Dog Training in Oakland, CA

Pet Dog USA serves clients in cities and towns throughout the East Bay. As such, we have compiled a variety of useful information for dog owners in Oakland, CA related to dog parks, leash laws, and more. Here’s a list of some of the services we offer in Oakland, CA:

  • East Bay Dog Training:

When we first begin out dog training sessions we will start with teaching you grooming basics, learning to be handled, establishing pack structure in the household, setting expectations for dogs and children, in home assessment and private consulting on daily logistics for your individual puppy and family. Here’s a great chance to ask these types of questions:

  1. Like where should the crate go?
  2. Do we have to have a crate?
  3. If so how often and when do we use it?
  4. What about the doggie door?
  5. Should I have a doggie door?
  6. Do I need to teach my dog to swim if I have a pool?
  7. Is it okay for the puppy to chase the kids?
  8. How do I stop puppy from biting?
  9. Are their unknown hazards lurking in my back yard?
  10. Can a puppy sleep with me?
  11. Can a puppy sleep with my kids?

We can also start covering foundations of learning, and basic commands such as sit, down, place, stay (or long sit), recall (come/here), and loose leash walking with even the youngest of puppies. The most important thing about dog training is to keep your expectations in line with the developmental maturity of your pup!  We can help you with that as well.

  • Potty training in Oakland CA:  

It is true there are no shortcuts in potty training, but I can support you through in home consulting, help you understand how this process takes place from a learning perspective, and get you set up with the best plan and tools to get your puppy through the process as quickly and efficiently as possible!

  • Dog Obedience Training in Oakland CA:

Covering all the basics and any custom commands you’d like your dog to know.  Adult dog obedience training is offered in both in-home one-on-one sessions, and board and train programs depending on the needs of the dog and/or your goals as a client.

  • Behavioral Programs in Oakland CA:

Our behavioral modification programs will help with behavioral problems such as aggression, fearfulness and separation anxiety.   These are highly customized programs which typically consist of a combination of 2 or 3 weeks of “exposure therapy” in a board and train setting, followed up with a number of private in-home training sessions with the owner, and a plan for ongoing support.  These types of programs are offered and quoted based on what will best benefit you and your dog. Please reach out to me (Emily) directly if you would like to discuss the possibility of enrolling your pup in this sort of training.
