I am a proud dog parent of two; Lady, my 7 year old mini-dachshund and Coco, my 2 year old Rat Terrier/MinPin/Chihuahua rescue. I’ve lived with and cared for several dogs, big and small throughout my adult life and absolutely love the company and joy dogs bring. I’m an animal lover through and through - I’ll be celebrating my 3 year anniversary on a 100% plant-based diet in the coming months. I take excellent care of my dogs and often get compliments on how well behaved they are with other animals and people alike. I know how special and dear pets are to people’s hearts and take care of anyone’s pet like they are my own. I live within walking distance of several parks and am an avid hiker in the Bay Area, often bringing my dogs. My schedule is very flexible as I currently work independently in freelance film production and for a media strategies nonprofit from home.

“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 even own.

About Dog Training in El Segundo, CA 90245

Training Fun Fact #1:

Do you enjoy an active lifestyle? Are you looking for some fun and healthy outdoor activities that you and your pooch can enjoy together? Maybe you’d like to train your dog to run alongside your bike, jump over hurdles, or perhaps how to jump rope. Who knows? You might even want to teach your pup how to play football — now that sounds like a whole lot of fun!

Training Fun Fact #2:

If you’re preparing to welcome a baby into your family, you’re probably wondering how your dog is going to react to the new arrival. The good news is that it’s entirely possible to teach your pup to accept a baby. You may want to start by getting your dog used to a practice baby (a doll), or playing crying baby sounds so they don’t come as a shock in the future. Bringing a piece of baby’s clothing or a blanket home from the hospital before bub moves in can also prepare your pup for what lies ahead. Then, with careful management and monitoring when the baby arrives home, your pup will soon learn the right way to behave around their new sibling.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Some dogs need a little help learning the right way to act when meeting new people. Some need to master the art of greeting visitors calmly, some need to learn to curb their possessive behavior, and others simply need to learn how to accept strangers. Whatever problem you’re trying to solve, the key is to use rewards-based methods and make your training sessions fun. And if you need any help, you can always book an El Segundo dog training session for some expert advice.

Average Cost of Dog Training in El Segundo, CA

If you want to compare dog trainers in El Segundo, CA, there are several factors you need to consider. You’ll need to research the experience and qualifications of different trainers, find out what methods they use, and check for positive reviews from other pet parents. You’ll also need to find someone that both you and your dog are comfortable with, and who offers training at an affordable price.

Then there’s the matter of whether you want group or private training for your dog. Group lessons can be especially handy for puppy training and socialization, and they provide a relaxed environment where your dog can work on their obedience with lots of distractions around. They’re also cheaper than private training but will require a long-term commitment — you can expect to pay roughly $150 to $350 to complete a course and you’ll need to sign up for 4 to 6 weeks of classes.

But if your pup could benefit from one-on-one attention, you can always sign them up for private training. Private lessons mean the trainer is fully dedicated to the needs of your dog and your training goals. It allows you to work on your dog’s behavior at a time and place convenient to you, and means that your pup won’t be overwhelmed by a group environment.

Unfortunately, private training can be quite expensive. Many dog trainers in El Segundo charge anywhere from $100 to $150 per hour for their services, while some have even higher rates. You can sometimes get a discount if you book a multi-lesson package, but you’ll still need to spend a lot of money. 

Meanwhile, trainers with Wag! offer private training rates starting from as little as $60 per hour. That’s a 1-hour, in-home session with an experienced dog trainer and includes a customized training plan for your pup. If you’re looking for dog training that’s as affordable as it is effective, start browsing trainer profiles on Wag! today. 

Going Off-Leash in El Segundo, CA

If you live in or around El Segundo, CA, the good news is that there are plenty of excellent off-leash dog parks within easy reach.

One destination well worth checking out is the El Segundo Dog Park on East Imperial Avenue. This “pawsome” doggy playground offers two fenced areas, one of which is for older, shy, and small dogs. There’s ample space for your pup to run off some excess energy, while drinking water is also provided when they need to cool down.

A little further north, the Bluff Creek Dog Park is also well worth a visit. Located on Bluff Creek Drive, this much-loved park has separate areas for small and large dogs. There’s drinking water as splashing water for those pups that don’t mind getting wet, while ample street parking and shade are also provided.

If you’re planning on visiting these or any of the other great dog parks in the LA area, you’ll need to be sure your pooch knows all the basics of off-leash etiquette. For example, will your dog come when called? Do they know how to get along with other dogs? Can they be trusted not to jump on other people? Once your pet knows the right way to behave when off-leash, your dog park visits will not only be safe but also a whole lot more enjoyable.

Dog Training in El Segundo, CA
