Family Owned San Diego Dog Training Business

45+ Years of Combined Professional Training Experience

SDT believes in helping you create an unbreakable bond with your dog and a relationship of love and mutual respect. We also believe in utilizing positive reinforcement, structure, appropriate discipline and good clear communication between you and your pet to achieve the finest results. Your canine is unique for many reasons: breed, age, appearance, genetics, environment, past experiences and general personality. For this reason, we believe in customizing canine training programs that fit your puppy and your lifestyle.

SDT also believes in giving back!! We are partnered with local rescues and other wonderful charities to give back where we can. Our most prominent relationship is with our very own charity partner, Shelter to Solider. Specialty Dog Training is the founding partner of STS and donates time, space, staffing and funds to this incredible organization. We are continuously giving back to our community, our military and pets in need. Call or email us today to speak with a dog training expert!
