We All Need Coaching!
Our SPCA Certified Trainer and Counselors use positive reinforcement training methods to achieve the desired behaviors from your dog. We provide both private customized training and owner coaching to attain training results quickly because we understand that you want the best for your dog but may have limited time. We show you how to give successful basic obedience commands such as:
- Go to your mat
- Leave it
- Loose leash walking
- Training includes on-leash and off-leash skills
It's for both you and your pet
We also offer private one-on-one training sessions with you and your dog covering everything from puppyhood basics like polite greetings and impulse control to more serious behavioral problems such as:
- Dog to dog aggression
- Dog to stranger aggression
- Resource guarding
- Excessive barking
- Separation anxiety

Our training is customized to you and your dog for fast results.
The first session includes general behavioral evaluation, diagnosis, and a treatment plan created by Top Dog SF’s Certified Trainer and Counselors.
Training plans along with the number of sessions are determined after initial assessment for specific training goals. Options include coached owner sessions as well as one on one day training with your dog.
We, like your dogs, will never stop learning!
