Strengthen your bond with your dog through a variety of training programs for all skill levels.
Dog Training at On Command
Man and dog have been friends and companions forever. The behavior of your dog is the most important factor in determining how much you will enjoy your pet. Dogs, descending from pack animals, learn first from their mother, then their litter-mates and finally their behavior is established by their interactions with the adult members of the pack (you!). Our training and behavior modification techniques using this natural method of communication will strengthen the bond between you and your dog, enhancing a lasting and loving relationship. Dogs respond to a kind yet firm approach, therefore our training is accomplished through voice and praise, along with proper firm corrections. We are proud of the successes of our students and invite you to observe our training classes at anytime.
It is no secret that dogs provide a level of unconditional love that cannot be measured and strive for 100% of our attention as owners. We do our best to raise our dogs like our own children and as true members of our family. But there is a lot that goes into puppy raising and things can be tough. Even more confusing can be the range of advice one would find when researching the topics of house-training, grooming care, methods of dog training, and so on. Often times dogs will develop bad habits like jumping, digging, barking, etc., all of which can be addressed through a proper training program. Through experience, implementing a set of rules and boundaries for your dog can help in many ways. Not only is your dog happier with this direction, but they learn how to please you and earn the praise they love so much. In return, your dog gets to go more places and do more things because they’re no longer a hassle or embarrassing in public. If you are experiencing some of these issues, please ask us how our training programs can help you.

I am a certified dog trainer through National K-9 School for Dog Trainers. I successfully completed the six week Master Trainer Course which includes puppy development, basic and advanced obedience, and behavior modification. I have also done some utility and K-9 Police functional training. I’ve grown up around dog training and have always enjoyed teaching and working with my own dogs from a young age. I began training for On Command in 2011 and since have enjoyed teaching owners how to effectively communicate with their dogs through the training process. I’ve found that even the simplest training programs can enhance the relationship shared between families and their dogs. I’ve worked with dogs of all ages and breeds and believe that any dog is capable of success with the right direction and persistence from their humans. I currently teach private lessons and group classes, as well as residency-bootcamp style training at On Command.
