Hi My name is Chris. I have been very lucky to grow up in a family that loves dogs. I currently own a pack of 3 ( 80 lb Goldendoodle, 20 lb Poodle mix, 40 lb German Shepard). My German Shepherd is a tripod ( only has 3 legs) and she is trained and certified for dog therapy. As a dog therapy team we visit senior homes, colleges/universities, and medical buildings. I have owned or worked with many different breeds ( Basset Hounds, Labradors, Bullmastiffs, Clumber Spaniel, English Bulldogs, Pit bulls, Airedales, Jack Russel Terriers, Poodles, Doberman Pinchers...) I enjoy walking dogs and training dogs. Thanks!

Doggos living near the sand and ocean breezes may be keen on learning to surf. Remember to always have your pooch don a lifejacket and start the training in calm waters. A backyard pool is ideal, with a graduation to a quiet lake, and then the shore comes next. Surfing is all about balance, so teach Fido where to sit on the board before you even get near a body of water.
Dogs that are food-oriented are often easy to train. After all, what’s better than a tasty treat? Have a handful of tasty tidbits in your pockets at all times and use them as a well-deserved reward. Does your pooch do a pawesome job at heeling when out for a promenade? If they need a little bit of extra work, use the Treat Lure Method, and your dog will be furrific at the task in no time.
Make the most of the sunny California skies by teaching your eager companion any number of outdoor skills. Agility, flyball, treibball, and even herding are excellent forms of exercise for the agile four-legger in your life. Herders learn commands like “come by” and “walk up” as part of their vocabulary. With a little repetition in training, your pup will help you bring the kids home in no time!
When you are ready to choose your Anaheim dog trainer, do a little footwork first to make sure you get a trainer that suits Fido’s personality and your training style.
Paying to train your dog is a well-worth-it expense that pays back tenfold. To have the best-behaved doggo on the block, think about how you want to go about the training process. If it’s group lessons you have in mind, expect to pay about $150 for 4-6 weeks of classes. Attendance is required every week so all canine kiddos can follow along with the lesson each class.
Do you work long hours and typically use doggy daycare to give your pooch a break from boring days alone at home? Some daycares will offer classes along with boarding. Another option is a board and train scenario, where Fido packs a bag of toys and treats, heading off to the trainer’s home or facility for intensive training. In Anaheim, this type of set up will cost around $1600 for a week.
Does your furry BFF have a few issues that need special attention? Does Fido need help gaining independence? Consider one on one training with private in-home lessons. Focus and lots of attention are two of the bonuses that come with training at home. Fees average between $100 and $195, depending on what your dog needs to learn and whether the trainer charges for travel time to your home.
Dog trainers in Anaheim are eager to work with your pup. Every one of them works with dogs because they love animals. Fido will thrive on the attention! In-home private instruction with a dog trainer with Wag! is the perfect way to set Fido’s tail wagging! Download the Wag! app to connect with a trainer. Book a lesson with rates starting as low as $57 to $63 per one-hour session. Alternatively, Pet Caregivers on the platform also offer 30-minute digital dog training sessions for an average price of $27 to $33. You’ll make Fido’s day!
Scenery and greenery are two highlights of beautiful Anaheim, and that’s why so many people living here own dogs. Four-legged companions can be seen all over town, and Fido cannot wait to join them. Before you become part of the Anaheim pack, there are a few things to know. All dogs in Orange County require a license, and the rabies vaccine is a must.
Ready to head out to one of Anaheim’s gorgeous parks? Fullerton Pooch Park is right next door, and it is the perfect place to practice socialization. There is even a special space just for shy, small, or senior dogs. They can enjoy the fresh air without rambunctious and fast-moving younger dogs rushing by.
Bellis Dog Park is in neighboring Buena Park. Although there is no separate section for big and small dogs, the enclosure is grass-covered and surrounded by a 22-acre community park. Take Fido into the enclosure if things are quiet; otherwise, enjoy a walk on one of the meandering paths in the park.
In the mood for an invigorating hike? Take your agile companion to El Modena Open Space for an afternoon of trekking. The terrain is hilly and will present a fun challenge to the dog who loves to climb. Do keep your eyes open for rabbits, snakes, and hawks. Some of the plant life includes a prickly cactus or two, so best keep your tail-wagger on a leash to avoid injury.
Anaheim and surrounding cities have a high pupster population, so be prepared to run into other well-loved dogs wherever you go! If your dog needs to learn how to behave in public, call on an Anaheim dog trainer for a few tips. They’ll be happy to assist!
Seen exploring local national parks and hiking the blue-green mountains are dogs of all shapes and sizes. From the tiny Chihuahua to the tall and strong German Shepherd, Anaheim has its share of canine citizens.
The Pug lives here, too, and being a compact little pooch can fit perfectly in a bike basket for days when you feel like biking to the beach! The active Boxer will prefer to run alongside the bike and won’t have any trouble keeping up.
Whether your dog is big or small, they all need to be trained. Look to Wag! for pawesome training, customized to the needs of your furry pal. It’s easy to book a lesson with the best dog trainer for you to get started on a lifetime of happiness!
