At EveryDog, your pooch is sure to learn a lot, but also have fun while doing it! They practice a modern approach to dog training, using positive reinforcement to train your furry friend. Your dog will love coming to class because of their reward based system, which means treats for your playful pal! They offer classes from basic obedience (commands like sit, stay, and come) to desensitization and counter-conditioning (for behaviors like aggression, separation anxiety, and leash reactivity). Check them out for a pawsome training experience!
2. The Zen Dog
The Zen Dog will have your dog relaxed in no time! They focus on training as well as the relationship between PetParent and pooch. Unlike many other trainers, they do not use aversion techniques like choke chains, clickers, or treats. They aim to help you understand your dog’s energy and needs, while assuming the role of the natural leader. They offer both private custom in-home lessons as well as a basic training and boarding option. Plus, if you’ve adopted your dog from a shelter, you’ll get $50 off your first session!
At Pawsitively Perfect Pooches of Los Angeles, they believe that the best way to train your dog is by creating a positive relationship and mutual respect. Once this is accomplished, anything is pawsible! They offer group classes, private in-home training as well as pet sitting (with training brush-ups while you’re away) and a wide variety of services for the active pooch. They even offer pet photography sessions! Check out their website for more information on their training packages too.
