Sasha Futran, In the Company of Dogs

I provide positive reinforcement dog training classes in Berkeley and private behavior modification consultations and sessions in your home throughout the East Bay. All dog training is fun with the emphasis on clearly communicating what is expected and rewarding the behavior.

Privately, I work with all issues, particularly dog aggression towards other dogs or people, separation anxiety, shy/fearful dogs and puppy training. Private sessions are efficiently geared towards your needs and concerns.

Dog training classes include: Puppy Socialization, Beginning and Intermediate Obedience and special workshops in recall (coming when called), walking without pulling, and not jumping on people.

Classes are in Berkeley. Behavior Modification Consultations available throughout the East Bay including: Berkeley, Oakland, Alameda, Piedmont, Montclair, Oakland Hills, Moraga, El Cerrito, Richmond, Hercules, Pinole, San Pablo, El Sobrante, Lafayette, Pleasant Hill, Walnut Creek, Orinda, and more.

A dog advocate, I have published articles on dog training, food and vaccination issues, and living with dogs.

After studying with nationally known dog trainer Trish King, I received my Canine Consultant and Instructor Certificate from the Marin Humane Society where I also assisted in behavior modification consultations and dog temperament testing. In addition, I am also a former assistant in dog training classes at the Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society and a member of the national Association of Pet Dog Trainers.

I continue to get much needed 'cat fixes' during cat care visits in Berkeley, Albany, Kensington, El Cerrito, and parts of Oakland near the Berkeley border. When you can't be there, I provide companionship, food, clean up, and plant care.
