SAMURAI DOG TRAINER

 

 

We are a family owned business that started in 2010. In our first 7 years of business, we trained close to 500 dogs within the Orange and LA County area in Basic Obedience, Problem Solving and Behavior Modification for various breeds.  Also we structure Multi-Breed "Pack Walks" for our various clients at local parks to create a sense of community and to reinforce the training techniques our clients learned through our training programs. 

When we are not training and working with our clients we are heavily involved in our local communities and volunteer programs. Our most recognized volunteer services include organizing a Pet Therapy Program, where our certified dogs visit nursing homes and libraries for children's reading groups.  

As we have cared for so many dogs and families we look forward to working with your dog as we understand how important a relationship with your dog can be. They are not just a pet, they are a member of the family and need love and care like anyone.
