“By attending “C.H.A.C.O Dog Training & Behavior Consulting LLC” classes we learned a lot and so did our standard poodle Dash. Almudena has a first-class facility with a large field for classes, within a larger securely fenced area that readily adapts to the wide range of activities she incorporates in her teaching. She is a personable and caring individual as well as a very knowledgeable professional totally committed to helping owners and their dogs.
The classes are usually small, 4 owners with their dogs, which allows some one-on-one time with Almudena when needed, and the classes are nonthreatening and fun for the dog. With her extensive knowledge, she is able to address any special problems encountered. For example, our dog had spent the first nine months of his life in a kennel being mostly ignored. Almudena really helped socialize Dash and he’s become a confident, happy dog, who likes to play and he enjoys the company of other dogs and people.” – Robb & Kate Palmer, Tesuque, NM
From participants of the Developing the Confident Dog class.
“Thanks so much for the excellent recall class that Roxie and I attended. I really enjoyed it. You teach important concepts in interesting ways, and your class is a very different experience than other classes I have taken over the years. It was very helpful and thought provoking.” – Patty Sciarrotta & Roxie

Your puppy’s proper socialization should start pronto!

Online Puppy Support Group
Registration closes: on Saturday, January 22nd, 2022, at 5 pm.
Taking your puppy to a reputable puppy class will help you and your puppy in many ways. You will learn essential skills and how to perform them correctly, allow your puppy to feel comfortable around other people, and hone crucial play skills and bite inhibition. However, because a puppy class is a busy learning environment for both puppies and their parents, it is nearly impossible to delve into detail with some of the most pressing issues puppy parents encounter at home.
The weekly 45 minutes online puppy support group is the perfect space to have your questions answered and get the help you need at home.
Here is how it works.
Members of the group submit questions about their specific situation – note that other people might be experiencing something similar and benefit from the information. You can also submit videos via my private Dropbox account so that I have a better understanding of what the situation is.
A minimum of 4 puppy parents must enroll to run the group.
It will run for eight weeks, and we will meet via Zoom once a week.
A replay of each session will be available to participants if they cannot attend the live meeting.
Fees: $107.13 (tax included) for both months.
Meeting dates: Wednesdays from 10am -10:45am.
January 26th, Feb. 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd, March 2nd, 9th, and 16th.
Please note: There are no refunds.
