Seven dogs in down/stay off leash outside

Imagine your dog being calm, peaceful, happy, friendly and obedient - without treats or shock collars. Imagine your dog walking peacefully next to or behind you as you walk down a crowded street with people, traffic, and even other dogs and animals passing by. No lunging, pulling or troublemaking. Imagine your dog lying peacefully by your side as you enjoy a meal at an outdoor cafe while strangers pass all around.

At Best Buddy Dog Training, we can make that - and much more - a reality for you. We work with you so that you have the dog of your dreams - guaranteed.


Genuine Obedience

Genuine obedience training is more than just a series of tricks; it's a way of life. You should be able to hang out with your dog without the dog getting into trouble or being annoying. For that to happen, you need to develop a trusting, respectful relationship with your dog. We can show you how.

We'll show you how to train your dog and communicate with your dog in a way that you both can understand. This two-way communication creates a genuine, loving bond that makes dog training easy and fast. Your dog will finally trust you. Your dog will happily obey you. On or off leash.

Competence

The hard truth is that many (if not most) 'professional dog trainers' don't know much more about training dogs than you do … otherwise they would be proudly showing you the results of their work. Testimonials are great, and pictures of playing puppies are cute. But they don't prove competence. Results do.

Proven Results

Often, lack of competence and proven results is obscured in discussion about methods and the 'latest science.' You'll hear phrases like "purely positive", and "rewards based" and even "force free". Don't be misled. If the trainer is competent, he or she will be happy to prove it by showing you photos, videos and dogs they've trained - in real world situations and environments. A well trained dog doesn't need treats or shock collars to gain his attention and cooperation. In fact, he won't even need a leash.

The best result is a dog that is obedient, calm, trusting, and happy. The best method is one that results in an obedient, calm, trusting, and happy dog. Just look at the calm, happy, obedient dogs in our photos and dog training videos. See the results for yourself. Call us and begin the awesome journey to a genuinely loving and respectful relationship with your best buddy.


The Guarantee

There are lots of dog trainers. They all have their own way of training, and their own style. The things you learn from Shawn and Best Buddy Dog Training may be quite different from what you have heard from other trainers or dog owners. My training results speak for themselves. As long as you are willing to follow my instructions and commit to working with your dog until the issues are resolved, I will continue to work with you. For as long as you own your dog.
