  • Relationship-Based Training is Key

    At A Better Dog Trainer we work at a higher level of obedience training than a lot of the “treat training” programs out there today.

    Obviously raising a child is a lot more complicated and important than training your dog, but we do like to draw an analogy between being a good dog owner and a good parent. You don't want to scream and yell at your children but conversely, you aren’t giving them $5 every time you want them to do something. That's why our program is based on your dog’s innate nature to seek leadership and follow rules, building a respectful, loving relationship between all members of your family and your dog. 

    If you follow our program we GUARANTEE RESULTS. We work with you one on one, in the privacy of your own home. All lessons are based on your schedule, not ours.

    We work with all dogs, all ages, all problems. We have proven solutions for the worst problems like aggression, barking, digging, separation anxiety and more.
