Training Company LLC

  Alexandria, VA

UPDATE:  Alexandria Dog Training Company will begin outdoor on-leash lessons soon, starting with clients who were actively taking lessons in March when the shutdown began. I will be contacting people to reschedule in the next few weeks. Going forward, masks covering both nose and mouth and a Covid-19 waiver will be required. Initial consultations and Preschool will continue as online sessions via Skype. Thanks all and be well!

Covid-19/Coronavirus Update:

Alexandria Dog Training Company is now offering initial Consultations and Preschool sessions via Skype. Please CALL for further info: (703) 626-7809. 

Given current covid-19 restrictions, all outdoor lessons are postponed until restrictions are lifted.  Initial consultations and Preschool can be done via Skype and will be the same as if done in person. 

These restrictions are so hard on all of us, including extremely small businesses, and I appreciate everyone's support.  Be well and see you soon!

Alexandria Dog Training Company offers experienced, professional training and instruction with hundreds of dogs trained one-on-one and over 35 years of experience.  Lessons are available at your convenience, including weeknights.

Free Consultation

Your dog can learn the following exercises and respond on one command:

* Heel on a loose leash at your side
* Sit automatically when you stop walking
* Sit Stay and Down Stay
* Extended Down Stay (stay for fifteen minutes and up)
* Down from a distance
* Come when called and sit at your side
* Out of Sight Stays (dog stays put when owner is not in sight -- on leash with dog being monitored for safety)

Your dog will learn to respond promptly the FIRST time you ask, not make you say it over and over or ignore you altogether. 

The consultation offers the trainer an opportunity to get some background on the dog's behavior at home, discover what difficulties you may be having, and assess the dog's personality and temperament in order to tailor training techniques to the individual animal and customize training to suit your family. The consultation also provides an opportunity for you to ask any questions you may have.

If you would like to schedule a consultation (which runs approximately one hour), please fill out the form on this page and you will be contacted to set up an appointment.  Please include your dog's age, breed, a phone number, and your location (city, state).  Thank you!
