“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 ever own.

About Dog Training in Hermosa Beach, CA 90254

Training Fun Fact #1:

If you have a protective pup, it can be tricky to get them to accept strangers, especially when they come into your home. Within a couple of months, you can train your canine compadre not to be scared of strangers. Give your pupper a safe space they can go when people come over, so they don't feel threatened. Teach anybody coming in your home not to engage with your dog, and over time, get visitors to give your pooch treats so they associate strangers with positivity rather than negativity.

Training Fun Fact #2:

 Fetch is a fun activity and a great way to wear out your four-legged friend. But what if Fido won't chase after their ball or bring it back? Within a month, you can make your dog a fetch expert. By encouraging your pooch when they pick up the ball and giving them a treat when they bring it back, your dog will soon learn the basics. If your hound refuses to bring the ball back, go to walk away, so they come to you rather than vice versa.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Have you ever seen a pupper do a backflip? Athletic hounds can learn this amazing trick in less than a month! Bring your fur-baby into a large open area, stand behind your dog, and offer a treat high above their head. You'll want to be standing with one knee slightly bent, so your pooch can use this to kick-off and flip over. Once your mutt starts jumping on your leg to reach the treat, give them praise. After mastering this, stretch the treat out further from your body, so your pup will have to arch their back. With some perseverance and constant practice, Fido will eventually perform a backflip!

Average Cost of Dog Training in Hermosa Beach, CA

 Hermosa Beach is a popular area for dog owners, with plenty of sunshine and nearby dog parks for you and your pooch to explore. If you've got a new pup, you might want to brush up on some training exercises to make sure they grow up to be the best pupper they can. With so many classes for your fur-baby to attend, finding the right dog trainer in Hermosa Beach can be a challenge.

You might prefer to attend one-on-one lessons with your doggo. There are a few private trainers located near Hermosa Beach. Private dog trainers charge an average hourly rate of $70 to $175 on average, making this a pricey option.

Many pup parents opt for group classes over private sessions. This training option is an excellent way for you and your dog to make new friends. Group puppy training and obedience programs cost anywhere from $125 to $450 for a 6- to 8-week course. While they’re much less expensive, you won't want to miss a class, so make sure you have time to attend a class at the same time every week. You’ll also want to reserve your spot in advance, as classes fill up quickly.

You might find that none of the classes in your area are suitable for your canine compadre. If so, check out some of the Hermosa Beach dog trainers available on the Wag! platform. Trainers on the Wag! platform can provide one-on-one, in-home training in the comfort of your home! You can book a dog training session 7 days a week, and the dog trainer will work with you to tailor a program that suits your dog’s needs for just $57 to $63 per hour-long session on average. Alternatively, Pet Caregivers on the platform also offer 30-minute digital dog training sessions for an average price of $27 to $33.


Going Off-Leash in Hermosa Beach, CA

Hermosa Beach is a small city that doesn't contain any off-leash dog parks. However, there are several in adjacent Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach. Before taking your pooch to any park, you should make sure their vaccinations and microchip information is up-to-date.

The Redondo Beach Dog Park is a superb place for your canine companion to burn off some energy. The park has two large runs: one for small and one for large doggos. These sizeable dog runs are perfect for practicing a few tricks with your pup, as they're generally less crowded than other parks in the vicinity. 

TheLive Oak Park Dog Run in Manhattan Beach is also an excellent park for dogs in training. The park's dog run features two gates in case your pup is known to bolt. It's also great for skittish pups, as only 10 dogs are allowed in the dog at one time, meaning your hound will have plenty of space to play.

Dog Training in Hermosa Beach, CA

You’ll find dozens of dog trainers on the Wag! platform within a few miles of Hermosa Beach.

Dog trainers on the Wag! platform have experience working with an array of different breeds. Chihuahuas are one of the most popular breeds in Hermosa Beach.

Whether you have a Chihuahua or a Great Dane, it's always a good idea to enroll your four-legged friend in a few training classes. The Wag! app boasts a variety of trainers waiting to help your pup grow, so book a class with a superstar trainer today!
