Whether you have a new puppy, an older dog, or you just picked up a new friend from a shelter or rescue group, Beverly will teach you how to get your dog to respond. Is he too aggressive? A little scared? Does she not listen to your commands? Is this your first dog, or maybe your first dog of this breed? Or, are you looking to find your furry soulmate? Check out our dog matchmaking service, “The Dog Sommelier”.


Every dog has his or her own personality and needs. Training classes are fine for getting some of the basics down, but for real training – that meets your and your dog’s personal needs – you need individualized, one-on-one time. And that’s what Beverly offers. After your initial consultation, Beverly will tailor the training to meet your exact needs and requirements. She will help you do whatever is required for success.

“The Pooch Coach San Francisco Dog Trainer has been rated A+ from the Better Business Bureau for our entire 12 years.”
