Training

Want a Well Behaved Dog?
We Know just the Trick.

Come. Sit. Stay a while. After a short time at Best Friends, your wish for a “good dog” is our command.


Terry McGregor- Trainer

Terry is our primary trainer. He offers a special 2-week Board and Train. Terry will teach your dog to walk on a loose leash next to you without pulling, automatically sit when you stop walking, lay down on command, and stay.

Terry can also make progress on many behavioral issues such as jumping on people, inappropriate chewing, and mouthing. Upon completion of the program, Terry meets with you family to review all of the training techniques. With these tips, you can enjoy years with your well-behaved dog. Call us to schedule a time to visit with Terry and our unique Board and Train option.
