What are your training hours and availability?
By Phone: Monday through Saturday -- 8 AM to 7 PM
By appointment:Trainers' schedules fill up quickly and we advise you to schedule as soon as possible by calling 559-369-6466. Trainers do accept appointments in the evening as long as there is a well lit area to work within during the scheduled time.
We will train on Saturdays and some Monday holidays.
How many training sessions will it take?
Our one hour in-home training sessions are on a “session by session” basis and there is no specific amount of sessions your dog may need. The average amount of sessions for a puppy to obtain all the basics is about 5-6 sessions. Puppy Packages are based on 1/2 hour lesson to accommodate a younger dog's attention span. However, the more sessions you commit to, the better your results will be.
Where are your training sessions held?
The training sessions take place in your home, front/backyard and/or local park.
Who can be involved in the training sessions?
We strongly recommend that anyone in the family, and household who handles the dog should be included.
Do you accept internships for students?
Unfortunately, at this time, we are not offering any internships.
Do you work with service dogs?
Yes, we do work with service dogs who qualify under California State Law and United States Federal Law. Dawn has a service dog who accompanies her everywhere. Her dog has over 600 hours of specialized training. Dawn trained her dog with the help of two other trainers. Call us to find out more. For information on access laws, please click here.

Yes. Dawn is a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers, and the International Association of Assistance Dog Partners, plus an American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Evaluator.
