Whether you have a newly adopted dog who needs to learn to sit and lie down on cue, or a pet who behaves in a fearful or aggressive manner, The Sophisticated Dog is here to help. The Sophisticated Dog creates personalized training programs for everything from basic manners to issues such as reactivity, fear, aggression, separation anxiety, and more. We use pet-friendly, positive reinforcement methods -- methods that are based on proven scientific principles -- to achieve lasting results.
The Sophisticated Dog offers two types of training programs: Coaching and Day Training. Coaching is a more traditional program where we teach you to train
your pets, and you do most of the training. Coaching is great for people who want to learn new skills and spend time working with their pets. Day training is a program in which our trainer comes to your home and trains your pet directly several times a week, and then teaches you in a once-a-week Owner Transfer Session how to maintain your pet's new skills. Day training is ideal for people who want a better-behaved pet but don't have a lot of free time.
All animals can benefit from training. Although our name is "The Sophisticated Dog," we also train other pets, such as cats, rabbits, and birds. If you aren't sure if your pet is up for training, please contact us.
