CPD Certified Dog Trainer

 Pet First Aid Certified 


Hayley has successfully completed the Level 3 Award in Canine Behaviour Training, achieving a Merit on June 13th, 2019 from the CPD Certification Service, and has her Pet First Aid Certificate.  

    

Hayley knows it is imperative to socialize and teach good manners to puppies while they are very young. Hayley gives puppies and pet parents the tools they need to thrive together. 


She offers 1:1 sessions with you & your puppy, to help you learn the best training techniques for your dog.  With Hayley, you will learn how to teach your dog to sit, come, stay, and wait and any other skill you think your puppy needs (including how to encourage them to ‘potty’ on cue/command)  


In real world scenarios, with older dogs, she will help you learn basic and advanced skills on and off leash.  She will also support your dog in a private 1:1 session to learn to walk with a lose lead, reduce pulling and lunging when on lead, come on command, and have improved ‘street ‘manners’. 


Together with Hayley, you will learn successful training and distraction techniques to correct undesirable behaviors.  At the end of Hayley’s training, you will be able to comfortably walk confidently and stress free with your dog.


Her puppy training sessions and adult dog sessions take place in Playa Vista, Santa Monica, Venice, Mar Vista, and Marina del Rey. Hayley is also happy to do general dog walking and pet sitting

Once your dog passes the CGC test

Once your dog passes the CGC test, you’ll be able to select one of these two choices: 

  1. CGC as a Title. Get the official AKC CGC title for your dog. The processing fee is $20. You will receive the CGC certificate, be able to use the suffix “CGC” after your dog’s name, and CGC will be added to your dog’s title record.To get the official AKC title, your dog must be registered or listed with the AKC (and have a number of one of these three types: AKC number, PAL, or AKC Canine Partners). This is because to create titles, we attach them to the dog’s number.
  2. CGC certificate only. Get a CGC certificate only without the official AKC CGC title. The processing fee is $10. CGC will not be added to your dog’s title record.
