We have manners, puppy, behavior, sports, play, and kids’ classes, taught by experienced professionals who understand dog behavior and use only force-free, positive training. Force-free training is effective, builds trust and cannot cause pain, aggression, or fear in dogs.
Training can be fun!
Your Dog’s Friend follows Montgomery County Government COVID-19 guidelines. Therefore, masks are no longer required for classes at the Training Center, and there are no restrictions on capacity.
We believe that fewer dogs will be given up to shelters if we can help people understand what their dogs need and how their dogs learn.
So, we have workshops and webinars that are free – guidance for new adopters and presentations on all sorts of behavior, training, and health issues.
Some of our previous workshops are online for you to view any time.
Our newsletters include dog behavior articles, upcoming free workshops, new classes, training tips, and more!
Join over 8,000 dog lovers just like you.
We never share or sell your personal information. Never.
