Welcome to From the Heart Animal Behavior and Training

Training is essential for your dog's mental development. It can be done formally or informally, and unless you live in a vacuum, behavior will develop. Through training we can mold your dog's behavior into a desirable asset.

Behavioral problems are the primary reasons pets are turned into shelters, according to the latest statistics. Statistics also reveal using aggressive training methods increases the potential for development of aggressive behavior. Trust is the key word in the methods used at FROM THE HEART, however, trust must be earned by and from your dog. During class you will work hard, play games, laugh, and learn. But most importantly, you will form a bond with your pet.

Located in Salinas, CA, From the Heart provides obedience training for puppies and adult dogs as well as daycare.

Mark your calendars....August 15 is National Homeless Pet Day and From the Heart Dog Training will for the 11th year hold another event to promote adoptions, responsible pet ownership. There will also be an auction, cake walk, pet photos, games, food and much more. Over the years, through the auction, we have donated over $40,000 to local pet assistance organizations. Watch for more information soon. Hope to see you there. Mark that calendar NOW.

Also in November, I will be hosting a three day "ultimate recall" course by John Rogerson. John is a friend and colleague from England. I returned from his 21 day training course in India last January. More information on that soon.
