Why choose a CCPDT-accredited trainer?

About the Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers

Veterinarians generally prefer to refer patients to trainers who have attained the CPDT-KA (knowledge assessed) distinction.  This nationally-recognized certification requires years of experience; references from veterinarians, colleagues and clients; and a formal examination to confirm expertise and proficiency in dog learning theory, canine husbandry, and ethology—the scientific study of animal behavior.

Off-leash adventures

Parks and preserves for exercising your dog off-leash

One bonus of dog training is that a well-trained mutt enjoys more freedom in off-leash settings. San Francisco Dog Trainer Jeff Stallings' Training PhilosophyI have researched and hiked many gorgeous Bay Area beaches, parks and preserves that allow well-trained dogs off-leash. So take a hike with your best friend while enjoying the Bay Area’s ample natural beauty.

Contacting Jeff

May 12, 2018

I am currently out of the office with little phone or Internet access. Accordingly, I have temporarily removed contact information from this website. My contact information will be reinstated the week of May 28; my earliest appointments are in late June.


Current clients:  Please send an email or leave a voicemail using the contact information you have for me. I will be returning these calls and emails immediately upon my return.


Other inquiries:  Please return to this website on May 28, at which time point I will reinstate contact information.


In the meantime, if you need to get in touch with a trainer, I recommend Josh Boutelle from City Pups SF for general training, and veterinarian/behaviorist Dr. Keely Commins for more severe aggression and separation anxiety:
