Dog & Puppy Obedience Training

Learn the secrets to training your dog in an amazingly fast, easy and effective way. Our training methods will be enjoyable for both you and your dog. Anytime your dog enjoys something, he or she will be motivated to repeat that behavior he or she was rewarded for, as a result, your dog will gladly and easily comply with the desired behaviors you want. We will teach you both verbal and hand signals so you can successfully communicate with your dog. We also offer training for dogs with disabilities, such as deaf, blind or use a dog wheelchair.



Private In-Home Training Programs

Loyal Companions schedules private training lessons in the comfort of your home and at your convenience. Private lessons allow you to receive individual attention. Another benefit is that we can focus on the problem behaviors where they occur, in your dog's own environment. In-home lessons are great for dogs of any age, including puppies. We schedule lessons on the weekdays, evenings and Saturdays.

We offer a variety of dog and puppy training programs, described below, that are customized to your individual needs.


Solving Specific Behaviors

This first dog training program is ideal for dogs that already know some basic obedience commands and manners, but have a couple of behavior problems that need to be solved. Some examples are training your dog to walk nicely on a loose leash, greeting people without jumping on them, eliminating counter surfing and more. The initial in-home consultation and training lesson is 2 hours long. The second and third lessons are 1 - 1.5 hours long and usually scheduled a week apart.

Living Peacefully With Your Dog

This is one of our most popular dog training programs. It is a great in-home training program for teaching your dog basic manners, obedience commands and behavior modification. We will work one-on-one with you and your dog so you can reach your dog training goals.

Here are some of the benefits:

  • Your dog will learn important obedience commands and behaviors that you specifically need. For example, walking nicely on a loose leash, stopping excessive barking, listening and coming the first time you call your dog, greeting people politely without jumping on them, "drop it", "leave it", "heel" (walking next to you), "go to your place", eliminating counter surfing, laying down and settling, sitting and staying instead of bolting through an opened door, resolving fear and anxiety issues, plus much more. The lessons are customized to your individual needs.

  • We will first meet for an initial in-home consultation, behavioral evaluation, discuss your training goals and demonstrate our training method with your own dog, so you can see how fast, easy and dog-friendly it is. After that we will spend the remaining time dedicated to your first training lesson. The initial consultation and training lesson is 2 hours long.

  • During the consultation and behavioral evaluation, we will develop a training plan that is specifically designed for your personal dog training needs.

  • The subsequent in-home lessons are 1 - 1.5 hours long and are usually scheduled once a week.

  • You also receive unlimited e-mail, text and/or telephone support on any previous training at no additional charge.

  • This program is typically accomplished in 5 lessons or less, but we will come to your home for a couple more lessons, if needed, until your training goals are reached.

Here are some of the benefits:

  • We will teach you basic care and essential information for raising a puppy, which will ensure that your puppy will grow up obedient, happy and confident. Your puppy will learn important obedience commands and behaviors that you specifically need. For example, crate training, potty training, stopping puppy biting and nipping, sitting instead of jumping on people, coming when called, only chewing on appropriate chew toys, learning proper leash manners, early socialization techniques, ringing a bell when needing to go potty, "drop it", "leave it", plus much more.
