As far as we can tell, dogs and people speak different languages, our training programs teach Pet Parents the knowledge and skills to effectively communicate with their pets — managing issues such as pets jumping, barking uncontrollably, pulling on the leash, getting on furniture, or not obeying obedience commands.

Our professional trainers — you can choose one in each of our locations— have trained thousands of dogs over the years, so you can be assured that they have the experience and skill your dog training situation requires. Take advantage of a FREE evaluation with a trainer to assess not only your dog’s training aptitude, but also your training goals for your dog.

Training Options

Puppy Training

We understand that getting your puppy started on the right paw from the beginning will shape desired behavior and prevent unwanted behavior for the life of your dog.  Your puppy’s training can be customized to fit your needs. With Kennelwood’s puppy training you and your puppy will learn such things as: socialization, basic obedience, grooming manners, potty training, and breaking puppy habits like mouthing, jumping, and chewing. Our trainers will also teach pet parents how to effectively become your dog’s leader.

Day Training 

Our Day Training program is a very convenient solution for owners who want their pet trained. The pet is dropped off each morning, our trainer works with the pet during the day and then the owner picks up their pet in the evening. Throughout the Day Training process, you will meet one-on-one with your pet’s in-store trainer during intervals scheduled at your convenience to review accomplishments and discuss exercises you and your pet can work on at home.
