I have an 8 month old 80 lb husky malamute mix. He’s my first dog so like all new dog owners I’m probably overly cautious. Spencer did an amazing job with my huge puppy. I wasn’t worried about my pup at all while I was away on business which was perfect because I was able to do my job to the best of my abilities. Spencer was willing and interested to use ...

Spencer was wonderful with Cannon, our problematic 50 lb Pit mix. Cannon is a sweetheart, but has severe separation anxiety and Spencer was not only able to get him comfortable in a crate (something we were never able to do) but even got him to calmly walk on a leash and socialize with his own dogs. I would highly recommend Spencer for any difficult training needs.

Bubsie had an awesome time and I could relax knowing he was in the care of someone who truly understands dogs.

Behavior issues? No problem!

I am a professional dog trainer/behaviorist, specializing in behavior issues such as dog and human aggression, anxiety, resource guarding, prey drive, hyper-sensitivity, etc. Basically, if your dog is a bit rough around the edges, they're my type of dog. I take great pride in my skills, and great pleasure in rehabilitating dogs, raising their self-esteem and improving their (and your) overall quality of life.

A bit about me..
I have always had a love ...

What Spencer would like to know about your dog

When Spencer watches your pet

Here's where we'll take our walks
We love going to Pt. Isabel dog park, but we also change it up by going to the many dog friendly hiking trails in the East Bay such as Tilden.

Your dog's sleeping arrangement
Your dog will sleep in their own bedroom, with my dogs. They love sharing their beds with our guests! They are also free to use the couch, if they are more solitude. We have crates for dogs that prefer.

Time I'll spend with your dog
The entire day. There may be an hour or two on occasion, but this is rare.

Time I'll spend with your dog
Most of the day, likely with my dogs as well. Unless you would prefer not.

Extra house-sitting services
No problem, I love all forms of life, including plants!
