Welcome to Pavlov Dog Training! We train Portland’s most charming family dogs.

(Book now and enjoy a $300-$450 discount.)  Select from private dog training, or board and train.  Are you looking to upgrade your dog’s manners or resolve a behavior issue?  We can help!

Private training consists of weekly visits from a certified trainer. Your trainer will assess your dog’s specific learning style, and compose a training program based on your needs.  At the end of each training session, you will receive clearly defined homework.

Board and train may be ideal if you prefer to contract out the lion’s share of work to a professional. Your dog will live in his or her dog trainer’s home and learn throughout the day.  Campers benefit from three daily socialization sessions with fellow dogs.  Field trips are included.

PAVLOV’s Training Approach

Pavlov advocates for a healthy hybrid of traditional and contemporary training.  Some call this balanced dog training.  Rude, naughty behavior is directly corrected.  Polite behavior is liberally rewarded. Your dog will learn that wise choices are advantageous.


How Are We Different?

  1. Board + Train in your trainer’s cozy home
  2. Socialization groups 3x daily
  3. Traditional + Contemporary Dog Training
  4. Boarding options after training

Bailey, Bailey! We have been buddies since you were six months old. Now it’s time for you to move to the other side of the country. I’m grateful for all of our adventures together, swimming, hiking, keeping everyone laughing, splashing around in water bowls like a Labrador and especially, the cuddles. You will be missed around here. -your pal trainer Meredith

Training your dog everyday not only strengthens your bond, but also promotes mental stimulation, prevents behavioral issues, and builds confidence (in humans and dogs.) 😄 Training equates to so much more than just teaching tricks!

Introducing the fascinating Lagotto Romagnolo. 🐾 This Italian breed was bred to hunt truffles, with an incredible ability to sniff out these prized fungi. Their curly, hypoallergenic coats come in various colors, making them perfect for allergy sufferers. But these dogs are more than just truffle hunters! They’re also loyal, intelligent, and make excellent family pets. Their friendly nature and high energy levels make them perfect for outdoor activities. Pictured: Dottie & Chai at PAVLOV. 🐶
