“Welcome to Paws In Play!”

I'm originally from Washington D.C. and now a 9 year California resident. I started in San Francisco in 2012 where I owned a successful pet company. I moved to Los Angeles in 2018 where I have continued to walk and train dogs. My expertise is with defensive or aggressive dogs. I help families learn new skills to manage their behaviors. I’m looking forward to helping the pets of Los Angeles stretch their legs and keep up with the hustle and bustle.

“There is no such thing as a bad dog”

I have had a deep love for dogs all my life. For the past five years, I have turned that love into my full-time profession. During my time as a professional dog trainer, I have found a real passion for working with dogs that are labeled "aggressive" or "difficult". I specialize in dogs with behavioral issues; reactivity, phobias, and separation anxiety. I’m a CGC Evaluator and have taken courses in animal behavior at Duke and the University of Edinburgh.

Hi! My name is Mackenna, and I’m a dogaholic. In the past, I’ve worked at an animal shelter and at a dog day care, where I got a lot of experience with many different types of dogs from all walks of life.

About Dog Training in Agoura Hills, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Did you know that Border Collies are the busiest dogs ever? They are hardwired for work and constant action. Pet parents of this breed have advice for those who have super-energized dogs: amp up the fitness! Enroll your active family addition in extra-curricular sports like dock jumping and scent tracking. Busy the brain and tire out the body for a happy and content pooch.

Training Fun Fact #2:

Dogs have an incredible sense of smell. Putting this innate trait to good use makes absolute sense and gives the eager to work canine a job to do – which they love! Detecting gluten, for example, provides a dog with a powerful sniffer an important task to do. Teaching your tail-wagger to distinguish scents is the first step to gluten detection training.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Do you have a dog who doesn’t know how to play with you without getting nippy and even aggressive? Teaching them manners is possible. Arm yourself with toys for distraction and hide a treat or two in your pocket as well. Distract them from the aggressive play each time they cross the line between nice and slightly nippy. Be sure to exercise your pooch a lot every day. A tired dog will play more calmly.


Average Cost of Dog Training in Agoura Hills, CA

Looking to train your dog to have manners, so they are welcome wherever they go? With Agoura Hills being such a pupperific town for pooches, you’ll want to bring them along at every opportunity! 


Start your canine sidekick off on the right paw by teaching them basic commands like “sit” and “stay.” This can be easily accomplished with private in-home training. In Agoura Hills, you can hire a trainer for between $100 and $175 an hour. Sometimes the instructor will require a consultation before starting training, so expect extra fees for that. Group classes will cost around $150 for a 4 to 6 week session, and involve a weekly commitment. Lessons typically build upon the previous week, which means regular attendance is essential.


But do same day, same time group lessons work for your schedule? Can you keep a weekly obligation? Not all training clubs have the staff to offer make-up classes, so this is an essential factor to keep in mind.

Find a flexible option with a knowledgeable trainer by booking on the Wag! app to teach your pupster right at home. Agoura Hills dog trainers with Wag! are ready to train when you are, so you can enjoy every minute of teaching your dog the ropes. For just $60 per one-hour session, your pup can learn at home. Chat and pay on the Wag! app to set a date and time for the first lesson.


Going Off-Leash in Agoura Hills, CA

Is your pooch four months old? Once they reach that age, it’s law that they are registered and licensed in Agoura Hills. You’ll need to show proof of vaccination against rabies to obtain the license, so see the vet to get that done and ensure that your pooch is in excellent health.


Your four-legger is now ready for off-leash enjoyment at pooch-approved parks! Give your well-behaved dog the freedom they deserve by letting them run in Simi Dog Park. Just a hop, skip, and doggo jump from Agoura Hills, this park is a puptastic destination that every dog wants on their beat. Three acres of good times await, and with separate spaces for dogs big and small, every pup feels at ease here.


Is your dog a trekker? Satisfy their love of sniffing and exploring by heading to Wildwood Park Santa Rosa Loop. It’s a poochie haven fur sure, with over 4 miles of moderately challenging trails. Your dog does need to be leashed for the duration, but that’s just a minor detail. This outdoor adventure offers both you and your tail-wagger a chance to climb some hills for pawsome views! If your dog is older, this trail may prove tough. In that case, a stroll around the neighborhood will do just fine.


Dog Training in Agoura Hills, CA

Is your dog trail ready? How about attuned to good behavior on neighborhood streets? Dog trainers in Agoura Hills are equipped with the know-how to get your dog in shape for socialization and fun! Local dog trainers will teach both you and your dog basic obedience commands, and lots more.


Doggos in Agoura Hills are at the top of their game when it comes to dog training. You’ll see furry pooches of every size at the local dog park. From the German Shepherd to the tiny Yorkshire Terrier, smart canines want to get moving in this picturesque city! 


The portly and often-comical Bulldog enjoys exploring hills and valleys. Despite the sometimes opposing appearance, the Bulldog is a loyal and good-natured dog. They’ll be keen to explore but will want to keep the trekking sessions short and not too strenuous!


The Pomeranian is a perky dynamo who loves to let you know they’ve arrived. They’ll announce everyone else’s arrival, too! The Pom is a vocal pup, and they don’t miss a thing! Take them on a spin around the block, and they’ll make you proud.
