Los Angele's Most Experienced & Complete Dog Training Company
It all started in 1956. Home training didn't exist. Howard Finkelstein placed an ad in the New York Times pet section.
"Dog Training In Your Home With You."
Home training for your dog proved to be very popular & effective ,and other trainers followed.
The dog home training industry was born.
Howard's dog training skills, which are based on the science of behavior modification, and a reward system of love not treats became well known. And he developed his early training method, which proved that puppies as young as eight weeks when trained, broaden their IQ, retain their training, and develop better social skills.
Soon Howard founded Animal Artists, an agency devoted to supplying animals for commercial and theatrical purposes. Early television programs like Merv Griffin's "Play Your Hunch", and others were frequent clients. Broadway shows like Tennessee Williams "A Period Of Adjustment" and "Oliver" soon followed. Then Francis Ford Copola's movie contracted Howard to train and handle an Old English Sheepdog and a chicken for his first movie "You're A Big Boy Now."
All this time training dogs for clients, in their homes remained the focus of Howard's long career, along with training dogs for personal and business security, and for police departments.
In 1989, seeking the California experience, Howard located his business and life to Los Angeles, where he concentrated once again on home obedience dog training. Then in 2012 he established Pinnacle Pet Services to fill several needs.
Located in South Pasadena "The Pinnacle" continues to be his base for Home Dog Training. "The Pinnacle" also offers other training options that include kennel and daycare training. With a staff of personally trained professionals, Pinnacle Pet Services offers the best Dog Training in Los Angeles.
