Dog Obedience Training

Dog Obedience Training for Happier, Healthier Canines

Owners who invest in dog obedience training have stronger bonds with their dogs. Why?

Having a well-trained, conflict free dog leads to a deep, trusting relationship between dog and owner. A well trained dog opens more opportunities to include your dog in your life.  

I am a certified dog obedience trainer, with 20+ years of experience. 

I educate owners to communicate with their dogs so they can enjoy a relationship with their canine companions as friends and family members.

Effective, Expert Dog Obedience Training

At John P. Jones Canine Training, we will train all dogs.

We strive to train for the spirit of the dog, whether that means maintaining a dog’s high-spirits or rehabilitating a dog in need of help.

Our dog obedience training is based on the dog. No one method works for all dogs.

Also, we do not push dogs and/or owners through obedience training. If the best thing for the dog is to take extra time between classes, then we will do what is best for the dog.

Our Canine Training Process

All obedience training begins with a series of private lessons, whether that is at your house or at a park. We start training in a more controlled environment and add distractions as you progress through the program. Along with teaching control through obedience exercises, we will address your specific goals and areas of concern that have led you to our door, i.e. aggression, walking down the street, destructive behavior, jumping up, etc. 

Once through your private lessons, you will then move to group class with other dogs in which you learn to train in a more challenging environment. This is where you and your dog learn to apply training for real life situations. 

We enjoy training people to help their dogs reach their full potential in the family and the community.
We also understand that some people would like to do more with their dogs. We offer AKC training and titles in:

  • Canine Good Citizen
  • Community Dog
  • Urban Dog
  • Obedience

Many people enjoy training with us because of the safe, fun environment we provide for every dog. In fact, many of our clients come to classes regularly to train their dogs for years at a time, working through the offered programs.

It is our job as dog obedience trainers to see that you succeed and have fun with your dog. We want you to be happy with your dog and we want your dog to be happy through training.

We will help you meet your goals with your Best Friend throughout its lifetime.
