Dog Training

A well behaved dog is a pleasure to own and be around. However dogs don't come with instruction manuals. Sometime you need a little help making your pet a family member you can be proud of.

Kindred Companions® specializes in training that will get you the results you are looking for. No more being dragged down the street with a dislocated shoulder just to take your dog for a walk. No longer will your dog run off at every opportunity. Now there is an end to all the behaviors your dog does that drive you crazy, like jumping up and going to the bathroom in the house.

We don't just provide training... We provide solutions!

We use only humane, scientifically backed training methods, while keeping with your expectations and your pet's temperament and emotional well being. Our methods get the same if not better results and leave you with the peace of mind that you're getting individual attention you and your dog deserve.

Is your dog "impossible"? Untrainable? Is your dog aloof, independent, free thinking, non-listening, or hyperactive, with no interest in pleasing you? Have you tried everything but nothing has ever worked? Before giving up, give us a call. Difficult dogs are our specialty!

Contact us today to schedule a consultation.

After contacting us, we will visit with you for a 90 minute consultation. During this session we will observe the problems you're having. After this interview and observation period, we immediately spend the rest of the session on training and management, with the goal of leaving you in a position where you understand your dog, their needs, and have a plan to reach your training goals. At the end of the consultation session, we will advise you on if more training sessions are recommended.

Following your Consultation, Dog Training is available in 5 ways:

TRAINING PROGRAMS:

We now offer training sessions at Stockton Veterinary Hospital. Sessions usually last 45 minutes to an hour and sessions are scheduled for multiple sessions a week, once a week, or bi-weekly. Great for people who want to train their dog, but need instruction and support. Perfect for skills that need distractions.

Many dogs and owners are ready to learn in a more natural real life classroom setting to master skills. Our classes are an immersive experience mixing both obedience skills and real life application simultaneous so that you get the results you are looking for surrounded by real life situations.

Remote Dog Training:

Our reputation precedes us and we get requests for training assistance from all over the world. To facilitate this we offer video chat consultations.
