Dog Training

We work with pet dogs and their families, and also service and therapy dog teams, to empower healthy interdependence, address disruptive behavior, and set all members of the "family pack", or human-canine working team, up for success. We'll help you achieve functional and harmonious relationships with your pets by teaching you best practices for dog handling and behavior management that also have beneficial implications for you, the handler. We offer personalized, one-on-one training in-person or on Zoom, and offer therapy dog evaluations and preparedness courses for those who hope to become involved in our animal-assisted efforts across Kern county.

 My symptom   improvement   during group was   the direct result of   the cat and dog.

 Even via Zoom the   benefit of the animals   is incredible. I can   hardly explain it; it's   just so substantial, 

 and so important.

(Adolescent group member)

 The dog and cat   kept trying over   and over. They   show me that, no   matter how many   times it takes, to   just keep trying   and eventually it   will happen for   you.
