About

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!

About

Do you want a well-behaved dog? I am a Certified Professional Dog Trainer with over 15 years of experience. I am also a Registered Veterinary Technician with a special interest in Behavior. I offer Group Obedience Training, Private In-Home lessons, as well as Behavior Modification. I also have experience working with Service dogs. I use Positive Reinforcement methods for training, as well as Counter Conditioning and Desensitization methods for Behavior Modification. I do not use choke, prong/pinch, or shock collars. I believe in good leadership for your dog; your dog needs a good leader, not a dominate master. Teach your dog- instead of making him or her comply. Cooperation- not capitulation makes for a much better relationship, and makes your dog a better behaved family member. I believe in continuing education, so I am constantly attending symposiums, lectures, and workshops to keep updating my skills and knowledge, including an Internship at U.C. Davis Behavior Center. I also believe that as your pet's guardian, you too should educate yourself. You can have a positive relationship with your dog; let me help. My group classes are currently at $95 for a 7-week class, and my in-home private lessons and behavior modification start at $250 and up.

About

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!

About

There seems to be a great deal of misinformation out there about dog training. From the stories my clients tell me there are a lot of really bad dog trainers out there giving terrible advice. I have plenty of clients that have been to two or more trainers before coming to me that were unable to solve their problems. Do lots of research, ask lots of questions, read lots of reviews online before ever choosing a dog trainer! I AM THE ONLY TRAINER YOU WILL FIND THAT WILL GUARANTEE YOU WILL BE SATISFIED WITH THE SERVICE I PROVIDE. The first step in changing any dog behavior is to make sure your dog takes her lead from you. Once that piece is in place, you need to have someone that knows what they are doing show you what to look for in your dog's behavior and how to respond to it in a way that is going to reinforce the behavior you want and at the same time discourage the behavior you don't want. This is extremely difficult for most people and even many dog trainers don't get it right. The challenge is that every dog and owner is different and what works for one dog and owner doesn't always work for all of them.

About

Hannah watched my dog and my apartment for two weeks while I was on vacation in Michigan. Not only did she do a great job, she went above and beyond. When I came home, my house was cleaner than when I left it, and she had washed and groomed my dog FOR FREE! I ran out of dog food halfway through the vacation, but she had no problem going to the store and picking some up. My dog loved the food that she bought, and I still use it today! A+++ for Happy tails!

About

The Doghouse is Lathrop's premier dog care facility located at 3221 Yosemite Avenue. Dog owners and their canine companions will have access to top-quality professional boarding, day care, grooming and a cozy retail shop. 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. At the end of the long work day, owners will be relieved to find their usually hyper, or worse yet, bored, destructive pups tuckered out from the day's activities. 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!

About

Many consider me the number one dog trainer in North America because no one is getting better results with behavioral problem solving, especially with aggressive dogs. No one is getting better results when it comes to getting dogs to listen off-leash without shock collars.

About

We provide dog and puppy training from experienced professional trainers. We train dogs to fit your lifestyle. Our goal is to unleash your dog's hidden potential. We provide dog training that fits your dog and your lifestyle. We offer inboard services and custom training plans. Dogs thrive when they have clear boundaries and consistent communication; often, there is conflict in the canine-human relationship when the boundaries are unclear. Dogs, just like people, are individuals and need individualized lessons and training plans. In order for dogs to reach their highest potential, they need training plans that are fair, balanced and individualized. As trainers, we will assess your dog's learning style and the home environment to develop a training plan that will be uniquely suited to your relationship. We can help you unleash your dog's hidden potential through balanced and scientifically proven training methods, proper exercise and consistent clear-cut boundaries. We will help turn your unruly dog into a well-behaved canine companion.
