Loved Dog

I love Tamar! My fur baby, Macie stays at Tamar’s dog center, The Loved Dog when I go on vacation, and I know she is in good hands and having a ball with all of her buddies!

Tamar Geller is a dog trainer who developed “the Loved Dog” method of dog training. After serving as an intelligence officer working with the Israeli Special Forces, she dedicated her time to observing wolves in the wild and studying how the parent canines trained their young. By using similar techniques as the wolves, she created a method of training puppies that does not involve aggression, dominance, or choke chains. Tamar’s method goes beyond positive reinforcement as she emphasize building a solid relationship with the dog based on understanding the dog as the individual that s/he is and coaching them through games and fun. She strongly oppose the training methods that want a dog to be submissive. Tamar believes in empowering the dog to be the best s/he could be. She is the founder of the first cage-free doggy boarding and day care center in Los Angeles called The Loved Dog. Her book of the same name teaches dog-owners how to train their dogs in a non aggressive way.
