Freedom, choice and possibilities for small dogs and their owners
My name is Erica and I’m the founder of DogLove San Diego. I’ve owned small dogs my entire life and I have self trained each one since they were eight weeks old. As a highly energetically sensitive person, working with dogs has come natural as I am able to pick up on their energy and who they are. I’ve been called a dog whisperer, a title that often makes me blush. It’s such a joy and has always felt rewarding to teach my puppies new life skills and behaviors that would last a lifetime. It was no different when I got my current dog, a pug named Sampson, who was the inspiration behind DogLove.
Through trial and error, I learned that traditional boarding and daycare facilities were not a good fit for him. I have nothing against them, he just did not thrive in that type of environment. What I wanted in a boarding and daycare facility was for him to be looked after by someone that cared for him just as much as I did (was that even possible?). I wanted them to develop a strong bond with him. I wanted him to be happy and stress-free. Whether I was at work or on vacation, I wanted not to worry about him and, I certainly did not want him to be caged up or (equally worse) left outside to “play all day.” After all, dogs need a lot of rest. This place, unfortunately, did not exist until DogLove.
Sampson’s well-being was so important to me that I became a certified dog trainer and now I help other small dog owners in my community. My motto in training, boarding and daycare is to take things S L O W. I believe that everyone can have a well behaved dog and that giving a dog and their owners a choice is powerful and empowering.
Is this you?
You just brought home a new puppy and are feeling overwhelmed.
Your dog currently attends daycare but he’s about to get kicked out for “acting out.”
Your dog is your baby and you haven’t found anyone trustworthy or responsible enough to leave them with, making it challenging for you to plan trips.
How would it feel to go on vacation and not feel guilty about leaving your pup behind?
And, wouldn’t it be great if they did not pick up any bad habits?
What if you had a well-trained dog? What would that do for you?
Dogs are family and when it comes to their care, DogLove offers you endless possibilities and freedom.
Our goal is simple. To help make your life a little easier!
