Gia is a beautiful Briard that came to us from Santa Clarita for service dog and obedience boot camp training. She was a little bratty and stubborn, but left the camp much calmer and much more behaved!


about this los angeles service dog training boot camp client

Gia is a beautiful Briard that was getting a little difficult for her owners to handle. She was not listening and becoming increasingly difficult to walk. She would jump on people repeatedly, pull on the leash, bark at people, and a little obsessed with jumping up and barking at birds! Her owners had initially gotten her to be a service dog for their son with Autism. They had purchased her from a professional service dog trainer that had eventually went bankrupt. They’ve  where left with a large bill and a dog that wasn’t trained.

We had spoken to them a few times, and it took a while to actually get Gia in for training. They had worked with other trainers and tried to get Gia under control, but where not able to. Unfortunately for us, when Gia finally came in for training, she was convinced that she did NOT have to listen to anything she was told to do. Nevertheless, once she was in for a few days, we could see that we would make progress quickly, and we did! Gia completed our two week service dog boot camp dog training program and she is back at home and doing well. Gia will need more service dog training in the months to come, but for now her and her owners are on the right track.

It is important if you are getting a puppy, young dog, or any age dog, to make sure and start with training immediately. Waiting to train your dog is never a good idea. When it comes to training a service dog, basic obedience and basic task training is paramount. As trainers, we start training our own dogs as soon as we possibly we can, we never wait! There is really no advantage to waiting. We typically recommend very induce and reward based training until your puppy is six months old. In some cases, with more pushy, tough, and dominant dogs, you can start putting a little pressure a little earlier.

Whatever the case might be, give us a call today so we can get you on the right path! 818-216-8960

Gia's los angeles service dog training temperament evaluation

This evaluation was given to Gia when she first came into training. Although we always guarantee we can train people’s dogs, we cannot guarantee that the owners are going to follow through with the training and continue to build on the training we have provided. If you really want to be successful with your dog, it is imperative that you follow all of the instruction that your trainer gives you!

The Briard /brɑːrd/ is an ancient breed of large herding dog, originally from France. A Briard-like dog appears in the illustrations in illuminated copies of Gaston Febus’ Livre de chasse (“Book of the Hunt”), written in the late 14th century. The breed became popular after the Paris dog show of 1863, after having been fixed with crosses with the Beauceron and the Barbet. During the First World War, the Briard was used, almost to the point of extinction, by the French army as a sentry and messenger, and to search for wounded soldiers. The Briard’s modern-day roles include police, military, and search-and-rescue work, as well as companion dog.

They were originally bred to herd and guard flocks of sheep, and they were often left to their own devices to accomplish their assigned tasks. This makes the Briard different from those breeds that only guard and those that only herd. The breeds that just herd are often smaller in size, agile, and swift of foot. Those breeds that just guard are usually larger and heavier. Briards were used in all types of herding situations, having the ability to learn many commands and fulfill the jobs expected of them. The Briard was most commonly used as a farm dog in the more crowded farming valleys of France, where row crops were grown. Sheep were allowed to graze the grass strips between crops and Briards were responsible for keeping the sheep moving along these strips, and preventing the sheep from eating the crops. The Briard moved the sheep daily from the farm to the graze areas and back again at night. At the farm, the Briard was the shepherd’s partner, helping with livestock chores. The Briard was also used to move large flocks of sheep in areas of France that had wide grazing pastures and mountain pastures in summer. The Briards were usually worked beside one or two other breeds to keep the sheep from straying and herd the sheep to the proper areas. At night, they were alert and vigilant watchdogs, protecting the shepherds and flock from wolves and thieves.

According to legend, a Briard fought a judicial duel with Robert Macaire to avenge the murder of its owner, Aubry of Montdidier. CharlemagneNapoleonThomas Jefferson, and Lafayette are all said to have owned Briards.
