“I Use Gloves and my Own Leash 4 Your Protection”

My goal: To be the dog walker/ dog sitter that I always wish my own dog had. I’ve had great fun jobs with dogs: training, photographing, caring for and now walking. My favorite part has always been getting to know each unique dog’s personality and figuring out what makes them happy, comfortable and confident and becoming a trusted friend to them.

Hi there! My name is Chloe and I am a third-year marine biology student at UC San Diego, but my love for animals extends well beyond the confines of the ocean! You can’t name an animal that I haven’t owned, trained, or both— dogs, cats, horses, birds, any rodent or fish you can think of! I’ve worked as a pet sitter, walker, caretaker, and trainer since I was 9 years old, and my experiences have made me comfortable and confident with every kind of dog out there, whether pure-bred or pure mutt. As a dog owner myself, I know that you want to give your pet the very best, and I’ll do my very best to make sure they get it! Hope to see you soon!

“Dogs are my kind of people!”

I have over 20 years of experience owning, caring for and training many breeds of dog. I graduated with a BS in Zoology because working with animals has always been a passion of mine. My previous work as a veterinary technician has given me the insight required to properly care for and respect each dog’s individual needs. Dogs hold a special place in my heart, so I’m thrilled to have a job that gives me the opportunity to make them smile everyday.

Hi! My name is Tara Dehdari and ever since I was little I would take care of dogs. I started off with taking care of my Dad's coworkers friends dogs. While they would work I would watch their dogs. Then as I got older my neighbors would ask me to watch their dogs for two-three weeks while they would go on vacation. I would play with the dogs, walk them, feed them, clean up after them, and etc. I became the neighborhoods dog walker, and/or dog sitter. I have dealt with all dogs, small and big, puppies and adults. I love dogs!

“Dog training isn’t only for dogs”

I am a graduate of the Dog Training Academy for dog trainers in San Francisco and obtained my certification. My method is through positive reinforcement and never causes pain to the dog in any way. Dogs are highly social. Although they are different, they have needs just like us and they must be met. I will show you how to achieve a balanced dog. We all want a healthy happy dog! If your dog requires it, i can help your dog get along with other dogs and people too, if you request of course.

About Dog Training in Chula Vista, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Is the hot sun creeping in the window, making your dog pant from the heat? Teach your dog to close the curtains when they are looking for a little cooldown. Your pupster has got what it takes to learn this tricky task. Start with teaching them to tug and then transform that into a gentle pull of the curtain. Now they are made in the shade!

Training Fun Fact #2:

If you have birds making a meal of your favorite sunflowers, have Radar on the lookout to scare them away. You’re hoping the plants will grow six feet tall, and with a little training, your dog can help make that happen. Try the Friend and a Decoy Method to make the learning extra fun.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Dogs love to follow a scent, and you can make this skill a sport for your pooch. Dogs zig and zag and follow a straight line – whatever it takes to keep the scent fresh. Start the lesson off with a trail interspersed with food, allowing your little barker to vocalize as much as they want. Do they have what it takes? Joining a tracking club is the next step.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Chula Vista, CA

Is your furry BFF having issues with heeling on the leash when on a walk? Are they timid when another pupster passes by? There are excellent options for helping your dog get over these minor bumps in the road.

Play tug of war with Radar while you ponder dog training opportunities in Chula Vista. Shy and introverted dogs come out of their shell when they train one on one with a private trainer. In-home private lessons in this pretty town will cost around $85 to $110 per hour and may have a travel fee tacked on if your trainer has to drive any distance.

Group lessons in the city range from $150 to $175 for a 6-week course. The classes are typically an hour long and teach your canine kiddo everything they need to know to be the best-behaved dog on the block. “Sit” and “stay” are essential commands that every woofer should know, and these will be covered in class.

No doubt, you agree that your pooch is worth the money and the effort, and it is important to know that consistency is part of training your special friend. That’s why it’s crucial that you find a trainer you like and one that can work with your schedule.

For just $60 per one-hour session, in-home training with Wag! offers you both flexibility and the chance to customize a lesson suited to your pup’s personality. Download the Wag! app to chat and pay securely and easily. Dog trainers with Wag! enable you to train right at home when it suits you and Radar best.

Going Off-Leash in Chula Vista, CA

Being the Lemon Capital of the World, this lovely city is a sight for pups to see when the lemon trees are in bloom. Not to mention festival time, when all of Chula Vista is out and about celebrating the lemon.

Get your dog ready to party by making sure Radar is licensed and vaccinated. Chula Vista asks that you be “part of the solution,” and spay or neuter your dog to keep the overpopulation of pets under control. After all, every canine citizen deserves a safe and happy home.

Most dogs in California love the sun and the surf. Why not head over to nearby Coronado Beach, one of the best beaches for four-legged water lovers? Canines can frolic off-leash, and burn off energy running along the shore. Don’t let your pupster drink the salty ocean water, though. Bring along plenty of fresh water to drink for both you and your dog.

How about driving to sunny San Deigo and Cadman Dog Park? It’s the pawfect place to socialize because it’s pretty popular with local dogs. You’ll have to train your woofer to have excellent recall skills before arriving, however, because this canine hangout is not fenced. If you’re looking for pointers, chat with a local dog trainer to get all the help you need.

Dog Training in Chula Vista, CA

This town may be all about the lemons, but it’s also all about the dogs. The people of Chula Vista pride themselves on a clean and friendly city and call on all dogs and owners to do their part in keeping this pretty town sparkling. As a reward for the hard work, dogs are invited to Imperial Beach for the annual surf dog competition. 

It’s a dog’s life in Chula Vista, for sure! What kinds of dogs do you see when the surf’s up on the beach? The Dalmatian, with their beautiful spotted coat, is a fan favorite at this end of town. They love to run and are keen on going for a jog when you are!

The Pembroke Welsh Corgi is a star for sure and doesn’t mind being in the spotlight at all. They may be short in stature but are big in personality.

Running right alongside the Corgi is the ever amicable Pug. Who can resist the wrinkly face and bright, friendly eyes? Small but stocky, the Pug likes to make their own way in the world.

No matter your preferred breed of dog, they are happiest when they feel confident and loved. Help your favorite four-legger put their best paw forward by enrolling them in lessons with a dog trainer with Wag! today.
