     Socialization is a huge part of what we have to offer. Dogs are fulfilled when they have the 
    opportunity to play and socialize with their own kind. This may include a romp in the park, a 
    chase in someone's backyard, or a good trek on one of the many trails on the Peninsula. Our     socialized dogs are very friendly, come in all breeds and sizes, and openly welcome newcomers. 
    They did not all start out this way. With patience and with the help of the other dogs, we work
    with yours to "teach" your dog proper behavior in any and all situations. We set boundaries and
    teach your dog to follow the rules. 
                                                                                                    
Before we begin, allow me to introduce my sweet girl Chelsea. I adopted her from a client whose daughter saved her from the streets when she was pregnant. If  you have kitties, I will care for them as if they were my own.

Yes, another photo of Chelsea. She belongs in this photo book of canines because she loves dogs yet has absolutely no tolerance for cats!

Buddy and Sadie (Golden Retrievers) enjoy a jaunt off leash on one of the trails in Rolling Hills. On trail hikes, three or four dogs is the maximum and the number is determined by their on/off leash capability.  This is for their enjoyment and security, and for the comfort of others we may encounter along the way.

Dogs 100% trained in recall are allowed to run in open fields of enclosed parks and secure trails away from streets.  This is Phoebe a few seconds after being given a new rope toy.

For those not trained in recall and even for those who are, we are fortunate to have secure backyards to use for socializing and play. Here Phoebe takes a nice run with Sherman (Bulldog) at a home in Lunada Bay.

Training is a large part of what we do. In order to keep dogs happy and content, boundaries are a necessity. These 4 month Shihtzus could hardly sit still long enough to have their photo taken.

 A few training sessions later, they sit patiently without fuss. Starting your puppies early on training and socializing will help them grow into well balanced and confident dogs.

Ringo was 4 months when we began working with him. He is just over one year now and loves playing with dogs of all sizes. Small dogs do not know they are small and need to be trained just like the large dogs. When trained and socialized properly, they can easily play with dogs and breeds of all sizes as long as the other dogs are trained and socialized as well. It is never too late for them to learn.

We take advantage of the car to begin our training. While the dogs travel to a fun destination, they also learn proper car etiquette. At 5 months, Ringo and Zeke already know to sit quietly together, and to remain seated when the car stops and the doors are opened.

Remember 5 month Ringo from prior photo? Now 1 year old, Ringo is able to help train the others. Ringo and Kalea (1 year Vizsla) are helping 6 month Lola (Lab) learn recall, sit and wait. There is a huge benefit in having trained dogs around to assist in helping the ones who are learning. The new learn by example.

Ginger (left) is our "mother hen" and loves to care for the puppies. All dogs during socialization time are monitored continually and closely. Puppies are carefully introduced on a one-on-one basis to insure they are not overwhelmed or frightened.

Swimming is also a part of socializing. Whether it is full sized or an above ground pool like this one, the offer of water always guarantees a fun time. Sprinklers and the hose work as well.

Kalea (Vizsla) is one of our water dogs and would rather be swimming then on dry land. It also provides a wonderful opportunity to loosen up her muscles after long treks on the trails.

And then there is Ginger who will go in any sprinkler and play in any hose yet won't go beyond the first step of the pool. It doesn't make much sense because when she is put in the pool, she is a phenomenal swimmer and seems to rather enjoy it!

With water comes mud, and what dog doesn't like a good roll in the mud after going for a swim. Ringo is no exception. Thank goodness his wonderful owner cares more about him having a good time than whether he comes home sparkling clean.  Here he is on the way home after receiving a much needed bath.

Chief (now socialized),  Ginger, Kalea and Sawyer reap the benefits of being able to play and run together. Dogs are social creatures. Lack of socialization leads to a very unbalanced dog.

Domino (Dalmation) is one of our great success stories. Dog aggressive for 9-1/2 years, we set out to change that. We placed Domino with Ginger and Kalea, two dogs with a calm and friendly nature. With their patience and our guidance, Domino learned to trust enough to be able to go on her first group hike. So rewarding.

