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. For in-person, on-leash lessons, you will need to sign a waiver on the first in-person lesson. On-leash lessons are outdoors so masks are no longer required. I'm fully vaccinated but also always carry a mask with me and am perfectly happy to wear one if you are not yet vaccinated, so please don't hesitate to request that masks be used. Be well!

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 CALL and LEAVE A MESSAGE with Breed (or mix) and Dog's Age at (703)626-7809. Thank you!
