San Diego Dog Training

Happy Dog Happy Owner is a San Diego based dog training company. Our mission is to ensure that you and your dog achieve your training goals. Whether your goals are related to basic manners, dog sports, obedience, or severe behavior issues we have the expertise to help. We believe that our success is measured by your success and our mission isn't complete until you and your dog have accomplished your objectives.

We offer a variety of dog training services and products.

An important component of our classes is teaching you how to communicate with and train your dog. We limit the size of our group classes, guaranteeing that you and your dog receive plenty of individual attention.

We use positive reinforcement training techniques. Positive reinforcement is a powerful training tool, enabling the training experience to be both productive and fun. It builds trust and is fundamental for developing a successful relationship with your pet.

We address undesired behaviors such as: jumping, barking, digging, begging, chewing, etc. We also treat complex behavior challenges such as: fear, aggression, and separation anxiety. We develop a customized treatment plan based on positive reinforcement, desensitization, and counter-conditioning techniques. To ensure success, the plan is designed specifically for you and your dog.

You can contact us at our email address: [email protected]. We look forward to hearing from you.

Lara helped me prepare my dog to enter service dog training. She is one of the best trainers I have ever worked with.

Really useful and fun classes. Did obedience 1 and 2 and it was awesome. I’ve gotten much better at communicating with my dog about what I want her to do and I’m better at engaging her. Lots of support with Lara’s weekly follow up emails and she is always very responsive. Will be coming back for some more training classes!

I first used Happy Dog Happy Owner in 2012 when we adapted our first rescue dog. Lara has been an excellent trainer. My wife and I take our 2 doggies to agility classes and it's always a lot fun. The dogs are happy and so are we! I highly recommend Lara!

Lara the Trainer is very Observant, Smart, Insightful, and Pleasant to work with. She watches, recognizes and adjust situationally to your dog. We've recommended her classes to many friends, all of who have gotten a lot from her teachings.
