a learning opportunity. Ruby a 4 month old golden retriever is a quick learner!
Charlie and Maggie, 5 month old Rottweiler puppies practicing their basic obedience commands. Patience and control can be taught at a young age even though puppies have a short attention span. The key to success is short, positive and productive sessions multiple times a day.

One of the top requests of new training clients is wanting their pet to travel with them. Here are some helpful tips
- Crate training is a way to make your pet feel safe and comfortable. It's taking a little piece of home where ever they go.
- Getting your pet used to taking potty breaks on different types of substrate ex: grass, dirt, rocks, sand, bark, etc.
- Proper socialization with strangers, desentization to loud noises, and basic manner in public places. All great things to train at an early age
Can an old dog really learn new tricks?
Shilo a senior collie mix is proving that wrong. After just 4 lessons she has stopped lunging and growling at people, dogs and bikes.
Dandelyon the Saint Bernard has made tremendous improvements by the end of her training lessons. Her owner can now take her for walks in the neighborhood and local parks, visit public places and control her at the vet office. So proud of her and the hard work her owner has put in! @ Valencia Summit Park
Roy the healer enjoying a walk in his @ruffwear harness. I don't necessarily recommend this as a training tool but a lot of my clients love them. Comfortable for their pets and adjustable. Roy is a fantastic walker and well trained so this harness works great for him!
