group-dog-training-4The most common distractions for dogs, other than cats, are other dogs. They deliver the highest level of distraction when your dog is in public. Without distraction training, natural instinct and heightened sense of smell will drive your dog to enter another dog’s personal space. As a dog owner, you’re responsible for keeping your canine safe and under control. That means training your dog to listen to your commands everywhere you go.
group-dog-training-3Group classes and semi-private training sessions include distraction training and socialization. Your dog will be safely exposed to dogs of all breeds and sizes, including several Cali K9® demo dogs. During training sessions or in our Board & Train Program, we introduce other dogs to help distract and socialize your dog. We set-up controlled environments so we can show your dog how to behave under a variety of conditions and distractions.
group-dog-training-2 With other dogs as distractions, we condition your dog to seek permission before he can freely explore. This gives you the opportunity to establish authority (pack leadership) and create a positive bond with your dog. In addition, you’ll learn how to evaluate whether or not it’s safe for your dog to explore and socialize without Distraction training exercises help reduce risk and liability for you and your canine. Additionally, they help make a positive impression on non-dog-owners. This is especially true for bully breeds because their reputation has been tarnished by the actions of uneducated owners and their aggressive dogs.


A core feature of the Cali K9® vision and mission is to help dogs of all breeds and sizes become socialized and exhibit good behavior in our Bay Area communities.
