At Chow Bella we strive to create the best possible training experience for you and your pet. We believe training should be fun for you and your furry best friend! We use effective, science-based positive reinforcement training to help you teach and maintain the behaviors you want to see in your dog. Using this type of training creates a strong bond between you and your dog based on love, mutual trust, and cooperation. We do not use or recommend aversive methods or equipment that utilize fear, pain, or intimidation to train your dog. Instead, we use methods that help you learn to communicate effectively with your dog and build a positive working relationship.
Positive reinforcement based training is incredibly powerful. Let us show you what it can do for you and your pet!
Family Dog Intermediate Skills
Family Dog Intermediate Skills class is designed for dogs who have completed our Puppy Foundations or Family Dog Foundations programs. This 6-week course will build on what you and your dog have learned so far, taking you to the next level. Continuing to use positive methods that build a strong bond between owner and dog, this course will help your dog reliably respond to cues despite distraction or distance. Additionally, your dog will have the opportunity to build a longer duration stay and to learn the heel and place cues. This class is ideal for those who want their dogs to listen in more distracting environments and is an important step toward a well-behaved family dog.
Dogs who have completed basic training elsewhere and want to join this class without taking a Foundations Class first should
