 Dog Training in Los Angeles

Dog Savvy Los Angeles

Dog Savvy Los Angeles specializes in game-based dog and puppy training and solving problem dog behaviors like canine separation anxiety, leash reactivity, excessive barking and aggression. Our positive approach to dog training incorporates motivational games of choice that build your bond with your dog while teaching them good manners. This method is not only fun, fast, and easy to learn for both you and your dog, it's also based in science!

dOGUMENTA Los Angeles

America’s first art exhibition for dogs, dOGUMENTA opens at FIGat7th in DTLA over two weekends in September! We are excited that professional dog trainers from The Los Angeles Positive Dog Trainer Alliance will be assisting daily with the event.

 The Los Angeles Positive Dog Trainer's Alliance will be providing an on-site staff of dog trainers to assist with dOGUMENTA Los Angeles.

Not by or about dogs, dOGUMENTA is a curated art show FOR dogs. This FREE event takes place September 14-16 and 21-23 from 11 am to 6 pm daily.

Each Sunday will feature an onsite mobile dog adoption. Friday, September 21 will feature a Yappy Hour from 4 - 6 pm. No ticket is needed for entry to the Yappy Hour.

Featured artworks by eight LA-based artists address the canine sensibility through a variety of media—from sound and sculpture to kibble and squeaky toys.

“After sniffing around the LA art world we dug up a group of amazing artists offering fresh perspectives on the issues and interests of 4-legged patrons,” dOGUMENTA founding curator Jessica Dawson said of the show’s LA iteration. “We can’t wait to unleash a whole new litter of artworks that West Coast culture hounds can explore for themselves.”

Reserving a ticket is strongly encouraged and guarantees entry. Reserving a ticket constitutes your agreement to the waiver in the description. PLEASE SELECT A TICKET BY DATE AND WINDOW OF ARRIVAL. Walk-ins will be let into the exhibit on a first come, first served basis.

One dog per person and that dog must be on a leash. Humans welcome!
