Saturday Social and Stroll:
This is a single one-hour GROUP class that brings together our wonderful trained pet dogs who may need additional work around other dogs.  Practice how to deal with reactivity in a proactive way while improving your timing. 

Total Recall Camp:
This is a single one-hour GROUP class focusing on getting lightning quick responses to "COME!".

The following courses are available to those who have completed prior training with us:

Off Leash:
Yes, we CAN!  This course requires completion of our basic dog obedience course and prior approval.

Private Lessons:
Series of 6 one-hour sessions designed for do-it-yourself-ers who want a more hands-on approach.  If you have the time to work with your dog at least two times per day while in training, this course may be for you.

Puppy Head Start:
Need help with house potty training or crate training?  Is your puppy chewing the furniture or jumping on people?
This program is for puppies from 10 weeks to 6 months.  Puppies do not yet have the attention span for formal training such as 'stay' or 'heel' on a short leash until they are closer to 6 months of age.  This exclusive program is all natural and the best way to get you through puppy hood without the unnecessary stress of super-store programs or premature and unintended corrections.  Includes 3 one-hour lessons plus unlimited telephone and email support.  Let us help you with puppy training, potty training, crate training, loose leash walking and more! 

Proven Three-Week Program:

Our most popular program where we do the dog training for you and then teach you to maintain it.  You receive the results of board and train, without the cost or drawbacks of your pet being gone for up to 4 weeks.  They get to be home with you each night and on weekends thereby reducing or eliminating the stress to your pet.  The money you save is due to the costs normally associated with boarding your pet on top of the training.  Here at L.A. School for Dogs we are able to achieve results similar if not superior to a board and train system.  Rather than training in a warehouse or on a farm, our lessons are all held outside and in public where where you would expect your pet to behave.   We also begin the parental lessons as early as day 4 in order to ensure follow-through at home. 
Our proven three-week program delivers all the basics of a complete dog obedience package PLUS most problem solving in just three weeks!  It includes: heel (walking at side with a loose leash), sitting automatically when you stop walking, sit-stay, down, down-stay and come from 15', go-to-place, drop-it etc.  Your dog will perform all of these commands around city distractions and other dogs, which is in sharp contrast to courses offered in rural settings.  Developed over 35 years by the renowned Olde Towne School For Dogs in Alexandria, VA, and an L.A. School for Dogs exclusive program, this course is for those owners who desire a complete dog obedience solution or big problem solving but may have time constraints.  Includes 36 lessons for your dog plus 3 owner/handler lessons.

Let us have your pet Starbucks ready in just 3 weeks!


Training Programs

So Many Dog Trainers, So Little Time!

Before you can decide what program may be right for you, you should interview your potential dog trainer to see if you fit together.  This person should be a professional dog trainer with experience, reviews, references and more than one method or tool in their toolbox.  It is just as important that the trainer evaluate you and your pet before promising anything or quoting you prices.  Some programs we offer are:
