“I will make your dog sit and listen”

I love training dogs. I spent 5 years in the circus and make dogs sit, lay down, roll over, dance between your legs when you walk and many other fun things. It takes time but I can help you create the best behaving dog you’ll ever own.

I love to walk everywhere, and taking your pups along with me is one of my passions! Since I was 13 years old I have been walking dogs and pet-sitting.

About Dog Training in Arcadia, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Don’t let your furbaby bark up the wrong tree when it comes to leash manners. A calm and orderly dog is a pleasure to walk, but one that pulls and lunges is a menace. How to teach your dog leash manners? Sometimes retraining and starting back at square one is required. Use the methods stop, reward, and correct to teach your dog that pulling just isn’t acceptable.


Training Fun Fact #2:

Is your pupster a bundle of energy that just won’t quit? This is often the case with young, hyperactive dogs. Don’t get discouraged and don’t punish. Instead, channel that energy into something good. Train your furry companion to be a rescue dog. This will challenge them mentally and physically, and you’ll have a working partner who never gives up.


Training Fun Fact #3:

Adopting a Cairoston and not sure what to expect? You will soon be the pet parent of a bundle of fun whose lineage stems from the Cairn Terrier and the Boston Terrier. A blend of playfulness and seriousness, this pooch can sometimes be protective. Socialize them when they are young to allow them to show their cute side all of the time!


Average Cost of Dog Training in Arcadia, CA

Arcadia is a pooch-approved place to live. Why is that? Because dogs are treasured canine citizens who love to walk the tree-lined streets and revel in the beauty of the mountain backdrop.


With so much to see and do here, you’ll want your pup to be the perfect example of canine good behavior. That’s easily accomplished in Arcadia


If you are looking to join an obedience class, you will pay about $125 for a month-long course. Training typically starts off with puppy classes. Your pooch may climb the ranks all the way to advanced obedience. You can even consider competition one day. Flyball, agility, and obstacle course competitions are all a blast for pups who like to play.


For in-home, private training, budget around $150 to $175 an hour. With this type of instruction, your train right alongside your favorite four-legger. This is an excellent way to form the loving bond that all pet parents hope to have with their furry charges. It also gives you the tools for practicing after the lesson is done.


Does your schedule rule out attending a same day, same time group class? Are you concerned that private training is too pricey? This is where dog trainers with Wag! can help. Team up with a trainer on the Wag! app to teach your dog everything they need to know! Starting at rates as low as $60 per one-hour session, it’s affordable, and in-app messaging makes the whole process of booking a breeze.


Going Off-Leash in Arcadia, CA

Get your dog prepared for daily promenades by having them vaccinated for hepatitis, distemper, and rabies as per city requirements. Keeping your pooch safe from serious diseases is a necessity. Walks on trails and mountain paths teeming with wildlife are part of life in Arcadia, so it is best to be protected.


Which trail to hit first? Altadena Crest Trail offers just the right mix to make a walk fun. With variations between paved surfaces and dusty track, this excursion is described as a “pawsome” time in the fresh air, with lots of scenery. Cyclists and horseback riders enjoy this space as well. It’s a great time to practice leash manners taught by your pooch’s favorite Arcadia dog trainer.


 Silver Moccasin Trail right in Arcadia is the kind of trek to take on once you and your athletic pooch have trained on a few less challenging hikes. You’ll need an annual pass but the good thing is, you can hop on and off this trail at various intervals. Expect to traverse boulder fields and dense forest, along with a few canyons in between!


To make every walk with your woofer a wonderful one, always go prepared with fresh water, pooch-approved snacks, and waste bags to pick up after your dog. Then, every walker behind you gets to experience a pristine trail, too.


Dog Training in Arcadia, CA

All Arcadia dog trainers on the Wag! platform are obedience savvy and happy to share their knowledge with you. They are pet parents, too, and know the value of a well-trained dog. Whether you want a series of lessons or a booking of 60 minutes, dog trainers with Wag! can make it happen.


What types of dogs do the trainers own? Well, fan favorites range over different sizes and shapes of canine! Take the Siberian Husky, for example. These dogs are agile and thrive on exercise. A vigorous jog through a mountainous trail on a cold morning is their cup of tea!


In local dog parks, it is highly likely you’ll come across the Chihuahua and the Chihuahua mix. These spritely mini-mutts are game for fun in the great outdoors, too. They need socialization from a young age, and a park with a separate enclosure for petite pooches is just the place to meet “furever” friends.


The Boxer is a noble-looking dog who can turn their serious look into a dog-happy grin at the sight of their leash and a tennis ball. Games like fetch are great ways to exercise your pupster right in your own yard.


Whether you are on a hike, hanging around the dog park, or grabbing some exercise in your backyard, a happy pooch is the best kind. Taking your dog to training classes is a way to give them an outlet they enjoy. Connect with a local dog trainer today and see your furry buddy shine!
