Jane Smith, ABCDT ABC Certified Dog Trainer
Palmdale, California 93551
Profile: To me, training is more than just teaching your dog basic commands like "sit" and "stay". It's about teaching dog lovers the importance in understanding dog psychology and how to build an enjoyable canine-human relationship. I do this through creating respect and trust between an owner and his or her dog. Once an owner acknowledges how important of this type of connection is, we are ready to train our dogs and enjoy our canine friends at a much higher level.
I help dog owners in the Antelope Valley hold group trainings on Saturday mornings at local parks in Lancaster, Palmdale, Rancho Vista, Rosamond, Pearblossom, and the Acton area.
If your dog barks excessively, chews on everything, is difficult to take on walks, and seems unteachable, the solution may be easier than you think. Some of these problems can be fixed within a few minutes and a certified dog trainer (like me) can often explain to you why your pet behaves that way and how you can fix the problem.

Hayward, California 94545
Profile: Working with animals has always been a passion of mine. After finding a dog abandoned on the streets who was riddled with so much trauma translating itself into aggression through fear, I became even more motivated to learn more about how a dog thinks and reacts in certain situations.
I wanted to understand how the psychology behind the action works to better help and work with these wonderful creatures as well as help the relationship between human and dog for other people as well.
After taking the year long course through Animal Behavior College, I can successfully say I understand canine behavior more and how to help them fit into a human world in ways the dog will understand.
I look forward to helping others resolve issues and develop a stronger bond with their canine companions.

Call Us Today!
Does your dog need to brush up on manners?
Do you have a new puppy who requires training or socialization?
Is your dog exhibiting unwanted behaviors, such as excessive barking, house-training issues, jumping or separation anxiety?
Even the most well-behaved dogs sometimes need a bit of help learning to function in our human culture.
Whether it's basic obedience training or complex behavioral issues, Michelle Panek can help you and your best friend, using positive training methods that are completely force-free.
About the Trainer:
Michelle Panek is a certified professional dog trainer, having graduated from Animal Behavior College with Honors. She also studied Genetics, Zoology and Psychology, and has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology (with Distinction). She has worked with various humane societies and rescue organizations in Colorado and California, helping to make dogs more adoptable through training and behavior modification. She is a member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers (APDT).
A Message From Michelle:
"I believe that as pet owners, it's important that we are caring stewards for the animals that share and enrich our lives. Maybe you've seen or read about certain questionable training methods on TV or in a famous dog training book, or even had them recommended to you by a trainer you've hired.
There is never a need to resort to physical punishment or to force your dog to obey. I know from personal experience that it's possible to successfully treat issues such as aggression, separation anxiety, barking, jumping and general unruly behavior with the application of totally force-free methods.
If you prefer an "on the same team" relationship with your best friend, rather than an adversarial one, I can guide you toward that goal.
Through the use of positive reinforcement techniques and compassionate behavior management, your dog will learn more efficiently, be happier and gain confidence. As a result, your dog will choose to offer a behavior that you desire - because it's fun to do so!
The wonderful bond between you will be strengthened in this way, and you'll enjoy seeing your best friend blossom."

Frederico Strange, ABCDT ABC Certified Dog Trainer
Bakersfield, California 93301
Profile: Hello, my name is Frederico Strange, I grew up in Atlanta Ga, and served 8 years in the United States Air Force (USAF) as a Military Working Dog Handler.
I am now servicing the Bakersfield, Lake Isabella, Wofford Heights and surrounding areas throughout Kern County.
While growing up I discovered I had an incredible bond with dogs. I started out at the age of 6 with my first dog. Was a Labrador/American Staffordshire Terrier Mix named Bella. I taught her how to sit, down and follow me everywhere I went.
While training dog within the USAF a few of the many things that I taught dogs was basic obedience, advanced obedience (off-leash), agility and scent tracking.
In 2007 when my enlistment was coming to a close I separated from the USAF and began the long venture of starting my own business.
I continued to train dog in Atlanta from 2007-2013 to keep myself knowledgeable and disciplined within my training skills.
In January of 2013 enrolled at Animal Behavior College to become a certified dog trainer and to acquire the knowledge of using more positive methods within my training program. After gaining the knowledge of positive training method from Animal Behavior College I consider myself a Balance dog trainer.
I graduated in the top of my class to become a certified dog trainer and along the way I received my pet CPR certification and meaning knowledge pet nutrition and effectively teaching group classes.
As part of my training I volunteered at Best Friends Animal Shelter in Mission Hills CA, which is a No kill animal shelter.
I would take dogs out for walks and spend quality time with them one on one, and give them time to run around and enjoy the outdoors.
As part of training I would observe how dogs interact and communicate with each other.My goal as the Owner of my own dog training business is to help dog owners bridge the communication gap with their beloved pet.
Through all my accomplishments and training I use a combination of positive reinforcement and negative punishment to transform your problematic dogs into model canines.
I will wrap this up by saying THANK YOU for reading this and giving me the opportunity of solving the complicated misunderstanding between your pet and yourself.
I have been training dogs for over 10 years now. I started in the United States Air Force as a K-9 Handler. I was very efficient and graduated at the top of my class in the MWD Handler Course. Since 2007 after separating for the USAF I have been actively training dogs of all breeds and temperaments.
In 2013, I graduated from Animal Behavior College from the Dog Obedience Instructors Course to become a Certified Dog Trainer.
On my journey since 2004 I have experience in teaching Scent Tracking, Protection Training and Guard dog training.
I use a more Balanced training Technique which means I use Positive training methods all the time except as a last resort for safety purposes.

