By now you already know your local Petco is a great place to get high-quality pet nutrition and supplies. But did you know we also offer convenient in-store pet services such as professional dog training classes and a full-service grooming salon? We love helping pet parents adjust to life with a new pet and offer the support system and services you'll need to make your first year (and beyond) the very best it can be.

The power of Positive Dog Training

Proper training is essential for fostering a long, happy and safe relationship with your dog. To make sure training is enjoyable and fulfilling, our expert trainers use a rewards-based approach that's fun and effective. Build a lifetime bond with your dog through Petco's fun and positive classes.

Professional Dog Trainers – Each of our trainers undergo an intensive 16-week training program that is updated yearly.

Many classes to choose from – We offer a range of group classes, workshops, seminars and private lessons to ensure you find the perfect fit for you and your dog. We even offer advanced options including the American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizen certification, which is nationally recognized as a high standard of dog behavior!

Puppy classes – By starting your dog's training as a puppy, you'll create healthy habits and good behaviors that will last a lifetime. Early learning is critical to the development and socialization of your new little pet.

Adult dog classes – You really can teach an old dog new tricks! Classes will help you communicate better with your older dog and keep them mentally simulated and active. These adult classes train them in more advanced skills such as how to handle distractions.. We also have classes to address lingering challenges such as jumping, barking and leash walking.
