Rebecca Hoffman

CPDT-KA trainer, serving the California Bay Area.

Rebecca has been involved in the dog world of the San Francisco Bay Area for nearly a decade. Her first dog was a Rat Terrier cross, named Oreo, that she raised from puppyhood to 14 years, starting when she was 15 years old. She demonstrated early on in her career a specialty for canine body language through her hearing disability. While many would consider a hearing impairment to be a set back to overcome, it proved to be a huge asset for Rebecca, in helping manage doggie playgroups and while working with otherwise difficult dogs. The absence of sound allowed for full concentration on the subtleties in each dog’s personal conversation styles.

This skill forged a new bond and style of relationship with her dog Oreo. A relationship that brought her to where she is today. Rebecca has spent the last several years building her skill set, expanding her knowledge, and working with a variety of dogs. She has worked hard to be a part of the entire canine world from working dogs, to dog sports, and pet ownership. Each dog is different and has their own needs, but so does every human! Rebecca’s goal continues to be to find the best avenues for human and canine relationships and to bring out the best in each other!

The Assistants


Archer is 55 lbs of pure love and muscles, who secretly wishes he was 200lbs. He’s a hard worker, trials in Barn Hunt and Flyball, and loves dog sports and showing off his moves. There’s not a single person he wouldn’t love to smooch. Yep, he is the makeout king!


Cooper, the softie of the bunch, has a knack for getting the shyest of dogs to come out of their shells. He once played sports too, but that fast lane life isn’t his deal. He prefers chilling out, all too ready to curl up by a fire with a hot mug of earl grey, and with a good book too.


The new kid in town. Spot Me a Pint- FIver, the borderjack. This shining star is quickly excelling at Flyball, Barn Hunt, Herding, Tricks, Dock Diving, and more. Can’t wait to see what more this hunk has to show us!
