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.

“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 even own.

Hello. My name is Candace Seward. I grew up in a small town in Northeast Arkansas. I graduated with a BS in digital filmmaking from UCA in Conway. I just recently moved to California to pursue film but would also like to get a chance to meet some furry friends. I grew up around dogs and did a lot of training in a 4H club.

About Dog Training in Monterey Park, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Have you recently adopted an older dog? If you’re thinking of replacing their old, unflattering name with a new moniker that better suits their personality, the good news is that an older dog can learn a new name. There are several ways to teach your pooch their new name, including rewarding them every time you say it and regularly using the name throughout the day. Old dogs are more than capable of learning new tricks, so it won’t take long for your pet to get the hang of it.

Training Fun Fact #2:

If you’ve recently welcomed a gorgeous Golden Retriever puppy into your life — congratulations! You won’t find a more loving and sweet-natured companion. However, it is important to start training your pup as soon as possible to ensure that they grow into a well-mannered dog. Regardless of whether you want to train your pup to come when called, stay, or walk on a leash, we’ve got training guides that can help. If you stay patient and use a rewards-based training method, you’ll start seeing results before you know it.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Have you ever thought that your pooch would make the “pawfect” therapy dog? From helping kids with autism to visiting the elderly in nursing homes, therapy dogs perform a huge range of important tasks. Your pooch will need a gentle and calm temperament to be a successful therapy dog — if you think they’ve got what it takes, check out our handy guide to training your dog to become a therapy dog.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Monterey Park, CA

Choosing a dog trainer isn’t as simple as just picking the first trainer you find. Instead, there are several questions you should ask yourself first. How much experience does the trainer have? What are their qualifications? What training methods do they use? Where can they train your dog? How much will it cost?

If you’re looking for dog trainers in Monterey Park, CA, you’ll also need to consider whether your dog needs group classes or one-on-one, private training lessons. Group classes are useful when you need to socialize your puppy or help reinforce your dog’s basic obedience training. However, they typically require you to commit to a class schedule of 4 weeks or more, with prices ranging from roughly $130 to $350 for a full course.

But if group training isn’t suitable for your dog, you’ll need to search for local dog trainers that offer private sessions. This ensures that your pup gets one-on-one attention and that the trainer can focus closely on your pet’s specific needs. 

The downside is that private dog training often doesn’t come cheap — prices for Monterey Park dog training start at around $90 to $100 per session, with some trainers charging more than $150 for a 1-hour consultation. Many trainers offer discounts if you sign up for multiple private lessons but the cost is still significant.

In comparison, trainers with Wag! offer private training sessions for as little as $60 an hour. This fee includes a customized training plan for your pet, plus the convenience of a trainer coming to you and focusing on your dog’s behavioral goals. And when you save money on the cost of Monterey Park dog training, that means you’ve got more cash left over to spend on spoiling your pup!

Going Off-Leash in Monterey Park, CA

Before you can let your dog off the leash in Monterey Park, CA, make sure they know the right way to behave at the dog park. For example, does your dog come when called? Do they know how to behave politely in public? Can you trust them to not play aggressively with other dogs?

Once you know your dog is well-mannered both on and off the leash, start searching for the best dog parks near you. While you won’t find many options in Monterey Park, this is LA, so you can expect to find plenty of “grrr-eat” off-leash areas nearby.

One of them is the South Paw-sadena Dog Park, which is located roughly 20 minutes away. Open from 6 AM to 10 PM, this popular park is the ideal spot for your pup to socialize with other dogs. It’s also perfect if you want to work on some basic obedience training, but you must be able to maintain voice and/or physical control of your dog at all times.

Hermon Dog Park in Northeast Los Angeles is also worth checking out. This park has two separate fenced areas — one for large pooches and the other for small, disabled, and elderly dogs. Trees, water dispensers, and seating are all provided.
