Personal Instruction Training

Creating a family-centered canine life

Dog Coach dog training is results-­driven, effective almost immediately, and gives you success that is easy to repeat with regular practice. All of our training programs are based on the principle that you can indeed learn the skills that anticipate and stop unwanted antics from your dog before they happen. The balanced methods we utilize have outstanding success in teaching families to encourage better behavior while setting reasonable and respectful boundaries.

At Dog Coach we are champions of the goals and expectations you have for improving life with your dog, especially in beginning new routines that support the changes you want to make.

Our personal instruction is a deep-dive into how you and your family interact with your dog, showing you techniques and strategies that make for a happy dog and a happier dog family. The training hours we spend with you in hands-on instruction and ongoing assessment will build up your confidence and relaxed control which is so essential for a healthy canine life.

Our dog training programs address most forms of challenging dog behavior, including but not limited to:

  • Basic obedience issues
  • Socialization
  • Dog­-to-Dog Aggression
  • Leash Reactivity
  • Food and Resource Guarding
  • Fear and Separation Anxiety

The Foundation Training Program at Dog Coach covers every basic obedience command and behavior for Sit, Place/Stay, Heel, Recall/Come, and Down, as well as crate training, food management, threshold etiquette, and a proper structured walk. Most other common behavior issues are handled in this training as well.  More about the Foundation Training Program >
