219 California Dog Trainers

Dog training is a process used to teach new skills and behaviors to a Dog, regardless of age. Whether you are intentionally teaching your Dog, they are always learning and they will invent their own rules if you don't set them. A good California Dog trainer can help set the appropriate boundaries and shape a healthy relationship between you and your beloved Dog.

There are numerous Dog training methods including basic obedience training to specialized training areas including law enforcement, search and rescue, hunting, working with livestock, and protection or guarding. Training may involve teaching a Dog to actively respond to commands or it may involve helping the Dog to better cope with stressful environments.
