Wendi Okabayashi Dog Training is located in Murrieta, California. This company offers private lessons, group obedience classes and specializes in training therapy and service dogs. Please call today to schedule an appointment or sign up for a group class.
All classes meet one hour each week for 6 weeks. You will receive demonstrations, hands on instruction and time to practice with your dog. Various dog behaviors will be discussed and there will be time for questions and answers concerning these topics. At the end of each class, you will be given weekly homework assignments for you and your family to practice during the week. Class sizes are kept small to ensure success and quality time with the trainer.
Dogs will learn eye contact, sit, down, walking nicely on leash, recalls, auto sits, wait, stay, leave-it and heel. The instructor will teach you how to bond with your dog and establish leadership using positive training methods.
After completing Paws l, the dogs will be challenged by adding duration (2-3 minute stays), distance (working 30 feet from your dog) and major distractions to all of their commands. You will learn how to keep your dog focused while balls are bouncing, toys are squeaking, dogs are playing and food is tossed right under its nose. Dogs and handlers will enjoy this upbeat class filled with fun challenges that reinforce advanced behaviors.
Is your dog digging up the backyard, jumping on your guests, toileting in the house, stealing food, nipping at your children, bolting out the front door, barking all day, pulling on walks, lunging at other dogs while leashed, growling at other dogs or people etc.? Does this sound like your dog? If your answer is “Yes” call and make an appointment today. The trainer will come to your home, evaluate your dog, address the concerns you are having with your dog, offer you tips on how to stop the undesirable behavior and explain what may be causing your dog to act in such a way. At the end of your lesson, you will have a better understanding of your dog and will be equipped with necessary tools for success. My goal is to help you train your dog so it will be an enjoyable member of your family.

Wendi Okabayashi is the heart behind “Wendi Okabayashi DogTraining”. At an early age, she taught her dogs to hold still while she dressed them, deliver mail to each family member, balance on their back paws, dance, sing, retrieve items and much more. At that
time, she never imagined a foundation was being built which lead her to a successful,career, specializing in dog training and dog behavior. Wendi studied across the nation under the top dog trainers and animal behaviorists in her field. Her success is largely credited to her extensive knowledge of dogs and 28 years of teaching. Since the year 2000, Wendi has trained over a thousand pets and their owners.
She has an amazing connection to dogs and people and a special way of communicating to both. After a thorough evaluation of you and your dog(s), Wendi will set you up on customized training program which guarantees success. Wendi has an incredible passion for helping people and has volunteered nearly 10 years of her time to an organization called Paw Pals Assistance Dogs www.paw-pals.org. She sat on the board as the California Regional Director and was one of the Advanced Trainers. She enjoys training service dogs to enhance the lives of others and to give them independence. Wendi is actively involved with Pet Partners and has helped many of her students prepare and pass the requirements to become a Pet Partners therapy team.
Wendi spent many years visiting local convalescent homes, a group home for abused children and attended special camps for children with burn injuries. Wendi says “There is a great joy in my heart when I know I can do something to make a difference in the
lives of others”. Wendi would like to thank all of her students, families, friends, local veterinarians, local dog business owners, local breeders and rescue groups who continually send her referrals. Her company continues to thrive primarily by word of mouth.
