Having a happy, well-balanced dog is one of life’s greatest pleasures!

At Canine Path, we believe that the goal of every dog owner is to have a loving, well-behaved companion. However, some dogs develop unwanted behaviors that are frustrating or create unsafe situations. Our expert Los Angeles dog trainer educates pet owners and trains dogs to be happy, safe companions. Whatever the age or breed of your dog, Canine Path can help you and your pet achieve harmonious, well-balanced behavior to create a loving home and happy environment for you both.

In our experience a dog’s behavior is based on 5 factors:

  1. Genetics: the physical characteristics & temperament of your dog.
  2. Environment: Stimuli (noises, moving objects, etc.) that your dog is exposed inside and outside your home.
  3. Socialization: How your dog is exposed and interacts with people, dogs, and other animals.
  4. Training: teaching your dog what is expected of him, and rewarding him accordingly.
  5. Owners: Yes, You! – Getting everyone in the dog’s life on the same page.

Using a positive approach, Canine Path’s ‘Open Toolbox’ method allows us to help you build a balanced and harmonious relationship with your dog. Whether you are experiencing training/behavioral challenges or desire to take your dog to “The Next Level” we can help!

We teach owners how to:

  • We teach dogs of all ages: Puppies, Adolescents & Adults.
  • Become the “Pack Guardian”.
    Read your dog’s signals (body language, signs of anxiety, etc.) and how to motivate him.
  • Use structured play and games to obtain desired behavior and have fun with your dog.
  • Good manners – what all good dogs should know.
  • Proper leash and obedience skills (no pulling or lunging).
  • How to handle ‘real-world experiences’ (skateboards, loud noises, meet and greet new people and dogs, etc.).

5 Common Puppy Training Mistakes

When I go for walks, I see plenty of well-behaved dogs and my first thought is, “I’ve got to go play with them right this second,” and so I try to run. Trouble is, I forget that I’m on a leash attached to my collar so I’m getting air cut off and my owner is dragged...

How to Stop Your Dog from Biting

I love to nip and bite when I’m excited — it’s my favorite way to play and one of the only ways I know how to, other than running around the house because of the "zoomies." All my brothers and sisters used to nip and bite me — and I’d return the favor — when we were...
