Dog Training

Dogtown Obedience Training Approach

Welcome to our Premier Dog Training Program, where your furry friend embarks on a transformative journey of learning and growth. Our program is designed for busy pet parents who want the best for their dogs but may not have the time or expertise to provide the necessary training themselves. Here’s what you can expect:

Behavioral Assessment: At the start of the program, we conduct a thorough behavioral assessment to identify any specific challenges or areas of focus. This helps us create a targeted training plan for optimal results.

Comprehensive Training: Our expert trainers use positive reinforcement techniques to teach your dog essential commands, manners, and social skills. From basic obedience to advanced training, we tailor our approach to meet your dog’s specific needs.

Personalized Attention: We maintain a low trainer-to-dog ratio to ensure each dog receives the individual attention they deserve. Our trainers get to know your dog’s personality, strengths, and areas for improvement, creating a customized training plan.

Program Options:

  • Basic Obedience: Perfect for puppies and young dogs, this program covers essential commands such as sit, stay, come, and leash manners.
  • Advanced Training: For dogs that have mastered the basics, we offer advanced training in areas like off-leash reliability, agility, and specialized commands.
  • Behavior Modification: Designed for dogs with specific behavioral issues, this program addresses problems such as separation anxiety, aggression, and excessive barking.

What They’re Saying

Downtown’s "In House" Training was like a miracle for my 2 - 11 month old labs. The two trainers, Makenzie and Maren were so wonderful! During Chawk and Rio's training for 2 weeks they learned so many "GOOD DOG" manners that our home is normal again. When I dropped the 2 puppies off I didn't think I was going to be a basket case, I thought it would be just fine, but by that night I was clearly more attached than I thought. So the next day I called Makenzie and told her I was going to forfeit my money and I was coming to get my puppies and just forget the whole training thing...but after her talking to me for 20 minutes and her reassuring me that this was going to be a "GREAT" experience for both me and the puppies I agreed to leave them there and she would send me text messages throughout each day for the next 2 weeks to let me know they were okay, so we went forward with the training and I am so thankful that I did. Because of Makenzie and Maren, I have 2 trained lab puppies that are brothers, who used to be non separable, wouldn't sleep in separate kennels, who had to do everything together but will now do things without the other, and will even do commands the first time. (with a little help of a treat...lol) I would recommend DogTown Pet Spa Training (Sandy location) to anyone who is like me and wouldn't trust their fur babies to just anyone. Thank you, again for everything. Shauna, Chawk and Rio
