Dog Trainer at Park A Pet

My name is Javier Zavala, and I’ve loved dogs since I was a young boy. My family and friends had lots of dogs and I helped out strays too, by feeding them left overs from my mother’s kitchen. I always knew I would work with dogs when I grew up. At age 20, I got a job at a pet hotel where the manager noticed my natural ability with all the dogs, even the ones that other employees were afraid of. I was so excited when I was asked to attend dog trainer’s school! I passed the course with flying colors, and started giving group and private lessons using the reward-based training and positive reinforcement techniques I had learned. Wanting to know more, I started reading articles and books, watching documentaries, and attending seminars about specialized types of dog training. I became fascinated by the pack mentality and learned how to re-socialize dogs that have problems with aggression or fear. I’m eager to meet you and your dog – let’s put together a training plan that will meet and exceed all your needs!

    I have brought Isabeau to Cesar and his wonderful team since I rescued her a little over a year now. In every single areas, they have provided exceptional love and care to my little girl dog, First, Isabeau loves Doggy Daycare, more to be around other dogs than to actually play together. Also, Isabeau is a Registered Therapy Dog; so I wanted to add some tricks to her repertoire, to help make her visits extra special at Senior Memory Care Units. The Trainer at Park-A-Pet, taught Isabeau 10 Tricks during this specialized, 6-week class. These just delight our friends at The Villas in San Clemente. Additionally, Isabeau has had her annual vaccinations very ably provided, at a very reasonable price. More recently, Isabeau had another bout of pancreatitis, which occurred due to her specific mixed breeds. During this time, I day-boarded Isabeau, and left her overnight when I attended an event out-of-town. Cesar, Rebecca, and the loving team, professionally administered medications, a special wet dog food diet mix, and additional walks to help her body heal. When I picked Isabeau up the following afternoon, she was happy, rested, and looked like she had a really great time at Park-A-Pet. Cesar and his team treat Isabeau like she is their very own pet. Thank you, Park-A-Pet!
