Fun Paw Care believes in supporting our homeless community pets and responsible pet parents and shelters through education and dog training.
Adopters that receive a private Los Angeles dog training consultation within 30 calendar days of your dog’s adoption from a responsible shelter will receive a 10% discount off of our normal dog training rates.
In addition, if you receive our behavior modification or dog training, Los Angeles service within 30 calendar days of the dog’s adoption, the responsible shelter/rescue organization in which you adopted from will receive 20% of the cost of your dog training session as a donation back to the shelter/rescue organization where your pup came from.
A responsible shelter or rescue organization understands ethology and cognitive ethology. They follow continuing education standards in this unregulated dog training industry and the minimum criterion set forth by the Pet Professional Guild (PPG), International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC) and the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers (CCPDT), understand the science of how animals learn, advocate and support only humane treatment, fear/force-free and positive reinforcement dog training and behavior for all pets in their care. In addition, a veterinarian, shelter, dog trainer, walker, and staff should be familiar with and Certified in Fear Free Pets.
A percentage of all Fun Paw Care sales goes toward volunteering and giving back via animal advocacy, rescuing and fostering homeless dogs and cats, and giving back via free community educational seminars.

I’ve not seen a trainer with his level of experience and ability in my almost 20 years of practice in South Florida. For the people and pets that make up the VCA Animal Hospital family, there’s no one we trust more with dog training, care and behavior issues than Russell and Fun Paw Care…
Dr. Mike Tenzer, VCA Animal Hospital
As a veterinarian I have known Russell for some years… His dedication, professionalism, depth of knowledge and passion for animals are evident…The techniques he utilizes and teaches are clear and effective… I am over the moon to have his help and will not hesitate to recommend Fun Paw Care to all my clients, family and friends.
