Caryl Wolff

Puppy Expert

Caryl Wolff has been living in Los Angeles for a long, long time - and remembers when the smog was so thick that you couldn't see across the street. Her first career was as a court reporter, but her first job as a dog trainer was training one of her dogs for the Los Angeles Opera with Placido Domingo. She got tired of not being able to walk and talk (which was difficult as a court reporter) and decided to become a dog trainer since everyone was asking her how to train their dogs - she was fortunate to start at the top.

She was the first dog trainer/behavior consultant concurrently certified by 5 dog trainer organizations - The International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants, Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers, National Association of Dog Obedience Instructors, Association of Animal Behavior Professionals, and the American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen Evaluator. She is a professional member of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers and the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants.

She owns and operates the following websites:

Her writing career was born when she began writing articles for her website She has written several books on dog and puppy training including the first book about Puppy Socialization written by a certified dog consultant. She has a wicked sense of humor and lives in Los Angeles with 2 dogs and a 42-year-old macaw, which she humorously refers to as her longest relationship.
