Withers Dog Training was recently featured in SHOUTOUT SOCAL.

STAR Puppy

Did you get or are you thinking about adding a puppy to your family? Ensure you start them off on the right paw with early training! It is never too early to start and you will not regret it. Safety, socializing, desensitizing, and positive associations are crucial for your new puppy. Consistency and patience will go a long way, and lets not forget POTTY TRAINING! Book a Private Session with me today to get started on puppy training.

Behavior Modification

Common behavior problems include jumping, excessive barking, chewing, digging, mouthing, potty training, and separation anxiety. While most of these can be helped with a healthy exercise regimen, sometimes dog owners need a little more help to find a solution. Some training concepts I apply to these problems involve positive and negative reinforcements that are humane and effective. Book a Private Session today to get started.

Basic Obedience

Basic obedience is one facet of training a well-rounded happy dog. This is not just about 'sits' and 'stays' but also involves teaching our pets manners so you may live cohesively as a family with a dog. Effective training takes patience, practice, and consistency. Understanding how dogs think and having the ability to read a dog's body language allows me to modify my training methods to best fit your pup. Book a Private Session now to begin bringing out the best in your dog.

Loose Leash Walking

A dog should walk next to you on a loose leash that hangs in a j-shape. If your dog is pulling, stopping, or lunging at other stimuli, I know my loose leash walking methods will help you. I am a fan of changing up walking routes but one thing I would not change is spending 3-5 minutes doing calming ovals before starting your activity. This diffuses a substantial percentage of the excitement that feeds into the chaos of a walk. To start enjoying your walks, book a Private Session today.

Agility and Tricks

Have you ever wanted to teach your dog to run through an agility course or do a really cool trick?! Using specific training methods, I like to capture their natural behaviors and shape them into an impressive trick worthy of showing your friends. Some of my favorites include roll-over, bow, spin, beg, play dead, crawl, and even weaving through a human's legs! Book a Private Session today to start preparing your dog for Hollywood!

Hi! I'm Krystin Withers and I was born and raised in Southern California where we bred and trained Siberian Huskies. After serving in the United States Navy for four years, I decided to pursue my education and start a family with my best friend and husband. While raising our daughters, I earned my MBA and expanded my dog training business. Understanding dogs has always been my gift and I am so grateful I get to use my passion to change the lives of so many dogs and their owners. Since 2008, I have volunteered and fostered for a few local dog rescue organizations including Labs and More, Second Chance Dog Rescue, and Noah's Ark Dog Rescue. I am committed to continually expanding my dog training knowledge and experience by pursuing nationally recognized dog trainer certifications and courses. I am certified through the Council of Professional Dog Trainers, Knowledge Assessed. I am also an evaluator for the American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Test (Evaluator Number: 98681). When I was 8-years-old, I memorized every dog breed in the encyclopedia and since then, have worked with many of those breeds with a passion for bringing out the best in each one, especially the mixed breeds! Dogs bring me so much joy and I would be honored to meet and work with you and your pups!
