Our dog training programs

Dog training is an art! As artists, we all approach our work in different ways. The most important part in our case, is that you end up with the best result as possible. We take each and every case very personally, and we always want the best for our clients.

dog training PROGRAMS

There are different training programs for different people with different lifestyles. The truth is, all the programs work. The key is the relationship the owner establishes with their dog. What we mean is, you are going to have to put time in with your dog and the time you put in has to be the way we teach you. There is a saying that I believe to be very true… Practice does not make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect. As experienced professionals, we can read a dog very quickly and see what the owner is, or is not, doing with them. We know what the dog is capable of and we know when the owner is not following the program. As I stated before, there are no real “Dog Whisperers” there are simply a few simple tools you need in order to begin to communicate with your dog.

In most cases, we recommend our board and traing two week dog aggression boot camp training program. You can read more details about the program below. It is best to call us so we can get a better understanding of your dog’s aggression and explain what would be the best course moving forward. In some cases, such as when we cannot actually handle your dog without getting bitten, we may recommend an in-home private training course.

CAN MY DOG BE TRAINED TO BE A PROTECTION DOG!

It's possible that your can be trained to be a protection dog. However, your dog does need to have the character for the work and must have the right drives. There are also many different expectations that people may have for their dogs when they ask this question. Some people simply want a dog that will bark at people and scare them. Other people want a dog that will repel from a helicopter, jump through a ring of fire, tackle the bad guy, hand cuff the bad guy, and then drive the bad guy to jail.

​Dog Aggression Boot Camp, Van Nuys, CA 91401

Above is Pepper, in all of her bathing glory! Pepper is a really cool little Mini Schnauzer. She is super friendly most of the time, but she can get a little snotty with strangers and dogs. She is young, so my concern for my clients is that when their dogs mature, the minor aggression will turn into a problem. Pepper’s owner made a very wise decision to send her to our Van Nuys dog aggression boot camp training so we could start getting the aggression under control.

Pepper is back at home since finishing our Los Angeles dog aggression boot camp, and doing well. She is still testing her owner, but we are still working with the owner to make sure the aggression is managed. In many cases, dog trainer are able to handle dogs but the clients struggle. Obviously as professional trainers, we have been doing this so long that our timing is very accurate. Therefore, it is very important for a trainer to continue to communicate with his clients and make sure the client is supported. Dog training really isn’t that difficult, and there really is no reason for clients to fail.

Dog Boot Camp Training, Coto De Caza, Orange County

I have had the privilege of ​being welcomed into people’s homes for over 20yrs to train their dogs, to be trusted with their homes, families, and privacy. It has been an experience that has changed my life, in many ways. Most of my clients invite me in and treat me like family, as they know I will be training and caring for their dogs, that they also consider family. These particular clients are Bode Miller & Morgan Beck Miller. Bode is a six-time Olympic medal winner for team USA! https://www.americasbestracing.net/the-sport/2017-olympian-bode-miller-targeting-derby-trail-en-hanse Morgan is a professional Olympic volleyball player for team USA! http://www.teamusa.org/usa-volleyball/athletes/morgan-beck We trained Bode & Morgan’s first two dogs a few years ago, we worked very hard to make them happy, and it was clear that our hard work paid off when we were invited back to train their new dog!

Bode & Morgan are very nice people, and they definitely trust us with their dogs. Their dogs are very well cared for, and they do a very good job at enforcing the rules and boundaries. As you will find me preaching about quite often, the success of our dog training programs is primarily contingent on our clients following through with the program we lay out for them.

So yes, you can refer to us as ‘Celebrity Dog Trainers’, but we like to think that we treat all of our clients like celebrities!

Cindy, The Poodle Mix, Dog Aggression Boot Camp, Los Angeles 90042

When we picked Cindy up for our Los Angeles dog aggression boot camp, she was barking and showing very protective and territorial aggression. Cindy didn’t really want to engage in a fight with us, she simply wanted to warn us that she wasn’t comfortable with us being so close to her and her Mommy. I did see, relatively quickly, that she was going in and out of being nervous with us so close, and then getting a little dominant, almost enjoying what she thought was her controlling the situation.

It is very common for dog trainers, because many of them are controlling themselves, that they want to have all of the answers all of the time. However, even as a professional dog trainer for over 22 years, I can’t always put everything in a box, wrap it up in a cute bow, and hand it to my clients. What we do know is… how we need dogs to act, in order to keep them safe, the people around them safe, the dogs around them safe, the critters around them safe, and to make sure the big mean animal control office does not come knocking at our door!

