“Happy Dog” Training

Does your dog walk you instead of the other way around? Is your doggy launching at everything he sees? Do you feel your buddy is running your life?

You don’t have to live like this! There is help!

Ralf Weber from “Happy Dog” Training is a professional dog behaviorist and certified trainer (IACP CDT) who specializes in dog psychology and behavior modification. Ralf works with clients all over Southern California and can also help you.

Call for a FREE on site consultation to discuss how I can help you best. I can be reached at or (951) 444 – 8640.

I can help you resolve your dog’s misbehavior; incl. aggression, fear and anxiety or whatever else might be bothering your furry friend. I can teach him/her good doggy manners on the walk, around the house, the neighborhood or dog park. I can help you prepare your dog for the Canine Good Citizen test by the American Kennel Club (AKC), and offer private lessons as well as group classes. I have hands-on experience with all types of behavior modification and obedience training and I am particularly specialized in resolving dog aggression. I offer many fixed priced training programs with guaranteed outcomes – no other dog training company does. For instance, if you hire me to resolve your dog’s aggression, I guarantee that he/she will go to the dog park without any problems once we are done.

I will help you. I will never quit. I will never abandon you. I will fix your problems!

I am a certified dog trainer (IACP CDT) and a member of the International Association of Canine Professionals. I am also a certified AKC evaluator (S.T.A.R. Puppy, Canine Good Citizen and Community Canine). I am trained in canine first aid by the Red Cross; carry professional liability insurance and I also am skilled in the art of animal communication and a certified ReHuTek energy healer, which allows me to offer holistic solutions to your dog challenges in addition to training.

My Training Style

My training style and dog rehabilitation methods are based on a sound understanding of dog psychology and pack behavior. By combining positive reinforcement techniques for good behaviors with effective corrections for wrong behaviors I achieve fast and lasting results. I can help you build a better relationship with your canine companions, help you understand them better, teach you how to effectively communicate with your dogs and create a happy balanced partnership. Based on experience, I believe in and use Cesar Millan’s philosophy of dog psychology to improve the human/canine bond; I am also a member of the Cesar Millan Pack Leader group.

(Disclaimer: I support the Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation because I believe in their work and in Cesar’s philosophy. However, my work as a dog trainer is not endorsed by Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer TV show, Cesar Millan, Inc., the Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation, or any affiliated group or company.)

Recent Lectures

  • Friends of the Dog Park (San Dimas)
  • Veterinary Technician Association (Inland Empire)

I am available for lectures on dog related matters. To inquire about availability and rates please contact me at or (951) 444-8640.

My most popular lecture topics are Understanding Canine Behavior and Resolving Aggression.

Free on-site consultations are usually the best way to get started in understanding what is involved in addressing your particular doggy challenges. Free on-site consultations might require some mileage reimbursement depending on your location but are always waived if you decide to hire me.

Board & Train: We also offer board and train obedience packages and will work with your dog while he/she is staying with us. This type of training is usually best if you are looking for your dog to learn a new skill or trick. General behavioral issues are usually better addressed where they occur (like your home, neighborhood, etc.) and not at a less familiar place where your dog will behave differently to begin with.

Our guaranteed problem resolution programs do include some free boarding with one of our behaviorists if deemed necessary after evaluation.

Based out of Corona in Riverside County, I am currently offering dog training and behavioral modifications in the following areas: Riverside County, Orange County, San Bernardino County, Los Angeles County and San Diego County.
