Pasadena dog trainer highly recommended by Pasadena pet sitting company

As the owner of a Pasadena pet sitting company, clients are constantly asking for recommendations for a good Pasadena dog trainer.  My first recommendation would be Nicole Berthiaume who runs Teachers Pet Dog Training.  To this date, I’ve recommended her to 3 clients and they can’t stop raving about her.

Whether you’ve got an “old dog” who needs to learn new tricks or you’ve just adopted a new dog from the Pasadena shelter, Nicole can definitely help you out.

Pasadena pet sitter meets Pasadena dog trainer mentored by Cesar Millan

Pasadena pet sitter meets Pasadena dog trainer mentored by Cesar Millan

As the owner of a Pasadena pet sitting company, I meet a lot of interesting people.  Today, I was introduced to Ernesto Robles whom my husband met him while volunteering at the San Gabriel Humane Society (he will be volunteering at the Pasadena shelter soon as well).

Ernesto appeared on an episode of the Dog Whisperer and subsequently was mentored by Cesar himself.  As a Pasadena dog walker, I was obviously interested to see Ernesto in action.

During a session that lasted about two hours, I was amazed to see the effect he had on my dog as well as my sister-in-law’s dog.  Although many of the principles were familiar to what we saw on TV, it’s amazing to see it in action by someone who actually knows what he’s doing.  For those of you that are interested, Ernesto is available for consultations.  Please contact me and I can provide contact information.

Pet Training for San Gabriel Valley and Pasadena Pet Owners

Pet Training for San Gabriel Valley and Pasadena Pet Owners

Basic obedience and training is a necessity for any pet, but where do you start?  There are so many options – do-it-yourself, on-line programs, video tapes, pet stores, private lessons – selecting a training regimen can be exhausting.  I’ve provided 2 links – one is for provides guidelines on how to select a trainer and the other is a directory of trainers.

My personal advice is to select a regimen that you can maintain.  You could send your pet to the best Pasadena dog trainers, but if you do not consistently reinforce what your dog learns, all that time, energy, effort and money will go to waste.

Potty Training Resources for San Gabriel and Pasadena Pet Owners

Potty Training Resources for San Gabriel Valley and Pasadena Pet Owners

Now that you’ve gotten past all the preliminary steps to bringing your pet home, you have arguably the most difficult and rewarding task at hand – potty training.  You may experience a great deal of frustration at the beginning, but when your pet begins to understand the concept and goes where he/she is supposed to, it’s a great feeling.  I’ve included 2 links for potty training your puppy and/or kitten.

Generally, dogs may be taught several times where and when to potty.  As a Pasadena dog walker, most of my clients like their dogs to go potty on their walks.  For those of you overly concerned about potty training, consider asking the staff members at either the San Gabriel or Pasadena shelter to point out dogs that have been potty trained.  Also, most pet stores, such as Petco, will provide seminars on how to potty train your pet.

As with most things associated with your new pet, patience is the key.  Keep at it and you’ll have your pet potty trained in no time.  Please contact us if you need more information or other references.
