Theresa Botello began working as a professional dog trainer in 1987. Over the years, she has worked with thousands of dogs of all breeds and skill levels (and their people) in group classes and private training situations throughout Orange County. As a behaviorist, she focuses on skills to effectively communicate with your dog in terms that they can understand. In doing so, you will have the ability to achieve important goals such as stopping unwanted behavior, creating an appropriate ranking system and bonding with your dog. Theresa addresses any and all behavioral issues from aggression to fear to simple in-home manners. Each training program takes into account the age and nature of the dog. Structure, follow-through, assertion and consistency delivered with patience, kindness and compassion are the cornerstones of her training method.
