Are You Struggling With

Basic Manners

Let’s turn unruliness into good doggy manners. We use reward-based methods to replace unwanted behavior with desirable behavior.

Fear/Reactivity

Ease your dog’s anxiety with practical training to overcome noise phobia, fear of strangers, fear on walks, and veterinary and grooming procedures. There is help for the fearful dog!

Leash Pulling

Teaching your dog to walk on a loose leash makes the walks pleasant for both species! And leash corrections are not necessary!

Kids and Dogs

Your whole family will learn the skills necessary to stop unruly behavior before it escalates.Young children and dogs are taught to interact safely.

At Play Train, it’s always possible to start training!

We understand that behavioral challenges can often cause frustration and concern.

Let’s work together to unleash your dog’s full potential and create a fulfilling partnership that lasts a lifetime.

Our Adult Dog Training Options

Our personalized in-home training service is designed specifically for adult dogs and conducted in the comfort of your home and on a schedule that works for you!

Problems that occur in the home, are dealt with where they happen. Your whole family will learn the skills necessary to stop unruly behavior before it escalates. Together, we’ll teach your dog the basics: to come, go to his place, greet guests at the door by sitting, and wait to leave the house. With customized sessions, we focus on teaching essential manners and promoting safe interactions between children and dogs.

Together, we'll work towards establishing a harmonious relationship built on trust and understanding, ensuring a happy, well-behaved companion for years to come.

Is your pup looking to be of service? Pet-assisted therapy involves a dog and handler team visiting nursing homes, hospitals, and various facilities to bring joy and comfort to patients.

However, not all dogs are suitable candidates for this critical work. That's where we come in. PlayTrain offers comprehensive evaluations to assess your dog's suitability for pet-assisted therapy.

If it seems your dog is a good fit, we’ll provide personalized training to prepare you and your dog to pass the Canine Good Citizen and Therapy Dog Test you choose.
