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 expert dog trainers use positive reinforcement dog training techniques that are supported by decades of research to build respect and trust between you and your dog.
Timing and consistency are essential to successful puppy training. Petco's puppy training classes and packages introduce the basics and build on the commands you practice at home with your pup. The puppy training classes cover essential commands, loose-leash walking, problem-solving ideas for potty training puppy, chewing, digging and more. At our in-person group training sessions, our expert trainers also leave plenty of time for puppies to socialize and play with each other.
After completing the puppy training, classes, test your puppy's newly acquired skills with the AKC S.T.A.R. Puppy Test through AKC's Canine Good Citizen Evaluators at Petco.
Training your dog takes consistency and positive reinforcement. Through Petco's Adult Level dog training classes and packages, our expert trainers will reinforce positive behaviors while building upon basic cues. We cover, coming when called, sit, stay and politely walking on a leash, managing undesirable behaviors, preventing boredom with enrichment activities, meeting new people and adjusting to new environments.
