Dog training is a process of understanding the pups emotional state, body language and reinforcing appropriate behavior. In turn, the dog learns how to understand and communicate with you.

We understand dog training can be frustrating, that’s why we are here to help.

Board & Train

During Board & Train, your dog stays with us to receive engaging, positive reinforcement training! The program is catered to every concern you have with your dog. This ranges from the basics such as sit, stay, recall and leash walking in distracting environments to more serious behavioral concerns such as reactivity to other dogs or people, interdog aggression and resource guarding.

With In-Home Training we train you, and you train your dog! In-Home training gives you the skills to work with your dog daily and with weekly check-ins we will make sure that you are progressing quickly. Perfect for dogs who are reactive, aggressive or fearful.

Group Training

In Group Training you’ll learn with your dog in a social training environment. Structured group classes run 5-6 weeks and teach your puppy or adult dog everything from basic socializing skills to basic obedience training.

Teaching your dog to listen is simple!

Process Step 1

Process Step 2

Choose the Right Package

From the completely hands off board & train package to you teaching your dog in group classes, we offer every level of involvement to fit your lifestyle.

Process Step 3

Love Life with Your Dog

After training with us, you will have better lines of communication with your dog and be comfortable integrating them into your everyday life.

It’s time to stop trying training that doesn’t work.

Aversive training with shock collars, pinch collars, sprays and punishment can traumatize your pet and will cause more harm than help. You need to clearly communicate and motivate your dog — not punish them when they just don’t understand what you are asking them to do.

Happy Pet Parent Stories

We love reinventing how our clients live their lives with their pups!

“We had a great experience with Reale Dog Training and I would highly recommend them to anyone. We first met Phil when he came to our house for in-home training sessions. He took the time to explain his training methods, worked patiently with us and our puppy to teach us, and included my kids in the training process too. We then attended puppy kindergarten classes and did a week-long board and train program. The staff was very helpful, flexible and accessible during the time our dog was staying with them. They responded to calls and texts with updates and pictures to let us know how he was doing.

Phil and all the staff were professional, knowledgeable, friendly, patient, and took the time to get to know us and our dog to best work through the issues we were dealing with. We would highly recommend it!”
