Dog Trainers

A well-trained dog begins with a knowledgeable and well-trained human. At the Santa Cruz SCPA, we consider dog training an essential element of lasting human-canine matches. Obedience and agility training are also wonderful, mutually rewarding ways to engage with your canine companion, for fun and fitness.
