Experience the Difference with Private Dog Training in Oregon

Every dog is different, with a unique personality and learning needs. That’s why we only offer at-home private dog training to eliminate unnecessary distractions from classroom environments, personalized attention in the comfort of your home or in public places, and having to transport your dog to a training facility.

Keep in mind with puppies, all training can be completed indoors or outside. Your puppy is not required to have completed all vaccinations with our in-home private training. When your puppy has completed all vaccinations, we have several programs available to work with you and your puppy in public places such as local pet stores, shopping malls, and local and city parks.

This type of training is what your puppy and or adult dog needs, not classroom training. Anyone can teach a dog in a classroom. Take your dog out in public places and teach your dog or puppy to ignore distractions no matter where you are at.

Compared to group sessions, our dog trainers will give your dog and puppy the time and attention they need. This helps us create a stronger connection with your dog, so that we can provide training sessions that achieve more. Private dog training sessions are also important for shy, unsocialized, and fearful dogs with aggressive behaviors. 

Not only does private dog training make your life more convenient, but it also helps you create a deeper connection with your dog. Our trainers will teach you how to communicate with your dog, understand your dog’s body language, and create a stronger bond with your furry friend. 

If you need ongoing support, we will always be there for you with free phone consultations, follow-up visits, and even customized topics for your dog’s specific behaviors you may be experiencing.

How Smart Dog Pet Training Works

All of our dog training programs are force-free positive reinforcement in-home or distraction training in real world environments’ based on the specific needs of your dog, and we take a carefully focused approach with all of our clients. We take the clients and the dogs we train very seriously.

With puppy training, we start with the basics. There are hundreds of commands you can teach your new puppy. We keep it simple. We start with the absolute first three commands your puppy must learn:

  • Wait – Teaches patience and self-control
  • Leave-It – Means ignore
  • Watch Me – Focus on you, not distractions

    Other commands include sit, stay, down, place, crate training, potty training, and commands needed for your puppy’s specific behaviors.

    When your dog has all of it’s vaccinations and is safe to be out and about, we provide training for socialization skills, leash training, and recall with other dogs and people in different types of outside environments, such as pet stores, local and city parks, shopping malls and big brand outlet stores such as Lowes and Home Depot.

    For older dogs, or dogs with aggression, our approach is customized for your dog’s specific behavior and training needs for leash reactivity, resource guarding and aggression.

    Client Testimonials

    Honest opinions from real customers

    “Lori was wonderful Albany dog trainer to have train our Aussie. She was able to help with our needs in as little as 2 weeks, then we were able to start on something else! She was assuring, respectful, knowledgeable, and truly showed she cared not only for our pup but for our families opinions as well. Manager also was wonderful to us, making sure we got the correct services we needed for our pup. I would recommend Smart Dog Services to friends and family.” K. Luna.

    “My husky mix is a rescue pup who has intense separation anxiety, kenneling him seemed like a lost cause (as he ate through 3 kennels), He was marking in our home, and destroying our things. Glenn, our Salem dog trainer, was so helpful, he took the time to listen to all of our issues and hear us out. Within hours we had Brodi “kenneling up” within the week we had him staying in his kennel for the whole day. Seriously saved us!!!!” C. Lambert.

    “We just finished our Salem puppy training classes and i couldn’t be happier. Nicole was our trainer and she was amazing. What I like best is that the training is personalized to fit your needs in your home” V. Lopez.

    If you have an adopted dog, or you are thinking about adopting a dog, it is important to work with a specialist who can help your dog unlearn any negative behaviors they may have previously developed. Our team of Oregon-based dog trainers takes a gentle, positive approach to training adopted dogs because we believe all dogs deserve a second chance.

    We believe every dog deserves a second chance in life and with the proper love, attention, and training, young or old, your new family member can be that special companion. That’s why we offer discounts off of any of our training programs for any dog that has been adopted or rescued from any adoption or rescue organization anywhere in the country.
