Dog Coach Reviews
“Dog Coach helped me train my 1 year old lab, Charlie. He is playful and full of energy and I needed to set some boundaries. After two classes of positive, treat-based training elsewhere, I started the remote collar program. Dog Coach was a true partner in training and I felt supported the entire time. They called to check in weekly and answered all of my questions during training sessions and over text or phone. The remote collar is such a fabulous tool for improving communication with your dog; I feel so lucky that I had Dog Coach to teach me how to use it! I know I’ll be in touch with them for a long, long time and I’ll send all of my friends to her as well!”

A Dog Training Tip: Teach Your Dog to Coexist with Other Dogs
Helping your dog feel more comfortable means managing him around other dogs in a group setting. Dogs don’t always coexist right off the bat and as owners, we must step in and correct poor behavior choices to advocate for our dog. Our programs help you to manage your dog in your home, at a gathering, or in public, whenever other dogs are around. Remember: poor behavior leads to more poor behavior.
