Since our dogs have gotten used to our being home during the quarantine, they may suffer separation anxiety when we return to our regular routine. We’ve written a series of articles things you can do now to prevent puppy dog separation anxiety after quarantine. It’s much easier to prevent it than to cure it.

dog with family los angeles puppy dog training doggie mannersMany dog trainers go into dog training because they were obedience competitors – they started out training their dogs to compete for obedience titles where their dogs learned precise commands. Caryl started training her own dogs because she wanted them to be better behaved. (Then she worked on dog tricks because that was fun. Interestingly, her first job as a dog trainer was at the Los Angeles Music Center where one of her dogs was in an opera with Placido Domingo and even was mentioned in the Los Angeles Times! But we digress…)

family and dog los angeles puppy dog training doggie mannersCaryl’s training clients want what she wanted – their dogs to be better behaved. They frequently comment, “Your method of dog training makes sense to me, and it makes sense to my dog because he learns so fast” because they learn dog psychology, how dogs think — and so will you.  Her methods are designed for busy people — they take only a few minutes a day.

Many clients see dramatic improvements in their dog’s behavior at the first lesson — many times during the first 5 minutes–honest!

Our goal in our Los Angeles dog training private lessons is to make your life easier by making your dog or puppy calm and well behaved and the best family dog you could ever hope for!

Dog training is more than telling your dog to stop his behavior.
It’s more than your dog following commands.

Dog training is communication — showing your dog how you want him to act in a way he understands.

Dog training is trust — teaching your dog he can feel safe and know that you will take care of him.

Training your dog is freedom — taking your dog with you feeling confident he will behave.

Training is bonding — working together so you and your dog enjoy each other’s company.

And you’ll become his leader in no time without force or screaming!.
