Reward, Based In-Home Training Programs

Surf’s Up Dog Training provides different in-home dog training programsthat can specifically address and cater to your dog’s problems and your training goals. We schedule an initial in-home consultation before training begins so that we are able to create the best training plan for you. This assessment is no-obligation, meaning after we meet and discuss your case, and you wish to pursue a different course of action, you are in no way required to enroll with Surf’s Up Dog Training.

Our training is suitable for any age (puppy, adult, senior) and for any behavior issue, including anxiety and aggression. Not only will our programs target you and your dog’s individual needs, but they also follow both a reward-based and a commitment-based philosophy.

By reward-based, we aim to set your dog up for success, rather than flooding them with problem-causing stimuli and putting them in stressful situations where they will inevitably fail. We believe distraction training is an important part of training, but first we work on the basics and giving your dog the opportunity to build a foundation first before rising up.

Even the sweetest dogs can be aggressive in the worst times. The most frightening type of aggression is toward people — strangers or even people they know. They can show aggression when someone is in “their” territory, like their home or yard, or when a person or animal comes near their food, bed, toys or a member of their family they feel it’s their job to protect. That aggression can be aggravating and embarrassing to the owner.

At Surf’s Up Dog Training in San Diego, aggressive dog rehabilitation is our specialty. We believe that the best in home dog training in San Diego CA involves working one-on-one with dogs and their families to determine the cause of this aggressive behavior and end it.

Getting to the Root of Your Dog’s Aggression

Often, aggressive behavior stems from fear. A bad or abusive experience in the past could trigger your dog to be aggressive towards someone who reminds them of that past experience. If your pup comes from a shelter, their instinct to protect their food and toys could also be higher

Whatever the type of aggression and the reasons behind it, we offer the best in home dog training in San Diego CA to work with your dog and teach your family to communicate through words, tone and signals to create respect and trust. Building trust in your home between your family and dog is the basis of a long lasting, positive relationship.

Our San Diego, aggressive dog rehabilitation is built on the foundation that there are no bad dogs or breeds. Dogs thrive on routine and boundaries. Let us help you create those rules.
