“From Graduate school to Dog Walking!”

I’ve spent 1 year learning the world of professional pet care. It happened by accident - I got a chance to go back to school, not only to earn a master’s degree but to play volleyball. Unfortunately, I finished my degree injured and struggling mentally. Enter dog walking! I thought I would just try it out...turns out it helped me heal: movement, nature and a friendly companion. Then it dawned on me, growing up with all kinds of animals from fish to horses - I was built for this!! Yay pet care!

About Dog Training in Hawaiian Gardens, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

If your lovable mutt can't stand to be away from you, it can be difficult to leave them at home alone when you set off for work or to run errands. Luckily, there are ways you can teach your pooch to enjoy some time by themselves. It won't take more than a couple of weeks for Fido to learn the basics of crate training, especially if they're still a puppy. Get them used to the crate with toys and treats, and slowly build up the amount of time you leave your dog in the container alone. Before you know it, you'll be able to leave your pup to roam the house without any whining or barking.

Training Fun Fact #2:

All dogs will beg for a tasty treat if you give them the opportunity. Many owners who can't resist their four-legged friend's puppy eyes give their pooch table scraps from time to time. However, this behavior can become bothersome during a family meal. Over the course of a couple of months, you can teach Tucker not to beg anymore. While giving your hound the cold shoulder can be tough, it often yields the best results. The whole family will need to work together to ignore the dog's begging. You can do this by not making eye contact or paying them any attention during a meal. With a little patience, Fido won’t come to the table when its time for supper.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Farm dogs have a lot of uses, and if you live in an area rife with truffles, you can actually teach Lassie to sniff out these valuable fungi. Using your dog to sniff out truffles is much better than the traditional method of using a pig, as dogs are less likely to scoff down their findings. This skill can take a year to master, but it's well worth teaching your mutt. Use the find method to associate the smell of truffles with the command “find”. Let your pup smell truffles often, and take them to an area where truffles are commonly found. If your pup indicates they've found a truffle and starts digging, reward them with a treat. 

Average Cost of Dog Training in Hawaiian Gardens, CA

Despite being one of the smallest cities in the LA metropolitan area, there are plenty of dog trainers to choose from in and around Hawaiian Gardens. It'll take some digging to find the right one for you and your pupper.

In order to make sure you get the trainer you want, you should book training classes well in advance. The best dog trainers are usually very busy, and so you'll probably want to book a class at least a month before you expect to begin training. Many trainers, especially those who teach group training classes, require you to have up-to-date vaccination records before attending any sessions. 

While digging around for the best class for your pooch, you'll notice there are both private and group training classes available near Hawaiian Gardens. If you think your fur-baby needs extra attention, you might prefer to attend one-on-one sessions. The cost of private dog training in Hawaiian Gardens varies significantly and can cost anywhere from $70 to $250 per session. Private dog trainers are generally expensive, and most charge on the higher end of this range. The price does usually decrease after the first session, but not drastically.

Group puppy training and obedience classes are popular, as they help your pup make new friends and learn to obey commands with lots of distractions. They're also much cheaper than private classes. Group puppy training and obedience courses cost between $130 and $300 for a 4- to 6-week program. The main downside to group classes is you can't miss a session. Otherwise, Fido will fall behind their classmates, and you won't get your money's worth.

Although there are lots of Hawaiian Gardens dog trainers to choose from, you might not find any of them suitable for your canine companion. If you're running out of options, why not check out some of the Hawaiian Gardens dog trainers available on the Wag! platform? These trainers charge just $60 per hour, which makes it one of the most budget-friendly training options in Hawaiian Gardens. You can also discuss classes with your trainer beforehand, in case there are any specific commands or skills you think Spot needs to brush up on.

Going Off-Leash in Hawaiian Gardens

Due to its small size, there aren't any off-leash dog parks in Hawaiian Gardens where you can hone your pup's new skills. Fortunately, you’ll find several parks located in neighboring Lakewood and Long Beach. Many parks in the area require you to have proof of vaccinations before entering. Some also expect your pooch to be licensed with the city.

The Home Run Dog Park in Lakewood is one of the closest to Hawaiian Gardens. This park contains a grassy 2-acre dog run where your pup can frolic with their pals. Owners can keep watch and step in if their mutt starts to misbehave, making this park ideal for testing your pup's training. You can also walk your dog around the run's perimeter, which offers plenty of shady trees where your fur-baby can cool off.

Another great park for training your canine is Wrigley Heights Dog Park in Long Beach. You'll find a fenced-in dog run here where your pupper can mingle with other dogs. You can collect doggy bags at the park's entrance, and there are doggy drinking fountains in case your pooch is parched. This is a reasonably quiet dog park, making it an excellent place to bring Fido if they're a little shy.