Cindy is only about 50 pounds and not too difficult to get under control. I am very confident that, with our help, her owner will get her under control pretty easily; even though it was hard for her to walk her around the block before training. We have to keep in mind that other breeds, like Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Pit Bulls, and other large and/ or powerful breeds, are not so easy to handle. If you contact us for training, please be prepared to put in the work in order for training to be successful!

Those who put in the work will succeed, those who do not put in the work will not succeed, it’s that simple.

We are very proud to be offering dog aggression boot camp training in Hollister, Paso Robles, Santa Cruz, Los Banos, Solvang, Lompoc, Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, Atascadero, Morro Bay, Los Olivos, Monterey, Big Sur, Carmel By The Sea, Orcutt, Gilroy, and more!

Clint, The Handsome German Shepherd, Dog training norcal

Clint is an amazingly sweet guy and a truly handsome GSD. However, he did have a little aggression towards other dogs. As a matter of fact, if there were other dogs, he would not care at all what his owners had to say. In the process of not caring, he actually hurt is owner so bad, his owner had to have hip surgery.

We knew that Clint would needs some work. As a matter of fact, he is a very big and strong boy. Therefore, we had to take advantage of all the time we had with him, in order to get his training to the level we needed. We are happy to report that Clint is now home with his owners, and he is doing very very well! His owners were so pleasantly surprised with his progress and they are now able to spend the quality time with him that they always wanted to spend.

Train At A Young Age To Minimize Potential Dog Aggression Issues That May Become A Problem!

Getting your dog in for training at a young age will make a huge difference when it comes to shaping behaviors that may become problematic as your dog is maturing. We offer a dog aggression boot camp that your dog can enter when he is fully vaccinated, which typically happens when your dog is about four months old. When puppies are you, they are much easier to shape and mold, as opposed to when they are older, matured, and bad behaviors are very habitual. Some dogs that come in for training at older ages actually have a tough time with compliance.

Even if your dog is coming from a shelter or adoption situation, we highly recommend that you get him into training immediately! Most dogs end up in shelters because they have some behavior problem. Therefore, to let him come into your home with that behavior, may only be setting him up for failure. And, with over 3,500 dogs euthanized in our shelters every day, we definitely want to set all dogs up for success.

We have had many cases lately where people cannot even walk their dogs down the street because of aggression issues. However, after a couple weeks of dog aggression boot camp training, they are able to take their dogs almost any where that want! In all of theses cases, it is of the utmost importance that our clients reinforce everything we have taught correctly! If you do not follow through with the training, you will not succeed.

Dog Aggression Boot Camp Simi Valley, 93065

Dallas is a young German Shepherd Dog from Simi Valley that came to us with some dog aggression issues, such as barking at strangers, lunging at strangers, pulling on walks, and generally showing a dominant and controlling type of aggression.

Dallas was a perfect candidate for our dog aggression boot camp program. It was beneficial for us to get Dallas out of his home and into our program so that we could work with him every single day. In our current dog boot camp program, we only take a couple dogs at a time and we literally work with the dogs all day, with interval breaks throughout the day.

We are happy to report that Dallas is doing very well! We dropped Dallas with a two hour training session with his family, and we did a one hour follow up session about a week later. Dallas’ owners are now able to comfortably walk him with no aggression, he is now very manageable in the house, and he is a well mannered member of the family.

We are very proud to be offering dog aggression boot camp training in Hollister, Paso Robles, Santa Cruz, Los Banos, Solvang, Lompoc, Santa Maria, San Luis Obispo, Pismo Beach, Atascadero, Morro Bay, Los Olivos, Monterey, Big Sur, Carmel By The Sea, Orcutt, Gilroy, and more!

​Dog Aggression Boot Camp, Camarillo 93010

Charlie is a dog aggression case from Camarillo, CA that came in for about two weeks of training. Charlie was literally standing on her back paws and lunging forward on the leash when she was picked up for training. Charlie was very protective of her owner! Charlie spent every single day with Jeremy as he worked on her tolerance and impulse control. On her drop off and follow up sessions, Charlie had made great progress, going from practically not able to be walked, to walking nicely and not lunging or barking at people or other dogs. Charlie is a great example of what can be done with proper training and a dedicated owner!

Dog Aggression Boot Camp Studio City, 91604

Napoleon is a German Shepherd Corgi mix. He is a very sweet dog at heart, but he definitely has some aggression issues. Napoleon was entered into our Los Angeles dog aggression boot camp dog training program to minimize and manage his aggression.

Napoleon had actually bitten nine people, and had recently bitten the owner’s neighbor, which resulted in animal control getting involved. Although it took a little time to convince Napoleon to get on board with the dog aggression training, he actually ended up doing very well and being a very good boy. Once returned home with a couple training sessions, his owners are doing a very good job managing his aggression.
