Professional Dog training in Marin County

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

  • Dog training in Marin County:

Learning the basics of grooming your dog, how to handle your dog, establishing authority in the household, and setting expectations for your dog are just some of the training we provide in Marin County. At Pet Dog USA we provide in home assessments and private consulting on daily logistics for your individual puppy and family. This is the part where you get to ask questions such as:

  1. 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 a 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?

While this is done we can begin covering the foundations of learning and basic commands. These include commands like 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 dog.

  • Potty training in Marin County:  

It is true there are no shortcuts in potty training, but Pet Dog USA can offer support 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!

  • Obedience Training in Marin County:

Covering all the basics and any custom commands you’d like your dog to know.  Adult obedience 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 Marin County:

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.
