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.

About Dog Training in Inglewood, CA

Training Fun Fact #1

Does your Basset Hound have an eye condition, but refuses to sit still for their eyedrops? Luckily, you can learn a few tricks that can help make this trying task a little easier. One of the best ways to give your dog eye drops is by sitting behind them and applying the drops while they're looking away, as approaching the dog from the front can make them extra anxious. You can also try getting your pup to rest their chin on your knee. If all else fails, try restraining your dog with a harness or leash. 

Training Fun Fact #2

Your pooch probably likes to chew on things; however, sometimes their favorite chew toy can be your expensive furniture. Thankfully, there are ways you can teach your dog not to chew on your furniture. This training may take a couple of weeks but will save you lots of money and stress in the long run. Try using chew toys from a young age as a distraction from enticing furniture. If this method doesn't stop doggo descending on your brand-new sofa, try spraying it with something terrible tasting and non-toxic. Blocking your doggo and using sharp commands such as 'leave it' can also stop your pup ruining your stuff.

Training Fun Fact #3

Teaching your woofer to open a door can be a blessing and a curse, but its a fun party trick nonetheless. This trick can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks to master, depending on your pup. Try tying an old rag or t-shirt to the door handle so your pooch can get the hang of opening the door. You'll no doubt want to use treats and clickers to help reinforce Fido's actions. Before you know it, your canine compadre will be letting themself in without you hearing annoying scratches on the door.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Inglewood, CA

You'll undoubtedly be looking to sniff out the best possible classes for your four-legged friend when you decide to start training. There are lots of Inglewood dog trainers to choose, but before signing Tucker up for his first session, there are a few things you'll need to consider. 

Dog trainers in Inglewood tend to be pretty busy, so you'll want to book your chosen class a few weeks in advance. Additionally, many courses will make you pay a hefty deposit, so be careful not to miss any classes, as you could find yourself out of pocket.

Generally, private dog trainers in Inglewood charge a lot more than group classes do. Private lessons around Inglewood differ significantly, with some businesses quoting $350 for three classes, and others over $1,000 for an extensive program. As mentioned, most of these trainers require non-refundable deposits, which can be as much as half the cost of the classes. 

Many dog owners would prefer to take their dogs to group puppy training or obedience classes, which are much more affordable and will help your pooch socialize. Inglewood group training courses cost anywhere from $120-$175 for a six-week course. Obedience and puppy training classes cost roughly the same amount, and you can even book your hound in for advanced sessions if you want your hound on their best behavior. 

If you think these classes won't seem like a good fit for you and your furry friend, or you require more flexibility than group courses offer, look at booking a session with anInglewood dog trainer through Wag! These once-off hour-long classes cost $60 each, roughly half the average price of sessions across Inglewood. This lower price means you'll have more cash to splash out on treats for your pooch. Trainers with Wag! can also personalize their classes, in case your pupper has any specific requirements.

Going Off-Leash in Inglewood, CA

Unfortunately, there aren't any off-leash dog parks situated in Inglewood; however, there are several parks in nearby neighborhoods where your pup can run free. Before heading to any nearby dog parks, make sure pupper has up-to-date vaccinations.

There's one off-leash dog park in neighboring El Segundo, called El Segundo Dog Park, which is perfect for testing out your pup's new training. El Segundo Dog Park features two enclosures, one for large, energic mutts, and one for small, elderly, and shy doggos. All dog owners are required to keep their leash to hand, to avoid any nasty confrontations. 

Another nearby off-leash dog park can be found in Redondo Beach. The Redondo Beach Dog Park features two large off-leash areas for small and large dogs, where you can test how your dog handles being around lots of different sights and smells. If you worried about how Fido will cope, book a session with a dog trainer through Wag! to brush up on some socialization skills.
