Teach your dog to focus on you and respond attentively to your requests! We offer exceptional in-home obedience training.
We customize our programs for your dog’s specific needs. You and your trainer will discuss priorities and training goals during your dog’s first session. Lessons are 50-60 minutes each, in your home and neighborhood, to achieve results in real-world settings. We offer two levels of training: the first to teach a solid foundation, and the second to ensure distraction-proof reliability.
(Aggression, reactivity, and emotional issues are addressed in our behavior programs.)
We start teaching obedience skills with a positive approach, using food, praise and toys to motivate your dog to learn. Then, we practice those skills in new settings so your dog learns they mean the same thing everywhere. Finally, we supplement with traditional training, so your dog understands the importance of responding to cues the first time. As a result, your dog will have more focus on you and know how to respond to both verbal cues and hand signals.

We teach dogs to come when called, off leash and untethered! Pavlov’s off leash program is a hybrid of traditional and motivational training. Read about our dog training approach here. Training begins in safely enclosed outside spaces, and progresses to off leash areas.
Prerequisites for the Off Leash Come Program:
Pavlov uses “low-level stimulation” e-collar training to teach your dog how to respond to subtle sensations. This will allow you to communicate with your dog remotely, even if he’s chasing a squirrel towards a busy street. This is not shock training of yesteryear, which used e-collars solely to give high level corrections. If you have yet to learn this modern, humane way of using an e-collar, we look forward to showing you how it can be done while leaving your dog joyful and SAFE off leash.

“I raised, trained and competed with dogs for more than 20 years. I have put multiple obedience and agility titles on my dogs. When I got Lola, I was at a loss. She was so shy and fearful. Pavlov saved us!” -Joe Burris
“Our trainer listened to our concerns and desires prior to formulating a plan to help us achieve our goals. Once our priorities were established, our trainer behavior tested our Australian cattle dog and tailored his training to accomplish solid results. I highly recommend Pavlov Dog Training!” -Bridget Schroder
