“Playful & Fun Learning for Dogs and People <3”
I am primarily a dog trainer and people teacher & I only use science based, positive reinforcement training methods. I love helping people connect with their companions & create a harmonious home together. I have been professionally walking, training, boarding, and connecting with dogs for 8 years. I also love to take photos and videos! I am comfortable with all shapes, sizes, age, special needs, medical conditions, and anxious, shy, or other unique personality types.

“See you on the dog walk!”
Hello! I’m Maria, I have had way more experience from my first years of walking dogs. I started back in 2018, only 18 years old and trying to make some money with doing something I love. Wag! Had opened many opportunities for me, and I have since moved on. To think that I had only started with such a small business of walking. I am now a dog trainer! Certified to help your pups for about a year now. If you’re ever interested in learning more with me, I’d be happy to educate. Thanks!

Have you ever heard of the Ganaraskan? This small dog is a relatively new kid on the block as far as dogs go and was developed in Canada. Their lineage includes the Poodle, English Cocker Spaniel, Bichon Frise, and Miniature Schnauzer. As you can see, this is quite the combo and makes for a smart little pooch. They are lively, yet can be calm when they need to be. They excel at therapy dog training, which goes to show the parental lines are candidates, too.
Are you looking for the ideal dog for hiking California trails? Look no further than the Weimaraner. This dog was bred to spend hours working outside, and they still have this innate trait. Train them gradually to be able to endure the longest of hikes. If you are in the sun, though, remember your furry companion needs sunscreen just as much as you do. And don’t forget to hydrate when exercising.
Canines have an incredible field of vision. They have a peripheral view that surpasses human ability. However, when it comes to central vision, people have the upper hand. Still, dogs are far superior to humans when detecting motion. This is why canines excel at sports and are also quick to give chase when a woodland critter runs past! Train your dog to not chase squirrels to prevent your pup from trying to escape from the yard.
Are you ready to start your dog in the wonderful world of dog training? Beyond obedience, there are many fun activities to involve your dog in. Once they have basic commands and socialization down pat, they can join fun clubs like rally, agility, and barn hunt.
If you are thinking about starting your dog in group dog training classes in Burbank, expect to pay about $150 for a 4- to 6-week course. Attendance every week is the key to having your pupster succeed. Missing a class often means that your dog cannot keep up with their canine classmates at the next lesson.
Looking for a more individualized approach? In-home private lessons in Burbank are a popular choice. Prices vary from $75 to $175 per hour, but additional fees for travel time may be added on. Often, a consultation is necessary so the trainer can determine the lesson plan.
Many pet parents opt for board and train, where their pooch is sent off to doggy boot camp to learn the ropes of obedience. The cost ranges from $1500 for a 2-week session, to $4000 for 3 weeks. Puppies who attend a board and train class will be taught not to nip and jump, how to sit for grooming, place training, and more.
A lot of pet parents prefer to train alongside their dogs so they can continue the instruction beyond the class. With a Burbank dog trainer, your favorite four-legger can learn with you at home for rates starting at $57 per one-hour session on average. Connect with the best local trainer for you to set up a lesson tailored to the needs of your dog.
Or, book a digital dog training session and save some time and cash. Digital training sessions range from $27 to $33 on average per 30-minute lesson. You'll receive a final quote for your service when you choose your trainer.
Burbank is known as a doggy haven. Why? The community is tree-lined, providing optimal shade when out for a promenade. As well, the gorgeous and consistently sunny weather makes restaurant patio visits a favorite pastime of pooches and people alike. Some spots even have patios dedicated just for the pups! To be allowed in all of the pooch-approved venues in the city, have your dog vaccinated for rabies and wearing an up-to-date dog license tag.
Hiking trails with spectacular views are a big draw for Burbank, too. Wildwood Canyon Park is one of the most popular; when you and Fido reach the top, beautiful views of Burbank and Los Angeles await. Bring your binoculars as this pretty destination is home to flocks of birds.
Take Fido for a car ride and head to sunny Santa Monica. Lovers of flight and planes will be thrilled to watch the air traffic at Airport Dog Park. It can be dusty and noisy, though, so if your dog is timid of noise, choose another location.
Instead, picture the afternoon playing with Fido in the sun and surf. Rosie’s Dog Beach in Long Island is the ideal outing for energetic pups. A section of sandy beach is designated just for four-legged water lovers. Your furry buddy can run in and out of the sea as much as they want since this stretch of beach allows for off-leash play.
Did you know that the famous dog from the Benji movies was rescued from a dog shelter in Burbank? The early films starred Higgins, thought to be a mix of Miniature Poodle, Schnauzer, and American Cocker Spaniel.
It’s true that movies, TV shows, and the stars that act in them often influence the popular dog choices and, of course, in Burbank that rings true. Walking about town are famous celebrity-influenced doggos, too. The lively Chihuahua is one of the top dogs spotted. After all, they are little dynamos and divas!
The Collie, made famous by the intelligent and beautiful Lassie, is another dog who visits the salon and spa in Burbank. Collies were once herding dogs and still have the urge to chase the family cat now and then. They are also known to be brave and very smart.
The French Bulldog is a favorite of celebs all over, and this amicable dog is making a name for themselves, too. In fact, performing and showing off is one of the charms of this compact pooch.
With a coat and eyes to melt even the hardest of hearts, the Portuguese Water Dog is a star, too. If you love sports, this athletic breed is for you. They’ve got webbed paws that help them to swim and the quick mind needed for excelling on the agility field.
No matter what breed your fur-child is, from designer dog to adopted mixed breed, every pup deserves the gift of dog training. Look to the Wag! platform to book a customized lesson for your very special dog and start the fun today!
