Bravo! Dog Training at Pet Food Express

Trainer: Katy Becker, CTC

BRAVO!PUP’S goal is to train both you and the dog using positive reinforcement techniques that make learning fast, fun and motivating for everyone. Katy Becker has been teaching positive group training classes for over seven years and is a valuable member of the BravoPup team. 

  Katy loves to help her human students gain the skills and confidence to get the behaviors they want from their dog as well as to learn to recognize the good behavior their dogs are offering already-both qualities that foster the dog/owner bond and increase the likelihood of the dog remaining in the home for life.  For the past nine years, Katy has worked at Citizen Canine, where she has gained first hand experience with hundreds of dogs, of all different shapes, sizes and breeds.  Citizen Canine allows Katy the opportunity to use her extensive knowledge of dog body language and dog-dog interactions on a daily basis in order to ensure the guests have the safest and most comfortable experience while away from home.  

In 2005, Katy earned a Certificate in Training and Counseling from the Academy for Dog Trainers at the SFSPCA and knew she had found her life's passion in dog training.  After graduation, she stayed on to complete an internship in the SPCA's behavior and training department, where she received continuing education on behavior modification, class teaching, and dog-dog interactions under the tutelage of the SPCA's finest trainers.

Katy lives in Oakland with two mixed breed dogs of her own-Bodie, a Husky mix and Stuart, a Chihuahua mix.

Puppy Socials
BravoPup socials are a great way for puppies to enjoy social interactions with other puppies and their people while burning off energy! Pups will have friendly and educational interactions with both pups and people and owners will get the advice of an experience trainer on the early identification and prevention of fear and aggression. Lastly, owners will get a tired puppy! A really, really tired puppy!
