Oakland-based dog trainer Steve Bettcher, a Certified Dog Trainer by the International Association of Canine Professionals and a certified Nosework Instructor, has over 15 years of dog training experience in the Bay Area... and over 45 East Bay veterinarians refer their clients to him for in-home dog behavior training and problem solving.

Dog training in Oakland in action

Dog obedience problems often stem from a lack of communication, lack of clear boundary setting, and lack of consistent discipline. Steve teaches pet owners how to train their puppies and dogs using a humane approach to dog obedience training that teaches you how to communicate effectively with your pet, so that your dog understands clearly what you want and expect. He acts as your coach, by working with your dog on and off-leash, and then showing you how to get the exact same results. The Dog Squad obedience training produces dogs that listen better and respond to you even when distracted.

Many dog training schools and obedience classes only cover basic dog manners and obedience, and do not deal with specific problem dog behavior. Steve works with all breeds of dogs, all canine temperaments, and all dog behavior problems.

A dog leaps a barrier during East Bay dog training

The Dog Squad offers a variety of private in-home dog training programs and obedience classes using traditional and remote dog collar training for puppies and adult dogs and offers classes in Nosework, Tricks and ACK Canine Good Citizen. No dog problem is too challenging for us to help you solve. Because I travel from Oakland to your location Steve covers only Alameda and Contra Costa County for his in-home dog training programs. The Dog Squad does work with people from outside the area by special arrangement.

Call The Dog Squad for an In-home Dog Behavior Evaluation. We train puppies and dogs seven days a week and we offer lifetime dog training support.
