Introduction: We are a professional pet care service, specializing in dog walks, behavioral training, in home visits, & overnight pet sitting (dogs & cats). We have been serving the South Bay since 2002 and have won Daily Breeze’s South Bay’s Best Award 5 times! We look forward to meeting you & your furry family members! Dog/People Training: My approach to dog training is behavioral in nature. My job is to show you how to make sure that your dog views you as the leader. If your dog thinks you're in charge, then he/she will listen to you. This is the essence of a good relationship with your dog(s). I will walk you through various situations and provide you with leadership exercises that will allow you and your dog to practice your respective roles. Your role is to lead. Your dog's role is follow the leader. This is inherent in the DNA of canines. Dog Walking and Pet Sitting: We take great pride in providing the best pet sitting and dog walking services from Playa del Rey to Palos Verdes. You will always meet your sitter prior to the start of any service and the initial meeting is free of charge. We strive to keep the same sitter with you and your pet in an effort to build and maintain a strong bond. In the event that your sitter is away for travel or just under the weather, we have many excellent sitters who are ready to fill in as needed.

Dog Training

Brian is fantastic! In 5 minutes he had our dog walking with him, and in 10 minutes she was walking with Brian and his dog! She isnt fond of strangers and hates other dogs but she loves Brian and Kaya!

Dog Training

I just got a german Shepard huskie mix named Brownie and she’s only 2 months! Although I’ve had dogs in my past and knew what to expect, this time I chose to get some guidance because she’s gonna be around my 8 month old baby boy! Brian came and i immediately felt how cool he was lol.... he’s really calm and collected and I feel that’s perfect for coming into unknown places and interacting with different fur baby personalities!! As soon as he got to my house he started training us not the dog and I loved that because I needed to know what to do when he left ! When he came in contact with brownie he got familiar with her and vice versa... and then he started to correct her, everytime she did something she wasn’t supposed to he corrected her, and not aggressively but so calmly.... he taught me so much and I’m so excited to work with my pup now because he helped me understand her a little more !

] fouind a dog trainer, although I haven't worked with him just yet. Would have given 5 stars if I had been given more than 2 pros to choose from. Both are very good trainers, 1 was just way over my budget. The one i chose is too, just I can live with his fee. Good helpful app. Saved me alot of time.

Dog Training

Brian is very knowledgeable and professional. He knew exactly what to do for my dogs behavioral problems and showed us how to be better leaders. My dogs behavior changed in the first five minutes of her interaction with Brian. He was very personable and easy to work with.

Brian was excellent working with my dog. He also showed me techniques to get and keep her attention, and keep her calm while working with her.
