Model Canine Citizen Dog Training in Colorado Springs, Colorado

Do you wish your dog would listen, even when you have people over and even when you go out to the park? And even when you don’t have a treat?

What about even when there are a ton of interesting things going on, capturing your dog’s attention?

It is challenging to do simple things, like take a walk down the street or through a park or sit outdoors at a restaurant in public, when your dog is not properly trained in obedience.

Having an obedient dog seems hard to imagine when your dog or puppy is barking, biting, misbehaving, or just not listening. Model Citizen Canine, Colorado Springs dog training, is here to help your dog learn obedience, and strengthen the bond between owner and canine. 

Together in the Colorado Springs, Colorado area,  we’ll make sure your dog walks next to you so you have fun, peaceful walks, listens around the house – even when they have no leash on – and out in public, as well.

You will finally be able to truly enjoy having a dog!

Our programs for dog training in Colorado Springs are perfect for busy families, whether you have a few minor behaviors you’d like help with or your dog has more severe things going on.

Give us a call anytime and let us know what’s happening right now and what you wish would be happening instead. (931) 346 3191
