Alice Tong best East Bay puppy trainer in Oakland, Berkeley, and Emeryville

Every day is an opportunity for puppies to form good or bad habits that stick with them for the rest of their lives. To help prevent your puppy from having behavior issues, Doggy Lama offers a special 5 Week Puppy Package! This package includes all the benefits of our drop-in visits, plus expert training and fun socialization field trips with certified professional dog trainer Alice Tong of Choose Positive Dog Training

Alice creates a personalized training plan with exercises specific to your puppy's strengths and challenges. She then comes to your home 1-3 times a week to train and socialize your puppy, using the 3 essentials of puppy parenting. Your puppy package can include both day training sessions (Alice works with your dog when you are out) and owner sessions (Alice works with you to show you what your dog has learned). Doggy Lama provides full coverage for potty breaks, making sure your puppy's house training and positive socialization remain consistent. Plus, if you'd like to continue working with Doggy Lama as your puppy grows up, you can easily transition to using our dog walking and pet sitting services. Explore each package below to see which one best meets your needs.

"Thank you SO, SO much for everything you have done with Phoenix.  In the time that you have worked with her, she has grown from an impetuous puppy into a well-behaved, poised little lady... This was the best decision I could have made."
