  • Gentle Touch Dog Training

    (2 reviews)

    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.

  • NitsaTrains.com

    I am an in house trainer. I work on private one on one behavior modifications in the client's home. Unlike most dog trainers, my 53 years in dogs from obedience to show, I realistically train dogs. Not every training method works on every dog and basic obedience in a class only goes so far. My specialty is making obedience work with the family dynamics. Behavioral problems are based in the home. Owners are usually more of the problem than the dog. I help restore order and balance between dog and family.

  • The Doghouse

    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!

  • Out of the Dog House Now

    I provide personalized dog training specified to the client's needs from behavior issues to the seven commands, and other irritating issues. I customize the training to the dog's issues, and I get down to their level to help them understand what I want them to do. I have helped a dog who was abused in a previous home, got him acquainted with people and other dogs, and went from a scared and paranoid animal to a fun, loving, excitable, playful dog. It took a little over 4 months before I felt he was OK and good enough for him to go back to his owner.

Wagging Tails Training

(13 reviews)

Understanding each other is important in any relationship. Training helps you ask your dogs to learn what you want them to do without forcing them to do it. You and your dogs were born speaking different languages. With Wagging Tails Training, they will help you to better deal with each other. They offer group and private training for puppies, beginners, and intermediate and advanced dogs. If you need something that is tailored to your dog’s needs, they can help you with that. They provide a short 1-hour private training session to work on specific problems. The owner shares with us her love for the job.

What do you love about your job?

I love being able to help people and dogs better understand each other. Watching the relationship between a dog and its owner blossom with new understanding is amazing. Having my own business gives me the freedom to give the time needed to make that happen. It's so rewarding to help change an unsure, troublesome relationship into a happy, secure and trusting one.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I've always wanted to do what I do. Before I actually got brave enough to be out on my own full-time, I did side jobs while I worked for other people for years. Enough people, books and loved ones finally got me to just jump in with both feet. I haven't looked back once. I love working with dogs.
