Here at Coolabah Dog Training, we welcome all breeds, sizes and ages. We focus on modern fear free training methods with loads of positive reinforcement.
Positive reinforcement is extremely effective in encouraging the behaviours we want to see in a dog. It can be more effective longterm as learning accompanied with positive feelings and associations is more likely to be remembered.
We believe that training must always be respectful, kind and fair to each individual dog and owner to set both up for success.
At Coolabah Dog Training, we encourage and assist dog owners to build and maintain a strong bond with their dog(s) that is based on trust.
We are helping people and dogs in Vista, Oceanside, San Marcos, Carlsbad and Encinitas.
I’m Tessy. I always had a genuine passion for all animals, especially dogs. I grew up with Elvis, the Rottweiler and Barry, the little Dachshund Mix, along with several cats, hamsters, birds and guinea pigs.
My husband Mike and I share our house with Luna, the beautiful brindle Pit Mix, who is turning 13 years old this year and Tux, a wild but adorable mix of Rottweiler, Great Dane, Pit and traces of Husky. He turned into a little bit of a troublemaker and became very hard to handle around other dogs, so we started to work with the wonderful Lindsey, a fellow dog trainer who inspired me to follow my passion and become a dog trainer myself.
I am a strong advocate for force and fear free training methods.
In my free time I can be found at a local Animal Shelter volunteering or spending time with my husband and dogs.

This is a great option for people with a busy schedule that want their dogs to learn the basics such as: Sit, Wait, Stay, Recall and polite leash walking. This program can also be tailored to help your dog to become less reactive or fearful to certain triggers such as dogs, strangers, cars, bicycles etc. approaching when out on a walk. We pick up your dog and provide an hour of exercise, mental stimulation and training during a walk around your neighbourhood or nearby parks. Owners are required to meet once a week for a 30 Minute summary and transfer lesson, if booking multiple Walk & Train sessions per week. We will provide a training summary, follow up instructions, valuable handouts etc. after Walk & Train sessions. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for more details.
