I am a spiritual person, who loves to connect with different species. Taking care of things is very important to me, especially animals. I had been in the childcare buisness for 6 years due to my love for children but now after having 3 of my own adopted children (dogs I adopted) I feel comfortable and excited walking, caring and playing with dogs as well. As an observant human, I find it easy to pick up on the emotions and characteristics of a dog.

About Dog Training in Mountain View, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

One fun activity your pupper is sure to love is running an agility course. However, before your dog tries to run one of these gauntlets, you'll need to teach them to agility jump. Place your doggo on a leash and position them in front of the jump. Stand on the other side and show them a treat. Give your pup an encouraging light tug and use a command like "jump". Once they jump over, give them the treat and lots of praise. Repeat and try raising the bar slowly over time. If your pup has trouble, try joining in to show them how it's done — just make sure you don't accidentally trip!

Training Fun Fact #2:

Your pupper may try to lick your face whenever possible to show their love for you. Constant licking can get tiring after a while; luckily, you can teach Scoob not to lick in around a month. If your pup licks your face whenever they greet you, you can try distracting them with a treat. Another great way to stop your dog from licking you is by teaching them a command like "sit" or "give paw," which can act as an alternative greeting. Reinforce this behavior by offering your woofer a treat every time they pull away from your face and stop licking.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Loads of mutts love a bit of roughhousing, but some dogs can take it a bit far. You can stop Fido from playing aggressively in around one to two months. Try using a toy as a buffer between you and your canine. Start playing gently, play something like tug-of-war, but make sure you stop when your pup crosses the line. Make sure you praise your dog and give the occasional treat when they play gently, so they learn to understand what's acceptable behavior.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Mountain View, CA

Searching for a dog trainer in Mountain View? Well, you're in luck, as there are loads of Mountain View dog training options in town and throughout the San Jose area. Before you jump headfirst into a training class, you should check out the class rules to make sure your pup is welcome.

Some trainers across Mountain View require you to have proof of vaccinations and microchipping before joining in on training. You'll want to book a class in several weeks in advance, as classes fill up quickly in Mountain View. You'll also want to check if there's a deposit required — otherwise, you may get an unwelcome surprise when you go to book a class. 

Group classes are popular in Mountain View, as they help your woofer socialize. However, Lucky won't get as much attention as they would in private sessions, so your dog's development may be a bit slower. You'll also be tied into a weekly scheduled class, so make sure you're not too busy to attend. Group puppy training classes in Mountain View cost anywhere from $130 to $200 for a 5 or 6-week program.

Many pet parents opt for private classes instead. These sessions usually take place in your home and last for around an hour. During this time, you and your woofer will have your trainer's full focus, so Max should pick up new skills a lot faster. Private sessions can be pricey in Mountain View, costing between $100 and $125 per class.

While there are lots of trainers around Mountain View, you might not find one suitable for your doggo. Another option is to find a Mountain View dog trainer on the Wag! platform. Dog trainers through Wag! charge around $60, meaning you'll save a buck or two on training for Princess. You can also contact your trainer beforehand to talk about what your doggo needs to learn, so you make sure you get the most out of each class.
