Dog Training Oakland

Welcoming home a dog is an exciting time filled with new challenges. At your Petco, we’re with you every step of the way as you bond with your dog and learn to speak their language. Our positive dog training classes encourage good behavior through fun, informative group lessons led by expert dog trainers. We offer a secure environment where pups can learn the skills they need for real-world situations.

What Is Positive Dog Training?

Positive dog training focuses on rewarding good behavior instead of punishing naughty behavior. Just like humans, dogs repeat behaviors that they are rewarded for. Our trainers use positive reinforcement techniques that are supported by decades of research to build respect and trust between you and your dog.

Puppy Training

Timing and consistency are essential to successful puppy training. Our individual classes and packages introduce the basics and build on the commands you to practice at home with your pup. We cover essential commands, loose-leash walking, problem-solving ideas for potty training, chewing, digging and more, all while leaving plenty of time for puppies to socialize and play with each other.
