who is The DOG

about us

is the right place for you to come to if you want your puppy to learn some good old dog manners and social etiquette. We believe in reward-based training and rely on the scientifically-proven, positive reinforcement method that is known to work magic on dogs of all types. We help dog owners understand their pets better and address problematic behavior such as continuous barking, biting, disobedience, destroying stuff, chasing cats, and any kind of aggression in general.

what is positive reinforcement?

Positive reinforcement is nothing but getting your dog to do what you want by rewarding. It’s more than just bribing your dog with food. A reward can mean anything like a game of fetch or pampering your dog with a toy or a petting session filled with kind and loving words. It all depends on what your dog likes.

At The DOG, we implement multiple strategies to get to know what your pet desires and design our teaching techniques accordingly. We build a positive connection with the animals and that paves the way to effective training.

what we believe

No dog is too old to be trained. We believe with the right kind of environment and a friendly instructor, any dog can learn a few new tricks that will make life easier for you as a pet-owner.