We didn't stop there. Here Domino is taking a hike with Chief, the red lab banned from day care centers for being uncontrollable. Working with Chief to overcome his insecurities allowed him to be able to walk with others in a calm and controlled manner. Day care centers were too stimulating for him and made him anxious. Chief learned basic socialization skills in a backyard setting under direct supervision.

Back to Domino, the Dalmation. Each opportunity advances her a bit further in our efforts to remove her dog aggression. This step depicts her able to travel in the car with another dog as long as she stays in the rear seat and not too close. She did however come forward to have her photo taken as she is a bit of a ham.

Hurray!! Domino has since graduated to being able to sit in the rear seat next to other dogs.  Very promising for this once aggressive pooch.

Domino moved right along with her training. A dog who was once unable to be 20 feet from another dog without starting a fight can now be off leash with Ginger and Kalea, two dogs she was paired with to help her learn to trust. The next step will be to see if she will be comfortable enough to play with them. Although this is our ultimate goal, the fact that she is already able to be among other dogs without any sign of aggression is reward enough.

Success. Domino is seen here playing fetch off leash with Ginger. You can tell Domino still has a bit of alpha in her by the size of the stick she just picked up. Hard to see, but it must be 6 feet long. Silly girl.

Rocky (Standard Poodle) and Kalea (Vizsla), tear it up on an open trail one early morning. All trail dogs are trained to respect and ignore horses they may encounter. They are contained and asked to sit while the horses walk by.

Puppies, we love puppies. Meet Maddie, a 4 month Cocker Spaniel who was dumped on the highway with her brother. Fearful of cars, Rani the pug was placed beside her to keep her calm. It took 15 car rides and the help of other dog companions before Maddie was able to overcome her fear. Knowing she is going somewhere fun, she now happily jumps in.

Meet part of "the posse" as we and their owners tend to refer to them. This group ranges from 3 years to 6 months. They have all been taught proper play etiquette and know how to turn the play off when asked to do so. Such a fun group. Lab/Spaniel, Pug, Vizsla, Cocker and Poodle mix.

Although small, Rani (pug)  and Ringo love to play with the "big" dogs (prior photo). The larger dogs are trained to be gentle when the small dogs join in chase.

Butters and Sawyer playing on a safe and private trail. Butters, an experienced off leash dog is helping Sawyer learn the ropes. It is a step by step process and not all dogs are able to do so. That is where the backyards come in handy and where off leash training begins for those who can.

Eight month Arwen (dark terrier mix), a new addition in August  2011. New dogs are carefully matched and placed with another dog based on their personality and needs. Arwen was somewhat fearful so she was placed with playful and friendly Ringo. Dogs will be introduced to Arwen one at a time to keep her from being overwhelmed.

Arwen was quick to trust Ringo so when introduced to the others, Ringo came along to help Arwen feel secure. As a result, Arwen is one of our most social dogs and loves everybody, large or small. Introduction to socialization is a step by step process to make sure each new dog feels secure along the way.

Sweet Bear was a new addition in August 2011. Sweet as he was, he was also fearful of new things including other dogs. His fear caused him to nip and bark, and shy away from people who got too close.

We began working on Bear's fear of dogs. Nurturing Kalea was placed in the car to help put him at ease. Over the course of time, dogs were introduced to Bear in the comfort of his own backyard. This helped him learn to trust not only the dogs but us as well. On the sixth visit, he was taken to someone else's backyard with a group of dogs that he had come to know.

With the group, Bear did better than expected. He had absolutely no fear playing with the others and cheerfully posed for a photo between Kalea and Sawyer. Wet and muddy, Bear got a quick bath before returning home for a nap.

Pico is a our third new addition (Aug 2011). He was another sweet boy fearful of dogs and became aggressive when they came too close. Again, Kalea was brought in to sit next to Pico in the car. Her calm and sweet demeanor put Pico at ease on the way to the trail.

Pico was helped further with his fear by having Kalea walk him. A three foot leash connects the two as Pico willingly trots along after her.

Still connected by leash, Bear and Kalea are joined by Domino. Prior to this day, specific steps were taken to insure that Bear was comfortable with the other two dogs. This was a very successful walk for a little boy with trust issues.

