The pet parent's role in dog training is an important aspect driving the overall success of your dog's training. Prior to the trainer's arrival, please have high-value treats cut up into small pieces, have your dog on a leash as your trainer enters your home and answer any questions they have. Continuing your training with your dog after your trainer is gone will create consistency and help your dog continue to learn the rules and behaviors that are important for their growth.

All Petco-certified dog trainers will communicate with the pet parent from inquiry to final session and will work to address your training needs and goals.

No, only one dog can be trained at a time.

No. We do not have cat experience to best facilitate that form of training. We will refer you to someone who can.
