We recognize that every dog and owner is different.

Dreams Dogs offers positive reinforcement training and boarding services to clients throughout Southern California’s Coachella Valley. We’re skilled at training dogs, but we also understand that an important part of the mix is coaching you – as a canine “parent” – to succeed in creating a healthy, happy relationship with your four-legged companion. We work hard to make learning and behavior modification a fun, informative experience for you and your pet.

We recognize that every dog - and owner - is different. Some dogs require more time to learn, others catch on quickly, and many suffer from behavioral problems that can be an unending source of frustration. That's why we offer a wide range of Dream Dogs training packages, tailored to work with your schedule and your pup’s individual needs.

Choose from a variety of group classes, drop-in classesday training/boarding, and training options. You can even book a private session in the comfort of your own home! Dream Dogs offers a large selection of group classes for dogs of all ages and skill levels. In addition to standard obedience and agility, we include a variety of mini-clinics and specialty programs designed to keep your dogs (and you!) engaged and excited to learn. We also offer puppy-specific classes to give young dogs that extra support and socialization they need during their formative years. Come have some fun and learn how to create a great relationship with your dog using our positive training techniques. 

We Opened Our Doors Over 19 Years Ago...

Dream Dogs opened its doors in 1998 and was founded by long-time Indio resident Lori Carman, a California native with a background in animal training and wildlife education. In opening Dream Dogs, Lori created the best of both worlds by combining her extensive exotic animal background and operant conditioning knowledge with her love of dogs and people. The result? A professional program where dog owners and their canine companions come together for a variety of learning opportunities and support, all in an approachable and fun environment. Dream Dogs truly is a dream come true.

“Hi, my name is Mari. I have a lovely German Shepard named Winston. Winston is lovely only because of Dream Dogs. Winston was bored, destructive, unhappy and wouldn’t listen. Being almost 100 pounds at 18 months old, I needed to do something. I had no idea there were so many things I could do. Lori has a fabulous method of training that is easy, fun and exciting for both humans and dogs. Winston is so happy now and so am I. If I can do this, anyone can do it. Simple as that. The name says it all, Dream Dogs. Taking this class will turn your night mare into a dream come true.”
