- puppy nipping
- puppy development stages
- the importance of proper puppy socialization
- how compassion and patience are required in order to raise a happy, healthy puppy
rebecca mandell started dog’s best friend in 2004 when she became increasingly alarmed by the physically and emotionally damaging methods utilized by many dog trainers.
as a positive reinforcement dog trainer, rebecca believes in training dogs with compassion and understanding, helping to build the bond between dogs and humans, so the dogs do what we ask of them because they want to, not because they are frightened or intimidated.
rebecca was voted “best dog trainer” in the 2012 south bay locals’ choice awards. she is a long time resident of hermosa beach, alongside her husband, corey, and her puppy training assistant, cooper, a calm and gentle golden retriever.
