Classes

 

At On Command Dog Training, we believe classes should be fun, effective and family friendly. Our dog training classes are designed to not only teach you how to train your dog, but how to communicate, and use that knowledge to have a polite, well-mannered dog. You will meet new people and you, and your dog, may even make new life-long friends!  For your comfort, our training facility is equipped with heat and air conditioning.

 

 

We would love the opportunity to work with you and your canine.  Feel free to call or email Becky to schedule an appointment or with any questions you may have at 757-846-4404.  Also be sure to visit our Frequently Asked Questions page!

 

 

Aggressive Behavior

For the safety of all owners and dogs in training, we will, under no circumstances, accept dogs with aggressive behaviors, towards dogs or humans, into a training class.  If you feel your dog is reactive, I will be happy to evaluate your dog one-on-one to see if they would be eligible for a class.  If we are unable to place your dog in a class, we are happy to help refer you to a trainer who specializes with aggression in dogs.