Another new addition (Oct 2011). Nicky (white) had a rough start and middle but will definitely have a happy ending. After 8 years, his prior owners just decided to give him up. He was given a second chance by being adopted from the pound into a loving home. Never having been socialized with humans or dogs, special efforts are being made to help him overcome his fears and insecurities. He is seen here with three of his new friends.

  Although Nicky has yet to "play" with the others in a backyard setting (it will take some time to overcome 8 years of isolation), the excitement of being in the wide open space  of a trail causes him to forget his fears.  He is a perfect off leash dog now and is usually accompanied by Kalea who naturally waits for any dog that lags a bit behind.

The opportunity of being outdoors far exceeds Nicky's nervousness of being in the company of other dogs. Each adventure and outing helps him a little bit more to become the dog he was meant to be. This day he was joined by Kalea and Sky.

Meet Louie, our latest addition (Nov 2011). He is a 4 month old Labradoodle and the winner of our cutest dog of the month.  Don't you just love him? This is his first day on his way to meet the first of many friends to come.  Puppies are initially introduced slowly and carefully to specific dogs so they will not be overwhelmed.

One half hour later, Louie's nice fluffy and clean coat is water logged from playing in the wet grass in a backyard setting. His first day was a great success, so much so, that he is already trained well enough to go off leash on secured trails. He is a natural.

Remember dog aggressive Domino from 2011? She can now be placed with any dog without incident. She found out life is more enjoyable when she is nice to others. Her owner swears we switched dogs. Rani, the pug, who is always nice, is one of the dogs who helped Domino along the way.

Meet Freddie, the Frenchie. Although training includes teaching the dogs not to jump, I couldn't resist taking his photo as he stood on my leg and looked up with such a sweet face. Plus, it was Christmas Day so he got a bit of a break.

This is my black and white photo. Two black dogs and two white. They reminded me of a black and white checkerboard. Nicki (white Maltese to the rear) is the showcase here. He was the one who was extremely aggressive to both canine and humans when he came to us. As you can see, old dogs "can" learn new tricks. The trail is still his favorite outing.

Great news. I now have my own house with a huge yard for social hours. The yard is double secured for dog safety. A picket fence protects the driveway access and an electric gate secures the driveway to the street. The remainder of the yard is protected by a block wall.

The yard is large enough to handle several dogs at a time. Henry and Chief are seen here checking out the smells from other dogs that have already left their mark. Social hours provided great relief from the recent heat wave offering  shade trees and cold water from the hose.

Kiana, Chief, Henry and Primo take a break after an hour of play that included chase, fetch and running through the hose. My yard provides a great opportunity for dogs to socialize and learn proper etiquette skills. The dogs absolutely love it, and they are returned home tired and happy.

It didn't take long for Annie to get the swing of things. Here she is on the trail with Ringo (left) and Nicky (right). The three are connected to one another and since Ringo and Nicky are off leash trained, they are helping Annie learn the ropes of being off leash herself. This situation provides a perfect opportunity to teach Annie recall as she will need to return to the handler when the other two are asked to come. This is a win, win situation.

Dogs can learn new tricks and they can learn to trust another. Kiana and Petra were both fear aggressive towards other dogs when Carolyn first began working with them. With patience and by placing them with different dogs and situations during different phases of their progress, they have both overcome their behavioral issues. Here they sit next to each other in the car without any problem. They just got done with a good bout of social hour in Carolyn's backyard.

Crazy Chief helping fearful Petra trust other dogs. Chief even placed his paws on her legs in friendship. This was not a dominant move on his part. Just a friendly move. Two dogs that most people would have never believed could be together without fighting. Don't give up on your dog if there is aggression. Most situations can be resolved.

Here Petra is settling in for the night at Carolyn's house. The perfect house guest. Over a several week period, the two have spent several hours together working on some serious behavioral issues that Petra had. During that time, a good rapport has been built resulting in Petra being able to stay in Carolyn's home for a few nights stress free. Carolyn will not bring dogs home for the night unless she knows they will be calm and content away from their own home.

This is one of our advanced socials for high energy dogs. Each dog began one on one with other dogs to build trust and confidence. As they progressed, they were introduced to more and more dogs until they were able to be placed into this group. There are social groups of all levels to fit your specific dogs needs.
