Our trainers will help you develop and reinforce good communication habits between you and your dog.
You can achieve life-changing results by being able to read your dog’s body language clearly and by giving your dog the right information through your body language.
Our programs focus on:
- What you are saying from your dog’s perspective
- Creating a healthy bond and balance with you as pack leader
- Essential obedience commands (sit, stay, down, heel, come, wait, leave it)
- Walking on a loose lead
- Greeting other dogs and people
- Addressing aggressive behavior towards people and other dogs
- Creating solutions for barking, jumping, digging, chewing, and possessiveness
- Reducing the stress of separation anxiety
It’s A Dog’s Life’s dog training grounds permit us to set up all sorts of controlled distractions, such as teaching your dog to stay while we let another dog run through the yard, etc.
Our trainers will also meet with clients at their residence or out on the town.
Many of our clients in Petaluma, Santa Rosa, Rohnert Park, Novato, Marin, and throughout Sonoma County and the North Bay choose accelerated dog training in which we train your dog for you while it is boarding at our facility. This style of training is always followed up with, upon our client’s return, a private training session with the owner and dog training together.

PRIVATE TRAINING SESSIONS
Private dog training sessions are available focusing on obedience and dog behavior for any specific subject you would like to address. These sessions are for the owner and dog to train together.
