A leader in the dog training industry has opened a new training center.

HUNTINGTON BEACH, CALIFORNIA, USA, April 14, 2022 / — According to The New York Times, demand for dog training is high nationwide. That’s why World of Dog Training representatives are proud to announce today the opening of a new training facility in South Bay LA/LBC owned by Kim Prapavat.

“We are thrilled about this,” said Ryan Matthews, celebrity dog ​​trainer and combat veteran, founder, CEO and spokesperson for World Of Dog Training. Matthews has successfully trained over 3,000 pet dogs, written two dog training books, and given two TEDx talks on dogs (“Overcoming PTSD Using Dog Training Techniques” and “Let’s Treat- us more like dogs”).

As for becoming the new owner of the new training facility, Prapavat, who has been involved in the pet industry for over 15 years and has worked as a buyer for several major pet food and product brands and is now in the process of creating personalized experiences. for dogs and their owners, said she loves connecting with customers and seeing those “ah-ha” moments with their dogs.

Prapavat revealed that when it came time to train her own dog in 2018, she was trained by world renowned K9 Personal Protection trainer Donell Watson, the founder of South Bay Malinois.

“In 2018, my father gave me a five-month-old Belgian Malinois named Frankie – at the time I was vice-president of a wholesale distribution company, where I was the main buyer of animal products. company,” Prapavat recalled. “I was lucky enough to be able to bring Frankie to work with me every day, but soon discovered that she was no ordinary ‘companion dog’. Frankie was not well socialized and was very reactive, meaning she growled and lunged at strangers, barked at other dogs, and viewed everyone as a threat. I did my best to educate myself about Frankie and the Belgian Malinois breed and found that I had to put a lot of work into it or else I would have to give it up; he was a working dog that needed a job. Frankie needed a lot of physical and mental stimulation, and that’s when I fell in love with dog training.

After studying various canine activities, Prapavat said, Frankie excelled in agility, Frisbee and personal protection.

“Working with Frankie, I also discovered more about myself,” Prapavat said, adding, “I learned to be patient and present in my daily life, especially working with people and their dogs. My long term career goal was to follow my dreams, quit my corporate job and train dogs full time. Fast forward to 2021; I quit my corporate job over 20 years old and made the decision to pursue my dreams in dog training. Every day I wake up excited to work with new people and meet new people to help them build a stronger bond. with their dogs.

Prapavat, according to Matthews, has a wealth of experience, including:

• Co-founded a working dog supply company, Stealth K9
• Co-founded Pawsitive Energy, a non-profit organization that helps local communities and their pets.
• Animation of obedience workshops for other trainers and handlers.
• Testing agility and obstacle course equipment with dogs I trained in the first season of A&E’s America’s Top Dog.
• Featured at Karen Pryor’s Clicker Expo 2019
• Obtained a second place in the Iron Dog Heavy Hitting contest
• Two certificates in dog training ABCDT and WODTDT
• Certified CPR/first aid for pets

“I love being able to be that bridge, bringing owners and their dogs together,” Prapavat said. “I’m passionate about working with people who are invested in the relationship they have with their four-legged best friend. When it comes to my approach to training, I believe in doing what’s best for the dog and the owner. I believe that every dog ​​is a special and unique being, which is why my dog ​​training philosophy is based on the ideal approach for the dog in front of me. If you are looking for suitable dog training to your lifestyle and delivering real results, my coaching will be perfect for you and your dog. Not only do I focus on the uniqueness of each dog, but I also recognize the individuality of each owner. Together we will create the ideal approach for you and your dog; we will work together to create the foundations that will enhance your relationship and emphasize teamwork.