Profile: I am a dog trainer and walker based in South Orange County California. I graduated ABC's Dog Trainer Program with honors in 2012. I started my own business to help people and their dogs lead happier more balanced lives together.
Growing up in Southern California my family always had pets: cats, dogs, rabbits, snakes. I love all animals. I was bitten by a dog as an eight year old and went through a period of time where I learned to be afraid of dogs. I eventually grew past it and it has given me a particularly sympathetic perspective and tempered my enthusiasm with wisdom.
By the time I was a teenager my family rescued two dogs CJ and Dane. I always considered them mine and eventually when I moved out on my own they moved with me. They were both Great Dane mixes and over 100 lbs each. They taught me a lot and gave me a lot of happiness for many years.
Now I am married and my husband and I rescued a Lab/Border Collie mix from a local shelter. She is still young but learning to be a great dog and teaching me to be a better trainer.

Profile: Arrow Dog & Puppy Training
I'm Lori Barnabe, founder of Arrow Dog and Puppy Training. I started Arrow for dogs and puppies of all backgrounds, but I have a particular interest in special needs shelter dogs.
During my years as a County Animal Control Officer and later a Registered Veterinary Technician for a Municipal Animal Shelter, I saw first hand what led former guardians to turn their dogs over to public agencies. I also learned what kind of treatment could turn a dog’s behavior around and get them a second chance at becoming the lovable companions dogs want to be. My goal is to ensure that each dog who attends class at Arrow becomes a cherished and permanent member of their family, and a source of pride for its guardians.
With that goal in mind, before the actual training sessions begin, I develop an individual program for each student; a program that recognizes and considers a dog’s whole environment; physical, emotional, and spiritual. I like to think of this as a “Whole-istic” approach.
To learn more about this approach to good dog behavior, please contact me for a free in-home consultation.

By building engagement between the dog and the owner, Mary lays a foundation that allows other learning to take place. This thoughtful approach will do wonders in helping the dog focus on you and make learning the basic commands of sit, stay, leave-it, down,come and loose leash walking a joy for both the owner and the dog.
The end result is that a positive learning relationship exists. This is the key link in establishing continued learning between you and your companion.
The system Mary uses is primarily reward based training.There is an emphasis on marking the behaviors that you like while re-enforcing the positive relationship that you have with your companion.
Mary's training includes motivational techniques based on the primary drive of each dog using food, play, toys, and praise with the thoughtful appropriate application of aversion.

Profile: Profile: Certified by Animal Behavior College, Taj Panganiban at Nor Cal Dog Academy covers the entire city of San Francisco and daily focusing on reliable obedience, exercise, socialization and attention - all the things that dogs love and make them enjoyable.
Unfortunately when a dog is not mentally/physically exercised or socialized they don’t act in a manner that is appropriate around humans. Nor Cal Dog Academy makes personal and professional effort to improve life quality for humans through their pets by offering stimulation for the dog, and direction for the human.
Learning obedience can be served through group class or private training for specialized need and/or attention. Above all, puppy class is by far the best class as it sets you off in the right direction – an ounce of prevention is definitely worth a pound of cure.
Nor Cal Dog Academy uses positive reinforcement to increase good behavior and control dog behaviors such as barking, chewing and jumping around humans. Positive reinforcement is rewarding the dog with something he likes after he does something you like. It is not always with treats but encompasses all rewards such as walks, attention and acting like a dog - jumping, pulling and barking.
Our group walks are an excellent complement to the training your dog may already have or is receiving - or just a productive way to release energy while you're away as the old proven adage says “A tired dog is a GOOD dog”. You'll be glad to know that our groups are always transported and monitored in a safe, fun way without allowing any bad habits to occur or be reinforced.
Feel free to browse through the site for training tips, recommendations and sign up for training and/or exercise so you can get started on improving the quality of you and your pet’s life!

Profile: Andee Rivera, also known as Grandma Dee is a certified ABC Dog Trainer, specializing in puppy training.
The best time to start training your puppy is between 8 weeks and 4 months of age. They are little sponges at this time and learn quickly what is expected of them. If they are left to their own means, they will often become impossible to live with; what was cute when they were a pup is no longer cute when they are an adult.
A large percentage of these dogs wind up in a shelter, or worse. Be a good puppy parent.
