Dog Training Services

Are you struggling with a dog or puppy that has bad habits? Bad behavior runs the gamut from being annoying to downright dangerous. Does any of this sound familiar?

  • Won’t come when called
  • Doesn’t listen
  • Jumps on people
  • Play bites
  • Aggressive
  • Barks too much
  • Destructive in the home
  • Bothers you when you eat
  • Pulls on leash
  • Not house trained

Ingleside Animal Hospital knows a well-behaved dog makes for a better member of the family. For that reason, we partnered with a certified dog trainer who provides both classes at the hospital and in-home training.

Types of Training Available

  • At-hospital group classes—Limited to a small size, so that each participant receives the necessary training. Emphasis is on basic obedience.
  • Private in-home trainings—Focuses on specific behaviors in the home.
  • Puppyhood 101—Starting as soon as seven weeks, learn the best way to house and leash train and more.
