Professional At-Home Dog Training
Bella Woof owner and Certified Professional Dog Trainer April Bove-Rothwell brings 20 years of training experience to your home. We understand that each dog’s personality and the bond you share are unique. For at-home training, we first get to know you and your dog better with an in-depth questionnaire. From there, April crafts a customized Behavior Modification Plan specifically for your pet. Behaviors addressed include fear/anxiety, aggression, obedience, puppy training and socialization, and basic household manners.(619) 237-0730

Pet Tested, Owner Approved
I took my dog there for puppy classes, which was so much fun and super useful. The owners are amazing and care about all their customers and everything in their shop, from products to classes to grooming. My dog's first haircut was here and their groomers did an incredible job and I continue to bring my fur baby back regularly. They're definitely your go-to place for anything regarding your pets!
