Marine Corps Veteran and passionate about animals, I combine my diligent, hardworking nature with loving care for your furry family members. Every adorable furry friend has a unique personality that I love getting to know! As a volunteer with two animal rescue organizations, foster mom, and trainer for several rescue pit mix pups, I am familiar with a wide variety of breeds. I strongly believe that most negative animal behaviors occur when the animal has pent-up energy so ensuring a good walk makes both you and your furry one happy! :) When I'm not volunteering or Wag walking, I’m “Mom” to my two cats, Kida and Thai. I am a fun-loving, respectful, and dependable college student who is pursuing a medical degree while currently registered as an EMT. I can’t wait to meet you and your little buddy and to create a lasting friendship with both of you!

About Dog Training in Fremont, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Have you just adopted an older pooch? Giving them time to adjust without pressure for cuddles and instant companionship is essential. Depending on their background and previous training, they may need to learn simple skills like learning to walk on a leash. The correct sized collar and proper weight of leash are two important factors in the puzzle. You do not want the whole process to be overwhelming.

Training Fun Fact #2:

It may seem that your dog wants to eat everything in sight. If this is the case and he won’t stop even with training to not eat everything, a veterinarian visit may be in order. Some dogs have a condition called pica, where they eat strange objects like rocks and huge clumps of dirt. Diagnosing a deficiency typically stops the behavior.

Training Fun Fact #3:

You’ve got to love the Papastzu. They are a sweet and spunky designer dog, resulting from the matching of a Papillon and a Shih Tzu. They are known to be both laid back and lively, and loving yet independent. They are so cute that they may take over the household if not kept in line with dog training. The Papastzu does have determination and will try and try to catch a treat on their nose if that’s what you ask them to do.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Fremont, CA

Dogs are social beings, just like people are. They love dog training – the excitement of learning something new and gaining confidence, that’s just what the average pooch adores.

Where do you start looking for dog training in Fremont? It all depends on what you have in mind for your furry BFF. Do they have the basics, and you want to add more skill to their repertoire? Or does your dog need to learn leash manners right from the beginning? 

If your dog enjoys a crowd, enrollment in group lessons may be the answer. Be prepared to pay between $120 and $220 for between 3 and 6 weeks of instruction. Leash your pup, choose a high-value treat, and head to class for a ton of fun.

Dogs that are timid or not yet ready for crowds can be instructed with private in-home lessons. Fees will vary, and there may be added costs if the trainer has to come any distance. It’s worth the expense because your pup gets the individual attention that will turn them into an ace obedience student. Prices average around $100 to $200 for a set of classes that will see them graduate with a ton of knowledge.

Some pet parents want a trainer to take over the teaching of everything from how to heel to potty training. This alternative is called board and train and can cost around $1250 for about 10 days. Pups of any age head off to boot camp in the trainer’s home or at a nearby facility.

Is the thought of spending a night without your dog daunting? Are you not ready to let them mingle with big dogs just yet? Look to the Wag! app for information on how to book a Wag!-approved lesson for your canine kid. Connect with a trainer, customize your dog’s first lesson, and make a date. At $60 per one-hour session, it’s a steal!

Going Off-Leash in Fremont, CA

The Fremont area of California is stunning, to say the least. With nearby neighborhoods like Mission Valley and Parkmont, picnics with an incredible backdrop will become the norm. What pet parent and dog can resist that? Before heading to beautiful green spaces like Mission Peak Regional Park, make sure your dog’s license is visible on their collar and vaccines are up to date.

Are you looking to meet other happy pups along the trails? Take a drive to Alameda Creek Regional Trail. This spot is a must-do on a weekly basis, according to Fremont pups. This winding hike hugs the creek, and if you are lucky, you’ll cross paths with a horse or two. Fido can be off-leash but will need to have manners and a solid recall so you can call them to move off the trail. Horses have the right of way, and given their majestic size, it only makes sense.

Right in the heart of Fremont is an exceptional space for all well-behaved pooches. Lake Elizabeth Dog Park is enclosed for safety, and offers two separate areas, one for mini mutts and the other for larger dogs. Enjoy the views of both Lake Elizabeth and the Mission Peak Hills. This is a park Fido will be barking to come to after every training session!

What types of dogs do they train in the Fremont area? Pet parents have a few favorites. Retrievers are popular for their loyal personalities and friendly characters. The Golden Retriever is also admired for their awesome coats. Get your furry BFF used to the grooming process when they are young, and you won’t have any issues keeping them looking their best. The Golden has a thick coat and will need to be brushed often. 

The Labrador Retriever is at home just about anywhere and is adaptable and happy go lucky. Give them plenty of exercise, along with mental stimulation, and they’ll be content. The ideal activity for them is catching a ball and bringing it back to you.

Other popular Fremont pooches are the intelligent Poodle and the spunky French Bulldog. They adore the great outdoors just as much as the next doggo, so plan to give them lots of play sessions at the local park. The Poodle loves a challenge and will excel at competitions in tracking, confirmation, and obedience. The Frenchie will keep you busy and needs a pet parent with energy to spare.
