Welcome to Lucky Pup

Welcome to Lucky Pup

“ I teach your animal to think, rather than just obey. At the end of my program your best pal will have a solid understanding of the basic commands, but the best part is that they will be compelled to please you. Following my simple technique and method, together we will create the bond between dog and handler, creating a bright, spirited eager to please companion that wants to be a team player. “ ~ Marcus Vitale ~

About Us

Based in Rancho Santa Fe, California, Lucky Pup has become one of the most highly sought after training facilities in the U.S.

Started by Marcus Vitale, he has spent more than 14 years training dogs of all breeds. He has pioneered innovative dog training solutions for both the field and home that maintain a dog’s spirit and energy while creating strict obedience and eliminating unwanted habits.

LuckyPup has extensive facilities in two locations within Rancho Santa Fe, CA – only 25 minutes from San Diego and 1 hour south of Orange County. Our top of the line facilities are maintained for optimal safety, comfort and care of all dogs.

LuckyPup can board your dogs for a day, a week, or longer, or in combination with obedience or field training.

Training can also be done on a ” one on one ” basis with you and your dog, either in home, on-site, public places like dog beach or cafes. Of course appointments can always be arranged for field outings with exceptional access to properties with both field and lakes for optimal training and conditioning.
