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!

About Dog Training in Coronado, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Dogs love to explore their environment, and that includes all four seasons. Colder air allows dogs with a moderate to thick coat to enjoy frolicking in the snow. Come summer though, you may find the same snow-loving dog laying in a cool corner trying to escape the heat. If you have a pool in your backyard, remember that your dog is adventuresome at heart and can’t be around the pool when unsupervised. When you are ready for a swim, though, have fun teaching your pooch to jump in the pool to cool off.

Training Fun Fact #2:

Fireworks are a noisy occurrence that can give your dog quite a fright. The loud bangs and whistles that fireworks can create may be traumatizing to canines. It’s not uncommon for a pooch to run away in fear and become lost due to disorientation. Keep the fireworks for people-only gatherings and, instead, thrill your dog with a gift and teach them how to open the present themselves!

Training Fun Fact #3:

What is better than cuddling with your pooch in front of the television? Not much, we say, and we bet your pupster feels the same way. Until you mention a walk, that is! The average exercise requirement of a large dog is a couple of hours per day. Before settling down in front of the telly, be prepared to play games and go on plenty of walks. If you find time tight, hire a dog walker to give you a hand.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Coronado, CA

Is your pup barking in excitement every time you mention dog training lessons? There are fantastic options for training in Coronado, allowing you to get your four-legger started on the way to perfect behavior in all situations.

Take your furry buddy out for a game of fetch in the backyard while you ponder the best scenario for their personality. A group atmosphere is just the ticket for dogs that like to be in the company of other dogs and show confidence when in a pack. The price for dog training classes in Coronado ranges between $85 and $110 per course, which typically last between 4 and 6 weeks. Remember, weekly attendance is a necessity so that your pooch does not fall behind the other dogs in knowledge and the ability to do the required tasks.

Board and train is another option. It’s often called boot camp, and that is because the training is done every day. Your pooch will head off to the trainer’s facility or home for a period of a week to a month or even more. Individual lessons take place each day. Prices vary depending on what is taught. Some instructors offer specific courses like therapy dog training and Canine Good Citizenship. As well, you can send your pup off for the basics. Your dog will learn early-level commands and be taught not to nip or jump. A consultation will be done so that the trainer knows the hopes and expectations you have. Expect to pay an average of $1500 to $2500 for 2 weeks of away-from-home lessons.

Private lessons range in price from $85 to $110. Depending on the instructor, you may be asked to take Fido to the trainer’s facility, or they will come to you at home. If your barkster is timid or finds it hard to focus, private classes may be the answer. 

If you need private in-home training for your furry BFF, look to the Wag! app for the solution. Coronado dog trainers with Wag! are ready and enthusiastic, and willing to work with you and your dog at a time that suits you best. Work alongside your pooch for one on one dog training at just $60 per hour-long session. Chat with the best local dog trainer for you, pay in-app, and get started. It’s that easy!

Going Off-Leash in Coronado, CA

Living in Coronado is a beach lover’s delight, whether you are two-legged or four-legged! Being close to San Diego, this beautiful part of the state has the best of both worlds for Fido. Whether heading into the city or relaxing on the beach, knowing the rules for dog ownership and safety is a must.

Doggos out and about in Coronado have to be licensed, and it’s required that your dog’s ID and licensing tag be on their collar. The rabies vaccine is a necessity, and proof must be shown when registering your dog. Dogs have to be on a leash and are permitted in most areas unless signage states otherwise.

Well-behaved canines are welcomed in specific areas of the beaches and can be off-leash. Pack up gear for the sand and surf and head to Coronado Beach, where there is a section reserved just for furry water hounds. In fact, off-leash fun is encouraged here, and dogs can run in the surf all day long. Be sure to bring an umbrella to shade from the sun and plenty of water to drink. The sand can get hot for Fido’s paws, so be ever-aware of that.

If you are looking to spend some time in the shade, grab Fido’s leash and head over to San Diego and trek the Marian Bear Memorial Park. This trail offers a respite from the city and is not overly busy. You will run into the occasional biker along the path, so keep your dog leashed and take the opportunity to practice some of the commands learned in training, such as heel and sit. Bring your camera along; the views of San Clemente Canyon are exceptional.

Dog Training in Coronado, CA

Coronado has plenty of dog-friendly shops and restaurants. It’s a resort town, so there will be lots of chances to meet other pupsters while out and about seeing the sites. Take your dog to relax on a pooch-friendly patio after an afternoon at the beach. Well-behaved dogs are always welcomed! Ensure that your furry companion knows their table manners to make the outing a success.

What other types of dogs will you see on the beach and in the cafes of Coronado? In general, the big breeds reign in this end of town. Dog owners in the Coronado and San Diego neighborhoods have chosen the Labrador Retriever as their favorite companion. The Lab is a water-loving breed and should have no problem swimming in the salty waters of the California coast. Don’t let your pooch consume too much water from the ocean, though, as it can dehydrate them. Instead, bring a collapsible water bowl and fresh water on all outings.

Two other large breeds top the list of popular dogs. The German Shepherd and the Golden Retriever are often seen trekking the trails and playing in the parks. The Golden is an athletic dog and quite capable of getting involved in a game of soccer or football. The German Shepherd is a champ when it comes to sports, too. But don’t forget that mental stimulation is just as important as a physical workout when it comes to dogs that thrive on using their brains. Train your German Shepherd to bring in the groceries, and they’ll be thrilled with the task.
