About Incredible Canine Training Center

Incredible Canine Training Center is a dog training facility in Santa Rosa CA. We are located on quiet country acreage in Sonoma County, one hour north of San Francisco.


Our trainer, Patrick O’Connor, has been training dogs for over 45 years and specializes in all-breed problem solving for severe behavioral issues especially those associated with social dynamics such as fear and aggression.


Patrick uses the natural approach to training. He believes that a healthy relationship in the world of man and dog is based on cooperation and rank (dominance/subordination), as well as the drives for social bonding (pack drive) and physical interaction (play drive). This produces a dog that works for you because you are the leader and what the dog wants is your approval, affection and guidance, not a cookie.
