What Our Customers Have to Say About Us

“We were in a tough spot. Our Boston Terrier bit a neighbor’s hand while on a walk. Additionally, we were taking care of our one-week-old daughter. We didn’t know if we could keep him but decided to try Dog Coach. They were outstanding. He now walks properly on a leash and is much calmer around people. Crate training allowed us to have people over again. The training sessions were straightforward, consistent, and easy to learn. Can’t say enough good things about Dog Coach.”

Dog Training Tip: Schedule Your Dog’s Mealtime

Buffets don’t help any dogs. And free feeding your dog can actually reinforce poor behavior. Our dog training programs work on managing mealtime behavior, which includes feeding your dog at a set time. Food is a powerful tool to train a respectful dog and waiting patiently for the food bowl is a key lesson dogs can learn quickly. Setting expectations around routines for your dog encompasses all aspects of household management, including mealtime. Dog Coach has a comprehensive approach to working with you to build a better relationship with your dog.

Imagine the vision: the dog of your dreams! Creating total confidence, reflected in your happiness and the fun-filled life of your dog.
