Tip of the Month - Training & Socialization
When you see a dog that is comfortable and relaxed in a setting outside of its own home, you can bet the dog had the right start in life. It’s no accident that a dog can be calm and content in different surroundings. The dog you are observing has most likely had positive experiences with humans of all shape, age, size and color. It has most likely had positive, non-threatening experiences with other canines. Chances are it was exposed gradually to new sounds, smells, movements, objects and surroundings of all kinds. In other words, it has been properly socialized. You can bet that dog has also had some good training.
It takes time, patience, work and dedication to make a nice dog. Just as we would never expect our children to raise themselves, we cannot expect that from our dogs. We urge you to invest the time in training and proper socialization for your canine friend.

A few of the components necessary to pass a CGC test include "reaction to another dog", "accepting a friendly stranger", and "reaction to a distraction". Congratulations to Clark the Golden and Randy for passing with flying colors!
Want your dog to become a valuable part of our community?
There are many ways to reach out to others through therapy work. Therapy teams visit patients in hospitals, engage in reading programs with children, visit veteran hospitals, convalescent homes, and even spend time with people in airports who are afraid to fly. Passing a Canine Good Citizen Certification test is your first step.
Ask us about this AKC test or visit the AKC website to read more.
Wishing you a SAFE and HAPPY SUMMER!

Congratulations to Keri and Ash for becoming a therapy team. They are now giving back to the community together as they regularly visit convalescent homes and libraries where kids can read to Ash. Ash is a perfect example of a dog who has blossomed into a social butterfly through Keri's diligence and hard work with her training. We are SO proud of them!
We offer group classes, private lessons, advanced classes, puppy lessons, in-home training, CGC’s and “Tune-ups”. Our training classes are held in Simi Valley.
Everyone should read this poem before getting a dog.
“Reliability off lead should always be the most significant criterion when evaluating and comparing training methods.” (Bill Koehler 1990).
In the words of trainer Dany Canino, "You can take a trained dog anywhere and it will be relaxed and comfortable..." Read about how our training has helped students create lifelong partnerships with their canine companions...
Our novice training course will teach your dog to stay when told, come when called, and walk politely on or off leash in just 10 weeks! .
Summer is in full swing!
If you leave your canine companions outdoors, be sure they have plenty of shade and water. Also, please check your yard regularly for snakes. Ask your veterinarian if the rattlesnake vaccine would be right for your dog. Rattlesnake aversion training can also be an effective safety precaution for your dog.
Finally, never leave pets unattended in your car. Temperatures can rise in an instant!
Thanks to Miss Athena (the GSD) for sharing her "summer fashion" photo!
