Dog Obedience Training

Help your pet be the best he can be with Positive Dog Training Classes, provided by Linda Laun’s Dog Training! A well-behaved pet is the goal of obedience training. You’ll learn how to socialize your pet and how to prevent unwanted behaviors. Plus, your dog will learn the basic doggy manners that make living with your pet a joy.

Strengthen your bond with your dog while helping them develop basic doggy manners, socialization skills, and how to prevent unwanted behavior.

Class Information

Each session runs for 6-weeks with one class of approximately one-hour duration per week at all Chow Hound Pet Supplies locations. Some classes may be combined at nearby locations to meet minimum enrollment requirements. Call your local Chow Hound or see below for a complete schedule of times and locations. The entire family is invited to join the class. Children under 8 need to remain with the class and be supervised by an adult who is not training the dog.

Positive dog training classes are provided in partnership with Linda Laun Dog Training, a Positive Obedience Training company with 25 years experience helping pet families develop healthy, happy relationships. All trainers have been certified by an industry-recognized certification program and/or have completed an apprentice training program under the supervision of a certified trainer.
