About Dog Training in Garden Grove, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Is your curious dog tall enough to get a great view of the counter or tabletop? Teaching a dog to not counter surf is possible, but you’ve got to work to do your part, too. Keep counters clear of dog-approved snacks that are just too hard to resist. Teach your long-legged furry pal the “off” command and enforce it every time an attempt to peruse the counter is made. 


Training Fun Fact #2:

Most dogs love a crate and consider it a cozy den, or a spot to go to for relaxation and quiet. To introduce a crate to your dog, start by feeding them in front of the crate and eventually moving their bowl inside it at mealtime. You don’t have to feed your pooch in the crate furever moving forward, but it is a great way to allow them a positive association with it.


Training Fun Fact #3:

Though some want to teach their dog to not bark when the doorbell rings, others encourage it. If that’s you, there are proper ways to go about the training. Reinforcing the bark, giving a treat, and practicing the scenario are steps that prove effective. Many dogs are territorial and love to be given the job of warning that a visitor has arrived.

The tiny Chihuahua and Chihuahua mixes are favorites in this part of the state. These canines have big-city attitudes and love to show their stuff, whether walking along Hollywood Boulevard or playing on a sandy beach. If it’s a day for the shore, watch your pup’s paws on the hot sand and remember to bring along an umbrella for shade.
