What Clients Are Saying

Firstly Lou is awesome! Our dog Addie (German Shepherd) was really reactive and we couldn’t bring her anywhere in public. It was so embarrassing. After 4 weeks with Lou our dog is living with us at our apartment and is one of the best behaved dogs in the complex. All of our anxiety is gone and Addie is happy as ever!

Parker Feuge - Chula Vista CA

Lou helped us train our 65 pound pitbull husky shepherd mix rescue dog. Our dog was reactive and unpredictable with other dogs and humans when we went outside or had guests over. We completed private training with Lou and saw huge improvements with recall, focusing on us versus other dogs/distractions, and overall leash walking. He gave us the confidence as first time dog owners. Highly recommend Lou if you’re looking for professional dog training!

Lou Alicea

Hello everyone! I'm Lou, a Behavioral Specialist at Mango Dogs San Diego, serving our vibrant city and its surrounding areas. I own a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois named Stoney. She helps me with working out behavioral issues with all my clients and she will show you how awesome your dog(s) could be. 

Years ago I struggled with my dog Doja, she was reactive and aggressive towards both dogs and humans. I found it difficult to find a trainer that worked with cases like she had. Since then I devoted my entire career in helping struggling dog because I never had that support.

Behavioral issues, off leash reliability, reactivity, or addressing reactive and aggressive behaviors, I specialize in providing personalized solutions for leash and off-leash training dilemmas. With nearly a thousand dogs trained in the San Diego area, I'm here to support you by providing a real fix to your issues. If you're grappling with any dog-related issues, don't hesitate to reach out – I'm excited to help you trust your dog again.

Hi! My name is Sandra and I take care of all the behind the scenes work here at Mango Dogs Carolinas. I’m the first point of contact for when you reach out to us for help with your dog(s).

I’m a veteran of the veterinary industry but have also trained dogs myself. I’ve had the pleasure of mentoring under some of the most recognizable names in the industry and bring forth a wealth of hope and knowledge. 

Far too many people have sought out training for their dog only to still struggle. For many people, we are their last hope. It’s incredibly rewarding knowing that we not only train dogs, but we change lives.

The Mango Dogs Balanced Approach

As balanced trainers, we are able to take the great aspects from each style of training and utilize it where needed.

We use food, treats, praise, toys to encourage our dogs and our clients dogs to do the things that we want them to do. This type of motivation is particularly important when training fearful dogs and dogs with anxiety.

  • Positive methods are easy and fun for anyone to implement
  • Positive methods keep the dog being trained happy and engaged

Where things fall apart...

  • Positive based methods are un-reliable when the distraction is very high
  • Many of our clients do not want to have to carry around treats for the rest of their dogs life

Positive only training works well... until it doesn't

Our training works in the real world. At your front door. On your walks, at the park, anywhere!

Using Corrections And E-collars

But all is not lost. We can also use corrections to keep your dog accountable and make them more reliable. Corrective techniques are incredible when looking to STOP bad behaviors.

We are e-collar specialists, we can streamline the process for you and make sure that you are using the tool humanely.

We use food, toys praise wherever we can, and correction whenever we must.

E-collar training is an essential part of training hard to train dogs off leash, we routinely train beagles, huskies, even wolf hybrids off leash. It's versatile because it can be used to stop many bad behaviours, and can be used while on leash, off leash, in the house, in the yard, or at the park. 

The e-collars we use have 3 modes. Tone, Vibration, and Pulse Correction. The pulse correction feels like a Tens Unit that chiropractors and physiotherapy clinics use as a muscle stimulator. This pulse correction is adjustable from 1-100 levels which makes it a versatile tool that can be used on dogs of all sensitivity levels.

100% Satisfaction Guarantee

We are so confident that you will get great results that we provide one year of ongoing service as needed. If our clients require extra assistance we offer it at no additional cost. If you do the work, we will help you for as long as needed at no extra cost! ****Some exceptions apply, please ask your trainer for more details.  *****
