Dog Training Workshops

Workshops: Planned, Private Groups, and Scheduled Retreats: 

What would you love to accomplish with your dog?    LET’S DO IT!   Although every dog, every person and every situation is different, whether your dog has fear or aggression issues, or just can’t concentrate when distracted….what you are looking for is the same end result; happy, relaxed, well-behaved dogs. With or without a dog you will learn things you’ve never realized before about  dog behavior. See how  some simple training techniques and the power of the pack can quickly change years of unwanted behaviors! Look what some  of my recent clients had to say:

“They are totally getting it! They have navigated old men, skateboards, weird people and even .other dogs walking past. Rumba is even proud of himself, every time he gets it right he starts wagging his little tail! its a total 180* difference!” ………or another client,………………”Thank you soooo much for the reassurance and encouragement!!! He came around by the end of the day! 🙂 Doing great today! Seriously can’t believe the difference in this dog after seeing you one time! You’re amazing! Thanks again!” ………………..and another………………………..’The training was fantastic!   Diesel is doing better on walks …more confident.   Not afraid.”

Foundations:  This workshop at my facility covers the foundations necessary before going on to the other workshops. If your dog has any aggression or fear issues, needs work walking calmly on leash even when other dogs are running around,  or has a hard time sitting still (staying) when distracted, this is a great place to start! We also work on off leash “come” $175 with a dog, $50 observers only, 2 to 3 clients with dogs and 5 observers maximum

Town Trips*:  Here we take the dogs to the next level, getting them to “behave like a service dog” in down town Paso Robles, or San Luis Obispo.  On these workshops your dog will continue working on socialization around lots of people and traffic, strange dogs and situations,  elevators, stairs and down stays while eating at outdoor restaurants.  $200 with a dog (includes lunch or dinner at local restaurants)  2 clients with dogs  only

Beach Trips*: The ultimate in dog socialization, off leash “come” and down stays. Your dog will be an “off leash expert” at the end of these workshops.  $175 with a dog, $50 observers only, 2 clients with dogs and 3 observers maximum

*Must have attended at least one private training session or foundations workshop with me in the last 9 months before attending these workshops.
