What An Obedient Dog!

Creating a Bond Between People and Pets

Welcome to What An Obedient Dog!

What An Obedient Dog! uses positive dog training techniques, reward-based force-free training methods! With positive puppy and adult dog training, you are encouraging your dog to do what you are asking by rewarding him with something he likes (a treat or game). In other words, he works for food, or a reward, just as we would go to work and earn our paycheck for our hard work. Once your dog learns the behavior you are asking, you can randomly use treats.



The Puppy/Beginner obedience classes include teaching the basics commands, such as sit, down, come, release, stay, leave it, take it, drop it, watch me, leash walking, and discussions on behavior problems including, barking, nipping, biting, chewing, digging, jumping, etc. The cost is $169 for the 6 week program.

The Middle School classes (level II) which is the next level after our Puppy/ Beginner classes where we will add distance, duration and distractions to the basics, which will help your dog focus on you despite what is going on around them. We will also learn heel by my side, park it which is "go lie down on your mat until I release you" and more. The cost is $169 for the 6 week program.

The AKC Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Preparation with Exam class is where your dog is almost guaranteed to pass and receive his canine good citizen certification - that is as long as you do your homework! We also administer the CGC Exam, so your dog can become an AKC Canine Good Citizen and ready for service dog work or therapy dog work, or if you just want him to be your calm companion. The cost is $179 for the 7 week program (includes the test).


Let us do all the hard work for you! We will teach your dog "all the basics" at our facility in Carrollton with either our 3 week (for dogs with mild issues) or the 4 week (for puppy issues, pulling on leash) dog boarding & training program! You will bring home a calm, obedient dog after the program is complete! When you pick up your dog, please plan to stay about an hour for your follow-up training session where we will coach you on everything we taught him. Also included is a 2nd follow-up session. All dogs must be 4 months or older with updated shot records, including their rabies shot to be eligible for the program. The cost for the 3-week board & training program is $2,520. The cost for the 4-week board & training program is $3,220.




If you want a one-on-one private session(s) to teach your dog "all the basics, and need to work on some issues individually before attending a group class, then our dog obedience private training program would be right for you. These sessions are held at our facility. We have all the equipment, dogs, and distractions we will need. See the different program we have on the Private Training page. 


Every potential service dog or therapy dog starts with the Puppy/Beginner classes followed by Middle School classes. Then when your dog is ready, the next step is the Canine Good Citizen (CGC) Prep class. See the Service Dog page for more information. Each program is individual and the cost will vary according to your goals. 


After your service dog in training passes the CGC Exam, we will start private sessions teaching him the tasks you want him to help you with according to your disability or emotional needs. Lastly, we will give him a Public Access Test (PAT). After he passes the PAT and everything is accomplished, he will be considered a Service Dog. Service Dogs have public access with their handler. 


After your therapy dog in training passes the CGC Exam, we will discuss therapy group organizations to join where you can go to assisted living facilities, hospitals, senior centers, to name a few. Most organizations require your dog to be an AKC Canine Good Citizen and have their own testing as well.
