Happi Dawgs Dog Training at Pet Food Express Roseville

Trainer: Patty Malnick

Having a dog is a great joy!  Knowing how to train your dog and what to do can sometimes be a challenge. Patty specializes in coaching people and their dogs, utilizing positive reinforcement dog training techniques. Over the past 18 years, she has developed the Happi Dawgs programs so her clients will be coached in ways they understand and obtain the goals they want for their dogs while having fun.

Patty's classes are designed to provide you with the training tools and knowledge necessary to improve your relationship with your dog. Your increased understanding of your dog’s behavior allows you to more effectively train your dog to be the well-behaved pet you have always dreamed of having in your life!

In Happi Dawgs seminars, classes and private in-home lessons, your dog gets to learn by using its own mind and body. You will be thrilled to find out that positive reinforcement training is not just about feeding your dog treats all day. You will learn many training shortcuts and behavior modifications so that you may enjoy a wonderful relationship with your dog.
