We can help you and your pet achieve good manners by helping with basic obedience and commands, crate training and housebreaking, digging, chewing, jumping, walking on the leash, and more. We can customize a program to meet the needs of you and your pet, just let us know what you would like to work on!

Every dog is different, and your dog will respond to Manners training in his or her own way. We recommend an initial group of three Manners training sessions. This enables us to set goals and get your dog on the path to better behavior. When the three sessions are complete, you and your trainer can assess progress and determine the best options for moving forward.

Single training sessions start at $179 per session.

  • 3-session Manners training package: $429 (Saves $108!)
  • 6-session Manners training package: $799 (Saves $275!)
  • 9-session Manners training package: $1099 (Saves $512!)
  • At-Home Introductory Trial: $99 (Click to Book Now!)

There's no way to tell exactly how many sessions your dog will need because every dog is an individual, and every home is different. However, our Manners trainers are very experienced and are typically able to understand your goals, assess your dog's potential and challenges, and provide a recommendation for how many Manners sessions will be needed. Schedule an At-Home Introductory Trial for your trainer to make a recommendation on how to meet your family's goals.

Yes! We train dogs of all sizes, personalities, breeds, and ages. Old dogs can most definitely learn new tricks!

With some patience and persistence with the proper technique, we are confident that you and your dog can achieve your goals. Our Canine Company dog trainers have experience training a variety of pets each with unique personalities and challenges. The most rewarding part of our job is seeing results; the positive impact that training can have on the relationship between you and your dog.

The full responsibility of dog training should still remain with the adults, but that’s no reason to leave your children completely out of the process. Your child doesn’t have to be involved in the complicated aspects of training to bond with your dog. We encourage the whole family to be on board with your dog’s training program. We have techniques that can get family members as young as 3 years old involved in the training process. We can help teach basic commands, help them to get involved in the everyday care of the dog, show various activities, and help with exercise routines.

Canine Company operates Monday-Saturday offering convenient early morning or early evening appointments to those with challenging day schedules. Schedule your At-Home Introductory Trial or contact us at 800-818-3647 to learn more about appointment availability.

Yes. We remind our customers that dogs bark to communicate, and they do this for many reasons: territoriality, fear, boredom, loneliness, playfulness, or just to say hello and seek attention. Working with you, we can determine why your dog is barking excessively, target the root causes of the behavior, and formulate the correct action steps to reduce barking.

For the safety of our trainers, we do not schedule At-Home session to dogs with a history of aggression. However, you can call us at 800-818-3647 to learn more about our training process so we can assess whether your dog is the right candidate. Should your dog be overly aggressive or have behaviors beyond our scope of training, we will be happy to make recommendations on other pet professionals.

Yes! Our trainers work with dogs of all shapes, sizes, behaviors, and backgrounds. Our Manners Training process will ensure that your dog’s new forever home is full of love and stress free.

Yes. This can involve a number of different factors including diet, schedule, exercise, and reinforcing good behavior. We will work with you to determine the best method for housebreaking, whether it's crate training, paper training, or making frequent trips outdoors. We also take into account the age of your dog, as adult dogs may require a different approach than a puppy. In any case, our goal is to establish a predictable pattern of circumstances and behaviors for you, your family and your dog that will ensure a happy pet, a cleaner home, and less work for you.
