We work one-on-one with your dog, so we learn exactly what motivates him and what makes him tick. This way, we customize our 5 pillar proprietary training methods and apply and adapt them to your dog’s specific needs and your training goals. The five pillars are Obedience, Socialization, Agility, Behavior, and Problem-Solving**.


Board & Train: Daily one-on-one training, on-leash obedience, socialization, agility and exercise, behavior help, group training in California.

Includes follow-up reinforcement training: Private one-on-one training sessions (includes first take-home session), weekly semi-private training sessions, Zoom group training sessions, daily training exercises to do at home, lifetime access to our online dog training course, and more.

This way, we’re able to confirm that all dog owners are on the same page as their newly-trained canines.

An experienced dog trainer will train your dog every day for two or four weeks using our reward-based Cali K9® balanced dog training approach and multiple reps to lock in results.

Our program is comprehensive and includes our proven obedience fundamentals, daily agility, safe socialization, distraction training, and some behavior modification.

This training program is designed to be continuous and cannot be broken up into shorter segments, including post-board & train reinforcement.


We fitness train, exercise, walk and socialize your dog. We strive to provide a stress-free, enjoyable experience, and a boost of confidence for your dog as he learns to navigate different people and other dogs. Anxiety reduction will benefit your canine’s behavior down the road.


Your dog needs to be able to safely adapt to a variety of real world situations on a daily basis. So, dogs also work with different dog trainers and canines in small social groups. This provides an excellent opportunity to work on focus, recall command and distraction.


Drop-off, pick-up, and follow-up training in San Jose or North Hollywood. Board & train currently in Los Angeles only. Northern California board & train facility coming soon.
