“Ready to give you a PAWsitive experience!”

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. I live in the second floor of an apartment but we have a fenced in area in the back. I work close to home so I have time to check in on your furry friend multiple times a day!

About Dog Training in Torrance, CA

Training Fun Fact #1:

Does your dog jump too much? Jumping on people when they arrive, jumping at the food dish as you are feeding them – are these behaviors becoming a habit? Teaching your doggo the sit command goes a long way toward stopping this annoying behavior before it goes too far.

Training Fun Fact #2:

Dogs can sometimes think that digging up a garden is almost as fun as watching you plant the flowers. If you have a dog that has an innate desire to dig that can’t be quenched, build them their own spot for creating holes. A sandbox (that can be covered to keep roaming cats out) is the ideal solution.

Training Fun Fact #3:

Some dogs are loners. Sure, they love you and are eager to tag along when invited on an adventure, but they are also happy with lots of alone time to watch the view from the window or have a snooze on the back deck. They may be a quiet pooch but still need activity and mental stimulation. An interactive feeder will tick all the boxes with your dog, giving them mental exercise and a reward.

Average Cost of Dog Training in Torrance, CA

Is your favorite pupster well socialized? Having a pooch that can fit in and play with all kinds of dogs, big and small, will make things much more pleasant at the park. How do you go about getting your furry BFF used to greeting other dogs calmly? Basic training goes a long way and is an excellent stepping stone to socialization.

To teach Fido the rules of dog-friendliness in Torrance, find a dog trainer that can assess your pup’s personality and go from there. Group classes are just the ticket for getting pooches used to being in noisy and busy environments. Many pupsters thrive on the barking and the fun. Costs for a 4 to 6 week class average around $130.

Pet parents who have canine kiddos that are timid and prefer a quieter setting may opt for private in-home dog training. One on one instruction in Torrance can average between $125 and $225 per hour. Fees will vary depending on consultation costs and travel fees, if applicable.

Some dogs excel when they are away from home for training. If this is your dog, look into a board and train program with a week or two of staying at the trainer’s home and learning the ropes. Expect to pay around $3500 for a month-long course.

Training takes consistency and hard work, but it pays off in a big way! Look to a dog trainer with Wag! for classes that suit your pup’s personality and requirements. At just $60 per one-hour session, these in-home private lessons are a bargain. Connect with a local trainer on the Wag! app today.

Going Off-Leash in Torrance, CA

Torrance and the neighborhoods surrounding it are full of beautiful, lush green spaces for well-behaved pups to enjoy. To be welcomed everywhere in Torrance, your dog will have to be licensed. It’s a matter of safety – a dog with an ID tag is found more easily and taken back home if they ever get lost. Remember, it’s essential to keep your dog within your view no matter where you choose to play.

Try Hickory Park, a small but a favorite with pooches because it has grassy areas to play on and paths to wander, along with benches to rest on when a break is needed. A picnic spot, complete with a barbecue area, is ready and waiting for hungry doggos. 

Does your pup love an exhilarating car ride? Los Angeles is nearby, and that’s an exciting place for dogs to explore. Bluff Creek Dog Park is a large off-leash puppy playground. It’s a peaceful place when not busy, and the turf surface makes for a clean environment.

Why not venture over to Long Beach and check out Rosie’s Dog Beach? There is a large off-leash section that is set aside just for four-leggers who love the surf. It’s a popular spot, though, and only one dog allowed on the silky sand per person.

Dog Training in Torrance, CA

Many restaurants, cafes, and breweries in Torrance allow dogs to come in and relax. Enjoy a refreshment with your furry best friend, and revel in the good life in sunny California. With so many dogs stopping by for a bowl of water, your dog must know how to behave in public and greet other dogs with a smile. Every pooch has a temperament all their own, after all.

What types of dogs are learning excellent doggo manners in Torrance? Mixed Terriers make a home in this fun town, and it’s their unique looks and lovable personalities that make them so popular. The mix may be a Bully Jack Terrier or the Jack Highland Terrier, or more, but no matter the type, the spunk and eager-to-play temperament will shine through.

Just like the mixed mutts, the Poodle is a dog that can change their coat with every groom. Whether long and fluffy or trimmed to the max, the Poodle has a special look that matches their perky personality.

The tiny Chihuahua is not to be forgotten. They are a dog that loves to make their presence known and they need to burn off energy just like the bigger breeds do. They are eager to train, too, and love to aim for top of the class awards.

Are you ready to teach your dog to put their best paw forward? Connect with a dog trainer with Wag!, book your first class, and help your pooch be at their best!
