The Ultimate Dog training Program

From Rambunctious To Well-Mannered Pup

Group Dog training Classes in a Costa Mesa Facility
for Pups at Least 4 Months Old 

Whether your dog struggles on your walks

. . . or not come back to you consistently when you call them

. . . or jumps too enthusiastically on you and your guests

Let’s focus on changing these behaviors during the group classes so you can

-- witness your dog listening when you ask them to sit or drop-it

-- enjoy your walks without embarrassing barks, lunges or jumping  

-- let out a sigh of relief when your dog waits at the front door instead of running out  

-- Create the lifestyle you wanted when you first brought home your dog.

-- Hear those compliments from your neighbors and guests:
‘you have such a well-behaved dog'.

-- Be proud of your dog as they settle on their bed when people come over.

Imagine those sits, downs and stays consistently offered by your dog
We cover these in the group classes. . . 

But let's also teach your pup to: 

🐾 Walk Without Pulling

🐾 Disengage Instead Of Barking & Lunging

🐾 Chew On Toys Instead Of Furniture And Shoes

🐾 Greet People Without Jumping

🐾 Come When Called (Recall)

🐾 Chill & Relax On Their Own



Experience an engaging training system that's fun with thrilling breakthroughs.
Build that amazing bond and create clear communication skills with your pup.
I see so many smiles as pup parents progress through the classes and witness their dog's transformation

I'm Linda The Dog Trainer . . .
And That's Jill in the Pic with Me--

I focus on helping pet parents with puppies, teen dogs and rescues start their journey on the right paw. I want to help them avoid the typical mistakes, but sometimes we are called in to help with behavior modification for pulling like a train on walks, barking at anyone at the door, jumping on people, barking and lunging at other dogs and people, and many more issues.

I grew up with dogs and live with several now, Danny and Jill. But Jack is the one who opened my world to fostering and other pursuits to help other dogs in need.

When you tell me that you feel overwhelmed and exhausted about what you are dealing with, I know what you mean. Jack was a over-reactive dog that I could not keep under threshold when other people came up to us when we were on a leash.

I realized Jack was not the only dog with these issues, which brought me to what I love doing now----To help the other Jacks in the world so you can have a less stressful life with your dog.

We can help with personalized training in your home, in-person group classes or through interactive online classes or self-study options. The in-home and group classes include opportunities to practice in real life scenerios in different Costa Mesa locations. Thank you for visiting Wow Bow Wow! You are an amazing pet parent to come here looking for answers, solutions & support. Let's chat about your dog and how I can help.

What Pup Parents Say About Their Experience Training With Me

Improved on recall and leash walking

 "Linda is amazing with the dogs! We have used her for private training of our 2 Frenchies Whatley and Estelle. Her tips and tricks have helped us improved on recall and leash walking. We highly recommend her for any of your dog training needs. "  --Violet & Dan

Wealth of knowledge with dogs and dog behaviors

 "Linda is very easy to work with and is a wealth of knowledge with dogs and dog behaviors. She is very thorough and has great follow up. We are very happy with our puppy training experience."  --Jennifer & James

Dedicated to helping you with your dog, and really wants you to succeed

 "Linda is an excellent trainer/consultant. We came to her with a 7-year-old foster who had spent his entire life outdoors. She gave us many strategies for working with him, and we are on our way to “teaching an old dog new tricks”! We are currently working on recall. She has given us a number of strategies that I would never have thought of, and our dog is actually coming when I call him! The live video sessions are also very useful, and she provides handouts that we can print. She is dedicated to helping you with your dog, and really wants you to succeed." --Jan & Dennis

Keep Your Sanity As You Raise Your Rambunctious Pup

Instead of becoming frustrated. . .
🐾 imagine strolls with your dog in your neighborhood where you can enjoy the sights and they can enjoy their sniffari adventure
🐾 picture your pup politely greeting your guests instead of jumping and accidently knocking them over.

You'll witness quicker results through this comprehensive program.  Step by step, you'll learn how to train your pup, prevent or change unwanted behaviors and what to do when they occur.  

