Distinctive

Although I know a lot about dog behavior, I know very little about you and your dog’s connection. So I begin by really listening to understand what you want from the dog training experience.

Thoughtful

I give careful consideration of your pet’s age, temperament, breed characteristics, past experience, and environment to create a personalized program for you and your pet.

DOG TRAINING ARTICLES

“Before we called Bill, my husband and I were losing hope. Whenever our dog was left alone, he would tear into whatever he could find. After just one session with Bill, we had a plan…and a plan that worked. The thing about working with Bill that I appreciate the most is the way his methods have strengthened my connection with my dog. It’s been wonderful to worry less about his destructive behaviors and put my focus on building trust between the dog and I. I am so grateful for the warm and knowledgeable way he’s worked with our little family.”
Michelle T.
“Bill helps my clients get results quickly. He is realistic and knowledgeable about dog training and understands the problems we see in many dog breeds. He is also honest and straightforward about problems. I am not surprised that Los Angeles Magazine featured Bill Stavers as best trainer in Los Angeles. His techniques are sensible and easy to follow.”
Cassie Jones, DVM,, Point Vicente Animal Hospital
“Bill Stavers is one of the best dog trainers. From puppy training to problem solving, he’s a pro at helping families learn how to coexist harmoniously with their pets”
