What we're about

When searching for a dog trainer in Los Angeles, it can be confusing to sift through all of the choices especially since every trainer will tell you something different about the best way to train a dog.

At Dog Savvy Los Angeles, we offer positive reinforcement dog training methods that use choice and consequence to benevolently teach a dog life skills, rules, and boundaries for living in a human world.

This approach fosters a healthy and trusting bond between dogs and their owners and enhances their lives together, creating happy, balanced, and well-mannered dogs.

Join us if you'd like to learn about positive dog training and how to practically apply this approach in your everyday life with your dog.