What's included in the program:

Learn How To Be Consistent In Your Training

"Linda is very patient and was good with constructive comments. We learned quite a bit in the 6 week training course. Being consistent with command words is very important and to use different words for different commands not to confuse the dog. For instance DOWN to lay down and OFF to get off (whether its off of you or furniture etc). Linda was interested in helping each of us with our dogs individual issues and gave many good recommendations. It was a pleasure working with her."  
--Donna & Charles  


Enjoy Their Walks

"My boyfriend and I took Linda's 6 week rambunctious puppy  training course with our border collie puppy, Lluvia, a few months ago. We thought it was terrific! We learned how to use treats and positive reinforcement to get Lluvia to do what we want her to do and Lluvia learned how to pay attention to us on our walks and become less distracted as a result. We highly recommend this course!" -- Rachel & Pat


Raise A Confident Dog

"Linda Kwoun was a wonderful supportive teacher for my Rambunctious Puppy. Ruby is far more socialized than she was before this class and much easier to handle because of what I learned." --Lee


Well-Mannered Dog

We have been so pleased with the training tools and support we received from Linda’s guidance. Her expertise in training and astute ability to work with each individual and their dogs allows her to provide the best training to each family. She provided us with demonstrations of techniques and evaluates calmly and kindly. Our dog came out of the show ring and needed guidance on walking on a leash, managing his enthusiasm for life and managing his relationship with other dogs. After 4 weeks and a lot of continued practice, we are happy to say that we enjoy him much more and he continues to learn and improve. We would recommend Linda and wish we had contacted her sooner! --Marcia & Mike

The adolescent developmental period begins around 4-6 months of age and lasts until about 18-24 months. This varies by breed and these ages are approximate.  

Adolescence is when your puppy become more independent, and more interested in the outside world.    
Because of the brain changes, hormonal changes and growth of a dog’s body, a dog’s behavior will also change.  They can lose their understanding of the training they’ve had.  

Teenage dogs have a harder time paying attention to you because everything else is so much more interesting!!  

You're probably saying things like:  "What The EFF Is Wrong With My Dog?"  

Answer:   Maybe they are too EXCITED, FRUSTRATED or FEARFUL to Learn or Listen.  

Do You Need Help With These Types Of Issue?

Lowering Excitement

There will be times when your adolescent dog gets really excited or frustrated by something that happens in the environment around them. This can cause them to start barking, pulling, grabbing, jumping or tugging amongst other behaviors you don't want. It can be hard for your dog to calm themselves down. Learn how to calm your over-excited, barking dog.

Emergency Escape Solutions

"U-Turns" is one of the escape methods that may help when you see distractions your dog might struggle with up ahead. Learn several escape methods as we continue to train your dog. These are great tools to have in your training toolbox as we progress with your dog to be less reactive.

Regaining Your Dog's Attention 

There will be times when your teenage dog loses focus and becomes distracted by things in the environment. Sometimes these distractions can cause your dog to become frustrated, worried or overly excited. They are not being stubborn.  Learn how to regain your dog's attention so they can listen and do what you ask. 

Teaching A Walking Position

One of the best exercises to help your dog learn to walk calmly by your side involves teaching your dog the position you would like them to walk in, before you even attach the leash. We are here to walk you through this, so you can be more successful when you attach the dog leash.

Even if your dog is older, are you struggling with the same behavior issues?  This program is the right one for you and your dog.

Frequently Asked Questions

At the end of the day, I only want you to join my Rambunctious Pup Training Program if you know, without a doubt, that it’s the missing link between you and creating the life you want with your dog.
If you’re still on the fence, chances are at least one or two of these questions has been on your mind.    

Let’s jump in! So far here are the most common questions:  

In short, the busier you are, the MORE you need to focus about 15 minutes a day with your dog. And I get it. You’re a super busy person with a million things on your plate. That’s why Rambunctious Pup Training Program was built with one thing in mind: Implementation. We’ve laid out all the steps in crystal clear fashion so that you don’t have to worry about being your own “project manager.” Instead, you just have to block off at least 15 minutes a day, dive in, and follow the step-by-step processes that guide you towards raising that well-mannered pup.

Yep! I don’t want you to foot the bill unless my Rambunctious Pup Training Program really is the missing link between you and raising your well-mannered pup. Once you join, you’ll be invited to test things out for 14 days before making a final commitment. If you do the work (attend the classes or watch the recording and implement the shared steps) but decide this course is not right for you, just let us know and we will refund your investment.

You’re not the only technophobe to enroll in Rumbunctious Pup Training Program. I’ve got you covered, my friend. The sessions are in-person.  And the supplemental material (handouts and videos) of my program is accessible on my user friendly teaching platform.  I am here to get you started and comfortable with accessing my program's supplemental material.

For some dogs, joining an in-person group class can be too much. They have difficulties learning and listening when they are overwhelmed with other dogs, people and a new environment with lots of new smells and sights to explore.

For my in-person program, I actually address this issue by asking the pup parents to start teaching their pup to "chill on the magic mat" at home before they come to the first in-person session.

But for those dogs that get extremely overwhelmed in new environments and situations, my virtual option may be the perfect start for your rambunctious pup. Virtual class option starts them in the environment (their home) that feels safe and where they can focus for successful training. Then we move on to in-person sessions.  Another option is to invest in my private in-home training program.
