Introduction: I am a professional dog trainer and behavior specialist. I love dogs and love to help people. I always try my best to help people to train their dogs and modify their bad behaviors. My goal is to train dogs to respect their owners. The basic commands of sit, stay, come, heel, and down are taught as well as impulse control and general manners around people and other dogs. It's very satisfying to watch dogs respect their owner and family members. My training is simple, and focuses on what your dog needs to bring out their best. I train dogs both on and off the leash using a balanced method. I offer private lessons and boarding training programs in the greater Los Angeles area. I will share training videos with you daily when your dog stays with me, and you will see your dog's behavior improve daily. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile. For more details on my background and service, please do not hesitate to contact me. I look forward to meeting you and help you with your furry companion.

Dog Training

Tony was an awesome trainer! We had just moved into a condo and our 8 month old lab pit mix was super hyper and barking at everything. We had to find a a place ASAP so our little Arlo wouldn’t destroy the house and annoy the neighbors. And walks were a nightmare! He would lunge in every direction and it was a workout just to take him out. I found Tony and he took Arlo within 3 days. Everywhere else was super expensive and couldn’t take Arlo in for a few weeks at least. We didn’t have that much time. After the 4 week program Arlo came back a changed dog! He became crate trained and is able to be in the crate for most of the day with no issues. Barking improved a lot and walks are such a pleasure now! I look forward to taking Arlo out on walks. We were sent daily videos and the improvement were visible in the videos. Even now months after we contact him with any issues and he helps as much as he can! Def recommend! Thank you Tony!

Tony is an amazing dog trainer. My puppy was so destructive and hard to train. I took him to a boarding place for six weeks and spent thousands of dollars but it didn’t do any good. I finally found Tony and I am so pleased with the results. My dog is super hyper and had potty training issues as well as obedience. After the four weeks with Tony, he became a different dog. He is so much easier to handle now and potty training isn’t an issue any longer. Thank you so much Tony! I really appreciate your amazing work! I highly recommend him to anyone who is having issues training their dogs.

Dog Training

I have been searching for over a month to send my rescue dog to a professional trainer but had no luck finding one available ASAP. I contacted Tony and he responded right away and took my dog the next day. She was attacked on the streets before coming to the rescue so she has trauma and confidence issues. She was very reactive on a leash and I didn’t know how to handle those situations. Tony helped her socialize with other dogs and gain confidence. She is doing a lot better and knows basic commands. She still has some things to work on and Tony has been helpful even after the program. He genuinely cares for the dogs and is available if you have any questions/concerns.

Tony was very easy to work with. He explained all the details about his methods and procedures. He taught my dog the basic core disciplines that was needed for me to reinforce my dogs continued training. It was worth every dollar! The bark collar is working great! I recommend Tony’s services for all dogs in need of behavioral therapy.

Dog Training

“The Dog Master” was amazing with our Labrador dog “Sailor”! Tony training and discipline for our dog was nothing but outstanding! Tony picked up our from our home in Los Angeles from his resident which is over 1 1/2 hours from his home. Tony first meeting with our dog was very educational and Tony has this love and respect for dogs. You can see immediately how he handles dogs and how they attach themselves right away. He has loving and firmness to handle the dog and we loved it! We had Sailor our dog on 4 week training and obedience. Tony was always well informed with his videos daily of what went on with Sailor’s training. We loved this! We learned so much from Tony and we always asked questions and Tony was very prompted and attention to detail of providing information. I’m Fact we went to his home to drop of some medicine for Sailor and I and my wife were so impressed with Tony dog accommodations with the dogs in a well vented and air conditioning garage with clean kennels and Tony attention to all dogs. Tony value his training and the love for dogs. We also like how Tony involves his young daughter in the training for the dogs. Family is always a plus for us, because we are a family! Tony brought our dog back home and gave us great and value information about part of continued training our dog to be successful in the dog’s way of understanding and performing the task which will be part of their normal life after 1 year or more to adapt their dog skills of what they learned. Since our dog, Sailor is 7 months puppy, we knew we had challenge especially each dog has a mind of their own. Tony really did what we expected and more some. Our Dog came back being the same dog, but is more calmer and more respectful to our commands and much easier to train. We see so much improvement on his behavior. It is less stressful for us. Tony taught us to be in control of our dog and we be the leaders and our dog be the follower and not give into our dog...meaning don’t let our dog teach us what he wants and not to show our downfall of our confidence and nervousness. Tony is highly a true professional and his trust in training our dog was superior and outstanding! We would use Tony again! People don’t look at the price or let it scare you, it the value and dedication and love for the dogs Tony has overall. We have made a good friend and Tony has always opened his family and his knowledge to us anytime we need to ask or need answers about our dog training. Tony will always be there for us. I’m fact I was so impressed with Tony professionalism and dedication and love for the dogs. I want to train with him and so I can be a dog trainer like him after I retire in a couple of years. Tony and family, thank you from the bottom of heart and your student Sailor for the best and outstanding dog training. We are very happy and pleased of the results from such a caring and thoughtful man who really love dogs. he put them first like they are his family! One more thing Tony fed my dog real fresh boiled chicken and now we will continue on his meal and feeding schedule because of Tony! Sailor enjoyed his schooling and treats and best of all the chicken! God Bless Tony for his service and professionalism, Top Notch #1 Dog Trainer here in Los Angeles. Highly recommend him and his services! you won’t go wrong with him! Sincerely, Kenneth and Hulya Lopez and Sailor Pumuk Lopez
