The Proficient Pup

Dog Training To Keep North County San Diego Community Dogs Enriched, Safe, Confident And Healthy.


Having A Dog Isn’t Supposed To Be Frustrating Or Upsetting.

We understand how stressful it can be when your dog is fearful or reactive. Using Positive Reinforcement methods, we can help your dog feel more comfortable and relaxed in more situations, making both of you feel less frustrated, anxious, and afraid.

Increasing your dog’s confidence and decreasing their stressors will help bring you the joy and relief you seek.

Contact us and sign up for a consultation today! We would love to hear how we can be of service.

How We Can Help

The Proficient Pup offers a variety of services to help your pup become the best version of themselves. Our programs provide enrichment, comfort, confidence, and safety to support all aspects of your dog's mental, emotional, and physical health.


Private Dog Training

Whether you have a dog or puppy, need to address general manners, or are dealing with a shy, fearful, or anxious dog, private dog training with The Proficient Pup will show you how to train your dog effectively and ethically.


Rattlesnake Avoidance

Whether you want to keep your dog safe when out on a trail or in your backyard, rattlesnake avoidance training can give you the confidence that your dog will respond to you when you need them the most.


Canine Massage

Do you have an athlete, an older dog with mobility issues, or an anxious pup that could benefit from the relaxation that massage provides? Professional canine massage improves the health of your dog and, when paired with training, can increase your dog’s focus, engagement, and confidence.


Separation Anxiety Training

Is your dog stressed while you are away at work or doing errands? Are you coming home to destruction or a pup who has harmed themselves? Separation anxiety in your dog often leads to increased anxiety within ourselves. Separation anxiety training can be emotionally healing for both you and your doggie.


You can have a healthy and confident dog!
