Santa Monica Dog Training & Santa Monica Dog Boarding
Hollywood Dog Training School has been training dogs in Santa Monica and the entire “West Side” of Los Angles since 1927. We understand the needs of the residents of Santa Monica living in a busy, social community that demands much of the family pet as part of their household.
Dog training in Santa Monica, just like any other endeavor, competence and skill comes with plenty of experience. People who have little experience in dog training usually have little success in getting the results they want. We see lots of people who have tried “do-it-yourself” dog training books and group dog training lessons in a local park. Santa Monica residents come to our dog trainers because they realize that, ultimately, professional dog training is a wiser investment.
If your dog doesn’t recognize you as an authority figure or if he has no respect for you and sees your approach with a dog collar and dog leash as a form of undo restriction, you cannot be successful in your dog training efforts. Whether you have brought a mischievous puppy into your Santa Monica household or an older dog with ingrained dog training behaviors, we use love, praise, and reward to transform your dog into a responsive, well trained, and responsible family member that you will enjoy.
More experience training dogs in Santa Monica than any other dog trainer or facility.
It can be difficult to find the right place for your four-legged friend to stay when you’re leaving Santa Monica for a while. At Hollywood Dog Training School, we understand that your pet is family. And you wouldn’t leave your family just anywhere, which is why we are proud of the dog boarding Santa Monica, as well as the Dog Training Santa Monica services we provide.
Our facility boasts a reputation of catering to dogs and cats who have experienced some of the finer luxuries from their Hollywood pet parents. From Toto in the Wizard of Oz (played by Terry, the family dog of our founder Carl Spitz) to Buck in Call of the Wild (played by Buck the St. Bernard) and many beloved “Hollywood lovelies” since the doors opened in 1927, Hollywood Dog Training School has housed, trained, and provided dog boarding for Santa Monica pets.
If you’re looking to train your dog, you’ve come to the right place. We have trained an innumerable amount of dogs and puppies throughout our almost 100 years serving the Santa Monica and Los Angeles areas. One of our philosophies is that it’s never too late to teach an old dog new tricks. Our in-board training program is guaranteed to teach your dog basic commands that will not only eliminate any bad habits he or she may possess (whether your have issues with general obedience, house-breaking, or excessive digging) but also change your relationship with your pet for the better.
Our facility is located on a spacious garden acre, with tons of space for your dog to play with our highly experienced and loving staff under the Los Angeles sun. Just like at home in Santa Monica it can get hot around here, but your pet wouldn’t know it. The outdoor runs are attached to the spotless sleeping quarters, which are temperature controlled. Our runs use an outdoor fogging system to keep our four-pawed visitors cool so that they can receive all the exercise they’d like without experiencing the the adverse effects of summertime in Southern California.
Whether you’re leaving Santa Monica for a weekend vacation or longer or have decided to register your dog for one of our in-board training courses, our staff with over 200 years of collective experience will make your pet feel at home. With one-on-one playtime with one of our loving staff members, your pet will feel like they’re in their own backyard. We also offer both half-day and full-day Doggie Daycare for dogs of all sizes. There are separate areas designated for small to medium dogs, as well as another for medium to large dogs.
If you have a cat you would like to stay with us, Kitty City is an additional building to our grounds created by popular demand. Just as with our canine area, our feline vicinity is meticulously clean and boasts year-round climate control. If your cat is accustomed to more attention at your Santa Monica home, we offer an optional T.L.C. program during which one of our staff members will happily give your kitty the playtime partner they seek. Plus, with its soundproofed walls, your cat will enjoy his or her stay, whether in climbing one of the cat trees in our kitty common room or lounging in the boarding area, undisturbed by our doggie guests.
When you bring your beloved pet to Hollywood Dog Training School, be confident that your pet will be getting the star treatment at their home away from Santa Monica.
