Expert, top-rated San Francisco Dog Training

The Pooch Coach has been providing expert, award-winning private San Francisco Dog Training to the Bay Area for over 20 years.


San Francisco Dog Training

Above are the most common requests I get in my practice with San Francisco Dog Training. We can help with all types of dog training, from housebreaking to basic commands to advanced off leash recall. As an expert private dog trainer for over a decade, The Pooch Coach has seen it all and can help with “Any Dog, Any Problem”.


Whether you have a new puppy or rescue, or an older dog who could use more manners, we can help get your dog to listen to you unconditionally.  You won’t need a pocket full of treats, a clicker, toy or any other song and dance. Instead, you’ll learn some simple and quick tools to use anytime & anywhere. Your dog will easily learn to respect you and know you are instructing him to do things for his own safety and well-being.


Let us help you build a trusting relationship that doesn’t include fear tactics or constant bribery…  Just common sense & love.
