Best Friends Dog Academy offers one-on-one private training (both in-person and virtual), behavior consultations, and educational events.
Coaching sessions are held virtually via Zoom or at your home. We teach you to train your dog. Working together, we discuss canine body language, how dogs learn, and positive reinforcement techniques while making it fun for everyone to set goals and reach them.
Behavior consultations are held at your home or via Zoom. These sessions address more serious behavior concerns such as severe fear or anxiety, human directed aggression, humane euthanasia counseling, and other challenges that demand more time and careful consideration of all options.
Positive reinforcement and humane training techniques are used as we work with you and your dog(s). We start with meeting the dog where he is and making forward progress from there.
Offering virtual and in-person private training and behavior consulting, we work with you to help you learn how to teach your dog what you want from him. By improving your understanding of and how to more effectively communicate with your dog(s), we work together to help them become well behaved at home, as well as when out and about in our community.
