ECS Dogs is absolutely the best training company you can purchase for your dog. Unfortunately, I had used four different training companies and had no luck. Some of them came highly recommended, but their training methods did not work for “Bentley”. Most of their methods were “train by rewarding”, which works good with some issues, but not with the more critical issues, i.e.; like your dog running away, chasing other dogs, the come command, constant barking, etc. When your dog runs into the street and nearly gets hit by a car, I believe you need a more serious and advanced training company like ECS. The trainer was always prompt and on-time, and if he was running late, I always received a phone call or text giving me notice. I was also rather nervous about the training collar, but the trainer put me at ease and explained to me how it worked, and also picked the appropriate collar that my dog needed. He also had me try the collar on my hand so I could feel the vibration. The training is not a one day fix, it is over a period of time. The more time you spend with your dog the less time it takes for the dog to learn. My friends and family can’t believe the difference in my dog, Bentley. I was extremely satisfied with the training and would highly recommend ECS Dogs to anyone having difficulty with training their dog.

Dog training saves lives, and Holly has what it takes to help dogs and their families develop a bond that will keep everyone out of trouble! Our dog has a great temperament but a mind of her own, along with a strong prey drive (that may extend to smaller dogs, as she has bitten one before and lunged at others). Holly has helped us get our dog into a mindset where those distractions are not overpowering. We could not be happier to know that our dog will be able to be a safe and loving part of our family. She worked wonders with our dog, and I'm confident Holly has the skill to handle more extreme cases. Worth every penny and then some!

Gene is polite and well versed in the area of dog training. So far we are in the puppy class and hope to progress to Protection training. He cares for his own dogs and the dogs of others. Couldnt recommend a better dog trainer in the area. So far all his predictions were correct about our Belgian Malinois. Droopy ears no longer droop. Hire him. You wont regret it.

Sheila helped us train our Beagle. She came twice a week and took Zoe to the dog park where she helped her socialize, taught her basic commands and worked her out. We also left Zoe with Sheila when we were out of town for a week; I'd not hesitate to do that again. Zoe loves Sheila and her dogs! I'd recommend Sheila to anyone needing help with training or dog sitting. Great job, Sheila!

There is no question that every dog is different. This is why I don't apply one dog training philosophy to every dog and owner I teach. When I train, I take many philosophies into consideration, while always staying within the positive training realm, and then tailor the training session to what works best for you and your dog. Tailored Dog Training is owned and operated by Ally Lantis. Located in Concord, California, she holds dog training classes at Newhall Park in Concord, as well as conducting private sessions at people's homes. See the training page for more information on pricing and training methods used.

We came to Focused Canine Academy for help with overexcited reactivity when seeing other dogs. Nicole has provided us with knowledge and tools to keep our pup relaxed and focused. She offers multiple techniques and helps determine the best method for your dog. Nicole is not only a great dog trainer but an awesome coach for humans too! She is very personable and provides feedback and advice to strengthen the communication between you and your dog. Training sessions were fun and never felt rushed. Highly reccomend!

Welcome! For private dog obedience training in your home, help for an out-of-control puppy, adult behavior modification, house training, manners, excessive barking, aggression, watching dog alert, biting, puppy management, object guarding, running away and kennel/dog run design, we can help you. K9Instructor.Me Dog Training serves San Francisco County, San Mateo County and Santa Clara County. My Philosophy My name is Robert Linton. It is my goal to help you create a relationship with your dog built on mutual trust and respect. Your dog is a member of your family and should be treated as such. All dogs benefit from a leader who is kind, fair, and consistent. Good leaders teach manners and insist on polite behavior. When you have established yourself as the leader, your dog will strive to respond to your direction. As a positive trainer, I believe in using dog-friendly methods that engage a dog's natural temperament, abilities, and drives. When training is rewarding, dogs want to participate and learn, they also retain more. Why Customized Training? Every dog is a unique individual. Some are shy, some are energetic, some are dominant, some behaviorally challenged. During the consultation, I consider such factors as your dog's temperament, breed, age, sex, general health, and history, and use this information to create a customized training plan that addresses obedience and behavior concerns. Techniques and tools can be adapted to suit individuals or situations as needed. Even the youngest members of the family can be involved! My Background I bring my extensive experience in obedience training and behavioral consulting/modification of 25 years and a genuine enthusiasm and sincere love of dogs to the training process. My interests are family companion animal training, behavior modification, and holistic health/nutrition for canines. Ask for Robert.

Special features include bone-shaped lawns for the large, medium and small dog outdoor play yards, whereas indoor play yards are climate controlled and equipped with special rubber matting for your best friend to frolic with other dogs, all within a professionally supervised setting. Boarders will also be allowed to socialize with the daycare canine clients for a full day of fun and play in addition to a quiet, comfy place to sleep through the night. The all-indoor boarding section will host 60 dogs in a climate controlled, 24-hour-alarm-monitored area. Purchase and pack a supply of your pet's medications and special food or treats, if any, ahead of time. The Doghouse provides Natural Balance Original Ultra at no extra charge if you prefer. You may also want to pack a familiar toy for your dog's stay, but don't bring his favorite in case of possible loss. Rates include boarding packages for multi-dog families and discounts for extended stays. Pre-paid daycare packages are also available. Please call or visit our website for more details. Temperament testing and up-to-date vaccinations (including parvo and rabies) are required for boarding and daycare. Bordatella must be up to date within six months. You must ask this of your vet. This will ensure a safe playful atmosphere for all dogs and concerned dog owners especially commuters wanting to utilize the doggie day care.

We carry top-of-the-line dog food and training supplies. If you need something we don't have, ask us. We can probably get it. Gifts for dog lovers will also be available in the retail shop as well as making it possible for customers to purchase the same type of equipment used throughout the facility such as crates, bedding and toys. Aunty's Grooming and Self Wash is located within the facility, along with scheduled training classes, making us a one-stop shop for your canine needs. We have a very convenient location for those heading to Reno, Tahoe, Yosemite and southern California. Hours are Monday-Friday, from 6:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon and Sunday from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Remember: It is never too early to make vacation reservations! Millions of Americans are expected to travel for the holidays this year, but only a fraction of them will be taking the family pets. Just like with your favorite place to stay, book early. The Doghouse is where your dog wants to be!
